No Game of Thrones this weekend!! Arghhhh. Apparently out of respect for Memorial Day. (Although I suspect its due to poor ratings while people are busy doing other things and not watching TV). I fail to see the connection but then again Im not American. Is this sort of thing common in the US??

TV series always skip holiday weekends/weeks in the US. Memorial day, especially, is a very heavily traveled weekend, so it's simple true that there are far fewer people left at home to (potentially) watch your show.

"I know that this isnít really the way things are usually done in the industry, but I think that if you have put a bad product out to people it is your job to do what you can to fix that. Even if it means going back to the drawing board on a game that has already been released."

Very commendable. of course, talk is cheap.

but now even the tv shows are hardly about anything BUT a product they want to sell... even if it's amusing.

Yeah. I mean, Breaking Bad sure sold a lot of meth. And Archer sold a lot of... penis jokes? And I guess Orphan Black sold... clones?

and ultimately concludes that only one thing is certain: with enough determination, nothing is secure.

I'm glad you guys went all the way to LA to figure that out.

Okay, all kidding aside, just watching this video and remembering the PC launch trailer, I noticed quite a bit of difference. so I went back and rewatched the PC one to make sure, and yep, it sure does look nicer than the PS4 one. As in noticeably nicer.

FEEL TEH POWER OF NEXT-GEN!

They can do better. We should expect our companies to do better. But, for whatever reason, while this board is very quick to make all kinds of demands that corporations do everything better, those same people are equally quick to defend them whenever it turns to race, gender or sexuality.

Yeah, I'm going to put "NINTENDO ONLY HAS 'WHITE' CHARACTERS IN THEIR GAMES!" as approximately #93,478 on the list of "Shit corporations have to improve."

But hey, keep fighting the good fight. I'm going to focus more on US corporations trying to fucking rape the internet into oblivion.

Maybe Mario can be whatever the hell Japan wants him to be because Japan is kinda crazy and who cares. Seriously go watch some of their game shows and commercials sometime then let me know if you think White Mario is a real problem.

I may be a white man but I'm not angry

Japan is a country in which 96% of its population is native, so they really don't see differently colored people all that often. Nintendo making its character all monotone is pretty much in keeping with how Japan IS.

I'd say that if someone wants to be mad at Japan over something, maybe get mad over their glorification of rape and underage sex. (as in, older businessmen screwing teen girls.)

News Comments > Crytek Announces Arena of Fate
12. Re: Crytek Announces Arena of Fate May 22, 2014, 11:27 Creston
 
It's always amusing to see everyone jump on board a popular genre several years after the fact, when it's likely already peaked. I'm guessing Crytek will announce a DayZ clone somewhere in 2017 or so.


(Also, in 2019, MS will announce a MOBA, and in 2022 they'll do a DayZ clone, both of which will be free on Xbox Live by 2025! Sign up now!)

I hope Palmer and Zuckerberg stick to their guns and fight this in court. I dont think they are going to lose, unless Carmack was really, really stupid and actually did work on the Oculus on company time...(or money, office supplies, whatever...)

But here's the thing, they actually announced that Carmack was ALLOWED to work on the Rift while he was still at id, like a year or so ago. There was a huge discussion about it, how weird it was that he was working for two companies at the same time, and how was that going to work?

So if he was supposed to work on id stuff, but instead worked on the rift stuff, I can see Zenimax having a point. But if Carmack worked on the rift in accordance with that agreement both companies signed, then they're just now fishing for money because FB bought OR.

It's like they've finally figured out that people play Diablo for the fun of finding more loot!

(as opposed to their initial thought of... I dunno? The awesome story or something?)

My cat died on Monday, he was 1 year and 10 months old. It seems so unfair that such a happy, healthy little guy is gone so suddenly.

I'm so sorry, Quboid.

Yeah just wait for it to hit 5 or 10 bucks. It really isn't worth more than that.

Even IF they get all the bugs fixed, and get all the weird minigames destroyed, and get the actual functionality of things like trading systems and fleet commands put back in, there really just isn't anything to DO besides build complexes.

The initial previews sound promising.
GMG has a 20% off code - FUSWJT-B1DU64-JBV8UY that makes the game $28.88

So tempted, but I already don't have any time to play anything... Sigh

As article stated its 4 to 9 watts for standby. Honestly, yeah, we need to worry about people leaving 60 watt lightbulbs on all day, but why are we obsessing of a 5 watt device? There are tons of much more power hungry things in your household.

The XBone uses 16 watts in standby. That's ridiculous. And no one leaves on a 60 watt light bulb for 24/365. And 16 watts is like leaving a CF bulb on all the time.

Indeed, a device using more than 1w in standby is also violating EU laws.... 16 Watts is insane. That's how much an ACTIVE NAS needs, when it servers a bunch of HDD's and network chips.

And the xbone uses that much power when it's OFF ?

Well, it needs to be listening for when you might tell it to turn back on! After all, clicking a button on your controller is too much work!
