Sorry for the late results, forgot to tally them up after I closed out voting, lol.

Well, I already have one game ready for 23 at least.

Better start than last year, Lol.

I'm I'm not mistaken, setting your console to New Zealand will allow you to play Hogwarts Legacy in less than 10 hours if you bought digital deluxe. I could stay up late and play tonight, but will wait until morning instead.

Sounds like this project is still years off so it’s likely an MMO then and not a Destiny level GaS title.

Custom engines Dying is really sad and I’m surprised how Sony 1st party is capable of having multiple Engines meanwhile MS are failing at it. I was happy to hear that Arkane Lyon is continuing with Void Engine even their games aren’t that graphical showcases and I was hoping that Tango would continue with STEM Engine considering the improvements that TEW2 had over the 1st game.

This is why I’m hoping that Playground succeed with their custom version of Forza Tech for Fable.

So I can look past all the dumb shit in Fable 2 but … why wasn’t there a lock on lol.

Ride The Chariot || Games Complete ‘24 Edition

Sword & Fairy 7 looks pretty fun, that with Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty really filling that JRPG itch.

I put about a good 2 hours into this game and it did not grab me.  Maybe I need t revisit but the design and feel of the game felt way to restrictive.

Since there is a report that both the UK and EU will deny MS ABK/Blizz, what concessions do Phil believe he can deliver that will make the deal go through. Since Phil is confident, he must feel that their is something he can deliver that will make the regulators happy. Maybe Phil would be happy with just a portion of ABK/Blizz would be interesting if that happen.
