After watching hours of Jedi Fallen Order while working, it's really nailed home the point that western developers just can't make a frame-perfect action game like Dark Souls or Nioh. Feels like there's just too much inherent jank in western action games.

 
 
 

Man, I really like it when my PC games work and playing on a G-Sync monitor is awesome, but it sure is a fucking hassle a lot of the time to get things to run correctly. I feel like I spend more time fucking with settings than playing. Consoles are easy.

 
 
 

Man, I picked up Doom 2016 after waiting so long and hearing about how amazing it is. I'm bummed because I'm not feelin' it at all. It just doesn't feel like Doom to me. The melee for health mechanic is really not for me, and feels too forced. Bummer :(

 
 
 

What if Bluepoint Games was remaking the original Silent Hilll... I'm playing some Silent Hill 2 right now and thought of all those bullet points and it kinda makes sense if you think about it. Probably not what they're doing but it checks all the boxes.


 
 
 

Just got the Humble Bundle for this month and I'm never going to play Call of Duty WWII if anyone wants the Steam key for it. Lemme know in the comments and I'll send it over to ya.

 
 
 

Just wanted to tell you that after playing a few hours of Urban Reign, it's now one of my top 10 favorite PS2 games. It has the most incredible combat system I've seen in a beat 'em up and could be its own fighting game. I wish Namco would remaster it.

 
 
 

Streaming some launch PS2 From Software action with Eternal Ring tonight if you wanna come tell me how to do things better and watch me die more than I do in Souls games. Finally got a damn camera set up! https://www.twitch.tv/steel%20

 
 
 

After getting a BC 60gb fat PS3 and playing tons of PS2 games, it has killed my desire to play modern games at the moment. New games sure do look nice now, but man are they getting so boring. Too much playing it safe and money-grubbing these days. Bummer.

 
 
 

If you're a weird graphics nerd like me, you might enjoy this video. I'm resisting the urge to find an old CRT monitor now. Super interesting stuff though!



 
 
 

Hey ya'll, I'm gonna be a bit of a whore and ask for some follows on Twitch. I'd really appreciate it if you can stop by and make just one simple click for me! You don't even have to watch me, but it would be super helpful to get me up to 50 followers! :)


 
 
 

I've been browsing a lot of old used games online for the past few days and I'm just wondering... what the fuck are people doing with the instruction manuals for these games? So many of them are missing manuals... I just don't understand.

 
 
 

Just added this to the collection, in perfect condition too. Didn't play it the first time around, but the 15 minutes I just checked out seem very promising. I love PS2 era JRPGs so I'm pretty hyped.


 
 
 

Picked up some fun stuff from a local game shop to goof around with this weekend. Black label Chrono Cross definitely was the snag of the day though. Also a pristine Rygar for $6 wasn't too shabby either.


 
 
 

God damn, that Modern Warfare 2v2 Alpha is fun as hell. I was skeptical, but this is exactly what online shooters need right now. It's quick and to the point, no bulshit, no stupid gadgets, no building forts... somehow CoD is a breath of fresh air.

 
 
 

Finally finished The Last Guardian tonight... what a special game. Just left feeling like no other game has left me feeling. Man I love Ueda's games so much. I can't wait to see what's to come next generation.

 
 
 

After hooking up my PS2 and going back in time for a bit, I've decided that the PS2 is my favorite console and it's my favorite era of gaming as well, with the GameCube and OG Xbox. What's your favorite console and era? They don't have to be the same.

 
 
 

Would you pay $750-$800 for the PS5 if it was capable of playing all physical media spanning the entire PS1-PS4 library?

 
 
 

Oh man, Bloodstained is fucking great...

 
 
 

Been working my balls off lately, so I decided to treat myself to Samurai Showdown, CTR, and Bloodstained. Haven't done a nice splurge like this in a while and it feels real good, almost like my balls are coming back to life. These games are fun as hell.

 
 
 

Just watching Tim Schafer play Centipede. NBD. Pic in comments since Qtoid is acting weird.


 
 
 

Dang I ran into Dale North and freaked out Peter at E3 so far. First day was a success!

 
 
 

I wanna high five some Dtoid staff at E3. Where you at?

 
 
 

I've been playing Dreams early access and there's some really impressive stuff on it so far. There's also a lot of really rough stuff that makes you appreciate how much work it takes to make a good game and makes me appreciate my real games more now.

 
 
 

Apparently, codes for the Nioh 2 closed alpha are being emailed out to PSN folks. I just got one and I'm downloading that baby now. Gonna be a fun weekend now!

 
 
 

Picked up the Castlevania Anniversary Collection. Had $10 PSN credit and figured $10 total was worth it. It's pretty weird playing NES, SNES, Gameboy games on PS4. Now I really want a Ghouls n Ghosts collection including Maximo games from Capcom. Please.

 
 


About Steel Squirrelone of us since 7:45 PM on 09.07.2007

I've been around for a little while. I have stuff and things to say, but I don't always necessarily say them unless I feel like it's necessary.

I deleted all of my old blog posts quite a while ago in some kind of purge after feeling like I wanted a clean slate to start from.

I enjoy the video games and I enjoy discussing them. Sometimes I might seem like an asshole, but I'm really not. I'm pretty okay.

You're a good person. Don't let the discussing of video games make you a bad one.
