Game of the year is Alien: Isolation for me, hands down. Doubt that this will be any better...

I believe they said you'd have to start a new game in this version.
Hmm well then I'll just continue since I'm too lazy to play all this stuff again.

I'm not sure what to make of the Alpha consoles. A quick look at the specs tells me they have low end parts (drive, ram) mixed with mid range processor and an unknown (likely mid-low range) GPU with only wireless connectivity (assuming here you can add an Ethernet adapter via a port, or it would be an instant no-buy in my book).

And the marketing is weird - they seem to be trying to pull in console gamers to a pseudo PC experience, even tho it really IS a low-mid range PC with Steam, a controller, and custom alternate UI.

PC gamers already can move and setup in the living room with big TV's, receivers, surround sound, and all that jazz if we were so inclined. I personally don't like to PC game in the living room (for a whole host of reasons), so SteamOS will have it's work cut out - I see it as more of an "additional" PC to just doink around on.

Who knows at this point...

But hey, I'm all for competition no matter where it comes from, so I'll be watching how these coming months play out.

If it's silent and can play all the console games in 1080p / 60 fps and more, I'm getting one. Never gonna get another ugly desktop...

Everything wrong with everything wrong videos:

They are stupid.
5 seconds of "research" on Google does not qualify you to give expert opinions.
Most of the morons making these are, well, morons. (Laura Croft, over and over when they pronounce it for you a million times in the game.)
Your opinions are just that: Opinions. And since you've proven yourself a moron by making an "Everything Wrong" video, your opinions are worth even less than the typical worthless ones.
Agreed, that video is a preposterous piece of shit.

They should finally ditch the historical settings and deliver a game in the sci-fi setting they are constantly teasing me with!

I think they are hesitant to embrace the modern era too fully because their current gameplay model straight up won't work with it. They'd need to design an entirely different type of game set around the same story.

They'd need to let you drive cars, and have you primarily use guns, since that's the weapon of choice for both Assassins and Templars in the 21st century. It'd basically just be Watch Dogs with an AC story.

That's my point. They'd have to be innovative for once...

Goodbye, Destiny. Going to be a long wait...


I only played it a bit. To Level 5 in single player, then 4 multiplayer games.

I'll say I'm not in love. I was immediately - upon receiving a weapon and going through the first fight all I could think was that the weapons felt good... really good. Delightful, actually.

But the actual single player left me a bit cold. I realize that my dream based on their description, you run around with your party and occasionally see other parties in the distance, was realized, but not how I wanted. I pictured a Halo type single player, more linear levels, that would occasionally crisscross and you'd see other parties, or even join them for a fight or two then go in other directions, as if they were doing different things. I realize now this sounds basically unpossible. But I didn't like what we got. One large area you keep going back to, with people running around like maniacs, some just screwing around, some doing missions you've already done, and some doing the mission you're doing. It didn't feel like a living world, it felt like an MMO. The bad parts of an MMO, the parts that make you see the same landscape over and over and over and over and make you feel unimportant because you're obviously doing the same things everyone else is.

Multiplayer was better. I did decently my first game, got destroyed my second game, led the third game and did pretty well my final game. The maps weren't as memorable as some of the Halo maps, nor did they feel as clean, nor did I like having default loadouts that make you play one way rather than the ability to run and pick up whatever weapon is needed for the situation you want to create (I'm never as big a fan of build based mp unless I can change that build on the fly.) Still, the weapons feel good and running around feels good so I'm ok with all of this.

I don't know. It's a beta so I can't fully judge, but it just felt like an incredibly solid FPS game with an MMO tacked on. Again, the bad MMO parts. Even 5 missions on the same Mother Russia level got tedious to me. I felt like I was just running back and forth from orbit to Mother Russia to do errands, occasionally going to the city to upgrade. Like in an MMORPG. I hate MMORPGs...

Exactly how I felt about the Singleplayer part, plus: enemies are stupid and "kill the boss" or "defend" to end the mission is quickly getting old. Hope they have much more in store for the final release (which I will not pre-order).

Played for 30mins, ended up being frustrated and bored. I would go into it with more depth but I just didn't enjoy this game at all. If I wanted a micromanaged adventure game with puzzles that are solved by luck this would be it.

The only good thing about the game is the pixelated animation
Just play it on easy mode. Way more fun.

Apparently it's not a true "point and click adventure" and more about grinding and micro management of resources.
It's more like a puzzle game, where you have to "fight" certain variables (hostage morale, incoming soldiers) with decisions while the clock is ticking.

How dare a company fire people! You should have your job until you don't want it anymore or are deemed incompetent! These evil fucks and their changing staffing needs.

That unimpressive hyperbole misses the point. That's a lot of fucking jobs lost for a company whose mistakes have arguably been management related. They certainly have the right to fire people but that doesn't mean people have to like it or that they can't criticize it.

Our corporate overlords demand that we remain silent and buy without question.

Seriously 18,000 people that's eighteen thousand people just got fired due mostly to both Nokia and Microsoft's incompetencey. Yet Microsoft's stock went up today. This is very wrong!

But
it
isn't
incompetency



It's like shouting at a mountain or something here. No matter how many times you point out that Microsoft isn't doing this due to their incompetency, people that haven't looked into it at all make that assumption and spew it all over the internet.

As usual, Beamer is one of the few smart guys around here...

They can blame that on Windows 8 and the Xbox One, two major products that are totally sub-standard.
ARRRG , NO, for the 1000th time, it's because they can't support all of the people from the Nokia takeover, of course there is A LOT of redundancy...

Also, 10% of MS's workforce... damn. That's a LOT of people...

That's what happens when you produce a tablet operating system and market is as a desktop operating system. OOPPSS!!

Yeah, but you couldn't be more wrong if you tried. To the point that your post is completely, absolutely wrong in every way, and just reading the article would show you that.

As the article says, Microsoft grew 25% when it bought Nokia, and many of those positions are redundant. They had to take on beancounters, but the thing with beancounters is one guy can count many, many beans, and do it from far away, so you don't need many. People like that, when companies get acquired, lose their jobs because they don't do anything that made the company worth buying and the buyer already has people ready to do what they do. For instance, Nokia has a big marketing team for the Lumia. Microsoft has a big marketing team for the Windows Phone. Many of those people do the exact same thing. They can't all stay.

As for "OOOPPSS!," well, yeah, Windows 8 hasn't been a huge success and many hate it. But Microsoft's stock is up since it was released. Here's the thing: cutting salary CAN be due to reduced revenues as seen in the stock price falling. Or it can be because you bought a new company and have obvious redundancies - people whose jobs literally no longer exist. Or it can be because a new leader took over and wants to streamline and change the way some things are done.

You guessed the wrong one. But that's kind of the problem with people that are solely consumers making huge assumptions without educating themselves, or at least reading the article. They see one thing and that's all they understand. You're the type of guy that would have thought IBM selling Thinkpad to Lenovo was a sign of doom because it's the only thing about IBM you knew.

Whoa, Beamer, you are one of the few smart persons around here.

Ever since before I tried the PC demo, I knew this was going to be overhyped garbage. Then I tried the demo, and it just solidified that sentiment. Once the novelty wears off, it's Just Another Mediocre Shooter™. Didn't offer enough originality or even fun to warrant a purchase from me. I'm surprised people still play it. :\
Well it was the first multiplayer shooter in years that kept me playing longer than 2 hours (20 hours at the moment). I needed that after the horrible, horrible experience I had with the last Battlefield games...
