I come on this morning and see Hypno has joined that Black and White gang I am so fearful of.


 
 
 

Playing games with great cinematography tickles that cinema-lover in me; People miss the point when they say that they want to make "cinematic" games. There's more to cinema than photorealism and hackneyed-plots.


 
 
 
 
 
 

Saw Black Panther and it was fine. A solid 7/10. The racial topics go from one extreme to the next; one moment it's a question of the benefits of isolationism... The next "slavery is very very bad" ad nauseum. Thanks film, didn't know that last part.

 
 
 

Just keep shilling. Just keep shilling. Just keep shilling, shilling shilling. (GM has a gun to my head, plz watch, link in comments.)


 
 
 

Roses are red. Violets are blue. If I met you guys in public, I'd probably f*** you. (Or take you out for a nice meal, depends on whether you're a Mike or a Malika).

 
 
 

2 truths 1 lie eh? What if I have no interesting truths and am not imaginative to think of an interesting lie... Fine. 1) GM is in love with me. 2) One of my favourite games is Modern Warfare 2. 3) I've been reading Destructoid since 09.

 
 
 

Sometimes my flirting isn't subtle.


 
 
 

The first Shadow of the Colossus picture I took when starting the game. Trying to apply my knowledge of film when taking these for some really good shots. They only get better after this one to be honest.


 
 
 

Just finished The Punisher TV series. Excellent, a slow boil yes but a very interesting take on the character and a nice exploration of trauma, loss and PTSD. Direction, cinematography and acting were all fantastic across the board. Here's to Season 2.

 
 
 

The Surge 2 (a sequel to one of the worst games of 2017) is coming out next year. Oh god please be better than the first.

 
 
 

Played Monster Hunter with GM last night and he goes and compares the game to Dark Souls which, in turn, caused me to have a minor headache and facial twitch out of both anger and sadness.

 
 
 

Really really trying to like Monster Hunter but just can't do it, which is a huge shame. What popular/beloved games have left you feeling confused as to what the hype is all about? For instance, I found Majora's Mask to be a fine, 6/10 experience.

 
 
 

I wish someone had warned me about how boring expedition missions were, because I honestly would rather be doing anything else right now.

 
 
 

May God have mercy on us all when I announce I have created a child. I lose track of my girlfriend in the house often enough let alone a smaller human.

 
 
 

Anytime someone comments on my accent, I can't help but think of them as a creepy Ben Stiller.


 
 
 

#shoutouttoid. Gotta give some love to GameManiac3434. I've put the guy through a lot (deservedly so) but he's taken it all on like a trooper, on top of putting up with me daily. He's a good guy at heart and a good friend. Shit taste in games though.

 
 
 

I hated the idea of Illumination animating the Mario movie; that was until I realised I'll get a rabid, unfiltered RalphtheMovieMaker review out of it.


 
 
 

Besides the awful way co op is implemented, Monster Hunter World is pretty good despite only being about 7-8 hours in.

 
 
 
 

Got into work. Found out I have the day off because I wasn't scheduled to work. Almost cried because I remembered that means it's time to hunt monsters.

 
 
 

I'm not playing Subnautica ever because after reading Lovecraft, the ocean terrifies me.


 
 
 

The girlfriend is finally feeling well enough to do things on her own, which means I can play some games (Monster Hunter), finish the Comments of the Week blog and treat her to a lasagna tonight. Hope ya'll are having a good day.


 
 
 

God of War comes out on April 20. Should be a good time to practice being a dad in the off chance I ever spawn some humans. Teach them how to hunt, kill things... The normal Limo-household affairs.

 
 


About TheLimoMakerone of us since 6:59 AM on 03.25.2015

Hello there. I'm insane. From England.
I love what you've done to your carpets.

The horror genre means a great deal to me (mainly as they give me excellent ideas on how best to dispose of my ex-girlfriend) and I have expressed my love for the genre in countless blogs which must be especially grating for the other members of Destructoid to read but, eh, f*** it.

I mainly game on the Playstation 4 and you are more than welcome to connect with me on there if you want but, if you're new here, interact with me a bit first because, believe me, I'm an acquired taste.
Well, acquired taste... Wanker.
Tomato, tomato.

As for some of my favourite games, they range from Silent Hill 2, Okami, Deadly Premonition, To the Moon, Undertale, Bloodborne, Bioshock... I will play anything as I find joy in the strangest of places.

Anyhow, if you actually read this (which nobody does anymore), don't ever feel afraid to start a conversation with me in the comments or on discord. I will give anyone the time of day.
So long as you aren't French of course.

Also decided to add my Games of the Year from years past, just because I can't really place my thoughts elsewhere:


2005 - Shadow of the Colossus

2006 - Okami

2007 - BioShock

2008 - Call of Duty: World at War

2009 - Batman Arkham Asylum

2010 - Nier

2011 - Portal 2

2012 - Spec-Ops: The Line

2013 - The Last of Us

2014 - Valiant Hearts

2015 - Undertale

2016 - Oxenfree
