Luv how the Kickstarter honchos are painting themselves as holy holies, while their system perpetrates scams like Star Citizen and other "early access" type games. I don't see them requiring the users of the site to post information frequently like stocks have to. They have essentially created a stock market with virtually no rules or regulation, so slick guys can soak many for millions.

I understand your beef with star citizen but the regular AAA game world is a just as much a disaster. DRM'd games out the wazoo, encryption, the fact they are trying to get games encrypted and stream them from the other side of the net.

Star citizen seems benign compared to the push by the big companies to take away our rights completely to own anything.

mordor is super duper short.. shortest game in recent memory

its open world but it doesnt even have tons of side shit.. handful of main missions, handful of side missions, handful of collectible BULLSHIT... thats it
What? I played the main quest and did most of the "side shit" and racked up 40 hours of play time. It's not short.

It's short because the time wasted travelling is filler, aka traversing the map eats most of those hours.

Ad-blocking is theft now? Really??

Yup. Just like piracy.

Piracy is different, you're taking something that took the creator effort to make which is also normally charged money for.

Except that corporations stole the public domain and made all sorts of corrupt IP laws, thereby disqualifying themselves. Corporations calling gamers pirates is like The mafia calling everyday citizens thieves for trying to protect their rights to own the shit they buy.

Consider all the broken and defunct games and the confiscation of videogames from mmo/f2p/drm'd games. A whole period of game history will just disappear down an IP black whole because most people are too stupid about their rights and how corrupt the world really is.

I'll wait and see, I hope the editor isn't gimped. If the game is locked down that would explain why they are pimping the editor, aka no importing models or modifying the game. If the game has matchmaking and is locked down its game over for the multiplayer.

<sigh> I miss QuakeCon, not that I ever went. I miss the era when id was the unquestioned ruler of the FPS, and their games just dominated my life.

Ruler? Hardly. DOOM and Quake were good no doubt but there was ton of other FPS' that were much better. iD was never really much more than tech company.

Doom 2 LAN was amazing, quake 1 wasn't that great single player but multi it was good, it was one of the first internet games so people remember it fondly alongside games like Warcraft 2 and Descent2 over kali/kahn.

Either way during the mid 90's duke 3D, unreal and quake were the fps to get. You're misremembering the past there. iD's downfall started after quake 3.

Rules? Have we lost the notion that The People have inalienable rights? Rules that protect people imply that rights are not inalienable but are granted under their graces.

Previously there were no clearly stated 'rules' while they secretly violated our inalienable rights. So human rights don't matter? Only the rules and regulations count?

Under the new guidelines, agencies will have to delete data collected from phones outside of the one targeted within 30 days

Oh, now they're 'guidelines.' Oh now I feel safe and so free!

They fear political awakening. All our rights are null and void before the fears of former national security advisors and the upper class generally.

D3 is the best ARPG since Sacred 2, IMO.

This is actually a sad thing when you think about it, given that many of us hated what they did to the world of diablo and how the game doesn't even really feel like a sequel to the first two games from a game world point of view. It's like diablo alternate universe. The whole game feels like really bad fanfiction.

Reality is there is no truly great ARPG yet, Path of exile was close but the whole item/economy is weird and the stupid net issues.

Right there with ya. Started with the Monster3D from Diamond and then the Voodoo 2's from them. I think my first card that replaced the Voodoo 2 was the Nvidia TNT card.

It really wasn't until Geforce 2 that 3dfx went to shit, that and them buying STB instead of remaining a chip company. That really fucked up their company trying to distribute their own boards.

There's a sucker born every minute, aka there's constant fresh replacement of kiddies being born constantly who don't have the history of battlefield behind them. So they wouldn't know how shitty bf has become.

Steam likes being the biggest kid on the block by a large margin.
Which it is. Regarding those Steam numbers ... can you imagine how small the customer base of Origin or Uplay really is? I wonder if Origin and Uplay are kept alive because the board simply wants to be present on the online distribution market. And not because they make a decent profit.

