I thought Shepard was on Earth because that's where the Crucible was and the Normandy crashed on some random planet because they were trying to get away?

That's what I thought too. In the max readiness Extended Cut ending, it was strongly hinted that Shep somehow survived anyway. Lots of rubble but no snow.

I'm sure they'll "creative integrity" it away somehow.

And I was wondering, why it resembles so much the Vermintide. And it’s the same company 🤣

To be honest, gameplay looks like the same old, same old. Visuals in the trailer look good, but really nothing in it makes me want to buy the game.

I am only one who wondered if that music fit at all?

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 music is the reason they fight. The ogryn listens to loud music and that is how the enemies found them

 

The Sister of Sigmar is so meh. Looks like a lazy conversion of a warhammer fantasy miniature - as if someone took a sister from Mordheim, slapped a gun holster on her belt and said: look! Female Cawdor for Necromunda! Should have given her a chainsword instead of a hammer.

There's a Vermintide 2 trailer where the beastmen spot the party literally because the dwarf sings too loud. :lol:

Since it's more game company news than game specific, but did you folks see that CD Project Red have already made back the money they invested in Cyberpunk?

Apparently the eight million pre-orders and day one sales earned them over the cost of producing the game. So the company made the decision to actually pay all bonuses rather than hold them to the criteria of critic / metacritic review thresholds.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-11/cd-projekt-changes-developer-bonus-structure-after-buggy-release

Executives at Polish video game publisher CD Projekt SA took responsibility for the buggy release of the highly-anticipated title Cyberpunk 2077 this week, telling staff on Friday in an email obtained by Bloomberg that they will receive their full bonuses no matter how the game is reviewed. Previously, CD Projekt developers were told they would receive extra pay based on the game’s critical performance.

The funniest thing is, that the Project CARS people are back to EA... Looks like Karma did bit them in the end for their PCARS3 shennigans...

Seriously, if they gave it for free, I still wouldn't bother to reinstall.

 

On a different note, EPIC had accidentally mixed up alerts when the pre-loads for Cyberfunk started and sent me an alert that pre-orders for Werewolf: Earthblood started. They did start pre-orders yesterday for realz now. Release 4. Feb.

Excellent random news! I loved the first StarCrawlers, and the guy behind the game have released a lot of updates long time after the release. He even added completely new hacking stuff into the game, to make the hacker playthrough more interesting. I hope I'll see it soon at GOG as well :)

Several BioWare Veterans Return For New Mass Effect Game - Game Informer

If some of these names don't sound familiar, here's a quick breakdown of who is who:

Derek Watts
Watts is the original Art Director for the Mass Effect series
Brenon Holmes
Holmes has worked on the entire Mass Effect trilogy, Dragon Age Inquisition and Origins, Andromeda, and more dating all the way back to Baldur's Gate II. He's a lifelong BioWare staple and intimately familiar with all of the evolutions this studio has undergone
Parish Ley
Ley was the cinematic direct for the Mass Effect trilogy and he is returning to BioWare and the series specifically to bring back his vision for the new game
Gamble also notes that he was the mastermind behind many key moments that Mass Effect fans love
Dusty Everman
Everman was a key person when it came to bringing the vision of the original Normandy to life in the first Mass Effect game
He left BioWare back in 2015, like Ley, but is returning to add his talents to the new Mass Effect game

And since it's not directed at gameplay itself..

**** everywhere in "Cyberpunk 2077" is a bug, developer says - Business Insider

Not in advertisements or in Night City's sex shops, but behind staircases and in greasy garages — everywhere. What cheese wheels were to "Skyrim," dil dos are to "Cyberpunk 2077."

It turns out, the explanation for their ubiquity is simple: It's a bug.
