Why makes games when you can make people buy no game whatsoever at twice the cost of 1 game. It's a GREAT DEAL.

There are 20-something gamers who would laugh at us for saying this and they've accepted these kinds of schemes as not only normal, but preferential to our old way of going to the store, buying a box with a disc in it, and installing it.

Surprisingly, POE plays pretty good on Xbox. I took a barbarian build through it out of curiosity and was surprised. Looks and moves good on One X. Still prefer it on PC, however.

i get a daily reminder of how fucked this game must have been when i stop into the gas station and see the halo bonus XP cans of monster. they had to cut and run on a lot of marketing push that was already bought and paid for.

back in august microsoft created two new positions, a singleplayer project lead (bungie vet joe staten) and a multiplayer project lead (the MCC chief pierre hintze). i kind of wonder if chris lee was even doing anything or if he was sidelined.

I don't get it though, correct me if I'm wrong...but didn't they push it back because of public outcry over the graphics/textures not being "next gen"? I thought it was a stupid complaint and I also find it hard to believe they'd ruin their console launch and all the promotional tie-ins by delaying a game for the sole reason being a minority of upset fanboys.

I've been coming here since around 2000, and after 20 years, I've still not found a better gaming news site on the web. Just the news, plain and simple. Like sitting down and reading the morning newspaper, only gaming-related. I've always loved the clean, minimalist look and how it's easy to read and follow with the eye. Modern game sites look like someone vomited on the screen and spread it with their hand.

Thanks Blue, for having the only good gaming news site out there, IMHO.

Totally agree with this one. I woke up early and only managed to barely get an Xbox Series X. By refreshing a dozen different store's tabs for 20 minutes until my cart finally loaded on one. (MS Store). I still don't have a PS5, which is what I actually preferred. I also don't have an Nvidia 3080 either, which I had planned to get for my new rig I'm building this fall.

$8,700 of un-used money gathering dust and waiting to be spent in my checking account and the companies I want to give it to have decided they don't want it.

Some guys on ebay are selling 3080's for a few thousand bucks. Must be nice.

Looks like everyone lost interest in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning already.

Fun game, but it has way too much content for a single player RPG. World is too big, too many quests, too many respawning enemies. You can tell it was originally meant to be an MMORPG. After a while it begins to drag on. You just want it to be over with. Gets too tedious.

Still can't believe they didn't fix the inventory GUI or carry weight limits. The only 2 things that really needed fixin.
Apart from fixing some issues with high resolution, there's nothing really changed about the game according to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GepAtB6cKpM

Also, a large portion of the negative reviews on Steam complain about frequent crashes.

I just got home from work and played 6 hours straight without exiting and had not a single crash (Hit level 5)

I have noticed improved stone/ground/wall textures. Also you level considerably slower than before. I'm only just now at 5 after having cleared the entire first zone and before, I'd be twice that after doing so.

The new very hard difficulty is fun too. Enemies are dodging my arrows and I don't remember them doing that before. It could be that I hadn't played a finesse character since my first playthrough back on PS3 though.

Overall I'm greatly enjoying it. Nobody makes non-isometric ARPGs anymore, or so it seems. I miss this kind.

200 GB isn't a lot when you figure standard non-solid state drives are commonly 4TB and even your average SSD is about 1GB

I have a 2TB internal and a 4TB external, with a combined 2.78TB left to use. I don't get why 200GB is a lot unless you have a very bad internet connection and need 3 days connected to download it off of GOG/Steam.

The problem with these games is that they're always reviewed on a "first impressions" basis.

100 hours later everyone finds out the story completely sucked and ruined the game.

It always amazes me how someone can put 100 hours into a game, and then give it a thumbs down. Seems like at 100 hours you're getting your money's worth.

Those people who do that only discredit themselves when they pull that low down crap. I pay no attention to those type of reviews.

The only time I would say that this is legitimate, is if a major patch came out that totally wrecks the game. Then I can understand the thumbs down.


I dunno, I feel that if someone spends that much time on a game, then they've become an expert and know much more about it, which means their opinion is more valid than someone who played it briefly then quit. I'd trust then 100 hour negative review far more than a 10 hour positive one.

Crytek probably hasn't been making much money as they'd like over the last few years I guess. Not enough people licensing their engine, since Unreal and Unity seem to be the only two getting used anymore. That's why they took Epic's exclusivity deal money.

I wasn't too excited for it anyway. No big loss.

Maybe a year from now when it's 50% off on Steam like Borderlands 3 was a couple months ago, I'll get it.

It's going to be difficult for me to prevent myself from buying this. I don't want to ruin even a tiny bit of the start of the game, much less 4 experience levels worth. It's bad enough I watched Swen play the game twice and had some of the interactions already shown to me. I want to play this clear.

It's a bit annoying and I don't understand why it's required in this game and almost no others, but there's a 5-10 min texture optimization kinda routine it has to run first startup.

DX12 games now do this. They load the textures first.

Game is so short that people are playing through the full campaign and refunding it within two hours.

Wow. Definitely not an homage to Quake then, since even without Scourge of Armagon, it was a good 15-20 hour FPS at least.

Couldn't play all the way through since the game was painfully easy, even on the hardest setting. If you look through the reviews you'll see it's a common complaint. It's incredibly simple to build yourself to the point where you dominate even the optional bosses that the game doesn't want you to beat until the end. It's crazy. Doesn't help that there are basically only 4 enemy types the entire game that you encounter endlessly for 30 hours.

I remember when I first Installed Elder Scrolls Online about 3-4 years ago and was shocked it was 100GB. I don't really think 80 is that bad. Especially when I just put in a 4TB secondary drive. If you don't have a couple 4TB drives in your PC now, you're in trouble IMHO.

As for BL3, it's actually fairly decent. The story is really bad (I don't want to spoil it, but the "twists" in it are really ridiculous and fanfic-level dumb) but the actual shooting mechanics are incredible and the loot drops a lot better than the other games. Lots of legendaries, ala Diablo 3.

Beat me to it. I've been hearing rumors of ND getting NOLF for years now. Luckily, I still have my original CDs/Boxes for the first two (Not Contract JACK, however) so I don't need it too bad. Would be great, though.

Also, the NFLPA announced no preseason over a month ago, so Blue is a little slow today too. We've known that for a while now. The big question is whether or not they'll allow fans in the seats, which signs are pointing to no, they won't.

What is this, the 3rd or 4th time this has happened? I miss the old days, like when Springsteen - instead of refusing Reagan the rights to use Born in the USA - merely mocked him for not getting the intent/irony of the song's naming or listening to the jaded/anti-patriotic lyrics.

I think Joe Biden should make a campaign video set to Oingo Boingo's "Little Girls".
