It's a good time to be a PC gamer, this is a good move for Square Enix. I really like how even games from decades ago are still playable and very affordable. There's a big market for quality single player RPGs as evidenced by the success of Baldurs Gate 3 and Persona 5 Royal.

Ernest needs to quickly delegate or this instance will quickly die (kbin.social)

I appreciate that earnest made a post yesterday, or maybe it was the day before, saying that he is not dead and hasn't given up on kbin. It's not on this magazine, so I'm not sure where it was since this seems to be the most appropriate one, but in any case....

Let him do it at his own pace, he has more important things to worry about right now.

RE: Is Ernest still here? (kbin.social)

I check in here quite often, but for now, I'm just focusing on clearing spam and keeping the instance alive. In January, I was working on the AP module, and there has been significant progress in the work, which hasn't been publicly published yet. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the year, I developed a skin condition that...

Dude, I'm sorry you're going through that, I wish you a speedy recovery. Take all the time you need, your health should come first.

Ernest just replied, has been dealing with medical stuff but apparently a patch is in the works.

Epic Games reportedly hit by 189GB hack, including login and payment info (www.rockpapershotgun.com)

The report comes from Cyber Daily, who also broke the news of last year’s confirmed hack attack on Insomniac Games. The site claims that new ransomware group Mogilevich are the culprits, as per the screencap of a darkweb posting above, and that the hackers are now trying to get Epic or another party to pay up for the return of...

Free games in exchange for identity theft. No thanks.

What are some hidden indie gems nobody knows about?

Which indies did you discover and would love more people to know about? I’ll start: The Pale Beyond. Not sure if it’s a hidden gem tbh, but it’s such a good story rich game. I laughed, I cried and felt the characters struggles. If you like story rich games/ choices matter, check it out.

the Skyrim total conversion mod, Enderal: Forgotten Stories, blew me away, and it's free if you own Skyrim. Even has its own installer and game page on Steam.

It depends on what kind of character I want to RP; sometimes that's a dude, sometimes not.

I'm guessing streamers who want to make a video about the terribleness for views are the ones willing to pay so much for this game.

Awesome, the physics look like how I remember them from Tribes 1!

Yup. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

It's wild when companies commit suicide, reminds me of when tumblr banned porn.

Cause it's the game dev that never ends it just goes on and on my friends…

If they do this, I will be avoiding buying any SEGA games for the foreseeable future.

They did it to themselves. No one will trust them not to change the pricing model again.

Well at least Microsoft can't ruin Blizzard any more than Activision ruined it.

I'm all for it and I think it's funny when people give me crap for it.

76 is really good now though, my most played game atm.

Funny how completed games are cheaper than games that are still in development/public beta.

Stadia's death spiral, according to the Google employee in charge of mopping up after its murder (www.pcgamer.com)

A statement from a Google employee, Dov Zimring, has been released as a part of the FTC vs Microsoft court case (via 9to5Google). Only minorly redacted, the statement gives us a run down of Google's position leading up to Stadia's closure and why, ultimately, Stadia was in a death spiral long before its actual demise....

Because everything ran locally at a datacenter, the real killer app of Stadia would have been a super-massively multiplayer game. There wouldn't be any problems with latency between game states, (any lag would be between the server and the console.) Imagine massive wars or mediaeval battles with thousands of participants. They never developed games that took advantage of what was unique about the platform.

Larger massive multiplayer capability was one of the features Google was touting upon Stadia's launch:

Over time, Buser [Google’s director of games] says we should not only see additional exclusive games on Stadia, but also cross-platform games doing things on Stadia “that would be impossible to do on a console or PC.” Instead of dividing up virtual worlds into tiny "shards" where only 100 or 150 players can occupy the same space at a time because of the limitations of individual servers, he says Google’s internal network can support living, breathing virtual worlds filled with thousands of simultaneous players.

Let's be real, Overwatch 2 was an update patch that they tried to sell as a sequel.
