Well, the Destroy All Humans! GOG demo is rather short, but it did its job. The game seems to run well, other than the cutscenes, and I hope the rest of the game will be great.

 
 
 

Trevor Noah's brand of comedy is just too mild for me. He seems too polite and unwilling to take greater risks.

 
 
 

If The Final Destination had any moral of the story it would be one or either of these: don't skip on maintenance, and be careful where you leave things. Or just that death is a cheater.

 
 
 

All things considered, I think that Metal Unit is the closest we will get to an Edge of Tomorrow video game.

 
 
 

I saw The Naked Gun today, since it will soon be expiring from Netflix. It was pretty good, and had the best baseball game I've watched in a while. Though said baseball game was rather abbreviated and not chaotic enough.

 
 
 

My fluffy cat Scully is shedding her winter coat, and it's over 70 F here in Michigan. I am gonna miss that extra fluff. Oh well, at least she seems to be more actively hunting now. :(

 
 
 
 
 

I swear, finding regular lasagna Hamburger Helper during this pandemic at Walmart is like getting a legendary weapon in Borderlands 2 before the loot drop rate supposedly went up. Even though I arrived earlier than usual, many of the box dinners were gone

 
 
 

A lot of Steam users are complaining about the machine learning used by the Spring cleaning event, and I agree with many of them. DEWEY should not recommend games that are: hidden, the user wrote a negative review for, and/or are labeled as beta.

 
 
 

Of the 3 games the Steam Spring cleaning selected for Old Flame for me, Serious Sam is the only good one. One of the other choices was Mighty No. 9. I really wanted to forget MN9.

 
 
 

Pyrrha Nikos looks very cute in the Half-Genie hero art style!


 
 
 
 

I personally consider several cases of review bombing (Denuvo anti-cheat in Doom Eternal, paid mods in Fallout 4, etc.) to be both legitimate forms of protest and reviews. I am just fine with Steam keeping those along with other reviews.

 
 
 

Well, the Gnasty Gnorc fight of Spyro the Dragon is total bullshit. No one told me it would involve too much racing and platforming just to fight the final boss.

 
 
 

Xenoraptor is definitely the most metal twin stick shooter there is. That said, those laser skulls are really annoying.

 
 
 

Well, that's all of Void Bastards. Good game, though the ending is very disappointing.

 
 
 

Huh, I didn't really expect to see Gritty curtsy. Also, it's pretty cool of LWT to sponsor the Marble League.



 
 
 

The Tree Tops level of Spyro the Dragon sucks. The previous levels were relatively easy, and then we get this convoluted mess! Ugh.

 
 
 

Lego Ninjago The Movie is also free on Steam right now.

 
 
 

I don't think I've heard Grey swear this much before. Yeah, those critters moving around in the dark would make it a creepy place. That location could definitely be inspiration for the next proper Fallout game.



 
 
 
 

A lot of people depend upon the USPS for mail and deliveries. Losing them or having reduced service would be a massive problem for many citizens. Keeping the USPS around is a necessity.



 
 
 

Most of the time I see a railgun in a video game, it's usually a sniper or artillery weapon. Rapid fire railguns are only somewhat more common (in the games I've played) than a laser rotary cannon.

 
 
 

Well, I never thought a fanservice anime like Maken Ki! would take a dig on Japanese education of WW2. Also, the episode right after that was whack. Season 2 of that show has been so weird and where's the overarching plot?

 
 


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?
