Humble has the Humble Idea Factory Bundle going on right now. It's a mixed bag. Some of them are pretty good or more famous, while others are rather meh.

 
 
 

Well, several pounds of bacteria in one place looks like congealed vomit. That's grosser than anything out of Dead Space or Resident Evil.

 
 
 

Breaking reality and biology to end world hunger? Seems legit.



 
 
 

Tumblr has decided to get in on having companies and fictional characters banned in China. It would be hilarious to see Disney banned in China, unlikely though that would be.


 
 
 

Of course the appointee Drumpf would choose to head the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration would be someone who could ruin it to get even more ill-gotten cash.



 
 
 

We need more schadenfreude at Blizzard's expense.



 
 
 

I hate hornets so much. Damned bugs. The only thing hornets are useful for is that their larvae makes good food for chickens.



 
 
 
 

Well, Sound and Fury by Sturgill Simpson was pretty meh to me. Some of the tracks and video clips were decent, others just went on for too long. Also, I didn't like how the story jumped all over the place.

 
 
 

A redhead sword waifu with modern clothes? Yes.


 
 
 

The player ships for Everspace 2 are looking pretty good so far, though the heavy ships seem a bit too blocky in this early stage. Their Kickstarter currently has about 55% funding.



 
 
 

Well, the first episode of the English dub of the Azur Lane anime was pretty good. In my opinion though, they did go a bit heavy on the accents of the Royal Navy shipgirls.

 
 
 
 

Well, that's one way to turn Earth into a super star.



 
 
 

Downfall Hitler:"The free world supposedly fought me to protect freedom and now they're colluding with communists to censor people." Hitler being pissed about companies censoring people, this is new.



 
 
 

So far, Cautious Hero is a nice take on the isekai setup where the hero is so overpowered early on. Plus, it has a goddess as a comedy character.

 
 
 

Is this song about masochism, an abusive ex, or something else?



 
 
 

Despite the theme of Darling in the Franxx, the piloting setup used in the mechs is illogical and inefficient. A side by side setup, with both pilots sitting upright on the same couch would be better and still allow for the theme of the series.

 
 
 

I played the browser game Impeached. First time, I tried being vaguely competent, filled the meters, and nothing happened. 2nd time, I tried to be the absolute worst, and got impeached. The game has a clear message.

 
 
 

If you were running a space empire, space republic (or any sort of interstellar state), how many inhabited planets would it have to possess before an entire planet was used as a parking structure and nothing else?

 
 
 

"Abolish ICE. [...]Fuck Trump." Exactly! Fuck all authoritarian governments and leaders, regardless of which nation-states they're in.



 
 
 
 

Screenshot from Mothergunship. This ungodly abomination isn't so much a tower of guns as it is a wall of guns. It takes up too much screen space, fires continously for about 2 seconds, and probably couldn't happen in a normal level.


 
 
 
 

It seems that a hit and run playstyle is quite encouraged for DmC: Devil May Cry. Also, Everspace 2 is close to 50% of its Kickstarter funding goal.

 
 


About Electric Reaperone of us since 10:55 AM on 08.12.2013

I am a gamer who prefers games that are more about action than story; especially shooters, action RPG's and hack-and-slashers. I often don't care that much about a video game's story, and instead focus on the weapons instead: how they sound, how they fire/attack, how they look, how they function, and how the more unusual weapons may work. Sometimes a game may be great in just about every category, but I might just ignore it for using boring conventional guns that I've shot a million times.

I am into sci-fi, supernatural, and mecha anime/TV shows/movies/games. I don't care that much about photorealism, unless it drags the gameplay down.



Over the years, I have seen a lot of stupid/unwanted things in the video game industry. Online passes for multiplayer, on-disc downloadable content, day one DLC in Mass Effect 3, pre-order bonuses for Brink, multiple versions of Evolve, collector's edition for the first Watch Dogs game, microtransactions in Dead Space 3, and more. I have also seen things that get in the way of the customer accessing the game they legally bought. SecuROM in Crysis, Games For Windows Live in Red Faction Guerilla (removed over a year ago) SecuROM AND GFWL in Bioshock 2 (both removed years ago), always online DRM in Dead Space 2, Origin in Mass Effect 3, and Denuvo anti-tamper in Doom 4 (it might not get in the way of playing the game but I still have a deep-seated hatred for it). Why does the game industry keep doing this crap? Is ticking off your customers with these draconian measures really worth a week or a few months of zero piracy?
