Bad metal, absurd faces, and a GoPro stuck to a scimitar.

Yeah, that's not giving me a lot of confidence.

The other difference was that people who wanted to play HL2 only needed to download an app. Nobody had to buy an extra $1,000 worth of specialized hardware on top of it, plus a PC capable of supporting that hardware.

Steam for HL2: Free
Index + hardware: $1,000-$2,000+

It looks great, but it is pretty disheartening that after 12 years of waiting to see what happens next, they're telling their story in a format that excludes a huge swathe of their most loyal customers. I don't have VR, and can't afford VR.

I'm not worried about Diablo.

Practically every other Blizzard game has microtransactions. WoW has them, Overwatch, even Starcraft. They haven't tried any EA/Bethesda stuff in the years they've been doing them (at least a decade on WoW.)

Psst - see Bethesda? It's called a 'reputation!'

Hopefully that doesn't mean more two-hour, extremely tough missions with no saves.

I wonder if they'll ever merge libraries. I also wonder how Access is going to work. Will the Access library end up split between two different platforms?

Checked out the FO1st site, too. Wasted opportunity. He says he wants to get through to Bethesda, and act as a 'mediator', then creates a site that is a profanity-laden insult fest.

That's not how you get through to your target audience and convince them of your argument. It's how you get them to stop reading after the first sentence. And it isn't the resume for someone you're going to want as a mediator. You pick a mediator who has shown that they can act from a neutral perspective, not someone who is openly, blatantly hostile.

News Comments > Fallout 76 Private Servers Next Week; Wastelanders DLC Delayed

1. Re: Evening Legal Briefs Oct 17, 2019, 20:27 JTW
 
Private servers are a paid service. Also:

Our approach to these items at launch was to keep them purely cosmetic. But after looking at all the data, it became clear that to consistently deliver content that keeps Fallout 76 fresh and exciting for all, we needed to rethink our approach to the Atomic Shop.

Bethesda is starting to look like EA Junior.

"Customers are asking for this."

"Ok, see how we can find a way to charge them for it."

The banned player's stated intent was to use his platform to draw attention to the issue. Whether Blizzard budges or not, he's succeeded.

Frogwares, I can get your games listed again. But there is something we'd like you to do though. Investigate Joe Biden.

The fact that the pink unicorn said this on camera made me laugh out loud, and I am not usually one for laughing at the news. Like, I think he has a medical condition or something, there is no way someone can be this mentally stupid to literally fuel the allegations by DOING THE EXACT SAME THING A 2ND TIME, ON CAMERA.

Thank you Americans, for giving a bored European some entertainment in the news.

Yeah, now we get to know what the people on FailArmy feel like.

Enjoy our shame and humiliation.

Possibly. It certainly sounds villainous, but I try not to judge until I hear both sides. I've seen enough "Egads!" events like this that turned out to be something very different than what was claimed.

That didn't clarify. It confirmed what people were pissed about. They already understood just fine.

we are working hard to make sure this is the best Call of Duty we’ve ever made and the best experience possible for fans.

If the fans on the PS4 get something more than the rest of them, then you aren't working to make it the best experience for the fans. Just for PS4 fans. The rest get something less.

On mallards, the bright green/gray coloration is seasonal. They're colorful in the winter and spring, but molt and take on more subtle colors after breeding season.

There are other ways to tell them apart, assuming that they're pure mallard. First, males have yellow bills; females have orange/brown bills. Males also have a softer voice, while the females have a very harsh, loud quack.

News Comments > Borderlands 3's Successful, Buggy Launch

36. Re: Evening Legal Briefs Sep 15, 2019, 11:39 JTW
 
FWIW, I run the thing with great performance on a mix of high and ultra settings at 1080. My system is an i5 4670k and 8 gigs of RAM (so horribly out of date) and and RTX 2060 (new and fast.) That suggests to me that this system is more dependent on video cards than anything, as most games choke on my CPU and RAM long before the video card can compensate.

Metacritic user scores are as useless a reference as they've ever been. If you look a little closer, almost all of the scores are either 9-10 or 0-1 with very little in between. That absolutely screams of review bombing, likely by the Epic haters who see this as a prime target to 'get back' at the boogeyman they invented.

I hope so. Dogma is, arguably, one of the worst games I've ever played. It's not hard to top it.

You must not have played many games.

No Denuvo. Good.

No open world. That's great news. I don't need another thousand collectibles and filler quests that, should I spend the time, unbalances the main game.

No mod support. Eh, no big deal, as long as it doesn't have issues.

No DLC. Shrug. We've had DLC since the ancient days of PC games. They were called 'expansion packs' back then, and you got them at the store (normally for $20), but they were the same thing. Of course they were always content, not skins, not perks, not material pulled from the base game to sell separately.
