Oh joy, see those fucking "triggers". You SEE THOSE!?

I could give a fuck about everything else there but you're going to ship those weird rounded ball sack simulators again!? Are you fucking kidding me!?

Still better than the 360 ones!

The NVIDIA linux driver is closed and not free ...

Drivers are free.

Free as in beer, but not free as in speech.

Ugh. MS is now locking copies to that particular PC?

I wonder if it still counts adding new RAM as a new computer.

? If nothing is impacted, then why fire 25 people? Might as well have said nothing. My ASSUMPTION is that the mobile and hardware sections aren't doing as projected and they cut a lot of fat from those projects.....

Maybe 25 people are fired exactly because nothing is impacted. They were unnecessary. Superfluous. Excess.

I never run out of things to watch on Netflix, they have a great mix of new and older content that is perfect for most viewers.

I am possibly just really picky.

I threw money in for a bunch of kickstarters, but this one... felt really off to me. Couldn't bring myself to touch it.

You can always purchase it down the road, once it's out and been reviewed. There's been more than a couple of KS I passed on, even though I liked them, since they had met their goals already.

Nothing wrong with being cautious.


Yeah, that's the plan. I would love a new space combat sim. Also, having Freelancer on his resume gives me pause. Hah.

Seems like as many as 25 people may have been let go from Valve this week.

"So how's the Steambox coming?"
"It's coming along great! We'll have to charge about $800/ea to break even..."
"Get out."

For me... there actually is some kickstarter fatigue. I threw in for a number of projects, and now I'm waiting for results before I throw in any more. Though the Longest Journey kickstarter is pulling me back in.

But Wildman, yeah. Just didn't seem like a game I wanted to play.

News Comments > Bungie's Destiny Details Soon

When Halo gains the status of Doom 1+2, Unreal Tournament, Thief 1+2, Deus Ex 1, Far Cry, or Crysis, it will then be worthy. It is not and it never will be. Each of those games, in one category or another, significantly progressed FPS games.

Sure Bungie has made other games:

Myth - A mediocre and forgettable RTS series
Oni - A forgettable TPARPG
Marathon - Forgotten by gaming history except by Mac zealots.

The only reason Bungie is known is for Halo and that is because it was a premier launch title on a console that was fighting out of its weight class. I give them credit for creating it and milking the franchise for all it's worth, because they are a business after all, but let's not pretend that volume equates to achievement.

After all, the Pinto sold in droves, too.


Oni's actually one of my favorite games. It was underappreciated.

I got rid of cable 10 years ago. And I'm no college kid. There's plenty to do on the internet. And my kids grow up commercial free (and in fact got extremely annoyed at the commercials during the Superbowl livestream). Even if Netflix was $24 per month instead of $8, it would still totally be worth it.

They need to really start bringing some content back. I canceled my account when they did the whole change to the TOS. It was a convenient chance to take a principled stand since there's nothing left on there to watch.

Cliffski = Derek Smart Jr. Value is relative. People spend 100 million plus on a painting. It's some swirls of coloured oil on canvas. Forgetting the "investment" aspect of art, really, what is $20 worth of materials worth? No more, nor less than what someone is willing to pay for it. Same with F2P games. Virtual or not it amounts to the same thing in the end.

What happened to Derek Smart (Derek Smart! Derek Smart!!!!) anyway? I haven't heard about any new Battlecruiser Whatever games in a while.

I bought Dark Souls on the steam sales at Christmas and couldn't even play it without some magical bullshit involving reinstalling 2 different GFWL versions in a specific order while uninstalling some other service. Never again.

I never had any of those problems, but I was hit with the GFWL problems all this weekend. Booooo. BOOOOO.

You are forgetting Hard Reset

Oh, yeah. I picked it up on sale a couple months ago, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Probably why it's not front n center.
GO PLAY IT NOW! The rest can wait.

It's lacking multiplayer, though, unfortunately. That was my favorite part about Serious Sam. Four guys running around fending off waves and waves of baddies.

No new Radeon GPUs from AMD for most of 2013?

That can't be good news from AMD.

Are there any big-budget 'Triple-A' titles anymore that actually haven't been effected by the apparent SUCK permeating the industry lately? Seriously, WTF has happened to all the good games/franchises in the last two years? NONE of them can seem to pull off anything equal to what they did previous, much less EXCEED it! Are we supposed to put all our hopes with 8-bit-wannabe indie titles to gives us a quality experience now?

Fresh blood. A lot of the up and coming designers were raised on different kinds of games than us and that shows in the final result when they try to remake old franchises. There's also a focus on financial results before creative quality, games are being drawn up as business models instead of entertainment.

I don't think it's all bad though, we've seen a lot of great games over the past three years too. I think the perception is skewed because many old games are being rebooted and people feel pretty strongly about that when they fuck up.

Agreed. There's a lot of garbage out there, and lots of remakes and sequels lately have made me grouchy, but I've had no shortage of good games to play.
