Katy Perry has been solidly in "look, but don't touch" territory ever since she hooked up with Russel Brand... I don't even want to know what kind of nasty crap he infested her with.

Because they invented the obviously superior IW.net along with Modern Warfare 2. Basically they don't want to provide servers for millions upon millions of players, so they off-load it onto your peer's shitty machine/connection, instead.

And how do they know there aren't ghosts isn't a Flying Spaghetti Monster? Seems to me I haven't seen any solid evidence either way.


Fixed.

False analogy. People are energy, neither created nor destroyed, only transferred. We transition into something else, it's merely a question of what.

Worm food. You're missing the part where energy can turn into matter and vice versa.

The songs aren't a huge deal for me, but if I wanted to, I could re-install my original, now technically rated AO DVD version!

Ah, well, turns out it doesn't matter for me... Pulled the trigger on a GTX 970 last night and I already have my free copy of Far Cry 4. Not buying the other two, anyway.

Always this internet uproar when ubisoft or EA pulls something like this but the problem is people still buy there games/DLCs, The day people start speaking with there wallets then the companies might start to change for the better or maybe it is to late for that.

...and now that fucking rumor going around with Rockstar that they are gonna use some 'new' DRM.

It's new-ish, called Denuvo. It's been used in the last couple of FIFA games and most recently Lords of the Fallen. The company boasts of their success in avoiding being cracked for as long as a month and a half. People hate it because it uses CPU power to do what it does, reducing performance in the game.

Everyone is freaking out now, because all upcoming Ubisoft games have disappeared from the Steam store... FC4, The Crew, and AC: Unity. Was first thought to be unique to the UK region for wacky retailer deal reasons, but now it's everywhere!

Too bad GTA doesn't let you roll your own toon in open world. I'd have a lot more respect for GTA, if at the very least they let you play as neutral, if not a good toon.

Forced villain? Bleh... Shakefist

Erm, and what would you be doing in Grand Theft Auto, if you don't want to do anything illegal?

Arg. I don;t want to spend money on a PS4 version of a PS3 game with basically no differences, but I wonder if the PS4 version of Rocksmith is more stable? My PS3 copy crashes all the time and locks up the whole machine. Very irritating.

All your DLC transfers over from PS3 to PS4, which would be reason enough for me (outside of better performance, of course). But they also just announced next-gen players get the upcoming $30 Jimi Hendrix 12-song pack for free. So if you're interested in that, you might consider it a rebate of sorts.

First-person is going to be awesome!

NKD wrote on Nov 4, 2014, 15:47:
I already own and have extensively played the game on PS3. If the game had new story content or something, then that combined with the HD enhancements MIGHT make it worth picking up at full price, or if they offered me a discount for having already purchased their game at full price at launch. But as it stands now it's going to be The Corsair's Harbor and later a $10 Steam sale for me.

Your argument bases itself upon "full price" being some arbitrary measure of value, a cost that shall never be exceeded by any one game. That's just wrong... When their $60 game is better than every other game released in that entire year combined... Buying it twice is a pittance. No joke.

If you missed out on an epic gunfight in the savannah with wildfires raging around you climaxing in your rocket-propelled grenade plunking down to the ground five feet in front of you because of a mis-fire, creating one of the most unexpectedly awesome and compelling moments in your entire life as a gamer... I kind of feel sorry for you.

Lol, he's not a pro, he's a 20-year-old living with his parents... Divide that by ten and there's a good chance it'd still be more money than he's ever seen in his life.

i seriously doubt its changed that much since i played... its just fundamentally weak

What is weak and bad about it specifically?

gameplay and the depth of features ... its shallow and boring

graphics are shit too but thats not really my concern

That is not specific at all.

"What don't you like about that car I know nothing about, buddy?"

"The paint job and the engine! Duh!"

At this point, I have to think Blue is doing it ironically, calling every online multiplayer game that.

Basically what I want is for you to feel like your inside the walking dead (show) doing whatever you think it takes to Survive the constant threat of starvation, dehydration, survivor NPCs, and zombies.

I'll survive just fine if I hold on to my $20, you jobber. Nobody who leaves that in their official Kickstarter description can be trusted to follow through with a project like this...

Lol, I gotta go with Cutter here. Anything unreleased doesn't count. People are referring to Prey as some kind of "beloved franchise" and it's a bit disingenuous.

I just played for about an hour, and it's (still) a ton of fun. The only gripe I had is that when someone leaves and unbalances the teams, it ends the game in favor of the team with more players... Might just be an odd handling on the server I was on.

It's not exactly fair to judge player numbers on a Halloween Friday night, though... Especially since it has zero visibility on the Steam store (but the new NS2 skin pack has a spot on the rotator!). See how it shakes out after a few weeks, when the modding picks up and whatnot.

News Comments > Prey 2 Cancelled
24. Re: Prey 2 Cancelled Oct 31, 2014, 14:50 jacobvandy
 
Along the lines of "but why???" I have heard an interesting theory about this being the result of a failed hostile takeover of Human Head. Basically would entail that they were given a pretty shitty contract to start working on this sequel, and without any support from the publisher of course failed to deliver anything of the "quality" that was demanded of them within X time-frame. So then they're given an ultimatum, either have their project canned and be left with nothing or they "make a deal with the devil" and sign over their souls (ownership of the studio) in exchange for more money and more time to finish it. Human Head declines, game is cancelled, Pete Hines tells us nothing.

I saw some links to older stuff talking about this very thing, and what are purported to be other examples of Zenimax/Bethesda pulling the same shit on other developers: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/05/what-went-wrong-with-human-heads-prey-2
