Yeah, not sure why games like this are still being made. I mean, I do respect id software for their contributions over the years, but really, who are they catering towards, 60+ year olds who can't tolerate change?


Uh....no.

I almost fell asleep watching a stream of it today.
Its just a first person platformer now (for blind people, since all possible ways are marked with different colors). Most of the time youre just looking for secrets for pointless easter eggs. The rest is so brainless and repetitive, it looks like a $0.99 DLC for the last one.
Even the "music" is extremely annoying now.


Cool story bro.

Yeah, but now with Mike Pence in charge, we're gonna kick coronavirus into Mexico, and we'll make them pay for it!


Don't be dumb. That sounds like the same kind of braindead douche-baggery from the liberal media. It's really sad so many have fallen into such evil these days.

From NPR 2 days ago....

"So far this season we've had between 30 and 40 million illnesses in the United States," Martin says. Of that number, about half were ill enough to seek medical care, and between 300,000 to 500,000 people required hospitalization.

The CDC estimates that there have been 20,000 to 40,000 deaths in the United States so far this year.

Just for comparison, that's a thousand times more deaths in the United States than have been blamed on the coronavirus so far."

At this no one bats an eye but everyone's freaking out over C19? Yeah. Sure. Ok. Rolleyes

I have a hard time believing that you are serious here, but on the off-chance that you are...

The issue is not with "how many people are currently infected". Of course that's considerably lower than seasonal colds/flus that have been around for years. The issues are how fast this spreads, and how high the mortality rate is. Normal flus have a mortality rate of around 0.1%. Covid-19 has a mortality rate somewhere in the 3-5% rate. Should we get the 30 to 40 million people infected that you quote from the seasonal illness, we would expect between 900,000 to 1,400,000 million deaths. That is a *lot* more serious than the 20-40K deaths from flus.


Heh, you're really comparing the two percentages? That makes no sense. The data set for flu vs C19 is wildly different. You'd have to normalize the data, then take percentages before you can compare. Do this and you'll find a very different outcome. Of course the percentage of C19 is going to be higher when the total number of infects is low. This is basic math.

The truth is, C19 is not that strong. It does not spread any worse than the flu or anything else. It also mainly attacks elderly with conditions. It has been shown that the more healthy and young you are, the better off you can fight it. The flu kills both old and young and the symptoms you have with it are severe. Most people with C19 have none or very little symptoms, other than the already sick. This thing only appears to be some massively bad thing that "spreads fast" because the dumpster fire liberal media are making it look worse than it is. They are constantly reporting, going on and on about even a single new infection, and trying to use it for political gain. We would have far less problems, if it were not for the horrible mainstream media. You can make anything look very good or very bad if it's presented just right.

Given Blizzard the past few years, this is going to be a complete cluster fuck. I have no doubt about that. The truth is, the old Blizzard, what made it great, no longer exists. Those employees are long gone. Now it's just a shell with Activision in charge, and that's never good.

I don't often agree with Cutter, but QFT. Fuck this system, its absurd that the US still doesn't have decent healthcare coverage for its citizens. Healthcare should be a right and not a privilege.

And who do you propose pays for this? Healthy people? GTFO. Don't even bring up insurance companies, they are 100% responsible for the high costs, not the gov.


Exactly. That socialist garbage of healthcare provided by the government and all that is pure crap. IT DOESN'T WORK. That, and all other socialist ideas have no place in a free society and history has proven this. I can't believe some people are dumb enough to go along with it at this point. Pie-in-the-sky ideas where everything is free and provided for you is a fantasy and comes from lazy people who want something for nothing. They don't want to work for what they have. (this has nothing to do with Mynx, BTW, so don't get it F'ed up). As stated, the problem is greedy insurance companies and greedy doctors.

Oh I loved reading Dear Mynx back then. I remember reading it a lot in my High School's computer lab and even got some friends to start reading it, even though they were not interested in Quake.

I miss those days of the "Planet" sites, before IGN bought them up and killed them off. Voodoo Extreme was another site I went to constantly that was also killed by IGN. Ugh.

Close, it's meant to draw from Virtua Racing.

I've been following this game for several years and even contributed to their failed kickstarter. I love Virtua Racing so something like this is within my interests for sure. I'm so glad to see it finally about to come out.

Why are they pulling their games? GeForce Now only lets you stream games you already own. The publishers were already compensated when the games were originally purchased.


Given the way the game industry is today, publishers are anything but fair and reasonable. They want to milk their customers until they're dry, and then squeeze some more. We pay full price for a game, yet it's still monetized like crazy with microtransactions and DLC of content that in the good-ol-days would have been part of the game from the beginning. Even though we may have already paid the initial price, the fact that NVIDIA is making money off their games in any way gets the publisher's greed going nuts. They feel like they deserve a cut. It's complete BS, but that's what greed does to people. Makes them go insane.

More like 0.0000001% chance now. At most. At this point, a person would have to be brain dead to still vote for one of them. Some of the most evil and biggest hypocrites these "Do Nothings" are that has ever walked this planet. Pisses me off how much time and tax dollars wasted on complete BS.

News Comments > Kingpin: Reloaded Announced

9. Re: Kingpin: Reloaded Announced Jan 18, 2020, 01:08 SirKnight
 
OMG HELL YES!!!! One of my favorite shooters here. I bought this the day it came out, I believe at CompUSA. Too bad I don't have the original box any more, but I do have the CD (not sure about the manual). I also rebought it digitally on GoG.

In the video they show what looked like a PC big box, hopefully that's the case b/c I definitely want a big box version. Plus I'll be picking it up on Switch and Xbox One (hell maybe PS4 as well).

I remember a long time ago a sequel was going to happen but it was cancelled. Too bad.

Since Kingpin used a slightly modified Quake 2 engine, it would be awesome if they integrated Quake 2 RTX features. A path traced Kingpin would make me shit my pants. lol

Wow, I bought this when it was on a $15 sale at the end of 2017, and it's still shrink wrapped. I've been wanting to check it out but since I know it's an open world game where you'll sink TONS of hours into, I've been hesitant. At the time I was still playing Zelda BoTW, which I need to get back to actually, and I had over 100 hours into that and still not beat it yet.

I wonder if the xbox is outclassing playstation this round?


This last time I went with PS4, for obvious reasons. I ended up getting an Xbox One X last year after I got a 4K TV. I like that system so much better than I ever liked PS4. Now my PS4 is a dust collector.

So for me this time, unless PS5 supports backwards compatibility from the original PS1, PS2 and maybe PS3 (of course it'll do PS4), I won't be getting one. I'm definitely getting a Series X day one though. If Sony gets all their old systems working with PS5 then I'll get one in addition to the Series X, otherwise who knows if I'll ever get a PS5. The PS exclusives I don't care about one bit. The type of games those are do not interest me at all.

Although TBH, I'm actually looking more forward to the Intellivision Amico. lol

Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra might have more RAM than your PC.

Not too many people's PCs around here, I'm guessing.


Yep, mine definitely has more at 32GB and it's been like this for many years.

The only thing at this point that will get me to buy the PS5 is backwards compatibility like this claim and done local not from cloud streaming. If this does not happen, then it'll be Xbox Series X only for me.

Ever since I got my Xbox One X about a year ago after buying my 4K TV, I started to greatly prefer the Xbox side of things (I had PS4 since launch) instead of PS4. The PS4 exclusives I don't care about at all, I like the Xbox controller way better, 4K BluRay support, most powerful and so on. I ended up loving the Xbox's backwards compatibility a lot more than I thought I would and it has become one of my most important features now. My PS4 is mostly a dust collector at this point.
