    A Game of Thrones

    Yeah but she's never burnt innocents. She's always harped on about being the breaker of chains and freeing people from tyranny and then she goes and one ups her dad and actually burns everyone in the city. I'm not happy with this season, everything feels super rushed and not much of it makes sense. So many character arcs have just been disregarded or fizzled out. I'm not claiming to be a writer or anything, I can't write for shit, but there's been a noticeable change since they ran out of book material.
  2. What FMPONE said. On top of all that the materia system was awesome fun to experiment with. I hope that makes it back for the remake. Can't wait to explore Midgar again!
  3. It is a load of drama, I agree, but it's pretty much been made by Randy. I'm kinda outward facing for Rebellion. I take part in a lot of their streams, spend time on their discord and engage with fans on twitter. You see a lot of angry people talking shit about your games but you either ignore it or try to explain why it's that way and you've taken the feedback onboard. You don't go all Randy on a news outlet because you yourself misunderstood what a microtransaction was. No way did GI fuck him lol. I guess Gearbox/T2 don't mind since it's keeping people talking about Borderlands 3 a lot.

    What @dux said. This season has been a massive let down. After the initial excitement of a new episode is gone and I think about what happened I'm just left facepalming. I wish the books were finished so D&D could have just copied what was in them and given us an awesome TV series to go with the books.
  5. Yeah I'm really happy for the team, I'm glad they're seeing success. They got a couple more maps in production, more armour and weapons on the way and mod tools out later in the year! I haven't really seen much negative being said by anyone after the initial server bugs were ironed out.
  6. Would love to see some more Cyberpunk 2077 and any of the big first party titles Nintendo might have for the Switch. Other than that I'm not really looking forward to anything. Maybe Sony can surprise us with another first party title or Valve can actually announce a game - Are Valve even going?
  7. It is basically Chivalry 2. It's made by fans of Chiv but the combat is way more refined than it was in chiv, it's had constant feedback duing development from the alpha and beta backers. It feels really solid. There's none of those weird animation exploits where people would wind up an overhead swing and then spin around to hit you with the sword over their head with their backs bent back. There's also new combo's, morphs and chambers - if you swing your weapon in the same direction the enemies weapon comes from you'll clash weapons and you'll get a chance to quickly attack to counter. There's also horses, siege weapons, building fortifications and tons of armour and weapon customisation (Pretty much all of it can be earned in-game). If you enjoyed Chivalry I really recommend it.
  8. I've not heard about any VR support. The devs are pretty active on their Discord though. Might be worth an ask. Streamed a few games last night and had a lot of fun. I think it had ~50k viewers on Twitch which was nice to see but I guess it's not too surprising as most people go to Twitch to check out new games these days.
  9. This is finally releasing today in about 6 hours time! https://store.steampowered.com/app/629760/MORDHAU/ I believe it's going to be $30(or 30 Euro or £27ish) with 10% off for a short while after release. I've been playing it in beta, got about 20 hours of playtime in, and it's a lot of fun. The combat is great and some of the duels I've had 1 on 1 have have been really exciting. Feels great when you outsmart or trick your opponent into blocking too soon and you lop their heads off. Combat in big groups is as you'd expect, mental. I die a lot to players who have thousands of hours but they aren't unbeatable if you think about what you want to do. Anyway, looking forward to the full release and to some fresh blood to spill.
  10. Saw someone on Reddit has already made Gun Game and silver surfer Mei. Pretty awesome!
  11. Wonder when (if?) we'll see Valve change any of their policies to do with Steam to try and combat this? Do they need to? They've still got a crap load of games on there and still have some big releases. No doubt they will lose a lot more in the future though.
  12. I don't get the hate Epic is getting. I'm so used to having multiple launchers on my computer now that it doesn't faze me at all. I've got Steam for most my games Origin for anything EA Battle.net for anything ActiBlizz GOG for old games UPlay relunctantly EGS for Unreal 4 and now some of the big exclusives. Of course I'd love all my games in one place but that's not going to happen anymore. Everyone wants a piece of the pie Valve has been hogging for 15+ years. Steam isn't what it used to be either.
  13. Nah, sadly not! Would have been fun to be a part of.
  14. Yeah, I think something like bigger worlds, more players, super realistic graphics and zero loading times is the only thing which would draw me to this service. I don't think it'd ever be great for competitve games unless they can get the latency right down which just isn't possible right now - but for the average gamer it'd probably be an ok service.
