The Mummy Demastered, developed by Shantae creators WayForward, is apparently solid, and definitely much better than the movie itself. As was The Lego Movie: The Game, mainly because it was made by Travelers Tales, the same folks that make the other Lego titles.

I’d be much more interested if the SNES version was with it. I’m still getting to check out the others.

the fact hat it was the first console FPS that didn't suck is what gets it it's exception, i don't see any other movie adaptations achieving milestones for the industry. and comparing a retro game to what came after it is frequently an unfair comparison. halo was after the advent of dual analog controllers, and improvements in real time rendering, that didn't exist on the N64. which gives it advantages in both graphics and control that rare couldn't have done anything about.

you and i apparently have vastly different opinions on the lego games...

Hey if games that tie in to the release of specific movies can be released after all of this time then I have hope that eventually we will get a sequel to Super Mario RPG and see Geno and Mallow again.

SANS IS A MII COSTUME IN SMASH. HE COMES WITH MEGALOVANIA. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO REACT TO THIS.

Haven't really had much exposure to Undertale so someone is gonna have to help me. Megalovania is the music he comes with right?

and of course it's the overused walking meme with the grating theme music instead of one of the actually INTERESTING characters.
why not, it's not like that game has more than one memorable character, a soundtrack with numerous much better tracks, oh, wait... IT DOES. :evil:

I mean, I would rather have Sans as a costume than as an actual fighter. Udyne, Asgore, or Mettaton would make much better fighters.

i'd rather dress my gunner up in green spandex and rubber petals than that waste of a character.
and unless they do another wave of bonus DLC fighters this is probably all that we'll get

I like the gun, at least. And of course they'd use the one character that the internet fawns over. I never got the Genocide ending of Undertale. Way too tedious. Maybe Fisk or Chara as a swordfighter skin could be cool.

i like to end on a high note, so i always do the worst ending first. Kinda shot myself in the foot there. and he's much better as a heroic antagonist than as... whatever the heck the rest of the runs are supposed to be. i'd say comic relief but he's not actually funny, like ever, and there's no real tension to need a break from save for metaton's section and metaton himself does more than good enough of a job there to not need help.

I mean, if the story Sakura told during the stream (and Toby later confirmed on Twitter) about him inviting Toby over to his house to play Smash is true, I highly doubt this is the last bit of Undertale/Deltarune we’re getting in Smash. Personally, I just want new arrangements of Asgore and Death by Glamour.

If there's a lot of connection, I could see an Undertale character making it in the next SSB, even if not in SSBU.

Sure this one will be the last one. I will believe it when I see it.

On another note, part of me wants a Paper Mario game like the first two that had partners in it.

Been playing Adventures of Lolo/Egger Land lately. It's a great series of puzzlers and I highly recommend them if you have some time to kill solving unique shove puzzles.

Been playing a bit of Gears of War 5 with my brother. There's quite a bit of trial and error when it comes to certain challenges. What's neat is that there's much more incentive to explore different places than previous entries, this time better versions of weapons and components to improve your robot companion are hidden away.

Been seeing stuff about Gears 5, but I haven't played any of the previous games. Do you think it would be worth it to jump into the series with 5, or play a few of the previous games?

On a separate note, started playing rainbow six siege on my new pc.. turns out new and fancy hardware can't make up for a lack of skill. :/

While there is a "recap" movie in 5, definitely recommend the previous ones first.

Honestly I think the original Rainbow Six is better, but it doesn't matter to me that much since I'm not much of a shooter fan in general. I prefer to stick with JRPGs with alien cat people.

My brother an I just finished Gears of war 5.

You know, for a game series that has an incredibly visceral and gore-filled style, it does NOT hold back on the emotion.

Finally beat the special Raid Boss Fortnite put out for Halloween, the Storm King (aka, the final boss of the story mode no one cares about). It was one of the harder fights I’ve faced in a video game, mainly because whether or not you win is completely dependent on whether or not you’re teammates know what they’re doing. Still, after a few days, a few ragequits, and a whole lot of swearing, I finally, finally took him down this morning, while listening to some music that really made the fight sound as dramatic as it felt.

I'm sure that now you were able to finally beat this final boss who has given you so much problems you must have a weight lifted off of your shoulders.

Now if only they'd be added to the console game.

I don't see why they would stop making them. It's one of Nintendo's most popular series.

The mobile game, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, had a crossover for a short time which let players unlock Street Fighter Characters. After a little while, Ryu was made into a Ranger. Fast forward a lot, now Chun Li is a ranger. I don't think the rest of the characters are available anymore, and no doubt the Chun Li Ranger will be limited time as well.

I just finished replaying through Explorers of Sky again, and dang it, why is this game so good at making me feel things? That line your partner says at the end about how they’re getting further away from Temporal Tower and thus further away from where you died felt like I was being stabbed. I blame the music.

Yeah music in video games can do that to you. That is how you know they are effective. In order to immerse you into the game more, they make you want to have all sorts of feels.

This stick will soon be bought alongside a digital copy of Ultra Street Fighter II.

I had a nintendo switch account until I lost the email accounts. Now I had to start over and start from scratch. At the very least, I learned that I can make Multi Button macros for PPSSPP for multi-button actions (No macros aside from punch/kick buttons pressed) such as throwing and starting a variable combo. All with my keyboard.

I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed Origins when I played it a couple years ago, so I've been eyeing Odyssey for a while and now it's on sale. But I've also been feeling an itch to get back into ESO after viewing the last couple trailers. I don't have the money for both Odyssey and ESO+, so it'd be one or the other. What do?
