Did two short sessions of a TWEWY1 replay, no longer than the TWEWY2 demo, and I'm already at day 6 of the first week :cat I completely forgot that this actually was a nicely short RPG.

Apparently Sony has acquired both, Housemarque and BluePoint.  Housemarque has been confirmed.

Both good Devs, but both were essentially Sony exclusive anyhow. Still good to keep the studios alive instead of worrying about one bomb away from bankrupting.

Basically I don’t think this benefits Sony but it benefits both developers.

Makes sense for Sony to buy them otherwise they'd just wait around for the Embracer Group of Microsoft to pick them up.

Hey come on, The Medium had a Press RT to defend against child abuse section. These guys know how to handle sensitive subject matter.

I'm hoping they tackle race relations in America.

This is the last thing we've seen.


Quantic Dream doesn’t “make games for fegs” according to a quote by David Cage as reported by French website Solidaires Informatique.

According to the site, Cage was visibly in tears as part of legal proceedings between Quantic Dream and Le Monde & Mediapart before making his statement.

“[Cage was] stammering, in tears, exclaiming ‘you interfere in my business!’ before leaving the courtroom, fleeing from the defense lawyers’ plea,” reads a translation from Solidaires Informatique as translated on ResetEra.

Always a good sign when the game design director announces he's leaving before the game ships.

I thought layers of fear and observer seemed fine (for the first few hours i played of each)

Silent hill hadn’t been good since 3 anyways.

Yeah, plus imagine making an ubisoft sandbox game for years. Imagine all the repetition the players experience but times that by 10,000x.
Do you really want to stick around and start spending another 4-5 years on the same thing again?

Fwiw, I thought the one features trailer of FC6 with the alligator buddy and stuff looked fun. I still generally like FC.

Hmmmm,

My understanding is that all his VN stuff is pretty good with some misses, but when he tried to make a game with non-VN gameplay (Worlds End Club) it was fucking terrible.

So hopefully that one is just a VN. I heard AI Somnium was fine.

Saying this because the trailer almost makes it look like an action game spinoff or something.

So I got that Bitmap Books "Guide to Japanese Role-Playing Games" LE book and just arrived. Pretty damn nice. I've bought a few game coffee table books here and there but this definitely seems like one of the best just in terms of build/print quality. Will be nice to go on the shelf.

Although I think I'll always feel irked that I didn't write this because I feel like I could've written this book myself.

But she has a sword! Which means ready to do some slicing, which makes you think action.

But apparently she's in the first game and this is just a VN so it should be good.

I'm very happy with my LG OLED 55" CX that I picked on Black Friday last year. It's a huge upgrade over my 12 year old 46" Panasonic plasma.

Generally the best gaming tv of 2020. Seems LG released a patch that fixes the problem it had with Dolby Vision at 120fps.

Bought it, lets hope I get it tomorrow as the site states  8) 8)

Havent bought a new tv in ages, right now im rocking a 48 inch sony bravia kdl-48w705c

But sadly there is a light bleed or damage at the edge of the screen, no idea how it happened maybe something bumped into it when I was moving but I cant say for sure. Its like a slight light bleeding, and its distracting and annoying and people always ask wow is ur tv broken? It looks like a scratch but on the panel you cant even feel it.

So yea, treat myself with my vacation moneys

The patch is only for the newer 2021 C1 models, but supposedly is coming later for the CX models.

They mostly port games but they do it rather well.
They did the PC version of the latest Tomb Raider for example.

I'm gonna by an LG once I stop being lazy and hit the order button. I just don't want burly amazon delivery stranger men in my house and it's too heavy for me to lift it up 3 flights of stairs (let alone moving my existing tv down 3 flights of stairs).

Sadly my LG OLED now has a small (about 1" large) triangle on the screen where the red pixels won't activate... apparently this isn't just regular burn-in but a defect. Gotta call LG and see if they'd do repairs (my TV was purchased late 2017 but I hear the warranty might still cover this, based on forum articles I've read).

It's possible that you could sort of slide the box up the stairs, but getting some help would be the best way for sure.  When I got a 48" CX, it came in a gigantic padded box and I had help getting it up the stairs.  It wasn't as bad once I got it out of there, but one of the reasons I returned it pretty much immediately was because it was too heavy and barely fit into the space I had for it.   :'(

I then slid it back down the stairs lol

We're house-hunting now and one of the first things I'm gonna do when I get a bigger space is go get a newer model.  Hopefully 65" or larger. :drool

My TV right now is 50" and there really isn't much more room so if I get an LG now it'll be the 55"
