Little birdy says CyberPunk will be on GamePass this spring.

Nice. If it's on PC I'll play it for free, sure.

Donut County is really good. Fun, funny, clever. Beat it in one sitting. Great game for zero oppurtunity cost. Some surprising twists in the narrative too.

You should definitely try dying during the boss fight if you didnít. It gives you a pretty funny cutscene.

Feel like The Medium is the perfect game for Gamepass. Wouldn't try out this game otherwise.

Yeah I died on my first attempt as I read one of the achievements was destroying the Trash King's statue, thought it may have to do with shuffling the boss's bombs next to it... nope lol. Used a guide straight after that  :lol

Made me grin ear to ear as thats some childhood meta gaming shit. A LOT of my friends called extra lives "free man". I often quoted it as a joke, generally just used the term used in most manuals which was, 'extra life'!

EA Play does offer a 99 cent month to new subscribers, might just hit that up, I don't think it's coming to gamepass PC this year considering there's literally been zero update or mention of it in over a month.

Played an hour or so of Medium, really pretty environments, even if on my 1060 it runs at 15 fps when in split screen (on medium settings, ah!).

The thing that bothers me is, as usual, the constant voice over/talking.
Are they so afraid of leaving moments of silence? Are they afraid of letting the audience interpret the inner workings of the character? I don't get it, it's so annoying.

It's a Bloober game.

I only played Layers of Fear, which was alright but got stale halfway through.
I know their stuff is usually considered mediocre.

I expected a visually focused studio like their's to have worked out facial animations a bit better, especially the eyes. But I suppose this explains why their prior games were first-person and had next to no NPCs.

I'm kinda surprised World of Horror is leaving since it hasn't really released (early access game). I wasn't sure how they'd handle early access stuff and just assumed it'd stay until the game is at least released in 1.0, but nope, so back on the steam wishlist it goes.

I dug World of Horror from the one episode I played, but after that figured I'll wait until the game is complete to play the rest.


Oh yeah and to add something to this page's discussion, glad to hear that Blooper continues to suck. I wish I could keep falling upward and even get Akira Yamaoka to write songs for my crappy art project too.

Yo, the medium sucked ass. I got so bored half way through. I love how the game is pretty much a walking simulator with the guise of having some puzzles. Those puzzles end up being, something is stopping you from progressing in to this door. Go to the door beside it. Get something. Now you can progress through the door you were not able to progress through earlier.

Ad Nauseum.

Did you enjoy when the game mentioned how long and tedious it was to get the bolt cutters.

I loved the game but I pretty much played it like Myst or one of those old-school FMV games. While it's interactive, it's obviously not pushing you to master the controls or chase stats & loots, but it's hella fuckin' atmospheric the way it does things.

Of course if the story isn't for you, then the game isn't for you. I think that's why it got such polarizing review scores (from 3/10 to 9/10). Most of the time if you don't like the story in a game, maybe you'll stick it out because of the actual gameplay. That's what my friends that play anime-girl games tell me.

The story isn't the problem. It's more that their writing is absolute garbage.

If you write a story driven game, you can't have like 66% of your game be padding. Either cut the fat or hire better writers to make it fit within the story framework.

Oh yeah the majority of the game is a navel-gazing monologue. I could handle one game a year that's like that but I get why that gets annoying. Maybe it's because I haven't played a walking Sim for several years, but it still felt fresh enough for me and the game is short enough to not overstay its welcome.

got the 1390/1390 in Control. The Alan Wake DLC wasn't very good as Bebpo said. Very little in the way in of story and was just recycled levels from the base game. Obv was a teaser for Control 2/ potential AW crossover which I hope happens. The new weapon was very good and fun to use though!

Started Mass Effect Andromeda... lol. Characters look so goofy coming off Control. This is clearly lesser than the OT, but the environments look great and the music is good. Im just treating it as a generic spaceman game. Gotta be better than Deliver Us the Moon at least

I really enjoyed Andromeda when I played it. Not nearly as good as Mass Effect 1 - 3 but after the patching certainly playable. Just very unfinished and designed right before open world games got a glow up with the likes of Assassins Creed Origins, Witcher 3 and Zelda BOTW in terms of quests and exploration so it's more like one of those Ubisoft cross icons off your list kinda Open World with 2 or 3 different type of objectives and a lot of the same encounters outside of the quite meaty quests / side quests.

I'm getting kinda annoyed by MS splitting the releases between Cloud/Console/PC now. I really expected GamePass to be more unified across platforms.

I looked up these new game additions and what the heck that Ghost of a Tale mouse stealth game has really good graphics and basically looks like an Assassin's Creed game but you're a mouse.

How do games like these even get made. Never heard of it, looks like it has a decent budget, and it's a mouse stealth arpg.


Also is Falconeer actually good?

Ghost of a Tale had quite a bit of buzz some years ago, i played some hours of it in 2017 or '18. (i have it on Steam)
It's nothing like AC, it's a more classic linear stealth game, and it is indeed very pretty, but gets a bit boring tbh.

The guy that made it was an animator at Dreamworks, and i remember following the very early threads on it, on GAF, years ago.

Just finished The Medium, this game is a broken piece of shit. Multiple soft locks, weird colored pixels flying all over the place, characters in the split-screen segments MOVING IN THE WRONG DIRECTIONS AND GETTING STUCK, and the final cutscene wouldnít even trigger after solving the puzzle. I lost over an hour to things not triggering / breaking and me not realizing it, so I just used a walkthrough to get through the last third of the game because I couldnít trust the game to work properly.

Maybe I should stop playing 1.0 versions of games entirely.

The only bug (unless you consider stuttering a bug) I encountered on PC was the dry riverbed you have to climb out of. Climbing the ledge worked, but then I couldn't keep walking. Slid off to the side, then the prompt to climb didn't re-appear. Reloading the save didn't help. I had to reload the one before that and replay the last bit of Thomas' flashback.

I bet they didn't/couldn't test as thoroughly on consoles.

The game also wouldnít survive sleep mode. If I put the Series X into sleep mode, turning it back on and choosing the game would boot it from scratch. Sometimes the QUICK RESUME logo would pop up and then take me to....the title menu. WTF.

BTW Quick Resume works perfectly on everything else so itís not like I was blastin vape fumes into the fan

BTW I know exactly what the sparkly pixels are. When you are rendering shit in shaders and youíre outputting them at levels > 0-1, thatís going to affect your postprocess filter and activate the bloom effect. Somehow they are accidentally shitting out individual pixels with RGB values in the thousands and itís basically making christmas lights

Fuck this game I guess

Same. Also during the conference room puzzle, I glitched it out because I tried doing it in three steps but the game makes you go back to the clipboard every time you find a seat number. If you don't do it in that order, you can't proceed forward and you have to reload the save. I think it's just a sloppy nested if tree.

The game is a unique experience for everyone.

The Mako was actually really fun in that game. You feel like you're doing proper off-roading and have to plan out your approach to any mountains.

I would just aim for the shortest path to the objective and gun it. 8)

It did completely fail when they made you race through the Promethean ruins. Too bouncy for that.

So the ME:A multiplayer is basically the same as ME3 multi (awesome) but not as good (boo) as the game is generally jankier due to the auto-cover and jetpack BS :larry

Can still see myself sinking a few hours into this for some better gear for Singleplayer :larry

Playing on Insanity difficulty and it isnt too bad, just using the tried and true tactical cloak/sniper rifle combo
