Huge hugs for all of you there.






The Invincible

You are a highly qualified, sharp-witted astrobiologist named Yasna. Being entangled in a space race, you and your crew end up on the unexplored planet Regis III. The scientific journey quickly turns into a search mission for lost crewmates. Follow its trail, but be fully aware that every decision you make can bring you closer to danger.

Uncover mind-boggling scientific phenomena in a cosmic, philosophical adventure set within eerie landscapes. Discover fragments of what’s lost and report to your Astrogator, let his voice aid you in hard times.

You couldn’t have foreseen humanity’s biggest threat. It will force you to rethink mankind’s ambitions and biases. Go on - make decisions, follow the mystery… but remember not to underestimate the brutal simplicity and brilliance of evolution.

Robots, people… Choose whether to interact with different creatures on Regis III or how to do it. Friend, companion? Enemy? You never suspected what these words might really mean before you got here.

Immerse yourself in the atompunk atmosphere by using various tools, such as a telemeter or a tracker, and drive a vehicle through a stunning landscape. Experience realistic interactions with analogue technologies in a retro futuristic timeline.

The Invincible is a first-person game based on the motifs of The Invincible - an iconic novel of the world-known, hard science-fiction author and Polish futurologist Stanisław Lem.

There are places like Regis III, not prepared for us and for which we are not prepared for. Still, our spacecraft inevitably comes closer to the destination - for our stories and fates to cross in a dead spot.

Happy November!

Talos Principle 2 out in 2 more days!

Having just replayed Talos 1 and finally completing the DLC, I nearly forgot how incredible it was. Genuinely engaging, moving and thought provoking in a way no other game does, since no other games are focused on this kind of play and subject matter.
Quite easily in my top 10 games I think, so it's amazing that Talos 2 has managed to arrive. I hope it's successful!

The game is looking ridiculously good. The demo seems to only offer a glimpse of the kind of thing to expect, but even that was showing a great direction albeit very loosely outlined to avoid spoilers. The latest footage is showing there is so much more. Definitely going to savour this release, and once again finish it thoroughly with no guidance!


Also some of my own screenshots of Talos 2 demo, minus HDR which Steam is at least correctly tonemapping down

Happy Halloween, I guess.


I'm. Not sure if it's possible, but at some point I would like to visit both Shibuya and Salem Massachusetts during Halloween. Just to see what's ita like.

Go to one for costumes and the other one for spooky Halloween goodness.

From the brief snippets I've seen I'm quite curious about The Invincible.

Hoping it and Talos 2 are good.

Only two months left for the year :face-screaming-in-fear:

It has been non-stop games coming out. I still need to finish any of the longer games I started, but last month I did play and complete something like 20 short games which is a new personal record for me.

This month, I am checking out Little Goody Two Shoes, Star Ocean, and Persona Tactica. Keeping tabs on the Bluey game, I am hoping it is somewhat good because it would be a fun one to play with my daughter. Otherwise I should probably hold off for the winter sale even though I do not plan on picking up much this year.

I still need to complete Talos 1, but I had started it in VR and did not get too far.

There are things that I like and dislike about Google. I like and dislike Google photo. I think it's cool that it's around and that for the long amount of times they let you keep a bunch of photos on there. I will eventually have to end up deleting a lot of them. A good 50+% of them are of anime girls from my younger years. I do like how I did take screenshots and stuff of manga I was reading as a log and stuff.


It's because of Google photos that I was able to find this gem.

Sorry for hiding it.

It took me roughly 10 hours to beat Need for Speed Undercover.

I give it a 6.6/10. It sucks but it can also be fun at times. But also very broken and just tedious at times. I don't think I will ever play this game again and I'm definitely never going to 100% this game.

We can hate Bobby Kotick as much as we want but it is undeniable that he is cold blooded executive who smelled Bungie shenanigans from far away and that is probably reason why they let them go kinda easy. And now Sony got trapped with them and got another PR issue.

Also The Talos Principle 2 month, woo hoo!!!

Thanks for the thread, Mor.

Can’t believe it’s November. A third of this year (from around March to June/July) has been a complete haze for me due to my concussion. I just can’t believe we’re nearly at the end…

At any rate, November means it’s Persona 5 Tactica month for me. And I may get The Talos Principle 2 too.

I know this is not Steam nor PC gaming, but never in my restless dreams I would've ever thought for Silent Hill to become like this



I was watching a bit of the pre-show with the interview with devs and producers and they were fucking delusional.
I'm talking about "PS3 is available for only 599,99 US Dollars" level of delusion.
"Metal Gear Survive" level of delusion.

Another great OP, Mor! Nice to see another Yakuza game dropping, and the next mainline one is coming early next. Loved my time with Y6 and looking forward to seeing the newer games. Crazy to see how Kiryu continues to be active. Guy has to be in his 60s in the games, right?
