FF6 has been one of my top 5 GOAT since I played it on the SNES in the 90s and they still haven't ported it in a version I would be willing to pay for. It's unbelievable how bad they are at this.

It looks fake to me, partially due to the fact that they offer to pay for the work.

If this is their Twitter account, I would say it is fake.


Maybe ask SUR@microsoft.com (found below) if the offer is legit. Or reply to the email (msgur@microsoft.com) to see if they can receive emails.

I have not gotten a reply yet from the SUR adress, but the supposed MSGUR one has replied



If it is a scam, it sure would be quite the elaborate one, however, i feel inclinded to mail Inxile aswell.

If they really received your email, then I guess they truly have an inbox at Microsoft. :stupefy:

I have trouble believing that they offer $300 in digital gift card. If true, you will be the king of the Windows Store! :evilblob:

Just make sure not to send them a copy of your ID card, etc. :smart-thinking-blob:

12 and 18 bucks for decades-old games. I can get modern indie games that bury them story, systems, graphics and replayability-wise.

Square and greed, name a more iconic duo.
Square and shit pc ports?
Square and complete ignorance towards the pc market?


edit:
those screenshots look atrocious... what's the point of having 2d pixelated sprites when the dialogue boxes and UI look like that???
Is it that hard to just port a S/NES rom and run it with an integrated emulator? the original games have a classic look that never got outdated, why are they reinventing the wheel???

I have done the survey now, and it did not phish for any questionable information.
Only basic stuff like name, age, etc and of course videogame related stuff.

Now release Persona 3 for 20$ you cowards.
Persona 3 FES you mean. Not essential, maybe detrimental for the story to some people, but let's get cray cray and ask for the full menu.

Oh my fucking god, the Steam marketplace is unbearable right now. Everything is so fucking slooooooow. Must be getting some heavy traffic because both listing and delisting takes forever to process and sometimes straight up fails because "You cannot sell any items until your previous action completes" uuuuuggggghhhhh I just want my last few pennies damn it

I've had Uboat on my Wishlist forever, but I haven't taken the plunge yet.


Barotrauma seems really popular too (Overwhelmingly Positive), but I'm not sure if you can solo it. That's the only thing holding me back.
I'm here to tell you that unfortunately at the moment it's basically impossible to play this in an enjoyable way solo (You can play it online with other people but even with randoms it's painful)

I did a free weekend of it awhile ago with buddies and it was kind of hilarious fun in a weird way, I was the captain while one of my friends was the engineer and another was the gunner guy and we went around basically having no idea what we were doing but we still had fun

It's still updating quite a bit so maybe they'll make the Single player stuff better (I ended up getting copies, I'm still looking for another for one of my other buddies since it used to be a humble key but they're hard to find)

Maybe keep an eye out for another Free weekend

Perfect for my deck
This is great, it works with my 8bitdo xbox mode and my xbox series controller
wish there was something like this for the dualsense on PC

I think DS4 windows has it, or used to?

I've had fibre optic broadband cabled into my house today. What a goddamn fiasco that was.

It took five engineers to climb up a pole and run two cables into my flat. And they didn't even finish the job today - they'll be back tomorrow to switch it on. Even worse, due to where the telegraph pole is, it needs to be installed in my office rather than where my current router is, so I basically have to re network my entire flat.

I'm going to have a fun weekend.

Looking at the data coming from that IndieDev rant against Sony, Steam is pretty much the central pillar holding the Indie market afloat, if some day Valve decides to curate the store and lock down Steam again, most Indie Devs gonna experience a rude awakening.

there's a very good 'how many engineers to complete one task' joke in here.

Sucks that they couldnt finish in time today but be assured the wait is worth it.

Doing my usual trawl through some gaming sites and come across this on an RPS article.


Apparently you form a dungeon for your knight to explore using a Tetris like system.

currently available on Itch and the dev is hoping to release it on Steam by the end of Summer.

Itch Demo

looks cool and I will have to give it a go over the weekend.

Reminder that curation-era Valve is the main reason visual novels had no place in the west outside of niche handheld games.

Industry-wide curation can eat my shorts.

I mean...

Man, those covers for the pixel remasters look really good but I have no idea why they felt the need to put those sprites on there. It really ruins the aesthetic. It's like they can't do anything without fucking it up in some way. Good thing Steam lets you set custom covers...

Also that Type-0 right in the middle because who needs logical sorting lmao. :upside-down-face:
