I'm looking forward to Stalker 2, but with the devs being in Ukraine, that game could be on the back burner for a while. The initial Starfield teaser didn't do much for me though.

Same here! Looked more like the No Man's Sky level pack for Fallout 4.

Looks like Blade Runner Enhanced Edition is releasing tomorrow on all console platforms and Steam. Also Limited Run Games doing a run for physical Switch and PS4/PS5 versions with three editions. The Ultimate collector's edition looks packed as well. I'm seriously considering it even at $175 US.

Regular Edition Limited Run #466: Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition (PS4)
Collector's Edition Limited Run #466: Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition Collector's Edition (PS4)
Ultimate Collector's Edition Limited Run #466: Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition Ultimate Edition (PS4)

Also the Shadowrun Trilogy has released on all platforms today.

My Dad and I have timed out from playing this game to play Generation: Zero, mostly because we've already done all of the main missions for now (and waiting for the rest to become unlocked). And it's pretty good. Think of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, but in video game format.

Has anyone played Dying Light 2? I liked the first game, but I've read in the second game the enemies are pretty much damage sponges and you feel like you're wielding Nerf weapons.

I've got it but I haven't played it yet. In fact, it's just sitting here on my desk because I haven't gotten to it. Loved the first game so we'll see what I think of the second one.

When asked today about any Metal Gear remasters, remakes or related projects in the works, Japanese voice actress Kikuko Inoue who played The Boss in MGS3 replied "Be excited."

The Boss is one of my favorite characters. A spin off focused on her would be cool (with the Cobra unit as supporting cast). Need to have Kojima involvement though, dont trust Konami on their own with the IP (see Metal Gear Survive).

Some interesting news for fans of Final Fantasy VII Remake in this vid, including trilogy now being confirmed, story line changes to keep things fresh for FFVII veterans and news on the Crisis Core remake. PS5 is now the lead development platform due to the advantages of its SSD. Crisis Core will be released on all platforms, but FFVII Rebirth will be PS5 exclusive, presumably for a year or two period like Remake was.
Square Enix staff also interested in doing a Dirge of Cerberus remake, the Vincent side story, although nothing will be decided while staff is busy working on Rebirth, Crisis Core and Ever Crisis the FFVII classic Remaster for ios and android.

Thats interesting news. A remake a Dirge sounds really risky imo given that the original release did not sell too well and its reception was quite bad. Middling scores, even from Famitsu. Square Enix also has not had a good history with third person shooters developed in-house. Current SE also seems to be more risk adverse and likely would not want to move forward with a remake of a critically panned game. Could have been different if they kept Edios.

I always look forward to another installment of GTA..
Ever since GTA 4 they just knock it out the park!

I hope this time we get some real DLCs though and the game is not left half finished to focus on multiplayer. They would be stupid not to do multiplayer with all the money they raked in, but it was obvious a lot of locations in GTA 5 were meant for more. They were, just for multiplayer. For example they have that huge casino/race track and you don't do a thing with it in single player. I remember at one point the game said (maybe after the jewelry store heist?) that now more heists will be available and touting new crew members. It seemed like something they didn't finish.

I think the day of SP DLCs is over for Rockstar. Rockstar made an insane amount of money through GTA online and they are 100% going to want to recreate that with GTA6.

Their other game, Red Dead Redemption 2, could have used some single player DLC. Red Dead Online had basically been abandoned and RDR1’s zombies DLC was very well received. Given the hints of aliens in RDR2, a silly DLC around aliens would have gone over well with the fan base. But nothing.
