    This is exactly me alone in my apartment during month 9 of social distancing except substitute "bunger" with whatever word happens to be stuck in my head.

    @nuttism: I’m with you. I’m in it for the discussion that sort of forces a deep dive analysis into the games, and the topics that seem weird to folks, actually spotlight games that normally might not ...

    @bigsocrates: I’m with you. As a person who wants to analyze my favorite media, being prompted with the threat of “you’ll lose all progress” when I try to start a new game, really bums me the hell out...

    My heart goes out to the folks running into the really bad issues. I have the hot take that hard saves should be part of the TRC/XR/Guidelines for releasing on any console. I'm so fucking sick of cros...

    @ntm: Thanks for sharing! I definitely had a different experience with Control, but we can at least agree that Alan Wake is great!

    @ntm: I know it’s not the point of the thread, so feel free to spoiler tag any response, but I’m curious what you didn’t like about Control. I know some folks just don’t click with Remedy’s style, but...

  • hatking posted a message in the forum topic Xbox One Edition - worth a look?. on the Control board

    It has a few hiccups on One X but is totally playable. Most noticeable issue is the hitching when pausing or pulling up the map. Not outstanding, but it didn’t ultimately hurt my experience. I can’t s...

    Everything I've heard points to the combat being pretty accessible at the start, but near the end it escalates in a pretty shitty way. Where you aren't really figuring out combat puzzles, but rather b...

  • hatking posted a message in the forum topic Will there ever be a great Superman game?. on the General Discussion board

    @bigsocrates: I might argue a game that unleashes player into a city to make an exploding sandbox out of it, in a way you couldn't and wouldn't do in your everyday life, is more than just a decent ada...

  • hatking posted a message in the forum topic Will there ever be a great Superman game?. on the General Discussion board

    It is difficult because the way video game players read stories, and the way in turn that video game makers tell stories, directly conflicts with what is fascinating about Superman as a character. Spe...

    Even if CDPR were planning this, it is far, far from certain, and this guy wouldn't know about it. Games are difficult and unpredictable work, and you can look at the last few weeks of CDPR's history ...

    I feel like my list is weird this year. In a pretty good way. Maybe all this time alone has forced me to look for new experiences and branch out from the kind of stuff I know I like.Last of Us 2 lande...

  • hatking posted a message on the post Teardown (11/10/2020).

    @humanity: Right, but I'm saying this is the easiest possible workaround to the most obvious solution. Like if in a Hitman game they were like "you have to kill this guy, but, uh, he's invincible to t...

    This looks so cool.

    I don’t see this as “bog standard” turn based combat. I don’t play many turn based games, but I don’t recall a one, outside of tactics games, that incorporates a characters situational positioning int...
