Welcome all

Hello all and welcome to my blog (this is one of the nicest things you will ever here me say), in which i will whine and be cynical about different things until you'll either want to put a bullet through your head or drown yourself in your own piss.

I am now Jooseman, the Artist formerly known as Jonith, and I have stopped using the name Jonith regularly (however do still have many accoun named Jonith, so go by both) as it got confusing, So call me Jooseman or Joose or whatever. Call me TwatBucket if it pleases you.

Our Youtube Channel

Anyway thats all from me, and also check out Rofling Officer Productions. He is a collaborater of mine.

Serious Sam 3 Review.
The first in The Rofling Officers youtube reviews, in which he looks at Serious Sam 3 and talks about it. You can also now hear his terrible mic.


Resistance 3 Rant.

Again due to messing up my order for a new mouse (I have it at the time of writing, but this intro was written when I did not), so still not having one till probably Monday, I cannot play any games on my PC again. However, this lead me to realise I have a whole collection of Playstation games I have wanted to play but never got around to, and the first one in this list was Resistance 3, the final in a trilogy which made me buy my Playstation in the first place.

Ah The Resistance series, the first one was one of the first games I got on the PS3 and was great. It mixed the fun shootyness of the likes of Serious Sam, and the story telling of (a not as good) Half Life in a blend as nice as Chocolate and cream combined in the Large Hadron Collider. Also it was set in Britain, which adds scores of points to any games I play.

Then there was Resistance 2, which was a bigger slip up than the Incredible Hulk falling over a banana Skin. It took away all of the fun parts of the first game and replaced them with the modern shooter style, probably because of how successful Call of Duty 4 had been. It also has a terrible story, to rival that of the Point and Click about a lampost, and by the end of it, you're hoping Nathan Hale takes a Shark to the balls. The game also seems to punish you in some places for running ahead, with the chameleon mobs, which come out of invisibility to attack you, however if you run too far ahead, they take you from behind (innuendos.) The fact that this game was better received than the first shows how most critics are bi-polar and have the intelligence of a lobotomised Llama.

The answer, yes and no. This game is schizophrenic and jumps around like a crack addled long jumper in how it wants to be taken. The first reason it is like this is because of the health system in the game. It has a non-regenerating health system, which is usually used to make a game fun, however the health system gives you less starting life than a crash test dummy, meaning that you are constantly in cover anyway, even though the game should not be encouraging that. A game needs to swing in one direction instead of both (like a bi sexual ha. ha. ha.) to give the maximum amount of fun.

This effect is also given at other parts in the game, mainly the cut scenes. Unlike Call of Duty, you can open your own doors in this game, so you have advanced to the intelligence of a flea living in a nuclear plant. However, the game constantly takes control away from you more than being put in solitary confinement. It is very jarring and unnecessary as the camera flies all the way across the level too show you where you need to go. Fuck you game.

The fact that you can have more than 2 guns is a great point of the game, because pulling guns out your arse like a prostitute pulls dildos is always fun. The best gun was either the freeze ray combined with the sledgehammer or the one which attaches spores to enemies blowing them up. More games need to use creative guns like these instead of giving AK 47's out like a paedophile gives out sweets.
I didn't play the multiplayer much, but it was ok when I played it, not the best. Also in the singleplayer, they basically copy and paste the Ravenholm level from Half Life 2 into it, but overall it is a pretty damn good game.

Random Thoughts


Last weekend me and the Rofling Officer played about an hour's worth of Serious Sam 3, while we talk about random crap over the background, which is basically what the podcast Beyond Stupid has become., because it felt more natural. The only problem is that I am a perfectionist, and constantly lose any interest and inspiration I had in editing it after listening to the poor quality which was shown in it, most prominently in the first episode, in which the Kamikazes easily drown out the Rofling Officers terrible mic, and makes it hard to hear what he is saying, however this weekend, I hope to do the best I can with it to make it listenable, and then start uploading them, about every day or every other day.

We have also been talking about other series we could do for the Youtube channel, and my ideas so far have been a Skyrim Mod Spotlight, hosted by just me, due to the creation kit coming out. (I may also move on to Morrowind mods, even if it's an old game, because it's so good, and then maybe other games.) A playthrough for walking from one side of the Daggerfall world to the other, a series from the Rofling Officer in which he talks about his random thoughts on a certain subject, and finally some Killing Floor levels (in which we might be joined by a friend of ours, who is better at gaming than us.)

Crusader Kings 2

I just played the demo for this game, and it is extremely good. I don't want to elaborate as I may save it for a review I do at a later date, but because of it, there is a good chance I will buy this game (also I love to support Paradox, who are true PC developers and Publishers, even if they do have some fondness of bugs.)

If you want the best description of the game, think of a Less Fantasy version of the Song of Ice and Fire series, and compared to some of Paradoxes other games, it has a learning curve which isn't like running headfirst into a brick wall constantly.

Guild Wars 2 beta

Applications for easily my most anticipated game's beta opened for 48 hours yesterday. Guild Wars 2. The game just looks so good and fun, and I have been look for a good MMO to get into after quitting playing Wow due to getting bored.

I will probably play Norn when the game actually comes out, but if I do get into the beta, which is already a 0.0001% chance already, I won't be able to talk about it for a long time due to the NDA which it has on it.

Games I am looking forward too

The game War of The Roses looks really, good (the post that The Rofling Officer linked is here) and seems to have an amazing melee combat system placed into a Battlefield style multiplayer game set in the most obvious setting compared to the name, The War of the Roses. However all this makes me want Dark Souls on the PC already.

Another game I am looking forward to is Gettysburg Armoured Warfare, like The Rofling Officer. Who doesn't want to play as a steampunk confederacy with Tanks and Guns. Also it's £7, 7 FREAKING POUNDS.

Youtube reply girls (First posted by me on the OMFG Cata, Shaboozey forums)

They are making a mockery of youtube and appear in the sidebar for a lot of video now a days and frankly, words can't describe the hate which I show for them. They make unoriginal, uninformative, terrible, content which nobody wants to watch that just gets views because they have their cleavage shown (and the content is ripped off from those who posted it in the first place) but are still end up being partnered by youtube (And in one case, Machinima.)

If you want to go read the Yogscast's statement, it is here http://yogscast.com/showthread.php?50402-quot-Replygirls-quot-ruining-YouTube

However, if you don't feel like reading because it cause brain hurt, then please tweet the one drafted up on there for you: @Youtube @YTCreators please can you combat "replygirls" ruining YT and make it a nicer place to be! Further info: tinyurl.com/replygirl

Please help get them removed from youtube (it won't work, considering how big Youtube is, but it couldn't hurt.)
Also don't go on the videos to spam them, as the higher the comment amount, the higher up the ratings list they go, and the more they get noticed, leading to them getting more money, and as it is consistantly shown as being an easy way to make money, encourages other people to take up the same thing as well.
