I would, but I sold my soul a long time ago when I signed up for Steam just because it was the only store that had a game I wanted to play. Weirdly enough I did not go to the internet to whine about store exclusivity. I probably should've.

Dude! There's no need to turn everything into an attack.

Can't jest around these parts these days.

Though, there are more than a few games I've bought on GoG, despite them being on Steam, so I'm not sure why he sold his soul to Steam, but then bought it back and sold it again for $10.

Buying games too fast on the Epic Games Store can lock your account
https://www.pcgamer.com/buying-games-too-fast-on-the-epic-games-store-can-lock-your-account/
The Epic Games Store's first major sale has had its fair share of teething problems, with games like Bloodlines 2 and Oxygen Not Included removed from the store shortly after the sale kicked off, followed by Borderlands 3. There are still plenty of discounts, but buying a lot of games could potentially result in your account being blocked from making more purchases.
Last week, streamer Patrick Boivin claimed he bought five games on the Epic Games Store and then his account was flagged as potentially fraudulent.
“This was a result of our aggressive fraud rules,” Epic Games' senior PR Nick Chester told Game Revolution. “If players run into this issue, they should contact player support so we can investigate.”

Electronic Arts showcases next-generation hair rendering, giving us a glimpse at next-gen graphics

MODS/EMULATORS

You can now play as Takayuki Yagami from Yakuza Judgment in Yakuza Kiwami 2
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/you-can-now-play-as-takayuki-yagami-from-yakuza-judgment-in-yakuza-kiwami-2/
Judgement, also known as Project Judge and Judge Eyes, is the upcoming Yakuza spin-off that SEGA is currently working on. And while this game has only been announced for PS4 (at least for now), PC gamers can play as its protagonist in Yakuza Kiwami 2 thanks to a brand new mod.
This mod, called Yakuza Kiwami 2 mod: “Takayuki Yagami v.1”, is created by modder ‘Moonspell’ and replaces the Kiwami2 main protagonist Kazuma Kiryu with Takayuki Yagami from Yakuza Judgment. Takayuki Yagami’s 3D model will also replace Kiryu’s model during cut-scenes and the mini games, thus making it feel pretty consistent and cool (or should I say “rad”).
In order to install it, you’ll have to download it from here, create a Backup of “chara.par” and “db.par”, then use the Patcher (xdelta3) with the Patchfile, and then copy the new db.par to your Gamefolder “Data”.

Ninja Gaiden Ryu Hayabusa mod released for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/ninja-gaiden-ryu-hayabusa-mod-released-for-sekiro-shadows-die-twice/
Ninja Gaiden and Sekiro fans, here is something for you today. Christianbliss has released a brand new mod that brings the iconic ninja, Ryu Hayabusa, to FromSoftware’s latest action/stealth game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
(...)
As the modder noted, and even though this 3D model also replaces Wolf’s model for all the in-game cut-scenes, its rigging is not perfect. In fact, Christianbliss described as “kinda bad” so expect to see some visual glitches and inconsistencies here and there. Still, the mod is functional and I’m pretty sure that some players will be interested in it.
>> The mod is available from Nexus Mods, but in order to run it you'll also need to install the Mod Engine.

Tuesday news, part two:

Rogue hit with multiple nerfs in Hearthstone balance update
https://www.pcgamer.com/hearthstone-card-balance-update-to-rebalance-rogues/
Since Hearthstone's Rise of Shadows expansion released last month, Rogue decks have been enjoying the kind of ubiquitous popularity on ladder that means two things: 1) Some of the class's cards are straight-up busted, and 2) Blizzard is about to take a trip to nerftown.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer pledges improved safety and inclusivity in online games

Earlier this month, Microsoft shared some examples of "trash talk" in an Xbox Community Standards update that were amusing in their relative inoffensiveness, substitution of "" and "" for actual profanity and racial slurs, and heavy reliance on "potato" as an insult, which I'll admit is a new one on me. But the company seems serious about addressing abusive behavior in games, a point Head of Xbox Phil Spencer emphasized in a blog post in which he wrote that "gaming is for everyone."

That's just one side of the war, however, and it's accompanied by larger, turn-based campaigns where you manage a 1:1 scale conflict, setting your battalions up for the real-time battles. Check out the video above to see it in action.

GRID 2 available for free on Steam, The Sims 4 available for free on Origin
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/grid-2-available-for-free-on-steam-the-sims-4-available-for-free-on-origin/
Now here is a pleasant surprise. Codemasters and Electronic Arts are currently offering for free GRID 2 and The Sims 4 on Steam and Origin, respectively. These aren’t your typical “free to play” offers, meaning that you will keep these games yours forever once you acquire them.
The Sims 4 will be available for free on Origin until May 28th and you can acquire your free copy from here. On the other hand, GRID 2 will be available for free on Steam until May 22nd and you can get it from here.
>> Too bad I already have GRID 2 (tho I think I also got it for free). I didn't like neither of the first two The Sims games, so I couldn't care less about EA's deal.

In the case of the new Humble TinyBuild Bundle, however, I will make an exception. The full collection is a good deal, as usual, but if you're really only willing to spend a single lousy dollar, then this is the place to do it.

Valve won't count Assassin's Creed Unity's 'reverse review bombing' against it
https://www.pcgamer.com/valve-wont-count-assassins-creed-unitys-reverse-review-bombing-against-it/
Following the devastating fire in the Notre Dame Cathedral, Ubisoft pledged €500,000 to aid in its restoration and made Assassin's Creed Unity—set in Paris during the French Revolution—free for a week. Shortly after that, hundreds of positive reviews flooded into the game on Steam. It was, as far as I know, the first high-profile instance of "reverse review bombing," in which users post "off-topic" reviews to artificially inflate a game's score.
It seems clear enough that this is the case: Unity's overall user review rating on Steam is "mixed," while recent reviews are "mostly positive." But was it actually a review bombing at all? And if so, how does it fit with the actions Valve has recently taken to lessen the effects of negative review bombs? I'll be honest, it's not something I thought about, but as seen in this lengthy new meditation on the topic, Valve really has.

First nude mod released for Yakuza Kiwami 2, allowing Naked Platinum Hostesses in the Cabaret Club

Well, it was bound to happen. Yesterday, we informed you about a 3D model swapper for Yakuza Kiwami 2. Created by modder ‘Moonspell’, that mod replaced the Kiwami2 main protagonist Kazuma Kiryu with Takayuki Yagami from Yakuza Judgment. And today, the same modder released the first nude mod for this Yakuza game.
According to its description, this mod lets you play with real Nude Platinum Hostesses in the Cabaret Club. Moreover, all the hostesses will be naked during the cutscenes and the minigames (in which you talk with them in bars or restaurants).

But of those people complaining, I think literally nobody expected buffs to actually ever happen. But here we are, just a day later, and that is exactly what is happening. Yep, for the first time since (we think) the game left beta, Blizzard is actually making some bad cards better. What a time to be alive.

Wobble Jump, a free game made by skilled pixel artist and developer castpixel, really captures the look, feel and sound of old LCD systems, despite existing only as a digital browser game. With its anime stylings, I doubt it would have been released outside of Japan, but I can see it in a gaming shop in Akihabara in the early 1990s—and you could have done worse, in that fictional scenario, than to pick it up.

We're big fans of Path of Exile. It's a great action RPG and one of the most generous free-to-play games in the world. However I've always found that the combat lacked impact compared to its genre stablemates, especially in close quarters. That could be about to change with update 3.7, which reworks core animation systems, adds more detailed hit detection, and boosts melee stun to make close combat snappier.
