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

Gonna say that Jeff Grubb did a good job pronouncing the Swedish name Sjögren, as the "sj" sound is a quite uncommon sound only found in a handful of languages.

How Jess feels about Sam Barlow is how I feel about Naughty Dog.

and how I feel about Mass Effect. It was so baffling to me how people were lifting those games up as some pinnacle of story telling and "the best Star Trek game" when to me it kinda just felt like a porn parody of Babylon 5 but without even delivering on the action front.

Given that Jess likes 90s horror games, maybe the gothic horror themed JRPG Koudelka for the PS1 could be something? It spawned the Shadow Hearts series that's apparently making some kind of return, probably in pachinko form just like Silent hill.

God, was there really nobody there who knew that olives don't grow with the slice of red pepper inside? Because that's what pimento is. A slice of red pepper inserted after the pit has been removed.

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.
