Apparently people still play Starsiege: Tribes. So I hopped on and played for a few rounds.
The Nether Update brings the heat to an already fiery dimension with new biomes, mobs, and blocks. Discover Netherite, a powerful new material that makes diamond look like cobblestone. Beware the Piglins as you either trade blows or strike a deal. Avoid the hideous Hoglins, or hunt them for a snouty snack. Explore the Nether Wastes, search the Soulsand Valleys, traverse the Basalt Deltas, or venture into the Crimson and Warped Forests. But don’t forget to craft a respawn anchor. You know, just in case. It’s not like you’re going to get knocked into lava, or have a heated argument when bartering with a Piglin. Not at aaall… *breaks into evil, maniacal laughter*

A new Cyberpunk 2077 trailer is out. It has been a while since we have seen the game, and it still looks amazing. Apparently all of the footage in the trailer is from the prologue of the game, so that’s pretty cool.
The game was delayed until November 19th, but I am fine with that. It gives me more time to build a new PC before this game comes out.
Resident Evil 3 should have been $20 worth of DLC for Resident Evil 2 instead of pretending to be a full priced $60 game. It’s a 4 or 5 hour linear experience with little replay value. It doesn’t take good advantage of its Racoon City setting and it completely squanders the potential for engaging and emergent cat and mouse gameplay with Nemesis.
The whole thing feels rushed and unambitious. Its just entirely too short, and it doesn’t make good on the fantastic opportunities they had to do something special with the series. We get a glimpse of that potential in the game’s opening act, before being pulled back into rudimentary level design and an over emphasis on combat and scripted sequences. The asking price is way too high, wait for a sale before you buy.
