    Zero Punctuation: Unavowed

    Had a delightful laugh at the "It was made for me" joke with the dog. If you haven't read "The Enigma of Aragami Fault", it's over here []. Your mileage may vary, but I found it to be by far the creepiest thing I've read in a while, so steer clear if you have...

    Zero Punctuation: We Happy Few

    Reckon he was referring to the historical Boudica [] rather than anything going on on the forums. There were a couple of times I stopped the video to look things up. I'd quite forgotten about the tungsten carbide drills...

    Zero Punctuation: Totally Accurate Battlegrounds and Moonlighter

    Utterly glorious, that playthrough. Recommendation seconded. The brief appearance of the partially-implemented third-person mode is notable. (Image from .)

    Zero Punctuation: Hunt Down the Freeman

    The Steam Controller, SteamOS, and Steam Machines had a lot of promise, once. But considering that those were far from successful, you might expect them to be a little hesitant about launching another similar venture. Nintendo had the nerve to allow stuff like Meme Run and The Letter on the Wii...

    Zero Punctuation: Okami HD

    Gee, I remember many of the reviews bitterly complaining that the Wiimote was too jumpy and imprecise.

    Zero Punctuation: Okami HD

    Anyone remember "I'm O.K.", the great Derek Yu's response to Jack Thompson's ramblings? Never got around to playing that. Those were simpler times.

    In brief defence of Final Fantasy 8

    It is a bit silly that rules are lost or gained randomly when you entered a new area.. Pretty much your only option is to keep resetting until the rules sway the way you need them to ? because several of the rules are just completely misery-inducing. Of course, collecting all the cards...

    In brief defence of Final Fantasy 8

    One of my biggest problems with the battle system is that you wind up with a rather ridiculous number of different inventory items that pile up to the point that it becomes difficult to navigate and sort it all. It seemed to me more like there were just giant gaps in the story that they meant to...

    Zero Punctuation: Sonic Forces

    I was not aware that Lost World 3DS is regarded fondly. I wanted to come here to say that it seems redundant to try focusing on Sonic since that was pretty much what they did with Sonic Colors and Sonic Lost World, isn't it?

    Zero Punctuation: Remastered Editions

    Could the problems in Parappa be due to input lag, i.e. because one is using a television that does some kind of "motion interpolation" and thus displays frames slightly after the console expects them to be displayed? I was trying Rhythm Heaven Fever (Wii) for the first time in a while the...

    Would a proper 7 season run of Enterprise have saved it?

    No one seems to have remarked on Enterprise's completely brazen recycling of scripts from DS9 and Voyager. Downright lazy, it was. Who can say what might have happened? That last season held some promise, but not that much promise.

    Zero Punctuation: Horizon Zero Dawn

    Oh, I also noticed that just now. I was wondering if it was something I did. Guess not.

    E3 2017 Will Open its Doors to the Public

    Remember that year they were saying it was going to be the Last E3 Ever? (And was it E3 that said they were getting rid of "booth babes"? How did that pan out?) It was my understanding that while it was only open to the media, they had a fairly expansive definition of the term "media".

    Half-Life 3 Will Probably Never Happen, Says Valve Insider

    Oh really now; they've barely released anything original in recent years. That is a poor metric for greatness.

    Rogue One Will Never Get a Sequel

    "Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel" is already a thing. Technically not a "sequel", but I'm sure they could turn it into a movie one way or another if they decided there was money to be made.
