I agree that Dark and Darker needs a mention. It's such a weird situation that they have to try to drum up sympathy by publishing the game themselves, with pretty much exactly the trappings that people hate Nexon for. It's a whole thing among the Tarkov-esque streamers.
I agree that Unity is bad, real bad. I also think we're dealing with recent bias, however. A company putting its foot in its mouth happens yearly. The Overwatch stuff (as one group) is worse imo, as it's just an endless string of colossal fuck-ups; especially since it's a game that's had an infinite amount of time to rectify itself.
My thoughts: I think it sucks balls that the first F-Zero in decades is tied to Nintendo's worthless paying online system :) I'm not paying for a service I won't use to fiddle with the reanimated corpse of a once beloved franchise. I have the SNES cartridge, I can fire that up any time.
Luckily, the release schedule is so packed that I'll forget about its existence completely by next week. So will everyone else.
That was a wonderful Direct. Just so much cool stuff for any person to enjoy. Personal favorites are Palia, Silent Hope and Penny's Big Breakaway.
My only note is that I would've liked just a smidge more info about the Princess Peach game, because it looks like they're toning it down, rather than the sheer chaos of the DS game. I hope it stays weird, but in a better way.
Grubb is gonna have a bad weekend by looking at this topic title.
On the topic: It's absolutely fucking nuts that a PS4/XONE still costs as much as it does this late into its life. I've waited for them to be a reasonably priced pickup, unless I want one of those shitty One S things, which I don't. I'm still waiting.
