  • HatKing posted a message on the post Encyclopedia Bombastica: Mega Man 2.

    Growing up with these games, it always baffles me the way people pick and choose entries. I could see having favorite bosses and levels, but saying some games are worse seems odd. They're kind of all ...

    I don't live too far from Patrick. I guess I'll go join him. He plays a lot of interesting stuff. And we can talk about how important Jurassic Park is to us.

  • HatKing posted a message in the forum topic How much video game music do you listen to? on the General Discussion board.

    I don't find myself listening to OSTs too often, but occasionally if one really sticks with me I'll revisit it on its own after the game or movie. Hotline Miami and The Yawhg to mention a couple rece...

    The roads they were on heading to St Louis didn't feel anything like what I've seen driving around these parts. They got the cornfields and small towns, but we have fucking highways.This game looks re...

  • HatKing posted a message in the forum topic The Terminator Poll on the Off-Topic board.

    I think I'm more of a horror guy than an action guy. I tend to fall on the Terminator/Alien side of things rather than T2/Aliens. Not that I don't see the value of both. They're kind of all awesome, a...

    This is, like, one thing in this industry right now that people can feel good about. The people making it come off endearing and genuine, and it's a really ingenious idea. If it works out, it actually...

  • HatKing posted a message on the post Quick Look: Arcade Archives for PS4.

    I want to see a gritty reboot starring Bomb Jack and the bucket from Kaboom trying to stop a completely power mad Bomberman from blowing up the last of the arcades. Obviously it ends darkly and Bomber...

    Looks cool. I'll be throwing it on my Steam wishlist and get to it once I wrap up the thirty or so games sitting in my library waiting to be played once I finish building my new PC.

    @corruptedevil: @amyggen: Thanks guys, that clears it up a little bit. At least there is some semblance of law there. Hopefully it doesn't come to legal action, but it'd be absolute shit if the proje...

  • HatKing posted a message in the forum topic Yogscast's Kickstarter-funded game cancelled ($570k raised) on the General Discussion board.

    I'm still not totally sure how this part of Kickstarter works. Do these people just cut and run with the money now? Or, are the backers refunded because the folks asking didn't follow through? I get ...

  • HatKing posted a message in the forum topic [SPOILERS] Little late to the party, but i just finished. on the Far Cry 3 board.

    The game was uneven narratively. There were weird thematic shifts that didn't work cohesively, some really terrible pacing, and a major villain that was unremarkable especially when compared to the v...

  • HatKing posted a message in the forum topic The original Xbox - An unappreciated classic system on the Xbox board.

    It was a great system. That was a pretty great era for games, fuck what people say. It was kind of the last generation of the niche. Probably the last time where we saw, on a large scale, massive budg...
