@JoeTheDestroyer @pickhut You DEFINITELY don't deserve Fez 2.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyer01:21 AM
@pickhut important game of all time.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyer01:21 AM
@pickhut Ugh, that guy. I don't blame him for being pissed off, because I sure as hell would be if 99% of the internet were constantly trolling me, but I he needs to get over himself. "You don't deserve Fez 2." Oh noooooo! 'Cause Fez 1 was the most...

You know, Phil Fish should consider a career in horror movies, because he has this amazing ability for showing up out of nowhere and shouting stuff when you least expect it.
Wendell B @pickhut08:41 PM
Have you ever had that moment where it felt like you played a game 6/12 months ago, but it turned out to be more than that? I was just looking through my achievement lists on my Xbox 360, and the "Last played" dates are blowing my mind.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyer02:09 PM
@honestgamer @espiga @jerec I have noticed that there's a growing number of people who leave comments on articles on Facebook saying, "Ugh, you didn't say it was a video! I can read, you know!"
Jason Venter @honestgamer01:03 PM
@espiga @JoeTheDestroyer @jerec I don't generally enjoy video content at all (either producing or, often, watching amateur productions), and I know there are others like me. I hope HG can appeal to a much greater % of that specific group over time.
Kyle Stepp @espiga11:06 AM
@JoeTheDestroyer @jerec My own personal style is to Stream with friends watching and adding commentary via skype. The result is a humorous blend of game talk, random conversation, shit talking, and drunken belligerence.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyer10:06 AM
@jerec @espiga I've thought about starting a Twitch account. I dunno, I tend to be more of an article type person than a video one.
Alex Antonijevic @jerecAug 19, 2014
@espiga @JoeTheDestroyer Yeah, it does seem to be the way it's going. But I find most video reviewers have annoying voices and the reviews are overly simplistic, cliched and just... I don't know. I couldn't do it myself. I hate my voice.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 19, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @jerec Also, it'd be nice for something to get a lot of hits, but also unrealistic. Everything is all about video content these days, which is why nearly everything I do now is video-based.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 19, 2014
@jerec The closest we've had to that brought on endless waves of whining. I'm not sure we can withstand another attack like that.
Alex Antonijevic @jerecAug 18, 2014
Man, I look at the top 50 contributors based on hits, and the most popular reviews... and I doubt anything now could even come close since the site doesn't seem to have much of an audience. Someone needs to write something that goes absolutely viral.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 17, 2014
@espiga The other 16 parts can be seen by checking out my channel and looking at the "highlights." It was a 4 and a half hour SH session last night, so I split it into 15 minute chunks to make things a bit more digestible.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 17, 2014
Playing through P.T. the other day gave me the inspiration to play the very first of the Silent Hill games, something I've never played before. Of course, I've documented the experience. Part 1 of 17 is here!
Wendell B @pickhutAug 17, 2014
So, yeah, went back to playing V2 for a bit after a week with 3, and immediately I could tell: V2 is easily the better game.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 16, 2014
@pickhut I guess it goes without saying, and I'd hate to say it after the fun I had with the game, but don't get Sniper Elite III on the 360/PS3 in its current state. It doesn't seem to be a problem with the PS4/One consoles, but don't take my word on it.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 16, 2014
@pickhut Well.... at least I completed the game before this happened. And I kinda don't want to delete saved data. Guess I'll play V2 instead. >_>
Wendell B @pickhutAug 16, 2014
Sniper Elite III: So today I found out I can't play this game anymore because it freezes at the title screen while loading data. I checked online for fixes, and apparently, this is an issue lots of people are having that hasn't been patched yet.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 16, 2014
Debating whether to get back into gaming with the PS4. In the meantime, enjoying retroing my way through Tex Murphy: under a killing moon. Fuck yes.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 16, 2014
@espiga @Suskie Yeah, there's some good stuff lining up for Survival Horror. I'm also interested in Alien: Isolation. Maybe together, it's enough to push me into a PS4 sale. Even if I have to *sigh* use a credit card.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 15, 2014
Sniper Elite III: beat the campaign mode. The last level was weird. It almost felt like an amalgamation of things I've seen in various media over the last few decades.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 15, 2014
@Suskie I played it last night, and had the good sense to stream it with my friends on Skype for all to enjoy:
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 15, 2014
Probably worth mentioning that it literally made me scream at one point.
