Honestly I can't get too worked up. This is how capitalism works. Screw over the people to make more profit for your shareholders. People are just mad because this time they noticed, and they noticed because video games are serious business.

Ah yes, the old 'it's all capitalism's fault' argument. Sorry no. This has nothing to do with capitalism. To the contrary, this is wokeness gone mad, where being woke means 'how dare anyone criticize China!' in exactly the same way as Google and Facebook and other woke Big Tech companies love to kiss China's ass.

Judging everyone from our myopic "Western" values is the same dumbness as judging the past from todays societal norms. True story.

Let the swelling begin!

Well, garbage will always be with us.  Found Jumpjet there, ah, I remember spending so much time playing what was, well is, a stupid game - I spend my time blowing up B-52s and then have to battle a bouncing skull of death ?

Unfortunately, the venn diagram shows a lot of overlap between face palm territory and video game news territory. :shifty:

Players found

Halo 4 artwork originally created by 343 Industries technical art director Kenny Kagnusson. The art features a number of iconic Halo franchise vehicles, including its Scorpion tanks and Warthogs, clearly emblazoned with the UNSC logo — the United Nations Space Command. Stellaris: Galaxy Command appears to overlay a character model over the image of Halo 4’s vehicles, as seen in screenshots posted to Reddit.

Yeah. Never having used ScummVM, I guess it's much easier to set up than say, VirtualBox.

This in the broader context of them releasing a mobile game laden with MTX is nothing short of hilarious considering they went out of their way to ridicule shady business practices by corporations in the last major expac for Stellaris.

Anyone who's read their 2018 press release containing the two magic words (investors, mobile) knows what to expect, though. So...

Assigning a lot of motivations there. For all we know the artist was on a harsh deadline and a lot of pressure and said **** it, your problem.

Yes and no. You are right that this was not a PDS (the team that designed the megacorp in-jokes) ****-up. This is, however, very much a PDX ****-up. They chose to sub-⁠contract the game to what is likely the cheapest and fastest Chinese alternative "Game Bear Tech" -- who promptly delivered what is, according to accounts from people who have tried the beta, simply a reskin of their own Nova Empire MTX trash heap.

So yeah, even if Martin Anward or Daniel Moregård didn't have any hand in this dumpster fire, the board most definitely did, but somehow expected it to go over well in a typical example of executive disconnect.

Does anyone know when (if) The Outer Worlds is going to be released on GOG? It's the only platform that allows to control versions of games, so I'd prefer to use it, if possible.

I suspect it will get to GOG as it is a good fit and isn't MP/ steamworks etc, but yeah, minimum of a year even without any EGS exclusivity. IIRC the shortest time from general release to GOG release was Mafia 3, which took just over a year.

I don't know if it will come to GOG any time soon. Those big releases usually tend to avoid GOG for a long time. Pre-epic announcements were about steam releases, 

As others said, if it will happen, it will be a year from now, at the earliest.

Good thing those releases back then weren't exclusive 😛
