Epic needs to step up their game if they want to compete against Valve.
No kidding. The pace at which Epic are adding functionality to their launcher/store makes it seem like they hired someone to work on it for 2 hours a month. Of which an hour is lunch break.

I can't believe you decided to go the McDonald's route for quality comparison. Cyberpunk doesn't give people stomach problems when they play it.
True, it gave them seizures instead.

For those not in the know: Cyberpunk 2077 included (they've since modified it in a patch) a light sequence very similar to what's used in a clinical setting to induce an epileptic episode. They helpfully included an epilepsy warning... buried in the EULA.

this is just another cowardly lynch mob pouncing at the first sign of weakness. It's nothing. It means nothing. It isn't unique. Every company has to deal with the mob one way or another.
What country do you live in that has this as a work culture? Seriously, it sounds horrifying and I can promise you it is not a universal thing. Believe it or not, there are entire countries on this planet where the workplace is not a war between "management" and "workers". Where no manager would feel disgruntled workers are "waiting in the shadows". I pity you and hope you find yourself in a more healthy work environment in the future.

So my fam and I have been doing a lot of gaming lately, including L4D2. There are 4 of us, so one of the games I wanted to play was Evolve by this same studio.
Not related to this studio, but if you're on the lookout for a 4 player co-op game (works fine with 2 or 3 as well), my strong recommendation would be for Deep Rock Galactic.

I got to the part where you get the shotgun and I stopped playing. I guess I can't get past the weird way you move through the world, the teleporting is seriously off-putting

Is normal/smooth/fps/whatever they call it, movement something they added after you played it? Personally, I preferred teleportation but with the movement requirements of combat I found that I had to push myself to get used to smooth movement. I did stop playing it during a pitch dark portion later on though. I really dislike the horror element of the game, especially when they put you somewhere without vision just so you can have stuff jump out at you. I don't mind creepy, I do mind jump scares.

It was modern WoW. But my point is that we just wanted to run through the content asap because our goal was just to level up and journey through the classic part was just terrible, because it felt really old.

We differ quite a bit in what we want from the game, then. I always found the end-game content to be boring and much preferred the leveling experience. Modern WoW, to me, made the leveling experience so simple and uninteresting that there was no reason to keep playing, so I quit.

I do believe you'll hate classic. Considering they revamped the lower levels with Cataclysm, to try to cater to the new audience, the original classic will likely be unendurable for you as it's even further removed from what you prefer.

A friend and myself rolled new characters like half a year ago. The "classic" part was pure fucking agony, dungeons included, and we couldn't get to the expansion content soon enough.
Did you somehow play what's currently referred to as WoW Classic at that time, or just roll new characters in "modern" WoW? Because if the latter, the _whole point_ is that that experience is not even remotely comparable to Classic.

I obviously can't speak to whether it would be your cup of tea or not, but gameplay wise they are so different I'd argue they can be thought of as different games within the same setting.

Is this to try and win back people after they bowed to Chinese law?
They did this the previous season finale as well (that's when I started playing the game, so I don't know if they've been doing it even longer).

I wonder how many who are outraged over those textures being changed to unify builds, are also outraged at how movies/games tone down nudity and cursing to not get hit by unreasonable age ratings in the US.

So is the game any good now, or is this circle jerk thread about who has the biggest dick in the room?
I'd say it depends on your expectations and preference. I saw where the game was headed and didn't pick it up at launch. Eventually, after a number of updates, I picked it up at a deep discount and found it to be.. perfectly OK. Not groundbreaking, not crap, a decent indie title.

They've patched it with content numerous times since that, so presumably my take on it today would be OK+.

It's still a game based on procedural generation, and those will always be a mile wide and an inch deep, so it very much depends on whether you find the core gameplay loop (exploring/gathering resources) enjoyable. Check out a recent gameplay video or someone streaming it, I'd say, to get a sense for whether you feel it's worth your money.

