    Gotta admit, I was skeptical of the format, but it totally works. Very informative and entertaining to boot. I can't wait for next week (even if it doesn't bring hot scoops).

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post See You Next Game.

    I’d hate to get sappy but I need to get this off my chest. I’ll be brief. There were times I don’t think I would’ve gotten through if not for this site. The period after Ryan’s passing coincided with ...

    Is this game rogue-like or rogue-lite?

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic Four months into 2020: What's your favourite new release this year?. on the General Discussion board

    I voted for Doom Eternal, but Kentucky Route Zero is definitely the best thing I played all year. I forgot that it came out this year. It feels so long since I played it even thought I didn't finish i...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic Does Mick Gordon's departure from Id make you less enthusiastic about what's next for Doom or Id/Bethesda in general?. on the Mick Gordon board

    I felt like his music was off-kilter enough that it would stand out if compared against other (?) metal soundtracks. I liked the music in Doom 2016, it helped define what that game was (at least for m...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic How did you get into the Souls/Souls-likes?. on the General Discussion board

    The reputation surrounding the Souls games made me ignore them for so long. The first Souls gameplay footage I've seen was the Dark Souls QL (with Rorie, Vinny, and Brad) sometime after it came out.It...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic So it's been about a month of Giant Bomb on Lockdown - what does everyone think?. on the General Discussion board

    It's been great so far. There's something consolatory to seeing others trying to work from home. The content itself has been better than I could've imagined. I feel like we've been spoiled for choice....

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic A positive thread about what you're currently playing. on the General Discussion board

    I played through the entirety of Kentucky Route Zero leading up to Doom's release. I'm surprised by how little discussion there had been of the game in these forums. I'm aware the first four acts came...

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post Doom Eternal Review.

    Great review, Brad. I wish this game had the wider appeal of the previous one. Eternal is definitely an ambitious game, but a messy one as a result; though I'll always take that over an iterative sequ...

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post 628: Respect the Headcrab.

    It's cool when the crew is championing a game you're enjoying, but it's arguably more valuable when someone has an opinion different from yours or that of the mainstream. The staff's diversity (at lea...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic DOOM Eternal Impressions Thread. on the Doom Eternal board

    The only point in the game where I found myself neither engaged nor actively having fun for a significant length of time is the final level. After a typically thrilling first encounter, everything goe...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic DOOM Eternal Impressions Thread. on the Doom Eternal board

    @bhlaab: I get what you're saying, but in practice, that translates to having weapons that are either all-rounders or easy to master without any quirks to work around. The difficulty setting I'm playi...

    @jesus_phish said: @militantfreudian said: At least in this way, Eternal has the same sensibilities as say, Sekiro: both demand you play them the "right" way. And since, for me, it feels goods and loo...

  • militantfreudian posted a message in the forum topic DOOM Eternal Impressions Thread. on the Doom Eternal board

    I realized after replaying Doom 2016 last year that part of why I loved it was its novelty, which, to me, masked some of the game's flaws. They were definitely more noticeable and felt on a second pla...

  • 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 ...

  • militantfreudian posted a message on the post Doom Eternal.

    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...
