  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Anyone feel weird about playing this game after the GOTY discussions?. on the NieR:Automata board

    I'll just weigh in that, regardless of the justifications you can make for the look of the B-Units/2B in particular, her weird out-of-place skimpy outfit is a complete and utter roadblock to me gettin...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post Middle-earth: Shadow of War Review.

    Really interesting how this is almost exactly what happened with XCOM2. GiantBomb's 5-star GOTY gets a sequel that improves on its predecessor in a lot of key ways, but makes a few damning mistakes t...

    BioShock Infinite was delivered to me at like 9AM, I walked the dog and had some breakfast, booted it up at 11 and then played through to completion at 6 the next morning.

    No - as the Build A Bomb design doc established, the GiantBomb Bomb is STOKED to explode. This bomb looks awkward and uncomfortable.

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic What do you consider to be a masterpiece?. on the General Discussion board

    Because of the nature of video-games as both a deeply-rooted commercial enterprise but also a medium for artistic expression, I'd probably say there's two definitions for 'masterpiece' - a masterpiece...

    Crusader Kings 2 was just confusing and overwhelming and dull as hell when I first opened it. Then over the course of a few gym carpools I had a buddy explain the basics to me, and suddenly dozens of...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post My First E3 Episode 5.

    If I was hungry, had been waiting in line for several minutes and it was a good meatball sub, I would absolutely pay up to $20 for it. I'd just skip dinner. (That said, the hypothetical falls apart ...

  • LackingSaint posted a message on the post We Streamed Some Mass Effect: Andromeda.

    Maybe I'm wearing the rose-tinted glasses, it just feels like this game is utterly lacking the immediate sense of humanity (for lack of a better term) that pretty much made the original trilogy so coo...

    Probably a toss-up between System Shock 2, BioShock 2 and Portal 2. All of them are paced fantastically and really keep you invested on the story end. There was probably a time I would've said Half-Li...
