  • Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    I have such a backlog of games to get through, yet I want to purchase and start on The Outer Worlds.

    Need to hold off until the XBox Black Friday digital sale. Or next spring's Easter digital sale.

      Outer worlds is free with game pass. So $1 if you have never signed up.

        I avoided it at first because there weren't any games I was interested in, and there was a huge glitch where previous digital purchased games that were also available on game pass locked you out if the game pass account lapsed.

            Jedi Fallen Order plays a lot like Tomb Raider or Uncharted in that there is platforming and puzzles.

            It has a bit of Dark Souls sprinkled in. Save points where you convert xp earned. If something kills you, you have to go back to that enemy to regain the xp you had collected.

            Pretty fun so far.

              Pokemon Sword/Shield is a lot easier then previous entires. Your rival and the gyms are completely trivial. I beat them all with just 2 pokemon.

              The pokemon league on the other hand provides at least some challenge. Although you can out level that.

              Raid match making sucks. Really all of the interactivity stuff is poor.

              But the game is good otherwise.

                  Outside of Capcom's online connectivity issues, I've enjoyed the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World (pc).

                    Co-founder Dan Houser to leave Rockstar Games.

                    No worries everyone, it’s just the guy who co-founded the company, created and wrote its two biggest franchises. Nothing to worry about.

                        It's a worry about the future of the Rockstar series'. Houser has been the creative force driving the GTA and Red Dead series to where they are. There is a legitimate worry that the single player experience that has really driven the success of them will be downplayed or outright abandoned in favor of online multiplayer models (something that has happened at other companies like EA).

                          If it means the company will make more money, then yes. If it can be shown that good single-player games can produce the same profits as the 'games as a service' model then Rockstar will continue with games like RDR2. These games still have an online lootbox component that produces a metric crapton of revenue.

                              Disney says developers are free to use Disney IP in games. At the 2020 DICE Summit the Disney VP of Gaming said, "I'm here for one specific reason: to empower you to do really unique things with our characters." Leisure Suit Goofy?
