    If I've learned anything from the no-longer-new age of personality based streaming (inc twitch and whatever yt you choose to follow), it's that watching them play a game you understand/are good at is a recipe for frustration. There are definitely times with all my channels that I go full podcast mode with them and stop watching the dumpster tier gameplay.

    This is the future. This is what we built. This is what we wanted. It must have been. Because we all had the fucking choice, didn't we? It is only our money that allows commercial culture to flower. If we didn't want to live like this, we could have changed it at any time, by not fucking paying for it.

    So let's celebrate by all going out and buying the same burger. -transmet

    seeing Alex play Mega Man was a big nope nope nope for me. Then again I bet that setup has a ton of lag.

    Jeff's Pro Skater Intro is still one of my absolute favorite things. I assume we have Jan to thank for it.

    I mean he just played and talked about TimeSpinner, which was the other one of those.

    So maybe?

    I'm not even going to try to rank them, but the more I play CrossCode, the more I think it's in my GOTY list for 2018.

    I think I'm going to settle for Obra Dinn, Celeste, CrossCode, BATTLETECH, and The Hex as my Top 5.

    I love how Jeff explained the exact sentence that took it too far for him, and then they made that sentence the title of the episode.

    Well, based on the Unfinished I am 100% out on Anthem, the art design is really nice but hearing that the mission structure is "pick up one mission, go out into the world, fly all the way there, shoot some guys, come back" and not a "grab 5 quests, go trundle round the zone doing them and come back to town when you have full bags" feels just wrong for that type of game (at least for how I play them).

    Still hope it does ok though, because I don't want to see Bioware being consigned to the battlefield map pack mines or whatever.

    They recently posted about adding a social hub based on feedback, where you can pick up contracts as well, so it's possible there will be more quality of life improvements once they see how everyone plays the game.

    Hooo boy I went back and listened to the news section in this one. Randy Pitchford... blech. I'm not assuming anything, but the mere fact that he might piss someone off so much they would make these kinds of allegations says a lot.

    I have not seen anything about Anthem that excites me. It looks like Warframe with a little more money behind it, and sadly Warframe got old pretty quick.

    I hope it's successful though. I'd like BioWare to have a win.

    seeing more and more loot shooters that are more on the generic side to become platform games, I cant help but imagine the people behind hellgate london being super pissed off that they basically came too early.

    Athem looks rough. The core gameplay looks fine, but the mission structurr, story and npc interactions look terrible. I though this game was going to do alright, but now I'm a bit worried about Bioware. Bioware fans will be disappointed, and loot shooter fans get to play the Division 2 like a month later.

    Nah, Hellgate: London shipped in a bad state because they ran out of money. I think they would have kicked off a loot shooter craze seven years early had they kept it in development a bit longer.

    Yeah, while Hellgate was buggy at launch... I still had a ton of of fun with it.

    And the last patch they were working on before they got EA'd was definitely moving in the right direction.

    Playing it alongside would be a super cool thing to do (trace his steps and compare to his choices lol)

    My only potential disappointment for Mass Alex would be if Alex goes full girl scout Shepard for the second game, mostly because so many of the renegade options are very very good
    But the problem with ME2's morality balance is such that he's either going to generally skew only one way or end up losing a bunch of squadmates, and he paragonned super hard in ME1

    Re: Anthem, the demo servers completely shit the bed (and brought down the origin service itself for a hot minute), so it seems interest must probably exist for it despite the whole "they just plagiarised Warframe/Destiny" bandwagon surrounding every video about the game

    People are totally interested, but I don't think it'll hold their attention as the game just doesn't look like it'll come together.
    Hopefully I'm wrong, I don't want to see yet another once-great company get shuttered by EA.

    Man I don't know. If I want a Looter Shooter I'd want it to be more like Diablo with rifts and all but I figure doing that in a 3D enviroment must be a pain in the ass to randomize and still look good. I'm not a fan of raids exactly either. I wish for example that Destiny aped WoW's Mythic Dungeon ideas with their Strikes but looks like they're moving in a different direction.

    Here's hoping Borderlands 3 nails it. Well...then again I remember the latest happening at Gearbox and eh...
