  1. Welp, I just finished the last route in Fire Emblem Three Houses (Blue Lions), took me ~250 hours. In short it's a really good game, probably one of the best I played this year despite not looking too great graphically as well as having some balancing issues (wyvern lords and just fliers are busted in this game).

    As for the route order from best to worst IMO:
    BL >= GD > BE-E > BE-C


  2. Holy shit Sans actually got memed into Smash

  3. 1) More DLC characters, that's neat! 

    2) Xenoblade 1 remaster/remake, that's actually really good, cuz I kinda want to play that. 

    3) Excuse me Jedi Outcast port what

    4) The moment I saw Tokyo Mirage Sessions, I went into a corner and turned to stone. 

  4. Huh, didn't realize I haven't been active for nearly a month or so, only lurking. I do have a good reason, and it starts with Fire and ends with Emblem. also losing most of my interest in sonic but lets not focus on that. 

    I've dumped ~200-ish hours or so into Three Houses and I still need to do 1.5 routes, so I think I can tell my opinion on the game. The praise and sales it got is deserved for the most part. Probably my GOTY, even if I haven't played a lot of games that came out this year. It's such a big improvement over Fates in everything but map design and maybe soundtrack, it's not even funny. The story isn't insultingly bad, the worldbuilding and the lore is a lot more fleshed out, the VA is great (not counting original male Byleth for known reasons), the monastery gameplay loop is actually kinda addicting, yet doesn't overshadow the actual battles, and overall it's a great packagethat, while starts slow, picks up the pace in a way that makes sense. 

    Now I need to finish the Black Eagles route fully and maybe either leave Blue Lions for Lunatic mode, whenever that comes out, or do an Ironman run (aka no Divine Pulse, if the character dies, it dies) 

    1. Red


      I've sunk about 110 hours into Three Houses so far. Almost wrapped up Black Eagles. Will probably do Golden Deer next, then finally restart Blue Lions cause I messed up my original run real bad by not grinding ever lol It's a really fantastic game.

  5. Man, these 9 days till FE Three Houses releases are gonna be painful

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      9 days

      9 hours

      9 minutes

    2. Solly


      I've been busy lately but I plan on absolutely no-lifeing that game once it comes out. 

  6. Welp, I guess the worst did come true... Man, this sucks.

  7. So Nintendo showed FE Three Houses and I don't know why they were scared of showing gameplay properly till less than 2 months before release. Cuz the game actually looks good and some info made me more hyped for the game finally.

    The school system looks to be a really big extension on My Castle system from Fates, with all the different fetch quests, idle(?) quests, studying, improving skills, using said improvements to change the unit class, etc. There's a lot and I feel a little bit overwhelmed.

    The battles look pretty good, though I still can't figure out what the formations are for. Maybe it was clarified in the showcase or anywhere prior to E3, so please make me understand the system. Durability is back, Combat Arts from Echoes are back and they're actually more taxing on the durability of the weapon, so you can't really spam them.  There's actually more interactive tiles than I expected, but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing.

    Overall I'm actually considering getting a Switch for this game, cuz I really liked what I saw. and I guess the leak was true, which means dark, but great story ala FE4, and I'm fully on board after the travesty called Fates.

    Oh yeah, they also confirmed that romantic relationships are only after the time skip, thank god!

      Where as Animal Crossing got pushed back 2020, yet it recived plenty of gameplay within its first trailer.

    2. Marcello


      We got gameplay ages ago. Looked butt ugly, though.

    3. Bobnik


      @Marcello and then there was pretty much nothing after that till this Treehouse (unless you count the JP account's tweets that introduce characters, but even those are just small introductions).

