  1. Dark Souls(Demon's Souls successor)

    There's no shame in just looking up how to get to the DLC and just enjoy those delicious bosses.
  2. Wildly unexpected news! Congrats though. If this means more resources and peace of mind to y'all in making games, then good for you. I'm sure the fundamental principle of the agreement was 'we get to keep making the games we want to make without outside pressure'. Hope it works out!
  3. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    It would be very interesting to have the 'next BotW' feature a more urban landscape. How would that affect the sense of discovery and being out in the wild? Will it possibly encroach on the feeling of Mario Odyssey's New Donk City? Honestly, what I hope most of all is for the sequel to go off the beaten path and do something weird and funky. Like Majora was. They've nailed, absolutely nailed, the classic thing, and there's so much space they can still explore. Which they already mentioned themselves, by the way. So I would absolutely get my hopes up, just maybe not within the next two years.
  4. Far Cry 5

    Stupidly, I have owned three PS4 games for over two years now, just waiting for the console to magically appear: TLOU HD, the Uncharted trilogy and Batman: Arkham: Knightly Endeavors. I will most assuredly get myself Bloodborne as soon as I have time for it, and Monster Hunter World struck my fancy too. Also, Diderot effect already kicking in: my tv is seriously in need of upgrading to account for all these detailed visuals.
  5. Far Cry 5

    You're quite right. I gathered my chances would drop spectacularly if there was one of the following in the running: a. A man who also made an effort, but looked more like the character (full beard, possibly tats) b. A woman, making an effort and netting the 'outlier' boon c. A cute kid going just the right amount of disturbing
  6. Episode 427: Northgard

    Well, that's another RTS game after They Are Billions that 3MA has sold me on. The allusions towards this being effectively "Agricola With Warfare" were already more than I needed, but then there was another hour of fun conversation to further impress me. Good job and great cast, everyone!
  7. Far Cry 5

    So, I dressed up as Joseph Seed a week ago for a contest for a Dutch gaming store chain, and I won a PS4. Finally, I can play some of the already-classics on it, and of course Farcry 5 first and foremost. It felt great to be a doomsday cult prophet, by the way.
  8. Missions that made you quit

    Speaking of GTA, the hospital mission in GTA4 I strongly remember as an infuriating piece of mission design. Didn't quit, but I certainly wasn't happy and I absolutely threw my controller on a sofa seat in a semi-controlled fashion to vent my anger.
  9. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    Regarding expensive veggies: here in the Netherlands it's not that bad (yet). It's still much cheaper to eat vegetarian, though there is nowadays a host of delicious meat replacement products of high quality in supermarkets. Not particularly cheap, but it makes everything much easier. Honestly, there is a chicked replacement foodstuff that is extremely tasty. It's been a boon to my curries.
  10. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    What a sick situation to be in, when it's cheaper to buy a piece of murdered animal than some fucking vegetable.
  11. LucasArts adventure games on GOG and Steam

    TCOMI, wow. That was such an important game for me in my teens. I played through it often - though mostly only disc 1 since my second disc had an error [possibly piracy-related]. I bet I can still just about dream the right sequences and puzzle solutions. Ah, to completely forget and be able to enjoy this game freshly again!
  12. Far Cry 5

    There's a Space Asshole on tutorial island?!
  13. Far Cry 5

    The Polygon article seems to think it's a fantastic game, but is so disappointed about the missed opportunity of actually saying something meaningful with its story, that it heavily berates it. I'd say that's a fair judgment. I'm still interested in playing Far Cry 5, but I was hoping they wouldn't pull their punches.
  14. What's the Name of the Game!?

    I know 38 most likely isn't this, but it reminds me of the humor of Postal (3 maybe).
  15. Telltale Troubles

    What an article though. It is invariably saddening to hear how studios are mismanaged and collapse. The Games Industry, ladies and gentlemen. On the other hand, if this pushes the most creative people into the indie sphere to make truly interesting things... we all benefit in the end.
