  1. Oh I am so fucking gd ready

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      God it looks so good, I can't fucking wait.

  2. I feel so odd about these DP remakes. Like honestly, if it wasn’t for my love of gen 4 I wouldn’t take a second look at these. They just don’t seem to be bring anything new to the table beyond having 3D models and possibly some gameplay tweaks. Maybe I’m remembering things differently but I’m pretty sure every other remake had more going for them.

    Like, they could’ve ported a straight up rom of the games and I’d feel the same way about them.

    and why are they both $60? I know it’s because TPC but like, seriously

      Honestly, as long as they put all the Platinum stuff in, I'm completely fine with them not changing much.

      ...as long as HMs are gone

      Platinum is my favourite Pokémon game, with DP very close behind. These remakes looks pointless. And ugly.

    3. Wraith


      If they veer too close I'd rather them just take another step back and release a gen 4 collection. More and more I'm leaning toward archival releases instead of remakes. 

  3. Now here's my worry with Legends. What if all that gameplay we saw simply took place in a Wild Area? Seeing a lot of talk about them being open world games atm...

      Oh, Legends isn't out already?

      Did you not look at the trailer?

    3. Soniman


      Umm..it's all open world 

    4. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon
    5. Strickerx5


      @SonimanI mean has that been stated anywhere? Because it looks like a Wild Area.

      Call it paranoia but real talk, unless TPC specifically mentioned open-world somewhere I'm going to remain skeptic.

    6. Rusty Spy

      I don't know how much more obvious it could be.

      I do too, since I'm stressing here that it's simply my paranoia at play with this, but at the same time I'm more about holding companies to actual words nowadays than just accepting the obvious.

      because a lot of the time, the obvious isn't exactly known by the company

  4. That was some of the greatest monkey paw hijinks I've ever seen.

  5. A FF7R battle royale... uh huh...


    1. Ryannumber1gamer
    2. Polkadi~☆


      I thought I've seen it all, that maybe Tetris battle royale was the pinnacle.

      How wrong I was...

  6. Both Sony and Nintendo held back their heavy hitters, interesting.

    1. Thigolf


      Held back or just weren't ready to be shown? I think the latter is more likely.

    2. Strickerx5


      Rift Apart is a little over 3 months away. BotW2 is still building off of botw and they haven't said anything about it in over a year. I get the idea here... but gonna slightly press x here.

    3. Thigolf


      Oooh, Ratchet.

      I thought you were referring to Horizon and/or GoW.

    4. Strickerx5


      santa monica can take all the time they want to craft my dad and boi story

    5. Dejimon11


      It's the beginning of the year 

    6. Strickerx5


      no deji i want metriod prime 4 naow

    7. Dejimon11


      Yeah yeah keep pretending that you care about the game 

    8. Strickerx5


      Lol what does that even mean

    9. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Rift Apart got announced, shown off in playable form, and will get released in a shorter amount of time than BOTW2 will. Guess which one inspires more confidence right now.

  7. I'm so glad I held off on playing FF7R.

  8. Trailer for Pixar's Luca. The colors feel so right

      This character designs are very cool, love the mouths.

      Blue Blood

      Why would they go for him when Old Woman has a much more viable moveset? Plus if you dissect Sakurai's tweets, you'll see he's clearing been hinting towards Old Woman for months now.

    2. Teoskaven


      >not wanting Accordian Player


    3. Cuz


      You all realize the police captain that asks you to go find the police captain is the real power player right? 🙃

  10. ... are people allowed to be disappointed by that Direct?

    Not saying I am, I go into these things expecting nothing. But like, are we still in that timeline where any criticism aimed at this company is seen as blasphemy? Just noting for future reference Lol

    1. Strickerx5


      Splatoon 3 looks cool btw. Weird to see Nintendo be somewhat regular with a series other than the main heads for a change but a welcomed weird nonetheless.

    2. StaticMania


      People have to be reminded that a certain event is affecting development

      It's actually no big deal

    3. PaddyFancy


      That certain event hasn't affected Splatoon 3. If you're gonna use it as an excuse, you would forgive the shortcomings of Cyberpunk 2077.

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry



      Seriously speaking, when you're gone a whole year and you suddenly return outta knowhere, people our much more likely to take the bait in putting you on a high expectation pedestal. Plus people keep saying they'd drop bigger bombsells in a general direct than a mini direct, when the only real difference between the two is a direct is a mini direct but longer.

      After what many felt was an arguably barren 2020, and the lack knowledge from the big 3 sequels, they're starved for some big stuff and just want them to break the silence before it breaks them.

    5. StaticMania


      It can't not be affecting Splat the 3rd

      They just had enough time to show partial the intro

    6. Strickerx5


      The pandemic is, of course, a big deal.

      That being said, saw a lot of the same shit in 2019.

    7. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Idk when everyone else recognizes that something isn't for them they kinda just move on to what is. Obsess over "criticizing" stuff that other people can watch and accept just fine like a business analyst would, and you're gonna get side eyes, yeah. Thing is the culture is so widespread in the Nintendo community it comes as a shock that it actually exists when it's brought up, lol

      Plus for me the complaints towards directs have always looked tasteless because these are people making games for years to finally announce them for this specific time frame. Games that are "HYPEEE" don't magically materialize to create the perfect lineup for a subset of fans, so calling out the pack of legitimately good games people worked hard on to create as "bad content" has always seemed incredibly short sighted.

