i wish theyd dub double zeta. thats the only one im missing for the "amuro vs char" thing (and chars not even in it so...). but given some of the things ive heard about it, its probly best that they dont dub it

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:02 PM)

and im on vacation next week so ill have lots of time to watch all this lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:01 PM)

@zaku ive got war in the pocket on standard dvd already. amazon didnt have it on blu ray. bonus points to it for having character designs by haruhiku mikimoto. and this collecction is only "new" in as much as its new to me on blu ray. ive had burnt dvd copies of it all for years

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 09:44 PM)

Yeah, 00 was pretty good, and I recently watched Build Divers, and found it really fun. Got both limited editions of IBO... still need to watch them...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:30 PM)

00 is also pretty good, basically a refined version of the Wing concept, and IBO is great.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:29 PM)

I'll be the requisite "Build Fighters is actually pretty good" chime in

@  MEDdMI : (24 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

G Gundam was the best. Horse mecha! Piloted by.... a HORSE!

@  ZakuConvoy : (24 April 2019 - 07:31 PM)

I'd probably recommend tracking down 0080 War in the Pocket to go along with your new collection, but you might have enough to watch for right now.

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:53 PM)

G Gundam will likely always rank first for me, as it is the one I find the most fun, but 8th MS was great for being the most "realistic" of the UC stuff.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:17 PM)

the only other gundam series ive watched-which was also the FIRST gundam series i watched-is wing (and ill probly get that on blu ray soon too). i know i havent watched everything tied to it, but the UC is quite enough for me lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:14 PM)

i think 8th team is my favorite, but cant say why. maybe it has something to do with them not being newtypes. i dont particularly like that concept

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:11 PM)

8th M Team, 0083, and Zeta are my favorites of the original timeline. Have yet to watch Origin, but it is loooow on my list, as I never particularly liked Char. Quattro Bajeena was actually kinda cool, though.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 05:49 PM)

so i just did something insane. i bought gundam origin, first gundam, 08th ms team, operation stardust, zeta gundam AND chars counterattack on bluray...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Hollywood stereotypes, eh? Don't get me started on how sheerly unrealistic that can be, and how badly Hollywood loves to stick to them.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:44 PM)

Also, fun fact: To me, Dutch is the language that sounds harsh compared to German.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:37 PM)

Generally, nobody shouts at each other in Germany unless they're either a) morons or b) doing it for comedic effect.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:36 PM)

... based on an outdated way of speaking (I mean, does anyone in the US still speak like Joe Friday?)... which might also have been at least partially a regional thing.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Generally, many native English speakers' primary conception of the German language and its perceived harshness comes from Hollywood movies... created by non-native German speakers, with non-native German actors giving their impression of what they think the German language sounds like...

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:33 PM)

I might be severely biased, but as a native German speaker, I think the perception of the "harsh German language" is at least in part due to a myth created by Hollywood.

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

So E3 has come and all the big press conferences are done. So now we have the annual thread where we get to vote on which company impressed us the most! Although you can easily say that we the gamers are the winners of E3, as we have all this gaming goodness coming to us, this thread isn't about that. We are just asking who had the best showing this year. So cast your vote! Who won E3 2018!

I give it to MS this year, good pacing, good games, some pretty cool surprises. 


Sony and Nintendo both had awful pacing.


Ubisoft was good but unspectacular, same with Bethesda (I'm not going to get excited for a pair of logos that are probably 2-3+ years out at least)


PC show I only perused but seemed solid, but I'm not really huge into PC gaming at the moment.


EA was EA.

Nintendo won with Ridley and having more FFVII than Sony, Microsoft and Square Enixs Conferences combined.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Nintendo had interesting games out this year. Sony had a lot of news I was waiting for and quite a few games that piqued my interest, but probably could have been paced better. Bethesda and Ubisoft were decent. Square Enix had some interesting stuff but totally dropped the ball on even a mention of FF VII, which after how many years and they haven't told us a whole hell of a lot? They need to get on that! Microsoft had only one first-party game out this year. Everything else was either next year or third-party non-exclusives. I just can't let them get by with that.

So I'm going to have to go with Nintendo.

At this point, it's safe to say FFVII is never coming, and the entire promise was a hollow lie to move units.


FFVII has become the new Duke Nukem Forever.

Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

I was swinging towards MS, but Silverclaw nailed it. Nintendo with them showing more stuff coming up in the now and near future does feel better than everything nearly being three quarters or more out that could be delayed again and again. Having some good surprise drops like they did made up for a somewhat lacking in Metroid Prime 4 showing.

Sony May have some fine looking games but damn what was that with the music?! And really little exclusive announcements of anything that we didn’t already know about.

Ubisoft did good and their collaborations with Nintendo is cool. But I’ve never been big into their franchises.

EA..... well they used Battlefront 2 as a learning experience, but other than Anthem looking cool, was EA.

Bethesda has a good slate of things to look forward to but not anything really for me.

FFVII has become the new Duke Nukem Forever.



I think it's coming, but expect more after KH3 is out and Nomura's done with that project. I mean, I spectacularly do not care about FF7 so it's not a big deal for me.


