I liked the look of Nerobarista at first but I've played some other bartender/ have a job and read conversations games and . . . I'd rather read a book. Cloudpunk gets away with it because flying around is at least kind of fun.

There was a lot of stuff that looked interesting but nothing I was personally busting to play (apart from when the FAR trailer reminded me I still want to play the first).

Seeing Shovesy got me excited we would finally be seeing a full sequel, but nah . . .

A few games took my interest there.

Bomb Rush Cyberfunk doesn’t look like it’s introduced a single new idea to the twenty year old Jet Set Radio framework. It’s almost coming off as a kind of Giana Sisters type of copycat.

While I acknowledge that the world doesn’t need a Metal Slug 8, Metal Slug Tactics isn’t where I want to see the series go next. That’s only because I dislike tactical strategy though, I trust it’ll be a really good game for people into that style.

I’ll consider Tetris Effect Connected for the right price. I’ve already got the base game on PS4, but that’s a console that I hardly play, and it’s wound up being a game I’ve played maybe three or four times. Early impressions were really positive, and I’d probably get more out of it on my most-used console.

I thought Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon looked really promising, there’s loads of potential in that idea.

It did grab my attention when I seen a Skateboard but that didn't seem to change the gameplay like you said, it's also a year away from release which is another reason why it's hard to be truly excited.

This is the correct opinion.

There were lots of games that were sort-of OK, but I genuinely don't think about getting any new games now, such is my backlog, I just assume they're for other people. I did like Axiom Verge 2 though, even though I've not played the original; I'm very tempted by Tetris Effect but mostly because they seem to have added the NES Tetris into the spectacle; actually I think my favourite game there was Toem - you get to run around and do stuff, but hopefully no boss battles.

Pokemon Presents

28 Minutes of Pokemon content. We haven't seen Arceus or BDSP since they were unveiled, other than that slightly spruced up footage on the OLED trailer. Possibly we'll see some other minor announcements too.

It's not pretty, but the remake has some fun-looking stuff in it. I'll prob buy it after all.

It looks slightly nicer graphically than in the first trailer.

I don't hate that characters are chibi style in the overworld but not in interactions.

I'm not too sure about Arceus. Visually it's not too appealling, I don't really like the washed out look and the models and environments seem to lack detail. The gameplay seems like quite the departure. I hope it's fun.

I've been in TOH Discord most of the morning and I basically was bang on with what I thought we would see, but I said OLED not Lite etc.

I was sold on Pearl anyway as I've never played it and same with Arceus which does seem like that Pokémon x BotW like game people been asking for.

Oh man, Neil, I couldn't be more different in my Arceus opinions! Other than BOTW2, it's my most anticipated game!

D&P looks full-featured and I'll give it a go. Wish I hadn't replayed it last year though lol . . .

My post sounds more negative than I actually feel. After seeing the deep dive (I posted right after the new trailer), I'm more interested.

Also, that new regional Growlithe is cute

Hmm . . . Splatoon 3 could be up there if it looks like a big jump. If it just looks like more of Splatoon and Spla2n, I'll still be excited but it won't be my most anticipated game.

If anything were to get me back in Splatoon...

They were very minor. I was on a work call, watching the showcase on my 'phone, and I don't think my divided attention felt like it cost me anything until the last seven minutes. BDSP looks bad, yet still better than all the mobile gacha nonsense preceding it...

...of course, they then revealed more of Legends Arceus and I had stop myself from crying tears of joy down the line. That might be a slight exaggeration, but I am hecking excited. New Pokémon! New forms! New modes of transport! Being actually attacked by Pokémon! Cyrus' ancestor! I didn't notice any problems with the graphics to be honest, just that it looked a lot more together than the previous trailer we saw. Hyped for January!

I mean, it looks like a Diamond and Pearl remake to me. And a well-featured one which is pretty in places.

Only one of them is a gacha game; Pokémon Masters. Which is a shame, as it seems like it would be a lot of fun to play through all these stories with characters from across the games. Unfortunately, as you say, Gacha nonsense.
Then there's Pokémon GO, which I know isn't your cup of tea but I play and is somewhat popular here.
Café mix is a matching puzzler thing which I should have played but haven't for some reason.
And Unite is a MOBA, which is for those folks I guess. Not for me, but not gacha.

Well now you can play the remix of cafe.

Think Balla actually means mobile or pay to win nonsense.

Yep gacha was an overly derogatory term for a group of games that I'm sure aren't literally gacha (apart from Masters apparently, about which I've heard nothing good).  From what I've heard Unite has big pay-to-win aspects and even Go! sounds like it's sliding more that way with eggs and things.

So we agree then. Razz Can't say I saw anything in the trailer that made me think it's going to be much better either - apart from Electivire, which is further sign that the Platinum Pokédex is going to be in there.  That's actually a big deal, because the weirdly limited 'Mon selection was the worst bit of the original DP.  (I presume there'll be a method to pick up Giratina.)

Still one I'm going to skip, mind.  There's one person on GRcade who did the normal moaning about Legends' graphics before saying how delighted they were with BDSP which utterly fried my brain. Eh?

Unite's pay-to-win stuff is guff, and if I were interested in the gameplay anyway that might have subsequently put me off.

Go is a weird one. I play it quite a bit, get plenty out of it and have crucially never spent a penny. However, I don't really play it any competitive way or care much about comparing myself with others, plus I had a 4-day weekend last week and of my own volition walked 112km. I'm not the average user. If it's a game you play seriously, I'm sure some of the monetisation stuff can be annoying.

I don't really see much point in paying for things in Go myself. I guess if you really want to complete your dex or if you are super into competitve battling (don't understand why you would be, the Go Battle system sucks!).

You can buy raid passes and use them to try and catch legendaries, but those Pokémon require you to be with at least a couple of other people AND even when you win the battle there's still a very high chance you won't catch them. Besides, the throwing balls endlessly at legendaries is a really annoying part of Pokémon, I can't be arsed with it in Go. You can use legendaries in battles but you can't put them in gyms so I don't really see the point. But then again a lot of people do. They probably make a fair penny on those events they do which boost your odds of getting shiny Poks. For me, it's a pedometer.

As for Unite, I did enjoy playing it with my girlfriend but I've already dropped off of it. Even without the pay-to-win aspects, I think that's where most people will be heading. It's obviously grubby that that stuff is in there but I guess if you were content to just play the game then the ranking system would eventually find an appropriate spot on the ladder for you, although it would no doubt be frustrating feeling like you lost because your items sucked. To earn through play 1 fully upgraded pokemon takes about a year of playing every day or something to that effect from what I've seen (It gets worse too, each pokemon wants different item upgrades, so if you fully upgrade your Machamp it won't be anywhere near as useful on Gengar etc.) Vom.

Wow, that Unite system genuinely sounds sickening. This is completely unsurprising, of course, but at times just how blatant some of these money-grabbers are still has the capacity to make me feel unwell.
