You can thank Sega and Nintendo for that one, instead of teaming up to be the 3rd guy they decided to go full retard, leaving only two.  Two is not competition, when there's only two fish in the pond, they learn to work together and share the spoils so they don't get lonely.  When you add a 3rd fish, things really get shaken up.

A wild Stadia appeared. It’s not very effective.

As usual it's mostly marketing bs with very few actual meaningful numbers. Their main goal appears to make people believe that "resistance is futile".

Eg. Metro Exodus appears to have sold pretty badly (at least, far below what I would have expected for the amount of hype there was), though they did manage to spin it the other way around since "journalists" failed to consider the comparison they were making, and just parroted what was said. Basically Exodus, an AAA game, selling "double" (I think they said double) the amount of "Last Light", a niche game with a big controversy impacting initial sales, isn't "good".
If Witcher 3 would have sold twice the number of copies of Witcher 2 (also pseudo-niche, like Last Light), CDPR wouldn't even have broken even. Now I'm sure Metro isn't quite as big (or Exodus as costly), but if we scale the comparison down then 2 times the LL sales still doesn't look particularly good. (and yes, I did use numbers, insofar available, and extrapolated based on that, I can dig those up if anyone really cares). Obviously it's all extrapolation, but still there does seem to be quite a bit of marketing spin going on, and very little questioning of what is actually said. We'll only know for sure once the financials are published, but I'm fairly confident sales weren't as great as Epic would want us to believe, or they'd have shared actual sales numbers.

Anyway, a lot of modern day "journalism" going on, in other words.

Gotta give it to Epic though: their marketing department is ace.

Yes, it's true that much of it is PR but PC gamers has proven themselves to be incapabale of staying away before;

And considering the amount of people that plays/played fortnite, a decent amount of the market already has an Epic account and most likely wouldn't care about trying to boycott the store.


Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L.

That's the thing though, most gamers simply don't give a ****.  You only find vehement opposition buried in dark corners of the internet.

I never even cared about platform until this thread provided some unique insight on the platform "wars".  I have a GoG, Steam, and Epic Games account, and now am seriously considering getting rid of my GoG account because apparently it has fanbois trying to stifle progress.  Reminds me of the American Confederacy, and we all know what happened to them.

Metro: Exodus' final DLC "Sam's Story" coming out on February 11th, just shy of when Exodus' EGS exclusivity ends.

The American character returning to the US on a Typhoon-class SSBN brings to mind a certain Tom Clancy novel and film based on the novel:

I'm not sure how interested I am myself, but if you like "Diablo-styled" arpg's, Torchlight Frontiers, the planned online/mmo focused is now instead Torchlight 3, the not really mmo/offline available.

According to the devs, the game now follows a structure that sticks close to the original's style. The big change with Torchlight III is that it's lessening the focus for online-play. While you can still play it online with friends and other players, you will also be able to play the game offline. When you are online, most zones will be set to private, letting you explore at your own pace in solitude. Along with this change to the game's online requirement, the pricing model has also been revised. With the shift to a premium model, the game's real-money store will be removed.

I'm a bit annoyed by them to be honest, I never find their DLCs interesting at all, I just want more of Artyoms story. I'd have wanted extra areas and such instead, hell even an epilogue expansion or something like that.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order that. When they announced it at BlizzCon 2018 they said it was going to have updated missions, cutscenes, cinematics and voice acting to better reflect current WarCraft canon, but apparently it has none of that. On a different note, in the zoomed out gameplay it's not as noticeable but I don't think any of the models really look like they fit WarCraft and Blizzard's style, they're more like JRPG designs. Surprise surprise, they were outsourced...

Always have to have something to gnash our teeth about. At this point, sort of glad companies do this - they're keeping these Youtubers alive :)

When I was a kid, we used to pay for stuff with Pokemon Tazo (is that what they call overseas, too?) coins.

Most stable form of currency I've had, really.
