Just posting to say that I will be at Epic Games for an upcoming event! Excited to visit their studio and play Fortnite until my eyeballs fall out. Maybe I can weasel a job out of someone while I am there.

Enjoy it. Their facilities are fantastic.

Erm, it's sitting in my Games list and I've not installed it. Not sure what you guys are going on about. You click install and it just assigns it to your games list just as if you would buy it. Then you can choose to immediately download and install it, or just leave it there.

The game gets assigned to your account when you hit install, whether you actually download it or not.

Must have screwed up for me. I tried twice, and it wasn't showing up in my library. Given that they say "If you don't install," I figured Valve had implemented something new.

Oh, well, it's installed for me now.

Perhaps "bitchy" isn't the right word. How would you characterize comments like these (just from the past two days):

"Putin is a dick and a tater."

"Fucking lawyers get 15 mil."

"Hipsters are douchebags."

"I hate them." (of Apple)

"What a load of horseshit."

"There's no way Google is doing that out of the goodness of their shriveled black hearts."

"I lost almost 10 hours of gameplay on AC4 because of their fucking cloud bullshit."
It's cool, it wouldn't be Blue's without ya. It's just funny when you try to deny it when so many people have called you out on it.

I don't consider myself quite as negative as Cutter but...

Putin IS a dick, I hate fucking lawyers who rape the legal sytem to line their own pockets, hipsters generally ARE douchebags, Apple DOES suck, there ARE many loads of horseshit laying around, Google very well may HAVE shriveled, blackened hearts, and losing your game progress because of broken cloud saves IS bullshit.

I don't think we can really argue with this.

I dunno, my definition of "hipster," coming from Boston in the early 00s, is someone that thinks he's too cool for everything and therefore hates everything, particularly hates anything that's had any success and is therefore less niche, and is always complaining about how things were better in the past (the standard hipster comment being "I loved their 7", but the full release sucked.")

Applying that to games, that's basically half this board. But this board is really just crotchety middle-aged white guys, not hipsters. This community is an inch away from demanding people get off its lawn.

Story has me confused he talks up 4K but is using a 1440P monitor.

"Asus’ latest 4K monitor, the PB287Q" - It's not 4K.

I did a search and another article is talking about this model being 4K. But both Amazon and New Egg have this monitor at 1440P.

ASUS PB287Q, LED-Monitor
3840x2160 Pixel
699€

You look at the wrong stores ,)

And if you were really curious.. well there is the official site
https://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/PB287Q/

It isn't the wrong stores, it's the wrong product. Amazon doesn't yet have the PB287Q, so a search of it brings the PB278Q, which was 1440P.

Note how close those model names are.

It only took them eight months to admit what everyone else was already telling them: That Kinect was a worthless piece of shit.

Never in the history of ever has a company ever eaten so much crow.

Yup. Shit show that cost at least one job. Wonder if it was just him or more. Or if it was kind of everyone bought into bad ideas.

So that they could be getting destroyed by Samsung, the same way every single other Android dev is?

No it's pretty much PR fluff, a 10% reservation isn't going to make up the difference in CUs and Microsoft can't do anything there without new hardware.

Consoles are kind of retarded these days, a glorified x86 PC that has to last 8+ years is absurd with the sort of pace we're seeing from other devices. Microsoft utterly failed PC gaming despite every advantage in the world so I shouldn't be surprised they are fucking up their console efforts too.

I guess it's just semantics, but to me, PR fluff is something like blast processing, which was entirely meaningless. Freeing up some resources reserved for Kinect isn't meaningless. Is it close to meaningless? Sure. Will it give maybe only a few fps? Sure. But that's still something tangible, as opposed to blast processing, emotion engine, etc.

Crazy. Maybe genius, maybe annoying, but it definitely makes me likely to play it now. Otherwise, it'd sit in my list uninstalled and unplayed likely forever.

I started Dead Island recently and, after spending an hour searching for 10 bottles of booze, I may be done with it. Maybe I'll switch to this.

dude, if you cant find booze there's something wrong wit you. the booze is everywhere. and besides that's a side quest, not important to worry about. As for Sniper Elite 2. that's a game worth playing especially Coop. I had a blast wit ha friend playing that GAME.

And Batman, lets be fair now. that game is a bit old now so yes the number of players is defiantly going to be low.

The issue is that the booz is in, like, 6 spots, and just regenerates. Twice I accidentally drank it because it put it in my hand instead of inventory. And it's a side quest, but I prefer doing some side quests.

The power differences and resulting PR circus reminds me very much of the Super Nintendo vs Genesis days.. except MS fucked up big time compared to anything sega did in that generation. Can't wait to see their equivalent of the 32x

Morning Cutterbait?


Given it's own section, I think it could turn out to be pretty entertaining. Spread across the site, you wonder why he anytime the word "hunt" is in an article his comment is "Mike Hunt?"

1) It's his game he can do whatever the fuck they want in it.
2) The game has a dark side. Seen several npc's who frequently internet search the word 'rape' Not to mention the human trafficking part of the game.
3) Seen lots of funny shit like 'Steve White' who was a gay black guy (there is a joke in Steel Magnolia's 'All gay men have track lightin'. And all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve') So I was laughing pretty hard about it.

1) Of course he can do what he wants with it
2) I have no idea what your other points have to do with it

I can see people saying that the kid is just trolling, and clearly he is, and clearly he's doing it well. But the whole "AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH KILLING WHITE PEOPLE!?" argument just has nothing to do with anything they're saying. It's a standard knee-jerk reaction to a knee-jerk reaction that I've come to expect from someone who either posts judging an article on the title or makes a non-sequitur "joke" everyone scrolls past ignoring.

Actually a tablet is ideal to play turn based strategy games. There are at least two games I would like to own an IPAD for. XCOM and Hearthstone. Sadly just those two games (one of which I have finished) are hardly justfication enough to buy such an expensive toy.

Yup. Strategy games tend to be more like chess, and there's little in the new X-COM I think would be hard to do via tablet. Grenades, maybe, but grenades were oddly hard to do via mouse, as well.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Jun 4, 2014, 17:31:
It's too bad. I had a Windows Phone provided by my employer for a number of months and quite liked it. The interface blows the dated one from iOS out of the water. My girlfriend has a Lumia 920 and swears by it. Given that there are as many Windows Phones in the world as there are Macs and per capita, its growth is surging while the other two are saturating, it kind of feels like a decent sized market to ignore.

It's a big market in countries that aren't big app buyers, and a small market in ones that are.

There are only a few apps I miss having. At least that I'm aware of. I'd kill to finally have Tinder, but whatever.

I do agree, though, that after using WP8 for a few days iOS feels outright ancient. It may have better features (actually, it absolutely has better features), but the actual design theory, getting anywhere, doing anything, or finding any information in iOS just feels like a hassle to me.

But going around killing and robbing white people is perfectly acceptable is it? Kotaku clickbait is just always wrong on just about every level.



The clickbait section really needs to become a permanent feature here, and every Kotaku article can immediately and automatically be relegated to it.

Can we have a section for every time Cutter comments on a title rather than an article?

Because the article is about a YouTube video titled "Making the World a Better Place" in which a guy walks down the streets in Watch Dogs and kills only black people, latin americans, muslims and gay people.

Cutter's comment makes it seem like he thinks the problem they are commenting on is that black people can be killed. No, what they're commenting on is people making videos in which they seek out minorities to kill and brag about under the guise of "making the world a better place." Even someone as "almost always positive" as Cutter has to admit that's fucked up.

It's also not at all related to the game, and would happen in any game, but that wasn't Cutter's complaint.
