Telltale Games is probably going out of business.

Edit: They laid everyone off except for 25 people.

That really sucks as they were one of the few developers to still make Adventure Games/Visual Novels.

Speaking of which, the original Ace Attorney Trilogy has been announced as being released in HD for PS4, Switch, 360, and Steam early next year.  So if you've never played them before or just want to play them on the big screen, now is the chance to do it.

Holy shit on that Ace Attorney news. Day one for me.
You should probably put your bandit hat on now.

XSEED is releasing PS4 versions of Trails of Cold Steel 1 & 2 next year, giving hope that they will also be bringing over 3 & 4.

Wore an Atari shirt and NES controller hat to my friend's gig last night. The owner of the venue, I know casually, chatted me up while the band was tearing down. He's HUGE into late 70s - 80s video gaming and he's also HUGE into the arcade scene. He occasionally sets an Atari 2600 up in the bar (he also has a vintage TV collection in the bar) but the drunks always wind up not respecting the system/games and it becomes a cluster so he's very selective on when he sets up games.

He wants to slowly evolve into a Bar-cade that also has bands. He was considering one of those DIY MAME cabinets with 4500 files. I suggested, and am asking y'all to either support or shoot down my argument, that he shouldn't do that. Having drunks try to figure out what they want to play out of 4500 files is counterintuitive and will cause more problems than entertainment. I suggested he figure out 4-5 games that HE would want in his business that would have a broad appeal to bar people. I suggested the Mortal Kombats, Simpsons, Ninja Turtles, multi player type stuff and maybe one sturdy pinball machine. He also already has a tech guy lined up for when stuff breaks.

He seemed to be giving my thoughts fair consideration. He was also drunk out of his mind (he kept saying he was hungover so he was drinking to get rid of it) and had to pay the band so we had to shake and go our separate ways. Really awesome dude, I want to see him succeed and realize his dreams.

This is the same venue a year ago I had to help him eject a drunk that licked the bartender, owner's wife, then went piss all over the bathroom and himself. The only reason they didn't eject him after licking the bartender is he was spending a shit ton of money and buying rounds for the band and she rather deal with sexual harassment to lost profits  :o (He had leaned in to tell her his drink order and instead licked her).  So yeah, anytime I walk in she gets excited and starts immediately pouring me an Old Fashioned and the owner "MY MAN!!!" (if only they knew, had that drunk pulled a weapon they'd have two puddles of piss to clean)

I hate myself again. Sunset Overdrive came out on PC this week. I liked it on the Xbox, so I bought it. Forza Horizon 4 went on sale and I bought it. After playing Forza for a bit, it gave me a message that my video memory was running low. I have an old 1060 GTX that I used for the last four years. So I thought, maybe I should upgrade because it's old and there might be deals now. NewEgg sends me an email and says they have 1060 GTX on sale for $265 + comes with Monster Hunter code. I went on Amazon and it turns out it's actually a good deal, so I bought it.

I installed the 1070 GTX and my Forza graphics and framerate increased dramatically. WWE 2K18 plays smoothly when I have more than four wrestlers in the ring. So far so good.

I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A because it was $150 on Black Friday.  This thing's battery is a fucking beast.  I also had no idea that you could pair an Xbox controller with it for games.  I barely use my XBone anymore so it's nice that I can still get use from the controller.

Nearly 10 hours of uptime doing pretty much everything (browsing, work, games) and the battery is at 50%.  That's fucking impressive to me.

I wish they would just release those games for the current home consoles/PC. I already have the Street Fighter/Mega Man/Beat Em Up collections. I don't want to spend more money to clutter my house.
