Computer Destruction



My computer broke this morning. I was gathering my things together to head off to the campus to study, and it fell about a foot and a half or so out of my grip onto the floor. While I thought everything was fine at first, apparently the monitor no longer functions. 

I’m able to use it by connecting a second monitor, but normal operations are going to be greatly disrupted while I find a solution. The good news is I still have my tablet, and I can still use my PC on a very limited basis, so TCR should continue. Although I may have to resort to making TCR on my tablet which would mean essentially I would have zero access to editing. 

So there is going to be somewhat of a transitional period here while I get everything together in the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving!

Taking the week of Thanksgiving off of TCR

I'm taking a week off doing TCR for Thanksgiving. Trying to finish my week's school work as well as having family come in from out of town is going to make getting up even a half episode extremely difficult.

This is the first week I have missed since TCR returned three months ago. I can assure you that when things settle down again, I'll be right back making more episodes. In the mean time, I'll try and get some stuff up on this blog to keep things active.

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

Joel from Vinesauce Breaks Alien Isolation

I had high hopes for Alien Isolation. After the mess that was Colonial Marines, it looked like this was going to be the game that put the Alien series back on the map. With all the stuff in the news lately about how mainstream reviews are bought and paid for by game developers, I was a little weary about all the high scores this game has gotten. While the game still looks cool, this latest video from Vinesauce's Joel confirmed my suspicions.


The game still looks cool, but there is no way that's a 9/10 game.

Excitebike Challenge on NES

The Pink Guy Album Review (Free Music Discussion)



The Pink Guy album is the musical brain child of Japanese-Australian YouTuber/Rapper most people know as Filthy Frank. Frank, who has been identified by one YouTuber as “George Miller”, relies on a large cast of characters, all portrayed by Frank/George. Normally several characters played by the same person on YouTube will come across as somewhat sad or lame. (Most people rely on this when there simply isn’t anyone else willing to appear on the internet with them.) Frank however, pulls it off with great madness and sometimes brilliance.

This album is a 38 song anthology of every musical gag that has appeared on the Filthy Frank show up until its release. The lyrics are clever and the hooks are mostly pretty catchy although I wouldn’t want to be caught in public humming “peanut butter on my balls, let the dog lick it.” The styles also vary between ukulele driven pop singing and hip hop. 

On the down side, some of the

ZP Discusses Daikatana

Let me be the first to say that Yahtzee ain't what he used to be. My hat goes off to him for continuing to create videos on a weekly basis for this long, but part of me only thinks that's possible because you don't see his fedora during his cartoons.

Anyway, a month or so ago Yahtzee featured Daikatana on his show "Zero Punctuation" making it the first episode in a long time that I found enjoyable. This is an accurate representation of an era in video games that I am very fond of. Try to enjoy it if you can.



In an unrelated note, spell check insists on correcting "Daikatana" to "Databank".

A Game by any Other Name: Assessing the Conflict in Discourse



This feature from the youtuber Action Points, describes the status of games like Gone Home, The Stanley Parable, and Dear Esther. I thought this was important because in addition, he highlights the move to silence this idea by the toxic element of our goofy games news media.

If you are interested in hearing more about the game or non game debate, Jim Sterling made a video about the contrary position. Both gentlemen made very good points.

Intel pulls ads from Gamasutra. Sites "shifts in editorial positioning"

So it looks like corruption in journalism isn't a good thing after all. Here we see one of the sites involved with a huge secret email list used for determining what to publish and what not to publish suffering some consequences of their corrupt actions. Feels good man. Hopefully this is the first domino in a chain of consequences being dealt out to all those involved.

The next thing I would like to see is some heads rolling. People on the corruption list need to be replaced in order for healing in this industry to begin. Anyway, this is a huge victory for gamers who have been taking the business end of this for a long time.

This month's essay. DANCETRON.
   

