A tornado touched down in my County today, hitting houses and power lines. I don't live in the town where it appeared, but it's still surprising to me. Tornadoes are rare in Michigan. Stay safe folks. Having a reliable generator can be useful.

 
 

I think the best looking Nerf shotgun is the Saturn XX-1000. The Takedown XX-800 looks kinda weird to me.


 
 

After completing the Steam Forge Your Fate series, I got the Gorilla Scientist avatar frame. What frames did you get, Dtoiders?

 
 

I had a Home Run Inn pizza. It was pretty decent, and I am glad they used bacon instead of hamburger. It would have been nice if the crust was taller and fluffier, though. :/


 
 

Dread Templar looks pretty cool, and the inclusion of bullet time is an interesting design choice. I'm definitely liking this revival of fast paced FPS's, though I prefer a save at any time save system.

 
 

In the comments below, I'm going to talk about various demos I played through Steam Next Fest.

 
 

I got a pizza from Newman's Own. It was a thin crust pizza, and while the flavor and amount of pepperoni were okay, it was extremely lacking in cheese. It was disappointing.


 
 

I wish game devs would talk more about hilarious glitches that never made it to the public build.

 
 

A couple of standout demos from Steam Next Fest: Kingdom Gun is kinda like a combination of Risk of Rain 1 and Enter the Gungeon with 3 player characers, including a zombie princess. They Always Run is a platformer about a three armed bounty hunter.

 
 

Here's a GOG discount code for Into the Breach: NMGN487454BD30ACA1 Not sure what the percentage is.

 
 

As much as I like my Craftsman dual line trimmer, it eats through cutting line like Kirby eats through a large feast. Does anyone here prefer eating watermelon sections taken from the ends, rather than the middle of the fruit?

 
 

Why are there so few video games with Nazis as the bad guys? They could be a lot more fun to fight and kill in massive numbers than some gen brand outlaw, bandit, or psycho mook gang. I don't care if space/cyber/fantasy Nazis is a silly idea.

 
 

LOADS of new demos available through Steam Next Fest, along with some returning demos. Might need to clear some space off of the storage drive.

 
 

To anyone who has played the BloodRayne games, what are your thoughts on them and are they worth playing to completion?

 
 
 

Yocci meowing and purring like a cat is just too cute and wholesome!

 
 

For-profit prisons need to be made illegal and shutdown immediately and forever. If governments can waste money on stupid shit like endless wars, tax cuts for the rich, subsidies for the fossil fuel industry, they can afford installing air conditioning.

 
 

If these batteries become practical on a large scale, that could be rather useful. As good as lithium ion batteries are, they do have multiple drawbacks. We REALLY need better battery tech.

 
 

Yikes. A megadrought in the western USA combined with low water reservoir levels is scary. Dry years suck so much.

 
 

According to BscScan, HitlerCoin might? exist in some sort of way. WTF. How the hell is cryptocurrency not a giant form of financial fraud with all the volatility of a mad arsonist inside a fireworks storage warehouse?

 
 

Joe Manchin is an annoying obstacle and dead weight with how he can prevent good legislation from getting enough votes to pass. I hope the idiot loses his next election, primary or general. We got too much of this bullshit from Mitch McConnell.


 
 
 

I beat all of the games in the Master Chief Collection. While they were fun and the weapons mostly looked great, having to constantly change weapons cause ammo can be so scarce is annoying.

 
 

That Sharks! display should remain viewable to the public, as it is a pretty interesting work of art and the rulemakers are being jerks.

 
 

Well, Battlemode of Doom Eternal sucks. I don't get why id thought that an asymmetrical multiplayer mode would be worth implementing rather than full mod support. They should have learned their lesson from Turtle Rock Studio's Evolve.

 
 

Doom 2 > Doom 1 > Doom 4 > Doom 3 > Doom Eternal > Final Doom > Master Levels. I haven't played Doom 64 yet.

 
 

Beat Doom Eternal. The level of Urdak really needs improvement. The platforming is outright excessive, the boss fight is kinda too long, and the level goes too long without providing any demons to purge. The final boss fight was much too long.

 
 

With all technical issues the game has and its Mixed rating on Steam, I agree with ACG saying that the game is a wait for sale. Still, it does look like Streum On Studio have improved since Space Hulk Deathwing.

 
 

My thoughts on Doom Eternal so far: there's way too much platforming, I miss my hitscan weapons, Cacos get much too close now, I'm glad the Doom Slayer treats the weapon drones better, VEGA > Cortana, and I'd rather use classic Doom's save system.

 
 

Got a used Z-turn mower today. Getting used to it could be a challenge.

 
 

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?
