I have played the first one a couple of times. It's a great combination exploration/business sim type game, but also one of the most relaxing games I've played in years.

Battle? Effing? Passes? In Conan?

Can we also get blind loot crates for funny hats?

Just remember, before you read them you have to link your brain to a Warner Bros. account.

Seeing the name...

Please, not another souls-like. I get that they're popular, but the entire third person action genre now consists of nothing but, save for shooters. It's almost become a dead genre if you don't enjoy punishing games.

The Rockstar Plan:

1. Release popular game with lots of support and content.
2. Release a second game you hope will be as popular.
3. Do not give it support and content.
4. Act shocked that it, sans content, doesn't become as popular.
5. Go back to supporting the tired old game that makes you more money, while abandoning the game you tried so hard to convince your audience to support.
6. Blame it all on the players.

I have had to deal with Rockstar 'support' a couple of times, btw. It was awful - they were telling me to fix problems by changing settings that they'd never actually implemented into the game. They literally didn't exist.

This is fine. Put it out there, see what happens. Let people vote with their wallets. This will either crash and burn, or it will succeed and be the start of every game being this way.

I am guessing the latter, but hey - I'm not the entire market.

It only has a positive review total because you have to purchase it to review it, and nobody with any sense is going to give these lunatics any money.

I've liked similar games, but it all boils down to whether they do a decent job with the business side of the sim - the museum. Tank Mechanic Simulator did something similar - search them out, restore them, put them in the museum. The museum part was shallow and dull, though. Instead of providing a framework and motivation for the search-and-restore, it was more of a minor side thing. Building some basic business sim elements into it, ala Planet Coaster/Jurassic World Evolution/etc. could really make it fun. Set prices, research upgrades, advertise, hire staff, that sort of thing. Make it light, and use the main gameplay loop to provide the exhibits. Finding that rare skeleton and knowing that it will sit in an irrelevant museum is not exciting. But finding it and knowing it will attract a ton of business and give you the money you need for that new wing - that's more fun.

Perfect World was a royal PITA to deal with. This feels more like an "Everyone hates Comcast" "Now Comcast is XFinity!" style rename.

I don't blame the Russian people, but the truth is that the most likely resolution to the current mess will have to come from within Russia. The population has to be affected by events before they'll be willing to stand up (or before leaders will stand up on their behalf.) Crippling their economy and taking away all of their entertainments will make those people miserable, which sucks. It's not their fault. But it will still provide motivation for them to bring about change.

Russia has a long history of revolution, after all.

I'd be surprised if Zelensky's government lasts through March but I assume they will continue their work under Putin's installed government.

There's no way Russia can keep a country that size with that many people under their thumb. Afghanistan managed to send them packing with a lot less going for them. You know the free world's intelligence and military operators are already there and training people in resistance and sabotage. Russia will have no choice but to either abandon it or nuke it and Putin knows that's the death warrant of Russia if he goes down that road.

Russia can't win, but that doesn't mean that Ukraine will remain a sovereign nation. Ukraine will fall, Russia will be in control. That much is a given. After that, Russia will spend another couple of decades fighting a non-stop insurgency. But Putin's power and ego won't let him back down. He'll shell it into ashes, and then he'll reign over the ruin.

The only way Ukraine remains free is if Putin loses power before it falls, be it through transition, exile, or poison pellet.

They made $2.6B last year. Cheap bastards. No surprise there. Plenty of smaller companies are giving a lot more.

And other companies, larger and smaller, are donating less. Or nothing.

So Ubi - good job. I'd love to see you do more, but good job regardless.

No monopolies, thanks. But not every single company needs their own launcher. If you've only got your own games on your launcher, and you can count those without taking off your shoes, you don't need your own launcher.
