    Siliconera is a good place to read about more obscure upcoming games.
    I don't think they do reviews, though.

    Syberia is currently free on GOG. Anyone interested at all in Adventure games should go claim it.

    So ACTIVISION is standing up against microtransactions?

    BLIZZARD activision, ya know, with card packs, loot boxes with voice clips, and the damn satisfying loot chest from Heroes of the storm.

    Not counting the classic rouletes, WoW and Diablo, where they started to design the elements of the random adiction.

    Love their content and all, and they aren't the worst offenders, but still, kettle.

    Government regulation of lootboxes is officially coming.

    Last week, Belgium's Gaming Commission announced that it had launched an investigation into whether the loot boxes available for purchase in games like Overwatch and Star Wars Battlefront 2 constitute a form of gambling. Today, VTM News reported that the ruling is in, and the answer is yes.

    The Google translation is a little sloppy, as usual, but the message is clear enough. "The mixing of money and addiction is gambling," the Gaming Commission declared. Belgium's Minister of Justice Koen Geens also weighed in, saying, "Mixing gambling and gaming, especially at a young age, is dangerous for the mental health of the child."


    Geens, according to the report, wants to ban in-game purchases outright (correction: if you don't know exactly what you're purchasing), and not just in Belgium: He said the process will take time, "because we have to go to Europe. We will certainly try to ban it."
    Hawaii is also investigating EA for predatory practices:

    If hearthstone and fire emblem heroes survive the transition to less gamble based economics, I'll be happy about it.

    I don't know if this is a good thing in the long run but I'm enjoying these types of practices finally getting shat on. It probably won't amount to any thing though and business will go on as usual.

    It's a good thing for consumers and the general public, but I'm sure higher-level producers will use it as a reason to justify pay cuts or lay-offs of lower level employees.

    Alternatively, someone somewhere is already trying to figure out or lobby a workaround with other governments and in the meantime Belgium and Hawaii are screwed out of localization and game availability.

    That's not certainly not how I remember the game.

    I played it for around 3 hours and quickly got tired of it. It's cute and all but there isn't really much to it other than customizing your campsite. I mean ... it IS Animal Crossing "Light" in a way but it is still not the same
    Although i put around 300 hours into New Leaf i'm just not motivated to play this.

    Also ... i'm playing Stardew Valley on the Switch right now which takes a lot of my free time. This game is really a perfect fit for a mobile device.

    This could be really bad for limited run games,

    so I was learning the cuphead speedrun and it was fun and awesome and...

    And then they patched the game last night, and removed pretty much everything speedrunners did. Weapon swap glitch is gone, some of the hitboxes for bosses when they were offscreen is gone.

    This is one of those cases where it kind of annoys me that they didn't look into what the speedrunners or what the community was doing before fucking them over. As devs they have to realize that a lot of these "glitches" made the game more interesting and fun for people who pursued skillful completion and did not interfere with the experience of people who play the game regularly and casually. It kinda killed the interest I had in running this game.

    I guess they decided to take some tips from Tecmo Koei.

    The A Hat in Time devs made it a point to leave in glitches in for speedrunners if it didn't affect the average play through. I think that's a good way to do things as glitches can be fun.

    It's just as a developer being told to "Nah, leave this broken thing here, is now a feature" when you have the will and means to fix it is counterintuitive, also it might be breaking something under the hood, like leaking memory like crazy and making the game unplayable in lower end machines if the glitch is done.

    The weird part is that they had the time to fix it, instead of something else or a new project.

    The Sonic Boom speedruns were way more entertaining before that first patch.
