    The big thread of what E3 announcements interest you!

    So, yeah, really glad to finally be able to play Metal Wolf Chaos legally. Hoping for a physical release, cos I'll smash that order button faster than a Florida recount >:D Absolutely over the moon that Cuphead is getting a mission pack. Also hoping for a physical copy (a real one this time). Reserving judgement on Death Stranding, although it does look really cool. Despite the baby mooning me. Cyberpunk 2077 looks really interesting. I love anything with a VHS-era futuristic setting. Sea of Solitude looks like a decent wee game, but I'm averse to installing Origin, so I might have to pass if it isn't on console. Absolutely NO interest in EA's DestinyFrame. It looks like it was conceived and designed by EA's crack team of shareholders. Utterly generic. As a Switch owner, I'm a little concerned that Nintendo is banking on ONE game this year, even if it is Smash Ultimate. No Star Fox (that plastic RFID Ubi-shit doesn't count), no mention of Metroid, no Yoshi and no third-party stuff we didn't already know about. And, is it just me, or are all of Sony's exclusive games over-the-shoulder stealth action titles (Spidey notwithstanding)?

    Pie in the sky stuff, but a GTAV port? Hey, I can dream.

    Oh, by the way, that Alexa version of Skyrim is real.

    Command and Conquer: Rivals

    I was watching the Snarkathon stream last night and Genna Bain actually said, "This sounds really morbid, but I'm so glad my husband isn't around to see this ..."
  8. Earthbound. Yeah, I said it. Strip away the mystique surrounding the game and you're left with a pretty bog-standard RPG with some neat quirks, but some really annoying design choices too, even for the 90's. The SNES had many far superior RPG's even in Europe where we didn't get most of the Squaresoft stuff until the PS1 era.

    So, what kind of music do you guys like?

    A lot of different stuff, from 70's prog rock to euphoric trance, industrial to deep house, and a lot of game music. Music is a big thing in my family.

    Expansion Packs: Your best, okay, and worst

    Best: Quake: Scourge of Armagon. When it comes to OG Quake, I'm all about the techbase, which IMO didn't really get a good enough showing in the base game. Meh: Doom 3: Resurrection Of Evil: Fun, but lacking the atmosphere of vanilla D3, although the way they did the retread through Delta Labs was pretty inspired. Worst. Quake II: Ground Zero. TURRETS! NO! PLEASE! NOT THE TURRETS! A shame too, because the Black Widow is one of the most underappreciated bosses in gaming history.

    Why game makers like EA are nowadays evil?

    While there's merit in this argument, my inclination to disagree stems from the fact that there is nothing to stop the likes of EA and Actiblizzard from jacking up the price and slapping the MTX in there anyway. I have absolutely no faith in the idea that these soulless megacorporations could ever possibly be trusted to resist the temptation to double-down on their shitty business practices even in light of a retail price increase. If EA are happy to disregard the rulings of several goverments regarding their random-roll skinnerboxes, there's no way they'll ever be prepared to just sell us a game again. But yeah, people need to stop threatening boycotts and start actively participating in them. I do. I haven't bought an EA game since Dead Space 3.
