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.

Half-Life would make a pretty good action adventure movie, but Portal would only work as an action comedy in my opinion.

I don't give a crap about all the drama surrounding Star Citizen - I'm into gaming, not soap operas. That said, having read this article and the one Blue posted last week about the troubled development of SC thus far, I started thinking to myself about all the games with this kind of troubled development cycle that have come out since I've been a gamer. Personally I can't think of one that has been released and even came close to delivering on the original promise of the game. The closest one I can think of is Homefront, but that game was merely average and could have been so much better.

Not one. Not a single one. Ever.

Not entirely true.

But Homefront was terrible.

Not being a console gamer I wasn't aware of RDR's troubled development but it's kind of encouraging that it HAS happened.

Was AIX the singleplayer/coop mod for BF2? If so, I enjoyed the hell out of that. I would love another one of those for a later BF game, but it looks like that will never happen. The theory about the technical hurdles of programming bot AI to navigate deformable terrain being too high makes sense, but I still wish it to happen. Yeah I'm a dreamer.

Personally I found the article to be excellent. All the more surprising since it has Kotaku's name attached to it!

It does present a worrying picture of the project, but I enjoyed it. Not being in game development myself I like being able to read about what goes on at development studios.

I just stopped in to see what the MRAs were raving about this week. Come on guys, this is -way- too tame...I made popcorn and everything!

While I find her videos laughable, I think the basis of her opinion about women in games has some merit. It's just a shame she presented her arguments so poorly with ridiculous examples and assertions. She also completely failed to offer any real solutions (other than the obvious "design women in games to be more to my liking" theme of her movement, which isn't really helpful...)

I was always far more aggravated at the gaming media for championing her without pointing out the many fallacies in her arguments than I ever was at Sarkeesian herself.

Also, what are "MRA's"?

I had just been thinking to myself recently that we haven't heard anything from Anita Sarkeesian lately. So I guess this is my fault. Sorry everyone.

To me he seems he was painting with a very broad brush. I can't bring myself to feel offended though - this is Pachter we're talking about. I don't care about which platform is better; I just know which I prefer to game on. To each his (or her) own.

The changes seem like the best possible solution to the problem of review spamming on Steam. I'm a little concerned that the option to ignore non-steam store reviews is on by default since the average user will most likely not even notice that that is the case. On the flip side this does serve to protect more casual consumers from being duped by the huge number of biased, fake, and paid-for reviews so I understand why they chose to do it that way.

I watched a "Let's Play" of the first 90 minutes of "The Bunker" and I was amazed at how engrossing it was. This is especially amazing considering I don't like FMV games and I generally don't like point and click adventure games.
