HZD=Skyrim for children ages 7-12.
Have you even played either game? Not that Skyrim wasn't fun but there was no depth to that game at all. The story was... well the less said about the main story, the better. HZD had a much more interesting story and lore.
Yep, played 'em both. HZD only once, Skyrim still to this day. I'll agree that the main plot of Skyrim had no depth, but to say the game itself has no depth is just not true. I think most open world games really miss the mark that Skyrim hits. As big as the world is, it pales in comparison to the combined space of all the caves, forts, ruins, etc. Not to mention the entire snow elf underworld.
I love how complex the combination of smithing/enchanting is. I love how your weapon swings are slow and cumbersome if you aren't yet at a high level with it. I love all the books you can read, even. The lore is just fantastic. The sound effects in dwemmer ruins. The plethora of factions you can join.
All of this was done more than 10 years ago, and hasn't really been surpassed by anybody since, imo. Skyrim had plenty of depth, but you had to go look for it.

I legit dont even know if I should upgrade for this game?
r7 1700 stock
16 gigs RAM
1440p monitor running at 144hz
Then if I do upgrade, I have no idea to what? I heard the new (or soon to be out?) AMD chips are amazing for the price. I only research new tech when it comes time to upgrade.

Maybe go easy on the impossible coincidences and make Joel not behave completely out of character? Or in other words, forget the second game happened. Just my two cents.

I'd be a lot happier with WW on HBO Max if HBO Max didn't have the worst video and audio quality of any streaming service. Even if I had to pay for it, I'd much rather have a VOD option that would let me watch in 4K.

There is a sliver of a chance, but you could give me 1,000 to 1 odds and I still wouldn't bet on it. If he's smart, he'll resign on Jan. 13th and let Pence pardon him so he can even skip the hassle being charged, and tried.
At least they can be his pen pals while he's in prison.

I believe it. I remember playing that game and thinking to myself "Man this game has a lot of text."

Among Us seems to be so huge, I'm strangely tempted to buy it, just to see what the uproar is all about, first hand. The gameplay videos seem a little underwhelming though.

It was fun watching a couple streamers I like play through Little Hope. With that said, the game is very meh overall.

LOL this means absolutely nothing. Work will continue as is on the "day 1 patch". The DVDs will probably have a fairly playable version of the game, but that patch will have to be added for best experience.

Why the fuck would any of you wish for a change of engine now? Do you want to go another 5 years without a new BGS game?

Hopefully this will bring some much needed quality control to Bethesda's games. Also, Microsoft, please force Bethesda to use a new engine for future Fallout/ES games. It's time to retire Gamebryo. I really don't see a downside to this news.
You must not be running Windows 10? I've lost track of the number of severe bugs they've included with every single major Windows 10 update. From what I read, it mostly comes from the fact that they got rid of their physical hardware lab test harnesses and rely on virtual environments, which don't behave like physical systems in some scenarios. It would be nice if the gaming department did something different, but I certainly won't hold my breath.

inXile simply can't seem to make games that sell anymore. Wasteland 3 only made it to 6th place last week (launch was 8/28) and it's nowhere to be seen this week in spite of pretty decent critics reviews (86 MC average). Luckily it also has coop so publishers will hopefully not conclude yet again that single player RPGs do not sell anymore but it's still a pity to see WL3 fail at sales. It doesn't bode well for Microsoft's future plans with regard to inXile either. I don't necessarily mean shutting them down but the types of games Microsoft will greenlight.
