Re: I need a Game Recommendation

Hello everyone. I hope you guys don't mind if I use this thread to ask about certain games as opposed to recommendations (though if you feel that based on the games I ask I may like some other games, please go ahead). I've been hearing really good things about the Fallout games, and from what I've r...

Re: Bioshock Infinite

Columbia and its citizens are never made to be believable or relatable, as you mentioned. They just are. I had the opposite problem- I thought that the Columbians were too relatable. You basically show up to an awesome functioning city, murder everyone important, and supply weapons to a revolution ...

Re: Bioshock Infinite

Maybe it was just me, but I felt the game kind of penalized you in the last battle if you didn't get good weapons by the time you reach it. I think I had the machine gun and the repeater, and for the life of me I couldn't get past that fight. I'm sure the battle wasn't that difficult and I'm just no...

Hi! I'm doing a project in school about how people see different languages, what their relationship to them are, etc. So well, I'd need some material.

I am not much of an NFL fan and I don't have any preference/dislike for either team, but it would be sad to see SF lose since they're the only team to have gone to multiple superbowls and never lose. I know streaks end and records get broken and all that, but still.
