      Good news: Valve got Scream Fortress out on time. Bad news: Valve got Scream Fortress 2016 out on time.

        Tell that to the TF Team. Valve screws them over more than any other part of their company except maybe the HL3 dev team. At this point, the TF Team is basically just the janitor, a potted plant and the team baby, Team Crabwalk Rocketjump Fortress.

      Look at that. Valve managed to get out both the Pyro Update and Scream Fortress this month. Good job, Valve!

      Just watched Yahtzee's A Hat in Time review. HOLY CRAP YAHTZEE LIKED SOMETHING.

        Defer to the first sentence of my post. Yahtzee has given a fair amount of praise to various games he’s reviewed over the years. Wolfenstein: The New Order, Papers Please, Hotline Miami, Minecraft, Spec Ops: The Line, Portal, Psychonauts, are good examples of such.

        And if you want a completely positive review from Yahtzee, check out the Portal segment in his review of the Orange Box. He had no criticisms to dish out against Portal. To add to @TheAdversary 's list, there's also Dark Souls, Doom, Persona 5, Undertale, The Witcher 3, Majora's Mask, Stardew Valley X-COM EU, Deus Ex and I'd be remiss not to add, Silent Hill 2.

      Can we all agree that Pokemon that evolve by trade suck? I just want to evolve my Kadabra, but I don't know anybody who has R/S/E & a GBA.

        Now, IIRC, if you don't want to socialize, there is the GTS, but that only works for Gen VI and VII at the moment because the DS and Wii no longer have their gameplay servers (thanks, Gamespy.)

      Doom on Switch is confirmed to run at 30fps. I'm honestly surprised it runs that well.

        Doom, IIRC, wouldn't run at 30fps at all on the 7th generation of consoles. It's really impressive that the Switch is running modern games so well. Nintendo has never been one for massive performance.

        Switch is at the level of the PS4 about except in a handheld form. Just a cunt hair off really.
        Oct 22, 2017
      4. Ben Soto
        Ben Soto
        Yeah... No. Doom was aiming for 60fps on the PS4. The devs have even said that the port is hard because the Switch is weaker than the other consoles.

        The locking joints might have to do with a lack of prep workouts/proper hydration. I've been doing a lot of running lately (I hate running more than anything, but I need to prep for my PRT), and have had to spend the previous day staying hydrated/eating healthy, as well as a 5-10 minute warm-up so I can handle running more than 2 or 3 miles.

        Like A721402 said, your immune system is bolstered by a healthy lifestyle.

        You also might be performing anaerobic workouts, which are not good for someone who's sick. Sticking to a slower pace and building in intensity when nearing the end of your workout is a much better way to keep active than just pushing yourself immediately.

        Ah the common cold, it is one of our longest enemies, a pitched battle of the ages, time and time again it comes for us, time and time again we beat it back! Well, one of the hundreds of strains, from several families

        There is little love among the competing life forms on this planet

      For all the strife within the Pokemon fanbase, can we just agree on one thing? Wooper and Quagsire are the best. Everyone else is wrong.

        Wobbuffet is the best :D
        It was so OP that people were banned from using Wobbuffett in official tournaments in three different generations of games.

        Yeah, but Wooper can use Ice Punch without any hands. Checkmate.

        Shroomish can learn Wake Up slap, Drain Punch, Focus Punch and has no hands either.
        Aron, Rhyhorn, Alakazam, Cyndaquil, Turtwig, etc. can use Iron Tail without having tails. :P
        Pokemons that can use moves when they don't have the parts necessary for them are common, so Wooper is just like many other pokemons. :P

        I hope the Ultramegalopolis lives up to it's name and it's an actual explorable city space instead of just the Ultra Recon Squad base. I feel like we still have some URS members to discover.

        When I was talking about about S/M's length, I was referring to the main story. Game Freak is telling us to except a 30 to 60 hour story.

        I haven't played since Gen V, and I don't have very good memories of Gen V, so if it was introduced after Black/White, I've got no clue.

        In Gen5 they have an Ace Trainer that gives you cryptic hints of what your IVs are, in Gen 6 the Super training screen showed EV allocation and the Ace Trainer hints were less cryptic, now in Gen7 you press Y on the summary screen and it shows you your EVs and after beating the game and hatching 20 eggs an NPC gives you a feature to directly check your Pokemon's IVs from the PC.

        Oh. That's pretty cool. So now we just need a better difficulty select than Black 2/White 2 and we should be good.

        Fallout 2 is still a good game/RPG, and for good reasons. It's not a worthy sequel to Fallout 1 for good reasons, too, but I wouldn't say it's OUTRIGHT bad sequel.

        So don't play it. The whole point is to catch them all and the one's caught on an emulator don't count so it's a waste of time.

        Here is how you steamroll Sapphire, Choose Mudkip so you can one shot all of Roxanne's pokemon, catch a sableye in Dewford and laugh at Brawly's inability to cause it any damage, evolve Mudkip and steamroll Wattson, then Flanery, teach your Marshtomp protect and steamroll Norman by abusing truant, then steam roll Liza and Tate with Marshtomp, catch some electric type in New Mauville and steamroll Wallace.

      What's the general opinion of the Shoddycast Storyteller videos? I think they're pretty decent, but they consider F3 canon, so I give it 0/5

    HOW I RANK THE SERIES
    Fallout: New Vegas (9.5/10) > Fallout (7.5/10) = Fallout 4 (7.5/10) > Fallout 2 (3.5/10) > Fallout 3 (3.0/10)]

    NOW PLAYING
    Why the hell can't I finish a game? No, seriously. I jump between games like a methhead on crack.
