Reading this on twitter, my mind immediately went to a place where a new engine would be created for future Elder Scrolls and Fallout games. One that would have a decent interface, less jank, natively support VR and actively encourage such modding genius as SKSE/SkyUI.

Am I the foolish bright eyed naïve soul from my youth?

The show...I enjoyed it well enough, they changed a LOT from the comic, and to the detriment of the overall story in my opinion. The most important things in the comic got dropped. Inexcusable. That said, the show can be enjoyed on its own.
Hey Luck....what are the 'most important things' that they dropped? Enjoyed the TV series so far, and have been debating tracking down the books to read...so I don't have an opinion, just curiousity.

I was really looking forward to this.... Watching streamers it looks like the AI is janky as hell and you have to watch its moves in real time. Ugh...I don't have time to sit and watch 30 seconds of AI running into obstacles for every enemy action. Hopefully they can tighten it up in a patch and add in the option to display AI moves at 3x speed or something.

The overarching 3D map so that you have a good feel of the battlefield is something that has been sorely lacking from titles like Xcom. Glad to see that...

Good point on gamepass and MS is happy with that then so be it, so it will be hard for us to judge and understand. Unless you are a big Wasteland fan I don't know how one turns down the gamepass deal. Some say I want to own it a play it over again many times in the future. Well I can play it now on gamepass and a year from now get it much cheaper on sale.
Xbox Gamepass was the path that every one of my friends took on Wasteland 3. The only reason I can see to buy it outright was to use mods. I've read that all the Gamepass games will be severely limited with regards to modding.

I think it's free if you're on the Xbox service for PC gaming....first month is $1, so it's a great deal if you want to test drive it.

Flight sims, space sims, fighting games, and quite a few 3rd person games provide a superior experience with analog sticks and/or a controller. Steam's Input Support has made this soooo much easier for consumers. I still almost retch at the thought of having to use DS3Fix to play Dark Souls with a controller.

And the Steam Controller really is a great piece of hardware. It *feels* cheap because of the weight/materials, but the inputs and mapping are revolutionary. ...but that same complexity is what turns a lot of user off. Much longer learning curve than just plugging in a DS4 or XBone controller. It also works surprisingly well for turn based strategy games on the TV while you're on the couch or in bed.

A multi-million dollar corporation probably didn't put any thought into what they were doing but a person posting in a gaming forum understands how it works. And you are correct, only two people will ever buy games from them again. It was all for naught. Crazy Ucrazy
A person posting on a gaming forum understands that a multi-BILLION dollar corporation has a soul, is altruistic, and is only concerned with the common good. Whereas the multi-BILLION dollar corporation knows that acting in the interest of the consumer is **NOT** how they achieved their net worth. This is a simple triple X mid-term strategy to acquire market share and grow....it has nothing to do with the consumer.

You rail against Valve even though they have provided more tools and resources to advance the consumer market than any other gaming company. You don't champion GOG. But you beat your chest every time EGS comes up. This is either irrational bias, hypocrisy, trolling, or prime edgelord.

Glad to hear it! This is a nice step in the right direcion....I genuinely enjoy achievements. It reminds me of back when I was a kid on the NES and we would try to finish Zelda with just the iron sword or some other artificial limitation to make the game more challenging. For me, they add a second layer of challenging replayability to many titles. It can also be an interesting bit of insight when achievements indicate what percentage of the playerbase used X solution instead of Y.

But sadly, a year and a half later, despite all the Valve-hate and EGS-fanboy proselytizing....still a bare bones trash storefront with no shopping cart or gifting. The only thing EGS has going for it is free games from the fortnite money. I know no one pays attention to history, but this didn't work long term for Rome either. I think they will hobble along for many more years with Tencent buying higher percentages, but they will never try to actually build a community back end filled with features to serve their consumer base.

I have watched my sons watch other people playing this game .... and I don't see the appeal.
It's doesn't look all that great or fun , for more than maybe 30 mins...
It's a low stress PvP/PvE experience that you can do with a few friends. No high stakes leaderboard or redbull twich skills. Just sit around, drink beer, shoot the shit, and sail the high seas knocking out quests and hunting scallawags!

Glad to see they finally built out the game. This title was pure bargain bin material at launch. Seems like so many other titles have done this lately... Launch the skeleton and add the game content over the next 12 months. Sea of Thieves, Fallout 76, No Man's Sky, etc... On one hand, I think it is a piss poor thing to do to consumers (particularly early adopters)...but on the other, it means I wait a year, buy it for a quarter the release price and get the full (really this time) game.

I would buy a new SuperHot VR title on release day. One of my top VR game experiences in the library.

Maybe I'll give the flat version a go.

I'm not sure if I should be thankful that this Blues post didn't have a comment saying it's "OK to rape women in college, but everyone should grow out of it." It's surreal to see that actually written and an adjacent post saying that sexual harassment and rape doesn't really happen much. Crazy world we live in. Cray-zee.

A $150 Diablo bust and a set of wings marks the 20th anniversary? Wow... Maybe they'll do something interesting for the 25th or perhaps Activision is just illustrating that they have lost all connection to their target market? Remember when Blizzard was a company that made games for gamers rather than lootboxes for addicts?
