Remember Startopia? I wonder if this is anything like that beyond having a similar theme.

Fallout 76: The clusterfuck that keeps on fucking.

I wonder if Todd is going to get as many cheers and applause when he next goes on stage somewhere to reveal a new game. Their reputation is totally in the shitter now.

I especially enjoy the videos that play clips of the disastrous final product over soundbytes of Howard making false claim after false claim at the E3 conference. "It just works". LOL.

What? What are you talking about?

The 30% off revenue Valve takes off the top of every sale is outrageous.

News Comments > Rumor Update: Star Wars Cancellation Was for Smaller Game
1. Re: Rumor Update: Star Wars Cancellation Was for Smaller Game Jan 16, 2019, 10:42 Prez
 
I spend the largest portion of my game browsing time on Steam (mostly because there is a cubic fuckton of shit to sift through) and honestly, I am glad that EA games aren't on there. With the trash the company is and being only interested in shitting out "recurrent user spending" vectors instead of games they have become quite easy to ignore. Ubisoft is heading in the same direction and also are beginning to retreat into their own little money-grubbing corner of the world, which again I appreciate them doing. Now if only the fucksticks at Activision would follow suit...

Well, it was free, so you're not losing anything, right?

You're kidding right? I know of more than a few people who have spent over $100 on Warframe, to use one example. Statistics I've seen show that a pretty significant percentage of players of F2P games pay a lot more into a game than the typical AAA $60 msrp game.

Holy shit this is ugly. Randy Pitchford is a known liar and a charlatan but child pornography accusations??? That's one hell of an accusation to make. That's an accusation that you had better be able to back up with evidence, like pedophilia and rape. People who falsely accuse others of such things ought to be shot.

VaranDragon wrote on Jan 10, 2019, 02:21:
Is there anyone who actually thought the Division was good?

By the time I dove into it there was a ton of updates and additional content, so I spent well over 100 hours in it. The back-story was satisfyingly gritty and dark, and the world was very well-realized. Some of the side-quests were excellent (the one where you find the doc's ex-wife out in the street playing piano was surprisingly touching). It's just a shame that from beginning to end the story went basically nowhere. I found the fights immensely satisfying and the gameplay loop was very rewarding to me. I am still hoping that the sequel addresses my two biggest concerns - plot advancement and enemy variety - but I'm going to wait and see before buying.

I don't see this working out too well. Valve has gotten fat, lazy, and greedy but Steam is still the de facto place to buy digital download games. There really isn't a close second. I expect it's a limited time exclusivity deal with Epic since exclusivity is the only selling point they have.

No one should ever quit their job due to racial abuse. The EEOC has an easy process for filing a Federal hostile work environment claim and something like this would easily qualify. Surely he was aware of this?

As excited about the game as I am and how much I would like to play the demo I want to go in to it as blind as possible. RE2 is my favorite game of all time and I want to do as much as I can to recapture the excitement and uncertainty of the game like it's 1998.

I haven't been this excited about a release in a very long time.

I feel the same. RE2 on the PS1 was a sublime, magical experience for me and an updated one using modern tech is enough to make me as giddy as a schoolgirl. There aren't a lot of bright spots in gaming anymore but I hope this will be one of them.

You think modern console games aren't online-only?

The newest Zelda, Mario, God of War, Spiderman, Death Stranding, the Last of Us 2, Detroit, and dozens of others either out now or will be this year. What does PC have? 50 more battle royale games and dozens of live services.

My first add-in gfx card was a 3DFX Voodoo but I can't remember what it cost, only that for the time it wasn't at all cheap. Maybe it's because I'm older now but I don't view any gfx card under $450-$500 to be high end these days.

In the last few generations, $500 was the top end about half the time, with $700 being the top end the other half of the time.

Now it's:
$1300 top end (2080ti) (That's on the cheap side. More like $1500 if you want something in stock)
$750 upper-mid level (2080)
$550 for mid level (2070)
$350 for lower-mid (2060)

(and eventually the 2050 will be the rock bottom (for I'm guessing $250?))


Ironically, unlike earlier generations, the 2080ti isn't even a complete chip - it has sections disabled. So it's actually more related to the 1080 (not the 1080ti, which was a complete chip without sections disabled).

Today you need to spot for the RTX titan to get a complete chip, which will run you $2500.

And all while 8 bit side-scrollers are winning pc game of the year.

Hey a great game is a great game. And just you wait til Dead Cells 2 comes out in VR with raytracing!

Their statement, specifically the "substantially similar to and/or derivative of" makes me just shake my head. Being similar and or derivative is not a breach of copyright. Never has been, and hopefully never will be. But everyone hates Brad Wardell so let's ignore the fact that this could set a legal precedent that could basically destroy gaming.
