At one point during The Force Awakens, I forgot that BB-8 wasn't Wall-E. It was beeping and booping and for a split second I expected the 'dialogue' to continue in Wall-E's style.

Ball-E.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Mods Open Beta

"For Fallout 4, our goal was to make Mods easier to monetise and accessible to more potential customers than ever before - for both the creators and us. But not Valve"

This seems like the first step towards their own mod shop, where mods are cross-platform and Valve don't get any percentage. I don't mind Valve being bypassed but paid mods are a Pandora's box.

Referencing horse armour in the video doesn't help...

Anyone have trouble with new greenmangaming site? Can't buy a game......

Just gave it a quick test - I can't sign in. The "Sign In" button activates but clicking on it does nothing.

The Vive looks like the better headset but I'm a bit concerned about this room-space stuff. I'd rather stay seated if possible so I hope this is optional.

There are people whom are gnashing their teeth and screaming "But it isn't like MoO2!" No, no it isn't but MoO2 had its own glaring set of flaws that most people overlook due to their rose tinted nostalgia.

Thank you, I was wondering that. I only know MOO by reputation (2 = good, 3 = bad) so I'm not concerned about whether it replicates MOO2 particularly faithfully. Particularly as, as you say, these old games aren't as perfect as we tend to remember.

I don't mind it being softcore. Stellaris will be deeper, and there's always Aurora if anyone wants to go crazy. What is DU?

Ooh dear, really?

Is the problem that it's a bad 4X game, or specifically that it's not like the good old MOO games?

Yes!

Have you played it? How is it shaping up?

From the videos I have seen, it is coming along well. Much more MOO2 than MOO3.

I can easily understand people holding Kotaku in low regard but thinking they are unethical trash while considering One Angry Gamer to be worth reading is bizarre because the criticisms apply tenfold to them. It would be people spending half their time online complaining about over-sensitive people and the other half getting incredibly easily offended over minor stuff ... oh right.

The number of famous people has presumably increased a lot continuously for a few decades so maybe 2016 isn't a bad year but a drop of things to come.

There's a cheery thought.

aww man i love a good flaming tennis match. wonder who won.

Blue. Blue always wins.

Being serious, I'd guess Blue loses most here. I can't imagine he enjoys deleting posts and I'm sorry I got dragged down and beaten with experience.

I think that's the first post I've ever had deleted. My account is 15 years old and it's finally lost its virginity.

That sucks. I wasn't aware of the always online drm in this game.
Thanks for the heads up

Was that something added specifically for release? In the beta, you could stay offline...


Actually there is an offline mode, sorry for the wrong info.

It looks like you can play the mission offline. The extra challenges require you to be online and it maintains separate save files so you can't do a mission offline and then access the challenges.

Hitman (speaking calmly ftw!) is at its best when each mission can be taken on its own as much overarching plot detracts from the cold, dispassionate nature of 47 so going episodic isn't as bad here as it would be in many games. Changing it to episodic late in development is a worry, as is always-online DRM which apparently features single-player insta-kick if the connection drops a limited offline mode.

I'd probably buy episode 1 now if it didn't have that always-online crap.

(Edit: oops, there is an offline mode.)

I have no issue with call people. The work should be either legal and regulated or at the least decriminalized. But it's not right that Nintendo is getting lambasted over this when it seems pretty obvious that a company trying to maintain a wholesome image wouldn't want their publicists secretly moonlighting as prostitutes.

Put that way, it doesn't make much sense to me. Employees who aren't moonlighting as call girls are probably having sex, too. What can you really prevent, or protect kids from? Becoming call girls, or having erections? It would be like firing someone if you found a picture of them smoking, drinking or not wearing their seat belt, except those would actually be setting bad examples.

Consensual sex can be much more of a scandal than 'only' putting lives at risk. It's messed up IMHO but Nintendo have to deal with public perception and employing someone who is also a sex worker looks bad.

I wonder who will be first to imply any woman working in the gaming industry is also a sex worker. I know who my money's on!

(Curious to know why Beamer thinks that's creepy. I agree.)

Oh goodie...another rich, entitled prick telling those who actually -do- the work to stop bitching about long hours, poor pay and bad management.

HoSpanky wrote on Apr 17, 2016, 14:03:
So, the article is St. John saying "you should totally stop complaining that you're working insane hours, and not getting paid overtime for it, or anything at all, for that matter."

No, he's saying that if you don't like working for somebody else in bad conditions for little reward, you should do something about it other than whinge impotently - "I tell these people; quit, go make great games on your own, pursue your passion".

I don't agree with what he says (no, St. John, getting "rich accidentally" isn't an adequate comparison) it's very different from him telling people to shut up and making him more money. Pretty much the direct opposite, in fact.
