#81

Saw this coming a mile away. There is no reason to buy an NES/SNES classic.


#82

Cuphead is out


#83

Super Mario Odyssey switch bunch on preorder for Amazon prime members, got mine.


#84

I stared at the Switch for a long time today and declined to pull the trigger. Someday but not today.


#85

There’s a Layton iOS game? Wonder if it’s any good.


#86

I bought Cuphead and played it a bit yesterday. Love the art style but Jesus fucking christ that game is insanely difficult.


#87

I’ve been playing through it with my roommate. It’s probably my favorite side scroller since Super Meat Boy. Also just as hard if not more so.


#88

I predicted an N64 Classic, which is definitely coming, but oh boy Nintendo is gonna pull a fast one. This would actually be worth buying.

In case you were not aware here is an entry from a series of videos in which someone reads cringe comments online about gaming in the style of an artistrocrat.

#91

That definitely helps me know how to split the money on my purchases.


#92

#93

Well, apparently Injustice 2 is adding the Turtles as characters, which is weird.


#94

It kind of makes sense with the ongoing Batman/TMNT crossover and Injustice being about universe hopping.


#95

#96

They’ll reach over 500K by the end of the day.


#97

It was -500K an hour ago.

Of course, Reddit being Reddit, not only do they think that fake internet points mean anything to EA, a bunch of essentially random EA devs have been getting death threats, doxxed, and mass harassment. Most of them aren’t even people who worked on battlefront - because after all, it’s reddit, if you’re going to do something fucked up and horrible, you might as well do it to completely the wrong people, too.


#98

And now that EA has lowered the cost to get the characters people were crying about, they’re going to think they can get whatever they want this way.


#99

Well, let’s be honest, Reddit already thought that, partially because horrendous abuse has worked before, partially because reddit as a group is entitled as fuck and think it’s their due.


#100

In-game purchases have now been completely removed from Battlefront II.
