The Gaming Thread....It's Back Edition

Afternoon 'Rons and 'Ettes! Zakn here! I apologize for the absence of the Gaming thread. I've been working a ton, so I neglected working on a post. Neglect no longer!

In our last Thread I brought up the Humble Indie Bundle V. They sold almost 600,000 bundles raising just over 5 million bucks. A portion of that went to a great Charity called Child's Play.

Point you ask? Yes. So i've been playing a grip of Super Meatboy. That's so last year you might say. Agreed. Where I'm going with this is Indie Game: The Movie. A bunch of professional nerds I follow on teh Twitters were raving about it, so I went and paid my 10 bucks (I think it's on Netflix streaming as well) for the DRM free edition. The Movie follows the people that made Super Meatboy, and Phil Fish who made Fez. Everyone has been losing their bowels about Fez, so I was interested. It was neat to see the ups and downs of these dudes as they went through the grinder making and marketing their games.

If you run a small Business, I recommend watching it. Small 2-3 Dude shops versus large companies of 700+ developers


In between Playing Eve and Super Meatboy, I've been terrifying myself with Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

The game is pretty cool because you can't actually fight anything. All you can do is run and hide. Very opposite to where everything else in gaming has been going. Plus there's a sequel coming out soon. Don't know if I'm going to get it. This damn thing is rough enough on my senses. Don't let me discourage you from it, it's an awesome play.

So Eve Stuff.

I made a public chat channel for us. It's AoSHQ It's a troll free zone. Don't care if you are blue or red, Hisec carebear noob or whatever. It's for Morons to chat about stuff in game. Save the troll stuff for Kugu or the Eve-O forums. Channel is for light banter and chat about all things Moron.

My bud on Twitter Koopy was asking me about Eve. Where we play etc. Eve is a one shard game. Everything that happens on Eve affects everyone else. Unlike other MMO's there aren't different Servers. Goons messing around with the faction warfare LP system jacked with everyone else that does FW. Man, did that story blow up lol.

Few more things and then it's your thread. Last thread I posted a vid from a fight between Test/PL vs Nuli down in Delve. (Map link lower left hand area). This "war" has sparked massive butt-hurt and bad posting. Why am I talking about this you ask? This is why.

It's a parody of the Call me Maybe vid dri posted in the sidebar earlier this week. My bro from the ONT, The Dude, hooked me up with a LoL version, which is probably cooler

Anyways. My Alliance is Deployed, which is one of my favorite things in game. We literally pick up sticks and head off to the buttcrack of space to go mess with someone. Leave a few alts to manage the infrastructure, but beyond that it's Starship Troopers. Even my Alt which does t2 production gets enlisted to do things. Oh you guys are Ratting there? Alt camps there and scares everyone off with probes. Love him or hate him, The Mittani had a great line about war in Eve when we kicked off the Branch war. Do everything you can do to ruin the lives of our enemies through the Eve Online Client.

And if you get comfortable with neuts in system...well you know what time it is... (linking the whole vid)


That's All I have this week friends. Hit me up on the Twitter if you roll like that.

Also. I got a great deal on a larger SSD than the one I'm currently using. I would prefer to not do a clean install or buy image software to migrate over to the new drive. If you have a good guide or advice, post it in the Breitbart section. I am using Win7 and have extra SATA blah blah blah. TIA


SilverGTP here with some news you can possibly use. This Tuesday is the release of the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC. This contains the alternate endings so be sure to download it. If you don't like the new endings, perhaps an FCC complaint will get new ones. It worked the first time, why not again?

A new Gears of War game is in the works, for release next year. You thought you won the war but there's always room for a prequel! Judgment is all about Baird and includes new multiplayer modes such as Overrun:

The Goonswarm struck again within EVE. This time hitting the economy for tons of ISK. More here.

Moronette Polliwogette has created a WoW Horde guild on Hellscream called Val U rite Pudding. If you play WoW then join up and raid everything!

Keep an eye on this website for news about a venture between Adult Swim and Valve. It's sure to be humorous, whatever it is.

Forza Horizon releases this fall and it looks to be a step backward in the franchise. Anyone who played Test Drive Unlimited 2 will instantly recognize this Forza, since it's the same game:

Fans of Star Trek might be excited to see the E3 announcement of a new game, simply called 'Star Trek'. The only decent game I've played is Star Trek Online and this new one looks a lot like Mass Effect. We'll just have to wait and see:

That's all the news I have this week. Summer is always a bit slow for gaming although it's a great time to buy used copies of games for cheap and to trade in old games towards pre-orders for this fall.

As always, find me on Twitter.
