  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Best Kart Racer. on the General Discussion board

    I think Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is pretty clearly the winner here. Not only is it super polished and fun, but the soundtrack is all-time great and the amount of content is staggering. It has 48 tracks! A...

    @clagnaught: I figured. I just liked the idea of someone playing 2 90 hour sessions of Tacoma. Even in my worst Everquest days I never went over 36 or so.

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic How do you guys play your games?. on the General Discussion board

    I tend to play one 'big' (lengthy, big budget) game at a time, but sprinkle in other stuff in between. Recently I played through Super Mario Odyssey but I also played a few random games of Picross S ...

    @frodobaggins: I get what you're saying here, but holy heck do I not want a game with a sympathetic Nazi character in 2017. In 2015 I might have been interested in that, but these days? Nope nope nope...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic How'd you feel about the "lack" of music?. on the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild board

    I think it fit the game well, since the appearance of music often meant something was happening in the game and marked an act of discovery (like finding a giant Talus or whatever). On the other hand ...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Is Skyrim worth giving another shot?. on the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim board

    I liked Skyrim when it came out (finished the main quest and some other questlines; played about 50ish hours) but if you didn't enjoy it I have a hard time thinking the Switch version is going to cha...

  • BigSocrates posted a message in the forum topic Will you pick up Doom on the switch?. on the Doom board

    Not interested. Doom for me is about the atmosphere and intensity and shrinking that down to a tiny screen makes it seem much less worthwhile. Plus I'm not spending $60 for a game I already have. I'm...

    Always a shame when people lose their jobs. I liked Torchlight on XBLA a lot but never played TL II because it never came to console. I have it on PC and should play it there I guess. Hob seems like ...
