I'm like 3 hours into MGSV and Mad Max at this point. To my surprise, I'm really pulled into MGSV, since I've never been able to get into an MGS game in the past. Both games are a complete blast though, so it's always hard to choose which one I'm going to play when I sit down. At some point I need to stick with one til the end, and then go to the other one, haven't decided which game that will be though.

So this week both MGSV and Mad Max drop, pretty crazy. A lot of people have relegated Mad Max to the bargain bin already because of MGSV, but for me at least, MGS holds no sway. Meanwhile, I'm an old school Mad Max fan, and a fan of games that offer a quality post-apocalyptic experience in general, so this is the game I'm jumping into this week. Can't wait for the unlock tonight, and plan to stay up for at least 2-3 hours to play once it drops, work tomorrow be damned.

Who else is more excited for Max than Snake? Surely, I can't be the only one.

Clearly an homage to the great one.

Introducing this into the modding community of a game that is several years old seems like a bad idea from top to bottom. I have no doubt this is just a trial run for Fallout 4 and ES6, but there are thousands of Skyrim mods, a majority of which use components of other mods to function, so suddenly you're in a situation where a for-sale mod using content from another mod will no doubt result in personal claims, who built what, etc.

Also, Skyrim, and most Bethesda open world games in general, are a precarious tower of code that runs most of the time, but is made much more fragile by the installation of mods and what order they're installed in. When you give away those mods for free, you can wash your hands of potential issues, but the minute you slap a 99 cent sticker on your mod, you are expected to support and to continue support said mod and how it interacts with the Skyrim environment in coordination with any other number of mods in the process.

This is something that, at best, should have been introduced in as future Bethesda game, and I expect this will introduce months of bad press for both Valve and Bethesda, which is already in full force based on Reddit and Gaf posts.

If H1Z1's current state (which they're selling access to) is any indication, I'm thinking Sony made out better on this deal.

I played Daybreak tho, so the naming might be apt.

Makes sense for Patrick, who is a highly skilled writer whose talents likely get lost in the shuffle here on GB where most of the value is put in a/v based content.

Hope him the best, I do read Kotaku quite a bit, so I look forward to seeing his stuff.

Am I the only one that wants to hear her sing Lionel Richie's Dancing on the Ceiling?

Reviews aside, what I've heard from people playing the game, even offline, they love it, very reminiscent of PGR or NFS: Shift.

It sucks that the servers are having issues, they should have run like a weekend beta or something to gauge server load, but it is what it is at this point, and holding off on the free Plus version until they can resolve existing issues for paying customers is the right move, regardless of how much it might piss off people who want to try it out for free at this point.

I'm not even a big racing fan and have no intention of buying this, but stuff like this looks amazing and makes me kind of want to play it anyway. Hopefully they'll have things in hand by the weekend and can roll out the Plus version.

And yes, communication on this has sucked, as communication from Sony is always severely lacking. No defense for that, especially seeing their support reps continue to tell people the Plus version would be out "within the hour" last night over and over when clearly that wasn't the case.

This is sucky. Whatever the situation... sounds like DriveClub should of just been cancelled instead of delayed.

Diablo 3 on the PC was almost completely unusable for 2 days after launch, a lot of big games that have come out with a large online component have been, should they have cancelled Diablo 3?

Priced to fail.

I bet they sell hundreds.
