    Sounds good. I know Vinny has prepared for this type of thing -- staff being able to stream on their own -- and it'll be awesome to see how it pans out.

  • PananaBeel posted a message in the forum topic This game has nothing to say and its ideas never evolve?. on the Death Stranding board

    I'm about 30 hours in and I'm starting to agree with their review in some ways. For example, the fact that the message doesn't really change. Not that I have a problem with that necessarily, just that...

    @liquiddragon: I just tried this based on your recommendation (there's a free demo on Steam). It's very relaxing and the writing is enjoyable. I wondered why I was given a choice with some dialogue op...

    Interesting read @notnert427. The ad for the Norman Reedus show is only ever displayed when you're taking a shit, and even then you can avoid seeing it by skipping the cut scene as he enters the toile...

    @briarpack: One thing that helped me on rocky terrain was popping up the front wheel of the motorcycle up on the face/peak of the rocks to gain some traction before traversing them. But it sounds like...

    I'm really enjoying myself. During the first three or four hours, though, I was starting to wonder if I'd be able to keep up playing at the current rate of mounting frustrations. Call it a learning cu...

    @therealturk: I'm slightly worried about this. I haven't played Nioh yet, but since its release on PS Plus I've installed it and plan to give it a try next week. Do you have any tips/advice to a new p...

    Two stars?! Ouch. I've pretty much read and seen nothing but negative things about this game. I think it's sort of funny because Kojima is like this rockstar game dev who seems to be getting himself i...

  • PananaBeel posted a message on the post Death Stranding Review.

    @mrfluke: Exactly. The fact that there is such a split is intriguing. It's the same with movies, of course. The more unorthodox a piece of art/media is, the greater chance it will polarize its audienc...

  • PananaBeel posted a message in the forum topic Which game have you been most disappointed by this year?. on the General Discussion board

    The Beast Inside, by far. I keep seeing glowing reviews from this game, which makes me want to give it another try. But after like fifteen minutes (I wanted to quit after five) I stopped. The writing...

  • PananaBeel posted a message in the forum topic Which game have you played for the longest period of time?. on the General Discussion board

    Old School Runescape by far. I've got a few 99s, including mining, which took quite a bit of time. Aside from that, I sank a few hundred hours into Team Fortress 2, which is really a modest amount co...

  • PananaBeel posted a message in the forum topic How are you enjoying yourself?. on the The Outer Worlds board

    I'm loving it. I've never played an Obsidian game nor have I been much of an RPG fan. This game has changed that. My favorite aspect is the challenging decision-making process. Morality is quite flex...
