Volgarr the Viking is headed to PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy

A Luigi Fanatic

Zesty takes: Links Awakening HD looks awful and is horrendously optimized, the Sonic franchise is overhated, I feel physical pain when people call Minecraft music parodies nostalgic, Pokemon shouldve scrapped the National Dex a long time ago

 
kevlarmonkey

A very old friend sent me these Cant wait to dig into them!

 
ScionVyse

Spicy take: Any character creator that doesnt allow and encourage creating inhuman monsters is a bad character creator, because character creators shouldnt really be taken too

 
Virtua Kazama

Pringus Mcdingus did a very cool thing regarding hands of Tweet

 
Shoggoth2588

Spicy Take: The DS Legend of Zelda games are unplayably Duke Nukem Forever is the best game to come out of The Wii U still has better exclusives than the PS4 and Death Stranding would actually be good without enemy

 
taterchimp

Hot Take: Untitled Goose Game is a meh game that is more fun to watch and describe than it is to play, but you should still buy it to support the creativity the devs had to make it

 
GoofierBrute

Spicy take lighting round: Star Fox Zero is the second best Star Fox game, Color Splash is good, Yakuza is better than Shenmue, DKC 2 is the best DKC game, Fates are pretty good games, and the Uncharted games arent the greatest thing

 
Dere

Spicy take for Majoras Mask is Not a top 5 Zelda game for Twilight Princess is however better than Majoras Mask and a top 5 Zelda game
