Does anyone else think that the assets in a RTS game could work quite well in a top-down/twin stick shooter, especially with some texture improvements?

 
 
 

Why are women so underrepresented as player characters in shooter video games?

 
 
 
 
 

Pearson Education is a shitty company. Their software is shit and overpriced. Their books are expensive and shitty. Their recommended assignments are shit and an absolute waste of time. I would love to see those fuckers go bankrupt.

 
 
 

3 different incarnations of Earth-chan for Earth Day!


 
 
 
 

How much does military training for infantry soldiers tend to increase the mass and size of the human body on average?

 
 
 

I am using a History Channel bookmark with the portraits of the USA Presidents on it. The last portrait is of Barack Obama. I don't want an updated version.

 
 
 

Dtoid is acting weird for me. The banner logo doesn't appear on any page, I don't see any of the header images on the front page, and here in Qtoid, all the user's avatars aren't shown, at least on the QPost. What's going on?

 
 
 

The new early reveal games for Humble Bundly Monthly are rather meh. A pixel art roguelike/lite, a weird indie game about a car, and a physics puzzle game.

 
 
 

Woah, Gideon. I never expected a vehicle AI to call someone a bitch, though she totally deserved it. Also, watching Nate trip balls on Legends of Tomorrow was funny.

 
 
 

The fuck is it with country people and shovels as a murder weapon? They're not very efficient. The force is displaced over a wide area, the shovel head can get bent and reduce its effectiveness, and the long handle means more energy will be consumed.

 
 
 

The RTS genre is one of the video game genres that has benefited the most in the change from 2D pixel art to 3D graphics. Even early 3D RTS games just seem so much better than the later pixel art RTS games prior to 3D graphics becoming common.

 
 
 

Neo Yokio is a boring, pretentious, snobby, and garbage anime where nothing happens. Fuck that! Why Netflix bothered with even 6 episodes of this crap is beyond me. Somehow, it is an even worse anime than Shattered Angels, a feat I thought impossible.

 
 
 
 

I think the movie "Don't Kill It" is meant with mess with audience members who prefer to deal with blatant evil in an obvious way: murder the evil. See a demon rampaging through a town? Shoot it with holy bullets. However, that doesn't work here.

 
 
 

Scott Pruitt is so corrupt and stupid that even the fossil fuel industry lobbyists are pissed off with him. Pruitt isn't just a swamp thing. He's a swamp bottom thing.

 
 
 

Satellite Reign is free on Humble Bundle's store for a little over a day right now!



 
 
 
 

Whoever designed the weekly class schedule of my current English class is a fucking moron. They have high point value assignments due early or middle of the week instead of at the last day, and low point value assignments appear all over the week.

 
 
 

Why would Americans like the CIA, Department of Defense, and the fucking Department of Homeland Security more than the Social Security Administration? The CIA is always involved in nasty shit, the DOD wastes money on useless war machines and FUCK the DHS.

 
 
 
 

When dusting the inside of one's computer desktop tower, make sure to carefully dust the exhaust fan. My exhaust fan got covered with so much old dust I had to use a Kleenex to remove the dust rather than a can of compressed air.

 
 
 

So, James Comey is making the rounds on the news networks, shitbag Sean Hannity is a Kremlin mouthpiece, and one of FCC fuckhead Ajit Pai's lackeys has been arrested and charged with fraud. Hopefully, this week will get worse for Drumpf and his enablers.

 
 


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?
