You're thinking of propaganda. Marketing, at its worst, is annoying or offensive to some people.

Everything about Battleborn seems right up my alley. I even like the slightly weird art design. But, from what I've seen, it's way too much screen filling color noise going on during combat. Even during smaller battles I had a hard time following what was going on. Maybe you don't think about it as much when you play it yourself. But, man, I would actually like to see the players and the surrounding area, not a constant goop of colorful effects.

No, I can't say that my desire to visit those places were heightened after playing AC2. But I'm not a sightseeing kind of tourist, who I think those games would speak to the most, so I'm probably not the one to give an opinion.

I try to listen to both but the Beastcast is my main addiction these days. They have great rapport and everyone seem to have something to say or ask on any given subject. A bit of silliness mixed with a lot of thoughtful discussions.

I've been listening to the Bombcast for a long time so it's starting to feel like it can't surprise me anymore, with opinions or jokes. I find myself zoning out a lot. But I think that's only natural after all these years. I'm still pretty much in love with everything Drew says though. And I love when there are guests on the show.

I love me some Dota, but nah, I'm good. Maybe if they changed the format to be more of a dumb fun time. A community match/tournament every month only playing Abillity Draft or All Random Deathmatch for example.

I don't think Brad would be into that, though. Playing the sillier alternative modes can get old pretty fast and it takes something away from the intense Dota experience.

The talk about day 1 hype and not missing out on the zeitgeist surrounding a Dark Souls -release is very much exaggerated. They are games I want to explore and complete on my own. If I ever look up anything online it's after I finished it once or twice.

Motivation to finish, or even play, games comes and goes for me. I don't have a problem with a big library, though. But sometimes there's too many other things calling your attention that it's impossible to focus on a game. I still love games but I'm glad I don't work as a reviewer. Forcing myself through a game is literally torture (by which I mean figuratively)

I enjoyed Dr. Langeskov the tiger and the terribly cursed emerald: A whirlwind heist. I really hate the term "Walking Simulator". It's as if they have nothing else to offer than walking.

Edit: You put "walking simulator" in quotes. We know you know what we know.

Hanna

5/5

I'm still not sure I watched Hanna.

Edit: If you want to describe 4am fever to anyone. It's a simple story. But it's difficult.
