• mezmero posted a message in the forum topic NPCs who ruined entire games for you?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm pretty immune to being annoyed by voice acting of any kind in a game unless it's just a flat out bad performance. Most recent example of that would be Sonya in MK11 but she's both a playable cha...

    Xenogears>Valkyrie Profile>Vagrant Story.Vagrant Story is still very good in my memory however of these three it has the most inscrutable mechanics even though I'm sure they're fun to break if ...

    Jeff is back-alar bay bay! You know what that means.

    I went way past the deadline composing my top ten list but better late than never I guess.

    Y'know, I always hear Nancy described as a "scamp" but I never see her scampin'...oh there she goes.

  • mezmero posted a message in the forum topic Most Disappointing Game of the Decade?. on the General Discussion board

    It's hard enough picking one out from the current generation much less from the decade. I'll just copy and paste what I said months ago, perhaps appending it a bit.While I generally think it's a goo...

  • mezmero posted a message on the post Episode 242.

    I was gonna say you think XCOM2 runs rough on a PS4Pro Vinny, try playing through it w/WotChosen on a base console which is what I did. Even still I ended up playing a full campaign before WotC(but st...

    2Mello was robbed yo! I'll be playing through Later Alligator in solidarity! I was gonna say some of those Hypnospace tracks sounded like they were done by the Wet Pets guys. I'm somewhat let down tha...

  • mezmero posted a message on the post DAAAANNNNNNN!!!!.

    I can't lie, I'm not a big fan of Dan. He made me cringe way more than he made me smile. I feel bad for being an outlier because clearly lots of people in the community love the guy. I'll at least...

  • mezmero posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on AI: The Somnium Files. on the AI: The Somnium Files board

    I played through this shortly after its release. I'd have to agree with pretty much all your points here. Though I think there are neat things in this game I'd be lying if I said I wasn't somewhat di...

  • mezmero posted a message in the forum topic Data Dump: GOTY 2019 Staff & Guests Breakdown. on the General Discussion board

    Nice, this is interesting as always. It's somewhat sad that the science doesn't support Outer Wilds because I think that game is truly deserving but also based on past data that will often happen wi...

  • mezmero posted a message in the forum topic Giant Bomb GOTY 2019 Discussion Thread. on the General Discussion board

    Even after all the podcasts have wrapped I'm firmly in the middle when it comes to the format. I didn't dislike it for the most part but it wasn't exactly one for the ages either. Weirdly enough I th...

  • mezmero posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2019: Day Five Deliberations.

    For once in a long time I agree with Giant Bomb's #1 game. I know I'm reading way too much into it but Outer Wilds feels so perfect for this site to praise. It is a small game by a small dev that is a...

  • mezmero posted a message on the post Jeff Ranks the Faces in WWE 2K20.

    Considering all the contempt Jeff has for TV and movies and yet he subjects his audience to 2 and a half hours of this... I'm starting to think that maybe philistines make for the worst critics.

  • mezmero posted a message in the forum topic Giant Bomb GOTY 2019 Discussion Thread. on the General Discussion board

    I know Ron Funches was mostly kidding but if anything I'd call the site list selection process for the past several years to be kitschy af. I for one have been secretly pulling for Outer Wilds to tak...

  • mezmero posted a message on the post Evil Uno's Top 10 Games of 2019.

    I distinctly remember going to a PWG show a few years ago where Evil Uno came out to the Flowey music from Undertale, that's when I knew he was legit. Great list from someone with a genuine love of vi...

  • mezmero posted a message in the forum topic Boss' corpse causing damage?. on the General Discussion board

    I believe after you beat The Fear in MGS3 the cutscene of him exploding into arrows results in you needing to first-aid a poison arrow out of Snake's leg. Not sure if that counts.Most of the bosses i...
