    I would say put off Red Dead and Witcher until after your deadline. Those games (especially RDR 2) are long and languid so trying to rush them will just make you frustrated. I would also scratch anyt...

    I was disappointed to hear this news as I still like the pomp of E3 and wanted to see how Sony and Microsoft go head to head. As far as if it is a smart move by Sony, I don't know. Someone mentioned ...

    @mikachops: Good story telling doesn't hinge on how memorable a movie is 30 years after the fact though. Character motivations, world consistency, pacing, character arcs make up good storytelling. Ris...

    @mikachops: The storytelling is atrocious in this movie compared to the good Star Wars; this compared to Empire is not even close. I do agree that most of the conversations around Star Wars is silly t...

    Digital PS4 games is the main reason I want back compat on PS5; with the amount of digital sales I have a huge backlog on PS4 now. It would be great to be able to toss out my PS3 because I can play m...

    I definitely see where your coming from. I think the amount of games one has to cover will influence how much effort you end up putting into talking about a bad or mediocre one. But a spectacularly b...

    Yup I now have more games on Epic than Steam, but I'm also not big on PC gaming and have a weaker machine. Still, all the free games have made me use my PC more and is making me think of just upgradi...

    If I'm not doing multiplayer with friends I usually play something without story that's re-playable: Enter the Gungeon, Binding of Issac, Hotline Miami, Luftrausers. Or a platformer like Mario or Eve...

    In light of what GOTY ended up being I found myself going back and re-listening to year's past GOTYs. I feel this might've been one of the worst years of this decade to get rid of all the smaller fun...

    Definitely Apex Legends. I haven't played it since season 2, but two friends and me went deep on it early in the year. I got all the trophies (except the two legendary body armor one) and had a blast...

  • SloppyDetective posted a message in the forum topic Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker - anyone care?. on the Off-Topic board

    Saw this the other day and thought it was quite a mess and really an unremarkable film. It's cramming two movies worth of plot into one and that makes scenes, problems, and revelations so brief that ...

    Very nice write up. I keep debating if I should try FE or not. I've never played one, but like strategy games, but find most Japanese writing (especially for longer RPG games) pretty insufferable. Do...
