  • OpusOfTheMagnum posted a message in the forum topic Have Achievements Ruined Games for You?. on the General Discussion board

    No, but I do find they are a lot less creative and fun these days. It’s almost always a list of completion items and typical MP performance based stuff. Gone are the days of carrying a Gnome around or...

  • OpusOfTheMagnum posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hob.

    This game looks bad. Has some neat stuff but between the issues and just not being a fan of these style of games (they always feel too simple to be engaging for me) I might pass on this. Camera and fr...

    I used to have quite a few from PAX and stuff but those have slowly gone away. Have a few Giant Bomb shirts and that’s about it for me. I do have a t shirt and a bunch of sweatbands from my buddy’s VR...

    @slag: CBS does have a property or two that has dabbled in the gaming market. If you’re okay with them having Star Trek games and a friend of the site on to talk about a CBS property video game, I’m c...

    @galerian: yuuuuup. IB sucks solo. Except the one time you manage to carry the team and do all the work and feel awesome, but then it’s back to being destroyed because no one knows how to use a radar ...

  • OpusOfTheMagnum posted a message in the forum topic What's the most you've ever spent on a game?. on the General Discussion board

    I suppose it depends on what counts. I purchased ArmA 3 for about 5-6 other people and the DLC for some of those folks as well as myself, so if that counts here it’s probably the most I’ve spent on a ...

    Capitalism works. If you want it and it’s worth the cost, pay up. If not don’t and move along. I spent hours and hours with Ori because of the art and music despite being terrrrrrrible at 2D platforme...

    Best of both worlds: 144hz at QHD. Honestly unless you’re a professional counterstrike player he 240hz monitors seem kinda silly. I’m sure it’s nice on occasion but so few games will hit those frame r...
