My prediction: console players are going to opt out of this rather than have to give up aim assist and this feature is DOA.

I don't have a solution for them. Perhaps: go back in time and stop Halo (or whatever console game first thought up aim assist) from ruining console FPS for generations to come?

I think the only solution is to rip off the band aid and get rid of console aim assist completely in future FPS that want to be cross play.

Want to play on console? Plug in a mouse and keyboard. Still want to play with a controller? I hope you got good aim.

I remember when Quake first came out there were still so many keyboard-only players from Doom that still stuck to keyboard-only in Quake as well. I've seen a few who were still quite good even though they had to have a look up and look down key. But I never heard of a keyboard-only user crying about lack of aim assist. They stoically picked their preference and made the best of it. Joystick users need to accept the limitations of their preferred input mechanism and stop relying on the game helping them.

I am going to assume you didn't look into the Crossplay FAQ...PC players won't see Console players unless they group with other PC players. The Crossplay is more for the different console ecosystems than to integrate into the PC one. This is further reinforced in that the competitive side will never mingle between console and PC.

I think a private citizen should be able to donate their money to whomever they want without fear for their personal or economic safety. Yeah, even when they are Trump supporters. That's how freedom works, it's a two way street. If harassment for his political ideals is what is causing his retirement, I think that is a shame. I don't like the games and I don't like Trump politics....but I can't help but feel that it all is more destructive than constructive.

I know that there is a flip side here, and I get it. I just don't believe the country can be anything other than at each other's throats if "harass until you go away" is going to be the modus operandi. Stop spending money on his games, okay. Harassment? People are just psycho.

I mean, I don't think literally anyone outright cares to whom he donated his money to, however, there's the little part where said person claims to embrace and cherish a disenfranchised group of people while simultaneously financially supporting the people that are actively doing the disenfranchising.

If the guy wants to throw his money away supporting something, that's his choice, it's when he funds the means to disenfranchise groups while simultaneously saying that he wouldn't be where he was without the support of those same groups. It's like saying you are advocating for a cleaner environment while simultaneously driving a 1970 Lincoln Continental.

That's a hell of a whataboutism to leap to...I mean, one doesn't have literally anything to do with the other but here we are...

As for the so-called 'crisis', gross hyperbole from you notwithstanding, a very vast majority of illegal crossings are blocked and expelled, with some 65% of them being Title 42'd.

Never played any of these, can you play them with keyboard and mouse or do they essentially require using a gamepad of some kind?
In my experience, they are pretty playable with M+KB, the biggest issue is that you aren't going to have the fine control over the car as you would if you used a controller. Alas, outside of the Drift races, most of my experience with the game is it's easily accessible with a M+KB as it is with a controller.

It's a pretty good, if fairly unforgiving, city management game. So if that sounds like it's your type of game, it's a good one...and at free, you have nothing to really lose.

Probably not no, since you're still trying to say that comic book style can't be dark. They are not opposing and you have failed to explain why you think they are. Mixed messages would be the game saying 'the world is dying' and yet showed everyone as happy, relaxed and content.

Why precisely would I not expect comic style effects in a kung-fu brawler wherein I play a mouse-thing running around with silly cobbled together scrap for weapons? Why should I expect that something in this graphical theme could only address silly topics and not something serious and dark? Where does this idea come from that you cannot portray dark subject matter in anything other than a dark and gritty film noir style? It's nonsensical.

Watership Down, Secret of Nimh, The Dark Crystal... they all had animation and silliness in them but addressed very dark topics and no one decried them for mixed messaging.
Your examples at the end all fail in comparison....none of those films had the Adam West-era Batman effects whenever a fight took place. Never once did I mention that dark/gritty couldn't have light-hearted aspects..I said the using of the tongue-in-cheek comic fight action prompts in this way is jarring to the rest of the game's aesthetic, which led me to say that I don't think the game knows what kind of game it wants to be.

If it was sold as "hyper-realistic" and wasn't, that would be poor form. But that analogy doesn't translate in any way shape or form here. The game was not billed as 'dark eco horror only' nor was it billed as 'cute, animated brawler' only. These are not opposing concepts, and I fail to see how they are 'sending mixed messages' in any way shape or form.

Everything about the game, from media to actual descriptions explained that the world was a dark, post-apocalyptic one, so my original analogy fits. The concept of an ecosystem overrun with mutants and literally dying is also pointing to a darker aspect. This also isn't helped in that the actual gameplay is not exactly where you'd expect comic style effects to take place simply because it seems a bit out of place.

So if you cannot see how mixed messaging is taking place here, well, I'm not going to get you to understand.

For the few hours I played, I think the biggest issue is the game really doesn't know what to make of itself. There's some gritty dark bits, but then in fights you get the "WAM BAM" comic prompts while attacking...the moral compass choice aspect seems interesting, until you're given the ever-increasingly vague prompts that sometimes don't exactly match the tone you're going for, giving you the opposite effect.

Saw this complaint in one of the reviews. Not sure I get why people assume that a game must be entirely dark and gritty or entirely comic-book style silly. The whole idea of, "It must display only one theme or it's wrong!" is just goofy logic. Enjoy it for what it is, or don't. It doesn't need to conform to a specific style.
I never said it had to pick one over the other, only that it seems like it's giving mixed messages on tone of the game. I mean, honestly would you find it a bit jarring to be playing a game billed as hyper-realistic only to have several moments where you're punching holes in tanks? The only point I am trying to get across is that it sends mixed messaging over what it wants to set the world up as, a dying ecosystem overrun with mutated creatures, but when fighting it gets all colorful with the comic fighting 'sounds'.

