    @Decoy77: They did not. This is just a desperate attempt to take it. And it will work - they only need ~US$30M more to beat Avatar. Not inflation adjusted of course; taking that into account Gone With...

    I got my spaceship irreversibly stuck on scenery (in that split open planetoid with a man-made structure inside). Spent about 10 minutes trying to get it free and couldn't. Not exactly a good first im...

    Good story focused game let down by frustrating controls

    The basic premise of Observation is certainly original: rather than controlling the protagonist (a female astronaut), you have to help her as a disembodied A.I. (called SAM) by manipulating various sp...

    @Wraith3: Disney disrespected and/or killed every Original Trilogy core character (Lando is next on the chopping block), compounded by completely ignoring established lore (e.g. hyperspace ramming). I...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post E3 2019: Jedi Fallen Order's "Thoughtful" Lightsaber Combat Kind Of Looks Like Sekiro.

    Disney Star Wars basically killed any enthusiasm I would have had for this (which would have been massive before 2015). I never would have thought you could destroy an entire franchise I previously co...

    @joshrmeyer: That will be so good if true, although who knows what the hell this game even is (gameplay/story/mechanics etc)???

  • mdinger posted a message on the post Kojima Shares Death Stranding Teaser [Update: Release Date And Trailer].

    @joshrmeyer: A number of former PS4 "exclusives" are already coming to PC, so there is a reason to hope. e.g. ALL of the Quantic Dreams games, for a start. The Yakuza games are also being ported, as i...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post Rage 2 Review - Wasted Land.

    I'm playing through this right now, and I prefer it over the recent Far Cry games. It's plot is not great, the driving mechanics are awful, the NPCs are boring to listen to... but holy shit the gun p...

    Skyrim without the combat

    Excellent open-world first-person indie game, that takes quests reminiscent of the sort you'd find in the non-combat related side-missions in Bethesda RPG's (e.g. Skyrim) and builds a game around that...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post A Plague Tale: Innocence Review - Of Rats And Children.

    Totally looks like my cup of tea. Been playing through Eastshade at the moment, and this looks like a great game to follow that one up with.

    @openmind23: Seriously, I'm happy to hear someone likes it. It means it wasn't all for nothing.

  • mdinger posted a message on the post Rage 2 Review - Wasted Land.

    @RicanV: Ha ha ha. Yes, Metacritic should just have a binary score system of 0 and 10, since those are the only two scores most people use anyway. That said, the average score still somehow represents...

  • mdinger posted a message on the post Rage 2 Review - Wasted Land.

    Seems pretty clear that many people that read reviews here don't actually want a subjective opinion on a game with a detailed explanation of how he/she reached that conclusion for that individual (i.e...
