Because the world isn't filled with enough useless plastic garbage we now need to 3d print more of it.

Jesus fucking christ, is there anything you people won't complain about?

You pay full price, and then all the good stuff is available for purchase. Welcome to gaming in 2017.

Vote with your wallet. The more people keep buying shit like this, the more publishers jizz all over themselves and keep doing it.

Oh look, the same tired line that's been trotted out since horse armour. The "vote with your wallet" campaign has been SUPER effective. Yes, yes, it's the fault of those horrible people who keep buying it. Curse them, without gamers gaming would be amazing!

So let me get this straight.

All you Destiny hating panty waists are upset over colored armor, colored speeders, glow effects and other worthless micro transactions you dont have to take part in? GET A LIFE

You're obviously a child and new to gaming because these things have always been - and still are in good games - free. Or at least players have the option of making them themselves. As well as hosting their own servers, setting their own rules and conditions, etc. See, those are good things. When a company denies you choices, or presents you with the illusion of choice which is really just a way to needlessly keep their hand in your pocket that's a bad thing. And when you support those sorts of bad models it makes it worse for the rest of us. The reason evil succeeds in this world is not because people say yes to it, but because they don't say no. Grow up and stop thinking only of yourself. That's what children do.

Hey, Cutter - what fucking game are you talking about?

What game has seamless online co-op with campaigns and raids that also allows full modding and dedicated servers and/or player run servers?

What fucking utopia are you playing that the rest of us don't have access to?

Get with the fucking program, the thing you're talking about doesn't exist because it's untenable and unfeasible. Grow up yourself.

I applaud them for that. I just wish they would have gone for more than a glorified tech demo for the late PC beta.

Jesus fucking christ. Why is it every time a beta comes out people expect a demo? Betas are for stability, stress testing, and to give you the tiniest taste.

And of that teaspoonful you're already "over the game"?

Jesus fucking christ.

News Comments > Mass Effect Andromeda Promises "Totally Softcore Space Porn"

We're okay with as much profanity as we can handle in games.

We're okay with getting smashed or high in games.

We're okay with loading clip after clip and emptying them into enemies–human, alien, zombies, whatever.

And we're going to buck at a little fucking?

What a strange lot we gamers are.

Someone on the first page said it's a shame Bioware has come to this? Come to what? Writing romance and sex into games with exploration, adventure and violence? Yes, it would be a shame to see that in entertainment. I'm certainly glad Game of Thrones doesn't delve into any of those things. Or Mad Men. Or music. Or thousands of other types of media.

I don't think it's remiss to say this: it's an M-rated title. Stop putting sex on a fucking pedestal and recognize that it's an acceptable focus for video games. Grow up.

This is why the gaming community at large is so damned toxic. The guy sits down to do an honest post mortem and the first reply is a fucking meme.

Is there an example of what an original post looks like and one he modified? I'd be interested looking it over.

The original post read "Fuck /u/Spez" (spez is Huffman's username). The revised post substituted spez for the username of a member of a subreddit called "the_donald"

A lot of the internet seems rather salty over this and I am not sure why. Seems like a neat little something classic coming soon and a small pack to come at a later date.

Salty, huh? What kind of salt would that be? Hawaiian Black Salt? Himalayan Pink Salt? Fleur de Sel from Brittany, perhaps? Maybe you're implying something nautical, like an 'old salt'? Too much sodium in their diet possibly? Or is you're just on the irritating as hell "salty" bandwagon, much like when everyone was just as irritatingly describing everything as "epic". There are over 400,000 words in the English language...find something else besides "salty" already.

You sound a little frustrated. Why can't you just look at this stuff and say...

"Na".

bleh, too little, too late, really.

Grim Dawn and Path of Exile both have way more enjoyable and complex leveling and itemization, with only slightly worse engines.

Better get to work on Diablo 4, Blizzard.

Grim Dawn and Path of Exile weren't nearly as fun for me. I definitely want more Diablo. Don't care if it's an expansion or the fourth.

Path of Exile makes me want to slam my head into my desk every time my buddies insist on reinstalling it.

Beside heavy video editing why else would you need more than 16gb?

With the aggressive memory management in macOS, you don't. People like to bitch though.

Insular BluesNerds still not really getting it.

These are Pro level machines with design and hardware that fits the bill there. The killer app is macOS, and the features that people will pay for include the trackpad, the battery life / performance / size / weight ratio in a unibody aluminum enclosure.

Complaining about the Esc key is so very much what this group could be predicted to do. Let's ignore that it's going to be in the same place, or that you could remap the caps lock key to it. Let's ignore that the Touch Bar is doing something different and appears to have more software support than existing OLED bar implementations. Let's ignore the TouchID component with a dedicated secure enclave, the incredibly fast SSD, the WCG screen, the stupid fast ram, and the option of AMD 450 or 455 Pro graphics up to 4GB on a portable device, capable of driving a retina screen and two 5K displays.

No, these machines are too expensive!

Guess what, you cheap sons-of-guns: you were never even on Apple's radar to buy one of these things. You are NOT a lost sale.

"We know there are a lot of suckers who buy into the hype and pre-order our games or buy them on Day 1. But bad reviews cut the rails off our gravy train when they come out before release because people read them and cancel their pre-orders or decide not to buy on Day 1. So, from now on we will make sure there are no reviews until after we have milked our cash cows dry."

They literally say wait for the reviews in their fucking response. How on earth are you coming to this conclusion?

60 FPS in moment to moment gameplay (PS4, Xbox One, PC, 30 for WiiU)

What the hell do these words even mean? It sometimes runs at 60FPS? But only between fights or something?


Yeah, I read that as "it will sometimes hit 60FPS, but usually it runs a lot slower."

I think it's meant to imply the opposite: despite high action it'll be 60fps.

Think I'll just watch this play through on youtube. Exactly the same thing. After game of thrones, I'll never give talltale another penny.

This actually isn't correct anymore. There are more interactive elements in Batman that really add to the experience in my mind.

Embarrassing to see folks here bite on Kotaku click-bait. They've since amended their headline to state that Sony will not charge for these updates; any developer that does think about doing would most likely be bundling it into DLC. I don't think we'll see it become an issue at all.

It's Blues, so the fact that there's any positivity at all means that it's most likely the greatest game ever made.

Only The Register could call selling 1.6 million of a $300+ product a bad thing. What a fucking shit show of terrible analysis. Simply looking at numbers and making calls without any context isn't analysis, it's regurgitation.

Boo, Register. Boo.
