Two Point Studios (Two Point Hospital developer) has joined SEGA, more games are on the way
10 May 2019 at 8:00 am UTC

liamdaweYes, so they've joined them. It's still correct

As correct as "Man dies in police-involved shooting", when a cop kills someone. The way something is phrased colors the contents, directs how you want the audience to feel about the news. It's not about correctness per se, but about which spin you're giving it.

By mirroring the phrasing of the press release, you're being, in my opinion, far too generous towards SEGA and far too positive towards bigger companies consolidating their power by eating smaller companies in general. I mean, we might disagree on that point here, in that you think these things are good, but I'm hoping you're at least aware of it.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire gets one final patch to consider it complete

I feel like a fool for starting it in earnest during the christmas holidays, thinking it was finished then.

Seems like I need to restart from the top again. Not that I currently have any time for that, but...

Can we please stop with this "x joined y" euphemism? Why are we repeating PR speech? State it plain and simple: they've been bought.

bidinouI guess they use ScummVM ?

I wouldn't think so

Gloomhaven, the dungeon-crawling adaptation of the board game should see Linux support at release

A colleague of mine at work has been telling me how great the board game is. I probably won't get the people together to ever regularily play it (and since I already have three pen & paper roleplaying groups + one irregular Legends of Andor group, I'm not exactly "always free" either), so I'm looking forward to this adapation.

stretch611I'm still not going to get Dream Daddy.

Why? It's a good game.

It's cute, it's got some real heart (the relationship to your daughter, for example, is a part of the story). And yes, a good selection of diverse guys and their kids to get to know.

Seriously, it's a nice comfort game for a lazy Sunday or somesuch.

Need a little something for Valentine's Day? Arcade Spirits is a pretty good choice

The writing is by Stefan Gagne (aka Twoflower), who some might know from his days writing several Neverwinter Nights modules.

He's also put out other works of fiction on the web for ages. Some of which I've read and really enjoyed, back in the day. His other stuff is on my to-read list, which is...well, unfortunately huge.

20 keys for EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1, but the soundtrack for Cultist Simulator is not included :/

The war of the PC stores is getting ugly, as Metro Exodus becomes a timed Epic Store exclusive

Frankly, I don't think Epic wants to better the situation, they just want to be the ones benefiting instead of Valve.

I said it before: I think exclusivity is fundamentally bad. That goes for availability and stores just as it goes for platforms, operating systems and architectures. What we need is radical portability and availability.
