They've release quite a few games between now and then.
2016: FFXV
2017: FFXIV Stormblood
2019: FFXIV Shadowbringers
2020: FFVII Remake
2021: FFXIV Endwalker
2022: FFVII Remake Part 2
2023: FFXIV Expansion
2024(?): FFXVI

Definitely no lack in Final Fantasy games coming out plus all the ports and the rumored FFIX Remake. Even FFXI is still getting minor updates and is subject to an announcement soon for the 20th anniversary.

They didn't ditch him. This is one of those cases where something private happened that Michael Ironsides didn't want public and the fans eviscerated Ubisoft. Honestly, I give Ubi credit here because they took all the hate and didn't even give a hint to what was really happening behind the scenes. He finally spoke up about it a few years ago that he had cancer and didn't even think he was going to survive.

"Sam never left, I'm still here," Ironside said. "Well, I don't know if you guys want to talk about this or not, but I got cancer and I thought I was actually going to die and I had 60-65% of not making it, I had prostate and bowel cancer and some others. I tried to walk away and put it in good hands and just walk away," Ironside worked as a consultant on Blacklist and helped Johnson play Fisher.

Netflix cancels 'Dark Crystal' prequel series after one season.

I tried watching season 1, but got too much uncanny valley from the puppets.

Damn, It was highly rated, I wonder if they'll be much outcry over the cancellation.

I doubt it, apparently it did so bad they fired a longtime executive who pushed for this project according to this article:

...with a source telling the Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that Age of Resistance's failure was one of the reasons Netflix recently pushed out longtime executive Cindy Holland, who helped bring the series to life. The series was referred to as an expensive disappointment, per the unnamed source.

No question I'm waiting on AMD...;)

Me too. The 5700XT here is currently around $550 on average. The RTX 2080 is a grand. Why would anyone pay twice as much for marginally better performance.

Because Nvidia is ahead in other ways as well. They're now on their second generation of ray tracing hardware where AMD will be on their first and Nvidia is leading the world in machine learning/AI technologies. This isn't an Intel situation where they sat around at the top and did nothing, the video card business is a byproduct of what Nvidia is cooking up these days. Just DLSS alone is an incredible technology that will boost FPS way higher than we've seen before, and AAA games are starting to take advantage of it with Cyberpunk, Fortnite and the Crysis remaster. I'm not saying AMD wont have an answer, they very well could. I have no idea what they've been cooking up. But with how advanced Nvidia is overall, it would be hard for me to imagine they'll have anything that can compare.

I wonder they are so resistant to the idea of TESVI? ESO is not the answer.

They aren't resistant to the idea. They've already shown they definitely are going to do it. Most people don't realize that Bethesda is actually a pretty small studio that doesn't hire often. They have enough manpower to work on one game at a time. First it was Fallout 4, then they worked on Fallout 76 with some other studios, and now their full attention is on Starfield. After that and its DLCs are out, THEN they'll work on ESVI. Gonna be a long wait.

They have a track record that is quickly fading. Their latest two releases, this game and WoW 8.3 have been disasters. I can't speak for Reforged but I am heavily into WoW.

This patch alone has seen one of the longest PTR phases(public testing) any patch has gotten and has been released in one of the buggiest and unbalanced states ever. From quests just not working to having to nerf multiple items by over 50%!

If you had the opportunity to watch the world first race which is a bunch of guilds racing to kill the hardest boss in the game first, it was a complete nightmare. There is even speculation that Blizzard was actually working on the boss AS these guys were pulling it. Mechanics were literally changing from pull to pull and at one point Blizzard reset the encounter because they were doing something that wasn't intended but seemed to be working. Keep in mind these guys are the first ones working on this boss so no one knows what the intended strat is.

Add that to the fact that 8.3.5 was canceled and the current storyline doesn't really have an ending it seems clear they are struggling at the moment.

They did fire a bunch of people a while ago and from what I read Reforged was outsourced to a different studio so I don't know what is going on over there. It just seems like they don't have enough people to work on everything they have going. This is coming from someone who has been playing their games from nearly the beginning, the Blizzard that is working on games now is not at all the Blizzard that built up any credit or goodwill in the community.

