    I think my favourite part of prey is the amount of stuff you can freely jump up on. There are so many areas that you can get to with out having to acquire the key simply by figuring out how to jump over the obstacle.

    I like Mass Effect more than any other EA franchise by a large margin, but i understand the decision to set things on hold, and reevaluate the future of the franchise. I just hope that it won't be gone as long as dead space or the like.

    Regarding the financial state of Square Enix. They announced that Final fantasy 15 broke even in terms of development costs on day 1. Which might involve fudging numbers from before it was called Final fantasy 15, but is still impressive. So it seems like Tomb raider and Final fantasy justified their role as key square enix franchises, and Hitman was unable to live up to that.

    Sounds like the next Far Cry game will take notes from the movie Hell or High Water. If y'all haven't seen that movie, I highly recommend it.

    I honestly got kinda upset about the next assassins creed having ship combat again. Unpopular opinion here, but i can't stand the ship combat and ended up dropping Black Flag because of it.
    Also thank you nick for reminding me that Dishonored 2 exists and that i need to play it and brad for reminding of the new fire emblem as i echo you feelings on Awakening and Fates.

    Ok, now that was an alright Ad. Little Ceaser's Pizza I can get behind, at least pizza is kind of a gamer food.

    The real horror game this Spring is Prey. Forget Outlast, Mimics take the cake.

    It was their B-team Nick, the fucking idiots who worked on Dragon Age Inquisition! Who the hell thought they would produce an astounding sequel to the ME series? EA or BioWare could have just asked any fan of the original series about the game before putting it out, and it would have saved them this humiliation. It was a disaster, one that killed such a wonderful series.

    Precisely Krispy! Dragon Age Inquisition had no memorable characters, no interesting plots, and its only selling point was the scale which was immediately outdone.

    That's what happened when you release your game in an episodic format and you're not Telltale, you fail. Hell, even Telltale has been taking things slow because they have been getting shit for how long it takes them to put out episodes.

    That Nappa Ad though, not good.

    I'm really glad Krispy and Brad enjoyed Nier Automata as much as they did. I wanna see their Spoilercast of it as soon as possible.
