Why do these games continue to sell so well? People really seem to enjoy playing basically the same game with a fresh coat of paint year after year don't they?

What a bunch of bullshit. There's all of exactly TWO things that the community wants and has wanted since the beginning...

Landing on Earth-like terrestrial planets and walking around on your ship while it's moving (and slightly less, walking around the stations that you dock to

Please speak for yourself. It is hardly "the community" that wants space legs. Many people, myself included, could not care less about walking around doing nothing. That's not what Elite has ever been about. Wrong game. Elite rightfully focuses on the space ship CMDR gameplay. There is A LOT (fucktons upon fucktons of potential) that they could and should add to the space game. "We" do not need another layer in the form of space legs that lacks content and just adds more timesink.

Yeah, I'm also of the opinion that I really don't care about space legs. I'd much more prefer additional content or making the current systems a lot more feature robust. The game was released nearly five years ago and we still have to rely on third party websites to find basic information that should be freely available in-game.

Unfortunately, if rumors are to be believed, space legs are exactly the area of focus for the next paid expansion. I don't really understand what it adds to the game other than one and done eye candy. They better have some substantial content and purpose to go with it.

..making games on the service more responsive than even those on PCs and consoles.

Who does this guy think we are? Idiots? Nobody is going to believe this claim unless the game starts playing itself.

I haven't played either game but from what I've read about Dark Souls I wouldn't pick it up. I don't hate Dark Souls. I'm sure many players enjoy that kind of thing I just don't care for games that are overly frustrating. I've thought about picking up Monster Hunter World though. I hadn't heard it was similar to Dark Souls. If you're saying it is then I guess that's another game I'll skip.

The games aren't that similar beyond having to strategically fight tough bosses. Monster Hunter is challenging but not aggravating like Dark Souls. If you're defeated in Monster Hunter you don't lose any progress and it usually takes a very short time to get back to fighting the monster. I felt that MH was definitely worth the purchase whereas I never had any fun playing the Dark Souls games.

Should I be excited for this? Will this be a top quality game?

Judging by that trailer...no, not at all.

Man, who to trust when reviews vary so wildly?

IGN: "a high-point for the series and the genre as a whole." - 9/10

PC Gamer: "Between the bugs, the extended non-jokes, the self-aggrandizing jabs at game design trends, and a few cameos I won't spoil but that made me audibly groan, Borderlands 3 has a lot in common with Gearbox fan events as of late. There's a lot of loud, extended posturing while holding what everyone really came for hostage. It's a shame, because Tales from the Borderlands found a delicate balance of absurdity, self-awareness, and genuine heart. A better Borderlands is possible, it's just not Borderlands 3." - 63%

On Metacritic you can see that 60% of IGN's reviews are higher than the average and 45% of PC Gamer's reviews are lower than the average. Take the average of the two reviews and that's probably a better representation of the game's review score (7.65 but I'd probably round it up to 8 since PC Gamer's score is probably a bit too harsh).

"EVERSPACE 2 is an open world space shooter with classic RPG elements and persistent player progression, as well as many more player ships and significantly enhanced storytelling."

This is exactly what I was hoping the sequel would be.

Well, the game runs a hell of a lot better than it used to (using a Radeon card). Unfortunately I was only playing 10 minutes before the game crashed. Looks like I'm not alone in that regard either. I don't think I care enough to try to play again.

They are all morons Cutter, they think removing a gun or taking away a game and using it as the scapegoat will fix this problem, the real issues are in the home. It all starts there with the parenting of their kids and discipline. This is the real issue at hand and until its looked into and fix, this will never go way.

Seems like you're entirely discounting the role nature plays. In any sizable population there's always going to be psychopaths and those inclined to use violence. Also, there's very little parents can do once their child turns 18. You could raise a perfectly behaved child, but once they turn 18, and if they decide to go down a dark path, what's a parent legally able to do? Parenting can't and doesn't account for all of people's behavior. Even if you could change all parents into great parents, it would certainly help but it's not going to 'fix' the problem.

