  • octaslash posted a message on the post 728: Loan Wolves.

    I do not doubt that reviewing games on a deadline is hard work, but it was hard to hear Tamoor throw any type of blame at publishers when he admitted he was in charge of those review policies. If he’s...

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic What do you want Giant Bomb to be?. on the General Discussion board

    I'd like them to look at new games. There are more games than ever coming at me on all kinds of subscription services. Giant Bomb used to be my go to place to help sort through the mess. Now I load up...

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart - Reviews & Discussion. on the Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart board

    @spacemanspiff00: Most bugs are easy to forget/forgive when the game checkpoints constantly and reloads in 2 seconds.

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Vinny, Brad, and Alex have started a new Podcast and streaming project called Nextlander. on the General Discussion board

    I have heard 3rd hand (don’t trust me) from a press sneak fuck (don’t trust me) that there was definitely a falling out with Boss Jeff. Regardless of the specific reasons, when three people put in the...

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Sounds Like Valve is Prototyping a Handheld Steam Console. on the Valve Corporation board

    @bybeach: The Steam controller may have been discontinued after four years, but it made many older PC games accessible to more people and it's still supported to this day.

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

    This is very ambitious for a remaster. I can't really think of another remaster that has attempted so much in one package. Pretty much every texture has been touched in some way and most of the charac...

  • octaslash posted a message on the post 685: I Did It for the Grookey.

    I understand why some people lump RE 5 and 6 together (they're both action heavy games), but I don't think they understand how much worse 6 is on every level, including the basic shooting and movement...

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX (Part 3).

    @fugoy: It isn't presented as a Kingdom Hearts series. They usually don't finish games on Playdate.

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic How to get the remastered next gen title of Spider-Man. on the General Discussion board

    You can purchase an upgrade for Miles Morales in the game. Try starting a new game and there should be a slot that lets you upgrade.

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Amnesia: Rebirth.

    Rebirth isn’t as scary as Dark Decent and the story isn’t as good as Soma, but it’s a good time.The game tells you up front not to worry about winning, so I wouldn’t worry too much about your match si...

  • octaslash posted a message on the post The Cooling Springs of Astro's Playroom.

    Glad to hear Jeff say it has a steady framerate, because the video looks a little bit garbage.

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Mass Effect 3 - Part 26 (The Finale).

    Alex mistakenly wondering into an ending choice is really the only way to end this series. I was kind of okay with the weird original ending, but I have to admit it is probably better with the trucklo...

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Using two internet connections at the same time?. on the PC board

    Speedify is a decent VPN that will that you prioritize which connection is used and set download limits on each one (or combine them).

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Will Series X/PS5 games be "held back" by Series S?. on the General Discussion board

    The primary difference is the GPU. If developers are actually aiming for a native 4K target on the Series X, the S should have no problem running those same games at lower resolution with the appropri...

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Super Mario 3D All-Stars.

    Activision is doing full remakes of their games for the same price. The fact that these ports aren’t even up to the standards of fan made emulators is truly fucking embarrassing. They lack control opt...

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Episode 279.

    $220 is too much for any type of storage, but transferring games off a cheaper external USB drive seems like a very reasonable option. It’s weird seeing people pretend like the expensive option is the...

  • octaslash posted a message in the forum topic Do you recommend Dragon Age Inquisition?. on the Dragon Age: Inquisition board

    It's not what I wanted out after playing 1&2, but it is a pretty excellent game on its own. It is definitely bloated with bad side content, that can luckily be ignored for the most part.

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Mass Effect 3 - Part 22.

    Please, please, please fix Alex's mic. It hurts my ears.

  • octaslash posted a message on the post Episode 274.

    Three clicks to mute any Windows program. I know you guys acknowledge this, but still. Having the updates come through the game is very annoying though.
