Why would Jim hesitate to sing the theme to Horizon? Why does race of the singer matters? Isn’t that stupid and maybe racist?

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”, not my favorite person in our world’s history, but he is correct when he is correct. 🙂 To quote someone of the oppsite political spectrum: “Es gibt freilich Kommunisten, welche es sich bequem machen und die persönliche Freiheit, die nach ihrer Meinung der Harmonie im Wege steht, leugnen und aufheben wollen; wir aber haben keine Lust, die Gleichheit mit der Freiheit zu erkaufen.“ (Friedrich Engels, Kommunistische Zeitschrift, September 1847) “There are of course communists, who got cozy and who want to deny… Read more »

To answer Laura’s question about having time to play all these games, I get maybe an hour a day on the computer if I’m lucky.
I’m looking at getting Nioh and Horizon Zero Dawn in the next couple of months. I think that people may have a bit more money this time of the year compared to November.

While you pronounce Automata pretty much right…. the way you pronounced Gestalt was skin crawlingly bad, Jim. 🙂

Jim, I say if you have more than five games that you qualify as “outstanding” than just give out more than five awards at the end of the year. Why do we treat five as the magic number? Consider this: One year it’s a particularly good year, and you have 6 games that are outstanding, but you only give out awards to the top 5. The next year is a rubbish year for games, and you really have to scrounge to find 5 games worthy of an award. And it happens that none of the five games you pick are… Read more »

Jim, mate. You’re a lovely, lovely boy.

Please leave the singing to Gavin.

Hey Jim, when you played Binding of Isaac on the PC, did you use the keyboard or controllers? Because maybe your thing on the Switch is just not being used to playing that game in a controller. That’s something that also happened to me, but I got used to it.

If you always used a controller even on the PC, then I don’t know. I haven’t touched the Switch yet.

Huh, I guess I went and bought that there Nier: Atomic Kitten after listening today. And here was me thinking the next game I bought would be Persona 5. Are you sure you’re not taking an unethical commission or something?

Hey I’m still here bro. Yeah, okay that probably isn’t much better than a brain parasite acknowledging thanks for the juicy real estate by whispering sweet nothings into your auditory association area whilst nibbling lovingly on your juicy cerebral cortex, but at least I’m not parroting alternative facts at the same time.

All you peeps seem to be able to play all the cool new games, and I’ve only just gotten round to Life is Strange. I don’t even know why I do this to myself.

For Honor sold really well last month, but it’s current playerbase is pretty lackluster, that game is having an even bigger drop in players then Evolve did, so things are not looking good for that game in the long term. I like shooty soldier games and I still like Andromeda, I thought the intro was fine. I have to say Wildlands is my favorite open-world game of the year so far. Part of the reason why I think it sold so well is because it’s been a fairly long time since the last Ghost Recon game came out. I quite… Read more »

I want it on record you’ll never get rid of me Jim. You can give up on video games entirely and just talk about wet dreams involving Triple H, Stoya, Prowl and Bluestreak, a 3 gallon tub of blackberry flavored lube and buttermilk biscuits and I’ll still be here, complaining you’re going on too much about Dark Souls.

Joycon sounds like a convention, rather than a piece of consumer hardware.

Jim said he gave Nier a 10 but, the review he wrote has a 9/10, which i did find weird with all the praise he gave it

Sorry for the extra comment…

I forgot to mention: Laura, I just got into the Gerudo town in Breath of the Wild and yeah…I am very surprised (in a very positive and good way) that that entire sequence got into a Nintendo game. To me it was good natured humour and it didn’t feel like, “haha look at those people,” it felt more like, “lets all laugh together.” But that’s just my interpretation.

On the subject of “getting into things” – I’m still really surprised so many people just got into the Witcher series in Witcher 2 or 3, without playing 1 or reading the books. Don’t get me wrong, 2 and 3 are great, but I feel that most of my appreciation for those games comes from having a background on the universe before starting.

Also, Gavin I agree, the word, “Joycon” is repulsive. It’s a wretch worthy vile insult to the English language.

I just googled Yoko Taro and found out that the original Nier came out in 2010!

I’ve become so used to annualised sequels being chugged out that this really took me by surprise.

For your Nier consumption Jimbo I would suggest Mr Clemps’ recaps on the youtube. He does a pretty good job of summarizing it all without you having to go back and play some fairly subpar gameplay.

(Without the video link in case I end up in moderation purgatory)

yoko taro is so incredibly funny to watch .. its amazing .. the way he clowns around all the time .. the fucking mask head – only in Japan XD
I just watched some stuff about nier and I ld say anyone who knows it will be quite aware of his tendency to make u play a game repeatedly to fully experience it

Goddamn that intro. I don’t normally listen to fan music, but I may legitimately buy Gavin’s albums now. Or at least the HZD OST.

I didn’t really care for “Hard Cash” so I haven’t looked into it before. That may change once I have money or time.
