Yeah, RMB for move forward crew 4 LIFE!!!

I still bind RMB to move forward in all first person and third person games. I guess I'm insane.

In my experience, votes seem to encourage the internet cheerleader/circle-jerk mentality. With systems like the one on this site, if you want to pitch in, you actually have to pitch in and say your piece, which I like.

Votes can work sometimes, but as has been pointed out, there's no shortage of crazies willing to upvote terrible ideas, or downvote reasonable ones.

I thought everyone already knew comment voting systems were stupid.

According to the blurb above, there probably won't be any reward for poachin' elephants.

The elephants even worked their way into the development team’s heart. “We don’t want to reward killing elephants,” Creative Director Alex Hutchinson points out. “Elephants are the only animal in the game you don’t get anything for killing.”

*drools* The sequel to my GOTY 2012....

Trunk animations really do look fluid; I could easily mistake that for motion capture if I didn't know better. I remember being impressed with the tackle animation of the tigers/leopards from FC3 so I looked into whether they had maybe used a domestic cat as a mo-cap substitute, but motion-capture never factored into it. An interview with one of the FC4 developers says the animals aren't mo-capped this time either (phallus or otherwise). Coulda fooled me. They even got the water trickling off the elephants when they're bathing themselves.

Probably going to wait until Christmas for this one. "One" More Turn: Beyond Earth is getting released first, so...

Somebody tell the CIA there's terrorists in England so we have an excuse to put UAVs up over there.
Advanced model starfighter pictures leaked.

I'm just amazed as many people as have been complaining were as vested in the gaming media as this. Lesson learned, eh? For the past six years, I've used a combination of friends and YouTube to get informed/hyped about upcoming or current releases. I rarely bother with formal reviews anymore - seeing some random player's spontaneous reaction to a game mechanic tells me boatloads more than most written pieces ever well.

What a mess. The interview reminded me why I ignored "indie" "games."

Interest in "indie" "games" before this debacle: 10/100
Interest now: 1E-77/100

Well this is really.. not surprising news

They should have made Fallout 4...

I'm not so sure ZeniMax actually has any control over that. Fallout games, and non-MMO Elder Scrolls for that matter, were developed by other studios?

Can Star Citizen make $60 million and announce their next stretch goal of producing schematics for working, life-size 3D-printed starships so we can whine about something else? Gawd!

Wow, 123 posts and going in one day! Did anyone register today just to post in this thread?

And I guess it'll be a while before next/current/what-came-after-PS3/360-generation titles become the norm. The rising development costs they mention probably mean the publishers aren't going to want the risk of an X-years payback period, where X is however long it takes people to actually start BUYING next/current/fuckit-generation platforms.

The reality is that Far Cry 3 was pretty demanding. It was one of the few titles to push my GTX680 SLI setup. It couldn't have been pushed much further given the PC hardware at the time.

This is true. I found FC3 to be graphically rich when I first played it. I didn't even notice the discrepancies between the trailers and the finished product until someone did that side-by-side comparison.

The only thing that bugged me about FC3's graphics was the pop-up, which was especially noticeable when using the hang glider. On the ground, where it wasn't as bad, I could lose myself in the environment.

If they get rid of the graphical pop-up for FC4, I think it'll be golden.

I was about to say fears about the trailers might be less founded this time around, given that FC3 had to run on last-gen hardware. But I just realized FC4 is coming out for last-gen platforms too. =/

I thought the reboot was solid, but they haven't even released any gameplay footage of the sequel so it's hard for me to get interested about it at this point. When I saw this announcement I was kind of surprised, but also kind of "meh."

I would be very surprised if the title stays exclusive. Pretty much the whole series has been multiplatform for the past seventeen years.

Another person who has to arbitrarily sign their name after each comment, despite the fact it's already in the top right corner every time.

Holy cow....he's right!

I'm glad that Crytek is apparently pulling through, but "gaming as a service" are not the words I was eager to hear from Yerli.

Reinsert the Master of Unlocking and it's all cool.

I'm also going to jump on the echo-train bandwagon and wonder why they haven't bothered with a RE2 remake yet. Still, I'm happy they're doing this, and even happier it's coming out on PC too.

I like that they had to send out an email beforehand. "Groping other people without their consent is not okay." Well gee, color me informed!

I'm getting the impression the creep/nerd ratio is higher than average. Pathetic.
