Reckon it’ll cap out at five lanes (the Darkest Dungeon card game?) before the next massive Innovation arrives: one lane. Back to the genre roots. A classic reboot.


#2502

That seems to be the way of things. I’m a bit disappointed we don’t live in the universe where Gillette released a 15 razor monstrosity though, and I’ll be sad when no one says, “fuck it, we’re going 21 lanes. 500 card decks, and each card has 16 different simultaneous effects. 8 player games. Every game lasts 90 minutes and no one has a damn clue if they’re winning or not until it’s over.”


#2503

21 card lanes could be the key. What’s the next lot going to do, 22 lanes? They’d look like idiots.

Can this be real? It looks absolutely terrifying.


#2506

I think it’s a photoshop. These are even more horrifying (as is the fact they’ll probably be real by 2030).

I suppose a shaver the size of your face is kind of efficient when you think about it.


#2508

Let’s face it - this DOTA card game nonsense is just Valve’s way of getting back at Blizzard for ripping off TF2.
That and they hate us all.


#2509

Wow. Valve totally misread their audience, if the die hard Dota fans audibly sign when they announce a dota card game it’s off to a catastrophic start.


#2510

Fuck Dota and fuck card games that aren’t Gwent. Make HL3 already you pieces of human garbage


#2511

“announcing Half Life 3… the top down strategy game!”


#2512

You’re saying that to someone with 250 hours clocked on XCom 2.


#2513

i mean i’d personally finance a Total Annihilation sequel


#2514

And that clip’s from TI17, so not even DOTA fans give a shit.
That or they were hoping for some actual footage of the game or something.


#2515

it’s a fun and charming game but that’s an insane claim.


#2516

maybe top ten though I could see that.

Anyway in my opinion for what it’s worth(so you know whether I’m a dork or not):

  1. Super Mario World
  2. Super Mario Galaxy 2
  3. Rayman Legends
  4. Mario 3
  5. Super Mario Galaxy

haven’t played the donkey kong ones, I don’t really like the aesthetic or characters but I hear they are great so they might make the top 5 I suppose.


#2517

Super Mario World is comfortably the best platformer for me, plays looks and sounds amazing, hardly seems like it could have come from the same era as Sonic.


#2518

actually I might swap Galaxy 1 out for N/N+/N++ (all three are basically the same game).

ape escape?
