Actually most people probably didn't even notice the pee odor comment until Blodhelm quoted it and called it cringe worthy, so who is actually responsible for the trolling here? My vote is for Rosbjerg, since he made the thread and is bald.

Bad joke is a bad joke, but not the reason for the troll comment. In what little I've seen, the poster enjoys forum reaction and wears it like a scribbled badge of honor. Solely my mistake for feeding the troll, however.

Sounds like you're trying to troll me.

You keep commenting on something that either nobody else cared about or everyone else just ignored.

Here...

I'll apologize: I'm sorry and now with that maybe you can move on with your life but maybe you'll continue to try to make a fight where there is none. Otherwise you can continue to troll if you want to that's cool too.

We all know bald people are evil. They are double evil if they got a beard.

I think it's the beard that gives it away. 1_0_by_babblingfaces-dbdhcc6.png

Losing pretty much every game in Overwatch competitive. Wish I could go Pharah as I'm best at that, but have to deal with some other useless fool going as her or teammates bitching about needing heals/tank but not switching.


+1

Actually I also keep losing because queueing with my fiance dumps me in matches a bit too high rank for me. If she gets any better I won't even be able to queue with her anymore. She's much better than me. Won't even let me win in 1v1s, the shrew. </3

Transistor again...

There's something about Supergiant's games... they're super short rpg's that are only like 8 hours of content but yet have as much depth as a 200 hour rpg. I find what helps with this is little tricks the developer successfully pulls off that other developers do not try or maybe everyone else is afraid to?

Transistor still has one of my favorite ost's. Welcome home Red... welcome home.

I come in here to read about new games recently released, and all I learn about is SonicMage may have some sort of yeast infection.

Completed Life is Strange after getting it on Playstation Plus last month.  The little things are what makes this game shine.  All the tiny details scattered around the world that brings quite a surprising amount of life to the characters.

 

My biggest complaint is the dialogue...it's tortuously bad at times.  It sounds odd but I can totally tell that this game is made by a bunch of French hipster dudes trying to think like American college girls.  If I hear the word 'hella' again I think I might gnaw off my own fingers.

 

Still, it was worth playing for the interesting mechanics and competent world building.

Shadow of the Beast(PS4)

 

+Great art and visuals

+Fun gameplay

+Entertaining Story

+Fun and rewarding unlockables

 

-Music is too epic for my taste(but thankfully, you can unlock the original music and choose that over the new soundtrack)

It feels like everyone in the world loved it but me. I thought the animations were even worse than Telltale games and that bugged from the first episode. Everyone seemed so robotic. And as a fan of time travel stories, the ending was a complete letdown. Edit: To be fair, I have to give it credit for keeping me optimistic until that point.

Even though I'm a 30 year old male (as of typing this), I agree that Life Is Strange had terrible animations, art style and the voice acting was either great or super terrible.

I think why it became so popular is because it does one thing right, I'm not sure if I can explain this well enough for I'll try...

Life Is Strange seems to deal with controversial issues that alot of people - especially young girls - experience today. Whether that would be being a victim of parental neglect, abuse, sexual assault, suicide, drug abuse, disability, death etc. Life Is Strange covers these issues no holds barred and yet still does it elegantly.

I did appreciate that at the end of the game it had a message that said "If you felt anything after playing Life Is Strange, if you were a victim of any like situations, please click the link and join one of the support groups" or something similar to that affect.

I know there are other games that deal with these types of issues but none of them to this extent or realism that I've seen - closest thing would be Oxenfree I'd say. The characters in Life Is Strange are surprisingly deep and relatable but maybe it depends on what generation you are from. Kate Marsh reminded me instantly of an ex-gf I had so that gave some feeling of familiarity and pity.

But my wife couldn't play the game because it was too emotional for her. Which is sad because I thought it was made for her. Understandable though. Idk, I really loved the characters, Max felt genuine and Chloe was hard for me not to care for by end of game.

I liked it a lot because it kind of reminded me of my youth in some weird kind of way. Well, at least the school part and stuff. It just gave these feelings. That emo-hipster stuff and the soundtrack music was great. I didn't really liked the final episode, though. Somehow everything was falling apart at that point.

 

Didn't mind the animations and such at all. It just wasn't an important factor for me. If I hadn't read about the criticism, I probably would have barely noticed it.

Tried out Destiny 2 beta. It's ok, but i wish there were other PVP modes to play instead of Control and that Plant charges/protect stations mode. That way i would have spent more time in it. Now i'll just play it if anyone invites me back in. Still buying the retail of course, that'll have the content i want.

Did you enjoy the first game? I'm still well on the fence about this one and solo play content.
