Apologies if you support the movement and the above disclaimer offends you in any way, but try to deal with it. Arguing with me about it is fruitless: I won’t be swayed.

Well...that sums up the whole debate quite nicely. The games media knows best, so shut up you filthy misogynist gamers!

It's nice to see this pop culture feminism blowing up in their faces. I think a lot of people are seeing this as just a way to get people to pay attention to them rather than a genuine problem.

Next up, Batman! Or possibly Jurassic World...or maybe entourage. We gotta wait to see which one is most popular. Maybe we'll just complain about all of them!

DeanRheims NFS will require an online connection, but the benefits are nice. More variety and a more rewarding experience with friends.

Uh hunh. Good luck not getting fired after this ships! I'm sure it's gonna sell tons and your job will be secure so just relax and enjoy your work!

This game will probably be "good" but those driving parts just don't feel like they are part of the batman game. The fighting looks fun, the cinematic scenes look good. It's disappointing that this game seems to be all about adding the batmobile and it doesn't appear to do that well.

News Comments > CDPR: "Too Early" to Discuss Cyberpunk 2077
20. Re: CDPR: May 27, 2015, 13:46 Tumbler
It could be that they've started over with the project. Who knows.

Considering how good the Witcher 3 is turning out to be, I would hope they're taking the same template and building Cyber 2077 to be just like the Witcher 3. If that means scrapping what they have so far then so be it.

News Comments > CDPR: "Too Early" to Discuss Cyberpunk 2077
16. Re: CDPR: May 27, 2015, 13:28 Tumbler
I'm really impressed with Witcher 3. I'm thinking about ducking out of work early today...again!, to go home and play it. It's fantastic. It reminds me of red dead redemption a lot because I'm spending a lot of time riding around on my horse and the world is so fun to explore. The side quests are really well done, I get a little annoyed with the main story quests because that get a little too wordy in their story bits. Doing side quests is fun because you can do a lot of them very quickly and there is often some very meaty content there. I'm getting spoiled burning through those and seeing so much then I come back to the main story and the game slows way down for all this talking.

The crafting system is also a lot of fun. It's just complicated enough to be interesting but getting ingredients and building things is very simple and rewarding. I love that you have to visit all sorts of different people to get all the recipes you'll need and often take them to others to let them build it.

I found a dragon too, I don't think they call it a dragon, but it was lvl 14 and was guarding a little castle. My goal is to level up to that and go get into that castle. I think there is something in there that is supposed to help me get a better set of armor.

Oh, Cyberpunk, yeah I want to see that eventually but the Witcher 3 is way more than I expected and it's got me so distracted from Cyberpunk 2077 I'm fine with them having nothing to say. Hell just make a total conversion mod for Witcher 3, this game rocks. Make more games like this.

News Comments > Mad Max Savage Road Trailer
6. Re: Mad Max Savage Road Trailer May 26, 2015, 13:59 Tumbler
Saw Mad Max last night finally, Holy shit, couldn't have asked for a better experience than what I got. I was amazed that most the stuff we'd seen in the trailers was basically the opening scenes. I figured we were seeing major parts of the movie and there wasn't going to be much to be surprised about.

Holy cow. Unreal how much they packed into that movie.

I'd love to see a Mad Max video game that lets me explore / live in that world. I was really looking forward to seeing those other towns they talk about in the beginning. I want to trade with bulletfarm, gas town and the Citadel! I want to raid convoy's that run between them and build my own city in the middle! I want to rule the Wasteland!!!

News Comments > Star Citizen Asset Leak
15. Re: Star Citizen Asset Leak May 25, 2015, 17:07 Tumbler
This leak is the most exciting news we've gotten on star Citizen in a long time. The ships look amazing. The blade medium fight and the hunter destroyer are the most impressive to me. The f8 (lightning?) is the least impressive.

Cig would be wise to share more info like this. I'm a worried that the reason they don't is because they have a long road ahead and need to keep the info going out to a minimum so they can hold out for another year or more.

News Comments > Desura Explains Missed Payments
3. Re: Desura Explains Missed Payments May 22, 2015, 10:09 Tumbler
I hope that this will help to allay some of the fear and anger surrounding this.

...nope. All you did is give excuses for why you're missing payments. It's a real bad sign to miss payments. You're CEO doesn't write the checks himself I assume?

Short of your servers being down I don't see why the flow of funds isn't almost completely automated. Relocating your offices might be the best excuse of them all but I assume your servers are not in your office and that side of things should be unaffected...

I assume things are falling apart over there. I'm guessing Devs will start pulling their games in big numbers next week as a precaution.

News Comments > Take-Two Suing BBC Over GTA Movie
12. Re: Take-Two Suing BBC Over GTA Movie May 21, 2015, 15:49 Tumbler
First I'd heard about any of this.

It appears the BBC is making a movie about Rockstar and their rise to fame and then the "fierce" opposition from parents and such regarding the violence.

The summary I read seemed to stop there which is odd because I feel like all the opposition amounted to nothing. The game is among the most successful video game franchises in history. It's crazy to suggest that the game is mired in controversy or the studio is a cause for concern.

I'm guessing they think the movie is going to try and get people upset about them again and so this is their attempt to stop it. At this point I think the public knows what htis game is, it's part of the culture (or the world) and trying to fight against that is going to look comical.

Hmm, I bought the I5-4670k last year so it looks like I'm good. Got a 970gtx last year as well.

Checking prices shows the 4590's are about $225 and the 4670 I got is $250 so I assume it's a small step up.

I'm good!

The feds would be wise to start building their own backbone infrastructure to "encourage" the corporate dead beats to do the same. Paying them to do it and then not making them do it didn't work very well.

