Mysteriously cancelled? Well, I'd imagine any cancellation is due to Covid 19.

Not weak just obvious.
Do you really think that blue does not know the reason or finds it mysterious after reporting on multiple cancelations and delays in this field.
Look up satire, humor and Poe’s Law. It will help you with understanding the funny bone in almost every American.

What I'm trying to say is it's obvious it's a joke (Devolver loves them), but it's not obvious it's a Covid-related joke. Plus, it wasn't Blue that wrote the blurb in yellow, it was Devolver making the joke, not him. My reading comprehension isn't that bad.

Pretty impressive for a PS2 game. Why the fuck didn't they do Persona 5?

Golden wasn't on the PS2. But yeah, the original was, so you're half right, sort of.

As for why not P5, because it'd probably cut into their PS4 sales. Royal just came out, and they won't release the non-royal edition on PC (wouldn't make sense), so I highly doubt they'd step on their console sales, or potential console sales. Or they just didn't want to risk it and thought maybe no one would buy a Persona game on PC, so they threw out a quick port of P4Golden just to test the waters.

The real question is why not bring out Digital Devil Saga or Nocturne, which are *infinitely* better than any Persona game and much more beloved by the hardcore RPG community as well as being far away from any timed exclusivity deal, having come out in the mid 2000s.

Not a good deal considering you can get Origin Access for $30 a year.

Considering UPlay is Ubisoft's games, and Origin is EA's games, I'm not sure how that comparison works. Are you saying EA's subscription service offers more?

Steam now carries all of the EA games that EA pulled from their store, as well as all the Ubi games. So I don't see a reason to use either Origin or Uplay.

Souls-like - the thing that happened after MOBA was the thing.
No, thanks. I do understand that people like Dark Souls with its superdifficult fights, but when I come home from work and am allowed to play a game for an hour or two (she is cruel, isn't she? ), I need something to calm down and have some - in comparison to work - easy success. If I want to stress myself, I just have to go back to work.
Thankfully there are also enough games for people like me.

I'm glad someone else understands this. I like them too, and even beat the first Dark Souls (And Demon's Souls on PS3) but at 44, I don't get much chance to game and when I do, I like it to be relaxing and comforting. Something I can tune out the world in and play while taking sips of coffee. Silly, I know.

Had one guy say I "wasn't a real gamer" because I refused to buy Sekiro for that reason. Nevermind the fact that I was playing RPGs before he was born or that I played through two Souls games already. The idea of playing another "Die 50 times for 2 hours straight until you find the right pattern to win and then do it again" game doesn't appeal to me.

That's a silly article. The only thing that should make you feel ashamed is if you can't pay your bills due to your video game spending habits. As long as you're doing ok financially, who cares if you bought a few games that will add to your backlog and you were granted some points for it to use on profile fluff?

Gwen Foster, who was part of Global Game Jam's executive committee, announced her decision to step down due to "the board's refusal to make a statement about the global crisis" -- including both Black Lives Matter and the COVID-19 pandemic.

So you can be cancelled for just deciding to mind your business and focus on servicing customers.

I hate how "the young people" all decided that it is the responsibility of every company to be a paragon of virtue and that all companies/organizations/whatever have to virtue signal constantly or risk being "Cancelled".

Exactly what would "making a statement" do anyway? Does putting a black bar on your company's twitter profile pic make the world better? Does linking to an offsite URL where you splash 3 paragraphs up on my screen saying how much you care for the oppressed giving me a better service or better entertainment value? No.

Just stop. Please god stop this insanity.

They already make exceedingly good money and have platinum benefits to boot. How about a fundraiser instead for all the poor "essential" slobs out there making minimum wage or close to it and little or no benefits instead? Or the 10's of million of people out of a job and staring down homelessness and hunger atm?


I'm a frontline healthcare worker myself (A decade in janitorial and maintenance for a large hospital network in the NE), and I do get what you're saying. Maybe a bit rough, but I do agree. I've been doing so well, finances-wise, that I've been buying all the groceries for my family, most of whom are/were out of work and some who had been having trouble filing for unemployment. I think if anything, we should be giving money to the checkout clerks, wal-mart stockers, and food service employees.

Makes sense, since the Tales community was shocked that they didn't show any of the game at the latest festival they held this month. Plus there hasn't been any reveal or pre-order of a collector's edition, which they always do for mainline Tales games.

Sad to hear, because this was my most wanted 2020 game.

Lying about your marital status is grounds for termination? Hope my current employer doesn't realize I'm not actually single and I'm, in fact, separated.

Cheating on your wife shouldn't be grounds for termination either. At least, if you don't work in something that is related to marital issues. Like say, a counselor or something. Working as a game developer has nothing to do with spousal issues. That's ridiculous.

"You could slap your secretary on the ass and she'd find it funny! These days, when you tell a woman that she's gained too much weight for you to date but you'd certainly give her a roll in the hay, she gets offended. When you tell a black man that your grandpappy used to own people like him, he gets angry. Why can't we go back to the good old days when white men could say and do whatever they wanted and everyone else had to laugh or else? We need to go back to that! Make America Great Again. For white people to not have to be polite or respectful, yet everyone else needs to towards us!"

You're buying into the stereotype that it's just a bunch of Archie Bunker types wanting to exercise 1950's white privilege, but there are just as many people of color who earnestly desire that as well.

Back in the 90s the guy ruining our receiving department was a black man who was frequently rubbing up against female employees and complimenting them on their bodies. They complained for years but he was never fired. Only when he retired and they replaced him did that end. The black guy who drove the delivery truck and dropped off our shipments was even worse. He'd call the hispanic workers in the store the "W-word".

One of the problems with folks like you is that you buy into the liberal-driven idea that all non-white people are as pure as the driven snow, but if you ever lived in a ghetto, or worked in a store located in one, you'd know better.

So if it's one v one, I might agree with you. But when multiple people start sharing similar stories, and the dude isn't even refuting, then where there's smoke, there's fire.

Fair enough.

Only reason I played Grimrock.. was because it was the closest I've gotten to Stonekeep.

Stonekeep was fun, but the dungeon levels were a bit repetitive and I never stuck around to finish it. Plus I preferred having a full party, like in EOB. Now the first Lands of Lore? That was good enough to keep my attention all the way through. I still have the CD version on disc somewhere around here. Patrick Stewart voiced the King. Short, a little easy until the end, but a good EOB-clone.

Beat the first two back in highschool (93/94). I really wish they'd make a dungeon crawler like that again. I tried the two Grimrock games, beat them, and liked them, but they had no real story or suspense. The beauty about EOB2, especially, was that there was suspense and mystery and seeing the last boss' 2nd form...that was a big deal then.

I never felt that kind of connection with grimrock.
