I love Monster Hunter World's Palicos. My feline companion rides with me into battle, heals me when I need healing (sometimes), and occasionally even puts a monster to sleep. He looks like kind of a smarmy wise-ass, as most cats are. But I still know in my heart of hearts that dogs are the superior pets, and I love that someone went to great lengths to replace Monster Hunter's palicos with pups in the Canine Palico mod "for those who prefer dogs. Now with sounds!"There are three things I love about this mod.1. I can't stop laughing at this picture of a bunch of dogs in armor. Adorable.2. The earnestness with which modder UberGrainy explains this mod's creation: "I'm not particularly a cat or dog fan, but I know some people wanted a dog partner instead of a cat, so I wanted to see if this kind of MOD is possible. I was trying to make it look like a Shiba dog, but I think the neck needs to be a lot fatter, which causes clipping with most armor. So I reverted the neck to a thinner … [Read more...] about Turn Monster Hunter’s cat pals into man’s true best friend with the Canine Palico mod
Wanted a best friend
GameInformer has given a lot of special coverage on things you should know about the upcoming Spiderman video game. The latest is that The Spiderman PS4 Art Director would like to see a Crossover with Kingdom Hearts, which is not insignificant. This announcement is not trivial, as part of an interview for GameInformer, the creative director of Spiderman PS4 answered an amazing question about Kingdom Hearts. Bryan Intihar of Insomniac Games said he would like to see a crossover of his own kind because he is a big fan of Kingdom Hearts and Disney in general. “It would be great, they have to start putting the worlds of Marvel in there (talking about Kingdom Hearts), they’ve added characters from Pixar, Star Wars, and why not Marvel? It would be great to have Sora dressed in Spiderman, it would be great” A crossover of the genre would be really weird but funny to see. Spiderman is a very friendly character with a lot of humor he would fit perfectly into the world of … [Read more...] about Creative Director Of Spiderman Wants A Kingdom Hearts Crossover
Super Seducer is a game made by self-described “pick-up artist” (PUA) Richard La Ruina, aimed at teaching straight men so-called seduction techniques for attracting women. The result is a farcical and disastrous laughing stock of a game. But PUAs aren’t a funny joke, rather they’re a frightening reality of a deeply misogynistic culture that in its less PR-friendly moments has frequently advocated sexual assault against women. Super Seducer is clearly intended to be part of the PR exercise, an attempt to portray PUAs as just guys looking for ways to convince girls to like them, albeit through techniques that are primarily focused around lying and manipulation. It’s an attempt to put a friendly mask on an ugly face. What’s so peculiar about it is that it’s not only bad at its attempts to do this, but it’s cringingly bad at everything. La Ruina here is so demonstrably terrible at his professed talent, so revealingly incapable of holding even … [Read more...] about Super Seducer is a blancmange of ineptitude and misogyny
Hello chum! Sit down and have a nice glass of water and a pack of Bombay mix. That’s how we greet our closest friends on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. This week, best pals John and Brendan discuss how friendship is handled in videogames, and what characters felt most like close buddies. John felt a kinship with Alistair from Dragon Age: Origins, and sees Lydia from Skyrim as Wilson the football from Castaway. Whereas Brendan felt a habitual closeness to the undead woman in Dark Souls who sold him poisonous arrows. Takes all sorts, really. John also enthuses about animated adventure Chuchel and a new retro shooter from 3D Realms, Ion Maiden. And Brendan comes up with some fictional friend-forming scenarios between iconic videogame characters. Would JC Denton get along with Adam Jenson? Listen to find out. You can listen above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later.
