@giant_gamer: Yup. That is a total fuck you to the people who bought the PC version and all the DLC at launch, particularly with the borderline bait and switch they pulled with dumbing down the graphics in the month before launch. They need to offer the DX11 upgrade to the DX9 owners for a steep discount at a bare minimum or they are going to have a major split in the community. I'm not buying this game for a third time just to get what they promised me on PS3 and PC when I pre-ordered both versions. The Souls series is probably my favorite in gaming at the moment, too.

Entitled much? They didn't promise you anything.

I'm waiting for my wife to let me buy a good joystick before I pick up Elite Dangerous. But by then, the full game will have launched. I'd say that a good time to ask for friends would be after the game launches. :p

If it weren't for Dan, there'd be no content on the site. I hope this is because Jeff and Brad are so busy with running Giant Bomb that they can't be bothered to make content. It's also great to have someone who legitimately enjoys the kind of things that Jeff hates. I can't wait to see the Jeff+Dan quick look of Yoshi's Wooly World. :D

Libra is one of the best first treasure room items (or Eden starter items). I'm not entirely sure how the balancing of stats works, but having a bunch of pickup items during the first chapter can be incredibly useful.

I had picked up Soy Milk on one run... this makes it so you do minimal damage, but your tear rate skyrockets. You essentially fire out hundreds of little tears. I picked up Libra on the next floor and was excited because balancing attributes would counteract the damage reduction... but Libra didn't seem to apply to Soy Milk. :(

I know some people hate it, but I love soy milk. By itself, it's maybe not that great - but just before, I had soy milk, mixed with quad shot, mixed with scythe tears. That was just insane.

Soy Milk with the three dollar bill is pretty fun. Occasionally seeing hundreds of little scythes is very satisfying.

"Superfluous"

It's always been my favorite word. There are so many synonyms for it that even its existence is superfluous.

Valve should blacklist Double Fine and prevent them from doing Early Access ever again.

At this point, every new Pokemon release is exactly the same game as the last one. Every single one. Now that game is fantastic, but I'm so tired of playing it. They need to make some fundamental changes to those games if they want me to buy the next installment in the franchise. And I mean more than adding another 100+ Pokemon whose names I stopped caring about after Gen 3. Where's my open world Pokemon? Or my Pokemon MMO? Unfortunately those games won't come anytime soon because these games are easily millions of dollars of profit for Nintendo. I just wish they'd change the formula a bit.

Put Pokemon on Android/iOS and add a social element. Nintendo just made a billion dollars.

It's really easy to get caught up in Pokemon hype. I was in a similar situation to you when X/Y came out, I remember playing Red fondly back on the Game Boy and thought I would pick up a newer version. Then I remembered that I never even got to the second gym in the original game and spent some time on youtube watching "lets plays" of Pokemon.... Pokemon is a dreadfully boring game, and I honestly don't know how it's gotten so popular. :|
