I have been gaming since I was six years old, back in the beautiful year of 1990 (man, I’m getting old XD). Graduated as an Industrial Engineer. Fan of anime, manga and comics. I’m partial towards the consoles and games from Nintendo and Sony, although I would probably play in every platform in existence if I had the time and money to do so. I’m a bit of a retro gamer, but without disparaging modern games. Unyielding fan of The Legend of Zelda and Mega Man, I will probably keep playing games from those franchises until I die.

    So is not as over the top or crazy as Saints Row IV was? I’m still planning to play it at some point, but that sounds like a major letdown. Not only because of how trippy Saints Row IV was, but also considering Agents of Mayhem is supposed to riff on old Saturday Morning Cartoons, the set-up for even more insanity of that style was already there in the premise.Edited 2 days ago by Unknown

    Given that I have not played PUBG at all, I don’t know if it merits any “Game of the Year” accolades, but the general question of whether or not Early Access games should qualify for that kind of thing is intriguing to me.

    As other commenters above have pointed out, I think it’s possible to make the argument that the line between an “unfinished” and a “finished” game has become increasingly blurry in this digital era of ours. On one hand, yes, there are those Early Access games that have become so feature complete that their official release feels more like a formality. On the other hand, how many times has a game from the major Western publishers been released in such a broken and buggy state that they need several patches afterwards just to finally work properly? Does that really counts as a “finished” game?

    For not talking about those games that continue to get upgrades and additional content after launch at a steady pace, to the point that they become fairly different creatures from how they originally started.

    At this rate, I would not be surprised if eventually the difference between an Early Access game and any other game becomes merely an arbitrary label.

    @TernBird It seems to me that what Yoko Taro really needed was to associate with a studio with the development skills to finally do justice to his particular vision. In that sense, the partnership with Platinum became a match made in heaven. Hopefully they will manage to work together again.

    This is still one of my favorite action games of all time. Indeed, it was actually mind-blowing at the time how it expanded on the mechanics of the Classic series. I also remember being particularly hit by the melancholic tone of the storyline (as barebones as it was compared to modern games). The ending in particular pretty much cemented X as my favorite iteration of the Blue Bomber.Edited 4 days ago by Unknown

    My father has never been particularly fond of videogames (indeed, he kind of hates them), although ironically he did foster the gaming habit in my brother and me. Mostly by using videogames as the proverbial carrot at the end of the stick to motivate us to do well at school (you know, the classic “Ok, I will buy you this game/console, but only if you get good grades on the semester”). That being said, he does like some classic tabletop games. Indeed, he is actually pretty good at chess and dominoes.

    My mother isn’t particularly fond of videogames either (I think my brother and me only managed to convince her of trying Wii Sports once), although oddly enough, she does like to play those card games that have come with every version of Windows since 95 (you know the ones: Solitaire, Free Cell, Spider, Hearts, etc.). She can even spend entire hours playing them at times.

    @chaoticBeat Yeah, I know. Another confirmation that the universe has a sick sense of irony. (DAMN YOU UBISOFT!).

    It seems that those (frankly unrealistic) projected numbers rest on two (incredibly risky) assumptions:

    1. That the popularity of the MCU will lead more people to pick Marvel vs Capcom Infinite (which seems kind of unlikely considering that fighting games are primarily a niche genre these days, and that the fanbase of prior MvC games is not happy with how they have handled the game).

    2. That streamlining and “westernizing” (for lack of a better word) Monster Hunter will finally allow the series to take off outside of Japan (which all things considered seems somewhat unlikely as well, indeed you have to wonder if this might not have the opposite effect and rather alienate the entrenched fanbase of the franchise on these shores).

    So… yeah, I don’t see their overall situation improving a lot. Still, I’m not so sure if they are actually capable of leaving console gaming behind. As far as I know, unlike other major Japanese publishers, their sales on mobile are apparently pretty middling at best.

    Once again I’m the dissenting voice here, as I not only don’t mind these ports, but actually would welcome more of them. Indeed, I’m actually surprised they didn’t decide to port the recent remaster of the Resident Evil remake along with the Revelations games.

    Granted, simply making ports won’t help Capcom in the long term, but considering that the Switch so far seems like the perfect console for “nostalgic” gaming, and that Capcom’s back catalogue is full of gems (many of which never made it to Nintendo consoles), bringing more of those to the platform seems like a no-brainer.

    I kinda expect that more games of this type will come from Indie developers rather than the big players. Even then, I have to admit I would play at least half of these games if they ever materialized.

    Also, I wonder what Nintendo’s angle would be for a “Battle Royale” game, considering the recent precedents of Breath of the Wild (pretty much their take on both Open World RPG’s and the Post-apocalyptic Survival genre), Splatoon (Team shooters) and ARMS (Fighting games).

    Wonder Woman managed to recover some of my goodwill regarding the DC Extended Universe, but I’m still leery about Justice League. Indeed, none of the trailers revealed so far have done much for me.

    If anything, the jokey tone in them makes me believe the filmmakers took the wrong lessons from the critical trashing of Batman v Superman.

    For the record: No, BvS was not a mediocre movie because it was so “serious, dour and dark” and in need of “lightening up”. BvS was a mediocre movie because its script was a mess, it fundamentally misunderstood key characters (especially Batman and Lex Luthor), its attempts at emotional moments were unearned, the delivery of its core political and philosophical themes was muddled, and it was ultimately more concerned with setting up the rest of the Extended Universe (and in the most illogical ways possible I might add) than in telling a satisfying story.
