    I wouldn't call Insomniac or Sucker Punch "mid-sized," unless the definition has gotten truly wacky lately.

    He said "a bit" which implies it won't be studios owned by or who heavily work with Sony. It sounds like something more akin to Ninja Theory.

    Klobrille also said no on Insomniac, directly.

    Because, if so, oh well.

    Ashen sounds like it's coming out on Friday. I imagine the Winter of Arcade thing from the Game Awards will be have those announcements, as well as Outer Wilds. At least I hope Outer Wilds.

    I really want to play Outer Wilds.

    Is outer wilds that game that was given out for free? I think I had that game preordered even though I never bought it.

    A launch trailer for Ashen just hit Xbox's Youtube page and disappeared into the wind.

    It ended with "Available Now" so I guess whenever they air it during the TGAs.

    I wasn't using my Game Pass enough, so a few days ago I cancelled it. I'd only had it for a couple of months, but I got surprise gifted Forza Horizon 4 at launch and then a few weeks later RDR2 came out which has been sucking up loads of game time, plus I already have most of what I'd have been interested in on it, you know how it goes. Losing access to Plunkbat is all that would have stung a bit (not that I play it much on Xbox, and I've got it elsewhere anyway), that and I haven't started Super Lucky's Tale yet and I do want to try that.

    Microsoft clearly weren't going to let that stand as they offered me 50% off the six month plan instead. Twenty-four quid until the middle of June? Bastards got me hook, line and sinker with that. :lol: That covers the Crackdown 3 launch too, so sure, I'm in at that price. It'd be silly not to...

    I saw some streams, but yeah it was a game that came out. I mean just cause 4 came out this week too.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    it got a bare minimal marketing push. the weirdest thing was them doing a series of ASMR videos on the official Youtube channel. don't think anyone suspected Darksiders to be the first franchise to actively go after that market.

    I read reviews for Darksiders 3 at IGN, Polygon, Kotaku, etc. It seems you fell asleep at the wheel here.

  • Local H JayLocal H Jay Registered User regular
    I saw a lot of Darksiders ads on YouTube around the release, didn't hear much either way on it's quality though

    Hmm, the only article on kotaku I can find is a first impressoins that says it's a "mess". Two on polygon... one about Darksiders 3 and one about how the sequels to Darksiders let the original down. On IGN there's videos but I can't say I care about videos so I guess the aggegator rightfully aggregated anything relating to the game out of my sight.

    DF looks at Just Cause 4.



    The big takeaway: well, it runs better than Just Cause 3 did.

    was there nothing about Metal Wolf Chaos with the game awards last night?

    I've been hoping for that to drop for the past month and we only have three weeks left in the year to fulfill "Coming in 2018"

    It's weird and probably fitting that now that Capy seems to actually be releasing Below I'm not even really keen on buying Below.

    It can only disappoint me.

    Despite owning an XB1X, I still haven't picked up Red Dead Redemption. I'm suspicious it'll end up being like GTAV (at best a middling distraction, outside of time spent in multiplayer that left me dissatisfied) when there are a lot of other games I really want to finish--Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Nier: Automata, Ace Combat 7 next month, etc.

    On the other hand, RDR2 is pretty clearly a masterpiece. And I have the best way to (currently) play it (though if GTA Online on PC is any indication, that might remain the case).

    Dilemma.

    Yeah, I've actually heard...rather uncomplimentary things about that. Someone, I imagine DF, made the comparison with Assassin's Creed: Origins which actually has a masterful implementation of HDR. And this actually matters to me, now that I have a Samsung Q6F.

    Just goes to show you: HDR's good when it's done right. Otherwise it's just, well, bad.

    That Kotaku one you saw was the review.
