  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Did everyone forget about Transistor?. on the Transistor board

    Eh, it's number 6 on my GOTY list but mostly just because this has been a super disappointing year for games in my opinion. Fantastic presentation and great mechanics, but the gameplay becomes pretty...

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic So the first episode is pretty fantastic. on the Tales from the Borderlands board

    I am INCREDIBLY impressed with this episode. For clarification: I love The Walking Dead Comics. I love Fables. I love the Game of Thrones TV Show. I straight-up dislike Borderlands as a property, espe...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post Guess What? Game of Thrones Launches Tomorrow.

    Man, I REALLY hope that they break away from established universe characters over the course of this series. It completely pulls me out of the story when suddenly characters come in with established a...

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic I just finished reading Sphere.... on the Off-Topic board

    I also just finished the book, and for the most part really enjoyed it. I felt like it got a little cheap towards the end, boiling character motivations down to overly simplistic "The sphere's powers...

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Guesses on GB'S GOTY candidates. on the General Discussion board

    Probably Shadow of Mordor. Which is a shame because, while it's a fantastic game for the most part, it sucks to see the likely winner of GOTY be a game with some obvious crippling flaws (God, that la...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post Far Cry 4 Review.

    Oh man, I was kind of expecting this game to be seriously praised, since it was looking pretty great. It seems like this year we're seriously lacking in GOTY contenders. I can't even remember the last...

    @d_w said:I will never not say that this game has one of the most poorly written plots of any game and some truly questionable mission design, but has some good basic combat. I just wish that was wra...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post Quick Look: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

    @backstabuuu: How is that telling? Because you have middling opinions on games that reviewed very well, that's "telling"? A lot of people thought all three of those games were fantastic, and the crit...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post Telltale Pulls Curtain Back on Tales From the Borderlands.

    I'm so glad this seems more TellTale writing and less Borderlands writing. The first game was okay because I liked the Mad-Max-Planet world they'd built, but I found Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequels' wr...

    It was all so charming and well-done until the fucking "THAT. WAS. AWESOME!!!" line. I hate that cliche line so god damn much and it's EVERYWHERE. It's NEVER endearing. Not even ONCE.

    I'm hyped as hell for Silent Hills. Silent Hill 2 is my favourite game, and i've been on a Kojima kick since buying the MGS Legacy Collection.
