  1. Idle Thumbs 158: P is for Podcast

    Dude... Chris. Play Perfect Dark Zero if you haven't. Co-op. It's an old school shooter, and the best thing I remember from it is on one mission, sitting next to my brother, we carefully took out two lookouts in two different towers at the exact same time. And not because the game required it, or even suggested it. It's because they'd notice if the other was dead and hit the alarm, and then there was too many enemies. So we just totally set up the dual lookout snipe simultaneously because it was the thing to do.

    Run and hide. Curl up in a ball and pretend everything is good, because you're going to spend a long fucking time looking for a place.

    Christ you people. Ya'll losers give up arguments way too easily, and here I thought there was another good one going
  4. There wasn't a thread about... VR Games. And I'm figuring there probably isn't going to be separate VR game threads until there's enough units out in general. So here's a catch all for any VR only game, which is probably some little indie experimental thing. To get things started: Normally, watching this sort of gameplay would be utter nonsense if it were a typical gamepad/screen game. But just making it VR with those controllers suddenly makes the whole thing way more hilarious. "Gah smash everything, fuck this record! Fuck this glass! Fuck everything on this shelf!" Like Surgeon Simulator but you don't even need the surgery context. Which is a reason I think VR and these kind of controllers can take off.

    See that's what I'm saying. Pacific Rim DOESN'T have characters. I found the two leads about as totally worthless as Godzilla's vaguely human shaped goo. I wanted them to shut the hell up so the giant robots punching stuff could come back, just like I wanted the "humans" (Heisenberg aside...) in Godzilla to shut the hell up so the giant monsters wrecking stuff could come back.

    The plot is kind of the same, and so are the reasons people watch these movies. "Boffin yells about giant alien/monster/thing that will destroy the earth." then "giant monster/alien/whatever" comes and destroys the earth, then "generic handsome dude goes to try and stop giant monster from destroying the earth" with the real thing people are actually watching it all for is "Ultra gratuitous destruction porn from some crazy sci-fantasy monster thing" and hopefully some stupid one liners (really the kind of main thing Godzilla was lacking here). So I personally consider them pretty much the same genre, along with Michael Bay's Transformers (which is missing the boffin but what do you expect from Michael Bay). Point is "sci-fantasy montster thing wrecks world, it looks cool and gets defeated" is the entire plot of all these movies, and people seem to love them. I grant you it's a "loose" genre, but I'd still say it's more specific than just "action movie" or something. Besides, I'd take another look at ID4. It's basically a better Pacific Rim because unlike Pacific Rim it has Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum with enough cheesy charm for two movies put together, let alone one. While PR is just the blond dude looking stupid while his would be girlfriend also fails at acting.

    Were those people in a looney bin, and also drunk? Regardless, see I found Pacific Rim just as dumb as Godzilla, but thought the ending was just a stupid wash while Godzilla at least had a right and proper finale type ending. Ohwell, regardless of opinion it is a fact that none of these really dumb disaster/monster/thing movies will ever stand up to the king of the genre :Independence Day, winner in terms of awesomeness!
  8. Is anyone else strangely excited for the new Wolfenstein game?

    Crap. It's got to get better right? Places I generally sort of trust for reviews seem to like it.
  9. Recently completed video games

    Hey that's right, Hack n Slash should be available soon.
  10. Recently completed video games

    I've now found "intended reads" annoying in creative works. Made the mistake that what the author "really" intended matters early in college, but now I've found its more fun to, if you even have one as a creator or not, just let people make up their own minds about it. And even argue about it among themselves. So maybe the arguing is more fun than getting to a definitive conclusion. As for myself, I just sort of looked at The Stanley Parable, said "oh I see what you did there" then kind of went through it a few times because heck, I already had it. Speaking of completed games, someone tell me if Watching Dogs is good next week. I'll pick up the latest iteration of "Shoot Dem Nazis" at some point later on in a steam sale, just to shoot dem Nazis, but right now I don't have a Wii-U (and am not getting one) so Mario Kart 8 isn't being played, and nothing else seems to be on the horizon till October. (Transistor is nigh out I know, but Bastion and etc. just aren't my type of game.)

    Oh c'mon. Ok the humans are stupid as crap. But I bet the audience cheered when It definitely wasn't the movie I wanted based on the trailers, but it can still be fun if you just accept it as being stupid. Like, cheesy bad but the movie kinda knows it stupid.
  12. DOTA 2

    This is actually a big part of the reason I quit Dota 2, it felt like I just had to deal with assholes every other game in one way or another. In Heroes of the Storm, which I'm playing like 2 matches a day, there's basically no assholery whatsoever! There's basically not match quitting, almost no AFK's, no raging or anything. It's also a game that I don't feel really bad when losing in, it's a really really refreshing experience to just have fun with one of these things instead of everything driving towards getting super competitive.
  13. The E3 Retrospectapalooza

    Nintendo will not be year of anything. It will be a millennia, the millennia of Waluigi. Tausendjährigen Reich von Waluigi, Heil Heil Heil! Oh and you guys are totally right! Sony will have this huge indie thing where indie devs get to be onstage for like 1 minute and say "my game is coming to the PS4!" Games that are "coming to the PS4!" Firewatch, Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Divinity: Original Sin, The Forest, A Story About My Uncle. Other triple A games showing up: Shadow of Mordor, Arkham Knight (World Exlusive!!! Pew pew pew). Oddly enough exactly no games besides Nintendo's will actually be announced E3, as they will all have been announced before but next to nothing shown or talked about until E3/
  14. The threat of Big Dog

    US Navy wants robots with "morals" Isn't this how things go wrong half the time? "Must maintain morality. Most immoral creatures on planet: Humans. Must destroy all humans to save planet."

    You don't understand. Denzel Washington is all black people, and all black people are Denzel Washington.
