Yep that looks like Shenmue alright. Actually kinda like the Nancy Drew games too, in that it seems quite laborious to move around.

Still think my favourite moment was Vinny's tractor flipping over the cliff, lots of extra points for "I feel so bad for my tractor, what did I do? how did I treat you so wrong?"

Elsewhere, Eurogamer has a Final Fantasy 7 LP going on that I'm enjoying quite a bit.



I doubt I'll have the time or inclination to replay the OG FF7 myself before the remake hits so I'm glad to have other folks out there doing all that heavy lifting for me.

It's gonna be hard to top Janina's video list.



And here's that Dan thing. It's full of spoilers though.

Wow that Janina video :pacdown

Dan actually pretty much nailed the broad strokes of each of those plots, well done him.

I find it quite hilarious that most of the personal categories have been 2-6 minutes long and Brad does three categories in half an hour.

I watched through the 2 1/2 hours of Jeff rating every face, def quality content. Pretty happy that Abby also put this years' Sims 4 expansions on her list.

It's interesting the way they're structuring GOTY this time, talking through every game and giving them their due before they get to categories.

Spoiler for death stranding :
"the whole game is a gender reveal"
is maybe the best thing Dan has ever said

I don't know if I can ever play that game knowing that

Waypoint's day 1 podcast calling out Immovable Brad in GOTY was fun, it kind of makes me want to go back and listen to that Skyrim vs Saints Row 3 debate.

Day 4



Awards have begun, today featuring Best Story, Best Music, Best Style, and Cool Multiplayer Thing.

...Jan dropping a certain Fire Emblem track on the group at around 12:40 and everyone's reactions to it are really great and probably exactly what my reaction was hearing it in-game for the first time

Not actually that FE heavy, the transcript is most of what they say in this episode before moving on (mostly because they still plan on the FE Spoilercast)

That spoilercast is gonna own not just 'cause of everyone's general enthusiasm level for Three Houses but also 'cause I think each of the Waypoint crew all played a different house, aside from Cado and Austin doubling up on #GoldenDeer (#FearTheDeer) so there'll be lots of POV comparison stuff

Whoa



It's been a helluva run for Dan on Giant Bomb, and he couldn't be going out in a more Dan-ass new direction.

jfc this Sorkin bit on the latest Waypoint (with Natalie Watson!) is fucking hysterical

"what the fuck was that shit?" - Natalie's perfect reaction
