    Congrats dude. We're right in the thick of it ourselves, our first was born April 25th. Just know at the beginning you won't have a lot of time for yourself, that's just the reality of it, especially ...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Thank You, Giant Bomb Team (Tuesday Pause). on the Bombcast board

    I'm glad they took a stand and voiced their opinions. I know none of them would consider themselves role models or anything, but as someone that's followed Jeff and co since the HotSpot days from when...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic What are THE phone games?. on the General Discussion board

    I always recommend the Rusty Lake and Cube Escape games. Pretty simple point-and-click escape room type games with an overarching story with weird Lynchian vibes. Most are free but there's a few lon...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Pizza Pizza is good Pizza. on the Bombcast board

    Pizza Pizza is terrible. I only ate it all the time during grad school because it was the closest thing next to my house and open late, and wasn't super expensive. It was also Ottawa which was a gar...

    Parasite, 5/5. I look forward to the inevitable much shittier North American re-make.

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Farewell and best wishes to Dan!. on the General Discussion board

    I'm someone that hates change, but the older I've gotten the more I've come to accept it as an inevitability. As I've been swept up with life I haven't had as much time to watch all of the site's vid...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    Rise of Skywalker was disappointing as hell. I'm in the camp that liked TLJ, and this movie just undid everything to give the MOST predictable ending to the trilogy. I was guessing lines and scenes ...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic GOTY Special: Giant Bomb's Worst Christmas Song. on the General Discussion board

    Anytime someone mentions awful Christmas songs I think of Patton Oswalt's bit on Christmas Shoes.

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Not so Outer this World experience.. on the The Outer Worlds board

    I also burned out on it pretty quick, but I suspect I may not really like the Bethesda/Obsidian style of RPG that much. The only one I felt captivated by was Skyrim, which I dumped well over 100 hour...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic What do you consider to be the best season of The Simpsons?. on the Off-Topic board

    Oh lordy, this is a tough one since there's just so much Simpsons stuck in my head but picking apart episodes is almost impossible. I will say much like Star Trek TNG, start with the second season. I ...

    Nope

    Gonna be a real "quality" over quantity fight this year.

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic A rant about living under Chinese parents and the mental scars it's left. on the Off-Topic board

    Damn, I fully sympathize with your situation since I come from pretty much the same background, Chinese parents who immigrated in the 80s and were super authoritarian when I was growing up (especially...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Marvel just announced a whole bunch of stuff including a goddamn BLADE reboot. on the Off-Topic board

    I think out of the new slate of movies I'm most interesting in Dr. Strange 2. This may be the first "horror" movie I can actually take my wife to. I'm also interested to see what they do with Scarl...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Games you quickly gave up on, and why. on the General Discussion board

    I just booted up Hellblade a few nights ago, and the opening sequence in the boat with the whispering was triggering my misophonia so badly I had to quit out immediately.

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to Release June 18 for PC, PS4, XBO & June 25 for Switch. on the Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night board

    @facelessvixen said:@boozak said:I didnt know this was a £35 game, that changes my opinion somewhat. I feel there have been a lot of great metroidvanias this year alone for less than half that price ...

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Do you think Google Stadia will be the next Google Glass?. on the Google Stadia board

    I built a pretty beefy PC this year and still pre-ordered. I think their business model makes a lot more sense now we know the details. $10 a month isn't that much if you get access to a catalog of ...

    @wmoyer83: You forgot cheeseburgers and tacos.

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Avengers Endgame Discussion (Full Spoilers). on the Off-Topic board

    I think Infinity War was the tighter and better movie, but I still loved Endgame for all the fan service and as a finale to a 10 year arc of movies.

  • ichthy posted a message in the forum topic Rough estimate of difficultly compared to other From games?. on the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice board

    @ntm: Honestly, it sounds like you're have way less trouble than I was on most of the bosses. I didn't count how many times I died to Genichiro, but it took me a solid 3 hours or so. Also for the El...
