I'm pretty pleased with what I've accomplished over nearly an hour of running back and forth. I drop the hose, take a final victory lap to survey my work, and then pick up the still-unconscious victim and plop him in front of the extremely patient medic. The game, clearly impressed with my efforts, gives me a little cutscene so I can revel for a few final moments in what I've done here: … [Read more...] about Firefighting Simulator has infinitely long hoses, so I filled a neighborhood with them

Andy Chalk: The Temple of Trials in Fallout 2. Basically you're given a stick and thrown naked into a cave complex filled with giant ants and scorpions, and you have to fight your way through it in order to prove you've got the stones to actually play the damn game. The whole thing sucks, it's a plodding, grinding, save-scumming pain in the ass, and it's got nothing to do with the story—it's an entirely separate tutorial-slash-torture chamber that has no connection to anything. But if you want to play Fallout 2 then you have to power through it. This is the main reason I have never successfully replayed Fallout 2. … [Read more...] about Which game has the most brutal beginning?
