Wallet Threat Level

Also out this week, cool looking VR stealth game Espire 1:

The Phoenix Point thread is hopping, people must be excited about that one. Red Dead Redemption 2 comes to steam this week. Ancestor’s comes to consoles this week. Life is Strange 2’s latest episode comes out. Halo Reach comes to PC and Xbox One this week. Anything people are excited about this week?

I am kind of curious about Phoenix Point and Ancestor’s, but not enough to interrupt my playthrough of Jedi: Fallen Order.

I keep forgetting this isn’t a genuine PC title and that it’s locked behind the EGS BS. Except for that I’m eager to see how people like it.

I am excited for this, but mostly to see the reviews at this point so that I can base my purchase decision off of them. If it’s actually good I may pick it up, but for some reason I’m expecting it to pull in some hard 65/100 average scores.

SaGa is one very weird RPG. I haven’t had the luck to play it much, since Fire Emblem then DivOrSin 2 showed up.

It will also be on GamePass!

I will never buy it then. Instead I will add it to my vast Gamepass backlog and get to it when I finish the games that came before it!

The Vita! It lives!!!

By the way, while were all busy with other games and holiday sales and Thanksgiving turkeys and family and such, there were actually a lot of games released last week that I missed. And looks like most of them were for the Switch.

  • Cowboys vs Hipsters | PC, Mac

Too many damn games!

WHAT IS THIS I need it

No kidding. Though Rock Simulator has me curious. Does it really simulate being a rock? So you just sit there? How is that a game?

You have to crank up the difficulty and then it’s a game.

That’s brilliant.

However, it’s against the Qt3 rules since you are cross pollinating threads. :-P

Rock Simulator is on sale btw.

But it looks like Cowboys vs Hipsters got delayed to December 10th:

Unless it’s an Epic exclusive for 2 weeks, that could be a reason too.

Lots of stuff being released. Surprising for the period after Black Friday. I always thought this period is when games are sent out to die. There are some notable exceptions like Far Cry 3, which breaks through despite being released in this period though.

Ashen, Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Hades have my curiosity.

This is a really fun game, I’ve been picking away at it on and off during each update for awhile now. Lots of fun.

I gave up on the Mechwarrior 5 thread here. Way too much detail about the nitty gritty of Mechwarrior online that I don’t need to know about.

When it comes out, I just want to drive around a big old honking Mech with either a joystick or a gamepad, and shoot the leg off stupid enemy Mechs that are unsuccessful at stopping me.

Steam release of Ashen is today too. Looks like there’s now a phenomena of “Epic sucks, will wait for Steam” people now going “it should be 99% off now since a whole year has passed! Screw this game!” after “boycotting” Epic.

I reinstalled my old Mechwarrior 2 CD on Dosbox last year for that, and it works wonder at filling that need!
Never managed to progress much in the campaign, then nor now, but whatever.
But after taking the time and managing the pain of setting up properly my awesome stick, I just went back to keyboard and mouse and found it played infinitely better that way.

Played this on Xbox GamePass. Combat felt clumsy, dumb environmental deaths, and I hated it. Just play Dark Souls, at least everything has a face.

I’ve heard surprisingly good things. On my radar. I never expected to like a Terminator game (at least since the on-rails arcade shooter from 25 gears ago).

Only 13 hours to go. Tick tock. My wife and I play on Android.

I so want this to be good. Tired of sim/tycoon-in-name-only games.

“Where we’re going, we don’t need eyes to see.”

I almost bought (some version of) this on Switch… but it turns out it has nothing to do with the movie… or even Stephen Hawking.
