  1. The upcoming role-playing game, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, developed by Hardsuit Labs and published by Paradox Interactive, was initially scheduled to release in March of 2020. On their official blog, they have announced a change of plan, shifting their launch window to simply 2020. The blog post, written by Andy Kipling and Brian Mitsoda of Hardsuit Labs, details the team's reasoning for the delay, stating: The previous title in the series, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, was infamously launched in an "unfinished and buggy state" back in 2004, a release state attributed directly to rushed development by many key personnel of Troika Games. Even while plagued these issues, Bloodlines is considered a classic PC title. Hardsuit Labs delaying the title to avoid mistakes of the past is an appreciated move by the community. With the announcement of RTX support back in March, Bloodlines 2 is seemingly shaping up to be a beautiful game, and certainly a major graphical upgrade over the original. With any luck, this delay will help Bloodlines 2 trump its predecessor in every facet. Are you disappointed by the delay for Bloodlines 2? Will you be picking it up at launch?
  2. With less than two months until release, EA has finally revealed the system requirements for Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. The specs were posted on the game's Origin store page: While most of the specifications are fairly run of the mill for typical triple-A releases, many are shocked at the extremely high recommended system memory, a whopping 32 GB of RAM. Hours later, EA updated the specs, lowering the recommended memory to only 16GB of RAM. Ben Walke, Global Community Lead for EA released a tweet on the matter, simply stating: Neither EA nor Respawn has given a comment as to why the initial recommendation was 32GB of RAM, and how or why they were able to reduce it to only 16GB of RAM. Also, there is currently no information regarding what settings and/or frame rate these recommended specifications correlate with. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launches on November 15, 2019. Will you be picking this game up, regardless of the recommended specs?

    Doom Eternal delayed until March 2020

    At least Doom 64 is definitely getting a PC release.
  4. On September 17th, the High Court of Paris passed judgment over a legal battle between Valve, and a French consumer rights group known as UFC-Que Choisir. The court ruled that, (according to a translation by Windows Central), publishers and hosts of digital content must allow the reselling of digital copies of games on the Steam platform: While Valve intends to appeal this ruling, currently, they have three months to change their policy before being in violation of French law. While this would currently only impact Steam users in France, this can have ramifications for digital game services as a whole. If Valve's appeal fails, other services in France may be forced to follow suit in order to compete with Steam's newfound software freedom. Furthermore, these services may adopt this new business model in other territories in an attempt to reach a degree of parity. Still, until the case finishes development, only conjecture exists on the matter.
  5. Activision and Nvidia have announced their latest partnership will bundle the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with their GeForce RTX line of cards. The list of eligible GeForce cards for this promotion are as follows: RTX 2080 Ti RTX 2080 and 2080 Super RTX 2070 and 2070 Super RTX 2060 and 2060 Super Pre-built desktops and laptops including any of the aforementioned GPUs are also eligible for this promotion. With ray-tracing support announced in June, along with a shift to a new engine, the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise is seemingly pushing the envelope for graphical fidelity. For those who already own an RTX card, Modern Warfare will be entering beta testing on September 19th, allowing users to test the game and it's ray-tracing implementation, along with cross-platform multiplayer between Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. If you don't already own an RTX card, will this promotion sway you to make the leap? And will you be taking part in the Modern Warfare beta?
  6. Gearbox Software's Unreal Engine 4-powered Borderlands 3 has finally released on the Epic Games Store. To the chagrin of many of its players, the game's performance is seemingly lacking, with the game struggling to hit 60 frames per second on lower-end GPUs on Very Low settings (according to benchmarks from PC Gamer.) For those not running on high-end GPUs, how is the game performing for you? Has turning down settings provided an acceptable level of performance?
  7. Xbox Games Studios and The Coalition's latest entry in the Gears of War franchise, Gears 5, has been abruptly removed from Steam in China. On the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition's release date (days before the release of the normal edition), a developer from The Coalition released a post on the Steam forum stating: There has been no clarification as to what the "specific issue" is, nor any news on a Chinese release in the future. According to replies in announcement thread, users had the ability to pre-purchase the title. No news has been disclosed regarding refund options for these users.
