So now because of EGS incompetence Now I have to wait like 20 minutes for the game to download? WTF?

GOD! I am so sick of Tim Sweeney ignorant bullshit! Sure I don't dont know how to make it work, but I am at least smart enough to know that it's fucking easy.

Do you think that everyone has gigabit internet to be able to download it incredibly quickly? Do believe for some reason that having all day 1 purchasers download it at the same time on launch day is not going to result in slower deployment compared to spacing out preloads over a week or two?

Wait, are they still doing the one action skill per character/class thing? In the era of hero shooters and RPG shooters, that seems so dated. Hell, it felt dated even in Borderlands 1 considering it was supposed to be bridging Diablo and shooters.

"Some American Airlines In-Flight TVs Have Cameras In Them."

Well, I'm pretty sure they're just off-the-shelf Android tablets, so of course they do.

Steam sucked ass when they were the pioneers, plus they started out with way less resources than Epic has now. That's not good enough anymore, yet all these publisher started storefronts- Uplay, Origin, etc. still start out terrible and only work up to barely passable.

If they don't come out the gate with all the features Steam already has plus some extra features to differentiate themselves, then it's clear they only intend to compete based on forced exclusives.

Apparently no one knows. Tencent had gotten the necessary permits, and then it was forced to be pulled without explanation from the government, which is freaking a bunch of publishers out. It's still on sale on Steam in China though.

I'm playing with completely custom key bindings. There aren't any locked keys, at least on keyboard. I have no idea what the other guy is talking about.

Really, of all the things you can complain about, you're gonna complain about the game mechanics? This is like the 16th Monster Hunter game.
#1, don't complain if you're going in super blind on something like this where you have plenty of opportunity to check out the gameplay style beforehand.

#2, having stamina for both active attack and defense is a very common gameplay mechanic, used to force the player to act strategically. It's present in the Elder Scrolls games and the Dark Souls games for example.

Legitimate complaints are the ones about how it could really run better for the level of graphics, and the multiplayer party finding is still very clunky.

"Built with Unity, incorporating Parallax Scrolling, Blade of Unagi is a technical marvel."

Lol, is this satire? I feel bad for the dude, but the demo video is incredibly amateurish both in how it's presented and the technical skills shown within.

News Comments > Quake Champions Spring Update Launches; Cheaper Mode Comes Tomorrow

4. Re: etc. Mar 15, 2018, 16:56 Zyrxil
 
The skins aren't for a 'family audience', people in general like interesting looking cosmetic skins. I checked out the game when it was in beta, and the only skins they had were basically palette swaps. That's insane for a F2P game; the revenue stream lives off of well done cosmetics.

Not that it matters really- the game is dead before it even launches. Interest is non-existent. I guess Quake just always has to compete with Unreal engine games- Lawbreakers was DOA and they just have to follow suit.

Google ditched autopilot driving feature after test user napped behind wheel

What a ridiculous article title by that writer. It reads like Google scaling back on autopilot, but what actually is is going from 95% to 100% autopilot because users can't handle the 5% emergency if they're napping and playing on their phones.

I mean, that's cool accomplishment for the dude and all, but this is obviously a student's first game project that in no way deserves to be sold for money.

Wow that is janky as fuck. Is this the start of the wave of ultra shitty low effort games done by people with no development experience, for VR?

I think Hollow Knight is easily the best Metroidvania released in the past 5 years. The atmosphere is fantastic, the map is gigantic with lots of interconnectiveness that metroidvanias need, there's plenty of world lore lying around for you to piece together, and the Souls-elements fit so well with the Metroidvania theme of exploring a massive hostile environment alone.

Oh wow, that first person camera really gives a great sense of speed. Looks like it'd be a great game to use a VR headset for, even if it's not specifically built for VR.

It's infuriatingly vague clickbait. "Nearly Breaks The Game..." 'Oh I wonder how'

In this case, one of Fallout 4’s rare “talking your way out of it” options broke down because the player tried going through the entire game in a peaceful manner.
That doesn't tell you shit! Why the fuck would quest scripting randomly break down just because NPCKillCount==0?

CS was so great during the beta years. What the hell happened?

Have you played CS since beta? I haven't, but AFAICT, it's more popular than ever and has converted most of the old guard. And they had new hitboxes put in recently, which was a problem for like a decade. It's one gun from 5 day old patch that got memed all over the place. Don't be a crazy nostalgia dude.

They needed to make a sequel of this game. Instead they piss away resources on a remaster. What a bust.

Implying the resources spent porting and improving some models is at all comparable to the resources needed for a full modern sequel...

In any case if you want a successful sequel, a remaster to drum up memories and expand the audience beyond the original platform is the way to go.

New Order is much better than Old Blood. OB is decent, but it rehashes plenty of the same ideas as New Order without really doing anything new, and it has a lot less location variety.

Ugh, I know Mass Effect is very soft scifi, but the trailer bothers the hell out of me. It presumably takes place hundreds of years after Mass Effect 3, during a time period where the races of our galaxy developed the technology for intergalactic travel (tech which even the Reapers did not have). Yet Hero McBadass still has the N7 logo centuries later and is still using an Omni Blade.
