• beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Quick Look: Box Boy!.

    This game is fantastic and a steal at $5. It's pretty lengthy in terms of number of levels, 17 main worlds w/5-8 levels each (if I recall correctly), and a handful of waaay harder post-credits bonus l...

    Love the look of this! My only concern is that all the collectibles and notes seem to encourage exploration, but the matches mechanic basically offsets that, as far as I can tell. They seem to be at ...

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

    I'm enjoying this game quite a bit. I'm glad they tried to mix things up a bit with the sequel; as noted by many, I think some of the changes work better than others. The bigger levels aren't necessa...

    I'm requesting an alias for Kick & Fennick. Adding an alias of "Kick and Fennick" would help searchability, as I was having a heck of a time finding it earlier today. The game is also named "Kick...

    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.

  • beard_of_zeus posted a message on the post Quick Look: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D.

    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...

    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...

    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 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.
