Is PS1-era graphics appreciated enough to be considered cool 'retro' yet? Has that much time passed? The 90's were, like, 5 - 10 years ago wasn't it?

TBH - my 13 year old is playing old Quake and Half-Life so maybe enough time has passed. Man, am I getting old...

The game is currently in preproduction, so it doesn't yet have...

... any leaks to reveal just yet, but hold tight we're sure you'll see something soon.

Not gonna lie, kind of wished the announcement trailer was for a new Netflix series. Really short but they did a good job with it.

Eh.... I play Candy Crush for a quick few minutes during down time. Have they received a red cent directly from me? No and I've been playing for years. Now do they make money off of me? Sure, by watching an advertisement for a few additional turns or a bonus.

So it's not just dollars literally leaving my account into their account; it's also coming from eyes where they're making money. I didn't see anywhere in the article what they said the profits are physically coming from, just total percentage earnings so I guess everyone immediately assumes microtransactions.

I don't necessarily think watching ads makes anyone a knuckledragger or you can turn off your TV and never turn it back on, but go ahead and keep visualizing/stereotyping what you think a typical player of mobile games is.

Never played it and (honestly) it's the first time I've ever watched a trailer for the trucking sim franchise. Driving a truck doesn't sound that appealing to me, but the level of detail across all the different locations makes for great site-seeing and is extremely impressive. That may be the point and I'm just now figuring that out now.

One of the shots of a small town looked like one of the stores has either an event poster or help wanted brochures hanging in the window. Was taking for granted all of these tiny details had to be modeled at some point and it's not a movie set with a camera. There were several times I paused the video so I can take it all in.

I'm a sucker for puzzle games.

As I get older, I'm realizing my reflexes aren't quite what they used to be and, honestly, I don't have a ton of time. So something I can pick up, play for an hour and put down without having to constantly check to remember the controller mapping after leaving the game for a week or so.

I've been revising older Myst, Zork and King's Quest games. Call it nostalgia or just me losing the desire for button/keyboard smashing. It wasn't for these types of title I could very well be aging out of gaming thus passing the torch to my kids. (not without first whooping them in Street Fighter a game or two)

The in-car picture in that article is absolutely horrendous. That looks extreme but apparently so common it’s become a city-wide problem.

Christ... the original game came out in 2003. The teaser trailer for the sequel was put out in 2008. Been waiting for this game for nearly 15 years. I don't think any modern game comes as close to vaporware as this game does. I still won't believe this is ever coming out until I get my hands on a playable demo.

Hmm… Ironic that the Blues logo is Duke Nukem

Re: Gollum

I thought I remembered seeing videos of this months ago that looked significantly better? Whereas this looks like it was captured from a half-eaten potato. If I didn't know better, I'd say "that looks decent for a mobile game".

Or perhaps am I misremembering, and those previous videos were pre-rendered or something? In any case, this doesn't look current-gen, so I hope the gameplay and story makes up for it.

I’m with you, not that impressed with Gollum, seems less interesting and could pass as a mobile game. Can say that with Steelrising too. Put “American McGee’s Alice: Steelrising” and it pretty matches a game I played back in late 2000/early 2010.

I'm running a 1660 Super we bought right before Covid and I still haven't had any complaints. My boys aren't trying to run the absolute newest games on maximum settings. They're able to do SteamVR with their Oculus just fine and seems I've been playing a lot of GOG games lately so we're in no rush. Maybe next generation like others are saying.

My top (most played) Atari games:
- Yar's Revenge
- Kaboom!
- Berzerk
- Defender

We still have 2600 in our closet with most of our games. Still works! I pull it out on occasion to let the kids play. Fairly repetitive so it was pretty easy as a kid after a few plays we'd either move on to a new game or just go play outside.

It’s my level-up day today. Always been fond of the #13 opting for it as my jersey number anytime I played a sport. It always seems to be available. I enjoy it even more when it lands on Friday.

The Sunday birthdays aren’t so fun as I end up sharing the day with all the mothers in the world.

Happy Birthday!

Thanks so much!

Late to the conversation, catching up from the weekend and reminded myself to watch the announcement trailer. I'm usually hit-or-miss with Lego games. But looking forward to the Skywalker Saga release next week as it doesn't look as ultra-kid-friendly as most Lego games are.

This one, on the other hand, looks really appealing to me as it seems to focus more on the problem solving aspect. The idea of getting a set of blocks and having to create something specific with it with real-world-ish/physics response sounds like a lot of fun. Most Lego games don't remind me of my childhood but this one seems to have done it.

And I'll also say the textures/shading/shadows are looking really good. It's looking more and more 'real' with each new game they release.

It looks like it's based on Afterlife. Ray's shop from this trailer is straight out of that movie.

I'm guessing the cartoony look is just because it's a lot cheaper and easier to make a game with that art style than trying to make something with a more realistic one, especially when you hit the uncanny valley and miss and tank your game as a result.

His bookstore was first introduced in GB2. The only reason I think it may closer to Afterlife timeframe is their age/look. The Ecto-1 didn’t show whether it has a gunner seat. That would probably be the telling factor.

Looks a tad too cartoonish/plastic-y to me which I'm sure is trying to make it more accessible for kids. Probably set some time shortly after GB2 (somewhat in its hey-day) with the Ecto-1 and the firehouse looking practically new with just a couple of added smudge marks here and there.

I know it's not based on Afterlife, but that one had more rawness to it which I enjoyed. This is a little too shiny for my taste. GB1 didn't even come off as this polished.
