    @insomniak08: There are some pretty good theories that she didn't actually lose that family life, they merely moved back to Jackson proper for a better support system after living an unsustainable fan...

    The more I glance around video reviews, I’m realizing I needn’t worry if I’ll get bored of this or something. I finally moved up from my old 720p LG from 2009 to a TCL 6 Series Monday and while I can ...

    @plan6 @mellotronrules: I do agree that the "boss fight" felt unnecessary - I also felt that way about Rat King, but that was more just a personal thing with the advancements of the Infected to begin ...

    I voted 10+, but that'd be a conservative 12 or 13, and I finish about 8 or 9. The unfinished games tend to be PS+ offerings or critically acclaimed games I was put off by that went on deep discount s...

    @plan6 Maybe smug is the wrong word. Cado does something similar, though. He argues that Ellie's pursuit of Abby maybe makes sense because she never learned introspection from Joel because Joel has no...

    I moreso mean when it blinds them to certain things just because it makes their point stronger. At one point they get into a conversation about the conservatism in Jackson and how disturbed they were ...

    Without having done it myself or played the game proper in years, I'd wager it could be done in 15-ish hours. I remember my save files typically wrapping up around 50 hours back in my college days, a...

    The only map icons I can recall willingly skipping in a map game are Far Cry 4 because I was in the process of uninstalling the game after getting bored with it and the Skellige sea marks in Witcher b...

    Polygon’s review is a pretty big sell for me. Sounds like Perit’s issues with the game have almost entirely to do with being a games critic whose played too many games like this - the last big map ful...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic How many different genres do you all play?. on the General Discussion board

    Mostly third person, story heavy action games like GTA, inFamous, Uncharted and the like. I do sprinkle in liberal doses of other genres, though, but usually in super sparse increments. I really enjoy...
