Mar 24th 2011 8:55PM @aawells07 Yeah. JoWood games always make me so sad. I always think, "Wow, this game would be great, if only it sucked less." The games they publish always seem to have so much potential, but utterly fail to reach it. I don't know how much of that is their fault and how much is the developers', but a lack of polish is often a result of time and budget constraints, which I can easily see being the publisher's fault.
Mar 17th 2011 5:18AM @PointlessPuppies Whoa, hold on. I love CD Projekt, but they've released ONE game. ONE. Calling them "the best developer by far" is stretching it a bit. Without any real track record to speak of, they're not even eligible for the title yet.
Mar 10th 2011 8:59PM Somebody should probably let them know that they missed the Zelda anniversary already.
Feb 11th 2011 7:03PM @Raiki Yeah...I could make the later session, but I'm still working through the single player (almost done!) and haven't tried multiplayer yet. I probably wouldn't even get the damn suit even if I did participate.

In Dead Space 2, I find that I'm generally just as short on ammo as I was in, say, RE4, if not a bit more. I guess whether you consider RE4 proper "survival horror" is at issue there, though.
Feb 9th 2011 8:34PM @Measlesopolis Another, slightly different idea: The necromorphs are basically colonies of single-celled or other small organisms that have invaded and animated dead tissue. To eliminate the threat, you have to reduce the size of the colony. A penetrating wound, like a body shot, removes a very small percentage of the colony. There are also no meaningful organs in the torso any more, so there's no reason to think that a body shot would do any more damage than a limb shot. On the other hand, when you separating an arm, you remove a huge amount of the colony, which is why it does so much more effective damage.
It may just be a game, and it may not matter, but it's fun to think about anyway.
Feb 5th 2011 11:16PM @xiLeShadow That's extremely interesting to me, because I have serious concerns about the way the THQ store works. I'll buy Red Faction Guerrilla and Metro 2033 if I can confirm that this applies to those games as well.
Feb 3rd 2011 11:37PM This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. God damn.
Feb 2nd 2011 11:29PM I'm going to just go ahead and call this "hideous."
