I feel like a topic like this is long, long overdue (and I've been meaning to make it for like a year now).  It's clear we're more than just RPG gamers, but sometimes it's hard to initiate topics for "small news" between all sorts of game genres and platforms.  So POST away!  I guess this is kinda like the "Today's News" topic but for gaymz.

So yay!  We got VGX tomorrow, maybe we'll see/hear cool stuff there.

But also want to share this:
http://www.siliconera.com/2013/12/06/let-love-bloom-within-indie-kickstarter/
This looks amazing and like a bit of a throwback to those sort of those large-sprited 2D games you'd see (I like calling them "HD-2D") like Elemental Gimmick Gear....but with quite the artistic imagination.  I'm sad it didn't hit its first round of goals because this looks fantastic (especially compared to the gold-striking "Soul Saga" whose creative reservoir is about as deep as a puddle and soaked in Final Fantasy "inspiration").

This got posted as well and it looks trad RPG enough despite it being a smartphone game.

Also that dragon sure looks like Bahamut.


Also also, the only reason why I'm bothering with today's VGX is because Nintendo's going to be there and I feel they're going to actually announce something. The rest of the show though can go shill up a rope.

I can't believe my twitter feed right now. People actually thought Nintendo was going to announce a new title? At VGX instead of on Nintendo Direct? Not watching VGX but from what I hear about Cranky Kong gameplay, I'm actually less interested in Tropical Freeze than I was originally. So, good job Nintendo?

I'm watching VGX and taking notes for "How NOT to make jokes".  Because holy ass, it's so so so bad.

I think even the interviewers were underwhelmed since they were also asking for more.

Female orgasms and testicle jokes. Yeah. the cringe-levels are high. Why is this 3 hours.
Mega 64 best bit so far.
And Elijah Wood is cute, i guess.

I actually didn't hear about Broken Age till right now and I was completely hooked.  My eyes were wide, but then I'd throw up in my mouth a bit with the garbage coming out of McHale's mouth.

Lol. Expecting anything outside of the western gaming industry circlejerking and shilling itself out to Lamer Fule Doritos and Mountain Dew (or whatever the fuck they're calling it now) from the VGAX is like expecting your Christmas to go exactly like one of those shitty ABCFamily channel original Christmas specials (you know, the ones featuring bottomed out wrestling stars and Seventeen magazine covergirls).

Yep, It's very pretty-looking.
To be fair, the quantum break (pre-ipad -sland-simulation) was interesting, and I am still waiting for the witcher 3 section, which should be delicious.
But the jokes are so bad I wish they would just stop trying. Like... just act normal or something.

I'm not entirely sure what No Man's Sky is, but it's easily the coolest-looking thing they've shown at this event so far...

And for FYI purposes, Ni no Kuni won it for VGX's RPG of the year, beating out FFXIV and two Nintendo games that realistically had no chance of winning (because Pokemon is for babbees and what the fuck is a Fire Emblem). I'm honestly kinda surprised FFXIV didn't win this one, but I suspect that Ni no Kuni only won it for being the hipster choice (well that, and being the only game on that list released for a console and is not an MMO).

I found Ni no Kuni a B-grade game if not for the big names behind it.

To be fair, if there had been even one WRPG on that list, it would have singlehandedly smoked the rest of that list combined (even if it had been as unplayable as Dragon Age 2).
