@Genj Dunno if I've voiced this opinion on here but I strongly regret going so easy on that game in my review. It really is genuinely bad. (P.S. Inquisition is a massive improvement.)
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 21, 2014
@Ben Dude, I played Velocibox, so you have to play Divinity. This was our unspoken agreement.

I finally put my Xbox One's record function to use for the specific purpose of illustrating just why Ubisoft's stock dropped today: http://youtu.be/UyJALtCj2Tc

@Ben Divinity
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 02, 2014
@espiga I did know that, but if I'm not mistaken, that's also the week that Dragon Age, Smash Bros. and LittleBigPlanet comes out, so...
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
@pickhut @joseph You're right, I'll stop talking about this. In my defense, I'm the only person here who actually has a good reason to be angry. Okay, seriously, I'll stop talking.
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
@Genj It's not a system-seller and there's really nothing else on Xbox One worth playing if you already have a PS4, so... I'd reeeeeally advise against that.
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
@joseph_valencia Seeing as how your campaign resulted in my address getting leaked, you're free to come do it yourself.
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
@pickhut Feels like an extension of it, I guess. I always thought Jet Set Radio was kinda thin and had a terrible camera, so it's a major improvement there, but the grinding controls and colorful visuals definitely put Sunset Overdrive in the same group.
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
@joseph_valencia That's what I said, yes.
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
Bayonetta 2 is on hold. I need to maintain a rhythm with that game so it's hard to play that and something else at the same time. Thankfully, it's Call of Duty release week, a.k.a. backlog week.
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
Sunset Overdrive: I find the humor to be that lazy, grating brand of "irreverent" that describes all video game comedy these days, but the traversal system is amazing and the city design complements that beautifully and fully. So I like it.

@zippdementia @joseph_valencia @espiga GGers can say all they want that they're helping. They'd help a lot more if they said, "You know what? This is not actually that important."
Mike Suskie @SuskieNov 01, 2014
@zippdementia @joseph_valencia @espiga The argument driving "real" GamerGaters is childish and petty, and it's being perpetuated long after the movement has become a platform for harassment and hate on a scale that's increasing by the day.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 30, 2014
@joseph_valencia @pickhut Yeah, keep telling yourselves that.
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 30, 2014
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 @SuskieOct 30, 2014
@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 @SuskieOct 30, 2014
@EmP Not that it hugely matters, but that header image is actually from KOTOR II :)
Mike Suskie @SuskieOct 30, 2014
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 @SuskieOct 30, 2014
@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 @SuskieOct 30, 2014
@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. http://i.imgur.com/PwYhXlE.png
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.
