• Stokes posted a message on the post Quick Look: Payday 2: Crimewave Edition.

    Payday 2 was probably one of the biggest surprise for me last year. It's terribly difficult at first because you don't really have the right gear required to stealth a mission and you go down really...

  • Stokes posted a message in the forum topic Editorial: Why We Write: On Game Critique, Influence, and Reach. on the General Discussion board

    Enjoyed the article. It's well written and respectful. Doesn't come off as trying to shame others for their views unlike a lot of other writers that try to write about this stuff.I feel like that's ...

    I got into them after ...Like Clockwork came out in 2013. I've since went back and listened to all their albums. Like Clockwork is still their best work (hell, I'd give it my top album of all time)...

    Austin is a pretty awesome track. They have a ton of screens up around the track and you can hear the commentary from speakers. There are also a bunch of really good grass spots to sit in GA. Turn ...

    I could never get summoning to work, so I ended up beating all the bosses solo. I really wish I could summon on some of those fights. Probably would of been a much happier experience.

  • Stokes posted a message on the post This is the New Guitar Hero.

    Yeah, the whole real video back drop makes it feel super cringe worthy. However, that could be the song selection and the band. If they had it playing some Mastodon with them on stage, it'd probabl...

    @bigmess: The best baseball game ever made. I actually played it last summer on an emulator and it holds up well.

    @sethphotopoulos: If you're using the cane, put it in sword mode and you should be able to hit the little spiders 3 times from the front and kill them. The first hit will do little damage, the second...

    @deadpanjazman: That's actually one of my favorite parts. If you play it again, it's no coincidence that Ocelot shows up as soon as you meet EVA. He was originally there to meet snake as the contact,...

  • Stokes posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon 3: Part 13.

    Where is it stated that they're supposedly speaking Russian this entire time? I've always thought they were just speaking English. Is it implied anywhere that they aren't? Also, it says that EVE w...

    I played it when it came out in the US a couple of years ago, so I may be looking at through rose tinted eyes, but I don't recall many of these issues with the game. All I know is that it was the firs...

    @kasaioni: I've always thought that MGS3 was the best at balancing the supernatural with the real world setting. Maybe I'm just naive, but I remember playing MGS3 and not once stopping to question t...
