    I am a huge fan of the Half-Life series so this looks amazing. However, right now I don't have the hardware (no VR headset nor gaming PC) so I'll wait on it. Happy to see VR finally get its killer ...

    Oh my god, you guys. I finally started playing Outer Wilds after hearing so many rave about it for months. I have to say, it is pretty astonishing. I haven't been playing "serious" games for a whil...

    @frustratedlnc: Sort of ruining the joke... but, not a real quote. Just, the kind of thing I would have left on a note somewhere I were a dead npc in a game like BioShock/Fallout etc.

    I liked Ori 1 quite a bit but I found the combat very frustrating. I kept on dying trying to do basic traversal and I felt like I didn't have much control over my attacks. Looks like they're taking ...

    So, it's basically a customizable board game? Bit disappointing. The model doesn't look very detailed or coherent. I really just want a traditional Lego set in the Mario world. This looks like th...

    Burgers can be damp and greasy and gross, and fries can be rubbery or soft or burnt. Pizza can be the *very* greasy variety thay leaves your hand dripping. Gyros are maybe too dry. But I feel like a t...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic Will this game make you get VR?. on the Half-Life: Alyx board

    IGN has some rather hyperbolic praise for this based on the first four hours. HL2 is one of my favorite games ever, and Alyx one of my favorite characters. If any game would make me invest in VR this...

    Seattleite here. This city already has a pretty bad outbreak, with a number of deaths already, so it's pretty serious. My work strongly encourages everyone to work from home if they possibly can, at ...

    @bisonhero Funny, I would list those as the kind of neat details that make OoT great. None of those are game-breaking in any way - you don't depend on those to beat the game. If you did, yeah, that...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic YouTube/Twitch/etc recommendations. on the General Discussion board

    You seem to be looking for game streamers in particular... the only ones I ever watch are GB Quick Looks and occasionally Patrick Klepek's Mario Maker Mornings. But I'll suggest other good gaming or g...

    I never really saw the appeal of Oreos myself. They are alright with milk or crushed up in ice cream (where is that option?!) but they are so dry and hard otherwise. I don’t care for the texture or t...

  • wollywoo posted a message in the forum topic I feel my interest in games has almost entirely faded into my 30s. on the General Discussion board

    I feel somewhat similarly. I still play games, but of late (last six months, say) it has mostly been things like Tetris 99 or Slay the Spire that only occupy a small part of my brain while I watch TV/...

    This is still my favorite Zelda. Of course I'm blinded by nostalgia here, so my opinion might be different if I was new to the series. But let me make the case...- It has some of the best music in the...
