    No. My father died when I was 7 months old and my mom remarried when I was 14, but I never thought of my step father as a father. Even then, this was never a thing my mom and I did.

    I wouldn't consider myself an authority on shooters, but when I take out the driver, passenger, and gunner of a truck in one shot with Farcry 4's D2 it feels pretty good. Plus it fits in the side-arm...

  • Tom_omb posted a message in the forum topic Which game should I finish next in my back catalog?. on the General Discussion board

    You have a lot of long RPGs there, that's a weighty backlog. Maybe throw in a Psychonauts or Valiant hearts in between big ass RPGS to pace yourself.

    In the case of Alien Isolation the complaint was levied against it for being too long and poorly paced. Cutting content could have made it a tighter, higher quality experience. On the other end of the...

    Giant Bomb has a Majora's Mask defender, no need for Patrick to return for a Quick Look. If you want to hear Patrick talk about MM:3D he spoke at length on one of his YouTube Demon's Souls videos. He'...

    I've only played one or two of the MP games and it's an interesting glimpse at how they have evolved over the years. It gets a little tiring, but I just do other things while the video plays in the ba...

  • Tom_omb posted a message in the forum topic Suggestions for a new 3DS owner?. on the New Nintendo 3DS board

    As much as I liked A Link Between Worlds I'd put Link's Awakening and the N64 Zeldas ahead of it. The Oracle games and Phantom Hourglass are worth playing as well. The two NES Zeldas are also playabl...

  • Tom_omb posted a message in the forum topic Do you buy Nintendo games as soon as you want them?. on the Nintendo board

    As with any game I buy what I really want to play right away at launch. It just so happens many Nintendo games I buy fall into that category. My backlog is so large it doesn't make sense to buy any...
