Quote
Take the Reflex tree: in vanilla Cyberpunk, being a "Reflex" V meant you were somewhat better at shooting SMGs and rifles, which was OK, but not very interesting. You could dump a dozen perk points into that old tree and have nothing but a 10% damage buff and some recoil reduction to show for it. In 2.0, Reflex has been reimagined around freedom of movement. Nodes that used to grant tiny percentage boosts now enable entirely new abilities.

The very first perk I unlocked was not a 3% damage buff, but a passive ability called Slippery that makes enemies more likely to miss me while moving. Branching off Slippery are perks that let me shoot while sprinting, combat slide farther, and climb faster. Around level 7 I unlocked the next branch of perks, and now I can dash around the battlefield like a Dragon Ball Z character and deflect bullets with katanas.

Star Ocean 6 was good.

The fact there are six Star Oceans and only two Valkyrie Profiles is precisely why I hate Star Ocean.

Well it's more that it's sad we got a new Star Ocean and a New VP and Star Ocean 6 is apparently a legit rpg and VP is a mediocre action game.

If the new VP was at least as good as SO6, it'd be a different story.

What's so good about SO6 anyways? My mind goes auto blank regarding SO. The fact they're cheesy animu games always made me even more bitter regarding that franchise.

On the contrary. The fact they took decades to make a new VP, decided to make it an action game, and made Stink Ocean 6 an actually good RPG (apparently) gives even more reason to hate Stink Ocean even further.

I don't think SO6 is "so good" from what I've heard.

It's more that SO4 was bad and SO5 was extra bad and most modern AA jrpgs are mediocre, so SO6 being sort of a decent jank budget jrpg for 2023 makes it good in comparison.

Like I'm going to play SO6 now that they're adding it to PS+ next week. But I'm not expecting it to be a great jrpg. As long as it's better than FF16 in gameplay that'll be good enough.

Also does asmorongold do any playing of games or he just reacts in his basement to other people?

That guy is such an annoying guy as well

He played Starfield for 60h.

A lot of people aren't super impressed by yet another round of Bethesda jank that's just the same decade+ old formula with a space skin applied, I think that's fair :yeshrug

Well to each their own but its a lot better than fallout 4 ever was, in every way possible. I think there could have been a lot of improvements and yes its basically another one of their games, but in my eyes its still the best one of those theyve done.

Im over 60 hours in and havent done a faction quest yet nor am I very far into the main story. Depending on how you play you can sink hundreds of hours into this game, and thats not even counting the amazing mod possibilities.. or replay value in rerolling and choosing vastly different perms / traits

Just the entire look and feel is amazing and nothing like Ive encountered in other space games like Elite Dangerous or Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. Space and planets are very well done



I love space games ever since Freelancer and I feel like this is a step in that direction that I love

The Cyberpunk 2077 previews are very positive. I wonder if the review scores will be adjusted it sounds like an entirely different game.

Forza Motorsport previews are... meh. Turn10 got caught reusing old inaccurate car models again and there's a point system that basically forces you to stick with a car for 3-5 hours before you can upgrade it.

DOUBLE DRAGON ADVANCE and SUPER DOUBLE DRAGON TO RELEASE ON MODERN CONSOLES NOVEMBER 9, 2023 (Physical only on Switch currently)



https://www.arcsystemworks.jp/portal/post-25709/

If they revamped Super DD by removing the horendous SNES slow down, that game could be even more dope than before.

This is worth it for DDA alone though.

Kinda disappointing that the DD for that weird Brazilian Zeebo console isn't in this collection since supposedly it's the best DD ever, you can't get the game anymore since the console is digital only and there is no emulation for it.

Also LMAO at gaming Twitter and probably Reddit and shit going nuts because Xbox wanted to buy Nintendo/Valve.

These are just logical business chances you have to look at, ofcourse it would a career achievement for Phil if he could get some shit like that done.

Not that it was ever going to happen, zero chances of them actually pulling something like that off.

But people going crazy about it is just distinguished mentally-challenged.

That is never happening dude.

I'm just saying it's only logical from a business standpoint to investigate and look at acquisitions.

You don't think Sony would want to buy Nintendo or Valve?

This is just business as usual. It doesn't mean that Nintendo or Valve would ever sell.

Valve is never going to sell while Gabe's alive. They're smart and stay private for a reason.

I wouldn't even put it past Gabe to have something in his trust that whoever takes over Valve when he dies can never make it public or sell it outside of a bankruptcy.

I could see valve doing some kind of partnership with MS, streaming or something, but not a full-on acquisition.

Nintendo, I would expect them to never stand down and go out like The Last Samurai, as long as they keep up with tech.  They got it figured out though.  Keep things cute and kid friendly, and the generations will follow.

Spencer says the "problem" is Nintendo having big cash reserves.

Anyhow this stuff is wild. We have Spencer figuring out he has no games for 16 months after Starfield is delayed but also Spencer confident about a roadmap up to 2030.
From what I can tell they try to make it look like they're focused but Xbox is all over the place with these plans.

