This is the one that was most concerning to me,
aim assist when using the mouse if you simply plug in a controller.
and
rebinding keys doesn't work

i didn't even see the rebinding part. what a silly feature to leave out of a beta.

still, it is only a beta, i don't think anyone expects the final code to ship in that state. i think the proliferation of public betas and early access has made people forget that beta code is rough around the edges, but not letting you rebind keys is really stupid.

No really surprised, Doom is a console ported pile of trash.

Doom beta lacking key PC features

the advanced graphic options uncovered address many of their complaints about graphics adjustment. the fps cap can be set to 144, for example. fov can supposedly be set via launch command. i fully expect that option to ship in final code, along with options for their mouse quibbles.

a server browser, who knows. it's more surprising when a game has it than not to me.

The char models in the game are pretty sexualized as it is, why is this pose a problem? its a non-story compared to the other female characters.

the guy who wrote the criticism said characters like d'va and widowmaker were defined by their sexuality - and flaunting it - and had no problem with it; whereas tracer was not. he said the sexuality seemed out of place for her.

i don't agree with his argument but it's internally consistent.

predictably, the headline simply triggered full outrage vocabulary in people who didn't click on it or read the article, "sjw" and "cuck" already swimming through their minds.

The weird thing though is that it's only a sexual pose if you perceive it to be as such, after-all, other characters have the exact same pose. Then argument then moves from that to the notion that she's wearing skin-tight clothing which accentuates her behind, which honestly has been consistent since the release of the first Tracer image. Don't believe me, check out almost every art asset related to Tracer, up to and including the full-size statue of her.

It then moves on from that to "it doesn't fit the character" to which most would argue that what about the pose itself doesn't fit the character? I mean, could it be better? Yes...you could have her doing anything 'playful' while still in that pose and would that change the opinion of it? I doubt it.


i disagree with with his opinion for this and other reasons. it's presumptive that a woman flaunting her sexuality is exclusive from other personality characteristics; and most of all that this behavior is negative and should be discouraged compared to jumping around and shooting people. this is a very male point of view to have.

but he clearly thought about it, it wasn't just some fatass otherkin on tumblr tweeting their faux-outrage.

every story trailer for this looks like it could be summed up as "i'll show you, surrogate father figure!!" looks just as bad as the first one when it comes to story.

i'm just glad they gave the franchise another chance. i really liked the original, opening up the maps like they're planning is going to take it to the next level.

California raises minimum wage to $15 an hour. As a Web UX Developer / Programmer I will make a slight dozen digits more* than someone who flips hamburgers, stuffs lettuce in a taco, and drops fries in a vat of grease. These are no skill jobs. They're not suppose to be living income jobs. People who "settle" at minimum wage jobs basically gave up on life. It's not the government's job to force companies to give these people a 6% raise every year for the next six years!

*I care not to say specifically how much


someone needs to do these jobs. america doesn't need 300 million software developers. it needs people to cook food, clean toilets and paint lines on the highway. and yes - all those people "deserve" to pay rent and put food on the table.

why don't you give more time to expanding your skillset, developing your negotiation skills or shopping your resume if you feel like you should make more money than other people. spend less time thinking about how the others don't "deserve" what they have.

how messed up and empty do you have to be to even think that? "you don't deserve to earn a wage that allows you to stay alive."

the middle class built america, and they did it by demanding living wages, benefits and so on. now we get to see these initiatives implode as people like you parrot the rhetoric that america should eat itself, while being surpassed by china and india's growing middle class.

Also, I thought Snyder's Watchmen was pretty awesome. Why does everyone hate on that flick?

That's the point I wanted to add here... glad to see I'm not the only one. I think he did an outstanding job on The Watchmen, including improving the hell out of the way the story concludes. I have nothing positive to say about Man of Steel, but I think The Watchmen was a home run.

Yeah, I can't get the hate for that flick, it's absolutely the best comic book film there is.

hard to quantify these things but i just plain didn't like it. something about it was off. i'm sure it's a great adaptation but as a movie of its own, nah. the pacing felt weird, the faux-grimdark atmosphere felt forced, and for how seriously it took its own story, the ending was completely retarded.

blaming dr. manhattan wouldn't give us peace. "american superman destroys moscow" would be the headline in russia the next day. i understand in the comic the attacks were blamed on a fictional alien race and that makes somewhat more sense.

That's a pretty weak excuse for requiring a constant connection to the Internet in single-player. An update on save or on exit would accomplish the same thing.

that would also make it trivial to modify game files. for an online-driven competitive game this move makes perfect sense. everyone needs to know they're on the same page.

diablo 3 does the same thing, for the same reason, and it's a relatively clean and fair experience.

