LMAO....that guy at IGN has been found to have ripped off all kinds of shit now, including his resume. Hilarious.

Honestly, he just LOOKS like a sleazeball. I'm surprised they even hired him.

BTW, hours into Vampyr now. It's like a cross between Bloodborne's atmosphere, Resident Evil's tension, and Deus Ex's inventory and upgrade mechanics. But it's not as good as those games, but still well worth playing because it combines all those ideas together into something unique.

Vampyr is on my list of games to check out, but my enthusiasm for the game definitely waned once it was released. The general take on it seems like it's good, but not as good as it could have been.

Anyone who rips off other writers is pretty dirty in my book, but I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and just say he was a dumb guy that made a dumb mistake. But after he released his "sorry I got caught" apology it was pretty clear that he was a piece of crap. That said, I'm not super surprised he got hired, as the only thing you really need to write for a game site these days is some persistance and a willingness to work for just over minimum wage. I am surprised they made the dumbass an editor though. Shit, that just makes me wonder how bad the rest of the staff at IGN is. Then again that's not true. I haven't been to IGN in years.

Neither have the people who hire the staff.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.

Will I finally get my chance to play a Timesplitters game? It's about time.

He basically does what I did to Dvader's Uncharted 4 review, when I jokingly took it and changed it into a Rise of the Tomb Raider review. Only this guy was getting paid for it. LOL

I watched it.  I was upset that it wasn't directly videogame related, but nice graphics nontheless.

I’ll pick up Diablo 3 again for the Switch. I really enjoy the game and think that it’d be pretty cool to have the ability to play it on the go as well.

I remember being pissed that Diablo 2 never came out for consoles. They did a great D1 port on the PS1, and Diablo 2 came out right around the same time as Dreamcast. I was drooling over Diablo 2 online play on the Cast...but it never happened. Then surely they would release it on the PS2, I quipped....nope. No deal there either. I think they missed an opportunity there.

This got me.  After a trying day at work, I log on and read this thinking, “ I read this this morning but I thought Robio wrote it.”

THQ Nordic acquires rights to Timesplitters   and Second Sight​

Dude, this is actually great fucking news. This pretty much guarantees they will be getting HD remasters, as THQ Nordic have pretty much rereleased everything they own.

Yay!
