Got both Valhalla and Immortals:Fenix Rising and I had a lot of fun in Fenix over the weekend. 

 

I have read all reviews and thought that I would like Valhalla better at it is less childish  - but no - apparently I like Zelda / I meant Fenix more. I only played Valhalla for 2 hours.

 

Some of the vaults are annoying but combat is pretty fun. I think I am about 10 hours in and plenty to do. And juvenile narration is kind of fun sometimes ;)

 

Was it worth buying both games at full price - not sure -  maybe not - but it is a decent Zelda replacement for the PC - and judging by previous Creeds - both games willl keep the price for a while.

 

Only regret - not buying for PS4 because I wanted better graphics and keyboard and mouse.  - however for PS4 I could have sold both games after I was done and while they still cost a lot.

I played Valhalla for 260hrs on PS5 and loved it, I also have Fenix and will try that after I've completed Control.

I got AC:V full price.  Was a fun game and still play a little now and then.  New DLC coming this month so looking forward to that.

 

Immortals:Fenix Rising is %50 off on XBOX now.  May grab that in a few.   Something to play in between DLCs for other games I am waiting for.

AC:V was/is fun.  I put about just as many hours into it. Maybe a little more.  Looking  forward to AC Japan.  I just enjoy the series.

I tried to play NBA 2k21 but I just couldn't, they've made these too much of a sim than what I grew up with.  I ditched it and started yakouza 3.

Started playing Immortals:Fenix Risin.  Fun game so far.  And like everything I read, feels like a combo of AC and BOTW.

Immortals:Fenix Rising was fun.  Got the available DLC and playing that now.  But the main game was fun, the commentary kinda funny, but some of the vaults were a PITA so I skipped over them.

Completed Arkham City over the weekend and picked up another game that I was part way through, Ace Combat 7.

 

It's amazing how much variety they can create for a fairly simple concept. Really enjoying the game so far.

I think I'm around 75% done with Yakuza 3, going to play the Evil Within after this before I swing back to Yakuza 4.  I think it's best to split it up and play something else and not do the whole series back to back.

I still play Quake Champions (almost) every day to blow off steam but I am sick and tired of all the cheating and Bethesda's refusal to deal with it.

hahaha - so true,   i cannot believe so many people buy early access - i tried it, and it is just not worth it, i would rather wait and see the final reviews, and then pay more.

 

same reason i stopped using Kickstarter, as originally it was 75% success, but now it is a freaking gamble. they final product is either delayed for years and by that time someone in china makes a similar version for much cheaper. or it is just not the product they originally described at all.

no more falling for this crap.

Finished the evil within, waiting for MS to put the sequel up on game pass at some point.  I was planning to play Yakuza 4 next but I kind of feel like something else, don't know yet.

I've tried this and that in that series but finally decided since I probably wasn't going to finish any of them anyway I'd just work on Kiwami 2 and go from there.

 

Outriders is pretty much excellent.  I wasn't really expecting a unique and polished property that feels influenced by so many things without being a copy of any of it.

 

After that...?  I have no idea, hoping XSX shipments start showing up in the US again sometime before 2025.  ;)

i still have ps4pro collecting dusk and i only did like 20% of that game before i stopped playing.  i stopped and could not get back to it after a few month break, so if i play again, i would have to start from scratch, because even after 4 months i forgot all controls and how to play - open world is very different from previous GOWs where i can start from any place at any time, and it just seemed to work.  gameplay is very different.

As are the mods, you can completely change the gameplay with mods!

I never tried mods at all - did not even think about it.  and i did the full game with both expansions twice - most time i EVER spent in the game since i was a teenager with patience and sega genesis - i think i spent 100s of hours on Sonic games - which i later beat in under 10 hours in my 30s LOL  - but as a kid i just could not beat the later levels.

 

anyways - what exactly do mods do?

I last played and completed the story in 2019 and I thought I would struggle with the controls but after 30mins or so it all fell into place and this morning I have managed to kill 5 of the 8 Valkyries which I found too hard before, maybe 60fps makes all the difference.

      Rainbow Six Siege is gaining crossplay and cross-progression support in waves
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      With Operation North Star on the horizon, Ubisoft dropped another piece of Rainbow Six Siege news at its Forward conference today, revealing that crossplay and cross-progression are finally coming to the 70 million players strong tactical shooter. The features won't be supported across all platforms but will roll out in waves to different clusters.

      The game is launching on the Google Stadia cloud gaming platform on June 30, and starting from that date, PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna players will all be in a single group of servers sharing queues and progression.

      Meanwhile, the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 players will be on a separate cross-play group entirely, likely to avoid the mouse and keyboard advantage PC players would have if they got in too. Unfortunately, this release is much further away, with Ubisoft planning to launch the capability in early 2022.

      The good news is that when this update rolls out next year, cross-progression will then be enabled across every platform, including PC, cloud, and consoles.

