• shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Are you ready for next gen consoles?. on the General Discussion board

    Hardware is something I don't really care about, I care about games. I understand the /need/ for better hardware, but all your 8k billion FPS talk isn't why I play games. They can look bad and occasi...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic What franchise cross over would get you to play a Musou game?. on the Musou board

    At this point I have no faith in Koei to do right by any Musou game. Though I still want Looney Toons Warriors.

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Matt Rorie's Alpha Protocol delisted from Steam. on the Alpha Protocol board

    This game is great if you want to roleplay as douche, not so great if you want to be a blank slate. I kinda admire the game's audacity and jank to an extent and I believe it has earned its cult statu...

    I don't like analog swinging and yeah, pretty much agree with everything you said. You can make a good read, but there's too much randomness.

    @notnert427: Y'know, I'd prefer not to argue about socio-economics here. I mention Capitalism because it's designed /not/ to give workers power. It's designed to please those at the top. It's hard for...

    Capitalism, misogyny, society that loves egomanicial people...I mean, take your pick...These things are problems in every industry and go beyond video games.

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Voice acting, Claptrap, and Randy Pitchford. on the General Discussion board

    I was fine moving on after Gearbox. But when my former boss starts mouthing off about various aspects of my employment including “how highly compensated” I was and how “generous” he is, I feel obligat...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Rage 2 won't have 4k on enhanced consoles, does that matter to you?. on the Rage 2 board

    1080p 60fps should've been what this console generation targeted all along, so this is great news. Making games work at 4k is okay I guess, I can see it sucking if you invested all that money into it...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Current State of Fallout 76 from those who are playing it. on the Fallout 76 board

    I like the idea of an open world online shooter, but I really would strongly recommend against playing this. There needs to be more character to the world, more sense of awe, or at the very least a g...

    When I first saw it I was like 'this is Ride to Hell meets Last of Us' it looks more interesting than that though.

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic This game didn't age well. on the Medal of Honor: Frontline board

    A lot of console games age poorly...at least ones that require precision. I can play Final Fantasy games from the PS1 era for example. Also, this thread is 4 years old....

    Walking SimulatorsI'm actually serious and I only call them Walking Simulators because we lack a term for exploration narrative driven games. Your interaction with them is piecing together the plot an...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Fighting with backlog and how can I enjoy games again ?. on the General Discussion board

    Burn every video game you own. Every console, every game, every memorabilia. Get rid of it. Nah, we get these kinds of threads every month or so it seems. Life is full of missed experiences, the best...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Will You Miss Loading Screens?. on the General Discussion board

    I want 1080p 60 fps on consoles as a baseline. I can take the loading, which will obviously be there no matter how fast of an SSD they claim to have. They can also talk up their 8k game (which I doub...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Anyone wonder if Mahardy might join Giantbomb in the future?. on the General Discussion board

    These kinds topics are always really bizarre to me. It's up to the man himself and GBE if they would consider him. We don't get a say, it's up to them. 'It would be nice though!' Sure, I guess, but we...

    This thing is on Switch now, so Bayonetta could be an option.

    @mightyduck: No problem. If you want a decent arcade racer that'll last you a few days, go for it on a deep discount I'd say. You will have to do some grinding or some skill challenges if you want to ...

  • shivermetimbers posted a message in the forum topic Has this improved since released?. on the The Crew 2 board

    I mean, they added more races and cars and that's about it. Summits from the first game are coming back on the 26th apparently, which is something of an end game thing I guess.The first game I feel i...
