Hellblade 2, Dying light 2, Elden ring, Horizon Forbidden West and Plague Tale Requiem... Even Alan Wake 2 but thats a bit later down the line i guess. Ofcourse God of war Ragnarok which wasn't here but is still getting closer and closer. Got to admit, this is the most I've been excited in a while, knowing all this games are upcoming.

I checked out the system requirements for FF7 on Epic and was pleasantly surprised to see my PC could handle it, I had been looking forward to it for a bit of time. I'm curious about Dune, is it going to be a 4x solely on Arrakis, anyway, the game that got my attention the most was actually Have a Nice Death, a shame it's not featured here. And now for the hate: that Star Wars game looks like it's going to sport the most generic-looking villain faction possible.

FF7, Dying Light 2, Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring are what I'm looking forward to. Now I just need a PS5 for Horizon. :')

There are actually some good games here. Suicide Squad, Vermentide 2, Space Marine 2, Dune and that Star Trek game all look at least interesting. I'll probably be keeping an eye for them.

i remember watching "the collision" between our 2 president on 1 tv program and it was around 1h30m i was eating and i caught a glimpse of it and i said i will watch it. Lets see for who am i voting for (since im not so much into the politics, but i want to vote for the less evil being). And oh gosh it was boring as hell. I understand u well :)

Atlus being calssic Atlus P4AU on Steam.. at least they gave us a decent game (i like ArcSys fighter games).


Didn't expect FFVII Remake PC to get released this year was a happy surprise.

I just couldn't get into it... I still remember the scene from the first game where I was fighting the shadows next to some gates (close to the start) for 10 or 15minmin with no end until I decided that it's probably that dumb game design thing where you MUST lose for the game to continue (screw you if you can actually time your dodges, basically)... A couple of hours of looking at buckteeth and searching for shapes to align and I was bored out of my mind :/


I really don't get it. It's well-made technically - sure, no denying that.. But then it's got all these awards and I just don't see why. Some artistic portrayal of depression/ PTSD? I don't get it.

To me that is a really good game that def impacted me, the graphics and sound design amazing and story wise it was good as well. I would give it another chance maybe you were impatient or not in th mood of playing puzzle games?

Not sure... I'm playing Kena: Bridge of spirits right now and there's quite a lot of puzzling in it - I am very much enjoying it, the story is superb, etc. I'll give Senua another try, maybe it'll stick if I try it once more.

I really don't wanna go there, but I'd suggest you to check some of their Instagram posts and decide for yourself if that's something you want to support.


Personally I'm not a big fan of an organization telling people to boycott "white owned" businesses, and banks,


Can't blame people for not knowing about the scummy org behind the movement.

Oh god, was that crap in the game awards? WHY!?


Let's take a moment to thank the US for all their unique flavors of corporate greed, abuse and actual systemic problems that led to this garbage being peddled around the world (made possible by the internet, of course)...


"BLM" and "Antifa" - violence and racism IS the answer, judging by their posts and actions... 🤣

Alan wake 2 stole the show for me. You can see all the development troubles they went through with the first game Alan wake - What happened? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2KidaG2ONM Now they have the resources, time and talent to pull off their vision. Alan wake + resident evil/silent hill sounds hype.
