@Ben I've been trying to come up with a reason for over a year now for wanting a PS4/One, and I can barely count over five games that I would want to try...
Wendell B @pickhutNov 18, 2014
Maybe it's just me... but I don't understand the appeal of rebuying a game, at full price, that just came out a year prior and sold a billion dollars in its first few days, just because it now has slightly improved graphics and a first person mode.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 17, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Funny you should say that, because I added games to my wishlist for the first time last night! I got tired of trying to remembering games with unusual titles. xP
Wendell B @pickhutNov 14, 2014
Turbo Dismount: Cute, point-based crash game, but only a select few of the dev-made courses are worth replaying over and over again. You pretty much have to rely on fan-made maps.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 12, 2014
@joseph_valencia I only watch other people play it on YouTube. I think I would be more irritated than scared to play the game with its jump scares.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 12, 2014
I've played Oniken, and for some reason I can't complete a review for it. I know what I want to write, but for 7 days, all I can show for it are 2 paragraphs. For now, I'm just gonna play something else. It's a nice, Ninja Gaiden-style (NES) game, though.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 11, 2014
I love how Freddy 2 hasn't been out for more than a day, and it seems like people already expect everyone else to know how the AI functions, the names of the animatronics, and the "lore". I'm having Portal 1 flashbacks.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 05, 2014
@zippdementia I bet that guy can write an entire novel series based on his adventures in the game.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 03, 2014
@honestgamer Ha, they actually got ThunderBlade! I remember reading the interviews for the original 3D classics, and one of the guys kept saying he wanted to do ThunderBlade in nearly all of them.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 03, 2014
@joseph_valencia I can't believe the translator tried to do the voice, too...
Wendell B @pickhutNov 03, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Kirby games, Mystical Ninja, R-Type games, Super/Adventure Island games, Final Fight games, Vectorman, Shining Force games, Road Rash games, Lemmings, Lost Vikings. I'm just throwing out names I can think of. Quality will vary. xD
Wendell B @pickhutNov 02, 2014
Downloaded Valet Parking 1989 from the DSiWare library thinking I could get some mileage for a review. Turns out to be a very simple, overhead "don't touch the sides" management game. Even with the 80s theme, I doubt I could write a decent-sized review...
Wendell B @pickhutNov 01, 2014
@pickhut @joseph @Suskie don't want that taken away from them.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 01, 2014
@joseph_valencia @Suskie Can we move this to HG Mail discussion at least? As much as I want to say more, and I do feel hurt by certain comments, other users have voiced that they come here because it's a sanctuary of sorts for them. I just... (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutNov 01, 2014
@Suskie I've read people compare it to Jet Set Radio on the basis of the grinding and such. Is the comparison justified or does Sunset Overdrive feel like its own thing?
Wendell B @pickhutOct 30, 2014
@Suskie @joseph_valencia Look, I'm not going to say anything else, because you're rightfully upset at information being exposed. I'm just gonna let you cool down.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 30, 2014
@Suskie I'm sorry that happened to you, Suskie. However, the pro-gg side doesn't support doxxing, it must be people acting on their own.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 30, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer There's a lot of games I really enjoy, but if I ever reviewed them, I know they'll get a 5 or 6. As for one I actually reviewed, Kane & Lynch 1 comes to mind. The campaign has issues and the multi is limited, but the latter was still fun!
Wendell B @pickhutOct 27, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @joseph_valencia @EmP @Suskie If not for us, then do it for that Honest Envo guy, Zig.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 27, 2014
@Masters @Suskie I watched someone play the first 15-some minutes of the game on YouTube. Simple question: is the entire game as ridiculous as that opening escape sequence?
Wendell B @pickhutOct 24, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @overdrive I'm sorry, but you've just convinced me to play the DC version at some point in the future. I must experience the misery firsthand!
Wendell B @pickhutOct 24, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Was it that bad? It was a game I almost bought, numerous times, back when the DC was still kicking, but wildly polarizing opinions drove me away. Even when new copies were going for a dollar, I didn't pick it up. >_>
Wendell B @pickhutOct 23, 2014
So, I just went on Steam to do a quick search for something else, and I'm greeted on the front page by... Slave Zero. Now that's a plot twist.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 22, 2014
I'm currently browsing the DSiWare catalog for the first time, and wow, there's a lot of games here I'd like to try out. This definitely kicks the crap out of the WiiWare's library...
Wendell B @pickhutOct 21, 2014
Totally Forgot About File: Platinum Games developing a Legend of Korra game, and that it comes out this week. Might be the first time I'm not really interested in checking out a PG game... and this coming from a person who imported Anarchy Reigns.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 09, 2014
So, I read that Hatsune Miku performed on David Letterman's show. I thought someone was joking... until I saw the video: . Of all the guests to appear on his show, I never thought in a million years that this would be one...
