The beta was pretty awesome- your loss!

They are arguably better than ever right now in terms of features and online play.  Still having a blast with SF6.

Also I was never actually any good in SF so thats not my fav fighting game at all.

So...practice and improve instead of whining about it?

Always wanted to get around to playing that, but never did :lol ....  Same with Heart of the Alien. 

Tried the demo for the Flashback Remake back then, but the cutscenes/dialogue was so questionably bad, I skipped it.  This better not be the same.

Welp, from what a few people have mentioned after playing through, it's a buggy, stuttery mess with long load times, etc..  Story is just ok supposedly (not that I was expecting anything to blow the mind), but they say it just isn't bringing it like the OG did and just play the original instead. lol ...Or play The Ascent.. which I've always had an eye on too.
Oh well, guess I'll wait for a massive discount or freebie.
Reviews are still supposedly coming tomorrow, so we'll see how deep/shallow the shitshow goes.

Always wanted to play it simply because of Flashback, but now IIRC, I told myself back then that it's the Alundra 2 of Flashback, so I essentially steered away from it.  Some games just needed to stay 2D.

Don't forget the likes of Tekken 8, Stalker 2, Hellblade II and all the (un)announced Switch bangers. We might see Metroid and 3D Mario :miyamoto

The VGAs will probably have a bunch of announcements of stuff that has been cooking a while and should be ready for 2024 too like Tomb Raider.

The Ascent is on sale for $7.  Anyone play through it? It looks pretty kewl.

And a random comparison; The Ascent or Signalis?  What would be a better romp through?  Was mentally prepared for the new Flashback vibe, but not for it sucking so bad, so wanted a pseudo-substitute.

Everything aside from graphics was way better executed in the GTA V announcement trailer. It has that feel to it. Those vibes

This is how their previous games launched, too- Red Dead Redemption 2 hit PC about a year after consoles.  IIRC they focus on the console versions first and then work on the PC versions after.

Not sure what you're talking about. I expected them to be further along (some of this stuff is obviously staged/in-engine animations like the girl swaying her hair, you can practically see someone press 'play' to record it) but overall I'm very impressed by the graphics and style. Not to mention all the 'Florida' things that they didn't shy away from like strip clubs and pool parties and the glimpses of side activities like street racing.

This has the GTA vibe that Watch Dogs, Saints Row and other competitors just couldn't seem to grasp.
It looks fun, it looks savage, it looks GTA.

Im saying the trailer itself is edited pretty badly compared to their older GTA trailers. I dont know if its the lack of a decent voice over, the music, the editing itself or whatever..

Well, I think it has something to do with this trailer dropping 2 years before release. I think they've made the city, mechanics, assets etc. and are just starting to put it all together with the story and everything.

As a Florida resident, these types of characters and behavior is only witnessed during Spring break.  Otherwise, these aren't typical Fluerdah residents.   :snob But some people do get crazy from the heat though. :doge

About the story vibe, seems like the Bonnie & Clyde thing would've been better with a 90's vibe.. Better music during that time too by far.  It looks graphically impressive, but nothing sold me on it yet.  Need to see some actual gameplay with such fidelity.  If you can literally break in any building/dwelling, I'll be more impressed.

I think it's the fact that GTA IV trailer had Niko telling you a little bit about himself, and why he moved to Liberty City

In the GTA V trailer Michael tells a bit about himself, and why he moved to Los Santos

I missed that in here I think, just a bit more voiceover.

The song choice is still super mid to me, and I love Tom Petty.

"About the story vibe, seems like the Bonnie & Clyde thing would've been better with a 90's vibe.."

Absolutely. Can have a whole True Romance thing going on then

Reading the PR blabble about New World Interactive shutting down and knowing what is actually going on behind the scenes is wild.

It's absolute chaos, as the people not laid off have no idea what is happening next and some of the folks that lost their jobs were on vacation.
Despite all the troubles at Embracer no one expected this to happen to suddenly. They announced a hiring and salary freeze for January

Fuck. So they added a Metro system. Very cool you would think. Finally being able to ride the train and gaze out the windows.

But then, it's just a locked in place cutscene? As in, you can't move freely on the metro. You can't walk around. You either stand or sit, in one specific place. The thing doesn't actually run either, you just select a destination from the list and it kicks you out there. Cant even do a full circle or something.

Like whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy even add this feature if you're just gonna handicap it and make it bullshit?