It's all about control of the market via online only games/drm. Consider how infected most new games are with online requirements. Basically the idiot masses have handed everything the corporate world wanted over in spades. People are fucking are idiots.

I'd hope that the majority of PC gamer's have given up on any title where the majority of gameplay consists of grinding for gear that lets you grind for better gear.

Note that when the mechanic was originally introduced (long before MMO's were a thing). It was new and refreshing, the reason why it survives is the fact that most gamers will play anything even if its shit to pass the time. They will fork over money for bad games because largely the masses are idiots.

What do you think league of legends is? It's a sign of the times. Mainstream = the average human being = stupid.

It baffles you as to why Steam would keep it private that less than 1/5 of its userbase actually buys games? They want people to think they have 10M customers.

The reality is not how many people don't buy games, the reality is game developers have been making shitty games for people that suck at games (league of legends, dota 2). Quality hardcore games like Hard reset, Shadow warrior 2013 are rare.

Games that used to be hardcore like battlefield, etc, have basically lost quality. The reason the gaming public doesn't buy as many games is because games that are being released aren't buyworthy and definitely not buyworthy at full price when its stuffed with DRM.

I really despise how developers complain about shitty sales and they are either 1) a one man/few man indie shop or 2) are totally money grubbing DRM/F2P asswipes.

The reality is steam has made it easy for developers to release shit to the gullible half of the internet community. I pretty much only buy games on gog and anything I deem noteworthy that is of AAA quality I get for less then $10, since paying full price for steam / DRM infected games is bad news.

Developers really need to get their heads out of their asses and make better games and release on other platforms besides steam like GOG. I am a huge fan of the hard reset devs, flying wild hog. They are one of the few last traditional developers that give a flying fuck about 'real gaming' as it was in the 90's.

Its a symptom of deeper issue - the mindset of a socialist society.

Man where do you get this shit? This is the result of the capitalists protecting the capitalist system you idiot. It has nothing to do with socialism. Capitalism naturally evolves into a totalitarian society because of technology and big companies natural tendency to become monopolies or private authoritarian and autocratic kingdoms of commerce under which the peasants labor.

See this by former national security advisor of the US.

Only the past 5 years has gaming become boring.

Reality was gaming became boring around the 2000's when all the big developers moved from PC to console and dumbed down permanently. Halo 1 was originally supposed to be a PC game and they basically gimped it for console land, everything we had in quake and unreal was lost with the rise of console first person shooters. We're only slowly starting to see a trickle of more traditional fast paced shooters 15 years later.

The likes of Hard Reset, Shadow Warrior 2013. I pine for some future day when someone remakes duke 3d well with all with modern slicked out graphics even if I know its not likely.

Gaming stopped going places when budgets rose to insane degrees and team sizes ballooned.

Uhh no, whenever you see "streaming" you should hear "we are going to never give you games to download again, one day all entertainment will be in the cloud and you will all pay us $$$.

They are just trying to perfect DRM and the end of game ownership via bs strategies.

Tragically enough all the shit that has been unleashed upon us over the last 15+ years is only possible when these fuckers are 100's of miles away and can't get smacked the moment they pulled their criminal bullshit. The "market" doesn't work when buyer isn't within asskicking distance to make sure the transaction stays honest.

The problem with PA was just the developers are out of ideas, RTS has reached a point of pure stagnancy and to get it over that stagnant hump is going to require a budget many times that of the original PA.

Yeah cos you know money leads to ideas and loads of money leads to fucking awesome ideas. Rolleyes

Not saying ideas are not important but without the money to buy the time to realize them developers are just going to keep repeating "doing what they know".

The reason RTS keeps being rehashed over and over is because largely there is no commitment of funds. Supreme commander 1 suffered under severe budget constraints and it showed in the lack of faction diversity. So to say RTS games don't need time and money to develop is a non starter, the reason why RTS is rehashed is because money buys you the time to do unit testing/balancing.

Just consider how awful supreme commander 1 was on release. The game finished in a broken state the AI was shit, the faction diversity was mirror images of one another and unit production times were wtf awful.
