News Comments > Zenimax and Oculus Back in Court

I don't understand. They haven't even gone to court on appeal for the original judgement yet so how the hell can they be asking for an injunction already? I understand Zenimax's strategy here but I can't see FB budging on this, or even losing the appeal. So this is likely all sound and fury signifying nothing excepted wasted legal fees for Zenimax in the long run.
Shock and awe. Fire everything and hope that either something hits, or the risk of it hitting drives FB to the table.

IMO, it's hard to even take this seriously. 20% royalty? No single company on any tech product in the world is getting a 20% royalty rate. It's absurd to the point of being insulting. That would be $120/Rift.

I'm not so sure it'll be quite that long, IIRC Retro Studios has been working on something we don't know about since they finished their last Donkey Kong. Regardless, I'm hoping they release the Prime Trilogy again (would be the third time, lol) to tide us over until then!
The developer for Prime 4 isn't Retro. Whatever Retro is working on, it's something else entirely.

This is actually the short trailer. The full trailer is much longer, at about a minute-thirty.

2. Re: Johnny Gat Joining Agents of Mayhem Jun 9, 2017, 04:02 ViRGE
 
They're certainly hitting the nostalgia kind of hard, which I'm not sure is a good thing. Still, I have a hard time complaining about Johnny Gat in just about anything; he's SR's most popular character for a reason.

But I'm still not pre-ordering the game.

How long does a mission take in this game? The new campaign is 6 missions. At $40, they'd better be crazy long.
Huh? The campaign is part of the 2.3 patch; it's free.

I had completely forgotten about this game, to the point that I was shocked that it was still in development. Epic announced it 6 years ago; no wonder.

Edit: Oh phooey, I see it's F2P...

I really like PCF. But Bulletstorm and GoW:J have not been stellar works for them. So whatever comes of their collaboration with Sqenix needs to get them back on the right track.

Expand your fighter's journey by purchasing the Tekken 7 Season Pass separately and gain access to stunning additional content

Or wait about a year for it to be patched and rereleased with all the content for half the price.
Good answer!

If this game is any good, then the trailer is not doing it justice. Which is a shame because Artemis is a blast, and this is essentially official Artemis.

The use of VR wands just looks like an impediment. The VR part itself seems interesting, but the game just screams for a keyboard (or a gamepad).

Is anyone looking foward to this? Maybe I'm just not the target audience.
I am. Volition has not let me down yet. And I have a soft spot these days for games that aren't too serious.

What's the tradeoff for client-server, exactly? That it works great and everyone has a smooth match?

Oh wait, cost-benefit analysis. So you ARE trying to save money.

The whole thing is bullshit PR, anyone who knows how computers work know there is no reason not to give players control of servers. Quake and unreal had dedicated servers BUILT into the fucking game. But once game companies realized the average gamer is a fucking moron we got this shit of company controlled servers because the average gamer is grade A fucking tech illiterate.

Quake and Unreal had NO persistent data. Any game with persistent characters CAN'T let people run their own servers. The very first thing that would happen is there'd be "get all legendary gear in 3 seconds!" servers.
Eh, I don't know. You could very easily edit your inventory in Borderlands 2. In a purely PvE game, the only person you can cheat is yourself. With Destiny 2 however, the extra wrinkle is that it has PvP as well...

Penny Arcade Expo launches global expansion.
Eh, I don't know. PAX as a show is at its limits - Gabe and Tycho certainly aren't looking to travel to yet more conventions. But this seems like a dilution of the brand. Like a Porsche-branded cell phone.

Looks like the franchise is $40 US, so guess they are saying $4. Wonder if it will be pulled on GOG too. There doesn't seem to be any info there atm.
Yes. Remedy and their publisher will no longer have the rights to sell new copies of the game at all in the US come the 15th. It will have to be removed from GoG just like anywhere else.

No, really, this is impressive. I will definitely go back to X-Wing with this mod. Great work, guys! And now... TIE Fighter, please, after you have finished this mod. PLEASE!
It makes sense that they would start with X-Wing. But it was also the weakest game of the series in every way (especially the difficulty curve). So I agree, nail X-Wing and then bring on the Tie Fighter.

I'm actually a bit surprised the recommended specs are only a GTX 970. That's the equivalent of a $200 video card these days. It's surprisingly affordable.

Also, don't forget this thing came out in March... NOBODY releases a new console outside of the holiday season anymore. GameCube, Xbox, PS3, Wii, 360, PS4, Wii-U, Xbone, PS4 Pro, and probably Scorpio will all have released in November because that's when everyone starts spending the most money.

It's pretty bonkers for Nintendo to put up competitive launch sales at a time of year when they don't have that inherent advantage. That means people are specifically looking to buy the Switch, not just whatever game console they find on the shelf when they're out Christmas shopping. Who knows how much bigger that number would be if they were actually keeping up with demand...

For comparison, PS4 and Xbone sold 4.2 million and 3 million respectively between their launch in mid-November and the end of December 2013.
Also keep in mind that console launches are almost universally sell-out events. So the number of systems sold is the number of systems produced. The fact that Nintendo moved so many in March is indeed impressive, but it's hard to compare to other launches.
