    I don't think there's ever been a game like King of Dragon Pass, and I doubt there ever will be again. You play as a leader of a tribe in the fictional world of Glorantha, but whatever you're picturin...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic I can't tell if the hype for Death Stranding is ironic. on the Hideo Kojima board

    I ended up re-watching the Best of Giant Bomb for the Quiet Man stuff, and that game's story is dumb and ridiculous enough that it makes me think it could've been written by Kojima; the only thing th...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Good puzzle game recommendations?. on the General Discussion board

    Baba Is You is the best puzzle game I've ever played, although Portal 2 is my favorite; I'm just consistently impressed by the amount of intelligence and detail in that game.If you have a Switch, ther...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Are you going to watch Stranger Things Season 3?. on the Off-Topic board

    I don't love the show, but I think it's well-crafted and well-acted, so probably. I'm still working through the re-release of Evangelion, though.

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic I can't tell if the hype for Death Stranding is ironic. on the Hideo Kojima board

    @sweep: I pretty much completely agree with you; every word ever spoken or written by Kojima has read to me as incredibly pretentious at best, and downright sexist at worst. Hearing Dan gush that he t...

    @80poundgames: Thanks for clearing that up! I thought that would have been an uncharacteristic oversight otherwise, glad it's just me not knowing enough about flares.

  • acharlie1377 posted a message on the post Episode 05.

    Am I an idiot or should those flares not work underwater? Is that a thing flares can do that I'm not aware of?

    @deathstriker said:It was a somewhat pointless E3. All these games are supposedly releasing in 2020, yet they don't have any gameplay to show. It doesn't seem like there's anything major for 2019.I d...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic The Official NINTENDO Thread. on the E3 2019 board

    Overall I thought it was a pretty great event, but the Dark Crystal announcement confused and kind of annoyed me. The game itself sounds interesting, but Netflix and Nintendo partnered up to do a game...

    @poprocksandsoda: Definitely shoot for the hats! If you shoot a hat off and then collect it, you can put it on a character later. Also, make sure to check out all the side objectives and non-combat ar...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Turn-based strategy recommendations please. on the General Discussion board

    I'd strongly recommend Steamworld Heist; it's kind of like a 2D XCOM, set in the Steamworld universe. Not too complicated, but it's tons of fun and I've put about 65 hours into it on Switch, and it's...

    @count_zero: Same here. Is it troubling that not even the speed test for Stadia is working?

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic I need help with CIv 5. on the Sid Meier's Civilization V board

    This is why I don't play Civ 5 or Civ 6 anymore. I don't like playing for military victory because I find it one-note, but if you play anything else you're essentially playing a veeeeeeeeeery slow-mov...

    I honestly never knew premium membership came with ad-free podcasts; they're such an insignificant and skippable thing that I never even considered anyone at GB would ever be tasked with creating two ...

    @deathstriker: The fact that he was in denial after that is almost as bad as Grey Worm actively supporting it. If Jon had never spoken to Tyrion, it's very possible that Dany would have never been sto...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Game of Thrones - Season 8 - Game Over. on the Off-Topic board

    I think Bran is kind of a "Tetris is the best video game" pick for king. Anyone else would cause a war, or just be laughed at like poor Edmure. People would kill Sansa just because she's a woman. Bran...
