Hey, here's a hot take. With Xbox embracing their PC gaming legacy by dedicating a studio to Age of Empires and even publishing a 4X strategy game with Ara History Untold, they should try getting a licensing agreement with Lucasfilm to make a Star Wars RTS game the way Ensemble Studios helped develop Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds with LucasArts. That game was soooooooo good!!! Still is!

Has anyone here been playing Infinite on a somewhat regular basis? I'm only able to play for like 2-4 hours a week, so the grind to finish my battle passes have been slow lol. Hopefully I'll be done with both battle passes within the next month or two.

I'm still really enjoying the game! God the gameplay loop is so good lol

Not as much lately but I completed S1, and halfway through S2 of the battlepass.

As I was hoping for in E3 2022: mapping DualSense's better features (haptic feedback/tension trigger) onto Xbox (Elite &/or standard).

How's the remainder of the year looking like for everyone in regards to games they'll be playing? So far I'll be playing

Grounded
Pentiment
Persona 5 Royal
Soul Hackers 2
TMNT: Cowabunga Collection
And finishing up my Halo Infinite battle passes and doing my LASO run (when network co-op launches) before Season 3 starts

If we take about Xbox, for me it will be finishing these two games:

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3

AI: Somnium Files Nirvana Initiative

and playing these two when they come out:

Soul Hackers 2

Persona 5 Royal

If I manage to beat at least all these by the end of the year, I'll be satisfied. And if I have some spare time, maybe I'll play Star Ocean as well.

I honestly couldn't say what the issue is at Square when it comes to what platforms they decide to release their games on. Some games skip PS such as Triangle Strategy, Octopath Traveler, and Harvestella. Then you have some games that Square decides to release on Xbox like Star Ocean and The DioField Chronicles (note how Star Ocean is skipping Switch for whatever reason). Plus we already know Sony moneyhats Squares big AAA games like FFVIIR, FFXVI, and Forspoken. Although VIIR timed deal has supposedly come to an end and yet still no port to Xbox, as I said, I couldn't say what the issue is with Square releasing some of their games on some platforms but not others. It's not just Xbox, they've skipped a few games on PS as well and even on Switch.

Ultimately, I'd say if you want to play every Square Enix game, your best bet isn't even owning a PS5 or Switch (exclusively) but surprisingly, owning a gaming PC seems to better guarantee you seeing all of these games from FFVII and FFXVI to Harvestella and Star Ocean

Edit: or just buy a PS5+Switch, that would probably be cheaper than getting a decent gaming PC. 

As I said this before numerous times, it's hard to blame Square Enix for not porting the games to Xbox. Different companies do business differently. Square just don't see the benefit of bringing certain smaller games to Xbox because they know they won't sell really well, and they probably know that whatever growth they can reach by bringing these games to Xbox, won't be enough for them from business perspective to even try. Other Japanese companies like Bamco, SEGA, etc. maybe also not satisfied with how their games sell on Xbox, but they see the potential for growth. Square most likely doesn't.



 

Finished The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope.

... Are they serious about that ending? I'm not going into the story aspects here but it's very predictable what happens throughout the game (because it basically repeats itself over and over again). What's not predicatble is the ending which kinda reminds me of criticism people had about Man of Medan's ending but this one here is so much worse.

There's another thing I need to mention. On a technical level - even with the big black bars - the performance still tanks on a regular basis.

Overall a pretty disappointing game. I prefer Man of Medan. House of Ashes didn't review any better so I'm not sure if I can look forward to playing that one. Will do it anyway eventually.

7/10

I can imagine someone like Compulsion Games taking a crack at this after Project Midnight.
