yeah, that's a great article and summary, to the point where i do not feel the need to actually play the game. go HG101!

one year passes...

Ride to hell: retribution just dropped to $10 used at my local gamestop, so it's on

Admittedly this feels like less of a good idea now that I am not drunk and it isn't the middle of the night, but now I feel like I have locked in my commitment to the cause.

btw I think someone has rounded up and burned every existing copy of Nier, I can't find it anywhere

Bitch Fantastic (DJP), Friday, 11 October 2013 18:40 (six years ago) link

i would watch a jjj let's play of daikatana

You know, the Game of Thrones game is in this week's humble bundle.

JimD, Friday, 11 October 2013 22:41 (six years ago) link

i heard it's actually not as bad as they say

Nhex, Friday, 11 October 2013 23:52 (six years ago) link

Oh man I hit the motherlode

Ride to hell
Darkness 2
Afro samurai
Homefront
The saboteur (this is not terrible but nobody cared abt it and now I have it for ps3)

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 October 2013 01:33 (six years ago) link

Ok so the big plus to buying terrible games on ps3 is no one bothers to make you download any updates because no one gives a shit. Coming for you ride to hell.

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 October 2013 05:04 (six years ago) link

Wow even the start screen looks like low res garbage

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 October 2013 05:05 (six years ago) link

Oh
My
God

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 October 2013 05:08 (six years ago) link

This is worth the $8 already just due to the insane senseless intro and shock inducingly terrible mind blowing script. Like srsly magic stupid oh man I am going to love this game.

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 October 2013 05:12 (six years ago) link

I think the controller shakes any time you are on a bike because uh motorcycle? Gameplay is super crazy terrible

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Saturday, 12 October 2013 05:20 (six years ago) link

There is so much bad dialogue I can't even catch it all.

"You look like an old baby cow. You ever slice the ear off a baby cow? It's funny"

I shit you not.

lol I'm so glad you bumped this thread and gave me the chance to read it

Andrew Kornfan, Saturday, 12 October 2013 10:48 (six years ago) link

the saboteur is properly great, don't put it in this cruel cruel thread :(

NI, Saturday, 12 October 2013 16:12 (six years ago) link

oh man you have me tempted to run out and buy this right now

papa smango (fadanuf4erybody), Saturday, 12 October 2013 22:40 (six years ago) link

saboteur was fabulous, gtfo

Euler, Saturday, 12 October 2013 22:54 (six years ago) link

No, I know, but it was a horrendous flop. Unfairly! I think it's awesome. But it still fits my criteria.

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Sunday, 13 October 2013 06:23 (six years ago) link

I mean BULLETSTORM is on my list but still got my number one spot that year. Deadly Premonition is also all time great. I do this out of love.

ACA: not bad, needs more death panels (jjjusten), Sunday, 13 October 2013 06:27 (six years ago) link

Nier is the only game this gen that i've gone back and replayed (twice!), just love running around the world listening to that amazing soundtrack while the companion characters bicker behind me. Drakengard 3 is coming out in the west next year and has the same writer/director and sound team, so hopefully it retains some of the atmosphere (Nier was a spinoff from the Drakengard series after all)

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Sunday, 13 October 2013 12:16 (six years ago) link

i keep thinking about picking up Nier

Nhex, Sunday, 13 October 2013 17:01 (six years ago) link

Does 50 Cent: Blood on the Sands fit into this niche? the voiceovers push it into it IMO, the game itself is just totally uninspired.

Charlie Brooker is entertainingly vitriolic about that game

Neil S, Monday, 14 October 2013 13:25 (six years ago) link

btw, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a self-aware-ish budget title that looks fairly enjoyable if you are so inclined

Andrew Kornfan, Thursday, 17 October 2013 11:45 (six years ago) link

When it hits a budget price I think I'll bite on Dragon's Crown

Nhex, Thursday, 17 October 2013 16:19 (six years ago) link

Ha, Ride to Hell dropped to $10 at BestBuy. I'm really tempted to get it from jjjusten's review here but... i've probably got enough legitimately good games in the backlog that it would be unwise

Nhex, Tuesday, 22 October 2013 03:37 (six years ago) link

Love this review

Nhex, Saturday, 9 November 2013 05:41 (six years ago) link

Ooooh, Catherine is hitting this sweet spot. Not so much terrible as just super super weird

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Saturday, 16 November 2013 06:20 (six years ago) link

Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad on sale on PSN. Thoughts?

Nhex, Friday, 29 November 2013 20:17 (six years ago) link

Nhex, Saturday, 30 November 2013 05:54 (six years ago) link

On the plus side flash sale on deadpool so uh oh

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Saturday, 30 November 2013 06:08 (six years ago) link

Ha never mind, on sale for less in physical format. Tomorrow you will be mine, terrible terrible game.

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Saturday, 30 November 2013 06:11 (six years ago) link

also:
ride to hell: retribution - $7
defiance - $7
aliens: colonial marines - $9
http://www.gamefly.com/Store/PS3/

Aliens - that's the broken one that looks like a PS2 game?

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 10 December 2013 21:58 (five years ago) link

true of so many games, but yes

a friend picked up the Alone in the Dark reboot mentioned way upthread as a gag and oh my god this is really something

papa smango (fadanuf4erybody), Wednesday, 11 December 2013 01:55 (five years ago) link

two weeks pass...

Aliens: Colonial Marines for PC download, $1.99 just for today. Comes with coupon for $5 off an Amazon download next month, they're usually pretty good with their "Best Of" selection in January.

dudes i want to talk about Anarchy Reigns

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Monday, 13 January 2014 18:34 (five years ago) link

so its a sequel (kind of?) to madworld, closed world beat-em-up that is also apparently a 20ish character fighting game as well - im hot garbage with regards to fighters, so i am not a good judge. dumb as a brick in many ways, weird "why is this here" vehicle timed lap racing sections, no attempt at even vague coherency, interspersed with completely out of character and hamfisted "touching" dead kid storyline. its a glorious god damn mess so far, not as broken as ride to hell (which well jesus i dont know if anything in recent memory is that broken) but so bafflingly out of step with videogames of the modern day that it is quite refreshing. its no bulletstorm, but its cheap as dirt and solidly in the spirit of this thread.

Wendy Carlos Williams (jjjusten), Monday, 13 January 2014 18:43 (five years ago) link

sounds fun, will wait for $5
