ooh. that's a time sink i don't need right now. played the hell out of that back in the day and lost almost a year to SC2. the campaign is awesome. let's hope i can avoid getting sucked into online matches.

against my better judgement i played FFXV partly out of curiosity and partly due to the mostly positive reviews. i've never had a game leave me feeling so angry and empty. you can tell the game suffered from development hell, constantly changing focus and compromising the original vision. this game had so much potential and squandered it. the story is incoherent and you feel no emotional connection to the characters. most of the interesting plot points happen off screen and the game never bothers to fill you in on the details. 

i photoshopped this to express my disappointment

I mean I don't necessarily want to be phasing out video games but it just seems to be happening. Nothing at e3 so far has me more than marginally interested in playing. Bioware announced their Destiny clone and it's easy to see why Mass Effect: Andromeda suffered because of all the effort they've presumably put in to Anthem (the Destiny clone). The gameplay reveal just looked boring. I guess there's still some old games I've been meaning to replay.

I've taken the delayed/retro gamer path. I picked up a PSP with 4 games for $100. Been replaying FF Tactics; a brutally difficult game, but great storytelling, the artwork holds up, and they've added animated cut scenes to the re-release.

  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

And again they're going with useless cord length for the controllers, like 5 feet, so there's gotta be extension cords and possible modding to add roms for me to be a buyer, guess we'll see

It's a novelty, but they really should just have their entire library available in an eshop to download a play. I understand there may be licensing issues, but how hard could it be to work those out? Maybe it's a fight over which platforms they would be available on? Until they give customers a legitimate option, I say go with a RetroPie or mod an old Nintendo DS.
