2007 was such a ridiculous year of quality original games. Iím not against sequels or anything like that. But Lost Planet, Portal, Crackdown, STALKER, Crysis, Witcher, Bioshock (debatable), Rock Band (also debatable), Mass Effect, Skate, Uncharted.


Anyway, on Starfield and GPUs, annoys me how AMD GPUs include a Steam key of it while Nvidia includes Overwatch 2 cosmetics. Iím part of the problem for sticking with Nvidia.

And that's just the 360, we also got Metroid Prime 3, Super Mario Galaxy and more on Wii as well as sports and racing games and PS3 exclusives he didn't include.

The only thing in recent times close is the odd Switch streak of quality releases.

Aw shit, the CEO of Pearl Abyss stated that they're going to show some more gameplay footage of Crimson Desert at Gamescom.  If they actually have a release date too, that'll be a miracle.  Game looked stunning.

I mean, it sounds like AC but with the review favorable bias towards From Soft now in a post-souls From Soft are rockstars world.

Probably will be fun, but it doesn't sound like it really breaks the mold for AC. Doesn't sound like it will give me that ZoE2 experience, but should be fun enough to enjoy going through the campaign once when it's $20-30 in a year.

Yeah true, but I've never played an AC game so I have no vested interest in the franchise. So long as it's good I may check out the rest.

Also read the story is also kinda 'eh' and just falls apart at the end. ..But I guess this is one of those games that people don't play for the story.

Speaking with several sources under the condition of anonymity who are currently under embargo and couldn't speak publically about the game, McVicker's comment is the same sentiment given by everyone I've spoken to. Five individuals, who have a varying amount of time put in the game have all said that the amount of bugs they've experienced can be counted on one hand. In fact, most said one or two at most, with everyone I spoke to having put dozens of hours into the game. In addition, it was also said that almost all the bugs that were found have already been listed to be fixed in the Starfield Day 1 patch

They dropped a sizzle reel for the Lenovo device.

The insane button layout almost makes sense. The right joycon becomes a mouse.

Hall sticks, too, I think?  But TBH I'm more interested in this because the controllers are removable.  I'd like to use it like a tablet with my own controllers.

Starfield is getting hit with 7s and 75% scores.  PANIC!

This one's a 5/10:

Like many I was able to overlook all those issues in Fallout 3, Skyrim, and Fallout 4 because of the quality of the writing and the worldbuilding. Those games had characters I cared about in compelling situations that I wanted to resolve. Starfield doesnít have that. Starfield is thematically so similar to Mass Effect and yet so inferior to it that I just wanted to go play those games again. Its approach to exploration is so similar to No Manís Sky and so inferior to it that it made me want to go back to 2016 and play the original version of that painfully underrated game once more. And in almost every other way it feels like Fallout 4 and Skyrim, but, you guessed it, inferior to them.

It has the same resolution as my 27Ē monitor lol. Technically higher as itís 16:10.

Itís an interesting looking device. Doesnít seem great as a handheld but utility and features make it more than a Windows Steam Deck. At least for my uses, it would. I could see leaving the controllers at home and using it as a mini laptop from time to time.

I'm sure Bethesda fans will enjoy it and it's good for a Bethesda game. Nothing against them.

But let's not pretend that the western/mainstream review sights haven't been slobbering over Bethesda releases for decades. I mean most people thought Fallout 4 sucked at launch, right? Yet it still had an 88 MC...

It's incredible seeing the old guard go down like this. Volition, bioware, and more. Now look at them. Even Bethesda isn't immune. Imagine if GTAVI sucks.

Western gaming is having a chickens come to roost moment and replacements (Larian is the new Bioware) keep popping up every day.

When Microsoft bought Bethesda I argued it more or less 'saved' them from sinking because they weren't going anywhere fast.

Fallout76 was a dud, Wolfenstein: Youngblood sucked, RAGE 2 was a misfire, Arkane was bleeding talent and already doing asset flip sequels(Dishonored: Death of the Outsider), Mikami wasn't exactly living up to Resident Evil 4 fame and Starfield was in development hell (it even leaked). Without Microsoft they would've probably been forced to ship Starfield earlier leading into some kind of Cyberpunk 2077 situation.

By 2019 or so Bethesda was already running on Skyrim fumes. It has just been obscured by the Microsoft merger.

I also want to add that I have zero skin in this. I literally know nothing about Starfield other than it's a Bethesda game where you go to different planets like Mass Effect/No Man's Sky.

I'm sure it's a good game. I don't ever want to play Skyrim but I have friends who played the shit out of that game and enjoyed it, so I'm sure it's a good game even if I'll probably never touch it. Just saying review scores don't mean much with Bethesda because they're put on a pedestal. So can't really tell if it's ok/good/amazing because it'll still score the same regardless.

Starfield looks like they took the design from Fallout 4 and made it better. And since it's a new IP, I don't get angry at it defiling an old IP.
