      Silly Sean, Sony doesn't care anymore about Ape Escape. Every AAA release now has to be over-realistic looking with over-the-shoulder camera and with prevalence of green and brown as colors. I mean, Marvel forced us to use red and grey for Spider-Man and poor Daniel over there almost had an heart attack, pray noone tells him about the Medievil remake or he will have Shawn Layden fired.

  3. Also putting aside how terribly Netflix treated the situation with the old VAs, within a bubble the various script changes, lack of kanji translation and the fact that Kaworu got fucking COUSIN'D is what dooms this version to immediate irrelevancy. If you want to watch Evangelion and actually enjoy it, just check out the original dub or ADV subs instead.

    The Netflix release is a fucking disaster in every respect

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Why did they even bother?

    2. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      @Teoskaven I think I know; they knew how hardcore the fans are and did this on purpose just to push them off.

      Why can we ever have nice things?

  5. Fly Me to the Moon isn't in Netflix Eva. Why did Netflix even fucking bother with this show?

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      My front isn't good either, the redub hasn't the same charm as the original and they changed a lot of terms pointlessly.

    2. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      ex the fuck scuse me?

    3. Sean

      Sean

      I'm sticking with my Bluray rips with the ADV dub. I knew Netflix was gonna fuck it up somehow - even aside from how shitty they handled the situation with the old VAs. What a worthless license-grab.

  6. https://store.steampowered.com/app/219990/Grim_Dawn/

    Grim Dawn is really fucking good. So good, in fact, that it's actively ruining my daily life. Like do I really need to study? or wash dishes, or sleep? when I can play one or four more hours of this game instead? Games like those hardly come by for me these days but when they do it's like no other game even matters right now lol

    1. shdowhunt60

      shdowhunt60

      I really want to give it a try on GOG, but I was basically a kid when I played Diablo 2, and I really don't know if I would get into a game like this. But it looks cool tho...

  7. Drinking coffee before bed has been sorta helping me sleep lately because I get major crashes when I drink it these days, caffeine really doesn't help me stay awake anymore

    1. Indigo Rush

      Weird

      Have you tried melatonin pills?

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah, I have a bottle on reserve since I have trouble with sleep all the time. The coffee makes me sleepier though, dunno why

      I figured eventually, especially after the leaks he was likely. I just figured Kirk wouldn’t be involved since he seemed to be going against them in what he said, since it was brought to my attention he had no current ties with Microsoft/Rare. But now...I guess I’m mostly just confused with this entire situation with him lol

      So is that 2 more slots taken up now or

    8. KHCast

      KHCast

      I’ll gladly take Sora even if he’s another anime boy. But my desire for him aside, I still think we’re getting another western rep

    9. Speederino

      Speederino

      Wait sorry, one addendum to my no animu rule: Phoenix Wright is still allowed

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      but we'd all prefer Bubsy

    13. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah I basically had to eat an entire murder when K. Rool was announced. Didn't think Ridley had a chance either

      With Sora I do think he has some slight chance but KH rep on Nintendo is pretty abysmal so I'm not a fan of adding more characters like him and Joker into the mix. also he sux0rz

    14. KHCast

      KHCast

      If the HD collections end up on switch, I’ll give Sora’s chances some serious attention, but for now it’s just a personal wish that’ll probably not go anywhere since we got our Square rep. He’s not my favorite KH character, but he’s iconic, stylish, goofy, and the main character(which sakurai has said is his rule for new franchises getting in) and has a plethora of fun moves to pull from. He’d fit perfectly in the Smash universe. As long as they set him apart from the typical sword fighting character, I’ll gladly take another anime boy like him.

    15. Sean

      Sean

      Sora could end up being a fun character in Smash and I'd like to see KH1 and 2FM on Switch

    16. Corviknight

      ...Please don't eat me. I taste nasty.

      Good thing this’ll be my first Pokémon game in years, I imagine I’d be hella salty if I worked hard on the other Gen games with raising my team 

  10. All is well

  11. Calling it now: Metroid Prime Pinball 2, and I won't even be fucking mad

    1. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      I'll take anything Metroid. 

      Whatever, even a Other M sequel.

  12. "Where's the game?" is a question I ask myself a lot whenever E3 announcements happen

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      Yeah I've caught myself thinking this too a few times.

      Like wtf was that artsy-fartsy Gears 5 trailer yesterday? I guess they showed some multiplayer but there wasn't anything from the actual campaign iirc.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Did you check under your shoe?

      The developers threw it on your roof where you can't reach it.

    4. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Nothing pisses me off more than not showing the game itself.

      If you're truly passionate about your game, and you want people to play it, then you better show the game! I want to see why you're passionate! I want to feel that passion for myself! Let me be as excited as you are!

      ...That was probably the most backhanded criticism I've ever given.

  13. Oh cool, Real Myst is coming to Switch. That's the one Myst game I don't own, I have everything else in the series... even that one weird spin-off that's in third-person

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Okay, forget Psychonauts 2 being own be Microsoft now; this is robbery.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Psychonauts 2 is still coming to all platforms, the buyout won't change that.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Eh, I’m still firmly in the “It’s still the PC either way so I can’t really get mad at this” camp regarding games going to the Epic Store situations.

