Something I have noticed about the newer Mortal Kombat games, aside from the dumb costume choices for MK 11 is the new tradition of including horror characters as DLC guest characters in every installment.

MK9 had Freddy Kruger while MKX had Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Alien, and Predator, and the newest MK game has Spawn.

The issue is that with the Disney buyout of FOX, we probably won't be seeing any return appearances of Alien, Predator, or other FOX-owned franchises like Terminator since Disney is notoriously stingy with licensing their IP's.

However, I do have an idea for guest fighters as DLC in the next Mortal Kombat game. Maybe not as main headliners, but they could be included as part of a DLC with other Warner Brothers-owned horror characters.

I'd include Count Von Tokentakker and Evil Marie from the old 90's light gun game CarnEvil as guest fighters.

Yeah, it's obscure as fuck but it is horror-related and more importantly, CarnEvil is a Midway franchise that is now owned by Warner Brothers so there's not an issue with licensing costs or other legal hurdles.

Apparently, the same deal that allowed WB to acquire the Mortal Kombat IP also included the rights to CarnEvil and a few other Midway games from back in the 90's.

I know it will never happen, but there's nothing keeping it from happening other than the age and obscurity of CarnEvil.

On that note, I miss light gun games. Shame that Time Crisis 5 still doesn't have a console port, so it might as well be Japan-exclusive.
The only guest I wanted for MK11 is Michael Myers. If we could get him, Ash and Tall Man, I’d be over the moon.

I kind of wanna get Party Hard 1 and 2 off the E Shop. I kind of like the art style of it.

I recently got Story of Seasons: Olive Town. Pretty good.

I bought Party Hard on Steam when I was living in a shitty neighbourhood where my neighbours blasted music at all hours. Very cathartic. It was a no brainer to buy it again on Switch.

Eh, I'd personally prefer something akin to The Matrix Path Of Neo should an Evangelion video game get made. Just go full on meta and tongue and cheek.

On a different note, I just finished Splinter Cell Chaos Theory for the first time. I think I can safely call it my third favorite stealth game, with Thief II being my second favorite, and MGS2 and MGS3 being tied for first.

Any other stealth games I should try? I heard that Hitman Blood Money is pretty good.

It's only facet of the gameplay but the stealth in the Batman Arkham games I always felt was very fleshed out, giving you mutiple ways to take out a room of goons unseen.

I picked up Borderlands Legendary Collection on Switch and played the first one for the first time. Boy was I missing out but the driving controls are some of the worst I've ever come across. It's like your blind date turned out to be a model but she has an extra ear on her forehead and you're really not into that.

Bought myself Death Road to Canada today as a treat and it's awesome as fuck.

I'm gonna see if I can figure out how to make custom character sprites so I can do playthroughs with lolcows.

Ayyyy turns out adding custom stuff for this game is real easy. Looks like I'm modding lolcows into this game, boys.

You got to trial and error Blood Money.
Yeah, it's one of those games where you always discover something new. Just wandering around levels and looking for button prompts or stuff to poison. Contracts is good for that, as well.

If all else fails, you can mow down everybody, so there's no need for a FAQ. The redneck wedding is actually less fun if you do it steathily. Try playing it with "Unchained" cranked up to full blast.

Is there any way you could be bothered making a set of lolcows and uploading the templates?
Possibly. I'm currently making a mod for Magi-chan Sonichu as a test to see if I can pull it off. It'll be a while before I can say for certain if I can make a proper lolcow-themed mod.

As for custom playable lolcows I can definitely whip up some designs when I've got a moment or two!

I’m kind of surprised they never made a sequel to NBA Hangtime. That game and NBA on NBC Showtime was the only time where I can say that there was something good that wasn’t just named NBA JAM.

Is the ps2 slim any good was trying to find the fat model but no luck (fat model that I had broke ) really don't want to buy it due to the issues it has but it's either the slim or 300$ ps2 fats that are badly damaged atleast will replace the coolant with a better one that doesn't make my ps2 feel like fire and also what was that game mode on one of the nba games that had power ups and looked Futuristic

I was browsing youtube when I saw this video. It's a play through without any commentary of an indie game that appears to be coming out soon.
"Agony of a dying MMO" is about the player base of a dying MMO. A great deal of the fake player characters are (poorly) voiced. The in game MMO looks like a weird marsh up of WW2 Online, Everquest and, second life.
As the video went on the voice acted characters went on about how he transitioned and how his parents gas lit him. Another character complains about how playable nazis made the community toxic for some reason.
At the very end the player character ends up at a poorly rendered military base with helicopters.
There are giant signs with hard to read text there as well...

1619336056201.png

The dialogue from the characters gets much more cringe worthy
"This is an end game raid, so we don't know what to expect" (The game is about to go down permanently and you haven't done this before?)
"So Nazis let's make these final hours ones to remember"
"Murder the lolcows"
"I live to terrorize lolcows"
"Does anyone else follow Elon Musk on Twitter? He's so cool"

I have it time stamped at the last segment but, the entire thing is really awful.

That's level is probably the most fun to run and gun. Dual silverballers and the tactical shotgun! I think the first time I played through it I just waited in the attic with a sniper rifle until I could see both targets. Yeah kind of boring.

Okay the guide I was using to mod DR2C ended up being outdated and there doesn't seem to be a better one out there because a ton of complex shit has been added to the special character codes. So it looks like a lolcow mod is a no-go for now. *sigh*

However that does not stop me from adding in custom playable characters (and it's actually possible to recruit your custom characters in the game so there's that). Anybody wanna nominate some lolcows they'd like to feed to zombies play as?

Every Hitman game has a set of clothes or sniper's nest which turns out to be a trap. The AI will always detect shots from the attic. However, I can still snipe the groom and then flee down one of the trapdoors and leave.

If you want SA rank, you usually need to get up close and personal. But I love to snipe whenever I can.

I eventually got silent assassin on that one. I think I remember it involving alligators and cake. Probably the easiest to sa in blood money is the casino when you figure out target patterns. I got to replay this in the near future.

It's not difficult on the whole, particulary when compared to 2 and Contracts. Both had hellish early levels.

It's a stealth game with a ranking system: it's as hard as you want it to be. For comparison, Snake Eater is piss-easy, apart from the bosses. I basically had to go shirtless in each area (apart from the labs) for it to pose a challenge. Single Action Army run is another good one. Popping Ocelot Units from a cliff and then twirling the gun afterwards.
