    How much did they get in to Fire Emblem? Because that's my personal GotY right now.

    Almost not at all. I think Jan/Ben/Dan are the only people who touched it.

    Yeah just for the sake of speculation I'll throw my vote at Apex for GOTY.

    I personally do not expect Total War 3 Kingdoms or Rebel Galaxy Outlaw to get much air time during GotY talks.

    Edit:
    Bloodstained Ritual of the Night probably gets more of a mention than those other two

    Yeah, there's always a bunch of cool stuff that for whatever reason the GB crew doesn't get into, so it doesn't get mentioned. Strategy/RTS games like Total War, MMO stuff like Shadowbringers, sim type stuff like Dirt Rally, etc. But those are all kinda niche, so I get it.

    How is Breakpoint?

    The West crew were pretty harsh on it, but I watched most of the QL and seemed fun. Is it a more involved Far Cry?

    For me the games I really liked this year so far:

    Control
    Apex Legends
    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
    Resident Evil 2
    The Division 2
    Gears 5
    (wow i cant believe I forgot) Outer Wilds


    I feel like I'm forgetting a million other things but this is what stands out in my head.

    Niche games get their own niche commendations (Best Strategy Game or whatever). As good as something like TW:3K is, that kind of title is not GOTY material to no fault of its own, and this isn't limited to GB.

    There's a shocking lack of polish with laggy menus, frequent subtitle/dialogue mismatches, wacky vehicle controls, physics bugs, etc. There are also rampant microtransactions and the always online is so bad it feels like it only exists to serve those microtransactions. It feels like a game where they'd strip out shit that serves no purpose like the loot system or doesn't work like the always online to end up with a better result in the sequel.

    Except they already made that better version, it's Wildlands. It feels like Wildlands 0.5.

    The GB staff not delving into MM2’s multiplayer is a shame. Watching streamers play versus can be exciting and hilarious when connections do not shit the bed.
    They played some on UPF last week actually. It wasn't a very compelling segment tbh but maybe that was just the levels they were choosing.
    I quite enjoyed the less traditional levels they played, spoiled by Rorie not caring to engage with them and then complaining about it.

  • AistanAistan Tiny Bat Registered User regular
    Rorie was in rare form that UPF.

    By which I mean he never shut up and interrupted everything more than usual.

    Personally I like Breakpoint - the microtransactions aren't necessary for progression and are fairly easy to ignore completely (they are all in their own menu basically).

    It can be janky though:

    I am hoping the format for GotY videos is dan as a quiz show host trying to get answers from the duders and it slowly becomes clear hes reading questions from the notebook and its all a grift.

    edit: I feel like there has to be a payoff in general, I could see him starting a podcast where he brings on experts to explain to him things like how to churn butter and it leads to a netflix series for adult learning.

    Outer Wilds is probably my GotY now that Doom isn't competing. Would appreciate that sucker getting high on the top 10.
    how can you possibly know that? What is it's bad?

    I get looking forward to a game but it's always wild to me that people say "oh it's my goty" before the dang thing is out

    I mean, I don't think it's entirely unwarranted. If you were big on DOOM and are bullish on the sequel, I don't see anything wrong with thinking it might end up being your GOTY before it comes out.

    I didn't?

    Doom Eternal is probably the last big game of the year I was interested in, now that it's not coming out this year, I don't need to consider it anymore, I'm probably going to go with Outer Wilds. Certainly something could show up to surprise me, hence why I was very specific to use the word "probably" and not "definitely."

    ya my misread fucked this whole thing up but in a more general sense I do see a lot of people that say "oh x game is my goty for sure" before it's even out, which is what I find bananas.

    Note: not my pov. I was just trying to make clear what was originally being said.

    I actually think the whole concept of goty is kinda dumb and I always end up bitching about when GB goty time comes around.

    There's a shocking lack of polish with laggy menus, frequent subtitle/dialogue mismatches, wacky vehicle controls, physics bugs, etc. There are also rampant microtransactions and the always online is so bad it feels like it only exists to serve those microtransactions. It feels like a game where they'd strip out shit that serves no purpose like the loot system or doesn't work like the always online to end up with a better result in the sequel.

    Except they already made that better version, it's Wildlands. It feels like Wildlands 0.5.

    Thanks. Yeah seemed like they disliked the system more than the gameplay. Maybe I'll give Wildlands a look. Just want another Far Cry that's not another Far Cry, I guess.

    Hmm, I wonder if Mario feels the need to act "in character" when wearing one of his themed suits. He does "meow" as Cat Mario at the end of a level in 3D World, which sort of supports that.

    It would just send mixed messages for a Bee Mario to be making a buzzing sound, I think. A "bzzt" sound is associated with "no wrong" and that is pretty close to a bees buzz. So like, you're fucking Bee Mario and he is making that sound, what do you do? Stop, keep going, intensify things, ease off?! I guess tone and inflection could hint at whatever is trying to be communicated, but it still seems like there would be a vagueness to things.

    We all know what Bees sound like

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
