5v5 just feels ridiculous, and I'm not enthused at all about their "classes" approach.

Honestly this looks like a Star Wars reskin of EVE: Valkyrie.

It appears Twitter has no intention of backing down in its dispute with the troll.
Should just ban his account; the "oh, world leaders and highly important public figures are exempt because public interest" nonsense Twitter uses as an excuse not to was invented just to avoid having to actually moderate Trump specifically like they would any other user.

Well that's awful generous of them.

Is Epic throwing some sort of cash at RockStar for this or is RockStar also in bed providing this for free?

Rockstar makes mad cash out of GTA Online, so the more people that have a chance of stumbling into the online the better. They'd make GTAV "free to play" if not for the fear it'd devalue the GTA brand name.

No developer will give its last game, still selling famously and for the foreseeable future, free. Dumbest bussiness decision.

Rest assured, Rockstar *is* getting something from Epic.

Be it money for each GTA5 downloaded, fixed global amount, or variations, or the use of the new Unreal 5 engine for free for a time.
Or a stellar cheap deal for publishing their next game, etc.

If Rockstar wanted the game to get to the most people free, getting nothing for it, they would have picked Steam, obviously.


Their last game was Red Dead 2. What they make from retail sales is negligible compared to what they make with "GaaS"; the upfront cost is the biggest thing impeding user acquisition. Making it free for a limited time will make them far more money in the long run than just continuing normal sales for the same period even if they were paying Epic $2 per user that downloads the game.

As for why Epic and not Steam, shrug. Probably too many people that bought it on Steam that would be pissed at it suddenly being made free, plus it's easier for people to believe Epic dropped a cold billion or something for the privilege of hosting a 3rd party F2P MMO launcher. I doubt Epic paid all that much for this in actual cash.

?

GTFO is that L4D in space game right? Is that still in early access?

Nothing like L4D except escaping. Go watch some videos by the Let's Play people. It's not for the twitchy.

I've heard it described as "L4D but every enemy is the Witch"... Sounds a bit stressful.

You know, when two different companies tease and hype up a "Gameplay" trailer, I expect to see some actual gameplay, not just in-engine cinematics.

I hope all those involved in this nonsense stub their toe and step back onto a lego.

Severance was great, I still remember the Wow Factor of chopping off a mook's arm, watching it bounce off a wall and down a staircase, and blood smears trickling down "realistically". Was really Dark Souls 10 years before Dark Souls (or Demon Souls...)

The game's fortunately fairly moddable, with explicit modding support from the devs. I found a few mods to increase loadout flexibility, weapon behaviors, and "shrink" most mechs did a lot to improve the game for me.

I've seen some recent mods available that improve AI behavior and enemy spawning, but haven't tried those or played recently.

As it is (with the mods I used) I found it fun enough, but nothing to do really after finishing the campaign as the "open world" isn't involved enough. A proper career mode will probably bring me back. Plus more mods I guess.

If it's a "cinematic" type singleplayer game, sure, music is almost always part of the set pieces.

Outside of the last two Dooms, anything without a strong story or pacing structure leads me to do the same, hit up YT and listen to some podcast or LP.

I can't even imagine playing a Ubi-style open world / "timewaster" game with the in-game music...

I'm hoping for either another 80s (or earlier) era, or way futuristic (5th Element, even).

As much as I enjoyed GTA V, I'm not sure another GTA game in "the modern era" would stand out enough from it in a thematic / art style sense for me to care, at least unless it has some really fucking wild gameplay additions (every building fully explorable, deep AI, ultra-realistic damage models, etc,).

More likely they can't have their QA and loca teams test without coming into the office to use testkits, and they don't trust them to take those kits home.

Needs to be cheaper than AMD. Sane people aren't gonna pay 50% extra for a 5% speed boost in niche scenarios.
