Just watched the latest Avengers game trailer with Kamala Khan.

https://youtu.be/5g2ct2MuvK8

This is a much better trailer. I still hate the character models but it looks less garbage.

Also I loathe that they keep showing the characters without masks or Tony removing his face plate.


The last Marvel movie I saw was Iron Man 2, so I have no opinions on this whatsoever. Except that I'd rather have Eidos Montreal making another Deus Ex.

Oh, I hated the movie characters as well, it's the comic book look I'm looking for.

Iím confused. Is Modern Warfare a remake or getting used twice as a title?

Used twice. I think it may actually be a sort of prequel centered on Soap.

Outer Wilds is coming to PS4 October 15th.

https://blog.us.play...ps4-october-15/

Super excited about that. The space travel and planet exploration looks crazy.

That coupled with Obra Dinn I'd gonna make for a busy October.

Oh and Outer Worlds is hitting October 25th!

Outer Wilds is a fun little puzzle solving game.

Very excited for Outer Worlds on the 25th.

8 cores, SSD for speedy loadings and using 100GB optical disks. Also 4K BluRay player.

I'm wondering how big the SSD will be, and how much the whole package'll cost.

in other news, RDR2 PC specs are out, and while overall the specs are modest, it takes up 150GB of HDD space. And the new COD will be 175 GB.

Glad we upgraded to no-cap bandwidth, but still, that's like 2 nights worth of downloading for RDR2.

I checked and I do not own either Max Payne 3 nor Bully.

Contemplating doing a RDR2 pre-order via the Rockstar Social Club to grab those 2 as freebies.

I'm fairly sure that Rockastar Launcher will be needed for the Steam version anyway, so this is just bypassing the hassle.

My 2 cents, RDR2 is not worth full price.

I'd be interested to know what you think of Max Payne 3. I loved the first two and yet couldn't get into the third. Maybe I should give it another go...

That's why I'm considering getting 2 free games alongside it.

I wanted to like RDR2, so badly. I mean, the amount of detail in the game world is astonishing, an incredible achievement. And then it also has the most infuriating, aggravating control scheme and some baffling gameplay design decisions. After about 15 hours of playing, I still hadn't managed to 'get into it' in a way I had with the first game. It's quite an overwhelming game, yes, but I don't think that's the reason I stopped playing. There was just something about it that just didn't engage me. Technically, it's incredible. But I never became passionate about playing it.

That having been said, I do want to give it another go at some point.

I totally get the criticism around this, and it's quite possible the controls may turn me off (I dunno, I haven't played a Rockstar game since GTA 2. I tried 3 waaay back, but my PC at the time was crap, so I didn't get far into it before relapsing into RTSs again).

One thing I'm getting from it though is a sense of place that's giving me strong S.T.A.L.K.E.R. vibes. And that's one of my favourite games ever, even though when you aren't following the story, for the most part it's a meandering mess where stuff doesn't really happen unless you start messing with the world. But I still loved that sense of loneliness and "being lost in a harsh uncaring world" to death. If RDR2's frontier can recreate that sense of relief getting back to civilization, than it's be worth it.

Plus, y'know, controls can be fixed with mods'n'shit

The detail is absolutely incredible. Wild animals interacting with each other, the physics of, well, everything, from water leaking from shot barrels to what happens to people on horses when you roll rocks down a hill at them.

That said I stopped playing around chapter 4? I think I got distracted when Sekiro came out, and the story just wasn't enough to drag me back.

What makes me want to play again is heading out into that landscape without a map to just see what else I can find, and blow up/set fire to/drink/fight/hunt/drive trains over...

So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

A new dlc for Warhammer Total War 2 has brought me back in. I still love this game. Trying out the new and improved Empire as Baltasar Gelt, the metal mage. It's very engaging so far. The elector system works much better, and the additional units have made an already great roster even more fun!

Because my ISP is being a bastard and throttling any app that's not Steam (GOG, Rockstar Launcher, Windows freaking Update!), I am not gonna be able to take advantage of the RDR II pre-order, cuz the Launcher only starts up in "offline mode" (while at the same time I can download a game thru Steam!), so fuck it.

EDIT: re-booted the modem and still got the deal. Since I had gift card as a birthday gift, I used that to do the pre-order.

So, anyone gonna be picking up the Outer Worlds? the reviews appear to be pretty good.

I'd be interested in checking it out via GamePass, but I need to upgrade to Win 10 first.

I think I'll get Outer Worlds next week. I'm kinda eyeing the list of games that's coming out around now and it's expensive.

On the other hand I cancelled my Stadia preorder, so I've got an extra 1000 crowns to spend next month. Google have been walking back their promises in terms of streaming, so I'm going to adopt a wait and see approach. I am still interested in Stadia. If it can replace the need to buy a new computer every 3 year to play top of the line games I'm sold.
