Wow I've played more than 500h of Battlegrounds this year and even I think that there are better games. Don't encourage developers to push broken games! This makes GB part of the problem. At times the game has been unplayable and 1.0 has made it less stable (with a higher frame rate though) and the old/new map ratio is off. Sure there are plenty of things that are enjoyable in Battlegrounds which could get it up to number two, but rewarding a game that is plagued by bugs, haunted by cheaters and problems that are beyond repair (hit detection on client side/unencrypted net traffic) simply seems unethical.

A pope for every person! However, the catholic church is already trying, right now we have two popes which hasn't happened in a long ass time.

Honestly, how is there NOT a really pretentious indie game about the College of Cardinals picking a new pope?

Hmm the feature is cool but the gamecube video quality is weirdly off. Google let me know that RGB Scart only worked on the PAL cubes (natively) but you had those luxury YUV cables in the US, right?

This is a really poor showcase of the game unfortunately. Ben had mostly played the multiplayer it seems and this can make the game super confusing. The single player missions each give you a progression of how the game works really thoroughly. They do a really good job of scaffolding too.

For example, in the mission against the "Jukebox" it outlines that it's about Erase skills. The Jukebox has only Erase and Defense Skills. You're supposed to time your Defense skills to block its Erase skills, then wait for your Partner to use his Erase skills to get rid of its Defense skills so then you can hit it with your Attacks. This is not me guessing, it's explicitly stated at the beginning of the mission by your Partner. All you have to do is read. All of the scenario missions progress like that from the very basics of what everything in your UI is etc. For example, right before this is a mission that makes your work on timing using your Defense skills, and how they operate against some Skills and not others.

I chalk this up mostly to it being really hard to play a game and talk about it at the same time but if you're remotely interested in the game, give it a shot. It's not nearly as opaque as it appears in the QL. I've never played this game until this release and with the 2 hours I have a single player I feel like I have a good grasp of what's going on in the game. I feel I'm not just pressing Skills to see what they do like what Ben had to do here.

Well explained. And to say that the story is serviceable is a strong understatement and with his 2 hours into the game he's played about 10% of the single player campaign. The reveals throughout the story are truly amazing. Plus it seems unfair to fault the game for having different skills which you have to read to be able to use them effectively.
That said, I didn't know that this was coming, so I am happy that they made a quicklook.

@vinny, are you using a VGA box (plus a scaler maybe) for the Dreamcast? The picture does seem a bit blurry.

I forget, is the ps4 region locked?

I actually bought Persona 4 Arena on my US account, not knowing that it is the only PS3 game with a region lock. So in the end it didn't run on my EU PS3. -_-

Hey Buddy, thank you for your review.

Do you mean that Mount Your Friends is a "masterpiece" on Xbox 360 but not so much on PC? And if so is that because of the suttery online multiplayer or does the XBox version have more features? I might consider buying it once more there, if that's the case.
