    As a follow up, I did buy the game and I'm getting around to playing it now. Put about 8 hours in it (and restarted once after about 2 hours in since I felt I made too many mistakes and wanted to star...

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post Ranking of Fighters 0013: Fighters Destiny and BIO F.R.E.A.K.S..

    Hmm. Bio Freaks doesn't seem that aggressively bad to me. Like I guess it's not very balanced, but it still seems kind of fun. I never played it, but from what I saw, I'd much sooner play it than M...

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post Game Tapes 07: Stroke It.

    I don't know why @brad thought the original version of Ori being desisted was notable. The Definitive Edition is the same game with a few improvements and a new area, without making any cuts or object...

    Same price on Humble Bundle store right now. I'm tempted. I could kind of go for a chill exploration game and having my expectations set low will surely help, right?I've never really played a sandbox ...

    Yeesh that Mario Kart discussion. If it wasn't a Nintendo game, none of them would ever accept "it's always been a part of the game" as an excuse for a bad mechanic.

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post Far Cry 5 Review.

    I couldn't tell you any of the finer details of either Far Cry 3 and 4's story other than you gotta kill the bad guys. Open world games in general aren't exactly well suited to having a narrative foc...

  • Sweetz posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Episode 148.

    Listing to them talk about Sea of Thieves, I don't understand how that game came out without AI controlled ships. I mean it's a pirate game where you don't seem to do much actual piracy. Having rand...

  • Sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Is the story good enough to keep playing? (early game spoilers, NO LATE GAME SPOILERS PLEASE). on the NieR:Automata board

    I'd say no.The surface-level story isn't particularly good. It's a lot of nonsense that apparently relies on the convoluted backstories of the original Nier and Drakengard to try to piece together wit...

  • Sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Which game would you like to see get the "shot for shot" remake treatment?. on the General Discussion board

    All of the PS2-era Ace Combat games. I'd be happy to play them even just as an up-resed HD collection and not full graphical overhauls. The genre is all but dead, so I've been missing them.Tomb Raid...
