    The New Shiny Escapist

    It took me a while to find a different news site and changed my home page. I'll be checking back periodically for about a week or so in case this amateur design is either shot down or there is a function to allow users to revert back to the older format. I've expressed my opinion on the new...

    The New Shiny Escapist

    Apparently it ate my comment from much earlier today. The layout is an absolute cluster fuck, the white is eye melting and reminds me of the horrible gawker redesign. Also the loading times are absolutely abysmal, though they have gotten better from earlier. Looks like its time to find...

    Now David Jaffe is Talking About Skyrim's Lag

    I always find it refreshing when a developer speaks his mind and treats another developer with respect. It's a nice vacation away from all the shit flinging most of these idiots do now. Skyrim sure is buggy but it is also absolutely amazing. I'm playing on PC and have ran into the...

    No Right Answer: Best Anime Series Ever

    I would have to say the best anime series I've run across are a very close tie between Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Baccano! Baccano probably being one of my favorites of all time since I have seen it. It's hard to pick between just Pokemon...

    Ubisoft Kills Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on PC

    Yup I'm primarily a PC gamer and how did Ubisoft guess that I'm such a scoundrel pirate. They must have snooped in my steam account and saw my roughly 200 purchased games and started screeching at me. Kind of sorry that I gave these ass clowns money for their games even when they were on...

    Epic: DLC Needed to Fight "Used Game Culture"

    I believe used sales of a lawful product are a right under the first sale doctrine. Sorry Mr. Fergusson and every other money grubbing developer against used sales but your eventually going to have to come down off your cross, use the wood to build a bridge and get the fuck over it. From...

    Poll: Which did you prefer, Wind Waker or Twilight Princess

    I never finished Twilight Princess because I couldn't stand playing it on the Wiimote. I could have picked it up for gamecube but didn't really bother at all. From what little I played I just wasn't having much fun with it. Wind Waker on the other hand I absolutely hated the cell shading...

    MW3 Dev Manipulates MetaCritic, Gets Flamed to Death

    I don't see anything wrong with him asking people to help out because of all the troll reviews. He did mention for them to be honest so I don't think there was any ill intent in it. I have to agree with an above poster 0-1 should be reserved for absolutely unplayable garbage. I haven't...

    Bethesda Nods to Minecraft in Skyrim

    That's the first thing I thought as well. Something that really stood out at me in the article was "Examination will show a mining pick that looks a lot the implement used in Minecraft." I didn't much expect a mining pick to look like a mining pick. :P Is it different looking or more...

    You first "**** This" Moment in Gaming

    The original Legend of Zelda for NES. I managed to get all the way to Ganon but I absolutely did not know about and missed finding the silver arrows. Talk about rage inducing moment.

    Gearbox Claims Reviewers Were Unfair Toward Duke Nukem Forever

    Can't we just put the Duke's outing this time around to rest. It was a slow silent fart to finally come out but by god did it reek. Thank you Gearbox for manning up and finishing this steamer, but you need to know when to count your losses and admit that it is unpolished, stitched together...

    Poll: So pc gamers . Do you still buy your pc games at retail stores?

    I tend to funnel my money through Steam. Keeps all my titles in one nice little place and their sales are phenomenal. What they don't have I usually go to GoG for.

    China's Joyland Park Rips Off StarCraft and WoW

    This reminds me of an ex-friend who was hired to design websites for professional businesses and he just ripped textures and models / animations from World of Warcraft and used them all over the sites. I wish I knew the websites URLS.

    Blizzard: WoW Won't Be Going Free-To-Play

    In Blizzards defense they never really did say what kind of quality so they aren't lying. Although I did have a good laugh at that statement.

    Poll: Stop it with the zombies!

    I'm still not sick of zombie games. However, I do want to see me some weeping angels.
