VN s often tackle the issue of death in excruciating detail in lengthy scenes, so I am not sure I can always recommend one when one is in the middle of grieving. But they can be great to have some perspective about death before or after someone's passing. » 11/28/14 2:16pm Today 2:16pm

I personally don't have an issue with bullet sponge behemoth bosses as long as there is an interesting way of fighting them and they are manageable without feeling like they have way too much of an advantage. Wolfenstein New Order threaded that line very well, I thought. » 11/28/14 1:32pm Today 1:32pm

Really hoping it's something that comes with MGS5, even though I can see why they may want to separate the development for the game styles at this rate. I just hope they balance the gameplay a bit better so manics running around with a shotgun doesn't suddenly become untouchable gods. » 11/26/14 8:19pm Wednesday 8:19pm

Really sad, considering a game store isn't just a place to shop, but also a way to mingle with other enthusiasts and to have a more tangible experience with the hobby. It'd be a shame if the only way to have a social experience with the hobby is in game/anime conventions. » 11/26/14 12:53pm Wednesday 12:53pm

Funny thing is, people have been conditioned to not trust TV/magazine adverts for the same reasons for decades. But now that the general internet media is so new, people have stopped considering that the same shenanigans would find its way to new medias as well. » 11/25/14 7:04pm Tuesday 7:04pm

That's why politics is the great poison in a lot of hobbyist communities. It should ultimately be about having a good and friendly organization to have fun in and it should focus on that. If it becomes too political, then suddenly it becomes a political organization and the focus on the hobby is sidelines. » 11/21/14 2:00pm 11/21/14 2:00pm

I suppose that's just a natural conflicting point regarding the narrative, considering the whole point of FarCry is to wreak havoc in the wilderness. Everything else, including the plot is really secondary to that. Perhaps they could have had more elements put in there to aid in the rehabilitation of Kyrat (like some… » 11/21/14 1:40pm 11/21/14 1:40pm

This is what I adore about Farcry series. And love how they are making it more and more important. Even in games like Meta Gear Solid series, they give you the lowdown on binoculars and getting visual intel, but it was never all that crucial for most of the game. » 11/21/14 1:25pm 11/21/14 1:25pm

It's kind of a shame to me, because I'm not really fond of Dragon Age character aesthetics. As in visually, they all have sunken cheeks and just really awkward body hair. Not in a realistic way, but in an uncanny valley sort of way. As awkward as ME sex scenes sometimes were, at least the characters looked pretty… » 11/20/14 6:18pm 11/20/14 6:18pm

It's not a very unrealistic idea though. I'm sure the vast majority of older adults would rather experience a life in a younger, more vibrant body if they get a chance to. I don't think there's actually people itching to re-live a life in the same old body with the same old flaws. I think most people would love to go… » 11/19/14 4:46pm 11/19/14 4:46pm
