Followed by Street Fighter V vs Marvel alpha, Street Fighter V.V EA, and you'll get Street Fighter V Muppets version if you buy all 3...

Ultra Mega Super Street Fighter V.

Damn, went right for the triple dog dare: skipping both "Ultra Street Fighter V" and "Mega Street Fighter V".

News Comments > Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Pricing Adjusted

I was most critical about GW2 than pretty much everyone here, and frankly anyone who whines about the pricing probably should buy a console...

If its worth it, its worth it. I don't feel any of it is worth it, but it is for my kid and I'm glad to pay it.

News Comments > Planet Coaster Beta Access for $75
8. Re: Planet Coaster Beta Access for $75 Jun 23, 2015, 15:50 Axis
 
The elite crowd is nothing like the sims coaster crowd, not even remotely close.

Elite fans are 1980's old-school pc gamers who are more than happy to spend money to test/play reboots of true classics.

Coaster sim fans are late 90s gamers who likely got into the series by way of xbox 10 years ago (or pc, but I'm expecting most were xbox), and have no desire to pay through the nose just to EA another one.

This is a bad move, will generate more bad press than good and I'm expecting we'll see a change soon enough when it doesn't pan out. Regardless, don't matter to me, just saying what seems obvious to me.

Holy Crap, there is like nothing at all I'm interested in based on the first few articles I glanced over. Fallout 4 may be the only one I'm sorta caring about.

Horizons looks kinda ok, but it looks like a Monster Hunter game...

Planet Coaster would be a game marketed to casual Sims gamers.
Casual Sims gamers don't buy betas, and sure as hell don't buy them for $75.

Someone in their marketing department needs fired asap.

Of course all the good QWTF snipers are pretty much retired and gone so maybe it won't matter too much.

Not all of them. Besides they were used to leading the red dot in a clean interface, not witnessing the modern mess of permo fog wavy hands, blinding bling and sense overload with shit that don't matter.

Do we need to mention... PORN!?

Indeed sir, yes. Imagine superimposing a victoria's secret model over top of your "big is beautiful" wife.

"What are you wearing on your face, honey?"

"It's..... for my asthma."


Ooooh superimposing... Never even thought of that, Bundy! Think you just won the John Holmes "Mind over Meat" award man.

Pre-purchase incoming!

Hulu still has it wrong. Yes everyone would prefer less advertisement, but that's not why people are leaving.

People are leaving because they can't stream all the show episodes on their TV, *some* have to be from a computer only. And while hooking up a PC to the TV is easy for many, it's annoying enough to cancel subscriptions.

So that's the answer for you Hulu execs who won't read any of this.


I think making people pay and still forcing ads is probably the biggest reason, especially since the competition does not. If you're going to force ads on the pay option, have one short ad at the start and that's it. I agree that the limitation you mention is just stupid as well.

I've also noticed on Hulu, that not all the episodes from the season are available. Do they make them all available under Hulu+?

Hulu has most TV shows most of the time on +, but the restriction is the PC one I mentioned. Hulu really hasn't had any popular mainstream competition, and most people are used to ads, everywhere. And coming from my view, someone who cut the cord primarily because of how much I hated ads, Hulu's ads were more than acceptable comparatively. But sure, it also was a part of the reason to cancel, just not *the* reason.

The problem is Hulu had momentum but it's waned for far too long. "Hulu" went hand in hand with "Netflix" in conversations, and since Hulu hasn't been able to get anyone worth a shit in their licensing department (or possibly PR), they may have missed their opportunity.

Someone let Nick Statt in on the joke yet? PC games have never, ever suffered. Ever.

Just one of the many fads and falsehoods people will feel stupid to have believed in and propagated about in their lifetime.
