Because no one protected Ben from Kingdom Heartache, they gotta take their bumps like everyone else. But Fright or Shite is great, are you high on drugs???

Just go with the tried and true method of treating content you find bad/boring as a podcast while you do other stuff. Even at its worst it's a Vinny/Abby shooting the shit vehicle which is great. (Im enjoying it a lot FWIW).

As I said in the previous thread.

I thought episode 2 was much better than the first. Vinny art stories and tons of stuff to look at and riff on.

Yeah, I'm kind of playing it up here, but I do think there to pull off a 2 man video series you either need the game itself to be compelling or the duo really needs to hit it off. Kingdom Heartache fails at both points, the XCom series does both decently, and Six Crazy Frights is just Vinny and Abby talking and the game contributing almost nothing. Which makes the premise itself kind of void.

Real late in getting back to this reply but here's what I've loved this year:


-Zelda (one of the best open world experiences I've ever had, period)
-Resident Evil 7 (best one in the series for like a decade)
-Destiny 2 (even with the bad raid)
-Horizon (loved the setting)
-NieR (didn't fall in love with the game, but I recognize how it tells a story through the video game medium like few others have)
-Cuphead (best style of the past decade)
-Uncharted: LL (This game cemented the fact that I think Naughty Dog is the best video game developer)
-PUBG (even if it doesn't get an official release it's likely going to change the landscape of multiplayer gaming for the next several years)
-Sonic Mania (Finally a good sonic game!)
-Mario + Rabbids (hopefully it's a signal for how nintendo will be taking chances with it's core franchises moving forward)
-Hellblade (Really like what it's doing with it's story telling)
-Nioh (Somebody besides From Software gets this type of game right)
-BONUS: The Nintendo Switch was released this year... Probably going to be my favorite Nintendo platform since the N64

I'm still WAY behind on playing games, probably have about a dozen games that came out this year that are still on my wishlist.


AND WE'RE NOT EVEN HALFWAY THROUGH OCTOBER YET! Still got tons of game to go...

So while it might not be "transcendent" I'm just looking for games that are fun to play.

The secret is this (and to some extent the rest of GAF) basically being my main social network instead of Twitter, or the FatT Discord as was the case for a little, for the past couple months.

I'm sure it'll pass and I'll be much less active again at some point.

Eh, I've enjoyed both, particularly as I've never really seen this much of either game (though I think I saw that LoF QL?). I do think they should have busted out a guide sooner for PT, though.

I do wonder if all the games they picked are this type? I'm still hoping that Abby actually using Itch means we might get Anatomy...
