Yes! I hope this will happen. I'd love to see Carmack back at id actually. Oculus is dead to me at this point.

Meanwhile, Apple continues to abuse it's monopoly position.

Just hours after the reveal of Appleā€™s new services bundles, the tech giant has already taken criticism for evidently favoring its own apps over those with which it directly competes in its App Store.
Spotify, which has been feuding with the tech giant for years now over its hefty App Store fees, quickly seized on the opportunity to raise Apple antitrust concerns.


Yeah Apple is definitely not the good guys here. While Epic intentionally violated the rules it has known about since the beginning of iPhones and deserve to be taken down because of it, they are both guilty of BS business practices. F 'em both.

I kind of get the sense that MS has little faith left in 343 for Halo and want the creators and masters of the game to come back and fix it.

Graphically, this looks like they made this during the 360/PS3 era, then forgot about it, and after remembering decided to move to to current systems.

It looks like there's no Steam release either. EGS and UPlay. Dumb.

I liked the 2016 DOOM quite a bit, finished it and did most of the achievements/challenges. However DOOM Eternal, I think I have like 2-3 hours in it, I'm not liking the microscopic ammo amounts and forced weapon swapping/melee kill stuff as much. Initially it seemed like a cool challenge, now it just feels annoying. I may go back to it later, trying to finish up Death Stranding right now, only I've gotten sidetracked building every possible road in the United States.

Yeah I feel the same way. Being forced to change weapons due to no ammo really killed it for me. I want to use the right weapon for the job if possible, but with Eternal that just doesn't happen. Then there's the excessive platforming which just annoyed me so bad.

I will definitely NOT be pre-ordering id's next game like I did for the past two Dooms.

I haven't even tried DOOM 2016. Only classic and 3.

Doom 2016 is quite good. Worth playing for sure. Eternal though was a bit of a disappointment in certain ways that killed it for me. But definitely try 2016.

So I have a 300 Mb connection, although I think it's supposed to be 400 now, but since late last year I get half to 1/3 of that. I think I need someone to come out and look at it. There might be an issue with my modem again. Anyway, I usually download from Steam at 30 to 40 MB/sec. With MFSim through their launcher, I was getting about 2 MB/sec. So it took me, according to Steam, 15 hours to download. Also during the download the launcher was using 50% CPU and 50% GPU (I7-6700K / RTX 2080 Ti). Kind of ridiculous.

BTW, I hear some are having issues with XBox One controllers that are bluetooth. I use the old one that required the dongle that's not bluetooth and it works perfectly. Normally I use a stick but I wanted to see what a controller is like and it worked well, other than being insanely sensitive by default. So if you want to use a XBone controller, try getting the old one with the dongle.

Not all that surprised, I figured this was going to happen much sooner actually. But still BS though.

Since I backed Oculus when they were on Kickstarter I got my CV1 (which works quite well with HL: Alyx BTW) for free, but I did pay for the DK1 (part of the kickstarter) and DK2. I've been thinking of going with an Index for a while now and it looks like I definitely will now. I used to have a FB account back when the site was new (around 2004 or 2005) and before it became ultra popular, but once it did I deactivated my account b/c it was getting real lame at that point. I said I will never go back and I'm sticking to it.

This crap is why I stopped installing Geforce Experience, when they started forcing you to create an account to use the product you bought.

I haven't bought a VR device yet, but looks like I'll be heading for something other than Oculus.

You don't have to create an account with GFE. You can log in using several other accounts like your google account which is what I do.

Doom 2016 played great.
Wish there was a demo for Eternal so I could see if I like their changes to combat. The platforming stuff wouldn't bother me.

I can't stand the platforming. There's so much more of it this time around. In 2016 it was minimal and didn't bother me much there, but with Eternal it's too much. Platforming in a FPS is just not fun to me at all.

As for the gameplay, it's pretty much the same except for severe lack of ammo forcing you to switch weapons constantly just for the sake of it and needing to use the chainsaw like every 10 seconds it seems. I found that to be annoying as hell. So what happened to me a lot is I'd need to use a certain weapon that would be the most effective in a certain situation but I couldn't b/c it was out of ammo due to me being forced to switch to something else from running out of other things so fast. Such a bad design. It doesn't keep you from finishing the game, but it's still odd and frustrating.

The game looks very good and the new items and enemies added are pretty cool as well as all the throwbacks and Easter eggs. But the ammo issue and platforming really killed it for me making it a pretty big disappointment. I played to about half way through the 4th level and stopped and haven't played it since it came out in March. I should not have bought the deluxe edition, but I did. They really do need a demo. Next time I'll be waiting a bit instead of jumping on it day one.

A tropical setting sounds cool. I just hope it's not more of New Dawn with the upgrading and enemy levels. It didn't feel balanced at all and that whole thing just annoyed me. Even the lowest level enemies were massive bullet sponges and upgrading the base was just bleh. I found Far Cry 5 proper to be a million times more enjoyable. I really liked that one and the setting.

I had always hoped they would go back to an African setting like in Far Cry 2, but this time have more going on in the world. It was too empty, the checkpoint system was frustrating and barely any good NPCs. A re-do of Far Cry 2 would be cool. I could have sworn back then they said they would do more with the African setting.

I liked Far Cry 5's setting a lot. The weapon's were kind of odd at times with the damage. But over all I liked that one and it's one of my favs.

I didn't like New Dawn much. The leveling up things I found to be more annoying than anything and the enemies were too hard to take down, even the lowest level ones. I really hope the new Far Cry is nothing like New Dawn.
