Wallet Threat Level

Wow, didn’t even know this was a thing. I recall enjoying the one, so this bears looking into.

This week is the first Red week for me in a while. Death Stranding, Ghosts of Tsushima, Paper Mario. I’m holding off on DS until I see how the port turns out and if it’s moddable, but the others are almost certainly day one.

My recent boards games kick has been keeping me away from sales and new releases. My wallet should be safe, but we shall see.

Early reports from places like RPS suggest the port is great. Dunno about mods though.

PC Gamer also confirmed it’s a good port a couple weeks back. Mods are still an open question, though.

FFS. The game’s been out for nearly a year.

Not for PC.

Game will be out tomorrow anyway, so there’s that.

Sure, but if they’re worried about spoilers, it’s a bit late for that. It’s a bonkers restriction.

I didnt think about modding at all. If a mod scene develops on the DS engine, that could really blow it wide open. There are a lot of possibilities there.

Avoid at all cost. Terrible, terrible piece of crap that’s got nothing to do with the other games.

July 16th also has a American Truck Simulator DLC coming out (Idaho).

Though I suppose I’ll be too busy delivering packages in a slightly different way, in what Tim Rogers called “the Gran Turismo of walking simulators”. Yeah. ;)

I was keen on Death Stranding, having skipped the PS4 in favour of PC, but it’s really expensive. Now I wait for sale!

Ghosts of Tsushima looks cool, we’ll see what reviews say in 12 hours.

Paper Mario I will probably get too, unless the reviews are bad.

Wow, GiantBomb talked about the Death Stranding review screenshot thing. It’s even more bonkers than PC Gamer made it sound. Seems to be tied into Valve promotional stuff, so it’s not just dumb, it’s ethically icky.

“As a special request from Kojima Productions and 505 Games we are asking everyone to please use the screenshots in the above link in numerical order and do not crop the images in any way or remove the legal lines at the bottoms.”

“Also feel free to review the game using the following 20 words”

FWIW, the PC Gamer review no longer contains that text, and does contain screenshots, which I think are the official ones. However the reviewer bio says:

Not sure if it said that before.

Carrion looks interesting this week (you play as a slowly growing nightmare of a monster). Not a wallet threat to me, technically, since it will be released on Game Pass Day 1. Any other big draws?

What a name. I had to look this up on Steam:

Good to see Epic Games branching out into new genres!

This was made by MinMax games, of Space Pirates And Zombies fame. I hope this is a hit.

Also, it’s out today… in Early Access, so keep that in mind.
