    If you are at all interested in flight/military/naval things the USS Midway museum is highly recommended. It's the most interesting museum I've ever been too, because it's a relatively modern aircra...

    Speaking of brands. Has anyone gone to a mall lately? Holy $%^& is it a ghost town over there! It's almost as if there has been a fundamental sea change in retail, or something.

    @deckard: You're not wrong but if anything amazing did happen to come out in December it would be a contender for next year's "Best 2018 game of 2019" category.

    I really don't get the appeal of this at all.

    Any game dev who goes down the FMV road, in some ways, deserves the negative backlash they get because expectations of television show storytelling are WAY higher than video game storytelling. Case in...

  • pappafost posted a message in the forum topic I got a new 1440p 145hz G-Sync monitor. What now?. on the General Discussion board

    Battlefield 1 is what made me a believer in high refresh rate monitors. The feeling of smoothness is uncanny. It's actually somewhat of an unfair advantage if you think about it. Two people see each o...

  • pappafost posted a message in the forum topic Unpopular Opinion - There is NOTHING wrong with crunch. on the General Discussion board

    It's easy to say no to the question in the abstract, "Is crunch bad?". Let's get very concrete for a moment: -Is sitting in a non-ergonomic desk chair 80 hours a week bad?-Is eating high-fat, high-s...

    I wonder if this is like that other horror game: "J.J. Abrams and the Island of TV Show Pilots"

  • pappafost posted a message in the forum topic Some of the worst controls in an AAA game. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    I kicked a dog I was trying to pet on accident. A witness runs off and I have a wanted level for animal cruelty. RDR2's control scheme is SO BAD that they made me kick a dog!

  • pappafost posted a message in the forum topic Why Can't I Get Into This Game?. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    This game has frustrating controls and the game mechanics are overly complex. It looks like a 3rd person action/adventure game (ala Uncharted/Tomb Raider) but is actually a wild west outlaw simulato...

  • pappafost posted a message in the forum topic How Will Rockstars' Boast of 100 Hour Work Weeks Affect Your Play Through? - Updated. on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    They are going to need damage control for the damage control, because in the damage control response comments Houser implied that the 100 hour work week was from "being passionate" and it was "working...

    Whoever made that intro needs multiple raises! Also, are the chronic PSVR tracking issues resolved, or is that still ongoing?

    Walk away from any deal where they are trying to pressure you on time. Stay in control. Do not get emotionally attached to one particular car on the lot, or even one color. You lose bargaining leverag...

  • pappafost posted a message in the forum topic World War 2 Fatigue?. on the General Discussion board

    I think the problem was that WW2 games did the same thing over and over: Western Europe from American perspective. D-Day over and over, American paratroopers over and over. Probably because of how p...

    Looking at the chat in the Battlefield V Alpha, a lot of people were worried that EA would COD-ify battlefield, IE, take what was unique about it and turn it into a COD-like because of COD's popularit...

    There's nothing like the feeling of being "in the zone" with a competitive shooter. I got that way with Battlefield 4, Battlefield 1, and then with PUBG. With PUBG specifically there is a pacing and t...
