Offshoot topic: I played through Days Gone, almost 100% completion as far as achievements etc. and the writing was the weakest part of the game.

Oh well. Mechanically though I thought the combat in Days Gone was pretty good. I thought that was a completely different studio and team than The Last of Us though? Where are you guys reading they are involved in some way... just in the PC port?

The Last of Us PC version is supposed to come out in March? I am planning on picking it up, finally. I do not have any modern consoles.
Not sure how you can say it has bad writing, the game has multiple character arcs that intertwine around the MC's own struggle which goes in interesting places. About the only real problem with the writing is that some of the settlements (mostly in the first area) are kind of under developed.

Well, good/bad is subjective, I thought the writing was mostly serviceable, until the end of the game, where I felt the quality really dropped off. It was the weakest part of the game to me, in that the rest of the game was good or even very good. It shouldn't matter too much if the Days Gone team is involved in TLoU PC port, they won't be doing the writing anyway.

Warhammer TV.... god those greedy morons. 115,000 subscribers means you are just holding shows hostage at this point, that you could have licensed out to streaming services with much bigger audiences, and gotten much more exposure.

Syama Pedersen's show is going to fucking die on that network... if not for helpful ship captains.

Dead Space 2 is one of my favorite games, all time.

If somebody somehow still doesn't own Dead Space 2, and I know there will be plenty of young people who missed it completely, then hooray for them, for getting a chance to pick it up for free.

Aim for the limbs, nubs.

Looks good, classic Kang always had the most potential as a villain, I'm interested to see what they really end up doing with him, although it doesn't look too promising from the trailer(as far as really going crazy with Kang time travel). Also looked like a M.O.D.O.K. in there for a second.

This trailer looks pretty damned true, thematically, to a lot of the old school comics, honestly. I want the MCU to go so comic book nerdy that they kill their own success, basically.

I'll never get over how people who ignored or outright hated comics as a kid watch this stuff now and don't see the contradiction.

Wow, that game is that hot now? I didn't think it was that good when I tried one of its free weekends.

It's okay. I bought it, played it mostly solo, which is pretty boring honestly. Probably much better with a full team of friends, or at least cooperative randoms, but none of my usual coop people really wanted to get into it, and random matches were too aggravating to me.

The combat is mediocre at best, the mining is basically any survival game's resource gathering, with your nose in the resources. Then you run back to your ship, which you can make easy or hard on yourself depending on how you mined/dug holes on the way in. Repeat. Ad nauseam. Just not for me, but I do congratulate them on their insane success,which I have to assume is based off of people following streamers or something? The game just isn't great.

Weeelllll.... I'm still pretty hyped for the show; it's being made by a lot of the same team that made the Chernobyl miniseries (docudrama?) on HBO, which is/was AMAZING, one of the best shows I've ever seen.

If they can capture half of that in the Last of Us show, it'll still be one of the better shows around, on any service.

Hrm that article is fairly optimistic... only a 5C increase in temperature? I am sure humanity can do way better than that! They'll probably go for an even 10 degrees celsius... gotta burn those fuels and keep the ultra wealthy gaining money at obscene rates!

That and kicking the problem down the road for the next generation to deal with... cue the Predator arms in air handshake meme.

Even lower drop rates than regular PoE, and less crafting? Rofl. This game just keeps moving more and more to the no-lifer/streamer side of gaming with every update.

Masochism in games is way out of hand, in my opinion.

*As I peruse the Classics sale: "Oh nice, an Atari bundle of remade classics... might make a nostalgia purchase here.. WTF, $53.49 on sale!??"

Come on, 'Atari.' That's well outside what anyone is going to pay for arcade remakes from 35 years ago. 40+ years ago in some cases?

Okay... look. I get it, you are great at the game. But for fuck's sake, stop making the hardest bosses look so easy.

*EDIT* Wtf, looked at it again, she actually beat Malenia with her dance pad first.

I was extremely interested in this show, and I'm most likely going to get the PC release of the game(s) starting in March, but what the hell, the coverage has gone into full overkill mode. I can't even watch any more of these.

I sure hope this Apple stuff gets off their network eventually, because I really don't want to give them money.

Agreed, and not just because I dislike Apple as a company. The balkanized streaming networks are basically worse than cable was, with one or two great shows each, and zero sharing. Makes me want to just cancel every streaming service and...get into sailing.

I'm sure this will be buggy as hell on day 1, but I'll still be sorely tempted to buy it on release day. The potential for this game should be off the charts... especially once the mods start coming out. They aren't pulling some weird bullshit to block mods, right?

Starfield, Diablo 4, I am probably going to give in and get both on or before release day. Sacrilege, I know.

Well, getting unbiased information from Youtube or most social media is practically impossible these days, and this one seems especially hyperbolic. That said, Tik Tok is pure cancer, and Tencent is without a doubt under the sway of the Chinese government, who is without a doubt waging economic and information war on literally every other nation on earth. They aren't alone in this, but it's foolish to pretend that it isn't happening.

Twitter, Facebook, X Social Media Client, are all about as bad, of course. I recommend not using any. I even get nervous posting on Bluesnews though, so your opinions may vary.

Bleh, much ado about nothing, in my opinion.

People should just stop using Twitter; very few people are as funny as they think, and jokes tend to fall flat for the vast majority of people, in pure text form. Then you get people trying to stir up shit based off bad text jokes, and the rage cycle continues.

Lol, $9.5 million. Not even a rounding error for Google/Alphabet.

The rest of the settlement is more encouraging, but I doubt Google will change much anytime soon.

The only “wtf this is hard” fight was malenia, who is optional. The others were pretty in line with past games.

Pretty fair assessment. I beat everything but Malenia, but that fight basically made me lose interest in playing further.
Let Me Solo Her did it naked wearing a kettle-hat.

Yes well, you see, Let Me Solo Her is actually good at Elden Ring.

I feel like I could probably beat Malenia eventually, if I practiced a ton, but I really enjoyed using summons vs basically every other boss, and Malenia just heals off your summons. So it'd be solo and no summons, and that seems like an obscene time sink, for me at least. I got bored/annoyed and moved onto the rest of the queue of games.
