    Hardware readily goes downhill once the sleazy neighbor plot starts and the evil android resurrects itself. The dramatic setup is ok, but the slasher flick that follows is trash. Some of the shots...

    LMAO. My suggestion was a tongue-in-cheek homework assignment, not a general recommendation.

    You definitely missed something, though I don't know what. It sounds like the script and direction are just not to your tastes, or else the genre itself, or that their interpretation just didn't...

    That was Albert Brooks.

    You seem to be missing the cultural touchstones of 80's Americana B-movie crime noir excess, which the entire film reflects. For example, the foil characters being...

    I picked up BF4 complete for $30 over the holidays. It's an ok BF3 rehash, but is also extremely symptomatic of all the issues I have with the BF series direction these days: ugly color filter (red...

    Dirty Bomb is essentially a new Enemy Territory game, but it feels like a step backward from ETQW and Brink. It's focused but somewhat stripped-down. I'm not a fan of the unlocking, 3-characters...

    No, they are doing that because splitting a multiplayer community is almost universally a bad idea.

    You are suggesting people would pay more to continue playing after they fuck up the game...

    Dead Snow 2: Watchable, not as good as the first, very trope-heavy. The Zombie Squad stuff was really dumb. I fell asleep during the big climatic fight. A few good laughs, and the ending is quite...

    I wonder if 2K will learn from this. The game is good, but public perception has been hurt by the DLC pre-order multi-version madness, and Metacritic player scores are around half what they could...

    I had a very rough weekend of solo Dota, but one match stands out.

    I suggested the Void+Skywrath combo, picked Void, and ended up with a team of walking ultimates. Then I swapped for the Jug...

    I'm game. Maybe we can pick up a few more players.

    I suspect the mixed reception reflects the wider potential playerbase (casuals, DLC-phobia, etc) more than Evolve itself.

    Outland is $2.49 on Steam. Think Ikaruga as a platformer, developed by Housemarque (who made Super Stardust HD). The PC port came out last September to good reviews.

    I see also that Cities:...

    Vindictus may have a decent action game buried behind all the talky menus and unlock grinding, but I am not interested in slogging though enough of this to reach it. I played 5h of the promo weekend...

    Evolve pre-orders are all 25% off on the GreenManGaming VIP page (works for anyone with an account, you just have to be signed in), so the three versions are $45, $60, and $75.

    The Thieves is a watchable fun S.Korean heist flick (think Ocean's 11 with an Asian ensemble). The long action sequence goes a bit too far past plausibility, some characters are a bit too...

    @Helio - well, now I want to play Startopia again, and whats worse, I want a Startopia Cities game. Curse you!

    Skylines looks like the best simulation-oriented management game I've seen in ages.

    The Fall, season 2. I liked some elements of it, and would say it's watchable and above average, but not enough to recommend. Half the time is spent on tone and mood, and the killer's perspective,...
