It would be pretty fantastic to have those a la carte streaming options, but when HBO/Showtime/Starz start bypassing the cable and satellite providers and direct selling streaming services... I can't think of anything that will destroy net neutrality faster. I wouldn't expect Comcast/Time Warner etc. to let go of their exclusivity so gently.

I know you just really want to be angry about this, and make sure everyone here knows how much you care that these people are taken to task (social injustice warrior?) but I think you missed the point of my post. It's not that I don't get it, I just don't fucking care. I don't read "video game journalism" as if such a thing could be anything but biased and utter nonsense...

You almost nailed it at the end. Call these people what they really are. Hypocrites, liars, bullies, frauds.

People around here get bullied all the time (the overall tone of your post would suggest you are quite a bit tone deaf yourself) for even mentioning or defending certain viewpoints. Blindly dismissing everyone as a "SJW" has been a trend around here and it should stop.

I'm excited that DA3 looks like it could be good... but I'm not naive enough to forget all of their fuck-ups that came before it... and blindly purchase their new game (especially at full price). They still owe me money (or gameplay...) from ME2/3 and DA2.

Shadows of Mordor looks pretty generic to me... Assassins Creed parkour combined with Arkham Asylum combat (now with more QTE!). Now that's... certainly not a terrible place to start... but again, not really getting the hype for what seems to be a game with few original ideas.

Yes, they really ruined those already terrible Tomb Raider games...

On what planet would it make any sense for them to spend $2.5billion and then completely alienate the entire playerbase for their game?

Let me know when the sky hits you.

What do you think they are going to do Parker? Go through 50million computers and phones and delete it?

Minecraft isn't going anywhere, and in reality neither was a sequel.

Who actually gives a rats ass about any of this? A woman no one was listening to lied about something... Something that either no one seems willing to admit they actually care about or are going to flat out dismiss as "SJW nonsense".

Can we issue a moratorium on the use of the term "SJW"? As if striving for "social justice" or equality is something that should be frowned upon and mocked?

The trend around here of stereotyping anyone with an opinion that even remotely sways from the white male dominated society we live in... really just makes you look ignorant.

BoI:Rebirth sounds fantastic and worth looking forward to.

Who is actually hyped about the release of another generic RPG with LOTR branding stamped on it? Or the complete letdown that is likely to be DA3?

Anyone even remotely thinking about purchasing DA3 anywhere near launch day for anywhere near full price needs to have their head examined.

It's not "like that" because they almost went out of business under that model (hobby electronics boutique) once already. Then they basically had to start selling the phones and headsets you don't like to stay open at all. They should have gone out of business more than a decade ago.

It's nice to say that one would go there and pay more if they offered "x or y" but... come on... you wouldn't. No one wants to actually go to a store if they can avoid it in any way.

As if a sequel to minecraft had any remote chance at the same level of success, regardless of who was programming it.

I don't understand why this is a big deal. "Minecraft" is not really going anywhere.

Trying to define something as a sport, or figure out what constitutes a "physical activity" is a waste of time. Sport is simply a synonym for a competition and it really doesn't have to be more detailed than that. OED and MW dictionaries make no mention at all of "physical activity" being involved in the definition at all.

Most of these things you are listing that you are competing in are games. Football, Basketball, Hockey, Baseball, poker, billiards, multiplayer starcraft, DOTA... these are ALL simply games. Some are physical, some are mental... but they are all direct competitions.

Things like Golf, swimming, running, racing are mostly activities or hobbies that can be done by yourself. They can be scored and ranked, but you generally have no direct involvement in the outcome of your opponent.

To me, this is where the crux is, and the line between games and activities/hobbies really lies.

They will think we are old senile fools for spreading such lies.

News Comments > Crytek to Repair Reputation with "Really High Quality Games"
15. Re: Crytek to Repair Reputation with Aug 19, 2014, 10:40 descender
 
One of the last updates to the Cryengine removed support for anything lower than DX11. I couldn't even attempt to run the evolve alpha on my second gaming rig/HTPC.

Fuck you very much Crytek. When you learn what the things you are supposed to deliver ARE, then you may have a shot. It's pretty obvious you are completely out of touch with what people want, though.

That console money, it ruins you forever.

I liked the concept of W1's combat, with different situational styles... the only real problem was the QTE implementation of it. Even after modding and patches, the combat in W2 never really clicked with me... and it felt like I was Rotfl fighting against controlling Geralt more than I Rotfl was fighting Rotfl the monsters.

Rotfl .

Somewhere between QTE/canned animations and rolling around all over the place to dodge hits... there must be an answer.

They certainly seem to have encapsulated all of the WORST things about multiplayer into one game. Kudos.
