6:13 PMmatthew wilsoncyberpunk (my game of show) he gets moment a show

6:14 PMmatthew wilsonhe is a big deal, he is all thought the game

6:14 PMaddictedtochaosI don’t doubt Cyberpunk will be good, but I haven’t seen anything from it that says I have to have it.

6:14 PMmatthew wilsonaparently the only one with more voice lines is the player

6:14 PMaddictedtochaosThey stated he has the 2nd most lines in the game.

6:14 PMaddictedtochaosBreathtaking

6:14 PMNightmare NinjaYour breathtaking

6:15 PMjordan thompsonbut imagine if hes the villian ….. what a twist

6:15 PMmatthew wilsonApril

6:17 PMaddictedtochaosSilverhand

6:17 PMmatthew wilsonjohnny silverhand

6:24 PMmatthew wilsonit uses satellite data

6:25 PMjordan thompsondid we learn nothing from the flight of the navigator movie

6:28 PMmatthew wilsonam I the onlyone who sees the irony of ms buying double fine

6:29 PMjordan thompsoncool 9 storys, 7 which ive already experienced in lego

6:29 PMaddictedtochaosAnd they are all the same.

6:30 PMjordan thompsonI know its weird but I want an Alien lego collection game

6:32 PMaddictedtochaosYes it is the Japanese voices from the show.

6:33 PMjordan thompsonyou could id just be astronomical

6:34 PMNightmare NinjaWay of the Woods is the deer game

6:35 PMmatthew wilsonI mean most of them are march, they seem to be letting cyberpunk have April to itself. (who can blame them)

6:36 PMaddictedtochaosGears, the most bloodsoaked dude bro gun fest. Now an emotional tale.

6:36 PMjordan thompsonspeaking of gears 5 at this point they dont need to explain arnolds age as the terminator I think syknet could deduce that an elderly man wouldnt be deemed a threat to regular humans

6:37 PMmatthew wilsonI wont buy it, but the elite controlers are legit good

6:38 PMaddictedtochaosStill ridiculously overpriced. $180

6:38 PMmatthew wilsonchris avalon is doing the writing for dying light 2

6:39 PMmatthew wilsonbaldur’s gate

6:39 PMmatthew wilsonis what he wrote

6:39 PMmatthew wilsonspeaking of which baldur’s game 3 was revealed by the people behind the devinity games

6:39 PMjordan thompsonbut Zach ZACH!!!! it is branded elite, isnt that enough for the asking price???

6:40 PMjordan thompsonI dont want to live on this planet anymore

6:41 PMmatthew wilsonpso2 came out in japan 5 yeARS AGO

6:41 PMmatthew wilsonSO IT WAS A ETF MEMONT

6:41 PMmatthew wilsonsory for caps

6:42 PMmatthew wilsonits big in korea

6:42 PMWarren LewisHey all!

6:43 PMjordan thompsonwhenever I talk about fortnight I sound like a parent in the 90s “whats this Pokemon thing, its never gonna last it’s a fad”

6:44 PMmatthew wilsonI am not sure what ms was thinking their

6:44 PMaddictedtochaosGotta keep it family friendly

6:46 PMmatthew wilsonI mean if you know anything about cd project red, you know they are very not safe for work games

6:47 PMmatthew wilsonwell cd project red does have all the money, witcher 3 has sold over 20 million units

6:49 PMaddictedtochaosFrom Software not CD Projekt Red

6:50 PMmatthew wilsonraytracing is legit cool btw

6:52 PMmatthew wilsonhalo 1 was THE game that sold the og xbox

6:53 PMaddictedtochaosProbably Cortana now

6:53 PMNightmare NinjaI have no idea what to feel about Halo 6

6:53 PMNightmare NinjaRather see gameplay

6:54 PMmatthew wilsonwell its a 2020 holiday game, not shocked at the lack of game play

6:54 PMmatthew wilsonhistory is inportant, halo was the first fps to control ok on consoles

6:55 PMmatthew wilsoncyberpunk has gameplay, they plan to release it after gamescon

6:55 PMaddictedtochaosSurely by now there is a portion of a level they could show.

6:57 PMmatthew wilson2 hours

6:58 PMmatthew wilsonlol

6:58 PMmatthew wilsonthats on you xackery

6:59 PMmatthew wilsonaparently its faster than 2016 version

7:03 PMotritzuTetris 99 works, and can be pretty fun. If you don’t mind the frustration of getting piled on towards the end of your run.

