  1. Wolfenstein II: It's a Blastkowicz

    Aha. That's right at the beginning of the game, but if you haven't played The New Order the context and emotion of those characters isn't going to hit. BJ knows all those folks from the events of the first Machine Games Wolfenstein.

    Going bullet by bullet * Not sure what part of the game the demo is, but it's possible * Very possible, the English voice acting is genuinely excellent. I'd be curious about your impressions of the Spanish. * If you're thinking about it it might be true * Almost definite. I know people are into the steam controller but it's no substitute for a first person shooter. I have to imagine they aren't dropping a lot of cutscene bombs on you if you're playing a 20 minute demo, and the cutscenes are the heart and soul of the game.

    There's a desert map with a luchador arena, a sawed off shotgun and a jetski, holy shit Playerunknown's Battlegrounds

    IMO Fate is a good system for Adventure Zone, because the consequences of using the system are really flexible and spin out down the road in ways that aren't just damage points. It allows conflicts that aren't ended with death or an artificial interruption by story conceits. It allows open interpretation of skills and abilities to play to the creativity of the goofballs using it. Plus the numbers are small and easy to interpret.
  5. Oh neat, I am super glad you talked about Terroir! I bought that game for my dad when it came out of early access because he likes games and wine. I'll have to bother him about playing it now that it's gotten Boosted so thoroughly. BTW, Ludo is from Episode 80, Happy Dishonored Halloween, perhaps my personal favorite episode.
  6. GOTY of the Year

    1. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS (TM) (R) (C) ESQ, LLC Also: West of Loathing Hollow Knight Dead Cells Wolfenstein 2 Prey Horizon Zero Dawn Mario Middle Earth: Shadow of War Heat Signature Hon. mention: Night in the Woods (A game I like, but have not finished and has not captivated me like many others) Zelda (The excellent characters and story of Horizon, a wildly similar game, combined with not playing Zelda at launch to ride the wave of the zeitgeist really has me feeling like I missed something other people are slam dunking as GOTY) Haven't played, want to (or won't): Nier: The gameplay drives me away from a story that attracts me. Eagerly awaiting spoiler discussions AC:O Battle Chef Brigade Steamworld Dig 2 Dishonored: DOTO
  7. It's interesting to have a relatively exact knowledge of how far through Wolf 2 Chris is, just by virtue of having a discussion of hitler's chaingun arm.
  8. Wolfenstein II: It's a Blastkowicz

    Played the story from start to finish yesterday. Holy crap what a game! Goodness I thought some other games had a moment or two. This game had a moment or two per level. Whoever did the cinematography for some of those cutscenes deserves a lot of awards. Played on whatever the default setting was, did not experience the difficulty spikes I've seen a lot about. Bring on every spoiler cast.
  9. Gaming HDTV recommendations

    It's hard to go really wrong on a tv, now. The thing I hear the most, especially higher end stuff, is everything is good but too expensive. My suggestion is take a look at the wirecutter article and if those TVs don't quite fit what you're looking for, pay attention to the qualities they valued and compare what you're looking at against them.
  10. It's explicitly a revenge story, told through the eyes of the man who was successfully framed for the brutal murder of his country's ruler and his lover. This story isn't a Law and Order episode, it's reclaiming the throne by the most effective methods 6 people can manage. Unless you're motivated by extrinsic factors (achievements that tell you not to kill anyone, or a desire to mess around with all the outsider powers, say), it's on you as the character to decide whether a fate worse than death is a warranted action. There aren't any "good" options.
  11. Super Mario Odyssey (One D, Two Ss)

    I'm trying to find a perspective, comparing those two games. I think the way I'm contextualizing it is I understand the praise of Zelda far more than I do Mario. Even though I finished Mario and I probably won't finish Zelda, I get why people went absolutely nuts about Breath of the Wild. Comparatively, I think Mario is fun with a couple of moments that stand out. The music is awesome though, I've caught myself whistling it at work.
  12. Super Mario Odyssey (One D, Two Ss)

    I have now completed the game. It ended really well, I'm very glad I loaded it back up and more or less mainlined the last 3-4 worlds. The ending sequence was great, I was smiling almost the entire time. The kingdom you unlock after finishing was worth running around in. The kingdom you unlock with enough moons though...
  13. Super Mario Odyssey (One D, Two Ss)

    So far this game is Good, with Great moments. New Donk City saved the game for me, it's by far the strongest and most creative thing I've seen so far. I think perhaps I was expecting more, with the absolute maximum level of hyperbole shown in review scores. The caveat is I have not "completed" the game, so maybe it gets stonk crazy 3 hours of play time from where I am now.
  14. Crota 2Day: A Destiny 2 Forum Thread

    You could talk to us in slack instead of being dramatic about the act of attempting to interact with people instead, I guess?
  15. I'm now at the portion of the podcast where Nick angrily describes eating a bushel of crabs in Maryland. He is objectively incorrect, because nowhere did I hear him say "the best eating experience you can have with friends, where you get to hit stuff with a hammer". The weird partially remembered recollection of the miasma of crab guts and old bay haze was hilarious to listen to, though.
