    Escapist Podcast: 094: Double Fine Kickstarter & E3 Judge's Week

    You guys are insane, pistachio ice cream is AWESOME! If a pistachio-only ice cream place existed, I wouldn't even need to go anywhere else! Really sad to see Susan go though, the podcat just won't be the same without her energetic personality and rather amusing rants. Whatever lies in store...

    If you could make ONE change to a game, what would it be?

    Mass Effect 3: Remove forced Origin requirement. Yeah, I know the ending is supposedly awful, but I'd be willing to put up with it. At least I'd get to actually play the game in the first place! In the same way I'm not willing to inject a syringe filled with raw sewage into my body, I'm not...

    Escapist Podcast: 089: Religion in BioShock, David Jaffe and Playing Nice

    Absolutely. I feel like this isn't addressed enough. Over the last couple months I've been seeing an increasing amount of website representatives and content creators making appeals to their userbase about adblock. I honestly think angle gets WAY too much focus, and that the wrong people are...

    Poll: Will you drop the difficulty if you're having trouble?

    I do pretty much always play for the sake of the experience and not the challenge alone, so for most games I tend to go with normal difficulty, and will only crank it up to hard if it's a notoriously easy game or if it's a game I've played before. I'll absolutely refuse to turn down the...

    Poll: Men only subject - do you shave?

    I shave once a week, really can't be bothered to do it more frequently. Not the entire face though, currently sporting a big goatee and sideburns.

    Escapist Podcast: 081: PlayStation 4

    Heh, you should get Mike a real microphone, toasters aren't really supposed to be used for voice recording...

    Anyone else getting tired of super hero movies?

    Not really tired of it... Never had any interest in superheroes, nor have I ever been much into comic books and stuff. Perhaps that's why Dark Knight was kinda "meh" for me. Don't get me wrong, it was a competently made quality film, but a lack of personal investment towards the characters and...

    Movie Defense Force: Alien 3

    Thank Jim for more Jim! While it's not my personal favorite of the series, I've never been one to bash Alien 3, and quite frankly never got why so many seemed to hate it. You presented some solid arguments, and this series is looking quite promising. Looking forward to the next episode...

    First games that come to mind

    1. Painkiller 2. Serious Sam 3. F.E.A.R. All solid FPS experiences with fantastic fun and challenging gameplay, meaty and satisfying guns with powerful sound FX, and most importantly, solid single player focused campaigns. Everything CoD isn't. If none of those would get this hypothetical...

    Zero Punctuation: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

    Aah that was beautiful, just... beautiful. I get the feeling Yahtzee is starting to get tired of these yearly copy-pastes by now, and the people who keep buying them, causing the industry to release another one next year. "Why all the hate on CoD? It's a decent game, and the multiplayer is...

    I've tried listening to it, tried hard. Even checked out a couple of the recommendations in this thread. The problem remains the same as it always has, it does nothing for me. I get nothing out of it, no enjoyment or feelings. Not saying it's the genres fault, it's a preference thing.

    Zero Punctuation: Medal of Honor Warfighter & Doom 3 BFG Edition

    I applauded my computer screen with a ridiculous grin on my face after the rant about modern shooters. I don't care how stupid I looked, it needed to be done. This man knows GOOD shooters. Speaking of which, it's been almost a year since my last Painkiller run, and that's too long. Thanks for...

    Enemies That Make You Go "Oh Fuck This"

    Ghouls aka BDSM Gollums from Dark Messiah of Might & Magic. The little fuckers are fast as lightning, take about a millisecond to stop running and start clawing at you, rarely stagger, kill you in about 2 hits AND take way too many hits before they snuff it. I really don't care if it's cheap...

    Jimquisition: Think of the Children!

    You're sounding like a complete sociopath. Either that, or a 12 year old trying to be cool and edgy. If you honestly believe the Little Lamplight kids deserve to be brutally murdered for throwing a couple childish insults at you, you've got issues. No, you are not entitled to shoot them, and...
