This time we really, really, really, really, really mean it!

Hey MS, remember when you took a bunch of PC games and made them exclusive to XBOX and then let PC gamers have SOME of those games YEARS later? (Halo) Or started a bunch of series on both PC and then XBOX but then fucked over PC gamers by only putting certain entries on XBOX? (Fable, Gears of War) Or "committed" to PC gaming by doing a lazy port of an XBOX interface and jamming it into Windows?

Yeah, you can go blow goats, Phil.

Up until this info leaked, Gabe's "console announcement" was assumed to be HL:Alyx for PSVR2. Now it's likely...well, both Alyx AND this handheld.

BTW, for everyone complaining that they stopped making games, may I point to Alyx and remind you that they did, in fact, make a game quite recently. It's so good that when people try my VR kit for the first time, I don't let them play Alyx first. It puts expectations in place that aren't realistic currently. It looks SO DAMN GOOD that everything else just looks lazy by comparison. Sure, it's a very linear game, but so were HL1 and 2.

Agreed. It's so good it kind of made me stop playing anything else on VR because nothing else compares, lol. I mean, Skyrim VR is great, Boneworks was good and Alyx is the pinnacle of VR gaming....and then Medal of Honor was a soul crushing disappointment. Which is kind of why I think Sniper Elite VR has gone quiet, as they realized Alyx raised the bar and they were not going to make it over.

Every other STEAM hardware release though. Steam Link was such a fail. The controller, ugh. Steam Box needed to be a an actual, made for Valve console but it was instead just mostly a marketing term. Now they want to make a Switch. Uh...I'm struggling to think of why I would want to play my PC games on a tiny screen. Yay, Among Us portable! Oh wait, that's on phones. As is COD, PUBG, Fortnite, etc.

Just got the news this game comes to PC. Watched this trailer. Almost shocked at how ugly this looks. I recommend everyone to watch the video again, fullscreen mode, and have their expectations lowered. This will maybe, probably kinda suck.

I encourage you to either A) Get your eyes checked or B) Stop watching 4K trailers on a crap monitor.

You mean Quinn is blindly radicalised just because he's posting about dying in a fictional onslaught of Muslims and prophesising the end of Western civilization? Please say it ain't so!

Hi theyarecomingforyou !,

Not directed to anyone in particular but to the recognizable type of the perennially agitated

Seems like they crave and search for things to be afraid of, or outraged over, and if there aren't, they'll make up new ones presto
The populist movement and the likes of the Republican party could not survive without feeding, nurturing and welcoming those types of people. Combined with the fear and ignorance they absorb from the bobbleheads on Fox it makes for a toxic mindset.


Yep.
World over classic populist/demagogic/fascist tool:
Blatantly fabricating enemies and demonizing outsiders.
Rounds up the gulible and hard to inform, giving them that ol' sweet righteous belonging feeling.



You do realize that is BOTH major political parties in the US, correct?

As for the Iraq War, that was justified by a little event known as 9/11
So if a Canadian terrorist committed a terrorist attack against China it would be "justified" for China to carpet bomb the United States and murder innocent civilians? You're known for spouting a lot of nonsense but you've outdone yourself today.

Yeah, what? AFGHANISTAN - that's where the attacks originated. Bush simply wanted to finish what his father started by ousting Saddam (Who was put there by the CIA in the first place.) so he lied like a mofo and screamed WMDS! and away we went.

Really, if we wanted to stop Al qaeda we should have invaded Saudi Arabia, since that's where all the funding was coming from. Talk about a terrible country.


Oh, and in case we've all forgotten, ISIS loves to steal code and make games that are all about killing Westerners and Jews.

I'd say these patent trolls have no chance, but the article mentions that Microsoft already opted to license the patent from Ironburg. It's a shame Microsoft caved, because it'll be an uphill battle for Valve now.

Of course, "Ironburg/SCUF" doesn't actually make any fucking products, but what are you going to do when they've already won one case against Microsoft?

