    Anthem - Sekiro's out on Friday

    I'd be really surprised if the internet could mess with your experience in Tarsis. You're not in a shared space then in any way.
  2. @Uzi it's not really clear From the thread title what the release date for this game is, and I can't easily see the information anywhere else in this folder. Can you update the title accordingly?
  3. No, you haven't missed something.

    Destiny 2 - Sekiro's out on Friday

    Yes, all the campaign story missions can be (and by default, are) played solo. There are "Strikes" (a longer mission type, not part of the main campaign) that matchmake you into a 3, but all the campaign and all the post- and side- Adventure content (short story missions) are all solo.
  5. Sure. Why is that a data point that certain types of game are somehow inherently unsustainable?
  6. Is this a Jimquisition thing? I don't think he's as well-informed as he thinks he is.
  7. I don't really understand the point still. (Although it's probably a different discussion.) These games seem to do fine. And other games also seem to do fine. What's inherently unsustainable? The games that are well managed continue on. The ones that aren't don't. It feels like a different conversation to whether a console based on streaming can be successful, but this feels like a non-issue. Would they though? A GaaS currently runs a pretty cost daily because they have to provide all the infrastructure to support the online nature of things. We don't know what Google, for example, would provide in their back-end. It might be their platform fee includes a certain amount of provision (I assume MS or Sony provide developers with all the friend list and party stuff as part of their platform today) and a game on that platform doesn't shoulder all the cost as direct cost.
  8. I don't really understand what you mean by that.
  9. Is it, though? I mean, obviously there's a trend here, (Anthem and Division 2 in recent weeks) but also there's still plenty of just traditional singleplayer stuff (DMC5, Sekiro right now, but loads of stuff both AAA and lower-tier - from Spider-Man to Just Cause to Far Cry and onwards.) I reckon the transition of everything to GaaS is overstated.
  10. No way the Wi-Fi in the tube is uncongested or reliable enough to play Forza as a streamed game. It only works in the stations themselves, for one. What do you do between stations? You could buffer up a bit of Netflix, maybe, (I do manage to keep a streamed podcast alive using tube Wi-Fi.) It's not realistic, unless the game is running at least partly locally.

    Additional patch incoming, to fix the issues with the last patch. No date yet. Masterwork Ember gathering is bugged, which they hope to fix today (no download needed.) They have responded on the increased daily/weekly/monthly change: So fuck that then.

    3 of us, plus a random, did the Tyrant Mine at GM2 last night. (Mainly at my insistence, it has to be said - sorry team.) By design of our gear and how difficult it was, it's probably the level we should be playing at now (kitted out with reasonable Masterworks, one or two Legendary items.) But the reward just isn't there for it. I assume the probability of loot does improve to GM2, but it's certainly not anything like noticeable. And, with the setup they have so that the gear you get is also not any better, it's not worth it twice over. Which is a shame, because I'm reasonably overpowered for GM1 now (much more so since the weekend patch that altered scaling of melee). Which makes that a blast of rinsing through bad guys, but probably shortens its life. And then, the thing I'm most fuming about: the changes to number of daily/weekly challenges you now need for the Monthly rewards. What a bunch of dicks. Also: Titans are pussies now. I still had a crash out of the app to PS4 menu. Boo.

    I don't really think that's the analogy I'd use. It's more like going on a track day in a [insert fancy car name] only every now and then the car explodes.

    It's a fair question. And I don't know if I have a good answer. Other than to say that I actually really enjoy playing the game. I don't and won't deny that it's a dumpster fire. And, given how many issues it has, I don't expect to be playing it for that much longer (primarily because there's not enough to do - I would play for longer if there was more stuff.) The core movement and travelling around is fun. The fighting is fun. The ability to create builds that play differently exists. It's a fun core experience. Literally everything else in the game is a disaster zone.
