Everyone I spoke to has zero interest for the Pokemon Switch games, nobody asked for them, and the Pokemon Go integration sounds forced and uninteresting.

PSA for anyone who comes here but (rightfully) avoids social media and reddit:
John “TotalBiscuit” Bain passed away last night. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. May he rest in peace after his long struggles.

If you were wondering because you rightfully avoid the emotional black holes which are social media and reddit, the internet is in fact acting just like you’d expect. It’s… a bit dire.

Holy shit, David Cage did a 180, and instead of making his games progressively worse, instead made a good game?! I am legitimately surprised, I assumed Cage doing a story about slavery allegories would result in hot garbage.

Though I think I’ve said before here, I don’t like Ridiculously Human Robots as a trope, so I’m still not interested in the game. But in terms of presentation and Adventure Game mechanics, I have to give credit where credit is due.

Me: “Oh yay, I have to unlock them! Right, this is my goal now, and I’m going to have tons of fun working my way towards it!”

Hyrule Warriors Definitive has actually ported in some of the good stuff from Fire Emblem Warriors.

You can switch character in battle now, and you can give characters you aren’t controlling orders to put them in the right place on the map so you can streamline the maps (and don’t have to repeat the story mode maps with other characters to collect character specific items)

I mean, SciFi has made ridiculous assertions before that actually came true in the same general time period.
The Outer Limits said we would have a black president in 2012. It was almost impossible to conceive, for some people they still don’t believe it happened. one of them became president himself. Then we actually had a black president.

TOL also said he would be assassinated when he gave a Gettysburg Address speech on the anniversary, but you can’t be right all the time.
