RESIDENT EVIL 3

Jill Valentine is one of the last remaining people in Raccoon City to witness the atrocities Umbrella performed. To stop her, Umbrella unleashes their ultimate secret weapon; Nemesis!

Also includes Resident Evil Resistance, a new 1 vs 4 online multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe where four survivors face-off against a sinister Mastermind.



Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories

Thrust into a tragedy that touches countless lives, you must now make the decisions that will determine who lives and who dies in the chaos stemming from a natural disaster. What will you do in the aftermath of calamity?

When a massive earthquake strikes the city you’re visiting, you find yourself at the epicenter of a chaotic and catastrophic crisis. It’s up to you to rise above the calamity, gather your thoughts and your fellow survivors, and outlast the disaster. Aftershocks, fires, collapsing buildings and debris, and unstable ground are but a few of the threats you’ll face in these nightmarish circumstances. What will you do when every passing second and every snap decision could spell the difference between life and death?

Your World in Chaos - In a city on the brink of collapsing, you’ll need to make split-second decisions that will impact your safety as well as that of others.

Everybody's Got a Story - Meet your fellow survivors in a Japanese-inspired city devastated by a powerful earthquake, and see how the human spirit bends...and sometimes breaks.

Danger at Every Corner - Navigate a multitude of crises—from collapsing buildings to raging fires—in a city aplomb with peril.



Fallout 76

In Fallout 76: Wastelanders, people are now coming back to West Virginia. Two vying factions are struggling to gain the upper hand as the secrets of West Virginia are revealed. The Settlers have come to find a new home, and the Raiders have come to exploit them. Embark on a new quest for the Overseer, forge alliances with competing factions, and uncover the truth of what's hidden in the mountains.



Cloudpunk

Your name is Rania. This is your first night working for Cloudpunk, the semi-legal delivery company based in the sprawling city of Nivalis. You go everywhere, from the Marrow below to the spires that pierce the grey clouds high above before scraping the edge of the troposphere. No delivery job is too dangerous, and no one is faster than a Cloudpunk driver.

In this story-based exploration game, you will meet a diverse range of characters including androids, AI and unscrupulous humans at every level of society. Everyone has a story, and in the course of one night in Nivalis, everything will change.



Trials of Mana

Trials of Mana is the 3D remake of the hit classic RPG released in 1995 as Seiken Densetsu 3.

This daring tale of overcoming the tests of fate has been given new life! Experience the beloved adventure fully modernized with graphic improvements, character voiceover support, a remastered soundtrack and a new episode which you can experience after the ending, in addition to an ability system and a new class that reconstructs the character levelling system plus more active battles!

This overlapping story of interwoven destinies changes depending on who you choose as your main character and companions! Will these young adventurers be able to use the power of mana to save the world from the brink of destruction?

When the world was shrouded in darkness, the Goddess of Mana drew forth the Sword of Mana to smite the eight Benevodons, monsters of destruction. She sealed the horrors inside the eight Mana Stones, bringing the realm back from the brink. Weakened from rebuilding the world, the Goddess changed herself into a tree and fell into a deep sleep for many years. However, the forces of evil soon sought to free the Benevodons to gain control of the world. They started a terrible war to further their plot and destabilize the kingdoms. Peace was at an end. Mana itself began to disappear from the world and the Mana Tree started to wither...

What are the bets on a company doing a totally tasteless COVID-related April Fool's Joke?
Cause someone's defo doing it.
Allow me to keep what little faith I have in humanity, and hope people have the decency of not doing so.

I mean, even Running With Scissors, who usually try too hard with their juvenile brand of humour, posted this:

Just saw the Satisfactory post in the end of the other thread. Is it just me or does "crossplay" between different stores/launchers/platforms sound really stupid on PC?

I mean, PC should be PC right? Whether you get a game on Steam or GOG should not matter when playing multiplayer... So why is "crossplay" explicitly needed?

Gosh it has felt like there has been no slow down between releases. I am tempted by so many games. Of games that just released or are releasing within a week that I am interested in, just off the top of head, there is Mount and Blade 2, Making Lovers, One Step from Eden, Resident Evil 3, Good Company, One Piece, Biped, Disaster Report 4 and... :astonished-face: This is to say nothing of the games that released throughout the year so far. Wowzah, I cannot keep up.

Beat DOOM Eternal this past weekend. Just the fact that I beat it is a testament to something about the game, but I cannot figure out if I liked it more or less than DOOM 2016. I have mixed feelings though I am glad to have played it. It was just a bit exhausting to play.

That Bannerlord news. I have not played the series but I'm guessing something must have happened for why the game is not out on EGS right now and instead it will be sometime in Spring like someone already mentioned
-------


Oh and will the new Riot FPS game over take CSGO?

In the west no chance, people are to invested in their stuff on csgo to let it go, It will probably be a giant on Asia tho´.
That makes sense, I know that in Asia there was also a Korean version of CS that Nexon was in charge of and there is CSGO with Perfect World.

Is OW also really big in Asia? Since I know that MOBAs and stuff like that are popular there.

So it just seems like a weird match with this new game.

I was writing my reply to your post in last month's thread re: FFVII but work got in the way and the thread was locked before I have the chance to post it. Hence, I'll post it here.

So, I recommend playing FFVII PC Classic (Steam) with The Reunion mod. It's basically a collection of mods designed not only to make the PC release playable in modern PC, but also to fix localisation issue, outstanding bugs present both in the PSX and the PC version and enhancements to the game's difficulty and balance.

1. Beacause — This is the most important mod because as you might know, FF VII has all the hallmark of mid-90s professional localisation. mistranslations, grammar errors, inaccurate lore, etc. The mod is a rework from the ground up, edited from the Japanese script.
2. Menu Enhancement — Menu rework to fix alignment issue and adapting it for scalability with high-resolution screen/monitors
3. Audio Replacement — This is a replacement for FF VII sound module. The original sound effects are re-recorded and encoded in .ogg format
4. Weapon — A difficulty mod. The aim is not to make a "harder" game but to fix the imbalance in the game mechanics. It's still very much a WIP.
5. Model Overhaul — This one is a revamp of the low-poly models found in the original game. They try to keep the intended look and style while improving the model quality.
6. 60 fps battle scene — The PSX version runs at 60fps everywhere while the PC version runs at 30fps. In battle, they clamp this down to 15fps. The mod intends to fix this issue.
7. Soldier quest — This is basically a collectable quest. A total of 99 1/35 soldiers are hidden throughout the world.

OW is not big anywhere anymore.

Valorant is the way it is because of crossfire and games like that. Theres some really goofy cs clones in asia with cartoon characters and what not.

What happened to Crossfire? I know that there is a new one that Remedy is involved with but what happened to the series in general?

Crossfire is one of the biggest games on Asia (hence the world). not the MS one, the original one.
