Unfold Games has offered to donate all its revenue from the Epic Games Store to charity if it's released on the marketplace - as long as it gets a non-exclusivity deal for Darq.

Yep

Don't keep that money - give it to your God ChrisT Roberts!"

Fixed that for you. Such a missed opportunity.

Damn! Thanks, mate!

Fyi that is the Christ in Christopher. And remember that, next time someone looks oddly at Mexicans naming kids Jesus.

But it's not pronounced Jesus but "Hey Zuez."

Kanye gets closest to the original pronunciation with yeezus.

note the 'j' in "hallelujah"

I don't think it makes sense to include Prey and DNF on that list. The released products have nothing from the original development cycles. Those games were stopped, scrapped, and restarted multiple times.

TF2 is similar but I bet it has a more coherent development lineage than Prey and DNF. I don't know much about SC2's development or the remaining titles with 9+ years.

They're licensing the right to run the software. As is the case with all software.

Then don't call it a "sale". It's not a sale.

They're selling the license.

"This is not the case with digital downloads which are subject to the “communication to the public right”, meaning that the purchaser does not have a right to sell them on, without the copyright owner’s permission.”"

If you don't have the right to resell, you never owned it. If you never owned it, they're not selling games like they pretend to, they're RENTING them.

Which means that all this time Valve ( and others ) were guilty of FALSE REPRESENTATION. They're shooting themselves in the foot.

"This French ruling flies in the face of established EU law which recognises the need to protect digital downloads from the ease of reproduction allowed by the Internet."

Resell of owned goods has nothing to do with this, resell /= reproduction ( aka copy ).

They're licensing the right to run the software. As is the case with all software.

This looks like a list put together by a console kid who's only been gaming a few years.

It only looks back a few years...

You know you're old when you're referring to nearly 20 years as "a few".

List makes sense to me with the exception of Bloodborne being included in the top 10.

I feel like a lot of these games are stand-ins for their derivatives and sequels too... kind of like when Return of the King won all of those Oscars and you knew it was really for the whole trilogy.

Glad to see BF1942 and COD4:MW representing their respective series.

I gave up this game long ago because of the toxic players... and it is more of a PvP game than a PvE. I am glad I only bought the Starter edition for under $20Cdn

Yep a 5v5 MP FPS would be considered "PvP" I suppose.

You can fully customize the behavior of the scroll wheel itself though. It's pretty much useless outside of work applications these days.

The scroll wheel is?
You don't play PC games or browse the web anymore?

I installed it because I think San Andreas was the only one I actually liked.

How was it? Different. I knew you'd like it.

They need to bring the psychotic Latina back!

How insensitive! Don't you know it's LATINX now? Latinks? Not Latina!

Nah that's mostly just for when you don't know the gender or are speaking of all Latinx.

I've never had to think about cloud saves before, they're either happening or they're not.

Considering that they already plan to have multiplayer, a third person view will be fairly easy. The character models are already there, and I assume animations for all moves will be done for the multiplayer functionality, so I’d bet official 3rd person will come with the multiplayer patch.

I think the stink over this was that you would never see your own character during cut-scenes. That was a pretty big part of The Witcher games, so it feels like a brash move that may not serve the narrative well. Time will tell.

Based on the post about virtual dongs from the other day I assumed there would be 3rd person in cutscenes.
But maybe like the character just looks down or something

Just read the article that was linked on the previous Blue's post... wow, what a man-child.

During one dinner in Japan, according to two people who were there, Rodriguez said he would pay for an employee’s airplane tickets to another country if they drank a disgusting concoction that he’d created at the table, made up of raw eggs, beer, soy sauce, and other assorted food items that Rodriguez had found.

I remember doing stuff like this at 13.

Those are good for people that need some air of authority when it comes to English...
