  1. E3 2017

    The original BG&E is definitely a 7/10 game. I honestly don't know why people are so excited for the new one, especially after just a cg trailer. Didn't they put out one of those a few years ago anyway?
  2. E3 2017

    I will play Wolfenstein 2.
  3. anyone else excited about Resident Evil 7?

    I'm definitely interested in it. Was impressed by the demo and just how much of a departure it is from previous RE games. I'll probably pick it up at some point this year, just nowt right at launch.

    Holy moly I don't think I could disagree more with the "classic movies shouldn't be given leeway" stance. Yowza. Anyway, I'm trying to catch up on horror flicks this month and we watched Maniac Cop which is a pretty standard, boring slasher except it has Bruce Campbell in it and oh MAN they could put this movie out today and it would be relevant as fuck. Also caught that Evil Dead remake which I was avoiding on principle but it turns out it's really good! Lots of gnarly gore and a completely rad ending. A bunch of nods to the original but with fun/smart twists (Demonic possession as a metaphor for heroin withdrawal is a small touch that went a long way). We rented House of the Devil a few weeks ago and it was great at building tension, which I guess was the whole point. I wish I had caught it when it came out, before the trend of good horror throwbacks was a thing.
  5. Managed to snag this for $20 when Target messed up their pricing and holy shit I'm glad I did. It's maybe my favorite game of the year so far. I haven't played any of these before, the last racing game I loved was Burnout 3 and man this is scratching those same itches in a slightly different way. All the online stuff (and most of the other features really) are totally baffling to me since I basically missed out on the last two generations of AAA games. Is there a way to join a thumbs group or populate my friends list with friendly thumbs? Xbox live tag is MaikaMonroe
  6. General Video Game Deals Thread

    I think this is a new thing? They adjust bundle prices if you already own things in them. I remember being really frustrated that it was cheaper to buy the GOTY edition instead of just picking up the expansions I didn't have. Cool to see they did something about that.

    I caught Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping last weekend and can confirm that it is good and funny.I don't usually go see comedies in theaters but I have a soft spot for the Lonely Island people. I didn't like their previous movies (Hot Rod and MacGruber) but this one was great.
  8. I'd imagine if they're ragequitting it's because it's a stomp. Sometimes you just get terrible randoms in that. That's part of the fun though.
  9. This is really close to hire I feel about the game. It's definitely not as sharp as tf2 in terms of writing, and you really need to have a somewhat competent team to have a good time, or have both teams be equally incompetent. They still solved the "no one ever wNts to play support" thing either so when I'm not playing with friends that's usually what I have to play in hopes that the team will follow my lead and stick with the tank. It's very frustrating to play solo most of the time. It's fun with a decent team but the matchmaking seems iffy. About 25% of the time it's just a huge stomp one way or the other.
  10. Return of the Steam Box!

    I still use my 360 controller more, especially for games that rely on the right stick for camera controls. Mostly third person games like Dark Souls or GTA. It's great for xcom on the TV though!

    Huh. I guess I can see this but it really pulled me in. I loved it and thought it was fascinating.
  12. I have a feeling that most people are playing on PC, but that might just be because that's where my friends play. It's also $20 cheaper there than on consoles.

    Crate & Crowbar is indeed very good. I think there's a lot of crossover appeal between them and the Thumbs too. They do a great job of really getting into what they like/don't like about a game and their enthusiasm is really infectious.

    Ugh yes, one of those McElroy's has the most grating voice and I hate that I can't get past it.
  15. Other podcasts

    I really like having an episode or two of Watch Out For Fireballs on my phone for throwing on when I run out of my weeklies and still want to listen to people talk about games. They have a big backlog so every once in a while I'll go through and download one for a game I like or have played recently. I'll probably switch over to Bonfireside Chat for a bit since I'm trying Dark Souls again.
