    @sethmode: It is, but the people up top don't care. Videogames is basically a gold rush industry at the moment. The people funding it are just squeezing out all the profit they can while the boom last...

    "Year of the Card Game" was like 2-3 years ago. Last year was the "Year of Card Games that has been stuck in development for too long to catch the trend".

    I believe the AC3 remaster was part of some Odyssey pack, but not available before some time this year.

    Not a huge fan of this episode, but I guess it's pretty much par for the course of where the series has been the last few seasons. The heel turn character progression of Arya and Sansa (which admitted...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What is the SINGLE key feature PS5 needs?. on the The Next-Gen PlayStation Forum board

    I think it's easy to dismiss the value of just processing power and games utilizing it. We tend to think there wasn't a major shift between this and last generation, but then you go back and you're ju...

    This reminds me a LOT of Reus. While they might not look too similar they share the same chill vibe and the same core mechanics of putting this thing next to that thing to get bonuses etc.

    @tennmuerti: I "resolved" a technical issue that was impacting game performance. If you have issues with stuttery main screen and cutscenes it might help resolve that (and have the nice side effect of...

    While it's not quite the same thing earlier this year I discovered how to drastically reduce the turn timers in Total Warhammer. I went from having put hundreds of hours into the game without ever fi...

    @elite49: The Xbox One backwards compatability was only introduced two years after launch though. It had already lost most of the potential transitional benefit as people had already made their choice...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post 579: BATS NOT BALLS.

    @cyrusraven: I think their issue is mostly regarding the people who are way too into weed. That's at least the vibe they've usually projected.

    @cornfed40: I dunno, the read I got at the end of that scene was Cersei being distraught about having to whore herself out again. She's gotten used to holding power through name and force and here's a...

    After 6 seasons of drama and postponing it's nice to see the show finally dive heads deep into the fantasy promise from the end of season 1. Not that it hasn't been part of the series all along, but i...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Easy mode in Souls games - an argument against. on the Souls board

    So I finally played through Subnautica last week. Subnautica is a game about exploring an underwater world. Subnautica has no map. The entire point of the game is that it has no map. Combined with low...

    @justin258: I think you're making this much more muddled than it needs to be. Think of it this way; Every game is built on a few "pillars", a handful of main activities that is supposed to engage the ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Help define what an RPG actually is. on the General Discussion board

    Almost every game has you taking the role of a character and lets you decide what actions that character does. What sets RPGs apart in my eyes is that the systems and mechanics of the game facilitate...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Why is everyone hating on Epic over exclusives?. on the PC board

    @dudeglove: Steam never really did exclusivity at all. There might've been games that were only possible to play through Steam, but you were able to buy them through a plethora of platforms due to Ste...

    I see Scanlon, Snider and Ryckert as well. Guess someone made a themed party and they happened to pull footage from that.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Why is everyone hating on Epic over exclusives?. on the PC board

    @mattyftm: You're giving me flashbacks of the "support the developers" era with that rationalization. When looking at the exclusivity argument you have to realize that it was pretty much unprecedented...

    A potion is somewhere between one and two healthy glugs. It's not small enough to be a shot, and it's not big enough to be something you sip, the idea being that's it's something you can easily drink ...
