  1. MtG is a classic CCG, finally in a robust F2P package. The current sets are supremely well balanced - I highly recommend anyone interested in card games to try it out. I am enjoying limited the most - essentially opening fresh packs, making a deck out of just those cards and trying to win up to 7 games (before 3 losses) to earn more cards + currency.
  2. Discs in general are out the door - it's all streaming & digital here on out. I understand not everyone has decent internet, but it's certainly headed that way.
  3. Super excited about - as both a huge L for alt right idiots and a big W for seeing the end of a great trilogy done the way the original creator wanted.
  4. Halloween (1978) is still the finest I've ever seen - and I'm a huge fan of the genre. Carpenter was firing on all cylinders back then, and I think only Peele has a shot at taking the crown as his craft continues to mature.
  5. This is incredibly naive & problematic
  6. Straight up. There is no benefit of the doubt for these idiots
  7. I rewatched The Winter Soldier with my wife on a plane - it was her first time. I love it still - the cast is great and Evans has so much heart as Cap it won even my wife over. Most of the action is weighty and readable, and the story beats are still compelling after many rewatches. 9/10 fan favorite
  8. Sony is in no financial position to do this. A pipedream for corporate fanboys, at the end of the day.
  9. Whenever I have time to play a game, I look at what's out and buy it digitally. Gigabit internet means It loads up fairly quick. With a family, I try to budget one game a month but lately I haven't really bought much.
  10. Twitch is the first thing that made me feel old. I'm in my mid30s and can't think of a bigger waste of time than watching strangers play video games.
  11. Some people have more money than time, I understand that. Options are a good thing to offer.
  12. Front Mission games were amazing, and I'd kill for a new big-budget Switch release. Feels like it makes a ton of sense - they could even throw in some PvP to suit the MP nature of the console.
  13. Nah, don't have time for that and a career and a family. Games are for fun, and working this hard at them to 100% is... not.
  14. NYC here - only keep the latest console(s), buy digital everything. Living in the city for so long, you learn to appreciate not spending money on "collections", as they just end up being a hassle to store and move. There is real freedom in just owning digital goods and the bare minimum needed to play them.
  15. I am waiting til my new speaker system is in before starting anything new - it's killing me having a new TV but holding off on starting something new on it.
  16. Magic the Gathering: Arena, for me. I have not yet played RE2 or Sekiro but I am hoping to find time soon.
  17. Good riddance - dude is a terrible human being and has nothing to do with the game anymore.
  18. The rise of a white supremacy breeding ground & the reluctance to do anything about it.
  19. Oh yes, I'm already there. Gigabit internet, no desire for clutter - a smaller system with no disc drive sounds great.
  20. Link's Awakening for the original Gameboy. I took it with me on vacation to India for a Summer and I was engrossed in it. It felt like I was on an adventure in the real world, and when we got back to the relative familiarity of a hotel I could play Link going on his little adventure.
  21. Magic the Gathering: Arena. Pretty much the only game I play these days, though my new TV set up will push me to try more 1X games. Once I get a speaker for my new TV, I'll probably pick Ori & The Blind Forest back up and try to finish it.
  22. Dead Space had me shook for a minute. Loved it to death. I haven't played Mass Effect 2 yet, but it's been on my list forever. These days, I enjoy listening to more TTRPG Podcasts like Androids & Aliens, though. It's a great D&D in space campaign that scratches that RPG itch while I listen passively.
  23. I've gotten rid of all my 'collections' pretty much. I read digital comics, buy digital games, iTunes movies & music, etc. The less physical stuff you own, the better IMO. Obviously I'll buy stuff for my kid, but for me I want to own as little clutter as possible.
  24. They won't make Stadia open source, but I agree with your first point - they'll play around with it for a few years before killing it off. I think xCloud is poised for success, though. Azure has been experiencing strong growth and they are getting ready for some very interesting moves RE: the xbox brand.
  25. Ghost Trick had an incredible pet - based off the creator's own pooch. If you've never played the game, I highly recommend it - such a charming, warm, comfortable game to dig into.
