    What Are You Playing?

    Definitely, as a matter of fact, if you have any easy advice for that build I'm all ears. If it's so specialized and anemic to be more trouble than it's worth I'll probably just play it straight though. I haven't spent a skill point yet though. Ah, I had no idea of their consumer relations...

    What Are You Playing?

    Yeah, that all became very clear when I fought the Griffin, which I'm glad I didn't waste time prepping for because it wasn't necessary. I switched from keyboard back to controller halfway through because at least I knew how to heal (from accidently wasting several food items before =) and it...

    What Are You Playing?

    I tried playing the 4th one first, which I gave up on because the plot jumped around too much in the beginning and I figured I'm missing something, based on the idea the latest iteration in a game series, barring a major overhaul, should be the most up-to-date, refined, and therefore best...

    What are you reading?

    Lol, under that scenario in my household I'd go with, "Would you fuck me? I'd fuck me. I'd fuck me so hard." It would go delightfully unwell! I think my favorite Levine delivery is when he pulls his shirt out and does that caricature of a screaming woman. It's effectively weird, funny, and...

    What are you reading?

    So, did you empathize with Buffalo Bill? =) Yeah, as one sympathetic to the devil I liked the book and thought it would have made for a more congruent, if not worthy, sequel to Lambs had the original production team been involved. I mean, they made changes anyway so it's not like Tally, Demme...

    What Are You Playing?

    I'm continuing my quest to play the "best games of all time" (still no new entry since BotW in 2017...) while I wait for this year's remakes and bullshit to come out. =) Uncharted 2 HD - Since I've already played, and quite enjoyed, all the new Tomb Raider games that purportedly aped this...

    What Are You Playing?

    Exactly what I'm afraid of, basically. Imagine coming up with a character that had the cure for cancer, let alone a world crumbling global pandemic, and that's all just background for an unrelated story about their feels. It's inane. I wouldn't mind Ellie's personal struggle being part of some...

    What Are You Playing?

    Probably, though it definitely puts potential detractors in the uncomfortable position of poo-pooing a milestone, "Shit, our DLC to the unanimous GOTY has only got some amusement park min-games? Uhh... MAKE THEM KISS!" *Most critically acclaimed game IP ever!* I thought there was still meat...

    What Are You Playing?

    You misjudge me, sir! It could have been about Joel's time as essentially one of The Sisters from Shawshank and I'd have still been all in on him. I'm a SEXIST! Anyway, it was a pretty tame and meek gay love story by today's standards (or maybe not since it's still beyond the MCU or Star Wars...

    What Are You Playing?

    Well, Wally gets the last word and the last laugh by not warning me off of... The Last of Us: Left Behind, which sucked, and was the kind of sentimental melodrama I was afraid the original game would be. Speaking of which, for contrast, let me praise something else about the base game I liked...

    What Are You Playing?

    I liked the original, less deadened, guarded and more emotive version of this sentence better (and you changed it again, I can't keep up because I'm working on my own edits =). Though, I concede the point on lack of explicit writing, which kind of shapes my expectations as well. There's nothing...

    What Are You Playing?

    I almost referenced this in the little stinger about the sequel I added to my previous post, "Apparently society is going to rebuild around lesbian kisses." Those all-male bandits are ready to sign up. That being said... ...I comfortably disagree people will stop fucking. =) There could...

    What Are You Playing?

    I'd be surprised if it didn't, it's the most significant Zelda since Ocarina of Time, which still holds up itself and is recognizable in most modern third person action games. This has been my daily moment of OoT affirmation. =) That's fine, it IS better and more interesting, but the...

    What Are You Playing?

    I didn't mean to post my response to Tabris separately, but if I can I don't see how to delete this extra post. So, I'm just going to leave it here for now, unless an admin wants to combine them, because it is a lot of otherwise unrelated material. =) After Sekiro I might finally be reaching...

    What Are You Playing?

    To put a bow on my The Last of Us experience I'm going to quote and engage with Walter's old Last of Us review because it convinced me to eventually play the game, it's really good and there's no point in me repeating the same points less effectively, and, I need someone or something to converse...
