Game's combat animation looks super fluid and fast. Can't wait to give this a try.

It's been a looooong time since I heard Yuri's Revenge. Man, what a classic for me. Consumed so much of my middle school years going into Freshman year of hs. Then I became an addict to Warcraft 3 for the remainder of hs years.

I still consider C&C Tiberian Sun the game that officially got me into strategy games. The general census back then was that the game was hyped and failed to live up to the expectations. I still enjoyed it having zero hype or knowing much about the C&C universe.

When C&C Red Alert 2 dropped, I recall having bought it on day 1 and it came out with very favorable reviews. It was a blast for its time. I wouldn't mind a remaster of that in some form but it did have those sprite based graphics so I'm not sure what they could do with it unless they pulled a Diablo 2 Resurrected miracle on it. Could never get into Red Alert 3 though.

Sorry for the rant. Just the name brought back the memories, lol.

I still don't understand why they put Dead Island 2 on hold to push out Dying Light 2. Between the two games, I found Dead Island so much more enjoyable. Who the heck doesn't want to be stranded on a beautiful island resort with the undead? It was such an awesome contrast. The beautiful views of the ocean and palm trees and the walking dead roaming the streets and areas.

I'm dying (pun intended) for a new Dead Island. Dying Light was such a common, typical location, I just couldn't into it much the same way DI grabbed me in.

That is usually how it goes. They people can be the scum of the earth but in the end, they'll leave with millions (billions?) in the bank and not give a sh!t about what negativity they may have brought on to earn it. Money will always be the root of all evil.

Yeah, Blizz has been mostly mediocre as of late if you break it down. WoW is also really the game that leveled them up as a company. The amount of $$$ it brought them in was astronomical.

I'd say the last "good" game they made was Starcraft 2 but then again, it was just a new Starcraft 1. It didn't take much to get it right and they didn't update it with any new revolutionary ideas to the genre. Diablo 3 was a big disappointment. Warcraft 3 Reforged was horrendous. While I'm enjoying Diablo 2 Resurrected, it is literally the same game in beautiful new paint.

I'm looking forward to Diablo 4 but have zero hope at this point and hoping that by lowering my expectations, it can only do well.

I could never see PC gaming going anywhere. It is on levels similar to a car enthusiast but for gaming in general. If you want to customize and put your own flavor on your gaming style, PC gaming is where it is at. It has been that way for awhile, but obviously has exploded in the past years. The amount of cusotmization you can do is epic. Just walk into a Microcenter store. It is a kid in a candy shop for parts. Aisles of various fans, LEDs, etc. to spruce up your tower.

I don't doubt this Steam Deck will be a neat portable but I'm not looking at it anything more than that. Similar to a hide end gaming laptop, but in a compact, hand held design. Otherwise, the ideas are the same.

Are people really throwing that much shade on a new boxing game? The Fight Night series has surprisingy good mechanics and difficulty curve. It is a complete joke with the career and story modes, but I guess online makes up for that. Fight Night Champion on the PS3 still holds up visually today.

Cahrect! Fight Night is not just an arcade boxer game where you mash buttons and perform combos out of Mortal Kombat (thinkin Ready to Rumble Boxing here), but was really in depth. A veteran player vs a rookie showed the difference immediately and it had a very unique control scheme.

It was a very addictive game while drinking with a friend and would cause real punches to be thrown, lol.

Though at this point, I think ESBC will be the definitive boxing game to come out and for years to come. The animation is life like and what you can and cannot do appear to mimic true boxing (feints, footwork, cutting the ring off). I'm so looking forward to that game.

If EA can dig this series up from the grave, I'm all for it, but I honestly don't care about it.

I wonder if dinos continue to break out of fences every 5 minutes. That drove me nuuuuuuts! Sucks because I really wanted to get further into the game. I was enjoying my time with it until that became a routine occurrence. That became very dull quickly in having to capture the dino, transport them back, repair the fence, rinse and repeat. I read that you want to make sure they don't have aggressive genes to minimize that so I removed all the aggro genes from my dinos and it still occurred so I have no idea what else I was missing. Ruined the game for me for sure though.

I guess it's been long enough to call it a remaster. At this point, they could just easily drop an HD texture pack and call it a day. Of course they wouldn't however when they can double dip and grab plenty more moola.

That's awesome they did that but if you guys really want to experience this and get ready for part 2, pick up Outcast Second Contact. It is a gorgeous remaster but retains almost everything of the original including sound effects and bugs, lol. I actually was able to beat it, having never beat the original from like 1998. Still own the original jewel disc. Has a place in my heart, lol. Can't wait to see what they do with part 2.

