I want EGS to be a good storefront. I like the idea of more competition on the PC market. I would be using it more often if they could guarantee their security was more secure. I think that one day it will be, but that day is not today. Link inside.


Hot take: The practice of crunch should be illegal. It's not healthy for anyone to work 12 hours days, 7 days a week, for 6 months or more. Ultimately, it's ineffectual. Look at Anthem as an example. It needs to go away. Someone should step in to do that.


Unpopular opinion: I would love if Sega did a remake of Sonic '06. Something polished, all the fixes, and the content that was cut. I'd check that out.


Not only is Ubisoft donating towards the Notre Dame restoration effort, they're giving out free copies of AC:Unity. Link inside.


Game developers need a union. Jason Schreier, who you might know from Kotaku, wrote a neat article on this. I'll post a link inside.


I think if there was a game that'd make me want to buy it day 1 from the Epic Game Store, it'd probably be Borderlands 3.


This is the most elaborate attempt at a confession to what's on those flash drives I have ever seen.


Sekiro reminds me alot of my first time with Demon's Souls. You spend so much time learning the game's mechanics and exploring the level. It was so fun. Sekiro is just like that first Demon's Souls play through. It's good, fun, stuff.


I wish DMC 5 had stronger multiplayer. It's weird saying that for a DMC game, but having three people on screen doing crazy shit is a blaast. Working off each other's combos is fun. I can't wait to see the combo exhibitions.


So the Power Ranger game is a budget title and looks like one too But it has Justin Wong working on it And it looks like it plays ALOT like Marvel vs Capcom Think with good netcode and good gameplay, this could end up being a sleeper hit.


Anyone else noticing that Capcom has been releasing killer games left and right. Wild to think that a couple years ago people thought they were done. RE2 and 7, MHW, a new Mega Man, and now another great DMC game. They are on a roll.


Oh my gosh. THQ Nordic FUCKED up. They decided to host an AMA right. But instead of going to reddit, they decided hey let's be a little counter-culture and post it on 8chan. The same 8chan that hosts child porn, has open air racism, and white supremacy.


Does anyone remember the article posted here a couple months ago about Google wanting to test it's streaming platform? Did you participate? If you did, check your uplay account. They gifted everyone in it a free copy of AC: Odyssey. What a nice gesture.


Anyone giving Anthem a shot? Think it's neat and flying around like Iron Man is dope, but at the same time I feel like if I paid $60 vs. the $15 for EA's PC Origin club thing I would've been disappointed a bit.


Couple hours ago I was making fun of the idea of Tetris BR. Couple hours later and Tetris 99 is way more fun than I thought it'd be. In fact, I'd say everyone with a Switch should try it out. It is an absolute gem of a game.


I liked all the things especially the things I really liked.


Resident Evil 2 was released almost 21 years ago. Holy hell I feel old.


Can we agree that teasing a console/PC only for it to be a mobile game is objectively a massive fuck you? It seems like the worst thing to do as a game company.


John Smith before VR: These VR games look kinda dumb. John Smith after VR: I AM EATING A DONUT. WHAT A GOOD TIME THIS IS. PSVR is neato and way more immersive than I could have ever thought.


First real tourney of Smash Ultimate is looking really good right now. People should check it out! https://www.twitch.tv/vgbootcamp


I don't think its said enough just how much music is packed into Smash Ultimate. Just 700 something tracks by default including both original songs and some remixes of those themes with full info on who composed it. All that could be it's own package.


I've been reading on other websites that the $5 atoms Bethesda is offering could be seen as a form of compensation for the false advertising. People who bought that collector's edition SHOULD NOT be accepting anything from Bethesda until the lawsuit ends.


Teaser trailer for the new FFXIV expansion is up. We got so much news from the keynote. New areas, new jobs, a new heavily teased race, and blue mage which is gonna be playable before the expansion in a new limited job role. Really exciting stuff for 14.
