I got up painfully early today to take someone to the airport so I may as well recap while listening to a metal album I need to review. As you can see, I'm trying to be very productive this morning but I'm tired, my coffee is cold, and this album is far from good. I'm a little punchy this morning so let's talk about something I don't understand in video games.
Remember the first time you played an FPS and you could look down and see your feet? "Woah!" I though as I looked straight down in Halo 2 and jumped a few times. Problem is the way the animation was, all I could really see was the lower portion of the legs doing something that looked like a knees to chest type thing you see in the Insanity workout informercials.
Another thing is that your posture must be atrocious if that is all you can see. I look straight down, I can see most of my body, for better or for worse. I wonder at what angle you're craning your neck over, constantly. Even current generations games do this when the legs are included. Are characters models all designed like an early cro magnon man? Perhaps. Or maybe all video characters are actually Earthworm Jim.
Now let's recap.
* - Sciony beat Demon Souls and writes a hilarious blog telling us all about it. The War of the Spanish Succession chart killed me.
* - A very heartfelt poem remembering Ryan.
M - JasonMacurey let's us know about the best options out right now for using a controller for the iPad.
A - SleepyFunny gets into how he's treated life like the respect bar in GTA 2. I just hope he hasn't graduated to GTA IV where his cousin wants to go bowling all the Goddamn-fucking-time.
A - Is the Ouya the console to have on when your girlfriend is around? Mikewa-ey thinks so.
R - Some nice words for Ryan Davis, may he rest in peace.
T - Shuuda-y gives us the scoop of a cool little game called Capsized.
T - Aoshisaney gives us his brief thoughts on COD vs Battlefield and how the argument is invalid.
T - GreaterThanGamey thinks Skyrim is overrated and makes some good points. Do you agree?
T - Oney offers his DOTA2 impressions. The bit about it appearing as boring as dicks really made me laugh.
R - Seymoury let's us know about Google's awesome point and click game about Roswell on their homepage. Bravo.
C - We get a few details on Hearthstone's latest move but the information is lacking and may not be reliable.
Christ, I'm tired. I hate this album. I hate my coffee. A mosquito just fucking bit me. I love you guys, though. I mean not like 'love you,' love you but you know, a few drinks in me and I might...
