Have they finished the storyline of Mankind Divided yet? That seemed to be one of the biggest criticisms.

News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda in March

Over this holiday break, developers at BioWare took home a version of the game in what we call the “holiday build”. This is a longstanding studio tradition that goes back to the early days of the original Mass Effect. Many load up a PC or console and go home to play as much as possible at their leisure. Coming back from holiday, the feedback has been great. Getting the endorsement from members of our studio, many of whom played key roles on the original trilogy, was definitely a key factor in helping us lock in on the date.

So Bioware employees are encouraged to spend their holiday break doing work to beta test the game. Cool.

Good article about Anachronox. The link here is wrong though (it updates itself when you scroll down the page), here's the right one: https://www.gamestm.co.uk/features/behind-the-scenes-of-anachronox/

If they are divesting themselves of all their MMOs, what is Turbine going to be left working on? Is WB going to shut down the studio?
F2P mobile games.

None of you read the article that was cited in that claim did you? At least no one commented in the relevant thread last night: https://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=postmessage&boardid=1&threadid=176985

Whether or not the Russian intrusion actually tipped the election, you cannot read the NYT's story from yesterday afternoon documenting the Russian attacks on our political organizations without coming to the conclusion that this was a plausibly deniable act of war.
"Act of war"? Put away the nukes. The US government has spied on everyone, it has intervened in so many other countries' elections, it has militarily intervened in so many countries and caused the deaths of countless people. But we're supposed to be outraged by one Russian hack of a political party that had no provable impact?

This is all just distraction stoked by a febrile media and a political party that can't accept it lost. And what's more it's dangerous distraction.

Uh a quick Google suggests there are about 5 billion 'shares' on Facebook every single day. If 1% is fake, that's like 50 million shares of fake content every day.

News Comments > Dishonored 2 Patch Plans
13. Re: Dishonored 2 Patch Plans Nov 11, 2016, 20:11 Squirmer
 
People have different expectations for performance I guess. I have a GTX970 and i5-3570 and the game runs perfectly fine with the 'auto' settings (mix of high and medium). 'Perfectly fine' for me is probably 'way too slow' for some other people though. But most of my PC is about 4 years old now so I'm not expecting miracles.

But they really need to fix the mouse issues!

It runs slowish for me, but most of my computer is about 4 years old now so I'm not complaining. Game looks great even with most setting around medium.

Seems like there's a weird issue with mouse sensitivity though, like sometimes it's more sensitive than at other times.

Hmm, i wonder if this has anything to do with it.
Mouse speed is affected by framerate.

Yeah I think that must be it. Really annoying.

So is this an entirely separate installation? In which case save games won't carry over?

but does not explain why the clip uses live action instead of gameplay footage
Because Bethesda has money to burn?

The race was so easy after the patch. Happy to brag I won pre-patch.

I get the feeling hardly anyone played Mafia 1. Mafia 2 was nothing next to the original, but people act like Mafia 2 was a great game now. Shame you can't buy Mafia 1 digitally anymore.

Looks like people are still complaining about the game's name. Maybe they should just change it. But if they do change it, you'll still never get Prey 2, so...

I feel bad for the dev team really. I'm sure there are plenty of people on the team who knew there should have been better customization for PC, but management decided it wasn't needed. Amazing how they don't learn from past examples.

All developers will need to do is add a disclaimer to trailers saying 'alpha version, may not represent final product' -- which many already do -- and that's it. This won't affect the industry more broadly than that.

The issue in this particular case seems to be that the NMS Steam page is still advertising things that aren't in the game. If that's the case, no sympathy.

It's funny seeing game developers outraged about this. All you need to do to avoid this happening to you is not mislead your customers. Too hard?

But PC gaming is dead already isn't it? At least that's what the media was saying a few years back when tablets became popular. /s
A few years ago people were saying console gaming was dead. Then the new consoles came out and broke sales records.

This goes a bit beyond just supporting Trump, though. Luckey has aligned himself with white supremacist types. There has to be a limit to what society tolerates in the interest of pluralism.

Mad Max has some really good sides, but I wish there wasn't so much emphasis on on-foot combat (all the base conquers). The driving is great fun, and the game would have been so much better with more focus on that.

I have a wild theory that CS:GO is #1 because it's a fun game that people enjoy playing. Crazy I know.

Do you guys think Valve also fake the user stats that show CS:GO had a peak playerbase today 10 times higher than the next most popular paid game (639,072 vs 64,958)?

Or do you think it might just be a popular game and there's no conspiracy or malpractice behind it?
