    They should definitely do an East vs West stream for this. Even just the quicklook was a blast to watch.

    Avalanche being on it is exciting news, I really liked Mad Max. That said, this trailer was really not my thing. I'm all for crazy post apocalyptic raider types, but mean-mugging for the camera like ...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Playing the people we hate; Does a "bad" protagonist make a bad game?. on the General Discussion board

    I think the key to having well written morally bad characters is consequences. I think the only games truly successful at having morally bad protagonists are the Kane and Lynch games. They're evil in ...

    I'm a little concerned that thematically this will be too close to it's predecessor. They both seem like very much turn of the century, end of the wild west stories. The focus on the gang and presuma...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Soooo... Bullet Witch is on Steam. on the Bullet Witch board

    This doesn't really look like my kind of thing, but god bless devs for bringing games like this to steam. There are so many weird B games stuck on old consoles, and emulators only get you so far somet...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic So, When Should I Buy Your Game?. on the Off-Topic board

    I think the safe thing to do is wait at least a week for most things. Gamers are crazy, and the speed at which entire games will have been streamed on twitch means that after 7 days, there will be a p...

    I feel like this has been a long time coming considering how much their family brand has grown. Seems like the straw that broke the camels back is Griffin being DM for another entire season of TAZ. He...

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Campo Santo Joins Valve. on the Campo Santo board

    I'm guessing Valve is putting a team together for a specific project and somebody knew somebody at Campo Santo and there was mutual benefit to be had. Maybe some kind of story based VR thing that Valv...

    Jan's a goddamned hero for fighting off that bandit trying to steal his cardboard video games. I want there to be a 16 Blocks-esque film adaptation of that story.

  • Brackstone posted a message in the forum topic Which GTA Game Was the Best?. on the General Discussion board

    Voted for The Lost and Damned. The quality of writing and storytelling is miles ahead of anything else Rockstar has done save for Red Dead. GTA5 was a huge step backward in that department.
