Why did they abandon the Brothers in Arms IP? Those games were so much fun.
Because WW2 was done to death.

If a self driving car kills a ped then company that built it is at fought and will be sued...
Eh. If we make it to truly autonomous cars, then carrying insurance will become mandatory. So you'll sue the owner, as they hold the car's insurance policy.

Think of it like suing a kid's parents for the actions of said kid.

Seeing how they're giving full refunds, I doubt anyone's getting paid? Btw, it IS a classy move they're giving people their money back.
Agreed. Even with my general misgivings about the ongoing about of Early Access by developers, this one is doing the right thing. And when so many others cannot, that's noteworthy.

Being that it's Arc System Works (The guys behind the beautiful spritework in the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue fighting games) I'm really disappointed they went with the classic 8 bit look to be honest. I would have loved a Double Dragon with their modern style 2D art.
Agreed. Double Dragon NES's artwork was not a defining element of the game, unlike Mega Man or River City Ransom. So using it for a new game doesn't help the game at all..

FWIW I liked Descent and what was the other one like this? Foresaken that was huge back in the early days of GPU's? Crazy fps's.

Both of the updates talked about in here look pretty good to.
The future is Forsaken.

Well it's a game that takes place in mining tunnels. So yeah, I'd hope there's some boring going on.

Considering PDX is the airport code for Portland, Oregon, and that there's already a PDX LAN event, this event seems poorly named.

Given the game came out years ago, this seems oddly timed. But I appreciate the gesture.

As much fun as it is to build a city, we all know it's much more fun to wreck it.

Wonder what this uses for wireless communications. HDMI 1.4 + USB 3.0 is a lot of bandwidth
Likely WiGig or another 60GHz tech. Technically it's line of sight, but a human should be squishy enough that it would work.

Anyone tried this out yet, though?

Ashes in the beta was... underwhelming. But there was an inkling of promise.
It's definitely a step up. Whether it's enough to scratch that itch for everyone remains to be seen.

A fantastic game, and a lot more fun than base FC3. In fact I'm a bit disappointed they didn't do something similarly streamlined as a FC4 shoot-off.

I was surprised that this game was free. It's not that old.
It was a budget game to begin with, so it didn't have as far to drop.

The 3DS obviously has a limited shelf life with the Switch soon to be here. But $99 is still a good deal for it; it has a sizable library of good games, not to mention cheap DS games if there's anything there that still strikes your fancy.

LOL MS

http://tinyurl.com/zwpaunh
To be fair, as the article notes that isn't MS's fault. MS would rather have them playing with XB1 users. That's Activision not putting two brain cells together.

That just seemed to me to be author speculation. No one knows the real reason, as the author himself says at the beginning of the article.
Follow the link to the Windows Central story in the article.

http://www.windowscentral.com/call-duty-coming-windows-store-not-without-some-drawbacks

On why it can't play with Steam users: "A source familiar to the matter recently informed us that the decision to segregate Windows 10 Store and Win32 PC platform players is entirely on Activision. There is nothing about the UWP toolset that prevents cross-play functionality, as seen with CD Projekt RED's upcoming GWENT card game."

On why it can't play with XB1 users: Microsoft said "We support cross-play between devices and platforms for partners who want to enable it."

Everyone is pointing their finger at Activision. They selected the multiplayer service and who it could interact with.

a state-installed Landlord living in a totalitarian State who must spy on tenants, eavesdrop on them and place wiretaps and cameras to build profiles and report on anyone capable of plotting subversion against the State. You MUST! But WILL you?
Yes.

So as someone who has never played a Forza game before, which series is the fun, arcadey one? Forza or Horizon?
