Agents Of Mayhem: The Kotaku Review

Aug 16, 2017, 8:37pm

I agree, it's hard to get a general consensus because everyone has such widely varying opinions. It seems that the gameplay is fun and solid but the world, missions and characters aren't varied enough to maintain the interest of those who emphasise those aspects more.

What Game Have You Played The Most This Year?

Aug 16, 2017, 8:33pm

I'd guess Hatsune Miku: Future Tone but it might be Diablo 3 because seasons came to console. It would probably have been Persona 5 but after 40 hours I got sick of the game wasting my time and tapped out. I don' know really, it's easier for me to say which games I didn't spend much time on.

YouTube's Mario 64 Genius Sounds Overwhelmed With His Popularity

Sadly this is just how things are on the internet these days. If you're thinking about making YouTube content or streaming on Twitch, be prepared for a lot of this. A lot of people seem to think being entertained by you is synonymous with you being their personal entertainment.

Harassment Livestreams On Twitch Are Multiplying And Easy To Find

Aug 14, 2017, 9:28am

How easy is it for a human to track down Twitch accounts that either focus on, or regularly engage in, verifiable instances of targeted harassment on the platform?
1) Open a Twitch stream with more than 500 viewers.
2) Read the first few comments that appear.

Nine times out of ten one of the comments you see will be some form of harassment, slur, epithet, derision or outcry against justified moderation. I wish this was a joke...

5 Things I Already Love About Agents Of Mayhem

If it's anything like the first Crackdown then I'm in.

5 Things I Already Love About Agents Of Mayhem

Aug 13, 2017, 7:39pm

That's because Agents of Mayhem is in the same universe. MAYHEM, the organisation you work for, is founded by Persephone Brimstone and is being bankrolled by Ultor. We're yet to find out how it fits into the timeline though she is referenced in a particular ending of Gat out of Hell so that is probably how it's going to tie into the series.

Voltron's Third Season Was Initially Supposed To Be 13 Episodes, Which Makes Sense

Aug 11, 2017, 3:53pm

Dr Who used to do this, sometimes because BBC wanted to stack their ratings, other times it was Moffat himself and other times just because. Almost everyone was happy when they stopped so it's disappointing to see someone else start breaking up seasons into two parts.

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Aug 11, 2017, 11:39am

I've found myself happy to continue working towards finishing all Seasonal challenges in Diablo III so I'm working on the Torment X tier now. There will also probably be some Fallen Legion or SMT IV mixed in.

This Is What A Pikachu Invasion Looks Like 

Aug 11, 2017, 9:39am

That was my thought too, though I'm probably more terrible for then thinking it also looked like they'd picked up a bunch of illegal Pikachu immigrants coming in by boat.

Overwatch, A Game About Teamwork, Is Getting A Free-For-All Deathmatch Mode

Aug 11, 2017, 9:34am

So basically they said "Everyone plays it like a deathmatch mode so we may as well make it official." Maybe now it means the team based modes will have people who play as a team.

It will be a good chance to practice skirmishing though because I'm terrible at dealing with multiple enemies.

The Best Audio Logs In Horizon Zero Dawn

Aug 10, 2017, 3:03pm

The audio logs were the best part of the game's story and the exploration of ruins was my favourite part of the game. It really makes me want a proper archaeology game.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, As Told By Steam Reviews

Aug 10, 2017, 2:14pm

Their comments seemed reasonable to me. If you are going to include combat and puzzles in your game then make them feel as good as the story telling and atmosphere otherwise take them out. A game about telling a story should be a good storytelling experience without needing to shoe-horn in more common gameplay just to (seemingly) appeal to the mainstream crowd.

What Features Do You Want In Your Console?

Aug 10, 2017, 1:06pm

I would really love for people to have the ability to create and distribute their own UI mods. Sony's UI/UX designers are absolutely rubbish at their job so it would be nice if someone who knew what they were doing could make something that let me manage my library and features the way I want.

Hellblade May Erase Your Save If You Die Too Many Times

Aug 9, 2017, 10:48am

From the reviews and opinions I've seen the combat is the game's weakest element and isn't that difficult so I wonder if this plays into the "Sacrifice" part of the name and there are points where death is a plot element rather than a consequence of failing combat too many times.

Horizon Zero Dawn's Expansion, The Frozen Wilds, Launches November 7

Aug 9, 2017, 12:26am

I'm not really sure I'll get this as I didn't find the original game to be all that good. The gameplay plateaued very quickly and for a game full of robot dinosaurs there was very little incentive to actually bother hunting them. The main story was pretty standard and predictable too which was disappointing because spelunking in the ruins and hearing the story told in the notes and data pads was fantastic and easily the best part of the game.

Still, if the DLC focuses more on the hunting aspect of the game it might be worth picking up as a way to fill the gap until Monster Hunter World comes out.

What's Your Favourite TV Show Or Movie To Rewatch?

Aug 8, 2017, 12:25pm

My "comfort" shows tend to be:
Hellsing Ultimate
Escaflowne
Nadesico
S-Cry-ed
Casshern Sins
Outlaw Star
Ergo Proxy

Basically, anime. Although really there's a very limited list of shows that I actually turn to when I'm feeling like poop.
