    It kind of sounds to me like someone at Ubi Montreal saw the church sequence in Kingsman and thought it could be blown out into a video game.

    Total honesty: I put up on eBay my PS3 games that have had remasters on PC or PlayStation Now. If I want to play them again, I have options that don't involve hooking up a heavy and loud "Computer Entertainment System".

    In the case of one game, I actually managed to sell my PS3 copy and then buy the remaster in a Steam sale with the proceeds.Edited Yesterday by Unknown

    I've seen this gesture appear in the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh, but obviously that production has the budget of a couple cookies and a six-pack of Surge.

    I was, as noted, the guy who enjoys mashing "Fight" and thumbing through menus desperately while the enemy winds up for it's next turn. I will never stop thinking that's the "most fun" system of RPGs.

    But I'm curious if a Japanese voice track, plus experience playing 13-1/2 and 15, will make me like the game better this time.

    A lot of guys were mad because it looked like they threw in a Final Fantasy Twink simply because a person somewhere declared such a thing to be necessary, and how such a thing would spell doom for a return to a pre-VII cast where adults make the decision and teenagers are best left in the back row as summoner or the black mage kid.

    As well as the usual feelings of insecurity when people who like androgyny being allowed to have anything. Vaan was okay, but they should probably put "we fixed his abs" on the back of the box for The Zodiac Age.

    Blizzard can yell "fake news" all they want at the rumors, but you have players confirming that teams are dissolving over the cost. Not just fly by night players, but well established names like Team SoloMid. They don't even participate in my favorite games, but I know who they are and I assume they know what they're doing.

    There's a whole bunch of investors, as well as owners like Robert Kraft and retired sports celebrities who want to be the next Magic Johnson (LA Dodgers investor) and get in on the next big thing. Blizzard is trying to make this thing needlessly resemble North American pro sports (regional territorial rights, broadcasting deals, revenue sharing, etc) to woo them, but real sports is a monopoly riding atop a TV broadcasting rights bubble that pops when people who don't like sports are tired of paying to subsidize them with their TV dollars.

    On top of that, Blizzard's greed is cranking things up to the point that these kingpins might actually balk. A fee to buy a team and a fee to sell them? Rich people buy sports teams because they're inevitably worth more money as a limited number are available at any time, but having to pay bribe money to join and leave will scare people who aren't sure if they're actually going to make a profit anytime soon.

    How they monetize it will be another issue. There's no chance at all of the free Twitch stream MOBA fans are used to, they plan to use MLG TV and it sounds like charge people to watch anything. If they're going to do that, they should really take the "WWE pay per view" approach and broadcast qualifying rounds etc for free, and yes on competing platforms with more eyeballs. Then, if you want to see who wins the grand prize, the final round is a paid event.Edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    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 last month 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.
