How does Epic get all these odd ball exclusives? lol. Maneater and now this.

Maneater looks funny and I still have it pre-ordered on Steam, but this looks similar in a way. I guess I'm curious as to how Epic figures out which ones to snatch up because they look terrible at times, lol.

lol, the way they are taking down links, you'd think they are protecting classified information here... It's Assassin's Creed with the recent Assassin's Creed game-play. If you thought Odyssey was a reskin of Origins, then Valhalla looks like a reskin of Odyssey. They're all similar, with similar animations and controls, just set in a different time period.

Playing enough Odyssey alone gets stale enough. It's a massive game with a lot to do, but in the end, it's all repetitive stuff to do with nothing all that particularly interesting either. If anything, it's a beautiful looking game, and has some stunning views but gameplay will get stale unless it's your sort of game, you'll just eat it up again.

I'd probably pick up Valhalla on the cheap once it's hits sale price KNOWING I will get bored sooner than later, but at least play enough of it before getting bored to justify the sale price.

I'll admit, since playing a lot of Titan Fall 2 lately where wall running is a huge component, it turns the FPS into more of a platformer that I don't think I need. The levels get tailored to the wall running and they don't feel natural at all. More like arenas. Not sure I need that in a game that is trying to push for some kind of realistic looking future.

I picked up Jedi Fallen Order finally. Got the 5 buck coupon off the Deluxe because it wouldn't apply for the 29.99 version since they don't count sales tax. Sucks. So basically I ended up paying 29.99 anyway with the 5 coupon since Deluxe was 34.99.

Anyway, it's an awesome game so far. Feels a tad like Tomb Raider meets Star Wars. Graphics are awesome, acting is well done, and the story so far is holding up well in the universe. Can't wait to see where it goes.

the new "3080" RTX cards will be out at same time as the game ... with supposed 30% increased RTX processing power ... Best to wait & buy 1 of those .

Still not dropping 400+ bucks for Ray Tracing.

I see the RTX 2060 is down to $340. Not cheap, but not as bad as $400.

We are PC Gamers, no offense to MSI but I don't buy entry level hardware. It's like people who buy stuff at the dollar store and don't understand why it doesn't work as good or survive as long.

MSI does have entry level hardware, but don't let that you fool you. They also have some of the highest out of box clock rates of any card manufacturer in the US. I say in the US because I think Palit graphic cards have the overall fastest speeds but you can't buy them in the US? Weird stuff.

Oh darn, I wonder if this could be the game that convinces me to upgrade my graphics card to an RTX? My 1070ti has been killing it thus far but I only play at 1920by1080. I'm also on an older i7 that was beast when I got it but that was like 5 years ago... I'm certain an i9 would blow it the f**k away.

Uugggh. This has been my favorite build of all time for sure regarding balance. All I've upgraded since I got it was my graphics card from a 970 to 1070. That has given it a second wind. I'm sure I could handle this game with it but obviously not at all effects (Ray Tracing). I'm also not sure how much Ray Tracing should be considered to upgrade because I've seen so many on/off videos and the on effects are hardly noticeable. I'm sure in action it looks amazing, but if you never had it, I'm not sure it's enough to care...

i'd give D4 a shot. I played D3 from open night, took a break and came back when it was polished. Had enough fun to justify the cost so I dont mind.

I had D3 pre-ordered and hated the Auction House aspect but they cleared that up rather quickly following the outrage. I had lots of fun with D3 but trying to go back recently was rough. I'm not sure if the overly colorful graphics made it look outdated or too cartoony but I just wasn't feeling it.

At this point, I have zero Blizzard games installed and you are looking at one of the biggest Blizzard fanbois late 90s, early 2000s. I mean, at that time they could do no wrong. Diablo, Starcraft, Diablo 2, Warcraft 3, WoW. Probably their best timeless hits right there at that moment. I had Warcraft 3 installed for 8 years straight and played it nearly everyday.

I'd say since Diablo 3, they've been on a steady decline in quality and direction. I'm hoping Diablo 4 is awesome and I will most likely pick it up because I've always had a good time in Diablo games, but I'm not going in with high expectations this time around.

Staying far away from any of these links... I am legit unspoiled so far, the trailer aside. And I will keep it that way. Same for Death Stranding...

Same. I honestly do not care what others think of the game when I already have my mind made up. The trailers have given enough to know what we are getting into. An awesome action RPG FPS from the developers of Witcher 3. Sold.

It takes a lot to ever made me get overly excited about a FPS but I'm definitely down for this one.

Honestly, no WOW sales going on and I'm not talking world of warcraft.

Prices aren't much different than when they run solo sales on games throughout the months. A lot of titles in my wishlist surprisingly are not on sale. Then the ones that are do not have much of a decrease on them.