Most of this stuff is years old and plans change.

I liked the part where Spencer said they need to do better, and not having 1/2 games a year.

Also I don't own an Xbox but personally, Sony has been arrogant as fuck for years, and I'd love to see them taken down a notch again.

Sony at the start of the PS4 was amazing, humbled by their PS3 losses. Actually doing their best to win over customers.

It's not good for gamers if Sony keeps coming out on top.

I don't have a specific allegiance. I had a 360 most of that generation, then bought a PS3 later.

But switched to a PS4 because of the DRM bullshit MS tried to cook up.

tbh it feels like it’s leaning a bit much into wackier side. Combat is slightly more involved than 7. Characters moving on their own never bothered me there.

Spikeout as one of the arcade games is awesome. If they’re emulating Model 3, they should’ve put in Scudracer, too.

I'm just glad we're getting Yakuza in America. That has the potential to be hilarious fun.

Y7 is a soft reboot and this is a direct sequel to that. But it’s a full blown jrpg and double the length of previous games, so it is a time investment.

If there’s a third Judgment game, safe to assume it’ll take place in Hawaii. Yokohama map has already been used four times, including 8.

And they're already stagnant in 2022.  :doge

Even when they realized they had no games when Starfield/Redfall got delayed and they went shopping there wasn't much to buy. Publishers were either unlikely to put the big titles on gamepass, unlikely to have capacity to develop a PC version or they thought it unlikely the game would be a hit (Baldurs Gate 3 lol).

I just don't see a scenario where enough big games are released every year (let alone exclusive) that ensure such growth. For that to happen they probably need to chase something like HoYoverse, not WB Games.
The original plan was probably to put Call of Duty on GamePass but with all the 'deals' they had to cut with other cloud services that becomes less and less appealing. The Series S | X split being 75/25 also isn't a good sign for where things stand.

The entire back catalogue of Activision on GP? Neat, but hardly game changing. Browser gaming or streaming through a TV or smartphone app will never be the #1 choice to play videogames either.
Handhelds from companies like ASUS will never reach the popularity of Steamdeck or the mass market distribution of Nintendo.

It's usually a promotion of price cut that does that. I noticed the price dropped 33% here too.

Yeah, I've never stuck with a souls-like even though I've played through every Souls game and love them. The knock offs just are always missing something that makes Souls work and compelling.

Lies of P looks like the best one yet in more of a Bloodborne style. When it's cheap I'll definitely give it a shot.
Also going to keep my eye on the Lords of the Fallen remake. The first Lords of the Fallen seemed good in some Souls ways, but it was also kind of boring and I dropped it after the first area or two.

The way the entire industry is trolling the fuck out of Unity's collapse is kind of hilarious.

I may try Godot before trying Unreal Engine since I'm mostly interested in making small 2d games.

Ended up getting this. Probably never gonna make anything, but getting even a basic understanding of how game engines work is fun.

Those I mentioned praised it highly but they were just commenting that mostly due to the tighter parry windows and beefy boss fights they consider it harder. They had no personal problems with it being that difficult though.

Strength build with throwable items seems to be what a speedrunner I've seen is going for to maximize DPS and creating opportunities to hit with tougher bosses.

So Unity walked back so incredibly far they actually made Unity a better product than it currently is (getting rid of splash logo for personal, higher threshold to change from personal to business) and offered a self-reporting 2.5% cut instead of the dumb installs thing which is lower than Epic's 5% but Unity still charges a per seat cost to license. Also none of this is retroactive to released games and only for games being made on the 2024 version next year.

But they've destroyed their goodwill so hard, they're probably fucked for good.

My take is that most projects currently in dev for Unity will finish the project but anyone starting a new project will probably jump ship. I'm still going to look into starting over learning Godot or Unreal, not because I'm paranoid Unity will change the terms later and fuck me, but more that I think enough people are going to jump ship that Unity will go bankrupt and fail and don't really want to waste time learning a soon to be dead and unsupported engine.

Apparently the biggest game currently in dev on Unity is Hollow Knight Silksong.

What is interesting about the new way they present Cyberpunk 2077 is that they stopped to try and make it an imperfect immersive sim where you could pick paths.
Instead they just doubled down on the action both when it comes to perks as well as the gameplay. It suits the game better and gives the player a clear focus.
You no longer have to worry if blowing shit up fits your character or path because it always does.

I'm looking into buying a new GPU after seeing what DLSS 3.5 can do


My RTX 2070 Super is now 4 years old and the market seems to have calmed down a bit.
From what I can tell these are the options in the 600 - 700 Euro range:

AMD
7800XT
7900XT
(or older cards)

Nvidia
4070
4060 Ti

AMD is pretty much a non-starter because they don't have all this fancy new tech and Nvidia has leapfrogged them in Ray Tracing and AI to a point that experts question if they ever will.
4060 Ti doesn't seem to have enough VRAM. The 4070 seems to be the best somewhat affordable option. Should offer twice the performance of a 2070 Super, which is a significant increase.
