    I don't think there's any way to make traversal for character that can freely fly fun.Think about traversal in Spiderman, you're dodging buildings, trying to find a sort of optimal path, boosting off ...

  • sweetz posted a message on the post Bugsnax.

    The biggest question I had after Brad's unfinished is whether the "snackification" of the people (Grumpuses, whatever) had any bearing on the gameplay or story development. Seems like it doesn't aff...

    Regarding VR: Several of my friends got Oculus Rifts when they went on sale, so I got to try one out. I wear glasses and cannot wear contacts. The headset was exceptionally uncomfortable wearing over ...

  • sweetz posted a message on the post The Cooling Springs of Astro's Playroom.

    @brad: Might be worth putting that as a note on the video. Just a nice little "hey heads up, frame rate issues are capture related, not in game". Because I noticed is frequently dropping frames and t...

    My home isn't suitable for this, but I'm one of like 5 people who still goes into an office sized for 100+ people and I'm tempted to get this for use there. Ultimately though, without people to play...

    Ah man, Abby is legit funny. I wish her well in her career and continued safety on two wheels as a fellow motorcyclist.

    @bondfish: Right so basically you’re saying because you are willing to pay what’s you admit is an excessive amount for 3 mostly untouched old games, other people’s criticism of this collection is unwa...

  • sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Hate towards Mario 3D Allstars Unwarranted. on the Super Mario 3D All-Stars board

    @bondfish: This will never be discounted since Nintendo has guaranteed its scarcity. I mean that's what's especially disgusting. The limited time thing is purely to get people to pay $60 for 3 barebon...

  • sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Hate towards Mario 3D Allstars Unwarranted. on the Super Mario 3D All-Stars board

    The criticism is justified. When Activision of all companies puts out completely remade and well done collections of PS1 era Spyro and Crash games for $40, you know it's poor when you put out three ba...

    Hot Pursuit is my favorite of the modern era NFS games because: The handling model is ridiculously unrealistic and therefore fun. It's basically Ridge Racer game where drifting every corner is faster...

  • sweetz posted a message on the post Super Mario 3D All-Stars.

    More than anything what bugs me about this is the limited time aspect. This is how Nintendo gets people to pay $60 for 3 lackluster ports/emulations: FOMO. Otherwise, anyone sensible would just wait...

  • sweetz posted a message in the forum topic Was Giantbomb part of the CNET Sale?. on the General Discussion board

    They've done a good job given the situation, but last few months have demonstrated to me that Giant Bomb needs a studio and people being physically together to be GB. Opinions may differ, that's min...

    It pains me that this will probably still sell well because of the limited time thing. Nintendo knows exactly what they are doing, but it’s disgusting. $60 for 3 barebones ports.I already felt pretty ...

    The fruit in Fall Guys has intentional seams modeled into them to suggesting that they are inflatables and not real fruit. So the debate continues. I thought this was a cool little detail to make them...

    I got this on sale and just just finished it. I enjoyed it, but definitely thought it was a bit over hyped. That said, I tend to approach games from a more "mechanical" perspective; can't say I've eve...
