I am keeping my expectations of The Callisto Protocol heavily managed. It looks interesting but I'm honestly tired of games that look interesting being released in an execrable state.

What!?! How dare you try to keep your anticipation under control, or your hype at reasonable levels!? I already got three tattoos of Callisto Protocol related stuff upon my person!

*Disclaimer: I did not get any tattoos, but I am pretty amped up for the release. Hopefully it ends up being pretty awesome, and not too buggy on day 1.

Helicopter Controls: They are okay, I haven't found them significantly worse than previous BF games. I don't recall their exact status on release day, but flying with the present patch seems fine. If this sounds vague, sorry, I can fly anything in any BF game without much trouble, but I'm no ace pilot.

Bots Fixed? : How fixed do you want them to be; you can play solo matches and not be too bored, the bots are definitely not anywhere close to being the best bots in any game though. Pretty weak AI overall, but they will cap flags, use vehicles, etc. I have even seen them reviving teammates (on the enemy team, enemy AI reviving enemy AI) The friendly bot coding will preserve your vehicle(tanks etc.) if you get out to do something at a flag, it'll drive around nearby and defend itself. Pretty impressive sometimes, not so impressive other times, in terms of quality up close infantry fighting. The BF2042 bots are good enough for people to play a bit and get used to the vehicles and guns, etc. I don't see them as a long term replacement for live players and servers. Although you can play vs bots and unlock things. Higher level difficulty bots just get better aim, their movement as infantry especially remains the same. Strangely enough the bots can sometimes give the illusion of being pretty good in some vehicles, but mostly they will get stomped by any experienced FPS player.

There has to be a tradeoff to running 63(or 31?) instances of bot code, on these maps with these vehicles, vs the super bots of the Quake DM days.

BF2042 is actually pretty good right now, after a year's worth of patches.

Definitely more Battlefield-ish, although most matches are full of people just running around randomly, with no concept of team play or map control, or even basic math skills about how many flags to hold.

Hrm, Steam reviews for this game are not favorable for solo at all, which is a huge step back from Vermintide 1 and 2. I'll wait for this, and just play Callisto Protocol instead, a few days later.

Hrm, apparently this won't be showing up on GoG anytime soon, because of whatever Microsoft deal Obsidian agreed to.

I'll get this on a Steam sale I guess, but it'll be a shame to not have all my Obsidian RPGs(and medieval text based... murder mysteries?) on GoG together.

Looks like a live action translation of some anime or manga,or I guess manhua since it's apparently Chinese.

Maybe a little too gray in the color palate, I'll check it out if I get bored enough.

Much too basic looking for me. It's a shame that they were not allowed to make another project with the PoE engine at least. Fuck Microsoft.

They weren't allowed to?! I thought Obsidian owns all the rights to the Pillars of Eternity franchise, such as it is?

This Pentiment game seems like a palate cleanser for Obsidian, honestly, before they dive head on into Avowed. At $19.99 or whatever sale comes up, I'll pick up Pentiment and at least check it out, when it's on GoG.

*EDIT* Whoops, reading comprehension, PoE engine. Still, this is a studio clearing its throat, before Avowed and their other mega project(s).

The game looks gorgeous, from these videos. I'll most likely be getting Diablo 4 unless something ridiculously bad crops up before release, but it looks like it'll be a solid game so far.

The MMO-wannabe stuff... eehhh.. but it may be funny every so often to see people get obliterated by Open World monsters.

Well I guess I can't fault them totally, Horizon Zero Dawn is a great game and it has done incredibly well financially on multiple platforms but... yet another fucking MMO? Ugh.

I'm sure the potential dump trucks full of money had some bearing on this decision.

Hrm, a little more urgency for me to finish up the first game, then. I got pretty far along, maxed out most of the weapons and my stats, and haven't been back to it in months. That seems to be happening to me a lot more these days, level up or max out my character, lose interest in finishing the game.
Stay away from Skyrim...

I tried to finish Skyrim twice, years ago now. First time I had my SSD die, and never reinstalled it(and all my mods) on a new comp setup. Then I tried again from scratch, got pretty maxxed out, lost interest.

It's amusing: On a long enough timescale, most of the AA and AAA games I've bought in the past couple of years will be free on EGS at some point. I love that people are (in theory) getting the chance to play these games for free, video games are awesome!

More importantly: The Callisto Protocol is officially on sale, on EGS and elsewhere, I see an ad for it on EGS at the moment. Yeeeessss.....

Hmm, missed/overlooked this -- looks somewhat interesting. Watched a four year old video from a YTer I watch occasionally and it might require better fast twitch muscles than I have these days, but I'll consider giving it a try.

Dead Cells is *probably* the best of the new crop of Rogue-lite-wannabe-Metroidvania whatever games that have come out in the past 5 years or so, at least in my opinion. It does require some fast reflexes sometimes, but you can also play more strategic or at least ranged setups and do well. I found Hollow Knight and some of the other ones to be a little less forgiving than Dead Cells, and Dead Cells was engaging enough to me, for me to beat the game multiple times, through different patches.

Okay, this actually looks good, and I was just a little bit too young to really destroy this game in the arcades when it was out and I was a kid. I'll pick this up, most likely.

I finally got around to trying to play Mankind Divided, and I've been struck with some sort of corrupted save bug about 5-6 hours in. Apparently it's an unresolved issue, according to the complaints in the technical forums on Steam. I'm not sure I'll bother restarting, if there's no fix for it.
