I wonder if their long-term game is to open their own storefront on PC to better compete with Steam and Microsoft.

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

Yeah I probably would never have even gotten into gaming if it weren’t for consoles. PC games are fun, but gaming on a PC is not for everybody.

@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

I’d say that’s because PCs have become more console-like. I’m personally gaming a lot on a deck now, although I still have zero desire to hunker down behind a desk and fiddle around with a mouse and keyboard, tinkering with settings and whatnot. Deck is a nice middle ground, and having access to a lot of older PC classics is fantastic.

Most of these also want to lock down their VR as a platform, instead of being ubiquitous hardware like a monitor, and I think lack of standardization is gonna hurt them in the long run by narrowing their audience.

This. This is what I believe is holding back this tech more than anything else. Even pricing. Just make the hardware and let people play with it however they want, just like they could when PCs first became a thing.

As inclined I am to agree with you on a personal level, kids these days are trained to think games just come with MTX, and all bonus content in a game that isn’t a loot box is just paid DLC. All Microsoft has to do is just make this the easiest way to get Xbox games, keep it going long enough, and people eventually won’t know any better or even care anymore. Then they ratchet up the price to make it feel like they’re still profiting from console sales as well.

I’m probably just getting pessimistic with age, but corporations just see dollar signs with subscriptions and reduced expenses with digital distribution. Then they will outlive you and me.

It may be objectively better for players to have physical copies of their games installed on hardware they have dominion over, but we are unlikely to be around to prove that to our great grandkids. We can’t even guarantee even our own children will care enough to try to tell theirs. I’m almost certain owning physical copies of digital content is going to be for niche hobbyists in the future.

Who, in your opinion, is the most annoying character in any game?

Personally, it’s Faith from Farcry 5 for me. Uninteresting dialog that can be summed up to “I was bullied once” and that’s it. Literally every other character is so much more interesting. Jacob gives you a sequence where you run through a gulag which he then uses against you, John tries to kill you and is openly hateful...

For me it’s Jessica Chobot replacing the journalist in Mass Effect 2.

We didn’t have much money when we were kids, so when I cousin brought over his SNES with LttP, my mind was totally blown.

I'll give it less than a week until someone puts an app meant for something else on the App Store that actually just solves this problem for everyone. Then less than 6 months before they make it subscription only.

I'll pick it up if it comes to PS5. I hope they'll be inclined to do the same for ES6.

Japanese people love their handhelds. I suspect it had a bigger impact than others think.

This is stretching things a bit, but I’d like to throw in Skies of Arcadia if you like retro games. They’re also fantasy Sky-ships instead of real ones.

Yeah, I might be an idiot on this, but imo Nintendo and whoever judged this case have committed a far more egregious crime. Nothing Bowser did hurt a single soul anywhere near as much as Nintendo and that judge has decided to hurt him in retaliation. Some numbers were slightly less high as some people might speculate they could have been. That’s it. Fuck Nintendo. Fuck their inhumanity and the same of their judge.

Good thing they laid off all those people, too. /s

Get the PS5 now or wait for the pro?

I’m looking to get back into console gaming. PlayStation has been around for most of my life and I always played on that console. I am conflicted if I should wait for the PS5 PRO or just go get the PS5 now because what would be the net benefit of waiting versus getting a console now. What do you all think about this conundrum?...

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

The PS4 allowed people to choose between frame rate and graphical prowess. The PS4 Pro basically eliminated the necessity to choose. We’re seeing games on PS5 that give you similar options, so I assume a PS5 Pro will also render those preferences unnecessary.

Is having ray tracing at 60FPS important enough for you to wait? Furthermore, do you have patience if PS5 pros are hard to come by for the first 3-6 months of availability?

Monster Hunter World, again. Had been playing Sunbreak together until a friend wanted to prove world was the better game for some stupid reason. I genuinely like both, but SB was so much better for multiplayer.

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

I don’t know anything about this game, but none of the videos look even remotely appealing to me. It just looks like an AI fever dream mishmash of frequency fadding genres. What am I missing with this?

Eggyhead, (edited )
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

Original demographic? I don’t know man, I’m almost 40 and the Palworld trailer just looks like a bunch of zoomer shit to me. (Which is fine, of course.)

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

I have no qualm against the game itself or the developers. And I hope my AI claim didn’t sound like an accusation, just more of an observation, as some of those genre blends seem so awkwardly juxtaposed.

