    I find the modern MK fatalities too be boring because they are just too self-indulgent. Once you cut to another camera, it loses the immediacy and transgressive nature of the old fatalities. I’m glad ...

    I kind of just need Assassin’s Creed to quit. I’ve only ever played half of Black Flag, but I’m sick to death of the series. I think the PREMISES are good. I’m just sick of the branding and the overtu...

    As a fan of Tech TV, the station that was wrecked to make G4, I always hated it. It was a juvenile channel for the era when gamers were treated like perverts and children.I always hated how Sessler w...

    I homestly think that the “slow drip” embargoed coverage of the next gen systems has REALLY hurt excitement over the units. Especially Microsoft. This was a bad call by their PR teams.

    YES!! FINALLY somebody at Giant Bomb has good things to say about VR. As a mostly VR-only player now, I was really getting tired of the CONSTANT crapping on the most advanced technology in the industr...

    I had to start KOTOR 3 times before it clicked for me. I found the game design, graphics and into to be clunky and off putting in a way that put me off it. However I kept hearing how amazing it was. F...

    I think that a lot of the “competition” between Sony, MS and Nintendo is invented, at this point, by industry nerds who want “to see a good fight”. What’s on offer from the three companies is so diff...
