Tried to tell y'all it was real lol. Stop sleeping on my man Jeff, when he's got a source, he's got a source. Timing was off but the remaster is and was very much real, clearly 😂


 
 

Giant kudos to Jeremy Jayne and Noclip for making this (spoiler filled) video. I wasn't able to get into the gameplay of Signalis but I thought the narrative was really interesting. Glad that I can have a bit of second hand appreciation for what it did

 
 

SUCCESS! Dead Space is fixed after a bit of fuckery. Putting a minor PSA for folks in the replies below if you'd like to avoid the potential game breaking crash issues I was dealing with


 
 

So Dead Space is broke. Game crashed during Chapter 10 and won't boot back into the game. Every time I try it crashes during one of the opening studio/title logos. Tried erasing local saves, wiping cache, and a full reinstall. Nothing. Super cool stuff!

 
 

I'm sorry what?? Also, thank you Chris, et al for getting images working again 🙏


 
 

Absolutely lost it at them ditching the MGS-style radio to just project the characters face on screen during a call a la Dead Space. I expected the UI and controls to conform to OG Dead Space like the other REmakes did, but this was too much 😂

 
 

For whatever reason (speculate away, folks) Microsoft sent a statement to Gematsu saying the 360 store isn't shutting down in May, as had been reported. The previously circulated list of games being delisted this month is still happening tho

 
 

Sifting through the depths of delisted Xbox.com content so I can spend $30 on already-overpriced Left 4 Dead DLC before it disappears. I would almost rather be price gouged on 2nd hand game carts at this point


 
 

Welp. That's the last we're seeing of Halo this generation, I guess


 
 

I tried to tell folks this wasn't gonna be the thing that finally pushed VR gaming beyond a niche audience. It just ain't happenin 🤷‍♂️


 
 

Dead Space DF analysis dropped. John's loving it as much as I have so far. My 2 biggest concerns -- Issac's new voice acting and the zero-g changes -- are not only not bad, but they're actually *good*. Like better than the original somehow lol

 
 

Finally watched the TLOU premiere. Wildly exceeded what I could have hoped for. Wow. That is how you fucking adapt a video game. Needs to be the blueprint for how this is handled going forward. 5/5


 
 

Xbox Series X purchased 👍 Kinda wild that I got it from Newegg (no 3rd party seller) w/ free shipping + 2 days sooner than in store pickup at the local Best Buy I woulda needed to walk to anyway lol. Dead Space here I come!! 😃


 
 

I know we disagree on here sometimes, but there's one thing I figure we're on the same page about: these people are nuts 😂


 
 

My Uncle Eric, who introduced me to PC gaming and first person shooters w/ Half Life, just dug up this ~24 y/o drawing I made of the alien grunt from the first time I ever saw the game and y'all I am dead 😂😂🤣


 
 

Seeing the side by sides of how misleading the Forspoken sizzle reels were and was reminded of this. Things were better when you actually had to fucking play a game live in front of people. These "direct" streams are killing the industry.

 
 

Starting a GoFundMe to offer free therapy to every anime and game dev in Japan. Because jesus christ, who on Earth thought this was okay to release? Multiple times??


 
 

Halo Infinite currently outside the top 20 most played list on Xbox. With the layoffs to the 343 campaign team my expectation is that we don't see this franchise again until next generation. What an absolute disaster this is.


 
 

Well now we know why they've primarily stuck to cinematic trailers. This Avengers ass UI is a big yikes. With WB's cost cutting spree, their gaming division is prob on the block if this and Hogwarts Legacy don't perform. Not looking great atm


 
 

Relieved to see that even for a next/current gen exclusive w/ ray tracing there's still a 60 FPS mode available. Hope this remains the standard for the gen -- idc about pushing more polygons, just scope your games right, devs 🤷‍♂️


 
 

Sony Stop Filling Plus With Game Pass Leftovers Challenge (impossible)


 
 

PSA: Back 4 Blood Ultimate Edition is at a new all time low $30 (70% off) on PS4/PS5. The latest expansion (included w/ the UE) is out and it's a fucking blast. Criminally underrated game, if you missed it at launch


 
 

PSA, mostly for the younger Dtoid folks who didn't live through the 360 or PS2 launches and impulsively never stand their consoles up vertically


 
 

My new year's resolution is to convince myself that, no, jumping back into that old save file will not be too hard, don't start over or drop it entirely, you'll be grateful you toughed it out and finished something from your backlog!


 
 

I've been saying this for 2 years but people are still convinced that Bloomberg just fabricated that entire story 😂


 
 

Thoughts? My votes would be Ratchet 2 or Vice City. Both classics that would benefit not just from modern visuals, but modern mechanics.


 
 

High on Life is number 2 on Steam (behind Steam Deck), number 2 on Windows Store (behind Solitare), number 1 on Game Pass, and number 3 on Xbox (behind 2 F2P MP titles). Even if this game ain't your thing, it's hard to understate what a success it's been


 
 

This tracks. There is very clearly a type of game that I got to PlayStation for 😂


 
 

So I played High on Life. Man, this is a really fucking stupid video game.... I love it!


 
 

With just a couple of exceptions, 2022 was a pretty disappointing year for me when it came to new releases. Just the first couple months of next year are looking substantially better. What are you all looking forward to?


 
 

About ctg867one of us since 2:47 AM on 11.29.2013

I'm an (aging) dude who plays games and comments about stuff. Been on Dtoid since 2010-ish, back during the Jim Sterling days, though this account's a bit newer than that. Don't post on the FP anymore but you can find me on Qtoid and the Cblogs.

I also stream on Twitch sometimes, if you're interested:
