Chilly Willy was in the 90's Woody Woodpecker cartoon. I seem to remember him having a separate miniature segment of his own in the middle of the show, and he didn't interact with Woody directly.

I really enjoyed the first two acts of Gears 5, but felt like the second half of the game was lacking. Act 3 totally forgot about all of the interesting Kait & Locust Queen story stuff that happened in the previous acts and didn't replace it with anything too interesting (the Fahz/Paduck storyline could have been interesting but it didn't dive into that stuff in enough detail). Then the final act had some great explosive action that you want from the final part of a game, but seemed to be all over far too quickly.

Overall I enjoyed it, but it felt very lopsided to me.

I've been going through a really hard time the past few weeks, and I got this when Brad showed it off on UPF a week ago. It has been a really therapeutic experience and it has helped me out tons.

I have yet to experience any trolling or negativity like you usually expect on these kinds of anonymous messaging things. It's an absolutely wonderful "game".

Thanks Brad.

Jabba does absolutely appear in The Phantom Menace. He is present for the podrace. He starts the race off and then falls asleep before the end.

I think people get mad that Epic is more or less buying the exclusivity. Developers/publishers arent deciding to go 1 year exclusive with Epic simply due to the revenue split. Epic is dropping a fat stack of cash on them to come to the platform.

This is the main argument I see from people, and I don't see why that is a bad thing. Epic are basically funding game development. They're saying "Here, have this money to support your studio and allow you to fund future development". In a space as competitive as the video game industry (especially the indie space), that's a huge deal. If a game comes out and the sales are significantly lower than expected, that is usually enough to tank a studio and everyone involved loses their job. And with so many games coming out, it is incredibly hard for games to stand out of the crowd and be a success. Especially when the Steam storefront, the dominant store on PC by far, is a total clusterfuck that makes it impossible to find anything unless you already know what you're looking for. Being a success often has very little to do with the quality of the game, but a lottery of whether you get noticed or not.

Epic has made a shitton of money from Fortnite and they're using a small portion of that to fund developers, and that's great. I know they're not doing it out of the good of their hearts and they're building up an audience for their store, but I don't think their motivations really matter. They are still funding developers and allowing them to continue to produce their art regardless of commercial success, and I think that is an incredibly positive thing.

I was just thinking "This looks like it would be a great phone game" and then I checked and it is on phones. Perfect.

"The only list I couldn't include was Dave's."

Dave did say at the end of his list that his GOTY was Heavy Burger, narrowly beating Madden. You could maybe have included that as his #1 and #2 choices.
