    one could argue that the explosion of roguelikes had something to do with it

    Not only that, but Phil Spencer was wearing a shirt for it when he stopped by the Giant Bomb folks, meaning Microsoft is actually pushing it. That is even more surprising.

    Mostly I'm just excited to see so many different interpretations of the idea of time loops because it apparently took until just now for people to see battle royale games putting 100 people on a server and thinking of something more creative than "what if we just make PUBG again?"

    Fall Guys is the first "tons of players" game that I've been interested in (besides MMO's, which are a different beast)

    I don't get why people feel sorry for Mr Resetti.

    There's no more scumming, no more resetting; all choices are canon now. Everything he wanted, now is.

    Mr. Resetti didn't get fired. Mr. Resetti became as god in the Animal Crossing universe. He has found peace at last.

    As a kid during summers with rolling brownouts Mr. Resetti was my bane

  • mxmarksmxmarks Registered User regular
    The first time I got yelled at by Resetti I SWORE I saved.

    I sat there and listened to him just endlessly berate me when I KNOW I did nothing wrong. But no chance to interject. No time to say “wait maybe this is YOUR fault. Maybe YOURE the one mistaken here.”

    Just silently sitting until I was dismissed. Where nothing changed. My day proceeded as it always had, the berating really being meaningless as there was no further consequences. Just me feeling shitty and Resetti knowing he covered his ass by yelling at me.

    He prepared me for adult life in the work force and I thank him.

    The things Brad had to say about Jedi Fallen Order have me a good deal more excited for that game

    The fact that it's a Metroid-styled open exploration deal with multiple planets was something that I don't think their trailers has portrayed in the slightest

    I'm listening to Waypoint talk about it and they're basically saying "it's Sekiro."

    This might be the biggest gap between "this demo looks like shit" and "this game is awesome" I have ever heard of. It sounds like whoever decided to show what they did at EA Play did a huge disservice to the game.

    I thought the EA Play stuff looked fine is the thing

    But I was thinking "Linear narrative action adventure game"

    Not fucking... Metroid Souls

    You meditate at save points, and all the enemies respawn, and you can unlock shortcuts through areas as you progress

    "looks like shit" may have been a bit too harsh, but the footage they showed looked incredibly boring.

    Yeah
    What I gathered was that it was the second biggest tonal dissonance between public trailer and actual game ( with #1 being murder twins' European Tour). I don't know if that is a faith thing or what.

    Not nearly enough. He acts like the ableism is a small part of the humanity mechanic when it's literally the entire text of it and doesn't address any of the transphobia.

    I believe they recorded the video before the stuff about the poster came out, but ya an addition like the one they did about johnny silverhand should've been done

    he does touch on stuff a bit further on twitter (more threaded, not gonna post them all)

    I believe that Jedi Fallen Order is just Sekiro, sure.

    You play as a boring doof in both of them.

    Yeah. You can see it on Jeff's face during the conference, and then when he talks about it after the embargo lifts, but the actual game's tone is what you would expect from an 80s romp through Europe, killing nazis. In other words, very over the top and funny, unlike the press conference.

    It was a lot of action and gameplay and cool synth music

    The actual tone as being a comedic romp is not what I got from it, so to hear that’s actually what it is is a very pleasant surprise

    That is really weird. But even if that game turns out to be that good, the main dude looks soooo bland and generic, I cannot deal with it
