  1. Bleh, getting over a sore throat right now. Hope everyone else is doing well!


    Also, hi DarkCobra. Thanks for sticking around and keeping tabs on things here every now and then. Going to try and see if we can get some life back into the forum again sometime.

  2. Hey, apologies for the lack of content over the last week and a half, everyone. I was out of town for part of last week (and weekend), been busy with work, and then I had trouble connecting to the site b/c the server had mistakenly blacklisted my IP since the beginning of the week, but it's been resolved now. We've got reviews coming up, I'm aiming to post news regularly again, and I'll be around to comment on stuff. :)

  3. What does everyone think of E3 so far? Missed EA's conference but Microsoft's was pretty good, I thought. Eager to see what Ubisoft, Sony, and Nintendo have in store! :)

      Also, just a head's up, I'll be posting some stuff about the show this week. Maybe not news, but definitely opinions of some sort? I definitely want to do a piece with Barrel, Jon, Justin, and Lee on what our favorite games/moments were.

  4. Spider-Man PS4 game's release date will be revealed tomorrow! Woohoo :D

  5. Hey! I'm still alive here and checking the activity feed every day just so everyone else knows. A big thanks and shout-outs to those of you who are still lurking and doing the same (Venom, DarkCobra, Rex, among others). I'll be posting a few forum threads here between today and tomorrow so check back here for some discussion on stuff. Also hoping to increase my output in regards to articles (we'll also have some new reviews going up soon). Thanks!

  6. Crazy fact of the day: Ninja is making $500,000 a month, apparently. o_o



  7. Sorry guys, we've been having trouble posting stuff over the last week. I think normal forum topics will still work, but anything with any amount of formatting won't, which is why you haven't seen any reviews or anything like that yet. Hoping to get this resolved soon.

  8. Sorry for new articles this week yet! Ran into an issue where it's not publishing articles with formatting. Hopefully upgrading to the latest version of IPS will fix it!

  9. Sorry we've gone dark for a few days, everyone! It turns out our server was having some issues with malware slowing it down, so that's why the site was pretty much inaccessible for a day or two. Also, it made it so that you basically couldn't post anything (articles, comments, or status updates) for another 12-15 hours after that, so I'm glad things are back to normal now.

  10. How's everybody doing this weekend? Anyone playing Monster Hunter World? :)

      After telling myself that I'm not going to splurge on any more games for a while? Yes, I am playing Monster Hunter World. xD 

    2. Venom


      Pretty much everyone is it seems like.

  11. Would've added this to the State of the Podunk thread, but it might've not been noticed as much there so I'll say it here.


    If you're wondering why there haven't been any new members that have joined the forum over the past year (or even two?) other than the new GOTY writers, it may be partly due to something I just discovered in the last month, which is that people haven't been getting the validation emails they need to complete their account. I'm looking into this now, and hopefully we'll get some more people once it's resolved!

  12. Hope everyone is having a great week! Trying to clear out some games in the backlog before the year ends. xD

    1. TKtheknight


      Same! Been a busy working holiday weekend. Today I beat Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy and loved it! How are you enjoying Horizon Jason? I can see you adding it to your GOTY list.

    2. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      @TKtheknight You'll find out tomorrow for sure, TK! ;)


      Also, I really liked Telltale's GotG as well; it won't make my list, sadly, but I thought it had a great finale and all.

  13. So The Game Awards are tonight. Anyone have any predictions? The only solid one I have that will probably happen is that the Ballad of the Champion DLC for Breath of the Wild will finally be shown off and a date released (possibly even releasing tonight). I think we might also finally get our first look at Rocksteady's next game. Maaaaaybe the next Telltale project as well.

  14. Still super busy this week (and needing to get up early tomorrow), but you'll still some stuff going up this week. Hopefully even a review!


    In other news, holy cow, a new Mega Man game was announced. Ya don't see that happen every day! o_o



    1. Jason Clement

      What did everyone make of the news? I knew Capcom was announcing something new, but I actually didn't think they'd go as far as a new game in the core series!

