    it's times like this where I miss Austin. he would so often ask questions to probe what people mean when they complain or evangelise about a game, to draw out exactly what it is that lead to strong de...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Need some suggestions for a new Switch game or 2. on the Nintendo Switch board

    The Messenger was good fun, and has a banger of a soundtrack. Skirts the line between being challenging but still fun, and the writing is unexpectedly good.Into the Breach works really well in portab...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Looking for a certain RPG style. on the General Discussion board

    I know you said you want isometric but look into Risen. There's a lot of rough edges for sure and it's an action RPG rather than turn based, but you can do whatever the hell you want, plus it has the...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic White theme needs to come back. on the General Discussion board

    Having the same issue. There's a reason that most of the web is black on white, it's a basic accessibility issue. Dark themes for mobile are fine but this is going to exclude users.

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic What’s your favorite game soundtrack from this year?. on the General Discussion board

    The Messenger for me is a standout. Without that soundtrack I wouldn't have completed the game I think, it really just kept me playing.Octopath had good battle music but then they change it for somet...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Is the bounty system broken, or is it just me?. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    It doesn't seem to have much discernable logic to it but I figured you're just supposed to have bounties and be wanted in the places you've been.the story missions give you big bounties so the game is...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic How can RDR 2 be this bad with the tutorials?. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    This has definitely happened to me, and one thing I missed was maybe during all the hunting, what am I supposed to do with animal carcasses? I can skin them and that's one thing I understand, but I ca...

    I don't think Jeff will like it but I also feel like Vinny will bounce off it even harder.

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Some of the worst controls in an AAA game. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    The controls are definitely awkward, and the way they change the function of buttons is really horrible. I actually wonder if they kept it in because it will cause people to punch horses and knife str...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post XCOM Enemy Within - Part 39.

    This series could not have ended more perfectly. What makes it even better is that it was on an absolute knife edge because Abby was trying to just rush to the finish, and add that to Dan's reckless ...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post XCOM: Enemy Within - Part 38.

    It make me laugh to watch them use that Archangel jetpack like it was just a sort of improved jump. Hopping about to the top of stuff you can just climb. very good. Things I would love to see now:1. S...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic I've never played an MMO. Is FFXIV a good place to start?. on the Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn board

    One thing that makes it easy for a first MMO is you can't really mess up your character - there's no builds or skill choices or stat allocations that will ruin you. You can't choose the wrong class th...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post XCOM: Enemy Within - Part 34.

    I don't really understand why you would do this one, short, generic mission only? It would have been a great warm up mission for the NPC rescue mission, and a chance for Abby to use the new power she ...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post XCOM: Enemy Within - Part 33.

    It was nonsense for them to research those plasma cannons when they had the fusion lance already, so I suppose it only makes sense to then put the plasma cannons on ships that already had a fusion la...

    This looks fantastic, will get it when it's out on console for sure

  • gerrid posted a message on the post XCOM: Enemy Within - Part 31.

    Whoever told Abby to never dash in her first episode has done a terrible thing. We're 31 parts in and it still gives her pause every single turn. Such cruelty

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic What's the Point of Frame Rate Mode?. on the God of War board

    I started on resolution mode, but in the first area switched to the framerate mode. Just turning about in the woods made me feel a little weird - something about it just felt off, either latency or th...

  • gerrid posted a message in the forum topic Is anyone else struggling to get into Far Cry 5?. on the Far Cry 5 board

    It is much more fun in co-op, but it definitely lacks variety. That might be part of why you are struggling - the game only really rewards a chaos-type approach, since the stealth is horrible, and th...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post God of God of War.

    @steveurkel: The go-to method of discussing any big game on the Bombcast is to say it's good, and then immediately start complaining about details, while occasionally coming back to say "still a great...

  • gerrid posted a message on the post XCOM: Enemy Within - Part 28.

    Is there anything they can do to stop Abomination being the first selected soldier? Vinny basically starts every single turn reminding whoever is playing that they should look at other people's moves...
