    I haven't played it myself, but Mark Brown has some things to say about Toki Tori 2. It's a Metroidvania where you don't gain any new abilities except for your understanding of the logic of the world...

  • wollywoo posted a message on the post The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Nintendo Switch).

    Huh, this looks surprisingly good. Impressive. Between this, Skyrim, Planescape, Baldur's Gate I+II, Divinity, Pillars of Eternity, not to mention JRPGs like a bunch of Final Fantasys, Dragon Quest...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Worst song of the 80s. on the Off-Topic board

    I mean, there was definitely good stuff in the 80's. (Paul Simon's Graceland is one of my all-time favorites.) I think it's just that there's a certain definitive 80's sound that I'm not a big fan of....

    @nutter: Yeah, I was mostly thinking of the hits. But I actually like a lot of the hits of the 60's or 70's.

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Worst song of the 80s. on the Off-Topic board

    I feel like a lot of people are going to hate me for this, but, honestly, most music from the 80's is pretty unlistenable for me. It's so overproduced. For music to be meaningful to me it has to ki...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    It's interesting to see the show as a study of different types of evil. Gus's cold, calculating vengeance. Tuco's code of loyalty. The way Jesse is manipulated into murder. And of course, Walt's s...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    @nutter I think he actually likes and respects Jesse, and feels a little bad about keeping him caged up. He's not cruel like his uncle - earlier he tries to stop them from hurting him for no reason. ...

    What makes Todd interesting in El Camino is that we learn he does have some empathy, or at least a sense of morality - he does feel bad for killing. It's just that his guilt is not at all in proporti...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    @nutter: Fair enough. (I'm not familiar with the Michael Rooker character you're referring to.) Your description of Todd is totally correct - he's like a normal person except that the part of his br...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Your favorite overpowered ability, gear, item, weapon, unit, etc.?. on the General Discussion board

    The best feeling is in Slay the Spire when you play as the Defect and you get lots of powers and relics that feed off each other. Every time you play a power, you draw two cards, get lightning orbs, a...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    By the way. Can I complain about how absolutely infuriariating it is when Netflix switches to the next thing automatically instead of letting the credits roll? Totally breaks the mood. A good movie n...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Rate the last movie you watched.. on the Off-Topic board

    El Camino 3 / 5Breaking Bad is my all-time favorite show, and Jesse Pinkman one of the best characters, so I was looking forward to finding out how what happened to him. Without spoilers, I'll I can s...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic What's your favorite top-down Zelda game?. on the The Legend of Zelda board

    Definitely Link's Awakening. I know LTTP is the fan-favorite, but the dungeons aren't very interesting compared to LA or later games, and it's a bit too long. Link's Awakening has a tight, perfectl...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Google promises that NEGATIVE LATENCY will help Stadia not feel laggy. on the General Discussion board

    Negative latency is a good first step. But for optimal play, the next version of their product will require imaginary latency. Soon after that we will surely see quaternionic latency.

    I actually think their new statement, taken on its own, is reasonable-ish. If they had initially given this minor penalty, with a better explanation, I wouldn't be that pissed off. BUT, Brack comple...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Blizzard Ruling on HK Interview - Worst thing a video game company has done?. on the Hearthstone board

    It's an interesting question to me how Blizz could have handled this better. I actually understand why they would not want to air this kind of protest, even though I support it. Maybe if they had just...

    It is well within their rights to do what they did, per the regulations. It would also be well within their rights to NOT do what they did - the regulation *specifically gives them complete discretion...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic What have you been reading? - Book Discussion Thread. on the Off-Topic board

    I enjoyed what I read of House of Leaves, but I abandoned it halfway through. It is very self-indulgent. Everything with Will Navidson was fascinating, but I was exhausted with all the other stories. ...

    Wow, there's a lot of love for Rogue Legacy here. I found it very mediocre. Pretty standard jumping and slashing bits with nothing unique to keep me going, other than the 'legacy' bit of changing up p...

    Despite how many games I've played over my lifetime, I'm struggling to think of a single series where I've beaten all the entries (not counting series of only two games, like Half-Life, Portal) The cl...