7:06 PMNightmare Ninjathe girl who presented the game was cute

7:07 PMNightmare NinjaThat is true


7:08 PMNightmare Ninjalol

7:11 PMmatthew wilsondeathlop is a year+ out. seems hitman stle to me

7:11 PMmatthew wilsonthat seems to be the implacation anyways

7:13 PMmatthew wilson“conference”

7:15 PMmatthew wilsonthats the point andrew, its making fun of supper rehersed press confrences

7:23 PMmatthew wilsonyes there is 20 minutes uncut to go watch

7:31 PMmatthew wilsonits a civ style game set in the fuuuuuuture

7:44 PMotritzuI’ve put in over a thousand hours on Terraria.

7:44 PMotritzuAccording to Steam, anyway.

8:07 PMaddictedtochaosI have no faith in SquareEnix to not screw this up.

8:08 PMaddictedtochaosBoth

8:11 PMotritzuSupposed to be a remake, not a reamaster

8:12 PMotritzuFFCC isn’t a game that needs great graphics. The game’s gameplay was the draw, not the looks.

8:12 PMotritzuI’ve actually played the GC version of FFCC. It was pretty fun.

8:13 PMaddictedtochaosLast remnant was originally on 360.

8:17 PMaddictedtochaosDisappointed that Oninaki is only going to be digital.

8:18 PMNightmare NinjaFF8 finally

8:18 PMNightmare NinjaI’ll be getting it on the Switch

8:19 PMNightmare NinjaI rather get the one on the Switch

8:19 PMaddictedtochaosAvengers looks bad, from a character design standpoint.

8:21 PMaddictedtochaosNever expected them to look like their MCU counterparts, but they could have at least made them look like the comics and they simply don’t.

8:21 PMNightmare NinjaAgree

8:23 PMaddictedtochaosTheir Captain America really looks bad.

8:23 PMNightmare Ninjayes Mana’s is nintendo

8:24 PMaddictedtochaosWidow looks fine except for her face. Cap needs redone head to toe.

8:24 PMNightmare Ninjalo

8:25 PMaddictedtochaosStark needs different hair and just a goatee. Thor’s beard looks like something he was wearing rather than something he grew.

8:27 PMNightmare NinjaNessa was big on Twitter

8:27 PMaddictedtochaosYes she is

8:27 PMNightmare NinjaYes Water Gym leader

8:29 PMNightmare NinjaI was excited for DQ Hero

8:29 PMNightmare Ninjabeen playing the DQ games

8:29 PMNightmare Ninjagood point

8:31 PMNightmare NinjaBrave

8:33 PMaddictedtochaosThe Scarescraper is the online

8:33 PMNightmare NinjaLuigi’s Mansion 3 producer says you can eat Gooigi which was… uh.. okay.

8:34 PMotritzuThe Luigi Smash…Kinda like Hulk Smash.

8:34 PMNightmare NinjaThat was a great new thing, Luigi beating up ghosts

8:36 PMNightmare Ninjathey need more time for sure, I’ll give it a chance. ;pve the movie

8:36 PMNightmare NinjaLove

8:38 PMNightmare NinjaYou can

8:39 PMNightmare NinjaSomeone showed that you can steal from guy

8:41 PMNightmare NinjaWe want a real full version of that

8:44 PMNightmare Ninjagot Collection of Mana, never played them before.

8:44 PMaddictedtochaosFor those interested Collection of Mana is getting a physical release in August

8:45 PMNightmare Ninjayeah I got it digitally

8:49 PMaddictedtochaosThe fact they got Witcher running on Switch at all is impressive. Also the entire game will be on the cartridge, no download required.

8:49 PMNightmare Ninjayeah

8:49 PMmatthew wilsonyup its fire emblem x persona basicly lol

8:50 PMmatthew wilson5 and 6 the 2 bad ones

8:50 PMNightmare Ninja5 And 6\ yes

8:51 PMNightmare Ninjanot interested in 6

8:51 PMNightmare NinjaChris pushing a rock

8:51 PMNightmare Ninjawhoa is a spoiler?

8:53 PMNightmare Ninjajust a pic yes

8:53 PMNightmare Ninjayeah I rather get the collection

8:54 PMNightmare Ninjano reason to get

8:57 PMaddictedtochaosRemake of the first one.

8:57 PMNightmare Ninjanever played it

8:57 PMaddictedtochaosEarlier this year Sega said they were remaking the first 2.

8:58 PMNightmare NinjaNessa was a big star of that

8:59 PMNightmare Ninjato busy?

