It's free on epic store today only. Might as well pick it up, even if you don't really like total war. Just start a new epic account and sell it or something. It's a $50 game.

No such thing as free, you are still giving epic something they value more than free game here and there. Probably selling them part of your actual soul in the fine print in the eula, and that helps some satanist executives cum harder, or at least contributing your pc to chinese government.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 Remake Announced for PS4, Xbox One, PC

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=JC8owhVU0cI

>Activision has announced Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2, a compilation remake of the first two THPS games developed by Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy studio Vicarious Visions, which has a long history with the series.THPS 1 and 2 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Game Store on September 4, 2020, with preorders offering fans early access to a demo of the iconic Warehouse level. The game is a remake compiling the first two games in the beloved THPS franchise, including all levels (even the secret ones), and IGN spoke with Vicarious Visions studio head Jen Oneal to learn more about what’s new and returning to THPS 1 and 2

>In addition to gameplay tweaks to make the skateboarding itself more modern, THPS 1 and 2 will mark the return of all the hallmark missions — collecting SKATE letters, secret tapes, etc. — from the original games, while also introducing some new challenges.

>THPS will support competitive online play, but the remake will also feature split screen multiplayer for those who want to play with friends locally.

>“Most of the songs made it into the game. There's only a small handful that we just couldn't get the licensing rights for. It's a pretty full soundtrack and you'll get to hear your favorites, like “Guerrilla Radio” is in there, “Superman,” which is kind of like the anthem of THPS, is in there,” she said.

I'm pretty stoked.

Only through their app I believe.

>Anything that provides exclusive in game shit that you can only get by buying other shit always feels scummy to me

Agreed but it depends on how you look at it but there's plenty of people that would want it. Burger King had done it with great success although PocketBike Racer, Big Bumpin, and Sneak King were all complete games that you could buy separately without having to buy their food.

>>755228
I pre-ordered the game this past week but I didn't get a code for the demo (I guess that's only for digital pre-orders or something) but when saw they were doing this promotion, I went for it cause I like Chipotle and the THPS series but this isn't anything new in gaming. One example I can remember is buying Crackdown when it came out just to play the Halo 3 multiplayer beta.

I kinda wish there was more actual content in the demo, but fuck it. Plays good, looks good, definitely bodes well for the full game, imo

Hope you're all ready for $70 to be the new normal. Surely this new premium means publishers will no longer need to aggressively monetize their games with season passes, gambling, and micto-transactions, right? RIGHT?

It is surprising that the standard retail price for games was 60 bucks for the 7th and 8th generations, which is almost 15 years now and now they finally decided this was the generation to make it $70. I remember 6th generation games were $50 though back then it was rare to see collector's editions of games though after Halo 2, they became more popular and the standard for big game releases that would allow to charge more than $60 for games. Even with having one price, there's now the added costs of DLC, microtransactions, season/battle passes, lootboxes, etc.

$70 is like the amount Nintendo used to charge for SNES and N64 games though that was due to the high production cost of cartridges. Given that the cost of development for games has been exponentially increasing, it makes sense to increase the cost of the games themselves.

Dev costs have increased, but so have sales.
The best selling SNES game that didn't come with a SNES was DK2, at 5 mil sold.
RDR2 sold 32 million copies, FIFA 18 and COD BLOPsII 24.

In any case, price isn't directly related to dev costs.
Do sequels that reuse assets, engine, design work, voice lines, etc cost less than the first edition?

Madden and FIFA sell for full price but have a yearly dev budget of about six bucks, 7-8 if the dev has to spend 10 minutes remembering how to import the new spreadsheet.

Are there any easy games to master? By easy learning moves and combos and strings.

I heard Doa6 and Sc6 will be easier to learn? Is that true?

Soul Calibur series is definitely a good "easy to learn, hard to master" but in a gentle way. For instance, Raphael can beat the AI just by mashing the Y or triangle button in many SC games. But then there's Nightmare, who has a not very challenging full combo that you can do right from the word "fight". Basically, SC is as difficult as the character you pick.

I remember when I couldn't afford games and they never went on sale. Now they go on sale and I end up collecting them. Back then I'd buy a title new play it to completion then move onto something else.

Does it count as a backlog if it's just a bunch of extra keys you've picked up from bundles? I've got over 1,100 games in my Steam library alone, and I doubt I'll even install 75% of them. Games I actually consciously purchase, I'll try to at least sink a couple of hours into to, but honestly if something is not immediately at least an 8/10, I'll fucking drop it and move on to something that is because the market is just stupidly saturated with too many excellent games to waste time on anything that's just "OK". Sorting by most recently purchased is generally how I work through my list.

the remaster is a remaster of the chronicle edition, and the maniax content is the dlc so it makes sense.

Also their original creative director Tim Longo, who was Halo 5's creative director, had left 343 last year so you can imagine the creative changes they would have to make that would impact its development. Halo Infinite not being a launch title is a big loss for the Xbox Series X launch. I'll probably end up just getting it a few months later like I did with the 360 and Xbone.

Since this is a cheapass gamer thread..

>any GZdoom users here play "Aliens Eradication"? (pic related)

I believe it was made by a veteran dev of all 3 avp games; combining his favorite elements of each into one kick ass Doom 2 mod. It utilizes sprites, textures, and sounds from Alien Trilogy on PS1 and AVP 1/2 on PC, as well as the iconic horror stings and ambient tracks from the films.

>8 large, multi-objective maps modeled after iconic locations from the films
>Can be played on any map/.wad, retaining its dark ambiance and new textures
>4 playable classes: Colonists have to escape alive and rescue others
>Mercenaries (Marines) have to obtain vital research and materials
>Yutani Operatives must collect live xeno samples and eliminate all witnesses
>and Combat Synths simply need to exterminate all Xenomorphs
>Features entire arsenal of weaponry from the films
>Encounter various xenos, dormant eggs, terrified colonists, roaming marines, and Yutani death squads; With random placements every playthrough.
>The entire Xenomorph life cycle can be seen in realtime by observing the NPCs interact: Egg hatches, facehugger impregnates human, chestburster erupts from host, and it quickly grows into a fully grown Xeno if not killed before scurrying away. Sometimes friendly NPCs will chestburst at random.
>Uses a BrutalDoom-based gore system; complete with attention paid the corrosive properties of Xenomorph acid and the trademark white color of Synthetic blood.

I played an older version of this not too long ago and loved it. Now it has a full release! You can get it here: https://www.moddb.com/mods/aliens-the-ultimate-doom/downloads/aliens-eradication
