Re: The finest game soundtracks... ever!

@David, Not hearing the Bioshock Infinite soundtrack isn't quite as egregious as when a friend of mine managed to play through all of Portal with the sound entirely turned off. He asked me later why everyone thought it was such a hilarious game. I just facepalmed.

Re: Close but no Cigar (Games that just miss the mark)

My expectations for Infinite were mainly based on the first Bioshock, which nailed the mix of action, story, and atmosphere. I felt like I was a part of the game. Bioshock Infinite, while it looked nice, seemed more like an amusement park attraction with really repetitive gameplay.

Re: Close but no Cigar (Games that just miss the mark)

Bioshock Infinite was a bit of a chore to get through. I remember thinking multiple times while playing how much I would love a game with a similar visual sense and setting, but get rid of all of the action, and make it more of a narrative puzzle game. Interestingly enough, I think the opening minut...

Re: Gamescom 2014

Though Seith hasn't committed to E3 or another conference, I'm fairly sure that we'll be there. If you can make it, that would be terrific! :D If you guys come to a conference here in the U.S. I'll try my hardest to be there. The skype thing didn't work for me, mostly because of the time difference.

Re: What are you currently listening to?

I've always wanted a hang drum. Unfortunately they cost quite a bit, here's a post on how (not) to get one: http://lostmoya.wordpress.com/2007/08/15/how-not-to-buy-a-hang-drum/ So I've been listening to what may be the greatest animated film score to date, How to Train Your Dragon 2 (previously my f...

What are you currently listening to?

Inspired by the extremely interesting "What are you currently eating?" thread, I figured I would make one based around my greatest obsession, music. I warn you, I may get a bit technical on occasion. :geek: Let us know what you're currently listening to (or have been listening to a lot recently)! I ...

Re: Great video game deals and sales - on now

@David, I recommend playing World of Goo as soon as possible. It's quite fun, but also manages to create a profound emotional connection in a way few other games I've played have. It has very deep messages about consumerism, corporate corruption, and hope in the face of disaster, and pulls it off in...

Re: [Possible Spoilers] Among The Sleep

I also was an original backer for the game, and while I haven't had a ton of time to play, have played about 1.5 hours. I play a ton of horror games (recently finished Outlast/Whistleblower), and this one wins in the creepy suspense department by far. There's something about playing as a child that ...

Re: Who'll visit the GOAT stand: Gamescom, Cologne, August 1

But at the conference, if you like, we could live-video on Skype with you to say 'hi!', then hold up the camera so you can see the GOAT stand and have a look around the event while it is happening live. It would be fun to do! :D I'm completely up for this. It would definitely beat sitting around wo...

Re: Who'll visit the GOAT stand: Gamescom, Cologne, August 1

If it wasn't for the cost of plane tickets, I'd very much like to be there.
