Dude...Nintendo's lack of a new F-Zero is the sole reason why I haven't bought a Nintendo product since the Gamecube. I curse Nintendo every time they announce new games, and a new F-Zero isn't amongst them.

Tim Rogers is the only thing that makes Kotaku worthwhile

Jesus major hipster alert!!! ermmm yeah well its a JRPG from the nineties you would never have heard of it, hmmm dude what about eukalele the fuck is it cool to be obscure about games now I can think of hundreds upon hundreds of much better games that need a comeback.. is it not trendy enough maaaaaaaaannn, how about eternal darkness, JRPG how about alundra, burnout, deathtrap, dungeon, alan wake criminally underrated, la noire enough criinally underrated game but no its the obscure gay ass indie JRPG and so out their games that these hipsters are on acid to play and enjoy them.

I was saying the same thing all month: where the heck is a new F-ZERO? I'd like to see a new Jet Force Gemini, never got to finish it. Nor Conker's Bad Fur Day.

Oh good, there's Tim. I hadn't seen him in a while...I was starting to worry

To what Tim said about Yooka-Laylee: 100% YES!!! Unlike Tim, I love Banjo-Kazooie and Yooka-Laylee, but that's irrelevant to his point. The people -- not the name of what they made -- is what matters. Shoot, if you're open-minded, there's an argument that Yooka and Laylee are better characters than Banjo and Kazooie, but that's also irrelevant to his point. The game matters -- not the name! (and obviously the same thing goes for any game like Bloodstained... I just hadn't gotten that far in the vid before commenting).

Really like Tim's thoughts that games can come back in spirit if not in form. I think we tend to get attached to the name of things too much and that makes us pine for that specific iteration. I've been wanting a new Dark Cloud game for a while but then I played the latest Ni No Kuni and felt like that was what Level-5 wanted to do with those concepts now.

Tim Rogers - his voice and mannerisms kinda creep me out. Still, I could go for a new F-Zero. Haven't played one since the original came out way back when.
Ban Kotako from Gaming For Life!

Yay more Timmmaaayyyyy!. Need daily Tim videos and weekly streams with Tim and Bennett Foddy. You're the best Tim - I've always enjoyed your writing and your command of the English language, as well as like 6 other languages you glorious polyglot.

Interstate 76 and Twisted Metal for sure. PS - Why do Kotaku videos have so few views? They're always amazing!
suketodara (4 months ago)
Some franchises people want them back for story, so they need to be the same IP and if possible the same scriptwriters. In those cases you beter be a fanfict fan.
ZodeakUrganomix (4 months ago)
Why don't From Software bring back Dark Souls with a Dark Souls 4? Also, Jedi Knight/Academy games were fucking amazing

Metal Slug. Backbone Entertainment did concept work on a HD port/emulation but never went beyond that.

Nice job on only reporting one side of the story, no wonder why people call you take news. Good journalism guys

Interstate 76 -2! Not that 80s version which was kinda a big flop, just felt wrong somehow and didn't appear to have engine and general car upgrade/swapout options which i76 did if I remember correctly.

Twisted metal, ssx tricky, onimusha, jet grind radio, the warriors and f-zero

Half-life3 confirmed.

Off the top of my head I want to see Prince of Persia, Portal and Silent Hill make a comeback. Great franchises with their fair share of ups and downs (excluding Portal). Perhaps start with remakes in the vein of SoTC and RE2. Or, in the case of Portal, pick up where we left off. I think Portal's got a better chance than Half-Life. Also... Tim, get a haircut. Or at least comb your hair, son.

aceassn716 (4 months ago)
Agree so much about F-Zero! Would buy a switch for an online F-Zero with the quickness.. Streets of Rage 4, Body Harvest, Mega Man Legends 3, Syphon 4ilter, The Getaway 3, Onimusha, Tenchu, Deathrow (action sports game on original xbox) Crimson Skies, Mech Assault 3, Eternal Darkness 2, Brute Force 2, more sports arcade games: Nhl Hitz, Nba Jam/street, Nfl 2k comeback/street, Mlb Bigs/Slugfest, Fifa street.. would love to see Def Jam Fight for NY get HD remaster.
David Murphy (4 months ago)
Socom. Be true to the originals, don't focus on respawns and xp.. keep it skill based. Brave Fencer Musashi. Dino Crisis. Future Cop LAPD. Daytona racing. Panzer Dragoon.

the other week I was thinking about Jade Cocoon. I'd love a modern Jade Cocoon on PC. It was like Mononoke and Pokemon and Monster Rancher had a baby and I played the ever loving shit out of it when I was 13 years old

I miss Prince of Persia, but there are plenty of action/climby/search catacombs type of games so,... whatever. The problem w/old games is that too many of them were geared towards kids/teens & are just too cute for me now (except ZELDA). Knack fills that niche. Spiro looks amazing and I think it will do well when it comes out. Ratchet and Clack: simply beautiful. I’m just not into kid games much anymore. But then,I bought the Genesis when it came out for Sonic: I’m old :-)

How much time are you spending at 7-11 waiting for slurpees?
nauthizzz (4 months ago)
Maybe there's a gourmet hipster 7-11 in new york where you don't get your own slurpee, but instead place an order and wait while a professionally trained slurpee barista mixes you the perfect slushy concoction.
kristopher irizarry (4 months ago)
Brandon Meador I was thinking the exact same thing!😅...free slurpee day maybe (today is 7/11)?

Unreal Tournament, or make the ASMD Shock Rifle a limited time weapon in Fortnite Battle Royale.
Breast Username (4 months ago)
They are making a new Unreal Tournament, infact it's in Alpha and you can play it now.

Twisted Metal won't comeback. They abandoned it after their POS PS3 release which was DOA, since the creator said they wouldn't be supporting it after launch.
Steel27Sentinel97Z (4 months ago)
Mercenaries and the saboteur needs to come back. Plus having a good team giving them confidence brings good games, I would like to become a member of that team and share my ideas in a group of friendly people.
