A first-person shooter with no guns and a fantasy game with no swords, players will instead utilize a variety of more than 40 ter'angreal — magical artifacts that grant incredible powers. These spells range from simple offensive attacks like fireballs and magic darts to more complex effects such as swapping locations with an enemy and short-range teleportation. These artifacts can also be combined and chained together for devastating effects.

So... it plays like the mage in Hexen?

Does this mean the Russian tank bias will finally be addressed? For those that haven't played, the mid and high end gameplay is routinely dominated by Russian tanks because they tend to have the best soft stats(moving accuracy, for instance) that don't really have much to do with hard stats(armor and penetration values), but make playing those tanks that much better/easier.

Even if it's legit, it's not much more than a curiosity to the amateur enthusiast. A myriad of laws protecting corporate IP exist for this very reason.

It could just present some ways to have custom drivers or modified DLSS dlls for individual games to do certain things(or fix up games that have been abandoned, like many of the custom quakeworld executables that have come out to improve the graphics since it was opensourced). I wonder if it could be used to enable cheating in a way that avoids current anti-cheat tech

We know you may not be able to afford, much less find, an RTX card in your area but please accept a chance of getting a GeForce RTX Keyboard Keycap as the best the 7th largest company in the US can do for its worldwide customer base.

It's a valid criticism. That said, for me, buying prebuilt avoided all of the problems finding and affording an RTX card. Doing some comparisons, it was far more time and cost effective to buy prebuilt and upgrade individual parts that aren't supply constrained, or plagued by market speculators, than to hunt for the RTX card I wanted at a reasonable price.

MS finds out all the talent has left the building already.

As always, media acquisitions these days are about intellectual property rights.

Microsoft will be acquiring or creating a film/television studio (once again) sometime in the future to compete with Apple and Sony. Sony's turning their gaming properties into valuable movie franchises and Apple is doing alright with Apple TV+. You don't spend the money on these acquisitions if you don't have plans to monetize them, and those plans probably have little to do with the dev studios or the talent in those studios

So....any honest reviews of this game? Like, seriously this game is like the posterchild of the Sony Playstations. It's supposed to be the be all end all game, all i see is a beat em up game.

Lol I don't get it either! I keep watching gameplay vids while heavily biased toward wanting to like what I see but I don't somehow. To me I can hardly explain why not though. It's like the game has a reverse X-factor and I just won't like it even though it checks all my boxes.

Gameplay is solid, boss fights are great in typical God of War fashion. That said, the story (and immersion) is what the game is about and what makes it great. If story isn't your thing and you just want another FPS, this ain't your thing(and you would probably want to stay away from first party PlayStation games in general)

Something about Sony now that they got my attention. I had zero interest in their exclusives but since porting them so well, I said, why not. So far Days Gone kicked my butt. Turned into one of my favorite games of all time. I next went with Horizon Zero Dawn but although graphically beautiful, the acting is pretty weak in comparison to Days Gone and it's been rough to keep my attention. I'm still slowly trudging through it hoping it picks up significantly at some point. I think the same could be said about Days Gone where it starts off pretty mediocre only to turn into an epic experience.

I went into the first two not knowing jack about them and that worked great for Days Gone. I'm hoping HZD shows me something soon. I imagine God of War would be similar. I don't know anything about it though knew a co-worker took off a day from work to play the sequel when it came out, lol. I thought, well, it must be good... I'm just happy Sony finally came around to doing this. They have to be extremely satisfied with the extra sales on older titles.

Hrm, really? I had heard lukewarm reviews of Days Gone, plus it apparently has some annoying DRM issues.

I bought Horizon Zero Dawn on GoG, the complete version, and I am really enjoying it, although I did peter out a bit in the DLC area, and got distracted by some other games for awhile. Opinions will differ of course, but I'm a little more interested in Days Gone hearing that you liked it more than HZD.

Days Gone is a fantastic game that was sunk by a bad initial release (since fixed) and a slow first act.

I can't imagine they could do this for an even remotely reasonable price, but I really like the concept. It's entirely possible to do all of this today DIY, but there are so many hoops to jump through as well as potential licensing type issues with VMs etc. Having a large company wade in could help with the software side of things, and maybe if they don't make a product out of it some of that may hit open source.

This is where linux comes in handy and why it could potentially be very useful for what Valve is doing with it for PC gaming in general. You can look at what's been happening with the server world with tools like Unraid+Docker, which are inexpensive outside of the hardware. Conceivably, you'd have a server or cluster of computers that had several discrete GPUs that you could pass through to VM/sandbox instances and allocate resources as necessary across a span of users.

The industry needs to find out a better model for licensing. Music, historical footage, a person's likeness, whatever. It's ridiculous that game experiences need to be adjusted because of an expiring license, and if Konami can't figure out this license, that will likely happen here.

and there were plans to experiment with playable Zerg as well.

I'm down with a modern version of AvP, with the ability to play all 3 species. Protoss subbing for the Predators of course

I’m so used to most people being in my general age range here that it actually surprises me when someone isn’t familiar with some of these older game franchises.

Really, you never played Age of Empires? It’s only 24 years old. Beam

I barely remember what I ate yesterday, let alone if a decades old game had good campaign
