"Derrick why do you hate co-op so much it's harmless and more options"- people saying this to me for more years than I can remember



I always say because co-op entirely shifts the design of a game to fit it in, unless it's completely tossed in co-op for a marketing bullet point and they just don't care about it working or not. It's almost always for the worst as well since people messing around in co-op don't normally pay attention to details and in depth gameplay systems they just want to mess around with a friend. Great for them but bad for someone like me who gets to play through a poorly designed game for no added benefit.

A separate multiplayer mode is ALWAYS better than a game having co-op merely for the fact that it is separated and cut off from harming the campaign.
Kind of disappointing. I was hoping to get a very good singleplayer time out of Gothams since Suicide Squad will for sure not be that type of game :negative-blob:

This past year seems so long and so busy I'm having a hard time even figuring out what I did during it. Any games that I played seemed like a blur, and it was mostly short stuff or older stuff.

Everyone's talking about phones right when I upgraded to an iPhone XR from a 6s that between the 16GB storage, 2 hour battery and cracked screen, finally pushed me to upgrade. Here's to 4-5 years with the XR!
I've had a XR for a year and a half and it rocks.

Even if Alyx is going non-VR...I would still want to play it in VR first

Which means I would be playing it by 2022/2023 once I've upgraded and got a good affordable VR headset

I think Us was the first Japanese Game dev to do EGS exclusive stuff. I would not be surprised if some of that was just them not being familair with it and the difference with Steam/Deep Silver being involved.


The newest indie dev is the dev behind Monkey Barrel. It was just announced it would be getting a PC port on EGS. The game has cross play and maybe that's why they choose to do that. They are self publishing the game. Also it looks like prior to this they have never releases a game on PC before. A vast majority of their stuff is Nintendo contracted games (them making games on behalf of Nintendo including those "Yoshi and Kirby Wool and yarn games) and stuff on iOS, android and Facebook browser games.

So they make have reached out to them or something and took a deal.



I hope that other Japanese devs don't do the same thing. Some of the larger ones likely will not go exclusive but smaller devs might.
Definitely. Just as EGS finally got Among Us... unluckeh.
Did something happen?

Good-Feel is made up of former Nintendo employees who wanted to break free from the Corporate culture. And yup it seems very likely they were convinced to join EGS.

I'm worried they might not release on Steam because they don't have enough knowledge.



Rust new flavour of the month?

Lot of big streamers (xQc, Pokimane) one day decided to play RUST on private server. It blew up and others followed suit.
It caught eye of lot of Spanish/LATAM people it seems and are getting in on the craze right now too.

Remember, anything that hits the following regions will get a BOOST :-
  1. General American/UK crowd
  2. LATAM/Spanish speaking crowd
  3. Korean/Chinese crowd

No offense mate but how could one have 'enough knowledge' to release on EGS, but not enough knowledge to know about Steam the most prominent PC game platform of the past 10+ years? Because if indie devs from China and Japan, at least, have been releasing their games onto Steam for the better part of the past 3 or so years, just about any dev from East Asia would have enough knowledge to release on steam as well.

Hey hey, I might be very wrong here (I hope I am).

But studios close to Nintendo are near clueless about anything outside their domain. Few like Game Freak still released their games on Steam.
If you notice, large majority of Japanese games are released by publishers like Playism, Deciga, NISA, Xseed, Arcsys who have a better idea about the PC space. This is because the developers do not have any idea about the market.
Since they are self publishing, I'm guessing they didn't had someone to tell them about EGS and Steam.

BUT fingers crossed, it does arrive on Steam and my guess is completely wrong.

There will be a Power Stone remake and a Soul Reaver reboot yet SE cannot port the mobile versions of FF Tactics and Valkyrie Profile to PC. WTF.
Every single mainline Final Fantasy game is on PC

Except 1+2

Who have mobile ports

Even though Square ported basically every other mobile port

Square Enix

halife life alyx non vr is in works, half life 3 is in works and is currently a vr and non vr game where theres a vr and non vr campaign,
They have enough people for 3 projects? Didn't Alyx alone require "every" Valve game dev?
