    Infamous: Second Son was developed by Sucker Punch, I think.

    @hamfighter I, too, have barely played any of the mainline Pokémon games, but I always show up for the weirder offshoots, like this and Pokémon Snap or what have you.

    So far, Detective Pikachu has been a real treat. It's a breezy, agreeable point-n'-click adventure that plays like a Poké-centric little brother to the Phoenix Wright games.

    While the game is neither terribly taxing nor terribly long, the characters are charming and the breezy pacing makes for a succinct experience that ambles amiably along right up to the point where you've had your fill.

    All in all, it serves as a nice little low-key, low-stakes amuse-bouche before the similarly gentle, yet epic Ni No Kuni II.Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    Oh...Romancing SaGa 2.

    Years ago, Squeenix remade Saga 2 (not Romancing SaGa 2, mind you, but the Game Boy game we know in the West as Final Fantasy Legend II) for the DS and I would kill for a translated version of that remake. For a hot second, that's what I thought this announcement was for.

    But Romancing SaGa 2 is cool, too. I never played the original but I dabbled with the remake of the first RS on PS2. If nothing else, it looks like Square-Enix learned their lesson from the hideous FF6 mobile port when it comes to remastering 16-bit pixel art - this RS2 remaster looks quite nice.Edited December 2017 by Unknown

    As someone who is as intrigued by the Freddy lore to the same degree with which they abhor the Freddy gameplay, this article was the perfect thing to stumble upon as I sit down with my coffee.

    Great stuff.

    "The game was primarily killed because game testers were bored with "Ragtag" and could complete the entire game in 8 hrs."

    This sounds like nonsense.

    All accounts on record have been pretty definitive that, in terms of a tangible, playable build, there was barely enough to throw together a vertical slice that would appease EA management. Plenty of stuff existed as design docs but the only thing even remotely resembling a finished game simply consisted of the Dodger character walking around a small environment with very limited interaction.

    But no, you've got the inside scoop that not only is every account on record incorrect, but that the game was in a start-to-finish playable form (eight whole hours!) and was so far along in development that it was in the testing stage. And also, all the testers hated it.

    Shockingly, I think I'm going to go with the extensively-researched journalist's account of the situation as opposed to...whatever it was that you were saying.Edited October 2017 by Unknown

    Huh, that's odd. Especially considering that it's been earmarked for 4K & HDR upgrades on Xbox One X.

    Here's to hoping that "4K/HDR exclusivity" doesn't become a thing.

    @Broen13 Microsoft has stated that old Xbox discs will, in fact, work.

    Which is great because I've got a lot of discs.

    Super Smash TV is one of my favorite SNES games ever and probably the only decent port of the game due to the layout of the SNES controller.

    The controls and gameplay mechanics make sense almost immediately and require little explanation, allowing even the uninitiated to jump in and start slaughtering mutants in the noble pursuit of toasters and cash prizes.

    A simple, addictive little arcade-action gem that only gets better with a second player?

    I would, in fact, buy that for a dollar.Edited October 2017 by Unknown

    If nothing else, it's the cheapest and easiest way to play the PC-Engine Super CD version of Rondo of Blood, which is a game that should be welcome in everyone's library.

    ...well, I guess that version is also tucked away in the PSP remake of Rondo, but accessing it requires actually having to play the PSP remake of Rondo and...ehhhh.
