    This has been a year of older albums for me, so I really can only think of two from this year:Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside DownThe other three that have really captivated me t...

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic What is that bit of incidental/background music from a video game that just randomly pops into your head all the time?. on the General Discussion board

    I get the theremin from DOOM '16's "BFG Division" in my head a lot. Just so, so good. I mean, the whole track is insane, but that bit in particular is really catchy.

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic Skyrim VR Impressions. on the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim board

    As someone who never really got into Skyrim all that much, I'm really excited to pick this up. The very idea of playing a game like this in VR is irresistible to me. I do wish PSVR was getting Fallou...

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic Final "Bosses". on the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus board

    I died so many times before I found the damn tunnel system... at that point it was fairly simple, since the robot AI never seemed quite sure how to deal with me being in there. (a common theme throug...

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic New Overwatch Support Hero: Moira. on the Overwatch board

    I really like Moira's hurty orb. Getting it into a small area where it can bounce in place is surprisingly devastating. It's also a good time to play as her, as it seems a lot of players don't know ho...

    Regarding the glasses thing: They absolutely work with glasses, you just have to be careful/get third-party lens guards. I have scratches on my right headset lens because of my glasses. But there's ro...

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic How do you guys play your games?. on the General Discussion board

    Several at a time. I'm trying out a different way of playing games than I'm used to, in which the second I have to push myself to get back into a game, I stop and move on until I truly want to play i...

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic Your priorities in engine quality/performance.. on the General Discussion board

    Out of those, I make physics a priority, weirdly. Most games don't even have physics options, of course, but when they do, I'm pushing that sucker all the way up if I can, even if it means bumping oth...

  • ShaggE posted a message on the post Quick Look: Doom (Nintendo Switch).

    While the graphics are noticeably less detailed, I'm impressed that it still looks quite decent. (that motion blur, though... reminds me why I turn off motion blur right away in most games)Shame that...

  • ShaggE posted a message in the forum topic Dan Ryckert is in this game. on the L.A. Noire board

    When @rorie decides that the world is ready for Matt Rorie's Alpha Protocol 2: Beta Protocol, I hope Dan gets a role as a fellow spy. One with a taste for Calorie Mates and keeping people waiting.

    I admittedly haven't played COD since MW3 (I kinda want to catch up, though), but I never got the hate either. Are they the best, deepest shooters out there? Fuck no. But they do a singular style of ...

    Weirdly, it was The Next Day that got me to appreciate Bowie. But yeah, follow the big hits and their respective albums, and you can't go wrong.

    I wish more of the demo discs had the music videos tucked away on them. Jeff ragging on late-90s music videos gives me life.I also hope this series one day goes on to stuff like the PC Gamer discs. W...

    The audition was excellent, but the "death" of BJ was just too batshit insane to put in second place. If it had just been that scene, maybe, but it was the topper on a string of awesome moments. The ...
