Wouldn’t Want to Wake the Neighbors
Enjoy a new serving of comic for your Monday morning meal. I’ll only say that occasionally in the course of human events, it might happen that an object catches fire, and it might not exactly be the desired result. Also no couches were harmed in the making of this comic.
I’m not sure what to say about this. I had hoped for quite some time that Netflix would add video games to their service, but this was not how I envisioned it happening. How it could possibly improve customer service to shove mail based rentals into a separate entity and brand is beyond me. Especially with now a whole separate website to deal with, separate bills to pay, and other things separate I’m sure. It seems that they are sending the mail DVD service to the Qwikster brand to die. I don’t see the addition of games improving its appeal by much. Waiting several weeks or more after release date for a new game is not something I am willing to do. I think the majority of you who play games enough to justify paying for a monthly service would agree.
I finally finished my full BloodRayne: Betrayal review, which you can read here. I don’t put numbers in my reviews because I find them repulsive. You can think of it as more complete collection of the thoughts I have posted here. I played a bit more tonight, trying to obtain better than an F rating on a few more chapters. I managed C ratings up until Chapter 8 or so, after which speed runs become exceedingly difficult to perform.
It seems that the sequel to Shadow Complex has completed its design phase. Absolutely no release estimate has been given and I can understand why. In software development, designs are all relative. Sure, in the best case, a complete design might include detailed level maps, weapons, a story outline, and character descriptions. However, the designer might also write “Like Shadow Complex but with more stuff” on a napkin and call it a day. Even so, it is exciting that someone is at least thinking about making the sequel.
