AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

I'll let you guys know how awesome it is!


I'm sure it will be, but it's Rockstar's loss ultimatively.

Is it?

They're the ones with the full knowledge of how much it would take to build, test, market and launch the game for the PC at the same time as consoles, as well as with a strong understanding of how much money they'd make for having done that.

This is just a small group of PC gamers going "well, they won't get my $60."

I'd wager it's more the loss of people who only game on one platform than anything else.

What year is it?

Consoles are PC's, they're developing the game on PC's for low-end PC's (today's consoles).

the only thing they're skipping out on is needing to test the game on different PC specifications, something which modern development tools are quite capable of performing software analysis on.

This is a bean counter maneuver, why sell just one copy when a lot of those console people will buy a second copy on the PC platform.

Rockstar: Making Console Gaming Great Again


They're not PCs. Similar internals, but different OSs, by and large, and testing is dramatically different. Dramatically.

And yes, GTAV did well on PCs. We don't know this won't make it to PCs at some point, with there not being enough resources to get it out at the same time as consoles and it not being worth delaying the console release when GTAV still sold well 18 months later.

We also don't know what kind of costs they plan in order to get the game out on PCs. We can sit here and speculate, but anyone that thinks they're leaving money on the table because "because," is being kind of naive and foolish, no? Much like anyone saying "M$" in 2016.

I'll buy a used XBONE, play this for a month, then sell this and the XBONE.

Problem solved. While I had a PS3 and Xbox 360 last gen, I just don't see much of a reason to own a console now. Too old, too little time to play anything.

Just Hillary having a practice run at cutting internet on anyone with dissenting views over her.

That might carry slightly more water if Wikileaks and Assange weren't foreign agents interfering in the election/proper government operations... by leaking documents suggesting that foreign entities might be interfering in government operations.

Its called putting the truth out on a lying corrupt piece of garbage.

Just wait till you see (and choose to ignore and or justify) all the criminal activity being released about the Clinton machine today.

Not that the Marxist "main stream media" will cover it. These things don't comply with their brain washing agenda.

Why wouldn't they release all this criminal activity first? Why wait until half of America has tuned out because they see these leaks have still largely been "The DNC didn't like Bernie Sanders, after Bernie Sanders spent an entire career calling them morons then switched sides solely to run for president?"

Thus far, no smoking guns, and this is coming from someone that was a Bernie fan. Why would they not lead with the smoking gun, if such exists? Generally, you lead with your best (unless you have a captive audience.)

Man, PC gamers can be really fragile. "That time you didn't make a game for my preferred platform you hurt my feelings. I'll never buy a game from you again!"

These are business decisions tied to budgets and resources, something RDR went significantly over for both counts. We're lucky we got it at all.

Oh man can't wait for this. If they did a story based on a whole gang that would be pretty rad.

Other speculation is that it's signifying multiplayer, which makes the game much more dull to me. I know I'm the exception as far as voting $$$s go, but I have zero interest in playing this stuff online.

She didn't tackle him at all (played for 9 years), she just ran into him. It was a "look at me in the NFL" tackle. Which is why so many "tackles" are missed. I call them hockey hits. A tackle is a wrap up. This was a hit.

/in fact the runner could have avoided the hit if he was paying attention. They are fairly easy to avoid. Up high hit, just get low and move.


Thank you. Exactly. You first have to understand what a tackle is. That wasn't a tackle.

Per the NFL rule book, that was a tackle. Sorry, guys.

Cool, they are patching the game. Now if they could only patch the broken folks who pre-order games.

Absolutely. I was one of those broken people to preorder. I thought I did significant homework, but it all came down to Sean and his word. Well, NMS taught me a vital lesson. Never trust anyone, especially a millennial in a flannel shirt with an "aww shucks" demeanor. As far as warning people from preordering. You did it. Total Biscuit has done it. Unfortunately, there is a long way to go. Check out what happened when someone tried to warn Steam users from the pain of preorder disappointment on Shadow Warrior 2. Vitriol, to say the least.

He's 37 or 38, not a millenial.

May I be the one to dramatically lower the intellectual level? I absolutely love Ash vs. Evil Dead. Childish, totally over the top, hilarious, going beyond everything that is decent, and with only one goal: to make you laugh your ass off while shaking your head in denial of what you have just watched.

I felt like Deadpool tried too hard to shock. Yet, I found Ash vs Evil Dead's butt scene last week hysterical.
There's good lowered intellectual level and bad, and AvED is good to me.

The game is fun, but it's definitely more ARPGish than straight up FPS, in terms of the sheer amount of loot drops, mob types(elites, etc.) and configurable weapons and skills.

