Most of Tencent's activities have the sole purpose of bringing games to the Chinese market. There is nothing to worry about (yet). Tencent enables the publishers to get access to the Chinese market and Tencent get a piece of the cake in return. There is no need for gloom & doom.

Yup.
I don't get people who worry that something bad may happen before anything bad happens. Like a game? Play a game. Sequel sucks? Play the game, don't play the sequel.

Anyone angry now kind of confuses me. Why care what happens behind the scenes? Care when it impacts the actual game.

Tencent also owns parts of Epic, Blizzard, Frontier, PUBG, Ubisoft, Spotify, and I'm sure I'm missing more games-related ones.

News Comments > No Man's Sky NEXT Adds Multiplayer in July
18. Re: No Man's Sky NEXT Adds Multiplayer in July May 19, 2018, 19:45 Beamer
 
KXMode bought it based on his own ignorance. Sorry, man, all the information was out there before launch. Everything you complain about was known. No multiplayer? Yes, they claimed it would have it in the years before launch, but not the months. The box art clearly said no multiplayer.

This was a bad purchase by you. Your anger needs to be at least partly on yourself for not doing basic research.

Why did no one else here buy it expecting multiplayer that didn't exist? Probably because we need evidence to believe something, and don't just blindly believe the word of some dude.

Honestly, any of these AAA FPS titles could benefit from axing the SP campaign if it truly meant putting those exact same resources into expanded multiplayer. Most people don't even play the SP campaigns for CoD titles, or Battlefield titles. Those that do will usually only do so once. Think of the resources it takes to make a massive map, with all these AI triggers, cinematics, dialogue etc. etc. etc. that will *if lucky* only be witnessed by a player once. Compared to playing fucking Nuketown over and over and over 300 times across the life of a title.

The problem is they WON'T put those resources evenly into MP, they'll still give out a dozen maps at launch, then nickel and dime the players to buy DLC map packs.

While I enjoyed the SP campaigns in MW 1 & 2, the BLOPs campaigns I played were not good. I'd agree to get rid of them in exchange for building out intelligent bots in the MP modes.
I thought general consensus was BLOPs had the better campaigns. I owned BLOPS2 but never took it out of the shrink wrap, so I don't know.

MW/MW2/MW3 had big set pieces but incoherent plots. Incredibly incoherent. Which made it funny when characters returned - who knew who they were? I guess part of it was all the important information was delivered during load screens yet lasted longer then loading, so I didn't watch.

Ghosts, I think, had the best campaign of the Infinity Ward games, by a very wide margin. It also had the worst multiplayer by an even wider margin.

Two shootings today. A lunatic with a gun firing at the ceiling and then at police at a Trump golf course in Miami, then this in TX.

I think I'm officially numb to children dying in schools. That makes me feel horrible, but I'm hardly paying attention to this one. There will just be another next week...

It doesn't change input, so games that aren't touch won't be operable via touch. You need to use bluetooth controllers.

Iím surprised that the restaurant has the non-English speaking employees in a location where theyíre required to interact with customers. If the restaurantís primary customer base speaks Spanish, then this isnít odd at all. If nearly every customer speaks English, then the people they interact with should as well. The Spanish speaking employees shouldnít be deported, but they probably should be moved ever so slightly to a position where they donít have to talk with customers.

They were talking to customers that also spoke spanish. It's midtown Manhattan, half the people there speak a native language other than English.

So ok, then heís just being an entitled asshole, but he IS a lawyer. Itís their job to convince people that they or their client is entitled to something. So while itís shitty behavior, itís also exactly what people want him to be like most of the time when heís working for them. Iím not excusing his behavior, but I do think that his attitude is probably a bit skewed by what heís expected to do daily. If you think YOUR attitude isnít skewed by your job...youíre lying to yourself.

I don't get this. If I'm a butcher, I'm free to run around, cutting people with my cleaver, because we want our butchers to cut people with cleavers?

Here he is screaming at Jewish people that they're not really Jewish. Notice he's with Jovi Val, the guy who made himself famous by running on stage at Shakespeare in Central Park, yelling about Trump.

