News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - Dungeon Defenders Eternity [Updated]

The multiplayer in this game is a min-maxer player's wet dream, and a nightmare to people like me who just want to enjoy the experience. So I played the first game 99% in single player and loved it. I'm extremely glad that they listened to fan feedback and enabled single player.

I'm getting tired of hearing about women's issues all the time in the press, I can only summon so much empathy before I start to think "well do something about it then". If writing about their plights is doing something then maybe...stop doing so much about it then

Seriously though people are pricks on the internet, many of the examples are things where something has gone viral or the person was exposed to large public attention. It sucks but that attracts the weirdos. I think they get a different kind of harassment which sucks but there are a lot of lonely people and weird people who act out on the internet because it provides them a sense of anonymity. I'm sure Adam Orth or CliffyB would happy to tell some of them all about the harassment they get.

Edit: they disabled comments for the story which was really lame.

Verno stated my exact feelings on this matter and this latest clickbait article. This has gotten so silly that it's hard to take the issue seriously anymore. Which is a shame, because there is an issue. But overblowing it by several orders of magnitude by posting article after pointless article about it because you need the attention or your site needs the extra ad revenue about only serves to deaden everyone's sensitivity to it until no one cares anymore.

I'm no fan of Microsoft, and their callous wording about people losing their jobs aside, but in this instance I have to say that if anyone Nokia is the bad guy if you are dead set on finding one. Nokia knowingly agreed to this merger knowing it would put thousands of people out of work. Shareholders get a payday, the little guy gets shafted.

Two thirds of them were Nokia employees...

That would then indicate 1/3, or about 6000 workers WERE Microsoft employees, wouldn't it? That doesn't exactly paint a rosy picture for Microsoft, redundancy notwithstanding.

In other news, Nokia employees didn't get a bonus for 2013. Their CEO got a $25 million dollar bonus.

That shit ought to be illegal.

How dare a company fire people! You should have your job until you don't want it anymore or are deemed incompetent! These evil fucks and their changing staffing needs.

I don't think that is what has people miffed. I think itt is more how a company can sound so callous about tossing 18,000 employees and their families out on their asses in a middling job market in a middling economy.

Me, I'm thinking more about the millions upon millions of dollars Balmer got as a bonus when he left for basically screwing up everything he touched royally during his tenure.

You understand it's the corporate communications department, not the executives themselves, writing these messages, and they're doing it heavily under the eye of legal, right?

Why wouldn't he? More importantly does it matter? They are speaking for the company, and these execs are the public face of the company.

Almost 10 years since Sims 2 shipped. That's an exceptionally long run for an EA game.

Verno wrote on Jul 16, 2014, 10:57:
Yeah that's surprisingly generous for EA.

Every time they do something to earn themselves some goodwill (and start NOT being the lead contender for the annual "Worst Company in America" vote) it seems they soon turnaround and do something so vile and stupid that it wipes away goodwill they earned and then some. Waiting to see if they follow the pattern...

DLC is the reason I don't buy games at release anymore.

Same here. I doubt I wil ever buy a game at release again. To be honest it isn't the ONLY reason (lack of time weighs in as well), but it is probably the biggest one.

Comcast is full of shit. Their employees are trained and encouraged to behave excatly like this guy on the recording. No one would argue like he did against cancellation without being told their job depended on it.

At first I thought it was an expansion for the recently-released Space Hulk TBS. I bought that on a sale now I need to give it a whirl. I am frothing at the mouth at the idea of a solid WH40K shooter.

BTW, am I the only one who totally dug the Space Marine 3rd Person action game? It seems most around here slagged it pretty hard.

And according to this interview, the CEO still doesn't get why people don't like the game and has no intention of really making the big changes needed.

It's like he's saying they made a great game and people just don't get how great it is.

It's kind of like having an ugly baby. It's beautiful to you 'cause it's yours but everyone else is like "EGADS that is one ugly baby!"

People still debate whether soccer players melodramatically flop around like bad-acting retards? It is so obvious that they do, they make the game utterly unwatchable for me.

News Comments > GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble
64. Re: GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble Jun 26, 2014, 14:18 Prez
 
It seems like Crytek has been aimlessly meandering without any clear focus or direction for some time now. A couple of counterpoint though- I loved the original Crysis, if only because it looked incredible (not to mention the fact that it wasn't nearly as bad gameplay-wise as everyone says). Farcry was an astounding game; the bad voice acting and cheesy story were not the point - the beautiful island was. A huge, mostly seamless,open world with gorgeous graphics... Nothing like that had ever been done before.

Yerli is an idiot but I would still like to see him get his company's shit together - Crytek makes great tech and good games.

50,000 bucks would surely get you a nice title screen. Maybe even some neat menus for changing game settings.

With everything as expensive as it is nowadays, I suspect $50,000 isn't going to cut it when making a living breathing open world like Stalker. I'm not sure you could do it with $500,000.

News Comments > Ubisoft's Newfound DRM Insight

Hey, Ubisoft earned every bit of scorn they received with the crap they pulled with Silent Hunter 4's and Assassin Creed 2's broken and draconian DRM for sure. That said, they earned back a lot of respect when they started behaving right. Uplay isn't my favorite thing in the world, but it is better than Origin and is mostly unintrusive. Points as well for not behaving like children like EA and still allowing their games to be sold via Steam even though Ubisoft has its own service.
