Re: Life Is Strange - Cane and Rinse 277

Hi guys! Life got really busy and I've been away for the last six months. I hope I'll soon have time to become a more active member of the community again though. I just beat Life is Strange and listened to the podcast. I wanted to come throw my complete and unequivocal support behind Josh's opinion...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I started playing Life is Strange. I'm about 45 minutes in, so there's still a lot left for me to see. I like Max and some of the high school dynamics are set up in interesting ways But hooooo boy is the dialogue/writing distractingly bad (at least so far). None of Max's internal dialogue sounds any...

Re: Sound of Play: 82

"Vamos allá" means "We go there." Vamo' is a regional way of saying vamos (like gonna or eatin' in English).

Though I kind of prefer the flat earth translation. :D

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I wasn't sure when to post it here or "Games completed in 2017", but I finished Stein's;Gate, which is to say I got one ending out of a possible six, so not really complete. Have you played any of the Zero Escape games? I had similar questions where I wasn't sure how to count them as complete. Afte...

Re: HD remakes / remasters

I'd love to see a reissued Mass Effect and Crysis trilogy on current generation, too. I would love a remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy. I want to replay the trilogy as a renegade, but I keep not pulling the trigger just in case a remaster comes out. I thought it would be a no brainer in the lead ...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Lack of backwards compatibility (both for Wii U games and of previous e-shop purchases) is my deal breaker for the Switch, at least for several years. Everyone is completely correct about this being a business decision, but it doesn't seem like a great one to me. Their competitors have bigger librar...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I was playing Skyward Sword to finish it before the podcast came out next weekend. I've only got a few hours left (just got the second part of the song of the hero). Unfortunately when I stepped away from the game for a few minutes, I came back and our new puppy had chewed through the nunchuck cord....

Re: Videogame News

I think our disagreement here comes down to your Group A and Group B analogy and there only being a small overlap between the two. I've been following a lot of these anti-PC conversations online (on both sides of the political spectrum). And I disagree with you that most people who are self-proclaim...

Re: Videogame News

I'm unsure as to what exactly you mean by anti-PC "culture" or what makes it a movement, but I do think that there are valid arguments against the over- or inappropriate use of political correctness and I take issue with seeing it being apparently conflated with the alt-right of all things. I know ...

Just an idea, the content is all here, it could just be a bit more accessible maybe. :) I kind of agree with Suits on this one. Totally understand that it would be too much work to go back through old threads and break them up by game. But separate threads for different games in a series would fit ...

Re: Videogame Deals

This seems like a cracking deal, but obviously with so many games it's easy to overlook many of them. What are people's highlights in the bundle? Super Meat Boy and Guacamelee are two of my favorite games from the last five years. Swapper is really good too. I'm really looking forward to playing Th...

Re: Our next Zelda podcast recording (12.2.17): The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

There is an alternate universe where Skyward Sword is a masterpiece. In that universe, it joins the pantheon of A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time , achieving universal acclaim and pushing the medium forward. Unfortunately, in our universe, that masterpiece is buried within a different, relative...

Re: Undertale

Instead, it's a game bursting with more humanity than maybe anything I've ever played. It insists that everyone, from the lowliest doggo to the most intimidating knight, has something to give to the world. It's a world where being good is hard , but also one in which it matters . Its optimism, humo...

Re: Our next-but-two podcast recording (11.2.17): Undertale

I'm going to be honest, I'm having trouble writing my correspondence for Undertale. On one hand, it was the best game I played last year by a lot. The soundtrack and characters are some of the best I've ever encountered in a game. It reduced me to tears numerous times over my two and a half playthro...

Undertale-Hopes and Dreams This one was on a previous Sound of Play, so I understand not wanting to play it again. But it is so joyful and empowering. It perfectly captures the tone at the end of a pac...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'll wait until I cool down and then I might give it another shot. My main reason for not picking it back up is that I don't want to diminish my love of Shovel Knight by getting frustrated by the DLC. But I'll take a wait and see approach. I bought a cheap copy of Burnout Paradise when I was in the ...
