    Games to look forward to!

    I don't disagree, there's only so many ways to do "fantasy, dragons!" in relatively new or interesting ways, and I wouldn't even say Dark Souls did, but its mythology was supported by an engrossingly oppressive playstyle and atmosphere that when put together really sang. Yeah, if you haven't...

    Games to look forward to!

    On second thought, maybe they shouldn't do something different. I've long thought of it as more of a Brand X generic fantasy, a Souls-like knockoff within the actual franchise. Still, if you're deep into Souls, this is the deepest, darkest corner to go down until you go hollow. There's no...

    They have to do something different sometime, right? Right!?:shrug: They sort of tried expanding the universe with DS2, but we saw how that was received. I thought DS3 was a fitting if not quite revitalizing return, though to your point it was also about putting the whole thing to bed.

    Games to look forward to!

    That was my second thought when I saw Homing Soulmass: 1) It's probably legit, 2) It's more Dark Souls! I've been thinking about this since the game was announced; despite the talk of a brand new and different IP is this essentially just going to be SoulsBorne VI (seven counting Sekiro) by yet...

    Games to look forward to!

    Well, I started believing when I saw the homing soulmass spell, and I'll take Schreier's word for it unless told otherwise, because hey, why not, this game has to see the light of day eventually, right? On the flipside of this discussion, is it a good sign it looks so generic it could be some...

    What are you reading?

    You can't judge a book by its cover, but those catchy sequel titles aren't the most inspired. I mean, I get it, but just do that at home!:shrug:

    Games to look forward to!

    I certainly don't remember it, but then I'm so old I don't remember a lot of things from those days. Who's this Yuffy again, a new character? And what about making Rad XIIII playable!? *shakes cane* Yeah, it would be odd not to make it as widely available as possible while the PS4 player base...

    What Are You Playing?

    Oooh, you get the rarer treat of experiencing it all the first time in chronological order. That's pretty sweet, and yeah, RDR1 is arguably even more impressive given its age and more straightforward design. That's not a knock on 2, just that 1 is more like a classic western whereas RDR2 is...

    I already pre-purchased Diablo II: Resurrected and signed up for the technical alpha, and I suggest you all do the same, with the urgency of one saying get vaccinated for Covid ASAP. :ganishka:

    What Are You Playing?

    Good question, and thankfully surprisingly simple to get launched: you just download the MotherVR file here, put it in your game folder, start steamVR before starting the game, and then it will automatically start in VR (there's a read-me with more specific instructions). You might have to turn...

    What Are You Playing?

    Alien: Isolation (MotherVR) - I finished this and the story DLC last night and was not disappointed all the way through. If anything the main game went above and beyond, including several points I thought it was ending but it just kept giving more until I wondered if you'd ever escape the alien...

    Movies to look forward to

    I should really have a bigger takeaway than, "Is that the worst-looking version of Reptile being a jobber for fucking Kano?" And kind of dreading either answer (it might be worse if they put a reptilian proxy in but NOT actually Reptile =). That's where we are though. Mortal Kombat, you ripped...

    What Are You Playing?

    This is all very interesting to me because I had the inverse experience with this game, which supremely disappointed me coming off of 3D Land, my favorite modern Mario, and of course compared to SMW, which is still my favorite ever. And despite having the opposite experience you pretty much nail...

    What are you watching? (television thread)

    Speaking of Mike Judge, here's the boob, huhuhuh, tube I'm watching at the moment (made better than it has any right to be):

    Brown was the breaking point with the Patriots too, cut for his toxicity and Brady only cared he had no weapons lol. I actually think this is to his competitive credit and why teammates love him; he only cares about winning and he'll back you if you help, even if it makes him look bad. He's not...
