I think I read that Playstation has one year of exclusivity, then other platforms. I'm not sure if that includes PC.

I checked out the demo. Graphically it's obviously very impressive, and the switch to more active, action-type combat was probably the right move. The menu systems from the original probably wouldn't fly today.

Voice acting was pretty good for the most part. Badger from Breaking Bad does the voice for Wedge in the opening, which makes me happy.

I'm not thrilled that they're breaking the game into [three?] installments though. I may pass on principle alone.

Stupid is taking a response out of the context of what it's responding to. It was said they have no plans whatsoever to support the next-gen hardware based on one little snippet of this announcement, and I said that's jumping to conclusions. Assuming the delay is to align with the launch of said hardware is a similar leap.

Actually, fair enough. I suppose my response was more intended for McTurbo. You are correct, the comment you were responding to did make it sound like they have no intention of releasing on next-gen hardware. Apologies.

It'd probably take longer than that to rebuild and upscale it, plus the new Xbox is very specific about being backwards compatible so there's no true software difference, plus it would be a much smaller install base even if consoles have launched - games often release first on the old, then on the new.

That's what I was thinking. More likely we'll see a "remastered" or optimized version to follow on next-gen hardware. Not unlike The Last of Us, which released towards the end of the PS3's lifecycle.

Is placing your own emphasis on a word in that phrase your only evidence? Bit of a leap, there.

So, let me get this straight. You conspiracy theorists think they're delaying this game to September so that it can launch on next-gen consoles that won't yet be released?

Straight up stupid, there.

I thought the first episode of The Witcher was pretty good.

I'm trying to hold off on watching it too fast.

Polygon has a nasty review about it, so that's a good sign.

LASIK eye surgery: Retired FDA adviser who voted to approve procedure says it should be taken off market.

I had this done 10 years ago and I think it was the best money I've ever spent. it dramatically improved my life for every single second i'm awake.

I also understand that there's complications that can arise with everything. I wonder if these guys did PRK or regular lasik surgeries.

Seconded! Not only the best money I've ever spent, but probably the best decision I've ever made...I hope that doesn't say too much about me

Garrett should never play again.

But, the NFL is a joke.

Nah I looked up the original statement too. It wasn't as clear as the new one, but it still said it "support[ed] individuals sharing their views"

Interesting. The internet rage machine rolls on...

This isn't the only place I'm seeing stuff negative towards the NBA today... It's like bizarro world where everyone is acting like Silver punished a player/personnel or kowtowed to China.. but then when I go read the statements it's the opposite. He said they supported freedom of expression and could not and would not regulate what players/personnel could say. China didn't like that and canceled showing of pre-season games...

Agreed, I woke up and saw tweets/memes along the lines of this one, but then a minutes later I was seeing the opposite.

I think the NBA/Silver sort of did an about face, or at least strengthened their stance.

There's a long way to go before esports competitors have any "rights" like those owned by professional athletes from their employers.

Sucks that he lost his prize money, but sometimes it's expensive to remove a person's head from their own ass.

Really? Try telling that to those in the NBA.

Looks like the commissioner supported freedom of speech and China didn't like that... am I missing something?

I think the NBA originally put out a pretty non-supporting, milquetoast response. Then Adam Silver gave a stronger one defending NBA employees' and players' right to voice their opinion.

But let's be honest, Cutter probably just doesn't know what he's talking about.
