Not a scoop, Guardians of the Galaxy is really more an adventure game than an RPG. But here are some details:

Just how deep are the RPG elements in the Guardians of the Galaxy game? Here’s what the developers say

Well who's surprised? Raise your hand if you are…no one did.

How I wish Eidos Montreal would make another Deus Ex.

A little comparison. This game had a lot of remasters/remakes!

loading…

In this video I compare the latest version of Myst with the original game from 1993 and the other remasters/remakes. The current Myst version was exclusively available for Oculus VR systems in December 2020, now it has been released for other VR systems and can also be played without VR. Myst 2020/2021 uses the Unreal engine, while the last remake from 2014 ("realMyst Masterpiece Edition") uses the Unity engine, so again an interesting comparison. I look particularly at the graphics, sound and movement styles in the following five games: Myst (1993), Myst Masterpiece Edition (1999), realMyst (2000), realMyst Masterpiece Edition (2014) and Myst (2020/2021). Which version do you like best?

Nod, I played them at launch and haven't been back since, looks like most of the updated versions happened when I was deep in my mmo-hell. I'll likely just pick up the newest ones at some point, assuming they don't require windows thirty or some silly high end computer specs.

I always thought it was curious how many times that game has been remade. I mean, it's not like they're changing the puzzles.

Beats me. It must have a huge fan base. Or it's a case they teach at gaming school

It certainly was popular at launch, I've no idea what it might garner these days. I missed all the remakes yet I vividly recall getting my greedy mitts on copies at my local Babbages back in the day.

Has any of you played Life is Strange? What sort of audience does it target?

I've a friend that lives in Calgary that really loved this game, yet she said I'd likely not care for it, as it's more of a movie than something you actively perform combat/exploration in.

Nope sorry only game I will play from Dontnod Entertainment was Vampyr.

You should give that game a try.

There was once a parody game called "Pyst". I don't remember much about it anymore, though.

I played it. Loved it. Audience.. uh… well, no idea. In retrospect it reminded me a lot of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, so if you liked one you'll probably like the other. Life is Strange has lots of "Slice of Life" in it. You play as a highschool girl and hang around with your friend Chloe a lot, with cool, unique gameplay mechanics and a compelling mystery story. Even though the way the game and story works is a bit out there, what I liked most about the game is the down-to-earth attitude and friendship of the two protagonists. Basically the whole experience felt very, pardon the pun, lifelike. Good vibes.

A little preview of Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality, with a 5-minute gameplay. There's a gameplay reveal trailer too. Looks fun.

It's an action/adventure/exploration game that is released on October 14th. (Steam page)

I never got into Doctor who, although I read that it is hugely popular in GB … Would this adventure game help me understand the series ?

If the exploration factor is paramount in the game, that Doctor Who offering could be great. Make it similar to a detective tale and you'll likely hook a bunch of old-school Whovians into your realm.
