  1. The Wholesome Games showcase was pretty cool. I think I'm just bored of mainstream big budget games; I rarely play them, and they're often so long that even if I do I never finish them. Indies are where it's at. Nintendo defo had the best out of the main presentations - was actually exactly what the Switch needs. But it wasn't big or surprising - nothing really drew my interest that much personally.
  2. I finally played through ABZU this week. Amazing little title
  3. They could likely show one of the 2 remaining characters from the current fighter's pass.
  4. During the Square-Enix presentation they said something along the lines of "and now something from our Japanese studio".... Then the trailer begun with the words: 'With the memory of their struggle buried deep within their hearts' and I just thought, "oh, it's going to be one of those types of games". Why can't Square Enix just be normal
  5. You know I get that this is supposed to be a big deal, but I can't get posted how uninspiring the trailer was. Boring voice over and a bunch of close ups of objects.
  6. As much as I am interested in their big headline games, in really interested in smaller suprise titles. The thing is, there is so much that they have already announced that we have not seen, that it's not unrealistic for some of the following to show up: Pikmin 4 Bayonetta 3 Splatoon 3 New Retro Games title BOTW2 Whatever Monolith Soft is working on. But Nintendo never show all their cards, so I'll really only expect one or two of these. Oh and smash character reveals.
  7. I wish I had the patience to get into FromSoftware/Souls-like games because they look so damn interesting. I'm just terrible at them
  8. This looks like a £19.99 Xmas present idea that even then I would look past because it's too expensive.
  9. Do you also get the female Link DLC for BotW as well? I hear that's included.
  10. To be honest I never saw this at a conference but u lived the Shenmue Dreamcast Magazine trailer:
  11. That's probably the best one of recent times. (The E3 presentation had the Japanese VO & Eng subs which I can't find anywhere apart from reaction videos). So epic - in the truest sense of the word.
  12. I think with the podcast Jones doesn't really have direction when it comes to topics. Kyle would play devils advocate and try to take a conversation somewhere and draw out peoples opinions where Jones doesn't really do that. A poor, but recent example would be the Hall of Fame topic last week. Easy subject to play a bit of Devils Advocate - e.g 'does this game *really* need to be in there?, What did it really bring to the table?'*, 'They skipped 'X' game, obviously not a good game, right?'. World have been easy to name drop games they either submitted for hall of greats
  13. Ahhh not this shit again. Nintendo is so flipping backwards this gen and refuse to change course at every turn. Coming from the amazing social aspects of Wii U I can't help but despair lol
  14. Honestly just had a lot going on at the time. I mean I've been waiting for almost 20 years - what's one more?
  15. I still have not played Shenmue 3. Considering how vehemently I campaigned for it, considering how much I backed it financially, considering how much I still absolutely adore the series, I just haven't started it. I think I'll play it later this year. I thought that playing it right away would have set my expectations too high and was all just s bit too much pressure for what should be an enjoyable pass time, and I didn't want that. Then I had a chilg and it was just too much to squeeze in much of any gaming at all! I think, now, my expectations are set accurately,
  16. There is a lot of great stuff coming out, so u think there will be less 'big news' (at least from Sony/Nintendo) and more updates on stuff we already know about like FF16 and Metroid Prime .
  17. Yeah I echo a lot of people already that I rarely buy games full price (or ever - given the wealth of free games available!). But there are a few times when I will absolutely buy the game day one regardless. FF7r is a recent example, if it was £100 I still would have bought it. But they are so few and far between that I really don't mind. I wait so long to play games that before I get around to buying them they end up on my system already, or are cheap enough.
  18. I know what you mean, but I think review outlets feel pressured to review the biggest (read: most marketed) games because they will gain them more views. Then of course it's the issue that *technically* those types of games are often pretty good. They generally run well and have a good quality polish about them so they review well enough. Of course that doesn't always indicate if that game is fun or not (hence EZA obsessing about 'swimming in 7s', because fun games aren't always the best reviewed games). But yeah I get that feeling - I don't read reviews anymore to tell
  19. Also, man I forgot how cool upcoming games really are - I wish I had more time to play them!
  20. Take a break and play smaller games. I felt like that for a while. I think it was Life is Strange that hooked me back into really enjoying games (especially single player games) again. Remember that the games industry has grown tremendously as well. Whilst that means there are big blockbuster games, there are also a ton of smaller creative titles that I'm glad are available. Pick something completely out of left field and see if it clicks, or tackle your backlog. I posted in games I completed in 2020 thread about it, but although I haven't got around to the big PS
  21. So are we all old enough that I can make a joke about the quality of Mission Impossible on the N64?
  22. Disney Mega Drive games probably, but that's going back a fair bit now! Of course there is the Batman Arkham games for something more modern
  23. I actually bought Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Wii U (Wii mode Shop channel). Anyway my nunchuck stopped working and I never played them. Do they run well on dolphin at all? I defo don't fancy posting again for them.
  24. Hang On - obviously as a kid I was pretty crap, but I came back to it a lot through Shenmue's You Arcade & Yakuza Club Sega Arcade. Still can't win :/
  25. It's argue that it isn't standard practice. Shenmue was sold as this news type of open world game (or FREE if you go by Yu Suzuki's definition), but after GTA open world games seemed to define themselves by larger and larger spaces, and less by the intricate details. I always argue Shenmue has more in common with Life is Strange than modern open world games. Keeping with the theme of the thread I think open world games keep growing with technological advancements, but instead could have focused on more detail in a smaller area. Mostly feels spread too thin.
