Gotta catch up on that, plus the last however many episodes of Crowbar & Sickle, since Waypoint's video content takes forever to get to YouTube.

On the subject of upcoming content, though...

I haven't seen The Wolf or Dirty Dan yet but they'll probably be up there by the time I finish typing this sentence.

The inevitable conclusion to the Pants Saga was one of the funniest things I've seen them do in a while.

Catching up now via the Twitch archives. It has chat replay, which is funny 'cause whenever Patrick says "ruff" instead of "roof" everyone in the chat is like "the ruff? what?"

you americans don't get to say shit about non-american accents anymore as long as so many of y'all are saying "ruff" instead of "roof," just sayin'

Overland looks really cool, like a post-apoc XCOM-lite with some Oregon Trail stuff. Looking forward to seeing how it develops.

Yakuza 0 is done, though Majima's turn at the end is like Adachi-esque... I guess he's an established character later in the series, but then why make him so cool in zero? :pacdown

Brad's expression is pretty much on point there. I really bounced off those games, but I have very little interest or nostalgia for Disney's main cast.

Then why is AluminUM special next to PlutonIUM RadIUM SodIUM MagnesIUM and all the other elements that have a nice tidy naming structure?

I mean it's par for the course with English as a language, but that one seems needless. Just like adding Zs to a bunch of words that were perfectly fine with an S.

Americans just gotta take ownership of their unnecessary linguistic mistakes, to the point of spelling stuff wrong and pretending they're doing it right. :pac

Yeah, same here. I guess I was just a year or two too old when the Disney renaissance started in the 80s, so it's just not one of my personal cultural touchstones. That said, I think the Final Fantasy-ness of Kingdom Hearts is worse than the Disney parts, or at least it is with KH's original cast, but that's just my hot take from that first episode.

Maybe that'll improve, and at least it's something that can improve; I can't say the same about the actual gameplay, certainly not after seeing that goddamned platforming stuff. Uggghhhhh.

Yeah I didn't like 3D platformers at the time, but I liked FF enough that I wanted to try the first KH out. I remember those damned trees in that race with Riku. Also why would you call one of your main characters Riku when Rikku was one of the cast of the most recent FF at the time?

The platforming and combat were both lacklustre to me, the FF is pretty sparse and the Disney license stuff never really got me. But hey, once again watching someone else play the game and talk about it makes it more tolerable to me.

I played as far as Monstro in the first KH before dropping off forever. I remember it being kinda crummy. Bad platforming and dull combat. But part of me was also just grumpy that it wasn't the "crossover" I wanted. It's way more Disney, with cameos, rather than a mix of Disney and FF worlds, which I would have liked.

And, of course, by now, the Final Fantasy stuff is basically nothing. It's a crossover between Disney and Nomura's OCs by now.

Final Fantasy changes so much between iterations that it's hard to tell if it even has "series fans" any more, or just a whole lot of people split into various camps. The 16-bit camp, the PS1 camp, the people who only played X, the Ivalice folks (that's me I guess), the fuckin' dorks who somehow like all the XIII games, etc.

There's like one dude in a goon basement somewhere who still plays FFXI and refuses to move onto XIV. Just one though, nearly extinct, like seeing a white rhino in the wild, or a Vanilla WoW truther.

I think straight-up Disney games, if done well, would be way more interesting, and I don't even care at all about Disney. Like, those old Genesis games were oddly well made for licensed products. People seemed to like Epic Mickey. Whatever that Cuphead thing is would be perfect for a Steamboat Willie game.
