Are there still smart PC gamers impressed by tech demos?
Yes! I for one love tech demos. See tomorrow today!

My games queue is backed up enough as it is. But this will definitely be worth keeping an eye on. The Ubi Art engine has proven to be very impressive so it's interesting how other Ubi Art projects such as this turn out.

I'm trying not to be snarky here. I really am. But did anyone ask for this? It was not exactly a well received game on the consoles.

To me it's unbelievable that some people imo fall for this.
What is there to say? Kids are easily influenced.

I think it's awesome that the free (for Plus members) PS4 launch game will launch a YEAR after it was supposed to; I would probably be upset if I was a car game enthusiast.
The schedule slip is shocking. I can understand a moderate delay on a launch game for a new article. But how do you slip a year and not realize it until shortly before it's due?

The elemental demo being released is the unreal project for those who subscribe to UE4. This is not a standalone exe for everyone.

It's listed in the UE4 launcher under Marketplace as "Coming Soon! ETA 22:30 GMT"

ohh shucks... boo!
I'll second that boo. I don't understand why Epic doesn't release executable versions of these tech demos to the public. They have nothing to lose, and more than a few of us would like to see the real thing rather than a video.

That's been the warhorn for Xbox One since it launched (the PS4 has no games because our games averaged .4 higher at launch!).

Someone posted this the other day in both r/ps4 and r/xboxone and you can imagine how well it went down...

Huh. I didn't realize there was such a disparity.

I notice nowhere is there any indication of max simultaneous players. For $13/mo, you can get hosting already that starts to kinda get hokey around 4 or 5 simultaneous players, depending on what they're doing.
That's a very good point. I really like the Realms concept, but a bit more information would be extremely useful.

$14 for CoH2 is a solid deal. Even though it's not perfect it's definitely worth picking up at that price.

So, what do you think? Would you read a review if there wasn't a score attached to it?
I'd like to think the Internet has a whole is enlightened. But in reality it's bad enough for them being dropped by Metacritic; dropping numerical scores in turn would ward off even more readers. Most people really do just want a number, which is why Metacritic is so popular.

With something as subjective as entertainment you really need to read several sources in order to cancel out the inherent individual biases of each reviewer (people like what they like, not everyone likes the same thing). So you can either spend an hour reading several reviews, or you can go look at Metacritic. The latter isn't as good, but it's infinitely faster.

Got a beta invite for the weekend. Honestly I am not excited for this game at all anymore. Battlegrounds and instanced worlds... Just nothing new.

Someone, please... make a non-instanced MMO with open world pvp...
That would be called EVE. And what happens with non-instanced PvP is that servers quickly melt as everyone congregates in the same battle.

I won't knock Codemasters for giving their customers what they want. But the more authentic the simulation the less accessible it is to the average player. Hopefully this is something everyone is prepared for.

Are those fees broadcasters charge fair?
Are they necessary?
Are they fair? Well they're competitive with the rates that other networks charge cable companies for similar variety networks (and less than ESPN, obviously).

Are they necessary? At one point in time they weren't, but these days it's difficult to make the business work without them. Advertising doesn't pay as well as it used to these days (Super Bowl excluded, obviously), and the bifurcation of viewers over many channels has simultaneously harmed overall revenues. Meanwhile the major networks have significant overhead (affiliates and OTA broadcasting) while a network like AMC can can charge cable companies and collect ad revenue at the same time. Higher expenses and lower revenue is never a winning combination.

I miss the simplicity of 1942. None of this grindy/P2W unlock nonsense or fiddling with half a million different combinations of guns. You had your fixed classes and each role was rigidly defined. Meanwhile everyone had enough HP that they wouldn't drop like a rock, and WW2 style aircraft going up against flak was far more fun than the high speed antics of jets and AA missiles.

Well that would be interesting. But the number of Western Vita owners is still so low that I doubt it would have ever been financially viable unless Sony footed the complete bill.

I can't say I'm surprised. There aren't enough MP players in either game to justify the cost of moving it to use another backend.

News Comments > PAX East Panel Bullish on PC Gaming
9. Re: PAX East Panel Bullish on PC Gaming Apr 12, 2014, 16:02 ViRGE
 
Although I don't consider the state of PC gaming to be all woe and dreariness, I have to wonder if the answer isn't going to depend on who is asking the question. These guys discuss how revenue is greater, but don't broach the issue of unit sales.

The PC is by var the more versatile platform, which is why it has MMOs and other kinds of games that can't easily be done on consoles. But when it comes to traditional AAA game releases consoles move more units, consoles get more exclusives, and consoles form the lowest common denominator. It's this schism that allows the panel to say that PC gaming is doing great, while at the same time allowing players to lament the lack of games for the PC.

Not sure what to make of Harmonix. One says yes, one says no.


I got tired of Rock Band and other games like it. Guitars, drums, and mic collecting dust for some time now....I don't have (nor want) the time to put into it to get to the higher levels....it was more of a "have friends over and mess around" sort of thing.
It is a fun party game. No more but no less.