Might be worth it for VR (Rift or Vive) depending on the game you're using it with.

Then again, who the fuck has $1200 to spare on a graphics card?
A lot of people, to be fair. Most adults in the "western world" with a decent job would be able to cough that up if they're into PC gaming. Some without thinking about it, some by prioritizing it. The question is, how many will feel it's actually worth it?

I'm still on a 980 Ti, and I'm considering it. I can't imagine why anyone with a 1080 Ti would, though, unless ray tracing games becomes all the rage in 2019.

I've yet to play the last one. Heard very good things.

The gameplay was fine, but the amount of cut scenes nearly drove me mad. I didn't time it, but in at least one instance I don't think I'm exaggerating much if I say there was a five minute cut scene, one minute game sequence, then another five minute cut scene.

I ended up skipping them. It led to some odd "wait, where the hell am I, how did I get here, why is this thing happening?!" moments, but that's a price I was willing to pay. Unfortunately that still left me with the annoying hub area you constantly have to run around for a bit in order to start the next mission, as well as the in-engine cut scenes which were unskippable.

It's the only game I can remember that I very nearly didn't bother finishing, even though I enjoyed the gameplay. I would've paid extra for an option to remove all the padding and replacing it with a few sentences of text summary to keep the story coherent.

Sorry for the rant, had to get that off my chest.

The April cutoff is when the game launched Early Access on Steam. Before April you could only buy it via their website and that included a line saying "includes all future content" unlike the steam early access version. I think it's actually incredibly decent of Take 2 to remember this promise.
After some googling it looks like it went on Steam in March, but they honor purchases through April and thus early Steam buyers also gets the DLC. (I bought my copy on Steam in April, and did.)

So I basically just want a more modern version of Freespace 2. A single-player space combat sim with fun scripted missions and an engaging story line. Has anything like that been produced in the last 5 years?

Everything I can think of is either a rogue-like (e.g. Everspace) or has a crap story or mostly generated missions (e.g. Rebel Galaxy). But, you know, if you're desperate enough, one of those might be worth a look.

My point was that I'm glad the devs got a big bump for actually releasing as opposed to staying in EA forever. It will incentivize other EA devs to finish their games.
Technically, one could argue it only incentivizes releasing. "Ok, we've made no changes for months, let's bump the version number and call it released."

Subnautica was made right, though. They regularly added major features and content throughout development, and released once they had the story and end game completed. I've been playing it off and on since early 2015, but have held back for some time now to make sure there's something fresh for me to play now that it's finished.

Amazon patching is only the first news of this, things will become much much more grim soon
Microsoft has already patched Azure. They originally gave a few days warning to give you the option of restarting at your convenience, but when the vulnerability was published the next day they just went ahead and restarted everything. Which was great news, as we host (well, manage, technically) customer solutions that need manual intervention after being restarted. So, yeah, good times.

I'm actually interested to see this on No Man's Sky.
I still wouldn't recommend No Man's Sky myself, but my one line review would be "No longer horrible, worth a look at heavy discount." It still has a lot of atrocious user interface and usability issues that gets in the way of playing the game, but the good news is there _is_ a game there now. That there was a spike around the latest content patch seems to indicate that many were waiting for that to happen.

My complaint about the graph is that the graph itself doesn't zoom to the selected area, so there are large areas of just a flat line due to the scaling from the amount of initial reviews.

That sounds like some sort of compatibility problem with your system.
Have you tried DDU or did a clean reinstall of your os?
Has worked fine for many years, upgrading driver causes it to freeze up, downgrading driver and all is fine again. Any compatibility issue was clearly introduced by the newer driver versions, thus my question of whether they'd finally fixed it or not.

Given the options of reinstalling the machine and spending a good deal of hours getting my work environment back up and running, and just not upgrading drivers, I'm happy doing the latter. Ignoring driver update notifications is an annoyance I can live with.
