Re: Walking Dead Season 2 (PC)

I thought Season 2 was really good...A certain character's decline into inhumanity was an profound tragedy. What made you feel like it was getting worse? I am definitely enjoying season 2 and its choices. The choices I am making may be slowing the characters decline, but generally these games have ...

Re: Walking Dead Season 2 (PC)

The monotony of a series that goes from bad to worse to even worse ad nauseum does demand a breather. I finished two chapters in June and put the game aside for a few months. Perhaps this is why the game is released in chapters. Playing all the chapters at once is like binge watching a tv show - it ...

Re: 2015/9/25: Playstation 4: Until Dawn

LIke our friend Rev, I also enjoyed this review, and it got me excited too. You occasionally get feedback for rating lower than the larger review sites, but here you are above the curve with a game you really enjoyed. For a long delayed PS Move game, it seems to have benefited by the delay immensely...

Re: Amiibos?

I've never seen H.E.R.B.I.E before. I do see the resemblance. When I was a kid my stepdad bought me a Disney's Black Hole lunchbox. ... I really need to watch this movie already. H.E.R.B.I.E has an interesting history about why a cute robot replaced the Human Torch in the cartoon. The cartoon never...

Re: Fear of the Walking Dead

People need to die! And lots of people. Like 300 million people in the US alone if Rick's experience in Georgia is anything to go by. Its like "Here is a school of 1000 kids...now let's show zombie violence so extreme that only 10 traumatized kids, who had to slaughter other kids, manage to su...

Re: Fear of the Walking Dead

The Battle of Yonkers? Now there's a man who has read the novel World War Z!!! It is a fabulous book. The interview style covering disjointed snippets as a sort of personal edition to a more impersonal government official history is wonderfully engaging. The downed pilot with a 'helpful guide' in L...

Re: Fear of the Walking Dead

I sadly agree. Kirkman originally wrote Rick in a coma so he could skip right to post apocalypse. I thought this series would focus more on the collapse, but the time skip put that hope to bed. I wanted to see the fall of mankind - best I got was a riot. I want exploding nuclear reactors or toxic cl...

Ahem. How about H.E.R.B.I.E. of the 1978 Fantastic Four cartoon? He came earlier, and he probably has forebears too. There is also V.I.N.Cent of Disneys Black Hole, but that is post Herbie. Definately not original to Nintendos R.O.B.

Re: Super Mario Maker

Over in the Review Feedback a side discussion began on whether Super Mario Maker is a game. It just brought back memories of games from a then new really interesting company called EA. Games included Pinball Construction Set, Adventure Construction Set, and Racing Destruction Set. These came out aro...

Re: Article: Which Console Should I Buy?

Just tossing some ideas out. 1) Consider multiplats. This would serve to isolate the WiiU from the others, and the 8th generation seems to be embracing multiplats due to the cost of AAA development. Upcoming games like Witcher 3 and Star Wars Battlefront being only on the PS4 and XboxOne is importan...
