7) The cretinous blur filter which still has no in-game option to turn off. Once you install DarkD3 and see how much texture detail this filter OBSCURS, you will ask what the designers were thinking.
After i installed Dark3d, i never switched it off, despite it making the UI less readable. This game has a lot of very detailled, very nice looking textures ... and they managed to hide all that with their vaseline filters. Now i fully understand what David Brevik said about Diablo 3 two years ago. Beside all those stupid gameplay design descisions ... how could they do that? Really, what were they thinking?

And like Thompson, one day she'll fade away, when no one cares about her any more. Unfortunately, that took Jack upwards of 15-20 years...hopefully she can attain the same level of failure in less time.
She isnt important. Its not about her. Its about the role of women in video games and the video game industry.

One thing I would like to know about GOG is who controls the price?
Who do you think? The distribution rights holder, the publisher and devs. Like Valve, GOG does only make price recommendations which the publisher may follow or not. Sales are only made with approval of the distribution rights holder.

And the Fallout Give Away simply was a "Fuck you, Bethesda!" of Herve Cain, the boss of Interplay, finally losing the Fallout licence to Bethesda after several years of legal struggle.

How did they beat Steam to the punch?
Steam has movies as well(granted, not DRM-free).
Movies are not very prominently featured on Steam. I guess many Steam customers are not aware of them at all.

Can't watch that pillars video at the moment, what can I expect?
Its another gameplay video from the Beta and like Obsidian promised: PoE seems to become a refined, updated and improved version of everything which made Baldurs Gate such a classic.

Ideally, wed like to do so without being insulted and threatened ...

Then simply do your effin job. REPORT on the state of the gaming industry, REPORT on how people work there, REPORT on how the business is made, REPORT on how creative a dev can be when working on this kind or this kind of project. INFORM and EDUCATE your readers on the background of making a little indie game or making a huge chartbreaker. Go and ask questions. Even and especially uncomfortable ones. Ask devs, ask marketing people, ask simple gamers. REPORT, dammit. And not just some nice, easy coverage of the latest game with niffty screenshots and excerpts from the press kit.

But instead you just whine and whine and whine how people are fed up with the majority of the gaming press NOT DOING THEIR EFFIN JOB!

God, this article made me angry. I should go outside and walk the dog!

The point of the redux is that they changed the second game to have more of the horror/survival feel of metro2033 with a new "survival mode", instead of run and gun/easy time mode. The 'graphics' are just extra icing.
Ahh, good to know. Thnx!

Funny, i didnt noticed the first cut to the new redux version until i looked in the upper right corner, where it suddenly said "Redux". Yes, after a while i noticed some differences. When you know where to look.

I'll pass. Graphics from 2010 are apparently good enough for me

Yep. Not sure why gamers even ask this question any more, it's always the same. But whomever continue your hate for Steam, I also assume that is why Galaxy is coming, but then isn't that just Steam with a new name?
Galaxy has no DRM. At all. Not even optional for publishers to screw around with. No regional restrictions, no bullshit. Just a download client with benefits. Steam, on the other hand, is DRM with benefits

I don't know why developers/publishers don't offer a public beta test to everyone who preorders a game, whether on Kickstarter or at retail... The final release can only be better for it.
Because a project seldom profits from a public beta. Most, well, nearly ALL gamers dont know shit on how to report bugs or to make proper, valid gameplay & balancing suggestions. Most of them just want to play the game as early as possible and nothing more.

F2P and really high quality usually don't go hand in hand, especially when EA is involved...
Is EA involved with current Crytek? I think not. They only had a simple publishing deal for the Crysis games.

Do people really follow Tomb Raider enough to warrant making it "timed" exclusive for the xbone?
Of course not, but Microsoft is getting desperate. And making GTA a timed exclusive was a) too expensive, b) GTA 6 would be too late to save the Xbone.

Well it better be a damn sight better than VI all around or I'll finally be passing on this series.
VI wasn't a bad game. Just a bland, unnecessary sequel.

For the people who loved the Gothic games (1 and 2 at least), I wouldn't write this game off so easily -- especially after watching the "back to the roots" trailer. Definite buy for me.
You still believe in Santa Claus? This game is reported to be worse than Risen 2, which was a very great dissapointment for many Gothic fans, who hoped that the dev improved on the first game of the series. Instead they caved in to publisher demands, made the game "more accessible". Attemps in humor backfired, dialouge and story were bland and dull, combat was simply CRAP!!!! And now they made more of this. No improvements at all. NONE! Just a bunch of recycled assets. No, really, this is simply an addon to Risen 2, sold and marketed as a full price game.

You repeat the same thing in every topic. Is your life really so pathetic that you have nothing better to do than trash this game? We get it, you don't like the game. If you want to criticise something in particular that's fair enough but you're going out of your way to repeat the same flamebait.

That was a very, VERY lame rebuttal. Come on, you can flame and trash-post better, i know it!!!!

I give them 6 months.
Good guess. They have to close more studios, they have to cancel one or two current projects. Because they do not make revenue at all. There is no new game this year. Cryteks only F2P title is a flop. And they work on the next flop (another MOBA *yawn*). And they just switched the entire team for their coop title, delaying the release for at least half a year. The engine business failed. At the moment they will NOT make money for at least another year. Hell, they might even have to sell the Crysis IP only to cover the next months.

Crytek will not survive the next year.
