Curious if this will translate to Xbox Series X/S and PS5 as well.

That looks terrible. Hard pass.
Yea, pretty generic. IMHO Alien: Isolation was the pinnacle of Alien games. Nothing else captured the spirit of the original movies for me.

I loved the 2016 reboot, but Eternal sucks imo. Basic gameplay loop is 70% Painkiller, 30% platforming. I prefer Doom gameplay.

This.

Yup. This.

If these sales figures are true, it's another reason to grow bitter. Doom Eternal was the dumbest shit I've played in years. The rock-paper-scissors combat, incredibly ridiculous circus of a level design and non-existent story unless you read the fucking codex...

But apparently most people just want pew pew again. The Painkiller devs should capitalize on this asap.

Totally disagree. I loved DOOM 2016 and I worship ETERNAL. There are so few jump 'n run sequences that I can barely remember them and yet people complain about them.

I just keep my Series X on energy saving mode since cold boots times are fast and quick resume (usually) survives shutdowns. Valhalla just got a patch that made that work for example.

Doom 2016 was one of my favorites. I took a day off work to play Doom Eternal and I did not enjoy it as much. The kind of weapon combo system for me was a bit to much to think about. What actions generate health? What generates ammo? It became more like a fighting game to me than a straight up shooter. When I had the flow it was good but after putting it down for awhile I don't want to train back up. I can understand the direction and hope that others loved it but for me I liked a short, visceral and tactical shooter to the long drawn out combat exploration gyms of Doom Eternal.
This is exactly how I feel. I loved Doom 2016, but Doom Eternal just tacked on too many systems to juggle and think about. I can't get into a good flow like I did in the previous game and it's just not as fun.
That IS exactly how I felt on my first run and I hated the marauders. But after my second run it all started to click and I actually found the marauders enjoyable! Hell I even managed to off two of them in the expansion on the first try.
Now I can never go back to Doom 2016, it is just too slow and almost plays like a tutorial compared to Eternal.

Disappointed there is no save state function like the Xbox but other than that it sounds like a fantastic upgrade over the PS4. Can't wait to play some Demons Souls Remastered toot toot!
So there is really no quick resume feature? Too bad, that's the only thing a gaming PC can not do, holding like 6 games on instant stand by.
Will probably get a ps5 in about 2 years to play the interesting games.

They probably didn't think they needed it, when games cold boot as fast as the Xbox takes to retrieve the save state. One of the new features of the PS5 dashboard takes the idea in a bit of a different direction, with a system supporting any number of quick start points throughout a game. So instead of booting to the main menu, you could go straight to a specific level or (I'm assuming) your last checkpoint/save. It's more flexible than what Xbox does, but the trade-off is that it would have to be supported by each game for the full effect, whereas quick resume just works with anything.

Of course, there's nothing stopping them from implementing a more similar feature with an OS update, but I'm not sure they will. I personally do not see the need in maintaining custom save states for multiple games at a time, especially when most modern games perform frequent autosaves (if they aren't always-online and would just boot you off anyway for the stoppage), but I suppose it could come in handy for that deep library of Xbox relics that weren't designed in the same way.

They probably didn't think they needed it, when games cold boot as fast as the Xbox takes to retrieve the save state.
Ist that a fact?
Update: For last gen games, the XSX seems to be a bit faster when it comes to loading times, which is odd since Sony was supposed to have double the SSD speed? But nothing here is optimized yet.

Looks like just another six degrees of freedom vehicle shooter that have never had a large audience.

The original went nowhere, why does anyone think this (same thing just more pixels) will do/be better.


The original "Schleichfahrt" (Archimedean Dynasty) was awesome back in '96.
The sequels were never really able to capture that same spirit again imho.

Step by step, Microsoft is moving away from the console market and moving closer to becoming a games service provider. Maybe one more hardware console in a few years, and that will be it. I think this is a wise move by MS: instead of making a bigger walled garden to counter Sony's walled garden approach, they just give up the walls and sell to every platform, resulting in a much bigger, broader market for them. Why not offer future Halos in a few years even on the PS6? Let others do the hardware work and get a bigger share of the software market. I think this is Microsoft's plan for the next years.
This is the Microsoft strategy since Satya took the reins.

Have fun testing this Alpha testers!

On that note, is the game (so far) any good? Do you think it will live up to the hype? (Please no spoilers) Thanks.
I played the prologue yesterday and here's my take:

  • Intro CGI sequence is awesome
  • cool char generation embedded into intro
  • graphics are very good, nice transition from cut scene / dialogue to game world and back
  • art style seemed good where Original Sin was just too "cartoonish" for me
  • combat was easy to pick up
  • some nice skill checks / decisions in the first hour, not sure I want to see the D20 die roll, though

While I swore to myself to never touch a fantasy RPG again after Witcher 3 (it was just too good) I actually want to play this now.

From Polygon:
Star Wars: Squadrons is every inch the spaceflight simulation that fans have been dreaming of for a generation. It accommodates players in extraordinary ways, from the quality of its many controller options to its ability to form parties across multiple platforms. It’s also one of the most focused games that Electronic Arts has produced in the last 15 years.
