Have they streamlined it in anyway since the Xbox release? I recall it being quite impenetrable with all the systems and menus and bullshit :confused
You mean between the OG and New Genesis?  As far as I could recall, it added more dial menus and d-pad selection menus built around a controller more, but still relatively convoluted. :doge

How the fuck does Switch pro controller have insane battery life but PS4/PS5 controllers are shit battery life?

I'm like 25 hours into XB3 on a single charge of the pro controller and it still shows full battery. Meanwhile I use the PS5 and watch a movie for two nights and the controller is down to one bar.

It's pretty pathetic how bad the battery life is in the PS controllers. Don't know what the fuck they are doing wrong but they need to learn some stuff from Nintendo there.

OTOH, my Switch Lite itself seems to drain battery in Sleep mode when it has no business doing any fucking thing. Leave it on a desk for 2 days, it's at 30%. WTAF?

It downloads new content in sleep mode, which means that it's running some processes all the time. The controller can do nothing when it's turned off.

Edge reviews are interesting.

Gave Live-a-Live a 9, XB3 an 8, but most of all they gave the new game by Her Story creator Sam Barlow, Immortality a 10/10 which is pretty rare from them. Guess I'll be playing that next after XB3.



Story/setting/concept seems interesting for an FMV detective game.

Itís weird my Switch Pro and Joycons drain at idle faster than anything else. Say I leave a DS4 on my shelf for a month without touching it, usually good to go when I pick it up. Switch stuff is usually dead or dying. At least nothing is as bad as the Wii U tablet.

Square Enix has figured out that the best way to promote their games is to go ALL IN on the cringe like they did with CHAOS.

Foremost what I like about it is that it's abstract enough to draw your own interpretation, so your befuddlement doesn't surprise me. :P

For me it's the contrast between a teenage zoomer stressing about the world and not being able to change anything, and then a bunch of CoD clips play (a series which itself refuses to change) and the 2004-era indie-adjacent "Don't Break Me Down" throwing my mind back to the times I was the same age saying the same things.

Basically "war, war never changes."

The zoomer in question having the profession "Twitch streamer" and being surrounded by plush comfort makes it even more hilarious, just a visual hypocrisy between stated ideals and actual living conditions.

It's 30 Seconds To Mars, so it's literally Jared Leto too. :lol

One way to think about it: take it completely seriously. Imagine that someone put these together to make some kind of intentional earnest statement, like they were thinking "this is so badass, going to put this epic rant, my favorite song and me headshotting dudes in CoD" and put it out to the world because everyone else was going to feel the same way and get inspired by the awesome.

I guess my confusion was I couldn't tell if the person making the rant made the video and was a CoD streamer who was ranting and then playing CoD.

Or if someone else took the video of the streamer ranting and then mixed it with their own CoD footage?

I'm still not entirely sure which it is...

It's an insane (in its own right) monologue by some Twitch streamer that (like so many these days) doesn't appear to actually play games:


It might just be random CoD clips, I have no idea why someone actually chose to put these things together and then score it with Jared Leto's most famous song but I'm glad they did, it justifies humanity.

Appreciate the explanation.

I just don't have time or interest to follow internet culture and I've been so left behind on streamers/tik-toks/etc.. culture that it all flies over my head at this point.

My RTS starved brain is pretty excited by this C&C clone



It's really a super blatant clone to the point where I wouldn't be surprised f ex-westwood people are working on it. But hey, if EA doesn't make any C&C I'll happily take the off brand one

I don't think a low-budget euro publisher can get much better than this. Gothic, Outcast, low budget Alone in the Dark, random licenced games - it's like I'm back in a big box PC retail section during the late 90s.  :-[

Speaking of Joss Whedon, the voice in this trailer sounds like they are trying to channel Nathan Fillion doing Captain Hammer.

I like your explanation, but every time I come back to my switch and wake up from sleep it wants to download an update for the system software or Fortnite, so itís not doing that stuff while itís asleep and has power.
