• WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Should Giant Bomb keep doing reviews?. on the General Discussion board

    Reviews for ongoing games, multiplayer games, and "games-as-a-service" games seem more and more irrelevant. Those games are too prone to evolving (or devolving), so a written review tends to feel lik...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Your thoughts on Black Panther and where you rank it in the MCU (Spoilers). on the Off-Topic board

    I like how the OP explicitly asked people to rank BP in the MCU, yet people are going ahead and throwing non-MCU movies in. Lol.

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Here's what the endgame looks like. on the Monster Hunter: World board

    @hestilllives19: I think honestly that you kind of answered your own question there at the end. The point I was making was that when it comes down the quality, length and content depth/breadth of thes...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Here's what the endgame looks like. on the Monster Hunter: World board

    Ha. This game's end-game is no more present than Destiny 2's (hell, I'd say Destiny's is better by a long shot), yet everyone seems to be lapping this game up with nary a complaint. Such is life I s...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Ignorant criticisms of Bethesda need to stop. on the Fallout 4 board

    Yeah I don't know - I've tried nearly every Bethesda developed game in the Elder Scrolls-Fallout line. Every one in first person view has been a dumb, bug riddled, janky piece of overrated shit. Me...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Which of these builds would you use? Or would you recommend any other build?. on the PC board

    @sombre: Just keep in mind that going from a 1060 to a 1050 is a sizeable step down; your GPU is what's driving your games, so it's really the absolutely last place you want to skimp. But if you aren'...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Which of these builds would you use? Or would you recommend any other build?. on the PC board

    @sombre:The second build is going to have longer legs. The i5-8400 is great performance of the money, along with the 1060; AMD cards are still overpriced because of mining. If you can find a full size...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic PUBG Cheating Is Out Of Control. on the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds board

    #GOTY (sorry, I had to)The cheater issue isn't shocking to be honest. Something like 60% of PUBG's players are Chinese (which explains why you see such a gulf between current and peak player counts ...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Feedbacks for GOTY debates 2017. on the General Discussion board

    I don't know, the reality is that I'm just way past actually seeing "GOTY" awards or discussions as meaningless opinions. I mean the GOTY here was a (technically) incompetent game that just had a st...

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic Depression and meaningful games. on the General Discussion board

    Journey hit me right in the feels during a tough time last year. Something about coming across another person in this world, especially when they couldn't talk and we just had to silently accompany ...

    (Belated) thanks for the post on my wall. I know I can be abrasive so I appreciate you having the patience to put up with my opinions on the Visceral topic!
  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic How did unfinished games go from "Please Stop" to "GOTY"?. on the General Discussion board

    @fatalbanana: I agree with most of what you're saying, but ultimately this is still a game they charged their full final price for and added paid microtransactions in. The game was an alpha/beta in n...

    @timberbarrackk: Your usage of exclamation points led to my loose usage of "screaming".I'm not forcing anyone to agree with anything: I posted something as a reply to the OP's question (not directed a...

    @timberbarrackk: If saying I'm "making things up" is the best you can come up with to dismiss my relatively salient points, then I'll have to toss that claim right back your way.You can scream about t...

    @fatalbanana: What you're arguing is sales risk (capital risk in the same industry is typically treated the same); this may or may not be true, but based on what I've heard, Bluehole didn't really put...

    @timberbarrackk: You'll have to forgive me, but your "words don't mean anything anymore" post came off as pretty condescending. If we're not on the same page, then we're not on the same page, that's f...

    It's crazy how many games come out nowadays that it's so easy to miss little gems like this one. Downloading!

  • WetRacoon posted a message in the forum topic How did unfinished games go from "Please Stop" to "GOTY"?. on the General Discussion board

    @timberbarrackk: Admittedly I could say the same right back to you. You're too infatuated with this game to see objectively that it's a broken ass game that was released for full price and with microt...

    @fatalbanana: This is where consumer expectations go awry. I don't honestly care who or what is making a product: the price should be appropriate for the quality, regardless of the source. EA or Act...
