• militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic How do you eat your Oreos?. on the Off-Topic board

    I preferred the side with no filling so I'd sometimes twist it, eat the less tasty one with the filling, then the plain one. Otherwise, I'd eat it in one bite, or rarely dip it in milk. I used to have...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic How have your gaming habits changed as you get older?. on the General Discussion board

    My parents had a low opinion of video games as a hobby, so I was always reluctant to ask them for money to buy games, which is why I tended to replay games often and gravitated toward lengthier games ...

    This video all but alleviated the concerns I had after the delay. It looks like Doom, except better, and there's more of it.

    I'm halfway through Day 2 and have yet to see any of the crew's individual videos, but I prefer the new format. In fact, I'm slightly dreading the final two days. Right now, most of the discussions ar...

    I make new resolutions throughout the year, but the start of a new year is as good a time as any to make new ones. So here goes.I fell short of my goal this year to read 10 books (currently in the fin...

    I played fewer games this year than I did last year, but I feel better about them. My list currently consists of a whopping two games:Sekiro, which is possibly my favorite From game; andOuter Wilds, w...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic Your Most Anticipated Game of 2020?. on the General Discussion board

    I voted for Doom Eternal mostly because it's the game I'd like to play most right now. 2016's Doom had my favorite gameplay loop and combat in a shooter. Although the delay has me a little concerned e...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic What do you do when you can't do what you want to do?. on the General Discussion board

    When I feel like playing something in particular that I just can't or would be a hassle to set up, I just look up a QL if there's one. I can't imagine I'd run out of things to do if my main gaming pla...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic Black Friday Hauls?. on the General Discussion board

    Video games-wise, I just extended my GB Premium and PS Plus subscriptions until 2021, because why not? Actually, it's mostly because I have a lot of annual expenses due between May and July and those ...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic 2019 - Actually one of the best years of gaming (if you like things other than AAA spectacles). on the General Discussion board

    I feel like now that the development cycle of most big-budget games is at least three years; with fewer of them coming out, every year will be a lean one for some people. For me, it was last year.I'm ...

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

    I think the game should punish you for expending Spirit Emblems on repeated runs. In fact, I thought Ben's spamming of the prosthetic tools early in the video makes a good case for having a limited in...

    The two that immediately jump to mind are The Witch and Raw. I also just saw It Comes at Night, and while it may not be a conventional horror movie, I found it tense throughout. As far as conventional...

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

    @humanity: I think there are quite a few interesting directions a story about conflict in this region can take, none of which straddle the fence of trying to be ripped from the headlines and "apolitic...

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

    Since its announcement, this game has kind of rubbed me up the wrong way. The more I see and read about it to prove that I'm hastily judging a game I haven't played nor intend to, the less my concerns...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic I don't get the purpose of Boss run-ups in modern games. on the General Discussion board

    I didn't play Hollow Knight for long, so I can't comment on that game in particular. With earlier Souls games, though, I think the intent was that by going through the level you accumulate more of the...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic Christmas has been cancelled - Doom Eternal delayed to March 2020. on the Doom Eternal board

    I thought it was fortuitous that the game's – I guess now, original – release date coincided with my annual leave. The delay feels doubly disappointing as a result. It was the game for me this year, ...
