@Octane I'm pretty sure I completed everything in the purple section of tetris swamp, but I'll go back to the red section and see if I missed anything.

Yeah, that sounds right. I'm not as big on the color puzzles so far, but perhaps they evolve into something interesting.

Oh, before I forget: EA's Anthem might be delayed to 2019...to the surprise of no one, I'm sure. The 2018 date was "Never realistic," apparently, and it's a big, complex game with a lot of moving parts. Still, the bigger question is, "will it launch with a ton of game-breaking bugs and balance-swinging microtransactions?" Oh, and "will they rip out important sections of the game so they can sell it later as DLC, because Destiny did it (and clearly no one got angry at Bungie for anything with that game, am I right?)?"

@CanisWolfred I think the answer to all of those questions is yes. I can't see an outcome where all of this would go over well. I mean, it's EA, and it's their Destiny clone. Worst case scenario it's the worst parts of Destiny combined with the worst parts of EA, followed by the closure of Bioware.

Which is a shame, since they are also working on the next Dragon Age game. Not that I'm a big fan of that series, mind you, but Inquisition was alright, at least. Certainly a lot better than Mass Effect: Andromeda. Though, I guess both got bogged down by busywork....does anyone even remember ME:Andromeda? I just sold that one last week. Got tired of looking at it...

I wanna get what you guys are smoking to think closing Bioware Edmonton is even a remote possibility. That's like their flagship developer, it would be like Activision closing Bungie. EA obviously likes having a wide portfolio.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

I wish their flagship developer was working on a Mass Effect trilogy remaster with the graphics of Andromeda.

Given Dark Souls has now been announced, Mass Effect is possibly my only big 7th gen series that hasn't been remastered.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Most of their exclusives seem pretty good to me. Gears of War, Halo, Sunset Overdrive, Cuphead, Forza, Ori and Blind Forest, Quantum Break, etc etc.

They're just fairly clearly inferior to Playstation and Nintendo's exclusives.

And even then, the indies like Cuphead and Ori are on Steam... neither game requires a beefy pc.

And I don't think I'm the only one to think Halo is a shadow of its former self.

It's EA!

Their games sell. Moreover, you can use personal conflicts to justify every assumed negative outcome imaginable, that doesn't necessarily make a one of them rational though.

@Haru17 It's not a personal conflict. I have no stake in EA, their businesses, or any relation outside of working in the same industry.

The reason I say "It's EA!" is because...well they have a track record that betrays them. We can only extrapolate forward based on the past, and the past has shown numerous times the following:

Games underperforms
Studio gets downsized, put on smaller tasks, work on another IP
Fails to perform, gets shuttered.

That's what I am referring to. Not anything personal, just looking at the cold hard facts. You work for EA, you have that knife and proven history over your shoulder at all times.

@YummyHappyPills Interpersonal conflict, bias, slant — whatever you want to call it, it causes you to extrapolate beyond what is certain and assume whatever fits your narrative.

@Haru17 I have no bias. EA has a history of killing off studios. There is that fear, based on factual evidence.

That's it. That's not an opinion. That's not a conflict with me. It's not a bias against EA. It's what has happened.

@Octane oh wow, I'm so glad I'm not the only idiot to ask questions like that haha
It's so weird sometimes what requires that and what doesn't.

That a yes tho? Prolly gonna be good fun to play online, outside of what I've planned with friends anyway, and I think a (little) community on the system itself would make meeting up much more convenient because everyone would be able to see who's online right away and I think you can post stuff in a PS4 community as well, for people who want or need help or just want to do certain quests with others etc.

What a beautiful signature.

@Tsurii As much as I'd like to, I refuse to give them any money for something that should be free.

Peek-a-boo

Blimey, I feel like I am already playing a potential game of the year.

Nope, it is not Dragon Ball FighterZ, nor is it Monster Hunter: World... but a little indie game called Celeste.

I literally rushed home from work yesterday to carry on playing it!

It’s that good.

Since I have been away in Barbados for the past two weeks, I have been out of the loop with regards to almost anything newsworthy.

I am pleased to see that God of War has finally got a release date, on the 20th of April, which will give me time to enjoy Shadow of the Colossus in two weeks time, as well as potentially buying Ni no Kuni II at the end of March depending on my school work and markings to do. Then the Dark Souls Remaster in May!

I’m trying to stick to one game at a time, just like I successfully did last year.

Peek-a-boo

Knuckles-Fajita

@Peek-a-boo You wouldn't have had to rush home from work if you had it on Switch, which is weirdly the system it had the most marketing for.

But I've heard good things about it. Very good things. I'm just trying to find a job and get some new tech before really splashing on games now...
