Yeah, I'm just concerned that PCs are going to return to red headed stepchild status when things have been coming along pretty decently in the last year or two finally.

Eh, I don't think so. The barrier to entry on porting something is going to be extremely narrow now that the consoles are basically running PC hardware with a healthy amount of RAM.

That's not to say they are going to do it, or even do it right, there are still differences in control schemes and UI design, but the number of excuses about not doing it are actually going to be reduced.

EQN may sound great now, but what will the realities of game development and a reasonable launch time table do to it? I remain skeptical.

Very sad to hear about James. Seemed like a decent guy, and I can't imagine The Sopranos w/o him.

Fucking depressing...

Ugh, please no.

Seconded. Some token scary zombie level shouldn't be the direction of the franchise. We don't need more "survival horror" games.

I just keep thinking back to the Angry Joe interview where the guy grabs the mic and says "Really? It's as easy as flipping a switch? Were you on the development team, Joe?".

OMG... he WAS on the development team! :O

To be fair, it might be as easy as flipping a switch for Larry and Don, but the people who actually have to implement all this shit and have no say in the decision making probably now have a lot of crunch time ahead of them. All because these fucktards can't make up their minds. How much? Impossible to say without knowing their development process, but the bitch of development is that it is sometimes harder to remove something than it is to add it.

So, will EA try to go back to online passes now?



Considering they were publishing on PS4 without them, probably not.

Truth is Valve is the only AAA company doing anything good for gamers these days.

So you haven't purchased any non-Valve games recently?

Might also have something to do with more recent EU ruling on game sales/trading that Steam got hit with.

That ruling doesn't actually have anything to do with retailers online or otherwise. It says you have a right to transfer your copy (in the EU), and that developers and publishers have no legal claim to stop it, but doesn't mandate that third parties, like Valve, provide you a mechanism for doing so.

It'll be a cold day in hell before we see unrestricted "used" games sales on Steam. After 3 days, there would be enough "used" licenses in circulation to keep people from ever buying new. I mean who the hell is going to add a game to their Steam list for $50 when they can add it for $20-30.

Did you also see the restrictions that comes with it?
That's more like no sharing

And like I said, there are probably going to be a lot of restrictions on the Steam version as well. The odds of this being a free-for-all are slim to none.

It would be funny if even Steam would beat Microsoft over the head with the game sharing
Xbone the only system that doesn't allow you to share your games with friends!

Xbone announced game sharing at E3.

Anyway, I wouldn't get too excited just yet. Not until we see what the restrictions are going to be. I doubt it's going to be a free for all where every game can be shared, and I also doubt that they are going to permit people to game the system in such a way that you have massive sharing collectives where there is always a copy available and you never have to buy anything again.

I think the idea is that this game sharing will get people spending more time on Steam, and while they may not buy the game being shared, they may buy something else. There's a decent amount of money to be made in this idea I think.

But primarily it's just about keeping up with the Xbones and the PS4s, which let you share games.

Probably won't amount to much of a difference in the end. Nvidia and AMD have been going round and round like this forever, and quite frankly, you're fine with either company's cards most of the time.

For every game that has a problem with an Nvidia card, there's one that has a problem with an AMD card. You can't actually win, you just have to pick one and deal with it.

I didn't know we are only allowed to care about one game at a time! Well fuck me, I've been doing it wrong all this time.

Who cares about Wasteland 2 when the sun is going to turn into a red giant and bake our planet crispy?
