  1. This game kind of gives you that feeling of paradox mixed with a little total war. Since its not turn based everything is happening in real time, over a huge map but you also get to control hundreds of units by the looks of things. So it's a really interesting mix. I prefer Crusader Kings emphasis on role playing a leader and raising a dynasty. But I can imagine a lot of Total War fans deciding to give this game a spin.
  2. I'm sure I speak for over 80% of the community when I say that removing DRM from any game is always a plus for fans. No matter how well a game performs or how good of an internet you have, at some point its gonna cause you a headache. That being said I totally understand why companies put in into their games. Its a slippery slope. Source - PC Gamer , Eurogamer
  3. Already more than 100,000 people have signed up for the multiplayer beta. Myself, I prefer a more finished product, at least for Halo. But seeing as we only have a few days left in this month, I expect for more Halo multiplayer news to be announced soon. Source - Gamespot
  4. Good for Quantic Dream. This is another one that I missed. It has some excellent reviews. This is the sort of game that I'd probably never buy but I would be interested in playing if I came across it while browsing Gamepass, PS Now or similar service. Perhaps, I'll get around to it one of these days.
  5. I am one of the few that totally missed the Dead Space when it released some years ago. It's been totally rebuilt from the ground up. Judging by the trailer it's going to look amazing and be extremely atmospheric. A few of my friends really enjoyed the old Dead Space games, I might have to give it a try this time around. I've also read that the developers have said there will be no microtransactions.
  6. I feel like Epic is putting itself in great position to be the go to gaming engine marketplace for game developers and publishers of all sizes including AAA studios down to small independent developers. What's even more interesting is that right now it doesn't seem like they have any real competition. I'm sure some of the big publishers like PlayStation, Xbox, Ubisoft, EA etc, have their own internal tech but there are no big third party competitors. For a healthy industry I think there needs to be more competition in this area. Source - Venture Beat/Games Beat
  7. Open sea claims that it has become the largest digital marketplace for crypto collectibles and NFTs which can include gaming items. Source - Venture Beat/Games Beat
  8. $235 million is a lot of money for free to play mobile games. I guess that just goes to show how huge the market is for mobile gaming. Source - Venture Beat/Games Beat
  9. The Tifa statue actually looks pretty professional game rant has an image up if you want to see it. I think it would be really cool for many of the big AAA studios to create a licensing program that allows fans to create, promote and sell fan art. I think this kind of stuff really helps create a loyal rabid fan base which can only be good for your game sells, spin offs, expansion into film and future products.
  10. A writer on polygon recently played classic Final Fantasy 7 for the first time after first playing the remake and is unimpressed. This doesn't surprise me at all. The original game released over 20 years ago, graphically, I wouldn't expect it to hold anyone's attention other than people that enjoy retro gaming and fans that carry their sense of nostalgia with them throughout their first playthrough. For me personally I can start up a new play session and enjoy the classic game almost just like before. The only difference is I know the plot twist regarding certain characters and while I admit that does take some of the fun out of the game, the reason that I play is because of the journey, I enjoy leveling up my characters, I don't mind having save points, I think turn based battles are nice as it allows me to just kind of cruise and enjoy the story.
  11. I really don't know much about Tencent or have a lot of experience with their games but 1.2 billion is a lot of cash.
  12. When one of the largest publishers in the video game industry gets sued by the state of California it's a pretty big deal.
  13. I saw another analyst post refer to these numbers and seemed to attribute this to Xbox's solid E3 showing. Sorry, I don't have the quote readily available.
  14. Well this post didn't age well. We won't get our hands on Starfield until late next year but at least we have a release date!
  15. In terms of pure entertainment, the Outer Worlds 2 trailer was my favorite trailer of E3. Full confession, despite decent review scores from critics and a good friend of mine, I totally skipped the first Outer Worlds! After watching this trailer, I decided to finally go back and check it out, and I'm happy to admit I made a big mistake. Outer Worlds is pretty fun. I love RPGs, so when I was greeted with an assortment of different background options and skills to choose from in the very beginning I was ecstatic. My biggest fear from this game is that it was way too silly to me. And while it is a bit over the top, so far I've enjoyed the humor. So put me on board the Outer Worlds 2 hype train. With Microsoft's backing , I'm hoping that Obsidian has all the funding they need to really push the limits and release a high quality AAA sequel to the original.
  16. I expect this movie to be huge! It will have a lot of people talking. Oscar Issac looks like a boss. The movie has a really compelling visual style to it. I predict Sci-fi fans will be pleased.
  17. Swords and shields with Ridley Scott directing = a must see movie for me. The trailer gives me the impression that this movie is going to be HEAVY. And it seems like there will be no happy ending. Probably not even a bittersweet ending but I know the visuals will be great and there will be some epic moments!
  18. I've been waiting for this movie to come out for a super long time! Maybe now that Amazon owns the IP they can get future iterations out the door on a more predictable and consistent basis.
  19. Looks solid. Idris Elba gives it some much needed star power. Still not hype for this one though. Maybe it will surprise me like the first one.
  20. This looks really good. Strange, mysterious, fantasy, sign me up!
  21. It feels like Jason Bourne goes to another country to save his daughter. I'm getting some minor 'Taken' vibes from this trailer. What if it turns out she really did it?
  22. M Night Shamylan working his magic again. I know he gets a lot of flak about his stories but they always have a twist and more often than not his stories seem to reward viewers for paying attention. I enjoy watching original movies that do something a little different, so I'll definitely see this movie at some point.
  23. As part of the GI Joe Spin off this movie looks like a lot of fun. I may not see it on day one but I feel like I'll enjoy it whenever I do get to catch it.
  24. I love fantasy and this trailer has a really cool visual style too it. The movies looks strange and mysterious, it has a talking fox but avoids being silly I like that. The movie releases on July 30th. I can't wait!
  25. I think this game is going to do very well. It has that Civilization feel but also some key differences. One could also argue its a more fitting competitor than Old World because Old World doesn't expand into the modern eras(Something that I like).
