The perks of still owning a working Dreamcast. Watching a Let's Play may have to suffice for me if Sega doesn't release remastered versions.
I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on this one. I see that there's a PC version so I could play it without purchasing new hardware, but I'm not sure that it'll be worth it. The original Halo Wars was okay, but there was a secondary quality to it (next to the shooters).
I'll probably pass on Mass Effect Andromeda. I enjoyed the trilogy, but I feel that ME3 was a good stopping point. I've played a number of Bioware games, but there's a sameness about how they're structured too (I played through KOTOR 1 and 2, Jade Empire, all three Mass Effects, and part of Dragon Age: Origins). I'm interested in hearing impressions though.
The first two seasons are on my list. I enjoyed the Game of Thrones Telltale game.
I had forgotten about these two. Both looking promising. Rime at least looks like something I would want to play.
Maybe you and Karen can play Mario Kart together while everyone else looks on in disapproval.
The Switch is a neat concept, although I do wonder how many people will use the portable nature of it beyond the Nintendo DS crowd. I sometimes play games on my phone, but that's because of the quick and simple nature of the games; they are designed for quick session that can be stopped easily, they generally either have no sound or don't require you to have the sound on, and I already have the phone in my pocket, so there's no decision to make about whether to carry an extra device with me. Console games are often the opposite of this. When I play an immersive console game with lengthy cut scenes, in game audio etc, I don't want to be distracted, I want to fully immerse myself in the story or world. So I generally wouldn't want to play that type of game on the train. There's a continuum here, so are Nintendo Switch games going to feel more on the phone game end of the continuum or the console game end?
I'm not sure how I forgot about this one... there are now two fairly certain games on my list: Sonic Mania and Phantom Dust.
