    @cornfed40: I'll give that a shot, thanks. Not sure any new toys or abilities is going to fix this game for me, though; I also don't care for the level design. This probably just isn't for me, which...

    Went back and finally played through the entirety of Tales of Symphonia via it's PC port. Combat definitely is feeling it's age, and the low production values really undercut the writing during cutsc...

    It's to be expected, what with travel these days. Sad to see it go, but we got some real cool stuff out of this project, and I have to imagine he had a wonderful time throughout this whole endeavor....

    I bought some huge collection of Gold Box and various Gold Box-adjacent games from GOG years ago, which included the Ravenloft games; I've always meant to try them. For all the weirdness dubiousness ...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Baldur's Gate 3 - D&D Live 2020 Demo Gameplay. on the Baldur's Gate 3 board

    I'm not going to write the game off before playing it, but the amount of Original Sin in this is worrying. I wasn't exactly excited to hear Larian was developing this in the first place, as I haven't...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Measure Twice, Cut Once. on the Hardspace: Shipbreaker Forum board

    Yeah I watched a video the devs put out recently and it seemed neat. I've definitely enjoyed quite a few of the more...mundane gaming experiences out there (American Truck Sim and Viscera Cleanup Det...

    @arbitrarywater said:Aside from Might and Magic X, (which I liked in spite of its shoestring budget and rough edges) I can't really think of any other big ones.I seem to remember one of the mods (fis...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Sony's big PlayStation reveal event. on the PlayStation 5 board

    I don't know what games they'll show, but I think we'll see some actual gameplay; it feels like too good of an opportunity for them to pass up, considering Microsoft's recent misstep.

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic The Wheel of Dubious RPGs Episode 006: Dungeon Siege III. on the Dungeon Siege III board

    I had forgotten just how long it takes to unlock abilities in that game; I remember having fun summoning pillars of fire and doing some FF Dragoon-esque Jumps around the battlefield as Anjali, but I g...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Kill la Kill: The anime that got me into anime. on the Anime board

    This show got me back into anime after some years of losing interest in it, so I'll always be very fond of it. It is my favorite anime; one of my favorite tv shows period. That being said, I've found ...

    This thread has been a great reminder of why I like this community so much, and why it's the only online community I've ever really engaged with. Thanks to everyone who has shared their experiences,...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Reflecting on Current Events - Mafia 3 and Raging Against The Machine. on the General Discussion board

    Interesting read. There's a lot here, but I haven't played the game myself so I'm not going to really address anything in a meaningful way so as not to look the fool. What I will say is that as some...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Worst double-jump in the history of gaming?. on the Middle-earth: Shadow of War board

    Knack had a particularly heinous double jump. And normal jump, for that matter. So many platforms were just too high to get over with a normal jump, so you had to use the double almost all the time...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Jan's Playing Trails! Any questions?/An Intro. on the General Discussion board

    @xbob42: There isn't much left for him to do in the main game, but he plans on doing the DLC, which might be a few episodes in of itself. That being said, he mentioned in the most recent episode that...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Jan's Playing Trails! Any questions?/An Intro. on the General Discussion board

    @xbob42: I think he's just focusing on beating Bloodborne before he dives into anything else in a big way. Doing full playthroughs of multiple games at the same time is a good way to make sure you fin...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Wheel of Dubious RPGs Episode 005: Nox. on the Nox board

    I think the idea of Nox being a failed evolutionary branch of the genre is really interesting; now I can't help but wonder what this style of game would be like if Nox had lit the world on fire inste...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic A positive thread about what you're currently playing. on the General Discussion board

    Finally got around to playing Bloodborne, and I can't say I loved it. I think that game nails the combat in a way none of their other Souls games do (including DS3, which came after), but in terms of...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Should I start with the first game?. on the The Evil Within 2 board

    I haven't played the second game yet, but I thought the negative reaction to the first game was wildly overblown. I guess I understand if one came to it expecting it to be the next RE4, but that's u...

  • Relkin posted a message in the forum topic Jan's Playing Trails! Any questions?/An Intro. on the General Discussion board

    As someone who just started getting into these myself (I'm currently in the second chapter of SC), I'm equal parts excited and worried about this upcoming stream. GB has a tendency to button though d...

    Sorry to see this one go; some of those conversations were gold. This will likely be one of but a few games that I want to play more after seeing you tackle it. Mayhap I'll download it, methinks.I r...
