How to answer whether Underworld Ascendant was any good? I think I can only quote one of western civilisation's great philosopher in response:

"No."

 

Is Volo western?

Here is the preview for Outriders. There is a whole lot of gameplay footage and it looks like a Gears clone:

 

Enjoy!

 

Edit:

Nexgen?!!! Seriously?!

If this is nexgen, then nexgen can kiss my hairy Iranian a** right here and now.

If there is anything I know about next-gen launch titles.

It's that they are uninspired derivative shovel-ware cash grabs, meant to capitalize on the low hanging fruit of slapping the newest shader technology on everything.

It's the psychology of the graphical hike that gets people, filled with promises of being in the works longer than the previous end of generation titles. But it's the opposite, it's taking everything that comes for free, and gives nothing that is worked hard for.

The only reason Breath of the Wild was a launch title, was that it was 6 years into development. Was meant for the Wii U, and was used to kick-started the Switch when Nintendo panicked at the Wii U's flop by essentially resetting what their hardware foundation was. Games like Killzone Shadow Fall come with the added benefit of being 1st party, and thus feel less generic than the 3rd party flavor of next-gen launch titles, but often still suffer from the fact that hardly anyone owns the system, and thus they are mostly developed at a loss, and typically are underbaked in some essential way. Let's be honest KZ is rather basic other than an above average art direction. Occasionally a big title ends up cross-gen GTAV and soon to be Cyberpunk. Those aren't launch titles.

More than anything it's just publishers packaging up the test games that weren't made while practicing on new dev kits, and slapping the reject pile art and narrative design into them.

Baldur’s Gate 3 might be releasing this year, if Stadia’s slip up is to be trusted:

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/02/14/baldurs-gate-3-may-be-out-this-year-if-you-believe-this-goof-up-by-google/

Oh great another money making scheme from con artists trying to cater to Gen-X nostalgics who can't seem to evolve from their shells.

On a note from the same website

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/02/13/epic-games-ceo-says-devs-and-stores-should-be-apolitical-as-if-that-was-possible/

Right! Apolitical in times like these?  It's like being apolitical in the 1930's and 40's, give me a break.

Well, Swen has since apparently tweeted that Google "got it wrong."

He also claimed they are not working on Baldur's Gate.

I changed 'Breath of the Wild' to 'Twilight Princess', 'Switch' to 'Wii' and 'Wii U' to 'Gamecube' and that paragraph still makes sense.

Still haven't played Breath of the Wild but TP wasn't without its flaws. Come to think of it, I never even popped in the Wii U remaster I bought years ago. Maybe it's time to give it a whirl.
