If a game has a problem, it's better to be one of lack of content than lack of polish.  That problem is pretty easy to fix over time.

A fully priced $60 title should not have this issue

Obviously, yes, but if I were the dev and I had to choose which of those two problems to make my game have, I would choose lack of content because you can add content over time fairly easily.

Playing crackdown 1 on BC, took me a while to get going but it's a fun title, went 9 years between achievements in this game, longest time difference for me

Agreed, but it doesn't always work out that way people will just drop it and move on, not many games retain players when they launch with a lack of content I can think of Siege

I did a search for "hitman" and didn't get any results, so apologies if it's already been mentioned.

 

Hitman Spring Pack is free right now, for a limited time.  It gives free access to Episode 2 of the latest Hitman game.  Back in December, there was a Hitman Holiday Pack which gave free access to Episode 1.

 

If this pattern continues, the entire game will be free eventually.  Lol.

My point was the it's getting bashed by those who want all games to look exactly the same and demand every triple A (read that in Jim Sterling's voice) game to be "linear, grim, dark and gritty" because otherwise, it won't sale or be liked even. 
 


Nice strawman. Not one single person insinuated anything of this sort. Sunset Overdrive is one of my favorite titles this gen and I even 100%d it. It's the polar opposite of dark and grim. Pointing out that SoT I'd boring as Fuck doesn't mean we all expected it to be a "linear grim experience" or whatever gobbledygook.

A really early alpha from last year was boring. Doesn't look like much has changed. I'll try it for free though, praise be to Game Pass.

I can’t even figure out how to get a weapon in SoT. Played for like an hour and never learned anything about what to do or how to do it. No thanks. I’m done.

It's like every shooter. Press Y.

 

If it wasn't for playing the betas and looking up info then, I wouldn't know how to do treasure quests.

I thought sunset overdrive would be shit, then I started playing it and was blown away by how fun it is. Insane amount of content in it too.

Curious, but does anyone still play Destiny 2? I Totally forgot about that game until today and never hear any news of it and for a game that is trying to become one of those long term games through updates and events, it sure seems to have fallen off the radar especially after so many people bought it.

I didn't play enough of the alpha to see it, but how does matchmaking work in sea of thieves? Google only brings up older forum posts and not post launch info.  Can I choose in the menu to be matched with a group to man a larger ship or is it just "we're tossing you in this world GTA:O style with 20 other people in it, have fun"? I'd use my free trial for gamepass for sea of thieves potentially before far cry 5 but don't really want to if I'll be playing alone.

 

Speaking of Far Cry 5, I like the idea of the live action shorts ubi has been doing for recent games. I watched the FC5 one last night and have seen the division one but not ghost recon. They're not amazing but it's an interesting way to be introduced to the plot other than a barrage of trailers.

 

EDIT:

I sold my physical copy a month or so ago. I played them solo and can only grind non raid stuff for so long by myself. I also knew better than to buy any DLC after spending like $120+ on the first game that eventually dropped to $30 with all that content. It may have been because I spent so much on it, but I played the first one a lot more than the second. The only thing that kept me going back to the second one was Iron Banner for the cool armor.

Thanks for the heads up on this! I hope you’re right that the whole game ends up free over time.

I play. There are several other CAGs that play. It's due for a season 3 update. I've completed most of the story content. Other tasks can be a repetitive grind for upgraded gear. Recently they've used a knock out system to avoid excessive repeats for gear drops. Haven't dropped a dime on microtransactions or in game currency. I know not everyone was pleased with the game but overall I've been pretty happy.

You can choose whether to be matched with a crew on a larger ship, a smaller ship, or go solo with the smaller ship. There are at least a few other people on the same server as you whenever you login, but they're just out doing whatever they're doing.

I still play pretty regularly. This week is the last Faction Rally for Season 2, so I'm thinking the Faction armor and their ornaments might not be obtainable after this week.
 

Here is the CAG thread about the game if you have any interest in the reading.  It's slowed down quite a bit in the last few months.

 

Bungie has been making QoL changes to the game and we are due for another one at the next reset.  The changes they have been making are definitely making things better, but I'm afraid for a good chunk of folks the ship has sailed or Bungie will need to make a lot more changes.

 

Here is the roadmap for the biggest changes Bungie plans on making to the game:

And here I was worried to sound disrespectful after the "God of War this, God of War that", "SoT bombed", "the game's for streamers" and all that malarkey. Wonder if it's going to be the same once State of Decay 2 comes out?

 

Again, I'll give SoT a shot probably tomorrow and by the weekend (if not earlier) should make up my mind about it. Five of my friends played it last night and they had a blast, at least last night.

SoT is MUCH better in a group. I hooked up with a guy that I’ve played Fortnite with and it was a ton of fun.

Haven’t tried it yet but apparently an update last week got Redout up to 60FPS at 4K on Xbox One X. It’s a great game but ran like shit on X. Hope this now runs as good as they say it does.

I need to hook up with some CAGers that are playing this when I get a chance. Last night I got put in the brig immediately by some group of idiots.

I know this has been discussed before but I picked up the UE of Fallout New Vegas and thought I should install with disc 1 and play with disc 2. but you only want to use disk 2, had to delete the disk 1 install and only use disk 2 to get the DLC to show up

Interesting Fortnite comparison between the iPhone X and Xbox One X from DF:

https://www.eurogame...x-vs-xbox-one-x

Obviously not the same visual fidelity and only 30 FPS vs 60 FPS. But overall sounds like the mobile port holds up pretty well.

I started Sea of Thieves. Ate a banana. Opened my map. Couldn't figure out where to go or where my crew were and got bored of walking in circles around the starting island trying to figure out wtf to do. Two of my teammates were making "HURRRRRRR" noises in their mics with what sounded like their mics in their mouths. Muted them, but then remembered this is supposed to be a fun coop game with communication, so I did the only thing I could do. Walked into the water and slowly drowned myself, and uninstalled.

 

It's sooooooo good.

The "hurrrrr" part had me cracking up.

Whoever said this was a "goof off game" was on point. That's all this is. A "wacky pirate antics" simulator.
