Alright CliffyB, as a former Tribes player you have my interest.

However I'm still waiting to see if the other shoe drops with F2P shenanigans...

The idea of a Boarderlands movie seems like a goofier, ultraviolent version of Firefly.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...
Firefly meets Guardians of the Galaxy.

It won't be easy to get right, but it can definitely be done. And I'm all for it.

Trying to cash in on the Freddy games?
Glad to see I'm not the only one who had that thought.

Does anyone care beyond LOL nerds?
No. But according to the player stats there are a ton of LOL nerds, so it's still important to a lot of people.

I like that it's 60fps. Though the 30fps cinematics are really jarring as a result.

If Derek Smart played it snide, compact, and cool, his words would've been a lot harder to discard by this clown. He would've had more impact.

Alas, Derek Smart cannot control his emotions.

Derek Smart.
Well that's just great. You've doomed us all.

It is pretty brutal there have been, what, four total Five Nights games released in a single calendar year?

At the same time, they're a decent price, people love them and you can't hate on the guy for finding success. It's just, in today's gaming world where more people are paying attention to predatory, anti-consumer practices in gaming, this stands out a bit and catches a lot of flak that the bigger companies deserve much more.
And this is exactly what I wanted to say. I'm happy for the developer that he's found so much success, but releasing 4 games in a year certainly warrants raising an eyebrow.

After clicking through a few levels worth of links to find a list of apparent differences between it and "regular" Minecraft, I can't see a single thing worthy of my interest. Actually, I can't see much difference at all. One point lists stuff that's been there for years (e.g. chicken, boats). Another "will arrive soon after launch."

The correct name for this seems to be "Minecraft, now available in Window store".
That's because it's the Pocket Edition for Windows 10. While it may not seem like a big deal from a graphical/feature perspective, it's a very big deal at a low level since this is all reimplemented in C++ instead of Java.

In most Kickstarter/crowdfunding failures there isn't going to be recoverable money.
Exactly. Pay up with what? They failed because they used up all of their funds attempting to deliver the product int he first place.

This is why you should always use Steam Guard. I'm surprised that so-called 'pros' wouldn't protect their accounts.
It's interesting that Steam Guard would have made a difference. It's just another code system. I wouldn't expect it to even come into play when resetting a password, since the reset code is functionally the same thing.

Hey Hi-Rez, how about this? How about you fix Tribes Ascend? No?
Well fuck you too then.
Ascend was done for the moment they released the last of the DLC (most of which they had created in advance).

Would a Starsiege: Tribes remake be too much to hope for?
Yes. And you shouldn't even ask for it. Because if they did remake it, it would be nothing like the Tribes 1 we remember and love.

DX12 is a massive FUCK YOU to PC gamers. Microsoft had all but abandoned DX to focus on consoles, when AMD brought out Mantle and offered low-level access to the hardware. It was only when it realised it might lose its dominance over PC gaming that Microsoft started work on DX12 and designed it around the XB1, which was losing out massively to the PS4. In typical Microsoft style it decided to make DX12 a Windows 10 exclusive.
You do realize that DX12 has been in development for a few years, right? It's not as if MS suddenly started work on it in September of 2013 after AMD announced Mantle.

And there's good reason to make it Win10 exclusive. It goes hand-in-hand with a bunch of changes at the DXGI/driver level in order to support the API, involving everything from how command buffers are processed to how thread scheduling works. This is the biggest change to the Windows graphics layer since Vista, and these kinds of changes couldn't be fully back-ported to Windows 8, let alone Windows 7.

Has anyone played Tembo yet? I'm curious how it is. We don't get many professionally developed 2D platformers on the PC.

HorrorScope wrote on Jul 19, 2015, 20:19:
One thing irking me about 10 is all this new evasiveness on what upgrades, support, lifetime mean, yet another article that contradicts things mentioned in the past. If I can't clearly see, if your audience have different takes on what this all means, I have to assume you are trying to pull a fast one at some level.

Lifetime now equals at least 10 years
The Lifecycle policy serves to set a public, well established minimum on support, so that customers know what to expect. Windows 10 could go on for quite a while longer (especially depending on how MS defines new versions of Windows), but this sets a mimimum window so that even if MS changes their plans in he future, they are still committed to the standard 10 years of support.

I got nothin' but a gut feeling about it, but it seems to me that EA is distancing itself from Origin as its primary sales platform recently. I half expect that we'll start seeing EA games back on Steam and GOG sooner rather than later.
That would surprise me. I really don't think they've lost any sales from Origin. Certainly not enough to negate any gains from not having to pay Valve anything.

EA is a very well known publisher, and their games as well known too. If you want an EA game on the PC, you know exactly where to go to get it already.
