• TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic What do you find most attractive in a partner?. on the Off-Topic board

    I think I used to date people for bad reasons--the feeling that it's bad to be single, loneliness, etc. As someone similarly thinking about dating again and reflecting on what I'm actually looking fo...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Ghost of Tsushima State of Play. on the Ghost of Tsushima board

    I think the reason they started with the cool "follow the wind" GPS is because that's the only notable thing Ghost of Tsushima's got going for it. Not to bash too hard based on one video, but somethin...

    I can only imagine what that intro bit would've been like with Dan still here *shudders*.

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Quaren-titles: Pile of Shame. on the Off-Topic board

    I got Xbox Gamepass on PC and went from wishing I was playing more games to drowning in stuff to finish. I keep getting halfway through something and then finding another game that really grabs me. So...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message on the post 630: NPCs Are Here.

    The episode description says they talk about finishing FF7; do I need to worry about spoilers for any plot changes from the original game or nah?

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Gears Tactics. on the Gears Tactics board

    Big fan of squad tactics games, and since I have gamepass for PC I'm gonna try it regardless of reviews or lack of coverage.That said, I'm surprised at how optimistic some people sound talking about ...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic DOOM Eternal Impressions Thread. on the Doom Eternal board

    I'm about 4 or 5 levels in, loving the game so far. Since most of the good stuff is that same, delicious murder-romping from 2016, though, I'll stick to critiques.Cons: The world and story feel a litt...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message in the forum topic Which did you prefer?: Resident Evil 7 or REmake2?. on the Resident Evil board

    2 is probably a better game, but I give all the props to 7 for being such an out-of-nowhere hit. That game was at DOOM 2016 levels of quality vs expectations, warts and all.

    @silan: Ah, glad to see that UI stuff can be rearranged quite a bit, thanks.UI options expanding has been one of my favourite QoL improvements this gen, especially console stuff finally getting FOV sl...

    I personally haven't been affected much (beyond some mild shortages at supermarkets). I actually work in mail so its actually maybe a little more volume than usual. They're telling all of us that you...

  • TheFlamingo352 posted a message on the post Gettin' Special w/Jeff Gerstmann.

    @tietuesday: My favourite part is how the timer ticks down at a variable rate, but that's a strong 2nd. I'd like to imagine this is the canonical home of Tall Mario.

  • 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...

    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 Which last gen game would you most like to see on the Switch?. on the Nintendo Switch 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...
