One of the most annoying things about Doom mods is when the author of a WAD or PK3 file decides to prevent jumping. I get that it's done in some cases to prevent the mod from having technical problems, but other times it's never explained why.

 
 
 

Alice 3 sucks. I don't know what I did, but the program glitched out and starting displaying random fragments of itself in its own window.

 
 
 

Just changed a burnt-out incandescent lightbulb for an LED lightbulb. Now the light in the dining room has a bit of blue hue to it, along with the yellow hint from the incandescent bulbs. Do white LED bulbs very often give off blue-tinged light?

 
 
 

The season 3 finale of Dark Matter was awesome. A big space battle, intrigue, firefights, setting up more plot threads, and then cliffhanger, UGH. SyFy canceled the series, because they are run by a bunch of morons.

 
 
 

So, Steam Direct seems to have no standards, other than not seriously pissing off the Steam staff, while Steam Early Access seems to have some actual standards. Can we get the current Early Access crew to take over Direct?

 
 
 

Hey Dtoiders, when you have the money and time to buy and install more energy efficient light bulbs, do you install them right away, or let the older bulbs burn out first?

 
 
 

It's 2017 and I am still using incandescent light bulbs to decorate a Christmas tree.

 
 
 

See that huge orange gun in the center of the image? This is a screeshot from Livelock, and that gun is more like a rifle than a BFG 9000. 50 caliber weapons are used as dual wielded SMG's. The real BFG's (the launchers) appear smaller than this gun.


 
 
 

My favorite gimmick of any of the big Steam sales was the auction that gave us Steam gems. A lot of items were being auctioned off for way above retail price, but some of the less known/loved games were fairly cheap after a while.

 
 
 

If you should power off your phone for an interview, shouldn't you do the same for an exorcism? Getting a phone call while trying to drive a demon out of someone is a needless distraction.

 
 
 

Is Youtube's site acting weirdly for anyone? For me, I can click on the play button several times, but the video won't play, and sometimes reloading the video won't fix this.

 
 
 

I honestly prefer the platforming in Doom 4 over the platforming in Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag.

 
 
 

Seriously Neo, where the hell have you been since RWBY Volume 3? Quietly robbing banks? Drinking yourself stupid? Torturing random Grimm? Adding to your umbrella collection? Stalking team RNJR? Wishing Cinder Fall would call and say "Hi"?


 
 
 

I actually hope they'll complete all 12 verses.



 
 
 
 

Homefront, that 2011 FPS where North Korea took over the USA, is free on Humble Bundle for around 2 days. I beat that game long ago, and consider it mediocre, at best.

 
 
 

On the one hand, Team Black of Fate/Apocrypha has a theoretically immortal Nazi for a leader. On the other hand, they have Frankenstein and Astolfo, the latter of whom is easily excited and sounds like a girl.

 
 
 

Has there even been a Fate series where all Masters and/or Servants are female?

 
 
 

The episode "One More Card to Play" of Dark Matter was really interesting. It has so many schemes and counter schemes. Also, that scene where the 2 androids talk in the forest had a unique kind of humor to it.

 
 
 

Israel moving its capital to Jerusalem seems like a really bad idea, in my opinion. Other than increasing tension and violence with Palestine, Jerusalem is considered a holy city for 3 major world religions. I cannot see this ending well.

 
 
 

Electronic Arts has gotten Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation so riled up with Star Wars Battlefront 2, that even he wants governments to write legislation for video games. Wow.

 
 
 

Paul Manafort, you are one dense motherfucker.



 
 
 

One thing I cannot tolerate in a video game is throwing away ammo during a reload (except in Borderlands 2 to an extent). This annoying bit of realism is just so frustrating, that I won't even play a free game with this crap, like Alien Swarm.

 
 
 

A big wind storm raged through mid-Michigan earlier today. A lot of people in several towns and cities are without power, power lines are down, and trees fell on some power lines. Thankfully, the power here only briefly went out twice, while I was asleep.

 
 


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?
