Nooo!  I was hoping they were remaking GTA IV in Unreal 5 with 4K HDR support and removing all DRM and making DLC for it.

Picked up a few open world Ubisoft games recently and so far I have not been disappointed:

In olden times, grievances not even nearly as severe as GFWL were punishable by death. It's mere existence borders on evil, while it's nonexistence now causes much pain, suffering and minor inconveniences, some like the world has never known. This lapse in logic seems painfully obvious and unavoidable, considering it's been like 5 years since that shittyness got the axe.

GFWL sucks, but Rockstar sucks even more for not removing it by now.

Would have actually liked to play it but for SecuRom.

Bill O'Brian is terrible.  One of those "we play to win every time" coaches.   Nice fake punt moron.  You were up 24-0. 

Look at the bright side: the Houston Oilers are in the AFC Championship game!

 

 

But speaking of Houston teams blowing massive leads...

Single-player campaign in GTA4 base-game actually is really good. That GTA probably has my favorite story & lead character (Nico) out of the GTA games. Mind you, GTA4 is way more realistic & grounded, compared to pretty much...every other GTA game since GTA3. Each DLC for Episodes from Liberty City got less (The Lost and the Damned) and less (The Ballad of Gay Tony) with each DLC.

 

Don't get me wrong, I really loved GTA5 and all - but that's the best overall package of all of the GTA games, IMHO. The game's a blast (especially as Trevor!!); the characters are really good even though they all remind me of another character from a GTA title (i.e. Michael reminds me of Tommy Viccetti; Franklin reminds me a lot of CJ from SA; and Trevor....is just basically Trevor as he plays like how most players play GTA in wanton destruction & madness mode).

 

Vice City is my favorite GTA and always will have a special place in my heart. Might not be the best one overall (i.e. that's GTA5 for me) and not have aged entirely well - but it was so great & fresh, back in the day. A stunning improvement over GTA3 for me (yes, also loved GTA3 - but GTA was a technical mess when it hit; Vice City was not). I really just loved the whole Miami vibe, the cast of characters, the Scarface references (yes, I love that movie!), the 80's setting/era, the music stations (it['s so 80's!!), the look, and everything about it. It felt like GTA went artsy & did a period piece.

All great ideas, IMHO...but probably not happening.

If anything, I'd guess...they'll move it over the Steamworks or (more likely) their own Rockstar Launcher.

 

While we're at it, I'd love to see some GTA5 Single-Player DLC too...but probably not happening either.

GTA Online, for better and/or for worse, is where the real $'s at for them.

Okay, I've seen this happen a lot, not just here, but on Discords I'm on, but do people not know how to take screenshots?  Too lazy to do so?  Taking a picture of a computer screen just seems so dated.

Lazy and dated...sounds about right! I take in-game pics so rarely that I wouldn’t know what key to hit or where to find a pic I took in uplay. Not to mention I’m sitting away from the screen using a gamepad. Thanks for caring though, Fox.

Gamepad makes sense.  Ubi is actually way easier.  F12 just like steam and default is a folder in your pictures or documents.  Steam is a PITA.  F12 but then hidden in each games folder within the steam folder in program files so "easiest" way is to navigate to screenshots in Steam and hit the "Show on disk" button.  That button is harder to find with the new "improved" UI.  

 

That sounds like a pet peeve.

No, just curiosity, more so on Discord than here because I assume the Discord crowd is a little more tech savvy than your usual CAG boomer.  I assumed on Discord it's people using their phones and easier to just snap a pic and upload than go through the trouble of a screenshot.

Can't wait.  It's a shame they still haven't given a release date yet.

Wario's tweet about it was something like "Stardew Valley + 6 other games for $10."

I don't already own Stardew Valley, so I'm checking the Barter cesspool. Third tier Humble Bundle titles remain in relatively low supply.

I'm of the general belief that if a game takes 10+ hours to finally start becoming enjoyable, it's probably not that good of a game to begin with. The lone exception to that was Stardew Valley. Those first 10 hours were such a boring, tedious grind-fest but the next 109 hours were pretty cool.

I played 3 new games on game pass this weekend. I was really looking forward to Lonely Mountain Downhill since it had gotten some acclaim and it sounded like my kind of game. It's cool, but the presentation is a little lackluster and the perspective is kind of a cool choice, but I feel like it makes the game overly difficult to play. Not that the game is hard, but with the low quality visuals and the game focusing almost entirely on you navigating terrain, choosing that camera angle seems like a bad idea.
 

While that was a bit of a disappointment, the other 2 were nice surprises. My Friend Pedro is a side-scroller shooter/platformer with the vibe of Hotline Miami mixed with Deadpool. It's not a really hardcore game like Hotline though; it's more of a casual shooter so far and I'm really enjoying the gameplay and tone.
 

Played a game of Frostpunk and lost because I didn't know what to prioritize. Started another game and ended up winning on Monday night. Pretty surprised I won my second game, but there's other scenarios, difficulties and an endless mode so there's definitely more to do although I feel like I might've seen most of the game in that 1 playthrough. I really enjoyed it, but strategy games can get repetitive so fast.

You're welcome.

Hope you've enjoyed the free games that you've probably backlogged.

Wait a minute, are we supposed to be playing these things? Thought it was a Pokemon situation and just have to collect them all.

I think a lot of this long games that take a bit going - once, they (dev's realize) it's an issue, they really should supply a save, chapter start, or something...just to get past the boring and/or tutorial parts.

 

I'm sure games like DA:I (i.e. Hinterlands problem); ME:A (has the Hinterlands problem AGAIN on first planet!); Witcher 1 (the game & story takes a bit to get going); Assassin's Creed 3 (base-game) [it gets going once Connor gets older]; FF13-1 (takes a while to teach you the game's lingo, tutorials for game systems, etc); and probably numerous others that are loaded w/ tons of systems, content, story, backstory, complexities, and/or anything of that sort....could really use this.

As long as you buy games from my Epic Store & continue to blow money on Fortnite skins, do what you like w/ those games.
