    I just finished Skyward Sword (having never played it before) and I regret paying $60 - only because it reinforces Nintendo's practice of overpriced re-releases.I enjoyed the game, but they really di...

    Quick Looks are what brought me to Giant Bomb originally. I guess those aren't making the right numbers go up anymore? Seems weird for them to seemingly no longer be a priority.Over the last couple ye...

    @nevergameover: LOL what thousands? The most popular texture mod for ME1 is the product of one person with some tool support from a few others. All told, it's maybe a couple dozen creators involved if...

    @humanity: I've enjoyed plenty of CRPGs; it was a bad RPG and better as a shooter with light RPG mechanics. There wasn't enough distinction between the items to makes those choices meaningful. It fool...

  • sweetz posted a message on the post Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

    I'm a huge Mass Effect fan, but I already wrote this off when I found out they did nothing to the uncharted worlds and equipment (pointless busywork of getting drops and swapping item N for item N+1) ...

    Well, that's unfortunate :( I let my sub lapse a couple months ago because I got "off cycle" with the sales and was waiting for the next sale, but apart from video streaming services, GB is the only n...

    I was watching this with headphones and when Jeff aimed at the "button door", I distinctly thought that beeping was coming from behind - and lo and behold. I don't think I've ever been that well con...

    Alright I thought had let this go, but with Nier coming back up, the continued mispronunciation of "automata" bugs me so much.It's pronounced aw-tom-uh-ta, the same as you would say the word automato...

    The book is voiced by Liam O'Brien who does all kinds of voice work but for me is most recognizable as War from Darksiders or Asura in Asura's wrath. I think his voice is fantastic

    I can't believe they're putting out Skyward Sword on the Switch before simply porting Wind Waker HD. Nintendo is ridiculous.
