I must second the Dark Cloud 2 remake, really enjoyed the music in that game. Also the camera invention system was cool and so was the golf mini-game.

As somebody who played Skylanders (Giants), I have to say that it's actually a fun game.  Greatest game ever?  No way.  But fun.  When you weren't being frustrated trying to get your hands on those last three figures you need for your collection, that is.  (In the end, I got every character that was released in generation 1 or 2 of the game, but just one copy of each guy.)

I think they're running into the same issue that the Guitar Hero/Rock Band genre did.  So much hardware, and every game/generation has to add its own into the mix.  Pokemon Rumble, Disney Infinity, Skylanders 1, 2, 3 (and I've seen trailers for the next entry in that series already)...  There's just not enough room at anyone's house or wallet to hold them all.  I think this is a genre that's going to burn out soon.

That said, one of the things that helped Skylanders succeed was that the figures are high-quality and have designs cool enough that you don't get depressed every time you see them.  Nintendo will, I assume, also succeed in this area.  And they've got one advantage over Skylanders: they'd be building a game with established characters that players love and will want to have.  They'd just better not pull the Disney Infinity crap with the blind grab bags of tokens.  I don't like that game's general design, either, where you can only play with characters in their own world or in the sandbox where you have to build your own game.

So if anyone can make it work, it's Nintendo.  But I won't be buying it, or a Wii U just so I could play it.

And yeah, a Fallout 4 announcement would make my month.

Funny that you post that as it was JUST revealed that Super Smash Bros. Wii U will be the first title to use figurines. How is anyone's guess, which I think is stupid. You can't just say "We're adding figurines to one of our biggest system sellers. more details later" and not expect worst-case-scenario rumor overload.

Haha spot on with the narrator description with Transistor.
All in all, not a terrible game, but I've sort of lost interest in it, just doesn't seem to have the driving power of other games.

I think Transistor's flat, detached feeling goes a long way towards conveying the world and alienating players.  Kinda interesting how it worked out.

So yeah, Episode 80 is now live!  We will, hopefully, record two podcasts while at E3.  Look forward to it!

KOTOR 3 #Believe
Actually, I don't know, KOTOR 2 bugged out on me so much I never actually finished it, but it'd be cool for Bioware to revive the franchise.

As for Destiny, pretty hyped, might end up buying a PS4 just for that to play with friends.

This E3 just hoping for Capcom to revive one of their other franchises, they got so many to choose from. They actually kind of tried it, making that new strider game, but you got franchises like Godhand and Breath of Fire, maybe even a new Demon' Crest? I would also settle for a Capcom vs SNK 3 or new Onimusha. Hell, make an updated Super Puzzle Fighter or Gem Fighter.

Glad you guys talked about Drakengard! I have a theory that all the gameplay problems were a deliberate design choice put in by Yokoo Taro to upset people.

I also kinda want to play wasteland now.
