News Comments > Void Destroyer Released
9. Re: Void Destroyer Released Jan 23, 2015, 13:52 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
This game looks great, somewhere between X-Wing and Battlezone 2; I've had it in my Steam wishlist for awhile, since I heard about it in Early Access, I suppose I'll have to break down and get it now.

25% discount on Steam until the 27th, apparently. ($11.24)


*EDIT* Whoops, panbient beat me to the battlezone reference

So Borderlands and Battlezone had a baby and launched it into space?

Dammit Valve, how are people going to easily get their anime porn games with your crazy censorship!?

The classic American Sex/Violence double standard is alive and well.

Wow, that was fast. I guess Sony figured it made the money it was going to make.

These days, I think a lot of these type of movies make most of their money in Netflix/Amazon/Redbox fees, dvd/blu ray sales, etc.

Especially in the US, most people only go to the theatres to see the super block busters like Avengers or Episode 7. Plus, they already released it day 1 on a couple streaming services, so this isn't really a big deal, in my opinion at least.

All that said, I saw it, it's amusing in the standard Seth Rogen way. Poor choice of subject material seems pretty obvious(current, living Foreign Leader, regardless of his/her crimes), but it seems impossible that any rational person would take it seriously.

So, all discussions of Buy to Play vs F2P aside, is this game any good?

Step 1: Buy a decent standing desk, that has a good range of height adjustment.

Step 2: Put a treadmill behind the desk, turn on slow speed, walk and compute.

Step 3: Fitness!


I keep meaning to get a standing desk, but they are always at ripoff-level prices, at least as far as I'm willing to spend on a few pieces of wood and metal. I suppose it'd be pretty easy to make one if you have some woodworking/metalworking ability.

*EDIT* Hrm, seem to be some halfway decent ones for 'reasonable' prices on Amazon now: Here

This story makes me curious, what exactly does the person killing themselves repeatedly get? Just "Lolz?" Or is there some other mechanic in CoD:AW being abused here? Like dying a lot unlocks weapons or something?

Green Bay falling apart in the 4th quarter was heart breaking, I don't care for the Seahawks. Be interested to see how they do with 2 of their biggest defensive performers potentially out with injuries. New England was ruthless, they were still playing Brady long past it being necessary. Belichick is a dick haha.

Belichick never got over having his perfect season ruined by the Giants.

He plays every game without mercy, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in sports, honestly. He's probably sleeping a bit easier since the Giants are terrible and didn't even make the playoffs this year, which practically guarantees the Patriots victory.

Belichick's Patriots vs Non-Giants teams = 100% superbowl wins. Vs the Giants, 0% wins.

Also, Fish on Ectasy: Nice, another pyschoreactive chemical that doesn't break down at all in the human body, slowly gathering in our water supply. GG, humanity.

Hrm, interesting that they think there's an ISP problem somewhere, and don't think it has anything to do with double goblins dropping thousands of veiled crystals, clogging up my screen with useless crafting mats.

Diablo 3, still the best game to play while watching Netflix.

Broken mechanic, clueless developers, P2W... hopefully this game fails utterly.

Unfortunately, it involves zombies and "survival," so I am sure it'll be a huge success and more games will be made to copy it and it's micropayments.

And... that's the death knell for this game, for me at least.

Yet another P2W game skipped.

News Comments > Hotline Miami 2 Refused Classification in AU
12. Re: Hotline Miami 2 Refused Classification in AU Jan 15, 2015, 23:19 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Wow, didn't realize the graphic style was such a major stumbling block for some of you guys, Hotline Miami was actually pretty damned good. Tight twitchy gameplay, killer music, good level of difficulty.

Do these sort of ratings refusal things mean sites like gog.com cannot show the game to anybody with an Australian IP or something, or just no Australian based store can sell it?

Either way seems like it'll be no issue for people with a modicum of knowledge in Australia to get it, so no issue here.

The next phase of this story: a darkened room: Kurt Busch found dead with a dart in his neck, as the maid spins his office chair around and screams!

In a nearby trashcan lies the only clue, a dented wedding band, missing it's stone.

March 26th? Entirely acceptable. I'll finish up my current half-done RPGs and make way for Pillars with ease.

Hrm, I'm tempted to go in for at least $15 for Shadowrun:HK, I got the first two, played through the first one and found it good, and the second one apparently is much better, according pretty much universal reviews. (It's in the queue!)

I'll burn through Dragonfall real quick and see if I still want another game in that engine.

Hrm, this D3 patch isn't terrible, but it sure doesn't feel like the result of 6+ months of work.

There are still plenty of 'dud' legendaries with no Legendary affix, 2-3 years after release. D3 will be FAR better off if they drop this seasonal bullshit and just give EVERY legendary a USEFUL affix.

Offline/Mod ability would help also.

Hrm, I've been playing the Banner Saga recently, that score is so depressingly amazing. Hopefully Wintory's protest goes well. From that article and the linked ones it sounds like yet another attempt by corporations to ream some musicians.

Poor Lucas, a few good ideas lost in an avalanche of shitty ones.

It'll really burn when these new films come out and blow his last three out of the water.

Still, he made a metric shit-ton of money off of this franchise, nobody's going to be shedding too many tears.

This is from 9 months ago: H1Z1 monetization plans revealed.

Hrm, a little vague, but they claim they're going to attempt to avoid pay to win. I'll check this game out eventually.

Nothing on their webpage or Steam, from my extensive 5 second glance, feature list seems interesting though.

All you people talk about this time of year is Hand-Egg. :/

Haha, an excellent usage of the classic Hand-Egg.

I'd say Payton should retire immediately, but he's still getting paid millions to play a child's game so... stay until you're 50, Manning. Just don't go into politics!