      More concerned about that 100gb file size like damn

    4. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      I would've been in the "at least it's still coming to PC" camp if EGS wasn't a piece of crap to this day.

      It still doesn't work properly, Epic still goes very agressive with their exclusivity deals (as in, they moneyhat publishers so that they can't release the game on Steam and Steam only), the store STILL DOES NOT HAVE A FUCKING SHOPPING CART, THEREFORE CAN STILL BLOCK YOU FROM BUYING MORE THAN A COUPLE OF GAMES.

      It's a disgrace to all the other digital stores and them agressively moneyhatting games is disgusting.

       

    5. Sean

      Sean

      I'm not a Steam/Valve fan, Epic just strikes me as an especially arrogant company I don't want to support.

      I care more about companies killing off online-only games than any other issue in the industry, but it's still annoying considering who it is

    6. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @BobnikI mean, I feel like that second issue is still a “at least it’s on pc” thing but I guess that’s just me.

      Can’t really argue with the third. Though, I feel like the first one is a case by case bases. While I haven’t had a single issue with it yet, I know others have.

      I agree that Epic should really focus more on improving the platform at this point but I also believe in two other things here. 1, that Steam itself is far from perfect and, 2, at the end of the day I really only see both of them as game sellers and launchers. Every other little feature Steam deploys is almost always done better by another platform like with voice chat and Discord. I don’t really lose anything by playing something through Epic rather than Valve. Sure those features should probably get there sooner rather than later but... can’t really say I’d utilize them once they do arrive.

      Also, truth be told Valve needed this wake up call; fair play or not.

    7. Sean

      Sean

      Epic doesn't strike me as very pro-consumer which is why I don't like them. A lot of their touted benefits regarding EGS seem to favor the publishers over the buyers, and they don't even accept Paypal wallet because they pass the credit card charges onto the consumer. The one good thing I've seen come out of EGS is its regional pricing for certain countries, but it's better than Steam in some countries but worse in others, so it's a case by case basis and since I'm in the US this doesn't affect me.

      With that said, I'm in a pretty steadfast "GOG/itch.io/other DRM-free storefronts vs. everyone else" camp myself and I always buy from those stores over Steam when I have the chance. Having a game that's DRM-free and doesn't require an account login easily trumps any feature that any storefront can throw at me no matter how nice they sound. The Steam client's features aren't important to me but I understand that they're important to other people, especially stuff like streaming, cloud saves, and Proton for Linux users.

      And at the end of the day I don't like Epic because they seem like they think they can brute force their way into my wallet rather than try to earn it as other stores like Steam and GOG have.

      Doesn't look like it's working, Valve ain't doing shit.

    9. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      They’re finally upgrading their store front among other things

    10. Sean

      Sean

      Valve is always working on changes and improvements to their storefront, I don't think Epic has had any real effect on how they operate things. Valve in general is pretty recluse and seems to be doing behind-the-scenes stuff all the time without making a big deal about it until they have something to show.

    11. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Honestly, I can’t really remember the last time Valve felt the need to update the store front as majorly as recent reports make it out to be but I guess I’m just missing something there. Really, Valve’s complacency annoys me just as much in this case.

      But real talk, I’m just happy more publishers are actually releasing their games on PC now.  Like, I’d use Excel if it meant getting a decent port of Unleashed or something. It’s not ideal, but once I’m in the game I can’t really say I ever care about what launched the code.

      I do get the issues and why a lot of people are upset though. It’s just, for me at least, in the grand scheme of things I just don’t see it as the biggest issue in the PC market.

    12. Sean

      Sean

      That's fair. The issue I care most about is companies killing off online-only games and I'd rather direct most of my anger toward EA, Ubisoft, or MMO companies who do this shit all the fucking time than Epic who at least isn't doing this one thing I hate the most about the game industry. I don't like Epic and stand by my reasons but their store's games are still infinitely more playable than all the dead games out there that I literally can never play again.

  14. People who don't replay games at all are fucking weird

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      But also people who grind endlessly in a single game instead of playing new ones are fucking weird too.

      Looking at you, Shiny Pokémon hunters 

    2. Sean

      Sean

      ~50 hours is my limit when it comes to those sorts of games these days, any more and I start having existential crises

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I can go for longer if there's actually progress and varying content to experience. But even just fighting in a Battle Tower/Tree/Maison/Frontier etc etc gets very boring, very fast.

    4. Marcello

      Marcello

      I've played Assassin's Creed Odyssey for over 120 hours...

    5. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      There honestly aren't many worth replaying anymore. Way too many modern developers have a "fuck you, got mine" attitude when it comes to making games, caring more about whether they can bait somebody into buying their shit than the amount of fun or mileage you can actually get out of it.

    6. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I play what I want, when I want. You can't stop me :V

    7. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Blacklightning I play way fewer games than I used to. Mainly Nintendo ones, Sonic (maybe some other SEGA stuff) and various indie games. Puzzle heavy indie games aside (which can be breezed through in a heartbeat when you know the puzzles), they're all well written replaying. The more "mainstream" popular games these days tend to be crap for replayability, but they also tend to be not so great to play in the first place IMO. I'd even lumber most Sonic games post Unleashed in that concerning replay value.