The game, itself, is fun, if a bit same-y to other open-world games, but I think the tone messaging is all over the place. I like the hazard biomes, mostly, and the requirements to safely venture through them (except the radioactive ones...looking at you nuke plant), the enemy variety is a bit lacking but nothing too detrimental, and the story isn't bad, just a lot more exposition than I would've hoped front-loaded on you.

I feel this kind of camming goes against the spirit of the Twitch community and that's why I'm mostly against it. But I think part of my distaste for it comes from my prudish side. I'm guessing that Amouranth started out streaming games like everyone else, then moved to Just Chatting and exercise, then to just sitting around scantily clad. There's several clips of her exposing herself floating around on the net, which has earned her temporary bans, but she's always back because she's a cash cow for the platform. Twitch keeps what, 50% of her earnings subscription earnings?
So yeah. It's against the spirit of what Twitch is supposed to be, but if I don't like it I don't have to watch it.
Amouranth never really started as a video game streamer, she's literally been there from day one pushing the 'meta' of "how far can I show something before getting caught". Now, that's not to say she didn't play video games, but you'll notice how her style of streaming went...

She'd play X game, but the game was inexplicably in a window smaller than what she showed herself in, while wearing something that was (at the time) pretty low-cut and 'ok'. Fast-forward a couple months and you'd see her wear something progressively more provacative, either in how much it covered or how it was cut. Then she'd progress into "sub goals" causing the whole "oh I have to bend over to write your name on this whiteboard" thing, which is still around today. After that, it became a cat and mouse game where she would do something just slightly more crossing the line, if Twitch took action then she'd dial it back one step...all the while, hundreds of other female streamers were doing similar things creating the sub-genre that birthed the 'hot tub meta'. Look up STPeach for an example of someone that didn't follow this and just jumped right into overt content.

Personally, as someone who has been on Twitch since the JTV days, I've seen it all in some fashion. The problem Twitch has is, like I said, inadequate and uneven enforcement of their own rules. People like Amouranth, STPeach, and others that can gather thousands of viewers don't really care about the concept behind Twitch, so they'll do whatever they can get away with just to push people to their real bread-and-butter things like Onlyfans. There are quite a few instances where if you weren't pulling in "the big bux", then you aren't allowed the same acceptance of content. If you're male doing literally anything similar to this, you're given the boot pretty quickly. Hell, there was a streamer about a year ago who attempted to lampoon this whole thing by literally doing exactly the same things Amouranth did but in male attire...he lasted all of 2 hours before he was banned because he broke a sexual content rule.

There are arguments about how people are being prudish because Twitch allows hyper-violent games, but at the same time, Twitch is being their own prude in that they won't allow hyper-sexual games to be streamed (dare anyone to stream Hunnie Pop) or games that have sexual content that is considered a main attraction to the game. The point is this, it's not prudist(ism), it's the desire to have things looked at equally amongst the entirety of the community. If you're going to allow sexualized content from REAL people, then allow (legal) sexualized content involving digital people...if you're going to ban it from digital, ban it from actual people as well.

But whatever, Twitch will do whatever they can to make numbers look good for Amazon, else Amazon comes in and changes it.

(Edit: I'm going to point out that I don't blame people like Amouranth, she's a shrewd businesswoman who knows exactly how to maximize her profits with the least amount of effort, and I applaud that, I just think that content like that should be on platforms specifically for that.)

For example, in 2019, according to national FBI stats, somewhere around ~16,000 people were murdered in the US by criminals. During the same year, according to the same stats, it would appear that 7 (seven) civilians were killed by police in the line of duty.

Did you stop and think about this for more than a minute before posting? I can think of more than 7 law enforcement officer deaths in 2019, let alone officer involved shootings with civilians, of which there were probably hundreds. Feel free to walk that back or edit in a silly ass wink to your post before someone who has more time than me starts googling the actual stats.

I mean, you're talking about the person who fundamentally doesn't understand what "defunding the police" means, I wouldn't expect them to actually investigate factual information...

I personally don't care if someone wants to pimp themself out like that for money, hell if I could wear a skimpy bathing suit and sit in a hot tub for a few hours a day and make that kind of money I probably would, but I did wonder why this was allowed on Twitch. It seems more like something that should be on PornHub.
To expand on your first part, most people wouldn't have that big of an issue if it weren't the sole purpose of the stream to sit there and funnel money from the notoriously easy 'marks'. That and Twitch's inability to rationally and equally enforce the rules. Imagine, honestly, if a guy were to do literally anything similar to this on a stream, they'd be almost immediately banned. Hell, you really don't have to imagine much, Twitch has already banned people who have done the exact format of "Hot tub streams" but since they don't draw in tens of thousands of viewers (see: huge names on Twitch), they don't get the same equal treatment.

Just as SOE is slowly undoing exclusives to increase profits.

Console companies (Microsoft and Sony) don't consider the PC when they talk about exclusives. All they care about is it not coming out on the others consoles.

You also have to consider that Microsoft basically has exclusivity ingrained on the PC.

The wording of it, about being exclusive to where ever GamePass is, has me wondering if Sony is going to break down and take MS up on it just to make sure they have access.

I think one of the biggest draws to the game is something most people don't really even notice, the more realistic building experience. You actually have to be aware of strains on building materials, even in inclement weather. You can build pretty much anything, but you have to be cognizant of integrity of the material you use and maximize the space without totally sapping your available resources.

I mean, most of my circle of friends I play this with are all pretty much focusing on building ala Minecraft/Sims style. Building some of the most lavish structures I've seen while trying to keep things from getting higher than yellow on stress. I even have one who is currently on a treehouse kick.
