PC Masterrace, dawg! (And some RB4-Rivals)

Today I finished my Masterrace console (let's not pretend here) with a LG 29UC88-B curved monitor capable of 2560x1080@144 resolution, which marks the completion of my 'ready for Andromeda' project. Well, there's always something, like HW-sonics. But seeing as I own HD-headphones (multichannel), that particular consideration isn't acute in my perception.

PSN: The Flame in the Flood.

The Flame in the Flood is an indie survival simulator to be had on PSN for around €15 ($16). If one's a multi-platform gamer with especially Steam included, the genre-nomer 'indie survival simulator' is almost an immediate reason to disqualify the title as something one should be interested in. Survival games are a dime a dozen and range from average to absolute bottom of the barrel.

The life of a virtual guitargod... How RB4 still misses the mark.

One would think that a company like Harmonix, the fathers of the Guitroller, would hit the ground running when they were granted a new lease on life with the launch of the Xbox One. The Rythm-gaming scene, more paraplegic than healthy, needed the impulse for sure. I believe that a new entry in a franchise shouldn't be judged by what came before, even more sure if what came before has nothing to do with the core-gameplay. But at the same time its rather hard to boot RB4, see what's going on and then not feel taken seriously and robbed from your investment.

Bethesda's new review-policy and youtubers screaming 'think of the children!!'.

It came as no surpise to me that Bethesda's new review policy was immedeately seen as a slight towards the amateur-press as it exists on Youtube. Youtubers dependant on the clicks stand to earn quite a bit when the next Bethesda blockbuster is about to drop and they can show their review-copies off in advert-laden videos or subscribtion based Twitch screenings.

One year later: A look at Rise of the Tombraider with all current DLC.

Were I to come up with a tag-line for Rise of the Tombraider it would be 'Rage of the whinging spinster', because the de-objectifying of ms. Croft left me as a Tombraider-fan since the first game with a lot to desire. Eyecandy-wise Crystal Dynamics merely objectified Lara even more by giving her girl-next-door dimensions and an average white brit face which is a marked improvement over the adult entertainment look she used to have. I love the new Lara. But character- and personality-wise I have no idea what's going on with that moron.
