    I liked X-Com 2 a lot, but to me it wasn't anything amazing. Just a good, perhaps slightly disappointing sequel. But the War of the Chosen expansion put it as one of my top games of the decade. Th...

    Wow Initial D is a really good call. I like those a lot, but my favorite has to be Cowboy Bebop.

  • madpierrot posted a message in the forum topic Persona 5 Strikers is heavy on P5 spoilers and requires you play P5.. on the Persona 5 Strikers board

    I feel saying Persona 5 Strikers is filled with Persona 5 spoilers a bit odd. I've seen it brought up a bit that this more or less a sequel to 5, through reviews and marketing, so you'd expect it to h...

  • madpierrot posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2020: Day One.

    This was really great. Was wondering how well it'd go when they aren't all together in the same room and they made it work. Best Dad category was a great "joke" category that lead to some great dis...

    I really loved this generation. Last gen (I guess two ago now) I was an Xbox 360 guy and loved it, but switched to the PS4 because of the exclusives and loved it just as much. Big change for me was...

    I feel like I'm in the same boat as a lot of people here where I remember TechTV fondly. When I was in college, my roommate would have TechTV on all the time as just background noise that'd we'd lis...

    Millennium Actress - This is the definition of a masterpiece to me. Pretty much anything by Kon is, but for me this is his best. Best anime movie, best romance anime, just one of the best anime per...

  • madpierrot posted a message in the forum topic Do you recommend Dragon Age Inquisition?. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    I'd give it a hard pass. I know the game seemed fairly well liked, but I borderline hated it. Dragon Age Origins is an all time favorite for me, but since then I haven't really enjoyed the series. ...

    I wasn't really a fan of Toradora, but if you're looking for some other romance/comedies to check out that aren't too old. I'd suggest maybe checking out Kimi Ni Todoke, ReLife and a personal favori...

    This is one of those weird reviews where you see so many high scores, but three outlets that don't use scores (Kotaku, Polygon and Vice) all kinda... hated it. This is one of the aspects of game rev...
