December 13th.  I feel like it's impending doom at this point...

Episode 87 is live!  Enjoy, and be sure to give us some ratings on iTunes so we can hit 100 this year!

Running on an R9 280x, and the game looks pretty damn great.  I turned down textures and everything else to high so I get a good 60 fps unless i'm in an area with a lot of people.  Wouldn't surprise me if that goes up a bit when they release the Mantle API for ATI cards.

^Going to have to slightly disagree on the above when it comes to DSII's DLC.  Some of those encounters are just annoying and lack some of the grace and elegance of the other two games.  I didn't find the murder pit in DLC2 to be all that great.  Just had to cheese the enemies to beat them by shooting arrows from above.  Also, the dudes who spit lava out of their shoulders were push overs using the same technique.  It just feels like some of those things weren't thought through during development.  That just my opinion, though, and I seem to be in the minority of fans who liked the main game of DSII but hated the DLC.

I just reviewed Lords of the Fallen for the site. 

Long story short, it's not very good.  Cool ideas but some serious balancing problems and the whole thing is mighty glitchy.

Yep, all good vibes around here.  Except for that whole going to the wrong university in the SEC.  We all can't be perfect...

...and clearly that applies to my Gamecocks this year.

...I can still change your grade and report it to that fly-by-night institution of yours, Crispy.

I think the main game on NG is pretty easy (with a few exceptionally hard bosses).  NG+ is a whole different beast, however, and the DLC is murderously hard to the point of insanity.  Then again, DSII is pretty easy if you've had a lot of time with the mechanics and know what's expected of you.  Figure it would be the same way for someone going from II to I.  The more experience you have with the games the better you should be at them.

Now you know my pain, DPB.

Episode 86 is live.  Enjoy!

Yep, Chapter 1 was kind of a disaster.  He got me three or four times and I was incredibly frustrated. 

Is there an option to turn down the sensitivity on movement?  I find that Sebastian is a little too fixed on running, as you have to just barely press the analog stick to make him walk, and any further makes him run.

Love the resource stuff and the stealth feels fair and very visceral.  The atmosphere is outstanding!  Really feels like the REmake and RE4, which is what I wanted!

Well, I like it so far!  Playing on PC and it's locked to a solid 30 fps on my i7, 12 GB and R9 280x system.  There are some dips here and there, but nothing on the level of the console versions.  It crashed on me twice, though.  I unlocked the framerate and it couldn't hold 60 at all.  Hovered around 40-45 and felt worse than the solid thirty as a result. 

Not surprised by the scattered review scores.  Silent Hill 2 had a similar response at first, and I think most of it comes from gameplay decisions that some people will have serious problems with.  I find it funny that the game is so similar to The Last of Us in a lot of way, however.  The basic stealth, resource game, and combat are all very similar.  Shooting takes some getting used to, as enemies are very hard to hit up close.  Keep them far away and rely on stealth!

Latest trailer is outstanding, but there's lots of spoilers when it comes to environments and such.  Watch with caution!

...8.5 over here.

Much more reasonable system requirements just came out, though I'm sure people will still complain because they say you may not be able to run the game at 1080p with a 1 GB card.  Still, at least they heard the complaints and went back on their policy of only posting the true experience requirements.
