Tough crowd here, I thought it sounded interesting and will definitely check out the alpha/beta. They're trying something new for a change so I'm a bit dismayed to see people crapping all over them for it when thats what they've been demanding forever.

Yeah much ado about nothing there. Better off hacking a cellphone, why bother with a thermostat.

It's not like John Romero did something truly horrible to humanity. Now if only so much passion would be put towards actual real problems in this world instead of vilifying a game developer, 15 years down the road.

Sure but this is no different than movies, music or any other media industry. The public in general is all about what have you done for me lately. Even moreso for someone who made several public faux pas. As several actors have noted, you're only as good as your last performance.

Yeah id hasn't done much other than make great tech but you also ignore that he's had plenty of opportunities since leaving id but hasn't really done anything either. If he wants to sell a game again he absolutely has something to prove and I bet John himself would say the same thing.

There's certainly never been a better opportunity with crowdfunding and the large resurgence of the PC gaming market. I wish him luck, more games are always welcome.

Why do people who twitch use the worst music possible?

It's like a rule of streaming that the person will have awful taste in music that they want to force on the world.

Also the people who get access to games pre-release and stream it are always the worst players imaginable and make the games seem terrible.

Oh more than that. I bet it was easily a 100mil+ deal all told. They probably lightened that number with advertising agreements and whatnot but to give up sales on a potential 10+mil installed base platform they would have really needed to cough up. The TR reboot did exceedingly well on Sony platforms too so this is a pretty weird move. Maybe their agreement will allow them to do a Definitive Edition for all platforms a year later, that would be my guess.

News Comments > Steam TV and Film Support Hints?
4. Re: Steam TV and Film Support Hints? Aug 12, 2014, 11:55 Verno
 
I don't know if anyone noticed but the latest Steam betas are much faster than prior versions. The new renderer made a big difference. It is very snappy and overall much more pleasing to use. The music player is a minimal effort with no file listing play but it functions. Now if they could just work on the overlay a bit more, its often inaccessible while games load and etc even if the system itself isn't resource pegged.

I'm guessing the inevitable shitstorm will cause them to reconsider the exclusivity

They signed the contract already it seems, they put up a tumblr for damage control. I don't know they go back on that.

This is going to be ugly.

Geoff Keighley &#8207;@geoffkeighley 2m
Spoke to many people here at Xbox press conference on Tomb Raider. Official line is that the game is "exclusive on Xbox for holiday 2015."
https://twitter.com/geoffkeighley/status/499192318914998272

That sounds more like timed exclusivity but oh well.

Some of you need a reality check and maybe look yourselves in the mirror.

I don't personally care about him because hey, he did some dumb things when he was young, who here hasn't? That being said, an introspective look in the mirror over derision of a videogame developer? Mmmm no, that seems a bit overly dramatic.

Disastrous failure overshadowing success is nothing new in this industry or any other.

Does he deserve another chance? Absolutely. All he has to do is make another great game and I'm sure all is forgiven among the offended. Until then most people will remember him for the silly ads and various failures.

Anything on your smartphone can track your location! If you aren't disabling GPS on your phone, many companies far less virtuous than FitBit know where you've been

Even if you do that there are a plethora of other ways to get your location including wi-fi bouncing and cellular access points. You're better off obfuscating your footprint/profile so to speak.

Well yes, when you don't announce major policy shifts first that is a screw up. People had to discover it by themselves and ask wtf was going on. It's also a bit weird that it coincided with the google purchase. They should have just forced those videos off any monetization chain like Google does with flagged videos that aren't DMCA'd.
