There's JoJo All-Star Battle on PS3, and then there's JoJo Eyes of Heaven on PS3 and PS4.

Jump Force is an upcoming fighting game with various Shonen Jump characters such as Dai, Kenshiro, Jotaro, Dio, Naruto, etc.

The GIF is from the full 2nd intro

Tizoc , what are your thoughts on Jump Force?

I haven't been following the game closely.
How is it shaping to be, in terms of content?

The idea of a multi-license fighting game is interesting (I have Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars for the Nintendo DS), even though I'm unfamiliar with most of them. :p
But, I've seen some videos from a recent beta that didn't look very appealing.

Eh I'm not expecting much out of it TBH.
It'd be nice to have for casual mashing at least, esp. with it having many of the big names in Shoenen.

Why does it seem like only console players care about Half Life? Maybe I'm being narrow minded myself, but as we're in 2019 I'm of the mindset that nobody, in the PC gaming scene at least, cares about Half Life anymore.
Half Life 3 would be the equivalent of releasing Megaman 11 or 12.

HOOOOOLY SHIEEET! Divinity Original Sin 2 came out on Mac just now! Saw I had one extra game in my Mac list on steam and sure enough there it was! How the hell am I going to find the opportunity to play it!?

I care.:( I can honestly say that HL3 is my most wanted game even still. Sure it is all jumbled nostalgia and remember the hype and thinking it would be the same again. Playing HL1 and loving it so damn much and then seeing that HL2 E3 presentation is one of my fondest gaming memories.

I’ve been dabbling in Tower of Time (thanks Queen!) and I’m really liking it so far! Took a couple fights to get into the battle system, but I can see it getting really crazy with more party members later on. Graphics are pretty great too
I really have to play it one of these days.

I bought it in late 2017, during Early Access, at the same time as Book of Demons.
I tried Book of Demons first, and ended up forgetting about Tower of Time a bit.

I honestly dont care if Valve makes another game ever again...they are just another dev in that regard.
Steam is way more important...
but... Portal 3 would be great, Id like that way more than HL3 :D
Well, ideally Portal 3 and HL3 would be the same game with a campaign with 2 protagonists. And yeah, I too am one of the people who still care. Half Life, Quake (1!)
and Doom are my most beloved games and it's true, EP2 released a long time ago but honesty, it feels like I played it for the first time yesterday and the ending with
the cliffhanger is fresh in my mind.

PC gamers care, at least some of them. But I think more of them (proportionally) have moved on, whereas console gamers are more heavily made up of people with nostalgia for some era of PC gaming they feel has vanished. When in truth, many PC gamers have moved on because the landscape is better than ever before.

Even if I say "I don't care about HL3 anymore" that's just because I dont want to suffer. If Valve gives any hints of hope, I will be there drooling and throwing money at the screen.

And now... to decide if I buy Ace Combat 7 just for the campaign or not.... ideally I would wait but these past few days of discussions have me reminiscing of a simpler time of just playing games (or adding them to the backlog).

Just got a coupon for 20% off Metal Slug XX, but when I click applicable games, the search comes up empty.
Same here.

I didn't know Metal Slug XX was going to be released on Steam.

For those unfamiliar, this is a revised version of Metal Slug 7, that was released a few years ago on several platforms.
I played it on an Xbox 360.

After a first episode which mainly focused on the young sibling protagonists Amicia and Hugo, Episode 2: Dark Ages takes us to the Middle Ages. Discover the process that went into forging a grounded, realistic world, set in one of the darkest hours of human history. The creative team at Asobo explains their inspiration for the world they built - from visiting real French villages whose layouts, streets and buildings find their roots in medieval times, to taking cues from famous painters to craft the game’s naturalistic lighting. The carefully crafted world serves to enrich the story and the characters, and contributes to creating this moving, emotional experience.

I'm as mad as anyone at Epic (and Bethesda, and...) but this sheet is either outdated or just wrong, and it's wrong about a few of the companies. I would also agree that trading cards should be under "Loyalty Program".

Edit: Also, Steam and MS don't have no curation, even Steam has some. Just not the curation people want when they only want applicable games beamed directly into their account :p

Re-Legion wasn't previously in early access, prudis . ;)

---

To repeat a bit of what I said yesterday, with all this talk about the devil Epic Games Store ( :p ), one almost forgets that, for every exclusive that Epic announced, tons of great games are launching on Steam every day.
If anyone wants to lighten up their wallets, here's just a few examples of games that are releasing in the space of 24 hours (and that's not even counting games leaving early access today):

FunktionJCB damn my bad ... i forgot it was just closed beta :-D


and yep so many cool looking stuff releasing and announcing every day
like:

A quiet game of life and loss. One by one, everyone left the once bustling village for the city. Everyone, except Talma. Now approaching the end of her days, she maintains a simple, solitary way of life, surviving, subsisting, tending to her homestead and her goats. Develop your own personal routine as you care for your farm and your animals. Tend to your goats, make cheese with their milk, collect eggs and cook meals, grow vegetables and barter with the travelling merchant who brings increasingly disturbing letters from your family in the city. A follow up to the critically acclaimed Where the Goats Are, The Stillness of the Wind is a quiet rumination on life and loss.
