Honestly surprised to see as much hate on the film as I'm seeing, I really enjoyed the hell out of it!

Not sure it necessarily told a good story, but I just enjoyed seeing some characters I love being portrayed and performed well in a live action setting.

Also just as a glimpse into this version of the MKverse, I think it's a lot of fun!

Could not give less of a fuck about Cole though, which obviously dampens things a bit, but I found it easy to look past and just appreciate the world and the characters.

Dig the new look mostly! I'm finding myself missing what little colour was in the old one, though.

Only thing I'm wrestling with at the moment is browsing shows is a lot less convenient on the redesign. I'll often come to Giant Bomb not knowing what I wanna watch, and making the decision feels a bit more cumbersome now than it did before.
It'd be nice to be able to have all the shows accessible on a single page - at least an option for it maybe?

Good stuff otherwise, though!

I might grab this. A trailer for it caught my eye a while back. I actually never played the original but it looks sharp and fun and I like the perspective.

Do it man, it looks awesome.
A lot of the art and animations have been redone without letting go of the original designs. Got that whole neo-retro 16-bit-looking, except more pixels and colours, running at a higher framerate.

In a world where twin-stick controls are a standard, it might take a bit of getting used to for peeps who haven't played it before, but in a rewarding way, more than in an obnoxious/dated kinda way I think.

Any 'bombers play this back in the day?

My brother and I used to play it all the time. Definitely one of my favourites.

I'm honestly a bit blown away by the treatment of this particular remaster.

A considerable amount of work has gone into updating the look and feel of the game to fit modern standards, and the new characters actually add some very meaningful new variations on the game's mechanics.

Feels like whoever made this genuinely cared about it, and I would like to see more of this kind of remaster than the bad kind.

Never mind the fact that it's just a straight up hectic, fun game, with genuinely unique mechanics, in a surreally imaginative setting.

$20 is maybe a bit much (25% off at the moment, $15 might still be pushing it) if you're the kind of person who values playtime a lot, if you're willing to look past that, I definitely think it's worth the asking price.

I'm actually having a generally positive experience with Mass Effect: Andromeda.
I find it a lot easier to swallow if I actively ignore most of the story stuff and just treat it like I'm a dude helping out some up-start colonies get on their feet.

Playing on normal the combat is really simple but I do find it satisfying. Might consider turning the difficulty up.

Will I play it again next time I revisit the ME series? Probably not, but for now I'm havin' a fun ride on it.

If you already own the game I don't know why you wouldn't want to experience it for yourself. I thought that was the whole point?

Well it's just a different way to enjoy a game. As a broad, abstract idea, I think the interactivity between the site peeps and the audience would be interesting and fun.
I think I'm romanticising the idea of a whole bunch of different people playing the same save/same character/whatever and talking about that specific state or that specific build.
I dunno man, I just think it'd be a neat, novel way to play video games and interact with a community.

In my mind that's a noble pursuit in and of itself, but like I said, I'm a huge hippie when it comes to this kinda stuff.

It's all about connectedness and finding new ways to connect with each other maaaan!

EDIT:

I wanted to come back to this post

I don't get it.

Why would you want to skip the beginning of a game? Is this so you can roleplay as the person who was playing the game?

Because I don't really think of it as "skipping the beginning of the game."

It's just that I already experienced the first part of the game, in a way that I already really enjoyed, and got a lot out of. I love the idea of being able to continue the "performance" that inspired my interest in the game in the first place. I want that to be a part of my game experience. I mean, it kind of already was.

Maybe I'm also just making a pretentious statement about the rigidity with which we enjoy our video games. I don't know anymore.

Again, it's just novel and interesting, and I think that's cool!

I'm an exclusively PC gamer, and also an idiot, so the console saves thing didn't even occur to me! That would obviously be a problem, and maybe the inconsistency of game save availability video-to-video would be confusing even if they did just do it for the PC games.


That could definitely be a cool idea if it's a very open game / highly creative game (obvious example: Kebal).

Haha nah, not quite so ridiculous!

There's definitely a lot of room within the idea to do at least some legitimately cool shit. For games that you can spec your character, it could be an interesting way to explore character builds you wouldn't have otherwise considered. Or it could also just be dumb fun to roll with a stupid character just to see what happens with it (or actually role-play said stupid character as an in-game fucking idiot).

Maybe I'm also thinking about the convenience-factor for entirely story-driven games.
Sometimes I'll decide early on in a QL that I'm not really interested in the game, so I'll keep watching, and then by the end of it I'm fully in, but don't necessarily want to trudge through 90 minutes of introductory gameplay to get to where I wanted to be to begin with.

I dunno. Like I said I'm not entirely sure what it is about it that appeals to me.

I think sometimes I just develop an attachment to the particular games that are started on the site. Like, sure I could just play the game myself and get up to the same point or whatever, but it wouldn't be the same game that I developed that attachment to. I know that probably sounds like a meaningless distinction to most of you. Maybe it's just because I'm kind of a hippie in this kinda way, but it's a distinction that I personally value! Like, just the idea of booting up someone else's save in a game to begin with can totally change the way you think about playing it, before you've even started. That's cool, right? Or am I just a weirdo?

It would definitely be more interesting for some games than others, but I think there's probably something neat in the idea. Moot point, though, I guess!

Sometimes when I watch a Quick Look, or a Playdate, or a UPF thing or whatever, after it finishes I really want to just pick the game up where the crew left it off.

I reckon there's something pretty rad about the idea of being able to continue playing a run that was started for the site.
Don't know why, but for whatever reason that appeals to me.

I get it's probably a lot of effort for pretty much no actual benefit to the GB staff, but a man can dream...

If that's how you enjoy playing them, then don't let anybody stop you!

The difference between the two MSI cards is that the more expensive one has an additional D-Sub output, and also has a "gaming mode" and "oc mode" which both have higher core clock speeds than the cheaper card.

Last I heard the EVGA card was having some issues, but they might have been fixed by now.
