• ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Which game should I play next?. on the General Discussion board

    I think interested parties should at least try to experience Mass Effect Andromeda so they can understand that game’s ineptitude firsthand. Oh, you wanted to play something good? Then, I dunno, Prey. ...

    Oh, hot takes you say? Well then. I apologize in advance.Metal Gear Solid 4 is a bunch of aggravating, self-indulgent wankery barely pretending to be a video game, and the fact that people held it up ...

    Whoops, accidentally put several hours into that Tales of Symphonia sequel. Please send help.
  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Saturday Summaries 2018-05-19: Millennial Edition. on the General Discussion board

    Like you, I was only mildly on-board with My Hero Academia after its first season. It wasn't until the second season that I understood what all the kids on the internets were so excited about. It's a ...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Steam is apparently launching a purge of risque visual novels: Updated!. on the Steam board

    It takes this long for Valve to start giving a shit about the content on their service again, and they decide that softcore porn Visual Novels are the games worth going after. What am I supposed to ir...

    @frytup said:Still plugging away (haven't had a ton of time this past week) and love pretty much everything about it except for combat difficulty. It's way too easy. The game director has said balance...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post The Zelda Scramble.

    Alex's glee whenever Dan is confused or incredulous is maybe my favorite thing about this video. I'd love to see more of this!

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post Ranking of Fighters 0013: Fighters Destiny and BIO F.R.E.A.K.S..

    I remember Bio F.R.E.A.K.S. only in the context of seeing the box a lot in the N64 section when I rented games, so this video was a bit of a revelation for my younger self. It, uh, looks really bad. O...

    This sounds just weird enough to be a plausible Nintendo move.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Your Dekker stories. on the BattleTech board

    Dekker got blown up during the first "real" story mission to retrieve the Argo. Uh, I think it's taught me that I need to upgrade to bigger mechs as soon as possible, because the small ones sure do c...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Anime & Cartoon Megathread V: Busy Thinking About Hellshake Yano. on the Off-Topic board

    Darling in the Franxx is definitely starting to get crazy in the way I've wanted it to since the start, now that they've graduated from SPOILER . I dunno, wouldn't have guessed that the show I descri...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic May Maturity 09: The Legend of Kyrandia Book 3: Malcolm's Revenge (Outro). on the The Legend of Kyrandia: Malcolm's Revenge board

    Based on what I've read, the points in Malcom's Revenge are some sort of goof on the way other adventure games keep track of points and it's actually impossible to get all of them.I wonder if the atte...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Released today, any impressions?. on the Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire board

    @tennmuerti: It definitely seems like they're building upon a lot of the mechanical tweaks and changes they made with the expansions to POE 1 (which I meant to play, but never got around to.) I seem t...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic May Maturity 09: The Legend of Kyrandia Book 3: Malcolm's Revenge (Intro). on the The Legend of Kyrandia: Malcolm's Revenge board

    This is a weird coincidence. One of the few Youtube LP-ers I follow has actually been playing through this. It seems like Malcom's Revenge has a certain Quest for Glory-esque flexibility in how you ca...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic RAGE 2 leaked UPDATE. on the Rage 2 board

    Uh, sure, I guess? I'll play another game from the people who made DOOM 2016. I'd even consider playing a sequel to RAGE.

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Released today, any impressions?. on the Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire board

    Much like the first game, it's definitely going for a bit of a slow burn in these opening hours, but it seems really solid thus far. I wish it bothered to tell me what my choices were when I imported ...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message in the forum topic Playing the people we hate; Does a "bad" protagonist make a bad game?. on the General Discussion board

    I’ve always kinda thought the point of Kvothe is that he’s an extraordinarily talented but supremely arrogant brat who is eventually going to suffer the tragic consequences of his attitude and actions...

  • ArbitraryWater posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Episode 154.

    @sparky_buzzsaw: I think expecting any sort of genuine Battletech discussion from this website is a stretch. Austin and Rob had an in-depth podcast discussion about it over on Waypoint, which is proba...
