About games and gaming thereof!


Chainsaw Massacre (Aliens Edition)

Sorry I haven’t been posting for the past few days. My attention has been in a bunch of places at once, and on top of that writer’s block has hit me pretty hard. I got a bunch of games during the summer sale and I’m having a hard time picking one to talk about.

But I recently decided to stop being a cheapskate and shell out for Fraps, and holy crap, Fraps is amazing.

Well, compared to Livestream Procaster it’s amazing. I’m no connoisseur of video recording software, mind you. But Fraps is really a great tool. It can record virtually any game out there, from Doom to Magicka to even Windows Minesweeper. It shows you your framerate, it can automatically take screenshots, and recording videos hardly hurts the framerate (depending on the game). And of course, the quality is much better.

So I figured I’d have fun with it and record a little something for you guys.

I’m aware I already talked about this game, but in all honesty I think I was a bit unfair to it. It’s quite immersive and fun, and I think it’s better than the original Doom. And it does have some interesting moments. But for the  most part the whole “horror” thing just isn’t working for me.

I like horror. I’d go so far as to say that I love horror. I’m pretty sure the only true horror game I’ve ever played was Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but that game was fantastic. It gave me some of the biggest thrills I’ve ever had. I feel like that game has spoiled me to a degree. Now whenever these other games try to scare me they only make me roll my eyes.
