  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic Six months since GB invoked The Ritual. How do you feel?. on the General Discussion board

    To be honest, my interest in the content has been slipping over the past month or so. I think there's a lot of "chaos energy" in the current cast and it gets to be a bit much for me when a lot of the...

    Logging the Backlog: It's Time to Play 500 Games

    I, as I'm sure a lot of people have, have built up quite a backlog of games over the last decade or so. New games are releasing all the time, going on sale all the time, being given away all the time,...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic New feature idea: Dan plays Kojima's earlier games. on the General Discussion board

    I feel like if there was any chance that Dan would like these games, he would've played them by now. I also don't think the Giant Bomb staff are the type of people to make visual novel playthroughs e...

    Persona 3 and 4Yakuza 0Life is StrangeI feel like there was something more recent, but I can't remember what it was.EDIT: Now that I think about it, all of these games, aside from Persona 3, have been...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic Marvel Snap Strategy Talk. on the Marvel Snap board

    I started an X-men themed deck, with Storm's and Professor X's abilities being to close off lanes early. If you can combo Storm and Jessica Jones back-to-back on an empty lane, that's a pretty good c...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic Rollin' with your AI buddies in single player games. on the General Discussion board

    In terms of whole games being an entire escort mission, I really like Ico and The Last Guardian. I'm the weirdo that thinks Shadow of the Colossus is the least interesting of the Team Ico games.

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic PSVR2 Release date and price announced. on the PlayStation VR2 board

    I'm pretty sure that costs more than what I paid for both the VR headsets I already own that are sitting on my shelf doing absolutely nothing. Gonna be a "no" for me.

    The latest deck I built is based around whatever that dinosaur is that boosts its power by the number of cards in your hand. There are multiple cards that just steal your opponent's cards that I use ...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    My memory is horrid. I apparently played Timespinner at some point and liked it enough to give it a 4 out of 5, but I could not tell you a single thing about that game. Seems like I think it's a pret...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    @efesell: I'm sure the main cast in 5 were probably better about that stuff then it's side cast, but then that's where I get into some of the characters being too repetitive to previous games. SPOILE...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    @efesell: My issues are more egregious in what happens in the social links. In 4, fighting the inner turmoil demon was only the start of dealing with someone's personal issues. Then, how they delt wit...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    @sethmode: For all the faults I place on its writing, Persona 5 probably has the best visual art, music, gameplay, and dungeon design in the series. I totally understand why people would love the game...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    @topcyclist: I don't remember anyone being upset or offended by the subject matters of Persona 5. I can only really speak for myself, but I dislike Persona 5 because I thought its writing was boring a...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    My problem with Neir Automata is that I played Nier, which just did a lot of the same stuff.If were talking Nintendo, I have a lot of terrible takes here. Keep in mind, I was a Genesis kid. My first N...

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    @efesell: I include 1 & the 2s. I've played them all. I don't remember much of 1, but the 2s let you kill Hitler and that's way better than anything that happens in 5.

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic What's your spiciest take about a AAA or indie game series?. on the General Discussion board

    I don't really know where people land on this anymore. If I were to say Persona 5 is the worst Persona game, is that a spicy take?

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic Jeff Gerstmann was fired from Giant Bomb !!! WTF. on the General Discussion board

    Has anyone checked to see if anyone in RV management use to work on Kane & Lynch?

  • brian_ posted a message in the forum topic Podcast overload. on the General Discussion board

    I used to try and watch every piece of Giant Bomb content, back when it was the only content I consumed regularly and that was much more manageable. With everyone spread out now between Jeff's thing a...
