  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Anger at Twitch. on the General Discussion board

    @ragtagbag: I'm not entirely sure you read everything I said. Like I said, my ire with Twitch is VERY low on my priorities. But, can I be upset that this is not the first time a live-streamed massacre...

    @bigsocrates: I picked knife just out of the blue, no special significance or political slant to that. (Though, I don't want to derail the thread, but gun control is a lot more complicated in the US t...

    @bigsocrates: But the use of Twitch is a symptom, not the core issue. It can help, sure, but saying that the issue is that Twitch needs to up its moderation is like coming to the scene of a murder and...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Anger at Twitch. on the General Discussion board

    @brian_: Pretty much exactly this, yeah.At a certain point, the issue is larger than the moderation policies of a streaming site. The real issue is decades of GOP rhetoric portraying black men as dang...

    This is 7 years late, but, for Arnold Schwarzenegger Fulton lines:"Need a lift?"

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Are open world games better with limited storytelling?. on the General Discussion board

    @ll_exile_ll: As Justin258 brought up, it’s not whether there is story or not, it is how intrusive it is and whether you can still engage with the game how you want to. We’re talking about design and ...

    @finaldasa: I could be seeing it with rose-colored glasses, for sure, but I played the main game in 2019, and then the DLC in 2020 so imo it holds up!

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Are open world games better with limited storytelling?. on the General Discussion board

    @finaldasa: I absolutely agree, and I didn't mean to imply that stories in games are never valuable. It's more, as you said, that cutscenes, and egregiously on-rails scripted sections, and walk-and-ta...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic So about Elden Ring's combat.... on the Elden Ring board

    @ares42: Fair. In my experience, even in my first couple of fights with Margit, who everyone says is the antichrist of Elden Ring, the dodges felt pretty self evident. His extra light daggers thrown o...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic So about Elden Ring's combat.... on the Elden Ring board

    @ares42: I'm mixed on this. I agree that blocking is viable, and Elden Ring more than earlier Souls games rewards blocking. The Guard Counter is fantastic, (though many later enemies have specific pat...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic So about Elden Ring's combat.... on the Elden Ring board

    I think Sekiro has the best, most responsive combat From has ever developed, so of course I'm a little salty that they went back to the Dark Souls rolls and woefully delayed parry timings. That being ...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Are open world games better with limited storytelling?. on the General Discussion board

    Hard agree. The thing that makes me bounce off every Assassin's Creed isn't the repetitive tasks or the bloat, it's the ridiculous amount of No Gameplay. Even if you skip cutscenes, you have in-game w...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on the movie "Macgruber". on the Off-Topic board

    I watched it recently because Film Crit Hulk recommended it. Apparently Christopher Nolan is a fan? Wild. I think, like a lot of comedies, it's uneven, but the parts that hit are so damn funny. SPOIL...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic The Reviews Are In. on the Elden Ring board

    @ares42: Yeah, I feel like I've had the opposite Margit experience just because I only went to Stormveil after a dozen+ hours or more of exploration. We're talking 40 dex, Uchigatana +5/6ish here. He ...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic The Reviews Are In. on the Elden Ring board

    It's really interesting hearing everyone's different opinions on this! I was expecting a near-unanimous chorus of praise or something.Personally, 30 hours in, I love it. It's an early GOTY contender f...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic SIFU completion age.. on the Sifu board

    I haven't finished it yet, but I'm starting the tower at age 43 or so, which feels respectable. I fucking LOVED the museum, as well as the boss fight -- the second half especially. The music and mood ...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic What do you hate about marvel movies and their current popularity? (including movies, games, etc.). Not just MCU.. on the Off-Topic board

    @banefirelord:That's definitely a big part of it. I sound way too old for my actual age when I say something like this, but I'm unnerved by how much popular media, in both games and films, sort of res...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Push diversity in games and media, is it something to look back on fondly? Example: This is when we did the right thing.. on the General Discussion board

    @rejizzle said:I would even disagree with the phrasing "push for diversity". Maybe I'm a cynic, but it seems like a lot of these companies get pulled kicking and screaming into modernity by the creati...

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic Just to negative.. on the General Discussion board

    Count me in for "wait, people think Jess is negative?" Is this the weird constant criticism of Abby thing all over again?

  • LapsarianGiraff posted a message in the forum topic What do you like about Marvel Movies?. on the Off-Topic board

    I do not care for Marvel one bit. That being said, that's mostly for "it's devouring all of cinema and accelerating the inevitable decline of mainstream blockbusters" reasons. It's obvious what they d...
