Sheesh, good for Nvidia card owners; hopefully these suckers get AMD's Fidelity FX stuff working by the time I buy BF2042 or Dying Light 2.

Hrm, this looks amazing, but yeah, maybe some AI work needed. Blade Runner, with more cowboy hats, apparently, but I'm down for it.

I've seen that video a couple times, and the only source of him surviving is the Daily Mail... odds are he is actually dead or horrifically burned.

Speaking of pulled licenses, what ever happened to the LotR:Battle for Middle Earth RTS games? They were awesome, but my DVDs are questionable, and my new desktop doesn't even have a dvd/blu ray drive.

I can't be the only one that wants those re-released on Steam/GoG etc.

The second one was my favorite RTS for some time...[url=]https://www.pcgamesn.com/best-lord-of-the-rings-game[/url]

Yeah, LotR:BfME 2 is great; the skirmish mode, with the custom heroes? Man I played so many skirmish battles it was ridiculous. I love the building system and resource generation, and the heroes are a ton of fun (overpowered fun) I have been in the RTS skirmish mode recently, and looked up playing BFME 2 on modern PCs... it's doable, but basically you need to run mods/modder fixes: here, I believe. I have yet to try that version, legally you are supposed to copy all of your CDs or DVDs over, etc.

I was hoping at some point EA or whoever would release a compatible version on GoG, but they seem to have just dropped the license entirely.

Ah yes, it's all becoming much clearer now.


I'll pass on this.

You should've passed on a Bluesnews account too.

That's an odd thing to say. Are you personally hurt by learning somebody has a different opinion than you, about a remake of a video game?

Way to sink yourselves, OnlyFans.
Orange Julius is no longer serving the particular drink that made them famous: a mixture of ice, orange juice, sweetener, milk, powdered egg whites and vanilla flavoring.
Starbucks has switched to tea.
Der Wienerschnitzel is now a burger place.
Baskin-Robbins dropped ice cream and only serves breakfast.


I don't go to any of these stores, so I was shocked to read this, and thought you were serious about Baskin-Robbins at first.

I loved Quake back in the day. The demo that we played for dozens of hours, the full release vanilla, all the mods, Quakeworld DM, Quakeworld TF, CTF, I probably have a couple thousand hours in QWTF alone.

But fuck this remake/redo/nostalgia bullshit. These fuckers are trying to sell me Quake again? I already own it, in multiple various formats.

I am going to try to avoid trying to buy any remakes/rehashes unless I missed the game the first time around. Fuck nostalgia marketing and an overall lack of creativity.

Even aside from the clear dislike I have for remasters, life is literally too short to spend time replaying old shit, when there are literally thousands of new games out there to try. Some will be terrible of course, but I may find something new and great too.

Did Marvel ever follow-thru in the comics with the announced idea of Rogers being part of Hydra? I remember when I saw that announcement checking the calendar to see if it was April 1st.

It's extremely unlikely it'll ever happen in the movies.

A) Chris Evans is done with Marvel it seems, and he's getting old for the part anyway.

B) In the comics it was handled reasonably well, I do NOT think it'd translate well to live actors, aka an American Hero is secretly a modern day Nazi. A little too on the nose, and not the kind of complex or at least controversial thing Marvel's going for with their cash cows.

C) jacobvandy is right, they can do it in What If at some point if they really want to.

D) It's a lot more timely to just go ahead with the Sam Wilson version of Captain America, who isn't serum'd up anyway, and is arguably a better CA version.

Ah yes. Hacked accounts for a free to play game, for sale, for 2000 dollars. The killer asteroid cannot get here fast enough.

You clearly have no idea the time and effort it takes to unlock these things in game legitimately.

I'm sure it's a hellish grind. At that point it becomes the old debate, is it better to play legitimately, or to spend the cash if you have it to skip the grind? I am of the opinion that you should just play the game normally and get whatever unlocks you get through regular play. If you get bored, quit and uninstall.

I guess a lot of people loved Valheim, but I feel like I wasted money buying it. I didn't find it engaging at all; I feel like I've chopped enough trees in games to last me for the rest of my life. I couldn't last through that portion to get to any bosses, which I hear are interesting. Maybe I'll reinstall it whenever the full release is out.

No surprise here, they are vaguely following the comics from like 8-10 years ago or so.

Although they did skip Bucky's stint as Captain America; good choice though. He had way more redemption time in the comics.

Suicide Squad: The Do Over was really good; I enjoyed it, far more than the first version.

These Honest Trailers have gotten pretty damned formulaic though, I'm not enjoying their format as much anymore.

How goddamned expensive was this thing to make? 3 million sales at $60 each is 180 mil! BF, COD, et al. all cost around 50 mil to make - forget marketing budgets. No way this cost more than that. If they don't even know the actual numbers they're getting screwed. Hire a good law firm now.

Hrm, now I need to go look it up, but I can't picture any of these recent AAA games being made (sans marketing) for 50mil, try 4 times that number. Time to try to find a reputable source for that.

Think twice, buy once, a gaming laptop can be awesome! Also, you or your kid will get stronger, lugging that 25 pound metal brick around. Plus the power converter, mouse, headphones, etc. and a backpack, you're looking at maybe up to 40 pounds before you even add books! People pay good money to get that kind of rucksack workout!
