This game is, well, boring. It's a single player game, with all the annoyances of MMOs (oh, you need to pick up this item to fulfill a quest? Somebody else just picked it up, so you'll have to wait for a bit until it respawns)

That that isn't instanced is beyond fucking ridiculous. What is this, 1998?

Isn't it pretty normal to fire a large portion of the staff after your MMO is out and all the teething issues have been resolved? It's not as if all those developers/programmers have much to do anymore.

Again, if you don't want to be fired every time you've completed a project, don't get a job in the game industry.

Glad it works, Blue. I buy thousands of bucks worth of shit off Amazon each year, so going in through your link is maybe 10 seconds of extra work.

I'm very excited about Project CARS. Is anyone playing the beta/early access/whatever?

Good on Australia. Valve's refusal to refund money on purely broken games is horseshit.

This is a fucking terrible game. It's not half bad as a Gladiator-Lite movie.

Sold to consumers. Shipped means to stores but not necessarily sold, companies say sold in to differentiate it from that.

Okay, that makes sense. Even so, I'm fairly sure it broke exactly no records, unless it's "Watch Dogs units sold" like Spectral said.

record-breaking open-world action game that has sold-in more than 8 million units

What record did it break, exactly? Because as of February, GTA5 had sold 32.5 million copies.

Also, wtf is sold-in?

Its not a bad statement, there is no real reason why anyone should resort to rascist bigotry. Hate speech is a crime where Im from, so why should it go unpunished?

Although considering the fact that most forum admins behave like fascist pigs with delusions of grandeur (thats what you get when you hire people for free) I find the irony very slightly sweet tasting.

It's fairly interesting to see you say that nobody should resort to racist bigotry when you yourself frequently reach for the anti-Christian bigotry staple when posting.

for example:

Somehow I'm still unable to be surprised by how vile people can be, especially on the internet.

There fixed that for you. With that said why would anyone be vile to her because her dad killed himself??? Must be those fundamentalist Christians again, formenting their own brand of special hatred....after all suicide is a sin...

I could dig up more, but eh. You know damn well you do this pretty often.

Might be something to consider in lieu of your original statement.

If you can make them get into fist (or knife)fights, form or join violent drug dealing gangs, or become homeless drunks, it might be more interesting. Just don't see the point of this however.

Seems boring without being able to really create some truly messed up situations.

Announcing The Sims 4: Breaking Bad DLC!

Wait... shit, I would buy that!

The point is that marketing is more than advertising and does in fact have input into the game. I don't think his game is saying that marketing is always good at its job.

The very fact that marketing DOES have input into a game is what's been fucking ruining the gaming industry. Because none of these cockwallets have a fucking clue what makes a good game. Same with this new guy at EA. "Hey, everyone, he helped sell $12 boxes of cereal and streamlined the checkout cart at Amazon! WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT KIND OF WHACKY ZANY GAMES HE CAN HELP US MAKE!"

Give me a break. The guy is a fucking suit. His positive influence to EA games will be exactly zero percent.

Certainly the best looking AC graphically-wise. But since graphics don't necessary make the game, will have to see how it actually plays.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say "About the same as all the others."

News Comments > The Carbon Footprint of Games Distribution

I'm not even gonna click on that trollbait article.

According to some dipshit, the environmental cost in electricity of downloading 1.3GB of data EQUALS the cost of creating a box, printing a DVD / Blu-Ray, printing three cards of advertising shit, wrapping the box in fucking plastic, and shipping it BY FUCKING SEMI TRUCK to a local store. (which isn't even taking into accounts things such as the production process for creating the DVD in the first place, oceanic shipping, and the even more arduous task of disposing of these physical items when they are no longer wanted.)

Congratulations onlinelibrary.wiley.com for having the most retarded fucking opinion ever posted on the internet. The earth is now more polluted because of it. Dildo.

We'll see what Chris Bruzzo can do.
What should he do? Should he just present the usual EA shit as The Greatest Game On Earth or should he find out what the customer REALLY wants?

Irrelevant. What EA wants him to do is figure out how to make the customer believe that the usual EA shit is the Greatest Game On Earth That They (the customer) Really Wants.

Instead, at Starbucks it would be the marketing deciding what products are offered. Do you like the cookie you bought from them? Someone from marketing likely made the decision for them to carry it.

Do you like the dime-a-dozen modern shooters that come out seemingly every month? Did you like the three year wave of WW2 shooters that we had? Do you like the endless waves of F2P pieces of shit we're getting?

Someone at marketing figured out, through some dildo focus group, that that's what everyone wanted.

Do you like games like Star Citizen? Someone at marketing figured out that there was just no market for that type of stuff anymore.

Two can play this game, Beamer.

Also, can we stop with the "cherry picking" argument?

Until she stops doing it, no.

She's doing a series demonstrating patterns and trends that feature tropes. There's literally no way to do this without picking games that feature these tropes.

And what of the games where she demonstrates these 'tropes' and conveniently ignores that you're perfectly free to do the same shit to male NPCs? I can go into a strip club in GTA and shoot up every male NPC inside and never shoot a woman. I can stuff male NPCs in the trunk of a car too. And she never, ever, ever mentions this. she makes it appear as if hookers are the only people you can stuff into fucking trunks in Sleeping Dogs. That hookers are the only ones you can shoot in strip clubs in GTA. That the skimpily dressed girl in New Vegas is the only one you can shoot in the entire city, and then tries to pretend that there's no consequence to shooting her while you see the freaking Karma box pops up that shows that even though you've done a lot of good for the people of New Vegas, they now definitely mistrust you because you murdered an innocent.

How do you not see that that is the very fucking DEFINITION of cherry picking?
