I would love for this to ultimately be revealed as canon. Preferably as the final shot of the series.
I’ve been on a serious adventure game kick of late; maybe it’s just the Monster Hunter fatigue, but I need something with a narrative that drives me forward. Last night I dipped into an old, previously untouched resident of my Steam backlog and booted up Sam & Max 301: The Penal Zone.
It’s not quite the last gasp of…
Finally broke down and looked up how to get one of the Blue Hearts. (Level 2's). The shame!
Looking back at 2017, I think Prey ends up being my GOTY. A lot of it has to do with the way it never lets you feel too powerful, too; even late in the game, taking down even basic a Phantom is never trivial, and I really appreciate that push to survive. If you finish it (and you’re not all doomed space exploration…
Absolute agreement on Zorah. *Load cannon. Load cannon. Load cannon. Fire cannon. Repeat*
I have a lot of affection for Odagaron, partly because his armor is just awesome, but also because he feels both simple and brutal. His attacks are all really well telegraphed, but if you’re not paying attention, you get punished.
What have been people’s favorite fights? I laid out my love/fuck this guy relationship with Bazelgeuse in the review, but he definitely makes an impression.
I jump into fights with randos if I’m just looking to grind up some parts, but I never put my mic on for them. Honestly, with four hunters, against most things, you don’t really need to communicate. The only time I’ve brought people in myself was either when I was playing with friends, or the two-monster hunts I…
Switching back and forth between those two particular “fight the giant thing” games sounds like it’d be a real trip.
I didn’t watch the episode, but the fact that Grant Morrison dorks have now snuck “Barbelith” onto millions of people’s TV screens TWICE in the last few months is very amusing to me.
Kim Dickens is great in it, too. I remain ever-hopeful that Jake Kasdan will someday become a “name.”
You can customize them in this one, and you’d better believe mine is modeled after my actual cat.
I’m going dual-blade, although, now that the game is out, I need to figure out what ranged weapon to use for multiplayer.
As someone who also just finally banged out the main story last year myself, and then plunged right into Hearts Of Stone: You are in for a TREAT, my friend.
You’re absolutely right. Thanks for pointing this out.
You are, of course, welcome to your thoughts and feelings about site design, content, etc., but as someone who personally wrote 5-8 Newswires every single working day of 2017, I can say that the idea that we’ve cut back on news content (outside of the last two weeks, when the desk has been on reduced hours for the…
I’m a firm believer that Central Yharnam is one of the top Souls areas, period; it’s the only city in the entire series that actually feels like a functional space people might have lived in, once.
I’m probably the biggest Hollow Knight booster on the staff, but I found myself struggling to name a specific area that stood out, instead of just a general overall level of goodness. City Of Tears is pretty special, though; that “rain” is beautiful.
I think there are few series where 3D graphics muddy the waters worse than Mega Man.
That’s interesting about it originally being the second episode. I’d wondered while I watched it; it’s a better second ep. than Bee-Mo, at least.
The only place I’ve seen citing 10 episodes is Deadline. If a press release went out about the order, I never got it. Apologies if I was wrong, but I guess we’ll find out in…
