If they need to take more time to make this game great, I'm ok with that. The EA has come a long way and it's quite good atm.

I'm knee deep in Solasta atm anyway, which is a really solid 5e D&D based CRPG. The story isn't amazing, but the gameplay is fantastic. It even has a dungeon creator - currently in beta - though it's no where as extensive as the old NWN 1/2 stuff.. which I desperately miss.

I've tried and tried to get into this game. I've played through the tutorial zoo but when it comes to making my own.. well I suck at it and it always looks unrealistic lol.

Yea same, no issues on my end either.

Note folks, this crossplay is mostly cross-console, competitive on PC will be PC only (for obvious reasons). So game having some cross-play means its dying ah? So I guess this means Fortnite is dying too, since it too has crossplay. As does CoD Warzone.

Glad to see the team behind the fantastically done Baldur's Gate: Reloaded, are getting close with the sequel. For anyone who enjoys a good TTRPG but never played these classics, Neverwinter Nights II isn't modern-modern, but it's much, much closer than the original games, and so a good platform for experiencing them.

I'm quite enjoying it (though the cut scenes and lore dump early on are a bit much, they set up the story well). It isn't a game for everyone, and a lot of reviews seem to think this is an AAA game with a hundred million dollar budget behind it when it is an AA game with a small budget from an unproven studio.. It's a fairly laid back experience, lots of exploring, really good crafting system, decent and varied enough combat to keep things interesting. Story is pretty basic but that's ok.

Hmmmm… 5v5… strict roles… PvE elements… and talent trees…

WE A MOBA NOW BOYZ!!! YEEHAW!

Honestly though, as someone who hasn’t touched OW due to how stale it got after Year 1 I’ll take anything I can get to spark some interest in it.

The talent trees are for PvE only.

This move to 5v5, reducing the number of shields, bubbles, walls, etc, and substantially cutting back on CC is in fact to move away from the MOBA-like aspects Overwatch currently suffers from, and back toward the hero shooter it used to be.

I don't get it... now losing your Tank in battle (who often provides a shield) means the whole team collapses back to spawn to safely regroup? Doesn't sound like much of a sequel to me.

I don't get how this is a change. In current OW when the main tank dies, the group pulls back towards spawn to regroup. At least this is what people do at higher tiers of play & at the pro level lol.

I play on an RP-PVP server and everyone is really excited for Isle of Siptah. For those who haven't played this game since early access or just after release, it has improved by leaps and bounds. There's an enormous amount of content, with the Isle bringing in tons more. The game has a fantastic mod scene as well.

I'm not sure TLoU2 deserves those awards.....unless Achievement in Animation is meant to encompass acting, in which case I would agree. I realize it was a industry darling, but to me it was just a weak sequel. They took all of the poor design decisions from the first game and doubled down on them....but didn't have anywhere *near* the engaging story from the first.

HL:Alyx was absolutely amazing and set the 2020 bar for VR.

Probably need to pick up Hades on sale....all I hear is good buzz, but the Let's Play I watched at release didn't grab me.

Yea Hades is awesome, one of the best games this year. It's absolute snub at other award shows just goes to show how corrupt those others are.

As to TLoU2, I assume you are correct about Achievement in Animation, because all of TLoU2 is motion captured. Personally I think Cyberpunk 2077 deserves that award for it's pretty revolutionary automated facial animation technology. Sure it isn't as 'detailed' as TLoU2' because it isn't mocaped. And yet somehow the NPCs in that game are far more lifelike in their animations, personality and emotions than in TLoU2.

He has to be loaded, right? He did seem to be a genuinely good dude who cared about OW and loved the community.
Is is just me or is OW2 just PvE stuff like every event they have already? I didnt see anything really "new" or did I miss a lot of stuff they showcased?



It's focus is more in single player but it does include new multiplayer stuff, like a new game mode and several new characters. To learn more I recommend checking out the BlizzcOnline Overwatch 2 presentation. It's pretty hype.

As to Jeff, he was the heart of the game and will be missed.

Black Flag is unique and quite good. Origins is probably the best of the revamp in terms of story and design (though admittedly I haven't played Valhalla). I'll also always recommend Assassin's Creed 2 & Brotherhood, it's direct sequel.

Disney's greed on this has not done them any favors. Every movie they've released with this price tag has had seriously underwhelming returns according to industry reports. Now this is the first big marvel movie in more than a year so it'll do better, but I doubt by much. Most people will just wait a month for it to be available at no additional cost, myself included.

People who are saying the price is fine because theaters are at least as expensive. This is true, but watching a movie on your own television is a far cry from seeing it in IMAX for $30. I would be fine with charging a little extra for a new movie. Amazon does this, charging usually around $10-15 and does very well. The $30 price tag is just not something I could ever justify. Especially considering the quality of these $30 movies so far.

How do you know the content is radically different if you didn't play the game? There are some pretty big similarities. Both games have incredibly lifelike NPCs, and both have fantastic stories (though W3 is better in no small part because it's the culmination of a great (if not always mechanically so) fantasy trilogy. Both have amazing attention to detail.

Don't blame the developers just because the publisher saw that lucrative Christmas window and pushed out a game that simply wasn't done, let alone playable on consoles. In fact I'm almost certain that's a big reason why such a talented designer is leaving the company. CD Projekt won't be the same without him.
