I have never played a Wolfestein game, but maybe I should. Grace Walker was amazing in those cut scenes, and if other characters are even half as well written, the games must be brilliant. I also recognized her voice instantly, can we get Deborah Wilson to be in every game? And fwiw, this game did a much better job of Read more

I have occasionally played games on harder difficulties and even felt a sense of accomplishment from it. But I am also an adult with limited game time, and hours in a cycle of trying to beat a boss and failing is nothing but frustrating. I’ll just find another game to play. Difficulty settings make me very much more Read more

The thing that’s bugging me on the Halo box is how close the white box on the left is to the logo. It looks unbalanced, like they need the white to be just a bit slimmer or the logo brought down just a bit. I feel like the space between the logo and the white box should be about the same as the distance between the Read more

At first I thought this was maybe Scandroid, and then maybe Gunship, but no. Gunship hasn’t even put anything new out since 2018. Nice find though, this is a pretty great song! Read more

WTF is going on with Batman’s anatomy? Does he have twelve pack abs or something? Did they bring Liefeld back to draw this?

I loved it, it’s very on brand and yet still the best teaser trailer I’ve seen in... Maybe forever. The wah sound and lens flares really got me, not gonna lie.

The Outer Worlds was only released in Oct 2019, which is less than two years but feels like eons ago. It seems like it was a little bit of a sleeper, so it was fairly easy to miss out on the hype if you weren’t looking for it. I figure if they’re teasing it now with no footage to show, that means it at least a two or Read more

I may be in the minority, but whenever I see a really cool looking game is co-op only, I get really disappointed. I like single player games, or at least games that give you the option to play solo in some capacity. Maybe it’s because I don’t have gamer friends to play with, I dunno. Read more

So Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have pretty much given up on Deus Ex entirely and are focusing on more lackluster Marvel games? Cool, cool, cool. Not disappointing at all.

I’ve felt that way pretty much since the beginning. Yes, it was visually very pretty, but it always felt sort of hollow to me. The best part of the movie was watching Stephen Lang chew the scenery, which is kind of his thing. It was this huge blockbuster, I remember people online claiming that they were spiritually Read more

Right, but the choice between buying physical or digital is part of the appeal of the Switch, at least for me. If I want to own a physical copy, I can pick it up at Target or wherever when I’m shopping and it’s done. If I just want to play it right now, or I don’t want to have to deal with a physical cartridge, I can Read more

There are a lot of console games that I’ve been wanting to play on PC for a long time too, and it sucks. It seems like its time to retire the whole exclusivity thing, or at least as much as possible. However, I wonder if the reason PS and Xbox don’t pick up these indie games is because in general, they don’t sell for Read more

Right now, you're better off buying pre-built. The cost of the components is too damn high.

Other than the views of Mt. Shasta, weed has nothing going for it. Maybe Lenny Werewolf did George a favor.

No one ever talks about it, but Vampyr is a game that exists, and it’s pretty good! The morality system there is not perfect, but what you do to the people around you matters. If you choose to eat a person, they’re gone, along with any side quests, hints, or impacts on other events they may have had. If you piss Read more

I hear you on the simulation sickness issue. For me, part of the issue is FOV, but also stuff like head bob, weapon bob, sometimes even bloom. I don’t know why some games make me sick but it seems like a crapshoot. I haven’t played RE:8 yet, so I can’t say how I’ll react, but its usually older titles that get me. I Read more

No, you’re not being picky and no, most anime is not like this. English voice actors watch the movement of the characters’ mouths, each movement known as a “lip flap,” and try to match the words to the mouth as closely as possible. Writers/translators also help, they have to have a correct translation that also fits Read more

Backlogs can be intimidating. There are so many games, and even the most dedicated gamer can't get to them all right at release. I think it might help that anxiety if you give yourself permission to dabble. You don't have to pick a game and immediately play it through in its entirety, just pick something that sounds Read more

Looks like the base copy of LA Noire now contains all DLC, but I already had all DLC anyway so I suppose that’s moot. The store page for Max Payne 3 doesn’t specifically mention that DLC are included, but the box with the DLC options is now gone. Also, there is not a separate page for either for a new edition, so it Read more
