That Predator trailer was generic as hell and lacks any of Shane Black's style. Not at all encouraging.

Yeah...that trailer was about as vanilla as vanilla gets. Disappointing. This particular sc-fi franchise is such a mess.

Predators was solid, it had problems but was a step in the right direction after years of trash. Unfortunately between casting Olivia Munn and Benecio Del Toro leaving the production, this looks like its going to the dumpster.

The plot details just got leaked to reddit and seem pretty accurate based on the trailer, even worse than I thought.

Extra time wouldn't fix ME:A necessarily, it had fundamental design problems. Would've certainly smoothed out the launch day woes though.

A fundamentally social experience. So in other words, the most obnoxious monetization scheme possible. With EA I have zero faith that this will not be a shallow microtransaction vehicle.

Bioware better get it right, this could make it or break it for their brand credibility.

Pretty hilarious to criticize a company for outdoing you at an unfinished project. Yes Derek, we know you're the true king of these messes. There's your attention, have a cookie and go away.

Annihilation was pretty good. What did you think?

Nothing could do the books justice but they nailed a lot of the abstract elements pretty well. Only Netflix money can buy that kind of weird anymore, the other studios are too risk adverse. I still prefer the books but it was a worthy effort. I was disappointed they never explored the stuff with the lighthouse keeper/etc but perhaps its being positioned for a sequel one day, I'm not sure. It sort of ends as an odd mix of book 1 and parts of 3.

Most people who haven't read the books probably are scratching their heads after watching it though.


Yeah, I never read the books, but thought it was just a very atmospheric and beautifully shot "Heart of Darkness" journey. The cinematography and use of color was amazing, even if there were a few holes and inconsistencies plot-wise. I like blockbusters as much as the next guy, but it's nice to have some more intellectual, risk-taking sci-fi as well.

There's so much the movie doesn't touch on. You should really give the books a shot sometime, fantastic and fucking weird stuff. It gets crapped on a lot by people who want everything spoonfed but I loved it.

WTF?

Mark of the Ninja, Walking Dead, and Firewatch were made by 3 different devs: Klei Entertainment, I'm assuming Telltale, and Campo Santo.

Those are games that some of the devs at Campo Santo worked on previously. People move around in the industry

Oh no, unlimited time and funding for a good group of developers, what terrible news.

Unlimited time and funding sure, I don't know about good. I never played Mark of The Ninja but Walking Dead was really uneven and Firewatch was straight up bad in my opinion. I guess maybe I just don't care for walking sims.

If nothing else at least they will hopefully help Valve produce something again.

I'm waiting for the Switch version anyways. I don't understand why ports for jRPGs are bungled so much. This surprises me too, since playing the older Ys games from Nihom, the ports have been decent.

The PC gaming market in Japan is almost non-existent. Porting to the platform for them is pretty much new learning territory. Sometimes they contract porting houses in the west to do it but often they don't because business relationships in Japan take a long time to form and Japanese upper business culture is still pretty xenophobic.

A lot of their revenue is now being derived from the west though so you can see this stuff changing over time.

Radical Heights is the #1 game on Twitch. I give up. People are sheep.

Sea of Thieves was #1 on Twitch for its launch then banished out of the top 10 after less than week. The streamers like to showcase new games to keep people interested but usually go back to the tried and true.

We're listening to your feedback, no real plans but it's important that we continue listening and DO STUFF RIGHT!

Thank you for your shallow microtransactional choo-choo train that was derailed by the Battlefront II debacle, leaving nothing of substance behind. A griefer's paradise with nothing to do, going from over 100k streamers down to less than 10k in a single day. Way to go Rare.

I watched some gameplay vids at lunch today, but the game looks boring as hell. I have no idea why it's getting so much attention.

Microsoft dumped a pile of money on streamers and the lack of any other Xbox exclusives.

Their AMA was equally useless. "We are so excited to develop content at some point!" "We are looking at all of your feedback!"

It's not a very good game anyway, one of the most threadbare I've seen in awhile. You've seen everything the game has to offer after 3 hours then its repetitive and mind numbing.

Microsoft is really in the shit with their first party software. Sitting at a 67 on Metacritic, ouch.

It's news, of course he should report it. If people don't hear about this stuff its much easier for companies like EA to sweep it under the rug.

To the topic itself: star cards, crystals, crates, credits, milestones, challenges, jesus christ what a mess. When a progression system practically needs a spreadsheet to fully illustrate and explain it, you done fucked up.

How about the game just tries really hard to be fun and people play it for that reason?
