• TheRealTurk posted a message in the forum topic They're patching in a bunch of stuff that might make this game more playable. on the Wolfenstein: Youngblood board

    While those are things that should have been fixed, I think at this point it's kind of polishing a turd. Unless they are also re-working the level design or adding in better story and characters, I do...

    I think it would have been a lot better received if they'd just called it something else.It's a good game, but it isn't a very good Doom game, if that makes any sense. I feel the same way about Diabl...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message in the forum topic Which game have you played for the longest period of time?. on the General Discussion board

    Probably LOTRO, although I haven't played it in several years due to each expansion making the game progressively much worse.Recently, it's Witcher 3 without a close second.

  • TheRealTurk posted a message in the forum topic My First Final Fantasy; Or Friendship in the face of Darkness.. on the Final Fantasy XV board

    For me FFXV is kind of Jekyll and Hyde kind of thing. On the one hand, the story is a complete and total mess that feels like two completely separate stories that were grafted together in a nearly inc...

    @flstyle: I am glad I swapped Allison for van Dijk. I agonized over that choice a bit, but I’m glad I made it.In other news, the Premier League Fantasy rules continue to confound me. How did they deci...

    Alright. I managed to complete my team just in time for the deadline. Like every year, I (a) had grand plans of creating the perfect Premier League Moneyball system and then waited until the last minu...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message on the post Paris Street Sweeping.

    Yep. This was the exact level I stopped at. One of the key's fell into the geometry of the level after I killed the big mech thing. The only way to fix it was to reload, which, of course, started me ...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message on the post Nefarious Apes with Patrick and Ben.

    Sekiro is maybe the most disappointing game I've played in a long, long time. I can't remember a game where I have a more visceral dislike of the systems and world design. It exists in this awful midd...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message on the post 595: It's Always the Cute Monks.

    I was almost willing to finish Youngblood until I went on one of the Brother missions and had one of the commander keys fall through the geometry of the level. It wouldn't respawn unless I restarted t...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message on the post Bloodstained - Part 03.

    @indigozeal said:Back in the day, there was a discussion in Roger Ebert's column about whether the jump in Speed was possible. The conclusion was "yes," but I'm sure further vital bus research has be...

    Man, between this and Youngblood, Bethesda is trying really hard to kill the Wolfenstein IP.

  • TheRealTurk posted a message in the forum topic Defend a Maligned Game. on the General Discussion board

    Two Worlds. I'm partial to any game where you can (a) kill everything on the map and (b) completely break the systems to become vastly overpowered. This game has both. You can literally depopulate th...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message on the post Super Nintendo 64 Super Stream!.

    I'm probably one of the few people who really doesn't care for Star Fox 64. The soundtrack sucks and I think it was a major mistake to move away from the garblespeak of the first one. The voice actin...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message in the forum topic Who's your favorite reviewer these days?. on the General Discussion board

    I dunno. The written review seems to be mostly on the way out and I generally don't pay much attention to who writes the review, since the churn rate seems to be pretty high.Having said that, I usuall...

    I'm actually playing through Pillars 1 right now. Like you, I think it's probably the "best" CRPG to come out in a long, long time. That said, I think part of the divisiveness might be due to some of...
