@honestgamer Check out http://www.tor.com/ They have a paragraph or two, then a link to the whole post. I just posted a blog myself and it's not really obvious that there's more.
Jason Venter @honestgamerJan 09, 2015
@jerec Please be more specific about precisely what you would like to see implemented, perhaps in response to my recent post if you need more room. I'm still finalizing a few things, so slight revisions and additions are certainly possible.
Alex Antonijevic @jerecJan 09, 2015
@honestgamer Instead of the "full post" or in addition to that link, can we have a customisable jump cut link that we can use to entice readers to keep reading? [You know you want to...]
Kyle Stepp @espigaJan 09, 2015
@honestgamer I missed the blogs! A few suggestions for user-friendliness: Add a Settings link to the user menu in the HG blogs pages. Also, when choosing a header color with the buttons, perhaps add an "other" button with an input box for hexcode colors
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 09, 2015
@honestgamer Also, you mentioned podcasts and now I'm randomly trying to imagine how an HG podcast would turn out o_O
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 09, 2015
@honestgamer I already went and started a blog elsewhere, and I don't use that one enough as is, so I probably won't be returning to my HG blog much. But it'll probably encourage me to use the forums more, so hey.

@honestgamer Just in time for the 10th anniversary of the blog feature! Funny how these things work.

HG Chatter probably isn't going to be around for much longer, but I hope you won't be TOO angry about the change. Here's an explanation: http://www.honestgamers.com/honestgamer/blog/posts/62614-welcome-to-blogs-30.html

Right now, I've run into this interesting reviewing trend, where I type most of the review, run out of steam and need to do the conclusion the next day. Partly because conclusions are always toughest for me, I'd guess.
Tim Ayre @JANUS2Jan 08, 2015
@EmP @Suskie @joseph_valencia I'm struggling to explain why I was disappointed by Dark Knight second time. I think maybe I just bought into the hype on first release and it's hard to recapture that. I do prefer Bane to the joker. So maybe I'm just crazy!
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 08, 2015
@Suskie @joseph_valencia @JANUS2 God... awful CGI Stewart. I had happily forgotten that was a thing.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 08, 2015
@EmP @joseph_valencia @JANUS2 It did, actually! It depicted Xavier being paralyzed at a young age whereas The Last Stand depicted him still walking as Patrick Stewart.
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 08, 2015
@joseph_valencia @JANUS2 The days of good Iron Man films..... that takes me back. I liked First Class. It just didn't help me with my on-going delusion that Brett Ratner doesn't exist and it was all a horrible dream.
Joseph Valencia @joseph_valenciaJan 07, 2015
@JANUS2 What didn't you like about it since release? 2008 was pretty much the last time the comic movie genre was in top form. Iron Man, Hellboy II, The Dark Knight... I don't know if we'll ever get another slate as great as that.
Tim Ayre @JANUS2Jan 07, 2015
@EmP @joseph_valencia not much love for First Class here then... In other comic hero news, I watched Dark Knight for the first time since release yesterday. I remember it being better.
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 07, 2015
@joseph_valencia @JANUS2 DAFP automatically became my favourite X-Men film the second it retconned the hell out of Last Stand.

So the 3DS release of Majora's Mask is also having a limited edition set that includes a Skull Kid figure for $49.99. Considering Zelda items tend to fetch a hefty price shortly after their stock runs out, I wonder how much this will go for. $100? $200?
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 06, 2015
@Suskie game over screen. It's like this game loves saying, "To hell with your strategy."
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 06, 2015
@Suskie Indeed. I had a character I was holding off to the back because he was almost dead. The game decided to move him to the frontline after a cutscene, and I was out of healing capabilities. Regardless of what I did, he died and I got the dreaded...

Treating myself to a long-overdue Planescape replay. Lookin' good with those HD mods. http://i.imgur.com/d7yJR7l.png

