All I'm gonna say is that it's a horribly, horribly flawed game but I still love it in spite of that, unlike say Sonic 06 which I love because of its flaws.
Video games are my favorite video games

RE: YOUR Desire Index
Updated my list, not a whole lot of changes:
*Spiderman went up over DMC5 pretty much solely because it's closer to release and I'm starting to really get that itch. I bet by mid august it'll be #1 on my list.
*Dragon Quest XI went up a bit since I think I put it too low last week. Not really huge into RPGs but I mean, I'd give it a try if it comes down to it.
*RE2make went down a good chunk since I thought about it and honestly I probably won't play this. Horror games aren't my style at all and if I couldn't get more than an hour into REmake last Halloween I don't see this going much differently.
*I don't care about the three new additions at all, all being from franchises I've never played once in my life and have no real interest in, so they get a nice comfy seat in that "don't care but don't outright dislike either" category. Shadow is the lowest since it looks really uninteresting and Forza's the highest since I probably would actually give it a shot if I had an Xbox One.
RE: Anime! Who's watching what?
I honestly don't know much about the whole Magical Girl genre of anime but after finishing the first season of Sailor Moon I gotta say it definitely hits a lot of the same notes and vibes that your average Super Sentai season does. That's not a complaint by any measure, I had a great time with it. If I had any complaints it'd mostly be that the whole ending arc felt way too final for just a season finale, though I guess that can be chalked up to an executive saying "this is printing way too much money to end it now." Also the fact that Minako joins the show pretty late and barely gets any focus as a result, but I'm assuming that'll be rectified in the later seasons.
RE: YOUR Desire Index
Would you rather -
A.) Keep the thread like it is and update your original post.
B.) Create a new post with your most recent Desire Index when the next batch of games come
I’m fine with either option, just wanted to gauge your thoughts. In any event, I hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
I think B is the better option if only because we're already making a post anyway to say we updated the original post, and either copy/pasting your older list or just doing it from scratch isn't that hard (the latter might even benefit in re-weighing the list with new additions or if you just have a change of heart between weeks.)
@musou-tensei I can't imagine Venom would totally no-show. Maybe he'd just be a secret boss or something if he's got no relation to the whole Sinister Six thing.
RE: The Naughty Dog Agenda
I don't really have anything to add to the discussion (I watched the video but as someone who hasn't actually played any Naughty Dog games besides TLOU I can't really comment on them) but I find it kinda sad how everyone just keeps acting snarky and talking shit about each other instead of either trying to have a civil discussion or just leaving the thread.
RE: [Official] What are you playing?
I'm not a sports guy by any measure but sometimes I just get in a mood to play sports games, and I ended up buying two of them on PSN recently. I'm not really enjoying MLB The Show 17 much but I love what I've played of NHL '18 so far. I guess that comes down more to the sports they're based on than the games themselves though.
RE: YOUR Desire Index
Guess I'll offer my thoughts on my list placement since just saying "I updated my list" is kinda boring.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - I don't get obsessive with Smash Bros. but they're always good times and I can't wait for more. That, and it's doing exactly what I wanted out of 4's DLC back or 5 back on the Wii U and bringing back everyone. Also, I feel like a lot of people go into these games knowing who they'll main since they wanna play someone from "their" franchise and it feels nice to finally have one of those myself with the Inklings since Splatoon is the only Nintendo IP I have a real attachment to beyond "hey this is pretty fun I guess."
Devil May Cry 5 - BANG BANG BANG
Spider-Man - I just really like Spider-Man and wanna websling around new york city. Webslinging probably won't be as good as SM2 back in the day but it already looks better than most of the games since then.
Cyberpunk 2077 - That trailer at E3 was one of the best things about it and got me excited. Totally off my radar until then but I'm sure I'll pick this up now.
Kingdom Hearts III - These games are dumb as hell, but in a charming way. I can't say I've played every one of them but I'm always willing to give it a chance. That and the Pirates of the Caribbean world looked genuinely better than I ever anticipated out of this game. Liked the world in 2 as odd as it felt there and I can't say I'm complaining about getting to go back to it.
Skull and Bones - Seems like everything I liked in AC4 without all the stuff I didn't. Can't complain.
Red Dead Redemption 2 - First game was good stuff and I'm absolutely down for more.
Control, Resident Evil 2 Remake - Neither of these are the kinda things I normally play but they looked pretty cool at E3 and I think I'd be willing to at least give them a shot.
Team Sonic Racing - This could go either way really. I liked All Stars Racing Transformed and while this is a massive step down roster-wise it'll probably still be fun. Only real reason it's lower than the two above it is because that team gimmick is gonna make or break it and I'm not 100% confident.
Babylon's Fall - I'll probably care more when I know more than just "Platinum's making it."
Ghost of Tsushima, Sekiro - Might be cool but I dunno, I'm not gonna keep tabs on them or anything.
Fallout 76 - Same deal, mostly lower because I don't trust Bethesda games to run well on consoles and my computer's a toaster so I'd be stuck with the PS4 version.
Dragon Quest XI - I can recognize that it'll be good but games like this just aren't really my cup of tea. Honestly I might switch this and 76 next time.
Halo Infinite, Call of Duty Black Ops 4, The Elder Scrolls VI, Gears of War 5, Anthem - Don't care in the slightest, their placement is kinda arbitrary but I tried to put it in an order of "most likely to play if I could only pick out of this list."
The Last of Us Part II - I don't hate TLOU but I also think it's only like a 7.5, maybe 8, and nothing I saw at Sony's show convinced me this will be much different. While I'm honestly more likely to play this than the five above, just due to the nature of most of them being either Xbox exclusives or better on PC (again, toaster), I think I'd actually enjoy them more than this if I were to play them all.
Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! & Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! - This game is my anathema. Not just everything I don't want in a Pokemon game but a lot of things I just don't want in games period. Considering I already didn't like Moon and didn't even pick up Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon it feels like it's been a while since I've been able to enjoy a new release from this franchise. Here's hoping for 2019's offering.
RE: That's News!
This isn't really much of a news story but considering Deception IV was the only thing I was actually looking forward to this month (and probably the only thing this year outside of Trackmania Turbo was really interested in) I'm mildly upset.
RE: Easy Allies Podcast - Official Discussion Thread
@sacred-arfaid I can only speak for myself but it's not about whether my skin is thick enough to take a slight. I know a lot of people don't like fanservice games and that doesn't really bug me. Everyone's got different tastes after all. It's just a bad look to spread a message of Love and Respect but then to ignore that when it comes to something you don't like and say that you'd be a better person if you didn't buy or enjoy "those" kind of games.
