Finally! I’ve been requesting a Rorie rpg feature on so many GB surveys over the years. Please make this a regular thing.

As a fan of the previous metro games I’m really liking what I’m playing so far of this game. I’m a ways into the second hub area and the combat picks up now that I’ve got a bigger selection of weapons to choose from.

In regards to the American-sounding character, he’s supposed to be an American and the game gives a reason for his appearance early on that Alex must’ve missed. I initially wanted Dan to do the quick look as he’s played the previous games but then I remembered that his memory is terrible and he likely wouldn’t provide any beneficial, story insight into this quick look.

It is definitely a Metro-ass Metro game though so if the others didn’t click for you, neither will this.

As a big fan of the series since the beginning I would say to avoid 0. The story is bad, the two character set up is clunky, the limited equipment slots mixed in with no storage box is infuriating, and the environment is boring.

Brad’s gonna be disappointed in RE7 if he wants a continuation of existing RE characters. It’s pretty much nonexistent aside from a cameo at the end and the shortish ‘Not a Hero’ dlc featuring said cameo character. No real RE lore either. It could’ve easily been a non-RE game.

Also agree that the environments get worse as the game goes on, to the point where you play through a boring and lengthy tanker area twice, back-to-back. I wasn’t that big on the first person perspective and slow movement speed either, both of which are the result of it being a VR game.

On a related note, while I’m currently taking a break from the RE2 Remake (8 playthroughs so far) I likewise decided to play through Code Veronica and went with the ps4 version. The ps3 and ps4 versions have their pros and cons but the biggest negative is the updated lighting system of the ps3 one, making the game too damn dark in some areas.

That being said, man I’d forgotten how baaaaaad the VO and writing is in Code Veronica. It’s RE at possibly it’s most campy and I’m digging it. Im starting to feel those hooks sink in, reminding me why I played all these games in the series (until 6) over and over and over. Hell, if I’m still feeling the burn I might retry 6 with the ps4 version. Heard there were some decent improvements made with that port.

Possible MGScanlon type franchise play through with Abby and Dan? ResiDant Abby.

Regarding the hate for the patriots, Spygate was 100% cheating that for years greatly helped build their dynasty. Hell, when the Broncos hired the patriots offensive coordinator as head coach he got caught doing the same thing.

There’s also been all the rule changes that make it easier for quarterbacks like Brady to stay in the game and succeed: can’t hit low in the pocket, can’t hit high, tuck rule, etc.

The patriots also happen to be in one of, if not the least competitive division in football, guaranteeing a playoff birth and possible home field advantage and first round bye. They can literally win their division with an 8-8 record almost every year.

The refs also tend to throw more flags in the patriots favor. I don’t think it’s rigged but the patriots always get more breaks from the refs than their opponents.

Lastly, similar to Dan, the patriots have ‘deal with the devil’ type of luck which is aggravating to a lot of people.

@subwayd: I decided to go back to Andromeda earlier this month and found myself enjoying it, aside from still being a bit wonky. Most of the cringey dialog is in that first 10 hour mark. After that it’s servicable and the combat is pretty fun once you start leveling up skills significantly.

I figured Anthem wouldn’t be for me but this video further enforced that belief. I didn’t expect it to be so much of a Destiny also-ran in so many ways. Looks like I’ll be doing a third play thorough of DA:I while waiting for the next DA.

I know Rorie can get to some people but when he’s on, he’s fire.

When I read “sexual magic” I was reminded of the orgasm gun from Orgasmo.
