The days of $50.00 games have been over for me a few years now. Not sure what people pay that much money for games these days considering how cheap they will eventually become.

But I guess my point is that, a sale is a sale, even at a discount and shouldn't be frowned upon. It means that the person who bought it didn't have to have it on day 1 or didn't have to have it at all for that matter. Sales and discounts also eliminate lots of piracy. Because "some" triple AAA titles eventually reach reasonable prices there is no real justification for piracy anymore.

I wonder if by disappointing sales they mean each developer had to settle for a ferrari over a lamborghini for their new toy of the year?

I couldn't agree more with your point. The best solution against Piracy indeed.

They can put all the audio on dvd without requiring you to install it on your hard drive... I haven't bought a dvd for ages but hey 50gb... that's a monstrous download. Well I for sure hope they won't have us download all localized versions.

Why I knew it had not already happened: Because flash constantly messes up in Firefox and trying to go fullscreen on my comp constantly end up with Flash crashing.

Only one word for this news: Hallelujah!

I wonder what's up with those pay games that include microtransactions.
I hope people stay away from those games so that developers give that up. I don't want to pay for games twice.

Yeah, if we were to get a new System Shock, I'd rather it look better than a dated mobile game.

Dated mobile games is a concept relatively new to me. Whereas interesting mobile games is one I am still looking forward to seeing.

The tech demo was to introduce an upcoming game called X-isle that ended up being Far Cry.

Back in the days, the first Far Cry by Crytek emerged from a tech demo they did for Nvidia and it had dinosaurs in them. Dinosaurs with shiny reflective skin too... Not very original but back to its root I would say. This said FC with dinosaurs or FC with cowboys.. I feel there hasn't been a decent FPS in those genres yet so I think those are good ideas to explore.. And sorry but I feel it's not as retarded as the 100 zombie games we'll see this year, or whatever game will have nazis. Nazi zombies are ok though :p

I wonder if Far Cry 4 would sell more copies if it ran on dual core CPUs like FC3 did. I mean.. I don't mind new games pushing the hardware but it's not like there is a big difference between the two games to justify it.

What's this all about with the Suicide Squad? They're already in the Arrow series. I don't see how they are going to use Harley Quinn and Deadshot as villains if they put them in that movie. Is Hardy going to reprise the part of Bane or another character? Chris Evan syndrome...

To be honest banning a company to make a political point can be respected. But once you've started doing that you might as well ban all the big companies and only buy indie games...

I don't know how you guys feel about FPS but FPS ( Doom and Quake in the days ) are what drew me into buying my firstPC .. and to Bluesnews too. Now I am looking at the market today.. They are a lot of first person games coming out. A few are very innovative.. the rpgs are not getting that innovative but there are so few of them. But when it comes to FPS.. I feel like the market is drowned in Call of Duty crap.I actually enjoyed Farcry2 and loved Farcry3 and it's the kind of game I would sometimes turn on to play an old save randomly. Ubi Soft may be an evil corporation but they
are not many I can turn to to get a good quality FPS nowadays. And don't tell me I am biased I'm always trying the call of duty games for a while but I usually end up having something better to spend my time on at some point early in the game.
Seriously if I had to boycott them I would be a sad panda.
TBH if I had to boycott every company that is uncool I don't know where I would get my hard disks processors and graphic cards.. I am pretty sure that if I saw in what they conditions they are made I wouldn't like what I see either. the Ubi Soft guys would pass for a bunch of hippies.
