I found the Rugrats one cause I was going through my games and I happen to own that one and saw it marked "THQ" and thought "man, that shit is oddly relevant"

The last THQ game I bought was Space Marine. Was a good game. I hope Relic will be able to do another at some point by Sega, despite them making some very stupid. I'm talking Nocbl levels of stupid here. decisions with games like this over the years. (Viking and Spartan: Total warrior spring to mind.)

That's actually a better analogy of Sega in hindsight.

Speaking of which... Aliens Colonial Marines. Who wants to be the first to announce that it's bad?

That's like number 4 in the dozen or so filters I put up lol.



That's my proudest one. Changed a single word into a part of a sentence that will seamlessly look like it belongs.

But the EGM reviewer that gave halo 4 a 7/10 for lacking ironsights and Michael Bay moments gave it a 9/10!



Any game where you can do this is obviously a great game!

Yeah I read that review, and the ensuing shitstorm that followed in the comments.

People say he was paid off.

It's more likely the guy has horrendous taste.

But it isn't seamless, because it interjects a sentence, rather than a clause, into another sentence. I mean, just look

What you need to do is change it so that rather than adding a period and then interjecting a sentence, it interjects a parenthetical, so that it would look like this:

So, wait.
You can just walk through that level without fighting anything? Not even using speedrunning tricks?
Hell, Even Call of Duty made you rely on AI teammates for that.

*Just looked up the EGM review. The reviewer seriously, in front of God and everybody, said that Halo needed smaller levels, more scripted events, and iron sights because this was how 'modern' FPSs work.
Wow. Just wow.

Like I said, very bad taste. The minute he brought up Micheal Bay I realized he was on the same caliber as that hack who reviewed Borderlands 2 for the Wall Street Journal.

Also found this on that page.



Zombie Xenomorph (Yes really) is so derpy.

At least you dont have regenerating health in Colonial marines. at least from watching the Video. Also wait the chick gets facehuggered? The FUCK FUCK JEEZ TYLER, GAH! that's the same exact thing that happened to the only female marine in AVP, and i'm pretty sure that happened way to often in the aliens movies as well.

Someone should fill that man's house with Serious Sam 3, Halo Reach and delete his entire computer game library and fill it with nothing but copies of Black Mesa.

Actually Dragoon, from what I recall, in the first film the was only one person facehugged was a dude. In Aliens, Vasquez dies in an explosion, The robot and Ripley survive Resurrection, and in both AVP films the female lead survives. The only incidence of a major female character dying due to a facehugger is Alien 3, and even then it's a technicality.

I wasn't saying she dies from it i was saying it happens all the time lol. At least in AVP (The newer game) You end having to save Tequila because she done got face raped. And it happens at least in one Alien movie where the guy spends the entire movie pretty much with a Xeno in his chest.

When THQ got shut down and everyone had to leave Jason Rubin(President/Cofounder) put out a tweet that said

"Not leaving @thq without my personal effects" and this picture



And yes, that is what you think it is. From the game. They make them apparently.

With a name like Nordic Games Publishing how did they make the mistake of thinking they were an AUSTRIAN publisher?
