This is one major reason why gov't is big and why business wants a small gov't. Never forget.

Every company wants a monopoly, that is what they want, it is natural for them to want that, having a monopoly is the ultimate way to maximize any companies profits. And because any company has a fiduciary responsibility to maximize shareholder profits. It is natural for any company to try to form a or gravitate towards some type of monopoly. And that is why the US has laws to prevent that type of thing, because we know it is inevitable.

But, but, but ... capitalism!

Those Activision tools were bragging about how their franchise was the greatest at $10B. Well Star Wars made $37B, so suck it Activision.

Ahh nothing like a night of tequila or mescal to get you all sideways!

Well, it's either drink or ski in the winter up there, and drinking is a lot cheaper.

Well if you were stuck on a tiny barren island in the north Atlantic where it was dark half the year, you'd probably be messed in the head too. The lack of vitamin D alone would mess you up.

I play eve on and off every year or so. But I only play bot missions, I stay away from PvP, and thus my character has never died or been cloned lol. They should do a European version of the trailer with the voices of all the other countries that play that game.

When I played several years ago, this was how I played, and I enjoyed it for a few months. The new graphic engine is pretty gorgeous, and I can see that for people who like this kind of game (basically PVP raids) it must be pretty fun. It's been around a long time and shows no sign of slowing down.

I have to say, this is the best Eve trailer yet. Maybe it'll help people understand a little bit more why we love it so much.

That was much better than the pre-rendered crap they make.

Cut the cord 10 years ago and never looked back. Better for me better for the kids. There's so much to do that I only watch about an hour of TV a day on average anyway. Netflix is plenty.

Just make all tournament machines remote VMs. Then you control the hardware and software and the only advantage is ping. Like the old days.

Proof that publishers were correct dumping double fine. They are don't have their shit together.

How does a publisher backing out of a project prove that? Games get canned all the time.
I think it's the totality of all the screw ups that give that impression.

It's a one day demo sort of like a little trial you would see on Steam. It's shittier because Microsoft tends to do everything shittier unless dragged kicking and screaming. The game is doing poorly because its creative on a platform with demographics that mostly just want bro FPS games and racers. Being exclusive to the Xbox One probably isn't helping either.

Oh, derp. I get it now. Thanks Redmask. It's free for a day. Like a Steam free weekend. Somehow I read it as they're giving away the game free this Saturday, like to keep forever.

@ John & Cutter. Go read the article I posted. For an off the shelf unit, it's not that bad for $549. Runs most modern games at 60FPS.

I could certainly make something better myself for the same amount of money, but it's not a total rip-off either.

Lost me at "Multiplayer"

SP career mode???

I believe they are mutually exclusive. The sentence is worded weirdly where it sounds like dynamic career mode and multiplayer is one of the same, but I seriously doubt this is the case.

Steam page shows it has single player.

It's doing very poorly in sales, they're trying to flog some life into it.

So they give it away, free? I wonder how that's going to work out for them. It's not like this is a solely multiplayer game where giving it a good user base will increase sales. I'm not really seeing the end game here.

As for sales, it's getting good reviews and word of mouth. Wonder why sales are poor? Maybe bc it's exclusive to xb1?

Hahaha, still convinced that this is Era is like gaming crash of the 80s, in the form of predatory micro-transactions and terrible F2P games.

Pretty soon we'll be playing single-player games where you have to insert coins to play the rest of the story.

As a 38 year old who lived through the 1983 crash thanks to Coleco, ADAM and tiger handhelds: No. No it isn't.

The difference? 90% of gamers out there willingly lap up the DLC crap without question. For every moral high-grounder like us that decries it, there are a few dozen others that click the "add to cart" button.

I largely agree. The industry was much more nascent and unstable back then. Today it's established multibillion dollar industry that is displacing traditional forms of entertainment like movies and music. Whatever happens, it's not going to crash out. You should be more worried about movies and music since the internet is massively undermining their business models and they haven't quite yet figured it all out yet.

Also, dude, you were like 7 or 8 in 1983. You remember all that?
