Hard to get excited for anything Microsoft is doing/planning.

Yes, yes. I know. This is blues. M$ is evil, blah blah.
Well they might be evil not sure, but I just can't recall a single thing they have done for PC gaming that was so amazeballs that make me all excited and gitty about their plans for gaming

A year after release, I'm officially addicted to Stellaris. Playing as a Fanatic Purifier who can't engage in diplomacy definitely keeps things challenging. I'd recommend trying it if you already own the game but maybe thought it was too slow/boring.
Hopefully the DLC will go on sale at the Summer sale so I can grab them. I'd like to get Utopia.

I am hearing quite a bit of praise for Prey, I guess I'll have to pick that up at some point when it gets sufficiently discounted. That probably won't be during this summer sale though.

It was on sale yesterday as part of GMG anniversary sale for $29CDN plus an additional 20% off
Probably around $15~$20US?

Dungeon Keeper never really did it for me - though I did like Evil Genius. This doesn't really look like my bag, baby, but the price is right so why not.

You don't like Dungeon Keeper!?!? Unforgivable sin. Blue, ban Cutter for life.

Of all his nonsense over the years, this is by far the most damning evidence.

You can eat babies and vote Trump, but this is to much.

It was pure cutter because he liked the price. Maybe a temp ban is in order.

Blood and gore DLC incoming.
Seriously I know why they're doing it (ESRB rating) just seems ridiculous to pay for that DLC
With that said I did pay for it because a Warhammer game just isn't warhammer without all the gore and blood

I don't know why you guys are concerned. If anyone people like that guy with the 15 grand investment should be concerned.

We could have had 10 indy space sims for the cash that Roberts took in, or an AAA Tie Fighter 2 with proper Lucasarts production values.

I give a shit because this is my favorite genre in gaming, and if this thing never sees the light of day it will result in a whole lot of disgruntled people who will never Kickstart another space sim again. I don't know if an AAA publisher will even attempt one while this is in "development".
I think if this doesn't get made it will have the exact opposite effect of what you are describing.
Publishers will be like, holy crap Christ Robert was able to preach up so much money for promises? Shit we can do better than that.

Again I understand where you are coming from but as long as those with large investments in this project keep being apologestic with Roberts and noone holds him to any sort of timeline to deliver something, there isn't much you and I can do but hope this will see a light of day.

However after a while all that excitement wears off and I just simply do not care much for it anymore until I see something that can remotely be called a game. Specifically SQ42. I really don't give a flying shit about this MMO crap Roberts is building

Someone tell me why they wouldn't want better
It's not that. It's just these mid cycle refreshes do not offer the same benefit as a whole new console design like going from 360 to one
Most console gamers aren't like PC gamers that has to live on the bleeding edge. Heck even PC gamers will consider a graphics card upgrade if it only gives you marginal improvements.

Again if you do not have the One or PS4 this is a good time to get the newest model but you are still playing the same games people with the original consoles play just at 60fps vs 30fps or something which for the most part isn't important for console gamers. At least in my experience none of my console friends really care much about that.
What they care about is the convenient of just put the disc into the console and the game runs on their tv without fiddling around with drivers and compatibility issues that the PC was suffering from

I don't think console gamers in particular get all excited about playing their games in 60fps vs 30fps for the small investment of $500
Didn't the PS4 Pro had some rocky start in it's life too where games were running shittier on the PRO than on the regular PS4?
I seem to recall something about that.

Anywho, we'll see how the hype train goes after E3

The 4K TV install base and 4k game optimization is not really where it should be to even consider it a selling point imo. If those new consoles can even run the games in 4K, I didn't really look into the tech specs tbh because I don't really care all that much about new consoles.

To be honest it seems like this mid-cycle upgrade seems to be the point you want to wait for. Buying a PS4 Pro or the upgraded xbox now if you don't have this generation's hardware is a win.

If Microsoft and Sony think they're going to bang us for 500 bucks every two years like Apple they're sorely mistaken. My patience for yearly or two year hardware refreshes is almost entirely exhausted by my cell phone. It's the same reason why tablet sales are flat and/or shrinking.
Oh totally if you do not have a console but thinking about getting one, these are great offerings, assuming games will take some meaningful advantage of the added hardware.

Still waiting on this thing to hit $20 at least before I even consider buying it.
The base game is currently $12US on Humble, $20 for everything will be a little while longer.

Probably around the time Stellaris 2 gets announced.

No it's not. It's $40US on HB atm.

Stellaris for $12
