  • Hype! They should've shown this at the big showcase.
  • While I am playing and enjoying Streets of Rage 4, this looks a little too hectic and "Saturday morning cartoon" for my liking. Wait, Saturday morning cartoons aren't a thing anymore. Damn I'm old. And where was this trailer last week, Microsoft!
  • Game Pass is the best thing to happen to Xbox since the original Halo. Can't believe we get all these amazing games for a low monthly price!!!
  • Been really looking forward to this... I really hope this doesn't end up like the Turtles in Time remake.
  • Looks a lot better than it did the last time I saw it about a year or so ago. Looking forward to playing it.
