Want QoL? Don't work in games.
Unionization and government regulation will be required to fix it.

True and True. Somehow I can do easier programming in the biz world with less hours and better pay and play things other people make.

And I thought they did it out of the kindness in their own heart.
But no, it takes government laws, rules and regs to protect workers.


And there are people out there all for the worker but then are against gov't rules and regulations. Those rules and regs are the only things that can protect a worker reliably. We all should be in unions because it's protection, we all are very important to the sellable product, if we weren't we wouldn't have been hired, so the game should be a 50/50 one.

If you want a modern Wizardry game, look up Legend of Grimrock 1 & 2. They are basically as close as you'll find and both fantastic games.

Why not MMX and Bard Tale 4? They are TB where Grimrock isn't, which I feel changes the formula quite a bit. No one has still put the basic building blocks of Wiz 8 into a new game.

[partially because it devalues the product for consumers. Once it's on sale, a good chunk of consumers will just wait for the next sale, which is why brands hate their products being put on sale too quickly.

This was the leading thought from the consensus. For example they have several games not released yet on sale, some are saying why would I later buy it at a higher price? I'm not saying they are right or wrong, but there was a lot of chat about that yesterday.

was rtx a big scam
In 2 words; yes
Man we don't know that yet, like the Threadripper being killed off article here. Both are heavy speculation and to me on the RTX it is just the continuing poison of people just not being able to have patience and jump to immediate conclusions and being brain dead on how tech works. It's a start down that line, what is so hard to fathom here? All the engines and big companies are investing into it, they are seeing something, it seems to me like it is going to be a thing.

MS and Sony should just partner up and make one high-end console for all. Share the costs, reap the savings and carry on.

Some good sales on Steam this weekend too. Just bought ATOM RPG and Primordia.

Atom is a whole $1.50 off sale, lol. Primordia is a different story, extremely well rec'd, not typically my bag, may gift it.

If you have even a passing interest in factory games, along with a LOT of exploration, pick up Satisfactory. Itís indescribably cool.

As people have said about the woeful web page they have, no tags being a huge one. So looking at Satisfactory it doesn't list it as a Single Player or MP Game. I take it is coop from watching the movie, I see a First POV and what looks like coops moving about. But how can the developer not clearly in the description state this? I noticed this on nearly all the games at EGS, lack of details like that.

Also On Metro Exodus, I'm only seeing $35, not $28. They already got cold feet?

I do have a real problem with what they are doing, buying exclusives is different than what we've seen, this isn't old, this is a new development.

That said I take the free game every two weeks, haven't installed one yet, I just find it humorous I'm getting subsidized by Fortnite players buying virtual stuff, like the free $10's from Epic if one buys from them during the sale. Thanks Fortniter's!

No such thing as censorship on a closed platform.

This, as long as they aren't gov't.

ACG - "bring you reviews that aren't 10 mins long, alluding to shorter takes. Review 16 mins. Back to back days. Or does he mean 10 mins is too short, he gives us more beef? Today's world I was thinking 10 mins is too long, could be wrong on his intentions. As for the game he liked it, he mentioned Hellblade which was a boring walking simulator for me, APT: 12 hours - $45.

As far as Denuvo goes, it used to be that developers would remove it once there was a crack by pirates released to the wild

I'm pretty confident that was never some type of standard process, a couple may do that, most don't.

Yep, ACG rates it a buy. He's never been wrong in the past.
And he is neither paid nor a shill, so there's that.

I do like ACG reviews, but it's pretty funny when he repeats his creed to us on how he does reviews. "Reviews that aren't 10 minutes long", looks at the length of his review 19 mins. LOL I guess he's not lying, but I take his creedo to mean well less than 10 mins to get to all points.

I got Outer Wilds confused with Outer Worlds. I need another cup of coffee.....

Their logos are even close, did they change it along the way to live off the coattails?

Windows search sucks because they feel it is a cousin of DRM. Make things slow and hard to find. Search Everything is exactly what the O/S would have if they weren't trying to hide things from you.

You're not wrong, but on the flipside, there's not that much else being made anymore, is there? The entire gaming industry has now gone towards this model.

That's not true, what could be true is those games that haven't aren't of interest to you. I don't know what everyone considers GaaS, but DLC and MicroTrans, all three are different to me and GaaS doesn't have to be bad. I've played what I feel are a lot of big publisher games in the past two years and had fun with almost all of them and most I wouldn't consider GaaS. Anthem cut you deep.

What do you expect? It records everything you say after you say itís name. You donít think search engines record everything you search on or every page you click to? The news would be you are being recorded all the time no matter if you do a verbal search or not.

Will only announce stuff near completion. Goes on to announce nothing related to content. Yeah we are going to hang you by your every word, you earned it. Committed = what our lawyers tells us to say to cover liability, the games true end game.

I think there could be a legal case against the support of Anthem as a GaaS with a very large roadmap that doesn't look like is gonna happen. Selling as a GaaS to me means top talent/long-term support. We're giving you more a shell now... but trust us we will just keep making it better and better and here's a map to show you how and when. Then bait and switch after release.
