As for Nintendo, as I predicted they're going all out on Switch this year building on the momentum of their theme park opening, the mario movie and a fuck ton of first party games and another big push from Square Enix.

Potential price drop?

How about they make an update with controllers that don't break. I've been exclusively splitpad pro for years cause the joycons are such dogshit.

Already 50% off.

Is the game worth it at this price?  Reviews are pretty mixed.
It's the best Need for Speed in years. Scratches that classic Underground / Most Wanted / Criterion vibe. Unlike Horizon which is a gacha game disguised as a racer this game doesn't give you 50 cars within 30 minutes by just spinning wheels or showing up.
Instead you have to tune, upgrade, master your starter car and squeeze it to the limit before you can afford a new car. The car handling model could've been better though.

Also it is very 'zoomer' your opponents aren't a gangster or ex-cop but rather a they/them TikTok dancer, soy hip hop artist or anime nerd.
There's also a lot of current events political drama on the radio that I'm sure will tie into the story at some point in a Need for Speed game.
On the positive zoomer side there's a lot of creativity in the art, UI and overall presentation with a lot of energy which really sets it apart from other dull racing games.

I don't know what EA was smoking trying to sell this at 79,- at launch. I got at it 40 about 2 weeks after launch which seemed about right.

Marvel Avengers last content update will drop March 31st, all support for Marvel's Avengers ends September 2023.

All cosmetics from the marketplace will be gifted to players for free.
The remaining balance of marketplace currency will be converted to in-game items.

EA Play on Steam is a great deal. All games over 6 months old are free to play, and new games you get 10 hours to test it out.

I only pay $30 canadian a year. I hate EA, but man is it a smoking deal.

I hate this shit. A bunch of vague drivel with a promise to never elaborate any further yet a demand for others to somehow address these vague demands. In this case from a woman who left seven years ago hopping on the latest news to lecture everyone about her own personal experience in the past. And with the obligatory "trauma/panic response" crap too.

I did not feel safe in this gamergate environment, being pressured to work on murder simulators. However I felt a glimmer of hope when I was moved to the game design team. I isolated myself from the others and spend my days prototyping a pacifist mode for HALO which would broaden the audience. In my prototype players would talk and argue with the covenant to share their perspectives on important issues like equality, diversity and gender roles. Then management scrapped all my work saying that it would be too expensive to retool the entire game. I knew it was the QA testers that were responsible, I remember seeing them smirk at me as they entered the elevators.

To make matters worse after a performance review management moved me over to manage the team in charge of the ice biome and I hate winters as well as talking to people So I panicked. The team would refer to me as their 'Ice Queen' as I slaved away making this dumb game until I couldn't take it anymore. Of course it might be a bit much to compare myself to the French resistance during WW2 but following those gendered insults I did enough to delay work on the ice level so it would get scrapped for the release prior to my departure. When the level designers found out they refused to talk to me afterwards. They were soooo toxic, constantly nagging about a 5 year gap on their resume that would be hard to explain so I had to set all my social media profiles to private.

I would doubt it because the tweet very strongly suggests this is something the game went out of its way to highlight and that's how it drew his attention even though Holland is well, you know, another actual place. I would go further and ask how he proposes to name an abandoned child in a superior way.

Mikami always pushed for diverse titles, gave developers like Kamiya and Suda a platform for their weirdest ideas, TEW was the opposite of what he wanted to make with his own company orginally and that's why it always felt mid.

From the article:
Quote
Then, in September, Crystal Dynamics will be ending support for Marvel's Avengers entirely and delisting the game, and while it states that both solo and multiplayer play should still work fine after support ends, it does so with the caveat that any issues after this time will likely not be fixed: "The changes we are making to how the game functions will ensure as long a life as possible. However, after September 30, 2023, we canít guarantee that we will be able to address issues that occur due to unforeseen circumstances."
This is like $7 on Humble right now ($10 for the one with the outfits) and I considered getting it but decided to wait for under $5. Hopefully they won't bump the price as delisting approaches like some other companies...

Watched Max play through a level of Hi-Fi Rush. Actually seems like a lot of fun despite the obviously low budget. Even the humor hits better than it did in the presentation. Donít have an Xbox or a PC that can play anything released within the last decade though, so I canít play it myself unfortunately.

How deep is the combat compared to stuff like DMC?

I might resub to game pass for a month for this. Not sure if I want to shell out $30 blind on it, but for $10 sure.
