So basically a re-skinned Rollercoaster Tycoon, then?

Jeff remains one of, if not THE, only personality I can watch play videogames solo with any consistency.

I can't put my finger on exactly WHY, other than the fact that he never sounds like he's trying to have a conversation with no one, but it's more like a lecture from an interesting professor of videogame history.

Sounds like? I cannot wait for the day Jeff is unironically awarded an honorary degree for his services to video games.

Faithful HD remake of RRT4 please, Namco. Preferred it to Gran Turismo 2. It was the racing game on consoles in the late 90s.

Welp, my nostalgia can't resist this. I just... have... to.

I loved Brad's I-know-Jeff-too-well, 'I bet he's going to play it some more.'

This year's lineup looks great. Definitely 1-upped 2017. Really psyched for West's 24hr stream!

@brad Apologies if I missed it: is there a 'hardcore' mode a la RDR1? It looks a little too easy to eschew strategy in favour of a run 'n' gun approach to combat.

so 3 Quick Looks? Careful or this will start to look like ClickBait Video filler. "5 things you didn't know about RDR2", "Horse poop in RDR2 explained", "2 things you should know before jumping out of windows in RDR2"

Giant Bomb offers an excellent selection of guides and helpful walkthrough for 2011's much-touted Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim here, here, and here, a gameplay video and another of the Switch port, a statue unboxing and even a video review!

Year after year, I feel like EA just doesn't care but there are no other options.

Same as Madden. It's been this way for aeons.

I read the first paragraph and then... the review ended. What's the point? Especially from a guy who has zero journalistic credentials--I might just as well read the video games section shoehorned into the anaemic tech section of my local newspaper.

Providing complimentary audio is about as useful as those 'how to do [x]' videos on YouTube, which spend ten minutes getting to the point of something that could've been written down and consumed in a tenth of the time.

i.e. Would I rather spend five minutes reading a well-crafted review, or an hour watching the staff ramble on about the game's features? The former every time. More informal debate already has a venue: the Bombcast. The site is evidently comfortable being 100% shits and giggles now, and that's fine, but it's progressively less and less what I'm looking for without the journalistic integrity to back it up.
