Best focus on your business, I fail to see how the travel ban impacts the game industry. Unless your are working on Grand Theft Jihad.

It affects any industry(including the games industry) where not everyone is a Christian US citizen. If any of your employees are, for example, Muslims, they are no longer free to travel into and out of the country for whatever business/personal reasons there may be, without potentially getting shut out, and thus being unavailable for work, let alone having their civil/human rights violated for trumped up scare tactics.

This should be obvious.

I played a test round on the new map, tried the new guns, etc.

It feels pretty good, and that map style (run here to activate power, run here/here/here for trap activation, etc.) is a cool addition.

The new models also look way better in most cases than the default models.

Hrm, played a few hours of Long War 2... I do not like the infiltration system.

You can easily get 30+ enemies, with armor and psychic abilities, in literally the first mission in the game if you don't set up infiltration well. (it takes 8 days of waiting, by the way).

I'll need to look around for a Long War 2 mod that keeps all the other cool stuff and scraps that system, that's just annoying.

some of the stuff they are talking about in terms of changes already happened with FC: Primal, but nobody played it so they dont know any better..

I think most of bluesnews skipped Far Cry Primal, I know I did. Far Cry 5 looks pretty good regardless, so it's going on the sale list. I'm thinking under $20 maybe, under $10 for sure.

Personally I don't care about a delay because who cares, it's not like anyone loses anything because of it. What I do care about, and honestly I won't be buying this game because of it, is the 1 year (might be more as there is still ps exclusive in destiny) exclusivity on actual game content. It's very disappointing to see gaming outlets largely ignoring it as if it's acceptable. A strike, pvp arena, weapon and potentially more are being held for ps4 exclusive for a year. This is bullshit by any measure as that means you're paying to subsidize the ps4 players content. This is the most poisonous exclusive I've ever seen or heard of in any multiplatform game.

This is my main concern. If this actually ends up being how it plays out, with PC people waiting 1year+ for content, forget it.

Devolver had the best conference by far...

Yeah, that was better than the usual E3 presentations, although it felt a little forced to me at times.

Also, Ruiner is looking awesome. Don't turn out to be crap, and don't take another 2 years to be released.

Looks somewhat interesting, I'll probably get it. I was feeling the urge for another XCOM2 run anyway, although I was going to do the Long War.

Never thought I'd hear Duran Duran as the soundtrack for survival horror.

Duran Duran can go with anything.

Also, what's wrong with this comment section? it's all scrunched up on any computer I open it on, unlike other comment sections on Blues.

It's amazing how much of that stuff, from swimming to stalking, is hardwired.

They, like sharks, are just little meat robot killing machines. programmed before birth. What's interesting is thinking about how many human behaviors are hardwired in a similar fashion.

Also, aww, cute tiger cubs.

Aside from Chris Avellone, some of the other developers are responsible for Silent Storm, aka the greatest game only 5 people on the planet played.

I'm looking forward to this, obviously. Already got in at the $28 mark, hopefully it turns out well. Last time I looked today, they are almost at their initial funding mark, with like 20+ days to go.

Well, this could go smoothly and not be a problem, or end up being annoying as fuck if the 'Battlepoint' requirements require 500 hours of play for the best guns or something.

I'm reserving my right to bitch about this system in the future.

Hopefully whatever they are planning funds a nice 20-30 hour single player campaign though.

Looks interesting, I'll make sure to check back on it in 2 years when it's actually done.

I just hope they allow you to put more than 4 weapons/powers/whatever on your suit, that console-ish 4 weapons max thing is still aggravating as hell.

I loved Borderlands 1, liked Borderlands 2, and like the idea of Destiny, but not enough to get a PS4 and try to play a FPS with a controller. I might get Destiny 2 on PC if they don't do something terrible with it.

Well, that's good, but I already uninstalled to make room for RPGs/Open World single player games.

I'm starting to think small team(6 v 6, etc.) FPS games are inherently flawed/end up being more annoying than fun. One teammate screwing around ruins the entire match, whereas at least in large scale BF type games, you can have a few jokers goofing off without ruining the server.

News Comments > Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Officially Revealed
13. Re: On Overwatch Mei Skins Jun 12, 2017, 12:10 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Looks pretty good, and I enjoyed the first reboot+Old Blood, so this is pretty much a guaranteed buy for me.

Nice to see Blazowicz has shrugged off another 7-8(?) month coma, while being partially paralyzed(?) and still kept all his muscle mass, and about 5% body fat.

These video clips are reminding me a little of the last Bioshock; a twisted dystopian version of stereotypical America, but NPCs still walking around, living their little lives.

tl,dr: I need to put some serious effort into working on the queue.

Well, I liked the first game, so I'm definitely interested, but that trailer was probably so far from any actual gameplay as to be pointless.

Also, I really wish they had a different acronym than STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

From the description though, it sounds promising, aside from the whole "none of this is real, but you still can't find ammo" thing.

Whatever version of Frostbite engine this is, I'd be surprised if it doesn't go down as one of the most beautfiul looking(and still playable) engines ever.

DICE's trailer team is still doing a great job also.

I think I'm getting worn out on BF1 itself though; everything is unlocked, aside from a few of the puzzle weapons. I'll try this expansion out a bit, but BF1 is sliding ever closer to the uninstall category for me. I may just be getting worn out on FPSes.

I don't see why they wouldn't do another Evil Within, or a new Wolfenstein sequel, both games were fun and sold well, I believe.

I'd probably get both unless they completely wreck something.

What the hell? This non-game's trailer is nominated for an Oscar, and that Dead Island trailer wasn't?

Sacrelige.

Or ANY of the Star Wars:The Old Republic trailers, all of which pretty much blew the actual films out of the water.

I mean, I know the Oscars are pretty much a joke anyway, but come on...

That's actually a really cool idea, I hope it catches on and becomes more widespread.

Also, I hope their limited(?) libraries have a pretty decent selection, the article is a bit vague.
