If he had listed Assassin's Creed as the origin for a lot of that stuff, he'd have a point. But the one franchise listed by name, because he's doing press FOR that franchise, is Far Cry.

The only FC franchise before the first AssCreed was the original FC (still a great game) and it most certainly did NOT set the standards for today's tower/unlock/uncover/maplitteredwithicons style "Ubi-Open-World" games.

It's amazing how high the AssCreed franchise rose and how far it's fallen in the span of a decade that the CEO of Ubi is unwilling to list it as the main source of this genre of open-world exploration games...

Also... so? It's part of the industry.

And there are plenty of other examples.

I use it to test compatibility for brand new pages/sites. I use it on my xbox... because have no choice and sometimes I'm on my couch and my PC and phone and laptop are all the way across the room. And, y'know, I'm lazy.

And plenty of tech-ignorant people who simply use what's available. Think IE6.

Meanwhile 20 minutes ago at the gas station I was next to a dude blasting hip hop music in which every third word was n*****. Ah, hypocrisy.

This. This latest n-word hysteria is fueled by fervent egos boosting themselves as morally superior. It's counter productive and divisive. The real dangerous racism is what has been institutionalized and I don't hear any of them calling for an end to that (ie. the drug war).

Not this. People enjoy mocking their friends. People get angry when strangers mock their friends.

Back when I was a young adult and was hanging out w/ my friend waiting on my mom to show up because we were taking her out to dinner (cuz, duh, my mom is awesome), my friend started complaining that my mom was running late. The fourth time he made a complaint (she was REALLY late) I told him to stfu. He mentioned that *I* complained about my mom all the time. I told him duh... she's *MY* mom, a-hole...

It's really, really not difficult to figure out. Tribalism is a natural human status. That's literally all it is.

You morons don't understand the difference between caling yourself and your friends a bad word and using that same bad word about people you don't know or entire groups of people?

F*ck you guys are stupid. There's truly no fixing stupid. You MAY figure it out some day because, someday, you may gain common sense. But I'm not going to be part of the process of bringing you up to the status of common.

F*ck you guys are stupid.

What's more likely to get a click? A seen ad that is viewed for a period of time or a seen ad that is viewed for a longer period of time? Non-seen ads are obviously irrelevant.

"Ishutin was beaten badly in the first match, forfeited a second match, and refused to play a third"

I can't help but think that was intentionally inflammatory. If you study chess, virtually all losses are "bad" and "resign" is a very common ending for a game. My guess, from not reading at all, is that they agreed to "best of 3", the AI actually won the first game, they played part of Game 2 until the human acknowledged that the obvious was going to happen, and everyone agreed that Game 3 was unnecessary.

How does this not get sued into eternity by Games Workshop the instant this was thought of I am sure their lawyers got ready.

LOL!

Because Games Workshop understands
1)The fact that you can't copyright game mechanics
2)That GW sure as F*CK didn't invent miniature wargaming as a concept.

It's because they have at least a vague understanding of the law, unlike some people in this thread.

Perfectly valid comparison. Not a single difference between the two. And, since something doesn't always work, there's no reason it couldn't work some of the time.

Well, on the bottom of the page I'm looking at we've got a white deputy who shot a person of color. A manslaughter charge of a white man who shot a 13 year old white kid. A white teacher who ran off with his white 15 year old student. A policeman who killed a person of color in a chokehold. A white police officer who shot a 15 year old person of color. Manslaughter charges in a Penn State fraternity death (looks like all white people involved). Teens rescuing a girl from a crash that killed her pregnant mother(ethnicities unmentioned). And yes, two stories involving criminal killings by men of color. Given this, I'd say that men are the problem. Or police are the problem. Or really, people who are given a random collection of stories and let their confirmation biases creep in are the problem.

You're wasting your breath. Cutter is a famouly terrible human being, all he wants is an outlet for his blatant racism. Not worth correcting by using facts-n-stuff.

Might actually jump into this now... I picked it up when it first released, but it was too sparse with content to really get into. As is usual with FDEV, give them a year or so and it will fill out.

I got a really enjoyable 60-or-so hours out of it, and then I hit the "oh... this is it? Everything from now on is going to be different versions of this one thing?" wall. I hate that that wall exists, but that's reality for ya.

He misspoke, he meant "auto-aim", as claims reddit and an updated statement.

Linkage? I'm not going to go through the effort of digging through reddit to look for an idiot correcting himself for misspeaking because he somehow got "auto-aim" and "recoil" confused.

Alamar wrote on Jun 22, 2017, 13:35:
This is a crazy thought, I know... But I'm gonna see how the game feels before I bitch about a lacking 'feature'...

I obviously am not speaking of everyone with a blanket statement, but... I think a lot of the bitching is about:
1)The industry-wide practice of removing features from a PC version of a game in order to increase sales of the console version of the game.
2)The confusingness of what he's saying. It sounds like he's talking about rumble (what people usually mean when they say force-feedback). Recoil does not "[feel] really good" when you're using a controller. You don't feel it except through rumble. And guess what... people can use controllers on the PC. Why not make it an option.
3)*IF* he's talking about recoil... that still makes no sense because recoil affects gameplay, implying that he might be talking about auto-aim as a response to the recoil.
4)The idiocy of his excuse, if he *IS* meaning what he actually said. It's reminiscent of when Blizzard completely removed anti-aliasing from Starcraft 2 because it affected low-end PCs. Their BS excuse was:

"After evaluating our options, our engineering team opted not to provide AA support for StarCraft II within the Catalyst Control Center, even though the competition has included AA support in their driver at launch.

We are committed to making AA perform at an acceptable level before we release it to our customers. We will continue to work with Blizzard on this matter and hope to offer our customers an acceptable AA solution at a later date."

That's utter BS. Let the PC gamers decide if they can accept the impact of AA or not. Don't remove it for EVERYONE.

This definitely isn't real gameplay. The game will play somewhat like this, but this is basically just a huge cutscene. With that said, if this IS representative of the final gameplay, this is terrible. There's no gameplay... It's just an interactive movie with constant scripted cutscenes. There's also zero player choice, no conversation trees... Nah. What happened to you Bioware?

So, just fro ma 6 min video you already gathers all that information? Yea, OK!!!

Once you've been around the block a few dozen times, you'll notice some obvious patterns. Don't worry, one day you'll get some experience.

Wow sounds like the dude who did Banished should be suing these guys. Shame, I was hoping this was going to be good.

Because Banished had walls and keeps and all that kind of stuff too, or because there can't be ANY similarities in games in the same genre? Once one game is made, you can't make anything similar ever again, right?

Oh, Cutter... /sigh...

Also, to everyone else... of course it looks similar to Banished. It looks even more similar to another game: Life Is Feudal...

Cutter just enjoys getting off complaining about things. And apparently he's never met a Baby Boomer if he thinks self-purpose has never been about a job. It's often one of the very, very first things they used to list when asked something akin to "well, tell me about yourself"
