@joseph_valencia @pickhut Yeah, keep telling yourselves that.
Mike Suskie @Suskie05:48 PM
The staff of GameCritics, myself included, just got doxxed. It's a volunteer-only site that explicitly discloses its relationships with publishers. I was quiet before, but officially, if you support GamerGate, go shove a hot poker up your ass.
Mike Suskie @Suskie03:41 PM
@EmP Heh, you didn't have to. Just felt the need to flex my KOTOR fandom muscles there. Took me 15 minutes, by the way.
Mike Suskie @Suskie01:20 PM
@EmP Not that it hugely matters, but that header image is actually from KOTOR II :)
Mike Suskie @Suskie12:43 PM
Just in time for Ben's review, I've begun playing Velocibox. It will not surprise you to learn that I suck at it. It may surprise you to learn that I think it's a great game.
Mike Suskie @Suskie11:36 AM
@Ben Just so you know, I only played up until the first murder is committed, so I won't be chiming in this time. Busy busy busy release schedule :|
Mike Suskie @Suskie12:57 AM
@zigfried @pickhut @JoeTheDestroyer @joseph_valencia @EmP I can wait.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 29, 2014
@Ben Nah.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 29, 2014
Bayonetta 2 is a perfect character action game.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 28, 2014
I already love having Joe on staff. My Evil Within review was up in, like, three seconds.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 27, 2014
@Masters @pickhut Guess you'll just have to wait for my full review! Tee hee!
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 27, 2014
Bought Bayonetta 2 today. I think I'm still officially in line to cover the staff review of this game, but I'd like to offer Zig the honors if he's willing.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 27, 2014
The Evil Within finished. 13 and a half hours, 31 deaths. I'm led to believe that this is better than average. Review in progress; will be finished either tonight or tomorrow.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 27, 2014
@espiga Nah. This place is actually right across the street from my favorite concert venue but I've kept forgetting to get a picture of it. Finally just snagged that from Google Maps, heh.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 26, 2014
Hey Espiga, I didn't realize you had a Spanish bakery in northeast Philly.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 25, 2014
I think The Evil Within might just have the worst story of any game I've ever played.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 24, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @joseph_valencia @Ben It came out around the time GBA was being eclipsed by DS anyway I couldn't have cared less, honestly.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 23, 2014
Finally working on a Divinity: Original Sin review. I'd be ashamed of myself for not doing everything in my power to get the word out about this incredible game.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 21, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer I'm not touching this even though I'm the one who technically first uttered THAT word.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 21, 2014
@joseph_valencia It has the aesthetic of a Silent Hill game, but it plays and feels like RE4. Fast-moving and varied, big focus on being swarmed by enemy mobs, etc.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 21, 2014
The Evil Within is pretty cool so far; actually manages to replicate RE4 better than 5 and 6 did. Shame the story is a load of bubbling toss, but as an excuse to rapid-fire unnerving set pieces, whatever.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 20, 2014
Finished Alien: Isolation. Comically overlong. Alien encounters remain fantastic throughout, but other enemies and padded objectives make it tedious. Very much worth playing if it sounds cool, but be warned about that.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 20, 2014
@zippdementia @JoeTheDestroyer Just all this GamerGate crap. It's stupid and I want it to die.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 16, 2014
I really hate the game industry right now.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 16, 2014
@Masters I like Assassin's Creed in general and that game was absolute garbage.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 15, 2014
@zippdementia All three. AI quirks, pathfinding problems, etc. I was once hiding from an android in a locker and as it looked for me, its face clipped through the door.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 15, 2014
From what I've played so far, Alien: Isolation is unbelievably scary, but it's also disappointingly unpolished. Really wish this thing had been more technically proficient.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 14, 2014
@overdrive They're just digital cards that you get for playing your games. You can put them on the market and set your own price, and people buy them. No idea why, but hey, I ain't complaining.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 14, 2014
Also, I have $20 in my Steam wallet after some weirdo bought one of my Ryse cards for that much, and now I'm wondering if I should just get it over with and try out Velocibox.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 14, 2014
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor review will be up shortly. Loved it loved it loved it. Will be hitting up both Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within this week.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 03, 2014
@EmP So close :(
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Natural Doctrine. Review forthcoming, but man, this is awful.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Hyrule Warriors. Love Zelda, never played Dynasty Warriors. I'm actually enjoying this. Frantic, sprawling level design keeps the game from getting repetitive and the fan service is almost too thorough. Will continue playing.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Not far in, but actually seems pretty predictable so far since it's basically just following the same template at the original. Hopefully it's got some surprises I'm not expecting.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Orbital Gear. Cruddy little gravity-based battle arena shooter with minimal features and no oomph to the actual combat. Took it on as a review assignment for another site just because it looked neat. It isn't. No one's playing it, either.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Velocity 2X. Actually one of the best games I've played this year; makes the original feel one-note in comparison. A speedrun game that's friendly for people who want to take it slow, too. Runs brilliant on Vita. Lots of unique ideas. Thumbs up.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Super Mario 3D World. Was never nuts about 3D Land but, again, needed good local multi. Basically tailor-made for co-op since the inclusion of more players actually makes it more difficult and hectic. Not an innovator, but solid, lighthearted fun.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Mario Kart 8. Dismissed this for months, then finally needed a good local multiplayer game. Split-screen online is my savior. I don't retract that this is a predictable game, but riveting track designs and easy online access make it good at what it does.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 29, 2014
Aight, rapid-fire gaming progress rundown.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 27, 2014
@Ben I've been on the market for local multi games to play with my girlfriend and those have been our two primary choices lately. Neither is terribly exciting solo but they open many doors when there's someone else in the room.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 24, 2014
@Ben That was something I really appreciated about The Wolf Among Us. It was very honest about what it was.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 24, 2014
@Ben I do agree about the gamey aspects... they're my biggest complaint about Danganronpa. I kinda wish they'd just gone full visual novel because dynamicless mini-games like that add absolutely nothing.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 24, 2014
@Ben I'm kinda slow when it comes to crime mysteries so you'll probably predict more than I did. That reveal about the victim totally took me off guard.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 22, 2014
@Ben Second case is my favorite. Lots that I didn't see coming.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 22, 2014
@Ben I liked that case less for the reveal about the killer and more what we learn about the victim and how it affects/involves the main character. I never saw ALL of the puzzle in that game.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 20, 2014
@Ben I know. That game hits fast and hard.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 18, 2014
@Ben This sounds like the most horrible game in the world.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 14, 2014
@honestgamer @espiga Got any more?
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 06, 2014
Finally finished Divinity: Original Sin tonight with 78 hours logged. Whew. Easy GOTY for me, at least so far, and possibly the best CRPG I've ever played.
Mike Suskie @SuskieSep 05, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer I say it again: Only video game to make me cry.
