Thanks for the replies guys I'll be grabing the standard edition and wait 3-4 weeks for the free upgrade/update.

Getting Life is Strange: Before the Storm deluxe for $17.49. Missed out on the Amazon glitch but have earned enough credit from Amazon no-rush shipping to get this one "free."

Started it yesterday and beat the first episode, which was really good for the topic it's covering. Excited to see it through and play the bonus episode when that's out early next year.

If you have any desire to play this game more than a few weeks, I think that's a mistake. You have to catch up on two years worth of DLC. If you want it, you'll have to pay for it. It'll be difficult to earn it all at this point. Spend up the $40 for the Deluxe or the Arcade Edition in January. Earning DLC was a good way to go for those that played semi regularly starting from back in 2016.

I almost got Skyrim but remembered my backlog means I can wait a bit still.

The DLC is pretty decent. Whether or not you will make it that far will depend on how much you enjoy the game. It is a step below BB in my opinion. Although the gameplay overall is much faster. It’s one of my favorite games of the year.


CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

destiny for a few years has prepared me for a game that hates me for playing lol

Seriously though, thx for input.

But the free upgrade will give the 12 remaining chars from season 1 and 2.If I'm correct the $40 version gives that too plus some skins which I'm not interested but maybe that'll change once I've invested time in the online.Guess I will think this through and decide in a few days.

The update in January will give you the new Arcade mode, the updated UI, the new V-Triggers, and any other rebalances that happen. It's not giving you the characters, stages and costumes. You'll have to buy them or earn them. Earning them takes time. At first money will flow, but then it'll slow down and you'll have to play a lot online to keep getting it. If you waste that easy in game money on the existing DLC, you won't have anything for the 2018 DLC. If you decide later to buy the DLC, you'll either have to wait for a sale on just the season passes, or pay more money in the end to get them.

Nier Automata won best score at The Game Awards. Deserving winner.

 

Something new from From Software was teased with next to no details. Looks like it could be Bloodborne 2.

 

 

What Remains of Edith Finch won Best Narrative. Great choice.

 

Campo Santo's new game In The Valley of the Gods announced for 2019, but is PC-only at the moment.

 

 

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus won Best Action Game.

 

Cuphead won Best Art Direction. Easy choice. Also won Best Indie Game.

 

Carol Shaw, creator of River Raid, received the Industry Icon Award as one of the first female designers in the industry.

 

SoulCalibur VI was announced for 2018 on PS4.

 

 

The first season for Star Wars Battlefront 2 was shown, which is free for everyone.

 

Fortnite's Battle Royale mode has a new 50v50 mode coming to it tonight for a limited time.

 

 

New trailer for Death Stranding is on now. It's almost too weird.

 

Witchfire was announced from the people behind The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Bulletstorm.

 

Dreams (Media Molecule) got a new trailer with a 2018 release date.

 

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice won awards for Best Game for Impact and Best Audio Design. The correct choices for those awards. Melina Juergens won Best Performance, which is great for a non-actress that was the video editor for the game.

While not a deal on a video game, Bloodborne: The Card Game is on sale for about half off today on Amazon. Apparently it's really good if you like playing games without controllers. Thought there could be some interest here:

I played it without knowing anything about the game and it was enjoyable.

The From trailer is definitely an explicit reference to Shadow Tower (PSX and PS2 series), a spiritual ancestor of Demon's Souls, itself a spiritual descendant of King's Field. So, another Kinshadsoulsborne entry.

What the Fuck did I just watch? And since when does an 8+ minute video count as a teaser? I probably would've been more interested if there had been less because that made no sense whatsoever. But because it's Kojima and Daryl Dixon people will go apeshit over it.

Considering Kojima has so far made literally perfect games on Playstation, Playstation 2, and Playstation 3, I think he's earned some amount of excitement over his work? Although I honestly haven't seen much excitement over Death Stranding, mostly just cynical comments from people expressing how much better they think they are than anyone excited for the game.

kojima really hasnt made a great game since the ps2 and im a mgs fanboy. peace walker has been his only solid game since snake eater launched. the rest have had major issues in one way or another. i have really low expectations for whatever this game is, it already looks incredibly stupid in my eyes.

It’s disappointing that there’s no conference for PSX this weekend. I always enjoyed them. They should have saved their PGW announcements for PSX.

I had no idea they weren't doing a conference.. I was thinking last night "why are you not saving this for PSX?"  I guess it makes sense as to why Death Stranding and Dreams were shown there as well as the Andrew House swan song.  I thought the From Software teaser was a setup for the PSX announcement.  Oh well, I guess it makes more sense to do it this way since Sony probably doesn't want to be absent from the game awards to save stuff for their show.. but at the same time they got snubbed pretty hard last night as well..

There is some sort of address tonight at 8pm PST / 11pm EST. Sony has already stated that this is not a conference and there won’t be really any pomp and circumstance. I guess we’ll see.

Was just in the middle of typing the same thing haha.

 

Cool that it's only 5.5 gigs, kinda makes me wonder how big the full game will actually end up being.
