    @devise22: Black Mirror, The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine -- stuff along those lines -- are definitely a sub-genre of sci-fi. Social sci-fi, where certain real-world fads, behaviours, or social exper...

    @tommytours: The Getaway back on PS2 had a pretty accurate open-world London in it, but it's been forgotten because it's such a dull game IMO.Yeah, Resistance is probably one of the coolest renditions...

    Only RPGs and nostalgia champions.

    Star Wars is one of the most recognized and beloved properties, so I highly doubt it's anything to do with audiences thinking the idea of ships and space stuff is silly or not entertaining. The Star T...

    @meteora3255: Those earlier 360 games compared to later ones look almost like a generational leap in terms of effects and overall fidelity. GTA4 compared to 5 is even more unbelievable.I only picked t...

    @nutter: Oh man, definitely; I like those ideas you put forward a lot. In my mind it looks like Warhawk/Starhawk meets Lair meets Metal Gear Rising. The Titanfall 2 team could do something fantastic w...

    Minus the zombies, those ideas could work extremely well together. I would love to play a multiplayer game with ninjas on dragons, personally. If Platinum came out with an idea like that, no one would...

    Some great answers here. Luigi's Mansion and Kat's little nest, definitely good shouts.I loved a bunch in Fable 2, but Fairfax Castle stuck with me; what's that beautiful little house in FF7, with the...

    It's awful; who knows, that one true gem of a game that put them fully on the map as a studio could've been in the pipeline.I expected this news after I saw Radical Heights, I must admit, just because...

  • BrunoTheThird posted a message on the post Breakfast 'N' Ben - Tiny Toons Adventure Any Percent Playthrough.

    Absolutely one of the greatest SNES games ever. I'd say this and Mickey's Wild Adventure nailed their respective art styles unbelievably well, and were fun to boot.

    Still on my any% Symphony of the Night speedrun quest (I just wanna crack the top 40). My PB so far is 24:57, which is passable (57th on the leaderboard when it's validated) but I can get close to the...

    Ikaruga. I wish I had the dexterity of a Chinese plastic surgeon, but I don't; I get to chapter 3 (I think) and it goes to hell, every single time. The R-Type games make me scream, too.Slightly differ...

    If the blood isn't red, parents are often cool with it, weirdly. Halo never had blood blood, but alien blood, right?

  • BrunoTheThird posted a message on the post Quick Look: The Swords of Ditto.

    I mean, it looks really cool, and plays well. I haven't seen anything overwhelmingly shit or off-putting about it, it's just a flawed, beautiful game, and I want to support it so the next beautiful ga...

    It's great for hidden gems. I've found hundreds and hundreds of lesser-known classics just browsing through every movie with a 6.0 plus rating, but that's all aggregated scores are good for: giving me...
