Am I weird for loving the way Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection looks?

Points to the devs for trying something, but when you make a game that trades very specifically on nostalgia, you should probably be fairly conservative with your choices.

I was a massive flight sim nerd in my teens. Back then, MSFS would have been the thing I spent hundreds of hours on. Cut to now and I dedicated a total of perhaps an hour to the game before moving on. Life changes and interests change, but I'm very happy MS revived that venerable franchise. And it makes for some great youtube content.

Thanks, Rami. Very thoughtful list.

@bbackguitar: Oh, sure. I'd even happily take a remaster of Kotor 1 & 2, but that would be so much work it probably doesn't make sense.

Those thinking this game may be a bit overhyped aren't really wrong, but they're also missing context a bit. Remember this came out between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith when original Star Wars fans were pretty damn annoyed with the direction of the franchise. Lots of people latched on to Kotor as the best thing to happen in Star Wars fiction since the original trilogy.

Certainly a debatable opinion if you were into the extended universe at the time, but I'd agree that it's better than anything George Lucas was doing.

I really hope this becomes a full series, and hopefully you guys do a sequel series with Kotor2. With the restored content modded back in, I think that may be my favorite game.

Oh, yeah, I hope so. At this point playing Kotor 2 on PC without TSLRCM doesn't make much sense.

Imagine being an adult and not knowing what a Kestrel is.

Yes. Everyone knows he's a dead Austrian musician.

RIP Der Kommissar.

With Vinny on this one. Love salty crunchy snacks, don't much care about candy.

Of course all those carbs get converted to sugars in your body anyway, so...

the receiver-market seems to be dying. the mainstream just uses the tv + maybe a soundbar. we are a dying breed. =(

AV receivers will be around for a long while for those who want them. They'll probably get more expensive as they increasingly move into the "enthusiast" category, though.

A receiver is still essential to my setup. Like Brad, I have a bunch of older devices hooked up and need things like component and optical audio.
