Reminder for BrisGAF: Free Comic Book Day is May 7, I'll be at Secret Identity giving out comics and sketches and hi-fives!

Whereabouts is that out of curiosity. I'll be in brisvegas that weekend. Idk if I could get my bro or fengshuifever to drive me though lol.

This reminds me, I still haven't played Bloodborne. It still blows my mind that GAF voted it GOTY over Witcher 3, it must be absolutely incredible.

I never played Remember Me but I am very much enjoying Life is Strange. You'll actually be able to tell pretty easily whether or not you'll enjoy it by watching the intro.

The dialogue is hella jank at times but that's what happens when adult French people try to write for middle American teenagers I guess.

Had a PS4 since Dec. It's still in the box. Ratchet will probably be the first game I play on it. Hope it's good. So hope it's good.

wrap it up. we're done here. it was a nice run we had, but nope.

game? Quantum Break: I finished it over the weekend and really, really enjoyed it. I did find that the FMV stuff grated on me, since it has a mostly different cast telliing an almost parallel story (ie cheaper unknowns) with only a few shots of the main cast interspersed. I stopped watching around the third one.
The game itself was great. It's not really a plain shooter more Uncharted platforming combined with Force Unleashed style powers and Alan Wake puzzle shooting (combining the powers with the shooting- you can't get very far with shooting alone). The story is a bit silly but the in-game storytelling is nicely done. there's even one 'feel' at the very end the woman who gets sent back in the past for 10 years and then dies is seen alive in one time travel moment and you can see a lovely bit of mocapped acting when Jack thinks about saving her but decides he shouldn't. Its done with a look and it works. Aidan Gillan is totally wooden, though.

I tried to play Elite Dangerous and got about 1/2 way through the first tute shooting barrels before quitting and starting a replay of Portal 2.

OMG that game has yet to be REKT for gameplay and LOLZ IMHO.

Ninja Scroll got me into anime before I knew it was anime. I think I know of demon city, it might've been an ad on sbs before or after ninja scroll. I'll have to check out the rest of the names you mentioned

I don't know about it not being very good but I do think it is far too similar when compared to the other games. Felt like I've been through all these exact same environments before.

I've been playing Tree of Saviour instead lately, I've been looking for an mmo fix and this seems to do it pretty well.

Also hooray for more (cheap) boardgames, I picked up tash-kalar, Elysium and Pathfinder Rise of the runelords base set for about $30 ea and they finally arrived today.

If a lamington needs jam then it's a failure. If you want to cut it in half and add jam, like with a Victoria sponge, then have at it.

It's my game of the forever. Just as a narrative experience, it is peerless in gaming. I love Telltale games (particularly Tales of the Borderlands) but it leaves Telltale for dead.

Very true, the flavouring has been way too small for a few years too. Someone said previously that they redid them a few years back which I can agree with. 2005ish was the GOAT year for Shapes I think.

Not that bad but not GOTY material for 2014 considering some of the other games that came out.

It really falls flat on enemy encounter/design, at least compared to the other games IMO.

That is why I didn't think it was very good. I've played the shit out of Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2 and Bloodborne. I want new ideas, not just rehashes of old ones.

Even gameplay-wise, the ability to fully explore the dialogue trees is amazing. Chloe's goofy smile and general thickness grates on me though.

I did really love it and enjoy more than most Telltale games. Part of was the whole teen drama aspect, that made it feel more grounded and different than any Telltale thing. Probably helps that I've watched way too much teen drama, both in live action and anime.

I'd kind of be waiting as I'm unsure how the hdr format wars is going. Well unless you buy a tv with both formats.

Yeah. Theres a generic base format called HDR10 and theres Dolby Vision. From what I understand some tvs support one and not the other and content I guess will be the same. Curious to see how it shakes out. With content on BD DTS-HD MA seems to have beaten TrueHD....so maybe Dolby will lose out again.
