    Zero Punctuation: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Mordoooooor

    I agree with everything in the video completely. As someone who is pretty knowledgeable about the lore (i.e. beyond just the trilogy), I was kind of turned off until I actually played it, since the premise seemed kind of stupid and very non-canon. But ultimately, it's just too much fun to pass...

    Games that penalize you for playing a certain way

    Metal Gear Solid 3 could be kinda said to penalize you for playing a certain way, since in the the Sorrow boss fight you have to deal with the ghosts of all the people you've killed. If you don't kill anyone then you only have to "fight" the four other Cobra unit members and it's much shorter...

    Biggest video game regret

    Easy. Getting invested in Dota 2 hats to the point that now I just buy all of them on principle even though I barely play anymore.

    Games that penalize you for playing a certain way

    I don't know how I forgot about the whole fucking Payday 2 Deathwish update debacle. They completely ruined the stealth gameplay with all the changes they made to most of the levels that were actually fun and satisfying to do stealithy. Like day 3 of Framing Frame, when you first start doing it...

    Warhammer 40k: Where did the beastmen go?

    That's basically exactly why I was asking. I didn't get why Ogryns, Ratlings, even fucking Scalies were apparently a pretty big thing, yet there were no Chaos beastmen anymore, like Bestigors or Doombulls.

    Warhammer 40k: Where did the beastmen go?

    This is a good post, that explains a lot. I actually completely forgot about the Squats existing. And I always thought the Demiurg were considered Tau, so I never really looked into them that much, not being that interested in Tau lore. And for some reason I was thinking most Orks were...

    Warhammer 40k: Where did the beastmen go?

    lol, I'm not "arguing" about anything, just asking a question. And I know it's not "Chaos Eldar", that was a brain fart on my part when I was typing it. Dark Eldar actually go to great lengths of cruelty and evil to NOT become corrupted by Slaanesh, so yeah.

    Games you're excited to play

    The Witcher 3, Evolve, Ryse on PC. This is a bit of a dry-spell, tbh.

    Worst customer service you've ever had (rant happy)

    I forgot to mention how god-awful, pants-on-head retarded EA Origin customer service is. If you've ever dealt with them, you know what I'm talking about. Serious outsourcing going on there. I don't think they realize that "copy and paste pre-written phrases" doesn't qualify as customer support...

    Warhammer 40k: Where did the beastmen go?

    This is something I've never really thought about or looked into, so I figured I'd try to start a discussion about it. In Warhammer fantasy there are dwarves and beastmen, which aren't present in Warhammer 40k's universe. The explanation for dwarves not appearing in WH40k are that the...

    The most irredeemably evil bastard in any videogame

    That's still the "current fluff" of it. Slaanesh is the god of many things, chiefly among them excess, perfectionism, and hedonism. Basically, anything that you feel good doing, you do until it kills you. That's the whole basis of Slaanesh's palace in the Warp as well. People get trapped in one...

    Worst customer service you've ever had (rant happy)

    I tend to try to avoid "customer service" as much as I possibly can, so I don't have many experiences with it, good or bad. But, there was the whole thing Paypal freezing people's accounts until they sent in a bunch of ridiculous information, like proof of address, proof of residence, social...

    "That guy" in online games

    I see people "selling" EX Primal runs and Binding Coil on my server quite a bit too. FFXIV does have a bit of a problem with elitism, especially when it comes to lower-tiered dungeons and even sub-level 50 runs. Which is hilarious, because it's the easiest content. And, I don't know if it's...

    Star citizen First true next gen game?

    To all the people mentioning, "I won't believe it until I see it/play it", you can play their proof-of-concept version of the game right now if you make a pledge. They just released a racing mode as well, with some new ships in the pledge store, as well as the multiple Arena Commander modes you...
