• Subscryber posted a message in the forum topic Which controller should I buy?. on the General Discussion board

    Going to throw my hat in with the people saying the DualSense is not recommended. When I first got it, it felt like an amazing controller, but using it for a couple of months, I have found it to be on...

  • Subscryber posted a message in the forum topic Do music lyrics NEED to rhyme?. on the Off-Topic board

    @onemanarmyy: But that chorus does rhyme. Paradise and ride are slant rhymes, and it's actually easy to get away with slant rhymes in a song, because what's emphasized is the sustained vowel sound, "e...

    @viralrain: Yeah, the story is actually really great, and is pretty nuanced, exploring a lot of different elements while avoiding being hamfisted about it. The setting is also really interesting, uniq...

  • Subscryber posted a message in the forum topic Indie Game of the Week 200: CrossCode. on the CrossCode board

    I never had to grind once in this game (and I did not do many side quests at all, I never do side quests in these kind of games). And I liked the puzzles. Platforming was almost entirely optional for ...

  • Subscryber posted a message in the forum topic Dissapointed by PS5 noise. on the PlayStation 5 board

    It's the disc drive. It spins up randomly for no apparent reason. Very common. It's not the fan. Sony actually has a bizarre fix for it on their troubleshooting page for it, where they ask you to put ...

  • Subscryber posted a message on the post Episode 290.

    I was pretty skeptical of the criticism. But Vinny and crew are right. Cyberpunk 2077 is just not that good. It's a mess that steps all over itself. Very unfinished. Menus are a mess, tedious to use. ...

    Awesome! I actually think it's really bold of someone like St. Vincent to come on a show like this and act like a normal person, seemingly not caring about maintaining the mystique of being a rock sta...

    I cannot find any actual verifiable information on why Merritt K is a bad person, just one Twitter thread where there's no receipts, and even then, it sounds more like, "Merritt K was mean to me" rath...

  • Subscryber posted a message on the post Spiritfarer.

    This game is like Animal Crossing but actually good. The animation and writing are top-notch. If you can't tell, I really do not like these types of games, but the presentation is so good that this ju...

  • Subscryber posted a message on the post Paper Mario: The Origami King.

    This game is *fine*.Everything about it feels very safe. And while the writing is clever, it's clever in a relentlessly-self-referential way that wore thin pretty fast for me. Finding the toads isn't ...

    I thought TLOU2 was compelling, in that it kept me engaged and coming back. But in the end, when I thought about everything that happened, how the characters developed, where the story went, I felt ma...
