  1. You'll have to set aside some time to read this, but it goes into a lot.
  2. Just a quick hello, shit has really hit the fan for me and my family. Bear with me. I find out out Wednesday night my son has a stage 4 brain stem tumor, FUCK!! My wife and I have been driving 4 hours a day for an entire week to go through the testing with him Bamm Thursday, he gets released to come do treatment in the hospital where my wife works and we life. Find out that night that's it is stage 4 inoperable. He asks if he can come down and stay a day, sure......and here the real kicker. On TV a warning Paradice California is being evacuated! Where my wife works where the treatment was to be. 20 minutes later my kid daughter is at my house and my wife and her jump in the car to paradise and grab cat and some stuff, FUCK, there to be right back. 3 hours later I realize the stuck in the middle of the paradise blaze. I lose power and cell services! No one saying evacuate magalia where we live, but 3 hour of waiting, I realize were fucked. I grab one computer. My dog 2 hand fills of clothes a few stupid shit and jump in truck. At this time I'm in line with a direction away from where my mife went. 5hours later I make it the 13 Mile's to chico and call wife on a stranger's phone, ok where all ok, about 2 more hours apart. We spend night in my truck behind all the first responders, and the start getting news. Paradise California is a complete loss, so is lower magalia where we live. I'm homeless and jobless and so is my daughter and all my friends. What the fuck just happened. Fastest moving wildfire in California in history, moving 80 football fields a minute. We literally have nothing. Nothing. It's hard, because we had everything, life was perfect. Dont blink gamers / friends. Hold on to what and whom you love. Dont let go!

  9. I'm calling it now: the next Vermintide title will be an Epic Games Store exclusive.

  10. I did this last year, I feel like this year they supposedly trimmed the categories and I think it still managed to be longer. It was mostly just Brad jizzing over how he role-played Arthur in RDR2 and pleading his case why it should win 3 different categories. Despite that I thought it was weird that when they got to GOTY and...

  13. So I recently finished Zombi, the PS4 port of ZombiU, twice in a row because it's a fucking great and fun mid-tier game and felt like I should recommend this to fans of Survival Horror titles here because it seems to have gone all but unnoticed. Maybe it's because I didn't have a WiiU and didn't pay attention but...whatever. It's currently on sale for $8.99 and very much worth it. A bit janky and flawed here and there but atmosphere and gameplay-wise, this is one of the best Horror games I've played in quite some time. Apparently the PS4 version isn't as cool as the OG WiiU version with the obvious lack of a second screen which used to function as the map and inventory system but since I never had the pleasure of playing it, I didn't miss it. It kind of reminds me of Condemned with less finicky controls, the addition of firearms and great level design. There are many unique little touches, creativity and ambition to be found here. It is slightly held back by its budget and more on the short side (although first run did take me 12 hours approximately), especially graphics-wise. One unique mechanic it has going that I should point out is the way death works. The game revolves around a safe house in the London subway system and you play as a random survivor dropped into the middle of an apocalyptic scenario. A little info card, like a driver license screenshot kind of, is provided for some basic details of your current character. If you're killed, that's it for that character and "you" wake up back at the safe house as a new survivor/person entirely without any of your collected gear. It's up to you to make it back to the now-dead survivor you had previously played and pick all your shit up again. By this time they may have turned into a zombie, or not, and you may have to kill your previous self first. It creates a really tense attachment to your "life" somehow, which I was surprised by. You're quite fragile and various zombie types, environmental hazards and you yourself with molotovs etc. can get really dangerous quickly and while not incredibly difficult, it's no walk in the park either. Resources are on the scarce side and each bullet counts in good Survival Horror tradition. The ugly is mainly on the technical side as the game did freeze on me three times during my initial playthrough and saves are manual at the safehouse only. Some janky-ass bugs happen like not being able to pick up an item on a stair incline and typical mid-tier type nonsense like that but gladly the core mechanics are quite tight and work as intended albeit a bit stiffly. There are hardly any cutscenes at all and story is mainly told via documents strewn throughout the world and environmental clues and it's actually quite cool and highly atmospheric. Anyway, its reception seems to have been lukewarm but I personally think it's a truly great and unique, if slightly flawed, game that I can't help think was a bit misunderstood. The marketing I do remember paints it more as an Action title, especially considering it's first person and yeah...it's not.
  14. I started Assassin's Creed Odyssey today and was immediately annoyed to find it does level scaling. Rather than pursue one of the very early on quests, I thought: "I'll finish up these side quests first so I can go in a level above." Nope. To my surprise the quest auto leveled to match my level after completing the side quests. After some googling, apparently this happens everywhere, including the mercenaries systems which I haven't gotten into much having just started. And worse, because equipment has levels, the auto-leveling means that by leveling up, you may have just made a quest harder, because your equipment is still behind a level. What asshole thought this was a good idea? I can maybe understand a weak leveling so that you can never be so far above that it's just silly, but making it lower-bound by your own level is colossally stupid design. Apparently they will be releasing a feature at some point to turn it off, and that can't come soon enough. /rant

  16. Japan has made game save editors and console modding services illegal. The punishment for breaking this law is pretty severe too, as perpetrators are liable up to a 5 million yen fine (approximately $46,000 USD or £36,000 GBP), five years of prison time, or both. And you guys wonder why I say that two weren't nearly enough.
  17. Former Hearthstone director Ben Brode and a group of his colleagues left Blizzard last year, and although they yet haven’t announced what they’re making next, today they dropped some big news: It’s a Marvel game.
