    I've just finished The Hex and I've changed my opinion on Giantbomb GOTY 2018 to "How could Jeff betray Tapper like this?"

    I like the new format a lot.The best new addition by a country mile and it isn't even a competition award: The decision to include games released between the last GOTY deliberations and January 1Bigg...

  • MagnetPhonics posted a message in the forum topic Wow the starting roster size really sucks, huh?. on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate board

    For me, the problem is not that there is progression or that unlocking required. It's that the progression is *TERRIBLE*. It's still complicated enough that you need to look up how it works on the in...

    The "Challenger Approaching" thing is fun. But the conditions for triggering the fights in Smash are terrible, they literally punish you for playing the game.Are people that far gone that they see, "S...

    @the_nubster: One thing I've noticed with some of the incredibly stupid spirits fights (The Kapp'n one is the worst so far) is that you're supposed to find a spirit that nullifies the effect in one of...

    I was hoping Hitman 2 would be one of the best games of the year. But after trying to rebind the keys in the PC version it's clearly worse than Quiet Man. Sorry I don't make the rules.I think it actua...

    I played it over a week or so, finishing about one mission a night. IMHO it's one of the best point and click adventures ever.It also has at least one contender for 2018's Best Moment.

    @robpigott: You can add "external links" to an itch.io page. I don't think the game page even technically needs an actual game attached to it (download or embedded.) So you could just link to the Ques...

    I have been messing around in Pico8 again, making terrible minigames based on some classic gameplay moments from Giant Bomb anniversaries past (and future?)

    Look. Having played Jalopy in early access and now. If Ben hadn't played the way he did, *which isn't that different to how a typical game would go*, then the quick look would have been over in ten mi...

    Is anyone else abandoning nearly 50% of their runs on or before the very first turn because, while the game does remember your previous squad and pilot, it does not remember which mech you put the pil...

    Blitzkrieg are OK, without the attached achievements I'd never play as them voluntarily though. Every stage with them seems to either be perfect or a wipe/abandon timeline. I also seem to end up with ...

    @bisonhero: I get that much. But the dialogue suggests they are throwing down extra to help you out. Yet I had the same 1 remaining power point I ended the previous stage with, except now with ~8 extr...

    The writing is not great, but it doesn't need to be for the game to be great. Except that it's confusing or actively deceptive about how the game works in parts. For example, to harp on the poor descr...
