    I've never owned any Mega Man games and don't count myself a fan. I can understand the desire to put the franchise through the wringer and squeeze out the obvious Astro Boy influences, because we're USED to things involving robot people turning into what-measure-is-a-man morality plays.
    And frankly, the anime-ness of the aesthetic turns people off, including me. And I actually like cute things! Kirby is absolutely my jam. But something about Mega Man just never clicked for me. By the time Marvel vs Capcom 2 came out, I enjoyed beating the daylights out of Servbots etc with western superheroes and Resident Evil cast.

    But holy crap, I don't see how if you just remove the Poor Man's Astro Boy suit and the giant googly eyes and the sweatdrops and all the other kawaii crap, that you don't just have another Robocop reboot. The best option I could think of would be to paint the Light/Wily/robots dynamic as something akin to Real Steel, except that's already been done.Edited 3 times. Last edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    Glad someone explained this game. I keep seeing it go by on the big list of streams and feeling I forgot something.

    The name itself implies it's for an audience that I'm not a part of, as "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" implies some sort of prestigious heft like "Tom Clancy's The Division" which only works if you had some idea who that person even is.

    So thankful that Tetris spoilers are being tampered down! My desire to play the original was destroyed when Nintendo Power babbled about the rocket ship.

    I can't wait to find out how it ends. My friend says that the stack goes over the top of the window but I find that unbelievable.

    @camchow Persona 4 became a large thing partially because Giant Bomb chose it for their "Endurance Run", where their staff played the entire game through from the start to the true ending and joked and entertained themselves the whole way through.

    It wasn't wholly responsible for the phenomenon, but it did help elevate P4 beyond an otaku/JRPG niche passion title like Xenoblade or Tokyo Mirage Sessions.

    The other crappy thing they did is they sat on these restrictions until the game was already out, leaving streamers no opportunity to cancel their pre-orders. Instead they had the gall to put out a release effectively asking you play a promotional demo of the game, and tried to spoil-but-not-spoil suggestions like "Don't show video of THAT event, or A Certain Suspicious Individual Wearing Green". These are all useless warnings if you're playing it blind, since you wouldn't know what the heck an "awakening scene" is anyway.Edited 2 times. Last edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    It'll all end up on LiveLeak or whatever.
    Seriously, this game's been out for months in other regions. This is ridiculous.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    We're also in an age where everything with a USB port wnd a data connection is an attack vector, so they could probably replace "bombs" with "let's upload the virus to the computer" and achieve the desired effects without the awkward aftertaste.

    The plate drop honestly, after seeing Rogue One received so well, things could work as-is. The Midgar plate event is similar to an Imperial middle manager turning the friggin' Death Star on an allied city just to wipe out some high ranking rebels hiding within.

    One thing they could do is change it so the event isn't at the hand of someone who later becomes a player favorite like Reno (who hops down to push the button and fight you) but an unredeemed psycho like Heidegger. If the Turks show up just to kidnap Aerith but are as shocked as anyone else by the plate collapse... It would 'sell' the moment a bit more and their eventual "this place is undone, I quit" attitude would make more sense.

    I bought a collector edition in 2003, when such things were significantly cheaper than they are now. They were, frequently, just an extra $25 or so.

    I never buy any of them now. Not a one. They now frequently cost more than two copies of the base game for some reason, which is just unconscionable.

    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.
