  1. A game where quite likely one dev asked: "What is our target audience?" and the other dev replied "Keyrock."

  2. The impact of not taking revenge at the end of a game to break the cycle is definitely undercut by the bloody trail of dozens upon dozens of dead bodies Ellie creates on the way to the final confrontation. It's similar in how at the end of Man of Steel Superman saves the one family and has to kill Zod to do it. Even if you don't think about the half dozen ways Supes could have saved the family that didn't involve snapping Zod's neck, the impact of saving that one family of 4 is severely undercut by the 25 mile radius of complete and utter destruction and the hundreds of thousands of mangled, s

  3. Feel free if you'd like to post about a time (there are probably many) when Boeroer un-stuck you from a difficult situation in Deadfire, or opened your mind to new possibilities with a fantastic new build/combo of mechanics. For me I must say it was back in PoE 1 with his adorable Bilestomper build. What a delight this little dude was! @Boeroer here is a cake made of cheese for you on behalf of this community:

  4. TLOU II has the same basic problem a lot of games have* with them trying to Say Something Significant and it being done stupidly. On one hand, it tells you to feel bad about seeking revenge and tries to say something about its futility/ circularity. On the other, there's only one way to actually play the game, and that involves... seeking revenge. The only way not to be lectured to about morality is to destroy the disk on youtube. And then you get lectured about a different kind of morality, I guess. *Case study being Bioshock, point out that the game is on rails plot wise and you're forc

  5. I went to the dump this morning. There’s no trash pick up where I live so I have to bring my trash to them. Anyway someone left a very beaten up but solid wood kitchen dining table and two chairs. So after I dumped my trash I put them in the back of the truck. They’re in my barn now getting ready to have whatever varnish is on them stripped off, sand down and see if we can fix them up and refinish them. anyway It occurred to me I have officially hit rock bottom. You know you’re there when you’re actually bringing stuff back from the dump rather than to it LOL

  7. Wind Path Cantor Helwalker/Skald Cantor build Great crowd control and nuking power with good weapon damage on top. Sprint around the battlefield at high speed, incapacitating and dismantling enemies in groups or one by one. Room for exciting variants to suit personal taste/playstyle. Not intended for solo. Introduction: I LOVE the Cantor multiclass. Firstly because it has such an incredible flavour: real monks do chant as part of religious rituals, so the Monk fantasy and Chanter fantasy blend together seamlessly. When it comes to gameplay mechanics,

  8. Sunny is feeling a lot better I'm happy to say! She is almost back to her old energetic self. That new drug might be a little pricey but it was worth every penny. I wish they had suggested it right from the stat.

  9. It's a 5-minute walk from my house to the Pub and it's a 45-minute walk from the Pub to my house. The difference is staggering.

  10. Yep. Albeit there are a lot of GOTY awards given out, so there are a lot more than one GOTY each Y. It was, by some. GOTY awards are very rarely popularity contests among people who play the games, generally they're popularity contests among those who review games, at the entity giving the awards. And there is often a large disconnect between what reviewers think and what gamers think. It also has to be said that (1) all too often game reviewers wish they were doing anything other than something as mundane, trivial and outright boring as reviewing games and (2) because of that rev

  13. I guess it depends on your definition of backwards...there have been a number of advanced for their time civilizations in Africa. Egypt/Kemet in North Africa which had grown from the Tasian, Badari, Amaranti, Gerza lands, plus trade partner/occasional subject/occasional ruler Nubia/Kush are examples of advanced civilizations in Africa. North Africa was also home of Carthage that managed to hold off the Roman empire for awhile and was a pretty remarkable country. While the land of Punt is still speculative, I believe the general current consensus puts it in east Africa (Ethiopia/Eritr
