So FF7, several years after its announcement, has moved out of the concept stage. Well they're just working like gangbusters on it aren't they!

I don't know what you guys are complaining about, what he said is actually right on the money, the only shame is that it's taken them so long to realise this.

The "eureka" moment is when they realised that PC gamers don't want to log into a fucking Xbox app, or manage an Xbox account, or go to the Xbox store on PC. They thought that their existing branding was a feature, but it's always been a bug for PC gamers.

For all their fuckups, I'm pretty happy to be able to finally buy a game once which works on my Xbox and my PC (and migrates save files automatically to boot). I think we've all been there at one time or another, debating whether to have to re-buy a game we already own cause we want to play it on a different platform. There's only a handful of games (mostly first party titles) that use this "play anywhere" program, but it's fucking great and very consumer-friendly. Also, it supports cross-play. I play Gwent on Xbox and PC and I can play PvP against people from either ecosystem. I think Forza 7 works the same way too.

I see the upside for XBox owners (I'm not one of them) and in a vacuum what Spencer is saying would be a welcome breath of fresh air. But we don't live in a vacuum; we live in the world where Microsoft, once a fantastic PC game publisher, abandoned the market entirely for the greener pastures of consoles (Fair dues, that's their right to do so obviously) but then, realizing they aren't good at competing in that space, comes back every 12 to 18 months and "recommits to PC gaming" but does fuck all in that regard. The massive collective eyeroll that the latest recommiting line is eliciting is MS proving itself to be all talk and no action time and time again and people are wise to their bullshit. You need to look no further than GFWL and the dumpster fire that is the Windows10 store for a glimpse at how inept modern day Microsoft is at PC gaming.

In their defense the original was not developed originally to go in the direction the fans wanted, so they decided to basically start over from scratch. But yeah, this is going to be a tough sell to people turned off by them abandoning the first game to make a new one to sell them.

I have to admit, they came up with some interesting mechanics for this mode. I suck at killing other Guardians though - I think my Crucible K/D ratio is 1 kill for every 50 deaths.

about 5 minutes of fun then boring repetition sets in.

Is that your general opinion on action RPG's or is there something specific about this one in particular? Just curious...

Given the length of time Destiny 2 has suffered from a dearth of content the asking price for this is making it a tough sell for me. Especially after what they charged for the 2 DLC they've released so far considering how relatively little content they added. It sucks because Destiny 2 is a great game in a great universe at its core.

YES! The Yakuza series is one of those over which I've been toying with the idea of buying a PS4 to play. There's still "Last of Us", "God of War" and "Persona" though.

Update: For those interested www.fanatical.com has Yakuza 0 for sale at 4 bucks off ($15.99). I snapped it up.

I know it's fashionable to hate on Brad Wardell (admittedly the guy sometimes doesn't know when to just be quiet) but I really like Stardock games (Where is "Sins of a Solar Empire 2"???) and this new Star Control looks like it is going to tick my boxes so I'm looking forward to it.

As a heads up if you download and like Zigguarat, do yourself a favor and pick up Immortal Redneck. It's fantastic.

I LOVED DL - what a great game! I had sooo much fun with it and when I wanted to get a dose of "FUUUUUUUUCK! Rrrrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnn!" I ventured out into the dark parts of the city at night. It always ended in some really great, nail-biting adventure.

Guys, I don't get why so many gamers here feel let down by the announcements - I still remember playing G.I. Joe decades ago and discussing with friends if we would ever see games that had the (back then!) awesome graphics of the scripted parts - and look what we get now - I never DREAMED of graphics this brilliant and open worlds! I, for one, am always amazed to see Mordor, the Dying Light city, the Witcher world, the FarCry words, Elder Scrolls, GTA, or Guild Wars 2... And I am thankful that I am (still) around to actually play those. I have played hundreds of hours of Pong, Frogger, Centipede, and so many more but I don't want to go back. No more pixel graphics, I am all open world, ARPG, best graphics possible - this is what I always wanted and now am getting in abundance. This is a great time for gaming - ENJOY IT, GUYS!!!

This is me to a tee. Life has jaded me horribly towards people and the world in general, but when it comes to videogames I'm the same 8 year old kid playing Adventure on the Atari 2600 smiling ear to ear, staring at the screen in wide-eyed wonder; the same kid playing Outrun on his Sega Genesis dreaming wistfully of a day when I could actually visit that big city on the horizon. Until some corporate vultures fuck up my Star Wars - the defining world of my childhood - with predatory gambling mechanics and cynical bullshit monetization and insult my fucking intelligence by telling me they ruined my lifelong dream of playing in Tolkien's magical universe with loot boxes that make half the game pointless because they wanted to give me "choice"...Then I'm a jaded cynical fuck again.

Did I forget to mention FUCK EA and WB?


EDIT: Yes I know both games are fixed now - LONG after the fact and frankly these things should have never been there in the first place. First impressions stick. So fuck 'em.

Really liked the first one despite the goofy story. I'm tiring of zombies but if this is as crazy fun as the first I'll be on board.

I remember when DICE made innovative game modes like Titan in BF2142 and Rush in Bad Company 2.

Now they're just a #metoo studio

/sad

I am not much of a multiplayer gamer but 2142 was my hands down favorite of all time. What could be cooler than rocketing up to a massive floating airship and destroying it from the inside? It's a travesty that there's never been a follow-up. Screw all this "WW2 is new again!" crap - it really isn't.

7 of the 10 on this list are essentially single-player games. (Not counting Vampyr being listed twice...) That's fantastic.

"Single-player is dead!" is corporate speak for "We can't monetize the shit out of Single-player games, so we want it to die".