    2. Venom


      I'm still gonna wait and see on MM11 since they didn't show much, but dayum, I didn't expect the X collection to have all 8 games. Looking forward to that for sure. :D

  15. If you haven't heard the news yet, Avengers: Infinity War trailer is dropping tomorrow! Can't wait! :D

  16. How's everyone doing? I don't want to go back to work today... xD


    Also, sorry for the lack of content over the past week; been busy and such, though we'll be posting some new stuff soon.

    1. Sailor Liztress

      Sailor Liztress

      I'm tired, lol. I got off work early today and don't have to go back in until Thursday. 



  17. If you're interested in getting one still, Walmart will have the SNES Classic at 11am PT/2pm ET today. Not sure if that includes online as well?

  18. Don't forget -- new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer premieres tonight! I'll post it here when it happens. :)

  19. Bad news, looks like Netflix prices are going up again soon. $10 plan is going to be $11. 4K plan is going from $12 to $14.

      They want to funnel more money into their originals.  My problem with that is I feel like for every GOOD original, theres like 3 crappy ones.  That and I've been using my friend's hulu lately, and they have been maintaining content Netflix has lost ( like Scrubs!) as well as having some solid original content.  Netflix has the movie edge, but not by much.  If I had to choose between the 2, Hulu all the way.

      @DarkCobra86 I just saw that; pretty interesting, and something that may get more people to switch over to Tmobile.


      @iwx Leprechaun I feel the same way about Hulu; I've been watching more and more over Netflix recently. They also have the advantage of having new episodes of popular shows as they air, which is a huge plus for me.

    4. DarkCobra86


      Yea, I wonder if other service provider will start doing that to or say like Verizon will offer Hulu.

  20. Forgot to mention it earlier, but you'll notice picture links and video links automatically embed here when you post the urls. Also, you can embed Twitter links as well; huzzah!

    1. TKtheknight


      Testing. Awesome!



  21. Insomniac has a new logo! What do you guys think? I like it, but some people are on the warpath about them changing from the old moon logo. xD



    1. Venom




      (but for realz, it's nice. I see what they were going for and they did it just fine)

  22. Okay, the good news is you shouldn't see any more spam messages in the updates since I've removed the option to post status updates for the "New Members" group. Instead, people in that group (the first group when you register an account) will need to make at least 19 posts before being promoted to "Member" and gaining the ability to post status updates.

  23. 45-minute-long Nintendo Direct mainly focusing on Fall 2017 titles coming on Wednesday at 3pm PT! What do you think they'll announce?

    1. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      A presentation that long usually indicates they'll showcase a good amount of new stuff. Trying not to get my hopes up too much, but I do think we'll get a surprise or two (like, big ones). Not sure if I expect any more games announced for 2017 outside of smaller eshop ones though.

  24. Anybody here playing Knack 2? Curious to hear some impressions.


    I think both Laddie and TK mentioned either buying or playing it, so hopefully they have something to say about it.

      Update: after playing it for slightly more than 20 minutes (like...2-ish hours) I can safely say that...it still feels exactly like the first game.

    3. Jason Clement

      @Venom So much for Knack 2 being a big improvement then! Still curious to hear what @Laddie13 thinks, though.

    4. Laddie13


      I played a good chunk of it before Destiny 2 came out, yes, it has a similar feel to the first game. I for one loved the first game, but Knack 2 is definitely improved. The most noticeable, is that Knack has new combat moves, and abilities. There is also four different levels of difficulty that actually bring a more even challenge, unlike the first game where normal was way too easy, and hard was at times frustratingly difficult. 


      Knack 2 is a fun action platformer, that mostly gets things right even if improvements from the first game are subtle. The forced (sometimes weird) camera angles takes some getting used to , but it doesn't detract from the game, and actually kind of works. My biggest complaint is the lack of online co-op, hopefully they will add it in the future.


      I wonder if the first game had shipped at the $39.99 price point instead of $59.99, if it would have been more successful? Knack 2 is getting solid reviews, and while it is improved, it's not that much different. I've enjoyed my time with Knack 2, and I'm looking forward to getting back to it once I take a break from Destiny 2. 



  25. Quick question for y'all: now that the All Activity tab shows when new articles are posted, I'm thinking of getting rid of the GP News Zone forum, which duplicates those articles for the forum. Everyone okay with that? That way these articles won't show up twice in your feed.

    1. Rex705


      Yes, you can poof it and clean up.
