Okay, this reveal trailer and talk of action combat has me super nervous about this game.  Hopefully I'm getting all worked up over nothing, but I really miss the grounded tone and character designs of the original game.  Granted, we've only seen three characters so far, but I"m getting a way more fantastical/mystical vibe instead of the heavy military themes from previous entries.  Not to say there weren't fantastical elements before, but I'd rather be playing a solider with a gun (or a squad of soldiers) instead of a dude/dudette with a sparkly sword.

Am I just being crazy and reading too much into this stuff, all?  Maybe it's just a case of a bad/misleading trailer...

Enjoy episode 101, everyone!

I love remakes like the original Resident Evil on Gamecube and the now coming to America (fucking finally!) Dragon Quest VII.  If they want to go in and change a ton of stuff, then I'm on board.  I'm still bummed they didn't put the cut dungeons from Wind Waker back in.  Huge waste of an opportunity.

Also, I still think Link in the 2016 (yay, right...) Zelda looks like a girl and I still think they're being cagey as fuck about his/her appearance.

Dice nailed it.  Huzzah!

Glad y'all liked the review!  I think you'll have fun with it if you like the Bethesda style of RPG.  It's got lots to see and do, and it's certainly an interesting world to lose yourself in.  I think they need to shake things up the future, however.  It's kinda weird to be playing with the same basic mechanics since Oblivion.

My review will go live tomorrow morning.  Please look forward to it!

The Walking Dead is about ready to jump the shark if it turns out you-know-who is alive.  That's probably the cheapest way to create viewer interest since "Who shot JR" or Dallas' "It was all a dream" nonsense.

....yeah, the big twist is kinda stupid.  Not trying to toot my own horn, but I actually managed to guess it after watching the first real Phantom Pain trailer nearly three years ago.  It was pretty obvious.

Well, this game has completely taken over my life.  Must say that it took me a little bit to get used to all of the mechanics and tools available to Snake.  The power progression is pretty neat, too.  I felt completely helpless against tanks and helicopters in the early stages but now I have C4, rockets and the good ol' fulton balloon to keep them off my back. 

I'm really interested to see where the story goes.  The Giant Bomb crew talked about how crazy things get when the credits roll...

Mike nailed it with his explanation.  D3 is as casual or as hardcore as you want with no need to respec your character. 

And yes, jars of spiders and flamethrowers made of bats are usually the best way to handle most problems.  Don't listen to people like Stephen who argue about fucking wizard shit.

Trust me, with all of the text it would be an absolute pain for a split screen mode.  It's not really comparable to an online experience, but it's still one of the best couch coop games out there (and they don't make many nowadays).

Nope, every player shares the same screen when playing couch coop, Andrew.  I would recommend bringing a book or something because only one player can use the menu screen at a time to change gear, skills, etc.  Jacque spends a lot of time in menus and it can get a little annoying when you just want to throw spiders at monster.  ;)

Is jank a bad word to day these days? 

Nightcrawler was amazing!  Derek was right to point it that it was a reductionist argument to say that movies are targeted towards children, but I really feel like television is pushing narrative structure, characters, and themes in a way that most (again, I say most) movies simply aren't interested in even attempting.  Sure, you have Ex Machina pushing the ideas of what it means to be human, but for everyone one or two of those "under the radar" films you have tons of audience pleasers designed to bring in a lot of cash.  Nothing wrong with that, of course, but I love how television shows like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Americans and Game of Thrones attempt to try new things in the medium.  It's also way easier to have these "slow burn" stories when you have hours and hours to tell them. 

And The Mark of Kri was amazing.  Real shame what happened to the sequel...
