Playing Warhammer 40K Mechanicus. Videx: Ignore the Necrons' writing. Me: Steal that metal engraved slab, guys! Game: enjoy the CP(pretty much action points) and a first turn advantage. Sometimes Videx is just an ignorant annoyance.

 
 

While I am excited that Steam is getting Daemon X Machina and other mech games this year, I am going to wait until after release to get it. I have been burned on too many pre-orders before.

 
 

I don't like programming in C, especially all the conversion specifiers. Those things annoy me so much.

 
 

Started on the last season of Legend of Korra. Seeing an Avatar with PTSD is kinda retreading the past. Toph hasn't changed much, I seriously wonder how bandits got a biplane, and what is up with the crappy Earth Kingdom rulers?

 
 

I started watching Legend of Korra. I can see what the complaints are about. The members of Team Avatar had to struggle to learn about bending, from just the basics to entirely new forms. Korra started out very gifted at a very young age.

 
 

Stuff that annoy me about Azur Lane: memes, meme ships, people using the Oath and ship name change systems to spread memes, and certain ships taking forever to appear. That said, I still like it more than Fate: GO or Fire Emblem Heroes.

 
 

So, the artist had one of their comics roasted by PewDiePie, so they drew him as a smug anime girl.


 
 

Started watching Monster Musume. While it's pretty good, the occasional racism between the monster girls is a bummer. Also, I finished the anime DanMachi, and it was pretty good, though it could have used more Marshmallow Hell.

 
 

Got my vaccinations and feel sore in both arms. Ibuprofen helps, but this should fade away soon. Also, a big ice storm is coming soon. I got a lot of warnings from TV on that.

 
 

Sometimes I find a good new gender bender manga that quickly gets my attention, other times I find one that is made of pure wrong and WTF. Today, the latter happened.

 
 

Maybe it's just the various media I enjoy, but it always seems like the most feminine girl in the group of main characters is the one most likely to be a healer/doctor. Yesterday, I finally got the rest of my DVD's. I'm gonna watch Monster Musume next.

 
 

Well, Iran retaliated by attacking USA bases in Iraq, the cut on my finger can't be stitched, and the activist part of a certain company just shut down today. 2020 continues to be fucking great.

 
 

The first 2 episodes of Book 3 of Avatar the Last Airbender are kinda weird compared to the opening episodes of the previous seasons. Zuko is such a conflicted idiot and Katara is definitely a tsundere.

 
 

Well, playing the Colourfull Hell Doom mod with a slaughtermap was a bad idea, even though I also loaded Russian Overkill as well. The Bolognese gore mod works just fine, though.

 
 

If there's anything that Doom and other fast-paced FPS's prove, it's that hitscan enemies are total bullshit without a regenerating health system like Halo has.

 
 

Both Jim Sterling and Yahtzee named Bloodstained Ritual of the Night as one of the best games of the year, and I completely agree with them. It's the best Castlevania game since Order of Ecclesia.

 
 

Has anyone here used Parmesan or some other hard cheese when making quesadillas before?

 
 

The best part about Project Warlock's Egypt levels is that all or most of the enemies in it are wonderfully flammable. MWAHAHAHAHAAAhAAHAHAA!!!!

 
 

In my experience with Doom mods, it's often a good idea to keep old versions of a mod around, in case something in a later version breaks or the mod author does something that annoys you with a later version.

 
 

Happy Birthday to Soulbow and Happy New Year. I hope this year and decade will be better than the last.

 
 

Having just watched The Great Divide episode of Avatar The Last Airbender, I can safely say that it IS filler in the sense that: it doesn't further plot or character development, Aang kinda acts out of character, and the episode could be skipped easily.

 
 

Steam's Holiday Quests are nothing more than Valve's excuse to show off what new features Steam has. Getting that invite friend to a lobby task was more of a pain in the ass than it should have been.

 
 

Now, this gun has the right angle. Screenshot from Mothergunship.


 
 

Huh, I forgot that Katara accuses her brother Sokka of being sexist in the first episode of Avatar the Last Airbender (the original series). I miss the Nickelodeon of the early 00's.

 
 

Steam, why do you tease me with a fun-looking sci-fi tank game only for it to be a MMO? Q%20

 
 

So, Walmart will put reduced price stickers on their organic produce. Twice in a row now, the drinking water dispenser at the local Walmart wasn't working. They need to schedule more regular maintenance on that machine.

 
 

Merry Christmas, Destructoid! I hope all of you had a great holiday. I got some anime, both of Nickelodeon's Avatar series, a Steam card, and a Redragon keyboard. Said keyboard is kinda clacky, but I will hopefully get used to it.


 
 

I have a Steam coupon for 10% off Cthulhu Saves Christmas. If anyone wants it, just respond to this post. It's more reliable than the private message system.

 
 

Final Doomer (a mod for classic Doom) received an update in the form of new classes and new weapons. I wonder which 32 map wads they will make a class for next.

 
 

This is really cool, and there's plenty more Tesla coil music, including a cover of The Imperial March.

 
 

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?
