Re: An interview with Alfie Bown

If people are interested in exploring related topics to those in the interview, the most recent episode of the Cracked Podcast discusses similar ideas. They don't talk about video games, rather design in advertising, building layouts, etc... I found it quite interesting.

Re: An interview with Alfie Bown

Just finished my 2nd listening. I can see where some of Alfie's ideas might be seen as a bit extreme, but I thought he was being completely reasonable in the way he presented all of his ideas. Most of the points he made were leaning towards the psychology of how people interact with and use games in...

Re: An interview with Alfie Bown

I thought this was an interesting interview, partly for the content, but also for the reaction that it received on twitter. I didn't feel that anything in it was offensive, everyone was being civil, but I was also focused on making dinner while I listened. I may have to give it another more dedicate...

The Beginner's Guide by Spencer Saunders

How often have you felt connected to a game or its story? How often does it make you feel like the story is either about you, or being told to you? Before playing The Beginner’s Guide, I would say that Tearaway was the closest I have felt to a game. That is because the game directly acknowledged me,...

Re: How do you play games? (One at a time or multiple titles at once)

Lately I have had a few games going at once: at the moment they are Rogue legacy on PS4/Vita, getting close to platinuming it, and Bastion on PS4. Spelunky and GTA V are my go to games when I just want to relax for a bit. In addition to these I picked up where I left off in Tomb Raider today (about ...

Re: Our next podcast recording: Transistor

Bastion is in my top 10 favorite games, so when I heard about transistor, I got a little excited. I didn't pick it up day one, as I am always looking to save a few dollars, but got it in the summer sale and played through it in probably 2 or 3 sessions. First, what I liked about this game: Almost ev...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I have been watching three shows recently: 1. Scrubs, I am watching it all the way through for the 2nd time. 2. Firefly, just started watching it for the first time, only on the 3rd episode, but I am loving it. 3. Arrested Development, I have seen a few random episodes, but am finally watching it in...

Re: Helldivers

I think the UAV was only available for a limited time, you had to buy the game shortly after its release. But I could be wrong.

My loadout usually consists of the scythe laser beam, and 4 mechs.

Re: Helldivers

I haven't played too much recently, but I would love to get back into this game, I have had some pretty funny moments involving my mech suit and accidentally running people over. Add me on PSN if you'd like: Tleprie

Re: PlayStation Vita

Well I tried playing MGS2, but just couldn't get into it, the controls felt too clunky for me. Luckily I got a physical copy so I was able to return it, picked up Child of Light instead, and am enjoying it quite a lot. I may go back for MGS some other time.

Re: PlayStation Vita

I played through Tearaway a few months ago, I have been thinking about getting Final Fantasy X & X-2. I put about 30 hours into P4G, but it just lost its appeal for me.

Re: PlayStation Vita

I have played through Killzone, and really enjoyed it, I may go back through and try to complete more of the special missions. I played a bit of Uncharted when it was free on PS+, didn't really get into it, but I may have to try again.

Re: PlayStation Vita

I have a long car ride coming up in a few days, and am looking to try out something new on the Vita. As of right now I mostly play smaller indie games (especially spelunky), but would like to try out a more AAA game on the Vita. I am not a huge fan of JRPGs, but if someone can sell me on one I shall...

Re: SoP submissions *please read first post*

First is the track The Courtesy Call, from the Portal 2 soundtrack. I think it is played at or near the begging of the game, but don't quite remember. Regardless of where it appears, I think it reflects the overall tone of the game perfectly, shifting from tense to a bit slower and then picking up a...

Re: Your Forum Name/Gamer ID Origins

Just saw this thread, thought I'd add my origin story to the rest: Me and a friend got Final Fantasy: My Life as a King on the Wii, and were trying to come up with a cool name for our city. I think I just made him put in some random letters, tle, and I finished it off with prie. It was a while befor...

Re: Star Wars: Battlefront

Everything I have read about the game so far is making me really excited. While space battles would be cool, they were pretty mediocre in Battlefront 2, and I am fine without them. Split Screen co-op is also a HUGE bonus. I am a big fan of couch co-op/multiplayer, and with so many multiplayer games ...

Re: Comics (Batman, and other comics in general...)

I don't stay up to date on any series, instead just borrow from friends or the library. Sometimes me or my brother will get our favorites from amazon or a local shop if they have them. My favorites in no particular order: Chew, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The Invincible Iron Man, Civil War, House of M...

Re: Speedball & Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe - Cane and Rinse

Never played these games before, but I think I may pick it up on the Vita soon.

The entire episode I kept thinking of Mario Strikers on the Gamecube. I like that someone (Leon, I think) mentioned it at the end.

Anyway, awesome episode!

Re: PlayStation Vita
