    Omega v Moxley was really great. I really didn't think they would ever use the bat and broom but they did and it got crazier from there.Opener was a great match. Santana and Ortiz are really funny and...

    There is definitely evil stuff you can do as Renegade Shepard. But it is the binary duality some get at I think that makes it feel rote. The best RPG developers at dodging that and providing much m...

    @nateandrews: You described exactly how I feel. It is pleasing in the moment to have all those options but afterwards when you look back you realize it all becomes arbitrary. The cramped maps hurt it ...

    @mooseymcman: As far as The Witcher, I would say 1 and especially 2 also have great writing and quests with a much lesser budget than 3.3 deserves all the praise it gets but i think 2 is not that far ...

    I definitely feel the same way as you about both New Vegas and Outerworlds.I am a big RPG guy but I think Obsidian has always gotten too much hype for my tastes. Their games are good but I've never...

    Good episode of Dynamite. I was encouraged by the Women's tag match. While I think the roster has been lackluster past a couple names, I think everyone in the match was good and promising. I really li...

    I have been avoiding talk but from the bits I've gleamed, if the biggest issue is it's slower paced with a lot of traveling and journey feeling I think I'll like it. I like games like Witcher 3, RDR 2...

    The game is pretty fun but I also think overblown in some of the hype.Yes it looks and runs better than the usual Bethesda type games but it also is very cramped. I'm cool with paired down but there's...
