The worse parts of Transformers Armada are the parts with the kids that hang out with the Autobots. They all a bunch of idiots who have no business in an interstellar war. Human characters always seem to be stupid and annoying in any Transformers show.

 
 

On the news, I've been seeing videos of Texas covered in lots of snow. That is quite bizarre. Stay safe, and stay warm, folks. Subzero temperatures can be quite harsh.

 
 

Cool! The newest version of the mod is finally released, and it looks pretty good, though the installation instructions are a bit weird.

 
 

Only $32B-$64 billion per year for preventing the next pandemic? Why, that is a bargain compared to what the USA ALONE wastes on pointless military spending.

 
 

While I was playing Ziggurat 2 (an Early Access game), it crashed. Less than an hour after submitting a crash report, the dev contacted me, asking for the log files. Several hours later, the dev told me the crash was called by a rare divide by zero error.

 
 

Well, this is the most disturbing version of the drunken sailor sea shanty, and the Bernie Sanders one is the most wholesome.

 
 

Saw Borderlands 3 Ultimate on Humble for less than 20 bucks, and just before I was about to buy it, the price went back to normal. The current sale price is still too high. Pulling this crap is annoying, though not as bad as BANNING PEOPLE ARBITARILY.

 
 

I see that Google is still run by fucking morons and useless AI. Screwing over an active customer is really shitty. Abandoning a business partner that makes a game Google needs to slow Stadia's death is irredeemably stupid.

 
 

As far as selection and quantity of ready to eat sandwiches go, Walmart > Meijer > Kroger. Though to be fair, I only visited a Kroger once, but they put American cheese in a ham sandwich, rather than Swiss. WHY?!?!?

 
 

Memory Lost kinda plays like Ruiner, but with the ability to steal the bodies of your enemies. The game currently has a Steam demo. I tried it, and it's not my kind of twinstick game.

 
 

One of Cthulhu's cousins just wants to say "hi", so I don't know why she's freaking out.

 
 

I'll definitely take a year of weirdness, sea shanties, and Wall Street losing their shit over the year of hell that was 2020.

 
 

Here's a GOG discount code for Kingdom Come: Deliverance Royal Edition ( and all the DLC): HH9X30B0331546D568 The discount percentage is unknown.

 
 

Lindsey Graham:"We'll want the FBI to come in and tell us about how people actually pre-planned these attacks and what happened with the security footprint at the Capitol." Me: Please proceed, then!

 
 

Green Man Gaming has a 22% off voucher code for Nioh 2: FEB22

 
 

Stephen, I wouldn't call what r/WallStreetBets is doing market manipulation, though I would call it long overdue justified revenge. Also, fuck Marjorie Taylor Greene. She is a clear and present danger and should be expelled from Congress.

 
 

Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator is free on Steam until February 1.

 
 

Well, it bites that we probably won't see sedition charges for dirtbags like Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, however, there could be sedition charges for the terrorists who attacked DC.

 
 

Oh, this is some delicious schadenfreude. Wallstreet is losing their fucking minds, brokerage firms are preventing the buying and selling of certain stocks (cause they have to cheat now), a hedge fund lost LOTS of money, and reddit is loving this.

 
 

Here is a GOG discount code for Slay the Spire: 9PRQ7BB6CC3CE5AF66 The discount percentage is unknown.

 
 

Metal Unit has exited Steam Early Access today. It's kinda like an Edge of Tomorrow game with more waifus.

 
 
 

Ah, I love the wackiness of the Earth Defense Force series. Playing as a "civilian" Air Raider early in EDF 5 can lead to artillery and air strike crews confused about how you got the codes one second, and then asking for more strike coordinates the next.

 
 

Things that are worse about Earth Defense 5 when compared against EDF 4.1: the song lyrics, the addition of the air resistance mechanic for certain guns, and the significant changes/nerfs to various Wind Diver weapons.

 
 

I prefer the more dramatic/serious Power Rangers seasons (like Lightspeed Rescue, SPD, and Time Force) over the more comedic/wacky seasons (like Turbo and Lost Galaxy).

 
 

The following is a GOG discount code for a bundle that contains Myst Masterpiece Edition, Riven the Sequel to Myst, Myst 3 Exile, Myst 4 Revelation, Myst 5 End of Ages, Uru Complete Chronicles, and realMyst Masterpiece Edition: RFCQ69055FD0AB664A

 
 

To all Steam users: make sure to check your Steam inventory and badges every now and again. Old games can get cards added to them long after you bought the game and selling these cards can help pay the sales tax or even buy games outright on the store.

 
 

I only started watching the last 30 minutes of it, but it looks like President Joe Biden's inauguration was about as boring as it should have been. Looks like he's off to a good start.

 
 

I've seen a lot of weird stuff in Earth Defense Force 4.1 and 5, but alien frog dragons just takes the cake. Did the devs of EDF 5 find the Power Rangers Lost Galaxy writers' secret LSD stash or something?

 
 

All things considered, the Earth Defense Force games are just Power Rangers games in a different genre intended for a somewhat older audience.

 
 

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?
