Most cats run when they hear the sound of a vacuum cleaner. These kitties, not so much.




 
 
 
 

I just received a Steam coupon for Aegis Defenders for owners of Hollow Knight. Anyone want the coupon?

 
 
 

Wut. The next Death Battle is (Teen Titans) Raven vs Twilight Sparkle? Oh boy. 2 high level reality warpers blasting the crap out of each other could be interesting.

 
 
 

Senator Rand Paul should fuck off and leave office.

 
 
 

For a terrorist organization, ISIL sure has a lot of artillery guns and vehicles, including some tanks and jets. Many are from the Soviet Union, which isn't surprising. A lot of their vehicles have been destroyed. Also, they even have some STG-44 rifles.

 
 
 

I think Jaune gets genderbent the most often of any RWBY character. Also, Ruby and Jaune look great in each other's outfits.


 
 
 

Since Electronic Arts clearly can't be bothered to do anything with their large stable of inactive IP's they should just sell them off to developers that would do something with them. A new Crysis, Dead Space, or Command & Conquer game would be nice.

 
 
 

Just where/how do Phineas & Ferb get all the funding for their shenanigan projects? "It's just a cartoon" isn't good enough since the series villain made it clear where he got his money from.

 
 
 

Seriously Miley Cyrus, dafuq happened to you?


 
 
 

Welp, "Thy Flesh Consumed" is one difficult Doom 1 episode, even on the lowest difficulty setting.

 
 
 
 

Is Nintendo Everything considered a trustworthy source? Apparently, Yang Xiao Long and Blake Belladonna will now be free DLC characters in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Also, they seemed to have made Yang's breasts bigger, not that I mind. Link in comments.


 
 
 

Donald Drumpf wants a military parade in Washington, D.C. "like the one in France". That fucking wannabe dictator. This is a horrible and expensive waste of money. Those tanks and missile launchers would be really bad for D.C.'s roads.

 
 
 

Are there any Fate series (anime, manga, game, spin-off, doujinshi) that DON'T end up dark and/or depressing?

 
 
 

Why does Europe go through hell in every Command & Conquer game?

 
 
 

I swear, the AAA publishers waste far too much money on marketing. A few decent gameplay trailers on certain TV networks and video game sites can go a long way. Also, those entries for the horrid spider contest were awesome. Some of them were cute.



 
 
 
 

Bleh. I hate timed missions, and I hate them even more in RTS games. Halo Wars, WHY do you have timed missions at all?

 
 
 

The title of the video game "Halo Wars" is a bit misleading, as apparently none of the missions take place on the gamma ray emitting Installations.

 
 
 
 

Cortex Command is free for a limited time on Steam right now!

 
 
 

For a 2003 RTS game, Command & Conquer Generals is awesome and so much better than the original C&C.

 
 
 

So glad that Vandread is a comedy. Also, the main starship has a really weird rearming department for their fighters.

 
 
 


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?
