Hi there faithful readers! Steven here with some useless updates you’ve all been dying for! I have quite a few articles planned for the next few days [Editor’s note: about bloody time!], weeks or months, whatever comes first. Thought I’d let you know what’s going on, and what has been catching my attention lately since Jarrod’s back into his two-sentence news report mood, and everyone else seems to have fled the planet! Anyhow, here’s what I have in store for you guys (lucky bastards!). (Note to the editor, feel free to edit the shit out of my articles so they’re actually readable)[With language like that, it shouldn’t be a problem].
Since there’s been tons of Superman news lately, what with all the talk about the movie and whatnot, I figured it would be a good idea to bring back the fan-favourite Comic Book Reviews. A new episode should actually hit the site later today or tomorrow for the three of you curious cats out there. I plan to do weekly runs this month totally devoted to the Man of Tomorrow! [I’ve always wondered, how can he be the Man of Tomorrow when tomorrow never comes? Wouldn’t that just make him the Man of Today?]
I recently played through 2010’s sleeper hit Enslaved, and have a few thoughts I’d like to share. [Apparently just not about the actual game] I actually have plenty to say about that game, as well as the state of gaming in general that I will relate too in another article. I’ve been meaning to discuss achievements/trophies for a while now. [Due to laziness…] Everyone knows how addicted I’ve become to those over the years, but now I’m starting to think they’re more of a curse than anything. Look forward to that. [We will!] Also, I really miss the ol’ days of gaming, where beating a game was actually an accomplishment. The last game I bought that I knew I probably wouldn’t be able to complete was Ninja Gaiden Black. Nowadays, videogames are mostly pushovers; I’ll talk about the pro’s and con’s and much more. With Team Ninja recently announcing that the next Ninja Gaiden would be more user friendly, the future isn’t looking bright for hardcore gamers looking for a single-player challenge.
Lastly, ProjectCOE sucks! Where’s all the Minecraft love? [Mal and I had a good conversation you completely ignored damn you!] I don’t recall one single mention of the game anywhere besides the comments section. Have we all been living under a rock? Seriously, I’ve only just discovered this gem a few weeks ago. Still, I never game on my PC. Never! So, I should be the last person in the world to be enjoying a game like this, but I am….. more than anything. That simple fact alone should make you consider trying this game out. It might not look like much, but if you’ve ever liked sim games like Animal Crossing or The Sims (or Roller Coaster Tycoon, the list goes on) you’ll love this! Did you ever mess around with Lego blocks when you were a kid? If so, this game is for you. It’s only $15 for the beta, which includes the full game once it’s released. Honestly it’s a steal. I don’t know if there’s an audience for this kind of game here, but expect some articles in the future. I’d like to take you all on a virtual tour of the “village” Mal [Marcus, remember him? He wrote a stunning one article I believe. Yes my friends, the man has talent! Jokes aside, pressure him to write something else] and I created. It could prove quite entertaining although I lack the proper equipment to produce such videos. [It’s a PC game, you don’t need ‘equipment’ to record video] Minecraft is a definitive contender for GOTY when the full game sees the light of day. With that said, Steven out. [Best article evar!]
