I watched the presentation. Basically it felt like they were trying to sell xboxes. At least the new changes seem relatively easy to ignore, so they didn't completely break gaming.

Nothing. It's not as good as Steam, but who can be? Steam has had a lot more time to better itself. People need to realize that we need Steam competitors if we want to keep seeing good prices.

Hasn't really been an issue so far. I agree in principle though.

Steam is a bit of an outlier since its not beholden to public shareholders.

I personally think that the deals are worse than they were a couple of years ago. I actually rarely buy games on Steam because the prices are too high. I get 90% of my games from Green Man Gaming. It's usually cheaper.

Shame it's on Origin.

They should change their slogan (do they have one?) to "Origin. Not Even Once."

Aside from it not being Steam what's wrong with Origin?

Oh sh*t. Everything Microsoft attemps to do is terrible. When they ignore things, they are OK at least. We are doomed.

Dunno, these specs seem resonable to me.
The delay sucks, but it'll give me time to play Dragon Age, so I can't say I'm too mad. Better this than to release a buggier game.

The Witcher 2 was/is an incredibly good looking game. The amount of detail was crazy. 6 GB seems pretty reasonable.

From what I understand, right now, it's only a competitive shooter with loadouts and microtransactions. Their idea is to make enough profit from it to work on the open world/survival/pve game.

Nice title Blue...

I picked up the remake a while back, and really did not enjoy it at all. Controls, mouse movement, it just felt off. Is it worth picking up the original?

I liked the original better. With that said, I doubt you'll enjoy it if it wasn't one of your childhood games.

Please let this be properly optimized.

Yher. not that they have made a single PC port that wasnt garbage performance wise. :-(


Thought people said the last Max Payne was decent?
Yeah, MP3 was fine in that department... but GTAIV... oh man, oh god

I HATED the controls in MP3. Overly complicated and weird as hell. The rest was solid though.

Good decision. You may not like the game, but freedom of speech should prevail.
I want my rape sim games on Steam!!
Tentacle Simulator 2015 almost made it onto Steam but got voted down!

Postal 2 is one of the best shooters I've played. Open world with tons of interactivity and one of the first games with havok physics. It's also incredibly obscene. I still haven't murdered anybody. If the game is fun(and I have time...), I'll play it.

In reality, it works the other way around. Poisoned minds tend to gravitate toward media that appeals to them. Media doesn't turn healthy people into murderers.
Exactly.
I've been playing violent video games since I was 7 and watching (as fucking stupid as it sounds nowadays considered) violent cartoons like Tom and Jerry or Bugs Bunny as I was growing up, but never ever considered picking up a gun and go on a shooting spree in real life. Even though I was bullied in high school for years.

Maybe I am the exception not the rule but I personally don't see how a movie or a video game can turn a normal person into a murderer.

Same. Played violent games and watched violent movies all my life. It's rare to find a person as peaceful as me. Violence is never the answer to solve problems in my life.

I usually love sandbox games, but there are some that I don't like because they're too empty and aimless. To me so far, it seems like the latter.

First review confirms my fears IncGamers review

I think it's a complement to the game that it leaves you wanting more, as it is in its current form I think it represents what the initial goal was which was to create an updated version of Elite.

Even in the unlikely event that they just continue to fix bugs and hold off on adding more content there's more than enough of a game here to enjoy for quite a long time.

Perhaps it's down to some people mentally adding up all the grandiose promises of Star Citizen and comparing them to Elite that are not satisfied with what's on offer, Star Citizen is still just an idea and Elite Dangerous is a game you can play today.

In my case it has nothing to do with Star Citizen. Some sandbox games just don't keep my interest. But I can't help comparing Elite to Freelancer, which is what I use as a gold standard for a coop space sandbox.

There's a really great game concept here and Day Z doesn't look like it is going to deliver. Maybe this will be it. The Forest is the survival game that looks most promising but it's single player only so not the same.

I haven't tried all of the games in the world, but I think that 7 days to die is the best one. I must've played a hundred hours. It has a strong pve element.

Is it truly that expensive/difficult to create some decent graphics for new games? My curiosity at a new game is instantly killed by these crappy graphics. Eye-candy isn't the most important element to a good game, but it is hard for many people to get into games with such unpalatable graphics.

If you don't like the graphics, that's fine. But a lot of people enjoy pixel art, and don't find this crappy at all. Rather good, in fact.

It's like playing Madden and complaining that the focus is on nothing but gaining yards, and how come you can't unlock a single usable gun in the game.

Also yes. Yes, it's expensive and difficult to get good graphics in indie games.

My backlog is, so far, winning the battle this year. Usually I buy stuff even though my backlog is ridiculously long. This year seems to be different for some reason. I have less time to play than in previous years, so that is probably part of it. I have some really well reviewed games in my backlog, which is probably a bigger part. I haven't played Dishonored yet, for example.

I don't have time to play games anymore... It's actually starting to affect my mood...

seems to me you are living your life for pretty much anyone, except yourself and if you notice it affects your mood you should act. You don't need to do anything drastic, but 1 hour a day for your hobby/hobbies is the minimum. Take that time and MAKE that time. A hobby you enjoy will help you counter stress.

Thanks for your concern :p I'm fine, don't worry Sorry for hijacking the thread.
