    @adamxkuhn: Damn, while it comes off as a unique and interesting idea I can't help but think it's massively flawed. It's especially bad that it doesn't tell you this is happening, so for a decent port...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Obsidian are finally making the spiritual succesor to New Vegas. on the The Outer Worlds Forum board

    Well, that gameplay sure makes this game look waaaay more like Fallout, unlike the trailer which had some serious Borderlands vibes. Hell, it has "energy" and "VATS". Can't say I'm a fan of the old c...

    @brackstone: Giantbomb is literally on the voting jury, so yeah, it would be kinda awkward.

    @superharman: What major releases did Jeff like this year ? I haven't really followed the site too closely, but everything I've heard from Jeff is him grumbling about games other people are having a g...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What's the last game that made you wish you played it sooner?. on the General Discussion board

    I think the last game I got really into years after release was Torchlight 2. Looking back I have a history with isometric aRPGs and being lttp. I did the same thing for both Grim Dawn and Path of Ex...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Done with this until they introduce some kind of progression. on the Artifact board

    @bladededge: Have they actually confirmed that the free draft will stay forever ? Last time I checked in it had a rotation date that seemed to indicate it might not always be available.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic I just started this and omg that white loading screen. on the Assassin's Creed Odyssey board

    I can't remember a white loading screen either. But I do remember that for some reason there was a white flash during the initial boot, between the disclaimer and main menu. Was super annoying.

    Checked out a few reviews and they're somewhat split. Some people saying it's trash, others saying it's fine but nothing amazing. Everyone agrees that it's much more Souls than any previous title tho...

    @vortextk: The thing that kept me going is the same thing that's kept me going through all Bethesda titles, exploration. Admittedly this game didn't exactly deliver as well, but it still kept me going...
