I dunno, man, some reviews say the microtransaction stuff is easy to skip. And I've done all sorts of stupid grinding over the years for a "true ending." Hell, sometimes a true ending was just a different picture at the end. Luckily, playing Mordor was so much fun that I have no problem playing more.

My understanding is that you can do everything without spending more money. If I can get 50 hours out of fun for $60 (minus Prime savings), then that's a heck of a worthwhile purchase to me.

Read an Arkham Asylum to Arkham City comparison. If that's the case, it'll lose focus but gain a ton of stuff. Hopefully that stuff is awesome.

The DLC is fantastic and highly recommended. Some of the coolest stuff in the game, to be honest.

It certainly looks amazing, I just hope the difficulty comes from clever design and not just nice stuff standing around with a ton of hit points. And if it's as hard as people say, then at the very least it needs to feel great.

I've honestly skipped out on any video aside from snippets at a press conference or something. I love Contra and hope this can warm my heart like Hard Corps: Uprising did most recently.

I use them to avoid losing huge chunks of progress, or for a good stopping point if I need to do something else.

Generally, if I get to a new world or something, I'll save it. Won't save during a level most of the time. I guess if you equate it to Sonic's structure, I'll save at the beginning of a new zone but not at the beginning of each act.

In short, I don't want to start games all over so save states are handy. Otherwise, I might not even come back to the game because there's so much else out there.

Blood, Sweat, and Pixels by a Kotaku guy is fantastic. About the making of 10 different video games, with some surprisingly varied stories.

It was nonsense when I first saw it. But watching it a couple years ago was... well, kind of scary to see much sense it actually made.

Can't wait to replay ZOE 2 and see what I missed the first time!

This kinda just makes me bummed Almost Human never took off. That was a great show.

Indeed, it was.

Although I've been skipping a lot more stuff, the content's still solid and the West video hire will have them operating at full capacity (hopefully soon). I like everyone on the crew, and the E3 shows always convince me to be a premium member for yet another year. I know those are free videos, but Jeff is such an amazing host that I just wanna support his efforts some more.

I think this qualifies as being a Juggalo, yes.
