    What an excellent GOTY series so far. This might well end up being the best one yet by the end. Man, these vignettes are fucking amazing!Very well done.

    @gaspower: Fair point. It's hard to try and keep in mind that there's no such thing as "the internet", just untold amounts of voices and perspectives. GB just tended to have a nice, moderate, open-mi...

    I didn't expect Civ: Beyond Earth to be unimpressive enough for me to not bother buying it for now. I do remember that odd Civ 4: Colonization release, which was similarly safe and vanilla, though. Ei...

  • Baal_Sagoth posted a message in the forum topic Year of the Games, not Game of the Year. on the General Discussion board

    Game of the Year is a surprisingly broad category if you really think about it. And I like more of its elements than I dislike honestly.It's good filler for a time of year when there are consistently...

    @johntunoku: I understand, but my main concern is the "grind" (or whatever we want to call it) that is the result of death not being permanent and the stakes in Souls being ultimately really low. Add ...

    @dave_tacitus: Absolutely! I'm in the same boat with many overly ambitious RPGs. I can deal with a lot of jank for a high upside but with action games I'm personally a lot more picky, especially when...

    Had Namco and From Software shown competence and professionalism before I'd be easy to classify this as an idiotic, but hopefully short-lived error. Taking into consideration their prior clueless and...

    @mclargepants: Regarding the second case: I'd definitely include games you don't own because you only played with friends but still consider to be amongst your greatest gaming experiences that year. ...

    Didn't forget it, didn't cease to really like it. There's just something really cool about that Supergiant style. I think ultimately I like the storytelling just as much as Bastion in its own way but...

  • Baal_Sagoth posted a message in the forum topic Hatred - A game which just might garner some... attention.. on the Hatred board

    Probably a wise decision to leave the game up for now. Not because it has a good chance to grow into something worthwhile but simply because the reasons for taking it down seemed unclear and arbitrary...
