Another example of preaching one thing and doing the opposite. Nothing says "traditional christian family values" like a little securities fraud.

I predict hatred is going to be a highly pirated game.

Ubisoft is creating FUD. There are plenty of business rating sites and they say Kinguin is fine.

Techland has a long and infamous history of technical issues upon release.

They didn't optimize the PC version? Wow, how not surprising. Also it's a red flag when review copies are sent so late.

The advantages of being open source software. "Devs of game, I will patch the Kernel so you guys don't have to work around the OS." These words are probably never uttered at Microsoft or Apple.

Microsoft has extensive testing and compatibility modifications to ensure applications, such as games, do not break. So casting aspersions that direction is pretty silly as their entire business is built on the promise of compatibility.

However, I will grant you that Apple definitely hasn't proved that they care very much except for the largest vendors (Adobe, etc.).
You have taken a very uncharitable reading of what I said. I know MS test extensively but nobody at MS has ever publicly said what Torvalds said. That's what I was trying to say. I was trying to be very specific too.

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 when it came out and after a little adjustment period, I like it better than 7.

I think this is a good deal, mainly because Windows 10 will be more secure than Windows 7. If you are running 7, you should give serious consideration to the upgrade when it becomes available.
How do you figure out how secure an operating system is before it's released? The only way to know is way after it gets released. In other words looking back on it. Think about it.

I don't care about streaming xbone games to PC. I pay big money for hardware I don't want inferior xbone hardware to stream to my PC. I guess there probably are some people who do. I just don't know them.

News Comments > H1Z1 Airdrop Explanation/Apology
45. Re: H1Z1 Airdrop Explanation/Apology Jan 18, 2015, 13:31 Overon
 
They can do all those things they outlined for aidrops without requiring players pay for them. It's really simple. Just make them random. But if they do that then players won't pay. Even if they keep them paid, players are likely to pay less if the chances of not getting to the airdrop if they make it "too contested".

Everything about this game from the low polygon count models and low polygon level geometry, the jerky animations, the terribly low res textures, the lack of good anti aliasing (look at all the jaggies in the sceenshots) scream that there was a small development budget. This is one of those games where the business model is keep the development budget low and make players pay for things. Or that's the impression that I get, which of course can be wrong.

Gamers don't have the courage of their convictions. It will be like the boycott COD group playing the new COD on day one. Few players will ask for refunds percentage wise. The devs know this and this is a pr win with low monetary cost.

I was in the alpha. It's unfortunate that the game has weapons that are hard to miss with and a very spammy feel. It's clearly designed for consoles. If they only made it as a real PC game it would have been better. I was in the Alpha and it was just too much console design decisions for me.

This video is pretty compelling as to why the original version of Oddworld is superior to this new remake:

That is how you review a game. I wish others could review a game. A lot of reasons given.

Hard to get excited about the prospects of this game when you hear about season pass and dlc details like this. Also the game looks like it has too much consolitis. We shall see in the upcoming betas.

Remember don't preorder and don't buy day 1. Wait and see.
