EGS is slowly releasing everything I've bought on GoG for free.

This game is very depressing. It's well done of course, but I have yet to finish it; people struggling just to live is a bit too serious for my builder-strategy mindset.

Slightly off topic: one of the freebies is the entire Batman Telltale Games series, although it does require you to install the Amazon Games client. Yes, yet another client!

I somehow didn't have those though, on Steam or Gog.

There was a global manhunt for this guy? Sheesh. Although, what do you expect these days, running a distribution site for warez of any kind, let alone something with worldwide appeal.

It's a little curious the DICE guys even brought in CoD people; I mean yes they have had a ton of success, but BF series is the other end of the spectrum as far as shooters go, or at least it used to be. I guess newer CoDs have vehicles now? I am like 10 CoDs behind I think.

I assume EA was mad that Battlefield was only making Battlefield level money, not CoDBlops level money.

What the hell, I have never looked at Prime Gaming before, there are 11 free games there, or game series, and some cosmetics currently. What are the penalties/fees/whatever negatives of Prime Gaming? I tried to open my game codes (while logged in with amazon) and it asked me to "Activate Prime Gaming" which has me a little leery.

*EDIT* Ah, it wants Twitch and various gaming service accounts linked. Maybe not for me then.

*EDIT 2* Ah, no linking required, just included with Prime. Battlefield 4 key: C2ZR-FJVC-VQC4-LFW8-EZPW

*EDIT 3* Ah, all the rest of the games require the Amazon Gaming App installed.

BF4 is (in my opinion) the best Battlefield game. Maybe not mechanically the best for some, but I definitely had the most fun with it, of any of the series.

If BF6 can somehow capture that feeling, it'll be great, but I'm probably way too jaded now.

... and the reviews are... not great.

Sounds like it needs a few months of patches, but not too surprising considering this studio's last game.

Why do mosquitoes buzz in our ears?

Given that mosquitoes track the CO2 we exhale, I wonder if a mask would keep that from spreading as far and result in fewer mosquitoes tracking you.

Body heat, sweat, the color of your clothes, your smell, they all attract mosquitoes to you, in addition to the CO2 which isn't even going to be stopped by any mask anyway. There is no escape from mosquitoes!

Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet with neighbors

Just what I want: to be responsible for my neighbor's internet usage. Gonna suck for people on data caps.

People will be lucky if it's just the data cap, and not somebody using their wifi/internet service to look some horrific shit and get them put on a watch list, or earning them a visit from law enforcement.

Never have open or even guest Wifi at your house or business, unless it's heavily filtered, even then it's just not worth it.

Wait. A EGS exclusive for Windows? Doesn't Ubisoft have their own on-line game store?

as word is: it's coming "on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Uplay, Uplay+, Epic Games and Stadia."

Yeah, the wording is a little off, it's NOT on Steam/GoG, but is on Uplay in addition to EGS.

I already had this on Gog, got it on Steam for library padding.

This game... is gorgeous, but I was not too fond of the controls. I should go back and finish it at some point, just to see all of the art.

Hrm, looks like an updated version of gameplay that I can usually enjoy for 40 hours or so, plus a few performances by Giancarlo Esposito? I will definitely get this, although probably not anywhere full price, like I've done for all of the Far Cry games.

There are some great artists working on these games at least, just need to tone down the 'gather 900 snake skins' portion of these games a little.

Loved the first game, and this looks awesome. Except, with him being infected, I really hope there isn't some mechanic with a countdown timer where you have to deal with "turning" every so often. I hate that micromanaging nonsense, this isn't a survival game. Ah well, if there is, I'll probably just hack it out like I did with weapon degradation in the first game (another awful mechanic).

It's been awhile, but there was an infected plot device in the first game too, or was that Dead Island? It didn't come up too often, except in a few plot checkpoints basically. I'd really hate an actual timer too.

As Acleacius said, these guys weren't too keen on mods for their previous games, but I had an anti degradation mod too in DL1, that kept getting broken by patches. I suspect I'll use the same sort of thing for this game when it becomes available; weapons simply broke too fast to even be realistic, let alone fun.

I reinstalled this... it's definitely better than previous versions, but the AI still feels mildly useless. Setting up Sync shots is easy but at least for me, way slower than just shooting everybody yourself, even trying to keep stealth going. The AI teammates aren't bad, but it feels better playing solo, to me anyway.

I feel like I should like this game more, it's very polished, and the gunplay is pretty good, the world looks gorgeous, but it's still sort of... bland somehow? I don't know, it's missing something. I couldn't finish the main campaign missions last time due to boredom, not sure I'll be able to finish them now either. Ennui, thy name is Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

So anyone else remember another big game that had a ton of press media, interviews, etc and ended up shipping as a complete mess?

Pfft, we won't get burned THIS time!

Seriously though, even if they just take the combat/movement system from the first game and make new maps, I'd still buy it eventually. It looks like they've added some cool stuff to both systems, so I expect to at least enjoy the combat grind, even if the story ends up being complete shit.
