Hey if ya'll haven't played Skyrim yet, good news! Now you can pay full price for it again!
I own the regular and the HD version(which I got free on steam somehow) and I still haven't played it. Pretty sure I'm the only gamer who hasn't yet.

I mean, I guess someday I could play it but there's always like 10 games I'm far more interested in at any given time.

I haven't played Skyrim either. Elder Scrolls I always found uninteresting.

Just heard that Amazon is getting into the MMO business. With such a huge company backing it, it might be good and supported. 9/28 launch. But it isn't free in a day and age when a lot of MMOs are free to play.


EDIT: Just watching this review. 1) He says the game comes out at the end of August. Webpage now says 9/28. 2) He thinks it meh. Maybe it got pushed back due to it being lackluster. Can't imagine they can change that much in a month.

Can't wait to see how Amazon screws this up. It'll last about 2 months at best and then they'll cancel the project.

Nick did a stream of it a month ago in beta. I watched some. It looked ok but no reason to buck my trend of not caring about MMOs.

Amazon's game studio have been having a rough go. They've already cancelled one game the studio was working on.


There was also a whole thing about New World killing 30XX video cards a couple weeks back

Introducing, Quake 2021 Remastered -



A free upgrade for current owners on Steam.
But not on GOG.

Bastards. :(

Well fuck, looks like X-parasites are back. Could this mean we'll face SA-X once again?
I doubt it - I think the X are a red herring. I say this becuse of the following:

-Every piece of info for Dread has stated that "a transmission has indicated that the X are on ZDR," not that "the X have survived." My bet is that it's the chozo general that's sent a false transmission to lure people in. Why, I don't know, but...

-We haven't seen any X in gameplay, even though we've seen Samus take out creatures. Furthermore, the X turning the EMMIs against the Federation doesn't work, because as far as I can tell, they're purely mechanical. The chozo general though? That makes more sense.

-Speaking of the EMMIs, they seem like an evolution of the concept of the SA-X in terms of gameplay, so having an SA-X there itself seems redundant.

-How the X would even have got to ZDR is a question that there doesn't seem to be an answer for.

-Speaking subjectively, but while Fusion is my favourite Metroid game, it's a pretty divisive one, and I've come across a few Metroid fans who generally dislike the X ("thought the metroids were bad? Well, here's something worse!"). On the other hand, that they even have Adam in this after Other M may indicate that MercurySteam isn't afraid of controversy, so we'll see.

For you.

Cool. No plans on buying a physical copy, the digital is fine by me. Still was a really fun couples game to play. :)

Well I can’t say I’m disappointed as I never much cared for Injustice, but it would be nice if they were still able to do the fresh new IP that’s been hinted at first and give MK a nice long breather before the next “reboot” or whatever.

Anyways, it’d be good to get away from WB’s clutches and hopefully find a publisher less corporate-minded. But that will probably never happen with a $ sign as big as MK attached. As long as EA/Activison/Ubisoft don’t get it that’s probably the best one can hope for.

This doesn't surprise me in the slightest. WB always kind of prioritized MK over Injustice. Not to mention, MK is the bigger money maker. I do feel bad for the Injustice series and their fans in this case. I honestly have next no interest in WB Games at all. I just wish the best for another realm studios and hope they don't have to go through this crunch bull crap, nor have to look at actual gory or fatal scenes of real life and not get the actual help they need. God knows nobody wants to go through that. It's mainly why I've been hands off with the Mortal Kombat games recently.

I love to imagine the timeline constantly rebooting itself, and Liu Kang having more and more powers everytime he (re)introduces himself to the original Kung Lao. 0_0
