‘Don’t complain if there’s no sequel if you didn’t buy it full price’ says Days Gone developer

Days Gone director John Garvin has responded to the unraveling story about Days Gone 2.The writer and creative director of Days Gone took to David Gaffe’s podcast to state that players shouldn’t “complain if a game doesn’t get a sequel” if they didn’t buy it “at fucking full price”.“I do have an opinion on something that your audience may find of interest, and it might piss some of them off,” Garvin said on the podcast (thanks, VGC). “If you love a game, buy it at fucking full price. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen gamers say ‘yeah,…

Before Your Eyes dev creates a fake game to make a point about Steam refunds

A Before Your Eyes developer was done dirty by one of its players, and he feels there’s a point to be made.Before Your Eyes is an interesting narrative adventure game with a unique mechanic. The player controls what happens simply by blinking their eyes, which the game translates into input through a webcam.Watch on YouTubeThe debut game from Goodbyeworld Games came out last week, and has been very well received by Steam players – currently boasting an ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ rating based on over 500 reviews. Unfortunately, because it’s a short experience, it fell victim to Steam’s refund policy.Bela Messex, the…

Outriders’ inventory wipe bug is making players angry over losing everything

Outriders’ troubles with one of its biggest bugs may not be over.The Outriders launch has been a serious of problems. From server outages that lasted for two days, to bugs and constant crashes, to cross-play not working as advertised. It’s safe to say things could have gone smoother.Watch on YouTubeBut one particular problem that first reared its ugly head in the demo, has now returned, only its effects are exponentially more disastrous now. That being the inventory wipe bug, which is as dire as it sounds: taking away all of the player’s gear and weapons when it occurs and leaving…

But in between, we are definitely going to find time to play some games.That’s right: adulting the entire weekend be damned because there are orcs to slay, turnips to buy, bad guys to shoot, and a couple’s marriage to save.With that said, here’s what we’ve been playing and are planning to play this weekend.Watch…

4 reasons why you should give Outriders a chance

By Dorrani Williams 9 April 2021 13:54 GMT If you don’t like Outriders I understand why, but there’s good there if you look for it.Outriders gives you so many reasons to dislike it, especially in the opening hours. Honestly, it seems like for every good thing it does, it gives you three bad in return. This is not a good ratio to have but I gave it a chance anyway, and ended up liking the game more than I expected to.Watch on YouTubeI approached Outriders with the lowest expectations I’ve ever had while playing a new looter shooter, (let’s just…

Outriders is full of great ideas and strange decisions

When Outriders gets it right, it gets it really right. Flashing forward into a gawking group of goons, one swish of an Altered arm sizzles bones out of bodies with a bolt of blue lightning. Falling back out of the hail of bullets, I take a second to recharge and drop a defensive ability while my others are on cooldown, popping off a few longer-range shots which explode into a volley of fireworks on impact. This is Outriders at its frenetic best. High-intensity action combining flashy and powerful abilities with gung ho, trigger-happy enemies in a non-stop slugfest – but…

A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism review – a fun transport sim in need of better tutorials

The Switch’s entry in the A-Train series won’t be for everyone, but if you can push past its complexities, there’s much to enjoy.A-Train is one of those video game series that I wish had a more consistent path to localization. While over the years things like niche Japanese RPGs have gotten better at eventually surfacing with English-language versions, this little strategy simulation franchise has remained spotty at best.A-Train, or ‘Let’s Take the A-Train’ as its Japanese name actually translates, is basically a business simulation franchise in the vein of the finest PC efforts. It so fits into that definition, in…

Pokemon Go Egg Chart for April 2021: 2km, 5km, 7km, 10km and 12km strange eggs hatch list

One of the most reliable ways to get your hands on new Pokemon in Pokemon Go is through egg hatching. But what Pokemon can you expect from each type of eggs? In Pokemon Go, Pokemon Eggs are rewarded randomly to the player through visiting Pokestops throughout the world or being given gifts by your friends. Hatching eggs is a great way to farm candy and actually has a good chance of providing better Pokemon with better stats than you might find out in the wild. Some of the rarer, best Pokemon in Pokemon Go are most easily obtained through hatching…

The best Outriders tips that are actually helpful

Outriders is one of those games that can be easy to overlook. It’s another shooter RPG with numbers flying out of enemies as you shoot them, a big skill tree with passive boosts, and flashy active abilities – all in service of chasing ever powerful loot.We’ve done this song and dance before. Though Outriders is without question one of those, it also hides many systems and mechanics that it doesn’t always do a good job of explaining.To help you navigate People Can Fly’s deceptively deep game, we thought we’d highlight some of the more nuanced features in Outriders, and explain…
