New Games & Game News 2023

“What we need is a completely new forum every year. Start from zero, mandatory name and avatar changes.” billy

A new year's continuation of the prior [new games chat](http://forums.insertcredit.com/d/227-archived-2022-new-games-chat) and [news discussion thread](http://forums.insertcredit.com/d/1417-archived-2022-the-insert-credit-neighborhood-mcdonalds/901) from 2022.

A thread in which to discuss various happenings within videogames that doesn’t have an otherwise relevant thread, in the style of old timers who go to the same Robin's Donuts every morning to piss and moan about the news with their contemporaries in cantankerousness.

Go get your Bismarck, silently resent how terrible the coffee is at Tim Horton's as you buy your equally terrible coffee, post an article (or not if you’d rather explain in your own words), and get a discussion going.

**Hello fellow Insert Credit forum user.** Billy here. I did not write the above. In a clear case of ‘[be careful what you wish for](https://forums.insertcredit.com/d/1060-im-probably-wrong-but-i-dont-care-the-lazy-disinfo-thread/752)’, my name and likeness have been used against my wishes to promote some bullshit new thread. I have no interest in endorsing the consumption of any new games in 2023. If you do wish to play and/or write about any new games, please do so in 2022 or 2024.

That said, I will not be maliciously editing the title of this thread until my legal team have fully explored all options.

@“Syzygy”#279 I can no longer edit in the McDonald‘s thread, so I’m not able to do my due archive linking diligence.

Also just in case it‘s less possible to figure this out via Google than I think, a Bismarck is what they call a Royale with ch a Boston Cream doughnut at Robin’s Donuts, for some reason

What’s up everyone, it’s ya middle-aged dude Antillese/DJ Tent Mode back at it again with another one, let’s get into it!

Had a new years brunch with a buncha friends and while we drank French 75s I set up the arcade cabinet for the kids with, look, they were already on it already. Biggest hits were _Harmful Park_, _In the Hunt,_ _Puzzle Bobble 4_ and Digital Eclipse’s Snow/Volleyball game.

please see op for official statement

don‘t know what’s going on here but I hope everyone is ok

So we‘re in a combination Robin’s Doughnut‘s-something, but the question is, “What is that something?” Are we in a combination Billy-Robin’s Doughnuts…or is it something else?

@“yeso”#p98993 I am being treated well and have the utmost admiration for the 2023 New Games thread :north_korea:

Games I am the most “excited” about playing in 2023 even though I’m starting a night school grad program and will have less time to play games:

  • - Pressing F because I can’t play something because I have homework
  • - _Street Fighter VI_: the one with the big cast like Celes and Gogo and uh… did I say Umaru?
  • - _FFXVI_ at the end of the year when I get it for $40?
  • - I’m more excited about _Remake 2_ TBH
  • - Buncha _Rumbleverse_
  • So excited for FFXVI that I'm slowly convincing my wife that the house needs a PS5.

    This year I hope for either

  • - the PS5 slim to show up because I don't want that eyesore in my home as currently designed
  • - one of my friends getting a PS5 and letting me play FFXVI on it lol
  • @Gaagaagiins imo “fast fresh and friendly” would be right at home on your user profile.

    @“connrrr”#p99003 PS5 slim to show up because I don’t want that eyesore in my home as currently designed

    i don't mind the ugly design so much as just how flippin huge the thing is. damn thing is too big! i sort of prefer the scifi look of the ps5 over the unbranded car battery look of the current xbox series though.

    I was raised on Robin's Donuts, and I remember a time when the first Tims's Hortons opening in town was an event, so this makes sense...

    Also I love that @Syzygy transported this thread to an alternate dimension wherein Robin's Donuts did not cow to American imperialism wrt spelling and preserved the correct spelling of doughnut in the name of the store, but, it does mean that both words in the name have the same number of letters, so maybe it's for the best.

    I would hold it against Robin's Donuts for it, however:

    You know, I was about to head over the lazy disinfo thread to claim that donuts are the rings of fried dough whereas doughnuts are nut-shaped balls of dough (what Americans call "donut holes"), but I decided to visit Etymonline right before that, and uh...

    @“rootfifthoctave”#p99065 I like the clean boxy (but not boxy like a muscle car boxy) look of newer xboxes but I can tell people are going to harbour a lot of nostalgia for the maximalist days.

    @"Gaagaagiins"#p99073 lmao I forgot about the sigs!!!!!

    Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 has a release date!… for its release date. On Janurary 26th they will say when the game comes out.

    @“Funbil”#p99251 this made me imagine a game company continuously announcing big news regarding a game, for the announcement to be that they'll announce something else big, eventually silently releasing the game while still doing the big announcements.
