    I was literally thinking about replaying HL2 just the other day since next month will mostly be devoid of releases. Alyx might be the driving factor into me finally getting a VR headset.

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

    Big. I haven't seen it in over 20 years and it's no damn wonder why it's so beloved. Tom Hanks just proves time and time again how diverse he can be as an actor and here it's no exception. Flat out 5...

    I can see how people would get nervous but it never seemed like too much of an issue. If you can listen to his footsteps and just walk and not fire your gun like a maniac it doesn't disturb him.

  • fauxical posted a message in the forum topic The next Xbox is called Xbox Series X.. on the General Discussion board

    Being fully honest, I think Phil Spencer and the whole Xbox team should have used it to show off what it's capable of and upcoming games. It reminds me of the 360 launch when all the games were just ...

  • fauxical posted a message in the forum topic Initial Impressions?. on the Xbox Series X board

    No joke the idea of being able to play original Xbox and 360 games with ease is a selling point for me. There are tons of Xbox games that I want to revisit but they never got backwards compatibility ...

  • fauxical posted a message in the forum topic Out Next Month, Any Excitement from Y'all?. on the Shenmue III board

    I only played the original on Dreamcast back in the day and while I have some nostalgic feelings for it I never really was a major fan. It was just a novel and exotic game from a design point of view...

    I bought the Old Games shirt from the GB store a few weeks ago and finally wore it and a friend was asking at lunch what it was and I basically just boiled down to him what Giant Bomb does.

  • fauxical posted a message in the forum topic How is it that 80s/90s action stars are still super memorable?. on the Off-Topic board

    I seriously had no idea they were making a new Rambo movie until a trailer appeared before a movie a few months ago. I am glad Stallone is still doing fine and I absolutely thought he was incredible ...

  • fauxical posted a message in the forum topic What is your Favorite Anime and Manga?. on the Off-Topic board

    Either Azumanga Daioh or Dirty Pair. Cowboy Bebop is obviously the real choice but it's an obvious one for many and I wanted to give two of my other favorites a spot.

  • fauxical posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on Gears Going More Open?. on the Gears 5 board

    I recently played and finished Gears 4 less than a month ago on Game Pass and while I did enjoy it I felt the gameplay was still too familiar from the very original we played in 2006. I could see whe...

    I haven't had much of a chance to play too many games this year due to being busy but so far I think my favorite is DMC5 and maybe followed by Super Mario Maker 2. If we are talking about games that ...

    I enjoyed it at the time and my rig at the time in Summer 2004 was able to run it mostly on high settings but my card at the time (Radeon something) at the time had issues and it would crash the game ...

    I think RE4 really set in motion the directon of gameplay the series (and for a lot of games) is and still heading in. If they do a "retro" throwback entry in the series with the awful camera angles ...
