I can't believe the guy has the balls to fling names like that in the first place, given that his reputation for train-wrecked projects is now legendary (even post-id/ion).

This is the most unsurprising KS flop in its history yet. They may as well have tried to kickstart Duke Nukem Forever 2.

Why not? Chris Roberts managed it after all! Zing!

Star Citizen had a visual impressive prototype and showed a neat video of it... not to mention that Wing Commander *was* amazing.

You don't say....

What many people forget is that Kickstarter does not sell empty promises anymore. Nowadays you have to show you can actually make what your pitching. And I assume even more people have doubts Romero can make what he is pitching. I mean, he is a level designer so it was even more weird not so see ANY in-game in-engine whitebox design at the very least.

This is going to be an interesting case once the EU notices this... last time MS got a gigantic fee, but is that really abusing a market position? Google Now / Siri is not exactly any different, and Cortana is, at least on my W10 enterprise version, optional.

But, is it gold enough?

It's never gold enough.

Hehe.. well I am hyped anyway.. And I liked the gold filter, but I am also partially colorblind so whatever. To me it didn't look gold but orange.. so there is that

An 18 year old is not a teen....

Is this a language thing?
Eighteen

It is definitely a language thing, until you wrote it I didn't even see the connection. Teaches me another aspect of the language though... does that mean that I can call anyone below 20 a "teen" (without denying them the status of adult?)?

i'm actually kinda excited to play Doom single-player... i'm sure it will be more fun than Duke Nukem Forever

But every dentist appointment ever would also classify for that comparison....

That said, it doesn't look as horrible as it looked in the trailer, not sold on this weird 4th wall breaking challenge/skill points nonsense though. Why is it not all part of the game world?

For Fallout 4, the real modding challenge would be to add a horse mod before the horse armor mod though ;p

The thing I don't get is why they don't implement some meta progression that allows you to gain progression in a different level of gameplay by playing every now and then.. like a clicker game for a dungeon crawler, except maybe with some production values

Of course it is - also why its not recommended for sourcing with some articles clearly being written in groupthink or misinfo by editors.

Exactly ;/ The wikipedia principle of "citation required" has lead to some absolutely absurd pieces of wrong information, and which hilariously enough is often SO WRONG that not even the scientists quoted in said articles can correct it, since it goes against what is cited...

I mean I get the idea behind this, but there are topics where this principle is absurdly silly, and often leads to exactly what you say, groupthink above true knowledge.

The lighthouse units do fine sitting or standing (as long as one of them has a view of the headset). One of my Lighthouses failed, so I was stuck using a single unit for a week, which worked for non-360 degree stuff.

How do games detect the Vive/Controllers? Is it something you have to assign before start and hope the game actually works, or is it in-game?

Reason I am asking is that I would think this could become a huge issue if oculus games and vive games suddenly have mutual exclusive api... so you are always locked out of some games...

Talking about HOTS and balance.. recently tried out Smite, and to say that this game is balanced is like saying moon-rocks are made out of cheese.

Point being, since then I actually think HOTS is pretty decently balanced.. compared to other F2P titles anyway.

So at what backer tier do you get to virtually choke John Romero? Also, that was some truly horrible voice-over work. Might be an interesting game, though. Did I miss what game engine they'll be using?

Unreal 4.. it's way at the end in the FAQ

Wow, lost for words...the logic of your average redneck redditor is astonishing: some journos fall for a trollbait = WE WUZ RITE BOUT TEH #GG GUISE!!!111!

*facepalm*...also, HL3 confirmed.


So you don't consider fact checking (that takes like, 5 minutes for this) kinda important for news sites ?

Article is beating that dead horse though, true Doesn't make it any less valid.

Does Blue never get anything wrong? Is he infallible, or is it just that people overlook it because they like Blue and realize he's doing so much that the occasional mistake, error, or bad article will come through?

Blue is an aggregator, not a journalist. There's a rather significant and obvious difference there.

It's not like these were serious stories. When it comes to these one-offs, these sites are basically also aggregators.

They fell for a Reddit hoax. I don't think there's a single news source out there that hasn't, be it in sports, politics, world news, economies, etc.

Saying "that 24 year old who has to write 5 blurbs per day on IGN should have spent a few hours going into the game and verifying this" seems unreasonable. But this is coming from the same people that, when Kotaku broke news of Fallout 4, claimed Kotaku was being unethical.

It would have taken like half an hour tops to verify the story. Don't call yourself a journalist if you can't do basic journalistic practices and are literally just copy-pasting what you see elsewhere.

As for Kotaku, if you want examples of lack of ethics and proper journalism, the leaking of Fallout 4 is among the lightest of things that site is guilty of. If you think that's a journalistic site, well fine but we have very different definitions of journalism is.

Half an hour is an eternity in internet time, and half an hour is something these people don't have. Look at this forum - a huge chunk of people here claim they use ad blockers. Running these sites isn't hugely profitable, and there's zero chance that the half an hour it would take to verify this would get paid back. It's time poorly spent.

I do not think Kotaku is journalistic, which is also why GamerGate's fury at them over "ethics" confuses me - it's a blog. And leaking Fallout 4 was something they did actually journalistic, so calling it unethical is asinine. 95% of what they do is idiocy and not worth reading, but when they actually do some investigative reporting and come up with something interesting and valuable, people cry "unethical!" even though it literally violates no ethics. It's just people grinding an ax because they have hurt feelings.

Which is what this comes across as. Website fooled by reddit, film at 11. Happens all the damn time. Who cares? No one lost anything.

In fact we gained something ;p

Imo it's far worse when gaming sites use youtube content from people without asking permission or giving credit. Seen that dozens of times (especially with mods)
