    @vortextk: I'd heard of that but assumed it was probably janky since they'd have to manage time- and action-based triggers throughout the entire game to make it work. Either way, I'll still almost cer...

    Now that I've actually finished watching the Direct and have seen the changes included in the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, I really hope they get patched into the other releases. It's virtually...

  • nnickers posted a message in the forum topic Sleeper, Breakout, and Bust for Nintendo Direct 2.13.2019. on the General Discussion board

    My main takeaways:That new Fire Emblem looks like it has impressively bad graphics and bland art design. The battle sequences shown all seemed to take place on fields of dull green mud and the colors ...

    The article linked in the OP mentions that this was originally pitched as a Kickstarter stretch goal, so I hope backers are sent free codes. Otherwise, that would seem pretty shitty...

    My first, immediate thought:do you need a PC this powerful? Are you going to be doing any intense work on this outside of games? Otherwise, while I can understand wanting to future-proof a bit, and if...

    Thought it controlled like garbage and the game ran terribly on my PC. My 1070 and 6700K run every other modern game on High/Max at 1440p, but I couldn't hit 60 in the Anthem demo even with all setti...

    Best of luck with a text-chat D&D session. My friends and I typically run 8-12 hours per session when we're all at the same table so I can't even fathom how slowly this would move. I'll definitel...

    When I was a kid they all seemed amazing and were life-consuming. Since then, I've just been chasing that old high that I know I'll never find.

    Damn, has anything ever won by nearly as large of a margin as God of War has here? It has 50% more points in the weighted list than the runner-up. That's absolutely nuts.
