The tech is toast because game developers are not even using the technology. Or using it poorly.

Also at times their code is so bad it actually causes issues to have it turned on.

I don't give a crap about consoles, but I wonder what's up Sony's but about crossover games on the PS4.
Considering the stupid as fuck path the jackasses at Bethesda are going with 76 who gives a fuck about the game itself?

If they hever make a "fallout 5" they are going to be hard pressed to win me back.

Were you this upset with Brotherhood of Steel and New Vegas? Todd Howard has already stated that Fallout 5, TES 6 and Starfield will be exclusively single player built upon the engine improvements brought on by 76 and then some.

Ahh no why would I be? I want another NV. Not the boiled down crap that Fallout 4 was.

As a solo queuer the game can be quite brutal at times actually. Overwatch accentuates team cohesion heavily over individual skill (although a highly skilled Genji, Tracer, or Hanzo can still dominate a match) and along with that team composition supersedes team skill most of the time. A highly skilled team can easily lose to an average skilled team full of hard counter heroes. I like Overwatch because I'm only average at best and have terrible reaction times but as long as I play smart, know the heroes' strengths and weaknesses, and work with the team I can have a positive impact and help the team win. Not a lot of other team based shooters I've played can do that.
What golden cloud server do you play on? QP is nothing but double snipers, no tank, no healer, throwers. rank 300 people partying with rank 5 people making your team 5v6. Gold kills in both total and on point, 10k healing and still losing matches.

Really? You eat at lousy restaurants. How often do you eat out?
Why is just doing their job bad? Why does everyone think every server needs to suck their cock?

Personally I think tipping is fucking stupid and needs to fucking die in a fire. Pay people a regular fucking wage.

I had a pizza delivery person get all pissy I left no tip. I was like "I have to pay extra for you to do your fucking job? And you didnt even fucking do that because I had to come down here to get my food you entitled prick?" Lived in an apartment at the time. EVERY other delivery place came up. There is no lock or code on the building door.

Interesting article about the restaurant rating system. I don't typically patronize chain restaurants, but on the rare times I've had a tablet I've always rated Max. Customer s should rate servers through tipping, not through a tablet.
Like these tablets tipping needs to go away.

Gears 5 for win10 isn’t a surprise; Gears 4 was as well. The part they don’t mention is if PC players will be allowed to play against console in any way. I understand the whole controller vs kB/mouse, all they need to do is say “you can play against console if you use a controller”. Yes, there will be crybabies who want an impossibly unfair advantage, but most people HAVE a controller, and are probably willing to deal with it so they don’t have empty game lobbies.

And Fawker, they DID come to pc at the start, but gears 2 and 3 never did. Shame, that. Gears 4 is a new storyline that needs only the barest knowledge of the first three.
Honslty if you are playing a FPS game with a controller on PC you need your head checked.

Besides this is Gears of War we are talking about. Far from a even remotely stellar game. Reminds me of the garbage DOOM clones of the late 90's.

Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot. Cover, shoot.

Goes around, comes around? And thus we ended up with EA games only on Origin... Although in this case, there's no way of circumventing Apple's walled garden.
What Steam did was for the better of the user. EA wanted to be pricks.

Steams rules said if you release any kind of DLC for a game you have on steam it must be available on steam. EA wanted their games on steam but forcing you to go to EA's site to get DLC.

Crysis 3 I think was the first to violate. They had Crysis 3 on steam but only way to get the DLC map or whatever it was was to go to EA's website and get it there.

It is fucking annoying to install ME2 from steam then get 8-12 packages from EA to add on the DLC content. Steam wanted it seamless because of this exact bullshit.

Bullshit driver.

The old manual install method where you extract everything and then only keep the essential folders for a bloat-free (and especially telemetry-free) install, no longer works.

So, you probably have to full install and then get rid of the telemetry crap post-installation but I'm not gonna bother. Skipping this piece of shit driver and hoping the next driver will allow manual installs again just like they used to work for ages up until now.
You are obviously high.

You can unpack the EXE with 7-zip. Also the installer lets you check and uncheck what you want like it has for years.

Half ass skippable. Every game AT LEAST needs a config option or command line code to skip this bullshit.

- Unskippable opening videos.
- Unskippable in game videos/cutscenes.
- No quicksave.
- One save slot.
- No reloading back saves if you want to try something different when attacking a base.
- Nasty bug where the game sets your mic to 100% in windows blowing out the eardrums of other people on discord.
- Idiotic co-op progression. If you are the 'guest' your progress/unlocks do not save.

This feels like shitty console bullshit shoved down our throats liek games from around 2005.
