Spicy Take: The Byleth reveal was a successful reveal because I just bought Three I probably wouldnt have if Byleth wasnt in

Am I doin this right?

 
Gamemaniac3434

Spicy takes then? Sure why Outer worlds ranges from ok to good but it isnt great, Okami is just ok, Titanfall 2 and DOOM 2016 are the best shooters of 2016, DS3 is better as an overall game than Bloodborne, Fallout 3 is better than NV, HZD is boring

Heres that fucking Switch accessories reviewsplooza I talked some about a couple days She is done! (BUMP: Fixed the thumbnail! Give me your trash opinions about the video!)

 
Hypno

Hot take: be bold and proud of your ill informed trash opinions, dont feel the need to hide them until the time is Its okay to be

 
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

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