Play this in French. There is an option, you can even change it on the fly. It's a French game, so it makes a lot more sense than English with accents, and the voice acting is plenty solid in the French version, too. They even resynched the basic facial animation the game has.

I just... I gotta say it.

It's not "mano y mano", guys. That means "hand and hand", which is to say it means nothing.

It's "mano A mano", pronounced "mah-no ah mah-no", meaning hand to hand.

Americans and English speakers in general get a lot of things wrong when they try to use loose Spanish words, but for some reason this one sounds like scratching a chalkboard to me.

Not sure I get the point of pointing a camera at the screen. It's not like I can tell how good it looks or how well it's running.

The Digital Foundry guys got a modded Switch they use for direct capture of Switch handheld, which is great, but the camera-to-screen capture doesn't quite cut it, IMO.

Also, yeah, they put Dragon's Dogma on the Switch. I'll probably buy it again and not play it, as I did the past few times.

@mordja: Yep. And even vanilla out of the box you can get the Origin version running at 1080p with minor .ini tweaking. The Alt-tab issue is real, though, and the game can be finicky in general about modern video displays, so setting up a bunch of capture out of it may add... complications.

@ripelivejam: We can not be dicks even when Vinny is not around. I know it seems hard, because outside Vinny's radius of happiness --AKA the Vinnyshine--, things feel a bit dour, but it's possible. I suggest we all get together and try.

Like, right now. Just to prove we can.

Because ew.

TANTO-R is the original Wario Ware. So... yeah.

Also, what the hell is going on with this comments section? Between the Epic and Bioware stuff this whole place is a bummer.

@lofi: Huh. That explains a lot.

For what it's worth, where I'm from you get one year of national history and one year of world history, alternating all the way through middle and high school. It's astounding to me that you can get to be a grownup opting out of hearing what happened in the... well, the world at all.

I still think we have too much focus on memorization and fact checking, but I did have a few good teachers who would just tell you the story of what happened, which totally expands how you view learning history. Turns out it's all like now just with different costumes.

@veektarius: Yeah, that was the idea.

I mean, I'm not saying "ignore the fact that somebody did an unofficial remake of Theme Hospital that is very close in design and tech to this thing", but Two Point is a (pretty decent) upscaled carbon copy of Theme Hospital. If you take that basic design and apply it to a different skin then you're part of a larger genre, like your Startopias and Dungeon Keepers.

The one obvious thing I see in this video that is decidedly Two Point is that setup to buy plot extensions halfway through, which I don't think most of the previous games in the genre did. Whether more of the tech is a direct lift or not is a bit of a pointless argument because this entire subgenre is so mechanically consistent.

Whew, that was... a way more verbose path to making the exact same point again.

How can something be "like Two Point Hospital"? It's just... the concept is baffling.

@zinkn: I know, right? They may have sold me a copy of this based on these Swedish people finally making a game set in Sweden. I hate how devs worldwide feel like they need to set everything in the US all the time. Maybe I'll reward that regardless of the jank.
