I've worked more than my share of 16-hour days in the manufacturing industry, where any day could be "crunch period" depending on what goes wrong. In business they'll say things like " we don't expect anyone to work ridiculously long hours" but the truth is that if you don't voluntarily work those ridiculously long hours you're viewed as weak or disloyal, not only by management but often by your peers as well. Without company policy explicitly stating that no one can work in excess of a certain number of hours a day or in a week harmful shift lengths will always be a problem, both for the people who work it and for those who choose not to. That's just been my experience anyway.

Impressive video, no doubt. I just at this point wonder if all these impressive videos are intended to mask the fact that the huge number of game elements, environments, cool scenarios, and mechanics, while really cool unto themselves, are miles away from beimg joined together to be coming a cohesive, complete product. Which could take forever.

We played "battle royale ", 25 years ago, except we called it last man standing.

Yep. I guess it's like survival horror - Resident Evil exploded the genre even though it didn't invent it.

I love Mark Hamill but it's not really cool to ask the "now or awesome" question when we were promised something awesome 4 years ago and it isn't even close to done.

So, when they say three part, do they really mean this is one mission out of the three thats being released? The DLC Season pass is three new Coop maps. Just trying to get some clarification on this. I own the game and beat it. took around 10 hours and was a blast.

Actually getting ready to go to the Airport and catch a plan to Japan soon, so I dont have time to play this now to see for my self.


Fuck you - I'd give anything to go to Japan!

Seriously though hope you have a blast.

Lack of options will eventually force gamers to buy from only a couple of online stores. Like steam, origin and uplay. Gas companies do this also. Close down the mom and pop's

Hasn't it already been this for many many years now? There wasn't a mom and pop online store either.

I'm okay with the online equivalent of Walmart (Steam), Target (Origin), Sears (Uplay) and Kmart (Microsoft's online abomination) being the defacto choices for digital gaming. Only trouble is Microsoft makes cynical cash-grab shit and can't even come close to making a decent platform, Ubisoft has a hard-on for making only the same nebulous content-laden open world "live services", and Uplay at best is merely an annoyance, and EA is basically Satan in corporate form. Valve doesn't make anything but money anymore, which would be fine by me if they would use even a tiny percentage of it to get decent customer service and some kind of basic curation.

Oh hell. I already have hundreds of hours in XCOM 2 and now I'm going to have to go back to it. I am in romantic love with this game. My favorite game of the last 5 years hands down, and easily in my personal top 5 of all time.

News Comments > Microsoft Buying Obsidian?
18. Re: Microsoft Buying Obsidian? Oct 10, 2018, 08:50 Prez
 
Fuck. First the promising Ninja Theory (makers of the great Senua's Sacrifice) and now this. If true, this is disheartening. I personally like and admire Obsidian, and there's no way this is a good deal for gamers who share my sentiment. While not the inevitable death sentence it would be if EA was acquiring them, in the end they may as well be dead because Microsoft will almost certainly grossly misuse them like they have been doing with the once-great Rare making garbage XBOX/Windows Store exclusives nobody wants. Microsoft's inept and flaccid gaming division can't die soon enough.

What - no 'Top Gun' references? No one wondering if the shirtless beach volleyball game is included or will be dlc? No one asking if the voiceovers will include iconic lines like 'Talk to me Goose' or 'You could be my wingman anytime '???? Shame.

On a serious note, I was wondering - what about the F-14 specifically required 2 pilots while most other fighters only needed one?

Nice. Will be picking this up and playing this weekend. On a related note, did the legal dust-up over the rights to the IP between the original creators and Stardock ever get settled?

I'm assuming this is a free update as there is no price listing anywhere. As it should be, seeing as how they forgot to put a game in their game at release...

I don't doubt that there are some amazingly skilled females who could easily hold their own in e-sports competition, but given the general maturity level of the current crop of the all male competitors, I shudder to think of the shitshow that would inevitably ensue. I follow the Overwatch league closely, and even without women there is no shortage of instances of them getting themselves into trouble.

As someone who used to love and is still fascinated by conspiracy theories (yet believes exactly none of them) I find reading up on #QAnon to be delicious! That shit is awesome! There's just no way the mysterious 'Q' doesn't look like the smoking man from the X-Files.

I'm one of those weird people who doesn't mind direct ports from mobile. There are some good mobile games where I've said to myself "this is a good game but I hate trying to control it with a touch screen". The problem comes in when no effort is made to adapt the controls to a mouse and keyboard when it's ported to PC. That's just lazy.

I'm one of those weird people who played and loved the first Halo on PC way back when. I even downloaded a cracked version of Halo 2 so I could play it on Windows ME because I was too poor to upgrade my OS such was my love for it at the time. I'm long since over it but I really loved those games.

I'm also long since over wondering if Microsoft will ever actually make good on their never-ending promises to recommit to PC gaming. As far as I'm concerned they are merely an OS maker.


They’re committed to PC gaming more than before. That’s not saying much, but every first party Xbox title comes out same day on PC. You’re wondering if they’ll make good, and they have been, for like two years now.

If their XBOX exclusive/Win10 release list wasn't so dismally pathetic in those 2 years, that might be something. Alas, the don't have anything approaching that of Sony or Nintendo.
