  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic What are your go-to mods for single-player?. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    This trainer has a lot of fun options. I played the game as a 12-foot tall ape man who could run at 60 miles per hour, and I can't imagine getting through the game any other way. https://www.rdr2mo...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic No Goodbye Montage for Jeff Gerstmann. on the General Discussion board

    I mean, Jeff has been fairly open during his various podcasts over the past two months that there was some acrimony between him and RV's corporate management and it's not exactly a secret that that's...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic 2022 Opinion on VR?. on the General Discussion board

    It's... fine. You can get a very good idea of what's out there by watching the VRodeo videos GB put out a couple years ago. Nothing much has really changed since then. For my money, the definitive ...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Elden Ring.. oh Elden Ring!. on the Elden Ring board

    I love Miyazaki's games, but I'm really not sold on Elden Ring. It looks like a knockoff Souls-Like more than the next evolution of the genre. Like, if the budget were lower and I didn't know anythi...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Sad state of GB in 2022. on the General Discussion board

    I'm resubbed to premium for at least another year, and the biggest change I'd like to see is having shorter, more focused videos rather than multi-hour long streams that could feature anything. With ...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic The Value of Written Reviews in 2021 (And Beyond!). on the General Discussion board

    @yyninja: Thirded. I think Gamepass further exacerbates the issue of limited time. I know there are a lot of good games on Gamepass that I haven't played yet, but that very fact makes the prospect o...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic How do you approach dialogue choices in narrative games?. on the General Discussion board

    Always pick the dumbest option. Especially in David Cage games.I "missed out on" (read: was spared) 1/3 of Detroit: Become Human because I made choices that the game didn't like in the first Kara sequ...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Would this game have come out/been fixed with another one year delay?. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    I'm sure the bugs could have been fixed and the various systems could have been improved, but my issues with the game are a lot more fundamental to its design than that. At some point, they decided ...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 Spoiler-Free Gameplay Discussion/ Bug Talk. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    I'm nearly finished with Act II and I'm pretty lukewarm on the game. The main and side missions are all generally pretty polished, but the pacing is really strange; you'll sometimes have like 4 miss...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic 2020 Gone in a Flash. on the General Discussion board

    Divine Intervention was cool back in the day. It was definitely one of the best-looking Flash games.I think that Water Balloon Drop is still the quintessential Flash game, but I can't find the origin...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 Spoiler-Free Gameplay Discussion/ Bug Talk. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    One of the biggest things that disappointed me when I started playing was the tone. I like my cyberpunk to be dark, bleak, and somber. This game is loud, garish, and goofy. Playing some more toda...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 Spoiler-Free Gameplay Discussion/ Bug Talk. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    I agree with a lot of folks that the intro feels weirdly compressed and inconsequential, especially with the montage. I played Street Kid, and I was actually pretty invested in the drama they set up ...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic How's your performance?. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    I just read a tip on Reddit that the GeForce Experience installer has been failing to correctly install the new update that optimizes Cyberpunk. They recommend using DDU (https://www.wagnardsoft.com...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 Mega-Review Thread (PC). on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    @theoracleofgame:Yeah, I hear you about the lazy "Look guys, we're doing the shitty thing that we're ostensibly against! Isn't that such clever satire?" move. That's always eye-rollingly bad. I think ...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 epilepsy warning. on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    This really sucks. If they don't patch this ASAP, that's a really shitty look for the developer. At the very least, they should put in a splash screen when you first launch the game giving you a wa...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 Mega-Review Thread (PC). on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    @Kemuri07Yeah, fair enough. If the lunacy of the past year has shown anything, it's that propaganda is shockingly effective. I think I just really bristle at the idea that the way to counteract bad p...

  • notkcots posted a message in the forum topic Cyberpunk 2077 Mega-Review Thread (PC). on the Cyberpunk 2077 board

    I thought Gamespot's review was fine, if not especially insightful. Like whoever it was said earlier, PC Gamer's review engaged a lot more with what the game is trying to do and what it offers while n...
