    @sunstalker_solaire: Yep! Fuck Lurker Sharks. It was weird replaying the Jak games last year, because I expected that guy to no longer freak me out, what with me being twenty years old. NOPE! Still go...

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Do you think developer/publishers know their game is bad?. on the General Discussion board

    The 6-9 months thing is definitely way off the mark. Most games are mediocre-at-best until at least the last 10% of development. Everything is poorly-tuned, badly-balanced, broken, it's an absolute ug...

    @zevvion: I totally understand your frustrations, but just to point a few things out;The devs have never once said that the campaigns should last "roughly 30 hours". They wanted it to be a longer expe...

    @twigger89: Yeah, i've played a good 200+ hours of Long War, and I can sympathize with having to deal with unruly load-times and crashes, but thankfully the most recent versions seem to have very litt...

    @zevvion: How long ago did you play Long War? It's still in Beta, and they're making substantial improvements with each new release. At this point, it's really far less random than the Vanilla game, b...

    @stinger061 said: I think having the enemy play by the same rules is the big one. The fact that the aliens got a free move as soon as you encountered them was really annoying in Enemy Unknown and ofte...

    Love all the dumb little Easter Eggs in Half-Life 2 and the Episodes, especially stuff like the Oracle Vortigaunt, the caches, Lamarr in the rocket and the secret G-Man apperances. One of the few game...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post Game of Thrones' Fourth Episode Arrives May 26.

    The first couple of episodes of this series were pretty dull, but Episode 3 was actually fantastic. Worth a shot if you're a fan of the show (or if, like me, you're starting to tire of the show but st...

    I guess there's a bunch of different ways to come at the 10/10 question. I'm usually super-picky about giving anything a perfect rating (on my Letterboxd, I have plenty of 4 and 4 1/2 star movie ratin...
