DOOM Eternal. Disappointment of 2020.
The Half Elf wrote on May 21, 2020, 06:20: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.
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".

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."

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

CD Projekt Has Surpassed Ubisoft to Become Europe's Most Valuable Video Game Company.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Dang it, I told myself I wasn’t going to buy anything until my backlog was reduced, but FarCry 5 for $5 was too much for my weak constitution to handle and I caved.

the water looks extremely bad... Almost reminded me of Morrowind
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?

After giving away my phone number for 2FA on Twitter, Google and some other big, "trustworthy" corporations, I suddenly get spam calls on that number.
So, I already learned my lesson.
The lesson apparently not being to install a 2FA app like Authy or Google Authenticator like a sensible person...
