And I have you lot to blame for getting me into it. :-P

We're going to do either White Star or One Dice next week. I haven't decided yet, but it's going to be a sci-fi theme, regardless.

Good lord, I straight up forgot E3 existed at all this year.

Blame it on my backlog keeping me disinterested in what is coming out.

The Microsoft press conference was meh. Except the inclusion of Ted Theodore Logan in Cyberpunk 2077, which is not a Microsoft game. Overall, it was boring and Sony will be greatly missed unless Square knocks it out of the park tomorrow.

Hope8they will.

And then the heavens opened up and gave us what we wanted, unlike Microsoft.

I stopped caring about it years ago, because it's pretty much a giant c***-tease most of the time anyway, and anything worth knowing will wind up online afterwards regardless.

I won't go so far as to say it's the Oscars of gaming in terms of complete irrelevance, but it's close.

That game is going to be so, so s***. I can't imagine any scenario where it doesn't wind up being a massive disappointment to the vast majority of people obsessing over it now.

And that's not even a "Older games are better and should be preserved exactly the way they originally were!" mindset, or even a "You should never remake good games/movies/shows/songs/books/etc because they will never live up to the nostalgic appeal of the original" mindset (even if both of those things are usually true), because it IS possible to remake an older, popular game and "modernize" it without losing what made it so appealing in the first place (RE2 did a good job of this, I'd say). But I get zero impression that Squeenix even understands what made FFVII so popular in the first place, or are capable of ever properly translating that into something that will appeal to both old and new audiences. This is going to be a clusterf*** with a capital C, and a capital f***.

'Tis going to be a veritable event horizon of butthurt, and my inner sadist (i.e. my inner FF6 fan) is looking forward to seeing it, really.

Ew. Apparently the Marvel Legends Wendigo BAF is going to be going to an Alpha Flight-themed wave. Not sure why they couldn't have instead done that with Sasquatch, considering he has an actual team affiliation going there. Instead we get a Caliban wave where I was tempted to pick up stuff but didn't care about the BAF and a Wendigo wave where I like the BAF but don't care about the lineup.

Granted, I have 4/6 Sasquatch pieces so I guess I could just paint them white or something... although Wendigo has a different chest piece so I'd be stuck buying--- s***, Guardian. Was hoping it was at least Boomer. Hasbro *usually* packages a female character with the largest BAF piece, which is why X-23 and Jubilee came with BAF torso pieces.

I guess I can hope for re-release or variant release down the road (since I don't love the headsculpt anyway). Otherwise I'd have to buy the BAF by itself which can cost almost as much as buying the whole wave. Or *maybe* down the road Diamond Select Toys will do a better-looking version

If it's not an action-RPG, I'll already be disappointed.

I actually do have hopes for the VII remake, but I'm still gonna wait to hear opinions about it before I spend money on it

Finally sat down and read the Old Man Logan TPB I *thought* I had mentioned buying in this topic. It was... well, overhyped. The story is cool in its own way, although it feels like it cribs waaaaaaaaay too much from Millar's earlier Wanted on a basic conceptual level and there are a lot of logical inconsistencies (Mysterio somehow being able to fool all of Wolverine's senses, areas just seemingly going to hell simply because supervillains rule them, and a lack of explanation for why the military, etc, never seemed to step in). And the work as a whole just felt really rushed, given how quickly they got into and out of situations.

However, the little touches like what became of the heroes, villains, etc, was really nice. Things like Hammer's Fall give a sense of lore and other remnants (like Pym's giant-sized skeleton) instill a sense of wonder. While I know that Old Man Logan was used afterward, I'm kinda curious what other stories are set in that continuity.

I've never been able to stand anything Millar writes. He always comes across like too much head-up-his-own-ass edgy teen writing for my taste.

He's far from the only writer I feel that way about, though.
