Pro tip: Never record Painkiller, just recorded the final boss with OBS, it didn't record the cutscene, switched to fraps, dropped to single digit frames in the cutscene, switched to nvidia share, cutscene was glitched out. Then Arcsoft crash on compress.

 
 

Hmm I wonder what song I'll pick for #musictoid... it's got to be something from Valkyrie Profile 2. This is the music that plays in the underwater caverns of Dragonscrypt. Valkyrie Profile 2's soundtrack is absolutely gorgeous.

 
 

Is there a game's OST you really like... but the game is a pile of shit?

 
 

If you think that growth in videogames can equate to a contest then you are seriously delusional. Stop wasting time on growth if you only seek to surpass others, it is a waste of time and effort. Playing more than someone else doesn't make you better.

 
 

If I could be Geoff Keighley for a day, I'd sign a sponsorship deal with Dr Pepper.

 
 

I hate to say I told you so... but I was right. Getting rid of Greenlight was a stupid idea and accomplished absolutely nothing. I rest my case.

 
 

And finally we can safely say that Warcraft lore has finally been laid to rest. With Kiljaeden gone, there is nothing left in the story... except Sargeras but surely they won't kill him... surely. Oh wait, this is World Of Shitcraft we're talking about

 
 

Here's a code for Alan Wake's American Nightmare on GOG, first come first served: CCQ3D89F66F58E8FED If you claim the code, let me know, also let me know if the code doesn't work.

 
 
 

What is your opinion on retro game collecting? here's a biased video by Silent Rob to help you decide. I personally think that collecting as a whole is stupid but owning physical copies of games you like is cool. I only collect games which I really enjoy.

 
 

Apparrently Yooka Laylee sucks, that's yet another Kickstarter game that failed, what a shame. I'm beginning to have less trust in crowdfunded videogame projects.

 
 

I thought OBS was perfect... then I realized it didn't record the FMV's of Painkiller without them freezing. Seriously, I hate recording software. Fraps, Nvidia Share and OBS, fuck all of you.

 
 

Jim Sterling has made up for indirectly fucking over the indie market with this video. Can't exactly give him all the blame but I still feel salty, we lost our greatest weapon against the AAA industry, Steam Greenlight, freedom and liberty is no more.

 
 

So Strafe failed, I guess it didn't have enough souls/demons, plus it didn't have an electrodriver. Because if it did, it would get an 11/10

 
 

7 Japanese RPG's game developers should study... look at which one is at the top. That's right, Valkyrie Profile 2 is the best JRPG so of course it should be the first people study so that they can learn how a true masterpiece is made.


 
 

It would seem i have no choice but to install Ultima Online just for a single screenshot... then I found out that EA are in charge of it. Well fuck me. Thank god it has a free trial.

 
 
 

What would you rather be? Badass Or Epic?

 
 

Just got to this point in Nier Automata. Game Of The Year, definitely!!! 10/10.

 
 

That feeling that you get when you write a blog with over 4000 words and you have no idea how to get the images...

 
 

So I need help. Both Fraps and Nvidia Share are garbage, I need suggestions for a recording software that can record Painkiller smoothly with good sound quality and without cutting out half the recording and pasting the beginning of the recording.

 
 

If I could have any theme song... it would be this

 
 
 

Just realized that I still can't run DOOM on PC with my Graphics card... I give up... seriously. Well at least it will run Bannerlord... I hate what gaming has become.

 
 

I feel the powah!!! My Pc just got pimped out with this new I5 6500

 
 

Just finished streaming Nier Automata, pretty long one though so you'll want to bring popcorn.

 
 

Well I finally gave in and got Nier Automata on PS4... I got it from PS store so I paid more than I should have paid for it but fuck it, I can't use my PC so I might as well treat myself to a new game instead and I don't want to wait for a physical copy.

 
 

Looks like my CPU is on its last legs... damn if only I knew stuff about computers...

 
 

What is the worst console generation? My top 3: #1 Seventh (2007 - 2014) #2 Eighth (so far) (2014 - ???) #3 First (1972 - 1976)

 
 

What is the best console generation? My top 3: #1 Sixth - (2001 - 2007) #2 Fourth - (1991 - 1997) #3 Fifth - (1997 - 2001)

I will publish blogs on there earlier because it has a better editor (plus I don't have the Destructoid rules to worry about). I will still publish blogs on here though and I probably will post any top 10's exclusively on here, this site is merely a home for all of my blogs so that in case anything happens I can keep writing.

My Bio:

Just an outspoken fan of rpg's and gaming in general who likes to rant about first world gamer problems because there are so many.

My blogs mostly consist of reviews/rants of games of all generations, particularly rpg's. I try to blend my reviews with both facts and opinion so that people can see from my own experiences and decide for themselves. i will also tend to review older titles because i still believe that there are few people out there who haven't played these awesome titles and deserve to give them a chance.

Oh and as for some negative's you might point out, i can't spell for my life and my grammar is terrible. Plus i like to exaggerate my points a little to make things more fun, yet some people are dense enough to take them as fact.

Here is my response to those intelligent enough to point them out:


Heres my review rating system:

Masterpiece (Same as masterful but for overall score, will be based on opinion), of course it won't be perfect in every way but it will be close to perfect, no game is perfect.

Masterful - Perfect in every way (Formerly 9.5+) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)

Exceptional - Goes way beyond expectations (Formerly between 9.1 and 9.4) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)

Excellent - Does what it needs to and provides a first class experience (9.0) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)

Great - Does what it needs to, provides a high class experience (8.5-8.9) (recommended to all fans of the genre)

Good - Does what it needs to and provides a very enjoyable experience (was 8.0 - 8.5) (recommended to all fans of the genre)

Satisfactory - Does what it needs to, provides an experience which is just enough to satisfy the player (Formerly between 7.5 - 7.9) (Reccommended to read the review if unsure)

Decent - Does what it needs to, experience can very depending on the players tastes (Formerly 7.0-7.4) (Recommended to read the review if you plan on picking up the game to see if it's for you)

So-So (Now Mediocre) - Not for everyone, has some issues, may be worth a try if patient enough to cope with it's flaws (Formerly 6.5 - 6.9) (Reccommened to read the review if you're interested in the title)

Flawed - Alot of flaws, difficult to recommend, some may be able to pass them by but will require a lot of patience (Formerly 5.0 - 6.4) (Reccommened to read the review if you're interested in the title)

Awful - (Formerly 4.9 and below) (If you see this, don't pick the game up for this catagory)

Kill It With Fire - (Same as Awful but for overall score, based on opinion which in this case is usually right if you see the game, you know what to do, don't buy this and if you do, get some gasoline and a match)

Lifespan:

Too Long (Legend Of Dragoon lol)

Very Long (Formerly 9.5 - 9.9)

Long (Formerly 9.0 - 9.4)

Quite Long (Formerly 8.0 - 8.9)

Decent Length (Formerly 7.5 - 7.9)

Quite Short (Formerly 6.5 - 7.4)

Very Short (Formerly 6.0 - 6.4)

Too short (Formerly 5.9 or below)
