    I used to buy launch equipment all the time, but I really can't with Nintendo now. Zelda looks like a fine game, but it'll still be fine when 2018 dawns and Mario is there alongside it. Nintendo is their own best representative for games on their platforms, and they can only create so many games at a time. Nobody would look at the Switch's lineup for the following year and go, "oh, dear, the backlog..."

    I'm not crapping on that, by the way. If you're a gamer with limited time or a strenuous job, that kind of periodic release schedule is actually ideal. I'm already invested in everything else, though, so for right now it looks like further hardware costs for minimal payoff at launch.

    I paid $400 for a Wii at launch, passed on Wii U entirely, and I'm in the middle on Switch. I'll spend this year with Mass Effect, Persona, and numerous indie games on PC. I could easily see a hardware revision in the realm of battery life, and if that doesn't happen for a couple years there will be bundled software to support it's price eventually.

    At least this should put the "are there omnic women" debate to rest.

    People want Doomfist to be some Terry Crews voiced adrenaline junkie. I'm kind of hoping he's that timid teenage kid from the first trailer, and the actual mechanical fist is a Terry Crews voiced adrenaline junkie. And they bicker with each other.

    I finished it this week. If they made substantial changes, I'll give New Game + a try. I don't know if I want multiplayer in something like that. Thaaaaat's about it.

    The thought of a PC controller that's made by Nintendo is maaaaayyybe good. The Wii's pro controller was lightweight hollow garbage, though.

    @captainN2
    There actually is some reasoning behind their appearances, but a lot of it is your jumping to conclusions. Noctis is a prince, it sort is sensible he's prim. His fiancée and her brother are likewise elites where they're from. Ignis is essentially your Alfred Pennyworth cook/butler/driver/caretaker. Prompto is the one who is Just A Guy and like a lot of teenagers many of his selfies can actually be ghastly looking instead of handsome.

    Yes it is taking a bit of inspiration from buddy films or Entourage, but also keep in mind you haven't actually seen the whole game. Not everybody in the world looks like that, and the adventure does wear on them. By the final dungeon, everyone is visibly scarred, the cast has gone through as much turmoil as any other FF party, and the world is in as much peril as it was in FF6 or any other installment.

    There's also many characters that look very normal. There is a little bit of a clash between the main cast with their upper class styles and fantasy names and the population of the countryside. Yes, Noctis looks like a rockstar and has an weird name, but he's taking missions from a guy name Dave and another guy in the city who has double chins and a neckbeard. It does feel weird in a sense, but that's sort of what they brought upon themselves by taking the exotic character designs they had made for Versus XII's trailers forward with them into a new game and not starting over entirely.

    It's not a game I can actively recommend in it's current state, but not for any of the reasons you've listed.Edited 4 times. Last edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    The hidden agenda here is that, while developers aren't forced to use it and can choose codes for existing services, Twitch is trying to build a marketplace for it's Steam/Origin competitor. This is all for PC digital goods, it seems, and publishers are being encouraged to use Twitch Launcher, the latest Steam clone that Twitch purchased Curse for last summer.
    Amazon's had moderate success with a clone of the Android app store, but mostly because they sell a lot of attractively-priced Android devices that don't come with the dominant Google Play app store and suite of Google apps that many people associate with Android. They can try to take on Steam in the PC space the same way, and I guess the Twitch "brand" is more attractive, but there's a lot of people out there who are absolutely loyal to Steam for no reason other than the momentum of already having a large library of inexpensive games there.Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    I got an NES at some point when it was still coming with the two controllers, Zapper, and SMB/Duck Hunt, but not when it came with R.O.B so I guess that technically wasn't a launch.

    I don't really have a particular favorite. I guess PS360Wii was memorable because I bought all of them in fairly short order, having to sell off the pieces of a 360 bundle and then gouged myself buying a Wii on eBay for $400. That last part stings a little, but it serves as a reminder whenever I think about buying VR.

    PlayStation was perhaps more interesting, because everybody let Sony run away with the narrative about how great memory cards and CD drives would be. All Nintendo had was simultaneously dumping on CD-ROM while also reserving the possibility of adding one, and all their trash talk about load times wasn't completely unfounded but was inflated.

    Nintendo's endless secrecy with N64 cost them with consumers if not with developers, and I don't think it's something that they've necessarily learned the lesson from. It's weird how with their handhelds they've always been pretty upfront and quick to produce early hardware in development for the press, but when it comes to the struggling home console market it's a lot of rumor and speculation until ten weeks before launch.

    Always liked the Link To The Past supplementary materials design the best.

    So I looked at this review originally when there were only two comments. Twelve hours later there's like a hundred and fifty. Hmmmm.

    This is a smaller, more personality driven site that has just has a change in staff. If you're a regular visitor here for it's reviews, podcasts, etc, you kind of learn more about the people. You know Mike likes open world games and PC gaming. Kat likes JRPGs and that reputation goes back to 1Up and Active Time Babble. A new person doesn't bring that breadth of familiarity, so I have the same thought now I did after the first two comments:

    "Hmm, Axe of the Blood God should be interesting."
