Quite a heart-felt stream from Linus. It gets touching about halfway through:

It looks pretty good so far. It has the old-school vibe with some current tech. I'm not sure how useful the parkour is going to be in multiplayer though.

Literally no one plays DOOM for MP

That's definitely not the case with this one. They've already announced that there will be several mp modes in this game. Battlemode and Invasion sounds pretty cool

I find it actually pretty amazing that a SPECIFIC cutscene (not any random one, only 1 specific one) can crash the video driver (and thus the game) that must have been a pain in the ass to find and fix. The game has a few thousand cutscenes after all.

Yeah, that is really weird. One fix, for one game's specific cutscene. Is that the cutscene where they access the user's camera and take a picture?

I don't mind delays when it comes to devs like this. I just want a really good RPG. The Witcher 3 wasn't much of an RPG as I would have liked, so hopefully they implement deeper roleplaying elements this time 'round

I saw this and immediately thought of the removedapocalypse but was surprised when I noticed none of mine had been caught up in the purge. Then I realized it was a self-inflicted-Removal. Grin

Yeah, I decided not to join in on the tired topic.

News Comments > Morning Tech Bits

It kind of reminds me of the hype behind the Nintendo Wii and XBox Kinect. They had a big burst in popularity but then fizzled away quickly.

I have 3 major issues with VR:

- I don't really like not being aware of my surroundings while playing a game.

- My home office (where I game) is too small to take full advantage of the technology.

- I'm worried that I'm going to fall on my ass and hit my head while playing.

I suppose that those could be some of the reasons why it's not going mainstream. Maybe if the tech changes where I just attach some electrodes to my head and close my eyes to play, then I might be interested.

Lucasfilm wanted Star Wars Jedi- Fallen Order to be about bounty hunters and blasters

That wouldn't have necessarily been a bad thing. Star Wars is such a rich and interesting universe that a run and gun bounty hunting game could be awesome. Republic Commando had nothing to do with lightsabers or Jedi and I thought it was great for its time.

Slap a skin on a good game and the skin barely matters

I hated Arkham Knight (way too much focus on bat mobile combat), so hopefully they'll go back to a more open world experience like Arkham City.

That would be incredibly fast turnaround from announcement to release by normal Blizzard standards. I'm skeptical.

It barely looks like a new game. Maybe Overwatch 1.5, so they probably will release it

Why? its like the biggest POS game I ever played. There is literally nothing to do in the game.

Yeah, I donít understand those numbers. There has got to be something fishy going on. Pun intended.

Maybe itís a community thing or something like that.

News Comments > Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign

41. Re: Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign Jan 8, 2020, 13:48 Steele Johnson
 
Wow, I'm surprised that some people here think the wage gap between executives and workers is ok. Are you kidding me? Take for example, the CEO of a non-profit hospital vs a surgeon, physician, or nurse. The workers who actually save lives and work 12+hour days have only gotten a 15% to 20% increase over 10 years while the CEO has gotten 100%! That's just an example, but you can imagine how bad it is in the tech industry.

I've been in tech for many years and I always get "exceed expectations" with my performance reviews because I've saved and made the companies I've worked for a lot of money (I'm at architect/principal level), but my salary is practically capped, while the executives get 300% raises, private jets, massive yearly bonuses, a pile of stock options, etc, etc. And you all know the level of incompetence in most execs! Most of them don't even know what's going on within the organization and only look at the bottom line! Workers typically need to fight to keep a company in business by working overtime and making crucial decisions, while the execs are just planning their next vacation. This absolutely has to change! I don't know if unionization is the answer (I doubt it), but the wage gap definitely needs to change. It has been a problem for years!
