    Man, this is a great quick look. Laughs (and MURRRRDERRRRR) abound!Unfortunate that this game is so janky and lacking in design, because I think there is a sound concept here.

    Thanks for doing this public service, Drew. Now when I see all the ads for these games in the Metro, I can feel okay about being a little sad.

    Haven't played through this since it came out on the N64, but I remember loving it. It's uncanny how many of the quests and details Dan went through in this Quick Look that I still remember.All the c...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hand of Fate.

    This seems cool - a hybrid of different genres with some really nice presentation and VO. Apparently the console ports seem to have performance issues, which sucks, I was thinking about getting this ...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Review.

    When this game was announced, I had the concern mentioned in this review about not being able to look at the TV while playing...I guess that's only needed for multiplayer and maybe if someone else is ...

    I'm basically the complete opposite of the Dans (and Jeff) when it comes to drinking. I probably end up having a half-dozen drinks a week, but from having a nice beer every night with my dinner after...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message in the forum topic Hotline Miami and Spelunky merged?. on the PlayStation 4 board

    @n7 This seems to be an occasional problem on the PS4 when downloading a couple items at once. I had this happen with Road Not Taken and Spelunky back when I first got my PS4.The solution seems to be:...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Quick Look: Raven's Cry.

    Can't believe how fucking lackluster some of the VO is in this game. And I was laughing my ass off at all that goofy ambient dialogue. Yarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!@pudge said: @dr_mantas said: I'm getting...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Quick Look: Apotheon.

    @maxopower: I'm glad to hear someone else is really digging this game, I'm loving it so far. I've completed the Demeter and Hades stuff up to this point. I agree that Hades probably wasn't the most i...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Ubisoft's Fancy Version of Risk Is Now Available for Xbox One and PS4.

    Yeah, the story mode in Risk: Factions was surprisingly good. I feel like this will be Tetris all over again; a tried-and-true classic turned into a broken game by Ubisoft.

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Apotheon Coming to PC and PlayStation 4 February 3rd.

    I adore this art style, and I'm a sucker for Greek mythology too. Hopefully the game plays as well as it looks! It's gonna be on PS+, so I have no excuse not to give it a shot.

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Playing with Fire.

    Very well-written review. I bought this over the holiday when it was super cheap on the Wii U, and I think your opening sentence sums up my thoughts exactly - a very simplistic game that still stuck ...

    Looks awesome, would not have known about this game without the QL. I like all the different options for mashing up the two games together.Play-Asia seems to be cleaned out by the lot of you, so I end...
