Youtube has found yet another way to screw over content creators arbitrarily. Youtube's pro-corporate shit never ends.



 
 
 

Today is the first anniversary of Bowsette's appearance!


 
 
 

I have a Steam coupon for 25% off Police Stories. If anyone wants the coupon, let me know.



 
 
 

I doubt there exists a dumber and weirder Doom mod than Mr Smileys Head Safari. Video in comments.

 
 
 

Even Garfield's getting in on the Deal With It meme, though at least the glasses aren't pixelated.


 
 
 

So, AVP 2010 and Dead Space 1 share several stock horror sounds. That's kinda a bummer.

 
 
 

I am with Yahtzee on this one. The Marine campaign is just okay as far as FPS's go, and the Alien campaign is just kinda...there. It would have been nice if the devs nixed the Alien and Marine campaigns to improve and extend the Predator campaign.



 
 
 

I tried the demo for Daymare 1998 and I didn't like it. The game is similar to the Resident Evil games, but worse. For whatever dumb reason, the devs of Daymare 1998 added manual ammo management and overdosing for health items. Fuck that.

 
 
 

CGP Grey's dedication to research for this episode is most impressive, though staying in that rainstorm wasn't a great idea.



 
 
 

That's being unfair to cats, Oliver. Some cats are actually capable of detecting when a human is miserable and will attempt to brighten their day. All cats are individuals, so their behavior can vary significantly.



 
 
 

Biden is becoming more of an embarrassment to himself. I wish he would just drop out. His reliance on Obama has gotten old.



 
 
 

I like Legolas' crazy antics in the Lord of the Ring movies. They're outlandish and kinda wacky, which makes them fun to me.

 
 
 

The deep sea contains some of the weirdest and most interesting lifeforms on Earth.



 
 
 

What does someone do when arguably the most politically progressive city in their County is also the Florida (the place where the weird shit happens) of their County?

 
 
 
 

I played through the Steam demo for Blast-Axis, and it was pretty good! It's a 6DOF shooter in the vein of Descent, and several weapons have multiple ammo types. Also, that chainsaw on the drone does work.



 
 
 

Sweet, another new mech game for PC. This game looks closer to Armored Core than War Tech Fighters. It also has a Steam demo.



 
 
 

While that would be a rather unnerving sight, having that many spiders gathered in 1 area would cause a drastic decrease of insect pests.



 
 
 

I hope Doom Eternal has some similar to the Armored Offensive & Rich Get Richer combination from Doom 4. Running around through earlier levels with endgame weapons with infinite ammo was great.

 
 
 

35 perks in one level of Tesla vs Lovecraft in the Eldritch Plane. Sweet, sweet chaos. There's even 2 epic (very powerful gamechanger) perks in there.


 
 
 

Seeing Gandalf the White knock out a powerful idiot for saying something really stupid was funny, though it can't really compare with Legolas' shield-surfing. Context: Watching Lord of the Rings.

 
 
 

I got some of these Envy apples from Walmart, and I'm never getting them again. They are rather large, fairly sweet, but they are denser and harder than a pineapple core. These apples could possibly survive getting shot out of a cannon.



 
 
 

Looks like Borderlands 3 is having a rough launch on PC. Since Epic can't be bothered to have proper forums, users are taking their bug reports to Steam's BL2 forums and Reddit. This is one of the reasons why I rarely get games at launch.

 
 
 

Anyone ever just stare at the biggest windows in their house at night to see what moths and other nightly insects appear?

 
 
 

Tesla vs Lovecraft is pretty good, though the RNG the game uses can be very annoying. The game is more structured than Crimsonland, while being more chaotic than Jydge, 2 of 10tons' other shooters. The Fire Vampires suck, though.



 
 


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?
