The spy action TV series Burn Notice will be expiring from Netflix next month. That's over 100 episodes gone. I really love that series, but if Netlfix lets it expire, it could be gone for good.

 
 
 

That is some awesome trolling by Zambia Tourism.


 
 
 

Why are the hitboxes in the Build engine (Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior classic) kinda wonky?

 
 
 
 

Cute female character? Check. Upbeat music? Check. Bright and colorful visuals? Check. Leaning on the 4th wall? Check. Game starts off easy than becomes rather difficult near the end? Check. Yup, it's an original WayForward game!



 
 
 

As stupid as the idea regulating bags of Skittles is, it's not entirely out there. Companies have produced containers of candy with only one flavor inside, such as strawberry Twizzlers or watermelon Laffy Taffy. That said, loot boxes are still gambling.



 
 
 

Why is it that people might talk about Yang Xiao Long's boobs or gauntlets, but never her wonderfully fluffy hair?


 
 
 

Ever wanted to go medieval on the demons in Doom?



 
 
 

The Red Solstice is free on Humble Bundle for around 40 hours!



 
 
 
 

RWBY needs more named and voiced waifus.

 
 
 

Pandora, just give me the studio versions of songs. The live versions do not sound as good.

 
 
 

The BFG chaingun could use some buffs, and I agree that the auto shotgun distortion is a bad idea.



 
 
 

The 2nd episode of Gungrave is rather meh. After a good pilot episode with 2 gunfights, we got a whole flashback episode with 0 gunfights. *sigh*

 
 
 

I think Renamon is just that "popular" because of how humanoid she looks, especially her hips.


 
 
 

Oh God, the stupidity and insanity of consuming Tide pods has made it to Brain Fight.



 
 
 

There goes the 4th wall in Ghost 1.0 It's a rather fun Metroidvania shooter, and it has a lot of funny moments.


 
 
 

Nope, loot boxes ARE a form of gambling. Money is exchanged to acquire them, and you can win a random prize. Maybe it's something good, maybe it's awesome, but it will probably be crap and/or another duplicate.



 
 
 

Well, Duke: Nuclear Winter isn't that good. The levels are confusing, 2 levels are from the original game, and having mandatory secrets is ill-advised. Context: I am playing Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition.

 
 
 

Wow, this mod looks pretty good for an alpha build, though too atmospheric for my taste.



 
 
 
 
 

Exclusive footage of Donald Trump at the White House:



 
 
 

Careful, Earth-chan. You don't want to cause any quakes.


 
 
 


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?
