• Octaslash posted a message on the post Quick Look: Life Is Strange.

    I enjoyed the first episode a lot despite the occasional "hella" and "awesome sauce", which is a pretty big deal for me! Honestly, most of the dialog is actually pretty good later on.

  • Octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Just finished episode 1 *SPOILERS*. on the Life Is Strange board

    Besides the occasional poorly done teen-lingo (who uses "hella" unironically?) I thought it was pretty well written. At its worst, it's still better than a David Cage game (and I love his games). The ...

    I thought Heavy Rain and Beyond were a vast improvement over Indigo Prophecy, but man that game holds a special place in my heart. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard at a game as much as I did...

    You should look at some of the letters that IGN and other mainstream sites receive. It more than likely comes from children. At least the person commenting on Giant Bomb is sincere and imaginative!

  • Octaslash posted a message in the forum topic didn't like DA II combat.. is this any better?. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    It actually feels a lot less responsive. When you queued up a move in DA2, it would happen almost instantly. In DA:I, it feels like there's some lag after you click an attack and sometimes your charac...

    This game looks beautiful, but holy crap, I hope they improve those running animations. If they keep British accents from the previous game, I'm sold.

    It looks like a Telltale game, but well animated."Make the player a male"- other publishers... that's so fucking sad.

  • Octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Is the Console Version Majorly Different From PC?. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    It's pretty ironic that previous Bioware games on PC had zero controller support (despite working great on consoles) and now DA:I plays like trash unless you have a controller.
