Pretty much only looking for improvements on what DkS did wrong - namely the netcode. Everything else was fairly well balanced post-patch, so the only complaint I really have is the P2P and the lack of cool things for a few covenants to do.

I want a remake of Vagrant Story using the souls engine.

Fuck. Me.

That is exactly what I need. Right now.

Hmm...some Calc II textbook that I just picked up. So, yeah.

TWO WORLDS 2! Please.

Amalur, ME3, I Am Alive, Bioshock: Infinite, Metro 2033: LL, Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3 (?), Witcher 2 on 360...

Off the top of my head, those are all (looking to be) fucking awesome things.

2012 so far is alright. Already catching up on games (namely Deus Ex right now), and getting near a full PC upgrade for a modern rig for the first time in about 6 years.

Two Worlds 2, please.

Hmm...Renegade Ops seems to be getting a whole lotta love here, so that. Steam id = siroptimusprime

Deus Ex: HR (playing it right now), Total War: Shogun 2, the Witcher 2, Saint's Row: The Third, Dead Island, and I need to see Dragon Age 2 for myself.

I learned very quickly that I now want to play Saint's Row: The Third.

I concluded that Bastion is the best game of the year (the discussion on the podcast helped me get to that conclusion).

I still have the same respect for all of the Bombsquad, but Vinny should have defended Dark Souls more and I feel like the combined forces of Patrick and him (and to an extent Brad, I guess) would have put it over LA No Ire or Rayman. The Witcher 2 as well, but i have yet to play that, so no comment on its quality vs. Portal 2, Dead Space 2, etc.

Personally, Skyrim is an alright game. It's better than Oblivion, for certain, but it's an okay game in total. After 25 hours of playing the game, I was bored and didn't want to do anything in the world. After one single Daedric quest, I'm finished. I've seen everything I need to see in this game, and it's rendered the experience pointless. I think I just want more straightforward role-playing games now, or something more akin to The Witcher 2.

But, I can see exactly where Brad is coming from even if he was arguing very poorly towards the end of the discussion (and in general seemed to take all his cuts personally). It's a new experience for some people. That's okay, but it has been done before. Morrowind and Daggerfall are games that have had Skyrim's "innovations", albeit outdated by now. The new stuff as well. This "radiant" quest system is not really effective as it is condensing the "giant" open world into waiting for the game to give you the stuff you haven't really experienced; it's inherently breaking down the purpose of open world games - to explore. I'm sorry, but I'd rather play a game where everything is somewhere and you would have to explore to actually find that stuff. Call it padding, but exploration is key to open world games and not just mindless fluff.
