Tekken was so close. It's just so much more fun than Street Fighter.

RE: E3's Winners, Losers, and Weirdos
Winners: Me. I didn't hate any of the conferences. There were improvements from everyone. Each conference had games I was interested in.
My personal fave though was Sony, purely because I own a ps4 and so was more invested in the announcements. I also really enjoyed the effort put into the show, with the music and light effects. They set the tone and made it feel important. Sure they didn't wow me like previous years, but I think that's on me for expecting crazy things. It did give me a remake of one of my fave games though, SotC, as well as a Monster Hunter. God of War is the first in the series I have any urge to play, it looks great. Spider-Man looks pretty good, though I want to see more of how it'll work on street level. Uncharted is a series I love, so more of that is great. Horizon DLC is great.
Loser: Yeah I actually don't think any of these were losers. Each conference showed something cool. I might not have understood why Bethesda needed a conference but it wasn't a failure, they showed two new games coming out this year.
The closest to me not caring was EA, though I still didn't hate it. I could never hate a conference that had A Way Out, which looks great.
Weirdos: Ubisoft. Not in a bad way. Mario + Rabbids is super weird, I just can't believe it's a real thing and that it looks as good as it does.
RE: E3 2017 Bets Showdown
Well I really enjoyed the Betting special. It was fun and Kyle and Huber did a great job hosting, and Ultima really knows how to be the classic villain ☺
That being said I'm sad Cold-blooded lost, purely cause I don't care to watch a Dark Souls stream and I thought his stakes were far more creative and interesting. I really hope to see more creative stakes in the future since I think they fall back on streams as punishments too much.
RE: Box Peek - Kyle Bosman's puppet show extravaganza
Amanda gets some good publicity for the show ☺
Surprised me when I saw this in my youtube feed.
RE: Hidden gem game recommendations
I know a lot of people know it, but I don't hear a lot of people talking about it anymore. It's long and weird, but it's got such a great soundtrack and I love the mech battles.
Vagrant Story, as someone else mentioned, is an under appreciated Square Enix game.
RE: Games you feel compelled to go back and replay?
Mass Effect. It's the only game I replay over and over again.
It's like a fave book or movie, I just want to experience the characters and story over again.
RE: Kyle Bosman cheating E3 bets last evening.
I would guess Huber is probably finding this funny as well.
Anyway, this is a part being played. He's trolling.
I for one am looking forward to the next betting. Kyle will have to up his game because obviously Huber and everyone else will be on the look out for loopholes.
RE: Anime Openings
Uverworld - Dtechnolife from Bleach
L'arc en ciel - Ready Steady Go from Full Metal Alchemist
Vision of Escaflowne
Well I have started down an anime rabbit hole....
RE: Easy Allies Betting Special PSX & TGAs - Fan Bets
Woo! Tied for last!
RE: Selective Creation: Choose the 25 Essential PS4 Games
Street Fighter V
Megadimension Neptunia VII
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
Senran Kagura: Estival Versus
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune
Gal*Gun: Double Peace
Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-
It's the game I've played the most of this year.
RE: EZA Community Hype Jousting - First half 2017
@Stephleref Well people are really hyped about the return of old school platforming.
Not to mention, as surprising as it may be, not everyone loves Zelda. So it was likely a case of people voting against it, rather than for Yooka-Laylee.
RE: Selective Creation: Make the Best Modern Day List!
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Let's put the best JRPG of modern times on this list, only to watch it be unfairly killed two seconds into this game 😅
RE: Devolver's "Press Conference"
Might have been better for me if they had actually, you know, talked about their games more.
Some of the bits were funny, but some of them went too long and it felt a little too try hard for me. That seems to be the sense of humour of Devolver though. A problem is gonna be, for the people who don't like that sense of humour, that is now gonna be tied to any Devolver games they see. Could hurt them. Though this is gonna be meme bait, so it might get more people interested in their games.
Most importantly this, and Bethesda, should have just been videos released instead of scheduled conferences.
RE: What was your first exposure to your favorite games/series?
A bizarre story...
My favourite game series is Mass Effect (that I now need to specify is just the original trilogy)
Owning only Playstation I never played the original. Once I got a PS3 I looked for games to get and people recommended ME, so I bought ME2 and played it. Well I did for an hour or two, and never got into it and forgot about it.
Later when ME3 came out there was a demo for it. Now elsewhere on here you'll see me write about my love of demos, and this is why, because I played the ME3 demo and adored it. Not entirely sure why I liked it more than 2, probably an immediately more gripping start for someone with no knowledge of the series, or maybe I liked the combat better. In the end though j bought ME3 and played it all the way through. With a new love of the characters I went back and played 2, and then I played 3 again being able to bring my Shepherd to both games. AND THEN I bought the original game on my PC to play it.
So in the end I played Mass Effect backwards. And then forwards 😊
Guess the Metacritic (2018)
Using your extensive knowledge of how games are developed, who the developers and publishers are and your own experiences, you will predict these games' metacritic score! Or you know... you can blindly guess them.
So guess the score, guess a delay, or guess a cancellation.
Voting will close on January 15th, so good luck and have fun!

Guess a delay to 2019 = 5 Points
Guess a cancellation = 10 points
- You can not guess a score and a delay. It's one or the other.
- For multiplatform games the score will be the best available. So if it's 88 on PS4 and 94 on Xbox One, then the 94 is the one that will count.
- There a lot of games on this list, but there are plenty I didn't add and there will likely be plenty more we don't even know about yet that will release this year. If people wanna guess other games, sure have fun but only the ones on this list will count toward this game.
- Everyone commend @Alex840 for coming up with this last year.
- You don't need to guess for all the games I guess, but why not just blindly slap a number on a game and see what happens.
L&R and have fun with this.
