I'd like to take this thread to thank Weird Al for teaching me many, many years ago that Padme was 14 in The Phantom Menace.

"Ahhhh do you see him hitting on the Queen, though he's just 9 and she's 14"

The Saga Begins is such a great song. Better than the prequels, anyway. (Revenge of the Sith is legit good though)

@humanity: Oh shit is that whats is going on? Been playing Immortals recently and controller would randomly turn off for a few seconds...thought it was that game. Thanks for the heads up.

I can not wait for this to drop tomorrow. I am very in love with the story and world that modern Hitman 1 and 2 have set up, and I can't wait to see conclude.

Man, this departure hits me the hardest out of any we've had. Being the same age, and also being a giant (though not as giant as Ben) he was super relatable and I loved everything he did. I'm so sad he is leaving, but very happy he is leaving to follow the path he feels best about. I can't imagine what kind of pressure a public, forward facing job like the ones the staff here has can do to your mind and emotional state.

My wife framed the pictures from our PAX 2018 adventure and one of my favorite ones is the one that Ben graciously took with me. One of the few humans that has ever towered over my 6'6" ass. That pictures is a treasure and I'm happy I could meet Ben, even if briefly.

Safe travels Mr. Pack

I was playing WoW when the clocks turned over so....WoW.

Not the first year this was the case. Probably not the last year, either.

Huh...looking over that list, there is little I'm interested in that isn't some fancy remake of an older thing, save for like Hitman 3. I would have voted God of War but I highly, highly don't expect that to ship next year.

I am legit excited to see how they wrap up the Hitman story though, loved the narrative in the new Hitman 1 and 2

This is going around but hey, in the odd chance someone who would be effected sees this here first then it's worth linking. Be VERY careful with this game if you or anyone you know is epileptic.

So many games have live service aspects now, but I'll note down ones that I feel fine saying I "completed" even if they had some ongoing thing:

Ori and the Will of the Wisps: probably my GOTY, such a beautiful game. Tears were shed...lots.
Nioh 2: More Nioh, and that's great! Got the Platinum in a week. Never used new "demon mode"
Marvel's Avengers: Fantastic story of Kamala Khan, horrible live service. So much potential, very disappointing
Ghosts of Tsushima: A really good Assassin's Creed game, and not much more.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Great game, though the lesser of the 3 "nu AC" games. Wraps up the trilogy in batshit crazy ways, can't wait for DLC/next Game

Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Watched the wife play through this. Weird game. Parts were very bloated for little reason, good VA and great music. Enjoyed that it twisted things from original FF7. Looking forward to part 2 in 2027

@eroq: I think it's a result of the influencer/twitch culture and how the marketing machine has adapted to weaponizing these people to be the company mouthpiece. You'd always have people that would go to bat hard for X game for no real reason, and do so aggressively, but I think now that it's so easy to have a platform and be "noticed" by companies, that spills into the audience of said person and we see these extremes we've noticed the past few years.

I also think score reviews don't serve any purpose anymore outside fanning these flames, and I'm thankful for places like Giant Bomb for giving more nuanced takes and not slapping a score to everything. Today's Jeff + Jeff Chat was perfect for letting me know what I needed to know about this game, and helped me decide on when I should pick it up.

One of the first things I put on my Series X was Hexic HD and I have zero regrets.

Still one of the best "pack in" games ever. I still remain horrible at it to this day.
