    Assimilation is when you acknowledge the source of the thing, appropriation is when you fully subsume the thing and create a new culture from it.In the bar world, the most controversial subject you co...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic If you liked Dead Cells, better play it before the new Patch update.... on the Dead Cells board

    Any follow up on this? I just bought the game on PSN from the TGA sale and I enjoyed my first couple hours with it quite a bit, but I'm curious how these changes have actually settled in with longtim...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic What are your December catch-up games?. on the General Discussion board

    Well, thanks to the Game Awards sale, I finally bit the bullet on Celeste and Dead Cells. These are the sorts of games I tend to really, really appreciate but lack the skill to finish. For example, be...

    @tonybaloni said: TonyBaloni •My gut tells me that RDR2 was ruined for Dan because he was too locked into finishing. At the same time Alex pushed all the way through, but I've found that the best way...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic What would you like Rockstar to improve on in RDR2 in future updates?. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    The horse inventory is officially an unnecessary complication. I was never that bothered by it when I was mostly focused on side tasks, but now that I’m trying to get through the story before these ga...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic After rants and raves about the story: I'm just not seeing it.. on the God of War board

    @casepb: I think the game was a pretty proper length, particularly if you were engaging in the side activities as they became available rather then saving them for the end (though I will say, with hin...

    Sounds like you're just not into it. For what it's worth, I recently watched Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven and came to the realization I think that's a shit ass movie despite many claiming it's one of ...

    Why is everyone so sure that Milla Jovovich doesn't continue acting to keep her husband employed?

  • Nodima posted a message on the post Episode 183.

    Podcast keeps stopping at 10:48 for me. Tape reel keeps rolling, browser functions fine, I can pause/play but the runtime doesn't proceed and no audio plays. It also won't pick up audio if I advance a...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic The vitriol surrounding Fallout 76 is very puzzling to me. on the Fallout 76 board

    The vitriol surrounding almost anything games-related - from Fallout 76's core gameplay to Alex, Dan and Vinny telling a two-hour joke about The Quiet Man with Civilization as the scapegoat - is comp...

    When these games were coming out my sister was just getting into video games and somehow came across a copy of Spyro which she played pretty obsessively. Because the video game consoles were mine and...

  • Nodima posted a message on the post 558: Boattle Royale.

    @johnymyko They usually downplay that sort of stuff pretty heavily. Even when Cook Serve Delicious came out and had The Ryan Davis burger recipe in it, Dan helmed the Quick Look and it was basically ...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic The Quiet Man is essentially doing the story presentation of Hotline Miami 1, but doing it poorly *spoilers*. on the The Quiet Man board

    Hotline Miami probably also works a lot better than The Quiet Man because its core gameplay is fun, its art direction lends itself to a more abstract (ie. throwback/minimal) form of storytelling, and ...

  • Nodima posted a message in the forum topic What do you prefer: graphics, story or gameplay?. on the General Discussion board

    I'd love to say gameplay, but I will overlook a lot for graphics and story, or to expand, world building/immersion/characters. I mostly play big budget action games hoping the gameplay can match up to...

    Kind of disappointed they realized they weren't starting the Quick Look at the start of the game so quickly, but at least kicking things off a ways in allowed us this instant-classic from Jeff:"Oh, it...
