    I loved it. Intense drama and large-scale action with serious and tragic consequences to match. Cheesy and overdone at times, but for the most part it was an exciting and thrilling spectacle. The big ...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic Best Anime of the Year. on the Off-Topic board

    I've only seen JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and Space Dandy this year. Out of those two, Space Dandy is definitely the best, even if it's wildly inconsistent in quality.

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic There's an elephant the bombcrew can't ignore. on the Bayonetta 2 board

    What they really need to talk about is the game's ableism. There are people out there who can't even walk, and there Bayonetta is double-jumping, flying and doing all sorts of acrobatic moves. And suc...

    I finished Scaramouche. Really enjoyed it. My only issue with it is that the protagonist is a bit of a Mary Sue (I almost sighed when, for the fourth time, he tried his hand at something he had no pri...

    It's good to hear the guys' o-pinion of this game.

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic What Are You Reading Duders? November 2014. on the Off-Topic board

    Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini, Parerga and Paralipomena by Arthur Schopenhauer, and Grimm's Fairy Tales. All three are very enjoyable (Grimm's Fairy Tales mostly because many of the tales are so absu...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic Did you find yourself enjoying this game?. on the The Evil Within board

    @theacidskull: It was extremely disappointing. Resident Evil 4, God Hand and Vanquish are some of my favourite games of all time, and I was expecting something of that caliber.Still, it's not a bad g...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic Did you find yourself enjoying this game?. on the The Evil Within board

    The presentation was really excellent aside from the environment transitions. The different environments just didn't feel naturally connected or related... and they weren't supposed to, but a coherent...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic What do you think of the game?. on the Bayonetta 2 board

    Good: More colourful than the first game, more enemy variety. Most of what was great about the first game is there.Bad: Loki is unbearable, combat is visually messy in a way that fairly often makes it...

    @legion_: Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world because it is so common in adults, and especially the elderly. Cancer in children is very rare and isn't something any parent should...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic Yet another school shooting in the US. on the Off-Topic board

    This is just sensationalism and paranoia. The idea that parents can't send their kids to school without fear of them getting shot to death because about 25 people/year in a country of well over 300 mi...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic Who else has beaten it and what do you think?. on the Alien: Isolation board

    I finished it today. It's easily one of the best games I've ever played. The sound design is by far the best I've seen in a video game, the visuals are out of this world (they've nailed the look of th...

    Developers are continuing to make great games and people who are into games are continuing to play them. That, in the end, is what actually matters when it comes to the subject of video games. Everyth...

  • Icemael posted a message on the post Quick Look EX: A City Sleeps.

    Looks like a flash game visually. Unimpressive pattern design, no flow to the action, monotonous uninteresting environments, really mediocre music for a game with such a big focus on it... just awkwar...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic Personal social views as a central part of a game critique. on the General Discussion board

    A prominent role of moral judgments in a review (of a game, or a movie, or a book etc.) is a sure sign that the critic is incapable of proper aesthetic judgments. "Bayonetta sucks because sexualizing ...

    I played through the whole game yesterday. It's gorgeous and pretty atmospheric with a handful of very cool sequences, but the solution to the mystery is cheap and disappointing. And there's nothing e...

  • Icemael posted a message in the forum topic who elese is disapointed in this game. on the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor board

    It was definitely a bit disappointing. I enjoyed the game well enough and it's not like I expected it to be amazing, but I thought it would be better in terms of world design and mission variety. The ...
