  1. What game is that?
  2. Which ES game is the best?

    I was late to the Elder Scrolls party and I've only played Oblivion and Skyrim. I've had a lot of fun with both games, but neither of them would be on my "essentials" list, if I had such a thing. I guess I should check out the older games to see what all the fuss is about?
  3. While the whole idea of a Duke Nukem movie seems unnecessary and 20 years too late to me, it's not like someone is making a Dark Souls or Deus Ex movie, where something really epic and interesting is going to be mangled by someone who doesn't understand the material. The only way they could fuck this up is by not making it crass and irrelevant enough.
  4. Dark Souls Remaster Coming in May

    Bloodborne is best SoulsBorne, but I'll take whatever I can get. Being someone who started with DS3, I'm hoping the rumours about the combat being overhauled are true, and this isn't just DS1 with better graphics and multiplayer. And please change that god awful inventory system.* *Not that Bloodborne's was a lot better, what with constantly having to go back to the Hunter's Dream to restock items.
  5. It's probably a case of a few bad apples spoiling the bunch, much like any gaming community.
  6. The late Robin Williams might have played some Doom in his time, he was certainly a big Quake fan.
  7. Favorite Horror games or movies?

    The Babadook. Funny name, outstanding movie that horrifies on multiple levels. A few honourable mentions: Lake Mungo, The VVitch, It Follows, The Blair Witch Project, John Carpenter's The Thing As for horror games, the classic Silent Hill games are a pretty obvious choice. I also really enjoyed Alien Isolation.
  8. EA shuts down Visceral Games - The EA Dilemma

    That sucks, personally I really liked the Dead Space games. Dead Space was great, Dead Space 2 was even better. Dead Space 3 was flawed but got a lot of undue hate.
  9. Goth versus Metal

    Though I consider them to be goth metal, Type O were more of an "affectionate" parody band than a serious endeavor. Their best-known songs are quite obviously poking fun at goth stereotypes, especially Black No. 1.
  10. Most recent movie you saw

    Alien Covenant. Ironically, all the stuff with the Alien was what I least liked about it, especially the last 20 minutes or so where it just turns into another Alien movie. Some interesting ideas fleshed out poorly, beautiful visuals in service of very little. I'd rate it a notch or two above Prometheus, but it's very much a case of style over substance. A typical Ridley Scott movie basically.
  11. What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Horizon Zero Dawn. Truckloads of fun robot dinosaur hunting, with a great protagonist and a lovely story.
  12. Why did Doom 3 mapping die?

    As a former Doom 3 mapper I'll chip in. Fact is you can spend weeks working on one room and making it look pretty. This is to say nothing about making a whole level that looks good, and more importantly is fun to play. For every Phobos and EoC there are umpteen projects that bit the dust, or at best ended up being downscaled, and it's not hard to see why. It's work, and I'll wager most hobbyists just run out of time and/or motivation. Those that remain are extraordinarily committed individuals. I can't even imagine making levels for a more modern game, albeit with the right tools. E.g. making a Doom '16 level from scratch?! Screw that noise.
  13. What's your desktop, or etc. setup?

    AMD FX-8320 16GB DDR3 EVGA GTX 980 Windows 10 My PC is getting a little long in the tooth and it wasn't even top-of-the-line when I built it, but it does what I want it to do. I don't even remember what model my monitor is, but it's a 24" ASUS 1080p 144Hz something or other. If we're allowed to speak of consoles, I've got a PS4 Slim, and a bunch of retro consoles stuffed away somewhere.
  14. I don't mean to derail the thread but what exactly is disappointing about it? I haven't really kept up with it since it was announced.
  15. New Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer

    I've lost a lot of respect for Rockstar as a publisher, but they DO make wicked games. And now that I own a PS4 I don't have to wait around for a PC port, which is nice.
