  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Civ VI Adds New "Leader Pass", And I Don't Know How to Feel. on the Sid Meier's Civilization VI board

    This feels cheap and unnecessary even if it's free for owners of the Anthology. The base game already has tons of leaders to provide variety and outside of some few people who really think that they h...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic With backwards compatibility the norm does anyone else feel nostalgia for consoles with fresh zero backlog libraries?. on the General Discussion board

    I see what you mean by this, but I think this generation more than any other in history feels a little half-assed that nobody is committing to it and I wonder if we'd be better off just skipping the P...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic PS5 Slim Rumors. Will you wait?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm not paying launch price for 2-year old tech (actually with the price increase in my region it technically costs now more than at launch), so Sony will need to do something to make the package more...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    @klestigt: I'll agree to the extent that people should just stop using the words "overrated" and "underrated". Nowadays overrated simply means popular game that didn't hit with a person as much as it ...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    Agree on The Last of Us talk. If they had brought that script to Hollywood, no studio would have touched it. It doesn't do anything different from the thousands of other post-apocalyptic monster movie...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Jeff Gerstmann was fired from Giant Bomb !!! WTF. on the General Discussion board

    @sammo21: I think you're ignoring the possibility that the timing is all just a coincidence. Both parties knew that it was going to happen, it was a question of who shoots first. Jeff didn't need to s...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    Fallout 1 is better than 2. Fallout 2 has a phenomenal middle part that gives you a lot of fun things to do, but it has a terrible beginning and an end that forces you to play a certain way, and it g...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Jeff Gerstmann was fired from Giant Bomb !!! WTF. on the General Discussion board

    I don't see how being a founder of a business should give anyone immunity from being fired. When you decide to sell, you become just another employee. Jeff probably knew it was gonna happen eventuall...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Jeff Gerstmann was fired from Giant Bomb !!! WTF. on the General Discussion board

    Jeff said it himself, he was going to leave anyway. So anybody who wants to believe he would have stayed at Giant Bomb forever if it weren't for those evil RV people is living in a fantasy land.I don...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic So many Silent Hill games announced. Is this Konami's comeback?. on the General Discussion board

    Fuck Konami, I don't care what they do. I knew they'd come crawling back to their franchises eventually but I'm already past them. The best thing they can do is keep releasing their old games like th...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic What is a relatively harmless popular social media convention that you refuse to engage in?. on the Off-Topic board

    I just hate memes that have been beaten to death and then some that frequently appear everywhere, and sadly, sometimes also in Giant Bomb content. Such as saying "nice" every time the number 69 shows...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic My one big problem with the upcoming RE4 Remake. on the Resident Evil 4 board

    Conceptually the idea of a knife breaking after a few slashes is pretty stupid, but I personally never liked the idea of min-maxing in an action game, which is probably why they made the change. The k...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Can anyone present a flaw in the Clean house or no russian levels of COD?. on the General Discussion board

    The story in Call of Duty games has always been garbage so I don't see why they need to keep doing this shit if it isn't for the cheap shock value. There is an unlimited number of ways they could have...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Is Hellena Taylor Boycott Justifed?. on the Bayonetta 3 board

    I think the nature of video game voice acting is simply such that it's very difficult to make a living out of it because there just isn't a lot of work to do and you gotta constantly hustle to get the...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Is Hellena Taylor Boycott Justifed?. on the Bayonetta 3 board

    @turtlefish said: We have firm evidence that a lot of video game companies abuse their coders, artists, QA people, etc. It's become so much of a trope, that studios are started with "we treat our work...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Is Hellena Taylor Boycott Justifed?. on the Bayonetta 3 board

    @sethmode said:I don't really understand why a 10 to 15,000 increase would make anyone's opinion of the situation change. That's still an awful, paltry sum that someone like Mila Jovivich could make i...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Is Hellena Taylor Boycott Justifed?. on the Bayonetta 3 board

    @theonewhoplays said:@apewins: A $100M budget would put the game in the list of the most expensive games ever made, while Bayonetta 1 and 2 sold a bit over a million each. That would basically sink th...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic Is Hellena Taylor Boycott Justifed?. on the Bayonetta 3 board

    I am not boycotting a game that hundreds if not thousands of people have worked on for several years based on some he said/she said bullshit on Twitter where neither party has brought any evidence to ...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic 4090 reviews are hitting. on the General Discussion board

    Hot take, the 4090, same as the 3090 before it, is just irresponsible waste of money and electricity for almost any consumer that doesn't need it for work. The 4060-4080 range is what most people sho...

  • apewins posted a message in the forum topic The Super Mario Bros Movie (2023). on the Super Mario Bros. board

    This is a teaser, not a trailer. Looks like Nintendo is still keeping almost everything about this movie in secret. No sight of Peach or DK, Luigi shows up but doesn't say anything. Mario says 2 non-...