On the topic of video games once again being the scapegoat, it seems different this time because I've seen a great deal of pushback to the idea of games playing a role in violence. It's been refreshing to see that coming from large newspapers and prominent journalism.

Their games are only worth purchasing to me after all the patches and the season pass content has been released, i.e. whenever the gold or ultimate versions go on sale.

So in the end you do buy "UBISHIT" and "Ubi garbage." It's okay to admit that you actually do like some Ubisoft games. You won't ruin your malcontent image if you do. Also, are you aware that most of the games on Uplay+ do include the season pass content and all of the patches?

So what is the author's solution? Every WWII game set in the Western theater now needs a mission where, as an allied soldier, you discover a concentration camp? Or perhaps every German soldier you play needs to have an inner dialogue about how they feel terrible fighting for the Nazi cause? Perhaps the author desires something akin to the Call of Duty airport mission where you play as a German soldier exterminating an entire village. At what point do you demonstrate the culpability of every German soldier?

I can understand the viewpoint of the author, but to expect every WWII game to explore the dark side of the Wehrmacht would be hamfisted and forced. EA never claimed BFV was historically accurate and everyone knows this. Games, first and foremost, are meant to be fun to play. Most are not designed for deep storytelling and the exploration of the darker side of humanity.

El Pit wrote on Jun 10, 2019, 13:16:
I would have already bought it but a looong backlog of games and the wait for a feature complete edition made me resist.

I wish companies would sell the game and add stuff later for free. This DLC nonsense and season and year passes just make me buy games later and cheaper.

I felt the same way until recently I realized that I don't even enjoy much of the DLC that is released for single player games. Most of it is tacked on side-quest/adventures that aren't even integrated into the main storyline. Once I finish the main storyline I find it difficult to care about anything extra that is inconsequential and not of any value to me finishing the main game.

Oh well, I guess I can still wait for a deep sale on the Cyberpunk GOTY to give them as little appreciation as possible.

So, no different than any other game for you then? It's really hard for me to understand people who endlessly complain about a hobby they invest so much time in. Try being positive for once...it might actually feel good for a change.

The Xbox Presentation was really well done, for anyone that didn't catch it, I'd recommend just watching it in it's entirety.

I concur, it was a great presentation. There were so many previously unannounced games shown off I can't even remember them all. Keanu Reeves and Tim Schafer also provided a good laugh.

Also, I was very happy to hear that Game Pass Ultimate includes their all new PC games library as well. Game Pass Ultimate is a such a good deal considering how many games are available to play and all of Microsoft's games are available to play on day one of release (unlike EA/Origin Access). I'm not one to buy consoles on release day, but considering how much value I've gotten out of Game Pass, I'm planning to buy the next generation of Xbox in 2020.

Just another no name dev making a budget quality title unworthy of the the license and overcharging for it.

Why can't the owners of the IP ever give the license to someone who is competent? Oh I know, because the competent devs don't bid as highly to get the license and then after bidding so high to acquire the license, they have a low budget to actually develop the game and we get low quality shit like this.

When a new title is announced for a beloved IP franchise, everyone should immediately look at the pedigree and reputation and previous titles from that developer. And temper their expectations accordingly.

Totally agree. Boggles my mind, because it just keeps happening over and over! So many shitty games, except for the stuff from Relic, Space Marine, perhaps those turn-based ones (never got into them), and Total Warhammer...

It's Games Workshop we are talking about here. They are probably taking an unreasonably large cut of the profits which most large publishers and developers scoff at.

I was hoping that if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass you get it for both Xbox and PC, but that doesn't sound like the case. With Xbox Game Pass subscribers can already play Microsoft's newest releases on the PC so that better not change when this launches.

I've definitely gotten a lot of value out of Xbox Game Pass but I don't think I'd pay for an additional one for PC. There's just too many games to play and I don't have time for even more.

What are your specs? My machine is almost 7 years old and it runs great at 1920x1200. Gtx670.

i5 2500k, radeon 580, 8 gb ram. The game is by far the worst performing game game I've played on my PC. When I approach space stations my fps will dip down to 10-15 and when I'm running around on planets it's usually between 25-30.
