Want to stream Rock N' Roll Racing? Blizzard suggests turning off the rock 'n roll
https://www.pcgamer.com/want-to-stream-rock-n-roll-racing-blizzard-suggests-turning-off-the-rock-n-roll/
Last week, Blizzard re-released and remastered three of its lesser-known classics as part of the Blizzard Arcade Collection. But before you go wowing Twitch with your latent Rock N' Roll Racing skills, the studio has some unfortunate news.

Doom Eternal director has 'put a lot of thought' into adding a female Slayer
https://www.pcgamer.com/doom-eternal-director-has-put-a-lot-of-thought-into-adding-a-female-slayer/
The Doomslayer can take on many guises in Doom Eternal. There's the Classic Doomguy, the Mullet Slayer, the Doomicorn, the Night-mare, even the Purple Pony. One thing the Doomslayer has not been, however, is a woman.
That may change someday. During a recent stream, game director Hugo Martin said that he's actually thought about how to best incorporate a female Slayer into the series, because he'd want the character to be more than just another skin.

https://www.pcgamer.com/journey-to-the-savage-planet-is-broken-on-stadia-and-nobodys-left-to-fix-it/
Last month, Journey To The Savage Planet made its Stadia debut. Unfortunately, the sci-fi adventure is broken—and Google just fired all the developers who could've fixed it.
>> I don't use to post news about Stadia (or any other streaming/subscription based service), but tthe irony of this one made it irresistible .

Some additional tidbits from Jims Interview.

"What about PlayStation games on PC?"
"A whole slate of them is on the way starting with Days Gone this spring."

" Firstly, in terms of the straightforward success of the activity of publishing the game on PC, people liked it and they bought it. We also looked at it through the lens of what the PlayStation community thought about it. There was no massive adverse reaction to it." "The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision"

Sounds like they are really committed to porting games to PC!

If you thought Bloodlines 2 development couldn't look more like a trainwreck, you were wrong.

A change of studio is never a good thing. Let's hope for the best but yeah, it doesn't bode well for the game.

HoloDust said:

Not unexpected. All they had to do is honor the original and improve on some of its flaws, but my guess is they decided mid development they want to appeal to mainstream and fucked up everything in the process...

It's published by Paradox, the king of DLCs. Maybe they wanted to change the game to make room for the dozen of DLCs their games have and the studio didn't know how to do it without launching a clearly unfinished game.

That ^

Also, I think it's not impossible that they realized that under 5th edition rules, much of what was Bloodlines would be impossible without breaking the new rules in major ways. 5th edition of V:TM is much more unforgiving and the increases in power much lower compared to previous editions, also the hunger is much, much greater than it was before.

Would they stick to the core rules, then Bloodlines 2 would be more akin to a survival horror game with a constant need to hide and feed.

Great news! The more games that come, the better for us, gamers.

I have to say i'm surprised no one has made a thread about it yet, either someone from the SOny camp to bash Jim Ryan and this new strategy or someone from the MSoft camp to laugh at Sony and claiming that they're copying the strategy MSoft started a while ago.

That's not a bad theme for a game, to be honest, and, if done right, it could still sell a lot.

Speaking of Humble Monthly. I didn't actually had to buy Hollow Knight. I searched my keys and saw that I still had one from 2018. Thanks to Humble I won't ever have to buy any games that are older than 2 years.

You'd hope the port is better. This is Sony's chance to actually show that they care about port quality. If it turns out to be yet another "ait many months until broken AAA game is fixed" scenario, then it's only going to hurt Sony's image when it comes to quality, let alone entering another market (again).
