Why are you so negative about every damn thing? Along comes a game that doesn't focus on (or even have) combat, something you supposedly want more of, and your first instinct is to shit on it.

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader - Theodora Von Valancius: Of Power And GloryHow does it feel to have our games running on the Steam Deck? We cornered Swen and asked him! We never did get that Steam Deck back.
It is a rare breed of human that dares to leave the confines of Imperial territory and brave the still-uncharted void of the galaxy. Unwavering courage, devious cunning, even outright recklessness – all of these traits and more help ensure the survival and prosperity of those who are granted a Warrant of Trade and vested with a mission to roam the unknown depths of the void in search of profit and plunder. They are Rogue Traders, unique individuals empowered by the Emperor’s authority to serve Humanity in the most unorthodox way possible – by crossing the boundaries of the Imperium and committing deeds otherwise considered heretical.
For my part, I don't really know any cliches about Bavarians, and I definitely don't know any about 16th century Bavarians. I just think it sounds like an interesting and different setting for a narrative.

Jumping Back Into Neverwinter Is Giving Me My D&D Fix Again - MMORPGSabotage Studio made an excellent debut with its action platformer, The Messenger. It's now turned its attention to turn-based RPGs, sticking with its neo-retro tendencies to bring us Sea of Stars, set in the same universe as its first title. While the game has yet to be officially confirmed for PlayStation platforms, we can't help but be excited watch this Sea of Stars trailer to get a taste.
Jumping back into the world of Neverwinter has thus far been a delight. While I wish we could freely explore the city of Neverwinter proper, Protector's Enclave is such a bustling hub that it feels like a fully alive city in its own right. From there, I jumped headlong into the quests in the nearby graveyard, eager to learn more of the ropes and build up my rogue-ish chops.

Oktoberfest, eating sausage and leather trousers called Lederhose
Oktoberfest started in the 17th century so that is out but I think there is a better than average chance of the other two being in the game, especially the pants since this is Josh we are talking about

Is Gothic Worth Playing Today? Behind ScheduleTalking about the upcoming BG3 Patch 8 announcement on top of the recent developments on their Divinity Original Sin Board Game Kickstarter.
There are patient gamers who want to know if old or classic games are worth a play today or if they were "good for their time." Behind Schedule covers games I've never played before and reviews them for modern games. Folks who loved these games back then can still love them. I want to know if they're actually fun. Usually they are… at least in some way or for specific players.
Starfield Revealed A Procedurally Generated Walking SimulatorThe new second trailer for upcoming JRPG Monochrome Mobius: Rights and Wrongs Forgotten, with fresh gameplay details and story hints.
Ubisoft Games Ending Online Services - UbisoftAfter years of hype, speculation and waiting, finally the gaslighting has arrived. Starfield is coming out next year apparently, and so far it looks like No Mans Sky crossed with a woke walking simulator. I will let you be the judge. Just make sure to wait a few weeks after launch before buying it.
7 Changes To Make Dragon Age: Origins Go From Good To Great - TheGamerClosing the online services for some older games allows us to focus our resources on delivering great experiences for players who are playing newer or more popular titles.
To help us achieve this, a number of older titles will be added to our list of decommissioned online services on 1 September 2022.
Below you will find a detailed breakdown for the effects of this new round of decommissions per platform.
Released at a time when PC RPGs were at their peak, Dragon Age Origins arrived with a bundle of dated mechanics as compared to other games that launched in 2009. Its lack of a jump button, open exploration, and additional customization showed its age as a product of 2007. Borderlands, Demon's Souls, and even Final Fantasy 13 (all released in the same year) included these features and more.
That said, the series has still garnered a massive cult following, finding its place among the most popular RPGs in gaming history. Origins may be heavily flawed, but it is fun regardless. These flaws, however, could be smoothed over by implementing and altering a few key things.
I'd say both EA and Ubisoft are the same, As both are large publishers who want to maximize profits at any cost, and both shut down online service for older games.OK Ubisoft, you don't wanna support multiplayer modes and/or online features forever because of server costs, maintenance etc, I get you. But this shouldn't affect the DLCs your customers bought in good fatih (at leasd not the single-player DLCs, when you say "Additionally, the installation and access to downloadable content (DLC) will be unavailable").
One of the less consumer-friendly gaming enterprises around, perhaps they're even worse than EA.
The rest of the stuff you cited does sound dumb, but in many RPG circles, "walking simulator" simply refers to the type of game where you spend most of your game time literally walking around in 1st/3rd person in some big/open world to get from place-to-place, and with nothing all that exciting happening very often. Maybe you don't like the phrase, but it's a decently safe bet that Starfield will be one - Bethesda doesn't really make anything else.and they've proclaimed it a "walking simulator" (?) because you, uh, move around in it?
