    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    Sean Gunn, Jame’s brother has taken to Twitter to talk about this. Full text here https://www.themarysue.com/sean-gunn-response/ edit: I’d copy paste it here myself but it’s a bit of a pain on mobile

    Spec Ops: The Line

    I guess I'd love to see it played cold by someone who's gaming diet was purely COD and or Battlefield. It was probably the game that killed military shooters for me (I just played through CODBLOPS 3 and I couldn't get The Line out of my head every time I sat down to play it.)

    No love here for Fidel Dungeon Rescue? Of course being the indie fiend I am I've known about this for...nah...I can't keep this up. It's all @hellcock junior's fault I played this and it's time you did too. @hellcock junior's post

    Also relevant I guess https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/individual/mike-cernovich Allegedly And so it goes round again.

    According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Cernovich (edited for brevity but there's pieces everywhere about his growing influence and success.)

    No Man's Sky - Xbox version and NEXT update 24 July

    My partner loved watching me play No Man's Sky but couldn't deal with the first person view, either to watch or play. This third person option is going to draw her back in big time.

    It might have been this that really made them go for it. https://www.themarysue.com/duplass-gunn-shapiro-twitter-mess/

    In the same way Colin Kaepernick is playing in all these other teams right now. What worked with Arenanet and the games industry has just been proven to work with the movie industry. edit. you can bet there's a load of people combing through Rian Johnson's tweets right now.

    It's the lesson that is galling. Make some edgelord jokes years ago. Repent. Be a better person. Get fired. Or be an edgelord. Double down. Triple down. Profit. Still I guess we're lucky we had two GotG movies given the age of the tweets.

    What now for James Gunn? I mean since he's been sacked for tweets made before the course of his employment I'm guesssing the pizzagators just keep following him around and getting him sacked from any and all jobs he might get.

    No Man's Sky - Xbox version and NEXT update 24 July

    Sean Murray talks to the press for the first time in almost two years. https://www.theguardian.com/games/2018/jul/20/no-mans-sky-next-hello-games-sean-murray-harassment-interview I think they missed the rest of us who've enjoyed chilling out with it the last two years! edit Also this sounds promising to me.

    Interestingly enough one of the few counterpoints I saw on the GOG twitter thread was a sarcastic "thanks" for allowing GG an even louder platform to signal boost from. And I think the media might have caught on to this because whereas a few years ago every games media site would have think pieces about GOG making a mistep then making an apology this time around 24 hours later the media attention has been two news sites and a blog. (According to google news at least.)

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    For me Uridium would be the test. If you can get that running lag free then you can do anything. I still think it’s incredibly brave having that game as your highlighted title!

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    A big selling point for me is the ability to play games for platforms that didn't make it out here or to legally play games I just couldn't get my hands on back in the day due to spotty distribution.

    What games did you complete? 2018 Edition

    Jul 22/07 Call of Duty:Black Ops 3 (PS4) Thought I'd give the single player a crack since I got it for free and I do like sci-fi type plots. Yet went in feeling that it wasn't going to be for me. Hard military games aren't my thing and haven't been for a long time (Spec Ops:the Line being the exception.) And while it's slickness impressed me the rest of it didn't really stick at all. And I know playing the single player campaign is "doing it wrong". I just felt frustrated and unsatisfied (and a bit ungrateful considering the clear effort and talent that went into this.) And old. Very very old. This is what my grandparents might have felt watching me play Commando back in the day. I finished this the same way other people push themselves to finish a book they've started. Short version: Unofficial Who shaking his fist at clouds. 21/07 Gravity Rush 2 (+Raven's Choice DLC) (PS4) There's a lot to love about Gravity Rush 2. Jirga Para Lhao is probably the most blue sky town ever to have been created. The game looks stunning. The feeling of freedom with the flying (more like falling with style) is unmatached. But then there's the downsides. Some of the stealth missions. Some of the bosses with rounded bits so you slide over them rather than hitting them. The small quick enemies that can pretty much do one. I loved some of my time with this game and I'm glad I played it before the community servers shut down. But I doubt I'll be revisiting this. (I know, no soul etc.) 19/07 A Museum of Dubious Splendors (PC) Barely a game, possibly barely a walking simulator but the 15 minutes I spent reading the short stories by Gujarati poet Mir UmarHassan was lovely. The rooms were pleasant as well. Worth a quick download from Steam for the price of FREE. 19/07 Gorogora (PC) Short but lovely puzzle game that was just the thing to distract from some serious illness. It's like an interactive children's book. 16/07 The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit (PS4) The good bits. Reminded me of some of the joys of boyhood. The downside, reminded me of some of the awfulness of boyhood. Bit of a slow burn, it's almost Calvin and Hobbs the video game. And then it comes to a bit of a head. I'm still amazed at how Dontnod seem to be able to create this illusion of a large detailed world with just enough detail so that the mind's eye draws in the rest. It's free, the only thing it might be lacking is a bit of a content warning. 14/07 Assassin's Creed:Revelations (PS4) In this one the eyes are perfectly fine. Change is as good as a holiday and the move for the last game to Constantinople is welcome. And stunning. It looks amazing even now. The Desmond sections are pushed to the back to concentrate on Ezio and...another old friend. It's short, I pretty much mainlined the story but I plan to go back and try to get some of the other achievements. Apart from The Lost Archives. These looked amazing back in the day but now the appeal of a first person walk through a very cold museum holds little appeal. 01/07 Assassin's Creed:Brotherhood (PS4) Let's get the pressing question out of the way. Are the eyes still weird and wonky in this as it was in the AC2 remaster? Not as much. Or at least it's not as noticeable in the models used in Brotherhood. I'd forgotten just how good Brotherhood is. Most of it is set in one city and it's surrounds which combined with it's design gives it a sort of Metroid feel. I still love the process of liberating areas by taking over Borgia towers and the addition of assassin recruits as a sort of "smart bomb" works incredibly well most of the time. Also has a pretty impressive soundtrack too. Worth a replay this one with the best balance of core and non-core activities. From memory the next few games suffer from feature bloat.
