The story borrowed HEAVILY from the King novel "The Dark Half" anyway. Figured there'd be some sort of lawsuit but seems King was in on and ok with it.

King is well know to be really chill with this kind of thing. And with official adaptations. It's cool and shitty. We have had so many low quality movies.


The Halo Wars Formula Has Potential to Fit More Microsoft Franchises

Halo Wars is still widely considered one of the best and most accessible RTS games around, and that formula could work with other Microsoft IPs.

I think Crackdown would fit in a more turn-based tactics system via Xcom then a RTS type game play. Being able to customize multiple agents, deploying that group in an crime infested urban zone, going against other super powered enemy and fodder type thugs. The potential for that is huge if they won't do another successful, ground breaking, GOTY open world outing like Crackdown 3....

I could see that. I feel like State of Decay could spin-off into something strategic as well.

Actually that would be kind of fly if they made it a turn base RTS.


Like RemedyVerse, Gaming Needs More Shared Universes

Shared universes have taken movie fanfare up a notch. It's time gaming adapts to this element and makes mutual game worlds for popular IPs.

Or... you know.... compelling game play. Just because it's a shared universe, does not mean I'm going to enjoy it more. Look at the MCU. Most of it is hot garbage, with just a few stand out, actually entertaining entries.

Between NFTs, blockchain, MTXs, loot boxes, battle passes, slot machine mechanics, and gacha trash, it's a wonder that we even remember what games are supposed to be. Let's focus on creating games that people want to play. Control did very well for itself without being mentioned in the same sentence as Alan Wake, a game that almost no one played.

I think what RemedyVerse needed though, is less screwing with the customer on Pricing and Upgrades.
Oh Ultimate edition...

Was thinking how awesome it is that they've done this. I always found the idea interesting, and it also opens up possibilities to bring characters together or pull them into other worlds. I can imagine Control and Quantum Break coming together and Jesse being confused about Jack.
