    Link's Awakening, man.... Link's M'Fing Awakening....I thought the Direct was pretty interesting overall, but that last thing just hit all the right nostalgia notes. Link's Awakening is one of those g...

  • JadeGL posted a message in the forum topic Games with the most unique/memorable story-telling? [Please, try to avoid spoilers]. on the General Discussion board

    I really enjoyed the way the story unfolded in Her Story. It was so good at making you feel like a genius when you would find a word that unlocked a bunch of new videos. The story was out of order an...

  • JadeGL posted a message in the forum topic Best way to enjoy coffee???. on the Off-Topic board

    I usually have mine either flavored with cream and sugar or plain brew with cream and sugar. It looks like a few shades darker than eggshell paint when I am done with it. I also love iced coffee. I j...

  • JadeGL posted a message in the forum topic Best obscure or forgotten video game music?. on the General Discussion board

    I always think of Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura when people ask about video game music. Of course, I never see anyone else bring it up, so that makes me think that it is a bit obscure or...

    The first 4K movie I watched at home was The Great Wall and while that movie isn't great story-wise (haha) it looked freakin' phenomenal in 4K. Lush colors, lots of action, just really amazing visual...

    Unfortunately, this thread has gone off the rails. We've tried to keep it on track, but when unrelated youtube videos start getting posted and you can barely tell what the original topic was, it's tim...

    @ares42: you used the term “eliminate” which no one is advocating so far as I can see. Forgive me if that made me think that you were, in turn, thinking that people bringing these issues up are trying...

    Against all logic, Kingdom Hearts III.I played the first game when it first came out, and the second game, then I fell off the series hard. I don't even know if I will be able to understand what is g...

  • JadeGL posted a message in the forum topic I don't agree with criticism leveled against the women of God of War in the GOTY Podcast. on the God of War board

    I think the important thing to get straight is our terms, because while we can all certainly disagree about whether a trope is used well or not, and good stories can overcome pernicious tropes, a conv...

  • JadeGL posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2018: Day Two Deliberations.

    @h0d0rr: I don't disagree that a story can transcend using a tired trope. And even the most tired of tropes can touch us emotionally and resonate with us. That's why they get used so much! And the fac...

  • JadeGL posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2018: Day Two Deliberations.

    God of War has always been a game that has a not great (I’ll try to be diplomatic) relationship with female characters. And that’s not me trying to stir a pot or make a big statement or anything. It’s...

    The biggest gap I have ever had was years, probably at least 3 or 4. I had gotten to a point in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on the original Gameboy that I couldn't progress. I believe it was...
