2020 is almost over and I think the only 2020 release I played was the C&C remaster.

Tsai Ming Liang could probably do a good video game movie! Most of his movies have silent protagonists already!

I refuse to believe there was any E3s past 1997, if there was, surely Coming Soon Magazine would have covered them.

Jeff said what I was thinking regarding Epic/Bandcamp. The best outcome of this purchase would be if Epic just scrapped their entire Epic Storefront and replaced it with Bandcamp's. Bandcamp does not have a perfect storefront either of course, but it's vastly superior to most, and that could turn Epic into a useful DRM free competitor to GOG instead of a Uplay-ish mess.

Damn, I've been trying to tell people about the Wizardry (Wizardry II primarily) to Souls lineage for like 13 years now, good to finally see people starting to get it.

Them discovering just how big Russia is reminds me of the Negativland "Time Zones" theme. 11! Time Zones.

YES!! I was so close to just quoting that song in chat when they realized it. Such a wonderful, underappreciated band.

She refers to the movie as a mistake, points out how it was a big weird flop.

It's just hard to buy in to her proposition when both the audience and her seem to know that it is completely unlikely, even if Nintendo did some weird stuff with their IP 30 years ago.

She also did point out that the Virtual Boy was a similar disaster but keeps getting referenced in Nintendo products though.

Anyway, I would love something as simple as a nod to "trust the fungus" or the thwomp stompers.

They don't actually have to acknowledge that Mario's real name is Mario Mario even though we all know it actually is.

I had no idea what those skate figurines were until you busted out the foot guy. Then a wave of nostalgia came rushing over me. Crazy!

haha, yeah, the name didn't ring a bell at all, and I couldn't recognize any of the others he showed, but the damn foot one ...

@janman the wrong zool game is linked in "In this episode", should be Zool Redimensioned (and the "Tag this video" feature hasn't worked since the weeks after it was introduced, so I can't correct it myself).

- Click "manage my DLC" on the game's Steam page.

- A list of all DLC opens with a checkbox next to each.

How could this be handled better? I'm not a Steam fanboy, I'm just baffled by the complaint because the current implementation seems as good as I can imagine it being.

In my experience Steam has always installed all DLC automatically (like I want it to), but I don't know if that's always the case for everybody.

A "minimal install" to save space with lower-res textures and such would be a nice option on a portable device.

That hasn't been the experience for me, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, The Master Chief Collection, the old Age Empires 2 HD (not the recent Enhanced Edition) and Train Simulator did not install all the content by default, forcing me to go to that Manage my DLC screen in order to do that, but also that screen installs each DLC directly when you click the checkmark (with severe load times for each click), instead of - as the checkmarks imply by standard Windows behavior (or as Steam handles it at the purchase confirmation screen) - letting you pick all the items you want do download and then apply/queue them. I think it's a needlessly slow and clumsy process, which they have already handled better in other parts of the UI. I'd like it to be handled similar to the screen you get when you complete a purchase, where you get the list of items with a confirmation button.
