Oh damn. I'd check the place every month or so and binge through it, sad to see it go.

Really surprised funding would be an issue; even a full dedi server with CF coverage wouldn't go for over 70 USD a month for sites that aren't hosting massive forums or lots of media, so at worst it could've been left to coast.

After the 2013 remake... why?

Are there really people out there that want to go so retro as to have "minecraft graphics" work seamlessly on a modern machine / operating system / wide-screen monitor?
Is this all 3DRealms can do? rehash old shit on tweaked old tech engines? (Even new IP like Graven)

I'll settle for the 2013 remake (which I have from a GOG sale)... thanks.

Obviously yes, there are enough people that like these sort of things to allow them to keep working on them. More power to them, just because it's a niche doesn't mean it shouldn't exist.

But I'm biased, I thought Strafe was easily among the best FPS games released in the past decade...

Can we get a remastering of Soldier of Fortune? Loved shooting limbs off in that one.

I support this - along with RTX support like Quake2 RTX.

Recently replayed this - needed the standard work-arounds that Quake2/3 etc engined games need to work properly but it was fine. No limbs were left attached or recognizable.

I feel like I'm the only person that completed both games (there is no third!) by only killing the level-trigger and boss enemies and just shooting the guns off every other one.

Yes, for most things, and many have been using it as a convenient thing to blame for delays they'd have anyway.

That said, for anything on console, it'll certainly lead to delays as companies aren't going to let all employees take home dev/test kits (and nevermind base level or outsourced QA being able to do so).

God Sweeney, you're such a hypocrite.

Exactly, Sweeney pissing and moaning about Apple and Goggle, and here he is doing the same exact shit to everyone else.
I guess its OK in his fucked up mind to pull this crap on everyone else but he cries a river when hes held accountable for doing it.

Hello pot, meet kettle!

Maybe Steam should throw their two cents into this to and Sue EPIC for trying to monopolize the market with the backstabbing bullshit they are doing. I mean in all honestly I think Steam might have a case in this.

Ah yes, paying studios millions to make a game a temporary exclusive on their storefront that runs on an open platform is exactly the same as charging a flat 30% to every studio that wants to sell on the one storefront allowed on a closed platform.

Exactly the same.

Christ.

Gave it a go, but the combat has no feel to consider it a "Souls" game. Thematically cool, but unplayable due to poor c ombat.
Unless it's broken to the core, that's hopefully something they could get feedback on and fix before starting to charge people. I'll give it a go later myself, it does look nice and I need my fix until Elden Ring shows up...

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...)
