    @tds418: As a Wii-U owner I watched as third party completely abandoned that console then Nintendo themselves jumped ship. Switch had a strong first year in terms of software but that was largely due ...

    @efesell: It's sold well and had a great first year but since then there has been very little in terms of software. Some re-released Wii-U games, Tennis a new Smash Bros. Aside from Travis Strikes Bac...

    So at what point can we say that the Switch has been a major disappointment?

    Chin up Alex, when viewed against the gamut of human history this is probably the greatest time to be alive.

  • TwitterBeef posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2018: Day Five Deliberations.

    Listening to Dan trash Red Dead earlier in the year I decided I wasn't going to watch GOTY. Looking at the list I'm very glad I didn't. Putting the game in the Most disappointing category is just mad...

    @sharbok: I really disliked the controls for the first four or five hours of God Of War but it ended up being maybe me favourite game of the year. There are a number of other games that I have not enj...

    I'm now in Chapter 6 and just as riveted as I have been since the get go but listening and reflecting on Dan's criticisms I think he has some valid points.... RDR 2 offers you the illusion of freedom ...

  • TwitterBeef posted a message on the post Episode 182.

    Wow, it's really hard reconciling these negative comments about RDR 2 with my own experiences of the game. I have had to tear myself away from it at the end of each session for the last three weeks. I...

  • TwitterBeef posted a message on the post 557: Piranha Plant Did Nothing Wrong.

    I appreciate that it is part of the philosophy behind Giant Bomb but the way in which games can be so easily dismissed early on in the experience is really problematic when it comes to giving a more w...

    For those looking to avoid spoilers a couple of cool early missions and sidequests get discussed that are probably better off as a surprise.

  • TwitterBeef posted a message on the post Episode 179.

    @basanakin: No, the usual suspects were just probably annoyed that they couldn't confect some outrage over the treatment of race or gender in the game this time so they had to settle for this.

    Considering the only evidence people have of poor working conditions at Rockstar on RDR2 is an ambiguous comment in an interview and a bunch of hearsay I would have thought that Alex's discussion of ...

    From a critical and popular standpoint Jeff is an outlier, from memory he dislikes RDR, The Last of Us, Resident Evil 4, Dark Souls, Breath of the Wild, The Witcher 3. In the eyes of the vast majority...

    I agree with Jeff but the way he went about things here was petulant and needlessly confrontational.

    @giovanni: Sure, but when the 'argument' increasingly is becoming; "I bounced off it" or "that game is garbage" then I'm not sure how much I wan't to listen to that.

    I understand the philosophy of the GB staff that they only finish the games they want to but I feel as if this approach has led to a point where I no longer trust or respect their opinion on games. Th...
