Metal Slug Tactics is the game I didn't know I wanted. Looks pretty slick.

Discworld is incredible, really the only reasons to not love Discworld is simply because someone hasn't read it, or they have contrarianism disease and only by rejecting that which owns can they express their inner turmoil.

Especially because there's so much variety. Maybe you don't like Rincewind? Try the witches! Try the guards! Try DEATH!

Were any of the Discworld TV adaptations any good? There seemed to be a billion of them and they all had that Dr Who style UK TV fantasy on a budget kind of vibe.

I don't care much for the Color of Magic adaptation, Rincewind is way too old. Its not awful though.

Hogfather is pretty darn good, solid cast.

that British tv feel isn't because of the budget, it's because the British media industry is down to like the same 5 producer/writers

Agree on both. Hogfather is fantastic, the people they got for Susan and Teatime are amazing

Unfortunately not and I kind of think such a thing can't/won't happen. Honestly only reason I'd really want good show adaptations is just because it might lure more folks to the books. Doing Ankh-Morpork up right probably needs Game of Thrones money but to get that money the product will necessarily be altered for producers perceived ideas on how to make show most profitable.

Still, like, Good Omens was good! Granted Gaiman is alive and present, but something adapted from something Pratchett's authored is possible!

edit: looks like i should check out hogfather

Like I'm not trying to disparage anybody for liking discworld, like I said in an earlier post we all like things at certain times in our lives that speak to us for who we are at the time. If I had read discworld as a kid I'd probably have fond memories of it too, but I didnt. I read the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy and at 12 years old it was the most hilarious thing in the world. I have fond memories of it. Though if I were to read it again today it would probably be pretty disappointing

If it gets too hard just summon friends for jolly cooperation

That said, the only thing in 3 I think is really "too hard" is the nameless king, and he's entirely optional.

The leaked info was "dark souls open world" so yeah, dark souls with horses is exactly what I expected and I'm happy with it.

Looks like Soulsborne with a little shadow of the colossus or breath of the wild and that sounds
