This guy pretty much made Elite and Frontier Elite 2 (such a massive part of my childhood) all by himself!

I am so happy he is raking in cash! Much deserved

Has there ever been a reasonable/successful port of a mobile game to PC? I mean, I am struggling to think why someone would try...

Perhaps Peggle.

I gotta say... I expect GTA to be abusive towards every race, sexuality, religion and gender. That's one of the appeals of the game, just how ridiculous it is!:D

Sadly this game has suffered from Pandemic Game Developmentā„¢. Simplistic gameplay (a hallmark of the Lego series) is one thing, but this is Ubisoft level of lazy and badness

Perhaps the other episodes are better? In the original Lego SW games, Phantom Menace was also the most boring entry (and movies some would argue, too).

Wait? What? Why??

They make amazing Lego games! What happened?
EDIT: I found something from Polygon - apparently work culture / crunch and the usual 2020s game studio stuff of bad workplace experiences:

As someone who doesn't read the reviews because by the time I get to buying a game it's been out for years and I know from word of mouth etc, one major advantage Epic launcher has to Steam is this: seemingly every single time I start Steam, something is syncing, the program needs an update or SOMETHING with adds is thrown in my face. When I start the epic launcher, it just opens and I get to play.
The Epic launcher is just much less intrusive and in-my-face as Steam's. Ymmv.

The next one's gonna be woke.
Arguably they've been woke since GTA4?

Not really, and some of the characters in GTA5 are insanely non-woke, if anything.
I do feel, however, that if they steer too much away from the over-the-top stories GTA is known for, to become softer and more PC, it will hurt the reception of the game with its fans much more than messing with the gameplay formula ever will. Reviewers would love it though

Since Greelight was abandoned in 2017, Steam has lost it's mind or doesn't really care anymore.

Tons of unplayable garbage accepted and sold as games and kept even when dennounced as scams, and the valuable ones lost amidst the glut.

They are coasting to a terrible decline, yeah. Coasting with lots of cash, mind you, but Steam is not the best gaming platform around anymore.

I may be a bit out of the loop, but all this yelling for heads and change... what exactly are the aggrieved suggesting Activision Blizzard do? I mean concretely? I've yet to see anyone speak about this, it's mostly just a lot of noise and "we won't take it!", which is fine, but much better if there was a "... and here's what we can do about it in the long run" added to it.
Firing Bobby Kotick won't magically make the workplace different. A culture change needs much more than that, but knowing a little more than "he has to go" would be a start imo.

I was disappointed in this.
Mainly because there weren't the same amount of urns and barrels I like to normally smash, but simple quality-of-life fixes like autosorting inventory and other things Diablo Project has made normal aren't implemented. (https://www.projectdiablo2.com/)
The new intro is too long as well, just too much fill and too little substance.
Dude, it's the same game so of course same intro lenght (see side-by-side here) and yes same number of barrels, urns, etc. It's literally original D2 under the new look with only a few QoL. They didn't want to go the route of Project Diablo or Path of Diablo, purists will like it that way.

After years of not playing D2 I started playing Path of Diablo two months ago to get ready for D2R and I liked the extra onbody inventory space and runes stacking and a few others QoL I would have liked to be ported on D2R but I won't be upset because of this. Auto gold pickup is great though!

Fair points. Wow, I didn't realize the intro was that long originally. Nostalgia rose-tinted etc. I still feel there were way, waaaay more stuff to smash in the original

Fantastic news! Game list isn't the greatest though...
Pinball Fantasies was far, FAR superior to Dreams
Cannon Fodder
Robocod
Lotus
Lost Vikings
Lemmings

... need to exist on this system. Perhaps Monkey Island and Superfrog too, and... I better stop

That said, Simon the Sorcerer and Chaos Engine are classics, and Zool, Alien Breed and Battle Chess are all right.