I realize that might not be everyone cup of tea (or what they expect from the franchise) but that actually sounds more exciting to me. A review I watched last night also mentioned the drops and weapons.

Might bump this up a few notches in the list...


The weapons were the lowest part of the last game for me. Well, and the kind of lame skill upgrades, and the boss battles that you did a few dozen times over the course of the game.

But loot drops make it more interesting for me, too. I bought the last one for $4.99 or some such, and played the whole damn thing even though I kind of gritted my teeth through most of it, and will probably find myself doing it here, too.

No way this compares to Doom for me, though. Doom was the best pure FPS I've played in ages. Ages. Since HL4, most likely. Also, that's a typo I'm not changing, because I have no clue what I'm thinking to be that far ahead of myself.

And don't be a dumbass like me and buy the physical X1 version from Amazon with their 20% physical ONLY discount, because once you receive it you'll find out it doesn't support Microsoft's "Play Anywhere" feature.

Digital only kids!

Let's see, physical=disc mfg, packaging, promotional materials, stickers, delivery. Digital=a code. Yet digital is $59.99 & Physical is $47.99. Makes complete sense to me, really!

I was fully intending to play it on the PC@4k and let the kids play it on the X1, but nope.

Keep on being you, Microsoft.

I'm guessing so you can't Gamefly/Redbox it and get it free on the PC without ever truly paying for it.

Still seems small minded. The amount of people that will buy this on the PC seems small, regardless. Penalizing Xbone owners to preserve a small percentage of a small percentage seems misguided.

I typically find the whole "you're a sockpuppet/shill" argument moronic and, itself, paranoid, but both those guys do seem to use ellipses repeatedly (as do I, but...) and also seem to be the only people I've seen to put a space not only after, but before.

Man that game looks so mediocre, I can't believe it has spawned 3 sequels.

I got banned from Polygon for implying the 9.0 given to it from the review was part of some quid pro quo arrangement, and I'm not even a #gamergate guy. Big time releases are ALWAYS showered with 9/10, 9.0, 9.5! These games are essentially shovelware that's guaranteed to make a profit because of name recognition and the install base. Cover shooters? In 2016? Jesus. PC Gaming Master Race 4 Life.

Polygon will ban anyone who is even a tiny bit critical. They posted an opinion article a while back talking about how Game of Thrones shouldn't have won an Emmy because there was some other show the author liked better. So I commented and said that I was surprised they didn't suggest Supergirl and Flash win an Emmy, given how many articles Polygon writes about those two awful shows. BANNED!

If you don't weed out the people just there to complain, the people that enjoy the community come less frequently and it becomes all complainers.

Someone giving baseless accusations of them being shills because they liked a game he didn't? Why should they keep him around? You complaining that they like TV shows you find awful? Why should they keep you around? You can take your business elsewhere and keep their community for people like them.

Many people on this site have said it would be nice if those just here to say "that sucks, this game sucks, you suck, everything I don't like sucks." They're just doing that. And they need to, given that there's a subreddit basically dedicated to whining about Polygon sucking. Those people could easily overrun the place. Just better to have them take their business elsewhere.

Wow, so this explains why the recalls didn't fix it then.... all they did is put a black dot on the package and called it a day. Since how would they change anything when they don't change production?

So as the whole recall a scam?

Where'd you get that from? It wasn't in the article.

Samsung actually replaced the "faulty" batteries with ones from a different supplier. Problem is, the original supplier (a Samsung subsidiary) says the original batteries were to spec and fine, the issue was that the case was too tight and putting undue pressure on the batteries, causing the malfunction. While I haven't seen this verified, this would explain why changing the batteries makes no difference.

And this is true to an extent, but a great many of our laws are based upon Christian and puritan ideals.

Just read Griswold v Connecticut, and the following cases, and cringe that it happened in our country in a time that a handful of posters here were alive.

PSVR's camera and controllers approach feels like they had a huge warehouse full of them from when they failed previously, and they used them instead of better-tracking devices just to dump old stock and not have to invest in new tech.

They could have used Lighthouse tech, putting a single cube up instead of a camera, with controllers that track insanely well, but that would have been something truly NEW. It's an incredibly more precise system, although mirrors and certain fluorescent light bulbs can confuse it. For the incredible precision VR demands, there will always be environmental things that will fuck with it, and people may have to adjust their decorating accordingly.

If Sony doesn't come out with a better-tracking solution by the time Scorpio comes out (along with Oculus Rift support), they're gonna become the VR pariah.

$499.99, including input. Rift and Vive will run you $300 more. Of course it's cheaper and using lesser tech. But, at the price point, it has a higher chance of success.
