• TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Div 2 is $3 today, and they've announced a shift to a seasonal model.. on the Tom Clancy's The Division 2 board

    Thanks for the heads up, me and my brother were waiting for a good sale to jump on. At 3$ it's a little surprising they're not just making it free, though (even just for a limited time)?

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Which dormant Capcom IP would you like to see get a AAA revival?. on the Capcom board

    I feel like Okami is the obvious answer, people have been howling for more of it for ages. But if they do another Ocarina of Time style game it'd probably feel kinda dated--they'd need to really have ...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message on the post Doom Eternal.

    One of the best parts of DOOM 2016 was its commitment to the self-serious bit. In contrast, I don't think I like those "It's a video game!" powerups all over the place, it's just 5% too schticky.Still...

    Obvious bathtub food: Pirate's Booty. Great taste, low density, can't lose.

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker - anyone care?. on the Off-Topic board

    I think Rise of Skywalker worked in a "mediocre action blockbuster" kind of way, in that it was never boring, and had some neat bits along the way.The most damning thing about it, though, is that a da...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Anyone watch The Mandalorian?. on the Off-Topic board

    I was a Star Wars megafan a lonnng time ago, so it's nice to see something feel more Expanded Universey out of Disney.I liked the general vibe of the show, but the whole quiet, helmeted protagonist sc...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Which last gen game would you most like to see on the Switch?. on the Nintendo Switch board

    Mario 3D World. I always preferred level-based Mario over 64's hub-roaming design.

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic My kinda annual "what's your favorite anime this year?" thread. on the Off-Topic board

    I'm not a huge anime fan, but I'll second the Carole and Tuesday recommendation. The soundtrack is super fun, the animation is good, and the story is short enough not to waste your time. Later episode...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Most Overlooked Game in GotY Discussions 2019. on the General Discussion board

    Most dark horses this year are in non-GB genres (Disco Elysium, Total War) so I won't be miffed if they don't get mentioned.What *will* irritate me is if Mario Maker 2 is on the top 10. That game's re...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Fighting Final Fantasy XII - Part 6: I Don't Like This Game, And It Breaks My Damn Heart!. on the Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age board

    I've played X and XIII, but never really touched this one. Really love how thorough these are, it's a fun(!) way to experience the entries I missed without being subjected to playing them."What ensue...

    Yeah, Blizzard has pulled out to a strong lead here. I'll put side bets on Anthem and Randy getting in at 2nd and 3rd, but thoses messes feel like they happened years ago now.Edit- Damn I already forg...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic DOOM music, but it's Surf Rock. on the Off-Topic board

    Yeah I've thought the ost sounded a bit surf-y, super cool arrangements. If we wanna be sticklers, I'd say the second (E1M4) gets a little hard to parse/muddy when all the guitars are going fullspeed...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Giant Bomb Reviews in 2019. on the General Discussion board

    A lot of people seem to be saying that written reviews are objectively inferior because you can learn more about a game from play footage, but that's assuming reviews only serve one purpose: helping d...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Austin Walker stepping down from editorial position at Waypoint. on the General Discussion board

    Man, I was always lukewarm on Waypoint but a lot of those guys are great, so I hope they find continued work when it (inevitably, I think) shuts down.Austin was probably my favourite addition to GB ev...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Arkham Knight Endgame Spoilers: About the Joker Infection. on the Batman: Arkham Knight board

    I just beat it too, and the line between the Joker toxin's effects and the Scarecrow toxin's effects were very confusing. I'd like to believe that the ending implies Batman overcame Scarecrow's toxin,...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message on the post Atomicrops (09/11/2019).

    Those guns look extremely unfun to shoot. No camera shake, flat animation, gunshots that sound like slime, no environmental effects like shells or backblast. Yuck.
