"Tsunderes are actually complete pushovers!" I find that to be highly debatable, even in the context of a video game.


Is there ever such a thing as advertising being too truthful?


For as much as I prefer singleplayer games/modes, I gotta respect the sheer speed of a full team in Deep Rock Galactic. Even when all 4 players decide to be thorough, a single game can be shorter than 30 minutes, depending.


Of the world's top 10 weapon seller countries, 7 of them are definitely democracies. That is depressing.


The dev of Sky Rogue helped me fix the save file problem I had with that game, which is nice. Also, ALWAYS play the tutorials. You could discover useful info, like being able to repair your vehicle when you need to.


I seriously wonder why my cats make so much effort to run outside, only to demand to get back into the garage an hour or so later.


Enjoy the PS5, Jim. Being an early adopter also means dealing with the most launch problems. It's insane what bullshit scammers and scalpers have pulled with the launch of this console generation.


Transferring saves from old versions to new versions of Sky Rogue is more of a hassle than expected, though the dev does seem fairly active.


Why they chose Fartnite as the game to stream while evangelizing through Twitch is beyond me. Fartnite may be popular (for now), but they could have picked something with calmer gameplay, like Euro Truck Simulator.


Prodeus's plasma rifle > Doom 4's plasma rifle > Doom 3's plasma rifle >>>>> Doom Eternal's plasma rifle (as far as the aesthetics go).


Prodeus has some very kickass music. Most appropriate for such a fast-paced shooter.


Would Prodeus be eligible for end of the year awards, though it's still in Early Access?


Fuck the scalpers and their greed. If retailers like Walmart can enforce purchase limits on toilet paper during a pandemic, they could and should enforce purchase limits on video game consoles prior to and during launch.


Having played the alpha campaign, beta playtest, and the Early Access versions of Prodeus, calling it a proper Doom 3 or a HD Brutal Doom are both appropriate options. So glad I backed this rather than Hellbound.


Well, looks like some of the technical problems at IndieGala have been solved, though different problems have appeared. Still, they probably get a lot of traffic each day.


If anyone wants an Epic Games Store beta code for Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy, tell me that you want it, and I will give you the code through a Dtoid private message.


Got my stuff from Kurzgesagt awhile ago. The calendar cover is quite shiny, the artwork inside is pretty good, and the duck plushie is quite soft. Oh, and unlike freaking AMAZON, they actually put enough packing material in the box.


This is both funny and depressing! Part 2 has also been made. I can only imagine the insanity Part 3 will cover, like Drumpf not conceding an election he lost.


Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris! Bye bye to the Russian asset Donald Drumpf and his appointed enablers!


Well, Georgia and Pennsylvania might have to do a recount, the Lincoln Project is surprisingly still in this fight for Georgia runoff elections, but this is truly the beginning of the end of the nightmare that began in 2017. Donald Trump has been fired!


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?
