  1. So I just found out that Chivalry II was announced as an EGS exclusive... But Mordhau already exists on Steam and has that market on lockdown with better mechanics than Chivalry, so...

  2. That was... Surprisingly good. They completely fucking wasted a Smash DLC slot with the DQ rep, though.

      It was to market the franchise to the west, and give japan a character they like for once. Nintendo with smash typically prioritize western popular characters 

  3. They'd also be picking a really bad time to release in the US without reworking how the F2P elements work, because of the anti-loot box bill on its way through Congress. Though, the licensing stuff isn't gonna be that much of an issue if the Phantasy Star Portable games managed to do it. I'm really just interested in the Fate cosmetics, and they made into the Portables just fine. Though, I'm wondering if there's gonna be JP account transfers or do we have to start all over again.
  4. Star Wars: Fallen Order looks incredibly disappointing. All they had to do was make a spiritual sequel to Jedi Academy, for pete's sake, and yet this doesn't even remotely reach that bar.

      More like Fallen Stock amirite

  5. It seems MS' upcoming press conference is leakier than a sinking boat.

      What else leaked?

      What was leaked?

  6. So this probably is of most interest to a gaming-focused forum like this, so... The text of the anti-loot box bill proposed by Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) is available online. It is being co-sponsored by two Democrats. This could be tightened up just a little, but analysis so far basically confirms that this bill, if it passes, will basically kill loot boxes and pay-to-win microtransactions outright. The intent is to prevent exposure of loot boxes to kids, but in practice it'll force games with loot boxes to have an adults-only rating, which is a kiss of death for games outside of Steam these days - when push comes to shove, I expect that devs and pubs will junk loot boxes and P2W stuff rather than risk losing a big chunk of their audience. If this passes, this will basically force a fuckton of games, especially most of the free-to-play market, to completely change their monetization strategies. Asia-only games will continue to have gacha and such until Japan follows the US' lead.
  7. Amash apparently breaks rank regularly, so his colleagues really shouldn't be surprised. He may be a piece of shit libertarian, but he's a principled piece of shit libertarian, and his analysis of the Mueller Report is spot on. He was the only Republican who actually used his time during the Cohen hearings to actually ask him relevant questions rather than grandstand about nonsense bullshit. What happens next is gonna be the fun part. Amash is from Michigan, in a seat that isn't solidly red, so anyone trying to challenge him from the right might honestly be making it harder for themselves to retain that seat for the GOP if they somehow win the primary.
  8. I had to look up what the TSR teams were and I was reminded that Team Vector is such a baffling assemblage (Vector, Silver and Blaze? Really?) that I still can't comprehend why they put those three characters together. Vector already has the Chaotix, and I really don't get Sega's insistence on pairing Blaze and Silver whenever the opportunity arises (the only time those two have ever had any kind of chemistry is in that one story in the IDW Annual, even if I disregard the fact that the pairing reminds me of the garbage fire that was Sonic 06 and how it derailed Blaze's backstory for a while).

      Atleast it gives us a reason to see certain characters interact when they normally wouldn't.

      Some of the team choices were questionable really.

  9. Yeah, I consider them canon, but they could literally take places in virtually any point in the "continuity", for what worth that word has with Sonic these days. It's implied that Sonic might've taken on the role of Aladdin in Secret Rings, and he definitely took on the role of King Arthur in Black Knight, but they could be roles he unknowingly filled during his adventures rather than really becoming the characters themselves. Though, in the case of the latter, it's only fitting that he leaves the world of the story at the end, because that's literally what King Arthur does - returning Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake and disappearing from the world until the time comes again for him to return to save it.
  10. Yeah, it seems weirdly puzzling logic to try and push the Storybook games out of continuity with. I for one enjoyed the reference, and I do open it leaves the door open for additional opportunities, such as, well, revisiting the Storybook worlds. I would actually be down for Sonic seeking non-scientific solutions to the problem of the Zombot plague if Tails can't cure it in time, such as using the World Rings to empower a wish by Shahra or using the power of Excalibur's scabbard to purge the infection, and perhaps using the World Rings/Excalibur to combat Eggman with the Chaos Emeralds if needed. (And yes, Exalibur's scabbard is depicted as a corrupting influence in Black Knight, but that aspect is honestly out of step with the Arthurian mythos and the vast majority of depictions of the scabbard in general, and the titular Black Knight isn't the 'real' King Arthur anyway, so it's probably that said corruption is really just misuse of its power driven through temptation by unworthy individuals, since Excalibur and its scabbard was meant to be owned by the true Once and Future King, aka Sonic.)
  11. Crazy idea: Sonic and The Black Knight except everyone all the story characters are their Fate counterparts, Merlina inherits Fou from her grandfather, Modred is an ally (I think she and Sonic would actually get along), and the titular black knight is actually real but it's Alter Lancer!Arturia who then switches to Saber Alter mode for the second phase of the climactic battle, and both Sonic and Mordred have to team up to beat her. The credits sequence involves a DMC/Bayonetta-style interactive duel with Mordred.

  12. Wait, we're talking about Penders again? What'd he do this ti-

    Oh. Oh noooooooooooooo.

  13. So I just received my 8bitdo M30 controller from Playasia and it turns out I had ordered the 2.4g version (aka the wireless MG/Genesis version), when I actually wanted the Bluetooth version. I didn't even realize there was two versions. FML. At least they're happy with refunding it if I send it back.

  14. I don't think anyone can top this one. The best April Fools jokes for me are the ones that make you legitimately doubt if it's actually fake even when you know it is ahead of time. Like... This looks like an actual legit Splatoon mobile spin-off, even if there are small details that indicate lack of polish, mainly animations.
  15. To be fair, the owner posted on Reddit and he was a very good sport about it and was flattered. It wasn't Scott's fault, though, in any case. In any case, though, it's nice to finally have an official FNAF game with real-time 3D visuals.
