REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Earlier this year, I had a thread about Awesome Games Done Quick 2014, a speedrun marathon event where donations of viewers went to the Prevent Cancer foundation. Many of you might be familiar with AGDQ due to a fire alarm setting off in the middle of Tri-Hex's speedrun.

I felt I should do the same with SGDQ as I did with AGDQ and make a thread to get our users' attention. The events breaks controllers next week starting June 22nd and you can see the schedule here.

I'm looking forward to a few gems in here. Mostly Skyward Sword!

I'm quite glad since SGDQ is usually a bit more rubbish than AGDQ...but it seems like a decent line-up....YAY.

Yeah, the line-up isn't exactly appealing as AGDQ, but I'll still donate $5. I find it fascinating what some of the people do.

I CARE!

Watched some last night, although I can't catch it at work, so... Sad I was disappointed to see or not see that you weren't streaming in competition, UghRochester. Alas.

You didn't even say what the donations are going towards!

My speedrun is on hiatus. And as for charity they chose, they say it every few minutes anyways.

Alpca stole the show.

Alpaca, or Monitor? CAST YOUR VOTES.

I'm at work and I'm really tired. I don't know how I managed to break the internet portal matrix to be able to get here, but here I am and I'm falling asleep help.

What the hell, UghRochester? I said it was Alpaca! You don't need to tell me how right I am.

Want to catch some La Mulana, but that would be a spoiler for me. D:

I wish I had the week off of work. Mrah. But the weekend IS approaching! I can feeeeeeeeeel it, deep in my bones.

Yeah was great. The runner did all Extreme tracks faultless! Apart from Inferno 4 which he faulted 4 times I think. Then he did a Ninja Lv3 Inferno 4 which was mind-numbing how he did some of the obstacles.

Tony Hawk section was great too!
