I don't like the esthetics. This won't be a day one buy for me. It reminds me of ELEX -- the weird hybrid of future and past technology -- and my brain just thinks it's dumb

Not at all have I convinced myself that I won't like it, though, but I'll wait for the usual reviewers I trust (Worth a Buy, Skill Up, that's about it).

Play the game, learn why things they are they way they are and what the name means. Great game worth a purchase.

A $150 Diablo bust and a set of wings marks the 20th anniversary? Wow... Maybe they'll do something interesting for the 25th or perhaps Activision is just illustrating that they have lost all connection to their target market? Remember when Blizzard was a company that made games for gamers rather than lootboxes for addicts?

I'm old enough to remember a time when Blizzard released a game, it was an auto-purchase because the chances of it being good were almost guaranteed. Now, they could announce a Diablo II remake and I wouldn't even consider buying it. Even though I've been waiting for "Diablo III" for over 20 years.

I can't imagine even considering buying that Diablo bust. Let me reward Blizzard by giving them $150 for ruining the Diablo franchise! Where's Disney at, I'll buy a Rey "Skywalker" bust next for $1138?

It's 219€ over here, around 250$ if it makes you feel any better

I love this game, I have 219 hours in it so far, I love that you don't need "currency" like in a lot of other building games like sim city etc..

Took me a while and some YouTube vids to better understand some parts of the game, but once I did it felt great to keep expanding and automating stuff.

So I've tried Borderlands 2 several times, and I get 10 hours or so into the story and it never seems to open up and I get stuck in some snowy area. I thought I've heard that at some point it becomes more like an ARPG where you grind for better loot. I've seen people with thousands of hours into it. Is there a different mode or do people just do the storyline over and over?

You have a couple of options, once you finish the game you can play whichever part of it you want at your current lvl and gear or you can start a new game + which is somewhat harder. Exploration in these games is key, you can find tons of easter eggs and loot if you look around a bit.

I had a great time with BL2 according to steam I have 666 hours into it. Currently at 200 hours into BL3.

I just whish there was a middleground between the 2 in regards to legendaries, in BL2 they are pretty rare, in BL3 you stumble over them (to give you an idea I have 400+ legendaries in BL3 atm and maybe 20 in BL2)

BL1 never grabbed me, not even when it was new, it's the worst one imo, pre-sequel while not as good as 2 and 3 is imo still miles better then the first one, I hate the bloody respawns in the first game, sometimes had to clear the same part 2-3 times in a row to get trough it as if you died far into a mission the enemies at the sart would have respawned and you could not clear them fast enough so you basically had to start over.

I have yet to find a rockstar game I like other then Max Payne 3, I tried GTA IV, vice city and V and red dead redemption 2 and usually quit after 1-2 hours, in GTA V after the opening sequence and the first couple of quests the only quest I could find was in an area I could not access so I just said f it and moved on to better games.

Remove the platforming that ruins the game and makes it extremely boring.

This is why this was the first Doom game that I did not buy on day 1 (or in pre-sale). I was never a fan of platformers and struggled with Donkey Kong and others a looong time ago. I have no desire to make this experience again even if I could Donkey Kong in the face with a shotgun this time.

I "preordered" it a couple days b4 launch with the year one DLC pass after playing a good 2 hours this became my 2nd game ever to request a refund on, the first one beeing the remastered version of age of empires 2 which froze ever 5 sec for a couple seconds.

I may eventually end up buying it again for 5€ or something but that's all it is worth to me with their silly mechanics like gun A for enemy type A and gun 2 for enemy such and such, the ammo management, almost makes it like resident evil game on speed, then there are the silly jumping puzzles which imo should not be in a doom game at all.

Betting it will include restrictions on which platform you can release

No doubt all of these games will be permanent EGS exclusives on PC but also available on consoles despite their tyrannical 30% store "tax."

I'm guessing Epic realized that timed exclusives aren't really working out because people just wait until they're on Steam.

And for half the price too re: Boarderlands 3

And concerning the tyrannical 30% store tax on consoles, that's why PC is great, because we aren't locked into any proprietary walled-garden nonsense. We have choice. Which makes the irony all the more hilarious that a lot of PC gamers now believe that more options = bad because they want everything from one store, smells a lot like the would-be consolization of PC. There are Xbox fanbois, Playstation fanbois, and Steam fanbois, and each is worse than the last.

Or maybe we want to choose which store, you know buy from the cheapest one, since the goods are digital there is no quality difference, but of the goods are only sold in one store they can price it however they want as there is no competition which is ofc better for us the customer right? right?

So has Metro Exodus sales exceeded Epic's 'true' sales yet?

There's only 1 thing we know for sure, had they both been released simultaneously, Steam sales would've far surpassed the anti-competitive exclusives store. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it.

Seeing this was the first exclusive, there would not be any anticompetitive store if it went up on both.

Why would I do EA for a single played narrative game?

This.

Few of us on bluesnews are the target EA market for a game like this, but this is just the continued outsourcing of beta testing to the games community.

Did D:OS or D:OS2 have some sort of public beta or EA phase? I can't remember.

I usually avoid EA/beta for pretty much any game, let alone RPGs, but some people seem to love getting in early.

Seeing they were crowdfunded, I can see the use of EA to get the best possible game out there in cooperation with the backers.

This is not crowdfunded though but seeing it worked for them on the other games why not keep doing what works for your company.

Well, at least they weren't stupid enough to launch on Steam at full price (there's a 40% "discount" on this year-old game... how generous...). Though I notice that the full price is listed at $39.99 and I don't remember if that was the full price on release. Either way, I'm not paying anywhere near that much for Epic's sloppy seconds.

I find that exclusivity deals have just saved me money, because I really have no burning desire to play some of these games after waiting (and enough lets-plays and other material has come out to show me that I probably would have wasted my money if I had bought immediately... looking at you Phoenix Point & Julian Gollop). I'd have bought Mechwarrior 5 launch day full price if it had come out on Steam. Now, I'm honestly not sure if I'll even bother when it gets rereleased, there's just too much wrong with it based on the lets-plays I've watched. Oh well, hopefully that "exclusivity money" was enough to make up for my lost sale...

Since it's the first AAA title I'm aware of to have Epic exclusivity expire and I had any interest in, I picked it up on Steam today for $24 US. That's less than half the original price. If enough Steam buyers show up this week, maybe developers will re-think Epic exclusivity.

Nope. The exact opposite will be true. If people still buy even after the year, all that tells publishers is that they can take Epic's money first, then take our money later. The only way they'll rethink exclusivity is if the games that have it don't meet sales expectations, both during and after. Otherwise, you'll just teach them they can slap you around and you'll still come back for more...

except they now get 70% of 24$ iso of 70% of 60$

I have very few Ubi games, played even less, but I do realy like the Division 1 & 2 although end game in 2 is somehwat lacking atm, but they are working on a patch to try and solve this.

Farcy 3 was a big letdown for me, too much cneaking, never tried an ass creed game for the same reason.

Did get anno 1800 on a sale, played it a bit, is decent imo need to put some more time in it, but got frustrated not beeing able to figure out how to vreate trade routes, ui is not userfriedly for this.

I know Unreal, Portal, Half Life and BioShock would be in my list (screw limiting it to a certain time period.)

Going by games I played trough the most my list would be something like (in no particular order)
Borderlands 2
Quantum break
The witcher 3
Rage
Crysis 2
Diablo 3
Doom 2016
Mass effect 2