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 15, 2014
Just played PT. Honestly one of the scariest things I've ever played. If it's any indication of where Kojima is taking Silent Hill, I am, to my great surprise, 100% on board.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 15, 2014
Sniper Elite III: completed the 7th mission, and the game has grown on me despite its flaws. I dunno yet if it's as good as V2. I need to think long and hard about that.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 14, 2014
@EmP Still sounda better than what the franchise has been doing.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 13, 2014
Sniper Elite III: it's a bigger beast and has some interesting improvements over its immediate predecessor, but its glaring flaws are doing a wonderful job at making 3 inferior to V2. I'm still enjoying myself, but they really needed to fix some things...
Gary Hartley @EmPAug 13, 2014
Great; just what psychological horror needs. Unskipable cut scenes married with self-congratulatory, overly-pretentious dribble and repressed sexual aggression spread egregiously over scant actual gameplay. Coloured me excited.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 13, 2014
@Germ @Suskie @honestgamer Yeah, Xbox exclusives are about as long lasting as breath mints.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 13, 2014
@pickhut @honestgamer @EmP Wow, that looks like a fantastic match
Jeremy Davis @GermAug 13, 2014
@Suskie @honestgamer Timed exclusive confirmed:
Wendell B @pickhutAug 13, 2014
@pickhut Finished the third level, and it had to be the most unintentionally comical playthrough I've had in the entire Sniper Elite series. The bugs and the obsessive use of bloom made it a B Movie experience.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 13, 2014
@honestgamer @EmP I'm sure he's getting the vapors and tweeting Kojima right now for more scenes of sexy CGI Norman Reedus.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 12, 2014
@pickhut Okay, just completed the second level, and the radar isn't as bad as I thought. Though, I've noticed an almost ironic dilemma I'm having with this game compared to... well, I'll save that for the review if I write one.
Wendell B @pickhutAug 12, 2014
Sniper Elite III: I was aware this game included a mini-radar in the corner of the screen. I was unaware that you can't get rid of it...
Mike Suskie @SuskieAug 12, 2014
@Germ @honestgamer We all know how long Xbox "exclusives" last.
Jason Venter @honestgamerAug 12, 2014
Surely @EmP will be delighted to hear that Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima is workign on a new Silent Hill game, alongside director Guillermo Del Toro:
Jeremy Davis @GermAug 12, 2014
@honestgamer Maybe timed, maybe not. A PC release seems inevitable, at least.
Jason Venter @honestgamerAug 12, 2014
@Germ I hadn't heard that. An Gamescom announcement? I'm not happy, but it will probably be a timed exclusive. I like to get new games in a series on the same platform, and I bought Tomb Raider on PS4. *sigh*
Jeremy Davis @GermAug 12, 2014
Good thing I despised the Tomb Raider reboot, or I would be upset about the sequel going Xbone only.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 12, 2014
@zippdementia Also been revisiting a lot of older games via "Watch out for Fireballs," which is a pretty great retro podcast. Covers a lot of games other retro-casts don't, like Planescape, Longest Journey, Shadowrun. Lot of niche games.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 12, 2014
@zippdementia ... my CR level, if I just take enough potions and cast enough buff spells. Then again, I know WAY more about D&D these days then I did when I first played Baldur's Gate, and I think that's pretty critical.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaAug 12, 2014
Gaming progress! Back to Baldur's Gate, been making some serious progress. It's funny how difficult I found this game as a kid, while now I find it pretty easy. Oh sure, I have the occasional reload, but I can tackle things way beyond...
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 12, 2014
I got to the final stage on Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel. I may have had all I can stand. Review forthcoming, some day.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 12, 2014
@honestgamer According to what I've read, Zero is a spin-off of Aero (apparently they're rivals or something like that), so that might be why. I'm not sure about Aero, but Virtual Console isn't missing much without Zero...
Jason Venter @honestgamerAug 12, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Somehow, in my feeble brain, I always get that mixed up with Aero the Acrobat. I've played neither title, though Aero was on Virtual Console, I believe. I don't think Zero was...
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 12, 2014
So far, Zero is not especially good. It's pretty much a standard animal-themed platformer with slightly irritating jump mechanics, made worse by its reliance on special maneuvers that you would most likely only know about if you read the manual.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 12, 2014
It also came to my attention that I've only reviewed on Sega Genesis game here. I aim to remedy that. I've compiled a list of games to play and eventually review. I tore into Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel a few minutes ago, and made it to a fire stage.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerAug 12, 2014
I decided that since I'm more than 25% of the way through my text that I'd take some time to game and blow off some steam. Unfortunately, I'm not picking up Walking Dead right away, because I don't want to re-hook myself on that while studying.
