  1. I know that's supposed to be a joke, but I genuinely believe they're doing that. I mean, the Thanos farm was one of those goofy things and they did that! I bet he even has a little Thanoscopter he flies about the farm.

    Shenmue 1&2

    It's even more of a frankencode nightmare because Shenmue is clearly based on old tools from the Saturn era (i.e it makes no use of Dreamcast hardware features like mipmapping), and the Saturn had no first-party dev tools, and Sega first-party games were developed with rather spotty version control, and little was archived.

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    I don't know why people are sceptical this larger audience exists. Something like Fortnite had 78 million players last month, League of Legends 100 million, both of these are free. You can count on one hand console games that have done that well with a box cost and requiring a box under the TV. It's easy to see AAA games follow that mould with a Netflix type service, throw in some cosmetic DLC and obviously you're not going to make as much per user, but you'll pick it up with scale. They're already partway to stuff like this with Ubisofts "starter editions". This negative reaction feels to me mostly about grumpy old men who don't like change.
  4. It has a wikipedia page now I don't think it's supposed to be funny, I think it's for porn.

    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    To be fair, i'm glad they're not doing the rumoured Suicide Squad 2 in the Middle East.

    Edge #325 - Settle your scores here ;)

    I don't really agree with that, aspects like exploration or narrative aren't reducible in the same way.

    XCOM 2 - War of the Chosen

    I kind of fell off this after release, but I'm quite interested in this new DLC they've released. It's free until Dec 14th, if you have the "War of the Chosen" expansion, which is also on sale. XCOM 2 Tactical Legacy Pack is a successful experiment in quickfire campaigns A more arcadey XCOM that doesn't take 30+ hours and still keeps a story focus sounds great, and an avenue I'd like them to explore with future projects.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    At the risk of starting Destiny arguments across two simultaneous threads: that's called Destiny.

    I'm just saying, even if Destiny had kinda wonky gameplay, it'd still be almost entirely as big. Hey, we have to go back a bit to find AAA games that were deficient in gameplay for reasons Majora said earlier.

    Every post about it I've seen on here has been "it was a bit good, really, wasn't it", because phat lootz

    But you can have loot games that don't have great base gameplay, that are deficient on every level from animation, art, combat, etc, and they still get highly rated because of that skinner box. Like Too Human.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Yeah, but that's not actually about the game then, is it? It's about your psychological hangups. "Why can't you just not do that", "Well I don't have the self control, we should remove the option from the game instead". Nah, fuck that. Like we get those criticisms in a bunch of games, like the insistence that you must be forced to walk everywhere in Elder Scrolls and they should remove fast travel. Stop trying to make games worse because your brain is broken.

    I have fully played the game, it is aggressively mediocre. Also I've reported this post because you're getting unnecessarily abusive.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

     So how does that affect you negatively? I mean, you can set the difficulty way up. I play on Expert with the assists off, and tend to restart races if I don't come first.

    Rllmuk's Official Sales Figures

    No, because they're not sales. Previous games like Sea of Thieves that were on GamePass they mentioned "number of players" rather than numbers of copies sold.
