• Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic Is the Episodic Model a Waste of Time?. on the General Discussion board

    I think it can work. For the consumer, you can buy the first episode for $5 or whatever and then buy into the rest of the season if you enjoy it. So it's a low barrier of entry. On network TV shows a...

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post Call of Duty: Black Ops III Reveal Trailer.

    I think gameplay wise this look interesting, but it is weird to see a sequel that looks graphically inferior to the previous entry.

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post Quick Look: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China.

    I'm going to throw my hat in with the people saying the vision cones and floor radar thing ruin what could have been a very cool visual style. Makes me wonder why they just didn't go all out and do t...

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post There Is a New Overlord Game.

    @joshwent: The 2008 reboot is nothing like any of the previous games in terms of either story or gameplay. The previous ones were the work of Patrice Désilets (The maker of Assassin's Creed), while th...

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post There Is a New Overlord Game.

    @joshwent: Heavenly Sword and Prince of Persia both had outstanding writing. Neither game had exceptional gameplay but I would list both within a list of the best written games out there.

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post Quick Look: I Am Bread.

    I enjoyed the Unfinished version of this but couldn't make any progress. Good to see they have added that invincibility option though. Couldn't make it past the second level. Still inspired me to wri...

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post Quick Look: Grand Theft Auto V (PC).

    I dunno about them but I would have put the textures on very high and turned down some other setting if it went over the memory budget. That said, I always set the texture resolution as high as possib...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic Would you eat a Savory-style Morning Bun (cheese & meat croissant/muffin) for breakfast?. on the Off-Topic board

    I'd say the Italian and the Spanish seem like they would be too much for breakfast. Starting your day off with a spoonful of pesto might taste great but all of your loved ones and coworkers will hate...

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post Here's the New Trailer for Star Wars Battlefront.

    @edgezero: Those are in game assets. They have likely had themselves anti-aliased with a super computer to look that clean, but nothing in this trailer screams that it is beyond the realm of possibil...

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post Quick Look: R.B.I. Baseball 15.

    @enemylandlord: The sad story behind that is that in response to EA buying the exclusive NFL license, 2K bought the exclusive MLB license (outside of Sony). The sad part is that 2K made a much better...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic Why is this site called Giant Bomb?. on the General Discussion board

    @flarephoenix: Dunno if you were referencing this or joking, but they did a video series called "Building a Bomb" where they showed the behind the scenes stuff of getting the site up and running. The...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic Playing MGS games chronologically?. on the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater board

    There are several story beats that would mean a lot more to you if you have played the first two. It works fine as a stand-alone experience, though. I would say it actually makes the most sense of any...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic Explain East Coast weather...packing for a trip to New York!. on the Off-Topic board

    Yea for a New Yorker this weather could be T-Shirt weather, but if you've never been in temps colder than 60 degrees I would recommend bringing a sweater and some sweatshirts. It's probably going to ...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic With Uncharted 4 Delayed to 2016, What Else is Out This Year?. on the General Discussion board

    Sony is famous for its slow starts so I'm not especially surprised by them. Microsoft, on the other hand, nailed the first couple of years for their previous consoles. Sony has a habit of starting of...

    @enemylandlord said:This game is seriously rad. Only complaint is there's not really a good place to practice the more complicated motions in the tricktionary. Also on later levels the pull specific ...

    Maxis has been dead since Will Wright left. It's just getting its ventilator shut off and feeding tube removed.

  • Raven10 posted a message on the post The Deer God Arrives for PC/Mac/Linux Today.

    Is it bad that I can't take this seriously? It seems like something an MFA student would come up with. Like they think they are going to recreate Bambi in game form except they also want you to shoot ...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic What Studio Ghibli movies should I watch?. on the Off-Topic board

    @hassun: My bad. Didn't realize it had hit some parts of Europe yet. In the US it always takes at least a year if not more after the Japanese release for it to hit here. GKIDS will have it at their b...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic What Studio Ghibli movies should I watch?. on the Off-Topic board

    First off, Tales of Earthsea can be skipped entirely. It sucks.Of Isao Takahata's films I would say that only Grave of the Fireflies is a good starting point for someone not familiar with Japanese cul...
