• PollySMPS posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon - Part 06.

    @draxyle: I think it's a combination of the aiming being hyper sensitive and the framerate not being all that great. I believe the game runs at 30, but I think with the PSG-1's aiming controls get al...

    Like a lot of others I'm happy that this is something that can exist in this medium. It's interesting and important to try and explore ideas like this in this way. I'm the kinda person that when I'm ...

    I love Dave Lang. This dude "gets it." A really inspiring figure and story in the industry that a lot of aspiring game devs can learn from, I think.

    @patrickklepek You have infinitely brightened my day, you gloriously awesome person.

    @millionthlayla said:After this incident, I really don't feel welcome here. I used to want to be active on the forums, but that enthusiasm has dwindled with every discussion about sexism. Every ration...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Review/thoughts thread. on the Drakengard 3 board

    I'm nearing the end of Chapter 2 and so far it's a pretty harmless/uninspired hack and slasher that's got a sense of style, but not quite the budget to back it up. Sorta like Deadly Premonition where ...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic The Issue with Transistor's Ending (SPOILERS). on the Transistor board

    I didn't really much care for Transistor at all, but I felt that the ending was fine. The story didn't really hint so much at player agency as it did revenge. It was Red's story, not mine, so I feel a...

  • PollySMPS posted a message on the post Clear Eyes, Full Glass of Water, Can't Lose: 05/23/2014.

    Mr. Klepek, we need to talk about this haircut business. Are you going through a rebellious stage? First the incident a couple weeks ago on the Bombcast and now this haircut. Listen, Patrick, a lot o...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic The storytelling in Transistor. on the Transistor board

    @efesell: Yeah, I feel I've got a pretty good grasp of everything that went on, but The Spine feels like an idea that got cut short due to either budget or time restraints. I mean, yeah, it could hav...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Players intentionally killing me during Boss?. on the Dark Souls II board

    Yeah, I'm almost sure it's just players not knowing how the things work. I've taken more than my fair share of arrows to the back because of the damn things. So everyone is either just a shitty troll ...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Ran into my first PC cheater. on the Dark Souls II board

    Yesterday was a goldmine of cheaters for me, unfortunately. Was doing some helping out some folks with Smelter Demon and got summoned by a guy that was using infinite HP and infinite stamina. I was g...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Are you actually having fun?. on the Dark Souls II board

    After 75 hours and completing the game once and about 80% through on NG+, I really don't think this one is gonna have the same staying power for me. I mean, I think it plays better than the previous ...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Your highest rated message (slight spoilers). on the Dark Souls II board

    I used to have a couple of other messages that had 300-400 rates, but they either disappear over time or are scrolled off the most recent 10.

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Ran into my first PC cheater. on the Dark Souls II board

    @pr1mus: This can get you banned from being able to co-op or invade. There's a one-use item that will let you reset your ban, but after that, if you continue to do it, you'll be locked out of being a...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Ran into my first PC cheater. on the Dark Souls II board

    @mordukai: Making them walk backward off a cliff or punting their dumbasses off a ledge was ever so satisfying. My real beef with cheaters in PvP this time around is that beating them can completely ...

  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic Ran into my first PC cheater. on the Dark Souls II board

    I've run into one cheater while sparring with Blue Sentinels. Infinite HP of course, but he didn't really seem to have much of a grasp on anything else (big surprise, I know.) I basically spent 10 mi...

    I could be mistaken, but I could swear Jeff was tearing up there when the credits theme started rolling.
