    I never played the first Age of Empires, just AoE2 and AoE3. I'm torn on whether to pick up this remaster since I have such a massive backlog, and there aren't exactly slouches of the strategy (or RPG) variety in that backlog: I have StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, Civilization V, Shogun 2, Company of Heroes, and I don't know when I can get to them. But it's been awhile since I played AoE. Nostalgia might win the day. Or I might make the smart decision and just make Civ V my first Civ game and see what all the fuss is about with this franchise.

    It's a crying shame what Microsoft did to most of their studios. They're almost as bad as EA.Edited 2 times. Last edited 48 minutes ago by Unknown

    Artorias and Ciaran from Dark Souls....


    I mean, first you kill the dude because he's failed to stop the abyss and succumbed to it and gone mad. Then Ciaran mourns over the site where you fought him and asks you for his soul, then you CONSUME IT IN FRONT OF HER AND TELL HER TO GET OVER IT CUZ HE'S JUST A BOY AND BOYS COME A DIME A DOZEN AND...

    Or you know, just give it to her which I do all the time. I can't explain it. There's no real benefit to giving her the soul that I can recall and you need all the souls you can get, so like, I don't know, Dark Souls just gets me lol.

    And, later back in the present, if you put off fighting Sif so you could deal with Artorias in the past first, she'll recognize you but still take up arms against you and you have to kill your giant puppy friend who actually helped you beat Manus and beat back the abyss in the past, because she's just protecting her master's grave.

    And then after you brutally murder your friend (an innocent puppy with a sword in her mouth who LIMPS when you hurt her, you disgusting savage animal!), you can circle around his tombstone and find Ciaran's body where she just sat in mourning and died to be with her boyfriend.

    Dark Souls is just a great time for everyone. Lots of happy endings! And you can do it over again in New Game + just murdering puppies. Each playthrough. It's a required boss fight.... SCREW YOU FROM SOFT, SCREW YOU!

    EDIT- if I got anything wrong feel free to tell me because it's been awhile since I last played the first Dark Souls, but I'm sure that's a pretty decent summary

    EDIT 2- Just read a thing, I totally forgot, Artorias was corrupted and gravely injured because he used his shield to protect Sif (who you brutally murder in front of his grave, you disgusting brute).Edited 2 times. Last edited 3 days ago by Unknown

    What's really turned me off from KickStarter is in fact the difficulties of making games. The wait is just brutal. I funded Torment: Tides of Numenera in 2013 because they said by 2014 it'd be ready. I was in my last semester of college in early 2013. THAT CRAP CAME OUT IN 2017 MAN.

    You know what happened in 2017? I quit my job of three years as a business consultant, sat on a lake for two weeks cut off from the world while waiting to hear back from law schools, road-tripped across the freaking country, and started law school at the end of that summer. I went through two phases of my life before Torment: Tides of Numenera released.

    And like, normally, I'd have played it, except it happened to release around the same time as THE GREATEST 3D VIDEOGAME EVER MADE BREATH OF THE GODDAMNED WILD.Edited 3 days ago by Unknown

    This'll be how I experience Persona 5 first I guess. It was also how I experienced Persona 4 first. And that turned out to be my favorite JRPG ever.

    I'm 100% certain he's correct and that our easy access to guns, lack of mental healthcare, and love of the NRA has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    If only there were people in power who could enact change and start the process of doing something about this. But I don't know if anyone like that exists. Until then we should all retweet the gun-humping weirdos who post thoughts and prayers to a make-believe man in the sky and put their heads in the sand again afterwards. Meanwhile their supporters, the faux-philosophers of our modern era, OH SO INTELLIGENTLY post comments and tweets that we don't need stricter gun control laws because "like people will still like break the law, bro"

    Truly spectacular stuff. Thoughts and prayers until the next one. Ad nauseum. Welcome to the USA.Edited 3 days ago by Unknown

    We need a Call of Duty movie about as much as we needed a sequel to Sicario. This is basically the perfect match.

    Not sure if I'll be picking anything up or not. I'm on a backlog mission from God and Dark Souls 2 is the next victi... I'm Dark Souls 2's next victim. But if there's an amazing sale price on Nier I'll probably pull the trigger.

    Interesting that Titanfall 2 made the list but Doom didn't. I honestly can't decide which is the better representative of the modern FPS campaign because they're both so different but so brilliant. At least TItanfall 2 making the list gives a lesser-played game more recognition, so I respect that.

    As someone who doesn't own a PS4, Bloodborne remains the most exciting reason to purchase that system. Persona 5 is available as well, but deep down I'm holding out for a Switch version of that game. But Bloodborne is the business, and I've been trying to get my friends to buy it so that I can just play it on their PS4s but apparently I'm "the gamer" of our group so really they're just surprised I don't have a PS4 lol

    Oh well, maybe one day I'll get to it.

    Screw this noise. How about making a game worth buying Ubisoft? I haven't bought one of your titles in almost five years. Make those quality first and then worry about your stupid lootboxes.
