I expect for Doom 24 even more jump and run and a hammer instead of guns to get the barrels out of the way that the Prime Evil Donkey Kong is throwing at you. Should be an interesting QuakeCon when they present this to the people.

So the - money - pressure finally got to Snyder and the Redskins are no more - or shortly will be. Saw a great comment where someone said they should change the name to reflect the reality of Washington DC and call themselves The Washington Grifters. "Redskins" always seemed to be more offensive than it was. I suppose its all in how you say it or take it. Poll after poll over the years showed most Natives really didn't care. If they were called the Whiteskins I wouldn't really care either. I'd just find it an immensely odd name for a sports team.


Someone posted this the other day: "Washington Redtails." A perfect mascot for the moment, and a kickass design with that P-51C.

They'll be fine as long as they don't got with "Red Scalpers"...

Sir Patrick Stewart: Class act! Always! I don't like the Picard series, though, but that won't stop me from respecting his life's work. I hope he sticks around and does not stop acting.

When shall I play this? I am currently deep into Fallout 5 am playing Rebel Galaxy Outlaw from time to time, want to play AC Odyssey next, want to play the Witcher 3 add-ons (never played those), pre-ordered that small cyberpunk game from a tiny independent studio , have FarCry 5 and FarCry New Dawn in my library unplayed (played a bit of FC5 but then got distracted by LOTS of work and somehow never went back to play some more), and many, many other games are on my pile of shame... DAMN! Which billionaire would like to get rid of a million or two to allow me more time for gaming?!

Will nevertheless buy WD Legion and FC6. I love the Ubi open world formula that so many people seem to hate nowadays - but then again, those games seem to sell well enough to allow Ubi to produce sequels.

If Amazon had humor, they would release it later as "Not So New World", but I guess the people working there are not having fun right now with the Crucible disaster and the obviously not so great first reactions to New World from the people that were allowed to play it.

As for outsourcing their IPs, Arkane was making a HL2 episode which was cancelled too and the only motive I can see behind this is that Valve was ashamed that another company would have made a good game with their IP while they themselves couldn't. So they stopped it and kept sitting on their Steam monopoly! I bet without the Epic Store they wouldn't have finished HL: Alyx...

This! They outsourced it and then decided that letting other studios work on HL is also not fun, so they trashcanned it.

Valve was dead for decades now. Alyx is either a reanimation or a late, final muscle contraction of an already dead body. I am hoping it is the sign of a reanimation. Make Valve Great Again! Make Valve WORK Again!

Only the turbo is +100 MHz? And you don't get the free cooler? AMD, Ryzen is great, but this is not really worth the extra money in my opinion. It is better to wait for Ryzen 4000.

Morricone - what a genius we have lost. He was such a great composer and had no problem standing toe to toe with even great directors when he felt they did not use his score in the best way. Ask e.g. Tarantino - he was called out by Morricone more than once.

It's cheap in Hong Kong. I guess the Chinese government paid some extra for it so it will keep people off the streets, right?

I'll buy it when it's cheap. I got plenty of other games to play and can wait for this to come down to about 30 or so.

Satisfactory is simply a very "satisfactory" gaming experience for me. It is kind of Zen - no pressure, play it the way you want, take your time, try different approaches and ideas. They still want to add a lot to the game that I've already spent 200+ hours with - great! But I'm a little burnt out, so I will wait for them to finish the game in a year or maybe two and will gladly go back to work on my next big factory. And it will be a Satisfactory experience again, I think.

Souls-like - the thing that happened after MOBA was the thing.
No, thanks. I do understand that people like Dark Souls with its superdifficult fights, but when I come home from work and am allowed to play a game for an hour or two (she is cruel, isn't she? ), I need something to calm down and have some - in comparison to work - easy success. If I want to stress myself, I just have to go back to work.
Thankfully there are also enough games for people like me.

Just remember, Japan is the country with the lowest birth-rates of ALL western developed nations. I am sure showing a cybernetic dingus would completely devastate those poor untainted souls.

Post WW2, the US somehow successfully instilled sex-shaming and weird Puritan-ish values in Japan. It's a tragedy. The nation has not recovered at all from that, and statistically is unlikely to, before their population dips too low to be sustainable as a country.

Is this why you can buy used schoolgirl panties from vending machines in Japan?

I doubt that Disney saw the light and will erase the sequel trilogy from the official canon. I doubt it. But I would love it to be true. The only sad thing would be that they wasted the great actors from the old and the latest trilogy with these absolutely horrible sequels. Then again - maybe the new movies will start a 100 or 200 years after the end of Return of the Jedi and Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, Chewie, are all gone but had a good life after what they went through during the war against the empire. And maybe some young Skywalkers are involved with a new storyline?
