• RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Top 5 of 2014 from a person.. on the General Discussion board

    I really hope Wolfenstein gets the recognition I think it deserves this year. It is also the most fun I've had in an FPS game in a long time. The last FPS game I bought was Insurgency. Despite having ...

  • RiotControl posted a message on the post Quick Look: Loadout (PS4).

    @tehpickle: No, you're right. These kinds of games almost require 60 FPS. Imagine playing Quake Arena at 30 FPS. Any sort of fast-paced competitive game needs 60 FPS. It's one of the main reasons why...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Here's Yet Another Master Chief Collection Apology From 343. on the Halo: The Master Chief Collection board

    I don't understand how this game gets so many near-perfect reviews if it's as busted as everyone says. I don't think there's a solution for releasing games like this, though. They only get a short two...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Don't Expect Any Early Reviews For The Crew. on the The Crew board

    I don't really see the problem for games like this. MMOs have had a history of not giving out review copies and this new slate of "MMO-lite" games on consoles aren't that different from MMOs.I mean......

  • RiotControl posted a message on the post I've Seen the Light on Dragon Age, and It's Glorious.

    I'm still going to wait for an Ultimate Edition. I just don't buy RPGs like this new anymore. I want the full experience where the DLC is discounted to a reasonable price with the retail game. (Usuall...

  • RiotControl posted a message on the post Reminder, Escape From Dead Island Launches Next Week.

    A nicely edited trailer probably isn't enough to help this game. After the absolute garbage that was Riptide, the MOBA(seriously?) and the passing off of the franchise to another developer for a major...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Monument Valley Bombarded With One-Star Reviews After Offering DLC. on the Monument Valley board

    I'd jump into say that this must be a generational thing, but... it probably isn't. Gamers have gotten a lot of flak lately, but this kind of attitude is just wholly pervasive in all things internet. ...

  • RiotControl posted a message on the post Quick Look: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Remastered.

    I only played this on PC and I definitely remember it looking better than this, but did the original Xbox version really look this bad? (Or more likely, the PS2 version was used in this port)

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic What is the worst squad A.I you have seen in a game. on the General Discussion board

    Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger.I just reminded you of that games existence. Now you must think of it for about 5-10 seconds before you're distracted. I have won a small victory this day.Also, wh...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic new content on giantbomb you would like too see?. on the General Discussion board

    I would like to see a live stream similar to Bombin' in the AM with community members invited. Adam Sessler had that going while he was at Rev3Games and it was pretty interesting to actually hear from...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Personal social views as a central part of a game critique. on the General Discussion board

    I'll just rant with some observations I've made. I will agree that Metacritic is a problem, but it is NOT a problem related to social activist criticism. It was a problem before that and it continues...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Best Playstation 1/2 Games. on the General Discussion board

    @billmcneal: You'll need separate memory cards for both PS1 and PS2 games on a PS2. They're cheap as dirt, though.There's so many good PS2 games that I don't even know where to begin. This topic could...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic Hatred - A game which just might garner some... attention.. on the Hatred board

    I really don't understand the panic around here by what "damage" this could possibly cause the industry. Science has sided with us. The Supreme Court has sided with us. Nothing is going to happen. As...

  • RiotControl posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 09/23/2014.

    "I flew too close to the sun." And that's why Dan is awesome.Also, Danny always makes anything better. I hope becoming like "the face" of GameSpot doesn't prevent more appearances.

  • RiotControl posted a message on the post The Growing Illusion of Single Player.

    I hate co-op in 99% of cases. Either the game is made worse because of the focus on it or the co-op just isn't enjoyable to me because of the differences between players in what we want out of the gam...

  • RiotControl posted a message in the forum topic I'm bored of video games, and I don't know why.... on the General Discussion board

    I haven't played a game in about a month either. In fact, I keep leaving a game running all day long with the means to play it, but I never do. Now I'm just not even getting started because I don't w...

    As far as the Brad Wardell thing is considered, you guys are correct in that a lawsuit was filed, but one thing we're not discussing according to Wardell is the harassment, death threats and leaking o...
