News Comments > Chasm Opens Up

If I can't cut off arms with circular saw blades I'm not playing. Pfft, "Chasm."

Anyway, Darks, people here frequently post that misleading image trying to show that FPS level design in the 1990s was superior to now. I think lots of people want a more simple game sometimes. And there's a lot of depth and cool mechanics you can add to a platformer now that you couldn't back then.

When I first saw this, that was the Chasm that came to mind. Played the hell out of it back in the day. Wonder if it's on GOG?

Same thing as John Romero. He spoke purely from his ego and the PC Elite really can't stand hubris paired with mediocre products.

CliffyB brought us the Unreal series, and for older gamers Jazz Jackrabbit. The guy didn't push mediocre shit. Unreal is one of my favorite games of all time.

The Gears of War games that he had influence over are very good titles, and to say otherwise is just to be a blind master race tool. You might not agree with his decision to abandon the platform, but his words aren't without merit -- DRM free games are the extreme exception nowadays and despite repeatedly bleating about DRM being the devil and to boycott companies that use it, Steam and other digital platforms have taken over.

And for those of you that mourn the single player experience? The decline there is also partly due to piracy (and is why always-on DRM is here to stay).

You can hate him all the same, but his resume stands as one of the strongest in the industry. Even Lawbreakers was a decent game, just not good enough to compete with Overwatch and a changing landscape of what the majority of gamers want.

And Blizzard is offering full refunds to those that cannot meet the new requirements right?
I personally have never bought, or played it, but if anyone's computer does not match the new minimum requirements, by law, they are required to to offer a full refund of the price the person paid, or some way to play the game in another way.
There is already case presidence for this.

It's a free to play game.

I got a free CD Key sent to me a while back as a gift and was stoked. Quake 2 is my favorite game of all time. Turns out the game is dead, and after 20 minutes in queue for my first match, it popped and I was in a lobby against super experienced players.

News Comments > Fortnite Accounts Hijacked
3. Re: Fortnite Accounts Hijacked Mar 12, 2018, 23:50 |RaptoR|
 
I am a Senior Network Engineer by trade. Been in the industry for over 15 years. I use Dashlane to generate passwords for all of my logins, so each one is unique and rotated quarterly.

My Epic account was hijacked last month, and I had made the unfortunate mistake of having my Paypal account linked for automatic billing. I had 3 transactions for $109.99 each (the max size of Fortnite currency that can be purchased in one go), all at 10am EST while I was at work.

I immediately opened a case, reset the account password, unlinked Paypal, and started the dispute process. Paypal denied the dispute, because to them it looked like a legit charge. 17 days passed on the Epic ticket before I tracked down their community team on Reddit and sent a PM to each and every one of them explaining what was going on. To their credit, I got the refund and hour later -- but holy shit, 17 days without so much as a "case created" email?

I attached transaction logs from Paypal, email receipts from the store, so on and so forth.

Anyway, I'm really only replying to say this:

My Epic account password was unique to Epic Games, and it was hijacked.

Here's what I propose to prevent mass shootings:

- Must get a full background check before getting a mental illness.

- A three day waiting period before you can develop a mental illness.

- You can't develop a mental illness before turning 21 years of age.

- You're not allowed to develop a mental illness if you've ever committed a crime, even a misdemeanor.

- You're not allowed to get unlimited mental illnesses. There needs to be some reasonable limitation, say three.

- No concealed mental illnesses.

- No acquisition of mental illness from unauthorized and unlicensed vectors.

- No acquisition of mental illness over the internet.

With those kinds of restrictions, mass shootings should be greatly reduced.


Since we clearly can't manage the mental illness part, then we need to manage the assault rifle part. Yep, no more guns for you.

Same deal when one kid fucks up the entire group gets punished. I don't care if you think you're a responsible gun owner, there's one out there that isn't and they just shot up a school. No assault rifles for you. Bad, no no

The last half of your comment invalidates the first half by a rather large margin. If you can sit here and tell me that X: Rebirth has more value and plays better than Elite:Dangerous with a straight face then your opinion is highly suspect.

*waits for the inevitable reply that I'm an idiot, not worth listening to, should shut my fucking mouth and, oh, my mother was a whore*

What we need to be really concerned about is whether MS will buy CD Projekt Red and make future Witcher and Cyberpunk games Xbox exclusives. It's currently worth $2B, which is close to what MS paid for Minecraft.

Don't give them ideas!

As for Valve, Gabe's cash is largely on paper. This would make it liquid. That's why Epic sold.

Huh? You see valve marketplace recently? Printing cash.


Ya I don't get this.

CSGO alone has sold 39million copies ($195million if all bought at a $5 sale price, a large chunk was not, likely $300m+ earned.). DOTA and CSGO market transactions bring in millions every year.

