Actually, since the NDA lifted, I'm seeing more good things posted.

The two major gripes seems to be boring starting areas (Game opens up after level 10) and melee combat not "connecting". If they can fix these two things in the next 2 months.. they should have a good start.... then they can address the rest of the gripes as they go.

The RVR actually looks really fun, and I'm not that into PVP.

The Siege stuff looks awesome:

Uh... according to many that have been in the beta, there are no cool downs for combat... only stamina / magica management.

I'm not sure why stuff on the hotbar was dimming... but it looked quick enough to be that you can't execute another hotkey while one is going off.

Microsoft belatedly attempts to use friends and family to get rid of Windows XP

If old machine has only 512 MB of RAM... Lubuntu
Otherwise Mint - Cinnamon.

Windows 7 is an option if they want to pay for it.

Cause it's certainly not out of experience with the console -- the variety of games sure have been keeping our Wii U on constantly, and there's certainly no 'looking like ass' or 'running poorly' as hundreds of online comparisons can easily prove.

The Wii U's hardware is supposedly weaker than a PS3 or an Xbox 360, according to developers.

Do you seriously think that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs won't be compromised?

Sure... it wasn't a bash on kiddie games... it was a bash (I guess) on that particular console's technical specifications being grossly insufficient for something like Watch Dogs.

I'm sure the Wii U version will look like (and maybe even play like) ass compared to the other versions.

Not even sure why they are bothering with the Wii U. It might be great for kiddie games like Mario, but it just doesn't have the horsepower to run modern AAA 3D shooters.

MMORPG.COM is the least critical that I've found.

I wouldn't play this game without a post launch free trial. (I'm not in the beta, and don't want to be).

You all need to quit saying Bethesda. TESO is NOT being made by Bethesda.

1. Zenimax is the Parent Company.

2. Elder Scrolls is made by Bethesda Game Studios.

3. Publishing arm of the company is called Bethesda Softworks.

4. TESO is being created by Zenimaz Online Studios ( Completely different folks)

5. Bethesda Game Stuios will continue to make Single player Elder Scrolls games and Fallout games.

6. As mentioned before, the only thing borrowed from the single player studio was some writers, and probably lore consulting.

The likelihood that I would pay a monthly is low, but I do wish them success.

I'd pay a monthly fee for something ridiculously good... but I just don't see that happening in the stale, regurgitated MMO genre. It's all pretty much the same shit with different paint. (YAWN)

I guess I'm just fairly burned out on MMOs.

Romero was right all along. Wasted money on ROCKETS AND YAPPED NON STOP FOR 10 years.

Not disagreeing... but... Romero ain't got much room to talk, either.

Well... it LOOKS good to me. But going by this latest trailer doesn't mean all that much. We'll see how it rates post launch.

The project has been "on hold" presumed cancelled for ages owing to Forever and whatever other legal reasons.

That's the project I first referred to that Gearbox reneged on. Gave them permission, then took it away. Then they made ROTT.

So... either the announcement is going to be Reloaded has been taken off hold...

OR

If the message on the Duke4.net forums is correct... then the announcement will be about a top-down action RPG.

I'd rather have a remake of the original Duke 3D from those guys that remade Rise of The Triad.

But the assholes at Gearbox reneged on that deal.

EDIT:
and they say this means the next Duke Nukem game will be announced at that time by Interceptor Entertainment

WOOT! FUCK YEAH!

I hope it is a reamake and not a new game!!!

Why Microsoft thought people were going to switch to touch screens is absurd. Sure many laptops are coming out with them, but still most of us would much rather use a mouse and keyboard with a familiar interface.

That (Desktop users to buy touch screen monitors) wasn't quite their objective.

The objective was to have a familiar interface to their mobile products so you would want to go buy a Windows Phone and a Windows Tablet (Since Microsoft thinks live tiles are so awesome)... AND to get you to use / rely on the Microsoft App Store.

Unfortunately for Microsoft... most people think the live tiles and flat look is fugly as sin, and don't want anything to do with them. (Which is why they buy IOS or Android devices)

The still haven't gotten it though their thick skulls that most people not only want the Start menu back... but they also want Aero glass back too. (Complete Windows 7 UI with Windows 8 under the hood features / improvements)

... and Windows 9 won't get us there, either.

The gap between the GPU performance of the Xbox One and PS4 isn't sufficient, on its own, to explain why the PS4 is pushing 60 FPS while the Xbox One can't manage much above 30 FPS.

So, 50% more shader units and compute units doesn't explain it?

And while the article does claim that they suspect that it may have something to do with difficulty coding for XBone's SRAM... it's obvious that the buffer is way too small compared to full access to GDDR5.

Huh? Huh

When they were developing the first one, they said they would be making an IOS version after release.

I bought the windows version and stopped at level 3 because I didn't want to spoil what I think is a perfect game for my iPad and traveling.
