A tropical setting sounds cool. I just hope it's not more of New Dawn with the upgrading and enemy levels. It didn't feel balanced at all and that whole thing just annoyed me. Even the lowest level enemies were massive bullet sponges and upgrading the base was just bleh. I found Far Cry 5 proper to be a million times more enjoyable. I really liked that one and the setting.

I had always hoped they would go back to an African setting like in Far Cry 2, but this time have more going on in the world. It was too empty, the checkpoint system was frustrating and barely any good NPCs. A re-do of Far Cry 2 would be cool. I could have sworn back then they said they would do more with the African setting.

I liked Far Cry 5's setting a lot. The weapon's were kind of odd at times with the damage. But over all I liked that one and it's one of my favs.

I didn't like New Dawn much. The leveling up things I found to be more annoying than anything and the enemies were too hard to take down, even the lowest level ones. I really hope the new Far Cry is nothing like New Dawn.

I'm excited to see the C8 Corvette starting to appear in games, in this case the C8.R. Hopefully the C8 Stingray will be there too.

Whoever thought adding it in would go over well is clearly out of touch with PC gaming. Sad coming from id of all companies.

Now that they are removing Denshito, now we need mod tools. Since Megatexture is gone, it should be more reasonable to do. If Valve can release mod tools for HL:A, I don't see why we can't have them for Eternal. Having an editor and SDK like the good ol days of id games would be so awesome. There are some things that really bug me a lot with Eternal that didn't with 2016, so I would definitely dig into modding if that came true.

I'm glad they left the classic Mafia 2 alone and didn't force an update to the definitive edition, like they did with Mafia 3. I also didn't realize until Blue mentioned it that since I have Mafia 2 already, I get the new one for free. I'm probably not going to download it though because from what I can tell, it doesn't look THAT much different. You can also see in the trailer that some of the character's eyes aren't looking in the right direction. Kind of weird. So I'll stick to the original.

The remake of Mafia 1 sounds and looks quite nice so I'll be picking that up. I should play the original in the mean time.

"bring the game closer to Doom 2016."

This is very good news. While there are many things I liked about Eternal, overall I like 2016 a lot more. I have not played Eternal in about two months or so and I'm only at the start of the 4th level I think. Two things have really turned me off.

First, is the platforming. I don't like platforming in a FPS and it definitely does not belong in a Doom game. To me it's frustrating and annoying. In 2016 the amount of platforming was kept quite low where I didn't mind it. But in Eternal it's cranked up to 11. This is probably my biggest issue.

The second thing is the ammo issue. They give you low ammo on purpose to force weapon switching just for the sake of it. This is stupid and bad game design. I should be able to use whatever I feel is necessary for me in the current situation. Or if I just feel like using a certain weapon for a long time I should be able to, just like in 2016 or the classics. I liked how the classic Doom games let you have a ton of ammo so you can just blast until there's no tomorrow. But having to use the chainsaw constantly (which is a shame that is nothing more than an ammo generator) and scrounging for ammo every 10 seconds is very off putting and takes me out of the game. So most of the time I'm freaking out over having no ammo or I'm getting frustrated over stupid Super Mario style platforming and I feel like this is making me ignore the environment and everything.

So while this mod can't fix the platforming, at least it seems to do some other things that makes the game the way it should have been from the start.

hopefully this will send a message to Apple and they start to support Vulkan


If anything this would send a message that they need to support a wider range of GPUs, of course I don't realistically see that happening. I don't see them giving up on Metal for Vulkan, when they accomplish the same thing and Apple has complete control over Metal. For developers though, there is MoltenVK which is a Vulkan to Metal wrapper. This allows Vulkan apps to be compiled for Mac OS, iOS and iPadOS and it's an open source project.

The Digital Foundry review is definitely the one the most worth watching, as usual.

I have the limited run physical release for the Switch ordered and will be downloading it on Xbox One X and PC through GamePass tomorrow. Woot!

If it comes to Steam at some point, I'll get it then. Otherwise, I may grab it for Xbox One X during a Christmas sale later on. I figure by the end of the year, 50% off should be do-able.

Mafia III sucked...Could not get into it at all...

Same. At first when I picked it up I thought everyone was wrong about it. The graphics looked great. The animation was dope and the shooting mechanics were generally really well done.

It's just missing something that grabs you. Maybe it was the location or something that I couldn't get into much at all.


I felt the same. I think it was from the character you play as being not likable at all and the fact that he's not an Italian mob guy, which made no sense to me being that the game is called MAFIA and the previous games you were an Italian mob guy. Although I could have over looked that if the character had a better personality, but the way he was made me want to kick his ass. I did like the setting of the 60's though. It was very disappointing to me that you didn't play as Vito again. It was cool they put him in the game, but not playing as him annoyed me, especially how Mafia 2 ended.

Mafia 2 on the other hand I loved to death. I played that game over and over. The setting and characters worked for me so well. According to steam, I have 81 hours in that game. Whereas with Mafia 3 only 6.

I will definitely pick up a remastered Mafia 2 on the PC and Switch.

Its just a first person platformer now (for blind people, since all possible ways are marked with different colors). Most of the time youre just looking for secrets for pointless easter eggs. The rest is so brainless and repetitive, it looks like a $0.99 DLC for the last one.
Even the "music" is extremely annoying now.

From NPR 2 days ago....

"So far this season we've had between 30 and 40 million illnesses in the United States," Martin says. Of that number, about half were ill enough to seek medical care, and between 300,000 to 500,000 people required hospitalization.

The CDC estimates that there have been 20,000 to 40,000 deaths in the United States so far this year.

Just for comparison, that's a thousand times more deaths in the United States than have been blamed on the coronavirus so far."

At this no one bats an eye but everyone's freaking out over C19? Yeah. Sure. Ok. Rolleyes

I have a hard time believing that you are serious here, but on the off-chance that you are...

The issue is not with "how many people are currently infected". Of course that's considerably lower than seasonal colds/flus that have been around for years. The issues are how fast this spreads, and how high the mortality rate is. Normal flus have a mortality rate of around 0.1%. Covid-19 has a mortality rate somewhere in the 3-5% rate. Should we get the 30 to 40 million people infected that you quote from the seasonal illness, we would expect between 900,000 to 1,400,000 million deaths. That is a *lot* more serious than the 20-40K deaths from flus.


Heh, you're really comparing the two percentages? That makes no sense. The data set for flu vs C19 is wildly different. You'd have to normalize the data, then take percentages before you can compare. Do this and you'll find a very different outcome. Of course the percentage of C19 is going to be higher when the total number of infects is low. This is basic math.

The truth is, C19 is not that strong. It does not spread any worse than the flu or anything else. It also mainly attacks elderly with conditions. It has been shown that the more healthy and young you are, the better off you can fight it. The flu kills both old and young and the symptoms you have with it are severe. Most people with C19 have none or very little symptoms, other than the already sick. This thing only appears to be some massively bad thing that "spreads fast" because the dumpster fire liberal media are making it look worse than it is. They are constantly reporting, going on and on about even a single new infection, and trying to use it for political gain. We would have far less problems, if it were not for the horrible mainstream media. You can make anything look very good or very bad if it's presented just right.
