News Comments > EA's "Gigantic Action" Game Plans

Haha I love how the AC series is just boiled down to "action genre". Are none of the other EA title in the "action genre"?

I don't know if Obsidian has some bad management or they've just been really unlucky in getting fucked over by publishers again and again.

I don't know why you presented this as an either/or. They go hand in hand. Management takes on projects that couldn't possibly be completed by their team on time and within budget; makes promises to publishers that can't be kept; and doesn't have the negotiation to push for those delays that all of their games desperately need.

I feel for them because clearly they have the passion, and technically they are able to finish good games. It's just that whole budgeting side (money + time) that seems to elude them.

They can shove their clouds up their dumb asses. I will never put any of my personal data on a server that I can not control at all times. It's bad enough to have local data on a PC that is connected to the Internet 24/7 and not knowing which services are collecting data and spying on me in the background but outright putting data on a foreign remote machine? F.u.c.k o.f.f.

Err, so don't then. No one is forcing you. Though I bet you are lying.

Do you run your own email server? Those things are a pain to maintain. I'm guessing you go "to the cloud" for that. Or maybe you don't have email?

Moreover the article is more about how cloud computing has become a part of businesses, with many of the things that would have been in-house applications (like a customer database) have become tools that they use on the web (like salesforce). Though I'm guessing you just saw the word "cloud" and didn't even read it. It's a dumb buzzword, I'll admit.

WTF why is the 32-bit version having any kind of increase, and on steam no less. It shouldn't even exist.

28% penetration into the gaming community in 4 months is quite good. Microsoft has been very aggressive with upgrades, and it's paying off for them. Sucks if you are one of the many who want to - and should be able to - keep control of your system.

Why the decline? Is it the game itself? Did enough other mmos finally gain traction to drag the userbase away? I haven't tried a new mmo in a while - does everyone in chat still go in and complain about how much worse than WoW it is? Is it cell phones?

Probably cell phones. Stupid cell phones ruining everything.

Wait. I don't care about WoW. Fine cell phones, you can have this one. But I'm watching you.

How does Telltale expect to keep making stupid episodic games like this? They feel like empty, uninspired cash grabs.

Erm. Nice logic there. Cash grab -> cash -> can make more gaem

I can't stand horror games where your only option is run and hide. Which really amounts to learn the monster's patterns and respond to them. Games like SOMA and Alien would be way better if you could interact with the environment and craft items to fight back with. Trying to avoid the monsters is intense enough but just being a victim the entire time is frustrating and monotonous. It's a shame because the environments in those games are otherwise fantastic.

Of course, this style of horror coming into popularity was a response against the fact that many horror series had become increasingly action focused barely distinguishable from a typical shooter. I agree the pendulum has swung too far.

This looks pretty fun, but I'll wait for the 5$.

Sounds more like an inside job from one of the SJWs.

I'm with you on questioning the credibility of the threats, but there is nothing here that supports any notion that it was an 'inside job.' The FBI isn't going to spend time tracking down anonymous internet threats to a gaming convention panel, and it's far easier and cheaper for SXSW to just cancel the panel than have to deal with this.

Oh sure they will, and do. It's part of their mandate - and anything that nets them terrorist related headlines only nets them more power and money. Hell, there was a bomb threat at one of the university's here last week and they shut the school down. Turns out it was a 16 year old punk - and he was found by the FBI helping the local fuzz. I'm pretty sure that all such threats, in fact, have to be investigated now.

School VS conference; single credible threat VS a plethora of loose threats.

If I finish Rogue before November, the delay may actually mean I can finish my november novel without any distractions for a change.

Spielberg, Lucas - not wrong, just narrow. "Video Games" encompasses such a wide range of experience as to be almost useless to make a general statement about them. Lucas probably has not played a Telltale for example, and if he had he might not put it in the same category of "games" that he is talking about. Spielberg's baby example I assume was in a scenario where the player could keep trying again to catch the baby, but what about if that scenario was halfway through the game and if you don't catch the baby you have to live with the repercussions? I know that I felt really bad when I accidentally killed the NPC at firelink shrine in Dark Souls about 20 hours in, even though I probably didn't need him for anything, because the game saved that he was gone, and I didn't have him greeting me when I entered anymore.

Non-game guys shouldn't speak on the difference between movies and games without doing their research as they don't know what is out there. Just as I would be a poor one to discuss the merits of, say, Flash Fiction, being that I mostly read novels. At the same time, there ARE certainly differences between movies and games, and there have been a lot of missteps along the way where games have learned the wrong lessons from cinema.

Still, why are we talking about a 2-year old talk

The issue here was not the quality of Community (which I think most would agree has generally degraded each season), but with Yahoo's lameo attempt to compete with Netflix or Amazon. ONE well known property (and one that a lot of people hate) against those juggernauts? I'm a pretty big fan of community... but I have other stuff I watch too. And I didn't miss it enough to give yahoo a try.

It's a PS3 port. At least it exists... It's pretty rare for these games to come to pc! As long as it's not buggy and at least runs as well as it does on the consoles I'm happy.

And 24 fps lock for cutscenes... I mean. They are anime movies. That's the framerate that anime runs at. I don't see the issue???

This attests to the hotness of the property at the moment more than anything else. And at least in production design they made good on capitalizing the property. Wowzers.

Ubisoft is giving people a full refund and/or free game for the (imo) minor issue of the CE not having a physical disc. If anyone is pathetic in this reality, it's the customer. Not Ubisoft. I really don't get the hatred. They compensate greatly for people who are obviously stuck in the past. Face it, folks: MTV is no longer a music channel, Ozzie became an actor, and game discs gave way to digital downloads.

Instead of reminding those people of the harsh reality of change, they offer free games instead! They act like too sweet parents who give their whining child an icecream just so they would STFU.



Considering the low cost of physical media, the other items in the box, and the price customers are paying for said box, not including the actual game so people don't have to waste bandwidth to download is cheap and greedy as fuck.

Actually, not a huge minecraft or minecraft lp fan myself; but it makes a lot more sense to me than other let's plays. What happens in the game actually represents the casters personality a lot more than most games.

Anyway. This is basically how fame works. People like people.

And control? We've never been able to control anything. How are the latest technology advancements any different? Control is always an illusion.

By not playing on console, I am self-limiting my pool of games. It sucks sometimes when a game I'd REALLY like to play (like RDR) doesn't make it to the market, and I will complain about it with the rest of pc gamers. But really, as long as the market is healthy, not getting all of the games is a good thing. If I had a console, that would mean beyond things I'd REALLY like to play my time would be even more divided amongst a ton of games that I'm only marginally interested in.