I sometimes wonder if we are hurting ourselves by adding to wishlist. Steam knows we want that game. They want to entice us often to try and get that buy but they don't want to just give it away super cheap either. I feel like if let's say if 85% of the Steam population wish listed the same game, Valve is gonna throw a cheap sale on it to entice and try to get those purchases. Maybe they discount the game 10%. They keep it there for awhile. Then it drops from wishlists or purchases happen and now 50% have it wishlist, they lower the sale amount even more. Finally, a measly 5% of all Steam accounts have that game wish listed, now the game is 90% on sale.

They are using our wishlists against us!!!

It looks good. I can't help but be slightly less hyped just because it's an FPS. I've got so many damn FPS, played so many FPS, it's like, in the end, just how much more can they do to wow? I'm sure they'll be plenty of details and cool things to do but sometimes I wonder if we're reaching the limit of how exciting an FPS can be? I'm not sure.

Call me bitter but I'm hoping for a Witcher 4 next, lol. In all of it's 3rd person glory.

Picked up Titanfalls 2 despite not really caring much about the original and barely playing it. The reviews claim for it to be one of the greatest FPS ever so I said, 10 bucks, why not? So far, pretty good. The bullet impact, weight of the guns, and sound effects are real good. Level design has been pretty good so far but I can't help but feel it's too static. There are like no environmental interactions or physics whatsoever. Still, it's got my attention so far so we'll see how it goes.

I'm not sure if he's doing anything wrong technically. He's not providing any games for it, you need to find those. So basically he made a program that can do the work and give you the result you see but without providing anything licensed from Nintendo if that makes sense.

Kingdom Deliverance sucks. So mad I bought it at nearly 30 bucks. It's crashed so many times in the main starting location that I didn't get to experience the game. It looked like it was going to be fun. The programming must be BAD. I rarely ever crash in any game since I've had my build going on 5 years now. The fact that this one continuously crashed at every attempt I made makes me think it's just BAD.

This is also another reason not to pre-order. With all these delays and CDPR saying that the September delay was the last one. I knew they were lying. If CDPR was willing to delay all the way to September, then they are willing to delay to maybe even 2021. If it finally does get released this year than good. I won't be surprised if CP2077 gets a Jan 2021 release. Either that for companies just like releasing at around christmas time or obvious reasons.

Yup, glad I don't pre-order.

I have several other reasons that I won't pre-order any game.... might be utter crap, might be overly buggy at launch, local store might get it for me (Old reason that doesn't really apply anymore with digital stores), and of course today's example... multiple delays while they hold my money.

That said... most games (95%) aren't even a day 1 launch for me. I like to wait for reviews, usually a few patches after launch, and a good sale before I buy. However there are rare ones that are... Cyberpunk 2077 may be one of the few (Or maybe a closer to a "first week" after some launch stability news).

I don't either. Especially since most have gone digital but if I had to admit, I did pre-order Starcraft 1 remake which wasn't too bad. Then I fell for the Warcraft Reforged. Ugggh, never again after that. Probably for large titles, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 were my prior pre-ordered games. Blizzard's physical collector boxes usually don't disappoint...however I'm not sure I'll do it for Diablo 4. Not sure how I feel about that yet.

Regarding Cyberpunk. I love Witcher 3 and love CDPR as a developer but that doesn't mean I'll go and pay top money for anything they drop. Since I'm not familiar with Cyberpunk as it's the first of their new IP, I'm not into it... yet. Knowing what I know now about Witcher 3, if they dropped a part 4, I would probably pre-order it out of respect, lol.

Looking forward to the game but pushing it back a couple months isn't really much biggie at this point. Waited long enough.If I had to guess, the working from home thing kind of started out good and thought they could operate fully 100% as normal. That lasted for a month or two, but at this point, it's starting to take a toll. I know because I work for a software company in support and that's how it's felt. We've been able to manage pretty good for the first two months but the lack of easy access to just walk over to someone and talk to them at their desk or get into a meeting quickly in a room is starting to slowly push us back. Now it feels like we are at a slight struggle than how it initially started out.

Pretty cool being free to all online.

I wonder if they'll eventually back to convention centers once we have a vaccine out. Pax EAST in Boston was a fun trip with the buds each year and gave us something to look forward to. Despite each one getting progressively predictable and less exciting than the one before it. Just having an excuse to get out for the weekend, go out at night, get some food an drinks. Makes for a fun time.

I'm afraid that some events take on the new format and feel no need for the old ways because of cost reductions when you can just stream things in a smaller location. Especially if they decide to charge for the stream...

BRING BACK NOCTURNE!!!!! You do know Blood Rayne was a spin off of a character from Nocturne.

Nocturne was so ahead of it's time graphically. I remember when the system specs wanted like a 500mhz computer when like 350 was the most people could practically afford then. I still picked up the game despite not meeting the required specs and yeah, it ran horrendously but I had a blast with it. The moody atmosphere, the lighting effects and sound. Was awesome. I still remember how you could blow limbs off which was pretty big back then and literally blow off a vampires face with the elephant rifle. It was glorious for it's time when not many games allowed that stuff with the amount of detail it had.
