On Nintendo particularly, in the past I said Switch is a tablet with a custom pad and I still stand by it. I'm sorry but nothing grounbreaking can ever come out of a tablet's processing power in our current day and age, again the only game worth playing on any Nintendo platform is Zelda and really how many reiterations of a Mario 64 platformer can you play until you get bored? And please if you want a "tactics" type of game get XCom 2 and/or Atlas Reactor and/or Duelyst and/or Smite Tactics, that thing looks like "this is an intro for 12y olds to tactics games" than a full fledged tactical RPG. It's also funny how they present the console as a thing that everyone will pool around a table to see people play, get it out of your head, no one will spend time looking at you playing a console on a random table. - "Nintendo, we have puzzles and bubbles in all the irritating flashy colors since 1985!"
To Magicman in particular, question to the panel, How's that FF14 experience this week? ( I hear top notch queues, questing bugs, DCs and overall bad server issues. #FinalFrustration14 ? )
Da-Bomb to Vampyr, from what I've seen about the game it seems that story driven RPGs are more what I look into games, dark, gritty, immersive and let's hope with great replayability. A-Bomb to people that think that "fun" is a synonym of "competitive", it's not, while one leads to a happy feeling the whole day the other leads to frustration, rage and an unconfortable feeling when you win.
Question of the Week, If I have to pick quality and quantity all in 1 company's presentation I'd say Sony won with 4 good mid-high quality titles (Spiderman, Call of Duty, Destiny and God of War). If I have to pick top 3 games I'd say in order Anthem, God of War and Vampyr. If I have to pick Top Rehash Gaming Companies, Nintendo and Bethesda won by far.
Weekly bomb: I'm gonna start by giving an a-bomb to Q. Please take no offense to this Q. It's a pleasure to listen to you and everyone else involved in the podcast, but i was thinking to challenge my self to take a shot each time she says "you know" and "i don't know". I gave that up quickly as... you know... i'm not much of a drinker and ... i don't know... i'd probably just comatose in 10 min.
I've also got a weekly bomb to an update i've been waiting for some time for Gloria Victis, the combat update. It is early into the update, they call this a soft launch of the update, but i am disappointed at the moment. While the animations are cool looking and realistic, the combat still doesn't feel good to me. I hope they can fix it, but for the time being it gets an a-bomb.
