    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I just finished blazing through Harmony of Dissonance on Maxim mode, which was far too easy for its own good. Added to this is the base game's problem of not having nearly enough warp points, making backtracking very tedious. Maxim is still a very fun character to play as though.
  2. @Impie What I wouldn't give to see the long lost pilot episode for Operation: Aliens. If the action figures were indicative of anything, there would have been an episode where a marine disguises himself as a xenomorph in order to infiltrate their ranks. Amazing.

    Share a random fact about yourself

    Uh, I like both Metallica and Megadeth. I know a lot of people that do. That's pretty normal.
  4. Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and Darkstalkers were all hilariously awful and in no way hurt their respected franchises.
  5. Let's not forget the reputation Activision has for treating its employees, which is very similar to Konami's reputation.
  6. This coming right after their split with Bungie, and the news of their plummeting stock prices. Massive corporations tend to get away with doing a lot of awful things, but one thing they usually don't get away with is screwing with their investors. https://gamerant.com/activision-fraud-bungie/

    I was very disappointed with Bare Knuckle 3. The music was extremely grating and the emphasis on telling a dark story about a criminal syndicate looking to initiate a nuclear war was poorly executed and felt out of place. And maybe it's just me, but the hit detection felt slightly off. There's a good game underneath all the problems, but I found the game annoying more than anything.
  8. I don't agree with this, especially when you factor in power fantasy mods such as Russian Overkill. Part of why I love the Wraithverge so much is because it isn't monstrously overpowered. I found the power level for the weapon to be perfectly balanced. There's plenty of situations where it's the best weapon to use, but it never outright replaces the other weapons, and it also chews through a lot of ammo. Also, there's a lot of weapons being mentioned here that I wouldn't classify as being power weapons.

    Urban Brawl: Action DooM 2

    I really enjoyed the first Action Doom, but I didn't care for Action Doom 2 very much at all. Credit where credit is due, I love the cell shaded visuals and attention to detail. It's clear that a lot of hard work was put into this WAD, and I hope to see more Doom WADs that look like this. But unfortunately, the combat just isn't very enjoyable. Melee combat can be tremendously fun when it's properly implemented in Doom, but here it just feels monotonous and unengaging. The game also suffers from a great deal of tonal inconsistency. Action Doom 2 tries telling a dark and gritty story about a depressed ex-cop trying to rescue his daughter from an evil corporation, and it's reminiscent of Max Payne and Sim City. The game world itself is in absolute contrast to the tone of the story and makes the experience, on the whole, feel very jarring. This isn't helped by the fact that the writing is very cliched and lackluster. Action Doom 2 is an excellent idea with poor execution.
