What a mess. The interview reminded me why I ignored "indie" "games."

Interest in "indie" "games" before this debacle: 10/100
Interest now: 1E-77/100

Well this is really.. not surprising news

They should have made Fallout 4...

I'm not so sure ZeniMax actually has any control over that. Fallout games, and non-MMO Elder Scrolls for that matter, were developed by other studios?

Can Star Citizen make $60 million and announce their next stretch goal of producing schematics for working, life-size 3D-printed starships so we can whine about something else? Gawd!

Wow, 123 posts and going in one day! Did anyone register today just to post in this thread?

And I guess it'll be a while before next/current/what-came-after-PS3/360-generation titles become the norm. The rising development costs they mention probably mean the publishers aren't going to want the risk of an X-years payback period, where X is however long it takes people to actually start BUYING next/current/fuckit-generation platforms.

The reality is that Far Cry 3 was pretty demanding. It was one of the few titles to push my GTX680 SLI setup. It couldn't have been pushed much further given the PC hardware at the time.

This is true. I found FC3 to be graphically rich when I first played it. I didn't even notice the discrepancies between the trailers and the finished product until someone did that side-by-side comparison.

The only thing that bugged me about FC3's graphics was the pop-up, which was especially noticeable when using the hang glider. On the ground, where it wasn't as bad, I could lose myself in the environment.

If they get rid of the graphical pop-up for FC4, I think it'll be golden.

I was about to say fears about the trailers might be less founded this time around, given that FC3 had to run on last-gen hardware. But I just realized FC4 is coming out for last-gen platforms too. =/

I thought the reboot was solid, but they haven't even released any gameplay footage of the sequel so it's hard for me to get interested about it at this point. When I saw this announcement I was kind of surprised, but also kind of "meh."

I would be very surprised if the title stays exclusive. Pretty much the whole series has been multiplatform for the past seventeen years.

I'm glad that Crytek is apparently pulling through, but "gaming as a service" are not the words I was eager to hear from Yerli.

Reinsert the Master of Unlocking and it's all cool.

I'm also going to jump on the echo-train bandwagon and wonder why they haven't bothered with a RE2 remake yet. Still, I'm happy they're doing this, and even happier it's coming out on PC too.

I like that they had to send out an email beforehand. "Groping other people without their consent is not okay." Well gee, color me informed!

I'm getting the impression the creep/nerd ratio is higher than average. Pathetic.

It excludes several prominent historical events and systems, thinks AAA games are all there are (giving a token 2 minutes to indies) and it all but completely ignores the role computer gaming played in the industry's growth.

Ouch, that's a pretty serious omission. That article is pretty condescending to gaming in general, but if the movie sucks...

According to Yerli, management didn't actually quit. They just haven't been able to get to work because someone got on Pirate Bay and torrented their cars.

It really, really is. You may be able to build a respectable unit for not-a-million-pounds, but then you have the monitor, the keyboard and whatever else. Yes, you have to buy a TV to play console games on, but if you don’t already own one you’re probably either over 90 years old or you’re some kind of book-reading Luddite (and that’s the worst kind of Luddite).

I'm neither 90 nor do I consider myself a Luddite. Should I take the average? A 45 year-old that just reads books???

Casting agent: "I see here you played in the Thief movie. What role did you have?"

Aspiring actor: "I was the guard who kept walking the same circle and kept looking at the same relic in the glass case every 30 seconds."

I'd rather play that guard that the spin me right round baby guy. Pretty sure I'd have to hurl after doing that.

I admit I got a little excited when I saw their Deck 16 mockup (anyone else recognize that the moment they saw it?), but why does it look like the game is running at 15 fps?

Wow, that kinda sucks. Hopefully Crytek can release a non-streamed video, because this one really makes it seem like the platform is a little...stressed.