The first thing on that list needs to be redesigning the tech... Octopus Web labyrinth.

The general idea of it makes sense, each direction is a pillar of society. (military, labor, science, etc)

I hope they can turn things around for that game. The weird little upgrade system for the units seemed fine for one Faction but having it apply to each makes them feel all too similar.

News Comments > The Witcher 3 Preloads Confirmed; Release Schedule
35. Re: The Witcher 3 Preloads Confirmed; Release Schedule May 12, 2015, 12:14 Tumbler
Is there any truth to not being able to play the game Monday because of a day one patch that won't come until Tuesday?

I believe that is what's being made available at the times listed in this news item. Console versions have to work on disc but I think the pc versions are all missing key files so I there is no way to run it.

18. Re: The Witcher 3 Preloads Confirmed; Release Schedule May 12, 2015, 11:04 Tumbler
That's a pretty effective way to reward digital purchases. Maybe retail will jump to releasing Monday. Sounds pretty ideal to come home from work Monday and be able to game all night and the next day if you wanted to do that. The whole release at midnight thing never helps me. 3 kids tend to set your sleep schedule in stone... Oh u want to stay up tonight!? Fuck u, it's 9pm,u will be asleep in 10 min. Oh u are playing a game right now? What was that!? You just fell asleep for 2 min, try and play a game this way, oops, 5 more min, where we're you again?

News Comments > Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint
41. Re: Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint May 11, 2015, 17:45 Tumbler
I picked this game up for 30 tokens on 99 gamers. Someone must have gotten a free copy with a video card and traded it I think. Hoping witcher 3 and batman show up soon!

Never did play it, I'm kind of a chicken. Alien scared the fucking hell out of me as a kid so I am brave enough to install it and that is all. It looks real good installed. Always sits at the top of my installed games because it starts with an A. I swear it's mocking me because I can't get the courage to actually start it up.

I watched someone try it with an Oculous and I have it feels like i have to play it with that. But when I saw the guy turn around and freak the fuck out I just said, NOPE.

HorrorScope wrote on May 9, 2015, 10:15:
For this gesture? There is no way a company would do that with units already sold, perhaps a wee small fee.

Developers can generate keys on steam at no cost. There is likely a contract item that says they can't sell them for profit as a way to get around the 30% fee for buying the game but they can definitely make keys without paying valve. It may involve requesting them from valve and stating their purpose. For example you may need 100 keys to distribute to media outlets, those keys seem like they should be generated at no cost. I've heard many times that devs can generate keys for users if needed. I assumed it was without cost because it comes up often with kickstarter situations. The game will go up for sale on steam then everyone who backed the game will get a code as well.

News Comments > The Witcher 3 GMG Key Dispute
33. Re: The Witcher 3 GMG Key Dispute May 7, 2015, 13:30 Tumbler
I wonder what would happen if the illegitimate keys get banned...

I would guess that the company who paid for them could request a refund and / or start a lawsuit against CDproject.

If you buy a key from CDProject and then sell that key to me that doesn't make it illegitimate. CDProject may not want to sell me a key directly but that doesn't mean they can stop you from selling your key to me if you bought one.

There is obviously not contract in place that says you can't sell your key, in fact it's quite the opposite. They know you're going to sell the key because that is why you're buying them. You're reselling them.

There is no legal recourse if you turn around and sell it to someone they don't like. They can't place restrictions on how you sell your own property. And the key, the actual number, is absolutely your property. The game isn't. But the numeric key is.

And at the end of it all there is almost no way they can come up with a safe list of keys purchased through GMG. They'll find them attached to other approved vendors and all they will know is that a consumer is trying to activate the key. It might change hands 10 times before that or only once, there is no way to tell. All they'll see is that a key purchased by someone (nvidia for example) was redeemed by a guy named charles. Charles may have gotten it off 99 gamers from someone who bought a video card.

This is just a move to get peopel to buy from GOG instead of GMG. It's a shitty thing to do considering GMG is completely legit. This is very similar to the redbox / netflix / blockbuster / walmart bullshit that happened a few years back. Redbox was offering new release movies the day of release for $1 a night. Movie studios didn't like this because they saw it as too easy to see their new movies the day of release for cheap. They wanted people to buy them online for $4-$5 or go to blockbuster and spend $4-$6. They also didn't like netflix having them on release either. So they refused to sell to netflix and redbox, and they said if you want to buy from us you have to sign a contract that says you will only buy these movies 30 days after release. (or more) So redbox decided to just send out their folks that manage the boxes to go buy the movies at release and stick them in the machines. The movie studios then got walmart to create a policy that no one person could buy more than one copy of any movie during the first week of release. (redbox locations obviously need many copies of new releases)

As far as I can tell both companies, redbox and netflix, eventually signed the contract and now offer those movies well after they ship to stores. They could go out and buy them somewhere other than the movie studios but I'm sure the movie studios would take action against the people supplying redbox and netflix.

It's bullshit. CDProject is engaging in anti competitive behavior because they want to be the only place to buy keys for the game online.

Absolutely loved these games. I would kickstart the shit out of someone going back and redoing them with better graphics and possibly voice acting... (although that might end up real real bad)

I installed STO recently but ran into a lot of trouble trying to connect my old accounts and just gave up in the end because I had to go look up old game keys and email support to have it manually fixed.

Seeing these games makes me want to go give dig that shit up and actually do it.

I hope they will have more to show soon because I want to give them money but a few things they said cause me concern and that bit at end a out, "we can build this game"... What game? I'm not at all clear what you want to build. You shove the x wing designer thing out in front and then you talk about real newtonian physics and you can spin around and shoot backwards... That isn't x wing...uhm we already gave that game coming, I'm sure you've heard of it...
