I'm torn on this. I hear its a really good game, but I don't want to reward timed console exclusives.

And the game sales are just the tip of the iceberg. The money they make off merch is fucking insane. Anyone who thinks MS paid $2 billion just for PC/Mac sales is literally retarded.

Much more interesting than the other Win10 exclusive crap, but the problem is that Windows 10 exclusives are also MS Store exclusives, and I'm not interested in more places in which to keep my games.

News Comments > Assassin's Creed Egypt Setting Rumored
7. Re: Assassin's Creed Egypt Setting Rumored Jan 4, 2016, 19:55 NKD
 
I do like the new idea of a new trilogy. One of my main complaints with the series recently is that they don't give you enough time to get really invested in the protagonist.

You don't get that sense of a passage of time and character growth that you did with Ezio.

My other complaint is the utter gutting of the modern story. They listened to the crybullies who just wanted some historical game with no modern tie in, so we ended up with under 5 minutes of modern story over the course of a 25+ hour game in games like Unity and Syndicate. In Black Flag and Rogue we at least got to control a character, but it was a faceless nameless placeholder, not anyone we could get attached to.

That "blank slate" protagonist only works when you're making fucking choices. If we're gonna be on rails, you need to give us a protagonist we can get behind just like a book or movie would.

People complained about the Desmond storyline, but honestly I've seen a lot of people backpedal on this after seeing what the series is like without it. "Well I didn't mean they should get rid of it entirely, I just wanted more choice about when I get out of the Animus!!"

I, for one, am interested in where the modern story goes next, and I don't really want to find out in 3 minute installments each year over the next fifteen years.

They should have the game set in the Ubisoft HQ building so we can stab the bastards that put this shit out every year.

Why do you care? If it's not your thing, then you aren't buying it, and it shouldn't really affect you.

News Comments > PC Killer Instinct a Windows 10 Exclusive
14. Re: PC Killer Instinct a Windows 10 Exclusive Jan 3, 2016, 18:35 NKD
 
I'd honestly be surprised if ONE person upgraded to Windows 10 to play this game. Microsoft is never going to get their shit together when it comes to PC gaming. Either the people in charge are morons, or they are constantly being railroaded into making these shitty choices from somewhere up the food chain.

This is a nothing game that no one cares about. It's not worthy of being any kind of exclusive.

People on this site REALLY have a hard time keeping Cliffski and CliffyB separate. I swear half the hate Cliffski gets is because people are associating him with the asinine shit CliffyB has said over the years.

Surprised no one has accused him of being a know-it-all postal worker who spends all his evenings in a bar.

And what if you don't agree with the agreement? Are you supposed to lose everything you've paid for up until now? That's ridiculous.

Well maybe you shouldn't have purchased game titles you knew were dependent on continued access to a service to run. Everyone who makes purchases on Steam knows what they are getting into on that front.

Nothing changes for European customers... except for that tax evasion move of Valve by moving to Luxembourg!

I think you misread the notice. The bulk of their business, digital content and services, is moving FROM Luxembourg to their main US entity. While the hardware side of things is now being handled in Luxembourg, which is a lot smaller part of their business.

Highly unlikely that the "caching partner" (most likely Akamai) will have any data on this. They are optimized for performance, not logging something that's virtually impossible to log anyway.

I think Valve added that last comment knowing fully it's BS.

Not necessarily. When discovering the issue, they could well have requested that Akamai store the current cache to inspect later. You're correct that, in normal circumstances, there would be no long term retention of data. But the fact that this was caught while it was ongoing means they could certainly have had Akamai freeze that data. At that point it's just a matter of sifting through it and hopefully finding a nice automated way of identifying which user accounts go with what cached pages.

Iíve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character.í

Fair enough, actually. Doing background research into how the Character is in game. /cheers for that at least. Shows somebody in the film will be trying.

And you cannot get deep into the main character anyways. Aside from his family heritage story line, the guy is a cardboard cut out of a game character if I ever seen one. I think its designed to let you play as "yourself" I guess. Honestly seen more depth in GTA:V's characters'.

He's not playing any of the game characters. He's playing two new characters, a guy in modern times, and then his ancestor in the Animus. I think he was more referring to the general idea of what an Assassin is.

Shouldn't affect the project too much. Senior Development Director is basically a dev wrangler. Helps setup workflows and procedures. I'd hope that shit is pretty stable by now and it shouldn't take much to get a new guy up to speed.

Video game movie so I don't have much hope, but I really like Michael Fassbender.

Like all video game movies, this one is going to suck donkey balls. I don't get why it's so hard to make a video game movie.

Historically it's been because the game's story is either not good to begin with (Resident Evil movies, Max Payne, Wing Commander), or not really translatable to a movie because it's not a story driven game (Hitman, DoA), or because the project fails to attract proper talent and you end up with a film directed by a potato (Wing Commander with Christ Roberts, All Uwe Boll films)

This is something that plain should not happen if there were professionals at work behind the Steam curtains.

Hate to break it to you dude, but there are none of these completely infallible "professionals" you allude to available to be hired anywhere on the planet. And even if there were, they'd still run into issues caused by some programmer five degrees of separation away from their organization.

Your personal information is literally never safe, anywhere. I know it must make you feel better to pretend this is some one-off incident because Valve is an especially shitty company or something, and all those OTHER companies you give your info to would NEVER make a mistake of this kind. But the reality is that this can and, given enough time, will happen to any system you place your personal info into.

Conduct yourself accordingly.

Some inmates already due for release were getting out a few months early due to inaccurately applied "good behavior" credit. Can't say it bugs me too much. It's not like mass murderers serving life sentences were getting out, or people were getting years shaved off their sentence.

I do wonder how they didn't catch this for 13 years though.

Yeah man organized crime never does anything for shock value.

He's supposed to be a trained soldier with designs on actually gaining power. He should be professionally dispatching enemies and not acting like a low level goon. He should know that sneaking into an enemy establishment isn't the time for shock value.

He's not supposed to be that if they don't want him to be that. You should look at what organized crime has done over the years. It's not always subtle, not always in the shadows, and certainly not always violence free.

These are criminals we're talking about, not a 75,000 year old organization of Assassins.
