    I am extremely here for this.

    Honestly if the Game Awards went away I would miss it 0%. BAFTA's seem like the awards that actually have interesting choices and provide a platform for variety, DICE is already your AAA love-in among...

    Saying Evangelion is required viewing is like the lamest way to get anyone to watch that thing.

  • bacongames posted a message on the post It's Time to Check Out That Xbox Series X.

    It sure seems like neither of these machines should launch this year except they are because of the holiday spending spree.Since PC graphics card pricing has gotten so offensive, I'm definitely eyeing...

    I had Slave Zero AND Armorines as a kid. Damn buying a game off of its cover as a kid. Of course I beat these trash piles multiple times :(

    If Brad uses the save state he must incur the Punishment(tm) and play Super Mario Bros. Special.

  • bacongames posted a message in the forum topic Hoo boy this DLC is hard as heck. on the Doom Eternal board

    It's funny how the new Doom is taking the exact arc the original ones did where it was a classic the first go, a harder and messier sequel despite having more stuff, and then eventually it dwindles to...

    I'm with Ben, I see no way that any hint system "ruins" anything unless it's shoved in your face in a way that you can't avoid. Giving players options to avoid certain things is the key to making that...

    I'm going to miss Clue Crew. Fingers crossed we can finally figure out that awful vegetable puzzle and solve the Secret of Shadow Ranch before the end.Wish her the best, especially with *gestures wild...

  • bacongames posted a message in the forum topic Mass Layoffs inbound across CBSi. on the General Discussion board

    I get speculating on GB but people being sacked as part of the deal should not be forgotten. The way it's sold as "business as usual" is exactly how they keep getting away with it. It was the thing I ...

  • bacongames posted a message in the forum topic Yikes, turns out this censors any reference to Taiwan or Hong Kong. on the Genshin Impact board

    Spreading the word about this is important. I don't know the dev's positions really so it's a moot point. Standing firm against Blizzard disallowing this shit makes more sense because, they're not und...

    It's funny because I had this thought exercise in my head too, but mostly to remember what even came out this year and give it an inventory in my brain. We're not all the way through it but it's a fun...

  • bacongames posted a message in the forum topic Mass Layoffs inbound across CBSi. on the General Discussion board

    What kind of redundancy could they be addressing if they cut 9 and 12 year veterans of the company? Just shameful. The way we tolerate mass layoffs because it's an "acquisition" is a disgrace and furt...

    This tells me they don't really know what even made those first games enjoyable to begin with. Wow, that dialogue is so bad!

    There's not a single thing I can think of that's "too sacred" to drop or criticize if I found out a principle person involved is mega shitty. What I really care about is how the people around reacted....
