Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

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, but this thread isn't about that. We are just asking who had the best showing this year. So cast your vote! Who won E3 2019!

Bethesda and Square had...adequate presentations.  Bethesda lost out on focusing too much on existing stuff and on background stuff.  The Doom presentation was pretty solid.  Square was better in light of the quantity and quality of content showed.  Both were pretty run of the mill and wouldn't have been anything special short of how BAD everyone else's was.

 

EA and Ubisoft were pitiful, with most of their time focused on existing franchises or "more stuff to buy in games you already bought".

 

XBOX did little with their new console, and while they made some decent announcements and reveals...very little was exclusive.

 

Most game announcements from the "big players" were for games that come out next year.

 

 

Nintendo?  Games and more games, and more importantly, games you'll be playing THIS YEAR.  Unlike the other guys, who focused on the usual big franchises and genres, Nintendo rolled out a wider range of games with everything from horror to platforming (2D AND 3D), RPGs of all flavors, action and adventure.  And continued support for major titles like Smash.  Probably the biggest omission from Nintendo's presentations have been core franchises from the big players like EA.

Nintendo handily won this E3 by doing the one thing everyone wants to see: games, games that we'll actually play reasonably soon, and a focus on ensuring their platform holders have a variety of content to play this year.

And they revealed a number of new titles that are intriguing or from partners who didn't reveal at their own conferences.

 

So yeah, Nintendo pretty much won E3.

For me, Nintendo won easily in all respects but one. Even though Sony skipped the show entirely, their Days of Play sale finally got me to go ahead and buy a PS4, along with a bunch of games for cheap. So as of next weekend, I'll... have a whole new pile of games on my backlog.  :doh

 

So far, I've picked up God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, FF15, Arkham Knight, and Uncharted 1-4. I'll get KH3 eventually, but probably going to wait until it's on sale. Anyone have any other recommendations? I love action-adventure games and RPGs. Generally can't stand shooters.

Nier Automata if you not already own it

 

For me it was Nintendo on top followed by surprisingly Bethesda

 

Nintendo dropped tons of games in our lap you can play right now and showed off whats to come and oh boy is it a dozy

I also voted for Nintendo.  Once again, it was a no contest in their favor, especially with amazing announcements like Banjo-Kazooie coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and even new games like New Super Lucky's Tale and Chronicles of Mana (which would bring Seiken Densetsu 3 to American shores for the first time).

Is new Super Lucky's Tale a new game or is it just a port of the Xbox One game from last year?

I have to go with Nintendo. They really want me to buy a Switch this year. Smash getting the Dragon Quest Heroes from 3,4,8, and 11 makes me ecstatic! Link's Awakening, It is a must buy for me. I loved that game on the Gameboy! I am torn on whether or not I will be buying DQ11 on the Switch or not. I like it on the PS4, but I might wait for a sale on it before picking up this version.

Nier Automata if you not already own it

 

I've seen the name before, but had never really looked into it at all. So am I understanding right that it's the second Nier game and part of the Drakengard series, but not really connected to any of the other games? I'm pretty sure I have at least the first two Drakengard games, but have never gotten around to them and didn't even realize there was a previous Nier game.

 

 

Man, with that selection you could never buy a game again and still die happy. I love the Uncharteds and God Of War is probably in my Top Five Games In All Earth History.


Yeah, that's a good starting point and should keep you busy for a while. Maybe eventually pick up Spiderman.

 

 

Yeah, I'm sure I'll be content for quite a while. I've been itching to get the system for years now. Glad I could finally pull the trigger.  :)

 

Although, I'll take exception to the part about dying happy without ever buying another game. My life would be incomplete without Zelda. BotW is the entire reason I didn't buy a PS4 two years ago. Had the money saved up, but simply had to get the Switch for no reason other than that. And I don't regret that decision for a second!  :love

 

I am torn on whether or not I will be buying DQ11 on the Switch or not. I like it on the PS4, but I might wait for a sale on it before picking up this version.

 

This would have been my dilemma too if it weren't for the fact that I'm only now getting the PS4. At this point, I'm better off just waiting and getting the Switch version.

Yeah, I think we all know Nintendo won pretty handily.  I guess it depends on what kind of games you're into, but...everything they showed was a winner.  I don't think there was a bad game in the bunch.

 

Xbox was probably in second place for just the sheer VOLUME of what they showed.  There's probably something for everyone somewhere in there.  And Xbox's conferences are alwasy really showy, professional affairs.

 

Taking home the bronze is probably Square Enix.  They didn't show a LOT, but they took deep dives into what they did show.  And there were a few fun surprises.  

 

Everyone else was pretty dire.