      Especially when it all amounts to a bunch of oldies complaining that the world isn't what it used to be. 😓

  11. Huh, well then

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon
    2. Iko



      Smash newcomer, Zelda news, Kirby news, new 2D Sonic game (yes it's possible they will show it there), Silksong news, and with some luck some news of Metroid Prime 4 too... etc.

      Finally something.

  12. Ohohohoho! This gorge will be your tomb!

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Honestly, if that had worked, "The Tomb of Sonic the Hedgehog" would be a killer attraction at Eggmanland.

    2. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      One of my fav lines in the series actually.


    3. Jango


      Eggman is super quotable.

  13. FF7R is just a matter of time now... just gotta hold off a bit longer...

    1. Bobnik


      KH3 coming March 30th just craps on my plan, which was to not buy anything for the next 2 months and then maybe get both Nier Replicant and FF7R in April, but uh, MIchael Mouse got me by the neck.

      I hope FF7R is coming to Steam and not just EGS tho.

  14. Well that get's a solid "Huh, neat" from me.

  15. Ya know, maybe the year off actually worked to Marvel's favor. I thought I'd be somewhat tired when this new stuff rolled around but both this and WandaVision has me eager to see what's next.

    That or good content is good content... yeah, probably that.

    Also I don't know if I said this before but WandaVision is really fucking good so far.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Honestly, what we've gotten so far, feels like a much better opening to Phase 4 than what Black Widow looked like it was shaping up to be.

    2. Kuzu


      Absence makes the heart grow fonder huh.

  16. Y’all need to stop playing with me with these PC port rumors

    1. Thigolf


      "Oh wow, ports are doing really well, we're gonna port more in the future" Sega in 2041 still, probably

  17. Sony could flat out just go a year without releasing anything new if they'd simply go back into their PS4 catalog and remove the 30fps caps for the PS5 as far as I'm concerned.

  18. I mean, after RCS’s departure, I thought it was a pretty sure thing that the entire cast was getting switched out; except Mike at least.

    Though don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I support the move at all. She’s easily been one of the best VAs for Tails we’ve gotten. Hell, I thought she had even been confirmed for the second movie.

    Idk... shit is a mess atm.

    1. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      Well after quite a few characters VA's got swapped in Team Sonic Racing. I thought it was about that time again for Sega to start swapping out all the VA's again.

      Like I'm totally fine with Blaze's new VA, it suits her character. As for Silver's tho....okay they gotta find someone else. They perfected Silver's voice in Forces, I just don't understand why they went the other way.

      My only guess is that if Sega is just replacing the entire cast, Mike Pollock aside. it might be a slow change, but I'm hoping that Amy's & Tails' voices remain unchanged. Because their perfect as those characters. As for Shadow (provided they get the direction right) Kirk Thornton's fine, but really hoping Jason Griffith comes back for Shadow. He was the best Shadow IMO.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      She wasn't confirmed for the second movie. They just needed a cheap VA instead of a Hollywood name for Tails' cameo.

      She was the best Tails we've had. Tied with Higgins, who I couldn't really tell apart.

  19. Well... at least they're addressing it now...

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      The former should be renamed to "LAS", the later likely stands for: "Nintendo's Patchup for their Loser Network". Too bad 3D World couldn't wait longer to have that installed for it's online, cause March is when Mario dies  

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Swell, nice to know Smash Ult is still gonna be garbo unless they update it.

  20. This premise has potential. Depending on who's writing it and how crazy they go, there's a lot of cool shit you could do.

    Now do I expect Sega to allow for any of that shit to go down? Lol, but hey, this is the first bit of decent news we've gotten in a bit so I'll fucken take it.

  21. As if we needed another nail in the "Bayo 3 is just vaporware" coffin...

    1. Ellipsis-Ultima


      What was the point of showing that trailer then

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I thought Aruran [the Holostars vtuber] was an actual announcement video for Bayo 3 but it turns out it was just him playing Bayo 2

      Silly thumbnails confusing me!

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      I thought there was supposed to be an update on Bayo 3 this year?

    4. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      duke bayonetta forever prime 4

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well at least Scalebound won't be feeling lonely in Vaporware Hell anymore

  22. If I was looking for a good Spider-Man show, what would be the top pick?

    1. Winston


      I’d say Spectacular and the 90’s cartoon. I don’t know if people really care about the 90’s one but I grew up watching it and thought it was great. 

    2. NegaMix


      Spectacular Spider-Man is the one I'd recommend above all. I don't really recall enough of the 90's show to say if it holds up entirely, and the Disney shows (Ultimate and 2017) are pretty mediocre at best.

    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Spectacular is the best Spider-man show overall. The 90's one followed a lot of great comic stories, so its the second pick.

    4. Spin Attaxx

      Spin Attaxx

      Basically what everyone else has said; Spectacular's easily the best of them, but the 90s series isn't a bad second choice even if it doesn't quite hold up today in some aspects.

  23. Just played the Balan demo.

    It's fine.

  24. Sega, what are you doing...

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Looking at the long list of problems Sonic has and making sure absolutely none of them are being addressed.

    2. Kuzu


      Mismanaging their brand as usual.
