I will definitely concede that my appreciation for the X art style is based on nostalgia and being 7 years old and thinking he looked so awesome and badass once you got all the upgrades. And don’t get me started on zero with his pony tail and red armor. So awesome to my 7 year old brain.

I didn't really play X until I was in my 20's, so I'm not nostalgic, and I love the game to death. To each their own, though.

Jeff Kaplan has been sat in front of a Yule Log for about 3-4 hours. They're livestreaming it. I love Overwatch.

Interesting article about Civ VI’s inclusion of First Nations peoples, which on its own is an honorable thing to do, except that they don’t fit into a game where the goal is to expand, compete, and eventually dominate the world in one form or another.

Yeessssssssss!  Been waiting a long time for this announcement. Really enjoyed this one back when it came out. Never actually beat it I don’t think, for one reason or another, so I’m excited to give it another go on PC.

I thought they already confirmed that for pc, didn’t they?  It’s just going to take a little longer to port

I reiterate your YESSSSSS! Even though I played through the original release on the PS2, I'll be happy to buy this game again, what with all the improvements.

Looking forward to FF XV as well.

When FFXII was about to come out, it was the most excited I have ever been. I would lose sleep thinking about that game. Must have been in highschool at the time. I was so excited and impatient that I decided to hack my PS2 so I could play the leaked version like a week or two early. I had to order this plastic hook online that you would slide under the disc tray then fish around to pull a lever that would open it again so you could insert another hack CD. Waiting for that piece of plastic to come in the mail was excruciating. And I had no idea when it would come because it was sent over usps before they started doing online tracking. 

It was the most hyped I had ever been for a game, and unlike all the previous FF games, it’s the only one I’ve played only once. So glad that it’s coming to PC.

Oh, Nintendo, you mad geniuses.

There's been a lot of speculation about this announcement, but I'm pretty sure nobody had "papercraft Switch peripherals." A bunch of people are going to be underwhelmed, but they have my attention.

The people who are underwhelmed are wrong.  If this works and isn't janky, I'd argue it's not just an innovation in gaming but an innovation in toys and... well, tool-making maybe.  OK, I know that might be overselling it, but this seems like a good innovation to begin with and the kind that really smart creative types can do stuff with that isn't just innovative, but could do amazing things outside the realm of games.
