Looks like a God of War clone. Darksiders, God of War, even the new AC origins, odyssey, love me some over the top combat.

I'm not sure that nails the game.

The Youtuber is ACG so a little more than just a dude out there. He's been pretty solid.
One person who has had a brand new console fail on them means nothing. Even if he’s the Dalai Lama himself. Does the Lama have a YouTube channel?
Agreed one means squat, but how they say it, it sounded like it would be someone like me going on youtube and making that proclamation. ACG isn't bullshitting anyone.
I read the article again and don’t see them making light of who ACG is or implying anything about him being incapable or making things up.

The good thing about Mr. Penter being on the receiving end of a defective unit is that at least it will get a thorough failure analysis by Sony techs and we will hopefully find out what failed.
By the symptoms I’m guessing power supply or motherboard.

I mean the headline "A youtuber", could have been "Youtuber ACG", people would be more apt to know who's reporting this.

Really no big, but I just found that mildly interesting when I checked it out, oh you mean ACG's PS5 died.

To follow-up on a couple weeks ago, Uber, Lyft, et al. successfully bamboozled 58% of California voters into passing Prop 22, enabling them to continue ignoring state-mandated rights for their workers by refusing to classify them as employees. They spent $200 MILLION on advertising claiming the exact opposite of what the ballot measure actually means (compared to $20M by the opposition) and their stock prices have exploded this month with growth of 30-40%, making them billions of dollars richer in return. So yeah, some scary precedents. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/04/tech/california-proposition-22/index.html

They state they've made promises for better pay and conditions but lets see if that is binding. But yeah I knew this would fail, instead of looking out for better jobs for all as they do effect us all, I knew they'd go for Uber because people want the convenience and don't care about the quality of others jobs, which again indirectly affects theirs when the bar is lowered or raised.

The game has only sold 3 million units 2 months after launch across all platforms. That may sound like a lot, except when the estimation of the costs to make and market it were $190M dollars, plus the ongoing costs of maintaining the "live service" elements. It's player base on PC has gone off a cliff, so has its streaming numbers and most people I know who were super hyped for it got bored after a couple of weeks because like every live service game, there's no end game content. This is basically Anthem, except is cost even more because a huge chunk of the costs and profits go back to Disney. The Marvel superfans who will buy anything with that name on it have already bought it and now the word is out that it's actually a mediocre game at best. I think Square Enix will have to eat some financial crow on this one. But as someone who was fed up with this after 30 minutes with the free beta, they probably should.

Definitely Anthem but at least one full notch worse even.

The first one was kind of cool, but when I remember the great games Bioware produced that came before it, it spelled the beginning of the end for the Bioware I knew and loved. I really can't get excited about anything these guys announce anymore.

We all have are opinions, I don't believe this is a common one, to me it seems this was their pinnacle from reading others and it's been downhill since. I was overall never as enamored as Bioware as they were made out to be. Doesn't mean they didn't make a good or even a great game, but to me there plenty of ok games as well throughout. Please don't confuse this with me thinking they weren't good, just not some type of company that just put out masterpiece after masterpiece.

Bill Maher's episode Friday hits two good points, skip monologue go to first guests. Issues with social media then after that the panel and one of the strong takeaways is the far right is building a Taliban in the US.

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!

Here is something real imo, one issue with remasters is you lose all the mods and imo this series really benefits from mods. There is a lot of running back and forth and the mods that speed that up to me are a godsend. There are better quality graphic mods, so if this is all it brings, sometimes we even find out the mods do a better job. Now for consoles you take it, but being a PC site I would at this time honestly really question if the Remasters are better for today's audience then mods that exist with the current versions. For me I wouldn't play without mods now, they just add gameplay QoL enhancements.

You are not the target audience. The target audience is the new generation of teenagers or young adults with next gen consoles PS5/XSX who are supposed to buy the new Mass Effect after getting hooked on the remasters. EA's goal is to keep their venerable Mass Effect franchise relevant throughout this upcoming console cycle. They also need a few shiny, big eggs in the basket to make their subscription model more attractive. Reviving Mass Effect makes a whole lot of sense from a business perspective.

Yep games live forever now. Someday they'll be games that have done way better in the future then when released and if the authors are still alive they'll still get to reap the rewards.

I don't understand all this handwringing. It was over Tuesday night. The problem rests with states like Michigan where they cannot start tabulating mail-in ballots until the day of the election. Most sane states start tabulation soon as they get them. The only people that can fix that is congress.

The people that can fix this are the states and only them and they will, they've already talked about it. That said MI was complete faster than most states, many are still counting. They just couldn't call until later because it was so close.

The GOP has certainly done everything they can to legally rig which amounts to the same thing - defunding the post office, gerrymandering, disenfranchising voters through all manner of arbitrary rules, suing the shit out of everything to keep votes from being counted. And then there's the outright illegal shit they've been doing like putting fake ballot boxes all over the place in California, etc. And I'm sure they're got their insiders doing their best to trash mail from Democratic strongholds, etc. In spite of it all it still looks like Joey Bides is gonna squeak in there. Aaaa oooo!

Yes they have become the party of projection in many ways.

Fox actually made it the easiest to grasp and it isn't all that difficult, they would show results of all states and you can see in states called long ago almost none were done, some were still in the 80's as of Friday evening. When it is super close then you have to actually wait on them to count them all vs knowing it's over at a certain point mathematically. Nothing more than that, yes it is extended because of more mail in ballots then ever because of c19. All logical, just takes time.

The states that count the mail in's after, some allowing mail in's for the first time, said they will change their plans next go around, ya know how it is supposed to work. See an issue, make it better.

Update: For last gen games, the XSX seems to be a bit faster when it comes to loading times, which is odd since Sony was supposed to have double the SSD speed? But nothing here is optimized yet.
https://www.gamespot.com/videos/playstation-5-vs-xbox-series-x-load-times-comparison/2300-6454169/

Right this was/is to be one of the big things it would have even in front of PC's. So I get the idea a game has to be designed for it and those could be coming. But you think they would have redesigned the OS/UI to take full advantage now. We know they have a fast SSD in it, but currently it seems it is bottle-necked exactly how PC's are, seeing but a fraction of that in true throughput. So yes initially here, what's up Sony?

Listen AMD has made up all the ground, but it isn't like Intel is behind or even not as cost effective. It's pretty competitive right now, that said I'm probably going AMD soon.

Dungeons 3 is probably the best iteration of the Dungeon Keeper clones/wannabes/knockoffs, although none of these newer games really seem to capture the feel of DK1. Rose colored glasses, possibly. If people have been getting every EGS freebie this whole time, they are starting to amass a pretty decent library of good games by now. Hopefully it's helping the developers/publishers as much as it is the end users.

Even more than War for the Overlord? That is like a clone. Dungeons series always had their own take on it and from what I hear each just got better, haven't played 3 yet.

From what I've read, the XBX is a PC. So I guess we PC gamers "won."

Yep, but it is also a smart move, consoles should now just get fasted and keep compatibility for much longer. So much R&D saved.

If the series x natively supported keyboard and mouse, I would seriously consider buying one and just use my PC for strategy games. It's way cheaper than these next-gen gpus.

This, if they did that from the start things would have been a lot different. They were going to, but they got scared of hacking and look at them now, well in second place out of two.
