  1. Its hard for me to give the game a 10. And I love the original I've played it numerous times. I feel like a 9 is more appropriate. I feel like for the the game to be a 10 it has to really stand out on its own and I feel like there were some interesting story decision. However, I say this with a caveat the story is not done! When its all said and done, I might very well give it a 10. Its just really hard for me to divorce the fact that they turned the first 25 to 30 percent of the game into 30 to 40 hours or more depending on how you play. But I loved playing through it and it held my attention
  2. Yea, all the history that they manage to squeeze into the game is impressive. Im very excited to see what Microsoft does with Age of empires 4. I hope they take some queues from crusader kings 3 and perhaps add some RPG like elements. Or characters that can kind of level up as you play in a match.
  3. Im sure there will be tons of DLC for Baldur's gate probably in perpetuity. This type of game will likely always have a very dedicated following.
  4. Congrats Cyberpunk team. In spite of various reports regarding glitches. The reviews are in and they're extremely high. CDProjekt Red has already recouped their investment. It's all gravy from here 🙂 I can't wait to see what type of DLC they release. Multiplayer I suspect will be next level as well, whenever it releases sometime in 2021. Read the whole article on Polygon if you are interested. What's really interesting about this though is that their stock actually dropped near launch. It makes me feel like analysts really don't understand the gaming community. The hype was just
  5. I think it looks pretty awesome. For those that are unfamiliar its a grand strategy game. Think civilization but much more granular. In a nutshell you play as a nobleman(In most cases) and are the head of a family. You can get married, marry off your offspring, make alliances, wage war, etc. The unique thing about Crusader Kings you don't just make broad decisions. That affect the country and nobody else. Instead every decision you make affects how other nobles see you. And overtime as you make small decisions you begin to craft your own personal story. So in affect every game can be drastical
  6. Wow Sony just bought Crunchyroll for over 1 billion dollars. Sony now own Funimation and Crunchyroll. I guess the rich get richer! It would be funny if Sony rolled them into one and offered it exclusively to Playstation subscribers. And decided to call it Animepass😁 Although I know this is not technically gaming news it just goes to show how competitive Sony and Microsoft have been lately with their acquisitions. At the end of the day. Rather its gaming or film or anime or some other media. In the entertainment business they're all competing for our eyeballs. The more opportunit
  7. I think there is a really good chance that Cyberpunk wins game of the year next year. Its made by a highly respected developer, open world, great graphics and you know they are gonna load it up with tons of content. It's hard for me to foresee a future without it winning next year. That being said, it sounds like they really need to work on the bugs as reviewers seems to be reporting a number of issues. All indications to me though, are that Cyberpunk will be a great experience and will likely be around for many years to come.
  8. https://www.theverge.com/22152626/hbo-max-2021-movies-release-date-matrix-dune-suicide-squad Its a new day in streaming! 2021 will be interesting indeed. Netflix has a huge amount of debt. At some point these companies will need to turn a profit.
  9. IGN is reporting that Gal Gadot(Wonder Woman) will be in a James Bond style spy movie. I must admit that she really won me over as Wonder Woman. I was very surprised when they casted her as Wonder Woman in the beginning. The only thing that I had seen her in at that point was the fast and furious series. As Wonder Woman she does give off that international, exotic vibe. So I'll be keeping my eye out for this one. I think it's going to be difficult to replicate the magic of James Bond with his witty replies, corny jokes and at the same time manage to keep the tone of the movie from being t
  10. I think it would be great if they released on the new generation of consoles. The graphics look really good on PC I would like to see how next gen consoles handle the game.
  11. I really can't say one way or the other. On the one hand, I'm just a gaming fan, always have been always will be. And to that end I enjoy Xbox and Playstation. However, on the other hand I think its amazing for a brand so have really passionate fans. I expect this contributes greatly to sales for each console manufacturer and ensures they will always have a base of loyal fans that will contribute to their brands and allow them to stay in business. There are a lot of business that would love to be involved in an industry where #1 there are quote unquote super fans, and #1 that they are so in lo
  12. If this is true gameplay. Not just running all over the map doing quality assurance, then this is extremely impressive. If Cyberpunk has that much content available to keep us busy, I can only imagine what the downloadable content will be like.
