  1. From the press release I understood that they were already working on it. "The acquisition brings a compelling pipeline of new installments from beloved franchises and original IPs, including a new Tomb Raider game." "Crystal Dynamics is actively working on several AAA projects, including the next mainline Tomb Raider game that will deliver next-generation storytelling and gameplay experiences." And here's the whole press release: https://embracer.com/release/embracer-group-enters-into-an-agreement-to-acquire-eidos-crystal-dynamics-and-square-enix-montreal-amongst-other-assets/
  2. And Crystal Dynamics is supposedly working on a new Tomb Raider game. I still have hope that new games will be developed in the "not so popular" franchises. If they are going to be satisfactory, who knows. I quite enjoyed the gameplay of Thief 4 but I didn't compare it to the older games and just saw it as a game on it's own.
  3. Arkane Studios is very good in this IMO. I'm playing Prey at the moment and it feels so satisfying to discover every nook and cranny of the space station and finding ways to get into locked off areas, even though most sections you don't really have to go to for the story. Dishonored another great example, although I think they did a better job in the first one than the second one.
  4. Not sure if this is good news for franchises such as Deus Ex and Thief as there's not much known about their intent yet, but apart from those franchises I'm hoping for a remake or complete new game in the Legacy of Kain series. https://www.reuters.com/technology/square-enix-sell-tomb-raider-swedens-embracer-2022-05-02/ Edit: oops, just saw jaxa's status update after posting this.
  5. A response by the developer to this question: "As far as I know, OpenGothic is a reimplementation of ZenGin engine. All mods that use any form of reverse enginnering won't work with OpenGothic, ReGoth and other projects. Probably there are plans to make it compatible somehow with some mods but I don't think our mod will be compatible as it features too many new changes to the engine code. Anyway, if any help is required to make it compatible, we will of course discuss it with OpenGothic developers!"
  6. No, you need the have Gothic 2 Gold Edition unfortunately. Gothic 2 is indeed a lot better than 3, like thebigh said. There's a huge mod for 3 though that makes it a lot better than the original, not sure if you played it with that one. Gothic games can be difficult though and 2 is probably less forgiving than 3 and this TC mod continues along that path. Some areas or monsters are not meant for low level characters.
  7. I think the story is 10 years before the one of the game, so apart from a few characters that you might or might not remember you don't need to know the story of the original game. There's also a DX11 mod that improves the visuals quite a bit and is supposedly compatible with this mod.
  8. In my younger years Gothic I and II were the best RPG's for me, along with Morrowind. At the end of last year a total conversion mod was released for Gothic II Gold. It's called The Chronicles Of Myrtana: Archolos and it was actually Mod of the year on MODDB. It features a completely new open world, improved skills systems, gameplay mechanics and complex story, and I think something like 30-40 hours of gameplay. I haven't tried it myself yet due to time issues, but I just wanted to share it here in case some people are interested. If anyone has played it, I would also love to hear their opinion (without spoilers ;)). https://www.moddb.com/mods/the-chronicles-of-myrtana

  10. I wonder if this is even allowed with the privacy laws in the EU. I know Google is an American company but if they want to operate in the EU they also have to comply with the laws there. I haven't lived in the EU for quite some time now, so I'm not really up to date about what is and isn't allowed, but as far as I know a company can only ask for an ID in very special cases.
  11. Yeah thought the same, maybe it's a bit exaggerated or otherwise very badly optimized. I think I read somewhere in the discussions on Steam that the camera system has been reworked and is now less janky. At the moment there also doesn't seem to be a save system during levels (9 levels in total). And indeed it's developed by one person in Unity.
  12. Seems quite interesting, maybe a bit rough around the edges. Available on Steam.

  14. I always wanted to play the old Resident Evil games (1-3) to relive the good old childhood memories, as I don't have the hardware to play the new ones and all the reboots are pretty bad or are missing a lot. Problem was compatibility with Windows 10 of course but found a rebirth patch that fixes that. For the patches you need the MediaKite (1) and SourceNext (2 and 3) versions of the games though and those can all be found on the internet archive. Edit: The Clue and The Sting by Neo Software were also very enjoyable games (burglary) and certainly worth a try if you haven't yet.
  15. Just a few quotes from the latest IPCC report Zerg about extreme weather. - Heat Waves: “It is virtually certain that there has been increases in the intensity and duration of heat waves and in the number of heat wave days at the global scale”. - Heavy precipitation: “the frequency and intensity of heavy precipitation have likely increased at the global scale over a majority of land regions with good observational coverage” - “However, heavier rainfall does not always lead to greater flooding.” - Flooding: “Confidence about peak flow trends over past decades on the global scale is low, but there are regions experiencing increases, including parts of Asia, southern South America, the northeast USA, northwestern Europe, and the Amazon, and regions experiencing decreases, including parts of the Mediterranean, Australia, Africa, and the southwestern USA.” - Flooding: “there is low confidence in the human influence on the changes in high river flows on the global scale” - Hydrological drought: “There is still limited evidence and thus low confidence in assessing these trends at the scale of single regions, with few exceptions” - Meteorological drought: “The regional evidence on attribution for single AR6 regions generally shows low confidence for a human contribution to observed trends in meteorological droughts at regional scale, with few exceptions” - Ecological and agricultural drought: “There is medium confidence that human influence has contributed to changes in agricultural and ecological droughts and has led to an increase in the overall affected land area” - Tropical cyclones: “There is low confidence in most reported long-term (multidecadal to centennial) trends in TC frequency- or intensity-based metrics” - Winter storms: “There is low confidence in observed recent changes in the total number of extratropical cyclones over both hemispheres. There is also low confidence in past-century trends in the number and intensity of the strongest extratropical cyclones over the Northern Hemisphere…” - Thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, lightning: “observational trends in tornadoes, hail, and lightning associated with severe convective storms are not robustly detected due to insufficient coverage of the long-term observations” - Extreme winds (between 60S and 60N): “the observed intensity of extreme winds is becoming less severe in the lower to mid-latitudes, while becoming more severe in higher latitudes poleward of 60 degrees (low confidence)” - Fire weather: “There is medium confidence that weather conditions that promote wildfires (fire weather) have become more probable in southern Europe, northern Eurasia, the US, and Australia over the last century” So although a lot of alarmist articles would like you to believe otherwise, it's really not that bad. Like I said before, I'm not denying climate change and I'm also not denying that we as humans play role in it, the data just doesn't support that our role is as big as they want us to believe. It's important to calm down a little bit and approach everything more realistically.
