  • EthanML posted a message on the post Quick Look: Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015: Do You Still Shower With Your Dad?.

    So somebody made a 2 day game jam with subject matter guaranteed to get coverage...smart, I guess. Seems basic even for $1 though.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic Must have original Xbox games? (Besides the obvious ones). on the Xbox board

    If you like racing at all, Project Gotham Racing 2 is still one of the most well made and generally fun driving games ever as I remember it.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic Are Skelligers Scottish or Irish?. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    From what little I've heard (others here in NI have been sending the video around) they're 100% Northern Irish, which is a very distinct accent from regular Irish or Scottish. (Well, there are actuall...

    I'm from the UK and you definitely need to do some research and reconsider this thread.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic Banjo-Kazooie Spiritual Successor Hits Kickstarter Goal in Less Than 40 Minutes. on the Yooka-Laylee board

    It's sort of crazy just how identical an experience to Banjo Kazooie / Tooie they're going for, especially when you look at the stretch goals - and listen to that music, I had to check it wasn't actu...

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon 3: Part 12.

    I found the MGS4 controls and general action awful and convoluted when I played it ~5 years ago. The fact that they're 'better' than the controls in previous MGS games is hardly a compelling argument....

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Quick Look: DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition.

    It makes me so god damn mad at people that this incredible game will never get a sequel.

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon 3: Part 01.

    This whole 'Meme Gene Scene' thing is possibly the dumbest thing I've ever heard...every time it gets brought up I cringe so hard.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic How Kotaku and Gawker Media Lost a Reader. on the Off-Topic board

    Yeah, the most confusing part of this post for me was that you seem to think you'd have to convince people here that Gawker is generally garbage.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic No way to view old podcasts on mobile.. on the Bug Reporting board

    Wait, why aren't you just using an actual podcast app..? Surely it's a far better experience.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic Life after college?. on the Off-Topic board

    Not to be harsh but, any particular reason you chose to invest in a degree in a subject you neither had passion for nor has excellent job prospects? =/For what it's worth, I don't think it's at all ra...

    @bob1950: He's a big boy son, let him go.

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic A Little Something About Mr Dan "Long-Legged" Ryckert... on the Bomb Squad board

    You're a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.P.S. If you loved Dan so much I imagine you'd respect his decision to come here and the thought that must have gone into that decision having bee...

  • EthanML posted a message in the forum topic FYI: Patrick is now a Senior Reporter at Kotaku. on the General Discussion board

    Ditto to the guy who said at least it ain't Polygon...but man do I dislike a lot of what Kotaku does as well. Good luck to Patrick though, he's a cool guy and it must be a crazy tough decision to leav...

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon 2 - Part 13.

    That ending is indefensibly terrible and up it's own ass as far as I'm concerned, as good as the initial revelation around the colonel's codec conversations is. I can't get behind Dan's defence of th...

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Dragon Age: Inquisition Gets a Suitably Epic Launch Trailer.

    I don't get it, I think the song is awesome. And given that without music the trailer would be nothing but random shots of pretty scenery, and everyone seems to be praising the trailer minus that mus...

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Dragon Age: Inquisition Gets a Suitably Epic Launch Trailer.

    Despite generally hating these weird dark/creepy covers of classic cheery songs, I think this one worked well and is largely responsible for the trailer's epic feel.

  • EthanML posted a message on the post The StarCraft II Trilogy Nears Its Conclusion.

    Most predictable comments section ever. God you guys are downers, just enjoy the spectacle and get the added bonus of playing the best RTS around, the story doesn't need to be War and Peace.

  • EthanML posted a message on the post Quick Look: Sunset Overdrive.

    Do you ever get much speed / momentum when grinding etc? This video makes it look disappointingly slow and unsatisfying, particularly when attacking enemies while grinding and barely moving.
