Why is grass green?

On my way to work, I ran over a hedgehog. Of course, I exited my cat and quickly muttered an apology before heading back off. When I got to work, everybody kept giving me weird looks, as if they knew what I had done prior to arriving. Nevertheless, I soldiered on despite the obvious whispering and backstabbing. After work, as we all were heading over to the parking lot, my friend Billy approached me with a concerned look on his face. He placed a sweaty hand on my shoulder and asked, "Is everything okay? You've been acting weird today. Especially considering how you came to work today." I immediately knew then, that they all had known about the hedgehog. I didn't know how, but they did. I nervously let out a moan before sprinting over to my cat. I quickly patted his head before hopping onto his back and riding off into the unknown.

Sort of what I actually wanted to say, but decided not to. Lol.

Doesn't really explain the constant comparisons, unless the others were made by other people and I'm mistaking them for you.

Why even compare this to Endmaster's stories? I vaguely remember you also saying that you liked Kiel's stories better too. Just wondering.

Got this and The Division a few days ago, both at half price. I liked Primal, only issue with it being that it felt like the other two Far Cry games, just without guns. Also, once you've upgraded most of your gear, the game becomes WAY too easy.

Welcome and enjoy your stay.

Anyone heard about this game before? on 6/27/2015 11:05:45 AM

Wow, I'm surprised you, of all people, haven't heard of it. I played a bit, got bored, then stopped. The execution scenes were pretty weak - even my seven year old nephew asked "Was that it?" after most of the executions. You generally also get bored of all the killing after a short while. I feel these reviews I got from Wikipedia pretty much sum up the game:

GameSpot felt that the gameplay of Hatred lacked variation, arguing that the game "fails even at being dangerous." Similarly, Jim Sterling, while criticizing the tone, concluded that "worse than that – we got a damn boring game" Rock, Paper, Shotgun felt that the "most of all, [Hatred] fails to be a controversial, shocking experience". Chris Carter of Destructoid was also critical of the one-note gameplay, while also reporting technical issues on release. Richard Cobbett of The Guardian described the controversy as being "about the feuding around the game rather than the game itself", calling the final product a "a bland monochrome rehash" of Postal.