Incidentally, they stopped selling the Steam controllers? I still use mine occasionally, best PC controller I've had.

2 seconds of Google would tell you they do, in fact, make high end controllers. https://scufgaming.com/

Sigh. Time to chalk up my hands and prepare to climb some towers.

Haha! I was too late to make this exact comment.

That said, I've gotten a lot of hours out of the Ubisoft formula games, so I'm cautiously interested.

Massive Games didn't have towers....

Dude, far Cry 3 and AC: Revelations. Massive has so done towers.

These guys are now working on an Avatar (The blue aliens, not the air benders) game and a Star Wars game. Hopefully they won't muck it up.

This is just another attempt by the corrupt left wing tech companies to stifle conservative christian conversation. What they are doing is disgusting and I'm not going to take it any more. There's nothing going on in Parler that's hate speech or anything else it's just a group of people wanting to have a Twitter like experience without having some sort of disclaimer on the bottom or worried about their accounts getting banned or anything else.

-- my former coworker here in Georgia


Sheesh, how do people NOT consider the thousands (tens of thousands?) of death threats and calls for the violent overthrow of the government, along with the murder and torture of anyone they disagree with, hate speech?

Also, so much for businesses being able to deny service at any point, for any reason. Those anti-gay bakers are going to be pissed.

I know, right? Which means Twitter and Facebook and all the other social media apps should have been shut down this summer as well.

Everyone is OK with censoring people they disagree with. Just wait until it's your opinion they disagree with and you get censored. I don't agree with either side, since they are both full of self-serving politicians just looking to get rich and powerful off the backs of the people. The logic defying twists both sides play trying to redefine reality is just mind blowing.

Heh, I wonder if they will keep the slide from the 2nd floor to the first? I got to visit for a Fortnite test about 6 years ago. Building was really cool. Some really cool memorabilia on display, big Gears statue out front.

Remember, Epic is not only video games. Yes, they make a ton from their games. They make even more from their graphics engine. PS5 was developed around Epics suggestions. The Mandalorian? That uses Unreal engine for most of the background images on their state of the art LED screen studios, as do most of Disney's upcoming TV shows, and now their new movies as well. Epic can afford to buy an unused mall at a deep discount price.

Yep, it was terrible. I refunded after 48 minutes. I've been told I needed to play for about 2 1/2 hours to get to where the game isn't a series of mini-levels chopped up with tons of cut scenes. Eff that, you don't have 2 hours to draw me into a game. If the first part isn't fun, you can't expect people to just keep dredging though hoping it gets better. And smooth turn and picking things up should have been working at release. Those are basic VR game functions. Respawn really messed this one up.

I can't even finish Exodus. I keep getting a bug halfway through Caspian where the NPC required to progress a quest just doesn't ever show up. Their support team just keep[s telling me to restart the level. Between this adn the year delay due to their Epic deal, they can GFT.

Oh. Just had a thought to add.


The streamers are paying the publishers and dev in 'exposure'. Because isn't that something some try to fob off on artists?

Totally not the same.
When people say they are going to pay an artist in exposure, they are trying to get the artists to give them something for free or at a deeply discounted price.

Streamers have already purchased the game. The publisher already has their money, and NOW they are getting free advertisement as well. That this douche thinks the STREAMER should be paying for.

I honestly think music should work this way as well. Instead of beating down any creator who dares use their music, artists should be glad for the free advertisement. Jesus, look at Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. All of the sudden they are raking in cash again from a 40 year old song because some random on a longboard used it in his video and it went viral.

I just bought the Crysis bundle on Steam because it was on sale for $15 for all the games. (Owned on disc, but easier for me on Steam.)

Crysis 1 at 3440x1440 all settings max only runs at 75-80fps on a 2070 card with an i7-8700k and 32GB of DDR4.

The newest COD runs with a higher fps on all ultra settings with them NVidia RTX settings on. EDIT: With them, lol. "With the"

Granted, the software has been optimized over the years, but Crysis is still very demanding even on modern hardware. It also looks way better than any other 13 year old FPS game.