 

 

For me, Nintendo won easily in all respects but one. Even though Sony skipped the show entirely, their Days of Play sale finally got me to go ahead and buy a PS4, along with a bunch of games for cheap. So as of next weekend, I'll... have a whole new pile of games on my backlog.  :doh

 

So far, I've picked up God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, FF15, Arkham Knight, and Uncharted 1-4. I'll get KH3 eventually, but probably going to wait until it's on sale. Anyone have any other recommendations? I love action-adventure games and RPGs. Generally can't stand shooters.

Witcher 3 seems like an obvious omission.  Try and get the "Complete" version for the most content.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2 is also a pretty easy recommendation.

 

Banner Saga Trilogy, you get 3 highly-rated indie strategy games.  

 

Inside and Limbo Double Pack, you get 2 of the most lauded indie games ever in one package.

 

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth, if you have any nostalgia for Digimon at all.  It does have a sequel, but it'd probably be best to stick with the first game, since you can transfer over your digimon if you want more later.

 

Monster Hunter World, probably the most popular Monster Hunter game right now.

 

Tales of Berseria, although there is also Tales of Vesperia.  Vesperia is also on Switch and Berseria isn't, so...I don't know if that effects your choice there at all.  Vesperia is usually ranked a little higher than Berseria, but both are decent RPGs.

 

Life is Strange, probably the most beloved indie "cinematic" type game on the PS4.  Probably worth checking out if you like a good story...even if it might be a little indie-movie-ish.

 

Gravity Rush 2, a interesting gravity-twisting platformer.  I'd recommend the first game, but...that's probably getting hard to find (and expensive) right now.

 

Tearaway Unfolded, a charming and creative platformer.

 

.Hack//GU Last Recode, you get 3 and a half huge RPGs.  It's a pretty good bang for your buck, if you like the style of game.

 

Divinity Original Sin 2, this one kind of flew under my radar, but it seems like everyone who plays it likes it.  More of a PC RPG.

 

Megaman/Megaman X Legacy Collections, this is just a no-brainer if you like the Megaman games.

 

Stick it to the Man-An oddball platformer/adventure game.  Kind of feels like an older Nickelodeon cartoon or Sam and Max.  It has a spiritual sequel in Flipping Death.

 

Super Robot Wars V...look there are a LOT of SRW games.  This is the one *I* imported.  It's apparently a pretty good game to ease you into the franchise.  It'll probably be pretty expensive, though.

 

Trails of Cold Steel 1-2, the third one is coming soon.  Another highly-rated JRPG.

 

Sega Genesis Classics, there are a TON of classic Genesis games in one package.  Although, with the Genesis Mini coming, I'm not sure which would be a better buy.  Both have slightly different lineups.

 

Gundam Versus, probably the best Gundam get you can get, outside of maybe importing Gundam Breaker 3 (stay away from New Gundam Breaker).

 

Spyro Reignited Trilogy, all the classic Spyro games reimagined in a great way...but even if you get the physical version, you'll still have to download 2/3rds of the game.

 

World of Final Fantasy, it's a cute nostalgia trip.  Might be worth checking out if you're a fan of the franchise.  Not a bad game, but there are better Final Fantasys on the system, too.

 

Trine Ultimate Collection, you get all 4 Trine games in one package.  Pretty good platformers.

 

Dragon Ball FighterZ, arguably the best Dragon Ball Z game we've gotten.  It's a fighting game, though.  

 

Also, one to watch out for that I'm keeping my eye on is Ghost of Tsushima.  It just looks gorgeous.  Some great set-pieces from what we've seen of the game, too.  No idea when it comes out or if it'll actually be any good, though.

Nice list. Thanks for all the suggestions.  :)

 

I already have Witcher III on PC, which is why it was omitted here. I actually just bought it recently through a Humble Store sale. If I hadn't, it would have been on my shortlist too. Same goes for Skyrim.

 

I have all the Mega Man collections already on Switch. I'm still tempted to get them for PS4 too, simply due to my preference for physical versions of things I really care about. The fact that only half the Switch games were actually on the physical cartridges still irritates me to no end, and is the reason I bought those digitally. Now that I have a PS4, I may revisit that decision.

 

Spyro is on my radar, but I haven't really looked at it much yet. I've always been interested in the games, but the PS1 graphics made me nauseous when I tried to play them before. I expect I'll get the new release at some point, but I haven't looked into whether I'd go with the PS4 or Switch version yet.

 

For all the rest, I have no more than a passing awareness of their existence, if that. I'll have to spend some time later looking into them.

I'm pretty sure I have at least the first two Drakengard games, but have never gotten around to them and didn't even realize there was a previous Nier game.

 

 

It's set seven or eight thousand years after Nier, which is in turn centuries after or in another time line from the Drakengard series.  The references to earlier works are pretty minor and fairly self-contained.  Nier had excellent writing but only competent gameplay, so if you really want the story, you're better off looking up a let's play.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.
