    @nickhead: This is a spot where they should have made that more clear. The historical definition of a longsword in a historical European martial arts context is one that is wielded with both hands typ...

    Yeah, that is one point where the art design is extremely on-point. Absolutely loving all the details, like zooming in bringing up a closer map with different artwork.

  • Harpell posted a message in the forum topic Kingdom Come Deliverance is out now!. on the Kingdom Come: Deliverance board

    I'm really digging this game. I backed it at the minimum amount to receive a digital copy whenever that kickstarter was exactly, so my thoughts are likely colored by the fact that it largely feels li...

  • Harpell posted a message in the forum topic Does anyone know what this game actually is?. on the Kingdom Come: Deliverance board

    I'm interested to see if they deliver on their combat system. They brought in actual western medieval combat re-constructionists (look up Historical European Martial Arts on Youtube, it's a really in...

  • Harpell posted a message in the forum topic What sort of legal wild game meat or farm grown game would you WANT to try?. on the Off-Topic board

    I mean, I eat alligator semi-regularly, as I live in not too far from Louisiana. Gator nuggz are delicious. I recommend dipping in ketchup, marinara, or cocktail sauce. Whatever floats your boat.

    Happy to see that we didn't elect Clinton. This should be an interesting 4 years!

  • Harpell posted a message in the forum topic Importance of Game Testers underappreciated?. on the General Discussion board

    As a former software QA tester (not in games), I can attest that it is thankless and tedious work. Long hours and often unreasonable deadlines. As others said, it's not the most interesting or gloriou...

  • Harpell posted a message on the post E3 2016: Kojima's Next Game is Death Stranding.

    @larmer: I thought the Raiden and Rose chats were neat. I mean, the voice acting was pretty stilted but we are talking about a game from 15 years ago.Also, I legitimately love the weird cadence and st...

    This is by far my favorite guest column written for the site thus far.The death of Warhammer Fantasy Battle still stings me. I really hope Games Workshop goes back and restarts that universe.This was ...

  • Harpell posted a message in the forum topic Why I think XCOM2's alien design makes perfect sense from a narrative standpoint. on the XCOM 2 board

    Yeah, I think the designs fit what they are going for, with the post-conquest aliens dominating and subjugating humanity. God-like imagery and what-not. Not seeing any reason to get up in arms over sn...

    I'm a monarchist, so none of this matters to me. Elections? Phooey!

    I'm really excited for this prospect. I just bought a PS4 (like 2 days before the price cut was announced, which is just my luck) but I would definitely be willing to pay attention to what Nintendo i...

    I'm from the backwoods of the southeastern US, and when I was growing up, the closest thing in the poll to what I called him (and what my sister still calls him) would be "Daddy". But in the local acc...

    Finally, I can drag myself to my car in a daze of hung-over confusion on a Saturday afternoon and get one of those hashbrowns. The circle is complete, and we are all better for it.

  • Harpell posted a message in the forum topic How do people feel about this game now?. on the Gone Home board

    I thought it was pretty boring...the delivery of the story was rather lame to me. Then again, I'm not exactly an art-house cinema fan, either. Definitely wasn't worth my $20 bucks, personally.

    I love miniatures! I wish I had more time for it. I've been running a D20 Modern game lately that I'm heavily basing on the whole "war economy" concept from MGS4. These are a few of the merc guys I've...

    No, the Quick Looks are about the games in my opinion. That is one thing I hate about the average Youtube gaming channels. I don't need to see someone's ugly or not so ugly mug taking up half the scre...
