Sad to see this as a timed exclusive. The first game was amazing, one of my favorites in recent history, so I have been following the devs closely. They're a small studio from Brazil and I know the money from an exclusivity agreement is an overall good thing for these guys, but sad I'll have to wait until it comes to PC/Consoles. I'm happy for their success!

They also run little seasons in-game and post the winners to Social Media (per platform). I took a few first places on the Xbox

Facebook post about the Hall of Mirrors Season results in which I spent an unhealthy amount of effort improving my times to claim first place

Jailbreak and Action Quake!

Also in Q2 Capture the chicken and Freeze Quake / Freeze Tag (I don't remember the name any more).

Jailbreak was such a fantastic mod. There's a reddit community for Quake 2 that puts together matches every now and then and it's always a good time!

Love you Blue, and love the site you've built. It's been the last bastion of no bullshit news in the gaming industry. Been a regular since before you had the bluesnews.com domain - 20+ years now. But the toxicity in the forums and the lack of a real response to someone who has been spewing INSANE shit-takes for his ENTIRE account history is bringing my readership to an end. I went through my comment history, and I've been calling him out on toxic takes as far back as I can go. And looking through HIS history, at least 50% of what I spot checked could be nuked for a rule violation.

Folks like that push good people out of the industry and prevent the community from growing. I left after a threat dropped on my Twitter during a MTGO outage years ago for something that the "gamer" had no clue about. Said he'd rape my wife and kill my dog because a major upstream failure at Century Link ruined his card game. This industry is full of this kind of cancerous entitlement. And you can't passively handle that level of cancer. It isn't working.

Thank you for everything

And you have the option that was included years ago to block Cutter.
While you may not agree with someone and what they say, if you are given the tools to not have to deal with the situation and then take no action and continue to complain, who's fault is that, and then who is to blame?

Blocking him doesn't remove his impact on every comment thread. So while I wouldn't see his particular contribution, the comment thread has still been tanked and the focus for at least part of the conversation is trying to throw water on a grease fire.

Cutters posts have been low effort offensive garbage since he signed on. Banning him would do a lot for the quality of these forums. But I think, after having been here since the days before the bluesnews.com domain, I've come to realize that these forums are just not healthy and nothing Blue can do will fix them. Every time I click on a comment thread, it reinforces my decision to leave the gaming industry.

Anyway, another 20+ year vet saying adios and thanks for all the links. Sorry Blue, but for once you gotta take a stand and do something, passively moderating a perpetual problem ain't gonna cut it. Seriously, more than half of his post history right now could be removed for rule violations, why do you shelter him? For his free speech to just shit on *everything* all the time? Bleh.

The more I play elden ring the more impressed I get at how vast the game is. Going back to areas I rushed through the first time, finding more and more content. Pretty amazing. Wondering how Fromsoft will top this game.

How would the replayability be of the game?

I'm 160 hours in on my first playthrough, and I'm finally at the final boss (game doesn't end, either, allows you to go back and take care of loose ends/freely explore after). It's the first Souls game to really grab me. I own Bloodborne and Souls 3, but they never really clicked for me. I begrudgingly got Elden Ring, thinking I knew I wasn't going to like it, but wanting to join in with my friends anyway. And it's all I've played since.

I'd highly recommend it

It's available now and it's $10


People complain about old games losing support and no longer running, but then the same people complain about beloved old games getting updated so new gamers can easily access them and old gamers can properly run them on their rigs.

It's $10.


Not only is it just $10, it's the reason many of us are here -- and the Steam OG Quake got the update for free. I'm buying a copy for my younger brother in law, going to play through the campaign with him and then introduce him to DM6

I'll defend this game and it's many poor choices to the very end, because at the end of the day it does provide a lot of enjoyment. But the lack of VR support in the new expansion really feels like a punch in the mouth. I have invested in a pretty significant sim rig, and one of the better experiences is flying around space with a HOTAS, pedals, and VR. Having to ditch that set up for the new Odyssey content is pretty frustrating. I get the difficulties, but there's been no commitment or roadmap even proposed. While not ideal, I would settle for using an Xbox controller for locomotion in the first person/space legs content, but that's not even proposed as a potential solution.

I think, ultimately, odyssey won't overcome these challenges in an acceptable manner

Remastered or not, I am not one to go back and play games I've already completed. There are so many games that I want to play out there and I don't have enough time to play half of them. That being said, the Mass Effect trilogy is one of my favorites gaming series of all time and I am glad that it can be experienced by newcomers.

I have always wanted to dive into the Mass Effect games, and this will be my first opportunity -- just wasn't good timing with the others. I'm super excited!

Shrug.

I thought the reveal looked fine. I've always enjoyed the Halo series, no doubt will enjoy this one too. I can't think of a single title in the past 5 years that didn't get absolutely destroyed by the fan base for some stupid little nitpick bullshit. The older I get, the more I feel disconnected from the mainstream "gamers."

Valve as a game development studio died a while ago. They haven’t done anything of note outside of hats and weak iteration of the counter strike franchise. Oh and Dota2, which will always be in League if Legends shadow. Sad no more L4D, but not surprised.

I've never played Halo is it worth getting on PC?

IMO, it's the best Halo campaign. The remaster for PC is very well done, controls feel native and the graphical update breathes new life into the visuals. I haven't played around much with the multiplayer aspect outside of Firefight, which is still a blast.

I would definitely recommend it. Timeline wise, it's a prequel to first halo and is the beginning of the entire series storyline. It details the events leading immediately up to the start of the original game, and it does a great job at conveying the desperation.

Interested in the reviews on this, but I fear it's going to be positive even if the port is shit due to nostalgia. I've never played Halo, so it'd be good to finally see what all the hype is about.


The port is DEFINITELY solid. Plays like a native shooter

I got super excited for a second -- a fresh Rocket Arena! I played RA2 so much back in the day it could've been a fulltime job.

This looks interesting, but it's definitely not the Rocket Arena I was hoping for.

I feel like there are a lot of missing games/multiplayer mode opportunities out there for the taking and I'm constantly surprised that no one has tried to capitalize on them. Rocket Arena, Jailbreak, HeadHunters to name a few.

Or maybe I'm just old.

I tried to get into War of the Chosen twice and ended up parking the game both times. I think fighting the Chosen and the Lost is too much of a chore. Regular Squad versus Pod is the good shit, and to me the expansion gets you spending too much time doing not that. I'm now into a straight XCom 2 Long War run, and I am having much more fun so far.

Eh, the Chosen aren't that tough as long as you figure out how they work. Really the troublesome one is the assassin, and then you just bring battlefield scanners to see her. The other two are kinda weak, unless you happen to run into the summoner one in an underground level. The sniper literally never does anything, because you have to stand still in his sights for a whole round for him to get a shot off, which makes him useless.

The lost can get boring, yeah, although I enjoy just mowing through entire hordes of them.


In any case, for those who want to try this out, please note that vanilla Xcom2 is a bit... I dunno, underwhelming, I'd say, compared to Xcom with Enemy Within. War of the Chosen, however, makes it a fantastic game. Truly one of the better expansion packs to be made in a long time. (really I'd only put the Witcher 3's expansions above it, to be honest.)


Oh man I absolutely loved Enemy Within, but I have to disagree: vanilla XCOM2 is fantastic and every bit as enjoyable as EW. I have it on Steam, but I recently bought it again on the Xbox during the target sale just to play it on the couch
