PlayStation have a big sale on abd I was hoping FF7 would be on it but it wasn't.

Instead I got Days Gone. An open world zombie game. It's not very original for the most part and has loads of open world tropes, but it's raison d'être is having swarms of zombies kind of World War Z style which can lead to some hair raising encounters. So what it lacks in originality it makes up for in fun.

It looks great for sure, I’ve watched a few YouTube vids on it.

The Tetris Effect. I wanted to get this ages ago but just didn't feel like paying 40 quid for Tetris. It finally was on sale so I nebbed it. Probably the definitive version of the game. Great soundtrack and visuals. Would love to play it in VR but no longer have the headset.

What monopolising behaviour exactly?
I mean, I'm not saying Steam is perfect, but afaik they don't do exclusives that are not their own games.
Also Steam's monopoly was already being broken by GOG, EA, UBI and others.
*Edit and Microsofts game pass.

EA, Ubi, and Microsoft all buy exclusives so I don't see why Epic gets singled out. Epic also invest money into games, case in point Phoenix Point who they gave a substantial amount towards production helping them broaden the scope of the game.

I don't get the Epic Games bad guy-ism at all.


Indeed but as with all/most fan(atic)ism rational arguments don't work.

I, for example, dont care about launcher at all. All I want is to start a game. Achievements, friends list and I dunno what Steam has because I dont use it is redundant for me. Now, if Epic gives me free games and at the same time gives developers higher cut on sold games than Steam, what else should I care about? Disingenuous methods? lol Like what?

Oh. Didn't thought of that. It's the kind of games I only play on PC usually. But I might rethink that. How is the interface ?

Fine to me. But I'm used to console even on these type of games.

Recently went through the game:

CONTROL

Neat game. Weird story. Understand it shares a universe with those Alan Wake game that maaaybe I should try.

Unexpected bonus
: they featured and have previously collaborated (in the Alan Wake games, under a different name, in the game's fictional universe) with one of my favorite bands POETS OF THE FALL, whose lyrics are always outta this world.

Also, the actress in it (Courtney Hope) has...excellent facial structure. Her features are kinda like a mix between Cobie Smulders and Jaimie Alexander, which is just...perfect.

...

Almost done with METRO: EXODUS.

:shock: I've only watched as far as I've gotten, but this guy does a mission that took me nearly an hour in under 2 minutes. No glitching or anything.

Shadow Tactics is only 6 quid on Steam at the moment so I picked it up. Now I've a stealth tactic game for home and work. I'm expecting ST to be as good as D3.
