From the store page it looks like RAGE 2 is getting a 'deluxe' edition where you won't have to buy RAGE coins to get the DLC.

That's the same content in the Deluxe Edition that you can get from Retail (for PC) and digitally [for Bethesda.Net Launcher].

 

Terrormania DLC is not listed there and still is missing (even on Epic).

 

In other words, you'll still need to buy (500) Coins to get the last DLC.

Given how the WC3 remake turned out... I'm skeptical.

Activision is not using the team that made WC3 Remake.

 

They put Vicarious Visions on-board for D2R, who recently did the Crash Bandicoot NSane Trilogy Remasters & the Tony Hawk 1+2 Remasters.

Probably asking too much to hope for some kind of deluxe physical release ... I miss big Blizzard releases getting an overpriced box of swag plus discs.

IGN with all kinds of details on Overwatch 2 from BlizzCon 2021:

I haven't touched Overwatch in forever and wont anymore, but some of these changes look unique for the sequel. PVE was the worst in the original, so they can't go much worse than that. I'm usually not crazy for story in the multiplayer shooters, but who knows. I do like the skill trees. Diablo 2 frankly looks like a bore to me, but I had my fill ages ago and the remaster looks good, but not really anything great either. Just my opinions of course. The arcade thing is pretty cool though as Lost Vikings should be remembered.

Mafia: Definitive Edition:

After 11.2 hours according to Steam, Mafia: Definitive Edition with its Story Mode/Campaign comes to an end...and indeed, what an end it was!

Mafia: Definitive Edition is nothing short of great, modernizing & improving on some of the issues of the original classic Mafia wherever necessary; much improved combat & gunplay (namely from Mafia 3's combat system); much improved graphics; and a retelling the classic Mafia's story. If you love gangster movies and video games: this is one here for the ages, as the voice-acting, dialogue, cinematics, and everything is excellent here.

When it comes down to it: this is an excellent remake of the original game that fans of the original classic and especially gamers who never played the original classic should take on.

Mafia: Definitive Edition is an offer that no gamer should refuse.

Mafia III: Definitive Edition - Stones Unturned DLC:

 

After a little over 3 hours with this DLC, the Stones Unturned DLC is now also complete & in the books. This action-packed extravaganza is nothing short of awesome, despite its brevity. Donovan from the CIA is having his past come back to haunt him & needs to take on this foe in this very important string of missions here...with your assistance, without getting too far into spoiler turf & into the story here.

Just like M3's other DLC's, this also introduces a new mechanic & more mission variety again. This time, you will have Donovan with you as a AI-controlled teammate for...well, pretty much the entire DLC. No doubt about it, you'll definitely need him & need to revive him (when he gets shot & knocked down), as these shootouts in this action-packed DLC are often in big open-spaced arenas of sorts with lots of enemies to take down. As usual, per Mafia 3 standards here, the voice-acting, storytelling, dialogue & story is again excellent.

There's very little complain about here with this DLC, as the DLC's action-packed & a non-stop roller-coaster ride, once again adding even more variety to help aid the tons of repetitive issues that plagued M3 base-game's content.

Simply put: this is another short & excellent DLC overall here that is a must play.

For anyone that has played any of the dlc for Control, how much would you recommend it? Was debating giving it a shot on gamepass to see how my new pc handles it but if the dlc is worthwhile I might just wait and grab the ultimate edition for $15 next time its on sale and play doom eternal on gamepass instead.

The dlc is fun but shorter then Ted Cruz's plane ride

The original endless runner Canabalt is on sale on Steam for 89 cents as part of the daily deal.

 

https://store.steamp...58960/Canabalt/

 

I had this game on my wish list since forever, and it had not been on sale in quite a while.

It seems a bit going against Overwatch's design paradigm to be in a game, looking at a hero, and not have a clear idea what skillset you're up against. But I guess there's an argument that breaking from the very clear-cut abilities of each hero introduces some element of surprise that could spice the game up a bit. More room for communication between teammates, identifying each enemy hero's build etc. 

 

Also much more room for me to be paralyzed in multiplayer deciding which build to go for, ending up building out an off-meta build of a hero that's useless to me and having to start all over again etc. Also more room for me to decide to never even bother dropping into the game each season because it feels like way too much of an investment to build out a hero.

 

Unless the skill trees are just something you unlock each tier of one-time for each hero, and then you get to select your build-out independently each match?

Vampire: Bloodlines 2 update...and it ain't good at all:

https://www.bloodlin...2_20210223_noty

 

Info:

- Hardsuit Labs is no longer the lead development team for Bloodlines 2.

- Bloodlines 2 is not making 2021. 

- No new release date for Bloodlines 2.

- They (Paradox) are no longer taking pre-orders for it, for the time being.

Bloodlines 2 sounds like a wait for heavy discount whenever it comes out. Sad, cause Bloodlines was good albeit extremely buggy when it came out. Will wait and see. I wont wait for it at all.

Looks like it wasn't totally off topic when I posted about Days Gone a few weeks ago. Confirmed to be coming to PC this spring.

Fixed. I’n not blaming Troika necessarily, as I have no real insight into how development for their games worked and who might have ultimately been at fault, but those games certainly have a history of development troubles, so if anything, it’s entirely fitting that Bloodlines 2 shouldn’t be exempt from that.

Video from YongYeah on the Bloodlines 2 situation.

 

Spoiler

 

So, it looks like there's already another dev team at work on salvaging, revamping, and/or doing whatever on Bloodlines 2.

It's around 1m15s into the video.

 

So, hmmm...who's working on it now?

 

Could it be the team (Cyanide) that did Werewolf TA: Earthblood?

 

There's also been rumors of Microsoft trying to buy Paradox too, so...if Paradox can't save the project, maybe Microsoft swoops in and buys Paradox?

 

I mean, heck - at Microsoft, they literally have RPG houses like Bethesda; Obsidian (with Leonard Boyarsky and Tim Cain, from Bloodlines 1 fame); and InXile all under the Microsoft umbrella.

 

EDIT:

Surely, if anyone could save the project properly, somehow - you could just look at those Microsoft RPG studios, as long as M$ buys out Paradox.

Yup.

And supposedly there are a bunch more Sony titles in the works to make it to PC.  I'm hoping for Bloodborne, Demon's Souls and Ghost of Tsushima.

Awesome @ more PS games hitting PC.

Your list there sounds good to me!

 

Hopefully, also God of War (Reboot) comes here to the PC too.

The more the better. I'm pretty impressed with the the PS5 updates for Days Gone and Tsusima and of course Demon's Souls looks and plays great so I'll pass on the PC versions but I still hope they are coming. Bloodborne is the big one since that game desperately needs some optimization but I also feel like it's the least likely of the bunch. Even though it's a fairly recent game I'd love for Bluepoint to take it on.

Dying Light 2.

 

As if we ain't heard enough madness w/ Bloodlines 2...

...Here's some stuff on Dying Light 2 and its troubled development, summed-up via IGN.

Hardsuit Labs did great work on Killing Floor 2 so I'd bet my money on them not being the issue for Bloodlines.

Hellraid was relegated to crappy DLC for Dying Light 1.
