WTF Wednesday 06
For $10 I think I’d rather go have real tea…
For $10 I think I’d rather go have real tea…
This game has been in the news a LOT lately, and one look at the title as well as the game description can pretty much tell you why. The fact that steam let this game remain on their platform for so long has been another point of concern.
Sure, we like to think we’re open minded and free spirited, giving developers the ability to publish unique and awesome games – but when do they cross a line? How much is just too much? This is certainly one that (IMO) just goes way too far to get a rise out of society.
I also wonder what the reaction would have been if the game play had included both men and women. Would the same outcries be heard? I would hope so.
Sometimes you really should think, just because you CAN do something, does NOT mean you should.
Welcome back to another weekly installment of “WTF Wednesday” where I talk about a game the developers didn’t ask if they should make, before they decided they could.
The game for this week is called My Name is Mayo – and I know, it has mostly positive reviews, but hey it’s opinion and why not count mine. You have to pay for the game which is the main reason I’m putting this game up for WTF Wednesday.
It’s a clicker game, and there are lots of them out there. That means literally all you’re doing is clicking on a jar of mayo. Over. And Over. And Over (Over 8000 times). Sometime stuff is added to the screen as you click, and little sayings pop up, but in the end you’re just clicking and you’re paying for the right to do so.
This game preys on those gamer’s who are obsessed with achievement hunting, and sure developers are entitled to compensation for their time – but come on, really?
This week we’re featuring two games that are apparently made by different but the same people. What The Heck, Dude? and Dude Simulator. The best comment is the one pictured above that says “you can figure that it’s just one dev that doesn’t understand how to make a playable game, but knows how to sell the same game twice.”
Apparently you run around punching things in the first game – and that’s all there is to it. Who doesn’t like to solve everything with violence?! Sound like a game you want to play? Maybe not.
The description of the game on steam is pretty self explanatory:
What The Heck Dude? is a drunk fight simulator with realistic physics. You are going to find yourself in different life situations, and every time you will have to start a fight. No matter where are you and what you are doing, your only task is to spoil the event and initiate a brawl.
It’s time for another post about steam games where developers didn’t think about whether or not they should before they went off and did it. Today’s gem is called xmas zombie rampage 2 – that’s right folks, this is a sequel. In it, John Iron is back and he’s a marine killing machine. Whether that means he kills marines, or he is a marine, we don’t really know.
What we do know is Christmas presents and girlie pictures have been stolen by zombies and it’s time to strike back. I’m guessing from the screenshots the thieves have decided to decorate the woods with these items…
I’m not sure which is harder to believe, that there are zombies who care about girlie pictures and Christmas presents, or that this game is selling for $19.99 CAD in the steam store.
Every so often me or a friend will come across a game in steam that just has to be shared. Not because it’s particularly good, but because it’s such a crazy game it makes you pause and wonder “wtf” – so welcome to “wtf gaming” a (hopefully) weekly column where we look at a few of these gems.
This week it’s a game called Heat. I’m not going to go into the game too much but here are some quotes that will give you a pretty good idea about what this game entails.
Go Forth and Multiply Start a family with other players or NPCs. During the process of love making, the male will have a chance of making the female pregnant. Once pregnant, the female will birth a newborn. The newborn grows to become a baby, the baby then grows up to be a child, the child eventually becomes an adult.
A second option is to adopt from an orphanage by purchasing a baby basket in the shipping catalog. The baby will be inside the basket delivered to you. Adoption is very expensive, but provides a guaranteed outcome, whereas the first option may not reliably result in pregnancy due to the possibility for weak seed.
Once your kids become adults you can equip them with outfits, gear, and weapons. They can help protect you when you are online. However, other players may decide to capture and restrain your adult kin, so best keep them packing heat. Seats of Power As President, you own the Whitehouse, a section of land south of the monument, one intern, a golden gun, and two secret service NPCs. You also get to set and collect a President’s land tax. The Sheriff gets a deputy, and also some firepower to deliver justice. As Chief, you have a section of land, a grand tepee, and 3 warriors. The Governor gets the Cottonwood Plantation, plenty of farm seed, and 3 peons.
Sound like a game that interests you? It’s in early access over on steam.. Personally? I’ll take a hard pass.
