they really didn't have the stomach for a fight for market share? they got in the ground floor of game streaming, but the moment there's headwinds from MS and playstation, they up and quite a potentially huge market? smells to me like when blockbuster laughed off netflix's offer to sell for dirt cheap. game streaming will be to games what video streaming was to video rentals. i bet in 10 years 90% of the gaming market will be streaming.

why do you feel this way? it just seems like streaming is a solution looking for a problem.

there's no physical media anymore you're being spared from buying. game pass services already give you wide access to vast libraries of games. if you're price conscious, buy a console. the places where i feel like streaming would really work, like the developing world where high end hardware is expensive, have dogshit internet. actually, many parts of america have dogshit internet.

maybe there's some new part of the formula that will be introduced that will change things, but currently consumers don't seem interested.

I think this is an attempt to impress, by flexing your veteran gamer muscles

uh why? because it's old? wow finally someone acknowledging my veteran gamer status, where were you when i was talking about how much i loved the SiN tie-in in the Phantom Fury trailer? that game is even older which means i get more gamer clout on the video game website Blue's News.

here lets throw a few more of these in too you boomer goober 🤣🤣🤣🤣

i loved Sea Dogs and it's overall structure is simple and easily maps onto other games. i've been reading about skull and bones' trouble development for like 10 fucking years and this is what i think about every time. that's it! that's the reason for the post.

try to be more charitable. frantically looking for your next Le Epic Snipe is clearly leading you astray.

Lol, close to a decade since Assassin's Creed Black Flag and they had they idea to do a Pirate game divorced from the AC legacy. They can't find a way to make the game not suck.

bruv i don't get it. did nobody there play Sea Dogs? ship to ship combat and boarding, light open world, 3 to 4 branching story paths depending on who you want to privateer for.

this formula was hammered down over 20 years ago.

While it might be the truth of modern living, it isn't a necessary truth. Jack LaLanne and other fitness focused individuals have shown this. Don't get me wrong, I think exercise is two four letter words. I know I should do some basic exercises for my core so I won't have back issues, but I'll be damned if I can find the drive to do it. Being a complete lazy bum isn't all sunshine and roses you know...

(for the record, I don't often have any back issues and when I do they are usually the result of me "overdoing" something)

your comment reminded me of an article written by the legendary strength coach Mark Rippetoe i read some years ago. the parallel really tickled me:

There are times when The Conventional Wisdom and The Reality of the Situation are at odds. Our recent presidential election provides a poignant example, as does the idea that running makes you skinny, or that little kids always tell the truth...

Here's another one: Your back hurts, so you have to rest it, stretch it, go to the chiropractor for 30 visits, and then get your "core" stronger...The reality is that your back hurts because you are a bipedal, upright human over the age of 30, you can't alter this fact, and the best way to make it stop hurting is to make it stronger with squats and deadlifts.

evolutionarily our spines are basically just upright versions of structures that were not designed to function in compression, but which have to do so anyway. we can handle shear pretty well when we pick things up from the ground, since our muscles protect this position.

every adult has degenerative spinal changes, but not every adult has chronic back pain. why? because some people's backs are stronger than others.

i can assure you, dead 1960s fitness celebrity jack lalanne had a bad back, just like everyone else eventually does. if he didn't have back pain its probably because he opted to have a strong bad back, not a weak one.

I used to have back pain in my 20s. Working out cured me. When I stop, it comes back. YMMV, but exercise has so many benefits toward lifespan and healthspan, that you're remiss if you're not doing it.

the truth. we all get bad backs as we age, its just the universal of human life. you'll find life a lot more tolerable with a strong bad back instead of a weak one.

doing deadlifts with good form gave me relief from a bulging lumbar disk in like 3 or 4 weeks. used to skip leg day because i thought my knees couldn't take it (type 3 osteoarthritis in my right knee), turns out those got relief from well executed squats and deadlifts too.

i can't believe how long i lived with that shit.

i didn't know Night School were bought by netflix. maybe some stability will give them a chance to find notoriety (after throwing their last game "Afterparty" into the epic games store black hole). Oxenfree was unique, really looking forward to 2.

i'm honestly grateful to the EGS welfare system for giving cool, innovative indie studios a free lunch to keep the lights on while making good games, but the absolute vacuum of exposure on EGS for small games and small teams doesn't make it seem like a real road to success.