  8. I think circumventing a developer/publisher's monetization plans makes it a grey area. In a case like this, I can see it being more acceptable since the developer/publisher have no intention of ever releasing the content on the platform.
  9. Steam is finally getting a major interface overhaul, announced to enter a public beta period on September 17th. The library's new look will provide a new way to browse your collection and it's categories, along with viewing the activity of friends as well as recent news pertaining to titles in your library. More news regarding the beta will be released on the Steam blog in the coming days. Will you be taking part in the beta? Do you prefer the current design of the Steam library?
  10. With the phasing out of Adobe Flash slowly on the horizon, many classic Flash-based games would be seemingly lost to the ether. However, the latest project by Leaning Technologies may change this. Their current project, CheerpX, is a new software designed to run unmodified x86 binaries in the browser in WebAssembly. Alessandro Pignotti, founder of Leaning Technology, went into detail regarding the project on Medium. He specifically states in the post: The post further shows progress of the project, showing that certain simple Flash content has successfully rendered through CheerpX. While the developers are currently starting through the rendering of Flash applications, the post also states: This is certainly an ambitious project. Are you interested in seeing this project's future developments? Are there any Flash games in particular that you want to see preserved for the years to come?
  11. Unfold Games, developer of the recently released DARQ, had initially planned to release the title on Steam. During development, Unfold was approached by Epic Games, who wanted to make an exclusivity deal along with funding for the production. As DARQ was already listed on Steam for many months, Unfold elected to decline the deal. DARQ eventually launched on Steam, and DRM-free on GOG.com. In the weeks that followed, Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games praised the success of DARQ and its sales numbers on Twitter. In response, Unfold Games issued a challenge of sorts to Sweeney stating: Currently, neither Sweeney nor Epic Games have provided a response. Do you think Epic Games will be willing to change their policy for this situation?
  12. EA and Bioware's Star Wars-themed MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic initially launched in 2011. Today, Bioware announced the title will be receiving it's latest expansion pack, entitled Onslaught, on October 22nd. While the expansion was originally given a release window of September, the delay was attributed to a need for more balance testing with the senior producer of The Old Republic, Keith Kanneg stating: The Onslaught expansion adds a new Flashpoint dungeon, a new raid, two new planets, a new playable race, and an increase in level cap to 75. Are you still playing The Old Republic? Will you be jumping on and/or returning for the new expansion on launch day?
  13. Halo: The Master Chief Collection has begun it’s latest testing, for Halo: Reach’s Firefight mode. Unlike the previous test, this test had a much wider sample size, with invites being sent to “roughly 10,000 registered Halo Insiders." This flighting test also missed it's initially announced launch window, with the plan for it to launch near the end of July. While a month late, players are still excited, and enjoying the current test, with many video content creators providing loads of footage. While The Master Chief Collection's PC release was announced back in March, with the amount of testing still occurring, as well as the planned modular launch order of Halo: Reach, Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4, it seems the full collection is still far off from it's final release. Even with delays, are you still excited for The Master Chief Collection releasing on PC? Also, did you make it into the current flighting phase? Footage of Halo: Reach's Firefight mode
  14. Initially announced in September 2012, TaleWorlds Entertainment's Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, has finally received a sort of release window. While not outright releasing, the title will finally enter early access through Steam in March 2020. This will be over seven years after the initial announcement, and eight years after the previous release in the Mount & Blade franchise. Still, the Steam page went live in 2016. In 2017, TaleWorlds Entertainment began posting weekly blog posts detailing Bannerlord's development, so the development team was certainly not silent in regards to their work over the years. Are you still excited to for Bannerlord after the long wait? If so, will you be picking the game up when it enters its Early Access period? The announcement trailer can be viewed here:
  15. Idea Factory's latest JRPG title, Dragon Star Varnir, will finally be releasing for PC on October 9th, after a month delay. While pricing has not been announced, Idea Factory has stated that game will launch in a bundle with a Deluxe Pack (a collection of art, wallpapers, and soundtrack) with a 10% launch discount, while Deluxe Pack will also be available separately for the launch week at a 20% discount. The Steam store page can be viewed here.
