That all sounds very nice, except the entire thing is really about this one little point:
Combatting intellectual property violations.
Everything else is dressing, like "Think of the children!".

JC and coop is the weirdest thing; there've been very popular mods for 2 and 3 to enable multiplayer, and the developer even supported them, so clearly there's interest. And it's the perfect sort of game for coop: open world utter nonsense. But still nope =/

You're comparing a 20k USD car that can get people killed if it malfunctions with a <50 USD videogame people can just return if they don't like it (after having read the reviews and still buying it). Jesus Christ, at least use a better example like "Dominos once delivered me a cold pizza with some hair on it" or something.

Unless they're also going to port RDR1, is there any point in getting RDR2?

It's a prequel, set in 1899 (1 was in 1911), and focuses on a character not present in 1, with some of 1s characters on the side. You don't need to know anything of RDR1 for this, though it'll give players of the first one some lore and backstory that was really vague back then.

Really wish they'd've called RDR2 something different, Red Dead Rejects, Red Dead Relics, Red Dead Reckoning,... Oh well, marketing and all that.

Game takes an age to leave the tutorial section (not just the area), and a fair number of mechanics are still being dripfed for hours afterward. Once you start exploring on your own, even before the "real" game starts, it really shines; being able to just wander about and hunt things or mess with NPCs is great.

Anyone that was into RDR will love it. Anyone expecting GTA in the west will be sorely disappointed; it's far slower and grounded.

Also you can pet dogs.


As for this post, gotta remember that that most game engines these days are made to be platform agnostic. It's perfectly possible R* has plans for a PC game that uses the same engine and mobile companion app. Or it could just be meant for connecting to test machines, because the game was tested (and obviously developed) on PC. I'd love a PC version, just wouldn't hold my breath for it.

GTA 5 PC came out 2 months after the console versions
More like a year and a half; GTAV came out Sept. 2013 on consoles, April 2015 for PC.

Great game, and saw a lot of progress since "launch".

In the binary between a studio getting funding by an unpopular company and a studio shutting down due to lack of funding, real gamers always chose the latter.

Oh no, I have been insulted by some random angry person on the internet.

You have fun being angry at things you have no control over, I'll carry on having fun playing games for what is basically free.

I'll buy it for the xbone, and if it comes out on PC in the future, I'll most likely buy it again on that.

Rockstar games have consistently given me magnitudes more playtime and fun for the dollar than most any other, and the cost of one of these games is about an hour at work, two dinners at a fancy place, or four 2h movies at the local cinema (popcorn and soda not included).

News Comments > Strange Brigade DLC and Free Maps

It's easy to argue, because that's not how it works in almost all cases.

There was most likely a feature and content lock over a month ago, with some people moving to polish and bug fix, and others working on DLC and extra content that likely started development before the lock, but was planned way ahead of time to be post-release content.

It's how a fair chunk of money is made, and how you avoid ramping down staff after they're done with their work; keep content producers working after the game is "done" and release content for players to buy while the game is still installed an in their "Recently Played" list.

A fairly significant amount of people care about Halo, and specifically about playing Halo on PC. It's one of those things that exist in great numbers but gets little attention, like people that play farming simulators or NBA games.

Katz, the murderer, was from Maryland. Which I guess is where he got the gun (and laser pointer) from. The implication there being that he passed some of the strictest checks in the country required to buy a firearm.

(something you could take as "the strictest checks are useless so why bother restricting our freedoms!" or "the strictest checks aren't strict enough, we need more gun control!", it's anyone's pick)

Berated "conservatives" could do what their precious ethos demands, start a new social media platform and compete on the free and open market without all the evil regulations.

In most games, if you're in a team of some kind with a player that does very well, you benefit from them making the game easier; be it better loot and XP, or in these silly new times of ranks and competition is every FPS, match-making ranking.

Basically, if you're on the same team as the guy that's winning the match via cheating, your ranking stats are most likely counting the win as you being "good", even if you did nothing.

No mention in the article about her turning an innocent and polite comment into a sexist attack, about the commenter being a public figure in the community promoting the game, or about her publicly celebrating the death of a games journalist that wasn't part of the ingroup.

Figures.

If you're going to be on social media under your real name and highlighting your job title and employer, don't act like a shitty person. It's as idiotic as a store employee wearing the uniform walking out of the store after work and launching into a tirade against customers right in front of the boss.
