I feel like a lot of these lists are so huge that it would mean you barely watch any giant bomb videos if at all...cause those are a huge time commitment too! You wouldn't have the time. I don't even know how you do it regardless. 30+ decent length games a year is insane. I don't think any of the bomb crew can claim to have beaten that much.

Oh to be a fly on the wall during one of your therapy sessions.

"I can't do anything right"

"lol"

"Why am I paying you again?"

"lol"

*sigh*

And in response to the thread, 2015 has no games that interest you? WHAT??? Right now it looks like the biggest year in recent history and E3 hasn't even happened yet.

Wait, I just read the Hailinel leaving bit. What happened? First VGK now him? Are there some secret back-channels through which they explained their departure? Cause it just seems like they left without a word. Someone being less active isn't an alarming thing, but these two cases make it seem like something drove them away.

I played MGS 3 and 4. I think three would be my favourite. Watching MG Scanlon, I'm not sure I would've been into MGS 1 and 2. They feel like games with some style, but incomplete at their core. Like they're still figuring out what they are. I guess I'm biased, but I'll say the formula came together in MGS 3. From a gameplay perspective, MGS 5 looks a lot more fun.

What's with this beach scene in Valkyria that keeps getting mentioned? I don't remember it. Is it a PC port thing?

Edit: Also I find it impressive that you've completed (or at least played most of?) more than 10 games from this year. I play so very little. I'm not sure there's been a year where I've finished 10 proper games regardless of their release date. *sigh* I keep looking at my huge backlog filled with J and strategy RPGs (I have other stuff as well, but these ones stare hauntingly at me from my "to-play" list), asking myself why oh why do all of these have to be so freaking long. Yes, it's great having a grande journey and all that, but that feeling of a big overarching plot and good character progression can be achieved in less than 30 hours. It allows the dolling out of different combat mechanics quicker and keeps things fresh. Radiant Historia was a good length for a JRPG, but most are like 15 to 30 hours longer than that.

Even in just the footage they've shown so far, there are a bunch of sound effects in Bloodborne that were used in all 3 Souls games.

Yet they somehow have failed to reuse that one memorable Tower of Latria prisoner's scream.

I am pretty pumped for this game! Will definitely be playing in japanese with subtitles though.... the voice acting is not necessarily bad, just... overwrought or something?

Too cartoony for a final fantasy that has a foot placed in a slightly more realistic aesthetic. Especially the British dude and that mechanic's attempt at a southern accent.

There is a version of this without the developer commentary over it?

No, my impressions are coming from the most recent trailer:

Looks good, but FF is dead to me after 13.

That seem totally reasonable.

The most badass part is when they just calmly walk up to the guards signalling for them to stop and and then proceed to run up to them at a dead pace and bust out their weapons. Pretty big F you.
