SpellForce 2 weaves expansion magic

Going by the name SpellForce 2: Dragon Storm, the expansion doesn't break out of the RTS-RPG formula but does find players fighting for control of magic portals "which seem to be the only connection between the shattered islands of Eo ....

I wonder how the gamers in Tokyo feel after Phil's email came out about how much he'd like to buy Nintendo.

XiNatsuDragnel1d 3h ago

Nintendo is probably laughing rn since they're winning and doing amazing my friend XD.

Abriael1d 1h ago

I'm in Tokyo right now, and I can pretty much promise you that the vast majority of gamers in Tokyo don't give a flying F about that.

Jin_Sakai23h ago

Probably because the vast majority don’t even know about it.

Jin_Sakai44m ago(Edited 44m ago)

I’m sure they wouldn’t want Nintendo owned by a Western mega corporation that can’t even figure out what to do with their own gaming division.

Outside of places like this no one really cares that much. Anyone with some common sense knows it ain't happening. Nintendo's investors would never go for it, and regulators would never approve it. No console manufacturer will be able to buy another. Even if MS were to go software-only, with Bethesda and ABK they'd be way too big to allow that purchase.

The most we'll likely see is further collaboration between the two. Maybe a bespoke version of Game Pass to stream games that otherwise aren't available for purchase on Nintendo systems. Or maybe Nintendo will use Azure to revamp its online infrastructure.

Oh boy.

Here's a gem

"First, regarding PC Game Pass, since it is on the same PC platform as Steam, we believe that it provides users with a choice. The choice of which library to build is left to the user's discretion."

I've heard this term before from him..."build a library"

Only your comparing steam to gamepass. On gamepass once you stop paying your library is gone so not really a library like steam which you can always go bac, to play your purchases built over thr years, without paying a penny more.

Saying gamepass is a library implies this, but as we know, it's nothing like this.

Keep using this word 'library' sits wong with me.
It's a collection. A library in something you can reference and go back to to look at your dusty booka you loved as a child. With gamepass m$ can yank any title, at will and throw it in the bin,

No one would do that in my library.!

ApocalypseShadow1d 2h ago

Of course. With Phil it's 10 percent truth and 90 percent lie.

It's like you said, stop paying and you play nothing because with game pass, you own nothing. There's no library.

Only truth was that it's on PC and a choice between it and Steam.

You mean like how all Subscriptions work? You think you get to keep all those PSN+ games after you unsubscribe? Netflix Hulu, you still think you get to watch movies after unsubscribe?

"Only truth was that it's on PC and a choice between it and Steam."

Which is exactly what he just said and exactly what he meant. Congrats you read it but failed the comprehension (so close). Either have GP library or build it on PC or steam since games hit day one their.

Sonic18812h ago

5 percent truth and 95 percent lie. But Jim Ryan lies a lot too. They both can go imo

Lightning774h ago

Gee it's almost like Xbox games release on Steam day and date and ppl can build their xbox games library on Steam. A choice of which library to build. Either on GP in which yes you pay for or Steam a PC games platform where they pay full price for games.

That was easy another failed gotcha moment on your part.

purple1014h ago

Gamepass is not a library in the true honest sense though. That's why it sits wrong with me.. your steam library is a library though.. point still stands.

Lightning772h ago

Being concerned over what's a library and what's not in your own weird definition is weird thing to be "concerned" about.

You're just doing what you always do Complain just to complain about absolutely nothing at all.

purple1012h ago

Library definition

COMPUTING subsect:

"a collection of programs and software packages made generally available, often loaded and stored on disk for immediate use."

I have rented books from the library. GamePass is similar in that it is a rental service, no?

It is a library, you sound ridiculous

"No. That's not it. What we want to offer is choice. Xbox isn't just about Xbox Game Pass."

Yeh that's why you release a console with no disk, and now another one leaked

isarai18h ago

Not to mention he literally said if Gamepass number don't improve significantly by 2027 MS will pull out of the gaming business and dissolve XBOX all together.

Plague-Doctor271h ago

I think this is very unlikely even if they don't hit their targets, but them leaving would be terrible for the industry. Shame they are gambling everything on a very high risk subscription model

Destiny108021h ago(Edited 21h ago)

i don't know who should be more worried, after that pathetic leak, phil or the xbox fanboys

next year when xbox is releasing its all digital nightmare, sony will have somehow doubled the power of the PS5 and showing jaw dropping uncharted footage

XiNatsuDragnel21h ago

Sony is actually got ideas but xbox I'm not very sure.
