  • jacksmedulla posted a message in the forum topic Anyone else disappointed in the new shows?. on the General Discussion board

    You are not. This is a sentiment that has been expressed often since the new direction started. It’s died down here though, as I think those of us that don’t enjoy the content have stopped coming here...

  • jacksmedulla posted a message in the forum topic Here's 20 minutes of footage of Elden Ring. on the Elden Ring board

    It seems fairly obvious they were inspired by Breath of the Wild, which, combined with the world design and combat mechanics of the Souls series, is very promising. I'll be curious to see how well Fro...

    @ghost_cat: I mean, the problem for me is that this looks like an indie game. It just seems nuts to be charging 60 dollars for it. Visually it also just looks really bland to me.

    Honestly, I've been getting the urge to play Shadows of the Damned again, but there was never a pc release. Plus, even if I had an xbox console for backwards compatibility, it got delisted from the MS...

    I had never heard of the term 'eyecatch' before, and I misread the title as "Your most favorite eyepatch in anime of all time?". I was very confused as to why I wasn't seeing any eyepatches in the li...

    @rorie: I'm pretty sure there is a sniper rifle in there somewhere? I've seen one a few times in the different media released for the game. Maybe it just isn't available until later.

  • jacksmedulla posted a message in the forum topic Deathloop - Reviews & Discussion. on the Deathloop board

    I don't know. After watching the reviews of ACG, Gmanlives, and Easy Allies, I'm still feeling really tepid on Deathloop. Something about it just seems so samey. I enjoy Arkane games as much as the n...

  • jacksmedulla posted a message in the forum topic Another set of new shows - The Very Online Show, Albummer, and Armed and Rangerous. on the General Discussion board

    For a site so fond of absolutely dunking on creative endeavors and products, it’s hilarious to me how precious some community members are about fairly mild criticism of how the site is changing.

  • jacksmedulla posted a message in the forum topic The Ascent - Game Discussion. on the The Ascent board

    @lucifunk: DX12 was known to be borked on release, and I’m not sure if they’ve patched it yet. So unless someone is desperate for some Raytracing, DX11 is definitely the way to go.
