    I'd love to clear out rocks from my garden beds for next spring. I only do a few every day, and I'd like to bump that up a bit through July. Kinda getting into gardening, insofar as a morbidly obese ...

    You know, there's probably a great idea to this for a blog post listing all the games announced over the last month or so, because... whoo boy, there are a lot of great-looking indie games and I'm su...

    Great stream. Glad to see these games get some coverage.

  • sparky_buzzsaw posted a message in the forum topic Should games reviews acknowledge poor studio conditions?. on the General Discussion board

    Raise hell. That's what a journalist's job is. And if your review isn't journalism, it's an opinion piece. Going further down that rabbit hole, if it's an opinion piece and your opinion isn't or doesn...

  • sparky_buzzsaw posted a message in the forum topic Encyclopedia of Sandwiches - Tell me Your Sandwich. on the Off-Topic board

    Even if no restaurant I've ever been to has served it the same way twice, I've never had a bad Cubano. If I'm making a sandwich for myself, my go to is this - ciabatta, garlic aioli (or just mayo), p...

  • sparky_buzzsaw posted a message in the forum topic What are some ideas for games that sound good on paper but didnt work when implemented. Or bad then turned out good.. on the General Discussion board

    I definitely agree with Destiny. On paper, that game should have hooked me for hundreds of hours, but the repetition, unapproachable end game mission design, and lack of in-game storytelling killed i...

    Solid showing. Nothing that's going to make me buy in the first year, but also a lot of stuff I'm definitely going to want to pick up eventually. Sexy box, too.

  • sparky_buzzsaw posted a message in the forum topic What's your opinion on Bungie removing content?. on the Destiny 2 board

    I want Bungie to do whatever the hell they want. Desiny 2 isn't really my thing, but I've gotta imagine if any developer knows long-term what they need to do with an online shooter(ish), it'd be Bungi...

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

    Dungeon Siege has always been the sodium free Saltine of the RPG world. It's technically fine and falls within the definition of exactly what it is supposed to be, but there is zero flavor to any of ...

    Love it. It's a crazy idea, but I think it's going to be neat to see what they can do with it.

  • sparky_buzzsaw posted a message in the forum topic Suggestions for one-handed gaming?. on the General Discussion board

    Aside from the obvious adventure game recommendations, puzzle games are a good route to go. If it's still available anywhere, Puzzle Agent was fantastic. Apart from that, Heroes of Might and Magic 3,...

    I'm pretty fond of the mods and Rorie. Was gonna come in and drop some snark like they're the collective stinky hairs of Satan's armpit, but nah, nothing but love for them this week.

  • sparky_buzzsaw posted a message on the post Ten Games I'd Like To Play This Year (2020 Edition).

    I really liked what I played of Outer Worlds. In a way, it reminded me a lot of the original Fallout, not in tone or setting or anything, but more because of the promise of what could be done in futu...

    Rorie playing more space sims would be fun, and I'd love for someone on the staff to play through the Genesis-era Shadowrun.

    I’m curious how some of the boss battles hold up, which were pretty broken in its initial release. There were also a ton of problems wit( its body physics, if I’m remembering correctly. Used to be bu...
