MKX hasn't had a community on the PC for a long time. I can see why they wouldn't want to bother. Sucks for the die-hards who were still hanging on though.

Unfortunately they decided to let the AI cheat instead of putting any real work into it and this is what we get.

You know I really get tired of seeing this shit. There are a lot of really smart people out there working on AI for gaming applications, but there are a lot of hurdles.

You know how up until a few years ago, you needed a really powerful machine to reliably beat a skilled human at something as simple as chess? Now take chess, add 20 new pieces, remove the predefined movement grid, and make it realtime. Add another player or 3 or 4 while you're at it as well. Oh, and you have to actually run the game and render the shit at the same time, on a $1000 PC.

There's the problem with developing AI for RTS, and why RTS has always been primarily a player versus player affair. Similar problems arise for just about any AI in a realtime game. You can do a bit better with turn-based games since you can allow more time for computation and deal with things discretely rather than continuously. But you're still dealing with needing algorithms way more complicated than for chess.

Oh, and you can never reuse those algorithms because no two games are the same.

It's not a matter of laziness or misplaced focus, it's just a massive technical cockblock that will not be conquered with conventional computing.

Right, how many PC users happen to have Visual C installed?

Can't believe this bunch of yuppies can't be bothered to generate a windows executable download.

They probably don't want a bunch of dumbasses who have no business downloading early dev builds doing so and complaining that it isn't 100% functional yet.

Why the bait? Or do you deny something that Forbes publishes yearly? I don't fall for conspiracy theories. Here is the Forbes 500 list, so you can have a look at it yourself.

Forbes 500

If you don't believe that these people are ultimately the ones influncing politics worldwide (mostly through US policy, where campaign and lobby dollars is the name of the game) I've got a bridge to sell you, dirt cheap.

It just seemed to be where you were going with it. But yes, money is the universal fuel. You can't do anything without money and you can do the most when you have the most money. I'm not really sure why you're even trying to argue with me to be honest, as you've said nothing I disagree with. I just pointed out that Putin's buddies over in Russia own a wacky variety of shit. Diversity like crazy.

Will keep an eye on this. As someone already mentioned, former Mozilla CTO/CEO is running this project apparently. Firefox served me well back in the day, so the guy must have at least some clue what he's doing.

It's actually really funny how many things Putin's oligarch cronies own.

Did you know that Daybreak games, formerly SOE, got purchased by a company that is a subsidary of a Russian conglomerate run by one of Putin's buddies?

Christ harlock, you're such a douchebag

I see it's the cool thing to do to rag on this chick, but she does have a point in that video games over-sexualizing women. Some of the ways games cater to teenager or early twenties guys is truly pathetic.

For instance, that character in MGS. Dunno her name, never played the series

Who cares? If game developers like making that shit, more power to 'em. Especially if people are buying the games. As long as marketing guys aren't coming in and forcing them to add it, it's cool with me.

What I'm not cool is pretentious smug douchebaggery where guys pretend they are above being titillated, or people trying to shame game developers for any sexualized content.

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey will be sued for breach of contract.

The plot thickens. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.

Of course, FB came into this well after the fact, so not sure why they are a defendant?

Never heard of this company so Facebook lawyers will probably keep them tied up in court forever and then some settlement will be reached.

That Hero's Song thing seems interesting. 2D ARPG aimed for more hardcore players, and hey whats this? You can actually host your own servers. What a novel concept.

It's also interesting to see Smedley doing something that doesn't promise the world. This looks like a project that could actually conceivably be made.

Another anime titty simulator with a shitty localization and the absolutely stellar (lol) support of NCSoft. It's a rough time to be an MMO fan. There's just nothing even remotely good on the horizon. It's all a bunch of tiny studio titles that won't happen and Asian imports that are no good.

Plenty of titles with kinda-MMO-ish online modes, but nothing like a true feature rich persistant world.

Seems pretty optimistic but maybe they are counting on success with Rift and Vive translating into a lot of cheaper shitty models being shovelled out and consumed by the millions.

Let's hope it's not like Prometheus. There's plenty of opportunity for a great movie in the AC lore.

I actually really enjoyed Prometheus, but yes, this is one of those game series that has enough meat on its bones to actually make a decent movie if the producers put in the right amount of effort.

Another thing they have going for them is that they are not actually adapting a game, but rather making a movie set in the same universe. They don't have to worry about nailing down the personality (or lack thereof) of a sketchily written game character, or condensing a plot that played out over multiple games down into 2 hours.

They've got a very solid lead actor. Some great supporting actors (Jeremy Irons, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams). Their cinematographer is the guy who did True Detective season 1.

Some downsides: The director doesn't seem to have done much of note, nor the writers.

We'll see what happens.

We need more great people like MLK Jr these days. People who can do more than rally their base, but reach across divides and get people together.

There is no dialogue on real issues today. It's always just people splitting into two camps and slinging mud, and nothing is ever accomplished.

This dynamic, of course, favors the status quo.
