    Like you said, Mario and Zelda knocked it out of the park last year. Nintendo's earned the right to a slow year. I don't know how you expected 2018 to be even better. Meanwhile the Switch has become t...

    I didn't mind 3 either, but I played it after the critics had weighed in and it may have benefited from lowered expectations. I loved Black Flag and Origins and enjoyed Syndicate quite a bit. Not ha...

    Talk to your doctor, maybe he might prescribe something for focus, rather than an anti-depressant.I was briefly on one of each, but they never really helped me. I'm not in contact with that doctor any...

  • Tom_omb posted a message on the post Quick Look: We Happy Few.

    I like the aesthetic and setting, story could go either way. Dan's criticisms feel so nitpicky and we don't really get a good look at how he doesn't like the gameplay in this quicklook. There's proba...

  • Tom_omb posted a message in the forum topic Do you care about other people opinions?. on the General Discussion board

    When I was 11 I was wondering if I should get a PS or N64. A friend at the time essentially tried to tell me Mario was for babies. I got the N64, played Mario, and it changed the way I played and view...

    I generally prefer Pepsi over Coke, but I won't raise a stink if Coke is the only option. If I'm at, say, a 711 and there's options I'd take a chocolate milk, iced tea or Jones/Stewarts/Boylan soda ov...
