    yeah, I'd be shocked if Arkane made something bad.
    Surprised to hear its a bit linear, maybe they will add a free-roam mode at some point.
    This might be the game that gets me to play online too, since that's the only way to play as Julianna it seems.

    Based on the leaks their next game looks like a looter shooter. That vampire vampire game they shower at E3. Too bad it will be Xbox only.

    It looks nice but most FPS don't really entice me. I did not like Dishonored at all - the style, story...just didn't hook me. To each their own.

    But someone described Deathloop as an escape room and THAT I am here for.

    Looking for opinions/thoughts from folks who have played:

    Assassins Creed: Valhalla
    Miles Morales
    Destiny 2

    Also, does FF7 Remake come to a satisfying resolution to this part where it’s worth playing? I never got through the original FF7, so the story past 25% is new to me kinda.

    I wholeheartedly recommend Miles Morales, I thought it was better than regular Spidey.
    Have not played the other ones, I know Destiny 2 is a major time-suck, and I've heard Valhalla is good but way too dense and can get repetitive.

    Destiny 2 is my favorite game but it’s very immersive if you want it to be. You can just play multiplayer PvP if you want or explore and do all kinds of other things.

    Valhalla is fun but I kinda just gave up on it as it becomes repetitive and I just didn’t have any desire to continue it.

    FF7 is amazing. I haven’t finished it but it’s great actually being able to fight and the levels have lots of puzzles and other things that make them great. It’ll be e next game I complete and I highly recommend it.

    Destiny 2 is great if you want to invest in it and find a group to play with. Solo it's just okay.

    Miles was a ton of fun.

    Valhalla is too long and gets very stale after a while.

    I think I’m getting Miles. I played the other Spider-Man on PSNow but it came off just when I needed like two stupid easy trophies to get the platinum and I was pissed. Amazing game though.

    Miles is good and probably worth it. Destiny 2 is a great on line shooter amd I love the way it plays, but it’s one of those game you need a crew to play with and play with often to get the full experience. As far as fluid shooters go it’s one of the best just game play.

    Final Fantasy 7 is probably the best game you mentioned, but I’m not into them, but if you are it’s probably amazing

    Weird bump and I’m sorry about this but this game never really existed, did it? Like I remember watching the weird reveal where Joseph Gordon-Levitt rolled out a media production company that was going to crowdsource elements of the game and I’m pretty sure none of it was ever real. It’s just too bizarre.

    If it was real, it was way too ambitious. They had like planet sized areas and what not and there was just no way they could ever achieve what they were trying to do.

    Thanks, Jeffrey Lebowski and TrustyPatches for stopping by the stream!
    Really like Deathloop but its taking some getting used to, and the pace of the story is slower than I was expecting.
    I played for almost 3 hours and there's still no mention of the central conceits of the game yet (stuff that was shown in the pre-release marketing, like killing the 8 psychos or the 24 hours of the loop, etc).
    I'm going to try to play again for a bit tonight, my numbers were crap but I know most folks are at work right now so I want to see if playing in the evening will make a difference.

    Kidding of course.. It’s a highly saturated market so I’m sure it’s tough to break into it. The guys that got in early and did well were fortunate. Also game videos that appeal to kids probably grows you quicker. Kids watch more YouTube gaming video stuff than actual tv and movies now.

    Yeah, I don’t watch those, but my kids do. If guys like DanTDm, Zach Scott and Kindly Keyon started now they probably wouldn’t make it. I don’t know who else is big, but that’s who my kids watch. Good for those guys to see the revenue potential and be savy enough to jump into the market early

    Yeah I'm sure it is very tough, I don't have an delusions of grandeur but it would be nice to make it sustainable, not as a full-time thing but as something that can justify me playing more games and maybe making a little bit of change.
    It's a puzzle trying to figure out what will attract viewers and what won't, the stuff you think people will tune in for (big conferences, brand new games, etc) don't always have that effect.
    I have a decent group of people from the rescue community that I think would support me, but I'm waiting until i get to affiliate and can take subscriptions to go down that road.
    And I'm lucky because BlazingRebel has been helping me a ton, what to do and what not to do, bringing viewers to my stream, etc.

    And because I have the rescue animal hook, I need to decide how much to focus on dogs and how much on games. I'm going to start putting my foster pups on camera during streams instead of my old ugly mug.

    Best thing of learned and also will continue to drill into your head is that "Viewers come for you not the gameplay. Your gameplay is just another tool to interact with your chat. If you are focused more on the game, not talking because you are concentrating or upset then people will leave. Just think of Twitch as a giant TV guide there are millions of channels and people will click next until they find something engaging or different."
