RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS


Recommended Posts

In the grim darkness of the very near future, there are only live services.

 

There is still GOG, and thousands over thousands of hours of games available with no online component. Enough stuff to fill my hobby for few lifetimes.

 

EA, Ubi and others can shove their live services in The Place, where the Sun, Never Shines...

Best way to enjoy games: stay away from the internet.

 

Amen. Especially stay away from people's personal "reviews."
I stay off YouTube when a game I deem worthy of purchase comes out, mainly because I want to avoid spoilers.

 

Additionally I've learned to avoid talking about a given game that I'm really looking for to on forums and Facebook because someone usually has something negative to say and it's usually people who have no idea what they're talking about or an extreme bias which makes their opinion irrelevant.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

There are independent developers.

Speaking of which, The Game Bakers announced their new game, Haven. Judging by the screenshots, there are combat and VN elements.

I enjoyed their first game (Furi, boss rush with bullet hell elements; it took 2 attempts to get into, but it was worth it), so whatever genre Haven is, it'll be good.

Remember a couple of years ago when SureAI made another total conversion mod for a Bethesda property in their ongoing series called Enderal? Were you like me and interested but didn't want to go through all the trouble of manually downloading the mod? Good news, it's now available on steam as a mod.

Yup. And Steam user reviews are the worst. I've never taken their reviews into account when trying to decide on buying a game. It's so very obvious most of the negative reviews are coming with an agenda.

Yeah this game I may actually play and finish (I have it downloaded), unlike Skyrim itself which I quit in the middle of my first playthrough and never returned to it.

The only videos about games I watch on YouTube are Joseph Anderson's. It's refreshing to see an author and skilled player give games an evaluation. That makes his approach different enough to be worthwhile even if some of his videos are long. Really. Long.

 

Well and Summoning Salt's documentaries, but these aren't reviews.

Nice! That is pretty cool, an author of novels giving thoughts on games. I'll check those out :)

They own FO 1 & 2 as well right? One rumor on youtube is a remaster bundle for every title from FO1 to FONV.

Oh God, let's hope they did not touch Fo1/2 in any way.

Would be sort of fun to watch the paroxysm of rage that would ensue.

They wouldn't need to change the old games, just make a version that is compatible for modern OS or even consoles is possible. Kids today don't know what they missed. 

 

Besides a re-release of FONV might even help OBS. Creatively speaking that was one of their finest hours.

But Bethesda doesn't put much work into their re-releases, so whatever it is, it's probably going to be disappointing. Just look at the Skyrim remaster, which was... kinda pointless... well, at least for pc users. Now that I'm thinking of it, a re-release of FNV in a modified engine could hurt the modding community a lot, because it'll split and lots of stuff won't ever get ported over to the new release.

Bethesda could even use this opportunity to fix the engine bugs, or just integrate the mountain of community fixes into the game...

He's -way- too good for some of his assessments to really be applicable to me, but it's certainly interesting to see viewpoints of a person with that kind of skill (I mean... Damn.) Thank you for pointing him out.

Resi 0, 1 and 4 will be released on the Switch soon: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-02-25-resident-evil-0-1-and-4-get-nintendo-switch-release-dates

Yes, they do. I wouldn't be surprised at this point since Planescape: Torment and Baldurs Gate are getting console releases.

 

I wouldn't mind getting a Fallout 1 & 2 platinum at all...good gosh am I cheap!

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

The Linux port of X4: Foundations is here. It's considered beta right now.

 

*insert joke about Egosoft games being pre-alpha at full release*

 

As a long time fan of the series, I'm pretty excited to once again begin building my galactic industrial and mercantile empire, which will ultimately fund my massive war fleet.
