• Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What is the SINGLE key feature PS5 needs?. on the The Next-Gen PlayStation Forum board

    I'm going to say low price, but I think it could do ok at $499 USD, giving them wiggle room for price drops, but $400 would be great for them. Any more than $500 and they'll run into a lot of backlash...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic What games do you feel were treated unfairly upon release?. on the General Discussion board

    Max Payne 3 is one of the best shooters ever made, Mad Max is good fun and I'd argue by far the best out of the games with Batman-esque combat. Deus Ex Mankind Divided is still a fantastic Deus Ex ga...

    @bladeofcreation said:I liked the episode, I legit laughed at the blue eyes scene and the dragons staring at Jon when he was with Dany.I'm really kind of over the whole thing about who gets to rule W...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Shlooters with even "okay" gunplay?. on the General Discussion board

    @gundato: From the gameplay I saw of EDF5, it seems like most enemies flinch to gunfire now, especially with the new bipedal enemies it can interrupt their attacks and such even if you don't kill them...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Shlooters with even "okay" gunplay?. on the General Discussion board

    Maybe EDF? I played a little of EDF 4.1 at a friends house a while ago, and recently saw some videos of EDF 5, and it's making me really want to get into EDF now that I can (but not the new one). Enem...

    It was fine, a little mechanical in places, but that's expected in order to get the season going. Thoughts on specifics ahead. SPOILER

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Help define what an RPG actually is. on the General Discussion board

    I think an rpg is something where you build a character over time, usually through choices regarding abilities, stats or equipment, with a specific function in mind. For example, you make choices reg...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Why is everyone hating on Epic over exclusives?. on the PC board

    @dudeglove: But Valve made Half-Life 2, they created from the ground up and owned it wholly, and over time Steam became central to how it and other Source engine games operated. Epic doesn't make most...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Games with intense and dense world-building?. on the General Discussion board

    There's a lot going on in Morrowind, numerous factions, tons of history, and it's all somewhat atypical for fantasy games. Definitely not high fantasy with mages and castles and kings, and far more u...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Why is everyone hating on Epic over exclusives?. on the PC board

    I really feel like if you look at the epic store with any sort of scrutiny you'll start to see all the issues with it. To address specific points, nobody is going exclusive on the epic store because o...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Now that you've played Sekiro, how does it stack up to previous From games? Also adding into the mix, Nioh.. on the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice board

    It's tougher to learn to learn initially, but less demanding than Bloodborne at it's hardest. As long as you focus on avoiding the unblockable attacks, you can just block pretty much everything else,...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Are the skins really that bad?. on the Apex Legends board

    The legendaries are pretty good, but they're also super rare. The rest range from awful to okay, and the battlepass didn't add any that were all that interesting, and didn't add any legendaries. If y...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic "How Anthem Went Wrong". on the Anthem board

    A lot of the stuff in this article sounds like the same issues that happened with Mass Effect Andromeda. You would've thought it would have been a wake up call to Bioware and EA, but here we are agai...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Us Movie Impressions (spoilers). on the Off-Topic board

    I liked it a lot, I think it's incredibly well acted and shot, but it feels like it falls into genre conventions a little too much (2nd act is fairly standard home invasion stuff), and they struck the...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Battle Royale Battle Royale: Which is your favorite?. on the General Discussion board

    So far it's Apex Legends. It certainly has it's issues, but the respawn system easily makes it miles ahead of the rest, and unlike Blackout's modes with respawning, it feels fully integrated and well...

  • Brackstone posted a message on the post Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

    As someone who's a big fan of the Souls style games, I love how different this seems. It's fascinating how you can see the evolution of their design from Demon's Souls to Sekiro.

    @gundato: But they aren't even close to being the same. Epic store games cost more in certain territories, aren't available in some countries, they don't have native controller support, big picture mo...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Obsidians new RPG (The Outer Worlds) no longer coming to Steam until 2020. on the The Outer Worlds Forum board

    I still can't understand how people think this is good or healthy for the industry. Products are being removed from a storefront and sold elsewhere with fewer/worse features, sometimes at a higher pr...

    As someone who currently lives in Canada, streaming videogames seems like such a laughable concept to me. Internet is slow and expensive for much of the world. Significant infrastructure improvements...

    Call me crazy, but this game is actually pretty damn cool, especially given how cheap it is.
