    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    Several big announcements yesterday.

    1. Let's Go Pikachu / Let's Go Eevee (Switch)

    Not the core series, but based on pokemon yellow. Has first 151 pokemon, multiplayer, and lets you bring over pokemon from Pokemon Go

    2. Fallout 76

    New fallout, no details yet. Although if you think 76 means 1776, it'll be an east coast city.

    The new Acer is pretty beefy (Intel Core i7 7th gen 2.8 GHz, GeForce GTX 1070, 16 GB RAM) but I understand that the game is so crappily optimized that it might not matter. (Apparently they ported it assuming 3.2 GHz, the clock speed of the Xbox 360, and any deviation from this number in either direction including across multiple cores causes it to crap the bed.)

    The mod is called Gentlemen of the Row, BTW.
    I never played it. Bought it packaged with the others because it was like $2.

    Ive read the same things you did, including the mods.

    Supposedly there's a giant community mod that (somewhat) fixes it and adds a ton of new stuff (the flaming chainsaw launcher and tactical nuke flamingo launcher are cute.)

    Probably wait for a Steam sale.

    Got my laptop up and running and am paying my tribute to Gaben.

    Rebought a bunch of tables on Pinball Arcade because they had a licensing snafu with Bally/Williams and all those tables will not be available after June 30.

    Also rebought Binding of Isaac because I wanted the Antibirth add-on.

    Cuphead and Fire Pro Wrestling World are probably next.

    I feel like gaming is going through what baseball and cycling went through. They're finding out every last god**** one of them were cheats.

    For $30 will I somewhat enjoy it or save my money?
    This years was developed internally by mlbam. They wanted to make it better than previous ones. So this may actually be one worth getting.
