Surprisingly, it was quite entertaining. I never watch Twitch and I enjoyed it.

Not sure how this is even news. Supporting a 10 year old CPU in a game that's supposed to be technologically cutting edge makes no sense. It should require Dx12 or better yet Vulkan too. Just support the latest and greatest and turn this into a 'game' already.

Who's going to tell the whale with the $50,000 ship that he won't be able to play on his Core 2 Duo?

I wish them luck. Democracy 3 has great Steam ratings but I just couldn’t get into it. The game mechanics seemed off and didn’t portray how the US government or US politics actually works. And public opinion of the decisions I made in game seemed to have a heavy European bias, even when playing as the US President. Maybe I was doing something wrong but conservatives were mad at me for cutting taxes.

Onward to the Zero Day patch!!!

Is Gone Gold even relevant at all anymore? It’s the code that ships on physical discs for consoles which doesn’t apply to us. And for the Dev team it’s just six more weeks of polishing for the first patch.

It's really hard to believe it's been 20 years. BG2 is one of the pivotal games in PC gaming history. Up there with Doom, Half-Life, Diablo 2, and the original Civilization.

This looks like a terrible deal.

Why? I don't have a lot of love for EA either but it still seems like a good bargain. It's only $2.50 a month if you buy the yearly subscription and you get 43 games up front.

Unfortunately the market spoke +esports and +influencers that somehow instead of just playing the teams they give you like we always did. That you now have to spend money to make the team you want to then play people. No doubt they leveraged us, but we still could have just stuck with the actual teams as-is. I still do and yes they won't make say Franchise mode with the NFL teams better because they fear that takes away from Ultimate Team.

Pay to win revenue generating game modes ruined sports gaming. And there's no turning back unfortunately. EA will give Franchise mode some lip service over the next few years because they've been publicly embarrassed. But I agree that the focus will always be on Ultimate Team and modes that directly make money.

If there's any real future, it's going to be with smaller sports titles like the Super Mega Baseball series.

It has been said countless times but STOP BUYING THE GAME. Until that happens nothing will change.

Madden is a bit unique in that regard since most of their revenue growth over the past seven or eight years has been driven by IAP from Ultimate Team. A purchase (or lack thereof) from someone like me who only likes franchise mode and will never spend additional money in game frankly is a lot less valuable to them.

We'll see if social media push back and public embarrassment will lead to any meaningful change. I'm skeptical because their developer's track record has been abysmal if you care at all about quality. But it has forced EA to finally acknowledge problems that they've been ignoring for years.

Epic Games is very much like Valve was, only Fortnite is a lot more successful than Half-Life has ever been.
Half Life didn't need to be nearly as successful. In 2003/2004, Steam's only significant competition was physical game sales so they had the luxury of being able to start off slow and build. I don't even think they allowed third party games until after HL2 was released.

The EGS is facing a huge and entrenched competitor with a very loyal customer base. And as we know very well, many of those customers have no interest in switching or trying another store.

I definitely worry Epic game store will go out of business MUCH MORE than Steam.

It’s interesting. For Valve, Steam is the endless stream of revenue that drives the rest of their business. It’s also allowed them to make enough mistakes that would have shut down most other companies. Or forced them into a buyout.

For Epic, it’s Fortnite and that revenue won’t last forever. So the clock is ticking for them to take enough of Steam’s market share to generate a sustainable profit.

I'm going to guess it'll be an exclusive for about a month at best since nobody wants to use Stadia because it's a stupid idea with a stupid execution. WTF would you clog up the internet with graphics traffic. It's sOOOOOOOOOOOOO stupid.

And streaming video too! What a waste of bandwidth! It’s why I only have VHS and the occasional DVD.

yea, and I also want to know why these people do go to HR and take up their grievances there instead of on twitter. Seems to me they just want the publicity.

HR exists to protect the company, not the employees.

I’m still in disbelief. Are you sure that this is EA we’re talking about? Electronic Arts???

No Origin requirement. A full source code release under an open source license. It’s like they’re actually saying thank you to the fans. I preordered and I never preorder anything.

It's not for everyone but if you're invested in Steam like everyone else here and have the bandwidth, it's a good value.

I wasn't that impressed with GeForce NOW when I tried it awhile back but Valve says that they're interested in adding other streaming gaming services in the future. Maybe Amazon's upcoming offering?

Stadia and Google get a lot of irrational hate around here but I like it and I've been a pro user since the beginning. No, it doesn't match the user experience of a high end pc. But it's still impressive.

The negative reaction is similar to the Epic Games Store. People feel threatened and don’t want anything to disrupt the status quo. But they’ll adjust over time.

I have no idea if Stadia will make it or not long term but game streaming is here to stay. If you want to see the potential, setup Steam Link to a 4K tv and try it. It's pretty amazing.

Stadia will work fine with a USB keyboard and mouse on a PC. I believe you need a Stadia controller right now if you want to use a Chromecast Ultra.

It's a shame, but I don't think EA or Disney would green light it these days regardless of which studio was actually making it. They want games that will tie into existing and future movies not completely separate storylines and characters.