      Siege will be getting the new Operator, Thunderbird, Favela rework, and other major changes and fixes next week when the Operation North Star content update lands. The Rainbow Six franchise got expanded today at the Ubisoft Forward event as well, with the cooperative experience Extraction finally getting a full reveal and a release date.

      Riders Republic gets a September 2 release date, beta sign ups open
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The massively multiplayer extreme sports game Ubisoft announced last year before quickly being delayed, Riders Republic, got its first confirmed release date during the E3 Forward presentation by the company today. Players will now be able to go biking, skiing, snowboarding, wing suiting, and rocket wing suiting starting on September 2.

      Ubisoft also shared a deep dive trailer at the show, catch it below, that gives a look at the Riders Ridge social space for the first time. This is where players will be heading into for learning to do tricks, managing their career, showing off their in-game creations, and jumping into the various multiplayer modes available.

      Similar to Steep, another Ubisoft extreme sports game, Riders Republic throws together a large group of players — somewhere over 50, Ubisoft wasn't clear — into a massive environment made out of mashed together American National Parks like Bryce Canyon and Yosemite Valley. 6v6 tricks-focused matchups, a versus mode for racing amongst friends, and free for all races are also included alongside a single-player career mode.

      The mass races are only for new generation platforms and PC though, with older consoles getting around 20 players instead for their multisport races at maximum capacity.

      The cross-generational title is coming to PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, as well as Stadia and Amazon Luna. Those who can't wait until the September release can sign up to take part in the Riders Republic beta program by heading over here.

      Far Cry 6 DLC will let you play as the villains of previous games like Vaas
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Far Cry 6 still has a couple of months left in the oven before launching, but during the Ubisoft Forward presentation today, the game's very villainous season pass content was unveiled. The main antagonists of the series' three previous games get the spotlight in the DLC, where players will actually be jumping into their roles for the first time.

      Vaas from Far Cry 3, Pagan Min from Far Cry 4, and Joseph Seed Far Cry 5 are getting a DLC pack each that will "delve inside their minds to uncover their backstories, encounter familiar faces, and find out what it’s like to become the villain." Ubisoft has even brought back the original voice actors to expand on the content, letting fans take in the popular "meaning of insanity" quote one more time.

      Inside these twisted minds players will be going back to iconic locations from the previous games, and the longer they survive, the better their gear and perks get. Dying means starting the runs back over though, so it's a race to find all the pieces of the villain's psyche safely.

      Sweetening the package, Ubisoft is also throwing in the hit standalone expansion Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as a bonus for everyone who purchases the season pass.

      Far Cry 6 comes out on October 7 across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and Amazon Luna. Ubisoft also released a new trailer for the main game today focused on Giancarlo Esposito's character Antón Castillo, see it above.

      Ubisoft gives a first look at its Avatar game 'Frontiers of Pandora'
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Ubisoft announced Massive Entertainment is working on a AAA game based on James Cameron's Avatar movie back in 2017. After years of being silent, the mysterious game finally got its first reveal trailer today at the Ubisoft Forward E3 presentation, see it above. It also got a name attached to it now: Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

      While this is not actual gameplay, it is footage from the latest version of Massive's Snowdrop engine — the same one powering The Division — that is being used to develop the game. Through the trailer we get to see the lush jungles, various life forms, the Na’vi, and the familiar floating mountains of this bioluminescence-heavy alien planet.

      The title will be a first-person action-adventure experience that has players taking the role of a yet-to-be-named Na’vi. The game takes place in the Western Frontier, a never-before-seen region on the planet of Pandora where Avatar takes place. However, the storyline will be an original one that is separate from the movie universe.

      "Explore a living and reactive world inhabited by unique creatures and new characters and push back the formidable RDA forces that threaten it," says Ubisoft describing the setting. Massive is collaborating with Lightstorm Entertainment and Disney for the project's development.

      Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora launches sometime in 2022 and is officially skipping out on last-gen consoles. The title is coming out across PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5, as well as the game streaming platforms Stadia and Amazon Luna.

      Rainbow Six Extraction launches September 16, gameplay unveiled
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      After multiple delays and even a name change, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction finally got a full unveiling during the Ubisoft Forward E3 presentation. Both a cinematic trailer and seven minutes of gameplay footage dropped today, catch the former above and the latter below.

      The fully cooperative experience makes use of 18 Rainbow Six Siege Operators to contain an emerging alien threat named Archæans. The 12 maps in Extraction will feature procedurally generated challenges, and the further teams progress in each environment, the more difficult the incursion will get. However, all intel gathered during a mission will be lost if the team fails to extract safely, so it's a gamble to keep pushing forward. These elements should be familiar to fans of the indie title GTFO.

      Meanwhile, failing a mission can mean an Operator is listed as Missing in Action, removing them from the player's roster until a rescue mission, as depicted in the cinematic trailer, is thrown together to get the Operator back.

      Rainbow Six Extraction also received a new release date today: September 16. It is coming to PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Stadia. Ubisoft+ members will gain access to the game on day one. Cross-play and cross-save support will also be there across all platforms.
