Yeah, I tried the Monster Hunter Online beta as well, and combat was about as elegant as two naked 700 pound people trying to hate fuck in a room slathered in barbecue sauce with padded, bouncy walls. The font was goddamn minuscule and unreadable from the couch. It was pretty but nothing about the game was in any way enticing.

Seriously, Mechwarrior was the first game that I ever played for a non-stop 60 hour marathon. This...is going to eat a few more weekends.

Super dated. PGI has "the heart in the right place" when it comes to MechWarrior but also a serious, long standing and well documented lack of good developers.

I guess I don't play graphical showcase games (console shooters?), because they looked good to me.

No interest in playing with unwieldy, improbably robot shooter, but it looks good.

What's worse is they look a million times worse than the already out MechWarrior Online.  It's...puzzling.

I was thinking the same thing.  Graphics aren't everything but I was expecting more from something in 2017.  Hopefully they can upgrade them before release.

Piranha's marketing department is always terrible. The video for their newest map in MOW looks WORSE than the above:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2mI7mO9-1E

It's like they gave the guy in charge of making videos a 2009 Dell Inspiron and said "Meh, it's got a G450 in it.. that's a card you can use.."

"Diablo sequels" - After reading the article I can't tell if this is all speculation or based on actual sources. Tentative hype?

That would defy the entire history of blizzards development cycle.  Granted, the company is a shell of its former self, and I guess the retarded execs could push something like that.  But still.....

Nothing there makes me think "Overwatch 2". An enhanced Overwatch edition with PvE content and possibly some exclusive Heroes (or at least skins), so they can keep selling the box for $60, yeah. But not a true sequel.

Microsoft is taking up to $200 off the price of their entire stock of 'Windows Mixed Reality'/VR headsets today, if anyone is interested in cheap VR.  The Lenovo unit is still $200, though the other $200 units are sold out.  The HP is $249 and the Samsung is $449.

You said it in two places so I'll say it in two places.

Objectively speaking, this is wrong. Demon's Souls is the best zelda game of all time.

There's certainly some question. Persona 4 and Chrono Trigger come to mind immediately as challengers.

Nostalgia is a hell of a drug. I have a tattoo from the shin megami tensei universe and I'm not about to pretend persona even nips at the heels of demons souls.

Fuck Chrono trigger.

Edit: haemish mentioned persona 5. Same response, with less nostalgia. These are all excellent games. They were excellent when they were Persona 3 also. Demons souls they are not.

Yeah, just makes me think about how our lists might have changed in the decade following. The PS3 had just barely launched when that thread was made. Demon's Souls would absolutely make my list now. I'd also probably be focused a lot less on nostalgia (and in particular games that were not particularly great but that I have a lot of fond memories of).

- Chakan
- Scheherazade
- Torneko

+ Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Dreamcast
+ Demon's Souls
+ Diablo 2

Those would probably be my only changes. Diablo 2 has a glaring absence, but it wasn't til Diablo 3 that this was really highlighted. Demon's Souls picks up the grimdark where Chakan left off. THPS should've been on it to begin with. Torneko is unnecessary with Diablo 2 on the list. Scheherazade is simply bumped.