Nothing went wrong with virtual reality? Sony just announced they've sold 5 million PSVR units while Oculus and Valve can't keep their headsets in stock. I think VR is doing fine. The article is right though, it is still a steep price to get into PCVR but PSVR is affordable for a larger amount of people and it seems like Sony is going to continue on with the PS5.

Not saying the new Terminator will be any good or not but I think it has hope. James Cameron sold off the rights to Terminator after the second one so anything that came after was not related to him at all. He regained those rights this year I believe so this will be the first Terminator since the second to be under his control. Haven't followed the movie very closely though. Not sure if hes ignoring all the other movies and just continuing from the second or not.

They don't have keys because they aren't allowed to sell them anymore. This is the same for every third party key seller at the moment. Both The Division 2 and Anno 1800 were available until launch from key sellers but they are no longer. As of right now the game is completely exclusive to Epic and UPlay.

https://www.anno-union.com/en/ubisoft-is-partnering-with-epic-games-store-for-anno-1800/

Once the game has been released on April 16, 2019, Anno 1800 will only be available digitally on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store.

I jumped onto MoviePass the day they announced they you could see all the movies you want for $10. It has been literally the greatest subscription service I have ever had. I have seen an upwards of 60+ movies over the span of 11 months for just $110 total. The service wasn't at all a scam, it was just a dumb business overall. I'm still not sure how they were planning on making money paying full retail for these tickets and only charging people $10.

That being said their goal up front was to shake up the movie industry so they claim. And I do think they've done that. I just dumped my MoviePass and signed up for the AMC A-List service which is twice as expensive at $20/mo and I can only see 3 movies a week. But at the same time I can reserve online and ahead of time as well as watch IMax and Dolby movies, those tickets go for an upwards of $20 at prime time. The AMC service wouldn't be around IMO without MoviePass. Word is Regal cinemas are going to start up a subscription service too, and Alamo Drafthouse is currently testing theirs. MoviePass might have failed as a service, and rightfully so but we're getting some good things out of it at least.

Heat is real bad here in the Dallas area too. We've been in an excessive heat warning for the past few days. So its not just hot, its excessively hot! I think we've even broken the record for the past 3 or 4 days which have been around 108-110 before the heat index. Luckily(?) once the actual temperature gets that high the heat index doesn't really climb much higher. But good news comes on Tuesday when the 100 streak breaks at 99 then we go right back in it for another week of 100+ temps.

Do yall not realize that this client adds nothing to their "spyware"? If they want information on you they already have it. These guys own 40% of Epic(Fortnite), 25% of Activision(Blizzard and CoD), they completely own Riot(LoL), they completely own Grinding Gear Games(Path of Exile), and they recently bought another 5% of Bluehole(PUBG) bringing their ownership up to 10%. This is the largest gaming company in the world, as well as the fifth largest company in the world, larger than Facebook. They already have your information. Not trying to say if WeGame is worth installing or not but if your goal is to give them as little information as possible you're already too late. They've got you.

I'm surprised there's so much confusion about the title numbering. It isn't supposed to be roman numerals, its supposed to signify slashes like marking kills on a gun or counting days in a prison. The next game wouldn't be IIIII, it would be \IIII\(I don't really know how to represent it in text form, hopefully my meaning comes through =p).

I'm not sure how you guys think that 20hz is a low goal. This is a game putting 100 players in a fully destructible world with building in it. Other games with 64+ tick rates are low player counts like CSGO or Overwatch. The other Battle Royale games are struggling with the same issues. CPU speeds have not increased at all in the past few years, yet we continue to try and push player counts and arena fluidity further. We're simply hitting the max we can go with what we have available.

And I know someone will bring up Battlefields 64 tick servers, some even have 128 tick and that is honestly a good point. It is incredibly impressive what DICE has managed to do with their engine. But you have to keep in mind they are the only ones that have been able to do this, and they had to work at it for years. Frostbite is the only engine that runs as well as it does, takes full advantage of multicore CPUs, can handle a multitude of genres and works well across a wide range of hardware/consoles. The only other engine that I can think of off the top of my head that can do this is Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine and that one does not have anywhere near the networking ability that Frostbite has.

I guess ultimately my point is that getting above a 20hz tickrate is not an easy task for a game of this size. Only one company has managed to do it, with only up to 64 players but I do believe DICE has some of the smartest people in the industry working on their engine. They would have to with what they can put out with it. If these other companies could, I'm sure they would put in the research and figure out how to do it. And I would bet that Ubisoft has tried and failed or else we would see them competing on the same fronts with online gameplay.

