What an odd set of things for hackers to steal. Is there some way to monetize that I’m not thinking of?


Monetize? Unclear.

Some possibilities that make problems for EA:

Knock off games coming out of some sketchy studio built on top of the frostbite engine but not licensing any of it? Maybe. Losing years of research and IP to competitors? Maybe.

Release a ton of tools that allow the extraction of game assets or the creation of game assets that can be injected into existing games?

They can also scrub the engine code looking for software faults for potential user land exploits, those could be used to launch arbitrary code on otherwise locked down consoles? That'd be crazy.

Who knows what's really possible, though.

Next action-RPG from From Software (Dark Souls series, Bloodborne, Sekiro, etc) and also George R. R. Martin (GoT writer).

It’s basically Dark Souls with horses, a little Sekiro seasoning, and Game of Thrones plot points … I’m actually pretty psyched, I was worried it wouldn’t be Dark-Souls-esque enough. I really hope there’s a super expensive CE to buy … statue, art book, soundtrack … I’ll take it all.

Sent my RX 580 in for repairs two months ago. Got it back and it worked great. Now it's busted again.

It'll be the Dark Souls of Souls-like games.

I didn't see much of any GRRM in this, seemed pretty much all standard Miyazaki fare to me.

"Dark Souls with a horse" sounds great to me.

I don’t think the turtles would approve of ranch on pizza.

That's not ranch dressing. It's turtle goo.

And just a heads up that Baba Is You, Celeste, and a bunch of other pending games have now been officially added to the Palestinian Aid bundle. I think the total # of pages shot up from 34 to 43.

Any chance of these having Steam keys? Or Celeste specifically? This is one instance where I actually played a freebie from Epic, but it crashes on launch half the time and the Epic version uses OpenGL while steam uses DirectX. Not sure if that'd make any difference with the crashing issue

So I just checked the download page and it comes with both the OpenGL (FNA) and DirectX (XNA) versions. Separate downloads for each one. For the DirectX version, though, you'll have to download the separate XNA Redistributable as mentioned on the page (it won't boot without it installed).

Hm, well that's better than Epic at least. Epic forces you to use OpenGL. Steam gives you the option of both (you can use the beta branch to download OpenGL)

Wasn't even aware that the Epic version used OpenGL back when I played it. Don't think I ever had any crashes myself, fortunately. Lovely game, BTW. Never bothered with the super-difficult extra levels, though.

Never had any problems playing Celeste on Epic, runs smooth as butter both on my desktop (nothing fancy: Gtx1060 3gb) and even on my old MacBook Air with integrated Intel graphics.

 

Celeste was also in the Itch bundle last year, so doesn't mean anything to me, but super excited to play Baba Is You finally!

It runs fine when I can get past the first logo. I have no idea what causes it, I think it's probably some software conflict or something. I've tried every fix I could think of but nothing worked

It's too bad they didn't just add the new games to the last page of the bundle, and instead seemingly mixed them in. Would have been nice to just go to page 34 and start the scrape script there, but instead it's going to have to run on all 43 pages.

This script is much better, in my opinion: 

 

https://gist.github....5dbc46d606ec2aa

 

Instead of one-by-one clicking and waiting for the pages to navigate back and forth, it just adds all the claim forms on the page into an array and async sends the claim requests for each. 

 

Displays a nice button to "claim page" and shows you how many of the games on that page you have claimed out of the total.

 

Doesn't automatically advance the pages, but if you know any Javascript you can add that in easily.

 

Frankly though, I would recommend not using these scripts at all. There's a reason they decided not to bulk activate all these games in your library: you don't want them all there, it's a fucking mess.

 

Wish someone would write a script to claim the games I would ever in a million years ever want to play.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

A Plague Tale sequel (Day 1 in 2022)

 

Speaking of Gamepass, I played Backbone on it the other day. It's kinda bad. The prologue was a 9/10 to get you hooked but the quality takes a big dip after the first act and the story goes completely off the rails near the end. The characters are interesting and dialogue well-written and but none of your choices matter throughout the game. Stealth is introduced early on and practically abandoned in no time. Sound mix is a mess, too. Beautiful game though. The parallax scrolling effect looks great as you walk around. But it's just not all that fun to play and left me wondering what might have been.

That's too bad. It had major blacksad vibes, which I enjoyed, but also could have been much better.
