Scatter Storming. Issue #018 “I Have Giant Testicles”

ss018Well these “classy” series Scatter Stormings didn’t stay classy for very long. This cover is a screengrab from an old sketch “comedy” movie I made with a dear friend of mine. “I have giant testicles” is a line from the scene that that unfortunate grab was taken from. I decided it would be appropriate to have something horrible as the cover for the first February issue of this illustrious feature, so there we have it. Let’s talk about games.

I miss Mass Effect -
Apparently when you go back to work, you’re unable to play video games as often. Who knew? Luckily, tomorrow’s my last day before the 3 week Olympic break. I will beat it then. I truly miss it. Like how one might miss a lover.

Darksiders 2?! -
Speaking of games I miss. I’m really looking forward to polishing off this gem after I knock out Mass Effect and before Final Fantasy 13 eats up my life. Now this is more in the realm of news, but this story broke after Riddles’ fantastic HLL on Tuesday. The point is that Darksiders did well and THQ isn’t stupid, so we’re getting a sequel. Yes please. (IGN)

More IGN Flamebait articles -
But, truly, I like it. It emphasizes the personalities of the site, and I’ve always been an advocate of that. Hell, look at Riddlethos, just since Sunday, Riddles has recounted a day in his life and posted a hideous picture of himself, while I posted a Facebook conversation and featured myself in my boxers this week. Anyway, controversial loudmouth, Greg Miller is a renowned PS3 fanboy but writes about how he thinks Mass Effect 2 is better than Uncharted 2. Frankly, I agree. Read it here and tell me if you agree.

The Last Guardian non-news -
This is starting to read more like a Tingle! Tingle! Kooloo-Limpah! feature, but hey, it’s what’s on my mind. Fumito Ueda is The Last Guardian’s director and recently joined in the latest craze: releasing news about releasing news. Yes, in an interview, Ueda talked about how The Last Guardian might be talked about E3 if Sony wants to. Great. Good stuff. Thanks. Basically confirms that this game is coming out in 2013. I’m barely joking. Kingdom Hearts 3 will come out before this shit. Hey…I wonder if that’ll be announced…

A New Development -
Speaking of that Facebook conversation I posted, there’s no better way to end this segment than with his reply that came just recently. Yes, folks, you can’t deny it: February sucks.

  1. Riddles says:

    I agree that Mass Effect 2 is better than Uncharted 2. But to be frank, it’s not much of a comparison.

    Uncharted 2 may have been 2009’s blockbuster, but in the end, and as I believe you’ve mentioned, Uncharted is limited to what Uncharted is – and Mass Effect is so much more. Deeper plot, deeper characters, deeper combat and gameplay mechanics, everything is deeper, bigger, and more complex.

    I know I’m essentially restating what Greg said in his article, but the point is that I agree.

    Well Uncharted 2 was a much better game than Mass Effect 1, but since I haven’t played ME2 yet, I’m uncertain about how it’s improvements will have it stack up against U2 …

  3. Ethos says:

    Hrm, if you think Uncharted 2 was much better than ME1, than you may not ultimately agree.
    Then again, Riddles didn’t love the first one and is jizzing over the second, so who knows?

  4. DarthGibblet says:

    I still haven’t played ME2 of Uncharted 2, but I’d say that Uncharted 1 was a better game than ME1, but I enjoyed ME1 a lot more. To be honest, it was buggy as hell, but the characters and story drew me in much more than they did in Uncharted (and I liked the characters and story in Uncharted). Here’s to hoping I enjoy ME2 just as much, minus the rushedness of ME1.
