This game looked pretty cool when I visited my friend's house and played it on his sega mega. Like, look at how big the sprites are. This is much more detailed than Mario. Suddenly turning into a wolfman was super cool.

But yeah now it more brings to mind those fancy-ass super short bad launch games every console gets.

Lmao all that shade thrown at Mr. Do

CyberConnect 2 make some amazing cutscenes. I dunno about their gameplay but I trust them to make a real good version of the DBZ story in game form. Like I'd sooner play those Ninja Storm games than watch more of the anime.

The Life is Strange choice is some real bullcrap. Like yeah it's a real dilemma, but it's incredibly contrived how we got here. Somehow using your time travel magic conjures snow, two moons, whales stranding and a giant typhoon? Just the must bullshit literal interpretation of "butterfly effect"? And the way to solve it isn't to make any different choices with different effects, it's to do the emotional thing and shoot your best friend slash possible crush? What kinda superpower comes with the caveat that if you use it to save people, storms happen? Not even any other people. You save the life of the suicidal Christian chick just fine. It's just her. Like what the hell man.

Choices in games fall flat for me most of the time 'cause they're so obviously false. Is it heart-wrenching to decide to kill someone in Mass Effect 1? Not really, 'cause the same story plays out anyway. Is it tense to choose who lives and dies in the Walking Dead when the other person has to die a couple scenes later anyway? The nature of resources means they can't make a game where you have to entirely separate routes. That makes it hard to care on anything other than a principal/customization level - "I wanna be nice, I like this person better so she gets to live longer".

For me, my favorite choices in games are visual novel routes, 'cause since that's just text you actually get entirely different stories with those same characters. I also like the way you can kill or not in Undertale. There's obviously only one moral way to play it, which gives you way more content and story, but having the option to always murder someone the Dan Ryckert way means my pacifist route feels inherently more meaningful.

Nier Automata's true ending choice was also impactful, 'cause I still feel bad

OG Dragonball is quite pervy. It’s just another reason I think they’d much prefer DB Super after the end of this run.

The biggest reason being that their two favorite characters, Vegeta and Mr. Satan are actually in it.

The only time OG Dragon Ball is more pervy is in the first 10 or so episodes. Nothing else after even comes close. Them skipping the best part of the story would be a crying shame. Going straight to Super is a huge mistake. Especially since Super isn't even that good.

My dude, there's an episode of DB where Roshi shrinks himself so he can watch Bulma do bathrooms. It is episode 48. Take off the rose-colored goggles.

Remember that time there's an invisible man Yamcha can't beat, so Goku flies off to get Bulma and Roshi, aims Roshi's nose towards the ring, pulls down Bulma's top and then Roshi's nosebleed makes the invisible man visible? That's a while after that even.

I didn't know Star Gladiator existed until they put a June costume for Chun-Li in Street Fighter V.

We had a map on the wii, man. Even the DS game had a map.

After what, five of these games, I think it's a pretty big bummer that they haven't changed them up more. Like compare the progression here to the mainline series. Galaxy 1 and 2, 3d land and world, and then odyssey? Things have changed fairly significantly, with a lot of unique style to it. And then there's these games doing the same thing since 2006.

An addendum: I got to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for 3-4 hours at the New Year's party I was at. Gotta say, it might be the best game I _have_ played in 2018 now. I really enjoyed playing King K.Rool in particular. And I'm impressed at how effective it was to give everyone a part of the controller to play on. They're tiny, but it's actually better to play Smash on those than playing on a Wiimote for Brawl, 'cause you've got enough buttons in basically the right places.

I also forgot to mention the games I played during Christmas and added that section. I also played Hidden my game by mom 2, but I don't have much to say about it. The hidden my game by mom series is funny and sweet and I forget it exists when I'm not playing the games themselves.

When the list leaked ahead of time, I had a real good laugh. How can anyone be mad about Tetris Effect taking it? I think it's very funny in the final discussion how, after arguing about games for hours, you all come together at this one game I totally would not have expected. It's not my game of the year by any stretch, but I'm glad you got to chill out with what you loved lmao. Happy new year, and thanks for all the great content this holiday season!

Most Disappointed was the Minerva's Den vs Lair of the Shadow Broker/Dream Daddy vs Yakuza of this year, but this time I knew to skip an hour ahead.
