Hopefully one of those is Kingdoms of Amalur II. I've critiqued it heavily before, but the series deserves another spot.

jznrpg307d ago

A flawed game but I had fun running through it

neutralgamer1992307d ago

Kingdom of Amular 2

Saints row 1-2 HD remasters

Darksiders 4(all all 4 horsemen RPG, each horseman carrying their respective game mechanics)

0hMyGandhi307d ago

I haven't played the third Darksiders, have you? is it any good?

neutralgamer1992306d ago

It’s a much better game now after all updates. Definitely worth it

blackblades306d ago

I remember when they went bankrupted and had to sale some pieces. 20 games in development seems like over doing but of course I don't know how big they are now bit I do know they did buy alot of studios since there rough years.

Chriswheeler22306d ago

That was actually another company called THQ. This is THQ in name and IP

Demetrius306d ago (Edited 306d ago )

Saints row 1&2 not even on that list of so called games getting worked on I bet, they neglect them so much mane and knowing damn well they're fan favorites, smh

Charal306d ago

Overcharging? Have these people never heard of sales?

just_looken9h ago(Edited 9h ago)

"Valve, the owner of Steam, is being sued for £656m over claims it is abusing its dominant market position to overcharge players.

The collective action claim has been filed with the UK’s Competition Appeal Tribunal by digital rights campaigner Vicki Shotbolt.

In the lawsuit, Shotbolt accuses Valve of ‘shutting out’ competition when it comes to buying PC games and DLC, which has led to 14m people in the UK being overcharged for PC games as a result.

The claim is seeking up to £44 compensation for every UK player who has bought a PC game or add-on content from June 5, 2018."

So they are trying to take the apple/sony/xbox approach were there is only one store without ever using a pc for gaming.

Anyone with a ounce of pc gaming knowledge knows steam did nothing when competition and the launcher war happened but now every publisher that had there own launcher with games only available on that platform are slowing coming back to steam.

This "lawsuit" should be directed to launcher's like rockstar's as they have games only available on there like the gta collection or ubisoft with xdefiant heck epic launcher exclusive games. There is no grounds in which steam has locked down content to there platform except there own games though there are disc versions of those except half life alex.

Pc players still have the best choice on game buying with multiple launcher's and site that offers keys like my fav humble bundle but on the same platform we have the worst drm along with those 3rd part launcher's that need to run in the background.

How about suing them for the game files that the customer should own?

Goodguy018h ago

Steam allows 3rd party apps (which I hate) and...we all know that egs is the one that keeps buying exclusivity lol. A lot of devs and consumers rely on steam hence it's very heavy support.

paulust20026h ago

If I get 44 pound from them I'll only be spending it in the steam store...fucking absurd ..one of the most ethical companies out there and largely due to them not being a public offering imo

Why the gradual death of the console exclusive makes business sense

And why Lego Horizon Adventures is coming to Switch.

Depends really. Like for example I moved onto pc so sony is missing out on the thousands I spend on games where they take a cut in the walled garden while most casuals won't do what I did and they'll make money. So it all depends how many die hard spenders switch to pc or just stay with sony

Congrats on graduating to the platform that has the potential for offering the best HW and worst experience with fewer high quality games.

A great decision there, really!

"Worst and fewer", he brazenly says while going through a consistent drought half-way through his branded low frame upscale machine's lifecycle.

Crows901d 4h ago

Ummm....which titles will be miss out on?

jznrpg1d 4h ago

@Shiore2u there is no drought of games. I have so many games to play I can’t keep up. First party has been dry as they released most of them early in the gen but they are coming. Every company has a bit of a dry spell first party wise. Nintendo had a couple years with the Switch, Xbox had many years over the last decade. Sony is going to have some years better than others too.

"First party has been dry as they released most of them early in the gen but they are coming."
So consistent drought until announced games actually come into fruition. Keyword consistent.

But your one out of millions. You may have jumped, but consoles are still cheaper

abstractel1d 18h ago

Exclusives absolutely make sense. Nintendo, for an example, needs to keep exclusives to sell their consoles. So does Sony to a large extent. Xbox is just falling behind so much on the hardware front that they are trying a somewhat modified approach but they are still going to be producing exclusives if they are going to be producing new Xbox generations.

So far Sony has taken a good approach to PC, but so far the PS5 era hasn't been my favorite Sony era. Hasn't been bad, but not great. I hope that this is being rectified.

porkChop1d 16h ago (Edited 1d 16h ago )

I'm not disagreeing that exclusives are important, but I just want to point out that Nintendo is a special case. Nintendo needs their bread and butter exclusives because they don't have all the larger multiplatform games. For nearly two decades they've had slow, underpowered hardware that simply couldn't play the vast majority of 3rd party games.

So their fanbase has been conditioned to buy Nintendo hardware for pretty much only Nintendo's 1st party exclusives. If Nintendo were to start launching their games on PC very few would buy their hardware because Nintendo has nothing else to offer. They don't even have a competent, proper online network to satisfy the needs of online/competitive gamers. They also don't have a mature, built-up ecosystem to offer people like they do on PS, Xbox, Steam, etc. The only thing Nintendo can leverage is the fact that you need their hardware to play their games. That's it. It'll be interesting to see if that changes with the Switch 2.

generic-user-name1d 8h ago

Sick of seeing people make exceptions for Nintendo. As a PlayStation fan, I've been conditioned by Sony to buy their hardware for both strong 1st party exclusives and strong 3rd party support. Both can be done but Nintendo gets a pass for only doing one because they are the industry darlings.
