Tried it again recently, and even though I have almost 100 hours played before, I died in 30 minutes due to sickness and hunger.
I quit playing before because the game takes too much attention to finding food and water and staying healthy, in a very unrealistic manner (even rain can make you dead-sick in a few seconds and you can go from a full belly to starvation in just a few hours).
And now they have made it much worse.
Uninstalled it very quickly again.

DOOM Eternal. Disappointment of 2020.
Not really expecting much from Bethesda anymore. Never have actually. Not even in the 90s.
So It wasnt a disappointment for me.
I mean, its sad seeing Doom in a state like this, yes, but I am actually getting used to seeing good IPs being raped. It has just become too common.

Sorry to go against the grain, but most of us are old school gamers and these games just aren't for us anymore. Back in the day we had Tomb Raider, Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem, SimCity, Xwing, etc etc etc.

This is this generations version of Team Fortress 1 or 2/Rainbow Six/etc. Not for us, not for us "to get".
Wrong. I still like a lot of games if they are well made and something new. I even started to like platformers recently, after playing the Ori games.
I played Fortnite and Apex Legends, and liked them more or less (hated the building in Fortnite though). Loved PUBG, until I realized how bad it is from a technical standpoint.
But after the 12th clone, or hybrid of putting 2 successful games together, I am getting bored, sorry.

I know back when I was younger I often imagined how games will look like in the future, how advanced they are, how many different things you can do, how real they are, because many games hinted at that kind of future, espeicially when first playing games like Ultima Online, EverQuest, Operation Flashpoint, Tribes, etc. Nothing came true of that. Nobody is taking risks anymore. Not even the multibillion dollar corporations. And when they take a risk, then everyone told them beforehand that it would fail, and it does.
And when indies try something new, it either gets bought up by the big ones or their success makes them greedy and go the microtransactions route.

The mobile game sector shows perfectly whats wrong with gaming. They even use templates for new games. Essentially only changing the skin. And its been coming to the PC and console sector as well.

All of these games look exactly the same to me. It's like someone said to a bunch of 17 year old artists, "Just go wild making a bunch of random and generic art assets - we'll shove them an equally generic looking shooter."
Youre not the only one. Creativity is dying, at least in the mainstream or where mainstream is the goal. No wonder when political correctness is dictating your every thought.

I thought Denuvo was piracy protection, not anti-cheat protection? Or do they do both now?
Both, unfortunately.

Also, damage control got a lot of ass kissing from redditors, making Bethesda sound like the second coming of Jesus. Oh sure, devs didn't know what they were doing or didn't test the changes on Linsux (Forgive me Burrito, I have sinned).

Remuvo Denuvo.
Since when is Reddit not ass kissing?
It has pretty much become the PR mouthpiece of corporations.

Wait, so you can create value by focusing on making great games instead of exploiting gamers through loot boxes and microtransactions???

And without DRM?!?! HERESY!

Who would've thought! /s

Don't forget, making literally the best game ever made. And they're about to do it again.

Fuck you Epic, Ubi, EA, and Bethesda. CDPR is the only good publisher left.

The best RPG yes, at least this decade, the best GAME... well that is debatable.

Not even that. To me Kingdom Come: Deliverance is much better.
I dont like their model with DLC, but its still a much better game.

I like these games but I hate their story telling. It's broken and isn't coherent. If you watched a movie like this you'd say it's the biggest piece of shit.

None of you guys can tell me the story of bloodborne without watching youtubes and such. I put 180 hours into bloodborne and still cannot tell you much more than Some dude got stuck in the "Dream" world trying to contact gods for the all powerful blood.

Souls games are even more nebulous. Requiring you to read every item and interpret the area around it to try and piece together a story.

If the story was actually good and coherent, you wouldn't have a bunch of youtubers trying to come up with STORY THEORY videos.

When a story is well told, then I want to play that game, even if I dislike the gameplay. Games without story or at least extremely well made atmosphere, which tells the story on itself, were never my thing. So I never understood why people love Dark Souls so much. I played DS3 once, didnt know what I am doing, where I am, what I am supposed to do, why I am supposed to do it, and uninstalled it after a few minutes.

While it's fine to enter the registry manually and make changes to particular programs, I certainly agree with author that using "registry cleaners" is a bad, bad idea...;) Because usually they "clean" too much...;) Could leave you with an unworkable system, easily. But no danger in doing things manually, as long as you know what you are doing, etc.
Meh. A lot of cleaners are very invasive, but CCleaner is extremely careful, not to say superficial.
Comparing CCleaner to other registry cleaners is like comparing a skin peeling to heart surgery.

I wonder when Epic expects EGS to start making money. With all the giveaways, timed exclusives, $10 coupons and reduced cut, they've most definitely not made any profit since launch.

They aren't trying to make money right now, they are just gaining market share and making a name for themselves. Getting people used to using EGS instead of Steam/Gog/Whatever is the purpose. EGS is funded by the literal billions Epic is making off of Fortnite and to a much lesser extent, Unreal Engine licensing fees.

Epic is pulling an Amazon; they'll probably be 'losing' money through the EGS for years, but not care at all, as long as they get customers onto the platform and get some familiarity, and the Fortnite kids keep spending thousands on cosmetics. Plus, a certain percentage of EGS users are actually buying games on the platform now.
Only problem is Amazon didnt have much of an competition.
What Amazon did was actually very different. They built out their power and reach before anyone else could. They invested in pretty much everything to get their tentacles into it.
Epic isnt doing much at all. The EGS hasnt been improved much at all with even basic features others have had for over a decade.

HA, now we know why they did temporary 2FA. Rockstar didnt want that people did a billion of accounts and claimed this freebie on them, so that cheaters simply have endless copies to fall back to without paying.

What significant fluid mechanics, if any, were shown in that demo? The hair I could give you, though it still looked better than ~98% of other existing tech, but water? Laugh
Look at it again. They even mention it.
It looks like shes going literally through quicksilver, aside from the color (which was also pretty ridiculous). Not only because of how the physics react but also the reflections. Probably the reason why they didnt spend much time showing it.

Very impressive, especially the last part.
No improvements on hair, though, and the water looks extremely bad as well. Almost reminded me of Morrowind.

At least now we know how they want to achieve 4K60 on that mediocre hardware of these new consoles.

I think the same about Predator that this review says.
Kinda weird though, that almost all of the asymmetrical games are making the same mistakes. They seem to look at other failed asymmetrical games like Last Year or Hide or Die and think "oh nice, we will do things the same way". How stupid can you be?
I mean these devs made a very good game of the same genre with Friday the 13th. They just didnt do enough for PR and content. And of course there then was the lawsuit which pretty much destroyed it. Not to mention the massive bugs and indifference to cheaters and griefers by the devs.
Why didnt they improve on that instead?
No, instead they had to copy the other failed games.
Ridiculous.

The lesson apparently not being to install a 2FA app like Authy or Google Authenticator like a sensible person...

How do you know when that was?
How do you know GA was available for those (hint: it wasnt)?
Why do you attack me then based on your laughable assumptions?
Let me guess who you attack on a daily basis for being stupid.