  8. GUH-HUH

  9. And now please read the blog post and you'll see they're doing it "at no additional cost". It's free post-launch content. Thanks for mutilating TSR's corpse even harder, CTR.
  10. Overall I think it was ok. Not bad, but also kinda weak. The highlights for me were Lego Horizons, hearing "120 FPS" and "console" together, PSO2 (though it's not coming to Europe apparently cuz fuck you too, SEGA), fucking Keanu Reeves on stage and being in Cyberpunk 2077 like holy shit. But there also wasn't that much of actual gameplay stuff shown for important projects? Like, the same Cyberpunk 2077, Gears 5, Halo Infinite, that game with R.R.Martin's involvement - all CG stuff or pre-rendered stuff. xCloud also wasn't properly described, like the pricing, the requirements, the supported games, etc. It just felt a bit heavy on pre-rendered stuff and kinda light on gameplay. But overall it wasn't bad. Just kinda weak.
  11. Holy shit the meme is dead

  12. I actually liked the trailer, even if there's not much actual new stuff shown. One, ya boy Skinnype-- I mean Roxas is playable and he looks to be without any sort of changes, including the damage output. Yes please! Two - can't believe I'm gonna be talking about Luxord in 2019/2020, depending on when the DLC gets released (since "this Winter" can be early 2020 for all we know) Three - glad to see Oathkeeper back in the game. It doesn't get a proper transformation, only a new form, but I don't mind too much, cuz these combos are kinda nuts. And it's free thankfully! Four - nice to know they aren't spoiling too much this time, since we know there's gonna be a Limit episode - most likely harder refights, as well as a Secret episode with a new boss. I hope at least the latter doesn't get spoiled, have to leave something for a surprise. Five - give me more stupid lore in galons pls ty. Overall, while I can see people being disappointed in this trailer, I'm not one of those people. That said, I still have my expectations in check, so that I don't burn myself later on.
  13. Fallen Order looks pretty cool, a mix between Dark Souls (hurr durr dark souls of star wars series) and I guess Uncharted/Prince of Persia?

    Kinda sucks this is the only cool Star Wars game we're getting from EA.

  14. Welp, they had to press the panic button sooner or later. Infinity Ward had a pretty poor streak of CoD games lately. After MW2 they've made MW3, which, while still good, was a somewhat noticable drop in quality; Ghosts, which was a messy cross-gen game, and Infinite Warfare, which did poorly, even though I'm seeing more people liking the game's campaign (haven't played it, so I don't know). IW had poor rep this gen, so they pushed the panic button and got quite an amount of important people from Respawn Entertainment (aka people that worked on MW2, MW1) and even a Narrative Director taken from Naughty Dog. This trailer doesn't give the previews any sort of justice. Like, if I only saw the trailer, I would be very cynical of the game's campaign, but the previews are making this a pretty interesting situation. For one thing, I'm glad that (if that's the case) the campaign looks to be more grounded and not the bombastic Michael Bay-ass Mountain Dew-filled power fantasy. Going for the shock factor ala No Russian or the nuke (or even the chemical attack in Paris in MW3), cranking it up to 11, not making the campaign a white-and-black affair, but more of a grey-area affair sounds promising too. No season pass, crossplay, free DLC - too good to be true (and it is, cuz MTs are confirmed with the PC pre-order page stating that the expensive edition will give you 3k COD Points). Overall, while still not too excited, at least it looks more interesting than anything since, well, BO2. I really hope the campaign is actually worth a damn.
  15. Bridge baby

  16. Spyro is coming to PC.



    1. Milo


      normally i'd wonder if it's going to come to switch; but if activision was willing do shove only part of the game on the disc for the PS4/XBO physical releases and require users to download the rest, than i can only imagine a physical switch release being even worse in that regard

    2. Jango


      60FPS babe

    3. Strickerx5


      Cool, now I actually want to play it.

      can’t wait to play CTR in a year

  17. What's this? Hideo Kojima actually showing an actual game? In 2 days?!

    1. TheOcelot


      He's been hyping this game for 2 years and we finally get to see what the crazy gameplay is.


    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      My interest has been hanging on by a thread. Don't screw it up.

