    There number 3 is my number one, but whatever. You know going into any GOTY discussion that there are only a handful of games that are actually contending for the number one spot. And people like wha...

    Hasn't been a great year for games, in my opinion. Then again, I've had almost no time to play any. Personally, Alien: Isolation is my game of the year. Fantastic game, even if the last hour or so se...

    @jasonr86: Advanced Warfare 4/5. The best that series has been since Modern Warfare 2. Super excited for the next advanced warfare/worried about what next year's CoD will be. (Remember after CoD4 we ...

    @oddysseus: Sci-fi. I could make up a lot of high-minded bullshit, but it boils down to "I LIke Spaceships"

    To everyone saying that Ubi is screwing up because you and others won't follow them to U-Play.... Patrick already said this on Twitter but it bears repeating: Ubisoft wouldn't be making this move if ...

    I think it's terrible. Not worse than the prequel titles, but still awful.

  • Tom_Scherschel posted a message in the forum topic Top Game this year you think others have missed or ignored. on the General Discussion board

    I limit my gaming-podcast consumption to the Giant Bombcast, so take this with a grain of salt, but I would argue for Alien: Isolation. The main game is fantastic until the last two hours, when it dev...

  • Tom_Scherschel posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft Dropping Xbox One's Holiday Price to $349. on the Xbox One board

    This console cycle has been so interesting, and all the ways that Microsoft has been trying to stabilize the Xbox One has been a big part of that. I also think that the PS3 is informing a lot of these...

    I don't have numbers to back anything up. The point about not addressing any wrongs unless we can address them all hadn't occurred to me before. This probably WILL be over any day now. If you don't n...

    @splodge @humanity @amyggen : I disagree that it's clear that Patrick speaks for the entire site. A large portion of GB's audience hate him to the point that there is an extension that actually blocks...

  • Tom_Scherschel posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 10/14/2014.

    I remain disappointed with the staff at Giant Bomb for refusing to clearly denounce Gamer Gate as a hate group that no thinking person should want to have any part in. Whatever concerns that movement ...