... So please, shut the fuck up. When there you have kids skipping school, dropping out, due to gaming addiction you have serious problems, when you have adults skipping work, due to gaming addiction, you have serious problems. ...

This is not Jack Thompson batshit crazy agendas we are talking about here, this is a nation with a serious problem that needs solving and quickly....

What, you mean like what the US has a problem with drugs, or booze? All of that shit you just mentioned happens in the US as well, and none of it's gaming related.

that's why people under 21 can't purchase alcohol, and drugs are illegal. your analogy seems to support what he said.

since you've both been to south korea, is there a preponderance of people gaming in internet cafes instead of their own homes? is owning a home pc rare? i find this whole situation kind of bizarre.

Why are people still buying GTA 5? I mean, it's a great game and all, but you can't play online at all without being annoyed to shit from all the fucking hackers EVERYWHERE. It's so bad. I wish they would just do the lowrider update for single player.

that's the truth. i've never in my life played a game in the fucking state gta5 is routinely in. it's usually clean for a few weeks after updates before it goes back down the toilet. my crew and i just finished a heist and dropped back into my apartment and were all killed by exploding toilets that were spawned on our heads.

finding good people to play with invite-only is really the best way. it's hard to build up a friends list, though. the community is the worst i've ever seen on pc. xbox-live caliber.

it's such a waste. the content they've added is really cool, and rockstar have stated they're "all in" on online content with no plans to expand singleplayer at this time.

thinking of getting on the division but i've heard it's feeling rather bare on content. the mixed reception has kept my friends away and it doesn't seem like a good solo experience.

I wonder what D3 would have been like if Blizzard North had been left to it's own devices and allowed to finish the game. I guess we will never know *sigh*

i think the game is in a pretty complete state now. have you checked it out recently? i never played it at launch, only heard the stories..

One reason I don't often go into such matters is it seems difficult to do so without creating the wrong impression, but I guess that's to be expected. Not sure what about this would be saddening or make you regret your visiting here.

just in the sense that you're one of the last of the greats and i figured all these years it was because you had a financially viable setup. hearing otherwise just makes me feel bad man, that's all. i sure am glad you still do it though.

Healing power of poop. Holy shit indeed.

I can't believe people would honestly even consider poop transplants as a means to fight obesity vs simply eating more starches,beans, and veg. You deserve to have BMI of 70+ if you're that stupid.

this article puts a really silly spin on it. fecal transplants have already been successfully performed for people with severe gut infections. they move the poop from the healthy colon into the colon of the patient to allow the good bacteria to propagate. using this as treatment for obesity is really speculative and makes the whole thing sound silly.

it doesn't really seem like it benefits sony to enable crossplay. people grouse about exclusives and so on, but it's still the weapon of choice in the console developer's arsenal. nothing else really differentiates the products. granted this generation MS shipped hugely mediocre hardware so there's also that but i'd consider that the aberration.

Ugh. Please don't let it come to that. If it were to come down to closing the site or losing your shirt, keep your shirt. We all love the site, but I don't think anyone wants you to have a financial burden. That's too far...

If you don't mind me asking, are the amazon links helping at all?

I'm totally down with the Patreon, but I have no idea what an amount would be (per person) that would help.


saddening. for some reason i thought blue was the one beating the odds all this time or something. now i feel like a jerk for coming here for 15 years.

Her Story doesn't have the buzz or hype of some other titles, it's not usually on steams top 10 list for the week, that said it does have quite a lot of popularity as a high quality indie that is narrative driven about a high school girl who has the ability to jump a few seconds back in time. I don't know a lot lot about it besides that, but I do know that it's an episodic adventure title that has dozens of 'lets play' video series on youtube and every time a new episode drops, half my friends list lights up with folks playing it.

I see games I've never heard of win an award all the time, or be on a top10 list of best games of the year (PC). That doesn't mean they must be shit games or the awards are 'bought'. But given this industry I don't blame you for immediately leaping to that conclusion.

you're thinking of Life is Strange.

Her Story was an interactive movie game where the UI appears to be a police station database and you have to find and piece together interview clips of some woman to figure out the plot. it struck me as the video game equivalent of oscar bait.

If I had to guess, I would say harlock and rudra are the same. They both don't use caps, they both get mean when confronted, and harlock was banned; his last post was on Jan 25, 2016. rudra was created on Feb 7, 2016. Just a guess though, it doesn't really matter I suppose.

ahh, that explains it. the way rudra just appeared in conversations last month, with exceedingly angry and condescending comments, seemed really strange to me.
