NOOOO, I don't have lifetime access to Peppa Pig's Birthday Bash, so therefore the entire service is a scam! :maf

Meanwhile, Daddy Sony put two new games on PS+ this month (one of them is VR only), POG CITY!  :wong

This is what Playstation fans actually believe.

Lol homeboy is getting "clowned" by the "clap backs" in the comments.

Gamers are some of the biggest nincompoops ever. Crying about games leaving service, wanting physical copies of everything, needing to own everything "forever". JFC man society isn't natural and the sun's going to explode. wgaf

There's a difference between game dropping from GamePass and a game being delisted from XBL.
If you love the game so much that you can't do without it (after it was playable on GamePass for over 6 months) you can easily find them on sale.

Half the people complaining 1. Don't use GamePass or 2. Didn't play and download these on time.

Yep. And a lot of my favourite games on Gamepass have been pump and dump titles. Play em once, get all achievements, delete, never have desire to play again. See stuff like Edith Finch, Donut County, Observation. Even Plague Tale

Ugh, didn't mean to include that dumb comment under Wario's tweet. I just wanted to share the games leaving so that people here would get one last chance to play them.

Edit: Nvm, just realized it was Joe who shared it. Time for bed.

The campaign DLC for Dishonored 2 apparently dropped on game pass. This is fuckin good shit. At least 7 hours here. Longer, the way I play Arkane games.

Pretty sure Horizon DLC was still paid.

More recently Outer Worlds DLCs are paid. I can't think of any game pass game with DLC.

He is talking about Death of the Outsider I think, there was no campaign DLC for Dishonored 2

Dishonored (did have some campaign DLC)
Dishonored 2 (no DLC afaik)
Death of the Outsider (standalone game that is basically Dishonored 2 Epilogue)

Oh, OK, I was confused. I'd assumed that Death of the Outsider was a DLC and not a standalone. Absolutely worth playing, the art direction in this game fuckin kills me it's so good.

Yeah, Arkane's art direction is stellar.

Wasn't Dishonored's art style by someone that worked on Half-life 2? Because it's basically that same good style.

Yeah he honestly "made" Half Life for me.
Also the only reason why i even attempted to play Dishonored (though i couldn't be bothered to continue).

He also worked on the Nazi Berlin in Wolfestein TNO.

Trying out Like a Dragon, I'm kind of surprised that Kamurocho looks worse than in Judgment which was two years earlier. Might just be the stylized lighting in Judgment. I'd assume textures & geometry are the same.

I think the majority of the game takes place outside Kamurocho so that could be it? I'm up to chapter 4 now, really enjoying it. I'm playing with Japanese VA becuase you're not supposed to play these games in english, right?

In unexpected news the new Space Jam movie has a game tie-in. Free day 1 on gamepass. Streets of Rage/Final Fight clone. Could be OK for a quick playthough and if the completion is easy.

Yakuza 1 on PS2 had a relatively big English cast (Michael Madsen, Mark Hamill, Eliza Dushku).
It still seems like THE series to play in Japanese though.

You don't get an English option except in Yakuza 1 (PS2) and Judgment, anyway

Played the demo on Steam a year ago (?). Felt good. The constant weapon changing is fun, but as you might imagine, it can be difficult to judge how a pot plant compares to a club.

It's pretty too, even though it's supposed to be parodying corporate art.

Games with Gold has been largely ignorable with the advent of gamepass, but Midway Arcade Origins compilation for the 360 is free in July. I'll scoop this as there's some decent titles here and it's good to have these kinds of things on your HDD for local coop. Plus the achievements look easy

 :bolo

lies


Pillars 1 is the best crpg in the last two decades. I'll fight anyone that tries to name anything better. The character writing and the world building are second to none. Really good questing too. It's more than a bit derivative of Baldur's Gate in structure and D&D/BG in combat (though Pillars II combat is a lot more original and improved), but the writing is really, really good.

The DLCs are excellent as well and build up Pillars II, which doesn't really deliver but is still a good game too.

I guess Act I is a little slow, but that's always been the case for crpgs so it doesn't feel slow to me.

And most people think Torment is bad.

crpgs are pretty subjective. Like having just played D:OS2 this year I'd say with no doubt D:OS2 plays better than Pillars 1. But for me story/characters/writing is king in an rpg and Pillars 1 is still the best there. Durance is the best written videogame character almost...ever?

Avellone is apparently a total shithead and cancelled from the industry because of that which as a side effect is gonna bring down the overall writing in crpgs since as shitty as he is he was one of the best rpg writers in the industry and had a hand in a lot of crpgs.

That and I felt it didn't really take many chances with the fantasy worldbuilding. Tyranny was shorter and had a really interesting setup, POE2 had a better story and more diverse world.

Game Pass has too many games.

Not a bad problem to have, but I keep installing shit every week and haven't even booted any of them. Installed Cris Tales; The Ascent, now Art of Rally and Boyfriend Dungeon. There's other stuff I'd install too if I'd actually play it like replaying Katamari w/Reroll or Lumines. Project Wingman & Last Stop seem interesting too.

Just too many damn games! I think I used Game Pass more when it had like one game worth playing a month.

I like the tone and art style, but the combat felt uneven and button mashy. Maybe it is better balanced than I've felt; I mean, I think Tekken is a button-mashy series, too.
