Not after the grandfathered $7.99 subscriptions go to $9.99.

There might be some people to whom that's a big deal (and I don't judge), but all in all, the large majority of people will still see plenty of value in 10 bucks a month, and that increase in collected fees will more than offset the few people who will quit over it.

In any case, I'm surprised it's only twice as many subscribers. Just on customer service alone it should be 50 billion times as many subscribers, but of course Netflix doesn't have a government-protected monopoly in a huge number of states they can abuse at will.

Alright, thanks guys. I may just skip the whole thing, and hopefully they'll have learned some lessons for 4 (which admittedly looks fantastic.)

So for those who have played the entire series so far: I've been playing the remastered versions, still in the first game, and it's such a ridiculous slog. Nigh endless waves of enemies, you have two weapons with pathetic amounts of ammo, each enemy takes three or four shots to put down (even from a fucking assault rifle)... I've had several battles already where I just plain ran out of ammo.

Does it ever get any better in games 2 or 3? It's just terminally boring to have to sit through five waves of 5 mercenaries Every.Single.Fucking.Screen.

The puzzles and story are good, but the combat, ugh... If 2 and 3 are just more of the same, I'll probably just watch the story bits on youtube.

We're looking at smaller games and launching them at times of the year where we stay away from that massive fourth quarter craziness

Common sense? From GAMESTOP?

I also think a HD port of RDR to PS4/PC/XBone may be coming,

God, I hope so. I'm even hoping that Rockstar will go "Pre-order RDR2, and we'll throw in the RDR-HD remake for free!"

I will pre-order so fast, it will literally break the space-time continuum.

That's solid work there by Oculus. Nothing better than screwing over your pre-order customers in favor of higher priced bundles.

What the shit? So basically "Shut the fuck up and love it"?

I'm sure for some people, making games is a dream come true. For most devs, however, it's just a job. Same as everyone else. And like everyone else, they're going to get fucking pissed if someone tells them to "just believe it's the greatest thing in the world."

Not everyone has the ability or the opportunity to go indie. And most that DO go indie essentially starve, since they can't make any money.

thats always been the plan - remember that RDR starts after Marston has already retired from his outlaw career

Yeah, it'd just be hard to fit the potential "be good/be evil" playstyle in such a story, when you know that Marston was an Outlaw to the core.

On the flipside, maybe this will mean that they'll finally make playing an Outlaw actually worthwhile, unlike in the first RDR...

John Romero is deservedly blasted and teased by this bitches, but many seem to forget the great games he is at least partially responsible for like Doom, Quake 1, Heretic/Hexen.

Heretic and Hexen were made by Raven Software. JR wasn't involved with those, was he?

a HUGE portion of that game was John Marston. I hope they write another character as fantastic as he was, and find another voice actor as awesome as John Wiethoff.

I saw a rumor this might be a prequel, but that could just be speculation...


That'd work.

I have RDR for the PS3 here....never fired it up. I realize that's apparently some sort of cardinal gaming sin, but out of the marketing material or videos I've watched, or watching a co-worker play it for about half an hour...I've felt no urge to play it.

It's in my top five games of all time. Please don't let the first hour or so turn you off of it, it is an incredible game.

Rockstar did an AMA at reddit and answered the question "What are you guys working on right now" with

Really, Dumbass, Really? Two.

I'd say it's fairly safe to say they are actually working on RDR2.

I absolutely loved RDR, but a HUGE portion of that game was John Marston. I hope they write another character as fantastic as he was, and find another voice actor as awesome as John Wiethoff.

Here is a really cool article about what happened to him.

Fortunately Obama will not sign that GOP bought-and-paid-for, terrible- for-our-country legislation. Hillary...not so sure about her, might depend on how much money the cable companies and telecoms throw at her. I'd like to think she wouldn't, but you can't be sure where she stands on anything.

The sad reality is that the White House will likely veto it in Obama's term, and they'll just bring it before the House/Senate again next year, at which point it'll pass.

This country is so going to fucking hell. Thank you so fucking much, SCOTUS.

Can someone explain to me the backstory behind the "John Romero will make you his bitch" comment?

They ran a completely retarded ad for Daikatana before its release, saying "John Romero's about to make you his bitch."

For awhile it was believed John had decided on that ad campaign, then he at some point released a statement saying it was all the publisher's fault, and so I'm not really sure what the reality of it is. When Daikatana sucked the life out of kittens upon release, that ad pretty much all anyone ever remembered about it (and about JR mostly.)

And here I thought when cliffyb announced/begged that he was coming back to the PC platform, it was about as uninteresting as it could get, but nope. Apparently John needs more money too.

extra 20% off on GMG with code APR20

IX is a good game. I've been looking forward to playing through 12 also, as many people have told me that one is really good also. Runs flawlessly on PCSX2 also, so will probably give that one a shot sometime soon.

12 is fine if you like MMO gameplay. Ie, farm creatures for drops. Because you will do a metric fuckload of that in 12. It makes DA:I look like Witcher 3 in comparison...

Because they keep banning all the fucktards who are using scripts in the game instead of actually fixing the problem.

One generates revenue, the other costs money.
