If you have a Steam copy of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, now is a great time to play it, as the Steam trading cards for that game are selling at pretty decent prices and they're selling quickly.

 
 

Some Steam trading cards just aren't worth the effort to farm them. Some have both crap gem values and crap real currency values, so they're not really worth selling, or the time it takes to mulch them.

 
 

Really now, Humble Bundle? Your next early unlocks for the June Monthly are a cooking game and a visual novel? Snore. Unless you have something awesome for July, I'm canceling my subscription.

 
 

Neil Gorusch has decided forced arbitration clauses preventing employees from using class action lawsuits against shitty employers is totally fine. Neil Gorsuch can eat shit and go fuck himself. We should have had Merrick Garland. Fuck Mitch McConnell.

 
 

Why does Killer is Dead have so many and so very long cutscenes? Why can't I exit the game from the mission select menu?

 
 

Since Humble Bundle's sale is continuing, they have a new series of stamps for rewards. The stamp for the 4th reward this time is Fortified.

 
 

DC's Legends of Tomorrow is like Power Rangers Time Force for teenagers, grown-ups and with a larger budget.

 
 

Killing Floor 2 is more of a roguelike than Brigador. All the equipment and vehicles in Brigador are acquired through a permanent unlock system. Better equipment in KF2 has to be purchased in every different run.

 
 
 
 

Some people think this song is a bit dirty because they mishear the lyrics. Weird.

 
 
 

Does Starfire of Teen Titans have the ability to rapidly heal herself, kinda like Wolverine?

 
 

Why does Steam keep recommending card games to me? I don't think I own even a single Steam game with that tag applied to it.

 
 

These days, it seems like more Steam Early Access games are early or late betas rather than alphas or pre-alphas. Some of them can even be played through to a clear end and credits roll. While this is great, Valve seriously needs to fix Steam Direct.

 
 

Melissa Fahn (the English voice actress for Nep-Nep) also lends her voice as one of the voice options for the female player character in God Eater 2 Rage Burst. Neat.

 
 

I have a Steam coupon for 66% off X-Morph Defense (a twin stick shooter and tower defense game), and 60% off Solstice Chronicles MIA (a twin stick shooter with some RPG elements). If anyone wants them, just ask.

 
 

Really now? People think the rebooted Lost in Space robot is sexy? It's a great weapon of war, but there are far more attractive robotic waifus/husbandos out there, some of them equally capable of mass murder.

 
 

Mech games seem to be slowly reappearing. If they follow the same trend as space games, they might reach a peak in 2-7 years. Armed to the Gears, War Tech Fighters, Project Nimbus, Break Arts 2, Battletech, and Brigador are all fairly recent Steam games.

 
 

Are refrigerator freezers with the freezer on the left and fridge on the right actually more energy efficient than models with the freezer on top and fridge on bottom?

 
 

Hell yeah! Mr. Icarus finally did a video on this mod. I actually learned about this mod on the ZDoom forums before seeing Icarus's uploaded video.

 
 

Really, this a "compromise" design? This tank carries 2 of the absolute biggest weapons in the game, can take tremendous amounts of abuse, and would terrify a Nazi P. 1000 Ratte. It's also probably faster than its ancestor. Screenshot from Brigador.


 
 
 

For some irredeemably stupid reason, torturer bitch Gina Haspel has been confirmed as CIA Director and got 6 votes from Democrats. FUCKING DIPSHITS!


 
 

Taco Bell (at least for the time being) has brought back the Naked Chicken Chalupa, now with a "Wild" spicy variant. I had 1 today, and it wasn't very spicy, even with 3 packets of Fire Sauce on it.


 
 

Whoever is in charge of the remodeling at the local Walmart is a fucking moron. They're replacing floor tiles, squished aisles closer together, the water refill machine still isn't working, and I have yet to hear about the leaky roof getting fixed.

 
 

Galactic Civilizations 2 Ultimate Edition is free on the Humble Store for 2 days!

 
 

I have a Steam coupon for 66% off X-Morph Defense, and 60% off Solstice Chronicles MIA. If anyone wants them, just ask.

 
 

Of course Deadpool would do this. He's a comedy character, The Late Show is a satirical series, Colbert helps promote various fictional works, and Deadpool got a great chance at giving biting social commentary.

 
 
 

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?
