    I'll usually make it some variation on Lack, based on setting/era. Lack, Lackington, Lacksworth, Lackus, Lackly.

    Man, even at Early Access, this game seems like it has NO business being anywhere but a game dev's hard drive. 90% of the game mechanics seem either to be not implemented, or implemented but janky as ...

    "HOLD ON TO YOUR BADONKADONK" I'm out. It's crazy how much better Tales From The Borderlands is at depicting a genuinely interesting world and characters compared to the main series.

    @corevi: ..The Fall won best story, and that's an episodic game with one episode out. It's also shorter than Tales From The Borderlands. Broken Age, a runner-up, also only has one act out, and that's...

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Top Games NOT On The Giantbomb Top Ten. on the General Discussion board

    The Banner Saga, Kentucky Route Zero and Tales From The Borderlands stick out in my mind. The Banner Saga I feel like would've gotten into the top ten had it not came out so early in the year, or if m...

    The Fall. It was pretty decent, I didn't really connect much with any of the characters and the setting got super samey. I'm still pretty surprised it won Best Story, while The Banner Saga and Kentuc...

    As somebody that's been steadily playing through the series this year, I like Metal Gear Solid 2 but it's EASILY the worst of the original three Solid games. Both of the other games completely blow it...