Anyway I enjoyed Nintendo's the most but Microsoft definitely showed off the coolest new PS4 games.


All in all, a pretty quiet E3. Good for my wallet.

I went with Bethesda.


All the new games that are coming out this year:


Rage 2,  Prey Mooncrash, Fallout 76, and a New Mobile, PC, VR, Console Cross play Elder Scrolls game! Rage 2 looks like a great solid FPS game that wasn't on my radar until I saw it at the conference. The Mooncrash dlc sounds like a really fun game mode to play, so much that I want to get the game just for it! Fallout 76 is my game of the show. An awesome Fallout game that I can play co-op with my brother sounds like an epic game to me! I will upgrade my PC to play this game! I like the ambitious idea of the Mobile cross play Elder scrolls game. I want to see how well that works, especially for a F2P game.



and Next year:


Doom Eternal looks like a excellent sequel to a great FPS game! I can't wait to see more this fall. Wolfenstein Youngblood, a Co-op FPS game based in the 80s of this alt world, sign me up!



And the games for the year after that:


New IP called Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6!



They had a lot of Anti Nazi stuff, great humor at Walmart leaking their big game, and some wonderful self-deprecating humor about them porting Skyrim to everything. Plus they had my Game of the show, Fallout 76! They just had a great E3 showing this year, while the Big Three kind of faltered.


Microsoft showed off a ton of multi-platform games while pushing all of their exclusives to next year releases, possibly for the Xbox Scarlett. 


Sony had weird music throughout their conference, but only showed us 8 or so games, that while neat, weren't that great. Although I do want to get that Resident Evil 2 remake. 


Nintendo really didn't bring anything this year so they spent twenty minutes talking about Smash Bros Ultimate and a new Mario Party to get friends upset at friends.


Ubisoft had a few good things, Starlink with Starfox, AC being a straight up brawler set in Ancient Greece, the Division 2 looking like they learned a lot from the first one, but another game to get next year.


EA spent way too much time on sports, but Unravel 2 being released the day of the conference was awesome and Anthem looks great to me so far. Definitely want to check that out next year too. 


Square Enix didn't bring much to the table but at least we got some more Dragon Quest 11 details! I would have loved to get some info on Dragon Quest Builders 2 or the FF7 remake.



So my order for this year's E3 Conference showings:








Square Enix

The Call of Cthulhu trailer gives me hope for Cyinide Studio getting it right:

Personally I don't care about CoC, but given their next project is a Paraoia RPG based video game, I'm glad they seem to get the tone right.

IMHO, Nintendo won this hands down.  Even though some games were a no show (like Metroid Prime 4 and Yoshi), they did reveal some new games that got my interest, like Super Mario Party (which I am liking since it seems to be returning to the gameplay of Mario Party games we know and love) and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (come on, every character returning, plus Inkling, Ridley, and even Daisy?  This could be the Smash to end all Smashes).

I have to disagree. Bethesdia was good.. but again the same problem with a lot of others. It's "When?" 


The nice thing about Bethesda is they gave you the full gamet.  Stuff that was out now, stuff that was out later this year, stuff that's out next year or later, and stuff that's super far down the pipe but they know we know what they are so they're just going to announce them now.


Overall, Microsoft had a very good conference, but it was a lot of "third party stuff now, first party stuff coming soon"  Announcing the addition of 5 new studios is a huge step in the right direction for them, but it likely won't be until next generation until that pays off which is a shame, as their conference was otherwise easily the best of the big three.


Ubisoft, aside from a detour down the Tom Clancy "political intrigue game that 'isn't political'" rabbit hole, was a very fun conference.  It's a shame their big surprise leaked, and their other leak was a no show.  (Not their fault, but a bummer none the less)


Sony had some PHENOMENAL looking games, and a handful of interesting third party trialers, but their inexplicable choices for how they presented that stuff really detracted from what they were showing.  Also, their first party announcements for the past couple years have been kinda thin.  I guess that new console is coming in hot.


PC Gaming show put in some work this year.  I always only pay half attention to it, but they were pretty much showing indie game after indie game, so props to them.  (Also props to the host who basically had all of his belonging in his hotel thrown out / confiscated when they mistakenly though he had checked out.  You wouldn't notice in the slightest that all of his notes for the conference had been thrown out.)


Nintendo: Too focused on Smash.  The lack of big first party announcements was jarring, especially when they teased MP4 last year.  Handful of decent third party stuff, but man, if you're not into Smash, that direct was pretty barren.


Square-Enix was a waste of time really.  The handful of actual announcements probably would have been fine on their own or on one of the big two's stages.  Also would have saved us from sitting through a super-redundant Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer repeat.


EA was a total trashfire.  If it weren't for a brief bright spot with those EA originals, it would have been a complete write-off.  From the awkward Respawn announcement to the awkward sports stuff to the sad parading of the corpse of Command and Conquer to the bizarre way they decided to show off Anthem (they showed concept art on a loop! during that segment!  They couldn't even get enough concept art to fill time?)  Just a bad, bad conference.


Special Try-Hard Award for Devolver Digital for thinking the same joke was funny twice.  Just show Serious Sam 4 you hams!