Wendell B @pickhutOct 05, 2014
Has anyone here tried Shadow of Mordor? I'm not a LotR fan, but the way people are describing the game, how deep and varied the rivalries get, makes me want to check it out... if I had a next-gen console. I heard the PS3/360 ports have cutbacks.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 04, 2014
@pickhut @overdrive After watching some clips, seems like Sengoku 2 might be the "best" in the series. Haven't played it, so grain of salt, etc.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 04, 2014
@overdrive The Arcade/NeoGeo. Yeah, I was thinking about reviewing it next because of the bizarre imagery and scenery changes, but the act of beating the game proved impossible. I heard Sengoku 2 is more of the same, but that 3 is actually a decent game.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 03, 2014
Yesterday, I tried beating SNK's Sengoku for what feels like the millionth time over the last few years. I failed again. The game is just so disgustingly boring...
Wendell B @pickhutSep 30, 2014
I know this isn't game-related, but something that's been really bugging me lately in Internet conversations is someone pulling the "I'm annoyed that you're annoyed by (comment)" post. It's a pretty weak and childish attempt to end a discussion.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 28, 2014
So a certain game I might review has compelled me to play NAM-1975 for the first time. It's definitely more goofy and entertaining than I thought it would be. The cutscenes are comedy gold, too.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 24, 2014
Test Drive Le Mans: Since my Dreamcast is still out, I popped this in for a quick play. The car designs still look real pretty to this day, especially under the right lighting conditions.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 20, 2014
Sports Jam: This is a ridiculously average game, maybe slightly below, but it has one of the goofiest characters I've seen in a video game. I'm tempted to review this instead of Virtua Tennis so I won't suffer through Doubles anymore.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 19, 2014
Virtua Tennis: I was willing to give the last Doubles botched win the benefit of the doubt... but the same thing happened in another Doubles match. Game just handed the other team a victory during my mid swing animation. This game's programming is weird.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 18, 2014
@pickhut Update: Just destroyed that same team a few minutes later. Wasn't having none of that.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 18, 2014
@pickhut It was down to the last point, and just as I was returning a very simple serve, in MID SWING the game suddenly ended and our side lost; I didn't miss the ball, the ball wasn't outside a line or whatever, the game just handed them a victory.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 18, 2014
Virtua Tennis: They're still annoying, but Doubles are getting a little better because I remembered you can position your CPU partner. Also, the game LITERALLY gave up on me on my last Doubles match. (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutSep 17, 2014
@pickhut just want to give up and play Virtua Tennis 3 on my 360 instead. 3 has minor tweaks to the mechanics, but they make a HUGE difference.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 17, 2014
Virtua Tennis: The Doubles matches are the bane of my existence in World Tour mode. My CPU partners are the most incompetent players I've had to deal with in this game. I mean, Virtua Tennis is an engaging game, but there are times where I (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutSep 13, 2014
Virtua Tennis: I feel like the controls aren't as responsive as they should be sometimes. I was going against the final opponent in arcade mode, and at times it felt like the game deliberately gave up on me even though I was able to make a shot.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 13, 2014
I was contemplating doing CART Flag to Flag as a second Dreamcast review this month, but remembered I tried two years ago and gave up halfway through its championship mode out of extreme boredom. Maybe Virtua Tennis... but the controller... gah.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 06, 2014
I want to write a new review so bad right now, either for Sniper Elite 3 or a Dreamcast game (for 9/9). Sometimes it really sucks being busy with other things in life. x_X
Wendell B @pickhutSep 04, 2014
So am I the only one who thinks and fears that Bayonetta 2 is going to bomb hard? I enjoyed the first game and want to play this, but, unless I'm looking in the wrong places, it seems like no one is looking forward to the sequel other than the core fans.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 04, 2014
@wolfqueen001 I read the plot synopsis for his three upcoming movies (Tombstones, Taken 3, Run All Night), and they sound almost interchangeable. I guess it works for him if people are still willing to see these in theaters...
Wendell B @pickhutSep 03, 2014
Just saw a commercial about a movie where Liam Neeson has to find someone who was kidnapped, and I automatically thought it was Taken 3. It wasn't. Then I found out Taken 3 was an actual thing regardless. How many kidnapping movies is he going to star in?
Wendell B @pickhutSep 01, 2014
@pickhut Okay, replaying the SE3 Hitler DLC a third time just to see him get killed by a church bell was worth it. Kinda. Maybe. Not really. You're better off just watching a video of his deaths:
Wendell B @pickhutAug 31, 2014
Replayed the SE3 Hitler DLC again, and after browsing the achieve list, I discovered there's 7 unique ways to kill him. Would've been nice for the game to give me more than a few seconds to realize this, or better yet, implied within the mission. >_>
Wendell B @pickhutAug 31, 2014
Tried Sniper Elite III's Hitler DLC to see if Rebellion botched it like in V2. They pulled off the exact "blink and it's over" nonsense. Why can't I have a savory Hitler kill? Rebellion, have you never played NES Bionic Commando or Wolfenstein 3D??
Wendell B @pickhutAug 31, 2014
@Germ I thought someone else would've answered this by now, because... I have no clue. It was a browser game thingy that I never joined in on because I was too occupied at the time with other things.
