    So... anyone looking forward to MTGA's open beta?

    Direct challenge is a thing now, so this might be a good place to share our friend codes, though some additional time coordination may be necessary for direct challenges. Mine is orlouge82#96079

    Playstation Classic - Announced

    One of my favorite JRPGs. I must have played through it dozens of times. The learning curve was quite steep, though, especially when I was a sophomore in high school when it first came out. American audiences tend to have more difficulty with that much of an open-ended game, though, which explains why it did so much poorer here than in Japan (where it remains among one of the top selling Square products for the PS One).

    Castlevania Season 2 Cometh

    I just had a nergasm from the opening fight scene in episode 7 -- featuring an arranged version of Bloody Tears!!

    I agree, I was REALLY sick of mono red/BR aggro before rotation. Game was largely decided by turn 3 or 4. I can't wait until the next set releases, though, because I almost always want to force Bant colors in my deck, and there's the least support for those colors right now with GRN's dual lands. Although the Selesnya cards I've started using are incredible. Knight of Autumn is incredibly versatile and allows me to stabilize against aggro decks while knocking out early Azcantas against control, and March of the Multitudes just wins games on its own, especially when you start stacking them with Convoke. It's always pretty hilarious how my opponents will bend over backwards to kill my Teferi, only to get run over by 19 1/1 lifelink soldier tokens two turns later.

    Is it just me, or are 90% of the decks Dimir surveil and Boros aggro (with the occasional mono-red burn deck and Jeskai control deck thrown in)? I played against three different players last night in a row all playing the Dimir surveil deck (you know, where they play Disinformation Campaign, then bounce it, play it again, and repeat?). Maybe it's just the flavor of the week right now.

    [GRMRB] [2018] Round 6 - Proto Man Bracket

    Damn, two amazing tracks. Definitely worth the wait!!

    I've been playing the closed beta since January, and I'll definitely be playing the open beta later today, but I won't be dropping any money into it considering WOTC's recent moves giving the middle finger to brick and mortar LGS's. The game is fun, and I hope they make the Singleton format a permanent fixture at some point.

    [GRMRB] [2018] Round 4 & 5

    Ugh, this was a difficult vote. We'll see if I change my mind as the week progresses.

    Mega Man: The Grand Robot Master Remix Battle 2018

    I think at this point we can all assume that DarkeSword has stashed all the musics in a duffel bag and hopped a plane to Monaco.

    Capcom Belt Action Collection

    I lost my shit when I saw Armored Warriors, the pinnacle of all side-scrolling beat-em-up arcade games.

    Mega Man: The Grand Robot Master Remix Battle 2018

    Indeed, Saturn, Neo Geo, and TG16 all had some great games on them. Neo Geo and TG16 couldn't compete with the Nintendo and Sega juggernauts during the early 90's (especially when Neo Geo cost a whopping $650 at the time it was released). Saturn was truly a magnificent system, and its failure is largely attributable to piss poor marketing by Sega. I wish that Sega or some third-party would create a Saturn Classic Edition edition with Panzer Dragoon Saga, NiGHTS, Magic Knight Rayearth, SotN, MM8, MMX3, Shining Force III (all three chapters, not just the first and only one to make it to North America), Guardian Heroes, and, of course, all the Sonics on it. I would pay hundreds of dollars for it, and I would consider it a bargain. The system and its games are that good. As far as the anti-Nintendo drama, only the failure of Neo Geo and TG16 can be attributed to Nintendo to any substantial degree. The Saturn's direct competitor was the PS1.

    Holy shit, I didn't even realize it was the Saturn version, and the fact that it isn't the primary version of the song is criminal. Such an amazing tune, and looking forward to the remixes integrating it!!

    New DuckTales in 2017!

    I agree, they made it a good show on its own while still packing it full of nostalgic references (the Gummi Bears one was hilarious in particular).

    Did anybody catch The Moon theme from the NES game at the end of today's season finale?
