  • ZmanBarzel posted a message on the post Nintendo Direct Announcements: Switch News & Games Revealed.

    @nintendians: When Nintendo itself doesn't really support 3D on a platform designed for 3D, it's pretty much dead. 3D TVs aren't being sold anymore (at least in the west), so it would be putting in a ...

    @xenomorphalien: Oh, I'd forgotten that it's going to launch on Game Pass as well. That's really a good deal.

    I adore "Donut County" as well, but I'm thrilled to see "Florence" get the award for portable game. Such a gem!

  • ZmanBarzel posted a message on the post Metro Exodus Review - Brand New Days.

    @Dragerdeifrit: Problem with that: the economics of having multiple people review a single game no longer work out. Instead of having one person devote the majority (if not entirety) of their 40-hour ...

    @asnakeneverdies: As a video game, Hellblade was very, very good, elevated to great when played with quality headphones.

  • ZmanBarzel posted a message on the post Metro Exodus Review - Brand New Days.

    @urbanman2004: Going out on a limb here, but perhaps Michael didn't think "Metro Exodus" did enough to deserve a 9, while Alessandro thought RE2 did.

    I still love how Alan Tudyk channeled Ed Wynn, of all people, as King Candy in the first “Wreck-It Ralph.”

  • ZmanBarzel posted a message in the forum topic What's the perfect 20 minute game?. on the System Wars board

    I think "Portal" works wonderfully in 20-minute increments. That's about the time you need to complete a level or two and call it a day.

    @RELeon: "Red Dead Redemption 2" and Take Two would argue with that. A high-quality game? Despite some quibbles I have with it, it definitely is. Appeals to its fanbase? Again, yep. Stocks will rise? ...

    @derekscorp: Yes, because Robin Williams played such a non-Robin Williams character as the Genie.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the original "Sunset Overdrive" landed on the PS4 later this year as October 2019 would be the 5-year anniversary of the game's release on Xbox One. That's the same amount o...
