Man the non-host multiplayer experience in this game sure seems rough. I didn't have a single notable issue in 70 hours of solo.

I've played about 40 hours solo and have had a few of the bugs they've encountered, but nowhere near this extent. Died a few times from glitching into the environment when exiting vehicles, but the most discouraging early on was probably losing my first large shredder (which I had just barely had enough resources to make) by having the packaged box fall through the ground and disappear when the printer stacked another box on top of it (the platform I was planning on placing it on).

The first 30 minutes are really incredible.

You joke about the game being set in Denmark, but what if it's set on Greenland? The US tried to buy it from Denmark last year - they could set it during an US invasion or some kind of CIA operation trying to fund a separatist movement or something.

Absolutely love this remaster. Of course sad that the video quality isn't great, but they put out some video explaining why that is. My only real issue with the remastered graphics is that the new water tiles don't repeat very well. The soundtrack is also missing one song, the NOD end theme song Destructible Times. Not sure why that is, since it was Frank Klepacki's band. Bummer anyway, since it was a great song.

It can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgfVqpxs4CI

Wait, that death counter says V-Bucks. Was that added with this "best of" video or did Giant Bomb predict the fortnite based economy?

I'm gonna be playing Sea of Thieves on Steam because the Windows store is simply terrible. But there's way more reasons why the Steam version is going to be better. It's not going to be UWP so it's going to be easier to tweak settings (I assume modding is not going to be a thing because it's a live game), using any kind of controller is going to be easier because you can just let Steam handle that. And chatting with friends is more convienent, because of the Steam overlay.

Certainly a choice (and a good one). But, I don't think those reasons are actually that much different, other than the store can have issues. Have you had any issues with controllers? I haven't on WinStore games. Which settings are you pining for? Most of the ones missing early on are there now. And chatting with friends (especially when it's run through Xbox Live, rather than Steam), is as simple as the Win+G game bar overlay. No more laggy than the Steam one (not saying much) lol.

I think it's great that it'll be on Steam, and I do think the experience will be better there for most. But also, have you tried the WinStore in a while? It's not as bad as you make it sound.

UWP apps are just flat out broken for a lot of people, on my previous PC I couldn't even get Windows Update to start, because they turned it into an UWP app in Windows 10 and they just flat out don't load on that PC. Jason and Jeff have mentioned the same issues - Jeff most recently being unable to install the Windows 10 UWP version of Minecraft, and it has been a commonly reported issue with Windows 10 ever since the beta days in 2014. While those apps thankfully work for me now, my understanding is that they're still widely broken for a lot of people, and given the experience I had with that stuff being broken (along with all my purchases from the GFWL days disappearing), I definitely will never trust the Windows store with any money.

Wow, sounds like Vice City Stories was the only properly assessed GTA game in the history of the series. It's definitely an 8, and by far my favorite in the series. It's kinda crazy how many perfect scores that franchise has gotten when most of those games didn't hold up at all just a few weeks after launch.

My favourite and most hype-inducing tech demo was Into the Shadows from the demo crew Triton.

Never came out though :(

Worth noting that Triton became Starbreeze, i.e. the Enclave, Riddick, The Darkness and Syndicate (the shooter spinoff) people!
