Each letter of this delay announcement was painstakingly carved by hand and they've actually been working on it since 2018.

Yikes. ESA, why you do dis?

I honestly don't know where I personally stand on the idea of loot box restrictions, but I do know it's stupid to defend loot boxes with proveably false statements.

For example, they say loot boxes have no real-world value. I play HOTS and you can get heroes out of loot boxes. Guess what else you can buy heroes with? Real world currency. Thus loot boxes provide a savings of currency for a given desired hero, thus provide real world value. QED.

It is not smart to defend with an indefensible argument.

Overload didn't really have enough manpower to make something special

Of course, reviews are subjective.

However, I'm surprised to hear anyone state this.

I couldn't disagree more. Overload is a fantastic game, if a bit hardcore, and incredibly fun, thick with good gameplay mechanics, and well executed.

The consensus of enthusiasts loves Overload and rightly so. It's a great game and a worthy heir to the Descent-style 6DOF FPS genre.

They are the very definition of honesty and integrity. I mean, they actually invented honesty and integrity in the first place.

I saw that livestream, luckily the influencer was being sponsored by honesty and integrity at the time.

The headline and article are in error.

This game is the upcoming "Shadow of the Tomb Raider". "Rise of the Tomb Raider" is the current game in the series.

What the what now?

Can someone explain how NPD reporting a partial picture regarding digital sales is remotely helpful?

Their reporting appears to ignore "only part of" digital distribution channels and ruins the value of any retail-only results reporting.

I don't think this is a black eye for GOG. GOG has a noble mission.

The problem is that the idea of "DRM free" is becoming more fragile and more of a social construction than a technical one.

"DRM free" means more than being able to archive a copy of a game client, and it also means more than being able to run a copy of a game offline.

I'm not saying it will die necessarily, but it will become more rare and precious over time. Not a unicorn, but a rare pony.

Denuvo in a free game?

My understanding is that this is to prevent the outside chance of a potential future reverse-engineering of the title as a loader for Life is Strange 2.

Youtube makes everything around 40% darker than it appears in reality... thank compression

I've never actually studied video formats or codecs, so I'm sure there's a good reason for this, but why?

Why would compression choose to lose detail in the dark areas specifically when luminosity can be adjusted (for example, brightening the image by 40% before the compression stage)?

Blue's News (and its readers) has historical ties with Quake.

Quake fans should not miss Strafe, including those who played it on release. It's much improved and it's a great roguelike with Quake-style (albeit faster paced) FPS gameplay.

If you have to pay for something to get something else, it ain't free.

I feel you, brother. It's a subscription benefit. But the rest of the world, marketers and otherwise, will continue to abuse the word.

I can't be cynical about Myst. It was obtuse and weird, but special.

Riven was a bitch.

I am interested to see if these are simply technological remasterings. Myst and Riven (even RealMyst) would look too primitive for 2018 standards.

The fact that this announcement says only "updated (for Windows 10)" and not something more emphatic like "remastered" makes me think it'll just be the original art assets. Even upscaled, it will be very early 90s.

this is typical kyle.

Sorry to start my argument by forcing on yours, but instead of attacking the author, why not take advantage of his emphasizing a particular quoted point, and attack his point instead?

In order to have access to the GPP program, its partners must have its "Gaming Brand Aligned Exclusively With GeForce." I have read documents with this requirement spelled out on it.

Assuming he's not lying, isn't that a self-evidently anticompetitive agreement?

Even though I believe a Duke Nukem movie would probably be terrible, John Cena is perfect casting.

He has really good comedic timing to go along with the physicality.

The "right level" of over the top for Duke is so subjective, though. This movie could be bad, bad, bad unless they get everything calibrated and consistent and just so.

Maybe get Guillermo del Toro to direct.
