Hnnm Lilith and Tannis is bit too old to my taste, Tiny doesn't feel insane enough, but Jack Black as Claptrap is perfect and I think they got the atmosphere down.
Very exciting and interesting. The media powers that be are starting to discover video games as a source of story telling. We've finally had some fun ones and now? we may be due for more.

oh hey something Randy's interested in that's old enough to legally consent for once 🙄
Because what we needed was another "cinematic universe". It's like someone once said "a Pop-Tart would really hit the spot right now" and then got run over by seventeen trucks full of Pop-Tarts.

Oof, less than a third of their revenue was from 3rd party games. And that number dropped from the previous year. In one of the hottest years for gaming yet.

Translation: We're already making bangers season after season in Siege. Why tf would we put effort into making a new game?
Ironic, because Siege started off as shit, and didn't get good until halfway into the game's second year.
'I'm not going to name names, but you see games go through sequels and just completely drop the ball'
A lot of your titles did that, because you keep throwing them on the assembly line.

I was really saddened to hear about the passing of Yoshitaka Murayama. His legacy in the gaming industry, particularly with Suikoden 1-3 and Eiyuuden, is truly remarkable. It's devastating to think that he was so close to completing his latest project before his untimely passing. He'll be greatly missed, and his contributions will continue to inspire gamers for generations to come.
Have you ever thought about trying out some alternative gaming experiences? One option I stumbled upon recently is bingo cash reviews. It's a fun and interactive way to unwind and connect with others.

An article I encountered today that I found interesting about franchises that has not seen a release in at least ten years, despite being considered significant to some degree:

Det var orimligt länge sedan sist (msn.com)

Since it's In Swedish, I'll just copy-and-paste the list:
  • Bioshock
  • Castlevania
  • Crysis
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Duke Nukem
  • Infamous
  • Metroid Prime
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Rayman
  • Splinter Cell
I do consider it cheating to include Metroid Prime since I consider that to be part of the Metroid series where Dread was released 2½ years ago.

Kevin Levine is now what we're there for BioShock and has his own little spiritual successor. No Castlevania because of Konami. There's so many castlevania-style games out there that it really doesn't matter anymore now. Crytek announce the teaser for a new game last year, but nothing yet so far. It has been a decade now since the new Donkey Kong Country. Since retro studios was working on the more recent Metroid game, I can see why. Duke Nukem is never coming back unfortunately. The best you're going to get a spiritual success series or alternative company equivalents. Infamous has not seen a new franchise because there's really nothing left other than rebooting it or doing a re-release. Not to mention Sony still has her heads up their own ass and just want cinematic gaming only. Ninja Gaiden hasn't had a new title because of the third game in that crappie zombie spin off. Katie talked about bringing it back, but I actually want to see something first and not just rely on speculation and then wanting to do it. I want to see actual results. Rayman hasn't had a title in a decade, because Ubisoft are too scared they're not going to milk enough money out of it, and all they want is constant live service barring a few exceptions. The same applies to Splinter Cell.

Please don't fall to the typical open-world formula :(
Terminator Resistance is open world and that turned out okay. Granted, that game played more like the Metro games. If it's from the same people who did Resistance and Robocop, then I see no issue.
