  • PollySMPS posted a message in the forum topic The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Discussion Thread. on the The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth board

    Had a run yesterday where I successfully completed The Dark Room and defeated The Lamb without taking damage at all and got the Dead Boy achievement. That felt like quite an accomplishment. I'm not su...

    About 12 hours in, 130+ items unlocked, and 8 Mom Heart kills under my belt (and a Satan victory!) I don't really think this new version is going to win too many over since it's really just a remake...

    I'm in there like swimwear. Can't wait to get to crackin' away at this new version. I dumped about 75 hours in one month into the original and expansion earlier this year and I've been feeling the it...

    I run a server myself for some friends and we ran with 2x EXP rate and our drop rates are roughly 25% higher than the original game. We also did a bit of redundancy cleaning up in regards to what dro...

    Oof. I really wanted to like what I was seeing of this game but it's in some serious need of polish (which obviously could happen given it's not out until next year), but I'm also not a fan of random...

    Maybe I'm just remembering my Hard/Extreme mode playthrough, but I remember the Harrier fight being a goddamn nightmare sticking point for me for a bit. The damage some of those attacks do and how h...

    It's a pain we never get over, but we do learn to live with. Best of luck to you in getting there. Take all the time you need. Much love to you, Jeff and your family.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    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...
