Honestly, I often find myself preferring the first part of a series as opposed to its sequels, even when, in most respects, a sequel is very clearly an improvement over the original. There’s a freshness with ‘part ones’ that in so many cases never diminishes. Read more

Well, a second credible rumor has cropped up regarding either a remaster or remake of Red Dead Redemption. Hopefully, unlike those of several years ago, this one turns out to be true. Read more

I found the gathering in both Horizon: Zero Dawn and Red Dead Redemption to be almost meditative. I can see why it wouldn’t be that way for everyone, though. (The gathering and crafting in The Last of Us felt like it took things a step further, offering a very satisfying, almost 8-bit like quality to how all the Read more

It’s been a while since I’ve actually played the game owing to Rockstar’s bizarre refusal to port and/or remaster one of their most successful titles, so my good memories may have simply glossed over the more annoying bits. Read more

Despite how “dead” Red Dead Redemption’s open world is from an interactivity perspective, it never felt like a knock against it. In large part because of the fact that the frontier it was recreating is and was mostly empty and inhospitable. You’d see tumbleweeds roll along the ground. You’d see grass or trees sway in Read more

So as someone who is going to be in the market for a new Mac in the near-ish future, but only vaguely recalls the transition to Intel-based processors, approximately how fucked am I by investing in one of the 1.0 models? Full disclosure: I’m far from a power user. Read more

Speaking as someone who worked, albeit briefly, on the outskirts of the porn industry, always be suspicious of the people who get into the business specifically to produce, specifically to direct, specifically as an executive...pretty much anybody who - from the word go - was calling the shots but never once performed.

Dude’s got a throbbing hard on for Nintendo these days, but its ultimately up to the publishers. Marvelous usually winds up porting their exclusives elsewhere sooner or later, but emphasis can frequently be on the “later”. Read more

I rather enjoy the look of Ritual of the Night, but feel a CRT filter would still do wonders for it. Ditto Streets of Rage 4. (Which actually has one, but it’s joined at the hip to a ‘retro’ filter with no way to currently separate the two. Read more

That so much of Hollywood’s best output during the eighties should be of the summer blockbuster variety is in itself so very eighties. Subtlety was never that decade’s strong suit. Read more

I still haven’t gotten around to Detroit yet (I haven’t actually tried any of the games on this list), but am determined to play it eventually almost entirely for Clancy Brown. Read more

Protip: Alt-righters are gonna call you a SJW cuck for playing it, and the more performative leftists are gonna call you an amoral shitbag for enjoying it. Read more

Pfft...good luck with that one. EA it seems can barely be assed to give one whole shit about Madden and FIFA. And those are the cash cows. Granted, the only sports games I care about tend to have Mario somewhere in the title, but I can sympathize with your plight re EA’s boundless indifference.

A bare bones remaster of Black is literally the only thing I care about from EA and they’ve been consistently disappointing me for the better part of a decade now. Read more
