Rumours are that EA's PC Platform "Origin" is going to get shut down.

All EA games will be placed in the Steam Store, and this includes Origin's premium service "Origin Access". This will happen during 2020 in a gradual process.

I'm glad for this personally, I think Origin is an awful client, full of bugs and not well made. I did have concerns about Origin Access though, as I'm a subscriber and have paid the annual fee(£89.99).

{Ed001's Note - I am with you on Origin being awful. You can't even use controllers on a PC through Origin, which makes racing games pointless as you are unable to use a wheel. I really hope you are right and it does go on Steam.}

Well in terms of EA games going onto Steam, that's more than just rumours as EA have already started the process with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
According to Windows Central, FIFA, Battlefield V, The Sims 4, Unravel 2 and Apex Legends are all due to join steam this year.

{Ed001's Note - that would be much better, that Origin is a pain.}

So after more digging, it seems that Origin isn't going to get shut down, but almost converted into a game launcher. Similar to Rockstar Launcher.
I suppose that's better than keeping it as it is.

{Ed001's Note - seems pointless to me, those game launchers are just a pain.}

Surviving Mars:

Essentially a City Builder but on Mars and with some unique concepts. You have got the obvious things like you need to house everything in domes, but what I really like about the game, is you get these "events" which happen and this adds some really unique elements to the game. The events that occur usually lead to a unique series of break through technologies, all of which server different purposes. One of the events I had allowed me to bring earth-like traits to Martian born colonists via the education system, these would all be beneficial traits only.

You're also put up against 3 other rival colonies, these all have different levels of funding. You can interact with these colonies via trading, gifting, insulting or even colluding to eliminate another colony.

I did run into a couple of problems, a lot of my Geologists decided to stop working in the Geologists specific jobs, which left me running low on key resources such as Rare Metals, which you can either sell for extra funding or use to make electronics. Nothing too major but a little annoying.

Other than that the game is very well made, plays excellently and has a very mild learning curve. This is arguably the most polished game I've played recently.

Also, Frontier(Planet Coaster, Elite Dangerous, Jurassic World Evolution) have picked up the developers for this game and will be publishing their work from now on.

Yeah I enjoyed surviving Mars but my colonists seemed to keep getting infected with those spores even tho I had air purifiers etc

I've not come across that yet lol. I got to 100% terraformed and kind of stopped playing. I might try a new game with just 1 rocket of Earth colonists, see how long it takes me to get to 1000 population :D

Codemasters are rebooting the Grid franchise. Looking forward to this!

Grid racing game

Yeah could be good m8,the old grid games were great and codemasters usually nail racers


2.) 12 Jun 2019 19:27:08
The F1 games that Codies release are pretty solid, plus I was a pretty big fan of GRID and Autosport, so hopefully this new one is as good as those are.

{Ed001's Note - I do like the Grid games.}

Anyone looking forward to the new Doom game when it comes out?

I'm personally a big fan and very much looking forward to it.

1.) 15 Apr 2019 14:04:06
Yeah hsf I’m looking foward to it,loved the reboot from a few years ago


2.) 15 Apr 2019 15:05:19
I think it's great that they went back to their roots with the reboot, making it a fast paced shooter, with a few added extras like double jumping and weapon upgrades.
My only issue with it, was that it was a little easy, so hopefully it's harder to complete in the new one.


3.) 27 Apr 2019 14:06:56
Right, have to ask, doom is sitting on my desk to be played when I get a chance. How good is the mapmaker? I still gather friends over for time splitters 3 matches using custom maps and was hoping doom might be the next step. Any thoughts would be welcome

EA do this with every game these days. The sooner people stop buying and/or playing their games, the sooner EA either become defunct or change their ways.

I can't believe I forgot about Company of Heroes, that's a bloody fantastic game. And even 13 years after its release, the graphics still hold up pretty well.

Some really big name games missing from that list! Command and Conquer, Warcraft, Supreme Commander, Sins of a Solar Empire and Starcraft to name a few.

Also, Ed Dawn of War has 4 available factions, with the Orcs being the strongest of the lot. If you are strictly referring to the campaign then fair enough, but I personally would rank the expansion "Dark Crusade" above DoW, as it offers a much stronger campaign(you can play as all factions), as well as including new troops and vehicles, while also adding the mighty undead Necrons, as well as the technologically superior Tau Empire.

Just my opinion of course, it'd be very boring if we all had the same opinions.

{Ed001's Note - there is a lot missing and yes I meant the campaign.}
