      Hope you like Final Fantasy 6 because I think that's one the big ones he's bringing to the table next week :)

    Where do I BEGIN? Ill keep it in list form

    1. Chris Davis, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PRONOUNCE MUSOU CORRECTLY. It is not "Mosu", its pronounced "Moo-so". Every time it was pronounced that way I wanted to die. Im sorry.

    2. In terms of PS4 Pro, my opinion is like this. I feel like if it does go down the phone route, with every year being some form of upgrade then its beneficial to wait every two years to get whichever increment that you want. the Iphone 6 vs iPhone 7 really isnt that big of a difference, where a real difference would be between iPhone 6 and iPhone 8. I feel like you would get more bang for your buck if you're doing it that way rather than buying the new model every year UNLESS consoles go down a route like the "iPhone Everything" plan where you're allowed up grade every year for the new iPhone when you turn in your old iPhone. Granted we don't know everything. The obvious answer to this is to build a real gaming PC and buy a Steam Link. They're 50 dollars and work great.

    3. Hearing you guys talk about Re-Core really sold me on it. It wasnt even on my radar but it does sound like a good game and it might actually get me to switch to Windows 10 just to play it.

      4. Forgot about the Zelda stuff. I've never finished one. I've played Minish Cap, Windwaker and Twilight Princess to almost completion. I just lose interest. I think they're good games but just not for me.

    Reminder: Brad mentioned the T.T. words out loud. Now we're all impatiently waiting for a new Trailer Talk.

    Krispy, your dumb for think that this isnt anything but amazingly polished and wonderful...

    Lol. I have never played a Zelda game, but have been think about it for a while. Does anyone have a suggestion on where to start?

      They mentioned it on this podcast, but 'A Link Between Worlds' might be the best place to start off with Zelda. Although the easy difficulty put some of them off a little, it might hook you enough to go back to 'A Link to the Past.' This is exactly what happened for me at least~

      Unsure where the best place to start off with 3D Zelda, specifically, would be.

    Been hearing a lot of good things about Attack on Titan. And if all of that hadnt sold it for me yet, Krispys "She's pretty hot. She also has no skin" certainly did it.

    My one comment about Link to the Past - felt like it overstayed its welcome. Once I hit the dark world, I felt like I was done with the game. Not in a "the game was bad", but a "I just dont care anymore" type of thing.

    Nick! You referred to DMC3's styleswitching and weapon switching tactics, as something you would compare to the same "color-coding" combat system that ReCore uses. I can partially agree, but I think DMC3's combat deserves a lot more credit than that!
    Sure, you could attribute the similarity to the bosses perhaps, because certainly some styles and weapons are much more effective than others for specific bosses; I can understand Trickster for the last Vergil battle, and maybe even Beowulf for the battle with Nevan.
    However, the key difference is that in DMC3, you could potentially defeat any enemy or boss in any way, using cunning or by simply being a stubborn lunatic, like me. What makes DMC3's combat so interesting, was that, even in situations where bullshit was happening, like Arkham's jelly-blob battle, there were times when I truly felt like the combat was a custom experience that I could tailor to my own style. Even if I knew my attacks were doing little damage, I was having fun because the game gave me the freedom to be stylish. "Color-coded" combat systems usually don't give you such freedom.

    Btw, I'm sure you remember that original edition of DmC literally had color-coded enemies at times... thusfore you didn't have the same kind of freedom I was talking about because you HAD to use the right weapon...

      The color coded combat of D-little-m-C is one thing in particular that I disliked about that reboot for the reason you wrote. It felt like it stripped away some of the freedom and forced you into using a specific weapon for specific enemies. Dmc3 was enjoyable because I'd find my own way of playing the game, my own favorite weapon and style, and have fun playing it that way whether it made it more difficult or not. It's not as if that wasn't intentionally designed as well, because you could upgrade specific weapon move sets and styles and such.

      Not to mention, I feel like visually it became a little stale seeing enemies or weapons in only two different colors, red or blue.
      In ReCore it sounds like it might have a similar issue, for me, as the DmC reboot had. I'm still going to give it a try when I can though, because the rest of the game has enough of my interest!
