@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (12 November 2019 - 07:54 AM)

2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 November 2019 - 05:10 PM)

But why does the God of Death need a giant space kaiju? Wait, never mind, answered my own question.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 November 2019 - 02:15 PM)

Yowza I just realised Titans Trypticon comes with Necro AKA Censere AKA Mortilus.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

I... think the best equivalent would actually be the British "There is room for improvement".

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

There's always a sense of irony to it, but what the ratio between irony (you really failed) and straightworwardness (at least you achieved something) is depends on the situation and the speaker.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:12 PM)

The meaning can be both literal (you succeed on one level but fail on another), or it can be utterly ironic (you fail in every regard but the most technical; or even worse, "you really gave your best"), and anything in between.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:10 PM)

For example: A singer can hit the notes really well, but clearly isn't a native speaker and what little of the lyrics you can make out sounds nothing like what it's supposed to be.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 01:06 PM)

The premise seems to be the mixing of technical and aesthetic technical qualities towards the overall success.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

But both "hollow victory" and pyrrhic victory" are referring to having lost as much as you've gained. IE; a battle was won but both armies were destroyed. The town being seiged is victorious, but all the soldiers are still dead. Nevermore's concept is more "You did it, but it's so ugly we don't know if you actually succeeded".

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:35 AM)

Alternately, one could probably also call it a "hollow victory".

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:35 AM)

Example: In the Powerpuff Girls episode "Uh Oh Dynamo", the monster-of-the-day was a really tough, giant-size one that required the use of a really destructive mech to defeat it. While the monster was ultimately beaten, the city of Townsville was utterly trashed by the mech's weapons in the process. So, while the city was saved from the monster, it was harmed even worse by the mech that saved it, making the victory bittersweet.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:32 AM)

@Nevermore, sounds to me like what one might call a "bittersweet victory". The goal was met, but at great cost or by disastrous result that call into question if the achieved goal could even be called a success.

@  Arvegtor : (10 November 2019 - 09:40 AM)

Seems to be close enough to "Pyrrhic victory"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 November 2019 - 09:37 AM)

What do you get from putting the German term through a translator?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 08:57 AM)

That is a ridiculously interesting concept. But I don't think english has a singular term for what you're describing.

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).

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.

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.
