So where's the death pool for when Nintendo announces Switch Smash as being a port and doesn't say anything about the new Fire Emblem?

Anthem is probably being hastily retooled after the loot box backlash and after the game it was supposed to ape (Destiny 2) turned out to be a deeply flawed model.

What was wrong with it? I never paid any attention to destiny 2.

I think the Giant Bomb guys said that it seems like they type of game a lot of people want out of Destiny is a full-priced game that also has a monthly subscription. Or rather, that a version of Destiny 2 that had the post-launch support people wanted out of it would require that type of business model to be sustainable. And considering FFXIV seems to be the only game, let alone MMO, that is currently sustaining that business model, I imagine Bungie/Activision getting people to swallow that pill would be nigh impossible.

Well, and WoW. Maybe they can try to mooch talent off Blizzard and take another swing at titan.

Devolver's only had the one show and it was last year.

I could have sworn they did things that weren't official shows, like the time they had a trailer in the parking lot.

Between Mass Effect and Dragon Age and Fallout 4 its increasingly more difficult to play a voiced male PC rather than a voiced female PC as the female voice acting is always better when given the choice in a variable personality. No idea why that only applies to these sorts of games.

Gotta have the male PC be bland so the mostly male audience can self insert, I guess.

TLoU is one of the most overhyped games ever, along with bioshock infinite.

Throwing my TLoU hat into the ring:

If you're only interested in gameplay mechanics then it's "A Good Game" but as a narrative experience it's at least the best of its generation.

The characters aren't very likable, the gameplay absolutely destroys the narrative instead of working with it and the relationship between Joel and Ellie is extremely tired. The whole plot was pretty 'safe'.

No, but I don't find them very interesting, either, and not being likable makes it harder to care about their struggles.

Lisa the Painful is basically the same plot as The Last of Us but told in an infinitely more compelling way.

YMMV but I found Joel and Ellie's relationship compelling. And I don't know how anyone could find them unlikable. And the game's final act was about as unsafe as big budget US of A vidyagames get.

I can take or leave Ellie, whom I mostly found annoying, but Joel is probably the worst person in the game other than the pedophile cannibal dude.

Which is sort of the point?

Doesn't change my other points, though.

My biggest complaint is the dissonance between gameplay and narrative. If the gameplay and narrative don't work together, you might as well just have a movie.

there's no dissonance between tlou's gameplay and its narrative beyond the fact that joel's forearm is apparently a fully automated tungsten-alloy prosthetic that can crush a throat to bone powder in seconds

What about the fact that you kill about a billion dudes despite supposedly being about the 'last of us'? Naughty Dog isn't some tiny indie dev, it's not like they couldn't have afforded to give the game a slower pace and improved enemy AI or added elements of needing to intimidate enemies to save resources instead of just gunning down waves of dudes who charge in like they've been waiting all day for this.

It's not wrong to like it or anything, but it gets way too much praise heaped on it.
