I don’t think I’m ever going to play Red Dead Redemption 2. Everything people say about it—even when they’re being positive—just makes me wince.
It took me a while to get into RDR2, and I also loved the first one. For me it was two things. One, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I could do once the first camp was set up. Two, I think the difficulty curve is a little steeper. I took a long break from it and went back and now it has its hooks in me. I am…
The way you feel about RDR2 is exactly the way I feel about Sekiro, Dark Souls and their ilk
The Chalice dungeons are such a great concept and so badly executed.
I’ll be honest with you man, if you skip the Chalice Dungeons... you won’t miss much. Though if you are like me when I finished the game, you are probably just jonesing for more of that sweet sweet aggressive combat.
Just as a self correction... re: time crystals... they are, apparently, a real thing...
That Bloodborne DLC destroyed me. The zones are fantastic, but the bosses are fucking brutal.
There is hope! In the cruelest thing King has ever written, the lengthy sequence where Louis imagines he grabbed Gage at the last minute. It goes on and on in such detail, with not just happiness but relief and gratitude, and it makes you believe in it despite the previous pages, and then King snaps out of it and it’s…
Me also felt like she spent first season growing out of that, and they they sent her back to square one at beginning of this season. They could take notes from DS9, where Bashir started off as most annoying member of cast and then steadily improved for seven seasons.
So Tilly is officially my Wesley Crusher because I keep finding myself so often saying “SHUT UP, TILLY!,” that we must make it so.
Hey dude, that’s great because Sekiro looks bad, ass! But I have a serious question for you: what time do you typically get home from work? I’m guessing you play both weekdays and weekends? With work, gym, commute, etc I’m finding i need to do a fucking magic trick to find time to beat a game now.
I really enjoyed Dark Souls III and remember how nice it was to see the Souls world rendered in that high of fidelity but it left the least impression on me of the series. Obviously Souls 1 was my introduction so it left a big mark, and Souls II is flawed but I was still so high on the Souls series I loved the hell…
In a post-bloodborne world I found it a lot harder to go back to the earlier Dark Souls. Dark Souls III obviously took some cues from Bloodborne and sped up it’s combat and gave dodging more of a beef but, once you get used to the bob and weave aggression of Bloodborne (and not to mention it’s killer Lovecraftian…
And, as much as I complain about these reviews, thanks for doing them.
You get a star for not skipping DS2 :)
After finally getting to try someone else’s PSVR out, my wife and I decided to get our own. I have beat Rush of Blood (too scary for my wife) but have hard modes and high scores to seek (holy shit the spiders freaked me out in a way the regular jump scares didn’t). I am slowly (taking my time) playing through Superhot…
Hahahaha, I kid you not. Once I saw the headline for this, I immediately zoomed in just to post a Frinkiac of this very quote. /salute
It’s been a long time (we shouldn’ta left you, left you), but didn’t the original have a unique scene for each playthrough order?
Yeah, I mean: Gita isn’t wrong.
I haven’t tried it out yet, but I’ve heard that the new Tetris game for Playstation VR is amazing. Intended to get you into that nice flow state and not leaving.
