People pay to watch these people play games? Talk about a bunch of people with no life whatsoever.....kind of sad when you think of it.
NBA...NFL...NHL..MLB...PGA...and don't get me started on the kiddie teams.

Beamer nailed it. Just look at the comments in this one article...and Blues is relatively tame in comparison so some of the "drink bleach" diatribes you run across on other social media.

has valve had an original idea other than Half-Life in the last 3 decades?

it sounds ludicrous, but it's a serious question.
Narbacular Drop was an interesting concept but NOTHING like what Portal became. Team Fortress 2 is a total re-envisioning of the original Team Fortress. If you don't see the originality in those items then you should simply say that no one has created a new FPS since Wolfenstein 3D or RTS since Dune2.

"not refunding a game..whine bitch moan"
That's amusing. The last time I tried to get a refund on a "yet another broken game" was Star Wars Galaxies from Electronics Boutique in 2003. Except in particular circumstances, no one refunds on games anymore and hasn't for over a decade. And yaknow...the reason I haven't had "yet another broken game" since then has largely been because I don't buy games in beta. I don't buy games on release day, particularly when the company selling them has a known track record for poor releases.

Agreed, Valve needs to improve their CS experience...it is abyssal for the level of product that they provide. That said, some of the complaints in this thread are laughable and only illustrate that some people can win the lottery and constantly whine because they had to pay taxes.

Evolve is similar to Titanfall. It is a game with a fun, but very limited, gimmick.

She has some genuinely good point.... But if you follow her for any length of time it becomes obvious that she's more interested in self promotion and orchestrating a pity party for herself rather than her cause.

I hope Blues 2.0 has voting like on Reddit. That would be more fun than just ignoring trolls.

I'm in my 40's, play LOL when time allows and actually watch LCS on Twitch....so it's not just those damn whippersnappers. MOBAs are a great formula for competitive games from a variety of angles. They combine the tactical aspect of RTS, the twitch of FPS, and the feeling of actually playing as part of a team. There is a reason that they have become by far the largest flavor of competitive video games.

You do realize that this CG trailer was very likely outsourced and has nothing to do with the developers, right?
Sure. But if they don't care that the trailer looks like crap, and used it instead of gameplay footage....that does not bode well for the end product.

I had high hopes for the game....but I think that trailer sinks them.

Animation and models both looked very weak. It felt like the slo-mo was there just to cover up how janky the movements were. And why the devil does every single Genestealer have his ovapositor sticking out?

sigh.

EverQuest is primarily a PC gaming IP....and they want to concentrate on consoles. Maybe they're going to try to spin off EQN to help pay for the acquisition?

I'm kind of surprised at this move. I would have thought that Playstation, Sony Pictures, and SOE were the only profitable divisions left at Sony. Historically I only bought Sony electronics....but I took an about face on that one about five years ago. Similar quality at twice the price wasn't what I considered a friendly business model.

If all you are buying is the license then you can sell the license! The retards who love steam and online DRM can now eat shit because they like to claim "we don't own the game, we've only bought a license to use it!" Well if that's the case, we can sell our license!
With a great deal of software, you cannot sell or transfer a license.

what bullshit, of course they give this away for free now only so they can charge for it later. but of course it's ArenaNet, so it's to be expected. I bet they strip the BGM out of future titles only to sell as DLC. fuck LoL, they're the most evil fuckers in the industry.
....and this should be quoted for posterity. I'll refer back to it on every post of yours I see. Hipshot with zero knowledge.

I could see how it hurts their sales. I peruse the Steam store daily. I only log into to Origin when I want to play an EA game. I never peruse the store. You're losing a lot of impulse purchases that way.
This. Plus gimmicky gameplay.
Neither of those things are conducive to a huge long term playerbase. I wouldn't have bought it on Steam at release because regardless of the marketing hype, it was an unimaginative FPS trying to trade on the idea of big stompy robots. However...when it hit the 9.99 level and popped up during a Steam sale I probably would have picked it up just for an estimated 10 game hours of big stompy robot fun.

They coded it and marketed it to the ZING BANG WOW console crowd with no effort to develop a longstanding product. Once the next ZING BANG WOW title came out it started collecting dust. Think about how many of these types of games are popular for more than 3 months, let alone a year?

Then look at the people playing CounterStrike, WoW, Team Fortress, Diablo, League of Legends, Civilization V, etc.... Totally different design and approach.
