• Deathpooky posted a message on the post Inside Xbox Event (05/07/20).

    Feels mainly just like an expectation mismatch. Hyping this up as first look at XBX caliber games and AC gameplay reveal got everyone in the gaming world to pay attention, but its very different than ...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Mass Effect 3 - Part 08.

    Glad this is giving Vinny a second glance at this game. The primary mission beats in this game are the best in the series. Filled with great character moments, dialogue, and galaxy-spanning politic...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post The Bloodborne Identity with Jan: Part 6.

    Blood-starved beast remains my hardest boss in the game. Both in my initial plays and my several re-plays of the game, I always get stuck here and either quit or come close to quitting. Combination...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Final Fantasy VII Remake.

    Between seeing the game at friends' houses back in the day and watching random streams or speedruns of this, I've probably seen all of FF7, but somehow never actually played through the whole thing my...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

    I was really excited to get this for me and my kids, but the one-console one-island play looks like an absolute shitshow.

  • Deathpooky posted a message in the forum topic DOOM Eternal Impressions Thread. on the Doom Eternal board

    I am really undecided on this. I'm about 4 missions in playing on ultraviolent, so far sticking to difficulty despite it kicking my ass in basically every encounter until I learn the arena and figur...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Bubble Bobble (02/28/2020).

    I loved this game as a kid, but whiskey definitely seems like the way to go playing it in modern times. I feel like hearing more than 5 minutes of the music loop starts to melt your brain.

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Ori and the Will of the Wisps (02/26/20).

    Can't wait to play this, especially if they've expanded on ways along the lines of Hollow Knight. Ori was a tight, fun experience with great movement, and had some really great sequences that took a...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post 100 Baby Challenge - Part 1 [Live!].

    Come for Abby attempting to aggressively woohoo her way through an entire city, stay for classic new parent comments like "didn't I just feed this baby," "I need to change the diaper again?!?," and "w...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Temtem.

    I'm interested in someone else trying to really do Pokemon given how stagnant the series has been, but this definitely looks like it could use some work. Will be fun to see after it develops more.

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Here's What Won in 2019 - Giant Bomb's Game of the Year.

    I think the strengths of Outer Wilds likely push it over the top for me as well, but Jeff missing the main mechanic of the game kind of derailed any discussion of the real potential negatives in the g...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post GIANT BOMB WINTER GAMES 2019.

    The swelling music and ending excitement really made this. Also what felt like seven hours of slapping.

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2019: Day Two Deliberations.

    Interesting to hear that Fire Emblem will pretty much be left out after it took over mid year discourse for a bit, but I’m in the same place to Ben and Dan. Made it to the time skip but the complete ...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2019: Day One Deliberations.

    Surprised they kept this format. I do enjoy the year-end review to some extent as a refresher making sure every game gets in there, but it still does not seem worth it to lose several days worth of a...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Bloodstained: Part 13.

    Watching the arc of Vinny in this game was so much fun. Starting out as a rather difficult SOTN clone, then watching as the game gets ridiculous, culminating as you use the systems to absolutely des...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Episode 236.

    Glad to hear Abby checking out Slay the Spire. Sounds like it'll get lost come game of the year time, but it is a game that is worth putting time into if you like strategy / run-based / card-based g...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Episode 234.

    So glad to hear everyone raving about Outer Wilds after getting back into it. Was worried it was going to be Vinny all by his lonesome praising that game come GOTY time with everyone saying they wish...

  • Deathpooky posted a message on the post Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

    Really excited to play this from all I've seen, but seems like a great game to ask for as a holiday gift so they get a month and a half extra to start fixing it up with a patch or two.
