Freedom without responsibility doesn't work. We should aspire to more than pandering to the lowest common denominator. Anything for a buck, Gabe?

Im not sure what you are getting at here Cutter. Its very possible that Steam and Valve might in the end lose some business because of this decision. As for your freedom without responsibility that's all fine and dandy but ultimatevly it's not your decision to make, it's Valve's or rather Gabe's.

I'm not arguing that. I'm arguing it's an irresponsible and immoral choice. They're putting profit before people, and that's immoral. No one likes censorship but the freedom at any cost argument is asinine and infantile.

Do you even read what you type, Cutter? Basically right now you're the guy giving a speech about how we should safeguard our freedom of speech by being responsible with it, as he tosses copies of Fahrenheit 451 onto a bonfire.

There is no difference in the amount of violence in this game compared to any other shooter being published today. The only notable part is that it is presented in as tasteless a manner as possible for shock value.

The number 1 rule of all ethical systems is that all rules must be universalizable. If you ban a game and a hundred other games have the same content, then you're banning it purely because of public outrage. That's not a sustainable system. Valve is restoring the game to show that they recognize that. How insane are you to even say "Anything for a buck"? It's a tiny Indie game that will draw a lot of angry protestors. The potential profit is tiny, and the potential headache is fucking huge. There is no upside for Valve besides staying ethically consistent.

agreed that the jump to IV was very monumental, but 6 years is more than enough time to do something different. all these games looks just like last-gen, using last-gen engines, it's depressing. especially considering the gen lasted longer than any other gen is history, we were due for a real bump in fidelity that has not come... this reminds me of SF2 to SF3 though, virtually identical-looking games imo.

and thank you SO MUCH for the BlazBlue tip, i knew that it was made by the same developers as Guilty Gear, but i had no idea that there were any released on PC. this will tide me over nicely until Guilty Gear releases in 2 days

Blazblue has not all been released on PC. PC release was very recent and is still one full release behind the latest console/arcade release.

Apparently worse than the original in every single way. Even though it's supposed to be a visual upgrade/remake, it is essentially a Vita->PC port. See comments here.

Well I'm ready. 'Spent' a Gamefly trial period to get the console version for 15mins so I get the Returning Player goodies. Now if only the PC release weren't 2 months after the console versions.

Has anyone heard anything about how it runs on the 360 or PS3?
The 360/PS3 version isn't even the same game. The Nemesis system is 90% stripped out due to memory constraints.

That is an exceptional trailer! I am way too spoiled by Steam sales to buy something at full price, and that trailer showed absolutely no in-game footage, but damn was that an epic trailer! Reminds me of the goosebumps the old Blizzard trailers would give me.
Greenmangaming still has their 25% off promo code valid for the next 24 hours, if you want to be tempted.

So it's Myst basically.
How is that a bad thing?

It's not really I must be the only one who liked all the Myst games.....

I don't mind slow atmosphere oozing explorations though, I just don't know what kind of gameplay length this has and what I should expect it to have. Dear Esther had less than 1 hour

Some other people have reported 4 hours. Also, from the patch notes, there are apparently supernatural baddies, though whether or not you actually fight them directly in any way is not clear.

So, corruption in journalism. Can I let you in on a secret?

We want to have that conversation. We all do, with maybe a couple of exceptions. This is a conversation we've tried to have, and wanted to have for years.


Have people forgotten Mountain Dew Doritos...gate, already?


I didn't see a lot journalists trying to have a conversation then, just a lot of bloggers denying it was even an issue.

This cant be true, can it? I mean the ludicrous hypocrisy and double-standards if true is just utterly amazing.

After publicly spitting the dummy and shaming and calling a boycott on Oculus Rift for "selling out" after being acquired by Facebook, to then turn around sell out yourself (to Microsoft of all companies!) is just too hilarious to be true.

All it shows is that everyone has their price.
Of course everyone has their price. Mojang is a game company, not a cure for all disease. If you want to be a good person, you don't say no to 2 billion dollars out of principle, you sell and spend $1.9 billion on charitable causes.

It's an old game. It was the darling of the indie scene for a while a years back. It's a roguelike with trading and spaceships instead of classes, where instead of going up/down dungeon floors you go forward/backwards toward the center of the galaxy by warp gates. Combat is top-down Escape Velocity style. The base game is free so just try it if you're interested.

Based on the title, I thought this was some strange Underworld licensed movie game. In any case, they're treading without much care for potential trademark lawsuits.

Nope. This is the most scammy KS I've seen, except maybe http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2012/05/04 . There's nothing about a game, it's basically "Hey, ESPORTS. ESPORTS! Give us money, we can do Esports. Here is how we will support ESPORTS!! Money please."

Hyperbole annoys me. I don't know how it plays, but this is a game with flash-level graphics. It wouldn't even be in the top 500 most beautiful 2d games of the last decade.

Cold and scared with a huge lead on profitability even after AMD's console deal. AMD has had years of straight losses, such that 'only' 20 million negative is great news.

Discrete graphics card market stats:
Nvidia 65%
AMD 35%

So Nvidia's share slightly less than double, when including the large numbers of AMD boards used for Bitcoin mining.

Why? Because ATI is kicking Nvidia's ass?

Hahaha, how, by having $25 price advantage per equivalent performance card? In terms of revenue and profit, Nvidia is far far ahead, while AMD just kept itself alive with a low margin chip deal for the new consoles.

Cutter wrote on Jun 4, 2014, 13:45:
That ATI drivers suck cliche ended a decade ago.
You mean the "ATI drivers no longer suck" cliche is over a decade old. How many months ago was it that they just manage to fix their decade old microstutter bug?

Frankly, it doesn't matter what company you like. Even without 'partnership' deals like this, Nvidia owns 80% of the market, and that's what devs develop and test for. That's why you see 'ATI/AMD' problems requiring emergency driver updates for 1 out of every 5 big name games released, while Nvidia "game-name" driver releases advertise 10% (2% in practice) FPS increases.
