Even my character looks fucking done with this game a scant 10 minutes in.

Fallout 4 is the latest game the Internet seems to be blowing its collective load over, and I find that baffling, cause it ain’t a good game.
If you don’t want to read several paragraphs where I get mad about Fallout 4, then let me sum things up for you right out of the gate: there’s an overabundance of content, and approximately zero soul. Basically, it’s every major RPG Bethesda has released since Oblivion, and while content over quality is something that may have worked in, say, 2008 when Fallout 3 was brand new, it shouldn’t get a pass now.
But I have more to say about that, so why not hit that little “read more” button and watch me lose my damn mind about this video game.

Normally I wouldn’t talk at length about a mod, but Black Mesa has been a mod that has been in the back of my mind for a few weeks now, so I figured it was the perfect time to talk about it.

Don’t you know that GoG.com is having a summer sale where approximately EVERY GAME EVER MADE is on sale?  I guess if you insist you CAN stay here instead of buying the best game ever made for 2 dollars, the Legacy of Kain collection, or the best game series for sneaky stealing before the new one came along and diligently ruined it.

Well I guess I can cook up a review for you. From my butthole to your brain. I guess we could take a look at Postal. Maybe talking about this game will bore you so hard you’ll have to go buy the Rayman collection which includes the utterly sublime Rayman 2.

I’ve always gotten this band confused with Rise Against. For some reason Rage Against The Machine never fell into my confusion though, and I’m curious as to why. I think I have it nailed down actually, while Rise Against is radio ready punk disguised under a political subtext, Against Me is radio read punk disguised under a-

Microsoft has learned a lot in the past year, and done well to actually turn their image around. They’ve changed their stance on DRM, removed the Kinect to help lower the cost of buying an Xbox One, and they dedicated the full 90 minutes of their media briefing to games and only games. There’s a stark difference between the Microsoft of today and a year ago.

It’s about time Trent released a new album, after all these Oscar winning soundtracks and How to Destroy Angels records it’s about time he sat down to write a new album consisting of the sonic landscapes and the percussive assault we’ve come to expect from Nine Inch Nails. Ever since The Downward Spiral this one man project has been notorious for their post-industrial madness and oftentimes hilarious yet always endearing angst, let’s see what Trent has re-emerged with.
