    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...

    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.

    @shiftygism:Glad I'm not the only one thinking of Samurai Jack, I'm definitely getting those vibes too. I think it's mostly how it manages to tell a contained part of a story in half an hour primarily...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Which game have you been most disappointed by this year?. on the General Discussion board

    MK11. Story wise it felt like they burned everything good they had done in MKX and MK11 just to give them the option of doing yet another MK rehash for the next entry. Call me crazy for being investe...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Anyone watch The Mandalorian?. on the Off-Topic board

    @nutter: Werner Herzog didn't direct it at all, it's written by Jon Favreaeu and directed by a variety of folks, most notably Taika Waititi.Werner Herzog is acting in it though, and boy is he good.

    I think it's going to be a bit more of a tight race between Anthem and Death Stranding, but ultimately go to Death Stranding. Jeff and maybe Brad might fall on the Anthem side of things cause they see...
