    Why would anyone want to spoiler a whole game for themselves? Beyond me.

    Busy day for Cohh tomorrow then , he is streaming Destiny 2 tomorrow as well.

    It amazes me how many people sit and watch him play right the way through games, A LOT of people (really into the thousands and thousands) watched him play Divinity 2 right the way through, all 100 odd hours of it. I watch him quite a bit to get the gist of games to see if they are ones I want to buy but I wouldnt watch a playthrough because I want to experience the games myself. I suppose though if someone is short of money or only half wants a game then its a good way for them to "play" the game through whilst having others to enjoy it with, without having to buy it themselves.

    He said he wont be playing Destiny 2 straight away, but he probably be playing Wolfenstein all day tomorrow and most likely on Wednesday as well. ELEX will be put on hold for a couple days as well.

    I was on the fence for ELEX when I first found out about it although I did like the look of it all. Now after having seen him playing it I be getting it one day. But I am a slow player and by the time I get around to play it (I am playing the first Dishonored now and then be playing the DLC's and the rest of the series) I will have forgot most of what he is doing now. So for me, it's good fun having it running on one screen while I am doing other things on my main. *shruggs* I just posted the above if other was on the fences and wanted a peek to see if the game was for them or not.

    It won't be, the Steam sale starts the day before it's released.

    Steam sale is steam sale. Their PR would be crap not to include in the sale in the next day. That said, I don't expect any huge discount on it, best odds that it have it's launch discount at 5%-15% or anything around that.

    Just a few days to find out. :D

    I'd be buying this now from CDKeys for £27.99 - if past trends are anything to go by, then the game will go up in price after it's release before it comes down again. The Evil Within 2 being the only exception to this I can recall, it being a few quid cheaper now than it was to pre-order.

    Still haven't completed the new order, got all the way to the final boss but couldn't figure out how to kill him so gonna play through again. Then finally play old blood before getting collosus.

    That's good to know.

    Vulkan
    When we started development of Wolfenstein II, the choice of graphics API for PC was a simple one. DOOM had already set the stage for what could be done with Vulkan and we wanted to take it to the next level.

    Apparently some people enjoy watching other people play a game instead of playing themselves, don't think I'll ever understand. :)

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is an electric veg-o-matic of FPS gaming bits and pieces set thrown into the hopper :p and set for puree. It lacks some stuff that we’re sort of gotten used to seeing in our FPS games these days and adds, a thousand collectable widgets aside, not much that we haven’t seen elsewhere before. :)

    They'd already be running a pre-order offer if that were the case. Publishers want to drive pre-orders, so dropping the price either the day before or the day of release doesn't make much sense.

    I missed the £25 price the last two times so paid the £28. Love the Wolfenstein games so can't wait for this one!

    I'm probably in the minority here, but I have no desire to play linear shooters in this day and age. Perhaps I've been spoiled by games like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, which despite their comparatively smaller budgets, have more atmosphere and substance than all of the recent Wolfenstein games put together.

    I hope Cyberpunk 2077 and Metro Exodus will bring something new to the table. Time will tell!

    It's either this or AC Origins for me. I can't decide between the two.

    Wolfenstein would be a no brainer for me between the two. But then I do find the AC games a bit repetitive...
