I just played the first episode of TellTale's Jurassic Park game. They really should have just made it an actual FMV game rather than this piss poor real time engine with no gameplay that couldn't be accomplished with FMV. Then they wouldn't have saddled the thing with low polycounts and muddy textures.

So I beat Wonderful 101 last night, it was a unique one of a kind experience so over the top and felt like it could have been Platinum's final game. That being said, it does get pretty damn repetitive especially since it's a ****ing looooonnnggg game. I just wanted it to be over halfway through, I got sick of it by the end.

I started Mutant Mudds since it was free through PSN+. I think I am digging it so far.

It's Evo weekend and I've got a hankering for fighting games. If anybody wants to play some KOF13 or Skullgirls or even Naruto, hit me up.

I'd probably even be convinced to fire up the old Vampire Savior or Third Strike. And obviously VOOT is a perpetual "yes!" Basically anything with functional netcode, I guess I'm saying.

In unrelated news there's a huge Marvel Heroes bonus weekend going on. 100% bonus to a bunch of things, including XP, and they added daily login rewards that are fairly generous.

Also, everybody who owns Guild Wars 2 should make sure to log in to any character to permanently unlock the first episode of the new season. Otherwise you need to buy it later.

This thread doesn't seem to be solving my RT problems, though it might be slightly better.

After 250 hours (!) of Borderlands 2, I think I'm finally finished. The hardcore endgame gauntlet is super tedious and anything but UVHM is too boring for another character at this point.

I'd like to get back into Skullgirls.

I've been meaning to spend some more time with Squigly. Still haven't even tried Big Band yet! What's the matter with me!

Too much Luftrausers, I think. It has that "that was a pretty good run but I know I can do better and probably complete this challenge too" magic.

Me too. I'm terrible at it, but I got it!

Yeah, I remember being really disappointed when I first saw "game play" of it. When the FMV-loaded Sega CD JP game is far more of a real game that you, you've got problems.

Every time I see Brolylegs play, it makes me feel ridiculous for being so crappy at fighting games.

I'm fine with the gameplay. I think it'd be pretty awesome as an FMV game. The problem I have with it is the game looks like toilet.

So, for whatever reason, the EVO stream plays better for me off IGN rather than Twitch; I don't really get it as it's the exact same stream, but whatever.

Maybe the chat? I always immediately close out the chat on Twitch. It's complete garbage, and I've notices significant improvements on hitches and stuff with it off.

Evo has been great so far. Too bad I have to work tomorrow and will probably miss Injustice and KoF finals.

I feel like I've tried that and not seen any benefit, but that was at a time when I was having way worse trouble with the stream. So maybe it does make the little difference I'm seeing today.

It has been really good.

Some of the names that are already going up against each other are pretty nuts.

I'd love to see Nuckledu over Champ. The Empire must reign (and afford flights home).

If Nuckledu loses, I blame Elixir.
