I will give them credit for stripping out GFWL too, especially given that this game has zero community right now.
Indeed. Anyone willing to strip out GFWL is doing well by me.

TotalBiscuit just started streaming this game on Twitch:

IT'S FUCKING ON RAILS, LIKE A LIGHTGUN SHOOTER.
HI-FUCKING-LARIOUS
An on rails shooter? Wow.

I had low expectations for this game, but that's sinking to an all new low.

"The Lowest Possible Score In 'Super Mario Bros.'"

What kind of shenanigans is this? The 4-2 warp zone is not accessed via a pipe.

So I'm not the only one who noticed that...

Within 20 seconds you can tell it is a mame/modded game.
Honestly I'm cool it it being emulated and combining multiple runs if they messed up. But if the game is modified or inconsistent then it ruins the whole purpose.

There are cheap cash-ins, sure. But there's also titles/people who are doing what they're doing because they love it. And that's where you find the quality games.


And on the PC end even less so. It is still easy to find and wade through and get all the info you need before a buy. Perhaps mobile has more shite quality.
Mobile is definitely a lower degree of quality. The problem is that mobile ecosystem essentially forces everyone into producing free/cheap games and make their money on IAPs. There's no room for development of games where they're just a reasonable up-front purchase, because consumers have been taught to not pay for games.

Blackgate wasn't exactly well received on either the 3DS nor the Vita. So I'm surprised they're even doing this. I guess the costs are low enough that they wouldn't need to sell very many copies?

x QFT....

First Snapchat now WhatsApp? I don't think the management at Facebook has a firm grasp on the value of money. They're like Dr. Evil trying to estimate how much is "a lot".

Lol! 16 billion for a messaging app. Wtf are they smokin' at Facebook?
Facebook isn't smoking anything. The smoking is being done by FB's investors, who think FB is worth so much in the first place.

For FB, this makes perfect sense. Buy out a competitor before they can decimate FB, at any cost.

Pack-in? Is that a British expression? I've never heard it before in my life. It sounds weird...pack-in. Pack-in fudge? Pack-in over add-on, peripheral, et al? Anyway, it's always funny to see the disenfranchised MS fanboys realizing they got burned - but not as burned when it comes out the Spybox has been spying on them all along. Love the fanboy comments too! So desperately trying to rationalize it. Lol!
The phrase "pack in" is as old as consoles itself. It refers to any item included with the console besides the console itself.

Ex: KB Toys is selling a Super Nintendo bundle that includes Donkey Kong Country and a second controller as a pack-in.

People pay for cheats? Cheats have DRM? WTF is the world coming to? Wtf
Making MP cheats has become increasingly expensive. So instead of it being done by (evil) hobbyists, it has been taken up by professional hackers who are looking to get paid for their time.

I'm guessing someones trying to make them in to the new minions (Despicable Me) or similar, where the sidekicks are more popular than the main characters...
They already were the original Minions. The first Rabbids game came out before Despicable Me was written.

We both enjoy the Rabbids Invasion show.
Bwah.
It didn't seem like Rabbids Invasion was doing all that well ratings wise, but I guess I was mistaken.

I'm not sure how a whole Rabbids movie would work. It seems best suited to shorts.

Is your steam client downloading DLC you don't own for some reason?
Many MP games distribute DLC content to everyone so that everyone has the assets. Which reduces fragmentation, but sometimes means you're downloading gigs of content you never wanted.

What exactly is a crock? The fact that Last of Us swept the awards or something more specific?

The Last of Us winning for "Most Innovative" is a start...

That's a great game but it's a zombie-themed action-adventure game, there's nothing innovative about it other than the fact an action game is well written.
This is just my $0.02, but I wouldn't even classify it as a great game. Rather it's a mediocre game melded to a well written story.

Everything about TLoU screams "this should be a movie." And not in the "they need to make a movie out of this sense", but rather the entire production and product was created as a movie rather than a game. Consequently the gameplay elements are severely lacking, I find. It's basically an interactive movie, though even that's a stretch since there's only a single ending (interactive fiction implies a branching structure).

I'm starting to wonder if we need to have different categories for games and what amounts to movies with gameplay elements. It seems like voters are always going to be wowed by the high production value and tight pacing of a movie, even though that's something of an antithesis to gaming. But that's just my opinion.

What was pay to win about it? Like I said the starter mech everyone gets was one of the best.

Consumables that can only be bought with real money. Not the worst P2W stuff out there, but enough to rub people the wrong way. They add gameplay advantage on top of your normal mech ability loadout.
And now I'm disinterested again. Thank you.

Weird. Wonder how much this will be.
Taken from the Uplay page for the gold edition of ACIV: "This single-player adventure adds more than 3 hours of playing time to the total experience of Black Flag."

Seems odd to me that they release that as a standalone. Unless there's more to it than that.
I bet it'll be $15. The same price as Blood Dragon when it was released.

Hawken is NOT a Mech game. It is a kiddie Quaker not unlike VirtuaOn.... that just happens to sport Mechlike skins.

It is a mech game. It's an arcade style mech FPS game, like VirtuaOn or Armored Core(actually very similar to Armored Core in concept). It's not a simulation style mech FPS game, like Ultra Bots, Mechwarrior, or Iron Soldier.
The F2P elements of Hawken have always driven me away. But if it's like VirtuaOn, I think I very much want to play it.
