I have been a huge fan of TheBestGamersUSA for about a year now, and after they disbanded I was crushed. For those of you who don't know them, they started as a game reviewing group who were largely satirical, giving ignorant reviews and purposely baiting for hate. Their honest reviews started to take over, however, and the editor felt like they had lost their original feeling, which caused them to disband.
However, on August 17th, they're back as LoudHouse, to bring honest opinions for the masses. I love groups like GatherYourParty and TheBestGamers purely for their honesty. They're not motivated by ads or hype, and don't dole out garbage. So yeah, go to Loudhouse.vg and have a ball.
I caved and preordered Darksiders 2. Video games.
I bought Planescape Torment last week and am thoroughly enjoying it. If you like the old Infinity Engine style RPGs that use Dungeons and Dragon as their influence, you'll love it. The story so far is excellent, the dialogue options are downright amazing, and the game itself just feels so right.
However, I am having an issue that the internet cannot solve: whenever I enter combat, my playable character takes on a mind of his own and attacks everything without taking any orders from me. I don't know if I changed a setting, or I pushed a button, but if anyone can help me better than google, by all means tell me.
I really liked writing my "Chosen Undead vs. Dovahkiin vs. Fateless One" article, so I'm probably going to do another one similar to it. If anyone has any matchups that are begging for an analysis, by all means turn me on to them.
And that's it. Stay tuned for everything, I actually bought new games for once and I'll have something to review.
