I played the original Crysis a year or two ago, it ran fine on my potato, but there was something just off about the proportions and scale, I could never put my finger on it, it just looked odd, like playing Just Cause or Far Cry through a foot of very clear water. The models and detail were nice, but there it was very uncanny valley to me.

Is uncanny valley the opposite? Meaning so life like it is uncanny?

The uncanny valley is the relationship curve between the like real and the indistinguishable from real. Basically the more human something appears is comforting, to a point, but past that point it just gets weird / uncomfortable. If you subscribe to that hypothesis that is.

I'm down for the updated graphics and all, but did they fix the AI or not?

I mean, I guess you can still chuck washing machines at North Koreans until... aliens, just now in 8k. Does that require much AI? I was never that clear on my characters motivation in the original.

I know absolutely nothing about Where the Water, but I have heard good thing about Railway Empire just always with the caveat that it gets old rather quickly. While that is a major concern in a retail game, it is a relatively minor quirk when the game is free.

KoA is a cash grab. That reviewers have positive verdicts for this remaster that should be 1/3rd of the price they are asking, is just insane. I'll actually use the reviews of this game to blacklist another huge batch of reviewers. For the life of me I can hardly see any difference between the original and this remaster.

That said, I have never seen any remaster worth their price.

I thought that the StarCraft remaster was worth its price, but it was also ~$14.99 right after launch (if it didn't just launch at that price, I know it was cheap enough to be an impulse buy for me anyway).

I haven’t been following this but it has been in the back of my mind as a “I really should try that if they do a remaster” title. I heard some good things about it from friends once it got cheap.

The description of the game is especially short

In all fairness, I think that is basically their entire website. Epic would have to start writing material for them to get anything more.

I think the ship has sailed on that F2P Summer 2020, but if they keep their nose to the grindstone they might still make 2020!

I really enjoyed Mass Effect. I even rather enjoyed 3, but I don’t know if it is a series I need to revisit, as least not yet.

It could be neat for anyone who missed out though, assuming they don’t muck some part of it up.

Google, Apple, and Microsoft are all walled gardens. The only platform of the three you can sideload applications on is Google's...after a bit of tinkering. Even so, for most people, it's still a walled garden.

There really is no one to root for here.

Google doesn’t officially allow that though, do they? I mean it obviously isn’t as difficult as a jail break on iOS (not that a jail break is difficult, small children do it all the time, just more so than side loading), but as far as the EULA / legalize on phones isn’t it the same thing?

At any rate, you don’t have to sideload on Windows and if you wanted to you can on Xbox, unless that has changed.

You can also side load on iOS in an approved way, though the software will only be signed for a limited time period. A week or two I think (it is intended for amateur developer testing) after which you will have to resign again. The main reason it isn’t more common is that most users don’t want to side load applications they have or can get the source code for.

As someone who owned and once made the decision to move a 38” CRT TV, because idiocy and youth are common bedfellows, pairing a CRT with a trackball makes my back and brain hurt. :/

Why the need for crossplay? Because it's trendy? Surely not to lower matchmaking time...

It may well lower matchmaking, but the obvious answer is so people can play with friends and family.

In the competitive Half-Life days people would have advantages because their budget PC couldn’t render fog or other effects, and some people changed their config on machines that could handle those effects just to get that same advantage. This was banned in league play, but was obviously just fine in PUG or random public server play.

Competitive play should be allowed and, where appropriate, encouraged. However, a core part of gaming has been, ultimately, getting to have fun with friends... I hope we don’t lose that in some all-or-nothing push for homogeneity.

First paragraph of the article, bro:

As a reminder, we measure monthly Top Releases by looking at revenue generated during the first two weeks after launch. We're also showcasing the Top 5 free-to-play games released in June, measured by total unique players.

Well, I did say that I skimmed, but I didn’t skip that. It says first two weeks of launch, many of these titles had launched before on Steam. The F2P is obviously pretty clear. :p

I feel like this must be mentioned somewhere, and I am just skimming past it (the dreaded curse of the mobile...), but ‘top releases’ seems slightly vague. Is this just new sales since the return, does it count past returned sales l, or is this counting active players?

"One week later, it looks like Microsoft is already breaking a big promise with Xbox Series X."

A bit off topic, but I just watched the latest Halo Infinite gameplay vid and you'd never know that the xbox series x is 4x more powerful than the xbox one x. It looks like the game was made for current gen 5 years ago. They're releasing the game for next gen (yes, I know it will run xbox one and pc too), so you'd think MS would make sure that one of their exclusives would utilize the power of the new console. I mean, it seriously looks like crap. What were they thinking?

It is on topic, you are just making the opposite point of that article. Though calling it an article is generous. It is all "it looks like", "probably", "which suggests", and "has ... telegraphed" so basically it is a click bait non-story.

It had a lot of issues, one of the biggest is eventually your quick hitters just got too good and made everything trivially easy, but it is worth a play. I hope they work out some of the kinks in 2, if so it could be a really good game.

Not sure why the trailer was poorly received. To me it just looks like a more recent iteration of the "Night Trap" concept.

What is the Night Trap concept? It was a bad FMV game that some people, who never played it (lucky them), tried to draw attention to so they could get themselves on TV.

It was basically the 'Mass Effect is hard core gay alien porn simulation and we know because we haven't played or even spoken to anyone who has played it!' thing of its era, except Mass Effect was at least worth playing.

This game just looks like trash. Oh, wait, was the Night Trap concept making a trash game? If so, I take all that back, you are spot on!
