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.

Every modern space 4x game has been influenced by MOO2. Why even bother calling it out anymore? You don't see "a spiritual successor to Doom and Wolfenstein 3D" when they advertise first person shooters.

I'll believe it when I see it, especially when it comes to EA. Cloud-native, artificial intelligence, "server-side neural network algorithm training".... That's not a clear vision, it's marketing using as many buzzwords as they can.

I was very surprised that he resumed development after dropping off the face of the earth for six plus months.

Outside of his personal issues he seemed stuck in a endless loop of redoing work he wasn't satisfied with instead of pushing forward.

It always entertains me when people don't realize that a given game isn't trying to be what they want it to be, so their complaints aren't valid.

It's like people complaining that the original Dungeons game from 2011 was a bad Dungeon Keeper game. Well... that might be so, but it wasn't TRYING to be a Dungeon Keeper game... so the criticism isn't relevant.

It always entertains me when people who have never played the game make sweeping generalizations and are able to conclude which complaints are valid or not.

It doesn't need to be ultra realistic but it does need to be fun and Democracy 3 wasn't. It was just frustrating. A simulation should allow you to use different strategies to win. Instead, after everything you try fails, you realize that there's one narrow path to success and you have to guess what the developer's intentions were.

the simulation aspect of this series of games is completely out of whack with reality

and despite being the title, you start of your games with no political support despite winning the said elections. Thus making the game ridiculously hard to win in a logical way

and everyone wants to assassinate you

Dev def needs to stretch the timeline to decades instead of such short intervals. For now, you can solve the HIV epidemic in Africa within 5 years, but you won't get reelected....

It needs to be rewritten so it bears some resemblance to how running a government / polling / getting elected actually works.

To be fair, I don't think any political simulation game has gotten it completely right yet although some older games like Shadow President were a lot of fun anyway.

I would take almost a decade of silence as a good indicator that Valve isn't working on anything for Half-Life. Time to move on folks.

I believe they are also working on a "WC3 HD" remaster. There were a few articles about it in late 2015.

GameStop does need to diversify if they're going to survive over the next decade. Pawning physical copies of used console games isn't a sustainable business model.

I enjoyed playing Shadow President many years ago. It was always fun threatening, invading, and nuking Canada. Damn Canadians.
