For the last few weeks, it seems like there have been about four hundred new visual novels on Steam every single day. I have nothing against the genre itself and have enjoyed a couple in my time, but the sheer volume of them on the front page of Steam is starting to get a little overwhelming.
Just beat Shovel Knight. Really good game, but man was it hard some times.
I hope everyone is having a great Christmas! I want to give a shout out to my heavenly father who gave us the best Christmas present ever 2014 years ago. I also want to give a special thanks to all my Secret Santa partners out there: Souledge119, NaiOni, and Elmo 3000, as well as JHawk and BigBossofMoss for organizing them. Merry Christmas everyone!
Just a reminder to whoever got me as the g1 Secret Santa, I posted a pretty extensive suggestion in the comments of the original blog post. http://www.screwattack.com/news/g1-community-secret-santa-2014
Ralph Baer, inventor of the Magnavox Odyssey and thus practically the creator of video games, died two days ago. I hope he knew how much of impact he had on so many lives.
I've been working on a horror-theme blog but it's running long and I probably won't finish it tonight. Look for a late Halloween article some time this weekend. Creepy Pasta fans especially might want to keep their eyes peeled ;-)
Cthulhu Saves the World is only 98 cents on Steam right now. If you like RPGs, this is one of the best investments you'll ever make.
If anyone wants a cool beat 'em up for Steam, check out Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death. It's five dollars regular price, and was only one during the sale.
I just beat VVVVVV (thanks Elmo!) Very fun game indeed.
I liked Nintendo's event. It might be the best one they've had since the Wii U was announced, and it was the definitely the best one of E3 so far. On the other hand, while 2015 looks great for Big N fans, I guess Nintendo owners are screwed for the rest of this year. Also, no big 3DS news at all.
As E3 day one draws to a close, I can honestly say that there has been very little that has me really excited. So far nothing as been bad, per se, but nothing has been especially good, either. The few games we saw that caught my attention had very little revealed about them, and the rest was just same old, same old. Let's see if Nintendo has anything big in store tomorrow.
Sony knows this is a video game conference, right?
MIssed EA's conference, but from what I'm reading, I didn't miss anything.
I know I was just being very critical, but truth be told, I didn't think the X-Bone's press conference was terrible. I didn't think it was good, either. It was very very "meh."
The voice acting of these people in the Division demo is awful.
I have to admit, I didn't even know Dead Rising 3 was out. Apparently its been on shelves since November. I thought the Capcom DLC looks pretty cool and creative, but I can't help feeling that deep down it exists for Capcom to throw a bone to the people who complained that it was too gritty.
