They should have spent more time on server infrastructure and less on virtual dicks.

It's idiotic they don't use a scale of 10. That's still the best way to rate something. There are a lot of games I might rate a 5 or 6 but if my options are up or down than it goes down. And most people aren't going to plough through reviews to see that and just skip the game entirely.

Wow, they paused the console versions and are releasing the PC version first? Has that ever even happened before??

BattleEye can be circumvented, although it's supposedly one of the better anti-cheat packages out there.

I like South Park and I love RPGs. But somehow have zero interest in this. Strange.

Speaking of missing the point completely... Because Valve wants to sell games doesn't mean it's beneficial to have as many positive reviews as possible.
You aren't old enough to know that those of us who watched PC gaming grow up, gabe is an enemy not a friend. Hes' a total dick that pushed the move behind the removal of dedicated servers. He hugely started the trend of confiscating game ownership and encouraging back end locked down games. Remember steam was shoved into half-life and counterstrike as drm which no one wanted.
Steam is still drm and gabe is still an asshole, more and more games will be increasingly impossible to preserve because game companies are producing games in underhanded ways that prevent gamer control of said game.

"gearbox has writers?"
are you fucking kidding me?
this is either a pithy troll attempt, or you legitimately don't know what you're talking about. I'm guessing the latter.
Battleborn is so far the funniest game I've played since Portal 2. Totally unexpected. It's not all AAA-grade comedy, but a big chunk of it is, and the shit that characters say in MP just makes me start crying it's so good. That's probably the most noticeable thing coming from BattleBorn to Overwatch... Overwatch is fucking dry and boring and tries to take itself seriously... I'd much rather hear my character taunt the enemy with "Public school student!" instead of "The reckoning is here". BARF.
Although speaking of funny games, the mini game where you catapult portal-style personality cores in valve's "The Lab" demo for the vive is also really funny, with a cameo from Justin Roiland no less!
I just hope that the writer in this story will have the freedom to keep up this irreverant tone with the new job on offer..
There's no accounting for taste. There are people out there that actually like the Star Wars prequels and Community's 4th season.
I'm with you man. I love Battleborn's humor and the character designs are better than Overwatch IMO. Tracer's accent is beyond irritating. Blizzard just nailed it with the more mainstream appeal.

I loved painkiller. Especially the Black edition, damn. But I haaaate Bulletstorm. It's a terrible game in every way for me. So I don't know what to think about that announcement...

Cliffski doesn't actually explain why the new refund system kills flash sales and daily deals. He just says that it does. I'm not sure where he's making the correlation. People are less likely to refund a game (or any other product) if it's cheaper.
He also says that the flash sales and daily deals weren't designed to create a false sense of urgency in order increase sales, which is patently incorrect. The whole point of having a time-limited discount is to create a false sense of urgency. The shorter the time-limit, the greater the urgency. It's the reason why Black Friday exists.

This isn't to knock other OSes at all--just to comment on the fact that it is also difficult for me to understand why game companies even bother to pay for OS X/Linux ports of their games, or why OS X/Linux "gamers" (I feel those are oxymorons) are willing to wait months and years on second-rate game ports that often never come at all.

A friend has been trying to get me to play it for years. But I never wanted to buy it as I wasn't a big fan of the first one.
Must resist...especially now that Diablo 3 Season 4 has started.
