Something just occurred to me when typing on the United page, surely if esports are ever going to become mainstream it’s now. It can be done virtually, whilst social distancing, and has no competition from sport as it’s all on the back burner.

Also seen today that they are going to run a virtual national be interesting to see how it’s received. Apparently red rum and tiger roll are going up against each other.

To be fair I think gaming in general has been progressively getting bigger ever since about 2008, but the professional eSports has been in decline or plateaued. It had it's peak back in about 2013/14 when League of Legends had that $25 million prize tournament.

Since then, streaming really caught on which has more or less put professional gaming on the back shelf. Players like Summit1g and Shroud bailed on professional gaming because it's more profitable to stream.

Plus there is the CSGO market place. Where people sell pixels(gun skins) for money, all because they have a unique pattern or whatever. You can make quite a huge profit on there if you know how to trade and when to buy/sell.

I think if you're talking purely about gaming then yes, this time in lockdown will give it a massive boost, which will likely lead to more people sticking around on it.

Professional eSports may get a slight boost, but it's pretty much just seen as a stepping stone to making it big on streaming.

THanks HSF, I’ll be honest I’d much prefer to watch the real thing but thanks for the insight into the industry.

Is it to late to restart from the last checkpoint?

Hope everyone is safe and well and has plenty of games to get through if you are having to self isolate.

Thank God for two new releases within 3 months. Doom Eternal(which is amazing by the way) and Command and Conquer remasters(C&C and Red Alert), which I am going to sink a monsterous amount of hours into.

I've already completed Doom Eternal on Ultra Violence difficulty and started on Nightmare tonight, which will probably take me quite a few sessions as the game play is so intense at times.

Command and Conquer comes out in June I think and the gameplay videos that came out, have been really impressive. Everything is just a slightly updated version of what it already was, enabling higher resolution graphics. However they have added a couple of new features, such as unit queuing (THANK YOU!), a Skirmish mode for the original C&C and all new sound tracks to go with the originals, including previously discarded tracks that didn't make the cut for the original release. There is apparently more to be announced, such as possible new units and bonus campaign missions.
My only worry is that it's got an EA label on it. I know it's not specifically made by EA, as it's being made by some of the original dev team from Westwood Studios, but EA like to interfere, set boundries, cut budgets, liquidate development teams and many more horrible things, so I am a little hesitent to go all in on it. I am at about 90% though...

So I brought A way out over the weekend, which is a co-op prison break game.

Best way to describe it is that the game is like a tell-tale game with a bit more action and more opportunities to roam, although not to the extent of an open world game. but enough to have you distracted by baseball or pull-ups.

The game play is about 6 hours, and that is to complete it with all the achievements so not the longest game in the world.

However the story is great and I love the concept, plus having a sofa co-op game was a nice change rather than needing to play co-op online. I hope it paves the way for similar games in the future.

It's probably fair to say the game is of a fairly low difficulty but the story is what carries it through. Don't want to say to much about the plot as it will spoil it.

But if your looking for a game to play with a friend that will have you disagreeing over decisions this is the game for you.

Cheers for that mate, I wasn’t sure about playing it but I am looking for a really good couch co op so I’ll keep it in mind.

You really do need to give it a go Ed001 I would start with zero as that’s the prequel to the original series. You can easily get distracted away from the main story as well by all the crazy sub stories and mini games.

Was it 6 you tried in beta? Trailers look good for it but waiting to have a free weekend before I go out and buy it.

I can second Lilbil on this, Yakuza is an incredible series. If I’m honest I only found the series last year and started with Yakuza 0 then onto the remastered Yakuza Kiwami. Zero is arguably the best game I have ever played.

I also cannot wait for the Shenmue remaster, just hope it does the game justice. The dreamcast is easily the most underated console in my opinion.