  13. You know it's interesting. Sony's CEO Jim Ryan hinted recently that PlayStation may be developing a competitor to Xbox's gamepass. But he also mentioned that they won't be making new releases available instantly on their service. "We are not going to go down the road of putting new releases titles into a subscription model. These games cost many millions of dollars, well over $100 million, to develop. We just don't see that as sustainable," he said. I think that may be a mistake if they want to truly compete. When we look at Disney plus for example people really disliked the idea of payi
  14. I even came upon a spoiler on IGN. It wasn't a huge spoiler to me but I would have preferred to find that out in-game. So be careful guys. They say more and more people are spoiling the game. Somehow a small group of people have gotten the game before release.
  15. ESPN is reporting that Jason Tatum is about to get paid! Congrats to him I hope he lives up to that contract. NBA money is getting ridiculous.
  16. I think the supply shortage will probably extend into the new year. Hopefully around mid to early january it won't be as hard to find the the consoles we want to purchase.
  17. I gotta support my Sci-fi. I had no idea this was in development. I'm sure a lot of people will watch it just because Tom Holland is in it. I love hollywood's continued investment into this kind of entertainment. I hope it continues!
  18. Huge open world, more than one way to solve a problem, one of the best devs in the industry. Cyberpunk has all the makings of a masterpiece. I can't wait to play it. And I hope it lives up to the hype.
  19. Interestingly enough I think they are both going to win. Sony's fanbase are diehard and I can't see them ever abandoning Sony. Xbox has diehard fans as well but aren't as numerous as Sony right now(all my friends love Sony). However, I think Xbox is going to be nursing an advantage(gamepass) that's going to be tough to overcome monetarily over the next few years if left unchallenged. It will be interesting to watch. What do you think?
  20. The Last of Us Part 2 Hades Ghost of Tsushima Doom Eternal Animal Crossings: New Horizons Final Fantasy VII Remake Or something else... Complete package wise I'd have to say FF7 by default. I have fond memories playing it growing up and I really enjoyed the reimagining and how in a way it also serves as a sort of sequel which was an interesting nuance I wasn't expecting. But I must admit, I have an admitted bias against TLOUS 2 because of the decision they made regarding the story. I recognize the game as a great cinematic experience and I will concede N
  21. I can't wait for the Snyder Cut to release on HBO Max next year. I'm of the strong opinion that Zack Synder's Cut will be far superior as the DC universe has his fingerprints all over it. And just the visual style along lends itself to the darker tale that Zack had in mind. Either way though its going to be a unique vision and something much different than the original Justice League movie.
  22. I've personally never played WoW. I'm more of a Starcraft guy. That being said blizzard makes some pretty cool cinematic trailers. If you haven't had a chance yet, check it out below.
  23. The new trailer looks great. I can't wait to see Zack Snyder's original vision. I just wish he had chosen some different music to go along with the trailer. I get what he was going for, but I just wish the music was a little more epic. Either way, nice trailer. I can't wait to see it.😎 From what I've heard about it so far, it seems like its going to be released as a mini series on HBO Max and later they will make a 4 hour cut. I think around 90% of the director's cut(or Synder Cut) is new footage. With most of the previous director's (Joss Whedon) footage thrown out. The new cut is due to rele
  24. Xbox is looking good so far I can't wait to see wait to see what type of numbers Sony releases. I feel like this generation is going to be great for everyone. There is a lot of positive energy going around for both console manufacturers and I'm sure Nintendo will drop a big announcement somewhere along the way too. 😁 It's a great time to be a gamer!🥰 Some facts and figures from Microsoft: More new consoles sold than any prior generation, with Xbox Series S adding the highest percentage of new players for any Xbox console at launch More games played, 3,594 in total, s
  25. I'd prefer it if he went to new york. But I must admit, if CP3 were to go to Phoenix. The Suns would have a great mix of highly skilled veteran leadership and young talent. Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and Chris Paul could cause people a lot of problems. The question is who would the Suns give up? Also I wonder if Chris Paul is willing to play in Phoenix for a few years. Are the Suns willing to mortgage their future? They would have to give up so much to make it work because Chris is making a lot of money. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2917421-chris-paul-trade-rumors-suns-have-d
