For me, the shocker is that THQ Nordic have brought the name THQ back from the dead. A few years back, I don't think anyone would have thought that would be possible but they have been pretty decent quality as of lately.

I'm also shocked to see so much praise for Dreams. I could see it topping Playstations list for hype but overall? I guess I need to look more into it.

Dreams really does look like a top shelf product. My main concerns with it are that it will likely have a steep learning curve, and will require a significant time investment to get anything out it. The whole thing seems a bit daunting.

Same.

Sony and Media Molecule have talked about adding mouse and keyboard support as well as allowing creators to sell their creations as standalone games. I think that's very important for Dreams' long-term success. If they dare to open the gates completely by releasing Dreams for free on console and PC with a 5% royalty on revenue, they could end up with a highly intuitive and highly competitive engine on their hands.



How did Borderlands 3 get Most Wanted despite 2K and Gearbox's shitty behavior? That's bullshit.



Some days I just blow up.

It's what happens when you focus on the quality of the game instead of the politics behind the scenes.

I'm very curious to see how games that infringe on other companies IP's will be handled. Could be a huge ****storm.

That just makes Borderlands 3's win even more mysterious. 



Dreams has been in development for basically the entire generation, i remember on the PS4 reveal event they showed parts of the game but they didnt formally anounced it, (they did that later on E3 if im not wrong) and that was obviously at the beggining of the generation, so that game must have gone through some sort of development hell, so im very glad to see that the wait has apparently been worth it since its getting such positive reception.

Its a game that i wasnt initially interested in, but i was honestly very impressed after seeing those screenshots of what people can actually do in the game, if it is indeed as good as it seems then i will very likely buy it.



I still can't imagine that Dreams is gonna be big. Do we consider Little Big Planet big? Because that's how big I believe it's gonna be.

Can't wait to hear the first week sales numbers of BL3.

I've read the whole document about various avenues they've tried while building that engine - they tried ton of things and it was indeed long process until they've managed to do exactly what they've envisioned - it's quite unique.

^ this.

If a game is a 90+ meta, and its fans love it.... the politics behinde the scenes... dont matter to like 99% of gamers out there.
