    Sometimes it's the most unnecessary features that become the most entertaining.

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Quick Look EX: Pillars of Eternity.

    I'm still very bitter about the death of pre-rendered backgrounds over the last decade, so I'm glad to see it pop back up again here and there. Full 3D environments rarely looked as visually impressiv...

    Synthetic voices in videogames is my new favorite trend.

    Woah, I wonder what prompted host change. Brad did a great job the last couple times, but I hope all is well with Jeff.

    AGDQ and SGDQ are two events I've really begun to look forward to every half-year. It's the closest thing to Videogame Olympics we have in quite a lot of ways.

    I know exactly what town in FFXIV he's talking about, and it reeeaally bothers me too.And the blood type video is pretty cool. It never really occurred to me how odd it was that they referred to them ...

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Quick Look: Super Comboman.

    One of my big pet peeves that's been showing up more and more lately, "Press ____ to skip cutscene". If I really must skip a cutscene, I'll figure it out myself, and why would you sell yourself so sho...

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Microsoft Laying Off 18,000 Employees.

    So the entirety of Microsoft's staff are going to spend the next six months wondering if they're one of the ones destined to be axed? How could anyone work in such an environment?And business lingo co...

  • Draxyle posted a message in the forum topic I Don't Think You Deserve Redemption, Aiden Pearce on the Watch Dogs board.

    I finally completed Brothers the other day (Brad was mostly right), and it really made me realize how far the big budget industry has fallen in terms of narrative cohesiveness in general.Brothers is a...

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Fatal Frame for Wii U Arrives on September 27 (in Japan).

    2014 NoA is probably more willing to localize this than preceding years of Nintendo, but still.. plenty reason to be worried they wouldn't.We've not seen many earnest attempts at horror in the semi-b...

    It's great to see the office full of people again.

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Quick Look: Shantae: Risky's Revenge.

    I definitely agree with the sentiment that the menus really clash with the pixel art of the game itself; at the very least they need to use a pixel-based typeface. It's the reason a lot of classic rem...

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Unfinished: Bot Colony 07/10/2014.

    A game of this nature really demands an elaborate tutorialization; the intro chapters at the very least should clearly show all of the commands needed in order to accomplish the task at hand, otherwis...

    One minute in and this is already casually racist.

    The robot voice, "okay" sounds vaguely sarcastic, which is kinda appropriate.Dammit, Jimmy.

    I feel like we're never going to get out of the "videogames are for children" phase if these companies keep treating their games as pieces to be sliced off at will.Even the movie industry doesn't do "...

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Bombin' the A.M. With Scoops and the Wolf: 07/07/2014.

    I'm always blindsided every time I hear that Crytek is working on Homefront 2. There is no way that game is going to be released with that name (or released at all, from the sounds of things).

  • Draxyle posted a message on the post Unfinished: The Forest 07/02/2014.

    Dan asking about the Blair Witch games; I've never even seen the movie before, but I would guarantee that The Forest is more faithful to The Blair Witch Project than those old games.
