  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic Bloodborne Goes Gold. on the Games Discussion board

    Just as a heads up for people starting this game out: You can't level up until you gain your first bit of influence, which you'll get when you enter a boss fight, win or lose. The game manual doesn't ...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic Game of Thrones - Episode 3 is out. on the Games Discussion board

    finish the damn books before HBO makes us sit through a Missandei/Grey Worm wedding. What.the.fuck. She's like 4 in the book and he has no penus...I thought maybe they'd just drop it, but I've seen...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic The Cancer of Modern gaming that is the Quick time Events!. on the Games Discussion board

    I think the first time I remember QTEs as we know them today was probably Die Hard Arcade. So you can probably blame Sega for all this.I don't mind QTEs. I can play a game like Heavy Rain and enjoy it...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic What Are Your Top Heartbreaking Game Cancellations?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Byshop: For my own vote: CCP's World of Darkness. Open world contemporary (modern setting) Vampire MMO by the guys who made Eve so full on greifing and very un-MMO-like freedom to do whatever the he...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic The original Guild Wars and its expansions?. on the Games Discussion board

    Guild Wars has story missions which are instanced, fairly long missions with accompanying cutscenes. There are lots of sidequests which have text-based deliveries, but the main campaigns are all done...

    Well, you're dealing with PCs here, as the above poster mentions. Every customer's rig is going to vary and not just in pure specs but also with respect to the manufacturers of all the various parts, ...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic The best game quotes. on the Games Discussion board

    Working Designs was a factory for great quotes back in the day. They did the best localizations of JRPGs. Some great lines, including one offs like "long sword...length DOES matter," movie referenc...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic What if? If Grand Theft Auto III was a Dreamcast exclusive. on the Games Discussion board

    that fall/winter that GTA3 released was imo the best fall launch line-up in the history of gaming up to that point. Even if GTA3 is exclusive to DC, Sega still has to contend with MGS2, FFX, Ico, SH...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic How would you react if a comics-code was applied to games?. on the Games Discussion board

    this sounds like it came out of the era of twin beds for married couples on TVs (50s, 60s)...when was it actually enforced? I think people that are closer to a medium ascribe more importance to trend...

    @JustPlainLucas said:I don't have as much time as I used to play games, so one of things I don't enjoy anymore is getting lost in video games. I love objective markers, because it feels to me that I'...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic Should Resident Evil continue to have Co-Op in it's Campaign?. on the Games Discussion board

    the problem with that quote is that it assumes what it is trying to prove...that the lack of tension was generated by the addition of a companion. And yet, TLoU was pretty fucking tense...even L4D is...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic Objective markers, the map, and their place in open worlds. on the Games Discussion board

    Fast travel is simply the devs respecting your free time. If you want to walk back, go right ahead. But let's say you stumbled across your last nightshade for the alchemy quest in Riften while you ...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic Anita's Attack On Dying Light. on the Games Discussion board

    There's also Jade's brother that you have to save. In fact, you probably spend more time saving guys than girls. The whole game is about saving people because, at least for that city, it's the fucking...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic My experience with Dying Light (Spoiler alert). on the Games Discussion board

    @Evil_Saluki: just wait. You haven't gotten to running along billboards on the side of a building. I just died repeatedly on that section. Still enjoyed the game, but devs need to get it through t...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic What happened to horror?. on the Games Discussion board

    I think horror games that focus on trying to scare me will always fail at holding my interest (for example, outlast). I enjoy the dark atmosphere and general creepiness of the scenario over cheap th...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic PS+ For March. on the Games Discussion board

    the quality of the indies that come to PS+ really makes me reluctant to actually buy any indies...ever. That's a good thing for me, but I wonder what kind of compensation these indie devs are gettin...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic What system do you use the most for games?. on the Games Discussion board

    Ideally it would be primarily PC over late spring/summer and consoles in the fall to the following spring. Just has to do with the typical launch cycles on consoles and the typical sale periods on ...

  • Ish_basic posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on Pre-Orders?. on the Games Discussion board

    pre-order bonuses are a great way to combat used game sales. Whereas ill-conceived online passes punished consumers for buying used, preorder bonuses simply provide incentives for people to buy new....
