    It looked quite nice and relaxing until you smashed your skull in on that asteroid

    I think the rate at which good entirely original content comes out is still more than any working person can reasonably keep up with.

    Storm United sounds like an American soccer team's name

    The way the main character hops back and forth makes it look like she needs to pee really badly

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Quick Look: Halo: Spartan Strike.

    Playing game looks barely preferable to watching paint dry.

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Do you enjoy Star Wars?. on the Off-Topic board

    The original films are classics, obviously. I don't have any particular interest beyond those and having seen all three a few times now I have no real desire to watch them again. The new film will pro...

    Brad also tends to make a statement then add "you know?" in the pregnant pause that follows. Be more assertive Brad, your statements are valid!

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic I laughed about Jeff. on the Bloodborne board

    This seems like another debate that boils down to what a word means more than anything to do with Bloodbourne. File "difficulty" along with "ethics", "feminism", "privilege", "casual" and the rest tha...

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Do You Play Games You Actively Dislike?. on the General Discussion board

    Based on my experience playing World of Warcraft, there are a ton of people out there playing a game they actively dislike. Nothing but complaints and moaning from everyone about everything. I guess f...

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Review.

    Sad to say, but I agree. The levels are way too big, and designed in ways that make unpredictable or unlucky death very likely to occur.

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Quick Look: The Deer God.

    I like how upbeat Alex and Vinny both are about a game that from here looks like a bit of a turd. After all, positivity is good for both mental and physical health.

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Unfinished: Unreal Tournament Pre-Alpha 03/02/2015.

    @gtcknight: @whiteforestparkrangr: I know it makes a difference to start with a half-decent gun or not but I don't really agree it changes the whole genre of the game. Even if you spawn with 5 rail a...

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Unfinished: Unreal Tournament Pre-Alpha 03/02/2015.

    I don't really get what the big difference is with "arena shooters" vs any other type of shooters. Isn't COD multiplayer a bunch of guys in an arena shooting each other? That seems pretty popular. I ...

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Have you seen Citizen Kane?. on the Off-Topic board

    Yes, although if we're taking Orson Welles I prefer The Third Man.I am pretty sure that the reason it is always cited at the "best ever" in polls voted for by film critics is mainly to stick it to th...

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic I know Giantbomb has been looking for a news guy. on the General Discussion board

    I go to Eurogamer and RPS for news and general writing on games and that's fine and sufficient. However I'd still like someone at GB who will write features and longer pieces, or produce videos that a...

    Generally, the worse the game, the better the quick look.
