  1. Other podcasts

    Yeah, once they took Cocktail Time off iTunes there was pretty much no reason to subscribe anymore. Joseph was my favorite part of 4pp. For some reason his drunken shenanigans really cracked me up.
  2. Recently completed video games

    Believe it or not, it wasn't the uninteresting characters and missions that turned me off of GTA IV. It was the fact that they abandoned much of the playfully juvenile humor from the earlier titles for a darker realistic tone that just didn't seem to mesh well with the gameplay. This resulted in a much less charming and entertaining game for me, but I know many people who love the series purely based on the gameplay and couldn't care less about characters or tone.
  3. Recently completed video games

    I recently completed GTA San Andreas for the first time and I gotta admit that I liked it more than I thought I would. The characters were all surprisingly likable and I especially enjoyed CJ, he has so much more personality than boring-ass Niko. I also thought the mission variety was superior to GTA IV, with less missions being to just shoot the bad guys, however the checkpoint system was just as unforgiving. The only real complaints I had with the game were control issues since I was playing on IPad, but even then it played surprisingly well (flying planes was extremely frustrating though, particularly the military jet).
  4. Other podcasts

    I used to listen to 4PP religiously, but ever since the latest console generation came out, news has been slow (also Brad started to get annoying). I do still listen to the Co-Optional podcast occasionally.
  5. Feminism

    Agreed. Sometimes I wonder when people started thinking that if your a feminist, you don't give a shit about anyone but women.
  6. I LOVE Left 4 Dead 2, so if anyone is interested in playing with me, feel free to send me a message. I also like to play Insurgency and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.
  7. PSN ID exchange

    Hello, my PSN username is SuperMikeyMike44 (PS3). I mostly play single-player games on my PS3, but I will occasionally play Splinter Cell Blaacklist or the Last of Us competitively. My most played multiplayer game is Dark Souls 2 right now, so if anyone wants to challenge me or play some jolly ol' co-op just send me a message over PSN, my SL is around 230.
  8. Hatred: The Most Despicable Game of All Time?

    While I feel that the whole idea of this game is extremely distasteful, I do think they should have the right to make and sell it (though I certainly won't be buying it). My main problems with this game stem not from the fact that it forces you to engage in a killing spree of the innocent, but because it's a blatant attempt to sell a game based purely on shock value. This is just speculation, but it appears from the trailer that there is a huge emphasis on stylistic violence and cinematic fatalities, rather than gameplay features or an original story. Not only does the main aspect of the gameplay look extremely easy (killing enemies that have no means or intention of defending themselves), but there was no mention of any character motivations besides wanting to kill as many people as possible and die in the process. I think this makes for a very boring game that seems more like it should be on a flash game website rather than being sold for cash. Now some of you may say “but there are many great games where you play as a villain, just look at GTA or Saint's Row 2!” While I do agree that playing as a villain can be fun, I think this game lacks something that most of those games do: a relatable or empathetic character. I'm not saying the protaganist should be remorseful or reluctant but I think in order to justify playing as such a scumbag there should be some context as to why he is like he is so you could possibly put yourself in his shoes. In this game the protaganist is simply painted as a deranged psycho killer, meaning it would be very difficult to empathize or relate to this character unless you have murderous tendencies yourself, and I just don't think most gamers do. The reason a game like Super Mario Bros. can have such a simple yet effective story is because Mario is setting out to do something that most people consider to be a very noble act and all of the hardships he faces along the way just reinforce the point that he really believes in what he's doing. This is something a lot of people, including myself, can relate to: dedication to a cause you believe in, that is why most games tend to have a somewhat heroic protaganist. Without this driving aspect of the story, the game may end up feeling pointless or meaningless, unless the gameplay makes up for it by sheer fun factor (like GTA or Saint's Row), however from the looks of it, this game does not seem to accomplish that. TL;DR: I think this game looks terrible.
  9. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hi all! I joined these forums because they appear to have an active community of gamers who are willing to engage in meaningful discussions about video games. I am eager to participate and I hope I can positively contribute to the great discussions on this site, as well as start some myself once I get enough posts in.
