And so begins the One Thousand Year Reich of Waluigi.

Posted by kineticflow

I thought Year of Luigi got extended to 2014.

Posted by RitzkriegRap

It's totally the Year of Luigi still. The ride never ends, motherfucker.

Luigi is dead! Long live Luigi!

Edited by BooDoug187

My predictions for 2014:

  • Hard core porn games on PS4 and XBone.
  • Nintendo gives up on WiiU
  • Phil Fish gets a weggie from some high school jocks and stuffed in a locker, making Fish really delay Fez 2
  • Games will start being released on High quality 8-track tapes
  • Cluster's Revenge 2: Princess Loving Moan's Revenge
  • Sega kills Sonic in Yakuza 6
  • Smash Bros on Wii U will have fatalities and DLC characters will be most of the MK line up, a character from Rape/Lay, and one of the bosses from Dark Souls

Could have done some light audio editing on this. Even just a little compression.

That Mario Kart prediction is cheating.

No more disc sales? Please

The real prediction: Moba and free to play over saturation, the big publishers will have to go after another silly trend instead.

Man, that Capcom one bummed me out...God damn.

MOBA's I could see, they've been way too formulaic for several years already, I still think there's room for some new ideas in free to play design though, and they're still trying new ideas out, as long as that happens I think the free to play games could continue to grow in numbers.

I predict a year of not much changing at all and the PS4 and Xbox 180 working hard to make themselves seem worthwhile but they won't get there until 2015.

I also predict @jeff will drop all his old man grumpiness and nostalgia and embrace new games completely. So much even, that he might sell off many of his old games and consoles.

That CAH/Giant Bomb fusion idea sounds amazing though. I hope to see more great collaborations between the two now that we have a representative out in Chicago.

Counting on you, @patrickklepek! (Also, work on your evil laughter.)

So your prediction is that there will be new trends? How very bold of you!

The dude that predicted Valve's impatient on the Occulus team sounded almost identical to Gabe Newell which I found incredibly funny. Maybe it was intentional and the joke just flew over my head, I don't know! :P

Posted by Scroll

@mrcaptain: Emphasis being on the over saturation of Moba's/f2p model but whatever, punch holes in the other bit if you like.

I love that the prediction that a big name developer will release a game on Steam Early Access has already come true with Ubisoft soon-to-be putting Ghost Recon Online there for... reasons.

Posted by Fattony12000

Urgh, why didn't you ask me this P-Dawg? I have the best predictions.

I predict that a skype mailbox would have let everyone contribute not just North America....:\

That ending!

My favorite thing lately is when people accuse women of being white knights, or when they accuse people like Patrick or Kevin Van Ord of "just wanting women to fuck them".....which is funny on several levels.

That Jeff duder was probably right about WH40k games, and it makes me sad. Have tentative hopes for Eternal Crusade, though -- but that's 2015.

Posted by Shaanyboi

lol jesus, that last one... I did call in, but I wanted to make some additions.

EA will make aggressive moves to try and get back into the good graces of audiences. Most of these will fail.

The next Call of Duty will continue a downward trend, despite an initially positive reveal.

Steambox will not take off to a degree that it can really be considered a success, and may even put some manufacturers into a bad place, financially.

Nintendo will greenlight games and make collaborations that they never would've previously made during the Wii era all in an attempt to save WiiU. Regardless of quantity or quality, people will continue to say there are no games for the system.

Sony bundles the PS4 with Vita.

Titanfall will cause some outrage at its lack of single player

Watch_Dogs will disappoint financially and critically when people realize it's kind of just another boring open world game with the ability to flip acouple of dumb switches.

Last Guardian will be seen again but not release this year.

I think it's funny, that people have taken to calling others white knights, as an attempt to hurt or discredit them. Since when did white knight get a negative connotation?

White Knight Chronicles however, now there's a slur for ya!

Yo, that's a We Butter the Bread With Butter album cover!

No handhelds...obviously someone doesn't live in a country with a heavy population of people riding on trains.

2014 - Early, Early Access.

Posted by GasparNolasco

@movieflask: You pay a fee to watch the developers code.

Posted by Humanity

Pretty good until that whiteknight in the end!

Posted by GasparNolasco

@arawk: Or even children, actually. Since handhelds are a cheaper and easier choice during christmas or birthdays thightspots.

Holy SHIT will I get hype if Brad rolls counter strike.

The guy talking about linux gaming sounded like Gabe Newell...weird.

Edited by firecracker22

I guess White Knight only winds up looking bad because of the other Knight.

The Dark Knight.

Yeah, I also agree and it too makes me sad. I wasn't too into Space Hulk.

Edited by GasparNolasco

I predict 2014 will be the year women stop bitching about the game industry and start really doing something about it... Like buying and playing videogames.

Seriously, just present yourself like a valid marketeable demographic. Bitching doesn't reach the big wig publishers, money does.

Bravo at the end. Hahaha.

Buy access to the game design doc (hosted on google docs) before a single line of code has been written. If you pay $100 you get to edit 1 page*.

Oh, the Question of the Week is back in podcast form. Neat.

Posted by melting_window

My prediction:

All commercially sold FPS games will have to be made without guns thanks to the Obama anti-gun laws. Only the underground scene will support the sequel to Call of Duty and Battlefield.

Posted by Fram

This was really cool, thanks for putting this together. Ending was great!!

My prediction is that by the end of 2014, traditional MOBAs will be dead (except for the big two) and their properties subsumed into the DNA of other games. Kinda like the proliferation of RPG mechanics in EVERYTHING, and more recently Rouge-ish elements like procedural generation and perma-death.

*gasp* Have you no good decency, man!
