The game could look no better than New Vegas and I would still play it because I enjoy their take on RPGs.

I'm not sure it even looks that good, but I'm with you on the second, gameplay is always king.

Uh, when's the last time you saw New Vegas?

Anyway, it's definitely not fair to compare this to Cyberpunk, when CDPR has around 4x the development staff and probably at least 10x the budget. Outer Worlds isn't fully open world, though, with Obsidian comparing it to a slightly larger KOTOR 2. So you could think of the size and scope as being more similar to Witcher 2, with multiple decent-sized but still self-contained and separate areas.

When did Valve buy a third-party game exclusive, because I honestly don't remember a single instance of it. Closest you come to an argument is that They bought out mod teams to build first party games (CS,Team Fortress, Portal, Dota2).

I honestly don't have a problem with first-party platform exclusives but what I take an issue with is 3rd-party exclusive timed or otherwise.

It's silly for him to imply that what he's doing is the same as Netflix producing an original series, or EA self-publishing.. Anything releasing exclusively for Epic thus far was already being made regardless of their involvement.

Pretty much everything screams Fallout 4 on another planet.

You say this like it's a bad thing, but a follow-up to New Vegas is the number one request that everyone else has had for Obsidian throughout the past decade. Since apparently they aren't allowed to work with Fallout anymore, a new IP was required.

Even if his Twitch popularity has dwindled, Ninja is the only one I've seen on a damned poster for sale in a national chain store, next to ones for Disney movies and popular bands, cartoons, etc. He's an actual celebrity, bigger than any one streaming platform.

Pretty sure console sales are still mostly physical discs.

What are consoles?

I will readily admit I did not actually think about them...

Yeah me either...

PC MASTER RACE. "Physical media? What's that?"

It's what saves you a 20MB download of the Steam installer.

News Comments > Piranha Games on MechWarrior 5 Epic Games Store Exclusivity

Satisfactory devs said they'd sold 500k at the beginning of June, after all the viral marketing jokes they made about it selling poorly. They had a lot more mainstream hype than Mechwarrior does these days, though, and were $20 on sale for two whole months. I assume MW5 is gonna be a full-price game?

Anthem released on February 22, 2019. Not a single mention of it in their Q1 Results. That's how you know it was a financial failure.

This is their fiscal Q1, which ends June 30th. February is Q4. So we knew it failed 3 months ago when all they said about it was "we launched a new IP," lol.

Dunno how any one could be surprised by that removal.. Decades-old casual agreements or secret homages, whatever the case may be, don't hold up in court these days. There's no reason for Bethesda to hold on to that trademark infringement liability. Besides, a cursory googling reveals it has been snipped out of some previous console versions as well, long before id was bought out.

News Comments > DOOM Eternal QuakeCon Presentation

7. Re: DOOM Eternal QuakeCon Presentation Jul 27, 2019, 20:25 jacobvandy
 
These presentations are for everyone to ooh and ahh over the visuals, they're purposely slow-moving and easy-looking for the masses. They've shown real gameplay with fast movement and twitchy mouse aim a few times before. Remember, the last game looked the same way in the previews and drew the same criticisms, but then it released and proved them to be largely unfounded.

All seeing this does is remind me of Interstellar Marines, a stupid awesome game that never came to be, probably since they just barely missed the Kickstarter gold rush.

Oh look, another handheld console marketing itself as a way to conveniently play all your illegally downloaded games of yesteryear... I swear one of these was just nuked from orbit by Nintendo not too long ago. Although that one may have had the games pre-loaded, whereas these guys are doing the whole tongue-in-cheek, "please only use this for homebrew" song and dance.

Very off topic, but this seems to be the most active thread:

There's a bundle on Steam right now for the 2016 version of Doom, AND Wolfenstein II the New Colossus for $24.

Also, holy shit, Dishonored 2 AND Death of the Outsider bundle is 12 bucks. TWELVE!!! Dishonored 2 is fucking AWESOME. (Death of the Outsider is so-so).

Prey is 6 bucks and is a great game. Bethesda must be feeling generous today!

QuakeCon is this week, I guess they started the sale early.

Combined years of experience is such a stupid metric.

You mean an EA studio having thousands of combined years of experience doesn't instill in you the confidence you need to smash the pre-order button for whatever they cook up? So cynical.

I hate it when they put 'Pre Alpha'...do you even know what a freakin' Pre-Alpha is? It's not a beta, which is what you're showing in the video. Pre-fucking-Alpha would be barely functional with almost no features or artwork, mostly just placeholders and duct tape to show what will be. This is nearly a fleshed out Beta. Empyrion does the same thing, we're supposedly up to Alpha 10 but the damn game is nearly complete.

=-Rigs-=

Blame the big publishers who let you play a multiplayer demo ahead of release so they can fine tune their balance and netcode... They call those things "beta tests" even though they happen two weeks before the game is out. It's not surprising that others have felt the need to use a different term, so that their actual beta is not compared to those.

Is Monster Hunter World worth $30 to try to play solo?

I really enjoyed MHW and played through the entire thing by myself. Some of the high-end monsters are tougher on your own, but it's doable as long as you put some work into upgrading your equipment and learn to play at least one type of weapon really well. The only thing that bothered me was the always-online, can't pause even in SP thing... Though that was about a year ago, I dunno if they changed it since then (I'm told it was never that way on consoles).

I want a Battle Royale mode, or GTFO.

Like I said, get a Switch. Game is called Tetris 99, it's a free perk with their online service. Literally you and 98 others competing against each other in every round.
