I shouldn't be happy that a game sucks but... it's sure nice to save the money! So much on it's way, so much in the account I could spend a hundred more hours in. And those last two games were so good it almost doesn't matter that they Arkham Knighted' this one (A game I loved on PS4, but this dosn't seem as ambitious even without the bugs)

Also I think I had my fill of (Jim sterling voice) TRIIIPLE AAAAAAAAAA with the glorious God of War. Maybe playing that again will be a good enough fix of TPP action.

Like, Spiderman seems great but I bet it will be even better at 60% off in 4 months!

News Comments > Halo 5 Guardians Coming to PCs?
22. Re: Halo 5 Guardians Coming to PCs? Sep 11, 2018, 07:58 Numinar
 
I'm a massive Halo tragic, but I still don't have an X1. Been thinking about it more seriously for a year.

Red Dead 2 is my cutoff. My old man dosn't have a PS4 so I'll need to get a x1s so we can drink whiskey and do cowboy shit once we are too drunk to fly planes.

Would also love to take the kid through the Haloz, those games are important to me and I feel hold up better than a lot of their contemporaries. Especially the co-op.

Also taking turns in Sea of Theives is fun but if we could get a mini-lan going that would be great. Even a x1x is less than a quarter of what a meaningful 2nd PC/upgrade would cost. Shit, it's less than the videocard alone I'd need to see meaningful gains over the one I have.

So good work Mircosoft. You've finally almost convinced me maybe to get one. Announce MCC for Win10 with cross-platform play and I'll think about it even harder... let me do that lease to own deal the yanks get and I'll grab a x1x immediately.

You've just shot a guy in the head, or perhaps beaten him to death with a shovel, but you're delicate sensitivities are offended by a four letter word. Is that the typical BF player now?

Offended is the wrong word for me. 4chanite edgelord manbaby assholes with their Swastika's made out of dicks for player logos spewing absolute trash in general chat are just something that takes away from the fun of digital murder for me and I assume many others. If that means I have to keep the swears I love to Discord than so be it. I can't call people at work, the cinema or the kids soccer games cunts either but I'm not going to whinge about it.

Why would anyone buy this on the PC lol?

Because the previous entry was pretty awesome on PC? And ran at higher resolution and framerate than console? (That said my GPU is only slightly better than their minimum, so it might not work out so well this time).

I know that's just me though. "Consolised crap" isn't popular around here unless it's a Rockstar or CD project game.

I feel bad for them, I never had the patience to go more than a few thousand LY of star-hopping but Frontier said quite clearly many years ago that those who strip down their ships for jump efficiency will pay for not having teeth and shields at some stage.

Once valued at 9 Billions Dollars and now dead. Who gets to keep that magical "valued" money.
I have little doubt Holmes cashed out most if not all of her shares well before the collapse. She knew it was a scam from the beginning, so she would have been careful to grab the money when it was available.

She won't go to jail. She's pretty and blonde.

They'll make an example of her because of that. She'll see 20 plus years.

Yep, she's not part of the protected class. She should have tried this after 40 years of making lots of compromised deals with other rich friends. Then you get looked after. Unless you go full Madoff. (Although if you do it as a Bank executive you get a bailout and bonus instead of jail).

Yep. It's not for crime fighting, though pedo/terrorist hunting will be used to justify making tech firms comply. It's to get a leg up in trade negotiations/industrial espionage (Stealing German wind turbine tech and passing it to US firm, passing on info from private conversations of a Japanese trade delegation are known examples, our fucking allies!) oh and of course influence elections to benefit us most economically and spy on each others citizens to circumvent domestic protections so they can suppress dissent.

Not like those nations are the only ones who do it, but it makes us basically all client states of the US and the pretending to be so much better than the Ruskis and Chinese whilst doing the same bloody shit is pretty gross.

Valve will never make HL3, they have way to much to lose, if the game isnt the "best thing ever" then they are sunk. They are just better left messing up CSGO.

