So glad it's back and happy to see business Dave again. I miss his appearances on UPF.
@shinofkod: Referring to Mukuro as one of Sensui's lackies was an oof moment.
In his defense though he did say it's been a while and he didn't really seem to dig the series as much post Dark Tournament so makes sense he would tune out a bit. I'd consider Naruto one of my favorite series but my memory becomes very hazy around the War Arc and Kaguya, etc. because it just wasn't as fun to read anymore.
I think the Dark Tournament is a bit overrated and Chapter Black/Three Kings are vastly underrated. Three Kings especially I didn't care for when I watched it originally as a kid because I wanted the characters to go out in a bombastic DBZ style over the top way with the universe at stake. Re-watching it recently now that I'm older I really appreciate how it gave each character a sense of closure and peace, allowing them to find happiness in their own ways and not be stuck as the perpetual heroes waiting for the next big bad to arrive.
@benpack You should go back and watch The Three Kings arc from YYH to refresh your memory. It's relatively short and I liked it much better on a second viewing.
@betamax I was waiting for Alex to reference this the entire time. I nominate Dan as the new Simpsons editor.

Jaded old Jeff, having to put down poor MatPat. That's just how enthusiastic he is!
And I'll take energy over pessimism and negativity any day.
Agreed, it weirds me out when the GB crew dunk on streamers when that's exactly what GB has become now. I've never heard of MatPat before this but he seemed totally fine and can you blame him for being excited to have the opportunity to speak at a keynote like this? Honestly GBW could use some energy, Rorie/Business Dave bring the heat but overall it's been lacking since Dan moved.
@chummy8: You can play through it solo for sure. The Incursions (raids) from the last game had matchmaking so I'd assume this one will as well if you wanna give that a shot after clearing the campaign and all the story missions have matchmaking. There's lots of endgame activities you can do by yourself too it'll just take you a bit longer to gear up.
4 people and no one took a healing skill haha I'm really liking the Hive ability so far, works similar to the support station in the first game.
I know some people miss it but I'm glad to see snowy New York gone. Hundreds of hours of grey snowy areas and subways gets to be a bummer, seeing actual colors is so nice and the buildings seem much more interactive with all kinds of caches to find and areas to explore.
I had a good time playing the trial version but $50 is way too much. I could see myself getting this when it hits the $20 range.
Have to disagree with Brad re: Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I'm about half way through and loving it where as I absolutely hated Rise. The lame Trinity stuff is still there but they smartly focus more on Lara and her struggles/relationships which is much more in line with the stellar first game of the reboot.
It's still way too samey with a lot of pointless scenes of Lara getting beat to hell, unnecessarily grisly death scenes for traps and boring upgrade trees but the story at least isn't actively terrible so it's a bit easier to overlook.
"Outside of The Power Bombcast's return, a Persona 5 Endurance Run"
This man gets it, since I've gotten somewhat into wrestling again over the last year and started watching NXT I miss the Power Bombcast more than ever.
Great list Dave!
