I couldn't even imagine being possible in the 90's.
Sigh, you are the exact kind of stupid moron I'm talking about, you don't realize how fucking stupid you are.
Starcraft 2 became a drm ridden f2p game selling skins to kids
Diablo 3 has single player fucking lag, and because of drm no fucking modding... sigh.
Quake champions... no fucking modding, sdk's, level editors, or all that cool shit we got in the 90's.
Doom 2016 -- snapmap, instead of the amazing modding and editing community of doom.. they had a chance to totally bring back the modding scene of doom like the 90's and they went and consolized the shit out of the modding and editing.
So many of our favorite properties have gone to shit because of the drm and microtransaction beast unleashed by the mmo/steam generation of gaming retards.
So no, if you believe this is the best time in gaming history. You're pretty much fucking retarded. Having level editors and modding in the AAA space was expected in the 90's, now it's on life support. So gaming is nowhere near as cool as it should have been if people had not fucking bought stolen games... which is what drm is. Games you don't own nor control.
"service based games" was the biggest scam ever that began with mmo's, ceo's and greedy dev's asked themselves how they could bend over the average consumer retard and get you to pay more money for less content and boy the last 20 years has been full retard levels of anti consumer behavior unleashed by the internet giving access to the mouthbreathing half of mankind.
Modern gaming is a retard dystopia for anyone who loved the gaming properties of the 90's.

Thanks, Numinar. Sold, but I'm going to wait for a sale. I have a HOTAS, but I'll use my VR headset instead of Track IR.
I still can't believe that they got the rights to use those songs in that trailer.

LOL you all complain about epic games but let's be honest, as soon as you all accepted drm an mmo's, you already fucked yourselfs. The fact that steam even exists... means that battle was lost 20 years ago when people bent over and gave up game ownership when PC RPG's were being rebranded mmo's...
When everyone bent over for everquest, ultina online, world of warcraft and guild wars 1 with drm... you all told the game industry you were worthless fucks who deserve to get raped. The plan since the 90's was always to remove game and software ownership from the stupid and ignorant masses of mankind.
Anyone who was a PC game nerd in the 90's is pretty fucking mad that the PC gaming future became a fucking f2p, live service dystopia because moronic masses kept feeding money to games they didn't own and hostile anti consumer practices.
Epic games is hardly a fly on the wall in this battle, the fact that they are working on game streaming to seal all games permanently behind a drip fed encrypted stream eventually will come and I'm sure you'll all bend over for that too.
The battle was lost as soon as the stupid masses got internet. In the 90's we were protected from the mmo mouthbreathers and half-life and counterstrike addicts who enabled gabe to steal half-life and counterstrike.
The internet undermined gamers ability to hold these companies accountable.

I played the pen and paper Cyberpunk 2020 when I was younger, and there were definitely on females in it. Sickens me to see ProjectRed thinks they are sooo woke.

They do make good trailers though... just a shame about the gameplay.

I haven't read what people have typed, pardon me if this has been said, but an idea I have is:
Half-Life 3, Portal 3, and LFD3 haven't been developed because Valve doesn't have the pressure of competition on Steam to bother with making their own in-house exclusives to attract/keep users to their platform.
Perhaps the success of other platforms will wake up the giant that is Valve game development?

Releasing in stages is a good plan, actually. The original’s main issue was all the multiplayer was divided by each game. This way people will naturally move from one to the next for the online multiplayer and the playerbase won’t be scattered.
I’m excited about this, as long as they don’t try to act like it can command $60. $30 or below and it’ll probably do quite well.
As for it looking old, Halo 1 looks mreh even with the update, but halo 2 and ESPECIALLY 4 look incredible. H2 was rebuilt specifically for this collection, and 4 was visually IMPOSSIBLY better looking than anything else at the time. Gears3 was the same way, both looked like something from two console generations ahead.

In what is a sort of response to accusations of anti-consumer practices and the fact that the Epic Games Store lacks all but the most basic aspects of the Steam client....
Sergey Galyonkin (@galyonkin), Director of Publishing Strategy for Epic Games Store, liked the tweet from popular russian gaming-and-pop culture account @turbojedi which reads: ”The most remarkable thing about the whole Epic Games Store movement is gamers, who are accustomed to the fact that videogame developers/publishers owe them something by default, finally discover that unpleasant aggressive assholes with hysteric requirements are sometimes still sent to fuck off.”
Okay...I won't buy your game then.
At some point Epic is going to have to compete with something besides paying off game devs for exclusivity. Because if that is their strategy going forward it is going to be rather expensive.
As evidenced by the fact that the developer can comfortably offer refunds. That says a lot about their financial status. Epic is footing the bill.

Hrm... I'll try it, but BFV Conquest is in a pretty good place right now, hate to see DICE losing their focus trying to cater to the BR market.

Erm... it's an app that is basically linking to the website to submit government form requests. As the government in question is pretty high on the injustice scale, yes, some of those documents are going to also be unjust. Google can't just ban an app without good cause when it doesn't violate TOS (this would also be unjust).
They could look at updating the TOS, but one that would provide grounds to ban this app, while not also providing grounds to ban some apps I think most would agree are OK (say, a bank app that allows you to submit a loan application) would have to be pretty narrow. Still worth looking into.
Apple has a little more discretion here, which is pretty shitty some of the time when they don't allow something onto the store that they should, but might help here.
But the real issue is the Saudi regime. Not the app. The app can in fact actually help in some ways - I heard (heresay) that if a woman can access her husband's phone, this gives her a bit more flexibility than she would have had to try and go in person to an office to try and convince them to increase her travel permit etc. I don't know if that's true or propaganda. But either way, banning the app doesn't ban the forced slavery/prostitution of saudi women. Once again, congress barks up the wrong tree.
And complaining about google and apple letting the app be there is a third step removed from the actual problem.

Love the concept. Looks fairly low-rent however. Would love to see something like this as a first person survival game.
Ugh, no. The last thing the world needs is yet another FPS Survival game, we're practically inundated with them!
