    Graveyard Keeper is similar to Stardew Valley because they are both clones of the same game: Harvest Moon. Which had crafting as a core mechanic - in 1996! It has been terribly abused by mobile farming sims et al, but I never played those. And Nintendo doesnt seem to care for the HM series anymore, going by the latest entries. Thats all I want to say in their defense, really - Stardew was not for everyone, either. I just love the pixel art and retro gameplay, and I think GK managed to top even Stardews 'one more day' feeling, as well as being better for a bunch of technical and aesthetical reasons.

    Edge #323 25th Anniversary Edition

    Im just curious why they put a switch pro pad and elite next to the Halo cover
  5. I dont think theyre going for 60 fps, its probably better framepacing / lower input lag at at more steady 30 fps which makes the difference

    Realm Royale (Hi-Rez)

    I didnt get a stupid beta key, so screw them Eurogamer reporting a rather sharp drop in the alpha playerbase https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-08-16-realm-royale-loses-94-per-cent-of-steam-player-base-in-two-months
  7. DLC announced to arrive on Aug 28! https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-08-16-warhammer-vermintide-2-announces-first-dlc-shadows-over-bogenhafen Not the most exciting trailer, but its only 12 days away!

    Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition Announced

    Isnt that what the mobile games, and other sideshow games are doing? I dont think that kind of game would sell to the audience that they want to reach - 6 mill +- or so I see it more as a kind of submission to the fact that to sell that much, you have to cater to the COD crowd.

    Yeah, contrary to what I said in my previous post, @mushashi may well be right in his projection. Pardon me. It wouldnt make sense for the ratio on xbox to be that much higher than on ps4, where 34 mill out of 80 mill are paying for PS+. If you assume sales of 40 mill +- xboxes, a similar ratio would give little bit less than 20 mill Gold subs. Sony and Microsoft are still far away from the monthly subs that Netflix pulls in, around 125 mill as of earlier this year. https://www.statista.com/statistics/250934/quarterly-number-of-netflix-streaming-subscribers-worldwide/ (2011-2018)

    I have no idea how you reached that conclusion, based on these numbers. For that to be a reality, the Windows, Mobile, and Nintendo Minecraft users of Xbox Live would have to account for more than 23 million MAUs (=the discrepancy between yearly PS+ and MAU Xbox Live). And even then, taking these other logins into account (whatever their number is), its still good business for Microsoft. https://www.windowscentral.com/xbox-live-hits-57-million-monthly-active-users-fy18-q4
