    Panzer Dragoon I & II Remakes 2019

    It's just a re-release I think, from Sega's "we've got no fucking money" era.

    Beyond Good & Evil 2

    That looks very impressive. I tend to go through a cycle with Ubisofts games where everything is awesome for like the first 7 hours, before you realise how limited it really is, but no one can touch them for sheer scale. Doing a whole city at the detail level of say, Spiderman, and then having that be a tiny fraction of the gameworld is astonishing, even if the gameplay turns out to be that standard AAA omni-genre that's no ones favourite, but broadly acceptable to the widest range of people.

    Panzer Dragoon I & II Remakes 2019

    Anyway, I played the PS2 version of the original one this year and watched a playthrough of Orta and Saga. They're pretty stock mechanically (except for Saga), I get the impression they were regarded as a bit enigmatic and arty at the time because they had some unconventional creature designs, a new agey soundtrack, and no plot so were open to extrapolation. Then the RPG one added a plot and it's the most stock, tropey thing ever - the evil Imperials are looking to revive the weapons of the advanced Ancient Empire, but a prophesied chosen one, yadda yadda, kind of collapsed the waveform on that. Also the state of Saturn emulation on PC is dire.

    The furries definitely count him as one of theirs

    Streamers Are The Worst

    Yeah, this forum is really bad for that sort of stuff, see the tumblr porno thread where the OP tried to equate pornography to fascism, made unnecessary digs at someone repeatedly who hadn't posted to try and bait them into the thread, and tied social justice to censorship and prudishness, while arguing from a social justice position. If there's a news story just link the fucking story and spare us all this shit, ta.

    Not much of one when it's Saturn or Dreamcast games LOL, no one bought them the first time around.

    Valve - Soon Shipping Other Companies' Games Again

    I'd never realised the original Half Life was where Keighly started his "last hours of" series. The Half Life one is now lost to the internet, although someone made a PDF version of it. The one for HL2 is still up, and paints it as more of a mess than I remember at the time, although I guess I was playing Opposing Forces and Blue Shift, and stuff like DoD and CS 1.6 were around 2001, so the sequel didn't seem like anymore than a regular development. The big where acknowledges the executive who "likes to ship" software is gone is amusing in retrospect.

    Yeah, but isn't that just nostalgia? I mean for people who didn't buy them before.

    Is there any market for rail shooters these days? Like I bought a musical one recently, but it flopped pretty hard.

    Still in far fewer threads than actual nostalgia discussion on here!

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    All of Capcoms franchise characters were designed to be focus tested cool guys for kids in that they never swear, drink, smoke or fuck (they have softened this since 2015). The only real adult content in older RE is blood for enemies, and MGS also had that.