@JoeTheDestroyer It's so wrong.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 06, 2015
I already don't like this game. #NaturalDoctrine.
Joseph Valencia @joseph_valenciaJan 05, 2015
@JANUS2 Opposite reaction here. Hated "First Class", loved "Days of Future Past". I really like that they gave Charles the spotlight. They made him kind of a buffoon in "First Class", which didn't sit well with me.
Tim Ayre @JANUS2Jan 05, 2015
@joseph_valencia @zippdementia @EmP I was a bit disappointed by Days of Future Past. I preferred First Class.
Joseph Valencia @joseph_valenciaJan 05, 2015
@zippdementia @EmP I'll probably catch "Birdman" on Demand. Looks like a love it or hate it kind of movie.
Joseph Valencia @joseph_valenciaJan 05, 2015
@zippdementia @EmP The only movies I've seen this year that I've thought highly of were "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "Interstellar". I really want to see "Big Eyes" and the new Michael Mann flick that's coming out next week.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 05, 2015
@honestgamer Doh! Autocooooorrrrrrreeeeeect!
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaJan 05, 2015
@zippdementia @EmP @JANUS2 But too many people are talking about Birdman, when they should be talking about how incredibly good Imitation Game is.
Jonathan Stark @zippdementiaJan 05, 2015
@EmP @JANUS2 I enjoyed Birdman, but then I also enjoy theater, and I think its structure is more of a play within a play, then a play within a film. I do think the ending was annoyingly obscure, and took away from the film having an actual point.
Jason Venter @honestgamerJan 05, 2015
@JoeTheDestroyer It's nice of you to review Natural Doctrine for Ron, though. I'm sure he's a nice guy, and apparently the game is torture to play through (see Suskie's review).
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 05, 2015
@JoeTheDestroyer *Were, stupid autocorrect.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 05, 2015
I picked up Injustice Ultimate Edition for PS4 for $20. We're I not tied up playing Natural Doctrine for an Ron review, I'd probably be all over it.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 05, 2015
Driveclub: Glad I waited for the multiplayer issues to get fixed because in its finished form, this game is fantastic. Does some really creative stuff with lighting and weather effects; just generally the most exciting racing game I've played in years.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 05, 2015
Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge: I've never liked this series, but I saw this for $5, so no love lost. Same camera problems as ever, though this one's considerably easier, so I guess that helps? Seems meh overall.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 05, 2015
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze: Been looking for a good co-op game to play with the girlfriend since we finished Mario 3D World and this is fitting the ticket nicely. Tight, clever platformer and an ace throwback to the old DKC games.
Mike Suskie @SuskieJan 05, 2015
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker: Loved the mini-games in Mario 3D World so it stands to reason that I'm delighted by this, but there doesn't seem to be a way to turn off the motion-controlled camera, which makes this game more cumbersome than it should be.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 05, 2015
I just finished Shadow of Mordor. I like it a lot, but I think the closing missions could have been handled better.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 04, 2015
I noticed there's a spiritual successor to Clock Tower coming out called NightCry. All I can say is: please don't suck.
Wendell B @pickhutJan 04, 2015
Kersploosh: I bought this game today, beat it in an hour... I was expecting the game to be a little longer, but I guess the devs expect replay value with the different types of "balls" and speed running it. I'm thinking I should've got Velocibox, instead.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 04, 2015
amount of time into a mission, only to be stopped by a glitchy door that refused to open. I don't have time for garbage like this.
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 04, 2015
I officially gave up on Chrome just now. It didn't help that the first level was more irritating than entertaining, but the game is terribly buggy. Not being able to throw grenades because of an unresolved glitch was bad enough, but I put a fair...
Joseph Shaffer @JoeTheDestroyerJan 04, 2015
I'm very, very close to finishing Shadow of Mordor. I have all of the side missions and challenges completed, and three main missions left. Right now, I have to brand four warchiefs before accessing the next main quest.
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 04, 2015
@JANUS2 Most of all, though, for a comedy is simply wasn't funny. For a satire, it dug into a subject matter in far too focused a fashion. As fiction, it was too scatterbrained to be relevant or interesting.
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 04, 2015
@JANUS2 It was filmed on a weird 'pro calibre' shaky cam. Single takes were on average 15mins long and involved a poor cameraman noticeably struggling to follow the cast up narrow staircases and tiny corridors.
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 04, 2015
@JANUS2 The entire soundtrack was one (1) jazz drummer that got so tiresome, the film kept trying and failing to make a joke about it.
Gary Hartley @EmPJan 04, 2015
@JANUS2 Foremost, it was a satire of the film industry that excluded anyone not inside or deeply interested in it. For a comedy, the entire cinema was silent throughout and it kept opening potentially interesting plotlines only to instantly forget them.
Wendell B @pickhutJan 04, 2015
Aero Porter: I didn't think a game about managing baggage would be so hard and tense. I actually felt really, really terrible when I failed to get rid of a bomb in time, slipping a gasp when the screen went white.
Jason Venter @honestgamerJan 03, 2015
It occurs to me that having a "Reply" link at the end of HG Chatter posts that appear on the site's front page would be a nice convenience and may further encourage discussion. I might have to add them at some point.
Tim Ayre @JANUS2Jan 03, 2015
@EmP Interesting. The reviews seem positive. What was wrong with it?
