What a terrible trailer. I heard good things about Elex - after a slow start. But I dunno my piranha bytes love never made it past Risen 2.

feels like the studio's just been coasting on "middling to mediocre" since then. spiders software has long since seized that plucky "check out what we can do with 25 people" crown.

still, super appropriate that this once-great developer of yesteryear puts out a trailer with a song by the lead singer of Korn, something about that just seems poetic.

Of all the top tier games shown, this was the least impressive to me.
The Back 4 Blood right after it looked way better. Also, That last game trailer looked great, too bad it's a console exclusive.
Hell, even the furry animal fighting game looked better than Stalker 2..lol

man i couldn't disagree more. this was the thing i saw that was most interesting so far, and the narrativized presentation was brilliant (especially for a game trailer)

control is worth checking out, certainly for free.

if you liked control and never got around to quantum break, check that out too; you can see the genesis of a lot of control's gameplay ideas in it, and the story and presentation are neat

Bad decision for whom? Certainly not the corporations.

This study never gets old.

Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence. The results provide substantial support for theories of Economic-Elite Domination and for theories of Biased Pluralism, but not for theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy or Majoritarian Pluralism.

that paper was savaged in a number of rebuttals.

"Cthulhu meets Saints Row" by Hangar 13 sounds fucking sick. mafia 3 was one of the best games i've played in recent years, extra surprising after hearing it ruthlessly shit on for years until i played it.

i got lucky with the exercise thing myself, there's a rich boomer resort near here that quietly opened their gym (normally only for people who own some property there or renters) to normies over the fall and winter in 2020 to bring in some extra income to make up for the lack of rentals i guess.

actually enforced mask wearing and closed every hour to clean all the equipment to make the boomers feel safe but the place was always deserted anyway. man it was nice being able to mosey in and get right on the bench or the squat rack whenever i wanted.

is this the first time Ken's name was prominently displayed on a game, rather than Roberta's?

it's been a while since i read Hackers but as i recall Roberta was the real creative while Ken busied himself with making unfortunate financial decisions.

still, i'll be interested in checking it out. sierra's games were a bit before my time, i've always meant to check out Roberta's back catalogue.

i was actually thinking the other day of making some kind of "white bad" bingo card after reading this article about "doomerism" on polygon that included the line "White supremacist extraction capitalism had already battered the globe before a pandemic arrived to exacerbate its worst tendencies".

this article also reminds me of the kotaku review of the ps5 that included an entire paragraph complaining that "an old white man" had won the presidency and wasn't going to change anything (too white), meaning we need to give up on elected politics and enact a socialist revolution. hell yeah gonna radicalize libtards into socialism with my luxury consumer goods review

like i know we had the whole retarded gamergate thing and then the 4chan alt-right bullshit, but the answer wasn't to become braindead reactionaries in the other direction, jesus christ.

the real surprise would be seeing an ubisoft game on steam again. after doing this with Division 2, they were harping in an earnings call in 2019 how they were thrilled by both the higher sales on their garbo storefront and the revenue guarantee terms from epic and saw it as a long-term positive strategy.

whatever the new watch dogs and assassin games were followed suit, now this. oh well, just makes it easier to forget their games exist.

its actually hard to believe they even have separate studios, the titles just kind of blend into a mediocre morass.

Well, they did release Hero-U not too long ago.

that was lori ann cole.

really were a lot of chicks running the board in the early days of video games. what an unfortunate reactionary turn everything took when loser normies got on the internet and were radicalized with the "anti-sjw" trash.

lost interest myself after avellone was cancelled, and the multiple reports on development being a mess. i am morbidly interested to see what shambles to retail though.

So people who recover from Covid are immediately immune? Concerning his own condition: Trump was right again?

the body of research indicates immunity from vaccines is more robust and longer lived than natural infection, and can ameliorate "long covid" - probably why trump quietly got the vaccine back in january, after being kept alive by millions of dollars of experimental treatments.

i like the idea of a more story driven survival game. i've owned subnautica for years but never got around to it; fair or no, "survival game" mentally translates to "fuck around cutting down trees game" for me. i'm going to have to check this out.

Was all excited for Stargate until I saw they had to wedge in a female commander. Politically Correct shit can go jump in the lake. Carter was awesome but Id rather have a guy lead or at least a choice like the Mass Effect series...

i always think its funny how dudes have this blind spot for artifacts from their youth (you know, before they were radicalized).

like imagine if commercials for stargate sg-1 with a female captain being fielded for combat dropped today. or if half-life 2, with a half black, half asian female co-lead came out today.

stargate is a cursed videogame franchise. a 60 second announcement trailer (for an RTS of all things) with no gameplay footage unfortunately telegraphs to me that the streak is not going to be broken.
