Waiting for Battletech to get cleaned up and patched so it can go on sale in a year.  :P

I wonder why Beth doesn't pull a valve and just hire some of the mod makers

Because it's easier to adopt the mod after the fact and cash in on the fact these guys just developed new content for you for free?

The REAL question is, why doesn't Squenix simply adopt fanmade remakes and port them over instead of making those horrible, horrible mobile ports...

I lol'd because I didn't know that line had gone viral enough to be somewhere aside from that one anime I don't know the name of.

It's Arakawa Under the Bridge

I have seen it in other anime

Have never been much of a Fallout fan, and could care even less about online/survival/mmo. Next main series Elder Scrolls when? Granted modders are still putting out awesome content for Skyrim.

Gacha (lootbox) reap in the cash for mobile. It's gambling. It's unbelievably unhealthy on so many levels.

I enjoyed SQNX remake of FF:Adventure/Adventures of Mana. Control scheme was on point for mobile, I was initially worried about it. Well worth the up front money in a quality remaster for me.
Seems like Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger have mixed reviews, and the company has mixed success with support and patching. FFXV weapon upgrading remained broken for me for my entire relatively slow playthough when it launched. Nier PC remains with many bugs, as I understand.

Was not even aware of the Go series, those franchises I've spent limited time on.

Steam's permissive stance has the consequence of now needing to make sure the algorithm and mechanisms for promoting and finding good content is solid and free from abuse. I don't want to wade through a sea of trash when I'm casually browsing for something new and interesting during a steam sale.

So just me, or this E3 pretty bland so far? Mostly just a bunch of previews with no barely any gameplay, nothing really world shaking that I saw.

Here's hoping for Nintendo's presentation and the Super Smash Brothers Switch tournament.

Yes, I know, it's been 6 years since someone on this forum asked for it to be released in North America, but it happened!  And I bet the Super Best Friends had a hand in it, considering they did a full LP of the game, and asked their viewers to bug From Software about the game.
What do I win?
An awesome-five for mentioning Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

An odd choice https://www.gamespot.com/articles/new-xbox-one-backwards-compatibility-game-now-avai/1100-6459892/...I wonder if this is an indirect confirmation of  a remaster version of MW2.....I remember making new friends on MW2, but I have more fond memories of MW3 due to screen shots and video captures.
