2009’s sledgehammer-swinging simulator Red Faction: Guerrilla ended up being one of those games for me. As in a ‘whoa, this is what I dreamed the future of video games would be like as a kid’ type revelation. Emerged from deep within the dustiest corners of my mind; created over countless weekends of rental regrets. While I may have technically been playing the likes of Virtual Bart or Brutal: Paws of Fury, I was actually elsewhere – looking forward to a distant time where a game would reward me for driving a truck into the side of a building to somehow complete a rescue mission which should have required a certain degree of care and planning.
After a long absence, I return with the next Durpthrough session of Fatal Frame IV!
Beware the narrow hallways that make fighting ghosts nearly impossible, the deathly fear of potential game-breaking bugs, the bewildering persistence of that nurse I can’t remember the name of, the REVENGENCE of Ayako as I storm her room for sheet music, the wheelchair lady who somehow pushes herself, and the terrifying black death thing that scares the living shit out of me!
Ooooops, I’ve had these done for a while now, but I’ve been so busy I forgot to put them up.
In this round, Misaki battles a bully from her childhood and a new character surfaces to explore the medical wing of the creepy complex in search of the man responsible for the kidnappings. The ghost encounter rate continues to increase as the setting gets spookier, so how long can I last!? Enjoy!
What do little boys, tag teams, creepy old men, nurses, and an old, abandoned hospital have in common?
Actually, don’t answer that. The answer is, Batch 2 of my Fatal Frame IV Durpthrough! The ghost encounters escalate as the plot sends me fighting an unexpected and familiar villain, puts me behind the eyes of yet another character, and teases a battle against a sadistic little girl! Enjoy!
Okay, here it is, a new round of Durpthroughs! This time I take on another horror game, Fatal Frame IV, developed by none other than Grasshopper Manufacture (home of Suda 51, if you are one of those heathens). Fatal Frame IV has a rather interesting history behind it, or rather, an interesting story of why it was never localized. See, it WOULD have been localized if not for the fact that Tecmo was too cheap to go back and fix a bunch of glitches that were in the Japanese copy of the game (a couple of which prevent progress, and others that make it impossible to 100% the game no matter what you do). NOE had actually started promoting the game in their region before NCL decided that it just didn’t make sense to localize a game that wasn’t to their standards. So screw you, Tecmo!
Anyway, let’s hope I can pull through the entire game without running into anything game-breaking. So grab yourself a bowl of popcorn, turn off all the lights, and enjoy the scares (or me shrieking like a schoolgirl, whichever fits your fancy)!
Ah, the age old question. It’s a debate that’s raged on over the internet gaming community for the past decade or so. Gran Turismo has dazzled people over the years with its fantastic presentation, wealth of options and satisfying career mode. Forza has emerged with improved driving physics and community aspects, and now thanks to Kinect support you can move your head in your living room to look around realistically inside your TV. If only there was some kind of “joystick” device for such a feature, maybe in the future. Nevertheless, both Forza and Gran Turismo have a lot to offer. For someone looking for a true racing experience, which one is the best bet?
I really wanted to do a special Halloween Durpthrough of a random horror game in my collection, giving you all an uncensored, uncut look into how much I freak out when I’m playing a REAL horror game. Unfortunately, I currently sound like a frog being cranked through a meat grinder thanks to the horrible timing of a heinous mix of bronchitis and laryngitis. So instead of something that might have been good, you get the final batch of Dead Island clips.
I completely skipped recording the prison section of the game right before the final boss because, well, I was sick of recording at the time, and didn’t realize we were so close to the end. It’s not like you missed anything anyway.
So enjoy our last leg through the jungle, our bout with the ultimate worst final boss this generation, and finally the ridiculous closure (or lack thereof) of this miserable pile of pumpkin snot. The horror…THE HORROR!
These have been uploaded for quite a while, but I forgot to post them here on the site before I went on vacation. Those of you who actually care probably already noticed them on PieTube, but here they are anyway. The last batch should be up sometime in the next few days (the ending sucks, by the way, SURPRISE!), so until then enjoy the game-breaking glitches!
The REGGIE SERIES is BACK, enhanced with the power of Reggie MotionPlus.
Getting some housekeeping done by clearing these years-old Super Smash Bros. Brawl videos from my hard drive. This batch covers the latest 10 videos dated from June 16 to June 21, 2008. Included are few random Basic Brawls; a couple matches with fellow Pietriot, “Mario”; and some matches with Maxi from the crusty old Former Nintendo Fan Report Planet (FNFRP). See the link below.
If you remember “Mario” from FNFRP, you’re old like us =[
Super Smash Bros. Brawl, 10 60fps videos (DivX)
ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES EVERYWHERE THEY ARE ALL OVER ME GET THEM OFF! OH GOD THEY ARE IN MY PANTS NOW IN MY PAAAAAAAAAAAAANTS!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!
And now for something completely the same: Batch 3 of our Dead Island Durpthrough. The second vid is the last “full” clip I’m uploading, because it’s pretty boring sitting around through the bunch of NOTHING the game tosses at us just to get to the interesting parts (where Ferny and I do crazy shit). From then on are edited bits of chaos and stupidity. Enjoy!
Ferny and I have been cranking time into this game (mostly to just get the damn thing over with), so this time there are four videos as opposed to three! What to look forward to in our latest adventures:
~ Our desperate attempt to find ANY (non-gun) weapons!
~ More jerk-offs who have nothing better to do than shoot at other survivors!
~ A cameo by a member of the Banoi Hockey Team!
~ Dispatching of looters just ’cause!
~ Ferny blowing me up…AGAIN…!
~ A tranny wanting us to put posters of him up around town!
~ Me blowing Ferny up for a change!
~ Endlessly spawning Infected!
~ Our fear of falling from heights of up to TEN FEET!
~ Ferny’s exquisite driving skills!
~ OOOOOO, CHAMPAGNE!
~ Ferny and I dying plenty of times!
~ Oh, and zombies…Lots and lots and lots of zombies!
