    Yeah, I continue to pay premium because I want the site to continue to exist but tbh hardly any of the premium material is interesting to me.Too many weird shows, not enough quicklooks.Yes, games cont...

  • CptBedlam posted a message on the post GrubbSnax 43: Skate 4, AEW Chants, and the Legacy of Uncharted.

    I predict there will be a bit of popular backlash to ER's critical reception which might prevent the next FS game from reaching ER sales figures.I finished it today after 180 hours, did near everythin...

  • CptBedlam posted a message in the forum topic Why IS Elden Ring so popular?. on the Elden Ring board

    I've been playing Souls games since DeS / DS1 and increasingly over the years I've been trying to actively stay away as far as possible from all the weird exploding online fandom. From "Vaati" to "let...

    @brg: Oh yes, I mixed up the names but it sounds like the ending / boss fight I remember.

  • CptBedlam posted a message in the forum topic Were you impressed by early 3D graphics? Weirdly enough, I wasn't.. on the General Discussion board

    Depends. On PC I found some early 3D games breathtaking at the time. Like Descent, for example, and yes, also Quake (or many other shooters).On consoles I found it rough. Too jittery with all the text...

  • CptBedlam posted a message on the post Far Cry 6.

    Not gonna lie... this looks suprisingly mediocre, even compared to other Ubi-open-world games.@alpha_bit: Hell, even FC2 was still pretty unique and a very engrossing experience. After that game thoug...

  • CptBedlam posted a message in the forum topic What's been happening with the GB folks lately?. on the General Discussion board

    At this point, who cares where people are working from? The office age as we knew it is over for certain employment sectors.All I care about is that I see more QLs (with more than one person in it) ag...

  • CptBedlam posted a message on the post Phalanx For the Lovely Knight - Borne to Run #02.

    Kentucky Fried Charrer came to my mind.Also, it drove me crazy how Danny ignored the archers instead of killing them off. At least he got punished for it in the end! >:D

  • CptBedlam posted a message in the forum topic The "Can't remember the name of this game" Thread v3.0. on the General Discussion board

    I'm looking for an apparently rather unknown fantasy action-adventure game on PC.- I believe it came out in the late 90s (or mid-90s or maybe even around 2000)- third-person, very early 3D graphics- i...

  • CptBedlam posted a message in the forum topic Have you ever been turned off by a game for its art/look?. on the General Discussion board

    One of the very few games that are generally acclaimed but completely lost me because of their look is Salt & Sanctuary.I'm a huge Souls fan, love drab and muted color palettes and I also love ind...

    I wondered if anyone ever played renegade/"evil" in these games. My question has been answered.

  • CptBedlam posted a message in the forum topic Does anyone satisfy their entire "gaming diet" on mobile nowadays?. on the General Discussion board

    Nah, I still absolutely loathe mobile/touchscreen-gaming. It's so uncomfotable, controls are usually *ss, tiny screen etc.The only game I ever actually played on my phone for a while during flights, f...
