Was no joke on my short list. I think it'd make a good middle name.

There has to be a movement of people naming kids after gamertags, right? I think it's nuts that eSports is full of people with super edgy names, like they can't just be called Mike, but they're embracing their online identities. And the easy pickings, like Sephiroth (which is a game name yeah but also many people's gamertag) are taken, but what about more random assortments or letters, or words with vowels removed. What I'm getting at is: How far away is our society from the first baby WeedBoner?

I like that Kirby was named after the Lawyer that won the Universal lawsuit for Nintendo and was picked because they could think of no one that fit being an adorable little puffball less. If course now the name just seems fitting and perfect, like it could never have been anything else.

Where's a good place to start with the Delicious! series?

There's nothing wrong with just going to the most recent game, but if you care about plot and story and seeing the general evolution of the series, the first game that started to pin down the formula would have been Delicious! Emily's Taste of Fame, which is like the 3rd or 4th game in the series. Keep in mind that Miracle of Life is the 15th game so I personally would not blame you for just skipping to it

I played I think the first five missions of Shadow Tactics on PS4 yesterday and I love it. Runs smoothly/plays pretty well on a controller

i think it might break my dumb idiot brain if there are missions with all five characters though

Excellent. Commandos 2 is still the number one game I would like to make a screenshot LP for, but my test runs involve so much loading and reloading to get multiple cameras pointed at the right thing to convey the right action that it took me hours to get through the tutorial missions. Later missions, with a spy in a disguise chatting up a soldier, a sniper up a pole with a scope over a target on the other side of the map, a scout racing across a rooftop in between patrols and a dog barking at a Nazi would be bonkers to orchestrate.

e: I see how this could be confusing. Commandos 2 and 3 let you split the screen up so you could be looking at different areas at the same time. I don't think a lot of other games did this and you could play the whole game without bothering with it, but it let you keep eyes on multiple areas or characters at the same time and it was pretty cool.

it looks like Saints Row: Singleplayer E-sports Edition. I don't trust the devs to make a satisfying shooter, they should outsource the development out to people who make better 3rd person shooters

I'll probably wind up getting agents of maybe cause I'd like to believe that volition still knows how to make a fun game, though I'm keeping my expectations pretty low given what's been shown. Definitely getting kiwami day one though.

The five most recent games are on steam, and you can get them in a pack. In order, that;s

1) Emily's New Beginning
2) Emily's Home Sweet Home
3) Emily's Hopes and Fears
4) Emily's Message in a Bottle
5) Emily's Christmas Carol

Hopes and Fears is my favorite, and then Message in a Bottle. I like it when the stories get very ridiculous in scope, but part of the fun of that is watching build to that.

Yeah, tepid might've been too strong a word but in general Saint's Row is a series that isn't nearly as popular as the people that love it think it is. Not saying it was a flop but if you're a game studio, you'd also want your game to do better and it makes sense to maybe try a new IP. AoM looks bad though
