PS4 will not play MP3s, will not support connecting external storage such as flash drives, and will not stream media from other devices like your PC.

Hate to do it, but I think I might be switching to Xbone. I don't like having a lot of devices hooked to my TV and a lot of remotes floating around, so I need one box that can do it all.

Unfortunately that's the Xbone. Fuck.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Layoffs are a necessity, and the people who get laid off should be the ones you don't need. And generally companies aren't overstaffed with executive positions.

Feel free to explain this to little Susie and Johnny as their family goes on food stamps; meanwhile, they see other kid's parents (the same executives who fired mom or dad) driving BMWs.

Yes, let's never fire anyone because it might mean temporary financial hardship for a family which might not be understandable to a five year old. You have great business acumen sir.

If you have more workers than you need, then yes, the problem is the workers.

Sounds like a management issue to me.

It's the nature of the beast. Software companies, especially games, have erratic staffing needs as projects come and go. There's little anyone in management can do about that.

When one executive makes more than the rest of the workforce combined the problem isn't the workers.

'...financial discipline...' is EA code-speak for 'laying off whole teams'.

Implying that big layoffs are never the right decision?

One more body added to the pile of EA acquisition closings. How long will it be before BioWare suffers the same fate?

Victory wasn't an acquisition, they founded the studio in 2010.

Is this related to that trailer we saw a year ago that said bioware was making it? I'm confused, were they making two c&c games or are they just pretending this has nothing to do with bioware now?

Same studio. They were a new Bioware studio, and then they renamed them.

Cancelling this crap and going back to the drawing board rather than shoveling some stupidity out the door? That's good. Sorry to anyone who lost their job though.

Unless I'm forgetting a title, Deep Silver hasn't had anything out of the ordinary for DRM for a while now, and have even gone back and removed DRM from older titles on Steam like Sacred 2.

News Comments > Quoteworthy - Infinity Ward: Many COD Players "Aren't Gamers"

He raises a good point

We all know there are a lot of people who basically just play COD, or just play Madden, or just play World of Warcrap. Yes, technically they are playing a game, but in the same way someone plays a Facebook game or something on their cell phone while on public transportation. They aren't gamers, they don't identify as gamers, and eventually they'll stop playing even those games when their popped collar wearing bros go to doing something else.

How are the boss fights? Much improved, as reported?

Barrett, for example, I was able to get away, go through some vents, hack a garage door open and hack some turrets hidden in a storage locker to be on my side, set them up, and let them handle him.

I also saw a punchable wall in the storage room with the turrets.

Nearing the end of a Directors Cut playthrough. Well worth the miniscule asking price.


Holy crap, have you been playing around the clock?

Not really, but I've beaten the game several times already so I'm virtually speed running the thing.
