• Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Why does Final Fantasy XIII exist?. on the Final Fantasy XIII board

    I always thought that the defining feature of Final Fantasy games was how linear and story-focued they were. Sure, about 75% through each game you get an airship and can roam around doing side-stuff,...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Morality Check regarding using Adblock. on the Off-Topic board

    I think the real elephant in the room is that people just don't pay much attention to "low key" ads on the internet. I live in the UK, so my Giantbomb experience isn't as full of intrusive, site-break...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Do video games improve mental capacity? (Article discussion). on the General Discussion board

    @ohnooh: I've never really understood the discussion of dopamine release as causing addiction. Dopamine is released in a whole range of enjoyable activities, right? Isn't the statement "playing videog...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Borderlands 3 is happening it's only a matter of time. on the General Discussion board

    I genuinely found Handsome Jack pretty funny - and I even thought that what they did with his character arc was pretty cool - how he starts off seeming powerful, and ends up just seeming pathetic. And...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Worth Reading: 11/10/2014. on the General Discussion board

    @pyrodactyl: I'm not a massive PS1 JRPG afficionado, but from what I have played, Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy IX are both amazing - and Valkyrie Profile had some really interesting story i...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Press X to Experience Feelings. on the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare board

    Do Call of Duty games really never try to tug at our hearstrings? I thought it was pretty shocking in the original Modern Warfare, where you fail to stop a nuke from exploding, and your player charact...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Which of the next big JRPGs do you have the highest hopes for - Bloodborne, FFXV, P5 or X?. on the General Discussion board

    All of the above. Don't make me choose!

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Best Playstation 1/2 Games. on the General Discussion board

    I'll suggest Devil May Cry 3 - it's the best character-action game I've ever played, and no-one in this thread has mentioned it yet. But as you can tell from the responses, there are an awful lot of r...

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

    Surely it very much depends on the game. I'd want a reviewer to write proportionatley about their thoughts on a game - and if, for whatever reason, their opinions on the game happen to stray into a lo...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Yet Another Developer Leaves Their Home Following Harassment. on the Brianna Wu board

    As some others have said, does reporting it widely not encourage this sort of behavior? That's not quite a rhetorical question - I literally can't enter the mind of someone who would post this stuff, ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Does framerate and resolution truly matter to you when buying console games?. on the General Discussion board

    I don't mind 30 fps so long as it's stable, but I definitley notice a big difference when it's at 60. As for resolution, as long as the text is legible (looking at you, Bastion) I really don't care. ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic What monster do you most want to see in this game?. on the Final Fantasy XV board

    I'd very much like to see a crazy high-definition Ultima Weapon. I'd also like to never see a flan ever again.

    I...had no idea that option was there. Well, that's blown my mind.

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Games You Think Only You Played. on the General Discussion board

    Anyone here played electronic popple? To my great surprise, there's a wiki page for it here, but it's totally empty. It was a wierd DOS game I got when I was younger (though it was hilariously out of ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic A revolutionary new monetization model (not). on the General Discussion board

    Perhaps I've been spoilt by growing up with home consoles rather than arcades, but if I had to pay 20p each time I stupidly killed myself in Dark Souls, I certainly wouldn't have played until the end ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Alan Wake is kinda the worst game ever. on the Alan Wake board

    The plot absolutley makes sense. Or, I remember thinking it made sense at the time. Alan wake is definitley something best experienced in a reasonably short amount of time - it'd be hard to get back i...

    Is Gemini Rue still available? If so, that would be really cool. It's super generous of you to be doing this, by the way.
