Call me a pervert or something, but I'm having a great time with Stranger of Paradise: FF Origin (XSX)

The game gets a lot of undeserved flak, which I think is due to two factors:
- extremely bad…

I've noticed a tendency that this crowdfunding business gets rather silly.

Six hours in Elden Ring (XSX), and I'm safe to say this game deserves the hype.
Very different yet very familiar to Dark Souls. The open world formula works like a charm with this game -- I have…

Hmmm, to avoid further confusion, how about changing from sci-fi / sci-fa, to sci-fi / fa-fi?
That is:
Science-fiction: any speculative literature that treats science seriously (Asimov, Clarke,…

Not particularly unexpected.
Practically ALL major software publishers suffer the same issue of how to migrate old IPs for the new generation.

This is much more challenging than it seems:

Hmmm, methinks these examples are not sci-fi, neither sci-fa per se -- these are good ol' adventure stories in an exotic setting.

I think I get the basic gist of the OP's rant.

Now this is weird.
For so many years of ignoring Warhammer games, I've bought WH40K: Mechanicus on the cheap for Switch and. . . praise the Omnissiah, this is a d*mn fine game!

Now this is interesting.
Spiders and Piranha Bytes are two developers I admire for their ambition and stubbornness (for better or worse), but my relationship with their games is shaky at best.

Now then. So many AAA releases, so much disappointment (you know who you are)
Therefore, a niche indie game is in order, and Nox Archaist (Apple2 - what?!) fits the bill nicely.

I am in cautious enthusiasm mode.
I really like Sherlock Holmes stories, and I really really like Frogwares' previous Testament of SH. Crimes & Punishments was also a noble effort.

BUT.

Ah, I see you are a man of (corporate) culture as well.

Yup, this is the cardinal sin (hence my remark on the early axe) - and the two mistakes mentioned are the supposed remedy for that.

This was kinda predictable.
What surprises me though, that Ubi spectacularly mishandled the whole situation: BGE2 should have been axed years ago.

They didn't, so the problem is that BGE2…

Yet another long-ish hiatus, but fortunately, not without some quality gaming time.

Okay, that does it. Tried out Cris Tales (XSX), but got so upset by it, I downloaded Outward (XSX, also on PC/PS) on rage. Go figure.

Not quite sure what to think. The original, while not being earth-shattering, was most certainly interesting (guess I am spoiled with quality Zelda games BG&E was so desperate to imitate)

Obviously, horses for courses.
Happened with my biz partners a few times, sorry. They were pre-evaluated either by a major publisher by Steam reception average or by Metacritic score average.

Problem is that such justice warrior review bombs often misfire.

Immediately preordered as soon as it was announced aeons ago .. . Btw, being a Bitmap Books release, you can buy it right now, as a digital pdf copy is also yours with the purchase.

Absolutely agree. Being a fan of Ys ("ees") VIII, IX seems to be a somewhat sad rehash of the previous game. Nearly everything that is good in IX is better in VIII in some ways.
