Bad workplace culture... to create entertainment.

It's an oxymoron, and there are no good excuses for it.

New World opening sales on Steam. Every wanna bee streamer jumps with the herd onto any new game bandwagon. Give it a month. From what I have seen so far, combat is just plain stupidly bad. Quests are sophomoric, kill X turkeys, kill XX turkeys, kill XXX turkeys etc.

Guaranteed to be F2P within a year.

Erm, does it need to be f2p when it is a one time cost like Guild Wars 2? It's basically premium f2p already.

Why did this thread get political? People passed around a nude photo of a coworker who later killed herself. No consequence. Workers had their work rejected unless they gave it to a man to pitch. No consequences. Women were not given the normal raises and promotions their coworker partners were. This isn't about thin-skinned political correctness, it's about people being awful and those in charge, who are responsible for their company culture, not giving a damn until it is too late.

It doesn't even matter that the people who were harmed were women, except that it is so prevalent for women or minorities to be the targets of this abuse.

It's not because men are more likely to be pigs. It's because men in powerful positions are less likely to call out their friends. It's because this behavior has been entrenched for too long and become a part of the industry, rewarded and enabled by money. It's going to take a lot more than some very flimsy apologies to rectify.

I wouldn't think anyone would be looking to buy one of these and hope it can compete with their desktop for performance - but you know, people be people. This is going to be my new emulator of choice, while also letting me still progress a bit in some of my beefier games in situations where I can't use the desktop.

This looks good I probably will get one. Will I finally finish my older backlog titles like Deus Ex Human Revolution if I can play them in bed will my partner watches a sitcom? Chances certainly go up, and I'd prefer to deal with less than perfect graphics hardware vs less than perfect streaming.

Idiotic. Hire less of a diva and replace the likeness for the pc version. If you are going to use actor likenesses like tv/film, then fans will have to live with the inevitable recasts that also happen in tv/film.

Well damn, my habit of buying games, getting halfway through, letting them sit for a few years and then coming back to actually finish them is not great.

This is a really cool technology, I think the danger is in too many games that have no business being a massive open world being pushed in that direction.

I wish they would fix steam proper. The new library interface was a nice try but it's worse in some ways than the old one (which had a lot of room to grow). Big picture mode really looks like it hasn't been touched in 5 years.

It's bonkers to me. I'm one of the biggest ubisoft fanboys around, but it feels like if they just cut every one of their AAA games in half content wise they would be better for it and also cost less to produce. And barely anyone would notice.

Valve doesn't need to pay for exclusives because they don't need to entice devs to release a game on their store. Devs will do it because you would be crazy not to target their market.

Exclusivity, along with it's guaranteed income, and being promoted to a market where you are liable to be a bigger dog, is an incentive for a store that has a much lower market share.

Anyway, steam also doesn't need to pay for exclusives because they have their own tools that give them exclusives anyway. You people always seem to conveniently forget that steamworks exists. Yes, it is a more meaningful value-add than just paying someone, but often effectively means the game is exclusive to steam as well. It started with skyrim (if you bought it in a store it would install steam off of the dvd) and continues to this day.

All these companies, valve included, want the same thing. Customers to get stuck in their ecosystem and pay them for life.

Sometimes projects under microsoft can continue to thrive, but it's true they don't have a great track record with social tools. It's mindblowing to me that they didn't have a skype offering that could compete with zoom in 2020.

Hopefully discord doesn't go there to die, in the past couple years it's become my defacto online community.

They should pay, and we need regulation on all of these internet companies who think it's OK to run a "service" without also providing "customer service".

Voting with our wallets isn't working.

Did y'all see that thing where the Terraria developer pulled off of google because they lost their google account? It's not a great idea to buy all your games from the same DRM, because if they decide to take your games away there isn't a lot of recourse. Less chance of that than there is of getting hit by a dmca request on a youtube that tanks your gmail, but I've heard some stories.
Not going to argue exclusives are pro-consumer, but they have had the effect of diversifying my buying habits a little bit.

Of course, Google killed off its own games studio. I mean - almost 1 year after being founded, they have not released a single game?! In Google time, this was about 5 real-time years! Google is impatient, you know, and after 5 years no game? See?

Which begs the question why they got into the gaming market at all, expecting results after 1 year with a brand new studio. They just have no idea what they are doing and it shows.

60$ is 20$ per game so the individuals are already at a bit of a discount.

I really liked the first game, but the second one and the third disappointed me story wise. I don't think they will solve that here, but it might be nice to revisit me1 with some cleaned up mechanics. Not sure I'd pay for the privilege though, especially with so many games I haven't played yet.

I predict nonetheless this sells like hotcakes.

I mean it does kind of seem like the bad actors in these particular instances were the third party resellers.

This seems like the usual case of long attempts to punish corporations - yes the corporation is shady, but by the time the court cases cleared they are in trouble for the smallest of the shady things they did. Like the microsoft/internet explorer bundling which is laughable today, when things like the apple app store (or all of that annoying bundled android stuff) exists. Like, that concept of "you get our software built in" became much more annoying but the worse applications of it are never punished.
