Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game's fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.
The ways that Axiom Verge resembles Metroid help set up and drive home the ways that Axiom Verge is most definitely not Metroid.
Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.
Hey! First time I've gotten read on the Bombcast. Sweet. Weird to hear my name.
I was expecting anime hair and the LMBS system after seeing "Tales" in the headline.
Is this referencing an actual historical event or is it just generally based on "Latin America" and not anything specific?
Preloaded from the eShop! This video definitely sold me on this. Seeing semi-negative reviews on Metacritic weirded me out but it looks like a blast.
I would probably generally agree with Kirkhope>Wise at least from the N64 era on, but DANG is Donkey Kong Country 2 a killer freaking soundtrack.
Glover doesn't seem half-terrible!
It kinda really is though...I played about a fourth of the way through it and it gets absolutely bonkers with what it expects out of you. At least, that's how I remember it from renting it forever ago. It starts novel and semi-promising and gets way stinking bad.
I bought a bunch of terrible games for the 64. Next the crew will be taking a look at Chameleon Twist. Sad to say I own that one too. Also, Jeff had the proper response -- no one actually plays Buck Bumble, they come for the music.
They need to do Iggy's Reckin' Balls and Tonic Trouble. Another couple of kind of terrible weird N64 games!
Mexico's Independence Day is September 16th. Cinco de Mayo is remembrance of a battle won against French troops...though in all honesty it's mainly made up (kind of) as another beer holiday. Like St Patrick's Day.
I kinda think the Super Star Wars games don't hold up very well, but yeah Rogue Squadron was super awesome. And KOTOR. I think my brother would argue that LEGO Star Wars II belongs on here too.
I beat Bloodborne a week or two ago finally, and it was nice to give it a rest because it's a really intense experience throughout. I'm only missing the trophy for the chalice dungeon boss lady because it was getting way too frustrating to deal with those. I don't know what people are liking about those...
My final verdict has ended up being that Dark Souls>Dark Souls II>Bloodborne>Demon's Souls. Bloodborne has far too many arbitrary annoying sections for my taste, much like Demon's. I also like the more deliberate, slow pace and the vast number of combat options in Dark Souls. Still, it was a cool game. I'd love to see Jeff go back with fresh eyes and check out Dark Souls at this point.
@sledgemeyers: I really think they should add Halo Wars and Reach (with all their DLC) to the Master Chief Collection. At least that would be something. Then you'd really have the full Halo experience there. All units!
Jesse Ventura is the scum of the earth. I can't get behind even ironic love of the man. He's a horrible human being.
Use your keyboard!
