These were amazing games in their day. I tried playing them on GoG and they're kinda rough now

"Fallout 4 Fans Are Begging Bethesda To Stop Updating The Game."

Yes, both of them

"Nobody is forcing diversity into video games. It is happening naturally, as players and developers themselves diversify."

The whole point of the DEI consultants talked about in this article is to push changes in games to increase diversity. Sometimes these changes make sense, sometimes they're idiotic. There's no single answer to if these efforts are a good idea or not, as it really depends on how they are implemented.

Edge Studios, the people behind Legend of the Five Rings, a samurai role playing universe inspired by Akira Kurosawa films, consulted with a DEI group (https://www.legendofthefiverings.com/asians-represent/). Some of the changes absolutely make sense, as do cultural notes about being sensitivity to other cultures.

On the downside, they have been doing things like replacing the word "katana" with "long sword" about half the time in Adventures in Rokugan. They've stated that in future products aren't going to use the word honor nearly as much, because of a false historical narrative that because the version of Bushido that the west was familiar with was only written in English in 1899 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushido:_The_Soul_of_Japan), that there wasn't a concept of honor or Bushido before it, which is nonsense. Hakagure was written during the Edo period, and talks about the proper conduct for a samurai, and earlier samurai had been idolized for their way of living, like Minamoto no Yoshitsune. What's worse is that doing things like replacing "katana" with "long sword" isn't even accurate - A) they're not the same weapon, B) the fighting style used with them is different, and C) it's whitewashing Japanese culture. Ditto replacing "kimono" with "robes", "wakizashi" with "short sword" and the other terrible changes that is just handling the cultural sensitivity issue in a completely insensitive manner.

Rogue Trader is buggy? Sure, a bit. Not that bad.

But it is a really, really good game.

The original Subnautica was a masterpiece. Subnautica Below Zero was just super bland and boring.

I am cautiously hopeful for Subnautica 2, but I'll be waiting to see how the reviews go before early accessing it. Learned my mistake with BZ.

Disney trying to ruin video games the same way they ruined Marvel and Star Wars (with some very few exceptions).

I played this for a couple of hours (since it's on Game Pass) and I was left wondering why in the world this game is as popular as it is... But, now that I come to think of it, I always think that about the insanely popular games. I just don't understand their popularity. There are so many games that are far better but sell far fewer copies.

In Pokemon, all you can do with your Pokemon is fight them against each other. Maybe a Lapras will let you ride it. That's about it.

In Palworld, they do all sorts of things. My base just got set on fire, and was burning down without the fires going out and I couldn't figure out what to do. So I brought out a water Pal and it ran over and sprayed water on the burning buildings and put out the fires. Other Pals you can fly on, or use as flamethrowers, or gliders, etc. But most are used economically in gathering, crafting, and building. You get a limited number out in your base at once, so you have to think about what combination of Pals you want out at once.

I just took a tour of New Homestead, which took like literally half an hour as the guide slowly walks around and shows you various points of interest.

I was waiting for like an explosion or some raiders to attack or something, but no... it just finishes, you get 200XP and that's it. Lol

I'm loving Starfield.

One of the best RPGs of all time, I just wish they'd release an official 64 bit patch for it. Or even better, an official remaster

So that's why it has been on my wishlist for so long.

I'm not interested in spending $30 on it, oh well.

I backed it, and tried it. It is one of the most boring grindfests ever. Rather than being revolutionary, it was just an even more boring version of WoW.

As I told them earlier, I have no interest in a subscription model.

Also, their song list is anemic.

I spent a lot of time playing Outward. It's a deeply weird but interesting indy game, that is actually a pretty full fledged RPG.

Daggerfall is the best Elder Scrolls game of all time, I super wish they'd do a cosmetic remake of it, without removing functionality. It had the largest world, the best magic item crafting system, the best spellcrafting system, and so forth, in all of the Elder Scrolls series, and was released in the mid 90s.
