Genuinely stoked to see an article written on Giant Bomb in 2015 that isn't GOTY related.
I've been waiting for Galak-Z to come out since I played it at PAX East last year. It's going to be my new Spelunky I think.
Splatoon was the first game for Wii-U that got me actually considering the system. Now that Bayo 2/Mario Kart/Smash Bros./Mario 3D World are out, 2015 might be the year for a Wii-U for me.
I have really high hopes for Just Cause 3, 2 was a masterpiece. I mean the awful story and characters were awful, but it played into the vibrant over the top nature of the environment too. It was like watching a diamond in the rough action movie from the late 80's/early 90's. The action was amazing and the writing was horrid.
Mercenaries 1 was awesome. I'm glad someone still remembers it.
edit: More specifically, a Jeff Gerstmann article. You're a good writer Jeff, I want to read more!
I was there with a fellow GB friend! I got to go two years ago and have been wanting to ever since. So happy I could this year.
We played a ton of Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo and Ms. Pacman. He was new to pinball so I showed him around the various well regarded tables and happily he started to get into it!
Did you try that indie game with the huge 50(?) inch screen cabinet? I wish I had thought to check the forums here to see if anyone else was there, would have been cool to grab a drink at the bar. We spent a fair amount of time there as well...
@yummylee: Not sure what this gauge is for. I love the Crank movies but I also enjoyed the hell out of Shoot 'Em Up in the theatres. Nothing beats Crank 2 in terms of intensity of dumb and crazy for me I think. I'd say it's probably more Crank then..probably...and Fast & Furious.
Also I just remembered this when a white dude fighting Ice Cube gets hung by a chain and he says "Ain't that ironic." GOD DAMN I LOST IT
