Youth N Asia

(Thinking of a new title for this space)
That game was a struggle to finish. It wasn't much more than a Telltale game. Not a ton of actual gameplay. At least as I remember it. Ambitious. But a major letdown.

Shadows of War looks so, so pretty but all of articles and tweets I'm seeing about how the microtransaction system fucks with the games enjoyability is really making me reconsider. Argh.

Yeah, I'll probably get it eventually but in no rush, can wait for a good price drop, besides the new South Park game comes out next week and that's what I'm waiting for.

I think I was probably thinking of when it was delayed from 2016 to 2017 (which was not even the last delay) and thi king it was 2017 to 2018.

I preordered my copy so I could get the free PS4 COPY of Stick of Truth and Towlie.

When I picked up WWE 2k18 this morning, I was told at my local Gamestop I could pick up South Park as of 9pm Monday

Gotta love Best Buy Gamers Club, got $20 in certificates from pre-ordering the new South Park and Battlefront, used those along with another $10 I had from points to pre-order Super Mario Odyssey bringing the price down to $19.25 and will also give me another $10 certificate.

Well, fuck. They are going to lose a lot of people's support.

An EA representative walks into a subreddit...
https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsBattlefront/comments/7cff0b/seriously_i_paid_80_to_have_vader_locked/dppum98/?context=5

and gets the most downvotes in history.

They've already reversed course and said they'll cut the credit costs of all the heroes substantially.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 announced for PS4, Xbox360 and Switch.

Didn't think that Sega would give us another game, nor going everywhere, nor being fully pastel colored. Should be a lot of fun.

It seems like from the trailer that there will be physical editions for the consoles. I'm getting the PC version so it will be download only. I wouldn't mind a Collectors Edition though.

I feel the same. When I played 9 though there was not nearly as much hype around it so it was an awesome surprise to find how good it was.

This is great news. My friend and I used to play SF Alpha 3 on my PS2 all night in high school. Now we can battle it out online.
