    I did enjoy 9 and I beat it, but it didn't move me or give me that feeling the other games did.

    Xenogears has a notoriously convoluted (and apparently unfinished?) story. In all honesty that's kind of what I loved about the game - it made you think about what was going on on the surface, and what was going on behind the scenes (the conversations between Citan and the Emperor or whoever that was; everything with Billy and Ethos). I can't speak much to the unfinished-ness, but every comment I've read from people who remember it say how rushed the second disc felt.

    I want to love Monster Hunter so much, but there's just so much shit going on it's always difficult for me to keep everything straight. I found Dauntless to be a good, simpler alternative. :laugh:

    Now cyberpunk delayed till September 17. What the f*** is even the point of making these release dates at this point. That’s the 3rd major title to get a delay after Last of Us 2 and FF7.

    That's why I think companies like Blizzard and Rockstar were notorious for their "it's ready when it's ready" approach.

    They’re big (and I guess trusted) enough to have that luxury, Valve is in a similar but even more exaggerated place because they can just never make a game again and still be making millions/billions off Steam. All the other game studios have to answer to production companies who give them money to make the games or who just outright own the studios at this point.

    Part of me feels like the way this is all done is unsustainable and there’s a bubble that’s going to burst at some point, but then it’s also pretty much how all the ‘art’-for-profit stuff works

    A once big retro StarCraft fan, I play Brood War excessively but that is few and far between.

    Modern Warfare is pretty cool, best CoD that has been made in a long time (I do not buy a new CoD every October, either, but MW is a timeless classic).

    With Source 2, you would imagine that the emergence of Half-Life 3 and other modded games like Counter Strike and Team Fortress would follow the same runtime engine.

    New NVIDIA GPUs are releasing, looking forward to getting my hands on it. Also, price range should be less than a 2080Ti and while an increased, yet noticeable performance difference.

    Playing Fallen Order. Started on Jedi Master difficulty. Playing now on Story mode.
    “Why?” I hear you ask...

    Because this old dog wants to be entertained, not focused on micro-timing parries etc etc etc.

    Force pushing stormtroopers off cliffs reminds me of Skyrim and the Unrelenting Force shout.

    for the hype.

    I’d rather these people take their time and get shit right prior to release date than releasing something that needs to be patched a billion times or requires multiple DLC’s to really be considered “complete”

    I definitely dont mind them taking their time, but I’d rather they take all the time in the world and give a realistic release date instead of rushing to say a date that they aren’t 100% sure they are going to make.

    I actually completely understand the whole story mode approach. If I remember games fondly years later, it's typically because the story captivated me or the environment pulled me in.

    It's rarely, if ever, because I found the puzzles amazing or fondly remember the asset management.

    I always pronounced it may-ko as well but I've heard several people say mah-ko.

    That trailer is so dope though and I can't wait to smack the shit out of Scarlett.

    I'm fine with game developers delaying products until they're happy with the final product. Thing about 2077 that's weird to me is that now it's right before the Series X comes out. Do you wait and play it on the new console or do you play it because you can't wait anymore and crush it before the Series x even releases?

    I've actually heard more people call it mah-ko. I've ALWAYS pronounced it may-ko though.

    That trailer was mind blowing. The last 40 seconds or so where they played the boss theme... hit me right in the feels. This game was such a major part of my childhood. To know that Part I is only 2.5 months away is amazing. I cannot wait.

    After advent children and whatever they did to my poor poor kingdom hearts story I cannot let go of the fear that this is going to go wrong. Its felt like the story/writing part of square fell off a cliff many years ago

    The bolded only occurs when you think back to the late 90's NYR handling or prospects, draft picks and trades.

    Was KH 1 and 2's dialogue and weird pauses as awkward and bad as it was in KH3? I don't remember it being an issue for me but I was also much younger and less discerning. It was painful to listen to when I gave it a go.
