My thoughts - not wishes - based on what's likely:

Operation Flashpoint, because there are ways to fit it into the current mutliplayer/microtransaction market.

Command & Conquer, as they just 'refreshed' the series in peoples' minds with a remaster (although a strategy game doesn't seem likely.)

My #1 bet:

EA owns System Shock. A live-action System Shock show was just announced last month. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/system-shock-tv-show-in-the-works/1100-6497025/

A new system shock has been in the works for a while now https://otherside-e.com/wp/games/system-shock-3/

Surprised it took this long for her to blow town. Blizzard is done and all that's left is putting up the tombstone.

Yeah, because sex scandals and bad HR management has brought down Billion dollar companies before. I'm sure that all the millions of idiotic manchildren will all refuse to buy Diablo4 and Overwatch 2 as a result of this. /s

Yeah sucks. I hate to support a terrible company but I want Diablo 4! lol. What to do? Perhaps I can pray that it sucks and gets terrible reviews. Then save myself from having to give Blizzard another dollar. On that note however, I am part of the problem. I did purchase Diablo 2 Resurrected and have been having a blast with it. Perhaps I can just say, I'm supporting the memory of Blizzard North?

If you are going to avoid every company where these kind of things happen, you are not going to buy much anymore (and I'm not just talking about games either)

Dear Lord please do not let this be a project that turns another FPS game into platformer garbage like DOOM Eternal.

I've played many platformers over the years, and none of them involved shooting thousands of demons from a first-person view...

Yeah I never particularly understood this complaint. The originals emphasized fast and dynamic maneuvering in a 2d plane as a combat tactic; the new ones emphasize fast and dynamic maneuvering in a 3d environment as a combat tactic. Since dynamic 3d maneuvering is a core mechanic, it stands to reason that you would have some maneuvering based challenges to pace the combat and exploration. The “platforming” isn’t even hard or punitive (I think I had like 3 platforming deaths in my run through the game); it’s just there to add some variety.

Good for you, I spend tons of time retrying some of the jumpcrap after falling down each and every time, granted it usually did not result in death, it just put me back where I was.

At one point I went to check on youtube to see if I was doing a certain part wrong as for the life of me I could not get trough it, I was right, but still always seemed to come up short from where I had to be. I do not play first person shooters for this kind of platform crap.

I stand by my statement that while DOOM Eternal might not be a bad game, it is a terrible DOOM game and should have been released under a different IP.

Seriously, did their main programmers just leave the company? This is where it is at, they can barely patch shit on this game and modder's are out producing them. That's why they aren't saying anything, because they are stuck.

This is about as fast of a fall a game company can have and to think if they didn't hoodwink the pre-orders, they'd possibly be belly up GOG probably sold.

Covid is a delay, but other companies have navigated that to an acceptable realm, these guys are stuck on something.

EDIT: I will say 2022 is right around the corner. We'll see. I have zero expectations, but that's not new.

They hired some of those modders so it should be all fine very soon :p

The only thing I'm hearing about this game is about the microstutter.
Same issue that was never fixed in Dishonored 2.
The only relief is frame limiting to 60fps... but it has to be from nvidia control panel, not in-game settings.
And even that doesn't fix it completely.

I can't say I experienced that in Dishonored 2... though with that said, I have this weird thing that occurs even in the stand alone that happened with D2 where the initial loading bar, sometimes it just sits there for awhile for no rhyme or reason. Other times I fire up the game, it zips right through it like nothing. I have no idea what causes that to occur only sometimes... I don't have anything ever running in background so it can't be something taking resources. It also appears to only be with these games.

Could just be the game recompiling shaders after you install new drivers hence why it's only now and then.

I simply cannot get into this game. This from someone who put 150 hours into The Witcher 3 and the same into Skyrim, Morrowind, Xenoblade 1 and Xenoblade 2, Fallout 4, and a bunch of other RPGs. I just can't get more than 5 hours in without quitting.

I think that's part of the problem there, CP2077 isn't really a RPG. It's more a GTA-esque sandbox with some RPG elements and a story.

If that kind of game isn't your thing, nothing you can do about it.

Yet I finished CP2077 and barely made it 3 hours into GTAV (or any other GTA for that matter).

But it is fine not to like a game, there are plenty others around to play.

I played it for a bit, looks a bit better, but did not like the game back then, still don't like it now, D3 is a much better game.

Also ultrawide support my ***, it's got 2 black sidebars that look like fog of war.

Its not about what 3DRealms does nowadays. It all about the entire IP catalogue of 3DRealms. THQ Nordic has made a little fortune from buying old, then very popular franchises, spicing them up, even making new content for them.

They already sold of shadow warrior and duke nukem, not sure there is anything left.

While I do not disagree, them stupids keeping the rest of us out of our hobby or parts of it.

They should tie the device to ones account so it can not be sold (possibly limited in time). And make sure those accounts they are tied to are not new ones with nothing tied to them.

Witcher 3 was a yawn fest combat wise but at least had great writing / side-quests. This game was such a step back in so many ways.

Either way, no matter what you expected it did not deliver based on trailers and hype.

Agreed...after I looked at those "demo/trailers" I didn't expect enough from this game to be interested in picking it up. For a 2015 release, the Witcher 3's graphics were excellent, I thought. With a nice texture mod or two in place, the game still looks good five years later. I think what saved the Witcher 3 in comparison with Punk was the decision to go with the PC first and then later do versions for the consoles--it allowed them to concentrate on the PC platform exclusively--as CDPR had done with the two preceding (successful) Witcher games as well. Trying to do PS4, PS5, and the two new xBoxen & the PC simultaneously really got them all screwed up, imo, and the resulting game looked it and played screwed up in every respect. Still, my biggest turn off with Punk was the content--you couldn't pay me to live in Night City--no way...;) I really hope CDPR is going to do a Witcher 4 game--somehow, though, I feel like it's not going to happen. Hope I'm wrong!


They already confirmed they are doing another witcher game, just not with Geralt.

Maybe not that small but defo hard to find (at MSRP) some etailer advised me today they get 600 PS5 soon they will sell via lottery, they have around 300.000 on their notify me list so yeah makes sence to sell on previous gen consoles as at the current fabrication rate it will take years to satisfy demand on the current gen consoles.

I got a question for him, You going to sell some Xboxes b4 they become obsolete? They are rarer then RTX cards, so to say I have not seen one on sale.

One of the stores that took preorders over here has fulfilled preorders made B4 mid september last year.

For once they have the better hardware and you can't buy it even if you wanted too.
