SoT has had some pretty major updates this last 6 months. I really need to get back into the game.

No stealth, open world or player choices please. Trying to fix what isn't broken by just throwing half-baked ideas mechanics from other games into the mix is awful. Don't get the hype for Gears 5 story either thb.. Stuff about origins of Locust was something we already knew but they just had to tie it to Kait. Meh.

But it literally does legwork in explaining stuff the OG trilogy ignored.  Saying they "just tie it to Kait" too easily disregards how solid the structure/pacing are integrated into the world around you.  There's a moderate wealth of details Kait's uncovered here that echo back on Sera's two previous worldwide conflicts: UIR v. COG and COG v. Locust.  

EDIT:  This is where I make the "it's no Great Shakes" qualifier, of course. :P

Well I'm not sure how much of the stuff Gears 5 explained was from the novels and how much was explained in previous games. But there was still some mystery behind it. Unanswered questions make a more exciting story, just ask David Lynch :D

This is just my opinion of course, but they went too far explaining everything, and they did it to tie it to Kait.

Yeah the UIR v. COG stuff was nice, completely forgot about it. It was great to add Paduk too. But even this stuff was familiar from Aspho Fields novel.

edit. And there was no solid structure or pacing in how JD's development was handled either. Any tension they briefly built was just wiped away.

Yes you should! 

Must say, this latest update doesn't add much new besides too much grinding. But I love lore they're building up with this Mystery Woman.

DayZ, Fallout 76 and Soul Calibur VI are free to play this weekend.

Definitely going to check out SC VI.
Last time a fighting game had a trial weekend (Tekken 7), I achieved the full 1000G in that time. Won't happen here but maybe enough so I don't need to buy it any time soon.

That's one hell of a collection. I don't think I own 100 physical games across all of my systems, and I have almost every major console that has released since I was born in 1989.

Do you actually play these games?



Only have 83 physical X1 games (even sold a couple), so basically 1/10th of your collection.
Got another 488 owned digital games though (90% indies I'd guess).

Hot damn!  I thought my 9 XOne games was a good haul (several being gifts).

Microsoft just casually announcing Xbox Series X at Game Awards, along with Hellblade 2, Wtf, I did not expect that.

I don't like the name, or the design, I hope it's not the final design but damn at the casual announcements, Microsoft is on a roll lately.

That in-engine Hellblade 2 looked awesome.

Ya, I don't understand the choice of name at all. People are gonna get confused with the One X and the Series X, guaranteed. Bad idea imo
