Nothing plays like Warframe and it'll potentially make all other shooters seem slow and bland.
The shooting is actually fantastic, the movement is beyond anything else, and it's stylish to boot.

Destiny can not compare - it's a completely different game. One that might put Warframe fans to sleep before you finish the droning tutorial. But hey, some might like the slower, controlled pace of Destiny. It's all good, enjoy your thing, Warframe is free and trying it won't hurt anyone - except maybe yourself and your spare time if you get super into it.

I'm kinda losing interest BUT, BUT, It's cool to see fans of this style of game so into it.
Capcom is releasing such quality lately which I'm stoked about.
It's not my style of game, I don't like this action type, so I wasn't expecting it to pull me in like the previous one did. Where I think the setting is what sold me on it - along with Noisia's OST.

My partner LOVES the "cheese" of DmC5, especially the reading poetry mid-battle to power up, so I can at least enjoy their enjoyment of it. I have to say though, the environments are kinda bland. But I guess it's not what you're supposed to focus on in this kind of game.

Those are very different games, as pointed out.

I LOVE Astroneer, ever since pre-alpha I've been dreaming along with the devs and have played
so many hours of 1.0+ with my partner.
BUT I can't speak for it as a solo game since a lot of what I enjoy is creating funny solutions
and sweet base layouts to shock and awe my partner - while they go out and haul back materials for me to research and mess with.
That's our general loop. Sometimes I make huge drills and burrow my way from one end of the planet to another.
You kinda end up creating your own fun. I don't know how long it would hold single player appeal.

As far as I know, Astroneer is limited to one galaxy, with 5 planets and 2 moons.
I don't know about their DLC plans, if any. If playing alone you will be alone, there's not
a single creature (afaik) wandering any of those planets besides you.

NMS has no limit to planets or creatures, so there's that. I tried really hard to get into it,
I try with every major update. It just never hooks me so I can't speak to its strengths or weaknesses.

I for one welcome the possibility of a streaming future.
I'd still like for physical or downloadable copies to be an alternative however.

If only to save the world from plastic, as in you're buying them away from somewhere to recycle them, then this is this a good idea.

Where's the high as a kite option?
But yeah I'm sober 99.5% of the time.

I pre-order games I want regardless of reviews or first impressions.
If they turn out bad, I get a refund. The last one that turned out bad was Fallout '76
and while it took them a while, I got a refund eventually.

I tend to "quit" companies until they make a game I like again.
I really didn't like ME3 and everything they've put out since, so it's been a while for Bioware.

As someone who suffers from crippling anxiety in other areas, I never had it for games.
A PC and a Switch to me is a fantastic combo that covers just about everything I could want from the wonderful world of gaming.
