My gold standard for funny games is portal and the Stanley parable. Both of those games humor comes from acknowledging the absurdity of the premise and then backing it up with good writing. Stanley parable has multiple paths, but limits the player interactivity which allows it to decide when and how the jokes are… Read more
My favorite feature of steam right now is steam big picture. I have my steam link setup on my TV, sit down with my wii u pro controller and seamlessly start any game I've added to my library. I can even get my enumerate games working with a little troubleshooting. I don't remember the last time I sat at my desk to… Read more
What? No love for the hobbit on gamecube? It was like a legend of Zelda lite with linear levels and some lite stealth elements. I had a lot of fun with that game.
In hollow knight take a break and go find some upgrades. My first time through that was the first place I got really stuck. Took a second, got some good upgrades and then came back. Hit it the same way you do other bosses, take your time, learn patterns, logic holes, breaks in the action, etc. You can do it!
But that completely disregards that big speech given by Sam /faramir. Where he talks about how maybe the enemy he killed was just a boy pulled into a war far from home. Look at someone like Saruman or gollum who have huge amounts of nuance and depth. Yes, there are some enemies that can be reasoned with, that deserve… Read more
I just watched annihilation and afterwards read some reviews of it which compared it this same short story. It'll be interesting to compare the two. On the surface level it sounds like they're very similar, but annihilations strength came from the character journey, not the premise.
I try to sort it into categories in steam. What am i”currently playing “ and what’s my” eventually playing “, maybe some of the games I bought I was less interested than I thought and that’s fine. But then I go back to, What are the 4 or 5 games I want to play right now? Maybe I’ll have a platformer, a shooter and a… Read more
Honestly that’s pretty spot on.
From what I understand, ignis’ dlc contains spoilers /alternate universe hopping. Are you just going to play it at the end? Or is there a good spot for it to fit?
358/2 days is in the trailer, but the only important character you don't see in other games is xion. I doubt she'll end up being that important to the endgame anyways.
I liked but didn't love anodyne. It did a good job of making a Zelda feel alike while still doing its own thing. The music was very relaxing, if a bit repetitive for casual listening.
Its all the games ever released in one package. If you already own them all then there's nothing new, but if you want to catch up on the series and have it all in one place it's not a bad way to catch up.
Just turn it into an anthology series. The first movie was good because a) it wasn't about Jack and b) it was a fun adventure romp. The more convoluted and lore based the franchise got, the more it lost itself. People like pirates doing pirate things, just don't feel the need to reinvent the wheel with every turn
That’s like saying adding 200 pages to your favorite book would make it better. More isn’t always better. One of the most effective narrative tools is pacing, and good pacing means knowing how long your story needs to be and not making it shorter or longer than it should be.
Sword of destiny is much better
