I said it only a few days ago, and I will say it again. Gamepass is going to fuck with my willingness to buy games. 

I bought and played KH3. Granted, it has been a decent window since launch. But I am not a die hard KH fan, I could have waited.

I literally had Two Point in my Steam cart a couple of weeks ago and am very glad I didn't buy it. But it reinforces the message that you shouldn't risk it.

Don't get me wrong, could work out great for Microsoft, and publishers that do well on Gamepass. But they need to be careful they don't become Nintendo, with third parties not feeling they can make money on the system.

Two point was announced long ago that it will be a gamepass day one game. Publishers seem happy so far.

My picks for those that haven't played them:

  • Titanfall 2. Its $5 folks. Just buy it an play the campaign.
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4. Excellent tactical ARPG gameplay!

- Xbox 360:

  • Kingdoms of Amalur - top notch game, dirt cheap. 50 hours of fun easily.
  • Obviously Mass Effect 2 and 3 for cheap but most people have played these if they want too.

I still can't believe that EA hasn't given us a Mass Effect Remaster Trilogy. I remember the producer or director saying like 5+ years ago that he wanted to do one for current gen systems, and work the DLC's into the main storyline at the proper places chronologically. A Mass Effect Remaster Trilogy wouldn't take much effort and would sell well, it's like EA doesn't want money. 

I really hope that THQ Nordic does something with the Kingdoms of Amalur IP after they bought it last year. That IP had so much promise, and EA basically sent it out to die. 

Who will develop it though? Bioware is in a big big trouble right now. They need to fix that shitty game called Anthem ASAP.



 

They should definitely do a Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster, remind themselves what made the original trilogy so amazing, then do Mass Effect 4 following the best ending, which is obviously, High EMS Destroy. 😏

Well, if it was a simple HD remaster of the trilogy instead of a full-on remake, they could find pretty much any old AA studio that has remaster experience to do it. A full-on remake would obviously require a AAA studio though, like Bioware themselves.

Bioware is definitely in pretty sorry shape now sadly, I really hope they don't fuck up Dragon Age 4.

EA promised some remasters of old games coming soon if I'm not mistaken. So, there is still hope for ME remaster, because I don't even know what other popular IPs they have that are fit for remaster treatment.

Yes, always use OpenCritic. Our reviews get put on OpenCritic and can't be put on Metacritic.

Why can't they be put on Metacritic?

It was a long story that I don't remember the reason for. Hopefully we can get back on metacritic in the future.

At this point, EA waited too long to get away with a simple ME trilogy remaster, with upped resolution and frames. That's not gonna cut it now. If they go back, they gotta give me a full on remake. The full trilogy, designed around the Andromeda combat system, with a state of the art graphics overhaul, or at the very least the latest version of Frostbite they can get running well enough without breaking everything, as they are apparently so good at doing.

You have a point about them waiting too late, a simple HD remaster, even at 4K, would be a bit disappointing now, with a new gen beginning and all. But I can't see them doing a full-on remake. It would be very expensive to remake all 3 games in one package with next-gen graphics, and they can't really get away with charging more than $60, maybe if they did them one at a time instead of the full trilogy in one package. Best we can hope for trilogy wise is a partial remake, a partial graphical revamp and a few other tweaks, rather than a full graphical revamp and combat system overhauls.

I'm pro sprint as well and brutally honest those who are against it need to get over it, Infinite WILL have sprint, no point spending months arguing about it, maybe we could compromise like Shika said with a classic playlist for MP? I wouldn't mind that but I'm not confident 343 will do it, at least not for launch.

343 definitely need to improve their map design though like Angelus said.

Oh, so you’re a pro sprint now. Remember when you use to call pro sprint fans sh*t head and illiterate? 😃

Wtf. I've always been pro-sprint. 🤣 Unless it's Locke doing the sprinting. 😏
