I've never played Rage 1 or Bulletstorm. So far I enjoyed playing Rage 2. For 20.98usd, deluxe+500coins, I think it is worth it. Easy to follow basic storyline, not superb graphics pretty standard, not skill demanding. Just like Terminator Resistance, mediocre in a good way.

I'm playing on normal, the enemies hit hard but they are kinda dumb just standing there in the open. The only reason you will get into a state of danger low hp is if you are farming 100headshots with your boomerang trophy. Hiding behind cover while your boomerang is returning to you, will hit the wall and count as 1 expended.

Their cs rep helped me unlink the purchasing psn account from bethesda account. Told me deluxe content and rage coins are tied to the purchasing psn account. So I think it should work fine on my main account. At least from the ingame store, dlcs are shown as purchased. Unlink will wipe progress, bonus contents for certain titles. Notable ones are deluxe edition for Doom Eternal and FO76 membership, FO4/Skyrim mods. Doesn't matter to me though FO4 I can restart, not far into that game. Skyrim haven't even started playing.

Wa u contacted bethesda support? I compared Rage 1 with Rage 2 and the 2nd one struck me as a Borderlands wannabe.

Yea no choice, that's the only way to unlink. Yup it's like borderlands without the levelling up system and various class to choose from but I don't think it is a bad thing. At least I spent more time playing it than Tsushima. Maybe later give Sushi another try. It's fine and it's pretty. Sometimes I wish I could look at a mini map rather than agaration the wind direction and I got AC fatigue :lol:

Yeah open world fatigue is real, but I understand GoT is more lenient than most, no need to collect 100% etc but part of the issue lies with the player and the need to plat.

Hope it gets better and not what I've read on reddit "gets even more boring towards the end".

Have to be careful with online comments good or bad, but esp bad. There's no way to know if these people are just xbots saying negative things just to chip away at sony ponies' dominance. Esp when it's largely unsubstantiated comments with no specifics.

So XSX announced for S$699 and its smaller cousin XSS S$459. So PS5 should be in S$849 range??

I didn't know this until now, both PS5 and XSX run AMD's RDNA2 GPU, but while PS5 has 36 CUs, XSX will have 52 CUs, so in short alot more GPU raw power.

The PC grade version of RDNA2 is called Big Navi, and has 72 CUs.

Did m$ announced Singapore pricing? I doubt Sony will price ps5 higher than xsx unless they wanna repeat the ps3 mistake. But this time, they might not have a chance to bounce back.

Ps5 secret sauce is on the ssd storage. But then again, I'm not interested in this on paper talk. I'll wanna see the real thing in action.

MS bought Zenimax which owns Bethesda. Xbox follows up with a statement that Bethesda games will be on non-Xbox platforms on a case by case basis.

I'm surprised m$ would spend 7.5 billions for this purchase. Especially for the Xbox division. I wonder how many years it will take them to earn back the money if they are gonna made these games unavailable on non Xbox platforms. I believe this is just like Minecraft, you see it being exclusive at all after all these years?

Personally though, Heng ah, I don't even play any bugthesda games. Their games just don't interest me. The only game which I tried was the evil within and I stopped after an hour.

The purchase buys Zenimax, which includes Bethesda but also includes other studios. This move is no different from say Sony buying Insomiac, except MS bought a whole slew of companies by buying the parent company. IIRC Zenimax also has a publishing arm.

Wiki says these companies are under Zenimax:

Alpha Dog Games
Arkane Studios
Bethesda Softworks
id Software
MachineGames
Roundhouse Studios
Tango Gameworks
ZeniMax Online Studios

Arkane, Machine, Id & Bethesda are the bigger buys here. Arkane is also doing Deathloop exclusive to PS5, while Tango is doing Ghostwire also a PS5 exclusive.

This move is going towards MS wanting to be the Netflix of videogames. It makes sense, instead of paying companies to host on Gamepass, just buy the studios. And MS has over US$100b in cash reserves so $7.5 is nothing to MS.
