I prefer wrasslers to hasslers.

Edit: Weird that the launch of the Epic store doesn't seem to prioritize the consumers first. It's almost like its business model isn't predicated on the consumer experience and giving consumers choices.

Secret of Mana remake was ugly as it was made off an engine made for mobile where they remade Seiken Densetsu 1. Trials of Mana remake though looks AWESOME! Watched some gameplay on the Treehouse stream and I was really impressed. So impressed I'll forgo the collection and wait for remake next year. Honestly, more into this remake than FF7 Remake, maybe because it's a complete game.

I tried an IHOP pancake burger over the weekend, the pancake didn't really help the taste, it made it dry, but it sounded dumb enough that I had to try it once.

I can't find your mats on store.giantbomb.com. I'll ask Rorie if they're backordered. Worst case scenario, I buy a mug.

You know what game I'd like to see them do a series with now? Secret of Mana. It's now easier than ever to get a three player game going on the Switch.

What if they did a three player co-op playthrough of Secret of Mana? It would be so awesome.

Do you not see how catastrophically irresponsible it is to encourage people to drive drunk/high/fucked up? And then also pick up their phone to call you?

Did they just forget Bloodstained came out today? I waited all day for a quick look and alas, I've played the game myself and ...

It looks so bad when you watch other people play it, like it just looks floaty as heck or something is wrong with the combat - but playing it? What a different sensation! I've never had a game be so different than watching it.

Play bloodstained!

If all this Age of Empires resurrection takes off, I hope we can get some refreshed Age of Mythology. I played that game so much as a kid.

Bethesda: "I'm making you a tomato and cheese sandwich."

Consumers: "But you usually make Italian grinders!"

Bethesda: "Here's your tomato and cheese sandwhich."

Consumers: "Where's the meat? This isn't a grinder!"

Bethesda: "Uh...I guess I can add some meat to it."

Tl,dr: Bethesda should charge for Wastelanders DLC to Fallout 76, since it ruins their original vision and is out of the scope of the promise of that game anyway.

@gazoinks: It kind of already took off, because AoE2 HD sold extremely well on Steam. So it wouldn't surprise me if we see definitive editions of Age of Mythology and Rise of Nations. That would be fantastic.

I think the main problem with Pokemon games is the same problem with Sonic games. They introduce mechanics in one game then instantly get rid of therm for the next game. They should try to refine features instead of ditching them.
After fans complained Nintendo announced they are adding online multiplayer with friends to Mario Maker 2 in a patch, hopefully the complaints about the new Pokemon games will result in a patch too.

I'm okay with a reduced-Pokemon roster since I'm in it for single-player only for the most part, but I get some of the complaints.

GameFreak has been using the same models since X/Y, and the models of old Pokemon we've seen in Sword/Shield so far seem to look the same, so it's not like they're crafting enhanced models for this generation.

Another reason they gave was to allow time for "better animations" or something of the sort. But....in the E3 gameplay, the Pokemon still just bounce or jerk slightly, and the opponent jerks in reaction. This is how it's been since Gen 1 - you just have to fill in the battle animations with your imagination. They don't appear to be crafting detailed Pokemon / Battle animations.

I was real skeptical about FF7 Remake but it actually looks great to me so far. I'm bracing myself for a lot of highly inaccurate "this was never in the original" comments when it drops but my anticipation has shot through the roof for it since the e3 footage.

My junk smells like bad crab on a hot day. I was gonna wash it in the sink or something but NOT ANYMORE! Thanks Crop Preserver and thanks Giantbomb!

I feel like Brad was so close with his, "What's everybody's favorite moment of the show..." Pop quiz hotshot, Keanu Reeves was the moment of E3.

Imagine falling asleep after starting this podcast and then waking up to the experience of Jeff selling you a ball shaver. I don’t have to because that’s what happened to me.

That poop game looks awful. Only people with immense levels of immaturity would find that game entertaining. Thank god the staff at GiantBomb aren't those kind of people.

@transit4080: I'm still stunned that didn't leak or Keanu didn't just casually mention in an interview "Yeah, I'm doing some cyberpunk video game. It's cool." It was a welcome legitimate surprise in a time where nothing is surprising anymore.

Thing that bothers me about epic store complaints is, for me, steam sucked for a long time. It didn't just materialize perfect, took awhile until it was something I actually looked for. Now I love it, mostly. I think the epic store will get there eventually, and comparing modern day steam to it seems silly to me.

I love Jeff reading the weed description, because it's the same with the pot stores here- Flowery, upscale descriptions about 'tastes of' and 'hints of' that everyone skips over to get to the THC content.

That Claptrap quest is definitely not a dig at the original Claptrap VA, y'all are reading way to much into it. Him quitting to get into cryptocurrency stuff is in 100% character, and if it was a dig at him Lilith would've said much more than just a 'k' when he left then rejoined the Crimson Lance. Claptrap is an idiot, that quest was poking fun at cryptocurrencies in general and people that go all in on them to an exaggerated degree.

Do the guys not know Danny Baranowsky's name or do they just refer to him by his Twitter name now?

Surprised at the hatred Brad has for Remote Play since I've had nothing but great experiences with it on Vita and PC. The early Xbox One attempts at it were really bad for me since it rarely worked.

Best line of the show:

I had Gamepass prepaid until August 2020 due to card sales and Bing Rewards. When I got the $1 Ultimate upgrade I wasn’t told my next bill was August 13th 2020 because I already had Gamepass, so even though I didn’t have Gold I got the whole package for the on file length of my contract.
