  1. I've been saying for months that streaming & subscriptions are headed towards a 'premium cable' model. That prediction might have just got a shot in the arm. Jez Corden (Microsoft insider at Windows central) says that Microsoft might be looking to sell xCloud servers to interested 3rd parties. That means a streaming version of EA Access, for example, could run on their servers. Any interested party could have a discussion with them about developing their own offshoots. Given what we know about the state of PC launchers today, the big 3rd party players could be very receptive to that idea. IMO, it's clear that Games Pass won't become the 'Netflix of games,' or at least what Netflix once was. Too many companies see the benefit of not putting their biggest releases into someone else's basket. But few companies have the infrastructure to support their own cloud services. If Jez is right, Microsoft might have found a way to still come out ahead in the inevitable splintering process. It could also stop publishers from running to Google's lap, should they also pursue a subscription model. ... Crazy times ahead. I will say, the more things fracture into individualized subscriptions, the happier I'll be sticking to direct purchases.

  7. 1pm Eastern, 5pm UK. What is it? Console? Streaming service? Dreamcast 2? Another Ouya type waste of time? Lots of rumours, very few facts so far. Are you hyped? Is this going to be 'The Future'? You can watch it here:
  8. The Polish studio has been bought by Supernova Capital, an investment firm founded by a number of Splash Damage veterans including former CEO Paul Wedgwood.
  9. I can't be the only one playing a Baba is You, right? Game has a weak 87 on Open Critic because nobody seems to have played it long enough to review. It's available on Steam and the Switch eShop. As much as I like it, this game has a habit of making me feel really stupid. Puzzles seem impossible and then they just click and I feel like an idiot for not seeing the solution sooner.
  10. I'm trying to not spoil myself by looking anything up but yeah...curious what others' thoughts are. I started playing The Witness last night, loved the aesthetics, atmosphere and puzzles. This morning I played another hour maybe and I'm starting to hit brickwall after brickwall with no direction or clue how to even approach some puzzles. Is the game generally considered hard or am I just rust and/or stupid in regards to solving anything requiring brain power? Also, so far I've activated two of those lasers but have abandoned many puzzles so I hope I'll even remember where this stuff was...

  12. On Reset: "I wouldn't say they were shooting for mediocre - I'd say they adopted the "we can fix this after launch" mentality as a way to actually ship the game within this fiscal year, which was dictated by EA."
  13. Games you love, but you know there's a few things you can add that would make them more fun. Examples? Horizon Zero Dawn - Amazing game, but a climb mechanic would be cool (not just the automatic platforming setpieces from Uncharted that's already there, but climbing onto any ledge like in many AAA open world games), some new weapons that add more options for combat and traversal (maybe a grapple thingy like in Sekiro that lets you grapple to machines and ledges), and the ability to dive in water. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - Put that amazing gore back in ya knobs, kthnxbye Devil May Cry 5 - Reduce the V missions (maybe 3 chapters), replace with more Dante and Nero, make the default difficulty SoS mode and add the wall run from DMC3 to Dante's moveset. No Man's Sky - Fix the MANY cases of glitches and jank in the game (pop-in, pixelated night sky on some planets, change the warp drive sequences back to first person since third person one stutters like trash on PS4, originally there was an animation showing you entering your ship, now it's a jump cut. Change it back). After the technical shit is on point, simply make life on planets much less frequent (rarely more than one per solar system, often none) and add some more story content and it'll be a pretty neat little space exploration game. Titanfall - Easy, just add physics and Battlefield-style destructible environments.
  14. Titanfall 2 is on sale for $8 on PSN at the moment, and I've heard really great things about the campaign. If you've played through it, do you think it's substantial enough to warrant purchasing the game at this price? I don't have PS+ and generally don't play online so I would only play the campaign. Thanks!
