• TheSquarePear posted a message on the post Alex Navarro's Top 11 Games of 2019.

    I can totally relate to the first paragraph. I also had almost a year's "break" from video games starting 2018 where nothing would grab me so I didn't play anything for more than 30 minutes at a time....

  • TheSquarePear posted a message in the forum topic Most Disappointing Game of the Decade?. on the General Discussion board

    Portal 2 or Ryse.None of them are bad games (Portal 2 was good but always felt a little "off" to me) but they were disappointing as the last story-driven singleplayer games from once great studios bef...

    This might sound condescending but most of the mechanics are inspired by astronomy and physics and it's totally fair if that doesn't interest/grab some people.The concepts for the mechanics are not al...

    I only know a couple of those bands but any music list with SLAYER, Alice Cooper and Slipknot gets double horns!

  • TheSquarePear posted a message in the forum topic 2020 Thoughts on Giant Bomb. on the General Discussion board

    Video game coverage went to a weird place (and not necessarily for the better) over the last decade due to Twitch, Youtube and Twitter. It's probably going to get even weirder but Giant Bomb has alway...

    It's probably been 10 years since I played but I think EVE University is still kicking around. Try to join their chat ingame and you should find lots of help there.I'm not sure any of the Giant Bomb s...

    I've only listened to 45 minutes so far but I think I found your song:Loading Video...I hope I can follow this one because the others went way over my head. Anyways, it's really awesome that you put s...

    Great job putting this together!I wish there were enough written reviews this year that a review data dump might be interesting because the one I read once upon a time was quite informative. Maybe it ...

    I tried getting fired once already, Abby.I wouldn't recommend it but things turned out OK eventually.I also think most of these videos are pretty funny so thanks for making them.

  • TheSquarePear posted a message on the post Jeff Bakalar's Top 10 Pinball Machines as of 2019.

    My favorite pinball table (that I've only played in Pinball Arcade) is Medieval Madness.It's pretty much the closest you could get to an Iron Maiden table but I guess they've actually made an actual I...

  • TheSquarePear posted a message on the post Pat Baer's Top 10 Games of 2019.

    That official Judg(e)ment title without the "e" makes me really confused (and I had no idea you could spell it like that) so thanks for setting them straight, Pat :)Keep on being awesome!

  • TheSquarePear posted a message on the post Scott Benson's Top 10 Games of 2019.

    I appreciate Alex bringing the sensible food talk to the nightmare that is Giant Bomb employee diets. Food isn't necessarily so hard to understand (carbs, protein, fats) that you need a dietarian to f...

    Ben if you want another CRPG experience that isn't too clunky, you can buy KOTOR on your smartphone.Once you get used to the combat I'm guessing it might hit some of the same buttons Disco Elysium did...

    Hmm I think I know who the Goomba is supposed to be? SPOILER Awesome art as always but "Carl Bakalar" is hard to beat :)That Beatles article must have taken a ton of effort and it was a good read.
