All those bloody people in isolation with nothing better to do.

Pax Nova is going to officially release and the update it will get seems really juicy. Throughout the whole EA devs were improving game vastly with every update and they did a lot to change the game loop for the better. With the last two patches you can actually give a bunch of playthroughs to the game and enjoy them.

That being said, I can't really recommend buying it. I'm just really excited because I was a sucker and bought it way back when it got into early access.

They're remaking the original Mafia game - Definitive Edition - because that's what all the cool kids are doing.
No real trailer yet, but some nice images. Release 28. August.

They've also remade Mafia II, which still has no ending and looks about the same.
Also Mafia III, which is "only" 4 years old, and also looks about the same. Weird.

I loved Mafia 1 so much back in the day, I'll be looking forward to this one. I just hope they keep faithful to the original (i.e: speed limits and traffic lights attracting police attention, etc.)

I'll ignore the other 2.

The only thing I'm happy about when watching that video is that bands like Lagwagon can be introduced to kids today through this game.

I checked some reviews about Mafia II Definitive, and when I learned that the file size jumped from 8Gb to 32Gb I was stupefied. I'd give it a pass if the size increase would have been minor, but 32Gb for so little difference in LOD? Why even bother?
In my eyes, this is a big opportunity missed. I'd have loved to see all the games remastered with the same fidelity, like Mafia I is going to be quality-wise, but they just plainly botched everything.

Doubling a texture from 1K to 2K makes it take up 4 times as much disk space. If they just made the textures bigger (which is what most HD remasters do) then this is pretty understandable. Whether or not it even looks good is another question.

Shush, the ending is there and it is pretty great. I loved the subtlety and that it was not shown at all. Where they screwed it all was all that bringing Joe back crap in Mafia III. He should have stayed dead.

Well, Total War: Troy will be an Epic exclusive title and free to claim within the first 24 hours.

That was unexpected.

Oh boy that is actually somewhat tempting.
But they are going to drain everyones pokets with DLC anyway.
At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Achilles or Troy would be paid dlc.
I mean Chaos was also DLC when Total War Warhammer released. I am not a big fan of Warhammer but from my understanding everybody wanted to play as these evil guys.

[...], it’ll just be a year until it’s available on Steam.
Oh well, at least that makes sure I won't be tempted to buy the game anywhere near release.

Is there anything like the Steam Workshop on Epic, though? I wonder if there's gonna be as much mod support as there is for, say, Rome 2: TW.

A ****ton of money. They are giving their newest title away for free to every player who wants it during those first 24 hours.. It's crazy, really.

But hey, it's not a big Total War title, it's one of those "Saga" things. Apparently they're also working on Warhammer 3: TW.

Yeah, their core team is working on TW: Warhammer 3 for sure (and that's where most of their development budget goes). I think they have a relatively small team in Romania or something that works on the Saga games, but it still has their brand and all their marketing between now and TW: Warhammer 3 will be about Troy.
