  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic I'm not sure this game can sustain itself for long. on the Evolve board

    I just wonder how long a game like this needs to sustain. It could be a success while also being something people kinda move on from after a few months. Unless the long tail in this game is similar t...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic didn't like DA II combat.. is this any better?. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    Encounters didnt have a ton of variety but DA2 is the best the series has ever played. Its easy to pile on that game because of literally every other choice they made in that game, from only your las...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic didn't like DA II combat.. is this any better?. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    You don't have AI tactics so they basically play themselves. Its worse.

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Wherefore art thou, Smoke?. on the Mortal Kombat X board

    @geraltitude: In the interest of gender equality I think she'd make the cut over, say, a brand new girl. Or like Frost or something embarrassing from right before the reboot.

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Arbitrary versus XIII-2. on the Final Fantasy XIII-2 board

    I should have loved 13-2 based on the quick bullet points describing the game. But how you solved paradoxes was weird and arbitrary, and the pokemon stuff felt weird and arbitrary in a similar way. So...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Dan & Alex have convinced me to buy a WiiU *gasp*. on the Wii U board

    Wind Waker bundle comes with a pretty sweet looking controller so that's the ideal way to go. But the MK8 bundle is going to be much easier to find at the moment.

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Why did Nintendo bother putting Galaxy 2 on the Wii U store?. on the Super Mario Galaxy 2 board

    "Upscaling" isn't a one button effort. People watch Dolphin videos and think its so simple. Do you understand in order to run Galaxy smooth on Dolphin upscaled you need a pretty fucking good rig? Peo...

    I didnt know it was a requirement to update every classic game that shows up in a digital store.

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Scarlett Johannson to star in Ghost in the Shell movie. on the Off-Topic board

    @jesus_phish: You seem to be making a lot of negative assumptions based on blanket statements, to suggest Hollywood hasnt made a good big budget film in years. Many people would disagree with you. Th...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Scarlett Johannson to star in Ghost in the Shell movie. on the Off-Topic board

    I've enjoyed all the weird choices Scarlett's made last couple years. If she signed on there's probably something to the script. Then again I don't think GiTS is god's gift to cyberpunk. Its more dens...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic A depressing thought for the gaming future.. on the General Discussion board

    I'm not a hoarder and I either drop a game because I didn't love it or finish it and move on. I can count the number of games I go back to annually on a single hand, and I just use an emulator for th...

  • bargainben posted a message on the post Assassin's Creed: Unity's First DLC, 'Dead Kings,' Is Coming Next Week.

    Remember how fun the main character was for like the first 10 minutes. All it took was his godfather getting killed and now he's all Connor'd up. Connor literally lost his entire tribe tho, like this...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic PS4 Killing it. 18.5M Consoles Sold & 10.9M PS+ Subs.. on the PlayStation 4 board

    PS4 is kind of the Netflix player lately. But I watch Netflix a lot. If FF14: ARR were cheaper on the monthly I might have stuck with it but (thankfully for my spare time) its just out of my comfort ...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic Kinda Funny Games...Is Giant Bomb?. on the General Discussion board

    Sounded more like wacky morning radio than Giantbomb to me. Wish them luck I guess, but I can barely stand them as it is I don't need a daily "personality fix" of those particular dudes.

    I don't think Mark being a fellow 1up refugee played the biggest part in them getting the gig here.

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic You're forced to kill one genre for ever. What do you do?. on the General Discussion board

    Sport games lend themselves perfectly to the medium. Like, the amount of time people can hold on to grudges over "jock" things is sad and comical.Im kinda ready for the new lazy parody, _____ simulat...

  • bargainben posted a message in the forum topic New player - most memorable experience in gaming since Halo. on the Destiny board

    That you feel the need to bring up "haters" so often in your comment informs your experience came from kind of a bitter spiteful place. Ok, you enjoyed it. Doesn't change what people didn't like. Does...
