Wasn't the studio supposed to be broke by now?
where are all the idiots who were spamming how they had no money left and that it would be closed up by march of this year.

Or when is this new date? Will it all blow up in October?
I'm curious where all the professional arm char developers are, always love hearing their massive expertise in game making and how after 4 years we should have had the best game ever by now.

Maybe they don't care about the game anymore? Truthfully, I was pretty pumped about this game up until a year or so ago. But it has been in development (pre-alpha/alpha) for so long now, I've kind of lost interest. Just wondering if we'll see the imminent "we're switching to a new graphics engine" announcement at some point.

I love this game yet have no desire to play it due to cheaters. I paid full price for the freakin game and the cheaters ruined it. F'n pussies! And it's so obvious when someone cheats in this game. Why in hell is it so easy to make these stupid cheat tools?

I don't like Windows 10 or Microsoft's BS as much as the next person, but a good deal of what I've been hearing from people about Windows 10 crosses the line between actual issues into clueless griping.

It's clueless griping. It just makes them look like total idiots.

It seems both of the major parties are in disarray. Kind of funny actually.

What would be really funny if a 3rd party snuck in and stole the election.

Personally I think all this anti-Trump stuff is pretty much nonsense. You can't do worse on foreign policy than Obama has, the entire middle east mess is his fault, it did not fall apart until well after Bush departed.

Maybe I will vote libertarian this year, can't be any worse than either of those representing the major parties.

Johnson/Weld are actually a good choice. I think he's just a couple percent away from making the national debate. I think it would be really cool to see a Libertarian come out of nowhere and crush both D and R! Nothing can get done anymore because both parties will lambast the other. So maybe it's time the American people bring in a 3rd party to shake things up! Johnson/Weld for President!

I took the survey and was honest with my answers. I'm willing to give them a chance to clean up their mess.

Now that smartphones and tablets have lost their luster and are old and kind of boring, are there really that many people still interested in mobile games? I played a bunch when smartphones were in their heyday, but I never really got pulled into anything like the way pc games did in the '90s. Maybe it's that it is very accessible for the ultra casual gamer? I just don't see the appeal.

It's as if game designers don't even know what gamers want anymore. Why do companies waste their time and money on this crap? It's not like they're going to profit very much, if at all.

I really enjoyed L.A. Noire. It was different, had unique graphics (best facial animations I've ever seen), interesting missions, and was good quality. I was really looking forward to another game.

My phone is almost 2 generations old and still runs the apps that I use just fine. My pc is almost 5 years old (even the gfx card) and still runs current games at an acceptable frame rate.

The issue is that there's nothing interesting with hardware that causes programmers to do something new and different for the average consumer. You're limited to what the hardware can do. 3D games, spreadsheets, word processors, video editing, audio editing, media players, CAD programs, all have been around for a long time. Not to mention that most productivity apps run in a browser now.

I'm thinking that we really need a whole new paradigm shift, like really pushing towards quantum computers and things like AR to create another hardware/software bubble. Otherwise, we'll continues to make the same apps over and over again with just different features.

The concept was good in the first one, but lacked in fun factor.

EA needs to give up on the sports games. NHL 16 was so bad that it seemed like the game was an afterthought.

Already learned my lesson about buying Total Wars at launch...

Yeah, I bought 2 of the games and both would crash like 20 minutes into the game (especially Empire) and I eventually gave up on the Total War series. As much as I enjoy Warhammer theme, I doubt I'll go for this. Maybe if it's $9.99 on Steam someday.

lol, I really hope VR just tanks and goes Virtual Boy and you're all stuck playing in 2D with shit frame rates at a needlessly high res for the next 10 years bwahahahaha

pc gamers sure deserve no less after collectively shitting on 3D like they did...

This could actually happen. Software is lagging behind hardware more and more as time goes on. I mean, look at the state of computer hardware today. Very powerful cpus, amazing gpus, extremely fast memory, all run pretty efficiently. Now look at the software. The features we're seeing in games, 3D engines, audio processing has been taking baby steps compared to hardware. And it's all the same kind of games we've been playing for years, with just minor tweaks to the features. Software needs to take a big giant leap forward, or else the video game industry is going to crash. It has to at some point. People can only play the same sh1t over and over for so long. The industry needs something mind-blowing, and it ain't going to be hardware. We already have mind-blowing hardware, just nothing to show for it.

Sometimes complaining does work.

MS always seems to be long on talk and short on delivery.

What do you mean? You all complained about no Start menu in Windows 8 and they delivered lol

Software has slipped pretty far behind hardware at this point. Multi-core cpus, high-end graphics chipsets, all for software that can run on 6 year old hardware. If it wasn't for the processing demand of VR, there would be no reason to upgrade (and I'm not upgrading for VR 1.0). What's the point of all this if game genres aren't evolving and the same game mechanics work pretty well with older hardware? Software is lacking bigtime.
