Pretty sure Ben went Super Saiyan at one point during this episode.
My nostalgia is dead now... RIP FFXIII.
OTOH, I've recently been watching a series on YouTube called FFVII Machinabridged and it is downright high-larious. Really makes me want to go back and play that game again, something I haven't done in well over a decade.
@hiczok: Pretty sure they even introduced her as Mrs. Ryckert at the beginning of the podcast...
I remember enjoying the game at the time, but that was a LONG time ago. I also haven't touched the game in ages, so I'm certain I'm looking back on it with rose-tinted glasses.
To this day, my favourite part of X-2 remains the 1000 Words concert scene, and I think I'll stick to never playing the game again in the hopes of preserving some semblance of positive memories about the game. However, I will continue to occasionally go back and watch the above concert scene on YouTube, and just soak myself in how good it is, and never apologize for it.
X-2 may very well be a bad game and a simple cash grab, but in some way I'm still happy it exists just so we have that song.
I honestly don't remember a whole lot about this game except the 1000 Words concert scene, and I have always really liked, or even loved, that scene. I still have the Japanese version on my phone after this many years, and it still garners emotion out of me every time I hear it.
I came into this thread ready to defend that scene to the death, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that you enjoyed it.
Yeah, let's hunt some monsters!
Dan's argument about why PUBG is his GOTY even though Zelda might be his favorite game of all time makes zero fucking sense and will infuriate me up to and including when he tries to explain it on the GOTY Podcasts
He can argue all he wants, but Jeff already said at PAX that PUBG can't quality for GOTY because its still in early access and not a fully released game. Though he said he might change that rule for 2018.
You're misquoting him a bit - he said they would have to cross that bridge if it does not get released officially prior to end of 2017. It's still supposed to at this point.
For a guy who says this stuff doesn't matter, Jeff does get oddly pedantic about his own made-up rules sometimes.
I don't understand why they can't just agree among themselves right now that clearly the "early access" distinction no longer matters and they will consider anything for the 2017 awards. I'm not sure what the "rule in place at the start of the year" distinction really makes.
Also I totally understand the intent of Dan's argument i just think he failed to explain what he really meant. I haven't played any of his top games so i have no dog in the fight.
He said on the PAX panel that he didn't want to change the rules this year just because an Early Access game that they liked finally arrived, but it's the catalyst for a possible change going forward on how this thing is judged. However, it wouldn't stop PUBG from being considered for other non-GOTY categories.
He also stated that this could all be moot since the game is supposed to get a full release this year and that "anything goes" on their individual GOTY lists, but I'm pretty sure he was adamant about holding true to no Early Access games on the site GOTY list.
Now I face out, I hold out
I reach out to the truth of my life
Seeking to seize on the whole moment, yeah!
Another trailer with the whole co-op banter, though at least this one was more restrained.
It looks interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing more. I just hope it pans out better than the last few BioWare games that came out.
Use your keyboard!
