• nophilip posted a message in the forum topic What does Destiny do that Mass Effect didn't do better? on the Destiny board.

    Mass Effect is one of my favorite game series ever, and I doubt that I'm going to have the same lasting love for Destiny, but my time spent with the Destiny beta has been really enjoyable. I sincerel...

    Instant classic contribution from Dan. That game is hilarious.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic This explains game journalism perfectly. on the General Discussion board.

    Boy, so many problems in this article. The one I'll highlight is that reviews CANNOT be objective. How can you expect one person's interactions (and following opinions) with a game to apply to everyo...

    I don't know that we've ever seen a company this big backpedal this hard before. They seem to have abandoned just about everything that was in their original vision for the system at this point.

    @zevvion said: @blacklab said: Troy fatigue sets inNot for me. I love Troy Baker. He is amazing. His performance is almost always great if not amazing. I also burn out a hell of a lot less fast on his...

    Oculus Connect: perhaps a poor name choice.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic Thought on Delsin Rowe (SPOILERS) on the inFamous: Second Son board.

    I played through Good Delsin first time through the game and thought that the character was fairly well written. Pretty solid performance from Troy Baker. However, upon my second (evil) playthrough, ...

    Ryan, your absence has been felt this year. We all miss you.

    I'm really excited to see what fantastic and dumb ideas Jason and Dan can help the crew create!

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic 1.1 update for this just came out on the Wayward Souls board.

    This replaced Threes as the mobile game I play most frequently. It's really solid and controls pretty well once you get a feel for it. I still love Threes and play it occasionally, but I feel like I'...

    Mystery Men is one of my favorite comedies. Ben Stiller at his least insufferable.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic What games can you never get bored of? on the General Discussion board.

    I would say Dota 2, but I do periodically hit low points where I don't feel like playing it (due more to awful people than being bored).Trackmania 2, definitely.

    @fredchuckdave: Still waiting for a response to that friend request.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic Still a tough dilemma on the General Discussion board.

    This E3 got me to pull the trigger on a PS4. Already own a Wii U. That Bloodborne reveal kinda cinched it. Also, I've been using a Dualshock 4 for my PC gamepad for a while now, and it's probably my ...

    Couldn't disagree more. All the E3 coverage this week has been incredible.

    @c0v3rt: Hey duder, the challonge bracket shows @ohpmckenzie advancing over me in the losers bracket. This is incorrect.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic The Inaugural Giant Bomb Hearthstone Scrub League Tournament on the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft board.

    And the conclusion: Round 2 went to @ohpmckenzie handily, but after a pretty close Round 3, I emerged victorious.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic The Inaugural Giant Bomb Hearthstone Scrub League Tournament on the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft board.

    Round 1 between myself and @ohpmckenzie goes to me. Hearthstone crapped out on us midway through round 2, so we will play the rest of our matches at a later time.

  • nophilip posted a message in the forum topic Teacher tenure ruled unconstitutional, thoughts? on the Off-Topic board.

    Unconstitutional seems like a strong word, but tenure is kind of a shitty practice. I'm in Michigan and didn't really see this in high school, but I certainly experienced the negative effects of tenur...
