Not really, I feel like it's harder to find the exact things I want to consume. On top of that, so much space is devoted to each item, especially the latest video. It just requires a ton of navigation/scrolling to see the same amount of stuff it used to. Maybe I'll get used to it, but I'm gonna be watching as much on YouTube/QLCrew as possible.

I'm adoring it, but it's a Pokémon tailor-made for me. I wouldn't refer to myself (or anyone for that matter) as a "genwunner", but Gen 1 was definitely the peak of my fandom. I still loved Gen 2 a lot and have had fun with each game I've tried, but it's never been the same for me. Kanto and the original 151 are what I fell in love with and it's hard to recapture that feeling. On top of that, from day one, Eevee was by far my favorite Pokémon. He's so damn cute and I loved his ability to evolved into an ever-growing number of evolutions, he represents the best of Pokémon as a whole. So a game that brings it all back to Kanto, all back to the 151, and lets me run around with an Eevee on my head is literally everything I want in a Pokémon game.

From a mechanics standpoint, I'm on the fence. I love the elimination of random battles, because battling is my least favorite thing about the series. I love not having to grind battles but instead grind captures. The only place that falters is in the actual capturing. I don't really know what I would do differently, but because throwing at the right time, at the right target, with the right conditions is the name of the game - I can't shake the feeling that any failed capture is 100% my fault rather than RNG or a bit of both. I really don't understand why I can't play with two joycons as well. I get that they want me to engage with the motion controls, and that's fine, I just wish I would navigate with the Left and throw with the Right. I throw right-handed in real life, but the stick on the right joycon is in the middle of the joycon, so it isn't as comfy to play with.

But all things told, I'm enchanted by it. It's everything I hoped it would be, and everything I've wanted since FireRed/LeafGreen. Bring on Snap 2!

I was enchanted with this game after the trailer at last year's E3, and everything I've seen since then has only made me pine for it further. It's an Action RPG/Platformer and it looks like Muramasa: The Demon Blade in visuals and combat mechanics, but with some interesting traversal and adorable harvesting mini-games. I adore the look of this game, it looks like it takes place in that collectively cultural, idealic, magical version of Japan that we'd all love to be real.

I really think people are sleeping on this one, it's hard to find discussion about it anywhere. It's coming out at the end of the year and I really hope this will turn some of you on to it :)

It's been ten long years and this is going to be the last DMC game of its kind. I'm getting excited. Worst case scenario, it sucks and I still have the old ones to play. Best case scenario, I'm gonna get the best one yet.

Get excited, dude! Devil May Cry 5!

Based on everything Sucker Punch has said this week, it's as much a ninja game as a samurai game. It'll have skill trees for both, and you'll be able to play either way you want.

Honestly, the same thing I've wanted and received every generation. More powerful hardware to make games look better, run better, play better, or make possible games that were not possible before. I'm not looking for a revolution.

I'm not into it at all, it seems like a game tailor-made for griefers.

Did they seriously kill the initial pacing of this just so The Last of Us Part II could have its own room?
