    @kanerobot: oh please, I can moan about one "mega corporation" without necessarily supporting another. Anyone who behaves like a dick deserves criticism, even if only in the form of some asinine comm...

    So Microsoft is basically spending money to stop some Playstation owning kids getting the game they want for Christmas? Nice one, Microsoft. Suck it up and wait 'til next Easter little Jimmy!

    It won't surprise you to learn that there is a wikipedia article about space exposure. There is another one about sudden decompression. I interpret them as saying that you might last 90 seconds (in a ...

    The podcast was great, one of the better ones recently. I hope Samantha can guest again if she's in town, and that other guests do become a regular feature. Not necessarily every week, but often. It's...

    I think the original list has it right. You could put in any 2D Mario game too and it'd be ideal.

    Can you hook it up to an exercise bike and pedal in virtual reality? I bet there'd be a market for that kind of shit.

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Sega Pleases, Enrages Alien Fans With Isolation's Pre-Order DLC [UPDATED]. on the Alien: Isolation board

    Patrick, if pre-order DLC gets better, bigger or more significant than the throwaway junk and cosmetic baubles its been up until now, that will be a change for the worse, not better.

    This is an interesting question. It seems like something a designer wouldn't even think of changing - I don't think I would have.

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Godzilla, Wolfenstein, and Our Obsession With the Same Stories. on the Wolfenstein: The New Order board

    Godzilla and Wolfenstein both have a lot of kitschy, retro appeal to them. Being excited to see one return but not the other probably just reflects your own personal affinity to each of them. Another ...

    Why do the characters never shut up? Every second of gameplay there is migraine-inducing, overlapping nonsense dialogue from both fighters. SHUT UP!

    The way the players and their uniforms animate is really impressive. It's still baseball though, so, uh, whatever.

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Worth Playing: 04/25/2014.

    I support you being a bit more discriminating about what you include in these videos, but I wonder if a show called "Not Worth Playing" might not also be entertaining. Perhaps Alex could do that one.
