Typical, inevitable, sarcastic comment about how piracy kills the industry, particularly in regard to PC, and how a high profile game let alone distributor without DRM will fail miserably etc..

Compared to Skyrim it did in fact "fail" pretty miserably. Who knows how many more copies it would have sold with just a little copy protection? Why did the arguably better game not sell more copies than the worse game in the same genre from five years ago?

Just because they made fucktons of money does not necessarily mean by default that it is a smart move to serve the game to the filthy thieves on a golden platter.

Absolutely no use for a curved monitor. Bought one to try it out and ended up returning it.

Might work for TV's where you sit some distance from the TV, but for a monitor just flat out stupid.

I agree. I went to a brick&mortar store a few months ago to check out all the curved screens on display to see for myself what all the hubbub is about and the answer is it's fookin' retarded. It looks like crap and actually interferes negatively with the user experience especially in everyday desktop usage.
Seriously, unless you're some kind of animal or alien with frog eyes, you're not going to be able to convince me with a straight face that a curved screen is actually worth having.

I could *maybe* see some very limited use in a home cockpit environment where you are sitting pretty close to the screen and use it 99.9% of the time for pure racing/flying but in a regular home PC environment with a typical mix of internet, gaming, pr0n and other media? Fuck no.

It's an even lamer fad than 3D and VR. I sincerely hope it goes away real soon.

I bought a PS3 copy of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen a few months back, finally got around to actually playing it... the game is actually really good! Minor Consolitis of course.

Your PS3 copy of DD:DA has "minor consolitis"? Real shocker right there, bro!

I mean we all know that most console games have absolutely no consolitis at all, right?

Great use of development funds right there, Ubi. Congratz. Now please crank out more garbage F2P games instead of using any funds to make a decent Rainbow Six or Ghost Recon game with a single player campaign. Or maybe even a new Might&Magic? Nah. Please don't. That would make sense and would probably even yield a profit. Boring, right? Why do any of that if you can just have fun and sink a few more ships eh?

7) Paying for PC franchises like Tomb Raider to be timed exclusives

To be fair (which is really hard whenever Microshit is involved, of course, but let's try...), Tomb Raider has always been a multiplatform game but, yeah, splurging money with the sole intention to withhold the game from a subset of their customers was still just as shabby and despicable as every other timed exclusive they did in the history of the Shitbox.

10) Forcing Ensemble Studios to make a XB1 exclusive RTS game then shuttering it when it underperformed

Dude? Ensemble was shut down in 2009. There wasn't any XB1 to be seen anywhere back then.
The only console game they did was Halo Wars which got a 82 average score on MC which isn't that bad. The reason for the closure of Ensemble and Aces given on Wikipedia is... "In 2009, Microsoft Studios disbanded both Ensemble Studios and Aces Studio due to the effects of the late-2000s financial crisis and the restructuring of their game development studios.".

When will Microsoft learn that fucking over PC gamers isn't a good business strategy?

As long as Phil Spencer is there: Never. Phil is all about fucking PC gamers in the big A.

ok so Halo is an xbox title...

xbox is entirely based on AMD hardware.

recommended specs for pc feature intel and NVidia...

Something smells in Denmark.


You beat me to the same remarks...;) Microsoft is just simply dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to gaming--for reasons I will never, ever understand.

One HUGE reason is very simple and it even has a name: Phil Spencer.

They don't--have to remember Microsoft paid $2B for Minecraft--a game that when they bought it was already "as old as the hills and 2x as dusty"...;) Think about that...for the same money Microsoft could have opened a new game studio and published fifty AAA titles @ an average investment of $50M *each*...! What a colossal waste of money.

Indeed. The saddest part is those fuckers shut down Ensemble and Aces but then cough up $2bn for some third rate casual garbage. We could happily be building empires in AoE VII or fly around all over the world in an awesome true next gen sim with FS12 or whatever version we'd be at by now.

All of that for a minuscule fraction of that $2bn and I'm betting they'd still make a profit from these "niche" PC-exclusive games IF they would actually give a shit and support/market them properly.

The flight sim and add-on community is still alive and kicking. There are literally dozens of companies who are able to survive just fine by selling add-ons for a decade old sim that supposedly "does not sell".

Going by that logic they should "recall" every single fucking burger because it is an insult to every consumer's intelligence and an injury to the body. Worst food and worst company in the world.
I don't get how retarded you have to be to eat that shit. I mean this ain't the 80s anymore. We now have the internet where you can actually inform yourself about how shitty that stuff is.

I know how shitty it is for me, and I still occasionally visit for a burger or something else.

And that is why you fail...

Vive probably more attractive to devs cuz hand contollers.

Maybe because it's superior in every way?

(Is it though?)

Nope. Roomscale aside (you can really only do that with the Vive but it comes with a shitload of its own issues), the OR has generally gotten more favorable reviews especially in terms of image quality. Too bad it's just as fucking expensive and associated with Facebook though.
I'm hoping the Vive will catch up or surpass the OR in quality with version 2 or 3 and drop massively in price. Only then would I even consider a purchase.

Hahaha unskippable intro, microtransactions, a chopped to bits story... it keeps getting better and better. Originally I thought I might get the GOTY for $4.99 on sale but looks like $2.99 is going to have to do. Or maybe for the first time in a long time I'll just pirate this shit. Haven't done that in years so might be fun just for shits and giggles.

OK, so Im curious about this. How dos it work or will it work? If you own current titles you can play them on the PC?

For PS4 titles you already own, you're obviously better off just playing them on the feckin' console or check the fourth paragraph of the article which refers you to Remote Play... well, unless this shit happens:

  • Some games do not support Remote Play.


  • It's very nice and forward-looking of Sony, of course, to not provide a list of supported games of any sort. Great thinking.

    Reviews say the gameplay is good, but the ending is bad. But I've also seen folks say it takes 20+ hours to get to the end, so 20 hours of good DX is good for me, even if the ending is subpar.



    I haven't read any reviews since I am more or less going in to it blind but is it a rushed story telling kind bad or cliffhanger kind of bad?

    According to the reviews it is rushed, i.e. you happen to bump into a boss fight more or less accidentally, long before any loose ends are tied up, and then the credits roll by.
