  1. I don't know, pompous arrogant Sony can't be completely dead given their dominance this generation. Perhaps they are planning their own event unrelated to E3 to directly reveal the PS5 instead (Given I am almost always dead wrong with my predictions it's unlikely). The news is disappointing, E3 conference time has been like christmas for me these past 5 or 6 years but change isn't necessarily bad. Copying Nintendo and having a more frequent update with their customers with less "BE HYPED... ...for this major release in 5 years" could be good.
  2. Very unlikely but I hope it leads to something new in one of these franchises on PC (Dune preferably @gizmo1990 ). With Petroglyph involved there's reason for optimism but at best I think we'll have something akin to the Starcraft remaster (which was nice and dandy for preserving a classic and bringing it up to date but I'd love something with the sensibility and structure of a classic RTS with beautifully detailed modern graphics tech and shaders. (I never did really get on with Grey Goo, the setting just didn't grab me I think)

    Edge #326 | Devil May Cry 5

    It never ceases to amaze me how consistent this monthly thread is in producing a cavalcade of "They scored it WHAT?" responses. Talk of some kind of conspiracy is pretty dumb, from what I've played of RDR2 so far it's not a 10 in my book but is it a million miles away from one? Of course not so it joins a long list of differences in opinion I've had with the magazine over the years, as well as instances of common experience (LBP... a total 10 for me, what a lunatic eh?). All that said I received the only glorious Dave White cover that didn't interest me the other month (Halo) so I shall be cancelling my subscription via a hand crafted letter made of EDGE cuttings and dog poo naturally.

    Covers have been superb of late. Really good issue to flick through, looking forward to giving it a proper read.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    I only pre-ordered on the offchance of Vagrant Story. I think it's a pretty uninspiring lineup in the main but to be fair an inspiring lineup in my eyes wouldn't have been universal anyway.

    I've got both now according to the checklist ticking both off. My rabbit carcass is no longer in my inventory while I was hunting down a squirrel so it's that wonderful state of confusion of not knowing what's gone wrong. Is one of the ticks erroneous and my rabbit is rancid stopping me mailing both. Is there a quest I should have already done to unlock sending mail. This will be the 3rd of 4 sessions I turn it off wanting to launch the fucking disc out the window.

    I continue to veer wildly from wonderment to sheer hatred.. Taken ages to get this rabbit pelt for the first hunting request but I cannot find any way to initiate a mail to post it...

    I am finding it quite frustrating and vague in its systems. I just got shot down in my first duel because I was reading the tool tip and trying to relate it to what was happening on screen. This would be OK if some of this stuff was covered in the help but it isn't. In the main I feel a bit overwhelmed and directionless with it. Maybe I should focus on missions and open up more stuff. I do have a tendency to venture off the minute I'm let off an open world leash and then get fucked off when I seem to be missing things I need to progress my own aims (like the leather working kit I don't have for upgrades or the stuff in my inventory I can't seem to sell to anyone in valentine)

    Are you sure? I had one legendary bear pelt on my horse last night and a stranger specifically told me 'there's no room for me' after I'd offered to give her a ride. Actually nevermind.. By skins you meant the smaller ones that end up over your horse like blankets. Visually the bear pelt was massive so I guess you can probably judge it as you would in real life.

    It did arrive this morning. Fingers crossed you'll be opening yours too!

    My Simplygames account says "Shipped". I've not received an email saying its been dispatched however... Is it time to assume tantrum position and begin pouting? (Make other plans and have some patience!)

    I think about this constantly. It looks like the thing I have craved to get my hands on since I was five years old and sent a single A4 page of game design for a cat simulator to Amsoft!

    It's this sort of language that seriously pisses me off in the context of a contract. Can you imagine asking for it to be amended with similar vagaries in your favour that exploitable. "It is understood that you the employee may occasionally need to prioritise family commitments and personal issues over milestone deadlines". No way, you have clearly defined rules for sick pay / vacations etc but they put some bullshit in like that to cover anything from a 1 hour to 100 hour crunch per week (usually caused by poor scheduling and unrealistic targets).
