• Brackstone posted a message on the post Quick Look: D4.

    @gablekevin: I'm a huge fan of both Dark Souls and Deadly Premonition, I love them about equally. If you're a Souls fan and not a Swery fan, sure, the choice is easy. But from where I'm sitting, it a...

  • Brackstone posted a message on the post Quick Look: D4.

    I pretty much have to weigh up whether I want an Xbox One for D4, or a PS4 for Bloodborne. This quicklook is making that decision so much harder, especially once that tall hungry fellow showed up and...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Standing Silent in the Echo Chamber. on the General Discussion board

    I pretty much agree with every the TC said. There's little to no actual debate or discussion happening with these issues, and that's what has exacerbated it all. Polygon just published an article that...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What's your GOTY so far?. on the General Discussion board

    The Banner Saga by far, followed by Abyss Odyssey and if it counts, Paper Sorcerer.

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Which upcoming horror game do you plan on playing this October?. on the General Discussion board

    For me, if I'm going to get one it's going to be The Evil Within. Even if it's got issues, I can't see it being a bad game, at the very least it'll be a pretty solid survival horror game.To me, Alien...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Which franchises did you play each entry to completion?. on the General Discussion board

    This year alone I went through the entire Legacy of Kain series (Soul Reaver is kinda janky but overall the series holds up really well), the entire Brothers in Arms series (doesn't hold up as well a...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What is the worse AAA developer for story?. on the General Discussion board

    @chrissedoff: I felt a little bad for not really going into detail about why I thought Quantic Dreams and Kojima were bad, but you pretty much nailed all my thoughts on Kojima.With regards to Quantic...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What is the worse AAA developer for story?. on the General Discussion board

    For me it's without a doubt Quantic Dream. For games so focused on story to have such absolutely abysmal writing is simply baffling.I'm also not big on Kojima. I feel like he and Quantic Dream have a ...

    @ford_dent: I didn't even know you could die from infected wounds. I only ever died in combat or from overdosing on meds. Oh, and that one time I fell off the Polyhedron. I might end up playing the H...

    @ghostiet: The problem is, there's very little moral choice to be had. At no point did I feel like I made a tough moral decision, and at no point did I feel like doing something morally challenging w...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Gods Will Be Watching, But They've Chilled Out. on the Gods Will Be Watching board

    As others have said, this developer seems to misunderstand what the problem with their game was. In Dark Souls, when you fail, everything stays the same, so you can learn from your mistakes and succee...

  • Brackstone posted a message on the post Weirdness Abounds in Clockwork Empires.

    I've had my eye on this for a while, and it's really looking great, but this also seems like the type of game where I should just wait until the full release to play it (unlike something Crawl, where...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro Working on New Silent Hill. on the Silent Hill board

    Kojima makes me worried, Del Toro makes me excited, and I'm mostly indifferent to Norman Reedus.I think ideal situation for me would be Kojima directing cutscenes and such (he's fantastic at directin...

    @video_game_king: Well there's a big difference between grizzled middle aged white guys who look like Joel, and grizzled middle aged white guys who look like Kane and Lynch. Hell, on release there wer...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Video game characters that look like real people. on the General Discussion board

    They're maybe not average looking, but one thing I always appreciated about the Kane and Lynch games is that those guys absolutely do not look like your usual video game protagonists. All the leads in...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls 1 is superior to 2. on the Dark Souls board

    For me, the issue is that DS2 fixed most of the problems DS1 had, but introduced so many of it's own or just didn't do things nearly as well that I don't hesitate to say DS1 is the superior game.I t...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Yeah, so pup this game? (Chapter 1 & 2 spoilers). on the Gods Will Be Watching board

    For those mad about the randomization, it only seems to get worse over time. I'm on the fifth mission now, and while I do like the game, the random elements become more prominent as time goes on, and...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Mad Max: Fury Road trailer drops at SDCC 14...and, WOW. on the Off-Topic board

    That was a really good trailer. Initially I thought Charlize Theron would be the villain, but it's looking more like the villain will be Hugh Keays-Byrne, which is the best possible thing.

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic The Last of Us movie?. on the The Last of Us board

    If Bill is still a character in the movie, they'd better cast W. Earl Brown again. That's pretty much the only opinion I have on the movie.
