    Maybe if I was like Andrew Reiner and could just watch a game for a few minutes on someone's stream and decide "yeah, that's worth $70 of my rather low amount of income" then maybe... but as someone ...

  • poobumbutt posted a message in the forum topic What's the Greatest Video Game: X-COM 2 (War of the Chosen). on the XCOM 2 board

    After watching almost but not quite half of Waypoint's X-Com 2 playthrough so far, I've come to the conclusion that X-Com 2 is the game with the highest ratio of "love to watch:don't like to play" of...

  • poobumbutt posted a message in the forum topic The Ascent - Game Discussion. on the The Ascent board

    As many others have said, I ran into a bug - if a quick Google search is any indication, a common one - on the main mission Mutual Dependencies. First, the game doesn't change objectives when you arr...

  • poobumbutt posted a message on the post I think this game is really great.

    I'm glad you like it. It's good to hear, since I'm going through it and I've been enjoying it as well. Good to know it keeps up the quality, I could imagine another game losing stride 60% of the way ...

  • poobumbutt posted a message in the forum topic How did you feel about what happened to Ethan?. on the Resident Evil Village board

    I spent all of RE7 lamenting how lame and one-note Ethan was, and I was worried that RE8 would just be more of him being Save Family Man, the most specific superhero. So, I was happy that RE8's bonke...

    Thank you for the heads-up. I haven't checked GP lately and I probably wouldn't have found this for a good while. Good lookin' out.

  • poobumbutt posted a message in the forum topic Ever stopped playing a game because you just plain sucked at it?. on the General Discussion board

    I absolutely started the Bloody Palace in DMCV with the intention of grinding my way through eventually. But I discovered that despite what the main game would have me believe, I was not very good at...

    I feel like I just got run over by a car, but also like I got dunked in ice water? Boy, THIS is gonna take a minute to process. I guess this is the price I pay for waiting until Saturday to listen to...

    @dasakamov: This. I'm the "download a bunch of videos once a week" type, so I'm probably missing some content every once in a while, but I'm still perfectly happy with premium as is.That sucks if it i...

  • poobumbutt posted a message in the forum topic Many love Hitman games today, but I can't get into it. BUT I love stealth. What makes it so good for everyone else.. on the General Discussion board

    @topcyclist: Perfectly understandable. Usually I'm not the type of person who likes replaying levels to "scrape" all the content out, so I get where you're coming from.

  • poobumbutt posted a message in the forum topic Many love Hitman games today, but I can't get into it. BUT I love stealth. What makes it so good for everyone else.. on the General Discussion board

    For me, the thing I like about Hitman is also the thing that sometimes intimidates me into not playing it and doing something else. Starting a new mission and seeing 400 objectives, some as big and i...

  • poobumbutt posted a message on the post Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic - Part 01.

    Ever since I had the big, cool twist of this game spoiled for me, I've never had the drive to actually finish it. Oh, well. The Vinny/Alex Combo is top tier, so (maybe) I'll experience this game and i...

    I can't get enough of the scene of the Soda-Monkey walking up and Dan's reaction. This must be sixth time since this was posted that I've went back and watched it. What a good game/video series.

  • poobumbutt posted a message on the post Breakfast 'n Brad: Watch Dogs Legion.

    Here's hoping this stream inspires some drive in this game for me. I don't know what it is exactly, but I can't really get into this game. It's procgenerated characters, yet so far as I've played, it ...
