• Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic I can't understand the audio, but subs are bad.. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    I've not run into any issues understanding anyone, but perhaps that's just because most of the accents seem to be from the UK so I'm used to them? Also I have subtitles on but then I do that with ever...

  • Y2Ken posted a message on the post Giant Bomb Mailbag: Hot Newz Edition.

    Hello to all you wonderful Kite Co. people. You're all crazy and I love you for it. Keep doing what you do, and bringing us tales from the EVElands. That story of your people helping HERO to take out...

  • Y2Ken posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 05/26/2015.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that maybe the Chrono Cross 10 was exactly what GameSpot needed. I don't think a game can be completely "perfect" - Ocarina of Time certainly isn't, as Jeff made ...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Giant Bombcast on Spotify?. on the Bombcast board

    I use Spotify pretty much every day so I'd probably listen to the podcast this way at least some of the time if it was there. It wouldn't necessarily make my life any easier than how I currently liste...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Would you rather have: Super Smell or Object Knowledge (neither can be turned off, they work all the time except when asleep). on the Off-Topic board

    I don't want either of these things if they can't be turned off. I don't want to get flashes of an object's history every time I touch anything. The smell doesn't seem much better either, especially i...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Is this a lock for Game of the Year?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    It's fantastic for sure, but there's quite a few things still scheduled for this year. MGS, Arkham, Bloodborne are all obvious contenders but then we haven't even hit E3 yet so it's quite possible so...

    Drew, Mary, and Andy is a squad I can get behind.

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Is Destiny a game for me?. on the Destiny board

    If you're just looking to play co-op with randoms but not talking to them, then you'll miss out on the most exciting parts of Destiny. There's still plenty of cool stuff in there that you can play tha...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Why does Geralt talk in fragmented sentences?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    Yeah, I like his voice and style. He just doesn't mince his words: he's somewhat introverted and not much of a conversationalist, so he keeps his sentences to the bare minimum he needs to get his poi...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Gwent: Best Open World Mini Game?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    I'm enjoying it a lot. That said, I don't think it would work as a multiplayer game unless they decided to only allow a selection of pre-built decks. There's too many cards that are just outright bet...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Blood and Broken Bones! Difficulty The Gameplay in General.. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    One thing I do really appreciate is that levels aren't the be-all-and-end-all. Quite a lot of RPGs with clearly designated player and enemy levels will scale you down to doing no damage against enemie...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Blood and Broken Bones! Difficulty The Gameplay in General.. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    I've found Quen to be incredibly useful in combat so far, having that as a "safety net" if you do get hit that will protect you and knock back anything that gets right up in your face is really nice w...

  • Y2Ken posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Episode 0.

    This is it, living the dream!I'm very excited about my weekly audio dose of Alex and Vinny. And if this is a "short" episode... Oh boy!

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Which Not "Mario Party" Party game would you like GB West to Play?. on the General Discussion board

    Crash Bash is a great good game. There's no full party mode I don't think, but the minigames themselves are pretty good.

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Is there too much content on the site?. on the Bomb Squad board

    I think it's obviously better to have too much than not enough. I don't watch absolutely everything but I do at the least listen to the majority of it (sometimes I'll put a show like the Old Games Sho...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Explain your Giant Bomb username and avatar image!. on the Off-Topic board

    Name is a blend of my name (Ken) and Y2K, which I liked because I needed to come up with a username around the late 90s when people were discussing the upcoming millennium and I liked the tie-in betwe...

  • Y2Ken posted a message on the post Quick Look: Destiny: House of Wolves.

    I like Destiny and this expansion seems pretty cool, but it's come out at a really bad time. Just started on Witcher III and still deep in Mortal Kombat X and Bloodborne, with Splatoon due next week t...

  • Y2Ken posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Microphone Check.

    Never enough podcasts for me... especially when one includes Vinny and Alex. Can't wait!

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic House of Wolves is pretty legit. on the Destiny board

    I'm kinda excited about the new stuff in House of Wolves, but it's come out at a terrible time. Witcher 3 just out and I'm still knee-deep in Mortal Kombat X and Bloodborne... I'm just not sure that I...

  • Y2Ken posted a message in the forum topic Never played a MMOBA before.... on the Smite board

    I presume he's talking about on console, where there is a beta going on. But yeah, go try it for free on the PC (it'll probably run on most things) and see what you think. It's a neat game, I actually...
