This looks pretty cool. If I was looking for a handheld gaming system this would be the one I'd choose.

Considering that No Man's Sky sold over 2 million copies in its preorders and first week sales I think Sean Murray is just fine. Of course he is only human and he absolutely shouldn't be harassed or threatened over a game that fell short of what was pitched and sold to the public. But this kind of behavior, be it from a huge publisher or a small indie, should always be called out. Companies that do what Hello Games did with No Man's Sky and what Gearbox did with Colonial Marines should be taken to task for their actions. If they aren't then what would stop them from doing it again and again? If it really is a case of naivety and wide-eyed enthusiasm run out of control instead of something more nefarious then Sean Murray needs to take his lumps, own up to the mistakes, and make sure he learns from the experience for his future endeavors in the industry.

Exactly. Even if gaming PC's doubled in sales every year the overall market would still be shrinking. My company is still running on 4 year old PC's and there really isn't any reason to upgrade - all the modern software runs fine on them. I'm sure this is the case everywhere.

I did not like Ubiplay at all and I DESPISED Origin when they both came out. But now I use all 3, though Steam is the only one I leave running in the background. To me Steam is the best of the three by a large margin for various reasons.

And Prez has them all! Glad to see he's back in the land of the living, he was away for awhile.

I currently have about 18% of them (around 1800). I certainly echo the common sentiment that a large portion of the Steam catalog is utter garbage. I may not be the most discerning gamer but even I have some standards!

PVE content? Is Overwatch dying already, or was that part of the plan all along?

I imagine it was the plan all along. It worked for TF2.

Has anyone tried the PVE yet? How is it?

Still waiting for $20-$30 sale price before I buy it. Luckily I saw enough of the leaked footage to hold me off and wait for reviews.

It's not even worth that. In its current form, it's a $10 game.

It's not even worth that. In its current form, it's a $5 game.

Okay I'll keep this going...


It's not even worth that. In its current form, it's a 25¢ game.

The Bible's view and the belief of millions are that humans have the capacity to live much longer than 115 years. The Bible states we have the capacity to live forever and were designed to do just that. It even says in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that God "has even put eternity in their heart," which explains why so many people believe they can live forever today. Unfortunately, inherited Adamic sin mars our ability to do so. (Romans 5:12) The good news is this miserable condition will soon be expunged. (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:4) After that, age, cellular degradation, and a multitude of other infirmities will no longer have a stranglehold on our lives. We will, in effect, have perpetual lifespans.

I know many of you don't hold these views. I would kindly ask that you be tolerant of a point of view you don't have.

First thing I thought when I saw that article link was that after Moses man's days were numbered 120 years.

I'm not a Christian but my ex-wife was. From what I remember of the Old Testament yes this is correct from a theological standpoint. I however agree that science will likely have broken that barrier within the next 100 years. But if the way things work now is any indication I suspect only the very rich will be able to afford whatever genetic and cellular manipulation would be required for such artificial longevity.

That's an odd assertion. I don't think it really works that way, especially since most sites are in agreement that it is only an average game.

I must be old school but I don't keep games on my SSD
I have a 5TB WD black drive with all my games on it.

I run the OS and Steam on an SSD but all my games are on a 2TB drive. It's very fast. Fast enough for me anyway.

As far as GoW goes, if it is bundled with the 1060 I'm going to buy soon I'll try it out, otherwise I'll pass.

Good post nethead. I can pretty much agree with all of that. Valve definitely needs to implement some sort of controls that keep developers honest.

Fair enough. But consider - The problem is that currently developers have no incentive to ever finish their game and include the promised features that got people to buy into it early in the first place. Look at DayZ. The developers have yet to add a ton of the features after years of Early Access. At this point, after millions of dollars in sales, why would they bother to ever finish it? What's the incentive? They've made their money. I don't think it's fair to consumers for the developers to be able to hide behind a blurb in the early access note that says "we may or may not finish the game". At the very least Valve should start enforcing a time limit for how long a game can stay in Early Access and potentially dupe more customers into paying for an incomplete game.

Agreed. Caveat Emptor doesn't really apply in my opinion. Not when the Steam refunds are so limited. Were Valve to change their refund system such that a user can get a refund at any time while a game is in early access, regardless of playtime it would give consumers far more protection in cases where developers don't deliver a working product in a reasonably timely manner. As it is right now, Early Access, while a great concept, is just too easy for developers to abuse and fail on their promises.

The Romine brothers deserve every ounce of public humiliation and commercial destruction they have received. The shit they shovel onto Steam is the worst kind of exploitative shovelware and they are too stupid to understand that trying to censor criticism will backfire 100% of the time. As an aside, I'd like to say shame on Valve for letting pathetic worthless shit like DH's "games" on Steam. DH is far from the only "developer" being allowed by Valve to do this, and it has gotten so out of control that there is probably more shovelware than actual games on Steam now. It's sad.

I'm not a big fan of Pitchford, but I am interested in Battleborn. Much more so than Overwatch because of Battleborn's coop and campaign. To me it's pretty foolish to not go F2P with the community dwindling as it is. Certainly a large price cut is in order at the very least.
