Is there a reason why there isn't a Sony First-Party Studios OT like there used to be a couple of years ago? Because I'm thinking about of making one.
Please do. The console OT should be about firmware updates and features IMHO.

Since no one picked it up, I threw something together in 5 mins:


No shining GIFs this time as I am too lazy to bust out Photoshop for a Squeenix collection. :messenger_grinning_squinting:

Damn thats a loooong list - I'll update it after new ear. Been slacking on this. Might be easier to have an OP of titles releasing with names next to them.

Hi, Cornbread78 Cornbread78 - it's a bit too soon for many of the games on the list.

That said, I claim Fair Cry 6 and Bravely Default II. :messenger_spock:

Oh, I know, I used to make tons of OTs each month that fell through the cracks, lol. I might make a thread with oddson which of those games actually make it to release 2021, lol

Hi, is there any rule that could prevent me from doing an OT for a very old game? (It's an RTS called Populous: The Beginning, from 1998).

Uncharted is the easy choice. Ever since U2, it feels like they've tried to one-up themselves with bombast and it just feels exhausting. That's actually one of the main reasons I was disappointed in TLOU2, as it tried to ratchet up the bombast from the original which was a nice, grounded break from Naughty Dog's typical flare. Their puzzle mechanics were never good and the same could be said for the brain dead platforming and traversal. How many times can a handhold or platform collapse below me and still be exiting? While the combat has improved game over game, like most of the core mechanics, it's also-ran and done better by contemporary alternatives.

I think a discussion on tencent games buying up all game companies around the world as a bad thing for future creativity and diversity. Seems strange nobody brought up this chinese trojan horse yet.

The Ascent by Black Chamber (January 25th, 2021)

This game was supposed to be a launch title for the Xbox Series X; but it got pushed to 2021. The official release date should be revealed soon and it should release at the latest by May/June. It is 100% coming out this year and I will add the release date to this post when it is announced🤘💯

If you need some assets for your thread, hit me up

Is there a way to avoid the gaps between images (image to image, image to gif) when embedding them in vertical order?

Was wondering if we could get a dedicated thread to general gaming questions about anything gaming related that doesn’t really need is own thread. Otherwise sometimes a question thread about a particular question could get buried fast if there’s a lot of activity going on. For example I want to ask a specific question about fallout 4 modding on console but don’t see the point in making a thread about it - google hasn’t been much help either.

Well, I think that there's no harm in trying and seeing how that goes. The only issue would be whether and how to make sure that questions don't get buried.

Nobody has yet, IIRC. Feel free to claim it. Happy to assist you with assets if you need them.
I'll give it about a week to see if someone else does. If not, I can take it. I don't have any ideas yet on the structure but will put some thought into it this week.

Do we have a Steam/PC thread anywhere?

I might make one eventually. It would be a good place to discuss Steam games, deals and whatnot. Obviously if there is enough interest there.
