Sudden Strike 4 not having the ability to summon/build more units is a terrible idea. An RTS where you can't train units as you wish is like a PC FPS without mouselook. What the hell where the devs thinking?

 
 

Stellaris is weird. The phrases Fanatic Pacifist and Fanatic Egalitarian don't make a lot of sense and why does it take FOREVER for the population to increase by one citizen?

 
 

I hope this rocket will entirely burn away as it uncontrollably plunges back into the atmosphere. Nevertheless, not having a way to control it was incredibly careless, negligent, and reckless of the CCP.

 
 

So basically, reason why the McDonald's ice cream machines are often broken is because of moneygrubbing corporate shitstains at the top of 2 old companies want to extract even more money from the franchisees. Got it.

 
 

If Darksiders 4 gets released, I hope it's closer to Borderlands or Doom 4 than Call of Duty, Halo, or Battlefield.

 
 

If the Webby Awards (which are still open to the public for voting) had a category for Most Overrated Game, The Last of Us Part 2 would win in a landslide.

 
 

I don't know what Juniper was expecting. She activated her giant monster form, used a voice changer to sound scarier and then still received headpats. Seems like pretty standard stuff.

 
 

The highlights for this month's Humble Choice are Fury Unleashed, Darksiders Genesis, Hellpoint, and Metro Exodus. I'm skipping this month. Already have the first 2 games, I can't stand Soulslikes, and Metro Exodus's weapons are disappointing.

 
 

Weird Weapon Wednesday. This is the Viper Bite from Ziggurat 2. It fires arcing poison shots and that Godddamned snake MOVES as part of the idle animation. That thing is seriously creepy! Ugggh, I hate snakes.


 
 
 

So, the new weapons in Ziggurat 2 are...interesting. The Viper Bite wand fires arcing poison shots. The Bonestorm Cutlass is an electric sword with cursed shots. The Power of Heart returned, with some improvements. Haven't used the Stormfury yet. :(

 
 
 

This channel has several videos of animated giant waifus, though this one is the only series while the rest of the videos are all separate.

 
 

That giant goat is so cursed that it has roughly a 50/50 chance of surviving. Lately though, they have stepped up security so I doubt it will burn to the ground in 2021.

 
 

Except for copying your .WAD files of Doom 1 and Doom 2, everything Mr. Icarus said here is essential for playing Doom mods. ZDL helps SO MUCH with handling complicated mod load orders, especially with mods that have weird loading priority.

 
 

Hayase Nagatoro is quite cute. When she's not bullying or relentlessly teasing Senpai of the manga that's named after her.


 
 

I definitely prefer the clean/radio edit version of the song. It really does improve the flow better to use "ruin" instead of "fuck up".

 
 

Hmm, not sure how I feel about cloning wildlife/livestock. I do get the concerns about the health of the members of a species in a certain area, especially with the problems that cloning bananas have.

 
 

Apparently, the soreness from the J&J COVID-19 vaccine is intermittent, but ibuprofen definitely helps. It seems like the side effects from any of 3 vaccines that got emergency use authorizations in the USA appear in around 8-14 hours or earlier.

 
 

Last week, The Slormancer was released onto Steam Early Access and GOG In-Dev. It's kinda barebones, but pretty decent so far, and the dev team has released a few hotfixes since launch. Getting a Slorm Reaper to Level 100 is gonna take some time...

 
 

At this point, I think the USA government should either nationalize all the medical facilities or require that all medical facilities be nonprofits and strictly regulate and inspect them. They definitely need more oversight.

 
 

Today after waking up, I noticed I was sore in both arms and I have the chills. These are the side effects I have noticed so far from the J&J COVID-19 vaccine. The side effects are definitely stronger than from other vaccines I've gotten.

 
 

Got my COVID-19 vaccine today. It was the Johnson & Johnson shot. The local health department converted an old retail store into a clinic. Got the shot pretty quickly and then had to wait to see if any side effects developed.

 
 

My fluffy cat Scully has started shedding her winter coat. I guess spring is here. There goes the extra softness her winter coat provided. Oh well.

 
 

There are GOG discount codes for A Plague Tale: Innocence being sent out to people. The discount is apparently 75% and you can find a bunch of the codes on r/GOG subreddit.

 
 

Lumi has some seriously fluffy twintails now. Soji Mitsuka approves.

 
 

This month's Humble Choice is very disappointing. The games it has I either have no interest in or I've never even heard of. The quality of these game bundles is always all over the place.

 
 

Hell yeah, more flying mech combat. I hope the campaign will be longer this time.

 
 

At the local Meijer, there were about 3 flavors of Home Run Inn pizza stocked. I'm guessing it's not very popular here, since Meijer's frozen pizza section is pretty big and arguably better than Walmart's.

 
 
 

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?
