So Obsidian, one of the best RPG-centric game studios, released The Outer Worlds a few weeks ago.  I've been meaning to make a post about it for awhile.

 

 

I love the writing and quirky humor in the game.  This is pretty much what this studio is known for.  I'm enjoying the game when I get those few moments to disappear into it. 

And it's worth pointing out that if you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($10 per month), this game is included on it for box Xbox and PC.  New subscribers can sign up for a $1.  talk about value!  Anyway, well worth buying it too.

I haven't played the game yet (hoping to find it on sale on Steam next weekend...) but I've heard great things. And today I found this amazing song this guy wrote based on it, and it's my new favourite song, I've been listening to it on repeat all day. Made me want to play the game even more. Miracle of Sound makes a whole bunch of awesome songs based on video games. The devs should pay him, it's great advertising. :P

But do you get to keep it if you cancel game pass?

What's that? lol.

The value for me too high to cancel it.  It rather depends on how you do stuff too.

The Outer Worlds has one of the best LGBT storylines I've seen in video games. And it's also just a gorgeous game!

      I always love playing video games that offer the player the ability to make their own decisions like the customization of their character’s appearance and skills. I especially love it when that choosability extends to romancing different characters. The best example I can think of right now is the video-game series called Mass Effect. I loved romancing Kaiden Alenko during the third game, and a fun fact is the face model for this character is an openly gay man. It’s a shame the player couldn’t romance him in the first game of trilogy if they played as a male Shepard. Rumors have been spreading that a remastered version of the trilogy is in the works. If that’s true, I hope they allow male Shepard to romance Kaiden at the very beginning because there is direct evidence that shows Kaiden and another character Ashley Williams could’ve been romanced regardless of Shepard’s gender.
      I’m really looking forward to playing Cyberpunk 2077 when it’s released on November. From what I watched and read, the game will allow players to romance characters of the same gender. You’re even allowed to choose who your character hookups with at the beginning of the game haha. I’m in desperate need for a video game that allows the player to have an in-depth, gay romance since other games that have this feature that I’ve played didn’t satisfy my romantic itch. Mass Effect as well as the Dragon Age series are great examples of romance done right, with other games like Fallout 4 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey feeling like it was more of an afterthought than an integral part of the game.
      Do you know of any video-game romances that you remembered and loved, particularly in the LGBT department?

      So one of Microsoft's oldest living franchise, Microsoft Flight Simulator, released a new version today.  And can I just say... whoa.
      When I save I live in NY, people always assume this:

      But the city is small rancid pimple on the State of New York.  Here's a shot, from 6600 feet up, about halfway between home and where I went to school.

      So much farm country.  And that huge body of water on the top of the picture is Lake Ontario.  The visuals in this game (at this distance) are crazy insane.  They don't look as good when you try to zoom.. but for flight... it looks like you are looking out of  plane window.
      It's included in Game Pass.  Game Pass is $1 for 30 days to try out.  Just saying.

      I'm definitely liking the interaction between the characters.
      And I know Rocksteady has been doing great with games. (Batman Arkham series)

      This trailer looks interesting.
      The gameplay looks pretty nice.  They didn't tag platforms on this, which is a bit suspicious.  They better not make it exclusive somewhere...

      Wow!  This is coming to all systems in 2021.
