    Halo: Combat Evolved. It's such a special campaign, Silent Cartographer is one of the best levels in a videogame.Halo 2, 3 and ODST are also great, but the first one is still the best by far. Half-Li...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Did Abby ever apologize for that tweet a while back?. on the General Discussion board

    I agree it wasn't very tasteful and an apology wouldn't have been a bad idea, but at this point, just let it be. Drudging up old minor stuff like this isn't going to help anyone.

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Death Stranding - what did you make of the new gameplay footage?. on the Death Stranding board

    Man, the writing is so bad, like, wow. That's the main thing I'm worried about, the more I see of this game the more I'm certain that the story is going to be the biggest problem with it. I'm especial...

    It took a lot of guts to write something this personal, kudos to you. I don't think I could write something so personal like this. Honestly, you've got confidence in spades to be able to do this.Abby...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic PS4 Pro... worth it at 1080p?. on the PlayStation 4 board

    So I upgraded to a PS4 Pro roughly this time last year, I only play at 1080p. I'd say it's been worth it, most games run smoothly and look clearer. The biggest difference I noticed was with Black Ops...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What to Think About Deadly Premonition 2. on the Deadly Premonition 2: Blessing in Disguise board

    @zeik: Well yeah, the Boston stuff is 2019, modern day, and the New Orleans stuff is presumably 2005. So it's a mix, but I'm wondering what that mix is like, if the modern day is more framing device o...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What to Think About Deadly Premonition 2. on the Deadly Premonition 2: Blessing in Disguise board

    So now that my initial excitement has died down a little more, I've gotten to thinking about it a bit more in terms of what it means for the plot. SPOILER

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What to Think About Deadly Premonition 2. on the Deadly Premonition 2: Blessing in Disguise board

    If it's Switch exclusive I will absolutely buy a switch just for this game. I am so excited. There are a billion ways it could go wrong, and there's never going to be another Deadly Premonition moment...

    In the off chance that Jeff reads this given his currently busy lifestyle and hasn't already heard about these, you can get cat claw covers. A popular brand is called Soft Paws but there are tons of o...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Would Giant Bomb continue without Jeff?. on the General Discussion board

    Rather than it being an issue of the site needing any one specific person, I think the site needs a balance of personalities to work. It's why it's survived the various crew changes over the years. J...

  • Brackstone posted a message on the post Remnant: From the Ashes.

    @dgtlty: I beat this in singleplayer the other day and had an absolute blast, it's probably my favourite Soulsy game not made by From Software (haven't played The Surge yet though).It feels like it's ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Control - Reviews & Impressions. on the Control board

    @nodima: If I might ask a specific question, what's the enemy and combat scenario variety like? One of the main reasons I never got into Alan Wake was that the gameplay, while good, never felt like it...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Why does the combat of Witcher 3 get a lot of flak?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    It's a problem Witcher 2 had as well with animation priority. Basically you get locked into very deliberate animations, making it feel weighty rather than snappy.Okay, but Dark Souls has the same thi...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic The Problem With Google's Stadia Connect Presentations. on the Google Stadia Forum board

    @thepanzini: Not sure I understand your point. Yes Stadia is starting with higher end hardware, but Microsoft can and will scale it up anyway, they're in the data centre game, improving their servers ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic The Problem With Google's Stadia Connect Presentations. on the Google Stadia Forum board

    The thing I can't get past is that Stadia is going to be expensive for a lot of people once you factor in things like internet speeds, internet costs and multiple person households. Going to a store a...

  • Brackstone posted a message on the post Resident Evil 4 (08/23/2019).

    I think if they do another RE game, it should be Revelations 2. It's asymmetrical co-op, so one person can be Barry Burton shooting big guns in typical Resident Evil style while the other person is a...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic They're doing it. They're making a new Matrix movie with Keanu. on the Off-Topic board

    I feel like a new Matrix movie needs to get back to basics and follow more closely after the first film and I'm not sure how they do that if they're beholden to Matrix: Revolutions. Also I feel like ...
