You all need to go back to sucking Jack Thompson's dick and stop pretending you haven't murdered zillions of pixel people over the years with very thin pretenses of justification. Including innocent pixel people and cop pixel people.

Suddenly some people make a game that doesn't attempt to justify or make excuses for it's "protagonist" and everyone is offended. Check your hypocrisy.

I'm with you. One of our most verbal members has a 2x4 up his ass so far on this one, but a week or so ago another censorship/freedom post came up and he was so Pro-freedom, that how it was worded had to be ok with Hatred existing, because we just have to be allowed to.

It's hard to see ourselves sometimes. As I grew older a lot of "can you believe people do that?" comes up and really I've been that person to from time to time. We all are asshole drivers, you drive, from time to time you are an asshole on the road, for other drivers perspectives.

Do NOT preorder this, even if you previously purchased and enjoyed a console version. For the love of god, wait until the quality of the port is assessed and stop fucking pre-ordering shit until you know if they've given our platform the respect it deserves.

Right. If $50'ish dollars really matter to you, I'd suggest waiting to be sure.

Each release is just that, one can point to GTA 4, sucked. But Max Payne good! Well Ubi was on a roll for a while with good ports and looked what happened in 2014? We don't know what is going on behind scenes, this industry isn't below fucking it up royally.

Gamers don't have the courage of their convictions. It will be like the boycott COD group playing the new COD on day one. Few players will ask for refunds percentage wise. The devs know this and this is a pr win with low monetary cost.

Or another possibility. That each person speaks for themselves, so when 10 people come here and whine, ultimately it is 10 people not 10,000. Those getting their money back are getting what they want. Those not asking for money back are getting what they want. The people you speak to seem to be people that want their money back, but rather complain about it then go getting it, imo that will be few. It isn't near everyone that wants their money back and we have to respect that, that what we conclude isn't always what another will do.

SOE has 3 large scale games in beta/dev: H1, Landmark and Next, the two we can get our hands on... wow they have a lot of work in front of them and a LOT OF DIRECTION needed. I wonder if this is what past projects looked like internally and now we see it, or if they've slid a bit back, I know Landmark while in some ways pushing the envelope forward a game needs to be in there to.

News Comments > H1Z1 Refunds

So ok we have a lot of these open world survival games.

The beni that this game can bring is a monster development team.

So perhaps they can take it to levels we haven't seen.

They are having server issues, yes they will go away, but indies have done it better out of the gate. Indies actually give us more freedoms to.

But then the devastating blow of buying weapons, gear and ammo with real money trying to hide that with drops. They talked about how they were going to keep it to non-competitive purchases and then come out with possibly the most lopsided way to give an advantage if you spend. Then defending it by not taking it back, but offering refunds to those that don't like it, pretty much saying "the way drops are, are final", I will never play a game like that, I know many won't, some will. But they just kicked a lot of players out with this, right now I am out no matter what they do if they keep that.

It can rebound, but it now has double the red flags up from me.

Edit: Read smedley remarks, he understands it needs tweaked, understands right now as it sits, PTW. Will have to see how they tweak guns, ammos and armor purchases that aren't PTW.

News Comments > MS: Windows 10 "Best" OS Ever Created for Gamers

Slick wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 11:48:
you know what would actually be a cool feature? if windows 10 had a gaming feature that would just lump all of your titles on your harddrive across all different publishers all into one simple list. (they used to do something like that i remember, pre everything being digital)

So there could just be one service that runs lite versions of steam, origin, uplay etc. in the background that you'd never even have to know existed. All you see if you list of installed games, click on them, then play.

I mean that would be a killer app regardless if M$ makes it or not.

That is about all the probably can do now and if they/someone did it right, I can see the benefit. MS could have had 30% (like Steam) of all PC sales with just keeping the Software Service updated and running. No cost of HW, buying exclusive, no retail costs. They spent a lot of money on something they could have spent little on and made a killin. LOL totally missed it. On guy in MS knew, he had to leave the company to show them, but he is just a sliver, a large sliver, but not the whole.

I want to know what makes W10 the best for gamers on the PC?

My guess is:
-share your gamertag between xbox and PC
-touchscreen support
-native xbox controller support
-kinect camera compatible with windows pc
-smart glass
-I don't know some other bullshit noone cares about we'll figure it out as we go

Hope support won't get cut anytime soon for Win7

-Use the power of the cloud?
Boy that one fell fast on its face, instead they have to take cores back from Kinect and O/S tasks, lol. The cloud did exactly what educated gamer thought.

In his defense, when Annie Hall was written, TV was trash. The Love Boat, Brady Bunch, Happy Days, Three's Company, etc.

Maybe he can do a show about molesting children!


Can Roman Polanski co-create?

Maybe they can get Bill Cosby to be in it.

Featuring Jerry Sandusky, with a retrospective by Mike Jackson and an Outro by the Roman Catholic Church.

Maybe these are all great changes, how many people really go back and see for themselves? Tough roads ahead.

What I find amazing is mmo with years of patch notes a mile long... as basically it all plays the same still, relatively speaking.

Gamers will vote with wallets, we shall see.

Gamers are idiots, they fed the beast that became steam and MMO's thereby paving the way for always online DRM.

The free market can only exist if you have people intelligent enough to make valid decisions and punish companies, otherwise you get criminal behavior.

Leave personal emotion out of it and if gamers are smart or stupid...

If they make money at it then it was right for them. We can voice are opinion and we individually can or not buy the game.

Put it this way, the existence of PC Gaming doesn't hinge on this game being a success or not, so we don't need to worry at a level like that. They don't give me what I want, I go elsewhere, doesn't mean it will be a failure for them.

In my review, I just don't see why the cost of this game is so high for what they are giving, let alone if the game is really really fun.

As someone said UT back in the day gave a lot more bang for the buck, for less. MP Games are funny, there isn't a fresh story, however people buy these reoccurringly and the value has dropped significantly over the years as they take away features. But if that is what makes them happy...

That is a lot of excuse masked as reasoning.

The game without the DLC is comically over priced to begin with and it goes down from there.

The industry hasn't changed a lot since L4D, if anything indie projects have grown. It wasn't that long ago, acts like it was 10 years ago.

Gamers will vote with wallets, we shall see.

I want to believe that the recommended settings listed are for 1080/60 with high settings. Please?

Max Payne 3 wasn't bad, right?

Don't know, didn't play it.

Missed Shadowrun Dragonfall.

Agreed, clear miss there. At least DA:I isn't in the running.

Let me guess, you never played DA:I

Not directed at me, but...
I'll play it when they patch in what they said they would day 2 after release. They have gone completely radio silent at this point and I look at it as if no patch has been released because the one they did have did nothing if not create more issues.

I finished the game with nary a problem.

Thousands did, thousand finished a game you didn't like. My point is most acknowledge bad controls, they did day 2, said they'd fix and then nothing. Or put it another way... you've knocked games for less around here I'm sure. EA isn't living up on their end. Don't defend it.

Yeah, maybe if you have the hearing of Daredevil you might need a Pono, otherwise, no.

Needle and the damage done?

Yeah, stereo needle and huge fucking speakers.

Actually, there is a need for HD audio. There is a big difference between 128k and 256k audio but you need a quality stereo to notice and the right music.

This, this and more this. The quality we are fed streaming is good for headsets. But you put it on the stereo with speakers and crank it, most of it breakdown pretty badly, You can sense the low bit rate. Ripping CD's if not using CD's is still where it is at if you have the need to blast through speakers. I still have that need.

That said, who do you guys feel has the best quality downloads/streams?
