I game and have been gaming mostly on PC for the last 20 + years.

I currently own a Switch and a Playstation Pro.

The Switch is broken. I played most of the early releases. I am sending it for repairs but have no plans to purchase any more games for it. The hardware is flimsy and the games just don't go down in price.

The PS4 I originally bought for PSVR, which I still play occasionally. It was a big hit with the family. At this point, I am more focused on the exclusives, and am currently focusing my energies on Persona 5.

I will eventually get rid of both consoles, but I have to say that Sony is really killing it this generation.

It seems that now with Activision out of the way, Bungie is free to put out Destiny the way it had always envisioned, and it's terrific.

How so?

I've played about 25 hours of Shadowkeep in the last week and I see little to no difference, aside from the fact I was locked out of the game for the first 8 hours of release.

I love showing the proverbial finger to big corporations as much as anybody, but unless you are able to point to something specific and tangible, I don't believe we'll feel a difference this early in the split.

The 20 bucks armour ornament on offer at Eververse certainly didn't scream independence to me.

LOL dang, that was unexpected. I was looking forward to this November but hey, delay is always a good thing in my books to make sure the game is perfect as it can get.

As long as it doesn't get cancelled, I don't mind waiting.

The game looks really good.

By the time I write this Code Vein already a proven disappointment while Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a crap, be it with microtransactions or not. I'm afraid we might got more craps after this such as..

1. Death Stranding: No important information released to the public yet and the game itself looks like polished version of Metal Gear Survive. Expect tons of microtransactions.

2. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order: A cheaper version of God of War 3. Looks and plays unimpressive at best.

3. Marvel's Avengers(Square-Enix): A generic beat-em up with gimmicky QTEs. Having Kamala Khan as central character already turned people off.

4. Final Fantasy VII Remake: Eliminating the turn-based battle of the classic for the favor of real-time hack-and-slash one. Episodic content and likely to be milked for DLCs.

Aside from Code Vein, the other 4 games mentioned are developed by teams that have really good track records.

I'm optimistic about Death Stranding, as all Kojima games I have played so far I have greatly enjoyed.

Fallen Order is a Respawn gig, so I'm hoping for the same level of fluidity as the Titanfall games. Not a huge Star Wars fan, but it's looking good.

Avengers I'm not too hot about, but it's Crystal Dynamics, so we'll see.

Aside from the episodic nature of the FF7 remake, everything shown so far makes the game look nice and polished.

If these are the potential disappointment for the next year, it seems like end 2019 / early 2020 will be a great period for gaming in general.

I think you're being nostalgic.

Inevitably, but that does not mean that the 2000's did not produce some of the best games to date.

Especially considering the rise of microtransactions. Games back then shipped as full experiences, with Expansion sets releasing later, usually adding sizeable amount of new contents and ways to play.

Today's games are incomplete and improperly tested. You are usually better faring by buying the game at a significant discount, months later, as the game will have received multiple fix and updates, with most of the available extra content offered as part of the discounted package.

I still do enjoy today's new releases, but i believe there are little arguments against the fact that games have been better, both in term of quality and value, in the past.

Oh man, last time i heard about rips must have been 10+ years ago.

I haven't pirated a game in such a long time.

In all honesty, while games are growing in size, availability of bigger drives is growing and pricing per GB is dropping.

Unless you have to install your whole game library, which i can't really see why you would, storage should generally not be a problem.

The whole point of rips was to shave on download times, anyway. Not an issue for most people nowadays.

Ran a few matches yesterday in the evening, it's the original modern warfare with better animation and better shadings.

It's worth mentionning i play remastered on the side, every once in a while.

To be fair, it's really only just a beta, but it emulates the original game down to the jingle when you level up.

I guess if you want more Call of Duty, this is good.

Picked up the Castlevania Requiem compilation on PS4. It was on sale. To be able to play Symphony of the Night again feels good, and the PC Engine version of Rondo of Blood is surprisingly good.

I also picked up the newest Destiny 2 Expansion. Looking forward to that.

Destiny 2 is about to go free and cross platform in a few weeks.

You couldn't pay me to Destiny 2. You certainly won't get me to play it for free.

And what do you mean cross-platform? You mean cross-play? I must admit that would be cool of them.

The game is good. It's biggest flaws were the lack of content. This is not an issue anymore.

If you like loot shooters, it is worth at least a try, especially if you play on PC.

If your beef with the game is hate for the sake of hating, disregard anything i just wrote.

I actually still have it installed, believe it or not. I like to give games a chance, especially online games. I check in on Destiny 2 from time to time.

I didn't hate it for the sake of it. I wouldn't even say I hated it. Objectively, it is a quality product; it has good production values and was given a large budget at least. I just found it boring as hell.

I also find Borderlands boring, too, so it might just bee a loot-n-shoot thing haha. Actually not really it's more of a bullet-sponge thing.

I think that's why I like The Division 2 because if you're smart and tactical it doesn't feel that way so much except on maybe some tough bosses; headshots are generally kills, if you go for weakpoints their armor/abilities disappear, and once you get to their health bar it doesn't take long to kill them.

That seems like a fair opinion.

Thanks for sharing :D
