Seeing the donations hit almost $1,200 before the majority of streams even started makes my heart swoon! Holy crap! Never underestimate the generosity and greatness of people.

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far!

All of those new cards...except for Mad Frost Mage...look dope as hell.

Also, make sure you guys check out the Giant Bomb Community Endurance Run 6 this weekend! I'll be playing Hearthstone on Saturday from 12:00pm - 12:00am CST, and the chat will be building my decks. Wins and losses will lead to money to charity! Don't forget to donate as well!

  • Iudex - lvl 1
  • Vordt - lvl 8
  • Sage - lvl 20

Most of the game, I've used the Uchi you get pretty early on (reinforced it to +3, works pretty damn well). Now I'm using the Butcher Knife +4. I'm actually trying to NOT get boss weapons right now, as I want to see how well I can do with just the weapons they give me on the course of the game.

I also do not use any form of sorceries/miracles/pyromancies.

@babychoochoo: Cumberbatch as lead = guaranteed good movie.

The Fifth Estate would like to have a word with you.

As would Star Trek Into Darkness YEAH I WENT THERE.

Also I'd be interested to see how Marvel tackles adapting Shuma Gorath to live action without making it super hokey or looking like Parallax from Green Lantern.

Into Darkness is a "to each their own" kind of thing for me. I don't give a shit about Star Trek personally, but I know people who are lifelong Trekkies that liked that movie. I'm not gonna knock someone if they dig it.

As for Shuma-Gorath, you make him look exactly like Shuma-Gorath. Once you add the realism to it, Shuma looks like the cosmic horror entity that we know and love.

I've never played Demons' Souls, so this is a bit biased, I guess.

Dark Souls was an incredible game: interconnected world through and through, story told THROUGH THE GAME and not cutscenes, unexpected and fantastic DLC, great PvP... It was just amazing.

Dark Souls 2 was hot garbage, Bloodbourne was something I just couldn't get into (and I haven't been able to bring myself to give it another go at all), and Dark Souls 3...so far...isn't impressing me at all.

1. I knew UWP was going to be a disaster.

2. The thread title should've just been "You Probably Shouldn't Buy Quantum Break." Could've taken the "on PC" part off. Seriously, the game is bad.

Kanye's people have been pretty aggressive about his shit being used on YouTube ever since his whole Tidal thing happened. But taking down Ryan's Power video? Absolute sadness.

Someone please restore it to its former glory!

I didn't like Nosgoth at all from the time that I spent with it. My love for all things Legacy of Kain aside, it just felt generic as fuck. It played well, sure, but nothing about it stood out to me. I just kept thinking "I'd rather go play Left 4 Dead."

Sad to see a game go, though. I know there were people who really enjoyed it.

@ll_exile_ll: Fair points. I still personally feel like voice acting just harms the aesthetics of the game. We'll see what happens.
