• Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Initial impressions seem pretty positive overall. on the WWE 2K19 board

    That's great news. I've always been a big fan of the Smackdown games back on the ps1/ps2 and to see them become garbage over the years was a bummer. Good to know they're at least trying now.

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Is Nier (PS3/360) worth playing?. on the Nier board

    There are a lot of hints about a Nier remaster in the works. I'm waiting for that rather than digging my Xbox out of the garage. I've played like 10 hours of Nier years ago and enjoyed it but never fi...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic NVIDIA RTX Reviews are hitting. on the General Discussion board

    Hey man that's good news for me because I upgraded to a1080 ti a couple months before these things were announced and I really don't wanna fucking hate myself right now.

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic There is an Assassin's Creed 3 remaster on its way.. on the Assassin's Creed III board

    Whether or not they fix the bug where the colour of your robes doesn't properly show up in cutscenes will decide the quality of a remaster.

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Things that irrationally and instantly drive you up the wall in gaming?. on the General Discussion board

    I find story-driven games where the characters constantly comment on everything they do annoying. For example, in The Last of Us I hated that every line during gameplay was breathy and consisted of m...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Just a heads up. Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Double Agent (360 version) are now backward compatible.. on the Splinter Cell board

    Double Agent for the 360 is still supremely underrated. Anybody who disliked Double Agent back in the day and was later bummed out about Conviction and Blacklist being a little too action-oriented or...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Saying goodbye to Giant Bomb. on the General Discussion board

    Giant Bomb is the only games site worth visiting at this point. They got their faults, but they're still miles ahead of the pack. But hey, if the negatives outweigh the positives for you then I don't ...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic What's your favorite special/limited edition console?. on the General Discussion board

    Any one whose accouterments are big and stupid enough that it actually screws up the console's point of gravity and the thing falls over all the time. I feel like there were a couple special edition ...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Teen Titans live action show looks awful. on the Off-Topic board

    It truly does. It managed to take every character and turn them into a hideous, cynical piece of crap. Every character is embarrassing, but Robin's line was definitely the most humiliating. These sup...

    @moregrammarplz: Couldn't have said it better.

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic What great band and musical artists have you discovered from a game's licensed soundtrack?. on the General Discussion board

    The soundtrack to GTA: Lost & Damned introduced me to Bathory, which in turn got me into black metal.

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic What would you want from a new Max Payne game?. on the General Discussion board

    In terms of gameplay I can't think of anything I'd want. Max Payne has had stellar gunplay since day 1, so the only thing I can think of is to bring back the Noir story-telling and graphic novel-esque...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Do you think we will achieve world peace in this kind of time era?. on the Off-Topic board

    Hell no. I think we'll be extinct before any such revelation occurs. The planet is already irreversibly ruined, and is getting wrecked worse and worse literally every second. Seafood will be extinct ...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    Just watched Death Wish on VOD. I was worried going in because Eli Roth is responsible for it, Bruce Willis hasn't been in good shit since forever, and the reviews were pretty negative. Came out plea...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Unimpressed from E3. on the Anthem board

    I think it looks pretty bland and boring too. There's nothing about that game that feels or looks like a BioWare title. Its only unique claim is that it supposedly combines the storytelling of actual...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Has therapy worked for any of you that have been in it?. on the Off-Topic board

    It absolutely helps. I've had depression since I was a kid and going to therapy and seeing psychologists has definitely given me a different outlook on life. You learn to become super aware of your ow...

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Delayed again into 2019. on the Crackdown 3 board

    I swear, if they don't cancel it and they just release a regular-ass Crackdown game with zero innovation, I'm gonna be more disappointed than I would have been if they just cancelled it.

  • Cure_Optimism posted a message in the forum topic Steam Announces More Hands Off Approach To Content. on the Steam board

    If this means they're going to continue to allow broken and terrible games/asset flips on their platform, that's disappointing and really makes Steam a worse off place. I'm sick of seeing a bunch of ...