I think everyone is missing the real issue on why this was brought up. Whats happening isn't the fact that controllers have aim assist, its an issue with XIM controllers.

Basically XIM takes a mouse and keyboard and translates it into controller inputs for consoles so you can use M/K controls on a PS4 or XB1. But people are using it on the PC version of Destiny 2 in the competitive multiplayer tricking it into thinking you're using a controller, but you're actually using a M/K. This bundled with the fact that aim assist is VERY liberal in how close you have to be before it locks on basically means you have a very good, fully sanctioned aim hack with mouse and keyboard.

Personally I don't have a problem with the aim assist in the PvE portion of the game, I doubt I would ever notice anyone using it anyway. But in the PvP part of the game its going to be very frustrating if you come across anyone using it. Most cheaters buy multiple copies of games when they get banned so buying a XIM and never getting banned is a very low cost for most of them. Hopefully they do decide to turn off aim assist in PvP because it could be very bad in the long run.

For those having issues with the game starting on their secondary monitors(I had this as well) you can just hold the Windows Key + Shift and press your arrow keys to move the game to whichever monitor you want it on.

Turns out that this is actually fake per https://www.pcgamesn.com/gta-6-leak-fake.

We got in touch with Tim Neff and he had this to say: “That isn't my page, account or résumé. I don't even know that website. I worked on GTA 5 a long time ago and haven't done anything since. Sorry for the confusion. It seems I'm being trolled online really badly.”

Wtf

Why would he finish it? It's already made enough money for him to retire on. Finishing the game for those who've already paid for it doesn't bring in any extra cash. Porting it, otoh, is an entirely fresh new revenue stream, so he can retire in style.

That said, why port it to the Xbone? Why not port it to the PS4?

I'm glad either of you decided to actually read the article you're commenting on. Oh wait, you didn't.

Right now, the focus is on getting the PC version out of Early Access, which Greene previously said would take five or six months. That’s where the majority of resources are going.

“We have no time frame yet exactly on Xbox [One] or PlayStation [4], but we are looking at it,” he reiterated.

It isn't a revamp, its a new section of Kara. Some places are revistited like a new opera section and a different chess section but we go to other areas and there are new bosses. The old Kara is still there for people to do at max level.

There is a lot of misinformation going around about this problem. This isn't an issue with Valve or with the developer, this is an issue with how chargebacks work.

1) Credit Card gets stolen
2) Thief uses card to buy a number of keys
3) CC Owner reports theft and starts to issue chargebacks(rightfully so)
4) CC Company takes money back from point of purchase(Steam or Developer depending on where they bought it from.)
5) This is the big part, CC Company takes an ADDITIONAL amount from point of purchase. This is money LOST from the seller, in this case Tynan.
6) It is the developer's job to disable Steam keys which often happens and is happening in this case. To be honest, I'm not sure if devs can deactivate keys directly or not but based on various indie developer reports I've read they do get deactivated somehow.

This is why buying from grey market sites such as G2A and CDKeys is WORSE than piracy. I know there are legitament sellers on those sites but you have no way of knowing if a key was bought from a chargeback or not. If it was, then not only did the developer lose money from the initial sale, they lose money from chargeback fees as well. I believe it was the Factorio devs that straight out said they would rather you pirate than buy from these grey market sites. Not because all sellers are bad, but there are enough bad sellers that it encourages this type of fraud to continue happening.

Either way you look at it, I think that it mainly boils down to CC Chargeback fees. It can be argued that there shouldn't be these fees from the CC company, but it can also be argued that it is up to the seller to prevent fraud like this. I don't personally know enough about selling from a shop online to know which side is more right but either way as it stands at the moment, the indie devs are getting hurt the most.

I believe Factorio got around this by requiring users to link their Steam accounts directly to their Factorio account and assigns the CD Key that way, like Humble Bundle used to do it(they might still do it that way, not sure). This will probably be the way Tynan goes as well if he decides to sell Steam keys through his site again.

Just keep in mind when buying this game, it has always been $30 for the cheapest version. If you see it selling for any less it is most likely a stolen key unless they are just buying keys and selling it for less out of the goodness of their heart.

Here is a link to the Facotrio post where they address this directly about midway down: https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-145
