    What's the most boring game you've aver played?

    For me, its Darksiders. It was described to me as Zelda with God of War combat, but somehow they managed to suck all the fun out of both elements. Combat was incredibly repetitive, puzzles were uninspired, and there was no compelling plot or story. And yet it also felt very short; I was pushing...

    Uncharted 4 May Not Run at 60 FPS Because "It's Really F---ing Hard"

    I appreciate the devs just being honest about this. No "cinematic" line or anything else like that. They've just said, "Look, we want to do this with the graphics, so we can't hit this framerate." Everyone knows what they're getting, and you can choose to play it or not as a result. And I, for...

    In The Last of Us, Joel Had It Right

    Very good read, very well reasoned. Still, I can't help but feel like the climax doesn't really make sense. Like, regardless of the stressful post-apocalyptic situation, I don't think humans would react that irrationally. There seems to be no reason Marlene wouldn't sit down with Joel and Ellie...

    Gay Relationships

    I think Arj Barker said it best: (if you don't get it, the bit at the end is sarcasm) But yeah, gay people, straight people, bi people, trans people, polyamorous people, people with fetishes, people without fetishes, sexually active people, asexual people, whatever. It's all great and...

    Assassin's Creed: Victory Leaked, Releasing Fall 2015

    So AC: Unity is the first Assassin's Creed game I haven't played--Ubisoft, you finally managed to kill of the last of my love for the series. But I like London. So maybe you can make this one good? I can be brought back...but only if you make a good game.

    Your Recent Gaming Achievements

    I beat LIMBO in 5 deaths recently. Got to the final hazard with four deaths, failed once, and then just scraped by to get the achievement. Most stressful run of a game ever. It actually wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be (probably took about 5-6 tries total), but it was a good challenge and...

    "Smart" movies you think are dumb

    I saw Birdman and was absolutely ready to love it. I thought it was pretty much a piece of shit. I ended up writing a review of it for my university's film review site: The TL;DR is that the movie thinks its really smart but makes no actual interesting or unique argument. It presents...

    Games You Enjoy But Are Bad At

    Dark Souls and FTL are the two games I've put a fair amount of time into that I still totally blow at. I'd like to be able to play fighting and strategy games, but I've never really figured those out. And I'm decent at shooters, but I'd like to be better I guess. I mostly play single...

    Terrible movies that you like

    I've always really liked Wanted. Whenever I flip channels or something and see it on, I'm like, "Am I in the mood to watch James McAvoy curve bullets? Why yes, I do believe I am." And things are good.

    Am I the only one who is tired of dark fantasy...?

    I've gone back to reading Terry Brooks's Shannara series (after the announcement of the TV show). People have mixed feelings about them, but to me they're very enjoyable books set in a fantasy world; not too dark or too full of themselves, just stories. The first book is basically just Lord of...

    How do you like your eggs?

    Scrambled, generally. Omelettes are my favorite, but that's more of a separate dish than "a way of preparing eggs," I guess, cause of all the extra ingredients.

    Report: Microsoft Skipped Windows 9 Due to Legacy Programming Conflicts

    If this is really the worry, why not just give the OS a name a la XP or Vista? Seems like it would be a much more sensible solution to the potential problem.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Review - The Ring of Truth

    Well that is surprising. Thought the game looked pretty generic from the first gameplay demo and never followed up on it. But now...I might just have to check this out.

    Metal Gear Collection 2014 Teased by Hideo Kojima

    If this is reasonably priced, I might actually get this. Having never played any MGS games, I'd be interested in giving 1-3 a spin. I know the story's supposed to be, um, peculiar, but I'm interested in that stealth-action gameplay.

    Parks and Rec's "Cones of Dunshire" Game Going Retail

    DIBS ON LEDGERMAN! OT, I probably wouldn't actually play this, despite being a both a board game and a Parks and Rec fan. But its funny that they're making it, so I'll give them a thumbs up and hope people enjoy it.