    8. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I've put a concerning amount of gameplay hours into Sonic Mania

    9. Sean

      Sean

      Not saying every game is worth replaying but then you have those people who don't replay anything whatsoever, even games they loved as a kid, on the basis that they're old or whatever and I don't get that.

  15. As one of the seven total Commander Keen fans left on Earth I'm not thrilled about the mobile game but I'll probably forget abut it tomorrow

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Look at how they massacred the boy (Also, a lot of people on Twitter are apparently fans as they are hurt about their childhoods being ruined, and Tom Hall (One of the creators) has already said he hated it).

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      If it doesn't have this guy 

       

      what's the point

  16. I started playing ECHO today. It's an intense sci-fi stealth horror in which your every action shapes the enemy AI and you have to adjust your playstyle on the fly in order to survive. It's great stuff, but takes years off my lifetime.

  17. Finished Mirror's Edge. Combat gripes aside, I didn't really enjoy the last three chapters all that much but everything else was mostly great. Think if I replay it I might just use an invincibility cheat/mod if one exists.

  18. I really want to love Mirror's Edge but the shitty combat is not making that happen

    1. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      I hear the game rewards you for not fighting whatsoever. So not a surprise the combat system is not the best as it is not the focus.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Was the sequel any better?

    3. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      You're not actively fighting, you're attempting to avoid it. Pick up a gun to fight for a short while, but you're not expected to keep it.

      But if it's still an issue, that's a shame :( Mirror's Edge is definitely one of my favourite games.

    4. Sean

      Sean

      No there are definitely moments when you're forced to fight. I can't see how you can do this entire game without engaging with a single enemy. I've tried

    5. Ferno

      Ferno

      Really was my favorite 1st person game and favorite non-sonic game on the 360. True it was clunky at times though. Wish it got the full blown franchise treatment to iron out the kinks over time (besides the 2nd one that apparently made things worse somehow based on the reviews I read)

    6. Wraith

      Wraith

      The combat is pretty bad. There's no woke explanation or excuse aside from the fact that it was forced on the devs by higher ups and isn't that polished because of it. 

      There's more ways around it than you probably realize but I don't think players should have to avoid it to have fun. It should properly synergize with the movement

    7. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah. Like the "boss" in chapter 7 took me forever to do because you HAVE to survive long enough to trigger the part where they start running away. It's ridiculous how difficult it is to just hold my ground and I almost wanted to quit.

      It doesn't ruin the game for me, it really just bumps my feelings for this game down from "love" to "like". If there was a way to play all these levels without any enemies in my path I'd have a lot more fun with it.

  19. The new YL looks like it could be pretty good. I'm interested, if not excited.

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      Looks like a mini slice of DKC so I'm all in

    2. Sean

      DKC formula > BK formula

  20. Baldur's Gate 3 announced: 

     

    1. gato

      gato

      As someone who never touched the series, isn't this kind of a big deal to reveal just like that?

    2. Sean

      Sean

      @gato Not sure I follow what you're asking. It was announced at Google's Stadia presentation and subsequently confirmed for both Stadia and PC.

  21. Nothing comes close to triggering pokéhype for me than seeing new non-legendary 'mons

    1. Spin Attaxx

      Spin Attaxx

      In fairness, the Legendaries this time have honestly the most anti-hype designs I've seen since... well, Zeraora if we want to count Mythicals.

      But yeah, I love edgy taxi driver crow and Shaun the Sheep.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Legendaries are always a mixed bag for me. I've come to expect that there will always be new ones I like and others I completely can't stand.

      On the other hand, I get weirdly excited over common 'mons that are revealed some time after the starters. Dunno why

    3. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      "do the pokemon look cool" is basically the only reason i even pay attention to pokemon anymore

      also legendaries suck like 99% of the time

  22. It took me three weeks to get around to it but I finally finished act, uh... 1, in Diablo 2

  23. https://scrap-paper-dev.itch.io/scrap-story

    Paper Mario-inspired RPG, looks incredible

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      I'm hoping it don't fall into the same trap that games like Freedom Planet or Yooka Layee did with picking up the torch.

      At the same time, I'm so excited to watch this take off after they announce Sticker Star 3 (4) at E3, and by the latter's release, this will totally trample it.

  24. Distance is a good racing game

    1. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      SERIOUSLY. It kicks so much ass and not nearly enough people know about it!

    2. Sean

      Sean

      I just finished the main campaign earlier, can't wait to dive into the DLC stuff and custom content tomorrow.

    3. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      Even just the regular arcade levels and the Nitronic Rush campaign (which might be DLC??? I dunno) are great enough on their own, and I haven't even finished all of them, since they get pretty hard and my craptop is actually too slow to keep up with many of them

    4. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      I watched a lets play of Distance before. It looked awesome!

      On a side note: I also wondered what A Sonic game done in that style would feel like, including the spooky techno atmosphere for the whole game... except for the characters to still be on foot obviously kinda like the boost games and with boss fights still included.
