If I was stuck on an island for eternity, I would need a couple things:

1. My wife and son
2. Endless supply of Jameson Whiskey and Miller High Life
3. Mame Arcade machine
4. Sun tan lotion
5. Skyrim
6. Wither Series (games and books)
7. Our Ms. PacMan cocktail table

Life would be awesome.

I don't think it's physical only -- I'm inclined to doubt that the World of Warcraft expansion could punch as high as it does solely on physical sales -- but I'm pretty sure they don't have Steam's data.

It's retail only, they say so on their site.

Doesn't seem like this list is very relevant then. Besides casual gamers, who buys PC games in a retail store anymore?

Think "What games do they sell at Tesco?"

It's probably just FIFA, Sims, CoD, and Football Manager.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp Accuses Georgia Democrats of Hacking.

That's rich. The guy is literally trying to steal the election by disenfranchising voters.

Two stupid things mandated for the USPS not mandated for any other government department:

1. They don't get federal money, but are mandated to serve non-profitable routes.

2. They have to cover all pension costs from operating expenses.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Oh, c'mon. Give them more credit than that. I mean, they named the game "Fallout 76" so the servers are obviously going to be up for 76 weeks.

I really donít get it. Blizzard tells people not to get all hyped up, then they do, and then itís nothing to get excited about. Whoís at fault there?

The lesson Bizzard should take away from that is: donít hint at anything. Announce it outright.
It's a one word difference to set expectations well before Blizzcon:

"We have an exciting new game to announce!"

vs.

"We have an exciting new mobile game to announce!"

Add that one word, and no controversy. Also, no ticket sales.

Right or wrong, he's not really in a position to grill another game studio for questionable decisions. Dude touched Firefall and sent everyone associated with it in to oblivion.

This would mean more if it came from someone like Rob Pardo or the former D2 developers and designers such as David Brevik, Erich Schaefer and Max Schaefer.

Came hear to say something similar. You said it better. +1

Yeah... *sigh* I would have bet large amounts of money that was how I was taught, but it would appear not to be so...

Memory can be a terrible thing. Many years ago, I claimed that French and Spanish were "Love Languages." What I meant was Romance languages.

Witcher 3 is the best game ever made. Change my mind.

Nope, I have to agree. The only thing that doesn't age so well in it is the animation, which is a little stiff compared to current titles. Other than that, it is absolutely fantastic.

I guess I'm an old fart or on my way to being one at least, but my favorite games are the ones I can finish in about 10 hours. Anything more than that starts feeling too much like work.

My most recent slog was through Titan's Quest (the original first part) and gods that was terrible. By hour 40 I was desperate to reach the end and was even more disappointed when my only reward was a dialog box saying more adventures awaited me.

There's really something to be said for short, simple, and sweet.

Don't play the new Dragon Quest. I understand it takes 150 hours + to get through the story.

*lifts coffee mug to smirking face*

Nostalgia will challenge you, but yeah, Witcher 3 is going to be a strong contender for a long time.

Still, who the hell doesn't own Witcher 3 by now? They have practically given it away on Steam and Gog multiple times.

I still don't own it. I told myself I couldn't buy it until I finished Skyrim, which I haven't.

I'm happy with my Rift although there isn't much good content coming out. So many people try, even recently Bioshock ex-devs with Torn... just these small VR controller centric short games that don't really do anything for me. SkyrimVR is worth the cough-out for VR to me but I wish more people would take that cue, that you don't have to make a "made for VR" game for it to be good. I'm 100% positive that something like Kingdom Come: Deliverance would be one of the best VR games if they just tinkered around with it a little bit and put out a patch or VR re-release like Bethesda did, but then again KCD would probably have to reprogram it's entire combat system, lol - I'm just wishing they would. 3D Bluray films are pretty cool in VR too - but where are the 1 hour 30 minutes VR films that don't suck? There aren't any, period. Wasted potential.

So how is Skyrim VR?

From the article, they had conversations about fan reaction, so they knew this was a possibility, yet failed to set expectations or mitigate.

Pretty sure Cutter got it right. Undo the contraction:

"If it is not made with Gruyere, it ain't FOS."

Surprised you didn't complain about "ain't"
Uh, I don't think so...

"I think the hamburger stands alone in it is own category,..."

but as I mentioned, he made a different error in his correction...

That's a different usage: its (third person singular possessive pronoun) vs. it's (contraction of "it is"). Cutter was using the latter, and using it correctly.

As for its' (ending with a single quote like "Moses' dog"), I'm pretty sure that's not a thing.

... this makes me even less want to go back into the gaming business. Salaries suck compared to outside of gaming development, the hours suck, the studios suck, and overall, there's a large vocal mass of customers that suck. Ya'all suck the life out of the devs, and then trash talk them for making things you don't personally care about. Hint: They didn't do it just for you, there's 6 billion other people on the planet, and a huge number of them who don't play PC games.

No, we have a simple ask: serve us pure coke. When you cut it with Borax, we hate that.

Why are you assuming this is a zero sum game? Because Blizzard is making Diablo Immortal does not mean we will never see Diablo 4 (undoubtedly it's in development).

It's an expectations problem.

If you tell your GF, "I have the biggest announcement to make!" she's going to expect you to propose. When you tell her that actually the company is transferring you to Omaha, NE, she's gonna shit a brick, and rightfully so.
