• Tortoise posted a message on the post Quick Look: Ghostship Aftermath.

    It won't surprise you to learn that there is a wikipedia article about space exposure. There is another one about sudden decompression. I interpret them as saying that you might last 90 seconds (in a ...

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 07/15/2014.

    The podcast was great, one of the better ones recently. I hope Samantha can guest again if she's in town, and that other guests do become a regular feature. Not necessarily every week, but often. It's...

    Mega Man looks so happy when he jumps, its great.Please do videos for the whole series...

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Videogames 101: games that make you better at playing games on the General Discussion board.

    I think the original list has it right. You could put in any 2D Mario game too and it'd be ideal.

    Can you hook it up to an exercise bike and pedal in virtual reality? I bet there'd be a market for that kind of shit.

    I can just imagine Dan leaning to the left and right when cornering in racing games

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Sega Pleases, Enrages Alien Fans With Isolation's Pre-Order DLC [UPDATED] on the Alien: Isolation board.

    Patrick, if pre-order DLC gets better, bigger or more significant than the throwaway junk and cosmetic baubles its been up until now, that will be a change for the worse, not better.

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic So, why is the reticule not in the middle of the screen? on the Destiny board.

    This is an interesting question. It seems like something a designer wouldn't even think of changing - I don't think I would have.

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic "Huh" - an annoying trend on the Bombcast board.

    For whatever reason, I don't find it too too bad, y'know?

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic Godzilla, Wolfenstein, and Our Obsession With the Same Stories on the Wolfenstein: The New Order board.

    Godzilla and Wolfenstein both have a lot of kitschy, retro appeal to them. Being excited to see one return but not the other probably just reflects your own personal affinity to each of them. Another ...

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Quick Look: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.

    Why do the characters never shut up? Every second of gameplay there is migraine-inducing, overlapping nonsense dialogue from both fighters. SHUT UP!

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Quick Look: MLB 14: The Show (PS4).

    The way the players and their uniforms animate is really impressive. It's still baseball though, so, uh, whatever.

  • Tortoise posted a message in the forum topic My Waning Admiration of Giant Bomb on the General Discussion board.

    There's nothing wrong with the site that couldn't be fixed by a small infusion of fresh blood and new viewpoints from a new editorial staff member (or two). Unfortunately when/if they do hire anyone ...

  • Tortoise posted a message on the post Worth Playing: 04/25/2014.

    I support you being a bit more discriminating about what you include in these videos, but I wonder if a show called "Not Worth Playing" might not also be entertaining. Perhaps Alex could do that one.
