    If it does cross platform with PC, I'd be down to play. I put the game down a while back, shortly before they redid the gearing system the first time, and with the new expansion I've been wanting to get back into it.

    My assumption is that there's no cross platform play for it, but I dunno for sure either way.

    So I was trawling around on Steam today and found this:
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/617290/Remnant_From_the_Ashes/

    I'd never heard of it before, but the description was right up my alley and the reviews were amazingly positive, so I took a shot on it. So far, I'm loving it. It's an extremely strange genre mashup I would never have even considered, the best way I can think of to describe it is "A Soulslike Looter-Shooter", but somehow it works really well. I'm only an hour or two in, but I'm really enjoying it; the combat is satisfying and feels "right", and it just seems like a well-put-together game that, somehow, went completely under my radar.

    So MechWarrior 5 is an Epic Store exclusive. Fucking hell, I hate Epic Games.

    You're about a month late on that. People already guessed that was going to happen once they reworked the FAQ/website to toss out any mention of Steam. PGI is shit. Nothing's new about that. Now go on and play MechWarrior Living Legends, the only good modern MW game.

    And regarding this particular game, don't hate too much on Epic, they only offered the choice, PGI chose to accept it because it's fucking PGI.

    I'm a few hours into Control, and having a lot of fun with it so far. It's got a good, weird atmosphere, and the gameplay is pretty satisfying so far, particularly the telekinesis.

    Its basically the closest we'll ever get to a AAA SCP Foundation videogame.

    I love it and I love all the references to SCP in the game. One of the few games since Mass Effect that I've read every collectible that I found.

    9/10 would recommend it to everyone.

    Only flaw is that the game has some performance issues that can be a little annoying.

    Also, Dying Light 2 recently released a gameplay demo showing off the game and I have to say it looks amazing, especially the choices and consequences presented in the game. It officially looks far more intersting than Cyberpunk in my honest opinion.

    Check it out:

    I played it at my friend's house. I'd actually say don't get it on ps4 if that's your console of choice. Constant framerate dips into the single digits - unacceptable for me.

    If you're talking about Control there, yeah, the PS4 framerate can get pretty terrible at times - I'm no expert on these things at all, but there's been a couple of times where it slows so much you'd think it was low-grade stop motion. Still thoroughly enjoying it though, tbf.

    Maybe not the right thread for this, but ohwell. Starting on the 5th, Mario Master Colosseum 3 (MMC3) will be streaming on Grand Poo Bear's twitch channel. It's a charity fundraiser event. There's going to be 20 or so of the best and most entertaining Mario streamers/personalities playing various Mario games, many of them with twists, like relay races and level building contests and things like that. The Mario community is one of the most chill and nicest around, and they're all great people. I watched the last two in their entirety, and it's a great event.

    Uhh, doesn't Nintendo tend to be rather draconian with this kind of thing? I'm honestly kinda shocked they haven't gotten a C&D letter already.

    None of the speedrunning charity marathons (GDQ, et al) have gotten shut down in their years of operation.

    Gonna wait for reviews, but I'm getting excited for it.

    Man, that has to be the most under-the-radar game I've ever seen. I've literally seen nothing about it except here.

    I feel like it will be at least as good as Dragon Age Inquisition.

    Dragon Age Inquisition wasn't good though.
