Is the new MST3K any good?

A lotta people seem to like it! I think it's pretty decent. First episode they were clearly finding their footing though

I still want a bunch of space environmentalists to come after her for blowing up an entire planet to get rid of one species.

The space environmentalists would probably be more upset about her killing off a species that was the only known predator to an organism that could easily lead to a galaxy wide collapse of all life now that the metroids are gone

Seeing how zombie fans are mindlessly drawn to any game that has zombies in it maybe they're the real zombies

I wonder what people will find most disappointing about the BG&E2 news? Holding up early access prototyping as a good thing? Randomly generated planets which always turns out to be hot trash for anything? Th-

I do not have much hope for a good game. Did anyone else get the impression from the devs giving the speech after the trailer reveal that they either have no idea what they are doing or they are mis-guided on what made BG&E fun and good? That odd over-emphasis when she said "diversity." Like yeah the cast is diverse, there are animal people for christ sake why you need to bring it up?

My guess is that Ancel is gambling that he can deliver a game that hits all the buzzwords Ubi's execs want to hear ("Procedural design!" "A Destiny-style shared world experience!") just to get back into this world, with the hope that if it is successful they will let him do the game he really wants to make.

(Spoiler, chief: They are never going to do that. If this is a success, they are going to make you do it again, and again. You work for Ubisoft.)

There isn't actually anything beyond a tech demo for BG&E2 and there is never going to be. Ancel has shown the whole thing as a dead-man's switch if Vivendi pushes through with their hostile take over. If Vivendi takes over Ancel leaves and shrugs to the gaming community "Well guys it's all in Vivendi's hands!" knowing there isn't a shot in hell for them to make this bullshit game, causing massive backlash. If Vivendi backs off, the game remains vaporware for years until the buyout is no longer a threat then is silently killed with a pillow in it's bed and everyone chalks it up to the usual Ubisoft fickleness

Oh no, I myself might have wished on the monkey's paw for Metroid Prime 4.

Do you have any idea what you've done?!
*Metroid theme is faintly heard on other side of locked front of entrance*

Next thing you guys are gonna tell me is you buried F-Zero on some old cursed Native American land in a bid to bring it back to life
