  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Diddy Kong Racing 2 rumor leak blog behind the scenes on the General Discussion board.

    I would like another Diddy Kong Racing, but if they ruined that it would be like stabbing my childhood in the windpipe.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Episode 5 Discussion (spoilers) on the The Wolf Among Us board.

    As someone who bought the game on the midweek deal and played through all 5 episodes in a handful of sessions, I liked it. The setting, a lot of the characters (and the music. Gotta love that synth) ...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Quick Look: Divinity: Original Sin.

    @eternalgamer2: The difference between Dan and Jeff is that Dan still likes Nintendo wholeheartedly. Also he's from the midwest and apparently doesn't know what Mutton is?

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Previously On: The Wolf Among Us - "Cry Wolf" on the The Wolf Among Us board.

    As someone who played all of these episodes back-to-back over the course of two days I got most of the implications of the last conversation with Nerissa. I also ripped the Crooked Man's head off, be...

    Sooooo... I clearly missed something magical.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Sega Pleases, Enrages Alien Fans With Isolation's Pre-Order DLC [UPDATED] on the Alien: Isolation board.

    The upside to all of this is that most pre-order DLC isn't that great, so while actually making bonus missions based on Alien is a great bit of fanservice, consider me less than optimistic about the ...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic The surprising intricacies of binary politics, or how I became the worst monster in history on the Divinity: Dragon Commander board.

    It's a pity that the actual RTS part of Dragon Commander isn't all that great, because I love the dumb political stuff you can get up to in your airship.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 07/08/2014.

    @viking_funeral: I feel like the comparison floated around a lot for Divinity:OS is that it is like Ultima VII with its turn-based combat and serious levels of reactivity.Either way, it's pretty fanta...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Quick Look: Long Night.

    This game wouldn't be out of place as a C-tier Resident Evil clone on the PS2... which is why I sort of love that it exists in 2014.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Now Released...Impressions? on the Divinity: Original Sin board.

    @igniz12: Well, if there was ever a year to get into RPGs that play like they came out in 1998, this would be the year. Wasteland 2 comes out at the end of the summer and Obsidian seems pretty confide...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic So, does anyone remember me? on the Off-Topic board.

    Sort of? I'm going to be honest, I barely pay attention to anyone who isn't in my little circle or a major, ubiquitous poster.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic When is the content coming? on the General Discussion board.

    Don't worry, once the wheels of the premium content machine spin up again (and I wouldn't be surprised if that starts happening soon) we'll get threads from non-subscribers complaining that there is t...

    Love the Djunglevral set-up on Dan.

    @fredchuckdave: I sorta liked RE6 and will defend it up to a point, but I would not call it a good game under most circumstances. My point was more that Capcom seemingly doesn't have any idea where it...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic the ridiculous "potato salad" kickstarter on the Off-Topic board.

    As someone who once contributed a dollar to the project known as Super Drake Tracker 2000 EX, I can't in good conscience condemn people for contributing to a stupid internet joke.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Surprise! That Game Was Awesome on the General Discussion board.

    The last time I was genuinely surprised about how much I liked a random game was probably the original Quest For Glory when I played it last year. The other big recent example of me picking up a rando...
