Wuss Adventure mode is out for Amnesia: Rebirth.

Cool that they did this again.
I don't give two shits about horror but love to explore worlds that these guys create.

The update brought a huge influx of players, I wonder how many are new players and how many are replaying again. It also in the top 10 of global sellers.
I bought it at launch, but only played for an hour (I assume another big game distracted me). So I have jumped in for the final cut, have already logged in more than 4 hours. This and Evil Genius 2 have been good games to alternate between.

Too bad that Disco Elysium Final Cut isn't coming out in a great shape. I guess I'll wait for some patches to start playing, especially until they fix the issue with the controller (on PC and consoles). I don't mind stuttering which I probably wouldn't notice anyway, but bad controls will annoy me throughout the game.
Personally I haven't noticed any stuttering, been very smooth so far.

Joe Spangle If that's via GOG then it's because they don't have the data compression and extraction processes like Steam does so their patches are larger but the patch notes do indicate it is a BIG patch this time around for sure so i expected it to be much bigger. Just not 20GB+ big!
I got it on Steam.

Today I had to sign one of the most egregious NDA I've ever seen, some companies are obsessed with leaks and I swear some things don't make any sense :rolleyes:
I remember a few NDAs from a few companies that, oh boy, if you want to jail me already, you can do it xD

It is interesting how Tim Sweeney is silent regarding Sony shutting down PS3/Vita stores, if it was Apple, Google or Valve we would be hearing about it for weeks.
I can think of 250 million reasons why.

6.7GB No Man's Sky update but no patch notes atm.
Probably this new update:

Evil Genius 2 and Isaac received banners in the past two days. Outriders will probably get a banner tomorrow too. It's a banner bonanza!

Can we just get emulator on PC?
An emulator would be very costly to write and maintain. Better solution would be to port games, and there are not many left from the 360 days that would be worth the effort.

Gears 2 / Gears 3 PC should absolutely happen. It's baffling there aren't on PC already with Gears 4/5 being on here as well as the remake of the first.
Microsoft logic.

My first Game of Dorfromantik.
It ain't much, but it is honest work.




Such a wholesome game.
And suddenly it is over :( from 40 cards to zero while you try to finish the big quests :[
Yeah that's around my best score so far too. The game doesn't have sandbox mode yet, so I'm also stuck with weird rivers and stuff like that little train track to nowhere at the bottom of your shot. I keep trying to make rivers that go somewhere, trains that make it to another town, etc. But the game seems to penalize that, because instead of a long range design, you have to prioritize those points to keep the deck stacked up. So sometimes you have to make weird choices just to keep the game alive.

I'm enjoying it though. Even with the oddness that the quests produce, the map still ends up looking nice.
The randomness impedes it, much to often you get tiles that are useless to what you are currently trying to do, making it harder and more frustrating than it has any right to be.
Yeah, I know it's all over once I start getting tiles with track curve and river curve on the same tile. What can I do with that that doesn't look bad?

Had another game this afternoon with 8000 points :>
But yeah, you build for the quests and not for the looks :(
Especially the traintracks are infuriating, and the worst are traintracks with rivers.

I hope the sandbox mode comes in the near future.

So ? Are we excited for Outriders ? I should try the demo, I know. It's maybe telling I don't. Maybe I will. Life. So many choices.

Or The Medium sold like shit.
It had to of done well for what it is. Horror games aren't making a lot of money nowadays outside of Resident Evil or some rare early access game.

MS offer was probably too low for them to care. And for MS its probably cheaper to just moneyhat for gamepass like Blair Witch, Medium etc.

I don't see the appeal. Looks like another boring Shlooter.

People seem excited tho probably because its really quiet for big releases so far this year.

Emulation on PC has to be massively more complex. There are many more parameters to be taken into account.

Really, they should just port and be done with it.
Xbox One sand Xbox Series are running on Windows kernel and use DirectX as far as i know so porting emulator from consoles to PC would be fairly easy for company like Microsoft. But i could be wrong.

Ports probably wouldn't cover the exclusives in the 360 library I'd actually be interested in (e.g. Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Project Sylpheed).

I think getting their emulator to work on PC wouldn't be that difficult. but it could well be that its game compatibility also isn't 100%.

I want some way to stash tiles that I don't need just yet, but would be handy in the future. Like they have that water train station combo, so it looks like they meant to do more with functional rivers and rails. I'd like to stash that train station until I need it instead of just dropping it wherever. I guess I want an easy mode that has a game to it, but also allows for some decent design.
