    I'm currently replaying it on Death March with all the DLC, and just got to Skellige. After spending what felt like 15-20 hours each in Velen and Novigrad, it does feel overwhelming, but it's definit...

  • zombiepenguin9 posted a message in the forum topic Your First 1000 Hour Game (I hit mine). on the General Discussion board

    I don't think I've ever hit 1,000 hours in a game. Probably the closest would either be Oblivion or Skyrim, with 300-500 hours each across multiple platforms.

    I played a lot of the Jane's Combat Simulations series as a kid, but have yet to meet anyone else who played those. I don't think they were an extremely niche series or anything.

  • zombiepenguin9 posted a message in the forum topic Solo streams are boring. on the General Discussion board

    I don't really see a problem with it... it's just extra stuff on top of all the normal features they do. It's also cool that individual staff members have the opportunity to showcase a game they're p...

  • zombiepenguin9 posted a message in the forum topic If not VR or AR, what is next for games?. on the General Discussion board

    I wasn't aware of this at all, but it sounds like the site hasn't got any negative attention from this, which is always a possibility with these messed up situations.

  • zombiepenguin9 posted a message in the forum topic Are purchasing MHW for Xbox One or PS4?. on the Monster Hunter: World board

    Haven't played anything from the series before, but this last UPF and the recent hype has got it on my radar. I'd pick it up for the Xbox, as my PC is pretty underpowered for anything but indie titles...
