Another VTM game is coming, neat. Cheers again eonden
I gotta say that I called a new VTM game coming, because during the PDXCon video they mentioned VTM and Bloodlines 2 separately.

My guess was a VTM:Bloodlines 1 remake / remaster (with the "unofficial" patch), but hey. I got it half right! You can call me now a Nintendo level leaker.

Quest is really good. Not drop dead fantastic like Dig 2 and Heist imo, but like those games it's very well designed and tightly tuned and polished. Had I known the Steam release would be this close behind Switch, I would've gotten it on PC to better appreciate the art and have m&kb control.

Also first twitter impression of Druidstone:

Alright. The culprit was not the Windows Store, but the Xbox App (and its error 0x406).

When a game is launched for the first time, there is a pop-up window and the user is asked to let the game access his Xbox account details. If this window does not appear, then the game either crashes or is stuck on the main screen.

The fix involved:
  1. starting the Powershell as Administrator,
  2. fixing the Xbox App using the command line.
I have executed the following line (found on a blog), which took a long time to complete:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
However, I guess this line (found on Reddit) would have done the trick faster:
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxApp | Remove-AppxPackage
Every time I subscribe to Game Pass, there is an issue like this. I don't know if others managed to play in the end, I guess not.

Saying no to EGS exclusivity is becoming a cheap way to garner positive buzz.
I mean, the last handful of random comments on their Fig thing were talking about it, so it's only natural to want to stop being asked about it.

Though given they are owned by Microsoft now the answer should have been pretty obvious at the very least it wasn't going to be EGS exclusive.

It’s an unconventional approach to indie development, but then his latest project, Supraland, is an unconventional game—part puzzler, part point-and-click, part first-person shooter, all set in a Metroidvania version of a child’s sandbox. Münnich says he had zero expectations before last month’s release because "nobody cared about it" during Early Access. "I would’ve been happy if I got 2,000 people to buy it," he says. Now, it’s approaching 50,000 sales, and 96% of its 1,100 Steam reviews are positive.

Epic is sponsoring the show and promising to reveal “brand new material for several games” and “some exclusives coming to the Epic Game Store. ” PC Gamer editor-in-chief Evan Lahti (the magazine/website organizes the event) promises it will be the biggest show yet

How is Rise to Ruins?

I've begun to take an interest into Colony/Factory Building/Simulation management sort of games like Slime Rancher, Rimworld, Factorio, and Satisfactory, and I was wondering how that game compares?

Damn i kinda like RDR Online. It is much more different than GTA Online. More story focused missions and interesting characters, slower gameplay, more grounded world... I think that i will play it a lot if/when RDR2 comes to PC because i am not paying for PS+.

PC gaming show has never been interesting (the whole thing started with a freaking wine glass of Mountain Dew). Let Epic fart away their money if they want.

What's the point of ignoring stuff if Steam will show it to me anyway D:
You can only ignore 100 publishers/curators anyway. Once you hit that limit it just starts bugging out.

So it's even more useless (not that ignoring them ever did anything to stop all the hentai spam anyway).

Doubt it'll make much difference; wasn't the rumour that the game was pre-selling on PC really poorly and so that's why they went back to Steam?
Yeah, Bethesda store is a failure.

The game just looks boring to everyone. Nobody cared.
