I think some of our folks from here are as well informed as JaseC 😛 They just don't see the point in "game X is going to be ported soon" teasing anymore, it shouldn't be that surprising at this point. No point in going back and forth around this topic anymore without more specific details, like technical details or when it's going to happen. Believe me, people who are working on this stuff are want to reveal it as soon as possible, but that's not how this industry works, so just relax and wait for a few more weeks.
No one knows shit.

You want to know why?
Because I keep asking for a subtle hint that Splatterhouse (2010) will indeed be released on PC, and no one came forward. 😛

Who cares about all this Sony crap?
Give me my Splatterhouse!

Best Splatterhouse is the original for NES! Think it was my first import game and loved it so much.
Original on the NES?
What??? 😱

The original Splatterhouse was actually an arcade game (later ported to consoles like the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16).

The NES game is a spin-off (that, as far as I recall, was never translated to English).

The 2010 game actually has unlockable ports of the three "official" games in the series (the NES spin-off isn't included).

Wise words. Besides, there's plenty to play!

Ok, the first one I played at least haha. Yeah ok I was wrong about that, but still, love the NES spin off version!

I still don't understand the dumb delay in release outside NA, you want to drive as much traffic as possible to your game on day 1 and staggering that traffic seems counterproductive
Don't even think about it, it took them around 5 hours to check all the boxes of the steam devs panel xd

Nice price there Platinum Games. Greedy little bitches. Making sure i never buy any of your games in the future.

Up to this point I think that they have only developed games that eventually make their way to PC, but I'm guessing the change of publishing is something that they were not that well informed on?

Seeing how a lower price in some places would help it sell and also having it available world wide at the same time as well.

This makes me cautious of what other questionable things they might do when they self publish some of their newer IP stuff that they are working on.

Or will we get a Shenmue 3 on EGS sort of a thing? I still can't remember all of the details but I would imagine that was part Deep Silver involvement and also Ysnet not being familiar with the whole PC state of things. Did they ever make those one physical copies of the game after all?

I sent them an email and a few tweets, looks like an error as the community and the assets are still in place, also it got removed at 1am local time for the devs.

oh shit, so it's not coming to steam at all?
It is, in fact they re-confirmed such release April's last week.




About Sinking City something happened, not sure what exactly and the devs are still releasing their things on Steam as seen with their last teaser. so please wait until more details.

Good developers don't necessarily make good businessmen.

Yooo, been digging into the router from my ISP and if I plug in an external drive to it then it works like a NAS! And as a server for a bunch of stuff AND even has a thing to block ads, holy shit thats awesome.

I'm using Free for those in France that didn't know about the ad blocking.

Looks like Saints Row 3 got one hell of a remaster. Interesting that they put this much effort into it.

As an entitled toxic PC gamer I expected to get it for free, ngl, but looking at this, gotta wonder why the effort? Seems like a lot of work.

I'm honestly surprised at the very positive reviews and sales for monster train. Every other roguelike/deckbuilder after Slay the spire that was published always flopped. Exception for Neoverse I guess.

There was a beta. I had a key to play during a weekend or so, so I guess they managed to build a small and vocal community.

Didn't One Step From Eden do great? I saw it often on New and Popular plus it has quite a lot of reviews.

I was surprised by just how many of the reviews had large playtimes. I picked it up, because I figure if people are getting over 100 hours in it and still feeling good, it must have at least some of the depth that made StS so good.

I think so, but Eden's also pretty far removed from StS. It's more of an action game, and a fast-paced one at that. I want to say Ratropolis seemed to be doing well too, but that's also a real-time affair. It's gotta be hard to stand up against StS with another turn-based game, because Spire's design is so deep and elegant.

Have they mentioned if Artifact 2.0 will be f2p or if it will remain p2p?

If that was already repetitive for you just wait until you get to The Library
I remember back in the day when I played the original Halo: Combat Evolved on PC.
That ominous feeling before you encounter the Flood the first time.
When they finally literally "flood" towards you in the corridor and you don't know what their deal is, so all you can do is fire your gun in panic.

That was a powerful moment. (at least in my memory... Rose-tinted glasses and all that...)

Monster Train seems pretty good, but I'm always a bit worried that it will be overly repetitive like Slay the Spire: always the same early game, limited monster pool forcing you in the same battles in the same level.
Seems like you can change your deck more easily, but does it have enough variety?

One step from Eden was kind of amazing, but one of the few times where I just could not keep up.
The game is just too fast, too many ennemies, too many "cards" to remember. The late game is sensory overload 101.
