It's 2019 - Time to Hype New Releases!


#442

Epic cares about the individual game. It’s why the best store doesn’t have a shopping cart.


#443

protects the monetary integrity of each person


#444

yea this is definitely not steam’s/a business’ ideology with all that animu oppai available :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#445


got a feeling i’m gonna need this at some point :blush:


#446

Ditto… Looks so good. :smiley:


#447

Some people didn’t even notice it at E3 2018, shame


#448

Marvelous and XSEED. That combo made Story of Seasons. Which I, unfortunately, didn’t really like.


#449

Extremely gorgeous game. Wish there was a demo version. Reminded me of Legend of Mana - the general feel, not the art style.

Shut down the thread, 2019 is over

Day One of THQ Nordic’s Pre-E3 Shenanigans


We went from this:

to this

More screens while I try to contain the hype:



This is the peak of gaming and everything will be downhill from here

For those of you who don’t know about this masterpiece, it never got a proper PC port. It does for Spongebob what The Stick of Truth did for South Park. It’s a 3d platformer with the entire world as seen in the show and pretty much every character and locale you can think of, and it aged like wine everywhere except in graphics.

I mean purely on a texture and lighting level, too; the animations around the board were and are still great.

I got excited when THQ Nordic worked out the legal minefield, but I expected HD ports. I didn’t ever imagine seeing this level of care put in.

ARE YOU KIDDING???

I CANT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING OMG WHERE IS A PRESS RELEASE I CAN BOMBARD MY FRIENDS WITH YESSSSSSSSSS

I really like spongebob


#452

So soon! I will hopefully have some energy to do a little recording of it tonight. :smiley: Got the OK from the publisher to release gameplay video/etc before release. So that’ll be my sole project tonight. (Plus dinner, lol)

… ahh, the woes of working until 8 pm on Wednesdays (on the books, I am actually here until later most of the time.)


#453

This is the closest you’ll get to a press release:

Nordic confuses me.

The press kit is another story though:

Those were in-engine screenshots…


#454

Been on my WL for a while, this one! Please @ me if you link to your video here!! :butterfly:


#455

I talk a lot in my videos, hope you don’t mind! :smiley: I will throw it on here when it gets uploaded!


#456

You talking a lot makes me feel better about me talking a lot as well! So much the merrier. Looking forward! :butterfly:


#457

Hope it’s good game and you don’t fall asleep while making it! :smiley: Seriously, get some rest man!

Don’t worry about talking a lot. She doesn’t like accents, especially slavic ones. You are in the clear :stuck_out_tongue:

TL:DW
Releasing November 15, 2019
New Region
New “Superpower” - Dynamax
Will have multiplayer
New Feature - Max Raid Battles (designed around multiplayer)
Some pokemon can only be caught from Raid Battles.

My thoughts:
Max Raid Battles are NOT going to work out well. Like…at all.

@coralinecastell, the first video is uploaded. YouTube is taking its sweet time getting all of the resolutions ready, so it seems to only play in 360p right now. I would wait until all of the resolutions are done processing I suppose. Not sure how long it will take.

2nd video is actually done as well, will be releasing on a timed schedule in approximately 7 hours.

Hope you see something you like in there. :smiley: I will try to take this Let’s Play series as far as I can.

@onLooSe, talking about accents. I guess you are only going to have some people who like your accent. :stuck_out_tongue: I can’t talk in a slavic accent even if I tried. haha…

Fortunately I didn’t fall asleep, but I need to get to bed now, so to prepare for another work day coming up soon. :man_shrugging:

That’s a pretty gruesome but nice teaser.
