Ugh. I hate hype machines about upcoming games. Don't get me wrong. I love previews where we see screen shots and get some idea of what the story's going to be about.
Where I put you to sleep by commenting on multiple topics rather than boring you to death with just one.
In yesterday's "I Quit" blog, I mentioned my other competitive multiplayer pet peeve: ignoring objectives in order to pad your stats.
No, this isn't a post saying that I'm leaving GI or anything like that (and hopefully this text also being visible will make it so that nobody thinks I am).
Gee, I complain about a lack of blogs and then I miss a day. Don't I feel like a hypocrite.
This is going to be one of those multiple topics, almost stream-of-consciousness grab bag posts
Not that there are any sensitive ears, but consider yourself warned that there is a bit of salty language in it.
Do you find yourself improving to a great extent when you play a game?
One of the buzzwords for gaming nowadays is "co-op" multiplayer, whether it's 2 players in a room or (much more commonly) online. Sometimes it's 2-player co-op, sometimes 4 (and sometimes even 3!).
Some people can multi-task while others have a hard time doing that. Then there are some of us that are fine at multi-tasking but don't have the ability to spread their interest around multiple "fun" activities at the same time.
I was listening to the Talk Radar podcast from June 11, and they had a wickedly funny riff on the collection of thermoses in Alan Wake.
