What are your thoughts on Doom 3 and Quake 4?

 
 
 

For a kids' show, Voltron Legendary Defender sure has a high body count.

 
 
 
 

Allegedly, this year's Steam Summer Sale will be this Thursday. I hope they still have vote-based sales and a decent gimmick for the event this year.

 
 
 

When and why was the file upload limit changed from 3 MB to 2 MB?

 
 
 

Hey Dtoiders, any of you playing or replaying Rage?

 
 
 

Jeff Sessions is a child-stealing, evil, and soulless fascist. The sooner Drumpf's regime meets its downfall and he and his minions are in prison, the better.



 
 
 

The Quirky Domain looks like a fun and Lovecraftian map, but Umbra of Fate could use some changes to the boss fights.



 
 
 
 

I have 2 Steam coupons that are about to expire very soon and I will give them away to anyone that asks for them. I have 25% OFF Antigraviator For Gas Guzzlers Extreme Owners and 70% OFF Galactic Civilizations III For GC2 Owners.

 
 
 

Why do potato products reheat so poorly in microwave ovens?

 
 
 
 

This might sound a bit heretical, but the space game genre is starting to get a little crowded on Steam.

 
 
 

I wouldn't say that Sony's or Square Enix's press conferences were that good, but they also didn't drop the ball like EA.


 
 
 

Quake Champions is free until the 18th. If you get the game for free, it basically works on a free to play system. 1 champion is given for free. 1 champion can be acquired through the tutorials, and 1 other champion is on a daily rotation.

 
 
 

Hey Twizzlers, I like your Rainbow candy straws, but please change the grape flavor. I don't like the way it currently tastes.

 
 
 

So, that Agony game sounds pretty bad, at least according to Yahtzee's review of it. I get that some devs want to let the player just explore the mechanics of the game, but giving an explanation for when those mechanics are needed is necessary.

 
 
 

Bleh, I hate summer. It's too hot, it's too humid, it's too sweaty, and even for indie games, it can be so barren for entertainment. I prefer a whiteout so much over this. As long as the electricity stays on.

 
 
 

So, multiple world religions have holidays with variable dates. WHY!?!?!

 
 
 

Denuvo deserves to go bankrupt. I do not need or want their fucking almost malware on my PC just to play a game. So many of the games that use that shit have already been cracked, and a few thankfully got rid of it altogether. DRM should be banned.

 
 
 

Altreich-"A derogatory term used to describe the alt-right nationalist movement in the United States, known for white supremacist and neo-nazi views" - Wikipedia "white supremacist" "neo-nazi" It's a valid insult, then.

 
 
 

The earliest FPS is either Maze War or Spasism. They both predate Doom and Wolfenstein 3D by over a decade.

 
 
 

Fringe Wars was one of the games shown in the montage at the Xbox conference. I get making quality assets takes time, but don't pull this crap.



 
 
 

The Xbox conference was pretty decent. I saw some games that look great, some that look interesting but could have serious technical problems, and some games I really wanted to see actual gameplay of.

 
 
 

During the Xbox conference, what was the title of that really colorful hack and slash game set in Medieval times, sometime around when they showed off a ton of games in one minute?

 
 


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?
