Jesus they really need to start packing these on blurays (for PCs).
Yeah cuase we all have bluray roms.

And we all had DVD players when they started selling games on DVD, right? And we all had CDROMs when they started selling games on CD, right? And we all had 3.5" floppy drives when they started selling games on 3.5" floppy drives, right? They can do both. It just makes sense to migrate to Bluray over time for physical media.

Like it or not, I think that network only (no console) gaming is going to happen. I think all there will be in the future is cloud based gaming...and taking a small pill that transmits your neural responses wirelessly to .... THE CLOUD! Of course once my brain waves are transmitted to the cloud...the police will probably be showing up very soon afterwards

You're a few generations early. PS9 is the first one with mind spores.

So the PS5 will just be a box that streams games from a central server?

Eh, more for demos and the ability to stream your PS5 elsewhere, just like you can with your PS4 and Vita

My guess is that this video isn't showing max settings but rather highlighting 60 FPS.
Of course it's showing the highest setting, it's a promotional video. The reality is that it's a one-and-a-half year old console game that's been ported to PC. It was never a good looking game and Rockstar really doesn't give a shit about PC gamers.

It's also on an updated GTA4 engine.

I'd love to know what sort of a hardware you'd need to get the kind of details shown in the trailer running at 1080p-60fps.
I doubt my GTX760 will cut it.

On one side, it's the GTA4 engine, so it's not pushing any limits that weren't already pushed.

Secondly, though, and probably more importantly, Rockstar has historically done a very poor job of PC engine optimization, requiring much higher specs than expected to make up for the deficiencies in the engine.

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.

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

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.

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.