Here he is screaming outside Trump Tower that he will call ICE on anyone not speaking English

Here he is at a NYC Hispanic Parade, screaming about calling ICE

Here he is, screaming at a random guy who was stopped on the street, calling him an "ugly foreigner," despite it being a white dude from MA

The issue doesn't seem to be being an attorney. Do you know other attorneys that act this way? Can you name any other attorney caught on camera yelling that he'll call ICE on random people even twice, let alone four times? I sure don't. But there are a lot of the same people in these videos, all wearing identical red hats. Maybe the commonality is more there than via profession. Some of those people are on Facebook, saying this guy is innocent. I'm actually surprised a few regular offenders around here aren't saying he was just exercising his first amendment rights, ignoring that so were the employees, and so are people enjoying mocking this guy.

buckle and buy FarCry 5. I know you can pirate it now, but there's no way I'm not supporting that game. I'm betting it'll be very cathartic.
Less than you expect. You spend most of the time chasing missions, without much interesting going on between objectives - the vehicles aren't great, you can usually (and usually will) quick travel right next to where you want to be, and you're moving so quickly that any random event is just something to drive past, anyway.

Worse, once you finish the campaign, you're done. The map is empty. No more bad guys to shoot. You can restart the outposts, but the outposts are much more bland this time around. There's no way to reset the whole map back, or do a NG+, using all of your weapons, skills, and unlocked vehicles to go around killing. Which is extra annoying when they keep having "Club Events" that unlock new things. Not only is there nothing to use them on, but some are near impossible to do when there aren't really any bad guys left to kill.

Game is a 7.5 or 8 out of 10, but nowhere near as strong as FC4 was.

I seem to be in the minority where I was never able to get into Bioshock 1 or 2, but I thought 3 was great. I thought the world and atmosphere in 1 & 2 were amazing, but the game and gameplay overall I didn't find very fun.

I enjoyed 1, until the point that I didn't. Around when everyone started falling in love with it, the wax sculpture guy, I started finding it tedious.

I enjoyed 2, which I actually feel as if I got for free from a cereal box (I got it free somewhere odd), but don't recall any of it at all. Just that it was more of the same with a slight twist, pretty solid, and crapped on somewhat unfairly.

I was mesmerized by 3, again, until I wasn't. Really enthralled, but at some point facing like 5 mechaWashingtons at a time just started sapping the fun out of it for me.

News Comments > State of Decay 2 Reviews
13. Re: State of Decay 2 Reviews May 17, 2018, 12:00 Beamer
 
SAD1 had some catastrophic bugs at launch. Was still mostly fun:

* The most catastrophic bug was that alarms were constantly going off. You couldn't focus on anything else with all the alarms. Chasing after them meant constantly wearing down your team. Not chasing after them meant missing out on potential good things, including new team members or rescuing old ones. But it was exhausting. This was the main reason I quit

* Otherwise, I liked it. I liked the choices and risk. I felt there was a lot to the concept. But the choices and risk also started to feel exhausting, like having to choose between eating only apple pie or cherry pie every day for the rest of your life.

* The other thing that stopped me was combat. Combat felt clunky, at least with a controller. I sometimes felt like I was playing QWOP.

All in all, some seeds of a fun game, but I am a bit too much of a completionist for a game like that. I want to do everything, and the game makes you make choices instead of do everything. Combine that with a bug that has constant alarms you can attend to, and my need to attend to them, and I burnt out fast. But I get how others would love it.

So a 7.5 would have been my rating. Good concept, good execution despite some serious bugs, some people will justifiably love it and some people will justifiably hate it, all for good reasons.


edit - the buggiest game I've ever played was also one of the best, RDR. Crashes to desktop or bugs that prevent progress are awful, but graphical or physics glitches are often just amusing.

BL3 will be entirely in house.

The weird thing is, as I get older, I find myself not caring about delays in any way, shape, or form. I play so few games when they are released, and so few new to me games, period, that delays feel like good news for a better product, not bad news for a long wait.

Realizing that makes me feel really old.

So you settled on Expedition for your boy and Escalade for your daughter. The only thing weird/sad is that would make both their initials E.D. (assuming of course you last name is Dreyer) and the kids would tirelessly tease them with erectile dysfunction jokes.


***If you we going for automobile names, GMC Yukon
