    I'm not excited about many of the games on this list. The games I have pre-ordered that will come out before the end of the year are Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Forces, Etrian Odyssey V, and the physical release of Patapon for PS4. It seems like a lot of the best games of 2017 are already out, which is fine with me; I still have plenty left to play in Ys VIII and Everybody's Golf, and then there's always stuff that has been piling up for older consoles...

    The Toys R Us model was great. All of the games were in pristine condition: no price tags, no manhandling from customers.

    Most laws are murky and depend on people acting in good faith rather than intentionally pushing limits. It seems like Let's Plays technically aren't fair use under the current law, and it's nice that most copyright holders have let them slide by. It sucks that attention-grabbers like PewDiePie have to push their luck by trying to make a profit by shouting racial slurs over other people's work. We had a nice thing going; why do jerks like him always have to wreck things?

    I laughed a lot at the Gremlins 2 sketch, but Gremlins 2 is actually a pretty tight movie that knows what its about and sticks with it.
    Now Robocop 2 on the other hand... THERE's a movie that tried to do everything the committee came up with and resulted in gigantic mess! ...but I guess there isn't a funny video for that one.

    I'm excited to hear that the tilt controls have been added, even though I don't think they'll feel as good as using the Wii's IR pointer.
    I will probably buy these on Switch, but making the second game digital-only definitely makes me hesitate.

    I know that the cause of game journalism ethics has been co-opted by horrible people, which makes me hesitant to bring up the topic, but given their policies on open games, returned games, and display copies, is it really ethical to imply that you can buy a new game at GameStop?

    How much do you want to bet they intentionally delayed the PC version because they knew reviews would complain about the DRM if it launched along with the other versions?

    @mobichan I don't think big heads or 3D models are the problem; they could have done those well. The problem is that this is cheap and ugly.
    It's easy to assume this is just due to a low budget and/or incompetence, but I have to wonder if they intentionally re-imagined the characters in the style of a shitty mobile game to make the game more inviting to a wider pool of players...

    Why does it have to look so ugly? How does garbage like this make it so far into production??

    I bought Shubinbinman Zero when Columbus Circle published a cartridge this summer. I am a total sucker for 16-bit games and Capcom is one of my favorite developers. So with all that in mind, I've gotta say:
    This is the dumbest thing ever.
