• Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Games that takes place near where you live?. on the General Discussion board

    The big one I can think of for the Washington, DC area is Fallout 3. There's also been a variety of games that have had a level set at the Pentagon, but it's usually just a generic military-complex lo...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Butter on Steak?. on the Off-Topic board

    @acidbrandon18: That second steak looks far more delicious than the first. Its not even just the butter, the first also doesn't look properly seared at all.

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Steam is apparently launching a purge of risque visual novels: Updated (again)!. on the Steam board

    @theht: How are you defining "explicit"? Because, for instance, Tender Loving Care, with its FMV late night cinemax-level sex scenes complete with female nipples, is up on Steam. But I wouldn't call t...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Should I finish PoE First?. on the Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire board

    I bought PoE2; it had a strong start (and seems to have fixed a lot of issues from the first game), but then I read about all the bugs (duh, it's Obsidian; I should've known). So I decided to put it a...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post GBW Playdate: State of Decay 2 05/16/2018.

    Even with this video I really can't tell if I'd like this game or not (didn't play the first one). I really dislike survival crafting games, but I really like top-down resource management games. Basic...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 528: Boy!.

    Has the general opinion of Bioshock Infinite gone down over the years? I feel like the initial impression was that it was a really interesting premise and setting with slightly stale gameplay that did...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic An idea for an MMORPG with no levels. on the General Discussion board

    The Secret World sort of had that idea; they called it horizontal progression. There were hundreds of skills, divided across 9 weapon types, and there was only extremely limited progression (technical...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Billy Mitchell kicked out of Twin Galaxies. on the General Discussion board

    My primary reaction through most of this saga was to confuse Twin Galaxies with Iron Galaxy and wonder how Dave Lang ended up responsible for the Donkey Kong high score records.

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Cliff Blezinski's new game. Early Access: 80's inspired Battle Royale game. on the Radical Heights board

    This reminds me of all the failed WoW-chasing MMOs that came out from around 2006-2009 and are almost all completely forgotten about now. What I wonder though is, how many of those games actually "fai...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Episode 149.

    @adamlcook: I think they have the same attitude that Jeff G. had towards Fallout 4. The crew had already decided the series was stale; thought Far Cry 4 was too similar to 3, and was completely disapp...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Vinny's FMV Snow Day.

    I had no idea that some of these old games were VCR-based. They look terrible, and are barely interactive, but it's kind of amazing that people were able to figure out how to make any kind of game usi...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic What's your opinion on Chess?. on the General Discussion board

    I don't like it; I find the ruleset too restrictive. I need more tactical options to my grid-based games; let there be rules like "Once every 3 turns a Queen can jump over a friendly piece" or "Any pi...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic What yet to be released RPG(s) are you looking forward to the most in 2018?. on the General Discussion board

    I don't pay as much attention to upcoming games as I used to, so I'm not familiar with around half the games in the poll. But of the ones I do know about, it's definitely Vampyr.I haven't seen any gam...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Vermintide 2 Tips and Tricks. on the Warhammer: Vermintide 2 board

    Pretty basic one, but I didn't realize it at first: If you're carrying a tome and come across a healing item, you can drop the tome and use the healing item and then pick up the tome again. No harm, n...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic favorite game. on the General Discussion board

    I think "favorite game" and "only game I can play for the rest of my life" are two different things. My favorite game is probably Mass Effect 2, but there's a handful of other games I might say on a d...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic Who will win the loot shooter crown?. on the General Discussion board

    @pyrodactyl: Warframe is one of those games that's actually secretly really popular, but almost never seems to get talked about. It's almost always top 10 on the steam stats for player population (inc...

  • Fezrock posted a message on the post Unfinished: Hunt: Showdown (03/01/18).

    @hayt: From what I heard in the QL, you don't need to do much to get rewards and you can leave the map at any time. So I guess the strat for new players is to avoid other players like the plague and g...

  • Fezrock posted a message in the forum topic How long do your general gaming sessions tend to last?. on the General Discussion board

    It really varies, anywhere from 30 minutes to 12+ hours (lazy winter weekend days). It helps that I work from home, meaning no commute; so after work I'll usually play for 1-2 hours to decompress befo...
