Yakuza Kiwami: Yep... still awesome

Tesla vs Lovecraft: Nice little good one of that genre. Good for mindless fun.

Katamari Damacy Reroll: lala, lalalalalalalaaa... Katamari Damacy!! I get that song stuck in my head, but I am not complaining.

I wouldn't put it pass them to rebrand a lot of Battleborn/Borderlands characters into a F2P Battle Royale game to get into that Apex bandwagon...

And, of course, they will announce that Borderlands 3 is "still a thing... we are working on it... soon, we promise". With any luck, we are going to get a mini-teaser with the B3 logo in it.

@rigas: I know it is not hard, but I still think the Capcom/Disney Afternoon games of the NES era are some of the best suited for that feature... with one caveat though, only Chip and Dale have co-op. :(

Considering my only experience with the game was the alpha, and I hated the flight controls in that, Bioware and EA will have to pull quite a stunt to make me interested in that franchise. From what I have seen in recent years, I don't think they have it in them.

Transformers Bumblebee.

Its pretty good. Not mind-blowing, but coming from one of the worst blockbuster franchises in recent times, it certainly feels like a step in the right direction. I hope we get a sequel without involving hack tool Bay in the middle, because that movie had more heart that all the previous ones crammed together.

@sweep: The Martian is a really good suggestion. I recall Vinny also loved that book, so it should be easier to recommend it.

My personal favorite is the Discworld series, but I don't know if Dan would enjoy that brand of fantasy.

If he has even a some passing interest in science fiction, Foundation and I, Robot are great starting points.

I am all for new ME in the spirit of the originals, but I don't know if the game justifies a next generation remake. Outside of polishing the graphics and changing the combat in 1, I don't know how much work they can do. The style of gameplay hasn't fallen out of favor so much to invite a new interpretation...

We are not talking about a Resident Evil 2 from-the-ground-up style of remake, more like a Last of Us add-some-polish-to-already-modern-games here..

Sure they will... considering the success of this remake, a remake on the same style of the other "tank based" games in the series is almost guaranteed to be profitable, even when none of them hold the same classic status as 2.
