One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Yeah, and given EA hasn't put any focus on Nintendo platforms in years, the system will have to rely on the odd-ball Lego license - that's held by Warner Bros. for its Star Wars games.

“Yeah, I really do not understand PC RPG people. It's like they speak a totally different language. What about any of that was exciting? I guess a Baldur’s Gate sequel is a big announcement given how many people liked that game (as far as I'm concerned it was massively overrated) but other than that, why does it matter?”
The irony is that Corsi is so tilted that he didn't even pick up the fact that my "you need an intervention" joke was aimed at ResAlien 'lowering himself' to playing NBA 2K19. He then threw a temper tantrum over the fact that I... encouraged someone who said they were interested in Baldur's Gate to try Baldur's Gate. I'm guessing this flip out was mostly because we were trying to get this thread back on topic. Which, by necessity, meant he was no longer the centre of attention.

LOL. None of this is true. I wasn't even responding to your post, or Resalien not having played it. I was using Baldur's Gate III as an example of something someone might not "get" and demonstrating for you the mature way to handle it if someone didn't. You and OOTC both somehow managed to completely misinterpret that, as well, as is apparently your custom?

You guys are hilarious.

Link's Awakening looks great. When I first heard about it I considered a pass, as I had recently played through it on 3DS. But I'm in now.


I'm trying to remember if I played Luigi's Mansion 2, going to have to check the pile. I know I got the GC one for $5 years ago.

I actually just picked up and played though the second one (Dark Moon on 3DS) and had a really good time with it a couple months ago. Great level design and pacing, though the boss fights pretty much all sucked. I’d recommend checking it out, lots of used copies floating around.

Boss fights seems to be something that Nintendo really struggles with for their B-level Mario sub-series. The bosses in Mario & Luigi games are typically the low points for those games too.

This is definitely one of the more intriguing games of the show for me and they barely showed any of it. Can’t wait to see more!

Finally watching some of the coverages. I'm glad Ubi listened to some of the fan feedback from the Ghost Recon Breakpoint reveal and changed some things like adding the AI team back after initially being co-op or solo only. Not loving the leveling and loot system though, or the bullet sponge enemies. They seem to have added some feature from The Division and I don't like it

Looks like it uses a brighter version of the BOTW art style. Wonder if it sells better - performance dependent, of course - on Switch vs. PS4 and XB1 for that reason.

Wanted to post some other under the radar stuff that caught my eye:


Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin. A cool looking side scrolling action-RPG with rice farming sim elements. The voice acting is terrible but the gameplay looks great, and sign me up for anything with farming elements!





Panzer Dragoon. Looks like a Switch exclusive (so far) remake of the first Panzer Dragoon game. I've heard a lot about this series but never played any. There aren't a lot of on rails shooters these days, especially in a fantasy setting, so this could be a breath of fresh air. It was in the Direct but probably got lost amid some of the bigger hype announcements.





Carrion. A side scrolling Indie horror game where you're the monster. Looks freaky and violent, and fun!

It's been there since November. I never realized though they made expansions for it and that it's included in the Steam version. I got it free with my Xbox One but I traded it in when EB Games had one of their double trade-in value specials.

Looks like Walmart oversold some of their E3 pre-orders. For Link's Awakening, I got an email saying my estimated shipping date is January 6, 2020 (lol), then a subsequent email stating that any items unavailable to be shipped within the next three days will be canceled. Which, given this game doesn't come out until September, is interesting.
