    I mean it's nice to see a big studio do something different, I guess. But I worry about whether it will actually BE different. Just the fact that it's being touted as an "open world game" is a big cause for concern. And as far as gameplay goes, I'm skeptical of this studio's ability to deliver something strong. Certainly not up to the level of say, Nioh.

    @SpoonyBardOL Personally I really love the HD port of Spelunky, it adds so much value to the game. I like the new art, but I especially love the new soundtrack! Now don't get me wrong, the original Spelunky's soundtrack is awesome, but mainly it was just that song for the first 4 levels, which is a godly song and arguably better than anything in the port. However, the rest of the game's music was a bit weak. The port, on the other hand, has a ton of new music, including 4 variant songs for each of the 4 main areas, and a bunch of other music. Some of that music is really good. I'd say if we're talking about indie soundtracks, Spelunky's port still is near the top.

    @Rack I mean personally I would say the same of Mario 64, a game I still feel that is unsurpassed in the Mario world. I love Galaxy, and I'm sure Odyssey is wonderful; but 64 is the masterpiece that I can keep going back to forever. It's the closest to perfect I've seen character movement / level design get.

    This is great, and very deserved! I agree that we really still *need* Nintendo in the games industry. They add something essential and there'd be a giant emptiness without them.

    I dunno man. To me, this game is just the epitone of the word "stale." Like, when you think of one game franchise that just feels old and tired, you think of Ass Creed. I get that they're trying to add some things to this one, but awkwardly mixing in a little bit of Souls combat (badly) and some RPG elements (how novel) that just isn't enough.

    @MarioIV Hey hold on, let's not get crazy here! This was a good year for Nintendo... but there's also some consoles called the NES and SNES, or a game called Mario 64! There's been some damn fine years for Nintendo!

    But yeah is a pretty good one.

    @WiIIyTheAntelope Well maybe they won't fall into that same familiar pattern. Maybe they'll learn from their mistakes. You never know!

    @TernBird Persona 5 is one of the better written games of the year, so I think there's no need to be concerned.

    @Thad There's a difference though between "ignoring the situation" and admitting you don't have enough information to make a judgment one way or the other. In the case of the forum moderators, I think you're right... they have to make a judgment because they have something at stake. In the case of the forum-goers, I think they can decide to stay or leave the forum according to their own level of trust. But that still doesn't excuse people going around automatically condemning the accused or accuser in this situation. People are a little too quick to take sides, that's all I'm saying. It's almost as if, as a culture, we have an addiction to condemnation.

    I love Persona 5, it's "NieR" to being my favorite game of the year (get it?)... but I wouldn't get this. The costumes are cool and all, but I'm not rich enough to justify paying all this money on them.
