I'm a massive fan of the Conan IP and the original works of Robert E Howard. Conan Exiles is an excellent game (and Mutant Year Zero was very good as well), so more games in the Conan universe can only be a good thing.

Aren't they though BoP? While yes Total War: Warhammer has been their dominant game in the last several years, they have other 'non IP' games they've released. Total War Saga: Troy (though I understand it's a bit more fantastical than other 'historical' TW games), and Total War: Three Kingdoms was a pretty big hit as well.

On topic, I saw this coming a mile off. It's been more than a month since we've heard anything about TW:W3 and it was expected around November. I'm fine with the delay if that delay means a more finished and fleshed out game.

Yea you can put crusade mode on auto. But NOTE: Once it's turned on, you can't turn it back off. Also at least one of the Mythic Paths (I believe Gold Dragon, don't quote me on that) cannot be accessed if you turn on auto mode because it requires you actively play through it to unlock it.

It'd be nice to see UW monitor support, but I feel like the number of people with UW monitors is still such a tiny minority that I'd rather then get the game out on the release date than spend an extra several months implementing that for launch.

It's gonna be a long two weeks waiting for this. The beta was excellent, I can't wait to run through the whole game with friends.

Oh I'm the complete opposite Bill. A Firaxis tactical RPG set in the marvel universe with lots of classic RPG mechanics, sign me the hell up. The Xcom series has strong mod support that has extended the life of Xcom 2 by a huge amount, with new mods coming out to this day that change the game up in surprising ways., so I hope this game does so well.

I'm with you on a mission editor though. The ability to create our own missions to share with the community would be epic.

Elite Force 1 was a very solid game as I remember, I enjoyed the hell out of it. Fighting Borg and Species 8472, exploring the Voyager, hanging out with Chell and some of the other secondary characters from the show.

Elite Force II was an abysmal sequel, though as I remember there was much hype about the game being set on Enterprise E.

As for Bridge Commander, the fan modded "Maximum Warp Edition" is absolutely the definitive version.

I may have to check that out.

Glad to see Wrath of the Righteous doing so well. It's a great cRPG, that overcomes some of the clunkiness and extremely swingy balance of Kingmaker, while maintaining (and expanding) the core ruleset and giving you many options to play the game the way you want to.

A whole lot of people like to make fun of this game. For me, it was my favorite open world game since Skyrim. Bugs and all. Imagine how good it could have been if they'd finished it. This is great news, hope they eventually reach their initial vision.

Same. My experience on PC was relatively bug free - though I feel for console players who had a neigh unplayable experience (expecially on previous Gen). The story was excellent, so word of a 2nd expansion in the works is great news. As to multiplayer, hopefully it's a little more open than GTA Online, as others have mentioned there are a whole bunch of buildings that are fully (or at least partially) enterable. I could have a lot of fun on an RP server playing out my corporate fantasies in a high rise apartment, or just a dude out in the desert chilling with his clan.

Also ultrawide support my ***, it's got 2 black sidebars that look like fog of war.

Did you try the 'G' key on your keyboard? It swaps between the old D2 graphics and the new. As well, the 'F' key will zoom in and out on your character in the game.

G & F? Pretty sure those are F5 and Z keys by default. And swapping between old and new graphics is a kick. Makes you realize just how much your nostalgia brain upgraded those graphics in your memories lol.

I played for a while yesterday, I did have a crash during intro vids but it was only once and I didn't have a problem when I restarted the game several times throughout the day. They're definitely going to want to fix that issue for launch. The only other problems I came across was some minor lag (not unexpected for an open beta) and a few visual bugs. For the most part the game was a blast, I hadn't played it in 20+ years so it really brought back memories.

And D3 better than D2? I played the hell out of D3 for sure (especially after the dramatic improvements made with the launch of the expansion), but D2 is widely considered the best in the series. Better combat, better bosses (D3 diablo is such a pushover), better end game, and way better PvP (though not balanced in any sense of the imagination lol). But your opinion is no less valid, just very unexpected lol.

It wouldn't be Epic if they weren't constantly stealing other peoples ideas, doing cheap knock offs of it and making a fuck ton of money off name recognition and working their developers to the bone.

Glad that Biomutant was a success, it's a fun game that had a few early issues at launch that the devs hammered out in the first week or two. It is a cool setting and IP, and as an open world game there was always something to find around the corner so it really tickled the explorer in me. I look forward to more games using the IP.

The Android and Roku apps needs a rework too. I can't even watch anything on the android app because the frame keeps popping in and out, going from normal to where I only see a third of the screen. Sometimes it fixes itself a few seconds later, sometimes it doesn't. Meanwhile on my Roku Ultra, the app is slow as balls, taking sometimes 30 seconds just to fully load, and the menus are a chore to navigate because of how slow it is. Every other app loads in seconds and has zero problems with slowdown.

I want to get this game (on a deep sale) because I hear it's very good, but I'm just so burnt on Assassin's Creed games. I mean I got my moneys worth when I bought Odyssey (again, on sale) but I didn't come close to finishing it because of the extreme copy-pasta environments/buildings/missions everywhere. I just couldn't clear yet another identical castle or climb to the top of yet another identical temple, or fight yet another identical battle or convert yet another identical looking town to the faction I chose (which has no discernable differences to the other faction).

A solid year later, I bought Origins after people told me it was amazing, again on a deep sale. I barely made it past the tutorial when I got a mission to sneak into a high ranking persons home and sneakily take out his guards. The same quest I had done a dozen times in Odyssey in the same exact building as every other 'take out high ranking bla bla' from Odyssey. Maybe 15 minutes into the game and I was just done.

I understand that Valhalla breaks away from the formula more than any other AC game in ages. But I can just tell that I'll feel like I'm playing the same exact game again just minutes into it. If I do pick it up, it'll be for $5 just to see if my gut is right. But I love the series, and while I hadn't bought an AC game since Black Flag when I got Odyssey, I want to like these games more.

While the second game was mechanically superior, the story wasn't remotely as interesting, hilarious or raunchy. The second game was more like a kid's game, there was barely any raunchy content. Unfortunately Obsidian Entertainment doesn't publish through Ubisoft anymore, it's a M$ company now. So if they can't make the third game, I'd just greatly prefer that Ubisoft give it to a smaller developer under their umbrella, with bright ideas, and the drive and love of the series to make a great game.

Man I can't wait to pick up Everspace 2. Everything I hear from the sequel is that it's fantastic. But I don't do EA as a rule unless I have a *lot* of trust in the company. Even then, I usually avoid it. I've bought maybe two EA games on steam total.

It can be a little eerie no doubt Blue. Especially in the big arenas where they play basketball and football. But I also like that the teams have become their own fans. When not participating themselves they're going to watch and support their teammates and it can get loud. Swimming and Judo last night were very loud lol. Volleyball is always popular and it's been fairly loud too.

It's certainly a different kind of Olympics, but so far it's been a fun one to watch. At least for those of us that have escaped NBC's horrible coverage.
