I haven't had the chance to play a Tell Tale adventure game with a friend/girlfriend yet. I would not want to replay it myself because I already have an established LiS canon; I cannot change it. But, I can watch someone else, and either guide or see their natural playthrough.
I think I can interpret what Eurogamer is trying to say, but the sentence, "Firaxis has been on Overwatch all along" sounds way worse than they meant to make it sound. That implies they've been sitting on their asses waiting for aliens, which in this political cartoon is us the consumer, to make a move before taking a reaction shot, penalty included.
This is such an expected part of the celebrity life/death cycle that I do not find it surprising or even disturbing. I mean, if you want to be super literal about it, the entire art community is built around "scalpers" selling the works of long-dead artists and painters at a premium because demand is high and supply is low.
Glad to see it didn't die in the Wii wasteland. Maybe it's a stretch, but Sega released Valkyria Chronicles on the PC months before announcing its sequel. Something tells me B&B's return wasn't accidental, that they still have a future.
I think not mentioning the price could be a positive influence. If you think it's too expensive off the bat based on certain assumptions you have about the game itself, that might put you off every trying it. If you watch them play and explore for an hour that might soften your opinion on how much it could justifiably cost.
