Extra Life: Brad's at Home, Alone
You can now filter search results with text. Example: "person: john" will search only person pages for "john".
Platinum Games' sequel delivers nuanced, non-stop action that stands among the best in its genre.
Driveclub looks nice and has a couple of good ideas about handling leaderboard challenges, but the core of it--actually driving a car--drags the entire thing down.
It's been a while since the xenomorph was worth being scared of, and while Alien: Isolation runs a little long, it's a hellacious ride.
The game is actually called One Upon Light, and was already in the wiki.
Martial artists ripping their clothes when they power up is a decades old anime/manga trope. As for the difficulty, I found concentration mode invaluable and using hope fragments to buy skills from Monomi a great help. I'm not that great of a gamer, but for the most part the "normal" difficulty didn't give me too much trouble.
EDIT: Also Patrick, not that it's a big thing, but Danganronpa actually comes from the Spike side of Spike Chunsoft.
Dan watching Jin-Roh, can't imagine that going well. I mean, it's one of my favorite movies of all time, but it's also very slow and very dense, and I can't imagine it's particularly close to what Dan wants from a movie. A least it's pretty much as far away as you can get from negative stereotypes of anime.
And Patrick said you couldn't do a proper Quick Look of a visual novel!
Dan going all in on the bad ending I see...
@crommi: What, no encouragement to join the Magicka 2 Web Ring? I am disappointed.
Surprised to hear Dan liked Devil Kings. I wonder if he knows the third game in the series was released in the west as Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes on the PS3 and Wii.
The "Sam Raimi" effect is in Xena because Sam Raimi produced the show, and it was full of his trademark touches.
Hmm, healthy snacks... Sounds like a mailbag idea if I ever heard one.
All this really makes me want to go buy the original on GOG. Too bad the only Sierra games you can get these days are the DOS versions.
Most of the classic Sierra games have ScummVM support now though, which makes them run natively under modern Windows far better than the old Win 3.1/95 versions ever would. Sadly, Gabriel Knight is one of the few games that aren't properly supported yet, but if you want to mess around with Space Quest or Kings Quest again, ScummVM is definitively the way to go.
