  • After scouring forums and recommendations for a decent PVE/story based co-op survival game I have purchased The Forest after first seeing it 5 years ago in early access. Looks to be the closest game to what I have been looking for that has an official co-op mode rather than a mod that is still deep in development like some others.
    Bungie has split from Activision & managed to retain the rights to the Destiny franchise, now let’s see what they can do with it away from their poisonous influence.

    @Dark Drakan, they can't. They merged together, so there's really no going back. "Blizzard Entertainment" could split off, but the actual company merged with Activision, making it theirs. There are two companies with "Activision Blizzard" on it, one is the holding company, one is the film company, and so, legally, it's hard to just split off from a company that owns the rights to the company.

    The agreement between Activision and Bungie was not an acquisition agreement, it was a partnership. Respawn at one point had this agreement, until EA fully acquired Respawn completely.

    I’m aware their situation is totally different, hence why I said if only they could “somehow”. A man can dream as Blizzard are being dragged down by them & only a matter of time before something has to give. So many bad business decisions since the merge & blizzard have gone downhill since.

    Booze & ongoing Steam Sale are not a good mix, bought Rimworld (even though it’s not on sale) & Two Point Hospital after sinking a collection of the many Christmas beers I got as gifts.
    We are aware there is an issue accessing the site at the moment, it is only accessible via proxy/VPN and support are working on it. So if the people who can get on the boards know anyone who can’t then pass word on that we are aware of it & if they use a VPN/proxy in meantime they will be able to get on.
    Good to see Petroglyph Games announcing another new strategy title for next year. Hope the C&C Remasters meet expectations whenever they launch and they recapture the nostalgia & hope the 'They Are Billions' style Conan strategy game is good.

    C&C was a nice chunk of my early gaming years. Excited about this but at the same time, if it's EA, it doesn't hurt to be wary.

    I’m wary of course but sounds like EA are publishing & Petroglyph (former Westwood Studios) are in charge of development. Fact that they are asking for fan input & seem to be ticking off a list of things we have been asking for the last 20 years is positive at least.
    Fantastic to see so many classic RTS titles being remastered, just hope this means there is a chance we will get some true sequels too. RTS genre finally looks like its making a re-emergence.
    Finally 8 years after credits rolled on RDR, RDR2 is out & I cant wait to get my hands on it. I can see this keeping me entertained for a LONG time.

    EDIT* Though been informed by my wife that we either eat or buy it so im now researching how long I can survive without food.
    Yee haw, yes siree Bob. That is one dang mighty fine looking avatar you’ve got there, partner!

    No problem, fella. I’m reckonin’ I ought’a give myself a RDR2 avatar myself when the game comes out. It certainly looks rootin’-tootin’ good.

    Going to consume my gaming life for some time I think.
    Going to be a long month waiting for Red Dead Redemption 2 and everything I have read so far is making that wait even harder. Havent even got round to getting God of War & Spiderman yet either.
    I don’t play Fortnite but it’s exciting to see all the platforms finally coming together so we can all share our hobby as one. Hope this is the start of a harmonious relationship between gamers when there are no barriers preventing you playing with friends regardless of platform
    Was awake at 5am this morning with kids, actually considered turning my PC on after I got them back to bed to fit in some gaming before I went to work. Who says you grow out of gaming as you get older...?
    Started again on No Mans Sky after new update released yesterday & actually really enjoyed it. Died 3 times in 1st 30mins due to extreme conditions on spawn planet but soon as I weathered the storm I managed to repair ship, upgrade gear, leave planet and build a base on new planet.

    "No Man's Sky" went the "Destiny" trail - everyone agreed it was absolute garbage at launch, but it got exponentially better with subsequent updates.

    The new update is closer to a full blown sequel than a typical update I have to admit, barely feels like im playing the same game I did before the updates started coming. Shame Destiny charged for most of the decent content, at least this has all been free updates and I have to say im impressed from such a small team. If game had launched as it is today it would have been highly praised at launch.

    Its launch was a total disaster and everyone knows the controversy that surrounded the game but they have managed to claw it back and finally the game is reaching its potential. It was announced FAR too early and should have stayed quietly in development for another few years. Im looking forward to what comes after this now and how far they can actually take it because im enjoying it as it is now.
    Any DMC Modders here that have any photoshop/other GFX Tools experience want to help out a fellow modder by name of @Dark Angel? If you are interested then send them a message & they will give you more details of the help they need. Thanks
