• Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Which playable character is your favorite so far? on the Abyss Odyssey board.

    I want to like Ghost Monk, I've even played as him the most, but I find he gets knocked out of attacks super easily, possibly because both his windup and recovery animations can cause a lot of problem...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Hidden Gems on Steam on the Steam board.

    When I saw this topic, my mind immediately went to Flotilla by Blendo Games. It's a turn based space combat game, with randomized space exploration sort of like FTL, but before it was cool and not as ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic The new game from the Zeno Clash people is out now! on the Abyss Odyssey board.

    I played a bunch of multiplayer with about half the roster unlocked, and it was fun, but I think it has some balance issues. Projectile seem really strong given the generally flat map design, and som...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic The new game from the Zeno Clash people is out now! on the Abyss Odyssey board.

    @pie: I'd agree with that. There are the 3 difficulty "levels", but those are really just different paths through the game, with mostly the same enemies and tilesets, just better AI. The devs said, t...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic The new game from the Zeno Clash people is out now! on the Abyss Odyssey board.

    I'm really loving it so far. The soundtrack is especially amazing. Somehow I didn't know that souls had separate health bars, but the game's going a lot better now that I do know that. I fought the Fi...

    @raven10: Thanks, I'll definitely check those out. Paprika was one I'd been thinking about too, but I hadn't ever heard of the other ones you mentioned.

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Anime Films For Anime Haters on the Off-Topic board.

    I am a self professed anime hater, usually because of the art style, but also I hate stereotypical anime characters/plots. For example, apart from the skeleton man, One Piece looks aggressively terrib...

    -Georgie and Vivian died for me too. I left Georgie there though.-I handcuffed the crooked man, but not before knocking away the gun and punching him.-I sub-zero'd the crooked man. I was just going t...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Game of Thrones Season 4 - The Thread on the Off-Topic board.

    @ssully: Well I guess my issue is the fact that these things don't really have enough immediate consequences. Robb and the Stark army in particular never seemed to have accomplished much at all, and ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Game of Thrones Season 4 - The Thread on the Off-Topic board.

    @pr1mus: I'd agree with this. The first instance of a major character death made sense from a narrative standpoint because it served to drive the plot forward. This most recent event and the big one ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Witcher 3 Live Stream on June 5th on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board.

    If that galaxy thing works like I think it does, it could be pretty huge for them in terms of expanding their catalogue. Also automatic game updates is great addition. Here's hoping the client just wo...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic A Defence of Resident Evil Survival Horror Controls. on the Resident Evil board.

    I agree that tank controls in early survival horror is perfectly understandable, and often the best option. I completely agree with your camera angle argument, the standout example in my mind being a...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Worth Reading: 05/23/2014 on the General Discussion board.

    I actually quite agree with the Far Cry 4 article, and with the idea that games are often criticized for their attempts to deal with complex subject matter before the full context of the game's plot i...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls 2 Lore Discussion/Speculation Thread (spoilers) on the Dark Souls II board.

    @rocketboot: Huh, wasn't aware of that stuff. The theories I saw people making about the door were about more direct links between the Lost Sinner and Old Iron King. What you said seems like the easi...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls 2 Lore Discussion/Speculation Thread (spoilers) on the Dark Souls II board.

    @karkarov: Well the thing I'm saying is that it's hard to tell what may or may not matter. The gravekeepers indeed are a weird enemy to be placed in earthen peak, but earthen peak and harvest valley ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls 2 Lore Discussion/Speculation Thread (spoilers) on the Dark Souls II board.

    Oh man, didn't think my weird Lost Sinner idea would be so contentious. I think the statue is an interesting link, but there is a problem with such links. If we consider the repetition of environment...

    Here's a dumb idea I've been thinking about that doesn't totally work, but makes more sense to me than the other theories, so excuse me while I ramble. The Lost Sinner is Aldia.The biggest problem wit...
