  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic Is P.T. eligible for being in top 10 GOTY?. on the Silent Hills board

    It really bothers me that P.T. doesn't have its own wiki page on Giant Bomb. We have no evidence of overlap between P.T. and Silent Hills and they're two totally separate releases.

    I only trust people who have kept up with Bombin the AM, 'cause GBwest is pretty ambivalent on this year's games.

    I actually haven't played the Top 4, but Mario Kart 8 is absolutely one of my favorite games of the year. ...well played.

  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic A Conversation With David Jaffe & His Thoughts On Giant Bomb.... on the David Jaffe board

    Jaffe's an irrelevant turd and Ryan was capable of being nice to almost anybody. I've listened to him be a stubborn old fart too many times to care what he thinks of Giant Bomb. I'm glad to know Jeff...

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

    I didn't finish it because I thought it was a huge bummer. Messy art design, unremarkable music, clunky, heavy gameplay, and a story I could neither relate to or find thematically interesting. Bastion...

    Why did I think I should read the comments on this??? So many angry people!I just wanted to know what our kid Brad said he was beating the drum on. "Vinn-eSports," maybe? Or just #IDARB? so confused.

  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic This game is absolutely amazing!. on the Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth board

    I would actually argue a few of the Persona characters are better than ever. Naoto's no longer forced to just spout exposition all the time, they're leaning into Yukiko's dark sarcasm in a great way, ...

    The aesthetic question also comes in because the kid's super young. The nuances of aesthetic are hard to gauge without world experience. Which is why kids can like Spongebob Squarepants, basically; th...

  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic Due to the Giantbomb drought. on the General Discussion board

    The new Hearthstone expansion is rad. And they gave everybody a bunch of free packs and a free Arena run. It'll be a while till there's a better time to start playing.

  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic greatest action movie of all time?. on the Off-Topic board

    Barring sci-fi and comic book stuff (which both spend a lot of time not being action films) I'd be hard pressed to choose between Big Trouble in Little China and Die Hard.Otherwise, it's Star Wars and...

  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic GamesRadar has posted their GOTY 2014 awards.. on the General Discussion board

    Most of my favorite games of the year made the list. I guess they missed Mini Metro, Nidhogg and Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. And I drastically preferred Mario Kart 8 to Shovel Knight, as well as it...

    @viking_funeral: I didn't even mention Hearthstone but it's the first Blizzard game I've played for more than six hours since The Frozen Throne.

  • Little_Socrates posted a message in the forum topic Has 2014 been a disappointing year for games?. on the General Discussion board

    Yes and no. I suspect I'll be playing the best games of this year for the rest of the generation, at least. Towerfall Ascension, Mario Kart 8, Smash, etc. Awesome stuff. And then also great horror lik...
