    Am I reading that right? Mega Man goes to school now? This upends everything I though I knew about Mega Man (which, admittedly, isn't much in retrospect).

    @davedalrymple11 This was actually a big problem in Oblivion. It was often safer to wander through the woods than it was to take the roads anywhere because you were almost guaranteed to be constantly harassed by bandits and monsters on them (and they were often a considerably higher level than you). I think they might have eventually fixed that in one of the later patches.

    The fact that Skyrim tries to funnel you down a road near the beginning of the game might have been at least partly an attempt to tell returning players that the roads are safe places to walk now.

    @Kuni-Nino If DD season 2 is anything to go by, Geralt will spend most of the season in the background being overshadowed by other characters Hissrich is clearly more interested.

    @Jaegermeist3r I still have a backlog of games I picked up for WiiU at the end of it's life. I don't know if I'm ever going to get back to any of those games with how much great stuff has been coming out for the Switch.

    I've been playing in handheld all weekend and the only issue that's been really bugging me is enemies occasionally popping in right on top of me. Is that fixed at all by docking?

    It's been a looong time since I've dug into a non-pokemon JRPG, but my love of the switch compels me.

    @Modern-Clix I doubt everyone upset over the booty-short thongs and incredulously form fitting tops is American, but I thinks it is helpful for us American's to remember sometimes that our attitudes aren't necessarily universal truths. As if our own internal bickering didn't already make that self apparent. Now, Rex's creepy little mouth on the other hand...Edited December 2017 by Unknown

    Anybody remember back when EA would occasionally trot out a developer from a popular studio so they could claim that EA had no influence in their decision to include things like micro-transactions in their games?

    I thought Justice League was OK. It feels like WB is trying to move the DCEU in a better direction, but it's probably too little too late. I'm not sure how I feel about WB's plans to introduce "non-DCEU" DC movies, but it sounds like the first steps in taking the DCEU around to the back of the shed. The worst part is I think Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck were criminally miss-used. They could have been spectacular as Superman and Batman in better movies...

    "The best sorts of free-to-play games incentivize you to spend money on it because you're actively enjoying your time with it."

    Hence why I've happily spent the same amount of money as a new, full-priced AAA game in Warframe.
