That was really underwhelming. Felt like a very "safe" showing when they should have been swinging for the fences. No Halo 5 showing was surprising too, the Halo HD collection on the other hand not so surprising.

On the plus side no TVTVTVTV and Kinect nonsense.

If this guy ever moves beyond a one hit wonder and establishes himself as a real designer with some longevity I might give him some credence. The reality is so far he's a punk who got lucky once, so no.

Your bitter jealousy is apparent in your post. He got lucky to the tune of many million dollars. I think all of us could stand to have some of that "luck". If the number of hits is a yard stick for success then by your own words most developers are total failures by comparison.

I know a lot of people who just play MMOs as time fillers and don't even seem to derive much enjoyment from them. Sometimes I think "well just play something else!" but I do the same thing with ARPGs so who am I to criticize?

Crackdown 3 announcement expected tonight.

Ugh why? The first game was a fun bonus to getting that old Halo 4 beta or whatever. The second game was completely uninspired and the gameplay did not age well. I know they own the IP but I can't believe its worth that much anymore, the second games sales were quite tame and Microsoft would have been better off funding something new.

The NFL operating as a non-profit is still pretty amusing.

Look guilty? He IS guilty. He broke the law. He's not a "traitor", but he's definitely a coward. He had a great opportunity to stand for something bigger than himself and be a symbol for what the people want. Less intrusion. the vast majority of Americans were outraged by what was/is going on. He blew it for himself and for everyone else, tbh.

I don't know, if you look at how past whistleblowers have been treated by the government and the scope of what he broke info on I can totally understand fearing for your safety and fleeing. The deck is loaded against whistleblowers, the protections are inadequate and the legal reprisals can be significant, that's without getting into the grey area shit the government can get into. Maybe he wasn't thinking about his place in history and was instead worrying about the safety of his family and himself, a pretty human thing to do.

I think it's really easy to criticize his convictions and courage but putting myself on the other side of it I can easily see why. How many of us would do any different? He's not exactly living the life of luxury either. Being exiled to Russia away from friends and family potentially forever is pretty significant.

I think he should have stayed but at the same time I can't really blame him for not doing so.

a nazi sympathizer

should i even bother to ask?

Dude was downplaying the Holocaust and playing up the benefits of the Third Reich in a previous thread. I believe the context was he wanted a game where he was a Nazi hero.

Hahaha at least hes cast off any semblance of being a legit poster and just gone full troll.

Shit man, truth hurts, huh?

Back on ignore you go until you grow up!

"be quiet facists, I'm going to censor you!" LOL. You have zero introspection.

I'm not the one trolling for attention on D-Day BTW. Ignore is pointless but feel free, it won't stop me from pointing out when you're being foolish and someone else will inevitably quote it anyway

Been using DualShock 4 for months. With wireless.

Does XB1 pad really have so little appreciation that nobody has it working on PC?

It uses proprietary encryption on top of Wifi-Direct so no one can get it working without an adapter, likely one they will sell for $50+.

Also the bumpers on the Xbox One controller suck.

Eh I don't know. I can see myself using VR on a regular basis but only for certain genres of games and the tech would have to be affordable. VR has so far to go and there is a lot of potential for entirely new genres to open up but the early teething is going to suck.

Wtf is with you lately? You're being real dickish to a lot of people of late. You trying to pick fights? We can go there if that's what you want.

Haha come on, that's like most of what you do on this website dude and the internet toughguy talk/swearing doesn't impress anyone

JD is one of the most laid back people here by comparison.

I'm not disagreeing about the problem, i'm saying that wearing a 2nd tin foil hat is about as useful as its going to get as far as todays 'endeavor' go. Unless you want to completely disconnect from the internet, these are the way things are going to be, whether they are right or wrong.

I disagree, sounds like giving up without even trying. Secure chat clients and messaging, encouraging the use of encryption more in services that typically don't use it, educating people on how they expose their data across devices and so on is all important stuff. The hardest part of improving security is distilling information to people and even just more awareness is worthwhile if people take nothing else from the campaign.

Its naive to think that a superpower (some might even call it the last superpower) would give up a tool as profoundly powerful in today's internet age.

Uh they know they won't, the campaign is as much about education and showing people how to make it as difficult as possible. Do some reading on it.

What does the tinfoil hat comment mean? We have indisputable evidence of widescale surveillance across several different communication mediums. We're well beyond people being paranoid now. The government doesn't care about your gmail or pornhub activity but guess what? They will collect the info anyway in case it can be useful in the future. If there is no value to private data then they wouldn't bother going to such extremes to collect it.

I think its a worthy effort to make it as difficult as possible and a campaign that helps the average person and makes them more aware is exactly what is needed.

All you stupid kids should know that network problems (lag etc) can only be solve by fixing the network. no netcode in this world can fix the problem caused by problematic network.

This is such a bad post on so many levels. Yeah because everyone playing the game has "bad network", hahah.

in fact, there are no good or bad netcode. only good or bad network.

You really have no concept of what is being discussed here apparently. You're the guy with a Killer NIC who thinks disabling windows services saves him a lot of memory too I bet.

External storage is a legit good feature and Sony needs to get on that. Internal replaceable isn't the same thing at all.
