Good news imo. MS is in it to make/keep xbox/PC great gaming platforms. Zenimax is only in it for the next hit game.

I think MS will take good care of the studios they now acquire and I also think/hope they will push to develop more games / games that may not become huge hits but still be considered good (such as a sequel to Prey).

Also, if this leads the awesome idtech-engine to see wider use that is a huge plus in my book.

I don't trust Microsoft. I don't see how they can maintain that $5 per month PC Xbox Game Pass deal and continue to add stuff like EA Play and the new stream of games. I'm waiting until they jack up the price or bait and switch. Just like MoviePass was good until it died, I guess I will enjoy the PC Xbox Game Pass while it lasts.

What is it you don't trust? It has been clear from the start that the current price of game pass for pc is a beta-price.

The service will now exit beta and a new price has been set, which imo is exactly as expected and completely reasonable.

Whether it is worth it or not to is entirely up to you.

EA Play isn't very good for no other reason they virtually never add anything to their vault. It's been almost a year now and it's virtually the same list of games I started with. Meanwhile XGP is adding multiple new games weekly.

I agree that EA Play is not a great value proposition (unless you really like that catalogue), but game pass for pc including EA Play certainly is.

Pretty huge for Game pass for PC.

It is already a really solid offering, and while EA isn't my favorite publisher that's still a lot of games.

The game was fine, but many of the changes from 2016 were for the worse. 2016 actually gave you a certain suspense of disbelief in the structure and how you interact with stuff, but in eternal that is completely thrown out in favor of jumping around. I really do feel that they went too ham with the "supermario-elements". Some people love it (and a lot of people love mario, so no wonder) but I hated it.

A lot of small annoying changes combined to make a game I do believe will be less revered than 2016 in time.

I think I already paid for the expansions so I will certainly play them, but I don't see myself ever playing the full game again, unlike 2016.

Happy about that. Ozark is great and all great things must come to an end (or stop being great).

I also think that going into a season knowing it is final is a good idea. It opens up design space as well as setting expectations.

Fantastic news that the final season will be 14 episodes. Some shows taper down episode count towards the end, which leads to "action packed" but ultimately unsatisfying episodes, as exemplified (in my oppinion) by game of thrones last seasons.

I played through most of the first half of the game recently, and I cannot for the life of me notice any real improvements.

Not saying there aren't any, but they are not obvious in the trailer.

Either way it is going to be interesting to see if any progress has been made in nearly 13 years...

I also picked up control. Not anywhere near done yet, but absolutely loving it. More than anything it reminds me of Prey without the jump scares. The attention to detail and, the amazing art style, and the creepy atmosphere is very similar. I would also be very surprised if the creators were not influenced by Twin Peaks while making this. It has a few of the elements and definitely the atmosphere.

The combat is good, and the environmental destruction is amazing, but it feels like the game could be heavier on the mysteries.

Well that’s nice of them. I picked up Control at the start of the sale and I’ve finished the main campaign. It’s not that it’s terribly short; it’s terribly compelling.

If you won’t buy from EGS, that’s your decision. Assuming it shows up on other stores, I highly recommend Control. Its like Warehouse 13, but done with the gravity and detail focus of X-Files. They clearly spent a LOT of time world-building, which isn’t the focus of gameplay videos. Yes, you absolutely have a lot of giddy room-destroying combat, but there’s also a surprisingly deep world it happens in.

Epic have my utmost respect for one reason that is afaik unique to them:

When they made it big they took the money they made and siphoned it back into gaming.

You may disagree with how they are doing it, but while every other big hitter is sucking as much money as they can from gaming Epic are essentially "stealing candy from kids" (fortnite) and giving it to game developers (and us).

Gog is easily my first choice for third-party games, but Epic is a strong second.

Creative freedom and ownership sounds like a silver bullet here. Epic is getting serious, and I like it.

50M USD in revenue from october 2018 (when the game was already more than 3 years old) is very strong. GOG revenue comes in addition, obviously.

While The Witcher 3 clearly still is one of the best games in the genre and therefore has long legs I'm still going to assume that a lot of this comes down to the fantastic success of the netflix-series.

Anyway, I'm glad CDPR won't have finanial woes going into the release of Cyperpunk 2077.

I never played "xbox"-halo and I think a thick nostalgia-filter must be a requirement to enjoy this series on the PC.

I'm actually a little excited about this. It feels like there has been a very negative trend the last decades where success in singleplayer games has led to a push in multiplayer games (negative for me since I prefer SP).

I do play some multiplayer games, and while i do not play league, legends of runeterra blew me away with the incredible quality for an early beta / preview, so I am very interested to see how Riot can contribute in the singleplayer space.

Anyone played this?

How open world and open ended is it, compared to Sniper Elite 4 or Metal Gear Solid V?

Edit: They fixed the bug.

It's not "open world" at all, rather there are a list of missions that you will progress through. The missions are large and contain multiple objectives and challenges. The game is more like Hitman than for example MGSV in that regard.

As a stealth/sniper-game it is pretty good. There is less wackyness than in Hitman, which may be good or bad depending on your preference. I have not completed the game and there is a superannoying bug (in game mouse cursor) on the GOG-version, which I am unsure whether they have fixed or not yet.

Apart from the bug the game is solid enough. Not a masterpiece, but it feels more focused and refined than previous Ghost Warrior-games.

Sniping is pretty satisfying except you can't turn off (AFAIK) in-scope wind-adjustment even on the hardest difficulty, which is really odd.

Look up "valve time" before you go investing in HW.

Better to wait and see if the game ever releases, and if it is actually good.

My skepticometer is going nuts. It's not enough for the game to be good, it must be revolutionary. They succeeded once with HL, I don't think they can do it again.

If one does not love MGS there is probably no reason to be all that interested in DS. I never played MGS on playstation (because I never had playstation) but when I finally came around to playing ground zeroes and later phantom menace I realized how special the games are.

My theory is that one of the reasons so many people love the MGS-games is the unusual attention to detail. So, even if DS surely is a very different game from MGS I hope that the attention to detail will carry it for me.

Absoluely a must buy for me.
