    I found Trevor repulsive. I liked Michael.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Any suggestions? on the Games Discussion board

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Why not get the Director's cut with the superior boss battles and the DLC. It's one of the greatest games you didn't list.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Why is it too soon to speculate the future of consoles? on the Games Discussion board

    Because we don't even know what the future of this generation will be. Why compound that uncertainty?

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Looking to start a podcast! on the Games Discussion board

    I used to do a podcast. It was fun, but it took about 8 hours a week and we got about 100 listeners. So best of luck, but temper your expectations. Also, why limit it to old games? You could do ol...

    I wouldn't want to have a career at GameStop.

    Also, according to Microsoft, there will be a major announcement at E3 in a couple of months that they say will, "... make everyone very happy." So there's that. I foresee a price drop.

    That's interesting. Too bad the game is so unremarkable.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Verdict on ESO? on the System Wars board

    WoW committed suicide... no need to kill it. As a 'what WoW-used-to-be Killer', I'd say ESO failed, but nothing will recapture those days. I am not into MMOs, and have some curiosity for this title...

    It's selling better than the PS3 or the 360 did at the same point in it's lifespan. It's selling 60% more than the Xbox 360 did during the same timeframe, in fact. It seems hard for people here to ...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Virtual Reality is a joke and dumb on the PlayStation Discussion board

    I'm excited about it. I enjoy immersive technologies like 3D and surround sound currently, and see this as the next logical step. I worry about being isolated, but I just see it like anything else....

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Will XBone sell 10m its first year like 360? on the System Wars board

    They say it's selling 60% faster than the Xbox 360 in the same time frame, so I think it's likely.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Rape on the Games Discussion board

    The sexuality in the Metal Gear series has always been phallocentric and nascent... and while this latest example is nothing new, it does delve into some particularly dark territory even for Kojima. I...

    I don't really care about the UI... I just open it up and click on whatever game and that's it. I SURE don't use it for browsing or anything like that. The shortcut for WiFi etc. is handy. I don'...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic On the fence about Infamous:SS on the PlayStation Discussion board

    It's a really great looking game with some improvements to the series in the Gameplay department, but the story is so-so, and it does get rather 'samey' by the end. I will remember it as a graphical...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Why Steam isn't a big hit in Japan on the System Wars board

    This is an easy one... people don't play a lot of PC games in Japan. That's really all you need to know. It's the land of handhelds.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic How The Evil Within Fails at Horror (IGN) on the System Wars board

    Maybe this criticism comes from comparisons to things like Amnesia. By that standard, anything with guns is insufficient. Personally, I really enjoy some of the horror games that let you shoot. De...
