I'm getting worried about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. Looking at the absolute mess that Far Cry 6 is, I'm seeing just how bad things can get if the devs decide to make S.T.A.L.K.E.R. into a normie game.

I can see why everyone says the naval battles in Rome 2 are bad. Eight of the cheapest missile ships probably shouldn't be able to steamroll a half stack army and its reinforcements.

Played a few hours of Let's Build a Zoo so far and it's pretty fun. It's basically a more silly and relaxed version of Planet Zoo. You have control over so many things like the kind of foods your animals eat and there's a morality system that further complicates what kind of buildings you can and can't unlock. My only complaint is that there is no sandbox mode. You have no choice but to play the game and unlock every little thing before you can build the ideal zoo you want. You don't have access to every animal right off the bat either. New animals have to be obtained through constant trading of other animals you have immediate access to.

Fortnite shutting down in China feels really strange. Epic is half-owned by Tencent, and they can't even do business there under the new Chinese legal regime.

Eugh. I'm fine with sandboxes requiring you to unlock the best shit legitimately first (kind of dumb but I'm fine with it) but none at all? In a -builder game? Misstep.

How old is it, anyway? If it's new then it might be something that's in the pipeline.

Oh, for sure. It can't really be denied that the games Bethesda makes are mechanically a lot of fun. I'll tear apart their bad choices all day but, importantly, I only care because the product isn't entirely shit. It's half shit, half gold. That's why the shitty parts bother me; they're stinking up the gold.

Speaking of Todd (and moving on to what I came here to say), they're releasing an anniversary edition of Skyrim. Whether it's the anniversary of the 10 year old original release or the five year old special edition, I don't know. Apparently it comes bundled with all the creation club content, though, which is something like 80 mini-dlcs. While the re-re-re-re-release thing certainly gets tiresome I have to acknowledge that that's actually a decent offering for a re-release so long as they don't jack the price up to $90 or something. Also it apparently offers some new fishing mechanic complete with aquariums and wall mounts for your catches, and I'm admittedly a sucker for a good fishing game. And they're actually porting a few things back, which is a nice gesture.
