I keep hoping mobile Command and Conquer is a bad fever dream, but... its real, isn't it. :(

I was out during this and got the press email "EA Announces Command & Conquer: Ri" and the rest was cut off, and I was momentarily very excited. I then opened it and saw "Coming to iOS and Android" :/

Wow, that was really a 128-bit CPU? That's incredible, and so incredibly useless. There might not ever be a use for 128-bit CPUs given how the standard structure of PCs are likely to go away from the standard 0 and 1 based CPU/GPU/Ram/Motherboard setup before 128 bits are actually needed for consumer CPUs.

Small clarification: Whilst calling it 128-bit is marketing nonsense (it's not 128-bit in any meaningful sense of the word), your PC has been doing exactly the same (using 128-bit instructions) since 1999 through SSE, and we're now pushing out to 512-bit. When you're doing the same operation on a lot of data (which is exactly what the PS2 will be doing a lot of the time), wide instructions are precisely what you need (because you can put 4 32-bit numbers in there and do them all at the same time).

Can't tell if this is going to be as open as the last one. The trailer seems more like a movie than a game.

I mean, if you look at the first trailer for the last game, you could say the same thing. I wouldn't read too much into it.

if you really 100% preferred the episodic nature of the game, just play one level then stop + set reminder in calendar once every month to check out a new level.

Part of the advantage of the episodic release was that it gave the devs more time, which just playing it slowly doesn't do. They iterated on the core game, and made meaningful changes, and were building the later content on a stronger base (of course if they nail it first time that isn't necessary, but Hitman came in hot and the game benefited from it - I'd also say some of the changes you can't really make until you see how it is working for players).

Morgana in English sounds WEIRD.

I know it's not on the DLC schedule, but I hope they add the DJ Waka P3 x P5 mashup from P-Sound Bomb!!!! - it's awesome (or the P3/4/5 medley, which is perhaps even better).

Edit: missed "schedule,"

Call me crazy, but I kinda like the dumb "Dancing Moon Night" name. It didn't make sense, but there was a charm to it. Typical US releases, with their grammar and proper marketing.

I was about to say the same. I don't know what it says about me, but I kinda liked the broken name (and "Dancing in Moonlight/Starlight" isn't that great of a name anyway).

Edit: Vita games in 2019 (in English) - that's a weird thing.

Playing through the pre-order bonus stuff, I got perhaps the best line for GB: 47, you need to stop Lang.

Games that are 100% not Dan: Steins;Gate (even if I think he would ultimately enjoy parts of it, it would be a STEEP hill to climb).

And I've said it before and I'll say it again - if he gave it a shot, I could see Dan getting into Persona. Something about the way he talks about Stardew Valley just reminds me of Persona.

@dweep: I think that was more about how he does not like that so many video game sites have become sites that talk about all manner of entertainment media now rather than just video games.

Like wrestling and anime? :p

I suspect that he dislikes it when they are chasing the money and diluting their core focus, rather than it just being something _extra_ they do.

Jeff is right about that Switch thing being weird. I stumbled on it a few weeks ago while looking through the Japanese eShop, and it's like this softcore, choose-your-own-adventure photobook. It is the _last_ thing you expect to see on a Nintendo platform.

There's not only DLC (1000yen on top of the base 500yen price), but there is a different "game" per girl (three so far, but I have to imagine more are coming).