Yeah what are the chances it will be as good as Metro Last Light? (Which could almost pass for HL3 if you lost the stealth bits, same dedication to post apocalyptic first person story telling with cutting edge rendering).

And even though they have the resources and could hire multiple 200 man AAA teams for decades and write the cost off as a rounding error, if they were successful they would probably make themselves a prime target for a monopoly busting regulator to split them in two anyway. Surprised it hasn't happened already to be honest given how represented Dota2, CSGO and TF2 are in the Steam rankings (I suspect there is no favoritism given to them, or if there is it's very subtle, I guess even silicon valley tech bros have some measure of honor).

Anyone actually playing scum? Is it the next PUBG (Which I love) or is it some edgelord flash in the pan?

Getting anxious waiting for Frozen Synapse 2 to drop so I just purchased Into the Breach for the second time on Switch... it's so good. Nothing else interesting seems to be happening in PC world at the moment.

As for Theme XXXXXXX game, I think those are the only two Bullfrog games I didn't like, but I respect the taste of several people who love them and if this new game does it well then that's awesome. I'm still waiting for my modern take on Syndicate/Magic Carpet/DK/Powermonger/Populous. (Satellite Reign/Dungeons do not count, I've checked)

Science at work! No single paper is worthy of trust. Maybe you can start thinking about policy changes when you have a dozen independent and consistently replicated papers.

Problem is media just reports the exciting shit when it happens, and it warps our view of what is actually probable and supported by evidence.

I'll give it a shot, but the streams i watched seemed to be nothing more than left mouse button spam.

When done well it seems like that for some characters, but you die fast if you stuff up. You need to create and maintain space, choke points and callout specials, juggle your resources correctly and stay together, though lower difficulties are not so bad.

I love it, but haven't played in a while. It can be very stressful! Might jump on this weekend and get back into it after all the patches and not feel like such a useless grub due to the new people everywhere. I loved it even before the loot rework and balance changes, it's the first of these since Payday 2 that has really grabbed me.

Who knows if they have really fixed the Mister Cheif Collection shitstorm they had at launch (Mostly in the MP part if I recall), but 4K HDR on X1X, and a release to gamepass which I already pay for?

Well MS, it's taken you what, 5 years? But I think you've finally sold me on this thing.

Look the fuck out credit card, you are about to get some serious damage, it's OLED time!

And before anyone joins Seph on the 'ass in the clouds, head in the ass' brigade, I did read the article and there was some wacky shit going down there.

I firmly believe that rather than just addressing the problem directly with some firings, they are doing this purely for the brownie points from people who won't even play their game. More power to em for throwing away money for pyrrhic gains, because we all know that as soon as they step out of line, any fans garnered by them will immediately turn on them. The left eats itself, that is well known by now. Fix your shit and stop pretending to be white knights.

Vritue Signal, the made up act that only sociopaths without empathy believe in because otherwise they would have to face the fact that they are an absolute cunt.

I think the problem is the article that bought this on was a nasty exposť of Riot (What, ethical journalism? We didn't mean that!), and that has damaged their reputation in a way that makes working with other companies and hiring people that are not the typical MOBA meatheads become more difficult. Hence meetings, maybe some outside consultants, more meetings, some considered damage control and a plan of action as seen.

They might not fire anyone, but if they take action and this is not just a 'virtue signal' (Which would only make things worse) I'm sure a everyone will be put on notice. It's like substance abuse in the workplace. Maybe first warning or two you have to take the course or get a bit of unpaid leave, then OUT.

I mean, I get it, I've said some gross inappropriate shit in my time and will continue to do so. But If I do it in a professional setting I can expect to get the ass and I'll have nobody to blame but myself.

Mainly video games for people who can't afford the system. So now we have three tiers of gamers. The PC Master Race, the console peasants, and the gamer dregs consisting of Xbox One X renters, casual Phone apps, and Microsoft Solitaire. Ironically that last segment is probably more profitable than the prior two.

