  1. On the fence with RDR2.

     

    On the one hand, Rockstar games are sooo good.  I'm really interested in seeing how their first true "next gen" outing plays, and while I prefer GTA to RDR... I enjoyed the first RDR quite a bit.

     

    On the other hand, I really need to dial back the game purchases lately.  Matters of house and health (and other games) have eaten away at my disposable income this year.

     

    Might wait on reviews for this one and see if it's pulling in 9/10 and 10/10's before committing to it.  Though I'm guessing it will, and I'll end up preordering it. xD

      @PermaFox Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not. :P

      I'm teasing you!  RDR2 will be a great game! 😃

  2. Guessing they probably wanted everyone out ASAP after they knew they were being terminated... to prevent people going to their desks and putting critical game designs/assets/source onto a thumb drive, or deleting/sabotaging everything, or whatever.
  3. Pretty bizarre situation, I feel for the employees who are now out of work. I'm surprised Telltale was doing so poorly since the way they were pumping out new properties and episodes of their games, things seemed pretty good. Must've spent a ton of money securing bigger properties like Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, Game of Thrones, etc... because it never really seemed like a ton of money was spent improving the engine or overhauling game design. I'm personally hoping the final Walking Dead season somehow finds its way to getting finished. Was waiting for it to conclude to re-play the first two seasons, play through A New Frontier and wrap everything up with a pretty little bow. Now I'm not sure what to do. I picked up a disc copy of The Wolf Among Us for PS4 in memory of Telltale and go alongside TWD, Borderlands and Batman and round out the parts of their portfolio that I cared about.
  4. Since it's all about nostalgia, I would've preferred they go really classic with it and include like... Tekken 1 and the first Ridge Racer and that kinda stuff. I'd almost consider getting one in that case since damn, those games would bring back a flood of memories. I get why they'd go with the best/most popular ones though, for obvious reasons.
  5. Not sure what the deal is with these Tomb Raider games... but it's always so much easier to find steelbook editions on eBay instead of standard cases.  Seems that's the situation with Shadow, like Rise before.

     

    Don't like steelbooks, messes with the consistency of my collection. 😖

  6. I probably won't bother with the online service until something happens that makes me feel I need it (ie. maybe friends also getting the Switch to play Smash online or something). They announced that Final Fantasy 7, 9, 10, 10-2, 12 and World of Final Fantasy are all making their way to the Switch. I'll probably pass unless they make up a nice physical release for some of them (doubtful for 7 and 9 anyways)... I already own so many versions of the ones I'd want... but I wonder why 8 is being so neglected. 😖 EDIT: Oh, and Warframe is coming to the Switch on November 20th. I think someone here said they were hoping for that.
  7. Are you agreeing or disagreeing, because I can't tell? There are many degrees of what is qualified as effecting your quality of life. I believe the compulsions technically need to be more than one hour a day impacted by it to be considered OCD... but compulsive behavior that requires two hours a day and only really effects you is more mild than someone who hasn't left their house for years and effects their families and friends as well. The OP is clearly using the phrase incorrectly. And I honestly couldn't care less ... but I'm just saying if you're going to acknowledge the incorrect use of it and try to educate people, it should be done tactfully rather than jumping to extremes. Otherwise you aren't really giving the disorder any more careful attention than the person you're criticizing.
  8. In fairness, OCD can exist in more mild forms than the example you've dealt with. Measuring it simply in 'how many years it prevents someone from leaving their house' is also doing the disorder a disservice. Though I agree the phrase gets tossed around carelessly.
  9. I'd say it's a more complicated 100% than Ori. Both because of the boss battles / the general difficulty of the game... and also because the map in Hollow Knight is massive, intertwining and unclear at times of where to go and what to do next. It's a beautiful but somewhat frustrating thing at times. And there's a lot of optional (but awesome) stuff, including multiple endings, just below the games surface if you choose to dig deep enough.
  10. Love this game. Love it! It's beautiful, quirky, dark, challenging and fun in equal measure. It helps that 2D Metroidvania has quickly become my favorite game genre (thanks to games like this, Ori, Axiom Verge, etc). Glad more platforms are getting it and more gamers will get to enjoy it. I have it on PC and Switch, including a very rare collectors physical PC release from IndieBox that I was super lucky to get (managed to nab one of 70 leftover copies after the initial run for subscribers only that I missed) and haven't opened. And a plush of the little main character dude. The game fits like a glove on my Switch so I don't feel compelled to get it for PS4... but I'll definitely partake on the physical Switch copy when it comes. EDIT: It's coming to Xbox One as well, just for informations sake.
  11. Guess you guys were right. Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD, out now on PS4 and Xbox One, confirmed coming to Switch at some point.
  12. I'm not sure. From what I heard I think it follows the main games story faithfully (though I think on mobile at least it's more episodic). But same story or not, it's a completely different game. EDIT: Watching some comparison videos between Pocket and the Original. I'm surprised how close it comes to the original game at times. But it's still a different game by every other metric (graphics, gameplay, etc). Probably good if you want a different kind of FFXV fix or actually prefer how the Pocket Edition plays, but I don't think you can say the Switch "has FFXV" if it just gets a port of this mobile version. I'd guess there's probably a fair amount of side content on the cutting room floor as well.
  13. The FFXV Pocket Edition seems interesting and from what I hear, is a full game with a full story and maybe a good add on the Switch. I find it odd people are referring to the Pocket Edition and just "FFXV" interchangeably though. They aren't the same game. ie. I can't picture Final Fantasy XV coming to the Switch, but I could see the Pocket Edition.
  14. FROM: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning TO: Kingdoms of Amalur: Rereckoned
  15. THQ Nordic just acquired the 'Kingdoms of Amalur' IP from 38 Studios.

     

    Nice.

     

    Great game.  A little too MMO-ish for a single player game for my blood, but the combat was super fun and the world was beautiful.  Deserves some next gen TLC whether it's a sequel or a remaster.  Or both.

      Oh nice, I liked that game. Especially the DLCs were a surprise, spent about 15 hours on each of them trying to complete and explore everything. I'm hoping for a sequel.
