  1. Game Deals and Subscriptions 2017

    WOW, Super Mega Baseball 2 for free already. I don't mind paying $30 for it (and again when it gets ported to Switch inevitably), but what a deal for XB1 owners with GWG.

    Yeah, I'm out on God of War. It's an actively bad game with a dopey attempt at a parent-child relationship that just suuuuucks and has none of the nuance or tenderness of something like Lee and Clementine in The Walking Dead, and it's not fun to play as you fight a bunch of bland enemies with super-long health bars with your two-moves-and-a-rune offense while the annoying little kid yells in the background about the eight enemies creeping up behind you that you can't pay attention to because you're busy juggling two enemies for five minutes to whittle down their health bars. It's not worth hanging around anymore to see if it gets better, something that I increasingly doubt. Awful game, and I'm not sure where the consensus that it's a GotY contender among the game reviewers comes from. It's pretty, I guess. But yeah, it's a total swing-and-a-miss of a game, one of the worst that I've had the displeasure to play in awhile. Thank goodness for GCU at Best Buy, as I will trade this in for pretty much what I paid for it and then just use that money on DKC Tropical Freeze next month.

    assfax is fantastic, but also there is no way that he'd ever be able to co-exist with Jeff Gerstmann. Plus, they're almost all video and audio. Kotaku, on the other hand, is basically Jason Schreier and then a bunch of garbage. They could use dude/ette. Or Polygon, which is pretty much what Kotaku would be if Jason Schreier didn't work there.

    God of War kinda sucks so far, especially the combat. Sticking with it for three or four more hours at least. I hear that it gets better after a few hours.

    I just need someone to let me sign in on their PS3 so that I can transfer Def Jam: Fight For New York: The Takeover onto my Vita. I bought that shit months ago and I'd like to not have to pull out my OG Xbox to play through it again like I did about a year ago. Also, I confirmed that Def Jam: Fight For New York is still the best fighting game of all time about a year ago.

    Bombslinger is basically "What if Bomberman, but roguelike?" Which is to say, it's pretty awesome. I've only made it a level or two into the game, but the boss battles are fun, and the strategy-style gameplay is good because it's almost impossible to fuck it up. Not totally impossible, as last month's PS+ game for Vita Bombing Busters would be evidence of, but almost impossible. I like the sprite work in the game, too. It's nice and colorful and chunky.

    Jon Blow can design the hell out of a puzzle, but he thinks that having that one specific skill means that he's an intelligent person who knows lots about everything and has deep things to say. He's like Ben Carson. Has one unique skill that he does exceedingly well, not the brightest in any other capacity, thinks he's way smarter than he is because of his one unique skill.

    That's pretty much every isometric CRPG from the '90s ever. This is behind my "Fallout: New Vegas is the best Fallout game" argument. Same elaborate questlines and freedom toward completing the story without the dull combat of Fallout or Fallout 2.

    Like yo, sometimes you have to come to grips with the fact that your pops was a piece of shit. If Tiffany Trump can do it, so can Harry Smith.

    Oh, fuck no. I hate Earthbound. Hard pass, then. Thank you.

    Everybody praises Undertale for this very thing. Should I play Undertale, by the way? Haven't tried it yet. (Also, there are a ton of 4X games that you can win by essentially playing in a pacifist manner.)

    Yeah, like I was irritated that I couldn't start as a kingdom in North Africa, but on the other hand, there's so much content there already that you don't need to buy anything.

    I would pay good money to see New Jack slice Kid Rock up. Well, now I'm bummed that we'll never get this.

    Blame Run-DMC and Public Enemy again and see what happens, goddammit.

    I think that he's a solid tag wrestler and a sub-average worker. I don't remember any Cody Rhodes 1v1 match that I would label above "perfectly acceptable." I haven't seen any new wrestling for like ten months, though, so he could have upped his game since then. RE: Oyaji's point, I don't dispute the difficulty of being a top star, but I actually think that one of the sneakily-hardest things to do in wrestling is to be good at comedy. Most comedy wrestlers are pretty bad at it, I think. Disqo is a level beneath Santino as a comedy wrestler. I think that being an effective comedy midcarder is a pretty tough thing to pull off correctly. Not as hard as being a top star, but pretty hard. The skill level it takes to pull the comedy thing off is probably closer to the skill that it takes to be a top star that you're allowing for.
