    Big news for Destiny: https://www.bungie.net/7/en/News/Article/zvaa
    Lance Reddick, before he passed away, was the voice of Commander Zavala, one of the most important and well-liked NPCs in the game. Bungie has decided on a replacement starting in the new expansion next year: Keith David.
    Earlier this year, we lost Lance Reddick, the English language voice actor of Commander Zavala. The passion and professionalism Lance brought to the role over the last decade was unmistakable and loved by all. Lance’s iconic voice led us through the most intense moments in Destiny’s history and his impact on our Guardians, our community, and Bungie as a whole will never be forgotten. 

    Commander Zavala has been central to the story we have been telling since the original Destiny, and we have plans to continue his journey. 

    Keith David, a prolific actor on the stage and in television, film, and games, will assume the English language voice of Zavala in The Final Shape and beyond. Separately, Lance’s existing lines in-game will remain untouched for the upcoming release. 

    On becoming the new Vanguard leader, Keith said, “I am honored to continue the great work of Lance Reddick as Zavala. Lance captured the character's sense of integrity so wonderfully. It is my intention to continue that work.” 

    Bungie is honored to continue the relationship that began with Keith during the days of Halo, and the team is excited for what he brings to the role of the Commander. We will always remain respectful to the role Zavala has played thus far, and look forward to the journey ahead.

    The replacement for loot in OW2 absolutely feels worse in every way than a loot box upon level, it's actually kind of impressive how much they fucked it up.

    You can just buy the thing you want now! Bad news it's like thirty to fifty dollars.

    The side effects of killing loot boxes is you also never get the stuff that, let's be real you would never pay money for, like emotes and voice lines and such.

    Similar deep voiced recognition, but I think of Keith David to normally be a bit more unhinged than Lance Riddick ever comes across.

    Keith David is a great choice and it’s also a good idea to do a VA swap rather than killing the character.

    It's fucked up!

    And now if you don't spend money, instead of getting an occasional loot box that probably doesn't necessarily have the thing you wanted but has something, you just get nothing!

    If you did all your weeklies for like a solid year you might be able to buy a skin

    Putting the new campaign content behind the paywall bit is probably the one thing that would've gotten me to actually pay for anything in OW2, if not for all the Blizzavision.

    Quake 2 is the single most uninspired and blandest game there ever was. As a follow-up to the original, which had a very palpable and distinct style, it might be the worst sequel ever made.

    Seriously, I love Quake so goddamn much, but every Quake since then has been a huuuuge disappointment

    One of my complaints with Quake 2 is that the it's sometimes difficult to find the way forward.

    Apparently Nighdive agrees with me. This new release adds a compass equipment item, that when used creates markers on the floor showing the way forward.

    btw, this is a free update to the game, so if you already owned it you get all the new stuff (split-screen multiplayer, new expansion, the Quake 2 64 content, etc.) for free
    similar to how they did the Quake 1 remaster a year or two ago

    I am legit freaked out, this is insanely creepy!

    Concerned Ape put a lot of not very happy stuff in his happy farm sim game. I was the one who first used the term "genocide route" in reference to this game when I tried to play all the negative quests in SDV.

    Understandably, people were appalled. (And it caused me to burn out on the game and never play it again, so I wouldn't recommend it.)

    did you know that someone who was once young is now slightly older? does that make you feel old

    honestly whenever I see my (formerly) baby nephew at a family meetup I'm like, wait, he can walk and talk and what do you mean he's six years old

    I'm pretty sure it's just a thing where your caveman brain expects things to be exactly how they were the last time you saw them, so when they're different it gets spooked
    e.g. the last time you played Papers, Please was when it was a "new" game, so when you see it again and it's not new then you go "oh no, time is slipping through my fingers"

    meanwhile nobody's particularly surprised about Skyrim being old because it's continually rereleased and in the zeitgeist (time ghost) because of that

    I have a nephew who had graduated college for game design and now does the same job I do (tech support).

    It's very weird.

    Counterpoint: It had a great selection of weapons and one of the best videogame soundtracks of all time. It was also id actually trying to evolve their design rather than Quake's "It's Doom again, but in 3D!" Though I think I prefer Quake II to Quake anyway. Quake was undeniably a more important game, but I think Quake II is more fun to play. Quake I is definitely a more important game on the long run though.

    This remaster is something; the aforementioned compass was added to navigate the world and they even removed the silly thing where the machine gun would kick up (but no other weapon) and the enemies are doing shit they never did in teh original, like attacking while moving or dodging out of the way of attacks. It's wild. I'm definitely looking forward to playing though it all, but they had to drop this on the same day I had a doctors appointment :P

    I love quake 1 and 2 for different reasons and I’m super stoked about this release.

    However I think if they make a new Quake game it should definitely be the kind of medieval/gothic look of quake 1. Quake 2s cybernetic/industrial sci-fi is too similar to doom 2016/eternal and would feel too samey

    Either that or make it a kind of Remnant/timesplitters portal hopping thing with different styles and settings you visit via dimensional portals

    I mean, conceptually, the Strong are fucking terrifying. Maybe not terribly original, but you have this alien race going around processing other organic species and fitting them with their technology in order to form their frontline. These are people that are kept alive for the process as they're turned into an amalgamation of flesh and alien metal. The opposing force is creating Cronenberg monsters from your friends and family who live on a force fed sludge made from humans that don't survive the process. It's necromancy, but more fucked up!
