They made another new yakuza game?   hawaii is certainly an interesting setting.

He means Yakuza Kawaii.

CAG Award of the Week winner!  :D/

And now there's a TSOT/TFBW Steam bundle for an extra 10% off. I almost bought TFBW yesterday. Glad I didn't, so now I can almost buy the bundle.

Almost got TFBW during last week's sale. Glad I didn't, so I can probably almost get it for half the price now this week.

This "Humble Choice" revamp and the massive price hike is either a great idea to reinvigorate the site and attract far better titles to the bundles, or it's a desperate move to bring in the cash that IGN isn't seeing, and marks the beginning of the end.

Hamble is probably saving Doom 2016 a loot chest for Elder Scrolls Blades (that you still have to wait 72 hours to open unless you buy an additional key to open it) for the much anticipated, inevitable Humble Bethesda Bundle.

Actually fixed it for you.

Nothing caught my eye. Any recommendations?

It's almost as if the last 2 episodes were written by a very bad GOT fan-faction writer.

The only thing that makes it "almost as if" as opposed to "literally that" is that you didn't pluralize "writers". The next two episodes are also written by Dan and Dave, expect them to similarly suck.

On Thursday, an announcement for a new Ghost Recon game looks like it's incoming:

So...Wildlands 2 maybe?

Mobile port.

Wow, unlocks for last month were abysmal. And this month the headliner is a dead battle royale game that should be going F2P at any moment. Seriously, if you want a BR fix why would you play Blops over Apex? Pausing yet another month. As long as the unlocks for this month are as garbage as last month, I won't regret it.

Unfortunately I don't think the first Overcooked supports online co-op.  I think it's local only.

Well that really sucks.

Epic still doesn't have even close to 88% of the amount of features (i.e. Big Picture Mode, Controller Support, Achievements, Shopping Cart, Cloud Save, User Reviews, Forums, etc) that Steam has.

Also calling AC a hack and slash is a giant question mark from me. The series started out with a heavy stealth focus. 

Assassin's Creed is not Metal Gear Solid stealth, it's Tenchu stealth, i.e. hack-and-slash stealth (not to compare AC, which is garbage, to MGS or Tenchu, which are great). AC's "stealth" is: sneak around until you get caught, then do boring combat. Or, once you can't stand how boring the combat is, run away from the enemies and hide to avoid the punishment of having to play the game's boring combat.

GTAV is on PC because of GTAO. Red Dead Redemption is a labor of love, but Rockstar also has self-esteem. They like getting paid for the work they put in. PC players don't buy good games at retail prices, they just buy shit buckets of shark cards and microtransactions out the ass.

 

It makes less than zero sense for Rockstar, or anyone else interested in putting down real development money to make good single-player narrative games, to ever release any major narrative title on PC.

 

They should only release easy pushover jobs, anything easy that can turn a profit, or anything they can put tons of microtransactions into. That's all PC gamers spend money on. Well, that and bundles full of steam codes 90% of which they'll never play.

Twitch Prime games this month are breathtakingly bad.

Game streaming seems way in the future to me. People still have demand to play demanding, response-sensitive games. There's no indication anything in the future is going to dramatically improve network latency beyond where it is right now: despite many game streaming services being available, they are all completely unplayable. 

 

When it comes to streaming, video streaming is fine: latency is not an issue there. But gaming just doesn't work. Therefore, the future of gaming is watching other people play games on stream. You can get a top-of-the-line experience with the newest retail-price games running on the newest, most expensive and powerful gaming rigs, alongside an audience of thousands, without any of the frustration of playing the games yourself.
