    Both the download and the embed are busted for me. Can't get it to play at all.

  • AtheistPreacher posted a message in the forum topic Post Your Screenshots!. on the Elden Ring board

    I can't resist sharing some screens of Leyndell, Royal Capital. This is possibly my new favorite area in the entirety of From Software's oeuvre, at least in terms of aesthetics.That includes the music...

    @ares42: @brian_:FWIW I agree with both of you. I had written the bit in my response about the podcast angle before I even read @brian_'s post, but I think we're simpatico there.And as for what @ares4...

    @thepanzini: For the most part, see my post above. But just to repeat in shorter, TLDR terms: there are problems with both the "enthusiast" and "newcomer" approaches to reviews. The former preaches to...

    @zombiepie: You say you want to "push me on this issue," but I'm not sure you really have.Yes, I question the usefulness of Haywald's review in this case, because I would posit that you didn't really ...

    I guess I feel I should say follow-up my previous post and flesh this idea out a bit.While it's easy to say that there should be more "newcomers" reviewing games, and while I agree that this is an app...

    I agree that most reviews are written by enthusiasts. We could argue about the merits of that, e.g., assigning someone to review a game in a genre that they've never liked in the first place might be ...

    @bigsocrates said: @atheistpreacher: Likewise people come to From Software games specifically because they know From doesn't care about their time...I still thing it's just bad phrasing, period, becau...

  • AtheistPreacher posted a message on the post Jeff, Jeff, and Jan Talk About Elden Ring!.

    As an unabashed fanboy of the King's Field games, I loved how @jeff said at 53:59 that "Finally they've reclaimed the King's Field roots by putting more 'field' into it." Put that on the back of the b...

  • AtheistPreacher posted a message in the forum topic The Reviews Are In. on the Elden Ring board

    @bigsocrates: But see, the way you're using the phrase "not respecting a player's time" to me just reinforces @ragtagbag's point. It is an inherently negative phrase. No one could look at that phrase ...

    @ajamafalous said: I'm trying to avoid reading reviews in case I do play it, but: does anyone who has read some have an impression of whether I'd like this game or not? Dark Souls 1 is one of my top 5...

    @wollywoo: Yeah, in that case I think we just have different tastes. Like, I loved Witcher 3 to death. And while I can enjoy the occasional JRPG character full of sunshine and the power of friendship,...

    @zombiepie: That's one way to see it. I guess the story aspect is something I tend to overlook because I'm there for the gameplay and really don't care about the story. I mean, I've been known to like...
