    People seem to be saying it starts slow, and is tutorilized/linear for the first 10 hours. That has put me off more than anything. My patience for games to ramp up to "the good part" is at an all time...

    Tony Hawk was the game that brought me the most joy in 2020. Hades would be my #2. I'm frothing at the mouth to play Demon Souls and Yakuza. No luck getting next gen consoles though.

    Rowling doesnt strike me as a hateful person. Misinformed, yes. But she doesnt seem completelty reprehensible based on her tweets alone. At its core, wasnt the messaging that the expierences of a pers...

    My wife doesn't play games so we haven't clicked on many despite trying a lot of different options. We did enjoy and finish Streets of Rage 4. She likes to watch Fall Guys and would tune in to most of...

    @redcream: Ill preface this by saying, I'm trying my best not to be annoyed with or angry at people who dont matter - that is angry at anybody like an entertainer or public figure even if they are des...

    Nice of Rogan to feel charitable enough to give someone as unfunny as Ron some exposure.

  • frustratedlnc posted a message in the forum topic What was the first game you saw that made you go "This is the future of games right here". on the General Discussion board

    Ill echo some of the games already mentioned. The strongest first impressions for me were Mortal Kombat, Mario 64, Doom 3, and most of the Dreamcast library (Sonic, Soul Caliber, Code Veronica). To a ...

    When you can do anything with Halo and you choose ....the same setting, the same enemies, the same art direction, the same gameplay... it all starts to remind of Gearbox and the safe, generic directio...

    That new Slipknot album wasn't bad. I can still listen to SOAD and Chevelle as well.

  • frustratedlnc posted a message in the forum topic An actor compares TLOU2 to Schindler's List. Twitter does NOT like it.. on the The Last of Us Part II board

    There was nothing wrong with the original tweet. The jump to outrage was cartoonish. A game can be as affecting as a movie with a bleak, oppressive topic like the holocaust. Thats the idea. I get it i...

    @kcin: No, you're right. Every single NYPD officer is a nazi that should be exterminated. Thank you for your nuanced take on the situation.

  • frustratedlnc posted a message in the forum topic A Farewell to Giant Bomb. on the General Discussion board

    I agree with you on most of your points. Things are not black and white. We live with ambiguity and being able to talk about it without being threatened, called names, or otherwise shut down is conduc...

    Textures don't bother me. I am not liking the linearity or the pacing, though.

    I wasn't hurrying through the game by any means and finished my first playthrough in 4.5 hours. Kind of disappointed.

  • frustratedlnc posted a message on the post Resident Evil 3 (2020).

    How are Brad / Vinny doing this cross coast quicklook? Is it something like OBS and screen sharing with Zoom? Or is it Discord? Anybody know?
