UPCOMING VIDEO GAMES TALK (2018 & Beyond)

It's coming out on RDR2 day and will be murdered but I hope it does well.

I'm also glad it retains the PSX translation since I'm about to launch a website called Miserable Pile of Secrets

I really don't want Console/PC crossover with Battlefront 2.  That's gonna suck.

I was more concerned with item placement than the translation.  The 2 Saturn Familars they wedged in just weren't worth making the Holy Sword a rare drop instead of a placed item.  Although the Maria fight was probably the best thing about the PSP version.

 

Outside of them making trophies around leveling up Familars, I might finally be able to platinum a game.

I already don't think I'm going to platinum if the platinum is both games combined.  I suck at Rondo of Blood.

It's a $15 digital-only release, a cash grab that'll likely have a long tail. I don't think they see themselves as in competition with RDR2.

 

My October buy list:

Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise (10/2)

Mega Man 11 (10/2)

Zen Pinball: Williams Classics v1 (10/9)

Soul Calibur 6 (10/19)

Castlevania Requiem (10/26)

 

Sheesh, I hadn't realized how heavy the month is.  And if I'd ever played RDR1 I'd certainly be buying RDR2.

Oh fuck, I almost forgot about Lost Paradise. I got about halfway through the '80s anime before temporarily putting it aside. I need that game but I really wanted to run through the Ass Creed games I've yet to play... And Red Dead is coming. And I never did buy Symphony of the Night when you guys told me to, so I'll probably get the PS4 version. Too many games.

Megaman 11 is good, plays like a Megaman game. The music can be changed if people don't like it.

Critics complaining about it being hard when there's multiple easy modes is strange.

Most modern critics suck at actually playing games.

to be fair, that's because they have to meet deadlines in order to have money for food and shelter, so they can't deep dive into a single game's mechanics like someone playing it for pure entertainment can

EDIT: I added a sidebar that made a lot more sense when I thought this was the general thread and not the upcoming game thread.

People who want instant reviews up front are the same ones responsible for the nonsense garbage fire that is Positive Steam Echo Chamber where some nerd with 45 minutes in Dragon Quest XI posts "there's a loli waifu it's good" and it gets 427 likes.

I was actually impressed that PC Gamer straight out said "We can't give you a full review of Assassin's Creed Odyssey because we are only 20 hours into it after getting the review copy a little late" the other day. Like, that's so rarely honest.

When they're not plagiarizing other sites, or posting reviews that are just flat out wrong (i.e. complaining about a lack of action in sports management sims), IGN has been known to do the same thing with reviews.

Just got an e-mail from Gearbox about Borderlands 2 VR coming out on 14 December.

I'm not sure how big into the VR thing folks are, but that sounds like it could be a hell of a lot of fun.
