• Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic A new Amnesia game has been announced: Rebirth. on the General Discussion board

    Have to agree that I hope the formula has evolved past "hide/sneak past insta-kill monsters". That style of horror is always diminished, for me at least, by the fact that it's so easy to see all the ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic There's a new story trailer for this, and it's out June 26. on the Ghost of Tsushima board

    On the English vs Japanese thing, I'm actually more bothered by the lip syncing. It's clear the mocap and performances were by the english actors, so that's what I'll probably stick with. Which is a ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic All Systems Goku Staring Jeff and ... ?. on the Anime board

    I feel like a revival of an anime podcast would be best with maybe Jeff and Alex, but watching Jojo's. All the music references would play well with those two.

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Sekiro’s marquee feature just doesn’t cut it. on the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice board

    I see resurrection as an important part of the difficulty balancing, a lot of people think the game is hard, harder than any other fromsoft game, and the resurrection ability is what makes the game m...

    I think it's smart to be honest, not planning around a specific date each year gives them flexibility in how they present their stuff to the world. E3 locks you down in a big way, and while third par...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic GTFO Early Access. on the GTFO board

    I don't have a good enough PC, so I haven't played it myself, but I've watched some streams since this looks so completely up my alley, and yeah, it is, this is the exact kind of vibe I want from thi...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Giant Bomb GOTY 2019 Discussion Thread. on the General Discussion board

    I feel like the format isn't playing to Giantbomb's strengths at all. Their strength is the crew interacting with each other, and these discussions only have brief glimpses of that. A lot of it is one...

    Favourite game of the decade? Bloodborne. Honorable mentions to Banner Saga, Hotline Miami and a bunch of others, but I don't feel like listing them all out right now.What do I think the most importa...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Initial Impressions?. on the Xbox Series X board

    Looks like the monolith from 2001. I wish paddles were a standard for controllers, nice that they're taking features from the Elite pad but I think we're really starting to see a need for paddles in m...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Should I stick with Nioh (regarding later game difficulty)?. on the Nioh board

    @sweetz: Nioh has a serious loot problem. Not only do you get a ton of it that's pointless, but the best loot you get is in fact from player ghosts, so the entire game you'll be using a very limited n...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Should I stick with Nioh (regarding later game difficulty)?. on the Nioh board

    In terms of difficulty, the game does very much get easier as you go along. For reference, the final few missions had a suggested level that was maybe 30 levels higher than what I was, and I had no is...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Which endurance run* should I rewatch?. on the General Discussion board

    Deadly Premonition is the best, followed closely by Contradiction. They both have the best pace and a manageable length, and murder mystery plots make for the best endurance runs. Persona 4 was good ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Best boss fight of 2019?. on the General Discussion board

    Remnant has some good boss fights. Some aren't great, but others are pretty good. Wouldn't say any of them really deserve to be called the worst boss fights, especially in a year with Kronika from MK1...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Destiny 2 on Stadia Apparently Runs in 1080p, Medium Settings. on the Google Stadia board

    I'm wondering why it's so bad. Are the costs of the hardware necessary to run it competitively with PC and consoles (or even to surpass them) too expensive given google's monetization plan? Is portin...

  • Brackstone posted a message on the post Google Stadia.

    @hughj: That's what blows my mind, a decent chunk of their messaging has been raw power, that we'd see the kinds of games that couldn't run on any other platform. I never believed it, but I believed t...

    I think the technical specs of Stadia coming out now put it in the running. It won't win, but it is a mess.
