That one line is enough to make it a no buy. M/KB should always be the main and equal to or better than adding console controller.(as well as the console save system).

C'mon...you're meaning to tell me you prefer to play racing and platforming games with a M/KB over a controller? I find that very hard to believe. Some games are easier to control with a M/KB and some are easier to control with a controller. There's no need to be a "PC Master Race" elitist.

From what I gather from the reviews the biggest complaint is that the game gets repetitive rather quickly and it has a few technical issues. I find it hard to believe that those complaints warrant the 50/100 score from Polygon however. I'd like to see how that reviewer rates MMORPGs (which are the the epitome of repetitive).

Not sure whether I should just grit my teeth and accept the MMR hell-hole Ive dug myself into (unknowingly since this was my first MOBA) and chip away at it while enduring AFK'ers & Feeders in nearly every single game I play, or just simply say fuck you Blizzard and uninstall...

Judging from your experiences it sounds like you should definitely uninstall. No game is worth suffering over, especially because I'm sure you have plenty of other much more enjoyable games.

I'm glad to see Redguard is finally available. I've been wanting to try it out for a while now.

If anyone cares, Daggerfall and Arena are free to download from the Elder Scrolls website without having to make any purchase.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I'm glad Derek is doing this. Perhaps if it was a different individual doing this people's reaction would be much more positive. Who doesn't want more transparency from a company that has has taken in millions of dollars from fans and then failed to deliver on its goals?

If there's a market for video games there will always be an industry for video games.

Anyway, most developers don't have to worry about being harassed because no one knows who they are so they can't be targeted. The more you keep your head down the less often you will have to deal with the assholes on the internet.

Yeah, shooters are oft renowned for their "strong narratives".

True there are but a few (must be why I don't play many FPS these days), but some semblance of a storyline and a narrative is better than none. I look at the current iteration of DOOM and it seems that no attention has been payed to a storyline and instead it's all about pushing the boundaries of pixelated gore. The level editor looks like a nice touch, but I can't imagine that the gameplay will keep me interested for more than a few hours.

lol. Was I the only one who liked it? I would love to see a story-focused game set in the Doom universe following a small group of characters trying to survive.

No, you're not the only one. I thought it looked more interesting than the mindless run and gun gameplay that it ended up being. I tend to enjoy games a lot more when they have a strong narrative to immerse myself in.

Yeah, I agree, they haven't shown any actual gameplay footage, which doesn't give you a whole lot of confidence in the game.

Yes, actually they have shown gameplay in the the 'Gameplay Overview Trailer': http://www.bluesnews.com/s/160980/mad-max-trailer

So what happens if I do a free upgrade and after a year, I decide that I don't want to pay and I want to go back to Win7/8/8.1, will my old license be nuked?

If you upgrade within a year from now it's free forever. The only reason you would have to pay is if you don't upgrade within the next year. If you want to go back to a previous Windows version I'm sure the key would still be valid (at least that's how it has worked in the past).

I would invite you to visit the Windows 10 website for more information.

Edit: If you want to download it now (instead of waiting for your 'reserved' copy) you can go here to download the ISO files.

So what's the deal with this "free" upgrade and how long does it last?

You need Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 to upgrade for free and it's free for a year. If you're using one of those operating systems you should have a windows symbol in your taskbar which allows you to reserve your copy for download.

He lives less than three miles away from me so I had a brief urge to go do something mischievous. However, considering his name is ruined, his dental practice is most likely ruined, and he might be charged with poaching, I'm guessing he's already learned his lesson.

"I hunt demons for a living"... WTF is Geralt doing hunting demons here?

I had the same exact thought. Seems like they are trying to capitalize on the success of the Witcher by having the same voice actor or someone who sounds exactly like him.

News Comments > Smedley Leaves Daybreak

SOE should have fired his ass with the Vanguard fiasco. That could have been such an amazeballs game. And chief bean counter taking over the role? Oh yeah, that'll work out well. Rolleyes I'm guessing we'll see Daybreak games dead inside a year, two at most.

Vanguard was doomed from the start because of the managerial ineptitude of Brad McQuaid. SOE was the only reason the fiasco turned into a playable game after they took over full development.

On another note, I doubt many will be saddened to hear the news of Smedley leaving. I don't recall very many positive things said about him among SOE's fans. It seems Smedley was always to blame for every unpopular decision that was made to change a MMORPG(and there were a lot of them).

"As gamers, one of the coolest features coming with Windows 10 is the Xbox app."

Am I missing something or is the Xbox app completely worthless if you don't own a Xbox One? Microsoft makes it sound like PC gamers should be excited about it regardless of whether or not they own a XBONE, but to me it looks like the app is entirely tied into owning the console.

News Comments > Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade Switches to Unreal Engine 4
4. Re: Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade Switches to Unreal Engine 4 Jul 16, 2015, 12:38 Desalus
 
Switching game engines 2 years into development typically isn't a good sign. I never had high hopes for this game and now it seems even more likely that the game will never see the light of day or it will be a pile of shit. I'm not sure why Games Workshop gave the 40k license to a developer with a track record of making terrible games.

It's really too bad that the 40K MMO didn't work out for Vigil Games. I had some faith that they could actually make a good game, unlike Behaviour Interactive.

How many people actually care if this franchise continues? From my point of view most people were only interested in DNF because they were curious to see how the game would finally turn out. After it proved to be a pile of shit, I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of those people have simply lost interest in Duke Nukem.

About the only time you see developers admit to anything being amiss is when the company is about to go bankrupt and the people being laid off start talking. Until then it's always the same PR bullshit about everything being just fine.

Jesus, could that clown have had his tongue up his ass any further? And then they wonder why no one takes game "journalists" seriously.

As Sean took the ship into space I had to laugh/cringe when the IGN journalist said, "That..okay..well just blew my mind. That was, that was a thing that just happened. We were just walking around, you were swimming under water, and now you're in space." He said it as if he had NEVER seen a trailer of this game before. Nothing that was shown off looks very exciting and yet he acts like everything he is witness to is groundbreaking. Sean shows him two moons and he exclaims "Oh my goodness."
