Hope Tim is doing something in the vein of Fallout. I'd rather see a new CRPG in some setting other than high fantasy, particularly from him.

I have it from a former employee they are working on their own post apoc CRPG. Since Obsidian can't get Fallout they decided to make their own fallout like IP with the original Fallout devs.

Seeing as Tim and Len were Fallout I'm pretty fucking stoked if that's the case. Regardless, Tim is one of my fave game devs so it'll be day one for me regardless of what it is but a new post-apoc game from him would be win icing on the awesome cake!

Cake


Then you may also be excited to hear after this game, assuming it does well, there has been some talks in making another VtM game, a bloodlines spiritual successor if you will. Since Obsidian already has a working relationship with the new owners of the vampire IP it would make sense.

FYI

If Obsidian did make another Vampire game with Paradox, it most certainly would not be 3D. Paradox doesn't have the money to make a 3D RPG like Bloodlines. It would likely be a 2D, isometric affair which I'm fine with but a lot of people wouldn't be.

I wonder if this game will have any sort of post-launch DLC that they charge money for. Call me a literalist, but if you charge $14.99 for content not included in the original vanilla game... that's a fucking microtransaction.

Not really. Microtransactions refer to payments for things like loot boxes, in-game currency, early unlocks, etc. You're paying money in order to speed up progression. Paying money for meaningful new content is not a microtransaction.

Publishers love microtransactions because they don't have any real cost (aside from the initial system implementation). It's pure profit. DLC, on the other hand, requires developers to actually create content and that costs money.

I'll definitely play it, but I fail to see what's different about this game gameplay wise. Looks like just a different coat of paint.

Pretty much. I definitely got that feeling from Primal, which is probably why I got bored of it so quickly. The Far Cry formula is getting stale. FC4 was the best one but at this point, I think they need to mix things up a lot more.

Thief should have been a slam dunk. Go back and play 1 and 2. Modernize the mechanics but don't reinvent them. Create a compelling story. Ship it. Sell like gothcakes on Halloween. Shalebridge Cradle is one of the pinnacles of atmosphere and level design. It should have been an easy inspiration.

Pure stealth games don't sell enough to justify development costs these days. Publishers expect AAA games to sell at least 5 million copies within a year. Making a shinier version of Thief won't generate those numbers.

Also, Shalebridge Cradle is from Deadly Shadows which was the most hated Thief until the latest one was announced. The Thief community is not open to change and will shit on any Thief that isn't exactly like the first two. They crapped themselves when Deadly Shadows replaced the rope arrow with climbing gloves and they crapped themselves again when you could only use the rope arrow in specific locations in the latest Thief. In order to justify a AAA budget, Square would have to streamline certain mechanics and make combat a more viable option, at which point fans would start hating on the game before it even came out. This is exactly what happened with Deadly Shadows and the newest Thief.

Square isn't going to make a game that won't sell 5 million copies and will generate negative hype long before release.

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.

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.

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.
