And with that warning from Creston I am not even going to bother trying my Humble Monthly copy.

Reminding me of all the good reasons I stopped playing MMOs years ago.

What an idiot, our economy is going to crash again. There's no way we can sustain a first world deficit with a 2nd world economy. Worst possible idea and time to start a trade war. No way we can win, starting fights with our friends. We owe China more than 11 trillion(bush), that doesn't even include the interest. This is going increase the chance of recession 10 fold.
While the gap between the 1% and the rest of us will continue to widen.

All according to plan perhaps? If there is one thing 1%ers hate, it is not feeling extra special. Widening that gap is the best way to ensure that the rest of us don't have access to the things they do and never will.

Just for the record, I was not saying that Windows 10 was a shitty OS. I was referring to MS exclusivity regarding it and their games along with DirectX exclusivity.

Although I really don't like the sneaked in updates when I turn my back. Why the hell are you asking me permission for some updates and then totally ignoring my opinion for others MS?

Slick and several more people on here are acting like MS hasn't done this shit already!

Fallout 3 on Games for Windows Live sure was lovely right? The Arkham games on Games for Windows Live were divine weren't they? I'm sure we all lamented when GFWL got removed from these and Red Faction Guerilla.

This has nothing to do with wanting MS to sell through some one else's store, it has to do with the fact that they keep proving they are shitty at managing their own. And to answer your questions Slick, I do not buy through Origin or play EA games pretty much ever because Origin itself keeps flagging my geographical location incorrectly and charging me stupid extra.

If you want to use the wonderful Windows store, go ahead. I, on the other hand, have no interest and don't want the bother.

The shitty OS and DirectX exclusivity is yet another reason for me to take a step back from this. Jesus Slick, do you just post for the sake of being the contrarian?

I mean I honestly have no idea why I should give a flying frak about poor, downtrodden MS taking whatever hit the other digital stores charge. I'm a consumer. I consume what is best for me. Others have that right and I'm fine with people who use Origin or the Windows store, it just won't be me. And from the looks of things, I'm not alone.

For me it comes to down the fact that there is nothing I really want from Microsoft except non-exclusivity of their games on the console side.

Just make your games and then port them to PC and sell them through Steam, GOG and other established retailers.

What MS keeps trying to make fit is some kind of return to Windows Live that nobody liked or wanted. Your store will never be the cool thing you want us to believe it is. Stop getting involved in aspects that don't matter to us. We have GOG, Steam, GMG and a host of other, better digital retailers.

All MS has to do is decide if they want PC gamers to enjoy the same games they are putting out for console and if so, then just stop getting in the way of that. We don't want your shitty store and its front end.

And when he started this BR clone 4 years ago... what would he be cloning?

Good point, hard to see in the future but there were examples of this from quake 3 arena "last man standing" mods back in the day. I remember playing something similar to a battle royale back in Quake 2.

Obviously this is early 2000 and it took till ~2016ish with PUBG and The Culling to really catapult this genre.
The Culling? The Culling never really started. And now its dead. Stupid devs again. The players told them what they want, but they ignored them.

I think players underestimate how difficult it is for developers to change direction and alter all their future plans regardless of the wants of the majority of players. Not getting it right the first time is a near-certain death-knell.

That's not really anyone's fault. Hindsight is 20-20 afterall. This is the risk of trying to make a multiplayer only game.

I agree with WaltC, maintaining a XP machine is pure madness.

And a security disaster waiting to happen if you have it on an internet-connected network.

More business for GOG.

Win / Win!! Steam clears out their cruft, and the GoG guys make a few more bucks.

Really only just a few though.

Podsmith re trailer reaction

I just leave it here for all you heathens. No need to bitch , game is in good hands. I'm more interested in underlying philosophy, than superficial aesthetics, raincoats dudes in rain out in night neon lit streets been done hundreds times over, don't get me wrong I love that as well but those guys aim to give us a bit more than that.

People are quite simply ridiculous. Corruption, greed and depravity pretty much always hide under shiny exteriors. A dark future has nothing to do with depressing weather. Is it set in England or something?

You, your just being jerk because maybe you get off on it. I said "some of us", so you being gay and wanting to look at guy butts, shouldn't be offended. I clearly wasn't trying to speak for everyone. Obviously has nothing to do with T&A. I would rather look and listen to women than someone like you any day. It's always great to have Neanderthalic conversations with you. Giggle

Yeah wow. You really got me. I'm obviously gay because I find it stupid that your problem with lack of a female lead in a video game is related to ass.

Clearly the issue is not that you're too lazy to do any research before mouthing off crap and that you apparently can't be comfortable playing male characters in video games. Your sexual insecurity isn't poking its head out at all.

It's OK to admit you like playing with female dolls. Sorry your parents didn't get you a barbie when you were younger.

I'm getting a Cyberpunk gta feeling. It would be great since CD Projekt RED is far more capable than rockstar.

On the plus side, it would be a huge step above rockstar if they can just give us a version where we aren't forced to play villains. Sadly the first thing that sticks out is being forced to play as a male character. Not only does it reduce RPGness by 50% out of the gate. Some of us don't want to run around for 10+ hours plus looking at some guy's butt. Urk

So you're just ranting for the fuck of it? From the first announcement of the game it was stated that you build your character from the ground up, gender included. This has been known for years.

As to the rest of the nonsense, if you're playing deep RPGs for T&A, you might want to check out this oddity called "the internet". I hear it can fulfill all your digital ass needs with very little effort. How the frak old is the average Bluesnewser now? 10?

"We moved away from publishers and toward indie development/crowdfunding so that we could make exactly the type of games we wanted without oppressive restrictions. This is better for our customers and better for us."

Yeah I was thinking the same. I had almost forgotten that it existed since I played it quite a while ago.
