Dragon Age is the only other one I can think of that crosses gens, but you don't really need to use actual save data thanks to the tapestry thingamabob. You can import your data into the keep, but you don't have to. You can just manually make the decisions yourself if you want to, which is actually pretty smart.

The new Fire Pro seems to be doing quite well so far.

All kinds of great stuff in the Steam Workshop after only two days, including the ancient No Mercy joke Tsunderetaker and such Southpaw Regional Wrestling luminaries as THE SEA CREATURE

It feels a little weird that "watch me stream wacky CAWs!" super took off for this Fire Pro game as opposed to every other wrestling game/streamer since VGCW but I'm glad people are having fun with it.

The 2K games being stagnant, busted, and $60 investments for a minimum of ten years isn't helping matters much on that side of things, especially when there hasn't been a stream-friendly story mode since '13. The new Fire Pro being a third of the price and probably a better game mechanically despite Early Access justifies most or all of the buzz, especially since I guess this is the first one launching both in English and on Steam.

Oh yeah, Sunless Skies got funded in like a day, which is nice.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fa ... unless-sea

It's a follow-up to Sunless Sea which I really like a lot and everyone should play 'cause I feel not nearly enough people even noticed it existed. Also related to Fallen London, another thing everyone should try, be it in your browser window or on one of those devices everyone owns.

Somehow, because the universe is a bizarre tangle of coincidences, the new XCOM 2 expansion and the weird-ass Mario/Rabbids XCOM-like thing are both coming out on the same day, August 29th.

May you live in interesting times.

Go figure, I finally start getting into The Phantom Pain and Konami decides to update it a couple weeks later. Looks like they're adding the ability to play as Ocelot, among other things.

The PC version of Sonic Mania has been delayed to the 29th, but the PS4 version is still on schedule for the 15th.

Naturally the Steam community page for Mania is full of people stomping their feet and demanding refunds because I guess they can't just wait two weeks.

Whiny they may be, but really you should probably have the right to a refund at any point before a product, or any preordery part of it, ships.

And Overwatch is adding an old school deathmatch mode soon if anyone wants to relive their UT99/Q3A LAN party glory days.

Really not sure how I feel about how it looks and especially the addition of voice acting but I loved Secret of Mana back in the day so, yeah, sure.

That's a game I've always been told to play but never have, so I'd give it a shot now.

Woah, that's cool.

I tried Secret of Mana a couple of times as a kid but the game seemed way too open-ended. I inevitably found myself grinding weapons and eventually moving onto another game. Was I doing it wrong?

It's been too long for me to say for sure, but... maybe? It's certainly more open than probably most of its contemporaries, but probably only deceptively so, like there were only so many ways to approach things and most stuff is still locked in sequence as it would be in any linear RPG. A little more Zelda than Final Fantasy, but there's still a critical path.

Some of the other Mana games blow that wide open though. The next game in the series had a choice of like six playable characters each with their own origin points and intertwined stories - pretty crazy for the SNES days. That's the one I really want to see rereleased or remade or just given a proper English translation that isn't a ROM hack.

But if there's a "right" way to play Secret of Mana, it's with a second player, or with three players on a multi-tap, since it's one of the rare RPG-like things in that era with multiplayer support. My sister and a friend and I ran through the whole thing that way when we were kids and it was fantastic.

Kentucky Route Zero has console ports coming up (PS4/XB1/Switch). It's something I've had laying around my Steam library for ages but keep putting off starting 'cause the final episode still isn't out after, uh, years. But maybe the announcement of ports indicates they're getting close to completion.

It's supposedly a pretty great series, incomplete or not, if anyone's looking for adventure games on yer consoles.

Speaking of, the new Life is Strange is out at midnight. I got the PS4 version this time which came with a pretty chill dynamic theme.

Oh yeah, Overwatch added Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes today, if you wanna party like a 1999 LAN party.

I used to be pretty solid at UT99 and Q3A back in those days but I'm probably pretty terrible now, so adding similar modes to Overwatch sounds better to me than trying to get a handle on Quake Champions or that weird UT alpha that kinda-sorta still exists. All the footage I've seen of Quake Champions makes it look way, way too fast.

I wonder though if anyone in Overwatch will get Deathmatch-specific rebalances 'cause I can think of probably half a dozen characters who would be borderline useless in that mode unless new meta develops for it pretty fast.

Alright, the internet is up and running. Time to get back in the groove.

Speaking of: Tales of Symphonia is five bucks on Steam right now. Should I get it, or is it too outdated at this point?
