The Languid Gamer vs. Fallout 3

The Languid Gamer vs Game Stores

Recently, I was in the mood for a little cape-and-cowl-fueled moonlighting, so I decided to (finally) check out Batman: Arkham Origins. However, when I went to the Xbox 360 Marketplace to inquire about a price, the amount shown was a negative $1.00. "This can't be right" I said to myself in a rational tone.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Gets Collectibles Right

I was getting through Wolfenstein: The New Order at a fairly decent pace until I hit the final boss, Deathshead. I must have tried to take him down at least twenty times across three different play sessions, and came up short each time. It was seriously one of the most frustrating and infuriating encounters I've ever experienced. I was playing … [Read More...]