Agreed. I remember back from my semi pro Quake 2 and 3 playing days, a very good player with killer hand-eye coordination can easily feel the difference between 100FPS and 300FPS, above 400FPS though.....fuck me If I know, but I doubt it....

*disclaimer*

This was on 100+Hz CRT monitors, which IMO still can't be beat as far as image smoothness and latency is concerned. (Though image quality is another matter)

i'm hoping those new QLED screens finally catch back up to the CRT monitors we had 20 years ago in this regard. LCDs have been a step forward in many ways but still lag behind decades old technology in others.

This is probably amusing to PC gamers who've enjoyed the hobby since the arguments over whether the human eye can detect past 60 fps or not

man, i remember it was 30 fps when people were slapfighting over the merits of overclocking a pentium 2 back on the PlanetHalfLife forums.

i got a 38" 144hz ultrawide monitor for myself last christmas, my first upgrade in 10 or 12 years. i think it was the most transformative thing i've done for my computer since my first 3d accelerator back in 1998. it legit rekindled my interest in games single handedly.

This game would have been awesome 20 years ago, now, not so much. It is as if they are just recycling assets they own into new games instead of upgrading. Today you have one man teams making solid FPS games that look vastly better than this. Who is the target audience for this? Boomers? I am not interested.

its really funny for me personally to think back on how important and noticeable the incremental graphics increases were back in the 90s, how fast everything moved and how quickly cutting edge visuals became outdated and "unrealistic". now go back and play half life and clive barker's undying back to back and its like who cares? they exist solely on their own merits now.

its really cool that this kind of fidelity has kind of been embraced not even as an homage or out of fealty to nostalgia, but as a legit mode of expression in its own right - dusk for example accomplished a lot atmospherically with stellar art direction, sound design, and music. the level Old Time Religion stands out in my mind more than any single location from most modern games i've played in the last several years by turning the abstraction of its low-poly look into an asset, along with the phenomenal audio and stark lighting.

i don't know why i even typed all this out, this post almost seemed like a troll to me.

i wish the retro shooter business model would permit for these games being developed by more than like one single person as a passion project. i mean i assume that's the reason these games spend 2 to 4 years in EA.

realms deep was announcement after announcement of Early Access releases. the only actual 1.0 release dates i recall seeing were for prodeus and wrath - finally wrapping up their 2 year and 3.5 year EA periods.

Cultic looks outstanding but no real reason to think about it until 2024/2025 when it actually launches.

dude, this is hype as fuck. big DNF 2001 energy. the sin tie-in is weird but i'll take it, that's one of my favorite games of the 90s.

hopefully this is ACTUALLY "coming 2023", not just limping into early access to fester for 2 or 3 years as is tradition for retro shooters.

Blade's pistol from SiN makes an appearance at the end. It's too brief to tell for sure but even the level it appears in looks like SiN's opening Bank level. I could be reading too much into it though.

SiN Reloaded has been in development for ages.

nah you're definitely not reading into it, that's blade pistol with the scales of justice logo on the side and everything. oh and plus that's blade saying "you think that armor makes you look cool or something?"

last i heard on the sin reloaded project was nightdive posting a tweet asking for someone with experience with some oblique mapping program or something, since they were basically trying to emulate the old game inside their Kex engine? i could be mangling this, it was like 2 or more years ago. i really don't think its coming any time soon, sadly.

i went to check how long its been since i played this at its launch into EA. didn't feel like that long..

its been three years.

i'm not even complaining about the game's timeline, just wondering if i should keep blaming the pandemic or if i'm working too much and letting years slip through my fingers or what. i would have guessed 12 months tops.

uhh anyway i'll enjoy playing this finally. so far i've found DUSK to be the crown jewel of the retro shooter revival, but i thought this had potential to join it. had a great "quake expansion pack that never was" feel, great environments, coherent art style. highly recommend checking this out to anyone who's into the genre.
