Not a word is mentioned of how much processing power is required to compress or decompress media for sending/playback. File sizes are absolutely not the only consideration at play here. This is a nothing burger without those details.
That's exactly the issue, AV1 is great but the demanding encodes have meant a slow rollout as specialized hardware edged in and general purpose tech moved forward (only the latest nV/AMD hardware has encode support). This is a step beyond that but if it's going to take a day to encode without specialized gear, it's wasted.

"Bethesda" and "day one greatness" aren't exactly synonymous, and who wants to play their games without mods? Bleech. I don't think I've interacted with Bethesda's original inventory system in any of their games for more than a few minutes since...Daggerfall? Removing my own appendix as Edward Scissorhands sounds less painful and more straightforward.

I don't think the "cameras" were the problem, I think the "scripts" mutilated by "idiots" who "mostly wanted to sell merchandise" rather than "make something good" or "understand the characters" were the real issue. Like the one from the famous Kevin Smith story about trying to produce a Superman movie and the guy's insistence on forcing a giant spider into the plot.

If you've been waiting for that Freelancer itch that hasn't been properly scratched since 2003, this is the game you've been waiting for. The mechanics and balance have been smoothed out over Early Access, and there's a good variety of weapons, ships, enemies, and abilities to keep mixing things up with. Can't comment on the story update as I haven't played 1.0 yet, but there was already so much game there it's easy to recommend a purchase in this sparsely populated genre.

Yeah, that's what you call a "value proposition" because I'm trading lack of permanent ownership, moddability, and control for a fresh buffet of AAA and indie titles, and for many games that's perfectly fine. If there's a game I care enough to mod or put tons of hours into, I'll buy it outright, and not from Microsoft's hyper-restrictive store. If the deal wasn't enticing Game Pass wouldn't be the rampant success that it is, because it offers a better value to gamers.

This game has solidly improved since release, and in particular the switch to full deck at the start + buyable random cards in the world made the game much more fun and dynamic. Trial of the Worm seems to further that variability, and I especially like the choose-your-corruption option, so I can tailor the difficulty for more rewards rather than the occasionally punishing un-fun combo of cards that makes a level a slog (I'm looking at you, Cost of Avarice). Pet Tallboy is just icing on the cake.

Jack Thompson is in the news using video games as an excuse for unstable murderers? I thought we had at least a full decade separating us from the Aughts and his having any slight relevance whatsoever by now...

Absolutely nobody asked for more story bits or anime elements, they're always the worst parts of these games. A heavy dose of garishly amateur filmmaking with Hellow Fellow Kids wannabe-cool scripting that adds nothing to the game, hard pass. A solid roster of cars highlighting classic rivalries, heavy customization, a bunch of slightly silly but awesome tracks/areas, and a banging soundtrack, that's what NFS is about. The story should be limited to: you drive fast(er) /or/ you cop catch fast car. Done.

The public is clamoring for sequels to Wacky Wheels and Jazz Jackrabbit, when will you listen?! Though TBH I'd kill for a sequel to Tyrian, the SHMURPG is a woefully underrepresented genre, only Jets'n'Guns has really scratched that itch since.

As usual, no love for Dropmix, a fun party/partner game with intuitive card-based DJ-mashup remixing as the core gameplay element.

The Commando (starter character) sucks, I really dug the Engineer, who's unlocked by completing 30 total stages. You get a pair of turrets that mirror the bonuses your character has, so they can get quite powerful after a few upgrades. Haven't dived back in since right around release, so I think I'll give this another run. Or two. Or three...

It's map-view top down, so no, not really side-scrolling. I've put over...*checks*...wow, 40 hours into this game already, and it's a ton of fun. The semi-demanding gameplay and delightful consomme of boiled down roguelite tropes and RPG inventory management, and getting the balance of difficulty right for your run with how and when you place cards, deciding whether to risk another round and only go home with 30/60% of your loot, or call it at the campfire with all spoils intact, it's involving without needing you to do every second of the clicking.
