    Yoshi is called the explosive head. I thought that was Birdo's official title.

    I like remasters (and ports). They let me play games I missed back when they released or update stuff I love. I didn't mind buying Halo Anniversary because I love Halo and got to play it with shiny new graphics.

    I played Valkyria Chronicles for the first time thanks to its pc port and found one of my favorite RPGs. I mean, I played Bulletstorm and Vanquish when they released, love both, and I'm pumped for their remasters/ports because I can now talk about them with more people.

    Besides, Switch is a new system. It needs a library aside from Zelda. We know content like Arms, Splatoon, and Mario are releasing this year: so why freak out about remasters and ports? They fill out the library; pick one you've never played, park your bare ass on the toilet, and enjoy 2017!

    Oh man, console quality gaming while on the white throne. The future is now, and it's beautiful, man.

    I enjoyed this reading this. I haven't seen Twin Peaks, don't know the hype about the revival and haven't called any game Lynchian, but I really dug this piece. Great article!

    oh it's got the same meaning as the middle finger? I led a training session at work today and did that pose to tell people they got it right.

    Not even making this up.

    Oops lol

    I'm kind of done backing games on Kickstarter, but it isn't because of Mighty No 9. I just haven't played much of what I backed. To list everything:

    Shovel Knight- only game I've played on the list.

    Pillars of Eternity
    Dreamfall Chapters
    Mighty No 9
    Hyper Light Drifter
    Cosmic Star Heroine
    Shadowrun: Hong Kong

    Bloodstained- I await it with great anticipation
    Tangiers- stuck in development hell

    But basically, I've played one game, Shovel Knight. I mean, I can back more games, but at this point i'm pissing money away on stuff I haven't touched. Other people can fund the games, if they're good I'll buy them. That way I can avoid situations like Mighty No 9. The issue is, it takes a long time for games to release, and sometimes by the time they do I'm knee deep in something that's commanding my attention. Case in point, Torment, Hyper Light, and Cosmic Star are all being ignored because Breath of the Wild exists.

    That said, I haven't stopped funding things on Kickstarter, I've just turned away from games. I still fund stuff that catches my eye. Whether it's a dub and English release of an anime, books, tech, or whatever:

    C.H.I.P. the world's first $9 computer
    Boss Fight Books Season 2 and Season 3
    NES/Famicom compendium
    SNES/Super Famicom compendium
    Third Edition Books
    Bring Reading Rainbow Back
    Mai Mai Miracle
    No Hay Nada Mas

    There's always something cool happening on Kickstarter, but games can be a tough sell.

    I initially backed a project called Project Phoenix. It's supposed to be a squad-based JRPG featuring AAA talent or something. I cancelled my donation to the project and I just searched it to see what it became: so far still in development. It's been four years. It's tough to wait that long. I back a book and every month or so Boss Fight sends me a new book.

    But, that isn't to say I don't play KS games. I do, just not the ones I've backed apparently. FTL, Valdis Story, Shadowrun Returns (and maybe Dragonfall if it had a campaign), Strike Suit Zero and a bunch of others that I've enjoyed. But I paid for them upfront at release and it's worked out better for me since I can actually play them right away.

    OMG Marie says "for eel" I love it.
    @himuradrew it's actually a really good campaign with some excellent boss battles. The mp is where it's at, but the campaign was well done.