    3. Marcello


      I saw this Tweet earlier when I was outside, so there was glare, but I read it as "Create the pope" 😂

  18. Short answer - no. Longer answer - his portfolio speaks for itself. The only game out of the whole list that's considered "good" was Colors, and even then I feel like it's a fluke, since the reception at that time was a blind "it's daytime stages only, so it's good!!!". While yes, one person can't be responsible for all the shortcomings, game design and direction are 2 of the very important aspects of game development that subsequently divide into several smaller aspects, like level design, script, art design(probably), etc. If he is the director and/or game designer for the next mainline Sonic game, I'm already writing it off as "not good" and probably won't even bother with it.
  19. I think the reason why they decided to do that is because the whole thing went viral when the first trailer came out. When the poster was unveiled, while there was a somewhat big negative reaction, it didn't blow up to anywhere near the same proportions as the first trailer did. It was covered by pretty much everyone you'd ever imagine - fans, non-fans, people with big following, Stephen Colbert, a bunch of other late night shows, other mainstream shows, and nearly all of it was in a negative light. It probably got so bad that Paramount might've been hit directly, to the point where they made this decision. Of course, that's only me speculating, but I wouldn't have expected them to do the same if the reaction to the trailer wasn't this big. After all, a huge negative reaction in your address can hit you in the wallet hard.
  20. Ok, so Haunted Castle isn't the only one that tortures my HDD by trying to load it for 30 minutes. Thunder Deck is doing the same thing and it's the final story race. Ugh, Sumo need to fix this fast.

    EDIT: 40-something minutes later it still didn't load. Looks like I'm not finishing story mode till a patch, if there even is one in the works

  21. I can't believe Sonic, Tails and Eggman are freaking dead...again!

    This time by Edgy the Hedgie

  22. Man, the PC port of TSR is really weird.

    On one hand I can get the game at stable 60 FPS on my crappy laptop, but on the other hand both the game and laptop freaking die when loading Haunted Castle, and only Haunted Castle.

    Like, at one point I had to wait for 20 or so minutes to load that track. I know HDD sucks on the laptop, but even heavy games load faster than this 1 track.

    1. Strickerx5


      The game has also just been randomly breaking for me whenever I click out of the window. At launch things were fine but now whenever I do it, the fps can get cut in half. Though when I got to click on something on my other monitor the frames go back to normal (but I can't actually interact with anything in the game then). Forces me to restart every time.

      The load times are still insane though. Was looking at some PS4 footage and holy shit. Even loading in the character models for the garage takes a bit. I would've been way past done with that shit by now.

  23. Ok, Square is just fucking with us now

    1. SupahBerry


      "Well, we put in a lot of effort making these models only to find out they won't be in 3 at all. Oh well, better not let these go to waste."

    2. Teoskaven


      Dissidia NT uses a different art style compared to KHIII though and these costumes were datamined in 2018, it's just bad timing with the release window.

    3. Balding Spider

      Why is Square tearing out the heart of @KHCast like this?

    4. KHCast


      K, Square really better be adding FF characters into 3 via dlc, cause the constant marketing and selling of the KH FF designs, implying they know the popularity of them, (and also putting kh into ff properties) while saying kh can do without them, is really getting on my nerves 

  24. Oof, this kinda hurt, Square.

    1. KHCast


      Oh fuck off square. They market the FF KH designs/characters knowing they’re popular, but then also act like kh doesn’t need the ff characters. Ugh.

    2. Perkilator


      That comment section is probably not happy, and I don't blame them.

    3. Forgetful Panda

      Forgetful Panda

      ...I legit thought the negative responses where in reference to him not being in KH3. I feel stupid.

  25. Did any of you ever have that kind of morning when the first thing you see is the Clown responding to the drama surrounding him?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Trump is often headline news.

    2. Bobnik


      I don't really follow political news in general, let alone US (outside of very rare occasions), but fair enough.

      I meant a different clown though.
