Leave it to Ars to defend a repeat child molester.

Eh, if the crime warrants life, stick them in prison for life. Regardless of what the crime is, you do the crime and you pay the time, and that time most conform with the Eighth Amendment. The idea behind most of our civil rights and protections are that the protections for the bad are a requirement for the good to be protected. Just like with free speech, free assembly, protection from unwarranted search and seizure, etc.

Video's gone. Only question is: Which does it more resemble: Rogue Spear or Vegas? If the answer is the latter it's not a title deserving of the Rainbow 6 name.

Keep in mind that Kojima is big in Japan first, US second. For Sony, Konami, and every other Japanese company that's invested heavily in Kojima specifically, that's a huge part of it.

yeh but hes probably pretty big everywhere.. i get that - im just saying that personally i dont think he's much of a rock star... just another japanese game dev from the great tradition of ultra-weird japanese stuff, which is not as big as it used to be imo

like the Suka guy.. i think theres a whole culture of rock star game devs in japan thats still going strong, unlike the USA where its just a legacy phenomena from the 90s

Sure, he's big everywhere, but so is Miyazaki. Doesn't mean that Japan isn't the core audience and motivation for either.

I have no hope for Star Wars BF...coop against bots

I miss bots. No bots, no sale. Otherwise I'm renting a game with a short lifespan when they turn off the servers.

? There are third party servers for all BF games.

Reminds me of a trucking sim I used to play on Apple 2e in class. Truckin' around California delivering and picking up goods. Was fun when I was 10.

i also never thought kojima was some kind of rock star.. but i think he does, and it shows quite a bit in his games

but then again, theres a reason for his grandiosity, because the games are damn good... they dont need 30 min cutscenes tho, that shit is retarded

i wonder what an MGS game without him would look like tho - probably some kind of generic bullshit, so thats kinda wack

Making Half Life: Episode 3 would have been dumb. Why make another "Episode" when the first two "Episodes" looked and played exactly the same? Why?

Episodes were meant to be shorter versions of the games. Episodic content. The problem is they took too long to release it.

I'd settle for a dev document with a plot synopsis at this point.

Release a L4D style graphic novel, a regular novel, an animated series... something. Just finish the story that we all invested in because it was good. Newell is turning into GRRM at this point

Joe Montana was superior to Madden back in the Genesis days.. little late to be reviving it, though. If they were going to revive a non-licensed game, why not Super High Impact Football?

Eve online isn't F2P. You can just purchase in game Pilot License EXtentions (PLEX) to pay your monthly dues in game. That's not a free to play model.

Are you required to pay to play? No. Thus, a F2P option is available. And it's really easy to make that much ISK.

Tipsy McStagger wrote on Mar 16, 2015, 14:49:

It was like playing a really shitty gundam type game. As in, was a horrible copy of existing games but did them half as good. Precisely why that game is getting "RELOADED".

And I'd say that's a judgment call. I didn't see that. There is very little in the PC space for arcade style mech games. The biggest arcade style mech games are Armored Core and Virtua-On. Virtua-On is long dead and Armored Core is console only.

The experiment of the F2P-Era is slowly dissolving.

Yep, TF2, League of Legends, DOTA2, EVE Online, and other games that thrive with free to play options are totally fading away.

Started playing MWO a long time ago and I like it... so would I like Hawken? I'm just unsure I want to learn a new game and start from scratch grinding again. Also need to know if 3D works fine.

Hawken is not a simulator. It's like Virtua-On meets Armored Core.

I don't know why games cost so much more in EU and AUS than in USA (my guess is it's to cover the cost of operating in those regions)

VAT tax, and because they can charge whatever they fucking want for it and get away with it.

And because Australia is isolated they just charge more. Them digital bits cost a lot to ship from EU/USA

Really wish it was 40k instead.

"Only in death does duty end!"

Quoted for yeah, me too.

Why in the hell AREN'T they doing a WH40K Total War, that's what everyone wants.

Demons striding across the battlefield eating humans, spaceships landing reinforcements...

Because we already have the best 40k RTS we could and we don't have jack for vanilla WH. I believe that we will get a 40k game in time, but the first target will likely be the IP that needs the most love.

How is that any different than at any point in Crytek's history? UE has always been one of the top licensed engines simply because of the support provided.
It once was considered a valid competitor to Epic. Several big projects used the CryEngine, last of them Evolve, but Cryteks licensing business never took off.

By whom? No one important, that's for sure.

After UE and Unity, the only valid competitors I'd consider are id Tech, LithTech, and Source(Gamebryo as well, but that's strictly RPG). id Tech is only one Bethesda published properties now, though I'm not sure that is by design. LithTech hasn't had a lot of recent games, but I see a comeback after Shadow of Mordor was successful. Source has been licensed continuously for about a decade for a number of projects, and Source2 was just announced, the latest of which is Titanfall. All of these have good documentation and support, and a history of success.

CryEngine, on the other hand, has a handful of known games, one of which is effectively a fork that's being developed on its own without CryTek, similar to how Source is a fork of Quake/id Tech 2, but mostly a lot of nothing, along with bad support and documentation. Yes, it's a pretty engine, but it had the same amount of chance of being a good commercially licensed engine as the Serious engine was.

I really think UE4 is doing that to kill competitors like Unity 5 and Cryengine 3.
CryEngine WAS a competitor. Crytek killed its own licensing business with a severe lack of proper documentation and underwhelming support.

How is that any different than at any point in Crytek's history? UE has always been one of the top licensed engines simply because of the support provided.

$100 for the ultra mega digital platinum collector edition. That said, I remember buying MK3 for the Genesis for $79.99 + tax at K-Mart in 1996 which, according to inflation, would be $111.02 before taxes so maybe I'm the sucker for not getting the $100 package.

Holy crap I didnt realize Genesis carts were that expensive! I never paid more than $59.99 for any SNES game that I can recall, never owned a sega console before though, besides a saturn I traded for a digital camera that took 3.5 inch floppies as film (some sony monstrosity..)

Genesis in general wasn't that expensive, but there were a few rare games that demanded a higher price

Conan had Beast Mode and Gronk play this on Clueless Gamer, it looked pretty sharp. Gruesome finishing moves though, and they made Beast Mode almost walk out.

I admit I didn't have a lot of interest in it until I watched their video. Though I still prefer the more 2d/sprite/animated style of the earlier games to the current dark and gritty look.


I wonder if it gives the artists that work on it PTSD. Probably not, but after reading that article a while back about the Facebook content sorters, I wonder.

What?
