Finding it really hard to care about Telltale after the shit show that was Walking Dead Season 2. Hope this is better though!

More Jason everywhere, forever.

Let's just strap a Go Pro to his head and livestream his whole life.

I have honestly no idea. There is no developer who I equal parts love and am irritated by like the Pokemon team.

It might just be that it's such a huge team that not all ideas get shared between teams (would certainly make sense for a remake as opposed to a full fledged title).

What's more likely (and more insidious) is that the Pokemon team knows that all of their games are really similar, so as a way of faking innovation they remove features and replace them. It makes the differences between the games much more obvious, and is less work than consistently advancing the franchise.

I know it's selfish and petty, but I hope this doesn't mean that Insomniac will become an Xbox only brand. Ratchet and Clank remains my favorite game series of all time, and I need me some Insomniac games. Just don't know if I love them enough to buy a whole other console.

Glad it's doing well for them though

Wow, they look like absolute garbage.

The prototype defense doesn't work either, because the "prototypes" were what was on fucking Amazon. Glad I didn't buy any of those.

I don't even have a Wii U, I just thought about collecting them

I am hyped for all 3, but in order I'm probably most excited for Persona, then Bloodborne and then FFXV.

It's not the future until I can order perfectly cylindrical bottles of Pepsi through pneumatic tubes connected to my table.

Also, holy shit. I saw the video and it looks like it actually works

Currently playing Middle-Earth: SoM. I only stopped playing today because my controller ran out of battery, so... guess I'm enjoying it! It's a really, really neat game and I'm having a good time with it.

Feels good to be playing a game, to be honest. I haven't been in a position financially to buy games recently (last one I bought was Watch Dogs in May, which was... ugh) so I kind of just play Hearthstone which I can't put down regardless of how garbage the meta has become. Sort of soul destroying to play a game you're getting bored of because it's just sitting right there on your desktop. So yeah, feels great to sit down, put a disk in my PS4, sit down and play a goddamn new game and have fun doing it. It's been way too long.

Thank you! I feel like this is a conversation that people are too busy to have when discussing GamerGate: why do ethics in game journalism matter? At all?

The people championing this shit act like they're uncovering some huge plot or making a big difference. It's not like EA and Kotaku are teaming up to poison the oceans or something. The worst case scenario for this stuff is someone buys a game they end up disliking based on a stranger's lie. And it's kind of "boo hoo", you know? So what?

I recently had some real problems with this guy called Ugakuga Rabble Rowser. He was this bodybuilder, shirtless guy and was just a real asshole. I killed him once with a drain or something, so he had these glowing bright blue eyes and blue veins and pale skin. Which he never shut up about. The issue was that every time I fought him, I wouldn't be careful and Ugakuga would always have something else going on, whether it was another captain walking around or a pack of Caragors. So I died about 4 times, and none of it was because of him, it was all the ancillary bullshit. So I took him basically from power level 6 to 15, and he just got tougher and tougher every time to the point where he was invulnerable to nearly everything.

But when I finally cut off that guy's head... talk about satisfying.
