    @thatpinguino: It is certainly true that they are both good writers (though their tastes are both far enough off mainstream that I rarely take their recommendations) but there are no shortage of good...

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic Cara Ellison is taking a break from games writing. on the General Discussion board

    I agree that there's a space for longform articles on the internet. That's because, while video and audio content are much more distracting than written is, they're both far less attractive to people ...

    I was a lot less positive toward this before I heard the guitar covers. Thanks for always refusing to stop playing games, Brad.

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic Live shows for the non US audience?. on the General Discussion board

    There's really no reason GBeast can't do this, once they come up with some programming that fits a streaming format. Streaming during the day on the East Coast certainly doesn't fit the schedules of ...

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic There's something about this one that feels a bit... empty. on the Mortal Kombat X board

    It's tough for fighting game series to iterate meaningfully. You remember that article from awhile back that was talking about how weird it is that the model for sports games is to talk about all of ...

    That was a really good trailer.

    It's way less money if you don't buy the newest, hottest shit.

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic I wanna talk about Heat!. on the Off-Topic board

    @hatking: How about Thief, which is actually kind of a heist film that is by Michael Mann?

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic I wanna talk about Heat!. on the Off-Topic board

    Heat is kind of more a story about neurotic men than it is a crime movie. A lot of machismo and testosterone and poor decisions. It's actually not even one of my favorite Michael Mann movies.

  • Veektarius posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hero Generations.

    I know that it really shouldn't matter; after all, it's a silly mechanics based game and its rules are arbitrary, but I keep getting hung up on how the passage of time seems way out of proportion to t...

    Not going to tell you that there's no John Carpenter in Mass Effect, but I'd say they're mostly trying to emulate Vangelis, who did the music to Blade Runner.@cornbredx said:He's made music for years...

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic Marvel's Daredevil Discussion Thread [Possible Spoilers]. on the Off-Topic board

    I enjoyed it a lot. Everything except for that one episode with Kingpin's origin story. That plotline is a total cliche and did not deserve the time they spent on it. I agree that D'Onofrio stole ...

    I'm occasionally in a Star Wars mood, and when I am, I watch episodes IV and V. I'm not passionate in my love for them, though.@boozak You want to talk about something from Star Wars that doesn't hol...

    Windows 8 was a fine, fast system, but on my older computer I never felt inclined to upgrade.

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic Do you still like superhero movies?. on the Off-Topic board

    I know that psychologically, when say what movies I'm interested in, I feel pretty dumb when I just list a bunch of superhero names. However, in practice, I think that Marvel is aware that it's alway...

  • Veektarius posted a message in the forum topic Watch someone play for low cost or play yourself at a higher cost. on the General Discussion board

    It's not a plausible scenario, but there are some games I am willing to buy a console for, so I would probably still buy some games at $200. I only enjoy watching people play games when the comment...
