Guts as a raccoon, from the makers of Just Cause: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5Zcrc8x5mg

Looks even better than your description, like BotW with mechs. :guts:

I really want Metroid Prime 4, but seeing as that won't be out for a long time, I guess I have to play Samus Returns. Even though that's what caused the death of AM2R, I still have it, so heh heh.

Nioh is coming to PC! Previously a popular Dark Souls evolutionary derivative I couldn't care less about (hmmph!)... that suddenly think I might maybe definitely play! Funny how that works. :carcus:

It's cool, but most of the bosses are lame.

That is excellent news. Like you, I am suddenly very interested in Ni-Oh!  :void:

Looks interesting.  It's widescreen and I think that's a first for the classic variants, and this makes Mega Man's sprite look smaller.  It looks like the model changes when you switch weapons and I like it  :ubik:.  The art style could be distracting during intense moments, but it looks like they are trying to limit the number of enemies on screen.

I want to be excited, but the most notable part of this game will likely be its title.

The new look is giving me too much of a Mighty No. 9 vibe for my liking (I think it's the wonky running animation). But my kid is certainly excited. I showed him the trailer this morning saying it would be out next year, and after school, his first question to me was "is Mega Man 11 out yet?" It's going to be a long year. His other feedback from the trailer: "Oh no, moving platforms again?" (this kid gets it).

Man, kids are hilarious.  The concept of time is completely lost on them.  I busted out my Wii to play with my 4 year old daughter.  It is softmodded with a bajillion games so, of course, she picks Babysitting Mama.  Apparently there is a doll that comes with the game that has a slot for a wiimote.  Obviously, I dont have this doll so we had to hollow out a baby doll and stuff a Wiimote into the thing.  I think we had more fun trying to get the controller into the doll than playing the game.  I don't think she's gonna be much of a gamer but oh well at least I tried.

There's a great Giant Bomb segment on this game: https://youtu.be/XMEg6mfTfF4?t=7m8s

The bearded fellow's shaking technique is superb.

Congrats on the Santa Void.

 :ganishka:

WELL!!? :isidro: :???:

When he ascends to his proper place as a Mega Man Master one day he'll see those moving platforms and smile like Guts when a doomed horde of monstrosities foolishly approaches.


I have to say, I don't have that childlike enthusiasm for this one. It looks like NEW Super Mega Man Bros. or something, and it's clearly a successor more in the vein of Mega Man 7, 8, etc, if that, than the classics. Also, it feels a little perfunctory after such a wait (even MM10 had lost the novelty and felt redundant after the awesome return to form of 9), a Mega Man-like game with mediocre graphical update. A bit too little, too late for me perhaps. It also doesn't help that it's following Shovel Knight, which was basically the ultimate iteration of this specific style of game, including the two-player co-op I always dreamed of (BTW, it's still releasing new content!). Mega Man 11 just looks like another unessential MM variant.

Hot damn, I loved Bayonetta 1 & 2. I was wondering a few days ago if there would be another game.

Not sure how people felt about this ghoulish game back in the PS1 era, but it's being brought back from the dead! :SK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMSI7nS2z-g

It's a remaster of MediEvil for PS4, if you don't want the surprise

Bloodborne II? Probably not. It looks like new Tenchu, or perhaps completely new IP. I already have Nioh Complete Edition on my sight and I don't know if I want two samurai souls-like games. Whatever, it already looks good! ... as a sneak peek, but still xD

Yep, I'm guessing Tenchu. From Soft acquired that at some point in the 2000s, though they weren't associated with the earliest games (which were my favorite). Still, would be neat to see what spin they put on it these days. Particularly if it's something more than "Tenchu Souls."

In other video game announcements, Capcom is releasing this amazing thing:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/vpUXoCqD6GM" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/vpUXoCqD6GM</a>

12 arcade-perfect ports in one package: Street Fighter 1-3 (and all variations) + Street Fighter Alpha 1-3. Coming to all modern platforms in May. So much for that garbage Switch port at launch!  :ganishka:
