So yet again we see the real problem are the CC companies and the payment processors/banks, not G2A. And if the fucking devs/pubs weren't so greedy and trying to screw some people over with regional pricing places like G2A wouldn't even exist. They're not the problem here.

Riiiight. The indie with the $3 game is really gouging people with that regional pricing. And the company that isn't properly validating that the keys being sold were legally obtained, is not.

No, I think YOU are actually the real problem here.

So is this pvp or pve? I see Coop on the site, but you can never tell these days, the way some developers lie. I can deal with public pve servers, which require agreement to duel. But I'm sure they hell not interested in a gankfest.

Pseudo PVP. You can battle other players, but the instant you play on a public server it just becomes an endless cycle of 'wait until the other guy logs off, then gank him'.

I'm glad they finally finished it. I look forward to playing it once modders go through and systematically remove all the changes that made it stop being fun.

Considering how unceremoniously they dumped multiplayer and online support for the original Sword of the Stars (the one that people actually used to play), I'm amazed they took even this step with one of the earlier bastard stepchildren.

"Developer says Activision had Valve pull its game from Steam over allegedly stolen Call of Duty guns."

More like:

"Shitty development house with a history of stolen assets generates publicity for failed title to generate sympathy sales for other failed products during Steam Sale."

Lest we forget. Same company.

The last one was a fun game to play through when it hit the $10 discount bin, I am sure this one will be the same.

Remember six months ago when Palmer Lucky wrote:

"If customers buy a game from us, I don't care if they mod it to run on whatever they want. As I have said a million times (and counter to the current circlejerk), our goal is not to profit by locking people to only our hardware - if it was, why in the world would we be supporting GearVR and talking with other headset makers? The software we create through Oculus Studios (using a mix of internal and external developers) are exclusive to the Oculus platform, not the Rift itself."?

Apparently, neither does he.

Fallout Shelter. The game which helps you curb any potential gameplay addiction by implementing a 100% save game corruption rate. Wait, what, that's not a feature? Well, screw fixing it, just pile in some more content and microtransactions.

I thought about clicking that, but then I realized I stopped giving a shit about anything Notch has to say about anything quite a while ago.

Should we write a new companion and give him an interesting story hook? Hell no, just grab one of the Imperial companions and shoehorn him into the Republic plot. No one will notice.

I don't need a remake -- I played the original. Recently, in fact. It still holds up. I'd rather have "The Lost Paradise". The sequel that never got finished.

Richard Hilleman has been replaced by a clone that was grown using Richard Hilleman DNA and then dressed up in a new outfit. The clone will only answer to Richard Hilleman 2016, and will expire in 365 days.

I'm just impressed that they actually have some products in their lineup that people are willing to defend. That has been a long time coming, and I hope that trend continues. All of my previous experience with the brand has been that their products were absolute garbage, to the point where we refused to support them any longer, because even the replacement parts we would get after an RMA would be cheap garbage.

Has Acer ever manufactured a product that wasn't lowest bidder proprietary garbage?

I guess the author of the original article never visited Gamefaqs.com back in the day. Steam forums have always just seemed like an extension of that community.

They also rarely factor into any purchasing decisions, because most people barely register that they even exist.

You go there for the sale prices or because your product uses it as a Workshop hub or a player matching hub. But you ignore the forums and the news page because they are both kinda garbage.

News Comments > New John Romero PC Shooter Teased
30. Re: New John Romero PC Shooter Teased Apr 16, 2016, 11:10 EricFate
 
Someone gave a great observation on one of the Duke Nukem (of all places) forums a couple years back.

Romero is good at two things:

1. Designing levels. This, he is excellent at. No seriously, him and Levelord are probably the best in history.
2. Being a gameplay design lead, with the exception of Daikatana.

Things Romero is absolutely horrible at:

1. Managing anything, or anyone.
2. Telling the truth. He's chronically dishonest and blames others for his failures. The best example of this is Mike Wilson. I wouldn't go so far as to brand him a pathological liar though...that's pretty extreme.
3. Maintaining any sort of moral compass. (Insert obligatory child bride Raluca joke here).

Where is Levelord these days anyway? Thinking back on it, he was pretty damn good.
