The trailer LOOKS like a complete redo of the 1976 movie. Not that that's a bad thing.

I played these recently. The original Baldur's Gate hasn't aged as well, but Baldur's Gate II and Icewind Dale are still great. I'll pick these up as well.

Butt kicking for goodness!

While I'd heard rumours about Witcher 3 I kinda dismissed them. Assuming they do a decent port, this will be a great pick up for my Switch.

I’m probably in the minority here but I actually thought Afleck did a really good job as both Batman and Bruce Wayne.

I don’t think Afleck was all that buffed before he got the role either.

Mine as well. I had an Atari 800 and an Apple ][e. I had the C compiler for the Apple. I remember compiling a program and then spending 5 minutes swapping disks in the single disk drive, lol.

Oh come on.

I love my Switch. But given the condition of a lot of the last generation ports (Saints Row 3, Assassin's Creed 3) I think there's reason to be wary/skeptical. On the other hand, CDPR doesn't seem to...

I'll be first in line for Dr. Strange 2 and the new Spider-man, but after that...i have no idea who the Eternals are.
