    Dead Space remake (2023)

    While this won't stop me from playing, I really liked the way the old game controlled. It made you feel like you were actually wearing a space mining rig. Though I understand why that could be bothersome.

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn

    I too shall be waiting for a sale if only for my backlog and the length of the game. Did buy it for my brother at full price for his birthday as this was our first ever "tactics" game back in the day. So far he says it's solid.

    Gotham Knights

    Because in the era of digital downloads there's literally no reason unless you want the cosmetic bonuses.

    Texas Instruments makes it harder to run programs on its calculators

    The ironic thing for me was i never had any programs but i always saved notes and formulae in text as programs. Now granted i cant think of a single time a teacher actually checked my calculator but if they did the programs never ran but if you went to edit it they were always there. Most of my...

    The Lords of the Fallen

    Can't we hold game companies to a better standard for naming? This is practically criminal. Also, I don't recall the first game being too well received, but I could be wrong about that.

    Vampire Survivors

    It's surprisingly addictive.

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn

    Looks like each class has an average of 3 to 5 unique skills going off a random gameFAQs page I'm looking at. So I'm saying that 17 common skills, 16 stat-based skills, 50-ish magic spells, and somewhere between 132-220 unique skills is a lot. Though I admit I didnt look at every single class so...

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn

    I think it's the skills more so than the spells. I don't remember specifics but a quick glance at some FAQs shows 44 classes, lots of which have unique skills and then there's like 50+ spells.

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn

    If you've never played the game before and are into SRPGs, I think $50 is a valid price as long as the QoL improvements are noticeable. If you've played it before or are more lukewarm on the genre I can see why $50 would be steep. As much as I love the game, I don't have the time to play it...

    Tactics Ogre: Reborn

    Sweeeeeeeeeeet. This game had so many cool things, like snapshot which literally turned your character into a sword that would be equipped by another character. Also several distinct story paths.

    How to upgrade as little as possible the Macbook and using it to connect Apple services and iPhone with new iOS for as many years as possible.

    This is arguably one of the coolest threads I've seen in a good while. And while I have no suggestions, I wish you the best of luck.

    Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Kick Starter.

    This Isn't the actual Kickstarted suikoden-like game. It's the sidescrolling action prequel. Still looks good but everyone keeps forgetting that difference. The actual game most people are expecting is still a 2023 expected release.

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    A lot of 8-bit games hold up, I agree. But equal to more don't. For every Mario there's a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For every megaman there's s Mickey Mousecapade. For every castlevania there's a Simon's quest.

    What was the launch of the PS1 like?

    Although I understand your knee jerk reaction to that train of thought, I actually agree with it. A lot of the ps1-era games don't hold up for variety of reasons beyond their actual game quality like sound processing, poor graphics, poor programming, and clunky controls. Similar to a lot of...

    Never played F.Fantasy. Where to start?

    Without any context on what types of games the OP likes or dislikes, this thread might as well be called "what is your favorite FF game?"

    Star Ocean The Divine Force

    Till the End of Time does a good job of bridging the gap, but yeah these games typically lean on "Don't break the prime directive" and as a result are slightly less unique than they could be. Especially in the early/mid game.

    Star Ocean The Divine Force

    I'm the type of person that will play any SO game, even the terrible gatcha one, so unfortunately I will also inevitably play this one. However the series peaked at Second Story, cratered with Last Hope, and was only slightly playable with Integrity and Faithlessness (terrible nane notwithstanding).

    Court issues permanent injunction in Epic v. Apple case

    There's a difference between features like the card system, and basic functions like a shopping cart. If anything EGS should've started with more functionality because steam has been around so long. It'd be like creating a car company now and your first car is a model T. They don't need to be...

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

    Which is a bit of what i was getting at. It was a remake made for modern audiences relative to the '95 film. Saying that something is "remade for modern audiences" is just as likely to be jargon fluff as it is to be substantial insinuation. Your point literally doesn't stand when you ask...

    Gotham Knights

    I was so pumped for season 3, but 6 episodes in and I'm not digging it. It feels like there's a whole season of backstory that they just skipped, and I kinda feel they're doing Jason Todd dirty. For what it's worth, tho he's a main antagonist, he's not really on screen all that much.

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    Except in that analogy you can always buy food/pop elsewhere at msrp at any given time. Also, are you giving kudos to that practice? I think that's what the bigger grievance here is, not that the kid did the thing, but that it's looked on as a positive.

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    The one I went to still teaches Latin. And you typically learn cursive in grade school, which mine still taught until it closed down. And for context I'm 36. But yeah those were some random examples to pull to be sure.

    The Absolute State of the MMORPG Genre

    I'd recommend ff14 for that. You're literally the hero the whole time.

    Aliens: Fireteam Elite

    This looks/feels like maybe L4D but with Aliens which is actually a really great idea in my mind. Hopefully it turns out well.

    Genshin Impact

    Still playing this game daily. Have spent $0 on it. Don't feel like I'm missing out in the slightest. Since it's a free download you might as well try it and see. All you need is an email. No CC info to install.

    Billy Mitchell Now Suing Karl Jobst

    I'm certain he's better at more games than I'll ever be, but I think it speaks volumes that the only time we hear gaming related news about him is lawsuits that he files.

    Moderna Coronavirus vaccine sees positive results in phase one trial

    Again, same thing is true for almost all other drug resistance strains of a given disease. But the way the drugs work (or dont work) changes. Just because it infects humans the same way doesn't mean it'll respond the same way to the same compounds. Even that article you just posted says they may...

    Moderna Coronavirus vaccine sees positive results in phase one trial

    Doesn't matter if they're 99% identical. For example, in TB the majority of drug resistances between strains come from single nucleotide polymorphisms. And those are for drugs where we actually know the mechanism of action, which in the case of the paper you provided remains unclear for...

    Moderna Coronavirus vaccine sees positive results in phase one trial

    You do realize that's a different strain right? And that drugs effect strains differently. So while that study is before things got politicized, it might ultimately be irrelevant to the current strain.
