@tobbrobb: Yeah, when I think about DmC, I think I focus more on the tone and setting rather than the combat, mostly cause I don't care about getting SSS every fight nor do I pay attention to that enough to notice, so I can see why people who come to that series because they love the combat and find it no where near as rewarding are left disappointed by it.

That's all I was really getting at. The characters and story and overall tone of DmC I don't like but I won't begrudge someone for enjoying it. There's just a lot of people who insist there's no reason anyone could dislike it besides that stuff and that "change is bad, keep it like the old ones" without ever acknowledging totally genuine criticism of the gameplay. Most of Giant Bomb staff included in that, unfortunately.

Like with alot of things, on initial release the loudest voices in the room were those with the most superficial criticisms. People who thought DmC combat was flawed were the minority compared to those who hated the game for hair color and tone changes. It is also hard to convey detailed combat critiques in 140 character which, is probably what lead most people, including GB staff, to never see them.

They have that new lego game at the show I think. It was announced last week. It is also not that unlikely that Rocksteady's game is not anywhere near release, Arkham Knight was only 2015 and city was 2011 so, 4-5 years for a new IP is not crazy. Netherrealm has been releasing a game every other spring so maybe their game is at the show but, didn't make it onto a stage... That or, Mortal Kombat 11 is releasing in Fall instead of spring.

Maybe it's because I've seen dumber versions of this chart for other games but, it seems straight forward. Silver has one expansion, Gold has two, Collectors has two expansions plus the physical bullshit.

@cerberus3dog: A lot of people understand what an incidence is and what a coincidence is, but don't get that those two words are intrinsically related. Native English speakers are taught words and sentence structure, not so much roots and meanings beyond very basic stuff. I can buy that "pirate" the noun and "pirate" the verb were two totally separate things in his head.

He then makes the connection about the root when he connects (digital) piracy with pirates Showing that it was the first time he made the connection between those two words.

I'm so over Death Stranding's cryptic bullshit. I'm not writing it off entirely yet because I still know fuck all about it, but ugh, I can't take year after year of this.

Same. I get that being cryptic is Kojima's thing but, it has been to much. They need to not show the game again until they have a gameplay demo. I also suspect that won't be for another year. With the full game releasing in spring 2020.

This is cool. I hope this means that 6 is coming to the PC soon-ish.

@mobiusfun: I don't think they are doing Metal Wolf. Their name is only there because they did the original. Another developer is doing all of the work. Also, I doubt they making Bloodborne 2

This list seems fake as Call of Duty is almost certainly at the conference.

The quiet man has to be developed by Remedy, right? Unless they already have another announced project, it has to be their game.

You probably have high hopes because the original Halloween is a good movie and this one looks very similar. I personally have no interest in seeing it because I just saw the first one last week but, I'm sure the movie will be fine. Not notably bad or good. Just fine. With a rotten tomatoes score of 70%.
