  1. Nintendo has a ton of already announced games that are yet to be released. Some of them have dates, some of them don't. SMT V news got leaked, so I expect it to be present at the Direct. We haven't heard anything Bayonetta 3 related for too long, she must show up as well. I'm 95% sure we'll see both. I think it's still too early for a proper Metroid Prime 4 gameplay trailer. Maybe they'll show a teaser, but I don't think they'd do that. I don't expect to see much of BOTW 2 either, but its appearance is more likely. Other than that, I don't know. They can show more Mario + Rabbids 2 footage. Maybe they'll remind of the new Mario Golf, since its release date is approaching. No More Heroes 3 is a couple of months away. And there are tons more already announced games like Project Triangle Strategy, Splatoon 3 that can show up in some form. That said, I kinda want to see something new. There hasn't been a new Mario Kart game in 7 years. I know MK8 Deluxe is still selling like hot cakes and never leaves the charts, but come on. The last Donkey Kong is also 7 years old at this point. Regarding Switch Pro, I believe it's not a part of the Direct. The tweet says it's going to be 40 minutes of software stuff. I expect Nintendo to announce the new console in a random tweet a month later. Wasn't Switch Lite announced the same way? But who knows. I could be wrong.
  2. Thanks to the person who has gifted me a premium membership! A lifetime one as well, holy cow. Very unexpected, but much appreciated! Don't know who it was gifted by. I have a couple of guesses based on my recent forum profile visitors, but I can't be sure because a user can just go straight to the trophy page. Anyway, I guess I'll try not to let your money go to waste and take advantage of my newly unlocked features.



  3. I have mixed feelings. Some games were exciting: Forza Horizon 5 looks super fun, Stalker 2 exceeded my expectations, Somerville is intriguing. Some were meh: Halo looks like Halo, didn't care about Redfall and Starfield's CG teaser trailers (both looked super generic), too many old games like Among Us and Sea of Thieves. Some game were missing: where the heck was Hellblade 2?
  4. Dude, that music 😂. If you're from Russia, or a neigbouring post-soviet country, you were most likely laughing when it started playing.
  5. Looks great.
  6. The Medium and Stalker 2 trailers had a "Console launch exclusive" screen. This one didn't.
  7. So The Medium was a timed exclusive, huh. Not surprised, tbh. A friend of mine has played this game on PC. He said that the idea and the story were interesting, Akira Yamaoka's music was great, but the gameplay was underwhelming. You mainly spend time exploring the world. There are a couple of stealth sections and intense set pieces, but that's it. The game is apparently pretty short as well.
  8. For each new PlayStation hardware release there was an Astrobot game (or set of mini-games) to accompany it. And PS VR 2 is apparently being developed as we speak. So if I were to put two and two together, I'd say Team Asobi is preparing a new Astro game for it. But in reality, who knows. You can't be sure, unless you work there. We can only speculate on rumours.
  9. Short answer: no. The game is more grindy than it is difficult. Some bosses pose a problem if you don't have the best equipment. But after you unlock fulton launcher, bandana, and other useful items, they are managable. When you start having problems, google the order of side missions you need to beat to ulock those items. As far as I know, the difficulty and the bosses' health bars are the same regardless of if you're playing solo or in co-op (someone please correct me if I'm wrong). Personally, I got the platinum without doing co-op once. The only time I was playing with other people was when I boosted in the MP mode.
  10. Thankfully, there are plenty of games in the Shin Megami Tensei franchise other than Persona . 😂 I laughed so hard at this. 100% true. This sounds like a lot of PS2 generation games. Everything was edgy. Even Jak II was like this, as you of course know. 😁. Jak became an angry edgelord, and he was always surrounded by female characters with massive badonkers or similarly angry dudes. Was the dilogue in F3 and F4 actually good? I played through F3, didn't pay much attention to the main story honestly, but I remember being a little underwhelmed by the end of it. The side quests were more memorable to me. 10+ years later, I watch dialogue clips from the game, and they make me facepalm. The final confrontation with the main bad guy was very poorly done IMO. Haven't played F4, but I see tons of similar clips with bad dialogue. Of course, they are cherry picked as the worst examples, so I try to keep that in mind. But at the same time, I rarely hear positive words about the F4 writing overall.
  11. Thanks!
  12. Lol yeah, I've heard the scenes in episode 2 were so explicit that they made two versions, censored and uncensored 😄 Naruto (episodes 56-85) So, I finished the 2nd and 3rd arcs, which were pretty epic. The conclusion of the 3rd one was especially powerful. In some way, it splits the series into "before" and "after". I also felt like the pacing has become a little better, the "Shonen episode recap syndrome" was not as strong 😄. I watched until somewhere in the middle of the 4th arc, and then kinda stopped. I'll probably come back to Naruto soon and finish that arc at least, we'll see. Jiraiya has become my favourite character. Sorry, Kakashi. Ijiranaide, Nagatoro-san (Episode 1) One episode in, I'm already hooked. I wounldn't have ecpected this girl and this show to plant themselves into my soul so fast. I was like "Why is everyone talking about this show, and why is this girl's face everywhere?". After 1 episode, some clips and a few manga scans, I know why, and I want more. The show is about a girl who started bullying (or messing with, if you don't think this word fits here) a quiet guy she meets at school, and how their relationship develops after that. Even though it starts with her literally making him cry, somehow the show becomes super cute and adorable as you learn more about the characters. I like the animation style. The reactions and faces Nagatoro makes are very expressive, the original mangaka drew some interesting ones, for sure. Just look at them: Anyway, this is probably not the most unique show ever, but I can't wait to watch more. P.S. This pic is for @Honor_Hand

  14. It's not just about loadings and portals. It's also about the locations themselves. Less walls, fewer corridors, etc. It's level design. But yeah, I'm not saying the difference would make people's jaws drop, open world games are already pretty advanced and detailed.