8:59 PMNightmare Ninjathe trailer

8:59 PMmatthew wilsonstill cant figure out if astral chain ias on the side of baynota (5 to 8 hours), or neier anamata (20 to 30)

9:00 PMNightmare Ninjaoh interesting

9:00 PMmatthew wilsonboyanata is a score attack game, its rather short

9:01 PMmatthew wilsonauguest

9:01 PMaddictedtochaos8/30

9:02 PMmatthew wilsonthere are a lot of switch games, just not your style

9:03 PMmatthew wilsonit is their game

9:03 PMAndrew EisenOh yeah, I’m certainly not saying there are no Switch games, just not a ton for me.

9:03 PMNightmare Ninjaand that’s fine

9:04 PMaddictedtochaosThis is a big one for me. Though, I’m a big fan of X-men Legends and Ultimate Alliance.

9:04 PMNightmare NinjaI hope cadence of hyrule does well

9:04 PMmatthew wilsonits avraging a 89 right now

9:05 PMotritzuIt’s a blast

9:05 PMmatthew wilsonip cost

9:05 PMotritzuI’ve played it, the game’s price is probably an IP thing.

9:05 PMNightmare NinjaI have been playing it

9:05 PMNightmare Ninjait’s very good

9:05 PMmatthew wilsonb/c eshop updates on thursdays]’

9:05 PMNightmare NinjaIt changes every time you play

9:06 PMotritzuCadence of Hyrule is definitely worth the money.

9:08 PMNightmare NinjaThe same can’t be said for gamefreak

9:08 PMNightmare Ninjain delaying the game

9:09 PMNightmare NinjaI love the co-op

9:10 PMaddictedtochaosSpyro is just like on the other systems, only the first game on the cartridge the other 2 half to be downloaded.

9:11 PMmatthew wilsonfull crossplatform play/progression

9:11 PMmatthew wilsonyes it is, even they admit it

9:11 PMNightmare Ninjawhich one?

9:11 PMotritzuHonestly, Dauntless gives you much easier matchmaking and Cross platform play.

9:11 PMotritzuDanger meter is a thing, yes.

9:13 PMaddictedtochaosAt this point if Nintendo doesn’t give the Duck Hunt dog and duck their own platformer they are missing a golden opportunity.

9:14 PMNightmare NinjaThere’s leaks for a banjo game out there

9:14 PMmatthew wilsonguesses?

9:14 PMNightmare NinjaI hope they are true

9:15 PMaddictedtochaosI want Vyse from Skies of Arcadia

9:15 PMotritzuDisney would probably veto Sora being in Smash.

9:15 PMAnberyeI would rather they have aqua instead of sora if they go the KH route

9:15 PMmatthew wilsonmaster chief might be a good one

9:15 PMotritzuDo keep in mind Sora’s a Disney IP.

9:16 PMNightmare Ninjadid you hear about the leaks for the banjo game, Andrew?

9:16 PMAndrew EisenI did not, no.

9:17 PMaddictedtochaosWouldn’t mind Jade from Beyond Good and Evil

9:17 PMNightmare NinjaThat rider from excitbike?

9:18 PMmatthew wilsonthey claim darker than majora’s mask

9:18 PMNightmare NinjaI hope for Zelda playable

9:18 PMNightmare NinjaThat way the title now makes sense

9:19 PMAnberyeplayable non shriveled ganondorf pls

9:19 PMmatthew wilsonlate next year earlist

9:19 PMaddictedtochaosUnlikely, best case scenario she will accompany you for a chunk of the game.

9:19 PMNightmare NinjaOh yeah zombie ganon

9:20 PMmatthew wilsonthough the trailer is clearly winking and noding at dongens

9:20 PMaddictedtochaosI’m predicting a holiday 2020 release.

9:20 PMNightmare NinjaLeon I need help!

9:21 PMaddictedtochaosYeah hopefully not a giant escort mission

9:21 PMmatthew wilsonnintendo, and game of e3 was cyberpunk

9:21 PMNightmare NinjaSony and Nintendo pretty much

9:21 PMmatthew wilsongame of e3?

9:22 PMaddictedtochaosNintendo ended with a mic drop.

9:22 PMNightmare NinjaThey let us know which games they will show at the treehouse in the direct

9:22 PMNightmare Ninjawhich was cool

9:28 PMNightmare NinjaThey listened to the fans

9:28 PMNightmare NinjaI hope Gamefreak did that

9:29 PMaddictedtochaosAnother mini console I don’t need but will still buy.

9:31 PMaddictedtochaosI like that Konami is starting to remember that games are a thing.

9:31 PMNightmare Ninjait was fun to listen
