Almost 30 hours into the game so far and I’m still loving it. That’s a genuinely uncommon thing!

Major props to Re-Logic, looking forward to future content updates like a heroin addict looks forward to his next fix.

You can purchase the game on Steam and it currently sells for only $9.99!

Ah, why not? Just finished it, may as well review it. I can crank one of these out in pretty much no time at all, and that’s awesome for me right now.

Back to old games soon though!

I’ll probably be doing more “LGR Quickie” videos than full-length reviews for the foreseeable future. Perhaps a few of these a month, with one or two longer reviews. Just less time around here and more things to do, you know?

This video is an abridged overview, history and opinion of each Duke Nukem game released. Simple enough, enjoy!

Duke Nukem Forever is out on June 14th here in the USA (for some reason, I don’t get why Europe already has it) so expect the review sometime later.

Duke Nukem Forever demo – First impressions

Last night I was up at midnight on Steam with Chrome open to the side, refreshing the First Access Club constantly. Then I saw a tweet by George Broussard saying the demo was indeed going to be online within minutes. It was, I downloaded the demo, I played the crap out of it!

DUKE NUKEM FOREVER.

Finally happening. Yes, it’s amazing and historic and stuff. But is it any good?

I’ve quickly made a video (posted above) playing through the 15-20 minute demo and giving my thoughts on it. Being a LONGTIME Duke fan (since, what, 1992?) I hope my word carries at least an ounce of weight. Anyways, here’s a basic summary of my likes and not-so-muches, judging by the very short demo only.

Praises:
It’s DNF!
Awesome humor
Gunplay feels great
Unique areas/items
Insane interactivity
Sweet environments
Not boring

Concerns:
Two-Weapons-Only system
Lame Shrink Ray stomping
Mouse aiming somewhat floaty
Overkill depth-of-field
Gameplay simply “good enough”
Duke Vision high-pitch noise
“Use” icon/hints popping up

The Sims 3 Generations Review - Lazy Game Reviews

It’s June 1st, it’s online, go watch!

This one ended up being my longest Sims review yet. Maybe my longest scripted review yet? Whatever, it’s lengthy, at seventeen minutes. So much freaking crap comes with this expansion, I just couldn’t edit things down any further, and I tried! Oh well, hopefully this answers the 43 billion questions I’ve been sent about this thing.
