I chose other. I have a tight but small group of friends, with partners there are probably only 18 of us. I generally only party with them.

We go on short trips together. Usually to other cities to drink and eat and party. Sometimes its not all of us, especially now that some of us have kids, actually its been about two years since everyone went but every 6 months or so someone will plan something and invite everyone. We also do the country/cabin thing on occasion, but it doesn't suit us as much. In general we only do that if its for the kids.

Most recently 7 of us drank our way through Osaka. But we have also hit Vegas, San Fran, Bali, NY, Melbourne, Hawaii, Bangkok and we have Tokyo coming up in September.

Is anyone else interested in organising a meet up during the weekend of the Tokyo Game Show (12/09 to 15/09 with 14 and 15 being public days).

I know its really early but there were some really cheap airfares available so I jumped at them.

The X and the pro look pretty good most of the time.

Some of the first party Sony stuff this year has been very impressive.

That being said I still pick up a lot of multiplatform games on PC because they look substantially better. So there is still a lot of room for improvement, especially when it comes getting both performance and visuals.

I am usually into comedy anime and this year has been pretty good for that. Unlike you I was pleasantly surprised by Chio's school road. Chio does have some racier parts, but my GF, who usually has an issue with fan service really enjoyed the show. Oh and Chiaki Omigawa is just so fucking good as Manana. It wasn't my favourite show but I'm bummed out now that its finished.

It is also much funnier than Kono Suba, so I already don't trust your taste.

While I didn't like Pop Team Epic's format I did think the gags were good, I ended up watching the first part of every episode then watching the second part a fair while later.

Asobi Asobase slotted into a nice b-tier, "if ive got time" watch for me.

Watched a substantial amount of Gegege No Kitarou, Holmes of Kyoto, Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori (which I finished with my GF), Golden Kamuy, Full Metal Panic, Lupin

A place further than the universe was a great surprise and usually not something I'd watch, I binged it in an afternoon after the season ended.

My personal stand out new show was Hinamatsuri, it was probably my fave new show of the year. It was funny had good characters and kept consistent all the way through.

With Older shows I found Gintama kept being good and March Comes In Like A Lion delivered earlier in the year. While I still liked Hoozuki no Reitetsu it wasn't as good as the previous season. Osomatsu continued to slay.

The biggest disappointments are probably My Hero Academia, which I stopped watching and late night genius bakabon, which after how amazing the reimagining of Osomatsu was I was expecting to be my show of the year, while it had some funny bits in the first episode or two after the third one I gave up.

I also watched a fair amount of older stuff for the first time this year Like Yu Yu Hakusho (good but repetitive) and Full Metal Alchemist (started slow and got pretty cool by the end), Hyouka (very chill), I even started Sailor Moon, but am no where near being done.

Worst - Reliance on internet. It means there are many games not optimised/unplayable at launch without patches. It also means some games will just disappear.

Best - Instant access. As someone in a third rate territory I love than I can get almost any game now, generally at or around launch.

@giant_gamer:

Total War Warhammer is pretty amazing especially playing the large mortal empires campaign, but I think its more complex than Shogun, the factions all operate really differently and mostly have different win conditions, the characters have story missions.

I mean you could get into Total War through them, I have friends who have only played Warhammer, But I think Shogun might be a more newcomer friendly.

I like almost all the total war games.

I probably have 100s of hours in Shogun 2.

The most recent example for me is Mario Odyssey. Try as I might I just couldn’t get into that game. Playing it did absolutely nothing for me which is a bummer because it’s obviously a quality game that many people love.

This is me. I know myself well enough to know that 3d platformers are not my thing but everyone was raving about it and the Cappy stuff that I thought the gimmick may have given the game enough novelty for me to like it. Nope three hours into it I just gave up, gave it to someone as a birthday present.

I mean I hate way more stuff than that but generally I can tell a mile off if a game isn't for me these days and some how I still picked up Odyssey.