An essay on Dancetron

The subject of Dancetron has been covered intensively by the world press over the past decade. Advancments in Dancetron can be linked to many areas. Cited by many as the single most important influence on post modern micro eco compartmentalism, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. Often it is seen as both a help and a hinderence to those most reliant on technology, who just don't like that sort of thing. With the primary aim of demonstrating my considerable intellect I will now demonstrate the complexity of the many

The desert scene in Casino, as performed by Bert and Ernie.



Just something I wanted to share.

This was the most active month on this website ever.

     And so August 2014 comes to a close and so closes the most active month in the history of this website. Previously the title was held by October 2011 with 20 posts. That was the month that Indie Royale first debuted its first bundle. The rest of that month consisted of a weekly indie roundup series which has since been pulled down, my stint into producing my own MS Paint comic, and also poking fun at Ozark Soundscapes "I got this" video, which is still up by the way.

     Thanks so much for continuing to derp around with me despite all the nonsense that goes on here. It has been a wonderful five years.

Wing Commander III - Free on Origin right now.

Despite being generally not well liked by the gaming public, EA is still attempting to get people to use it's platform 'Origin'. They have been giving out games free for people to add to their origin accounts lately. So far, some past games have been Peggle, Sims 2, and Plants vs Zombies.

Now they are giving away the epic space adventure Wing Comander III. This comes complete with cut scenes of Mark Hamill talking to giant cat puppets, and some of the finest space sim combat. Even though Origin is a derp and a half, this is a good game worthy of bothering. Grab Origin and get it while you can.

Original Shogun: Total War is $1.24 on GamersGate this Weekend!

GamersGate is having a Total War weekend sale this weekend. Most of the games for sale in that series are Steam unlocks, but I noticed this little gem and I didn't want it to get swept under the rug. The original Total War is included in the sale and it's 1.24!

Note that this version is not a Steam unlock. It's downloaded and installed directly from GamersGate and it uses the SecuROM DRM. If you are still interested, here is the link. Enjoy!

TCR Short Discussion: GOG Game Removals & Changes

So GOG.com has a brand new look. They have added movies for sale, and they are removing 35 games. Here is a short discussion on the topic from TCR.


Pitching 5 Nights at Freddy's Sequels

There is a thread on the 5NaF Steam forums about sequel ideas. A great deal of them consisted of X
Nights at Y's. Where X is a number and Y is an everyday male name. My idea was drastically different gameplay. I thought I would put it here for your entertainment. This is what I posted:

"You play the same character. You are now an animatronic bear monster. Players can assume the story takes place as if the player from the first game eventually lost and was stuffed into the golden bear suit.

The goal of the game is to kill the new security guard.

Multiplayer stealth. Avoid cameras/traps. The pizza place has since expanded it's...

Asalieri Discusses Zoe Quinn & Depression Quest

Asalieri isn't affiliated with this website, however I wanted to share his thoughts on Depression Quest and the hotly discussed Zoe Quinn. Maximum lolz.



If you don't know why Zoe Quinn is being discussed so much lately, here is a video from ReviewTechUSA that explains everything minus the filter of big name websites attempting to silence recent events.

My little Ouya Gridiron Thunder Contest Entry

The Ouya forums recently posted a contest for a free copy of Gridiron Thunder, (a five dollar game.) In order to enter the contest you had to do something that showed some kind of team like spirit for the console within the thread on the forums. Most people described things they like to do with their Ouya's. I made this 23 second clip using the old Monday Night Football theme.

Here it is for your entertainment.

Castle Wolfenstein (MS-DOS)



This is Castle Wolfenstein. Originally for the Apple, this is the DOS port. Actually for an early DOS game, this is really good. Take a look.

Discussing Five Nights at Freddy's



Five Nights at Freddy’s is a new horror game from Scott Cawthon which has become very popular in a very short period of time. The player sits in a security booth at a children’s themed restaurant at night. All through the night animatronic mascots roam the hallways and at times, come to kill the player. The only controls the player has to defend himself are a couple of doors on either side, lights to light up outside the doors, and a few security cameras. Power is limited so the players different tools can only be used for a very very short period of time.

To me, the gameplay boils down to sitting in a room, waiting for death and hoping you...