Massive update is out for Deep Rock today, continuing their stellar post-launch support. New mission, events, boss and enemy types, WEAPONS (first time adding more), and a 100% free 'battle pass' type of reward system with loads of fresh cosmetics and other bonuses to complement the existing semi-daily and weekly objectives. I consider it to be among the top-tier indie games out there, endless fun in both solo or co-op, and a steal for $15.
DRG is fun in solo? Hm... The videos I watched were always multiplayer and looked great, but I expected the game to be quite unplayable solo because of the class system.

Same. My age, I don't have time to get together with buddies to co-op. I'm a solo guy. Get in, have some fun and get out before the wife gets home, lol.

How's solo gameplay?

New content is cool, but can they release this game already? I don't do early access, but man I want to play this game so bad.

I have a hard time believing how well this new one is now. I could not get into the first for the life of me but everyone is loving this one. They must of pulled a 180 on it. Granted, it was gorgeous looking. Almost any screenshot you take of the game was wallpaper worthy. Yet the gameplay wasn't matching it looks IMO. Perhaps the sequel does.

Could also be it was just incomplete somehow, using placeholder assets or missing some events.

I mean, I know it's Ubi, but, it could be something innocent...

Unlikely. The whole game is one big "placeholder" bugfest --> see the long thread on the FC6 forums where many people have reported issues with low res textures all over the game, regardless of whether the HD texture pack is installed or not (probably a bugged LOD system). It would be weird if they singled out just one mission as released too early. The entire game was released too early just like 99% of all games nowadays and like 100% of all UbiSoft games.
Arbitrarily removing content from a game that people have already paid for is borderline criminal. But, yeah, it's UbiSoft so this kind of customer treatment (and prioritizing consoles) is business as usual.

I'm sure there was a part you had to accept in an agreement before starting the game that allows them to do this. That and if they wanted to take the entire game down, they could also. I think we're agreeing to a lot of stuff these days without even realizing it, giving free rein to the companies to do whatever the heck they want, even after we gave them our money.

Surprised it took this long for her to blow town. Blizzard is done and all that's left is putting up the tombstone.

Yeah, because sex scandals and bad HR management has brought down Billion dollar companies before. I'm sure that all the millions of idiotic manchildren will all refuse to buy Diablo4 and Overwatch 2 as a result of this. /s

Yeah sucks. I hate to support a terrible company but I want Diablo 4! lol. What to do? Perhaps I can pray that it sucks and gets terrible reviews. Then save myself from having to give Blizzard another dollar. On that note however, I am part of the problem. I did purchase Diablo 2 Resurrected and have been having a blast with it. Perhaps I can just say, I'm supporting the memory of Blizzard North?

Our neighbor has a model 3 SR+ and let me drive it..... now driving my gas car feels like I'm shaking around in a steam powered prototype form early 19th century lol. And both our cars are roughly the same price when bought new so it's not like one should be any worse. But once you drive electric, it becomes glaringly obvious that gas cars are 20th century tech, and electric is a car from the 21st century. It's pretty cool being on the dawn of a revolution like this and seeing it unfold.

Yeah, unless your a car enthusiast like myself and see that industry dying because now everything is electric. Like, I enjoy driving my car. I drive a manual still just to feel the road more and get more out of my driving experience. The way they're going with electric, they might as well be iPhones on wheels. If they could take you out of the drive completely and fully automate it, they would.

Hopefully I'm alive to the point where I can still drive myself where I want to go before they write a law that requires all cars automated with zero human intervention, lol.

The open charger move is key. We definitely need to standardize this "recharging" process. It is going to be hellish enough dealing with the time and space requirements unless you are always close to your home setup.

Before we got to the point of too many EV cars on the road and not enough chargers, we'll need to have some solar charging tech that is reliable. Reliable enough to help cars charge throughout the day to not leave anyone stranded at night. Then you'll need less charging at either a station or at home.

These events are better held online anyway.

I'm not sure. I mean, there is the convenience of playing demos they offer at your own leisure at home but the overall atmosphere of being at the event obviously is missing and that adds to the experience. It was awesome meeting developers in person and them being excited to watch you play their game. They'd talk to you about it and what their end game was with development. It was also cool to have vendors there that sold peripherals and you could feel them out or try them before buying.

Granted, this was the PAX East experience in Boston that I'm describing and had a lot of fun each time we went. Made a nice weekend out of it. Arrive Friday mid-day, stay at a nearby hotel, go bar hopping at night. Hit up PAX on Saturday. Bar hop again Saturday night. Leave Sunday morning. Had a lot of good food and vibes while there.
