• acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic What new Game of the Year categories would you like GB to discuss this year?. on the General Discussion board

    This could probably be phrased better, but a "Get out of Your Own Way" award? A lot of games seem to have really cool ideas or are almost really good, but are severely hampered by their own lack of a...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic What should I read after Hyperion?. on the Off-Topic board

    I really loved The Forever War by Joe Haldeman; it's about a war fought so far away that by the time soldiers come back, decades and sometimes centuries have passed on Earth. It's a really interestin...

    How would people feel about a beat-em-up with some more modern trappings, like RPG-like elements or an open world? (kind of like a side-scrolling Yakuza, I guess.) I really like beat-em-ups in theory...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Biggest surprise and disappointment from this year?. on the General Discussion board

    I don't want to get all conspiracy-theory, but it seems like Richard Garfield has been designing games that are a little... greedy. If anyone here follows board game news, they might have heard of a g...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Civ 6 on switch. on the Sid Meier's Civilization VI board

    I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt regarding the port quality; the fact thta it's coming out this year means the devs have probably already dealt with the load times, and if the Switch...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic So it’s now out for the switch is it any good. on the Into the Breach board

    How does this game compare to Bad North on the switch? Both seem to have a similar framework (tactical roguelikes centered around bite-size maps), and I want to buy one but am not sure which one I sh...
