A lot of people are selling their PS3s now after The Last of Us (which is also the last good PS3 game), so maybe Rockstar is too late? I'll be waiting for the PC version for sure.

The Last of us is a great CONSOLE game.

Is it just me, or was this first half of the year about the crappiest PC gaming experience in recent history. Aside from Dust I can't even remember a single game that wowed me. And maybe a mild "yay" for Bioshock Infinite for smart story and cuddly companion (and terrible shooter gameplay) and Metro: LL for great atmosphere and TERRIBLE SHOOTER GAMEPLAY (Boss-fights for soddings sake!)

Honor mention to Euro Truck Simulator 2.. which is the damned most stupid game I ever got addicted to. And I still love it... weirdly relaxing ;p

And 2nd Honor mentions to Farcry Blood Dragons and Brütal Legend ;p

But aside that, I was bored to death when it came to gaming..

PC gaming is dying, bro...

If you got Zynga stock, god help you but SELL!!!

"Zynga stock has soared 23% since the company introduced Mattrick as CEO."

Because we know this joker isn't going to save them long term. See the new boss, same as the old boss...

I have Zynga stock and plan to keep... it's finally going up now.

This fast an exodus means he was shitcanned for certain. Looks like he was planning for it anyway. Zynga and MS two companies that deserve the failure they've worked so hard to sow.


I would suspect he was given the option to jump, or be pushed. And in his position, jumping looks better for everyone.


Yeah. He was pretty much fired, they just gave him a parachute and let him do it on his terms.

As Beamer said, this to me was in the works for a while and looks as the E3 shitstorm was his final push to resign his shifts at Microsoft and go to Zynga. i posted WSJ link in other comments thread here:

Ahahahaha! Ho ho hee hee ha ha! Leaving my ass! He got shitcanned for sure. And why would Zynga want him? To help pick over the remains of its corpse? What a no-talent assclown!



If he got "shitcanned" he wouldn't have another job. I'm not saying he didn't deserve to be, or that the writing wasn't on the wall, or that he didn't go looking because he knew his time was limited, but I don't think he was fired here.

When someone is fired, there's a gap between employment. Here Zynga announced before Microsoft did, meaning Zynga poached him. And he's CEO and on the board, meaning they're most likely paying him a fortune (as was Microsoft, undoubtedly, but this is a position of more power. In a smaller pond.)

No way was he fired. But he likely jumped assuming he would be.

Apparently Mattrick was biking with Pincus already 2 months ago...

"In May, Mr. Gordon hosted a casual meeting at his house in Woodside to bring together their families. Mr. Pincus, brought along his daughters and his wife Ali Pincus, and Mr. Mattrick, a Canadian native, brought his wife to the gathering. After lunch, Mr. Pincus and Mr. Mattrick went for a bike ride, as they discussed what a partnership could look like and how it would work, this person said. During the courtship, Mr. Mattrick also spoke to Mr. Campbell, and other board members."

He wasn't fired as much as we like to think of him as such. He resigned probably for greener pastures, where he won't get so much internet hate from Sony fanboys and the like.

I guess this proves Windows 8 isn't meeting expectations. Trying to force upgrades via DirectX is lame. Hopefully developers skip DirectX 11.2 as a result. We had a story the other day about a developer losing big time going Windows 8 only - hopefully others will pay attention.

I'm pretty sure there won't be any software/hardware requirements for DirectX 11.2 spec, so nobody will force you in getting it.

Without story it's just an arcade game... it looks pretty decent though. But not sure in what way it resembles Quake 3 at all?

Give power back to the community!
Let us be able to map, mod and host our own servers. In the old days we had the power to set our own rules and if there appeared someone shady character, who cheated, he/she was instant banned.

It used to be laugh and jokes on the servers. Now it's just a damn chaos and kids screaming "noob" to the right and left.

Please id Software, give us the joy of gaming back!

didn't Bethesda (ID Software) release the Rage SDK Tool Kit, along with idStudio world builder near the beginning of the year? what has come out of that so far?

I've heard good things about SoD. I hope it comes out on PC.

And yeah, it's strange that it's been denied. The Aussies have made some films full of violence and drugs, much worse than these games, like The Loved Ones and Animal Kingdom.

Yes... please come out for PC!!

so the new DirectX 11.2 enhancements and features are basically just mostly for mobile tablets/devices, right? ...or are there benefits with DX11.2/Win8.1 for PCs as well?
