The PS5 is even worse, shipping with 825GB pre-allocation.

Where did they announce the 825 was pre-allocated?

yawn @ more multiplayer garbage

I do have to wonder why you even bother to devote so much time, with a general disgust of just about everything that is posted. Is there anything in the gaming industry in 2019 that you are fond of, or is everything about pining over days of old?

I would actually play that game, if it wasnt such a grind/p2w.

Have you done any research? How are considering it P2W? I bought the game in December 2015 and never paid a dime. The grind? If you want new operators and dont want to pay for them, the grind is real.

I've unlocked all but 1 operator by grinding. Honestly, there are operators that I've never played that I unlocked. People having new operators do not have any advantage over the people who have the stock OPs. I personally really like this model. The game gets supported by skins and season passes, but the maps and operators are obtainable for playing a game that I really enjoy. All new maps are playable by everyone.

Why do they even bother with these bullshit awards ceremonies? Everyone know W3 was the game of the year.

These aren't popularity contests, they're members of the game development industry assessing the works of their peers. You'll see Witcher 3 did win a few awards this year, just not the top spot.

It's entirely about who's buying what. That's all it ever is. If you don't understand that, you're retarded or a shill.

If you're suggesting that its quantity sold (and im pretty sure you are not), than FO4 very likely beat Witcher 3. According to VGChartz.com (and I know, they don't have 100% track record) but even if we round up/down a million units, Witcher is around 5 mil (im sure excluding Steam sales) and FO4 is at @ 10 mil. So even if we pad W3 with 2+ mil, it still isnt close.

I loved W3, and still plan to return to it when I have time. Just started playing F04 and im pleased with the presentation. Atmosphere, and even the graphics are suitable. I have very little to comment on the story as Im only a few hours in.

I respect the fact that DICE is about developers awarding developers. I feel peers often offer the most objective reviews and would carry much more weight with me than any internet game site.

I've been reading Blue's for a long time now, and its kinda sad how most of the comments are from the same people that generally hate 90% of the news that gets posted here.

I don't play a lot of fighters but there seems to be some legitimacy behind the release of SF5, and we'll quickly see how many people 'did' ask for the game by voting with their wallets.

I just don't get the negativity. There is a demographic of people that like games that you may not like. I will never buy a sports game (football, hockey, soccer etc..), but I know a lot of people will 'only' buy sports games. That's the great part of life. If everything was the same, and all sites were like the comment section
@ Blues, I guess I'd take up brewing full time as a hobby. At least brewers are pretty fun to hang out with, even if they don't like the same beer I do

Cheers!

Or "maybe" people like a bit of variety in their games. I always liked the vehicle maps, but I never complained about Op Metro when it came across the rotation.

Then I read these online forums and find out that I'm stupid for thinking they're OK. Either that or apparently play it 24x7 to pad my stats, which I know isn't true. I guess I'm a stupid moron, bummer.

I hate to say it, but I'm still playing Diablo 3 occasionally, no RMAH/GAH use. Act 3 Inferno so far on my barb with a dps/throw build, but need to farm more to really get through that act. Multiplayer with people I've known for 15+ years is still fun, farming solo is a bit boring. But, I can only imagine using the AHs would be even worse, zero feeling of achievement there.

Aside from the whole announcement to an announcement bullshit, hopefully these changes end up being positive. So far the fun aspects of Diablo 3 keep getting nerfed, it seems.

Although just in case, I'll try to actively finish Inferno on my barb now, in case something gets nerfed to pieces soon.


How can this be? Haven't you read on this forum that this game sucks?

Screen looks too bright.. apparently its w/o particle mapping or whatever. There is decent detail in there, but just seems a little cartoony to me. Im sure it will be fixed. It also mentions that the camera is adjustable so you can zoom out further etc.

Not that its rock solid, but perhaps a decent guess at the console version of sales

It's sad. I told myself I wont click on the Comments link anymore on this site, but I wanted to see the patch notes. It's almost like clicking on a link in an email that you know that you should just type in the URL yourself.

I started gaming on the PC in the early 80's and still keep up OK with the new releases on both console and PC. Its just sad to be able to predict how many people will post on any D3 news article who bash the living crap out of this game.

I bought D3 on release, Im playing 5-10 hours a week with friends and having a good time along the way. 1/2 way through nightmare right now.

Anyway, it just bums me out that the PC scene is so angry all the time. Its like seeing a spokesman for a certain group on TV representing your group. I just keep saying to myself "we're not all that bad, some people are content".

What about what blizzard has done with WC3 and pretty much everything since then (non wow)? They provide their own matchmaking and they have done pretty well as far as I know. You can play ranked vs non-ranked as well as use mods. Wonder if IW has thought this far...

Did they fix the camera for the whole NW2 engine, or do you have to get the exp pack to get the new camera?

What is a bit deceiving about the whole Activision Blizzard is that Blizzard really had no control over it. If you go all the way back to pre-WOW days, there was always a big concern of Vivendi selling the games division (including Blizzard) which adds lots of uncertainty.

Now, Vivendi agreed to combine forces. Blizzard really has no control over it, and what you hear from blizzard could be considered marketing spin. This is what happens when youre dependant on your parent company to support the company during all the R&D (development time).

Now with wow, it really comes down to how much money Blizzard has agreed to pay Vivendi on all the transactions. That 75+ million they make a month most likely dosnt go sit in Blizzards pocket. Im sure Vivendi takes their percentage.

Anyway, it should be interesting to see what happens, but I kind of feel its going to be impossible for Blizzard to remain what it was. Whether its good or bad, yet to be scene.

At the time (a month or so back) I picked up an OEM(no box) copy off Ebay for 15 bux shipped. Pretty good, well worth the price. There is a learning curve that will get most people. People dropping in will play it run and gun which wont net the best end user experience.

Not as much complexity and freedom as the Tribes series, but still pretty deep and relatively polished.

Care to elaborate on what it breaks? I know MS sent out a list of software titles that have issues with it, but most of the vendors have patches or new versions that fix whatever breaks. But Im curious from a real-world point of view, im sure things will surface once it gets in users hands.

Agreed! Havent heard of Syndicate in years. That was one of the most difficult games of its time. Once they released the expansion maps/missions, I dont think I passed a single one. But very cool and satisfying game.

Please, keep in mind I have no real concrete info how many were bogus vs valid CD Keys. I don't know, but just glancing at the gamespy stats, things have dramatically reduced in size.
