Good lineup tho.

btw, I'm pretty excited to see what a PC port-up can do for Y6 (for when I get to it in 5 years...).

I hear Empire of the Sun is very good. I finally tried Desperados 3 the other day and yeah that's a cool game.

So we do get Sqadrons, but need to play it on the EA thing? I kept seeing this Gamepass ad on Twitch, mentioning EA games on PC, and i was like "WTF are you talking about?" That'd explain it.

Ok, got EA Play working. Had to make a new EA account because my Origin/EA account is somehow linked to another Xbox account? Idk.


Looking through the list, should I even try Anthem for the single player?

Got all cheevs in Undertale without beating the game lol (I'm up to final boss).

Incredible shit though, like the xbox 'exclusive content' and achievements actually take the piss out of xbox achievement whores. Its brilliant. Great game, I laughed, I cried, I thought.

Started Wolfenstein the New Order. Seems pretty sweet, shit the game does right:
- Super fast and smooth action, very little loadtimes
- Im playing on hardest difficulty (Uber) which is challenging but pretty fair so far.
- Game rewards getting into the fray and kicking ass quickly rather than hiding behind shit and regen health (ie. CoD on Veteran)
- Collectibles are shown on the map: every game should do this. Amazing
- Easy achievements, no bullshit dead multiplayer GaaS or DLC

Undertale had the best achievements other than Nier Automata where you could just buy them from the in-game store.

The games are philosophically pretty similar too.

Just put 4 hours into Prey. Holy fuck this game is good. Like System Shock 2 good.

Also they finally unfucked the Xbox version, I know the console releases of this were SUPER broken, but now we coo

Genesis Noir seems sort of interesting in a museum exhibit art piece way. Very little gameplay so far, just a bunch of arty stuff.

But nice looking animation and music. Always a sucker for Noir stylings.

God almighty...
This EA desktop app is shit.
To uninstall games you have to go through the control panel of windows, which is already odd (unless there's some hidden button somewhere in it).
But then i uninstalled the app itself, because fuck it, and there's still a 500MB folder in program files i can't delete and the program is STILL installed in the computer (if i click the exe it just starts up like normal) despite not appearing anymore in the programs list, in the control panel.
EA is like fucking malware, goddamn.

Prey is a good game and we deserve a sequel to it. If you get tripped up by it do yourself a favor and stick with it till the end. The Mooncrash DLC is wild fun.

I stopped playing Prey because it's exactly Bioshock in space. You comb or loot everything in the area, turn loot into resources, use resources to get upgrade points or ammo/gear, kill all enemies, go to objective, rinse and repeat.

Not a terrible formula, but I enjoy the atmosphere of Bioshock games more than a scary space station.
OH!

This game is my shit because it's basically:

- Wake up in a spooky base
- Take your time checking out the cool environment, reading spooky notes and taking shit out of trash cans
- Recycle the trash can shit into cool weepon
- Shoot monsters from time to time but let turrets do the majority if the work if possible
- Repeat

Yeah it's straight up System Shock 2 / Bioshock but I'm cool with it, cloning that kind of game is hard as fuck anyway and nobody else seems to be doing it and it's included in Gamepass so I'm having a greeeeeat time

That being said I am 6 hours in and this game is still pretty stingy with the Neuromods. I've barely gotten any of the tech tree going and unless they open up the faucet I dunno what I'm gonna do

Just a heads up that there are achievements for not getting any upgrades and such - basically you will miss out on all the cool abilities and shit

Oh shit, they just added the Destroy All Humans remake.

I'd been eyeing buying that on Steam for a while. I never played the original and people seem to really like it and the remake seems a high quality effort. Will give this a try.

It's like GTA Mars Attack?

Yeah, the main thing is that it's a straight port, outside of the graphics, of the original. Which means sorta GTA III type clone in terms of design. It's got a lot of PS2-era legacy crap in the open world that other games have moved past.

For "free" though, I'd say check it out if you're interested. You can get a couple hours of it before it gets too repetitive.

Itís THQ doing a Mars Attacks version of GTA III on a THQ budget. It didnít grab me at the time.

Lego City Underground is a better tribute.
