let's see if tim can sell me on forza horizon 4, a candidate for my biannual Fancy Graphics Game Impulse Purchase

ciderpress, Thursday, 27 September 2018 21:34 (eleven months ago) link

I like his series about translating Final Fantasy VII, funny and informative.

Tim made me want Forza Horizon and it’s not a thing I should want.

I can't tell if I prefer exasperated Tim or chill Tim

the two types of tim rogers content i love are his scripted review vids that all take poetic turns in the 2nd half (e.g. hyrule warriors, forza horizon 4) and his on-site vids from E3/conventions

Does not disappoint.

This also reminds me that I need to 1) go back and beat Celeste & 2) pick up Obra Dinn ASAP

days of being riled (zchyrs), Wednesday, 19 December 2018 00:57 (nine months ago) link

those two are tied for my goty

ciderpress, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:03 (nine months ago) link

i downloaded obra dinn the other day and i'm trying to con my partner into trying it out with me tonight!

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:28 (nine months ago) link

and rogers' #1 same as mine too. it was a good year for games!

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 01:28 (nine months ago) link

kinda sold on this guy

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 19 December 2018 02:20 (nine months ago) link

Obra Dinn is awesome btw, and i don't think i will ever come close to figuring out the fates of everyone

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 04:25 (nine months ago) link

I’m going to sit on my hands on that one for a while owing to my Switch Only policy but I’ll stop waiting in a year or so. I loved Papers Please, what a game.

good list. hollow knight s/b #1 tho

||||||||, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 08:19 (nine months ago) link

He even says there's nothing wrong with it and struggles to find a complaint (too dark to play on the NYC subway, lol), so at the least it should be higher!

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 13:27 (nine months ago) link

Sheesh it’s not like a scientific ranking.

I agree with him though: Hollow Knight is very good and Celeste is the best platforming video game and basically a perfect realization of what video games are good at

I have measured out my life in coffee shop loyalty cards (silby), Wednesday, 19 December 2018 17:18 (nine months ago) link

Hollow Knight is also a 2017 game

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 17:51 (nine months ago) link

hollow knight is low b/c he played it last year jeez yall didn't listen to all 44 minutes did you xp

||||||||, Wednesday, 19 December 2018 17:55 (nine months ago) link

of course I paid attention to all 44 minutes, and I might do it over again!

it's possible that talking-fast-over-a-video is him at his finest.

This is a terrible thing to say about anyone, but having a look at the Shadow of the Tomb Raider video you might have it right.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 20 December 2018 13:55 (nine months ago) link

The sheer amount of video editing he must do for these is pretty intense

his story about jonathan blow (#4, braid) is interesting and kind of sad

yeah, i don't really like disney that much so i got really bored about 3 hours into the first game and never came back

Karl Malone, Thursday, 24 January 2019 21:19 (seven months ago) link

lol, though, that video is great, one of his very best

Karl Malone, Friday, 25 January 2019 04:50 (seven months ago) link

he's pretty OTM there

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 25 January 2019 19:47 (seven months ago) link

lol after all that kotaku made him do their review of the game anyway

It’s good

i wish it was a video review, i much prefer him in video format

ciderpress, Sunday, 27 January 2019 00:58 (seven months ago) link

Those take him like seventy times as long is the thing. I still like his writing. I want his novel to come out.

Norm’s Superego (silby), Sunday, 27 January 2019 00:59 (seven months ago) link

thats not a scripted review its just bonus footage & ad-libbing

ciderpress, Monday, 28 January 2019 22:03 (seven months ago) link

Tim Rogers ad libbing is more entertaining than most prepared material tbf

Norm’s Superego (silby), Monday, 28 January 2019 22:27 (seven months ago) link

Another person who rules is Gita imo

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 28 January 2019 22:53 (seven months ago) link

I dig the whole Kotaku crew; Paul Tamayo seems like a very chill dude

days of being riled (zchyrs), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 18:21 (seven months ago) link

However, Tim is the only one who I'll read a novella-length review of a game I have no interest in ever playing (e.g., Kingdom Hearts)

sold me on it
i prefer not to watch him talk though, triggers some rough highschool flashbacks

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 6 August 2019 16:23 (one month ago) link

oh dear

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Tuesday, 6 August 2019 16:43 (one month ago) link

you went to hs with him? or just generally?

also, i guess related (ppl who went to school with tim) did anyone ever listen to the insert credit podcast way back when he talked about going to college with j*red f*gle? because holy fuck. i think it was a couple years before dude got caught being a creep and tim just talks for 15 minutes about how much of a creep dude was

no i didn't actually go to school with TR, I just mean to say i and most of my friends were luminous cave newts in glasses who would expostulate nonstop with one another in eltingville-style logorrhea-offs about video games and seeing him free verse about kojima gives me the fear that there's a pop quiz in spanish

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 6 August 2019 20:46 (one month ago) link

Happy to listen to him talk though! can just pass on including his face in the story. no offense!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 6 August 2019 20:47 (one month ago) link

i totally get that. there's nothing that throws me into a rage faster than someone who acts like me at some previous stage in my life. it's like FUCK OFF MAN

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 6 August 2019 21:01 (one month ago) link

yep. i have no greater scorn for anything than what i used to be. Looking forward to hating current me in the future.

That was really enjoyable. "In other words, like all video games, Death Stranding is *exactly* like Dark Souls. It should be called 'Tark Souls.'" Extra amusing to me because I've never played any Metal Gear games and only know them from one or two iterations of Smash Brothers, where the guy always reminds me of Snake Eyes from GI Joe, and what few clips I've seen of this one seem the farthest from a sneaky ninja assassin game, so it's hard for me to make a connection between that concept and whatever the hell this game seems to be. So I guess I'm ... excited? Curious? Certainly entertained by the simmering hype.

More people should review games months before they play them.