I am legit curious about the game due to the popularity. I might actually get it on deck if it’s a game my buddy and I can have a good laugh with online.

Eggyhead,

Story-mode co-op? Massive, enthusiastic yes please.
Competitive matches? Fine for anyone who likes that sort of thing, I guess.

Uncanny timing for my Deck’s RMA repair. I had been deep into Sunbreak.

FWIW, Capcom has acknowledged the issue publicly and clearly do not want this to be the case. It’ll probably be fixed sooner rather than later.

Steam link doesn’t work for external games added into your steam library? I’m new to steam in general, but it seems weird that they’d let you add a game and not use them with link.

I’ve generally stopped buying Ubisoft games not because I don’t want to, but because of an issue with my Connect account. I think I had let my PS3 set one up for me back in the AC2 days with an email that is now long defunct (I deleted it after an acquisition that put my privacy at risk).

Now they want me to verify that email so much that some games have actually refused to let me play. I contacted their “support” to request the option to update my email, proving that the registered email is inactive and that I am in complete control of the linked PlayStation account, but they pretty much told me to kindly F off because they care too much about my privacy (lol).

I like some Ubisoft games, I just don’t have confidence spending money on anything they publish when I don’t know which ones might preemptively lock me out.

I figure I’ll just replace the account entirely at some point, but only when there’s a game I absolutely think would be worth the hassle. It just sucks to see my OG account end up trashed over such a dumb reason.

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

Yeah I get it, but I don’t really mind that sort of stuff. You know what to do, it’s only mildly challenging, traversal is kind of fun. For me it’s relaxing.

I can’t stand rogue-likes or arena style multiplayer games, so I never touch any of that.

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

I think I have this game on switch. I only played a little bit and gave up because I sucked so much. Maybe I should do exactly as you are, get it for cheap on deck and scale down the difficulty to story mode. I've heard it was a good game.

What's the quickest way to find a magazine/community you've subscribed to? (kbin.social)

I've been using kbin since the Reddit exodus and I still don't really know the path to finding my way into a specific community/magazine I've subscribed to. I usually search for the name using the search function, then hope I find a thread from there in the results where I can just click directly into it. Surely there must be a...

I've attached a screenshot of what I see when I go to my profile. Maybe I'm just blind, but I can't find a "subscribed" list for magazines. There's the one for threads, but posts from more obscure communities are difficult to navigate to.

Edit: I found it. I need to click on the rightward-arrow next to "Followers" under my banner in order to reveal "Subscribed".
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

I had subbed to Arcade back when this came out just to see if I’d be into such a service. I even bought a backbone one. I played just a little bit of WoD, about half of that adorable diorama JRPG from the final fantasy guy, and maybe a few minutes of a lot of other stuff. It’s all really good stuff, I just really can’t get into gaming on a phone. My backbone has been largely untouched for years.

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

Oh. Well then I guess that just makes it completely okay for ads to just be in games now. Good thing you cleared that up.

Eggyhead,
@Eggyhead@kbin.social avatar

That makes sense. I’m actually not used to microblogs, and I never actually got into Twitter, so the distinguishing characteristics don’t really stand out to me as much. I think the color variation would help me better process what I’m looking at.

I am very pleased that this is possible, but I don’t even know what words to use to even ask how to do something like that.

Everyone is bored of CoD’s crazy skins (www.gamingarcade.co.uk)

Call of Duty has undergone significant transformations over the years, notably in the balance between realistic and whimsical skin designs. The evolution of in-game cosmetics has become a hot topic among the dedicated fan base. The turning point for Call of Duty came with Modern Warfare 2019 and th

Some of the graphical details in the trailer make me wonder if this game is getting dumbed down for a switch release, in which case I’ll opt for a steam version over PS5 since it’ll play nicely on Deck.

Monster Hunter Rise runs wonderfully. I don’t know about world.

Rise isn’t nearly as bad as world was. I hope the trend continues in that direction.

My friends brought me kicking and screaming into Unite, then world… it wasn’t until Rise that it finally clicked for me and became fun. Then I went back to world and was blown away.

Destiny 2 also happens to be a total confusing mess if you simply want to try to get into it now rather than seven years ago.

For older games that are difficult to install or run by modern means., I think remakes and remasters are completely justified. Upgrades for older games to support newer technologies is nice, but something like TLoU Part 1 getting two remasters on a platform that has no issue running the first remaster already seems more exploitative and a waste of resources than conservational. If it sells like hotcakes, though, who am I to judge?
