Oooh! I want the SaGa Collection. Final Fantasy Legend once got me through our annual family trip from Denver to Wichita, KS. It's probably the least scenic drive ever, so I took a whole bunch of batteries and bought Final Fantasy Legend with my allowance. It's not the best RPG ever made, but I have fond memories.

I've got to start a petition for the governor that's goal is to change the state motto to "I hope you like brown!" because that's all that exists between CO and the Flint Hills.

I'm kinda curious about the extra features in the FF trio.

Oooh! New Sam & Max! And it's.. a VR game? Thanks, 2020!

https://www.polygon.com/2020/8/27/21404465/sam-and-max-vr-game-announcement-release-date-price

I don't know that the game will be BAD, but I do know that I don't have a VR headset.

Cool!  I’ll let you know if it’s worth spending a bunch of money on a VR headset. (Probably not. But hopefully it’s fun.)

Gamescom is doing their yearly event.


*CoD Black Ops: Cold War. And I am reminded to shut off Twitch chat. Al Haig is in the game! So is President Reagan, who's in Wasteland 3 as well. Busy week for the President.
*Unknown9 - Modern day supernatural game set in India
*Doom: Eternal- The Ancient Gods 10/20/20
*BioWare talks a bit about Dragon's Age
*Christopher Lloyd shows up as Doc Brown to promote, er, Surgeon Simulator 2. Um, yeah. That's not random.
*Walking Dead Bridge Simulator- Um. ...the hell?
*Sam and Max!!!!! And nothing else other than they're in something. Heck, even if they're in Fortnite, I'm down with it.
And the winner of best Switch Game is Little Nightmares 2. Er, what exactly is the criteria for that award?
*WoW Shadowlands. WoW players already know. Non players don't care. Nice lore heavy short though. Oh- Launch date- 10/27
*Warhammer: StormGround. Next year and part of the Sigmar line
*Crash Bandicoot 4
*Outriders
*Hyperscape
*Captain Tsuba- It's soccer! It's anime!
*Necromunda Underhive Wars- More Warhammer, 40k this time. Um, 3 way team combat? I think? Comes out in about 2 weeks.
*Teardown* blow up a city to perform a heist. Looks kinda neat
*Little Nightmares 2
*Star Wars Squadrons
There's a Star Wars themed Sims expansion. Kinda neat. Sep 8
*12 Minutes- a game about a time loop.Just added some very big name voice talent. Dafoe. Daisy Ridley. James Maclevoy.
*Godsfall
*Turn based multiplayer strategy shooter. Lemnis Gate. Um. Sure
*Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga- all nine movies. No Lumpy, no sale.
*Age of Empires 3 Remastered. A couple of new civs and new modes. Oct 15
Best XBox game- Tell Me Why. Again, what is the criteria here?
*Chorvus- space combat game
*Fall Guys Season 2 -New rounds! New costumes! Fantasy theme! Wizard hats! More team stuff!
*Wasteland 3! Out tomorrow!
*Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond- It's VR?
*Battle Royale game where you play a wizard. Looks kinda neat. Spellbreak Sep 3
*Turrican. Apparently this was big in Europe.
Oh, now the best Playstation game is Cyberpunk. Which, of course, is not out yet. Great work, folks!
*Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart. And Geoff asks if the female character is named Abby. Ouch.


And done.

Still going to play it, and I’m pretty sure I can look past it... but I had forgotten that Sam and Max are bumbling freelance police officers that are quick to violence. Yeah... not exactly my first choice as a topic for comedy right now.
