Hello.


Trials and Tribulations with Friday the 13th: The Game
June 15, 2017

Bought Friday the 13th: The Game on May 26.

Played a considerable amount of online matches over its launch weeks, right through the nightmare that was its database/server issues.

Wrote seven paragraphs into a review.

Intentionally wrote seven paragraphs into a review I knew I wasn't going to finish, because I don't have a concrete verdict of the game.

I don't think I've ever been in this type of situation with a review before, as far I as I can recall. I actually heavily considered not reviewing Friday the 13th: The Game after the disastrous first weekend with the game where getting into ONE match took anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. And when I finally got in, there was always a 50/50 chance the host would quit, drop-kicking the other players back to the title screen.

Y'all need John Wick 2 in your lives if you haven't watched it yet.
February 14, 2017

I very much enjoyed the first film back when I got its home release, and while I looked forward to a sequel, I was always pretty skeptical if it would live up to the standards of the original film. Just saw Chapter 2 earlier today, and this movie is a fantastic action film. I didn't think the sequel would outdo the action scenes in the first, at best be its equal, but the stuff on display here is a spectacle. The gun and fight choreography is jaw-dropping at times, and much credit goes to, and this also applies to the first film, the lack of shakey cam; you clearly see everything happening on screen, and for the most part, the actors are actually going at it with each other.

It's a very small thing that doesn't really bring down the game in any significant way, but the one thing I despised the most about RE7 is when it forced you to make the choice of using the one remaining serum on either Mia or Zoe. This shouldn't have been a moment in the game. This shouldn't have been a choice that the player had to make. The entire reason Ethan is there is to find her wife, Mia. You should choose her by default. It doesn't make any sense within the context of the plot NOT to choose her.

PSA: Don't buy Double Dragon IV
January 31, 2017

The game came out today, so I was curious. I just got through the first five stages and it's a complete joke. The gameplay is absolutely flat and it feels like this was made over one weekend. It feels like a cash grab that plays on people's nostalgia. I'll probably add more after I beat the game.

Edit: I just noticed if you walk all the way to the bottom of the screen, no one can hit you. This is a damn trainwreck.

Edit 2: NO, SERIOUSLY. YOU NEED TO SEE THIS.

Recent Stuff 22

"Next blog entry is likely going to be mid to late December." - A Filthy Liar

-GAMES-

I think I'm going to drop this section. I've realized I don't like talking about games I just spent time already talking about in reviews, especially if it's something I finished writing 3 to 4 weeks prior. Also, I don't particularly like writing about games I'm currently in the middle of playing/reviewing, since it, due to past experience, deflates my drive to actually write the review for some reason. Dunno why. At best, I'll talk about a game if I really, really want to mention one.

Recent Stuff 21
November 21, 2016

The sections were actually written in the reverse order you see it here, too. I finally tried finishing and cleaning it up as I made final touches to my recent review. I dunno why it takes me so long to push these out when I actually have stuff to talk about.

-GAMES-

I played and reviewed a bit of games since my last blog entry, so I really only want to comment on a few.
