Max Payne 3. If anything it's a pretty great piece on deconstructing a protagonist (or cover shooters as a genre if we want to go down that rabbit hole) through the lens of a Tony Scott movie, and the soundtrack is goddamn amazing. It's not easy though, and the difficulty curve spikes in a way that reflects the narrative. In the age of games that punish the shit out of you, Max Payne 3 really makes you feel like you accomplished something when you can take down an entire room of armed to the teeth, body armor wearing mercenaries. I also just love the way the game is direct opposites occurring all at once: A cover shooter that punishes you for sitting in cover, pushing you out in the open for a wild, frenzied gun-battle that occurs in slow motion. It may not be the Max Payne people wanted, but it's exactly what I needed at the time, and really hope people give it a chance.

Call of Duty 4 is the game of the generation, fuckers. And I don't even like it that much, but it's more influential and defining of a generation than terrible Star Trek fan fiction that played like Gears of War on heroin. Dark Souls is the Game of the Niche.

This ain't what this thread is about, yo. Despite how painfully obvious it is that people are voting for The Chosen Undead because they like Dark Souls.

Sorry, just had an old man shouting from his porch moment. Though, really, people are voting between an empty husk they can make look pretty, and the Dark Souls player avatar?

Lucasarts has been a hollow shell of a developer for a while now. Once they doubled down on Star Wars products, they just became victims of the law of diminishing returns. As impressive as 1313 looked on a technical stand-point, it was just going to be a new Uncharted. They may have officially shut down the studio, but that studio's soul died a long time ago. The real shame are the people out of jobs, so hopefully they can find new homes that won't have them constantly trying to polish new Stormtrooper models.

Yeah, with the newspaper article tilted in the way it was, there was no hope for him.

Beat up street toughs and drive a muscle car. Dave can fly out to make guest appearances.

I'll resort to pugilism if GTA4 is disparaged in my immediate area. Saint's Row is pretty great, too, but not fist fighting great.

When the game that depends heavily on my past choices deletes my save near the end of episode 3, you realize how much of a goddamn slog it is to replay. It's good, and should win a lot for it's writing, but Game of the Year?

Fuck no.

Whoever makes it, make sure to put this video in:

I don't care about the topic of this thread at all, but I now demand the man interviewing Jeff be brought onto the Giant Bomb crew. I'm not even joking, I need that man on the Bombcast.

Well, for one, it's an extremely cheap way to get attention for your product that adds nothing of value to it, unless you buy video games for the express purpose of getting aroused. If that's your thing, that's cool, but don't get all defensive when everyone who doesn't buy games for that reason gets a little weirded out.
