I picked up Mad Max for $6.79 and Satellite Reign for $4.49.


Swweeeeet, thanks for reminding me about Satellite Reign. Picked that up with just a few hours left in the sale.

Great games on that list, but my God, how did NMS ever make it on there...? There really are a LOT of people who fall hook, line and sinker for bullshit hype.

The lead writer for BL2 left almost two years ago, and IMO it was the comedy that helped make it so fun.


That, and fun levels. The shooter mechanic was pretty much untouched from the first one, and was serviceable, but it had fun places to visit and explore, and of course Handsome Jack (and the voice actor) completely made that game into the gem it was.

It'll be hard to live up to that, and I'm worried they're going to try to put Handsome Jack into BL3, somehow, so who knows how this is all going to work out.

Even so, Gearbox is very very very very very far from dying, despite what the 0.011 batting average Ars Technica "Death Squad" thinks.

even though the whole HDR thing for consoles runs ATI.

Can you elaborate? I feel like HDR is just one of those things that is confusing people. Outputting HDR to a TV and HDR lighting in games aren't the same thing.

This has been a huge deal with convincing people that HDR is worth it. Pretty much every gamer goes "HDR? We've had that since The Lost Coast. What's the big deal?"

That the HDR we've had in games has been sorta flaky HDR that's nowhere near real HDR is not really common knowledge. I think the TV industry might have been better off just calling it like AWESOMECOOLLIGHTS or somethings.

Hello, Games? Anyone? The combined onslaught of negative PR, ratings, reviews, and loathing for No Man's Sky's promotion has to be hitting HG's bottom line. While it's reasonable to conclude that they made a lot of money from preorders and early purchases, I imagine those days are long gone. Coupled that with their continued investment into NMS. How is HG not on the list?

If you'd bothered to read the article, you'd see they actually mention Hello Games, but also say that for some unfathomable reason, NMS keeps selling copies.

This entire paragraph from Ars' article made me gigglesnort.

This time, for sure. We've listed BlackBerry in one form or another on the Deathwatch ever since we started the list. Last year, we narrowed our grimness to a specific aspect of the company—its mobile operating system—as it became clear (despite one Ars editor's faint praise) that BlackBerry OS and associated phones were headed the way of the dodo. Guess what? We were right.

WHOA! You guys were right?! For the first time! AMAZING!

You fuckers make Michael Pachter look like Nostradamus.

Borderlands pre-sequel

That was a different studio, wasn't it?

Outside of BL2, I'd say their track record is abysmal.


Yeah I couldn't think offhand whether they had been involved in releasing it at all. It's even sadder for them if they weren't, because it was the one so-so title in a list of shit.

Oh, I forgot the Homeworld remaster. That actually was pretty good. No idea how it sold though.

I agree with the skepticism for the insane decisions of a Duke Nukem re-release and charging an absolutely hilarious $60 for an HD remake of a game that nobody bought the first time around, but Gearbox is working on Borderlands 3 (by their own admission), and they and 2K know that it will sell millions and millions of copies, plus many more millions of DLCs.

They're going nowhere.

That said, after Borderlands 2, they've done Aliens:CM, Battleborn, Duke Nukem Forever, Duke 3d re-release, Borderlands pre-sequel and a Bulletstorm re-release. That's five pretty bad releases and one so-so release in a row. They really need to hit it out of the park with Borderlands 3, and I think that means more than just making four new characters with essentially the same set of powers and some new maps.

All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions. In October, my Administration publicized our assessment that Russia took actions intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.

Which is different from the dozens of times the US interfered with election processes around the world... how?

*crickets*

In any case, I'm sure Russia is terrified of us now. You showed 'em, Obama!

Wow. Must live a real interesting, busy life that he has to come back to a place where no one likes him and is constantly forced to leave against his wishes.

Plenty of people like him, he often has solid comments. He just tends to get a little too arrogant/patronizing from time to time, which leads to him getting banned again.

I'll take him over quite a few others.

"No, just turn the BSoD green. Progress!"


Thanks Microsoft. Great to know you're on the ball.

Did the TIEs always jitter that much? I mean, technically according to the lore they should be able to do that, but it's annoying as hell to play a game where every opponent is just able to instantaneously alter their momentum and vector that way...

Obviously he needs a good team to help make his vision reality, but we've seen some FFs without Sakaguchi, and they've just not been the same.

I'm looking forward to seeing what he'll come up with.

"Windows 10" and "Enhanced PC gaming experience" are not phrases that exist in the same universe. Nothing MS does with PC gaming ever enhanced anything.

Nah, that's not true. DirectX has done phenomenal stuff for gaming (at least once the first few horrible versions were out of the way).

But after DX9 it's been basically a long downhill slide.