I'm already in all three of those categories. There is good stuff happening everywhere, and some indie stuff is better on Switch depending on your lifestyle. Sure PC is the best, but to play the laterst stuff at least at QHD it would cost as much as buying every single console. Shit, even my mid range 2016 video card cost more than any console currently on the market at the time.

Probably going to crack and get an S if it takes much longer for this deal to reach AU, or if it gets here and is even more ridiculously overpriced. Sure it is just Sea of Thieves MP with the kid and Master Chief collection I want, but the backwards compat isn't bad, and the X is currently the best place to play Read Dead Redemption.

That said for the price of an S I could get Track IR so I can have less excuses for being rubbish in DCS... god this hobby is a money sink. I kind of wish I was just a narrow minded single platform supremacist sometimes.

Just Ban them for all but a few reasons, and put enough tax, checks and paperwork between the punters and the deathsticks and it will be much better.

Existing ones are fine, though a buyback scheme can help thin the herd. Once they are worth 10x as much to purchase legally, the black market will follow and impulse murder/suicide will drop dramatically. You'll still be able to hunt, use on the farm, target shoot and even collect them but you wont be able to go buy one for a weeks pay at the mall. See ALMOST EVERYWHERE ELSE for examples.

But I know you wont do anything, yanks will invade other countries for less than what plentiful cheap firearms do to your populace in a week and and most your leaders are in the pocket of the MiC.

And whats this fix mental health thing? Yes it's underfunded and people need more help then they are getting but you are not gonna prevent this kind of lunacy. Most mentally ill people are not murderers. You want to round up the crazies? Really? I'm pretty sure that ignores even more parts of the original constitution and amendments, most of which are far more useful than the one there to prevent slave rebellions in the late 18th century.

I thought you needed your guns for freedom but the answer you gun nuts go to first is locking people up for pre-crime because they seem a bit unstable. What a joke.

Any outrage over inclusivity in games is so bleeding stupid. Made up fantasy war? That describes EVERY Battlefield. Even the first one. It's a reality themed nonsense game. We've had jetpacks and guns that don't jam and can be used in/after being immersed in water and being teleported into active vehicles that never suffer mechanical failures and which you can drive/fly with almost zero training for over a decade and a half. Some of us enjoy it.

BF1 actually did a pretty good job of giving the player some sense of what the last months of WW1 looked like, in a way that no other AAA game has ever tried, so give it some props. Maybe BFV will do the same for some lesser known parts of WW Deuce. But it was also ridiculous, fun nonsense like the screenshot I got of my Dad standing on the turret of a small tank in the streets of Amien mowing down Germans in 1918 like an avenging angel of Mons back for action.

Plenty of games go for more realism, but even then it's all just a pretend fantasy war. Short of 1hr server bans for player death which nobody is going to do it's all nonsense.

I mean, I know no ladyfolk have viewed or posted openly on Blues in living memory but it stinks of the privilege of a bunch of babies who are used to being able to identify with the vast majority of game avatars by default that a bit of creative anachronism has them decrying the fall of civilization, whilst they continue to swallow a huge bag of unhistorical garbage in all but the most grognard of hex based strategy games. Get a grip.

I for one would trade the 30 trumptarded sexist monsters in every BF game for the ability of my daughter to play dress ups before squad ups. God if they boycott it permanently I'd preorder every BF game from here till the end of time.

Well, I'm interested, because MoW:AS2 is an amazing game, but this smells a bit cash grabby, since MoW:AS2 is what, 4-5 years old now, and the company theoretically moved on to a new franchise, Call to Arms?

I'll have to check it out though most likely; Assault Squad 2 is awesome.

Fantastic game, but a lot of the post release stuff has fallen flat for me. My old man and I love the co-op though so are always up for more of it. I wish more strategy games let individual soldiers do their own thing. It's not quite close combat but watching some survivor go rambo in a trench unbidden, or a lost grenadier assassinating a tiger stupid enough to be caught without infantry screening is always amazing.
