Two Worlds II - First off, how fucking dumb is that to slap a 'II' on a game with "Two" in the title? And that voice acting? I guess that's an improvement over the first one. I've never beat this game but I really enjoy the RPG mechanics. A truely hot mess, but I keep going back to it once a year or so.
Alpha Protocol - Don't play it like a shooter and you'll be fine. Clunky as hell and lacked any meaningful character customization (visually speaking), but there's a really cool game under the hood. Doesn't reinvent the wheel or anything, but a modern espionage story feels rare outside the splintercell universe.
No Man's Sky - Just picked this up a few days ago, and while for the first hour or two I was sitting there thinking, "I completely understand why people hated this", the more time I spend with it the more I'm enjoying it. The UI and Inventory management needs to go die in a garbage fire, but warping into a new solar system and seeing bright, beautiful planets continues to take my breath away.
I like Greg, and ya'll should listen to his guest appearance on Danswers if you haven't already. It's incredible. That being said, the cheese factor in this video is high. Not my cup of tea, but I wouldn't hate on anyone who does enjoy it. I get the impression Giant Bomb is doing well, and I'm sure they'd love to cook up their own version of something like this. You know, with less figurative cheese and more nacho cheese.
I wouldn't worry too much about GB's perceived success against other gaming sites. Bigger isn't always better.
I've had a similar issue when using a tv for a monitor - fixed it through the TV's settings, not the computer itself. Usually under picture settings there's an option for stretch or overscan. That's what mine was, anyway. Hope it helps!
