Understanding that Ranking of Fighters is by definition silly and not meant to be taken too seriously is part of the bit.

Hey ! Respect science...

Seriously now... sure. But only if unlocking everything is easily attainable, and leads to a lot more options/shenanigans. If it is only extra costumes or an extra character, who cares?

A podcast/video based feature where Alex, Rorie and any other member of the giantbomb talk about movies and other topics. Given the current situation, they can talk about streaming premiere instead of cinema... doesn't really matter. No need to refer to it related to screened (rip), but I really liked that podcast and miss their opinions on recent movies.

A coop WRPG where each control a different party member sounds like a great idea as well...

I put it about 50%.

I consume all the audio podcasts, although I am running late on the aftermath ones, and several of the video streams.

@facelessvixen: I wouldn't either. It is an impressive technology, and given the way Epic monetizes it, a great learning tool. I just think its not a good source of information for an unreleased peace of hardware.

@topgunmv: Yeah, the video is 9 years old, but the engine version is 15 years old at this point. And while we eventually got there, it took 5 years. I think games well into the next generation have potential to look close to that during gameplay (and, again, in pretty controlled spaces), but that ain't going to happen until 2026, at least.

As others have pointed out, engine tech demos are software companies putting a lot of makeup in a very controlled environment to look at their best and are, in no way, indications of real games with real gameplay being played by real people.

Sure, it looks nice, but I would bet no game will look like that expect in very scripted sequences for the next 5 years. Consider that this was the Unreal demo, 15 years ago:

I really enjoyed the Resistance 2 co-op mode. Sad that it didn't returned on 3.

I don't know. I guess it depends of how it is handled, and I understand that people might be upset about mayor characters deaths, but to say this is a turn of events, unexpected or doesn't go with the tone of the franchise didn't pay attention...

That being said, the payment allegations are not cool, one person sabotaging the work of the entire team because of it is not cool either. The whole discussion about gender politics getting into the game is just the same old bullshit.

Sorry if I was a little cryptic.

I am trying to add shows to my watchlist, but the page is not updated when I add them, and some appear some time later, while others never do. I have tried signing out and in, removing the flag and setting it again, to no avail.

For example, this is my current watchlist:

However, those are not the only videos I have tagged. I am not sure if that is something about those series in particular or a more general issue, since some are added without problem.

Hi,

I am trying to add video lists to the watchlist, but it doesn't get updated to more than 3 or 4 lists...

I am on Windows 10, Chrome 81.0.
