Isn't the PS Classics lineup problem that most of the good games were 3rd party so it would be harder to get all these companies to agree on the inclusion of their games?

Yeah but Nintendo didn't have a problem getting third parties to cooperate: Capcom, S-E, Namco, Tecmo, and Konami all threw in great games.

How did we end up in this parallel universe where Nintendo is the popular one with 3rd parties?

Has anyone read any of the articles that touch on the working conditions at Rockstar?  People having been in crunch for over a year, being forced to come in on one or even two weekend days?

Personally I think there's no excuse for this.  It's bad management and stands in stark contrast with how much money their games make.  I don't see why they can't just hire more staff to finish their games.  Games development seems like a very volatile sector, I'd assume they could hire staff on short notice and for short term as well.

I saw it, but I'm not entirely upset by it. That's mainly because this is nothing unique to Rockstar. It's really more of an industry issue. When I used to hang around a bunch of game developers when I lived in Dallas, this was pretty much the norm as their projects got closer to their deadlines. Granted, that was mainly because during the first months of game development they were all kings at fucking off. At Ensemble Studios, they had a giant arcade and a movie theater built in their office. They weren't exactly getting a lot of work done every day they were there.

I'm sure things are different now, but I also wonder just how different. Anyway, like you said it all comes down to bad management one way or the other.

They should have really kept Lords of Shadow 2 off the list. That game brings the entire franchise down to limp status. Like waking up with Melissa McCarthy sitting on your face instead of Jenny.

The crunch is horrible but at least they get results. Most of them get big bonuses when it breaks sales records and it will. The game is incredible they should be proud.

Playing more RE Revelaitons 2 and I have mixed feelings. Awesomely crisp and detailed on the tv in the interiors at least. The motion controls are great but need second stick turning for the outer edges of the screen. The gameplay feels a little like they are imitating re4 but in a rather bland and drab way. This is the 5th re4,style re game and it feels a bit tired. Which I guess is why RE7 happened. But it's more about the design and originality here, this is no Re4.

The Revelations games in general feel like very generic side games to the mainline RE series. Which is really what they are. Still fun, but they don't have the gusto that the big entries have. Everything about them feels very low-fi. Almost like Crystal Chronicles compared to mainline FF.

Saw this idiot kid running across the road repeatedly in front of cars, including my own, at night. In his white jacket for halloween.

Also saw a Stranger Things style group of kids, including one in a wheelchair, walking as a group across the road protecting the wheelchair user with outstretched arms. Warmed the heart.

GG, what are your thougths on the upcoming new Super in Splatoon2?  It seems pretty overpowered to me, both good at splatting oponents and covering a lot of ground.  It'll also be hard to avoid because it can be used in many ways.

It looks utterly ridiculous. It's like having Mario's power hammer + invincibility all at once. It will be difficult to avoid and highly annoying. Have you seen the new sub (todays updates)? Now there are heatseeking missiles.

Ugh it's like they are determined to unbalance the gameplay like Tentamissiles with automatically aiming and overpowered subs and specials now. Thankfully I play more Salmon run these days. I did see the Booyah bomb in action, seemed fun.

They update has already landed?  Might try to check it out myself tonight then.

To be fair, it's not like the previous new subs and specials have flooded the game.  I've seen them pop up in a handfull of matches, but no more.  And who knows, perhaps the hammer will be coupled with some fairly useless weapons.

I'm back to playing Turf Wars after having given the game a rest for a while.  I guess it's also got to do with how things have been incredibly busy for me for months on end, so 15 minutes here and there is as much as I can squeeze in for gaming at the moment, so Splatoon is perfect for that.  That and I'm just having too much fun with the bloblobber.  yes

Love the bloblobber for Salmon run. It's so quick and inks perfect escape routes at the last minute.
