Did they renew the license on the Lego games? I remember I got one free awhile back before it was pulled from Steam.
I guess? There're two of them listed there, and I don't recall there being a third made.

I mean maybe Cutter has a point here - their "wokeness" and fragile sensibilities makes them outraged when a game features plot points or structures that doesn't cater to their specific tastes, and instead of simply ignoring the game they want the game to change to their tastes. But they won't look to the mod community to do it, they take to Twitter and rag on the developers.

Oh, you mean like all the people sending death threats to the Last of Us 2 devs because they didn't like the plot points or structures, and it didn't cater to their specific tastes?

Those woke KotakuInAction people?
The voice actor for the antagonist of Boyfriend Dungeon is getting the same treatment...
Which sort of reinforces the point that sociopolitical lean is practically irrelevant on whether someone's an entitled little shit that takes entertainment media way too damn seriously, despite everyone rushing to peg the blame on only that.

Blizzard announces, then releases Overwatch, a reskinned TF2. Valve says nothing.
Epic releases new game mode for Fortnite which apes One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Among Us. Among Us devs cry.
Not a lot of sympathy here, but maybe they're right that a collaboration could have been a cooler implementation. But Epic isn't under any obligation to do so, and most likely they debated collaborating and the vote or decision came down on the No side.
Would've been hilarious if Valve had said something, given they'd just yoinked DotA for themselves, plus put out Artifact =p

I can tell you right now that allegations about Ubisoft Singapore are true, and should have racial/cultural discrimination added in as well (though it's not like Singapore itself doesn't have loads of that on its own, so probably not even considered).

They do a job many people would gladly do for free. I'm not saying they aren't overworked, and they may have a legitimate gripe. I think they may be seeing how much the public is hating ActiBlizz right now and are attempting to ride the coattails of those that have had actual harm done to them. I don't think its a good look.
"They do a job many people would gladly do for free"
And they'd all quit after the first hour.

Starter game QA isn't playing nearly-finished games and taking screenshots of bugs, it's spending 3h running through a checklist of all the different menus and actions in the game you can pull out a network cable and document what happens. Then the same with losing network connection. Then do the same with pressing the Home button, etc.

At higher levels you're dealing with technical debug tools and various editors, managing bug and feature tracking databases, writing plans and documentation, setting up and dealing with automation scripts, lots of politics with producers and stakeholders, and other really exciting stuff.

The whole "just play and document silly bugs" aspect is something only the most junior juniors do, usually on 3-6 month contracts, and fairly rarely (scheduled progression runthroughs for blockers, focused area testing), and it's sugarcoated as "just play games" by companies in order to attract and churn through people. Anyone that's been in QA for over a year at the same company doesn't do that part of the job anymore. It's disappointing that so many people still believe QA as a whole stops at that low level.

I loved this game, was a Souls-like a decade before Demon Souls and better than every other hack and slash game until it. Shame it seems to not come with MP; it wasn't popular, but it was also a really low-latency demanding game back in the days 250 ping was considered "pretty good" by most ISPs.

If the price is decent I might pick it up again.

Yeah, "over a decade ago when we had a lot less information" reads to me like "we tried to enforce it and someone brought a lawyer", not some sudden turn around in their attitude.

Once again Microsoft's stupidity amazes me. Why on earth would anyone with an xbox and an xbox game pass ultimate, want to an inferior experience, i.e. cloud gaming when they already have a superior alternative, playing native on an Xbox?

So they can get a few frags in from their desk at can at work?

Or is this just plain old lets sell it to the whales first?

Also notice that onlike other cloud gaming services, mobile is not supported.
Because people aren't glued to their console? Sometimes they travel, visit other places, aren't home? Or maybe their disk is full and they want to play something without downloading to try it out before going through the hassle? You don't need an Xbox for Gamepass, why would they prevent people that own one from using its features?

Also notice that onlike other cloud gaming services, mobile is not supported.
They support iphones via browser (to avoid the apple store), and have a native Android client in testing.

Also, do I need to play the previous Far Cry games to know its story/plot? Or is it a standalone game? I only played the original game.

They're all standalone, with the exception of New Dawn (carries on after 5, but is not Far Cry 6).

Why do threads about "Don't sexually assault people" always make some people devolve into "literally 1984 / dumb SJWs liberals want to take away our freedumbs"?

It's a rhetorical question, of course, I already know it's because they have the emotional intelligence of a monitor lizard and the ego of a sentient cheeto.

I'd wager some here know they're not the most respectful of women and are afraid that it may some day get called out

I have a loving wife, a daughter and a second daughter on the way. Prove that I am not respectful of woman. Come at me. I am giving you the floor. Come on. One quote. One fucking quote. Proof your case or be marked a lying troll for the rest of all future threads. Look me in the digital eye. Confront me. Convict me of the shit you tell me I should be convicted of. Right now. For all to see.

Or forever hold your toxic breath.

Not saying you are or you are not respectful towards women--However saying stuff like "I have a wife and daughter" doesn't really say anything either way. There are plenty of women that believe men should be the head of household and "traditional families" and all that just as there are a lot of women that do not believe that. All that really means is you found someone with compatible beliefs. Just like anyone can say "I have a black friend", or "I have a gay friend".

Ok let's get to the real truth. When someone has a black friend, they really can't be racist, can they? Or are you prone to interacting with people who are by definition liars to their core? That's alright, but then why rely on the shit spewed by albino monkey and Beamer? 🤭

Christ alive, how does it feel knowing that when the manifestation of ~cringe~ looks into the mirror, it's you that looks back?

Y'all know that this post was about how women would get groped, harassed, and all around mistreated by dudebros at Blizzard, right?

How did this go from "sexual assault is bad" to "there was/wasn't an attempt to overthrow the government" earlier this year...

It's a (very common) software "bug" that should've been caught, but it's in no way culpable for any GPUs dying, only in exposing poor manufacturing quality. Unless the game is somehow telling the GPU to ignore all its limits and safeguards, the thing should never die from being maxed out any more than your modem should for hitting the bandwidth limit or your monitor for setting the contrast 100%.

It boggles the mind how anyone voted for her
That's easy: she outcrazied her first opponents in order to her first nominations and wins on a small / local level, and after that she could just rely on having the R next to her name, as the vast majority of voters are absolutely clueless on the positions of each nominee (and party...) and simply vote for "our guy" / against "their guy".
