• gerrid posted a message on the post Episode 232.

    The Disco Elysium stuff is weird to me. The tone of that game is what you make it. I find it to be whimsical and sharply funny in its absurdity, but by the sounds of it everyone on staff finds it opp...

    I'm enjoying the writing a lot. I like how many options you get to just lie and create these silly scenarios, like every conversation is a one sided improv session.Feels like a wonderful amount of fr...

    @bisonhero: From the tone of his comments, it's A. And not only did he hate it and quit, sounds like he also spoiled something in it for Jeff B in his ranting about how much he hated it.I think the st...

    I finished it yesterday too, and I agree that the first half better than the second half. When you start and you have infinite mysteries ahead of you, but as you observe more and gain more knowledge, ...

    I started waking up earlier to get an hour of a game that I really enjoy in the mornings, which works well. The best thing about this is you can quite quickly realise if a game isn't really compellin...

    Ok so I got this last night and tried it on Steam in-home streaming. Works like a dream on that by the way, perfect candidate for that sort of set up.After about 3 minutes talking to the mirror I kne...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Outer Wilds - have you played it?. on the Outer Wilds board

    One thing I would say is this is absolutely not a game you should play if you are under any sort of time constraint. Like The Witness you have to just be able to play it in a leisurely way. I'm at wha...

    This popped up on my radar yesterday after the great reviews. It looks fantastic. I've added it to my wishlist and thinking of playing it fairly soon. One question I have is how difficult is it? Do y...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Nintendo Switch).

    Witcher 1 has my favourite story from the trilogy, so it's still my favourite of the 3. Witcher 2 felt undercooked, and the console port was pretty horrible. Although Witcher 1 wasn't top down, I don'...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Currently Playing AI: The Somnium Files. on the AI: The Somnium Files board

    I was surprised by how quick the game gets dark and weird. I'm not 100% sold on the mental lock gameplay especially when there's a time limit. But the story is very intriguing and I really like the ch...
