• Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic PS5 - And Backwards Compatability to Play Old Games. on the General Discussion board

    When I answered the first poll my thought process was that I already have a bunch of digital PS4 games and I don't want that library to be arbitrarily tied down to an "old box". If I can put my PS3 d...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What game have you had the most fun with this year?. on the General Discussion board

    Well, I've already put over 1500 hours into WoW Classic, so it's definitely "most" something.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic The Witcher (Netflix Show) Discussion. on the Off-Topic board

    Finished the season and I gotta say I liked it overall. I would imagine anyone who's not already invested in the universe would bounce off it hard though, with the way the story is structured and the ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic The Witcher (Netflix Show) Discussion. on the Off-Topic board

    Only watched first episode so far and, as others have said, it felt rushed. This first episode should've really only been the Ciri story-line, functioning as a prologue, and then you open the second ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic GameStop pulling out of Nordic countries. on the GameStop board

    Coming from someone living in a small town in Norway where there was a GameStop for a little while, they just got out-competed. Every town has electronic stores selling consoles, and so they also sel...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Initial Impressions?. on the Xbox Series X board

    I think the design looks good, and I'm sure the specs are great, but considering how little play my current gen XboX has seen it's hard for me to be excited about their new console. Hopefully all the...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Will this game make you get VR?. on the Half-Life: Alyx board

    Ye, this poll is sorely missing a "don't care about Half Life" option.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Have you noticed a decline in forum activity?. on the General Discussion board

    From my perspective the site re-design pretty much killed the forums. They might've been on a down-slope already, but there was a very clear and noticeable drop when the redesign happened.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Are you kinda glad this year’s holiday lineup is weak?. on the General Discussion board

    Unfortunately for me WoW Classic came along and pretty much ruined all my plans. There has been several games coming out that I was really looking forward to (can't believe I haven't even touched the...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic How are people liking the game?. on the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order board

    Wait, this game is basically Star Wars Souls ? I had completely written it off after E3, but if that's the case my interest is peaking.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic How do you feel about D4 being an MMO-lite?. on the Diablo IV board

    I feel like this is pretty much the inevitable progression of the genre. We've been seeing games like this popping up recently, and it's just a natural fit. Personally I'm much concerned about what t...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post EX: Cook Serve Delicious! 3?!.

    Looks really promising. Cut a lot of the fat added in the second and brought back some of the good stuff from the first. There was a simplistic purity to the first game though, and like the second it...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post MediEvil.

    This looks like it controls like garbage.

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Disco Elysium.

    From what I understand there are no combat or recurring mini-game mechanics in this game, right ? It's just all conversations and figuring out how to progress through the story, very much akin to a P...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic I don't get the purpose of Boss run-ups in modern games. on the General Discussion board

    Sometimes it's nice to have a little lull before the storm. While there certainly are games where you just wanna go again asap, having some time to breathe, calm down and rethink things can in some c...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Borderlands 3. on the Borderlands 3 board

    Having put a good few hours into the game now it's most definitely more of the same in many ways, but there is a major difference between this one and the old ones that not many people are talking abo...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Borderlands 3. on the Borderlands 3 board

    How are these games on consoles ? I've only ever played them on PC and usually stuck to fairly crit-centric builds. Is the aim assist on consoles fairly minimal or super generous similar to Destiny ?

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Anyone jumping into WoW Classic?. on the World of Warcraft board

    @casepb: I got into Barrens fairly quickly and as people started trickle in some of them were disappointed at how quiet it was. Left for Silverpine and WC for a few hours, came back and it was just a ...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Rebel Galaxy Outlaw.

    For as much as I loved Rebel Galaxy I'm not sure about this one. It's very much a re-hash of the first game with different combat and a bunch of new auxiliary features, and one of my favorite things ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic There's A Bloodborne Card Game And It's Somehow Harder And Meaner Than The Video Game. on the Bloodborne board

    I'm usually pretty immune to merchandising stuff like this, but hot damn this got me excited.
