• ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Doom 64: Apparently It's Polarizing?. on the Doom 64 board

    I totally played through one of the PC Total Conversions for Doom 64 last year and was generally impressed with it. It's definitely going for a different thing, between the moody, atmospheric soundtr...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic The Wrong Direction: The Storytelling of Fahrenheit. on the Indigo Prophecy board

    While I've never played Indigo Prophecy, nor do I really want to, I finally got around to playing Beyond: Two Souls this year. I think the thing that struck me most about the game (other than the part...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Episode 02.

    @bisonhero: Even with the critical path, you still need something like 120 Golden Bananas alongside the Rareware and Nintendo Coins (not to mention enough blueprints to make the final level's timer re...

    @vicious17 said:@nameredacted:Wait that was DLC? I remember playing as Ada, but I thought it was just an extra post game mode. Did RE4 have DLC?Not exactly DLC. Separate Ways was added in the PS2 vers...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Episode 01.

    This first episode was everything I wanted it to be, but I will admit I'm afraid a lot of this series is going to boil down to them forgetting everything week-to-week, getting continually lost in DK64...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic They released 20 minutes of gameplay. on the Marvel's Avengers board

    The most damning thing I can say about this footage is that it looks like something that would've been exciting five years ago. Beyond the broader problem of me just being sort of Marvel'd out these d...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Age of Wonders: Planetfall.

    @peezmachine: I’ve always thought of Age of Wonders as sitting in a middle ground between the pace of a more traditional 4X and something a little more straightforwardly war game-ish like Heroes of Mi...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic The Surge is Dead Space and Dark Souls rolled into one and I'm all in. on the The Surge board

    The Surge is solid, and I think the devs at Deck 13 are one or two games away from making something really amazing. For a sophomore effort, it's a pretty serious step above Lords of the Fallen (a game...

    Rebuild of ArbitraryWater 2.22: Sometimes You Can (Not) Go Home Again

    This is your yearly reminder that The Temple of Elemental Evil is a fantastically weird, difficult, singular game that I will never stop plugging.When I started blogging on this site a decade ago, my ...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic How does everyone feel about the difficulty?. on the Fire Emblem: Three Houses board

    I think the game is pretty easy for the most part, and I seriously recommend people play on Hard/Classic if they have any experience with Fire Emblem or turn-based strategy in general. I'm not asking ...

    Really liked Michael and Kallie on this episode. They brought a bunch of enthusiasm and energy to the whole thing that I appreciated.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Episode 12.

    This series was a lot of fun, sometimes because of but often in spite of GTA Online apparently being a giant trash fire of a game.

  • ArbitraryWater rated MoonlightMoth's review for iFuror Divinus, as helpful.
  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Indie Game of the Week 131: Rainbow Moon. on the Rainbow Moon board

    This is maybe one of the more tepid endorsements of a game I've ever seen. "It's not great, but the numbers are good at going up, so that's good." I do feel like if I wanted something like that, I'd g...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic You Have Been LIED TO! Hatoful Boyfriend Is The Evangelion Of Video Games You Never Knew You Had!. on the Hatoful Boyfriend board

    Having watched you play this live, this game really does leave all of its weirdest fuckery behind this hidden, literal 5-hour-long route. At some point it just turns into Akira, and that's neat.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Anime & Cartoon Megathread V: Boogiepop Doesn't Post. on the Off-Topic board

    @alkusanagi: I did watch the Netflix dub of EVA, and I didn’t feel like I missed anything (in fact, I feel like I picked up on a lot more than I did with the ADV dub when I was a teenager.)I think the...

    At this point I'm 100% down the hype train, especially after hearing positive things from press previews and early leaks. Gonna go with Black Eagles for the first playthrough, but I think it's probab...
