The DarkPlaces quake project will be hard to beat I think.

You beat me to saying this.

I still have the same modded dark places install I've been using for a decade. I use it for Scourge of Armagon as well and still play it. Not to be a negative nancy, but I don't think anything modern triple-A devs can do will be as good as what a bunch of dedicated fans did. I'll stick with Dark Places.

I played this demo earlier in the year when they had that indie game promotion on Steam. Was honestly surprised with how good it was. Felt like the original RE with the aiming and the camera angles. I put it on my wishlist and plan to buy it day one.

This is still by far my favorite game site. No nonsense, just the news. Been coming here since 2000 I believe. Forget how I heard about it. I've worked on game sites, promoted them, joined their communities, have seen sites come and go...but if I'm being honest, no gaming news website comes anywhere close to this. You come here, read the news, no bias, no BS, just the news in a simple 1990s format that has never changed.

Don't know if you'll see this blue, but honestly, it's still the first site I visit every morning. Thanks for keeping it around.

I ordered mine literally as the site went up and my pre-purchase is still listed as "Q1 2022". Not a big deal, but I wonder if anyone actually managed to nail the december release.

This is great to hear, and quite funny, considering Michael Morhaime and his boys were bragging a few years back about how inclusive, diverse, and progressive they were as a company.

Every time you see these people go hard SJW, it always turns out years later they were - in actuality - total toxic douchebags.

10 minutes in they send you on a grind level with encounters every 5 seconds and no healing drops whatsoever.... lmao

That almost killed it for me until I hit level 5 and two party members learned healing spells. After that, the game balanced out. I can understand people upset with it, but if you stick it out, it's quite good.

It was already revealed why Nintendo didn't mention it. They don't wasn't to release during the chip shortage and have fans who are unable to get consoles. Internally, they fear losing fans or getting backlash the way Sony has over the way they handled it.

I hope this scares these SJW-ified geek girls that back-doored their way into the hobby and were coerced (read: brainwashed) into hating white males and conspiring to cancel them out of the industry. You can laugh if you want, but it's the truth and there have been talks for years amongst the good people in this industry on who will have the guts and the money to fight back at them.

Looks like Avellone is that one. Good luck to him.

FFVIIR has been a Sony PlayStation exclusive for over a year and it is looking like it will be closer to two years after the initial release before it reaches PC...

...and here on bluesnews comment section we have people worried that it will be an EGS exclusive.

I'm impressed. It takes a certain level of disdain for Epic to be upset with Epic for just the possibility of an EGS exclusive while being completely mum about the fact that it has been been an exclusive for Sony for about two years after initial release.

I've heard that the Epic hate is because of them running exclusives, and so I would expect the same level of hate for Sony when they do the same behavior.
But these folks remain quiet and give Sony a free pass. Kind of leads me to conclude that the hate isn't really about EGS exclusives, and is just hate against Epic. If they wait too long, then they might trigger my GTA5 reflex of "sorry, you took way to long to release this on PC; so long that I am used to waiting, and will pick it up at bargain bin sale prices instead; next time, release it sooner you dolts".

Maybe this is old Quake vs Unreal hate. Back in the old days of this site being the Quake rag, I'd imagine this site gathered those who preferred Quake to Unreal. So maybe the community has always been a little biased?

Does make me wonder if these folks are looking for reasons to hate Epic or if they have other reasons to hate Epic.

For me, if they hit both Steam and EGS at the same time at the same price point, I will choose Epic because Epic takes less of a cut from the publisher and doesn't require the publisher to sell at the same customer facing price that they sell on other platforms (like Steam requires). It is probably too much to hope that we will see a release this December, and I'm not very optimistic about seeing it with in the next year either.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't hold Sony to the same standard because over the past couple of years they've loosened up and are bringing their console exclusives to Steam. Granted, Horizon wasn't the greatest PC port, but Days Gone turned out splendidly.

The amount of anti white racism has ramped way up in the last few years, but that doesnt get touched. The recent anti jew stuff goes ignored too. Ya know, both ignored for "reasons".

"ChokeDaJews" or something like that running around. odd spelling, but you get the idea.

Agree on all counts, but let me add this: Gaming communities have always policed themselves. Having the developer ban anything they don't like will lead to chaos and resentment, eventually. Sure, the guys with the N word in their names will rightfully get banned, but they'll just extend it and keep extending it until everyone named Obama, Obummer, and anything with Monkey in the name will get banned too. It always goes this route. Always.

The road the hell is paved with good intentions.

This is wonderful news !
Remember fondly when I played Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 1 & 2 with the PCSX2 emulator (high resolution, instant load/save states, mouse & keyboard reconfigured)
If successful, maybe they'll continue the saga ?



One bad thing about the emulator is that the videos are incredibly choppy/garbled and some of the sounds/visual effects are improperly emulated. I always wanted a proper pc version and I'm excited to see them doing it. Hope they'll do Dark Alliance 2 as well, since it was the better of the two, imho.

Had to read the article through to see the context. Turns out he was talking about Zombi Unicorn, the chick that got away with appearing totally nude on twitch by claiming painting her nude body was art. Angered a lot of people, women included. Also, it was a twitter post, and to be honest, everyone says shit on twitter that is awful...that's why twitter is there. It's a hate dumping ground. Doesn't excuse it, but it's not as shocking as they make it out to be.

I've used a lot of mice, but I think it comes down to how big your hands are. I finally found the perfect one in the Roccat Kone series. They're chunky, wide, and my hand doesn't cramp up when playing for long periods as time as it does with other mice. This is specifically the exact model I bought, which is a bit wider than most:

Also, the placement of the buttons on the side is perfect. No mid game adjustments needed.

I was curious, so I looked up the video where the supposed "rape" of the character occurred, and it was really no different than a million other cliched "slot this memory stick in your brain computer" jokes that every Shadowrun game has ever made. I've read plenty of cyberpunk novels through the years that pull the old innuendo card out when putting memory sticks/card/drives into people's head/neck computers. It's an ancient, old trope.

These people wouldn't have lasted long in my old DM's highschool group. We had one dude who would strip down and run around town flashing people and pantsing the party members. People sure are sensitive nowadays.

Arguing about whether it takes some miliseconds extra to launch a game one way versus another, or nitpicking about a few MB of RAM and CPU usage that doesn't even cause your processor to come out of idle, seems kinda fruitless.

Maybe I missed a few replies somewhere, but I don't believe anyone - or at least me - is worried about the time each launcher takes to start themselves or a game. What most gamers care about is what you get by using each launcher and what you have to put up with. Epic lacks forums and a workshop and any community, yet it gives deeper discounts and more free games than Steam, which has those community options but doesn't give nearly as much back.

I wish we could go back to the days when you could go into a store and buy a boxed PC game, take it home, install it from the disc and play it without a "launcher", but as of 2010, I stopped resisting this new digital future and started buying on Steam.

You could pirate games and get CD cracks, which I did for a very long time, but at 45 years old, I no longer have the time or patience to hunt "clean" ones down.
