• animathias posted a message in the forum topic Should Giant Bomb reviews include a score?. on the General Discussion board

    I think all video game review scores should be abolished. At the end of the day, it's an arbitrary number that not only decides the development team's bonuses on Metacritic, but it also completely neg...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic Ubisoft Removes Upcoming PC Games From Steam [UPDATED]. on the Steam board

    That's... silly. Isn't uPlay required to play Ubisoft Steam purchases anyway? So they're not gaining uPlay users, instead, they're just cutting out millions of possible customers to ensure a 100% cut ...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic Do you agree Dark Souls is superior?. on the Dark Souls II board

    I think it depends which one you played first. A lot of people say that DS2 is significantly easier than DS1, but I put forth that playing DS1 made you way more prepared for 2. I played 2 first and th...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic Is it still too early to go next gen?. on the General Discussion board

    Just base it on exclusives. If one of the consoles has a good lineup of games out or out soon that you want to play, then pick it up. If not, I'd save up for a PC. That would give you more bang for yo...

    They should do another contest for that HD DVD drive. First place gets the drive and their choice of 5-10 movies. The rest get a random HD DVD. xDAlso.. I've always been under the impression that mai...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic Is Claire B worth playing after Leon A?. on the Resident Evil 2 board

    If I remember right, there are separate Leon and Claire playthroughs that are more like a NG+ mode. I don't remember the differences of the A/B modes, but I do know that you haven't experienced the ac...

    Nah. As far as world news like Ferguson is concerned, it was the best way to get news about what was going on. Instead of having to make checking a news site part of my daily routine, just checking Tw...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic Your one "go to" or safety item.. on the Spelunky board

    The Jetpack is definitely that item for me. If I get it before the Black Market, I start ghosting levels to comfortably buy the Ankh, since usually my deaths are at the hands of angry shopkeepers. Bas...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic No "The Sims 4" reviews allowed until AFTER release.. on the The Sims 4 board

    This doesn't surprise me. Everything I've read about The Sims 4 points to it being far inferior to the last two main games. If they let reviews go out before release, I'd wager they would lose a sign...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic I don't understand Roguelikes. on the Roguelike board

    It's kind of hard to explain the appeal when the entire appeal of these games (for myself) is the journey. Constantly learning new things about the games, finding new items, and learning new lessons a...

  • animathias posted a message in the forum topic Remember when they said this would have a PC version?. on the Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time board

    Yeah, it's kinda sad. Keep in mind that this is all after it took so long for the sequel to even materialize, when the original PvZ definitely wasn't a flop. PvZ 2's title is even a subtle jab at that...
