Bethesda really needs to do a better job of marketing their games. Prey, Evil Within, Doom, Wolfenstein, Dishonored... they've made a lot of good games over the past few years but failed to give them the exposure they need to really succeed. EW2 is a significant improvement over the first game in many ways but it barely got any marketing.

Enough with the stupid battle royal nonsense, you can't shoehorn it very easily into an existing game and it usually turns into an disliked part of the game. Just a waste of developer resources.

What you just said is pretty much the exact opposite of what has actually happened. H1Z1 gained significant popularity when it added a Battle Royale mode (which is now the primary mode of the game). Same with Fortnite.

Making a Battle Royale mode for Dying Light seems like it would be pretty straightforward. The game already had co-op. Just turn on friendly fire and add some sort of time pressure factor. Bam, Dying Light Battle Royale. I could totally see this being successful.

FYI: This is the first game in the series, from 2011, not the 2016 Homefront: Revolution which was pretty good. I just grabbed it, so I have no idea if it is better or worse than the sequel.

I liked the sequel a lot more. The first game is basically just a lower-budget version of CoD. The multiplayer was apparently good but I don't think anyone plays it anymore.

Blood Ties isn't new. It came out a while ago. This announcement is just for the new VR implemention.

Yup. PUBG's been top dawg since March consistently every fucking week after week after week...
No CoD, no AssCreed, no Middle Earth, no GTA, no Skyrim, no Witcher has been able to dethrone it. Sad but true.

PUBG has sold over 22 million copies in less than in a year. On PC alone. It's pretty insane.

What IGN thing? Anyway, good game. I picked it up ages ago for a fiver or something. Quite enjoyed it actually.


Could not disagree more. If you miss this, you will be fine. I'd call it 4th worst Xcom game behind enforcer, Xcom3 and interceptor.

As an XCOM game, it wasn't great. As a standalone game with no baggage attached, it was actually pretty decent. The setting was cool and the combat was interesting enough. The story also has one of the weirdest plot twists I've ever seen in a game.

There's a pretty good chance they're going to release the Steam Link 2.0 soon. It's standard to significantly discount previous hardware iterations when the next iteration is just around the corner.

That's a lot of laptops where little timmy installed Steam on Grandma's computer because he wanted to play minecraft.
I bet the difference between on-line an in-game is 3 to 1.

Okay? It's not like Valve was claiming otherwise. This statistic simply shows how many people are using Steam at the same time, regardless of what they are doing on Steam. Valve doesn't really care if you're playing games or not.

Also, Minecraft isn't on Steam.

Or they could just pump out Battlefront 3 and release it next year.

Does it add a sense of pride and accomplishment by gutting everything in the franchise that made it interesting?

/snark

People are still hung up on this? Really? It's not like the original Prey was a critical or commercial success. Most people didn't care enough to play it and those that did thought it was just a solid shooter with some interesting gimmicks. Prey 2 had potential but we never saw more than a brief and heavily scripted demo. Who knows if the final game would have lived up to its promise.

What we did end up getting was a great spiritual successor to System Shock 2. If that's less important to you than an arbitrary title, you should probably reassess your priorities.

I'll give the demo a try but I am not sure I'll get the game.
A video on my youtube feed came up as a complete play through 6.5hrs
I skipped to the end and indeed the guy finished the game. It seems rather short. I thought the previous games were much longer

As with all games, your playtime comes down to several factors:
1) The difficulty setting you choose.
2) Your playstyle.
3) The amount of optional content you complete.

If you play on the highest difficulty and go for 100% completion, you'll easily get at least 20 hours out of the game.

Portal Combo package for a whopping $2.99 .

Is there anyone in existence that doesn't already own both Portal games?

On a side note, Shadow Tactics is awesome and everyone should buy it.

Bethesda's games seem to go on sale real quick. Wolfenstein II and Evil Within 2 both came out about a month ago and they're already 50% off. Even more surprising is that the Wolfenstein season pass is 50% off on a bunch of sites too.

These awards are based on community votes, so don't expect anything niche to win.

I mean, you got two huge, incredible single-player games winning for the other consoles and a multiplayer phenomenon on PC, all exclusives... then Xbox's GOTY is an indie 2D action/platformer, which by the way wasn't deemed good enough for overall best indie game.

There was no award for best overall indie game... only best indie game that was part of the Square Enix Collective program, which is extremely limiting.

Not at all. They've gone on record saying that they'd love to make a sequel.

The bonus missions were just that: bonus missions. They weren't originally part of the season pass and were basically given away for free.

THESE bonus missions aren't like the OTHER bonus missions. They're super special!!!

Why?

Because IO was still owned (and funded) by Square when those bonus missions were made and now they're not? IO's financial situation is completely different now that they're independent. They can't afford to continue creating substantial free content when they've already delivered everything they originally promised with the first season. Hell, they've delivered more than they promised.

I know it's a crazy notion but game development costs money. Content doesn't magically create itself. But hey, continue fighting the good fight on the internet. You'll show those damn greedy developers who actually want to get paid for doing their job!

In this case, "show, don't tell" definitely applies. Gameplay would have been far more effective than some generic protagonist talking.
