Haven't seen it mentioned but Inkle Studios (80 Days and Heavens Vault) new game Overboard! was released last week. It's sort of a reverse murder mystery set on a boat heading for New York in the 30's. Enjoying the couple of hours I have played so far and would think if you liked 80 Days you will like this.

Also, Control is currently free on Epic which is a fantastic game if you haven't played yet.

Looks like more Synthetik. Which isn't a bad thing, Synthetik ruled.

Don't know what can happen from that but it doesn't seem good for EA. Maybe the hackers can package the data in lootboxes and sell those.

I personally hope the source of Fifa 21 will reveal some juicy details about their lootbox system.

I think it's just a joke about FIFA/EA business practices.

Not sure who will really be willing to pay for that stuff but hopefully something juicy comes out of it. Wouldn't surprise me if FIFA was one of if not the most profitable series of all time, it's SO popular outside the US and the gambling element is high and rakes in so much money.

imo you shouldn't even worry about the DLCs unless you play the game and love it so much you play it through to the end. Usually I don't play games all the way through anyways so what need have I of a DLC for that game

Strong disagree. Buy the best ones and the most relevant to the country/style you want to play. I've never played any Paradox game to the end except for maybe Victoria 2, but I still have hundreds of hours in each of them.

Fair enough, I was thinking more like RPG/action DLCs that just add extra missions/areas/levels for after or close to after you've finished the game. Not ones that change the mechanics of the base game

The funniest thing would be if there is code in the FIFA source that increases your gamble success chance if OBS is detected running

Please don't be rude, it upsets me when I'm trying to be smug

I don't know if this is a thing anymore, but what really pissed me off was when GOTY packages with all the DLC included were actually cheaper than the DLC alone if you already owned the base game. I'm pretty sure Borderlands 2 had that situation at some point at least.

I see it's still coated in a thin layer of blur. It's just subtle enough to make you think maybe your glasses need a bit of cleaning, but no, it's just the game's visual style.

That video looks like it was taken with <60 FPS and compressed very badly in the way which doesn't fit the game content. There is very obvious DoF active for whatever reason and everything is ghosting, which most likely is not the games fault but the video editing.

That "blurry" feel you get from many UE games is often simply how their temporal AA works these days (especially if not touched by the dev and just taken "as is" from the engine defaults). On PC at least you can usually counter that with donwsampling (not seldom even included in the game options, otherwise availabe at nvidia for many years as "DSR") and sharpening to make the picture crisp. Especially low-demand games.

That's probably it.

RE: Chivalry 2, picked it up on the thread's recommendation. If you're going to get it you should do it now while they still have that $10.00 coupon on Epic.

I have to say since I started using Playnite to launch everything I really don't mind everyone and their dog having their own launcher as much as I thought I would. Now if they start breaking Playnite or it stops updating, I'll be back at square one, but for now it's gravy. The big advantage Playnite has over adding everything to Steam is that Playnite has figured out how to work with Xbox Game Pass games.

Death Stranding is getting a directors cut. Which is weird to me because there was no-one stopping Kojima from doing whatever he wanted anyway.

And also no-one exists who actually asked for such a thing. Therefore making perfect sense that it is what Kojima is delivering.

I love weird, "gently caress it lets go for it" type of mashup like this. Gameplay animation looks to keep high quality Metal Slug is known for.

Now a Salt and Sanctuary 2 with online coop is totally cool. I just hope they manage to get the balance right for this one - the first one was full of dead items and traps in the character builds. Mods fixed that, so clearly it was *possible* to do it better.

If you guys like Metal Slug you should try Mighty Goose... probably the best game I've gotten in the past month, it's fun as gently caress, fast paced arcade shooter action

Pretty sure most people would rather see almost anything else, especially something new, rather than more Death Stranding. It was fine I guess but I think there was plenty of it already. That's how I see it, and a LOT of people would not even come close to agreeing with you that Death Stranding was one of the greatest games of the last decade. That is a very niche opinion