They're like an over filled atm shooting cash out. I picture Gaben as caricature trying to grab the money as it flies out of his pockets as he walks, sporting a shit eating grin wearing a stained lambda shirt on while hordes of HL fans obsess over him. And that's not counting his money power house Steam (30% of every sale of the vast majority of the biggest gaming market on the planet.)

There is zero reason for him to sell Valve, even if Steam is the money maker and Valve is relatively inactive (I don't think it is, but that's a different discussion) it still brings in millions.

I would imagine any acquisition of Valve would involve a spin-off of Steam to its own company. Seems all they've been interested in over the past few years anyway

It's a $500 device with a selling point of "lots of third party patches to enhance games". Very unimpressive, Microsoft really sucks this generation. They need to invest in some first party studio partnerships again, all of their franchises are hitting franchise fatigue territory and when one of your tent poles is "Super Lucky's Tale" then you've got some issues to address.

I wouldn't single out Microsoft: Sony released the PS4 Pro which is the exact same deal. Stronger hardware that requires patching to take advantage of. The difference maker is the VR headset already available for the Sony crowd, but I wager that you'll hear more about Microsofts headsets and Xbox support in the coming months anyway.

Worship of this pewdiepie tool needs to stop. What a moron. You don't let something like an n-bomb slip without casually using it in your everyday life. And to think: if I let this slip during work I'd be fired on the spot, and my job is infinitely more intense and stressful than his. Absurd.

Sheesh, don't you people ever get sick of the cliche negativity about almost everything?

Blue's comment section has been a cesspit for some time. I tried for a period to call people out on always being so negative, and it just falls on deaf ears. There are quite a few good posters but the loud always-negatives drown out anything worthwhile.

CJ_Parker, Cutter are the biggest offenders by a long shot.

Yeah, just ran through it and did the drop in co-op map too and was totes unimpressed with it all. The visuals are nice, as to be expected, but the sauce was weak with everything else. No maps - overhead and mini, no journal, shitty console UI is a real PITA where you can't even compare items side by each, nothing to intereact with or do on the map except get slightly confused as to where you're going and why, so you just run from start to finish with all the predictable enemy drops.

This is it? This is the much-hyped Destiny? Fuck, console players are easily impressed aren't they? This is just some bullshit hamster-wheel grind-fest. Yeah, I'll probably get around to giving it a playthrough in a couple of years when it's $5 or less. I could easily skip it entirely and likely will by that point.

Just curious.

What games DO you play, and actually enjoy?

Downloading this console peasant garbage as we speak . Let's see... so far this year's record holder for fastest uninstall on my side is the Titanfall 2 free trial which flew off my SSD after less than 10 minutes. Can Destiny 2 beat 10 minutes? Looking at the cheesy dumbass console kiddie trailers I have a feeling we might have a new winner here!

P.S.: What is this shit? 900KB/s download??? I thought Blizztard had nuff money for servers?? Guess not...

Getting 11 MB/s on my download. Time to ditch the DSL, I think.

I remember back in the day when I was playing SimCity 3000 and mentioned it would be nice to drive in the city and someone mentioned Streets of SimCity. I'm still surprised no one has done anything like that with newer city builders, seems like a no-brainer if you can get a 3D Map generator going in this age of DLC, you could sell activity packs like racing, transport (train driving, bus driving etc), shooting, maybe an emergency services where you get to fight fires, drive an ambulance etc.


I played SimCopter more than the proper Sim City games back in the day. I'd be in favor of this approach

I've been having a ton of fun with the game. It's basically "instant action" DayZ. You struggle for a good kit, and then plot out your course within the bubble to best suit your style.

Some folks play aggressive, hunter killers. Some will stay on the outskirts of the bubble picking off transitioners. Some go to the middle and wait it out.

Tons of appeal to me, mostly because it's not the same formula I've been playing since 1994.

Bungie has not had a great track record of PC ports, in house or out but I will still probably pre-order this. Being a living, ongoing concern released almost at the same time as the consoles should make them iron out the plentiful issues it's sure to have.

However when it comes to weapon handling, variation and polish there is no equal. There are guns from this game I remember from 3 years ago. The gunfeel with controllers is amazing. The sound, rumble, recoil, animation all made wielding Hawkmoon, Thorn, Last Chance, Word of Crota and their ilk feel so fucking badass in PvP and PvE and the blues/purples you would get for beating a raid or the odd strike always felt so epic. There is a handcrafted quality to all their shit that you just don't get in most loot games. Sure you disenchant most the stuff you find but there was always something awesome to work or hope for and enjoy the fuck out of once you scored it or be jealous of teamates who had.

Agreed. I never got tired of Vision of Confluence or the Vex Mythoclast. And any scout rifle felt amazing too
