Shoulda had him play the NEW ONE and tell them wtf they went wrong..

He liked DXHR so I think you'd probably be disappointed. Here's what he had to say on reddit a couple months back.

I think people expect me to be pissed about new Deus Ex games that I'm not making but it's really not like that at all. I'm just excited (thrilled might be a better word) that I was part of the creation of something that's bigger than myself, that has a life of its own.

What did I think of DX:HR? Well, for starters, I don't finish a lot of games and I finished DX:HR. That'll tell you something. When I DID finish it, I kinda sat back and thought, "Wow, I just had a Deus Ex experience." It sounded like DX and felt like DX. It was pretty cool.

The Eidos Montreal guys made some design decisions I wouldn't have made, but overall, I was really pleased.

What he doesn't mention is that the game isn't possible WITH crowdfunding either.

There's a lot of ignorance about reddit coming from people who never really used it or just took a cursory glance at the default subreddits. But, reddit is pretty solid for gamers.

/r/games has some of the best game related discussions available on the Internet. (Don't confuse it with /r/gaming which is just a terrible place filled with memes and Nintendo fans.)

Plus just about any game anyone is playing has a game specific subreddit where you can discuss stuff. Generally these subreddits are on par or significantly better than the general community playing said game. There are helpful links, active moderators (i moderate a few gaming subs myself...) who keep out shitters, etc.

The voting system can be flawed but in the gaming subs it's generally pretty good. Contrary to popular belief you're not going to be downvoted into oblivion for merely having an "unpopular opinion."

Tact is really important in the smaller subs. The communities there are often made up of a lot of people who don't post anywhere but a few small subs, and don't take part in the larger reddit community, so they have different standards. You can have an unpopular opinion and get upvoted a little bit (obviously you won't be swimming in upvotes) or you can post a popular opinion but be a needlessly rude fuckhole about it and see your post buried at the very bottom where a user has to click a button to see it.

Honestly the gaming discussion on reddit, provided you're visiting the right subs, is about a thousand times better than anything on Blue's News these days. I spend most of my time commenting there these days, because you can get actual conversation, and generally speaking pretty quality moderation. It's not some fascist stupidity like NeoGAF or SomethingAwful, but it's also not a completely unmoderated barren waste like Blue's.

I think he lost his head. Or maybe a distant relative did. That's the only dude I've ever put on ignore. Glad to not have been mistaken.

Almost seems a waste of a spot on the ol' ignore list considering the guy has posted less than 150 times in the 15 years he's had an account.

Yeah... wait... nope. Looks like most of my Steam catalog would no longer run if I switched to Linux. Windows 10 it is.

That's sad about Mike. He lost his son about 2 years ago, who was killed in action in Afghanistan. Now he's gone too. Tough couple years for his family... RIP

As with anything, follow the money. Compare who is bankrolling Bernie vs. who is bankrolling Hillary.

I'll give you a spoiler: It's banksters for Hilary vs. trade unions for Bernie. While coming from a union family I've seen the downside to trade unions, it's nowhere near the level of scumfuckery the banksters perpetrate.

Warcraft movie isn't giving me much hope so far. For three years in a row now they've refused to put these trailers and footage they show online.

What are they hiding?

On the one hand, you wouldn't expect something like this from USA Network, primarily known for its Pro Wrestling programming..

USA has been producing decent scripted original series for about 15 years now.

Monk
Burn Notice
Psych
In Plain Sight
White Collar
Covert Affairs
The Dead Zone
The 4400

I'd say it's known a lot more for these shows, and its copious amount of syndicated re-runs than for wrestling.

Can you name a triple-A MMOlike with Star Citizenís feature set (even its early, trimmed-down feature set), and its visual fidelity that shipped in under three years?

Can you name an MMO that after three years only had the early workings of an FPS no one asked for, a small space for you to fly a few ships around in, and no sign of any persistent world? I can name a few that didn't have a persistent world to show after 3 years, some even longer, and none of them ended up being that great, or have yet to even release.

The mental gymnastics are strong. His analogy to MMOs only works if you include MMOs that turned out to be shit or never met their original goals. Every successful MMO had a lot to show after 3 years post-announce.

A lot of games with 1/10th the ambition, a more focused design, and twice the budget have failed to thrive. Why does anyone doubting Chris Roberts' ability to pull off a miracle get labeled a "hater"?

Anyone who truly believes this game is going to deliver anything even close to what was originally promised is believing in a very long shot. I'll tell you one thing, when I bet on a long shot, I don't go around telling everyone making more sure bets that they are being unfair.

I wonder what their motivation is for attacking these gaming companies.

For shits and giggles, and sometimes because people pay them. In this case, it was because Daybreak CEO John Smedley made a post about how he thought that Finnish shithead who got a slap on the wrist for a massive DDOS should have gotten a more severe punishment. So of course his perma-virgin haxxor buddies had to take a break from jerking off on their anime body pillows in order to fire up another DDOS.

Just goes to show you that Internet outrage doesn't necessarily equal financial ruin for companies. Granted, they didn't really ship much in that quarter so we'll see what happens when their next big title ships.
